Daisy Dorothv Heard. I Editorial Comment Written Todoy and Moved by Telegraph , .or Cable. C By DeWITT MaeKENZfE / Associated Press War Analyst -British Foreign Secretary An- Eden told the Mouse of Com: yesterday that complete postwar cooperation of Britain, Russia ^and the United States is assured, adding that "the recurrent threat , M war- can only be met if there is an international order firmer in > strength and unity than any enemy p;could seek to, challenge." " j, "We three, can work together," said Mr. Eden. He didn't attempt ' t6 be more specific about a method of maintaihirig peace. ' There probably are few people of the United Nations who don't hope earnestly that war's end will ,/IJrjoctuce some sort of organization *-that will insure peace and general- jay promote^Jhe welfare, of mankind. That Echoes a desire which h, rttns back through the centuries to the dim days before the Christian r era. It's a desire which still re- ^matas to be^Ttulfilled, despite num- |'"'erous«aftenvbts to implement it. ^ Because so many millions of folk ; ajee eagerUsto see this ideal ^ achieved, it'* reasonable to believe " that snccessjwill be attained in due course. It'sMikely that partial success will be^a comparatively early •» v reward of oiit efforts. j * I think we? may save ourselves much disappointment, however, if t we figure ttfat it will take a long 4ime to reach the ideal.

A lot of people " like to place the blame on the -fact that thejUnited States declined f to'' become s a. member, but that's ' ^far. from a complete answer, ','Actually the league was split into power grouijs, and there wasn't a ."chance of getting concerted action applying ^Sanctions by force.

Prices backed and filled in a narrow range under alternate influ- N-nominal. NEW YORK STOCKS New York, Dec. 15 — (/P) — A sharp rise in certain liquor shores and specialties found other sections of today's stock market unresponsive and most lenders continued the narrow and uneven drift of the previous session. The high-bouncing American distilling registered an opening nd- vance oC 12 1-2 points on disclosure of the company's plan for | transferring its holdings of whisky to stockholders at a price well under the OPA ceiling. Profit taking reduced the extreme Bain. Park Tilford pushed up more than 8 on reports the company planned release to shareholders of a part of its whisky stocks at cost.

Many a super-colossal cinema epic had wheezed to a halt because the sound track had re- voted when the actor came down with cold. Bob Hope reported between betes. Wagner was •sentenced to a life term for participating in the $1,380 holdup of the Cottage Grove state bank in Dos Moines in 1025. Since entering the penitentiary he had contended he could neither walk nor talk. For 18 years Wanger traveled in a wheel chair and communicated by writing notes. He had always insisted he was innocent. Prison'officials always believed Wagner could both walk and talk if he tried. "He was walking a little just before he died," said Warden P. A. Lainson. "I saw him up on his feet trying it." Other prisoners had reported hearing Wagner talk in his sleep. Wagner was captured in St. Joseph, Mo., ^ three days after the j holdup in a'gun battle with police.

Acknowledging Germany sensitivity to the Allied nerve war. Goebbels issued new directives for 1944, and declared: • "While the heroically fighting German soldiers are making void all enemy attempts to destroy us, the homeland proves worthy of them, by pulling up an admirable attitude to Ihe brutal violence of the Increased nir lerror and the nerve offensive connected with it. Gobbols said the Gorman people had sustained "wounds and scars during Ihc past few months," but were determined to do Ihclr utmost and "are prepared .for final decisions."

"There is no one here but I." She put her little basket on the table, and went up to the back of the couch. She leaned over to look at his lace, and gently touched him on the brow. "Are you quite as well tonight? Your head is not so cool as in the afternoon." "Tut!" said the student, petulantly, "very little ails me." A Uttle surprise, but no reproach, was expressed in her face, as she withdrew to the other side of the table, and took a small packet of needlework from her basket. "I have been thinking, Mr. Edmund, thgt you have been often thinking of late, when I have been sittjng fey, how true the saying is, that adversity is a good teacher." The shaft of his ungrateful glance fell harmless, and did not wound her. "Ah!" said Milly, with her tretty head inclining thoughtfully on one side, as she looked down, following her busy fingers with her eyes, "When 1 have seen you •:o touched by the kindness and attention of, the poor people downstairs, I have felt that you thought even that experience some repayment for the loss of health, and I have read in your face, as as if it was a book, that but for some trouble and sorrow we shoulc never know half the good there is about us." His getting up from the couch interrupted her. "We needn't magnify the merit," Mrs. William," he rejoined slightingly. "The people downstairs will be paid in good time, I dare say, for any little extra service they may have rendered me; and perhaps they anticipate no less. I am much obliged to you, too." * * * TLTER fingers stopped, and she •*"*• looked at him, "Do you believe, Mr. Edmund,' she asked, rising and going nearer to him, "that I spoke of the poor people of the house, with any reference to myself? To me?" laying her hand upon her bosom with a simple and innocent smile of astonishment, "Oh! I think nothing about it, my good creature," he returned. »"I have had an indisposition, which your solicitude—observe! I say solicitude—makes a great deal more of, than it merits; and it's over, and we can't perpetuate it." He coldly took a book, and sat down at the table. She watched him for a little while, until her smile was quite gone, and then, returning to where her basket was, said gently: "Mr. Edmund, would you rather be alone?" "There is no reason why I should detain you here," he replied. She made up the little packet again, and put it in her basket Then, standing before him with such an air of patient entreaty that he could not choose but look at her, she said: "Jf you should want me, I will come back willingly. Wnen you did want me, I w'as quite happy to come; there was 90 merit to it. You owo me r.otliing; but it i = right that you should deal us justly by me as if I was a lady—even UK- very lady that you love; and iC you suspect me of meanly making much of the little f have tried to do to comfort your sick room, you do yourself more wrong lhan ever you can do me." If she had been as passional" as she was quiet, as indignant as she was calm, as angry in her look as she was gentle, as loud of tone as she was low and clear, she might have left no sense of her departure in the room, compared with that which fell upon the lonely student when she went away. * * * JJE was gazing drearily upon the place where she had been, when Redlaw came out of his concealment, and came to the door. "When sickness lays its hand on you again," he said, looking fiercely back at him, "—may it be soon!— Die here! Rot here!" "What have you done?" re^ turned the other, catching at his cloak. "What change have you wrought in me? What curse have you brought upon me? Give me back myself!" "Give me back myself!" exclaimed Redlaw like a madman. "I am infected! I am infectious! I am charged with poison for my own mind, and the minds of all mankind. Where I felt interest, compassion, sympathy, I am turning into stone. Selfishness and ingratitude spring up in my blighting footsteps. I am only so much less base than the wretches whom I mak-i so, that in the moment of their transformation I can hate them." As he spoke—the young man still holding to his cloak—he cast him off, and struck him: then, wildly hurried out into the night air where the wind was blowing, the snow falling, the cloud-drift sweeping on, the moon dimly shining; and where, blowing in the wind, falling with the snow, drifting with the clouds, shining in the moonlight, and heavily looming in the darkness, were the Phantom's words, "The gilt that I have given, you shall give again, go where you will!"

Origin of Reuters Story Is Revealed London, Doc. 15 —W)—An authentic account of the liouters dispatch from Lisbon which reported conclusion of the Cairo conference a day before the news was released officially and which has been the subject of controversy every since became available here loday. The information appears to have originated with Thomas Chao, Chungking manager for Reuters, the British news agency. Chao was cnroulc lo London for several monlhs' leave in Britain. He was Iraveling as a passenger on a plane carrying a Chinese goodwill mission lo England, bul he had no connection wilh the mission. When he landed in Cairo Chao heard from every side thai the conference was in progress and saw visible evidences of it. He was not accredited lo the Cairo conference and was under no obligation as to information he picked up as a traveler. The next stop of the plane was Lisbon, where the Chinese party icmained from Nov. 29 to Dec. 2. When he arrived there Chao called on Douglas Brown, Reuters' Lisbon correspondent, and told him what he had seen and heard of Ihe Cairo meeting. Brown filed the story to London.

Foreign Policy Plan Submitted by McCormick Detroit, Mien., Dec. 15 — (ff)--^ Col. Robert R. McCormick, editor and publisher of the Chicago Trib- .inc, called loday for a "realislic and palriolic" foreign policy^ proposed a limitation of the prcsidenl- al lerm and slated his creed of Americanism. He quoted Lincoln in telling the Detroit Athletic Club in a prepared address "this counlry, with its in- sliluUons belongs to Ihe people who inhabit It." "1 will say this much of the postwar world," McCormick said. "We should insist on retaining such of the islands as we have saved from, retaken or taken from the Japanese as will secure our future safety from atlack; we should retain air bases wherever we have built them; and we should secure now, by Irealy, the right lo fly directly everywhere we want to go. We should make such other arrangements as will provide for our security. After that is taken care of, we may do what we can for the general welfare of the world. "As one means to that end, I think all European governments should be required lo liquidate their holdings in this hemisphere." McCormick said "nothing could bu more fatal to our country, and for the countries which some of our cili/cns prefer to,our own, than some grandiose scheme of world government." ' he said, "because ils members ho said, "becuase Its members would not stand by their agreements. II is utterly false to say that our non-participation had anything to do with the failure. "We became on of Ihe parties lo Ihc nine-power agreement lo protect the integrity of China. When we wished to act in accordance with that agreement and slop the Japanese aggression, all Ihe olher parties, including Ihe British Empire, refused to keep their agreements." He declared soldiers enduring great hardships in the war will not, after H is over, "allow themselves lo be used as Hessians lo carry out Ihe ambitious views of people at home who are thoroughly enjoying the war." Turning to two incidents "which not many people remember" after the World War I peace, Col. McCormick said the Communists attempted a revolution in the United Stales in 1919 and thai Ihe general slaff feared a British invasion by way of Canada during tension over naval building plans. "The Communists incited a strike at Gary, Ind., and planned to disrupt the railroad center of the country by violence in order to break down our economic life and open the counlry to revolution, said By J4AL BOYLE An American Air Base in Italy, Dec. 9 —OT — Even the stout nerves of Maj. Gen. James Doolil- lle, Ihe man who introduced Tokyo to the American air forces, quailed in an Egyptian "chamber of horrors" in an Italian villa in which he and his staff were quartered temporarily. Thn village formerly had belonged lo a lijgh Fa.'jcist official will) an Orienlal layle in arls. He used .some of his rake.off money to decorate one of the main rooms entirely in an Egyptian motif. It is a room that would haunt even Salvador Dali, the arlisl who paints bad dreams and melting watches. The walls and ceilings were a patchwork of violent red, purple and green stripes, lit with glaring white electric lights. Crazy- quilt tapeslrics hung like dime slore rainbows. The furniture carried an animal pattern. Carved wooden ibises with long tapering horns stood at the corners of the chairs and couches. Under one table a stuffed crocodile leered'through glassy eyes. "The villa wasn't suitable for olher reasons." said Capt. - Brian parlicular. gave everybody Ihe creeps, including Ihe general." Afler two weeks another villa was found and the staff moved out, leaving Ihc slutted crocodile behind to Worry Ihe nexl lenant. , Lt. John P. Ilickey, Pittsburgh lawyer, chronicled the first game of donkey baseball in North Africa played by the headquarters squadron ot an airforce command on Thanksgiving Day. This is an ex- cerpl from his official report "Officers and men played the first game of donkey baseball in North Atrica as a prelude lo Iheir dinner of lurkey and cranberry sauce. Major Clinton Hosleller, commanding ofticer of headquarlers squadron, a residenl of Salt Lake City, Utah, arranged with native Arabs to furnish donkeys for the game at the rate of two packs of cigaretles per donkey. "At 12 o'clock 57 donkeys of various grades had been rounded up of the fourth Inning. "The donkeys were difficult to handle, refused lo be ridden and for the mosl part stayed in one place like the blankety blanks they are. "The Arabs were willing lo enter into the game and prodded their untrustworthy steeds without fear, favor or partisanship. "Outslnnding man on Ihe field was Major Leslie Olsen of Chicago, 111. He had more lhan unusual abilily lo handle his mounl. This may be due to the fact that in civilian life Major Olsen was with a motor car company. "Captain Russell Lairy of Lafayette, Ind., roamed the pastures with his Arab-trained donkey for an inning or so, and then surrendered. "First run of Ihe game was scored by sergeant Marc F. Katz of 'Youngstown, Ohio. No credit is due him for this achievement because he lifted the donkey on his shoulders and carried him around the bases. . "When the game was over, Lt. Henry J. Boyer, squadron adjutant, of Springfield, Mass., appointed one of the Arab boys to distribute the cigarettes as payment. "The donkey caravan then wended its way into the. hills and moun- humor and soon the 'Donkey'Sefe* nadc* was being whistled up afia down the line.
