LAURA LOU BROOKMAN pmted out that while .Japan has no fortifications or Ijjbiaaes-in Ameracan waters, we have some in far eastern Almost under. "Japan's doorsill.

And now it developes that the Japanese SeFthatthe exact reverse of all of this is true. We fear what ' do, they fear what we .may do—.and misunderstand- suspicion increase year by year. ^" There are two sides to .every question. It is a good thing fat we, are able, at this stage of the game, to get a look at apan's side. \ffc- Stories of Atrocities stories of anti-Jewish atrocities on the part of the f ^vr government in Germany are dreadful— if they are -true; but it might be the part of wisdom for us to reserve |> decision on them for a little while until we get a better idea 1^-jvWch tales are based on substantiated facts and which one pare pure rumor. ,X - ,A. Jittle more than 15 years ago we had another crop ot -Utrocity stories from Germany. We went for them hook, line (ginker at that time— and have been ashamed of oui ever since.

"Yes, I'm late. And how kind it's been ot Miss Hill to entertain you. You didn't by any chance coine early /did you?" "Betty, don't talk nonsense!'" She came /into the room tttenv walking slowly. She came until she stood ttalf-way between them. Looking directly at Hoi' she said, "I will.talk whatever and wheN••,-. ever I like and I don't think you'll try to stop me.

"I didn't hear you," she told him, and her voice, naturally low- pitched, had a touch o£ husklness. She hurried on, as though It were Important to keep on speaking. "It's dark in here, Isn't It? 1 don't know why the lights haven't been -put -on. Everyone seema to be gone—" "I came to meet Betty," Rolf explained. "If she's not here sbe will be soon. Janet—I've never seen you looking so lovely." lie was almost beside her now. "There's something about you tonight! What is it?" She smiled. "The dress, perhaps. It's new. Do you like It?" "You look beautiful!" Buster, the cat, squirmed uneasily in her arms r and Janet bent to.put him down. "Thank you for the compllmei-t!" she said, look- Ing up again at Rol(, and managed to say the words lightly. Sbe moved to tbe table, touched the lamp and the room was bathed In a warm, amber glow. "There! That's better." Rolf followed. "Please don't go!" he urged. "Stay here and talk ta me. I've been wanting to ask bow things are going with you. Is everything all right, Janet?" "Why. of course." "That's not wbat I mean, 1 mean—really!" His sleeve brushed her arm and Janet stepped away. Then she met his eyes directly. "Everything is perfectly all right," ahe (wore. "Mrs. Curtis Isn't here," she said. "She went driving with Mr. and Mrs. Thornton." "Oh, she's not here?" It was Betty speaking. "Well, in that case^If you can spare my hus- band—^ve'll be going." ''Betty,.for Lord sake, what are you trying to do? Haven't 1 a right to speak to Janet—?" "Janet? So that's what you call her. Really I didn't know as they had'before.

Nothing had happened, but how ^perilously narrow was the margin! • It was a good thing- Betty had come, even though she nad misunderstood the .situation. Five minutes more alone with Rolf and Janet knew she could not have, trusted .herself. She did not quite trust herself now. * She moved about the.room nervously, picked up a magazine and put it down. There was nothing to which she could settle down. Finally she undressed and 'hung ;away the whlto gown. She filled the tub with water, bathed and. though it, was still early, turned •out tire' light and slipped into bed. If .Betty ever mentioned the scene in the library to her mother Mrs, Curtis did not speak of It. (Continued from page one) violent thunderstorms extending over an area from Philadelphia to perhaps 20 miles at sea to the eastward off the Jersey coast. According to Lieutenant Commander Wiley's message, the ship cruised In various directions for possibly four hours at an altitude of about 1,600 feet, trying to find a way out of the circle of storms which finally surrounded it at midnight. Although this accident occurred at night, it is very similar to the circumstances surrounding the destruc. tlon of the Shenandoah at Ava, O. Destroyed by Sen The ship being surrounded by storms and lightning, became unmanageable,,and lost altitude rapidly. Despitn the dropping of tlie water ballast to prevent this rapid descent, the descending air currents were too strong to be overcome and the ship was driven, stern foremost, towards the surface of the ocean. It apparently hit with such force as to demolish the structure. Commander Wiley and the men who were rescued were apparently on watch at the time and managed to grasp some floating objects as the ship crashed. The rest of the passengers and crew were 'probably pitched into the ocean and due to ! the darkness and heavy seas dorwned before the rescuing boats coul darrive. You can discount any lightning.the- ory. There has been no proof in the history of liyhtcr-than.air ships that one has been destroyed by lightning. "No More," Says Vinson WASHINGTON.— (f?)— "There won't be any more airships built. We have built "three big ones and lost two." With these words Chairman Vinson of the House Naval'Committee declared war, as a result of the Akron tragedy, upon construction of further lighter-than-air craft so long as he handles authorizing legislation. It was the commilte of which Vin£on is chairman that approved authorizations for the more than ?20,000,900 spent by the navy on airships and fields for them. After announcing the committee would investigate the accident; and declaring his ban on further building. Vinson added: 'First the'Shenandoah and-now the Akron. The three (airships built) cost us more than $12,000.000 and we have left a $3,000,000 ship, the Macon, which isn't yet in service.

Fish, flfipubllctm, New Vork, on the House floor proposed that a Special House committee be set up to study the disaster. He said a report made by two Justice Department agents who Investigated sabotage changes against Paul F. Kassay, an "Austrian officer," contained "extraordinary" statements and never hnd been published. He would have the special committee study that report. Vlnson held that the Justice Department's investigation had 'wound up" the Kassay case. • He reminded that a year ago last month the Naval Committee, after extended hearings found 'that "if there wns any poof, workmanship or faulty material used in the construction of the Akron, the same was corrected before the ship was completed." Largest IQ World AKRON, Ohio.- (fP) -The Akron was the United States first home-built dirigible of the Zeppelin type nnd with its sister ship, the Macon—now waiting Its maiden flight—shared the distinction of being the largest in the world. The Akron was 785 feet long with a maximum diameter of 132.9 feet nnd held 0,500,000 cubic feet of noninflammable helium gas. making it nearly twice the size of the Graf Zeppelin. Its length was equal to the height of a 54-story skyscraper. ;Powered by eight Maybach engines capable of developing 4,480 horsepower, it had a maximum speed of 84 miles an hour. Its cruising range was 10,580 miles, enough to make a jaunt to the north pole just a week-end trip. Its rings forming the hulk, and the keel, were made of duraluminum. There were 11 rings, large enough to encircle a 10-story building. Carried 5 Planes The Akron was able,,to carry five fighting planes in a lower compartment. There were two control cabins, one forward and one aft, the latter designed for emergency use. The shio carried an electric power plant and a system of 18 telephones. The 36,000 yards of muslin, specially treated 'to resist fire, covering the hulk were painted with aluminum, chosen for sun resistance but responsible for the Akron's silvery appearance. To make the hull of the ship triple that of the usual Zeppelin the backbone of the ship, or its keel, was of triple strength. The metal of;the keel, as well as the great rings which constituted the framework, was of dura- luminum, punched and flanged wherever possible to give it strength. in Famous Radio P* C*»ffte» to StU- i "Hello Everybody' TELEPHONE • "Hello, Everybody!" first fulUength featuris from n story by Farmifc <.„_ show Thursday matinee andj Friday night at the Sfientfer t The film tells the Morjf of', patent and blg-henrte« ffttm; has .successfully itt6fik farm since her father's veyors. from a San J and water company .,. neighborhood to buy up 'iljtfi$ farms.

Chestei'field cigarettes were first manufactured more than twenty-five years ago. At the start, they were sold at a loss, hut the quantity sold increased steadily from year to year, until now Chesterfields are sold in great volume at a very small per- ucalage of profit. The Chesterfield trade-mark, as indicated ahovc, is registered in the United States Patent Office. This means that the United Slates Government says that only Chesterfield may use this trade-mark for cigarettes, This is not only for our protection, hut for yours as well, because what the Chest- © 1933, LIGGETT i Mvm TOBACCO Co. erfield trade-mark really means is that you and all Chesterfield smokers will get Chesterfields manufactured under the same formula, by the same people, and in all respects absolutely the same, in every package you buy, year in and year out. Wherever you buy them, in lliis or in any other country, you can depend upon the Chesterfield trade-mark. lesterrie .0 atFLSiul 16 Organizations, »ician«, Seeking StUte Title FORT SMITH, At-k.-(/p)-The oit will be filled with music for two days when the state band contest? open here April 14.
