The lost of Russia's friends amofij,' American liherals have sent their regrets that they arc no longer .just lil« that with the Soviet Republic and wondering how they ever not thai way in Die first |)hice. One of the most, devoted friends of the U. S. S. R. in (he clitys before the courtship of Adolf Hitler WHS John Haynes Holmes, pastor of the Community Church, New York. Getting up before- his congregation m Town Hall, New York, Sunday, ftlr. Holmes liffw- atively bowed bis head and confessed lie and his fellow liberals had been horribly wrong about Russia. "If we liberals wore right on certain single aspects of the Russian Revolution, we were wrong, disgracefully wro'ng, on the question us a whole," lie said. Most •sympathizers -.vorc jolted oil' by the Nazi-Soviet non-agtfrc.ssion treaty. Even fellow travelers and parly members fell by llie wayside in alarming numbers, a little confused still, but- aware that their attitudes toward Russia had undergone a delinitc change. A few stuck by Joe Stalin, perhaps hanging on to Hie faint hope thai this was all a delusion or that the pact was preliminary to a brilliant diplomatic coup against Fascism. In November, Red troops invaded Finland. There wasn't much left for sympathizers. .Americans who liatUspmehow stood by Stalin through (lie ; days 'of I he purges; : tlid Spanish civil war duplicities, the counterfeit ing rings, the inner espionage of the Kremlin—these American friends, who had swallowed hard bill had accepted all all-ceilies as unpleasant means to a desired end, were now sold out bv Boss Stalin. Clipped of their ideology, built up around the Soviet experiment, it wasn't easy for American liberals, who were not Communists, to flick off with the snap of a finger all the things in which they had believed for 20 years. They were left out in the cold. Like Mr. Holmes, they feel they "deceived myself as well as been deceived." Mr. Holmes did not spare himself. He recounted all the horrors winch liberals liifc himself and thousands of others who have preferred to remain silent were once able to justify. The despoiling of the kulaks, enforced collectivization, concentration camps, purses—they t,|l become real. Russia's ex-friends know now (bat they do exist. Mr. Holmes points his own moral. "What can we learn from this ghastly experience—not only we liberals bill everybody? That immoral moans can never lead to moral end:).' That power invariably corrupts and ruins those who use it arbitrarily and unrestrictedly for however good a cause." Fighting an Old Taboo Syphilis is still talked about in wliis- |)cr,s. it was taboo for so long, the word still sounds slightly indecent. Ami because of the <>vil connotation that lias,grown around the disease itself, medical men arc .still hampered in [heir efforts to combat it. No one knows clearly how many persons may bo infected. The spread of compulsory tests as a preliminary to issuance of marriage licenses has aided the light against this disease 11 liille. Most recejil estimate, reported by the American Social Hygiene Association, Inc., indicates fi per cent of the population in (his country is affected. Other estimates hiivc varied from \V-> to 10 per cent, None can be considered accurate. There is no conclusive way of arriving at a llgnre. At leas! not until victims are less reluctant lo submit, to treatment. And until people, unaware that they may have the disease, permit examinations. To prevent the dangerous later stages, most people, whether they believe they arc infected or not, would do well to visit a doctor. There need be nothing more disgraceful about getting treated for syphilis than fur diphtheria or measles, Tiina for f/u; Climax iUost people love a good mystery, but they like to reach (be solution before the intricacies of the plot bore them to death. Wosl of us have enjoyed the suspense of the third term 'issue. Kveryoue has ventured a qualified prediction, even if he had no more to go on than the number of primes in the President's breakfast dish. But interest is beginning to thin, and irritation is likely to set in al any moment. The fun of speculating is wearing nut. The time i is over-ripe for ;ln announcement. The jokes are getting hollow, and the candidates who are waiting feverishly | 0 try for -their lirsl term are gelling sulky.

After a day's frantic search he still couldn't, find Marie La Poi'lc, That was bad enough, but (lie models ;il Varncl's had told him thai even it he did find her, they didn't think she v/ould see him.

"Cheer up, kid, you'll get over it," she said, not unkindly. "There iive plenty more fish in (he sea." She giggled. "So long. Don't for- ect my telephone number. Come — girls swished off, exotic, peacock-like figures in Varncl's gorgeous gowns, A cokl fury, followed the hurt in Dan's heart. .It was the first lime lie had, even been crossed in his life iind he didn't )ike it. H never occurred to him Hint he could want for something and not have it. Now, he wanted Marie La Tortc more (lian anything he had ever desired in his life and he couldn't have her. » * t AS he swung east on 57th Street he qualified that statement. Perhaps, in lime, lie could have Marie. But deep down in his heart he knew that he didn'l want her (lie.way he thought. He wanted her lo love him for himself, not for what he could buy her. And it she didn't want him this way— and she evidently didn't—he wouldn't have her, although it might kill him. In such a mood, he fitfed his key into the lock of the Donovan front door, furious with himself and fuie, "Your falhei- wants lo see you, Mcesah Dan," Ling told him, as he crossed the hall to the elevator. "He's in his own apartment." He nodded and pressed the third floor button on the elevator indicator. "I'm glad you've come, Dan," Mike exclaimed, looking up from his easy cliair as Dan walked into BY HELEN WORDEN • . uij.- iludy. "] sijii , ns , an W ) la [ ; said this morning over the phone.' Dan didn't speak, just sank down on the couch and lil cigarel. "I meant what 1 told you ovei the phone," Miko repeated. "No boy of mine is going lo marry a girl whoso father calls him a waster." He snarled as lie voiced the words. "Ignoramus! He must think we're pgmbskulls. Well I'll show him." He rose and began stalking around the room. 'I wouldn't worry, father," Dan held up a protesting hand, "II Marie doesn't want me, I don'l want her. she evidently doesn't- so that's thai. What have you got on your mind?" Mike slared in amazement at his son. 'You're amenable lo reason I must say, lad. Well, you ask me honestly and I'll reply in like manner, I thought you and myself, Lynda Martin and her fulher, it he can come, mighl have a quid dinner together tonight at the Hit/. After that, mailers can lake their course." Dan said nothing for .several minutes. Finally he spoke, despair in his voice. "I'll "call Lynda. What time is the dinner?" Mike's heart ached for his son He knew what the boy was going through. He also knew thai he coula only help hy not putting salt on.tho wound. Therefore he mentioned neither Marie not- Bat. "I thought we might have cocktails here," he remarked, "Ihen go on to dinner. I'd welcome Ihe chance to get uetler acquainted with James Martin." * * * jMONE of the effort which Lynda had exerted to produc." her falhor showed when she and Mr. Martin strolled into the Donovan library at 7:30. He was trimly iurncd out in black tie and dinner jackel and she wore an expen- "Wc'rc having a fine wine, lad," ho cautioned, "pop'l stunt your palate for lhal." Nothing but Dan's young constitution kept him from showing ihe c/leets of the oilier drinks on top of the early cocklails. Tin; only immediate warning, which ins father recognized, was an added courtliness of manner. He deferred to James Martin with tin; solemnity oj u judge. -He paid elaborate but circumspect compliments to Lynda and ho directed the waiters in the grand manner. In spite of the combined maneuvers of Miko and Lynda, no mention ol the engagement between herself and Dan was touched upon. Once Mike got to his fcel ,-ind was about lo lift his glass in a toast lo Ihe romance, bul Dan, with the uncanny intuition of Hie very drunk, anticipated his fallior. "To James Martin," lie stumbled to his feel and lifted his glass, 'America's real benefactor." Irritated, Lynda had also raised her glass. Bashfully, Martin remained 'seated. The Donovans were a good sort nftcr all. Ho must see Mike and Dan more often. Mike and Martin had winked .... one another and said good night earlier in (lie evening. Hut as soon HS he could, Dan deposited Lyjida al her door. Too light to clearly formulate his thoughts, he had but one idea in mind, to get to the rarge, Holly. He had completely forgotten his lesolulion earlier in the day. - sively simple, long-sleeved evening dress. "My dear fellow," cried Marlin, lolding out his hand lo Mike, "I'm so glad, you asked me." He shook hands cordially enough with Dan and then reached feverishly for a dry Martini on the ray which Perkins passed. "I've lad a hard day at the ofh'ce," he ipologized. Lyjida gave Mike an affectionate ;lance then slipped quietly to Dan's side. Appreciative of her silence, he lifted a cocklail from ?crkins' tray and took a second tor himself. » t * ALTHOUGH Dmi didn't show il, he was already tight when :licy left the Donovan house. His •iitlier cast a troubled glance al lim when he insisted on order- ng more cocklails at the Rib. PUZZLED taxi driver deposited him after 2, on Pier Six. Unsteadily Dan made his way lo •. .lie place where the La Porte boat lad been lied up the morning before. A strange barge, grimy and imkeinjil, bobbed, at anchor 'in its ilace. "Where's the Molly?" Dan yelled al a policeman leaning against the barge pier lamp-post. Jerry McGiiire untwirled his light stick. "She pulled oul al 12 o'clock," he said, "tor Canada." "Was Marie La Porle aboard?" "I'll say so. I saw her gel on ibnul 8 o'clock." Dan sat down on the pier and icld his head in his hands. "When will the Molly 'be back?" he inquired. ."In about three weeks or a nonlh.
