America Contributed War Ideas to Japan • A^ American who feels that the Japanese have shown /* themselves un for a crew of greedy and Unprincinled " : muscle-men by their unprovoked assault on China ought"to 1 re P\ind himself that a pretty fair part of it is America's Along with the rest of the western would, America made Japan what she is today. The war in China and all the horrors that go along with it are not native growths. The orient im- popted; therhVarid we Americans, did our share of the shipping. * fault. Th.e whple recent history of Japan, for that matter, is • by way of being a sharp, ironic commentary on our "civiliza- ' iron. xxx U NTI1L, the middle of the 19th century. Japan was living like , a silk-vyorrri in a cocpon. She neither knew nor cared . Hfhat vyas going on,, in the outer world. She was the "for- bidden kingdom" in sober truth. Nobody could get in and ; nobqdy could get out: as, a result, Japan 'was living in the •" middle ages. Then the dikes were broken. If you remember your > history." you may recall that it was the United States navy '• which broke them. Japan came out of her cocoon and con-: t ' frqn^ed iji world' which,' had got about six centuries ahead of , her. And it was right there that the western world, including America^ handed out a stone in place of a loaf of bread. , ' ~" Fqr the Japanese seem to' have looked around and de> cicjgd that the more advanced white nations were relying on i a policy of force, pure .and simple. No matter which nation ' Japan took for an example—America, England, France, Ger- fijany, Ryssra—she could not fail to see that national expan- "~ sipjij grosgecity and greatness were being sought and won at the point of "the bayonet. And the power of example is the ". most forceful of all arguments. So Japan fpllpwed suit. She modernized her army along / western lines. She built a great navy along western lines. She • adopted a, policy of imperialism along western lines. She saw ; what kind of game was being played, called for the same sort of carets, and set out to get all she could out of them. t- XXX S O what is happening in China today is happening because . 'Jaflai} learned her lesson from the western world too well. „ The yery airplane with which Japa.n is scourging China non- combatants is §n American invention; the idea of usine: it on -. defenseless cities came from Europe; and the notion of taking another natipri's territory by force may well have come—in * t>Jarf. at lea,st—from our own excursion into Mexico in the 1840's.* Before we unload too much moral indignation on Japan, ^ we really ought to examine our own record a little more 'closely." Crowding N^tijre pyEJtY school boy knows that America's fields and forests are no longer as rich with wild life as they were a few generations ago. Most of us assume that this has been due simply to the advance of civilization, with the growing of cities and the increasing cultivation of the land crowding the wild -creatures out. ' But a reminder that much, of this crowding ou,t has been fluids needless is voiced by Frederick F. Jordan, under whose direction there is beinor formed a national movement to save and restore our wild life resources. "Today," he savs, "once wooded mountains and hills ptahd. as scarred and barren monuments of a nation's neglect. Streams,, once fertile now are choked with the refuse of industry or the, sewage of cities, and anuatic life has been killed 1 off. It has not been alone the march of civilization that has sealed, and destrpyed these resources. It has been wanton car^l p ss.n,eBS a.nd iernorance." The undeniable truth of this assertion should spur us to .Sljpport the wild life conservation movement with all our energy. When Mr. Mussolini Visits Mr. Hitler WOUUP VOU BOYS THOSE sieeves?

Cherry Trees Are Symbolic in Every Child's Backyard Let us teach ch'ildren moral courage. There is a sorry lack of it today, a tendency to weigh facts and escape consequences. When I say "moral courage," I mean the directness exemplified in the cherry tree incident. "I did it, father," has more in it than meets the eye. Fear, the Coward-Maker It is not merely'confession; it is marching up to a situation without fear. Fear is the basis of all moral cowardice. It is walking on the other side of the street to avoid the man to whom one owes money. It is fear to make up one's mind about a job, and to drift along hoping for something better. It is the fear of what'.people will think about us. When we are doing the best we can, what do others matter? Children today. I believe, are perplexed by the demands of a complex society. So are parents. There is' only one answer that I can see. Gp back to fundamentals and use bravery. Bravery means being frank and honest. Children, it seems to me, are losing moral courage. Moral courage means being honest with self, and acting true to convictions. It does not mean stubbornness or prejudice. Every human ber ing has some deep sense of rightness in himself. He cannot live without knowing right from wrong in many ways. Conscience is ruled by training, but even if the training is poor, the adult picks up a knowledge of what as fair and what is not.

CHAPTER XV CONTRARY to Cilly's expectations, the funeral services for Amy Kerr were well attended. She had asked that they be held in the smallest parlor, and now the room was almost crowded. Harry Hutchins was there, of course, and Harvey Ames. With Mr. Ames was his partner, Mr. Wakencld, and four others whom Cilly recognized as employes in the realty office. Obviously they held Amy in high regard, despite aer short association with them. Immediately following the service Cilly noticed that the steps of the funeral home were lined with photographers. For the first time she realized that the newspapers were playing the case. The murder of a young girl was always meat to the public interest. Thus far the reporters had secured very little information, either from Cilly or the police. There was, after all, little to tell of Amy, and there were no photographs. Tomorrow's papers would probably strike a new theme. "Is the Murderer Among These Who Mourn Amy Kerr?" they might inquire, with innumerable question marks. There would be these pictures of the small group leaving the funeral parlors, with apr propriate arrows to indicate Miss Priscilla Pierce, who shared the apartment with the victim. . . . Mr. Harvey Ames, employer of Miss Kerr. . . '. Mr. Harry Hutchins—but no, Harry had lingered inside. Probably he had foreseen this. Harry preferred his photograph taken at the smarter places, linked with the notables, Miss Gloria Harmon in particular. * * * TT was not much more than an T hour later when Cilly returned from the cemetery. As she turned |nt« the cr.Uance of the Bayview, $hu iioard, through the open window, lh<: ringing of her own telephone. She hastened her steps. It was Sergeant Dolyn. "Soy, Miss Pierce," he said ab- ruptly. "I'd like you to come down to headquarters as soon as you can. Something I'd like to talk to you about." "I'll leave immediately," CUJy assured him. She hung up, a little fearful. She went into the bedroom to freshen her make-up. She combed her hair and set her tiny little black hat at 'a more rakish angle. It strengthened her self-assurance. Half an hour later, she sat opposite Sergeant Dolan in a small private office down at police headquarters. "Any news of your boy friend?" Dolan asked her, almost before she was seated. He flung the question at her abruptly, startling her for the moment. Her self-assurance weakened perceptibly. "No, of course not," she said, "not since—" She stopped, realizing that she was about to say: "I>?Qt since his postcard yesterday." It was just one such little slip that Dolan hoped for. "Not since when?" he asked, instantly alert. "Not since Sunday, of course. But I did discover something very imporlant," "Let's hear about it." * * * "DRIEFLY, but in detail, Cilly "*"* told him how she came to find the Blueflelds newspapers in the incinerator: she showed him the sections she had reclaimed. She told him of her visit that morning to Mr. Johnson, and of his peculiar literary tastes. "Another thing," she said, "Detective Martin apparently forgot to consider Mr. Johnson yesterday when he was collecting alibis for all the tenants. He might very well have been up there on the roof—he goes up every night to lock the door—and he was the ly one who came out of the front door after Amy was killed." "Did you see him come down the stairs?" "No, I didn't. I assumed that he came up from his rooms in the basement. I was looking at Amy —not at the front door. I only know that he was the only one v/ho came out of the house before the police arrived." Sergegnt Dolan shrugged tus wide shoulders. "It doesn't look to me," he said slowly, "as if you have much of a case on Johnson. After all, if a man chopses to read up on in r sanity in his spare time, that doesn't mcke him a murderer. It doesn't even make him insane. Anyway, from your own story of the newspapers, you're ready tc believe that someone upstairs if implicated." "-> T do '" Cillv admitted. "Don't you think whoever threw away the papers knows a great deal about Amy's deatl}?" "Well, I'll admit it would seem so. Blucfields, Utah, is a smn'fl place. I'm willing to cheek m.ore thoroughly on the tenants . . ." "If it's not too late." "What do you mean?" "You told me yesterday, Sergeant, that we were all to stand in readiness for a summons to police headquarters. Was tha', order for mq alone, or was it given to every tenant?" ''Martin gave every tenant the same instructions." "Nevertheless, Mrs. Wheeler in 4-B left hurriedly this afternoon, with two large suitcases, I dpn't think she'll be back for a while." Dolan picked up a phone from the desk. To someone at the other end he ordered: "Have Mar'In check up on a Mrs. Wheelei in Apartment 4-B at the Bayview. See if there's any indication that she akipped." Replacing the phone, he turned to Cilly: "There's something peculiar in that," he said. "I particularly gave orders that no tenant was to leave the vicinity without special permission. . . . Well, we'll seo about Mrs. Wheeler. Now what else did you have to tell me, Miss Pierce?" "Nothing else, sergeant," Cilly said calmly. "But I do believe those three incidents have a tremendous bearing on the case." "Ptrhnps you're right." He sat still for a moment, strumming oq the table with the tips of his, fingers. His eyes were calculating as they stared uncompromisingly at Cilly. Under his steady gaze, she became restless. It was with," tremendous control that she retained her composure. "Nevertheless," said Sergeant Dolan finally, "Let's get back to this friend of yours—Kerrigan. How much haven't you told me about him, Miss Pierce?" Cilly straightened. "I've told you all there is to tell," she said with dignity. "Mr. Kerrigan and I arc very good friends. I am sure you will find his character and his habits entirely above reproach. You're wasting valuable time trying to cast suspicion on him." "Did Mr. Kerrigan ever tell you," Sergeant Dolan asked, with maddening deliberation, "that out in pluefields, Utah, his fa.ther is serving 10 year? in prison for theft?" (To Be Continued) Hnows his Unities pretty well. But ho IS nfrttld to; use .these values. Ifc is influenced by Die opinion of his friends, gpo^l or bad; he escapes from responsibility too often; he expect.-) approval of wrong nets. He is not ns brave. Ho is afraid, for some ren.son, of everything and everybody. He equivo- cnles and hedges. He won't stand on his record. Ho lucks will power and is the tool of friend and enemy. He cannot resist, because he eriives approval and gives way to pressure. This does not mean nil young people, but too many of them. They are anxious to please everybody, but not conscience. Morals Menu Honesty Moral courage is taught to young children by n policy of honesty. It is int'i-Hined by the boy or girl learning to come nnd tell the truth. It is made port of fibre- by the child having more faith in himself (nan the social influence of friends and the courage to sny "No," or "Yes." The fear-ridden child is usually devious in his thinking. The spoiled child expects perpetual forgiveness. Somewhere between the two lies the answer. Moral courage. It metnns to act without fear, but il also means to act with good sense. A Book a £ By Bruce Cation 19th Century France to I.lfe. Someone hns said that merely rubbing shoulders with cclebritir.s does not give a man the right to publish his reminiscences; he must be able to write them well. By such standards the Goncourts have every right to publish "The Goncourt Journals. 18.il-1870." translated by Lesvis Galantiere <Dou- bleclay-Doran: $3.501. These are day-by-day accounts by tw.o supersensitive young men who dedicated their lives to the study of reality, for whom "art and letters wore oxygen and life." whose sole passions were "the face of woman and the speech of man." They had plenty of opportunity t<i meet the freest spirits of their day at the fortnightly Magny dinners, a superb place to find Saint-Beuvc spouting spiteful anecdotes; Flaubert read- in gnloud in a "sonorous voice ttuit cradles you in sound like a bronze murmur;" the torpid Gautier, "sultan of the epithet." delivering himself of paradoxes and fantasies; Romm conceiving of God as an oyster; Taine eulogizing the English. Gauiter worked best in his publishers's shop. He could turn out pages only under pressure, the printer snatching them and running to the press. 'Flaubert, on the other hand took seven years to write a -100-page novel. For him form was more essential than idea. He wrote the ends of his sentences first—for cadence! The young Zola, "our admirer," came to see the Goncourts who. with Flaubert, were his "masters." bursting with plans for an eight-volume "history of the people." Fascinating are the close-ups of authors actually at work. You see. the Goncourts themselves, up all night at the Charity Hospital taking notes "from the quick form the gaping wound itself," though the hospital smells made them sick for days after- PLARPER FANNY t» -COPS, tJ3J »Y NEA Strict.

Cooper knows something of cartooning, having been a newspaper artist himself once, nnd wishes that cartoonists and illustrators and writers— especially fiction writers—would try to show Hollywood as it is. Millions of people, he feels sure, believe that directors still carry mega- ward.
