The conference is composed entirely of women, interested in bringing peace to (he world. The ladies have no desire to .sec the war go on simply because they adore watching a bloody light. If they had their way, the wav would end right now, and Hitler and Slalin would be brought by the scrulT of the neck (o sit around a (able to talk things over with other state leaders. Unfortunately, European affairs are in} longer as easy as that. The women allied with the conference are fully aware of that. If a series of appeals by President Roosevelt could liring about peace in Europe, the conference would be only too happy lo endorse such a move. There is little reason to believe that the President could produce any such result, unless conditions ' change drastically. Beyond that, there is probably another consideration. The members of the conference are not interested in- peace as a mere word or as something that goes on between wars. 1'ciice, they agree, must be permanent—or (\K permanent as anything in llii.s world can bo.' The men who sit around the peace tables must not have their tongues in tlieir cheeks, their lingers crossed. The problems thai brought about war must not be left dangling so thnt another generation 'will again feel impelled lo bear arms. And American intervention should be reserved for such a moment when it will be most, effective. At the same time, the peace conference must not be put off until hales have been beat into a white-hot fury —until the wolves are ready lo sit down for the feast. Heal peace cannot come out of such an arrangement. The ladies were not sure when (hey met in Washington which course they- should recommend. They didn't mean, "Which course do we prefer?" but rather, "Which course will be most effective?" If they had any choice, they would .stop the war at once. The attitude of the distaff port ion of our population in days when war is abroad is m i g h t y important. The twinkle of an eye, (he lilt of ;> pretty head, the toss of a curl, the curve of ;i _lip_canj>eml a peaceful man off to the OUT OTffi WAY nearest remiitini? stulion with blood in his heart. Mothers, swcclhcnrls, w i v c s — all must lake ,1 de/ijiilc .stand on the question of war. Whether they belong to peace organizations or not, they must help deckle whether this country wants peace iind what kind of peace it wants. It is not an easy decision to make. II. is nol hull' us easy as it sounds. If (he bands should ever start playing again, it will he almost impossible to decide honest lv. A Jol)—l'\>iv Applicants T|u> City of Now York has :i perfectly KOO<| §'l50fl-a-.vcar leaching job open in its .school .system—but Uiero were only Oiroo (lor.son.s on linnd prepared lo take an examination for the post. Tho job is that of leaching radio communications. New York bus plenty of people who could use a $-1500 job. Apparenlly il has only three <|tialifi«l to fry for il. The same .situation developed a couple of times before when leaching positions were available- in oilier Icclmiciil fields. The trouble is (hat people in Ihe radio coimmiuicad'ons Held haven't got the necessary credits for teaching. ( And I hose people with the academic ' preparation aren't qualified for technical mibjecls. People who lake up radio and oilier technical .subjects usually do .so Ihrough the medium of short-term courses. Those who spend more time in school shy away from technical subjects and concentrate on llic more popular Holds. How much more needs to be done in Ihe field of vocational guidance is evident whenever something like the New York situation pops up. Li IMS Horses Or. John Edmund Hasson of Hath, N. Y., still makes his daily rounds will] a horse and buggy. He says he knows it's ii bit old-fashioned, but he will continue' lo use his ancient means of transportation for two reasons; because he loves hov.sos and because "I have reached as lain of mind where I propose, for the residue of my days, in so far as possible, to follow my in- -cli Millions." If he can got away with it, the good doctor will be doing what most of us never quite have the courage to do- living his own life, all by himself, unmoved by the new automobile of the people next door or the picturesque bonnet, of the neighbor (o (he right. Perhaps it isn't strictly according lo (he code of progress; but Dr. Hasson happens to like horses, and so he's going to keep his.

Bat had hailed ihe captain of Ihe lug and slowly the little fleet had turned, headed back to New York. This is what Marie had hoped would happen and yet, wlien it actually became a fact, her conscience rebelled. A flush of shame colored her cheeks now. She had not been irought up on a barge for noth- ng. She knew what it meant for ier father to give up— to fail to deliver his cargo. But stronger than her regret had been her mad desire to see Dan, to forget every- hing, and to try to make him forget Lynda Martin. Now, none of that mattered. She lad burned her bridges. ^^ Marie.
