NOW FOR THE FACIE Addas Governor Lehman haa an ­ nounced that he will direct that an extraordinary grand jury investigate the Westchester County land deals, and that a special attorney general ^ supersede the district attorney the purpose. Justice Arthur 8. Tompkins will amide over the ''extraordinary il and trial term of the Supreme Hr. Lehman makes K quite plain ~ he and Governor Roosevelt nave ~ into this decision by the action of the majority of the Board of Supervisors _ __ , on Monday, petitioned Justice Twnrlrins to place the matter before ttift October grand jury. flte reaction of the man in the Street to the petition of the super- vfcore was anything but favorable, ft had all the appearance! of a self- Ajndnrtsrt investigation. : Mf. Lehman removes any sugges- 1ft* of the suspicious-minded that the Tjesstigatin would not be thorough. He places it in the hands of an able end experienced jurist — one recent ­ ly occupying e similar position in re ­ lation to tite Queens oewtr case. The district attorney of Westchester County wfll be excused from present- ing Hie ease and he will be relieved of embarrassment. • We ore now assured that we will cat the facts in the Westchester land deals in a legal way. Every person who wishes to be heard will have the opportunity to go before a grand jury and tell his story. There will be no partisanship inside the grand jury ITie grand jury Is a pretty useful instrument of justice. We need it now in Westchester. TWO KINDS OF WORKERS A friend was talking to us the ether day about a young man who *ed just left his employ. \He did hat he did do, well, ” was his re- taric, \but he had one fatal- failing -he was slow. ” This man is the employer of many and we could not help but won- while he was letting this man ecause he was slow, how many he was retaining in his employ — were fast workers but of whom i could not truthfully say, “ They do ,Aat tikey do do, well.” Speed seems to be the quality meet' l demand in the business worM J(n- 1 is constantly trying to inritfSoe ..put,and men are being encour- ' to produce mqre.

The most important thing of ■cording to our views, is to have done right . If work was all jn that matter speed would Vy be cut down but there I be oo many fewer mistakes to *,o»d much less defective work 4d to be done over. It is true as it always bos been, that 7 “ ELVES Recently we commented on the vofee doubles which the talking pic ­ tures have brought us and to much baa bean written on the subject that the picture-goihg public is looking with suspicion on all the actors and actresses in the talkies. However, many of these are able to speak for themselves, and are -cot obliged to fall back on any voice double*. We have just seen an interesting symposium in which many of these folks of the talkies have made affi ­ davits that the talking, singing, etc., which they seem to do in the pic ­ tures, they actually do without any outside help. Colleen Moore assures us that all the talking and singing she did in \Smiling Irish Eyes ” and \Footlights and Fools ” was done without the aid of a double and that she has never been obliged to resort to such aid. Joan Crawford, Robert Armstrong, Ina Claire, Betty Compson, Bessie Love, Leatrice Joy, Eddie Quillan and a host of others all testify that they have really accomplished vo­ cally all that they appeared to ac ­ complish In their talking appear ­ ances. .9 . This is gratifying for all picture fans for we like to believe our favor ­ ites are possessed of all the qualifi ­ cations which they appear to have. It seems to detract from their efforts when we are left with a lurking sus- & icion that Some unknown artist may e doing a most important part of their work for them. It is also gratifying because we find many of our favorites much more versatile than we ever suspect ­ ed back in the days of their purely pantomime effort. Of course the voice double will continue to figure in our talkiee for we cannot expect all onr superb actors to be fine bari ­ tones and- tenors nor all ouf flapper j stars to have voices possessed with operatic greatness. That we may know just what we are getting, how ­ ever, we think the producers should make an announcement where the stars do all their own talking and ainging and that in other cases the unknown artiita should be given credit for their contributions.

He concedes that the drop will not be uninterrupted and does not venture an estimate on the extent of the drop. This expert be ­ longs to one school, but there exists another well defined school which E phesiea gradually rising prices I interest rates during the ensuing two decades. The belief that prices will drop is baaed primarily upon post-war his ­ tory. After the War Between the States the cost of living and interest rates gradually declined. As soon as the nation returned to the plow and machine the commodity supply began to approximate the demand and prices took a tumble. When cap ­ ital was diverted from the munition ­ ing of armies to the financing of farms, homes, industries and rail ­ roads, money, which during the War Between the States had been obtain ­ able only at extortionate interest, be ­ came cheap. The foretellers of still higher liv­ ing costs and money rates doubt that a growing ind expanding country like the United States can enjoy the felicities of cheap money and food. And yet the nation probably grew more rapidly during the twenty years following the War Between the States than it will grow during the twenty years following the World War. On the basis of the War Between the States statistics the public can look forward with some degree of as ­ surance to lower living costs and in­ terest rates during the next two de ­ cades, although few believe a return to pre-war l evels is poss ible. After a druggist^ apprentice mas ­ ters the names of the eighty-five brands of candy bars, he spends a week each memorizing the names of tooth pastes and concoctions listed under the general * heading of sundaes. \To remain young, associate with young people, ” says a Mayo brother.
