We Can Quit Fueling Orient's War Engine T HE Japanese bombing of 20 Chinese cities represents in its purest form a new and frightening principle of warfare. 1*hese cities were not primarily military strongholds. The raids failed to damage any forts, airports or factories. 1|Tost'of the victims were humble folk, huddled in pitiful refu- -gee.camps'. By no stretch of the imagination could they be , considered obstacles to Japan's conquest. , v ;-\ The attack could give Japan no conceivable military ad- Vantage; its sole aim was to make war so horrible for non. Combatants that the nation's willingness to resist invasion ^v*ould be broken. And this casual acceptance by the Japanese general staff * Of the idea that wars can be won by applied frightf ulness leads us to a warning sounded by Pearl Buck in the current issue of Asia Magazine. * XXX M RS. BUCK remarks that the orient lacks all of those restraining notions about the value of human life which, through the centuries, we have built up in the west. Life is not sacred, in the Far East; people are crowded together too "* closely, getting a living is too much a grim struggle, death is too familiar a specter. The oriental simply does not look at ., death as we look at it. "* To this oriental, continues Mrs. Buck, the western world '. has 1 given the most terrible of weapons. It has armed, and ^ armed to the teeth, a people who have no moral or sentimental ." restraint whatever against using its weapons to the very limit J of their power. And, says Mrs. Buck: -.' ""To have the means of death in one's hands with no fear ! ', Of death in one's heart is the ultimate of terror, not only for - those who are actually engaged in such warfare, but for every" ,body-alive. This combination of orient and Occident, spread• ing worldwide, would be the end not only to all civilization, ', but to all physical human life." ' XXX ,* TT MAY make, then, very little difference—as far as our i I ,JL western world is concerned—whether Japan or China wins ~' the present war. In either case, the victor will, as Mrs. Buck says, be "flushed with a fresh and horrible confidence in the ruthleasness of his heart and the gun in his hand." For the world has at last brought itself to this pass; it has put the means of unlimited destruction in the hands of t . people who can have no.qualms whatever about using them. , It is a dark and "frightening picture.' It may be that it is already too late for us to "do anything about it"; but we might, at the very least, give some thought to the advisability of immediately stopping the sale of munitions to either side in the conflict. Just An Everyday Occurrence . T. M. Rev. U. 8. Pat. Off. By OK. MORKIS FISHBEIN ' Uttar, Joarnal of the American Medical Association, and of the Health Magazine. Early Diagnosis, Operation May Halt Effects of Other Dangerous Cancers This U the 16th of a series of articles In which Dr. Morris Fishbeln discusses cancers, their cause, and measures for prevention and treatment. (No. 337) More than 6,000 people in the United States die every year from cancers of the intestines and the rectum. About 5,000 people die every year of cancers of the kidney, the bladder and the prostrate. Another 5,000 die of sarcomas, the type of cancer that affects the bones and the muscles. In every one of these cases everything depends on finding out as soon as possible the nature of the growth. People with cancers of the intestines and the rectiun frequently find the material excreted from the body discolored by blood, either fresh or old. They suffer occasionally from gas formation and may be greatly troubled with action of the bowels. These cancers may spread in the body. Without attention, the person with a cancer of the intestines or the rectum will die quite promptly. But a surgical operation may prolong life for years. New methods of operation, particularly the use of electric surgery, have been developed. Exactly as cancers of the bowels may indicate their presence by the appearance of blood in the excretions, so also will cancers of the kidney, bladder and prostrate sometimes indicate that something may be wrong by a reddish appearance of the urine. Of course, there may be pain which is always a warning signal, but far too many people attempt to control pain by taking sedatives or narcotics instead of by 'finding out what causes the pain. A sharp pain in any portion of the body is a warning that something must be wrong. You cannot stop the growth of a cancer by taking something that will merely relieve the pain. Of greatest importance in relationship to all of these types of cancer is the use of the X-ray as a means of early diagnosis. Cancer cannot be diagnosed with certainty from the history of the patient alone. In making the diagnosis every modern method possible should be employed.

But I said, "Yes, your Don may be able to take it and leave it, but you enow very well that this sort of tripe will weigh heavily with a terrible num- )er of boys who are too anxious to gloat. When they see in print the very things they are secretly dwelling on anyway, they sense a permission to pursue their own way. No wonder sex crimes against children are growing and we are afraid to trust them out of our sight." Why don't cities, who go on vice raids, demand that these lewd publications be put io an end once and for all? Insidious Evil I am riot talking about the frank magazine that holds up crime as a target, and recites cases to show that it does not pay, but the sly insidious publication that gets its poison in often under the most disarming of titles and camouflaged by innocent enough context to fool the reader until he striges the vicious passages. It is all very well to say, "Watch your children's reading," but with such literature everywhere available, parents are helpless. But not quite. And it is not the children alone who feed on such truck. Old men, middle aged men, and the general public are being .excited to crime. Yes, something should be done.

CHAPTER XIX J^ETURNING to her apartment after breakfast Wednesday moining, Cilly met Detective Martin in the hall. "Good morning, Miss Pierce," he greeted. "I've just b?en through the house. Dolan wants everyone down at po"*je headquarters this morning at 10:30." "Very well. I'll be there," Cilly Assured him. She decide:! that she would be there at 10 o'clock to inform the sergeant of her latest discovery. Hi* bad ruled Mr. Hunter out as a possibility because of the man's physical incapacity. This morning, however, Hunter loomed in Cilly's mind as a vory important possibility. Why would a man deliberately tie himself to a wheel-chair when he was well able to walk? Later, however, when a burly policeman had ushered her into a private room at police headquar- j ters, she discovered she would I hase no opportunity to see the j sergeant alone. Several of the Bayview tenants had arrived •» Tore her. They sat in a semicircle around a plain flat top de"k, nervously expectant. She i/cognized the Downeys: so obviously mother and daughter. Mr. Hunter, looking feeble and frail in his wheelchair, was there with his wife. Promptly at 10:30, Sergeant Doian entered the room, followed by Martin. Dolan seated himself at the desk, his back to the double windows. Martin stood behind him, leaning against a windowsill. The tenants sat facing the windows, where the light shone on their faces clearly and relentlessly. If they lied, Cilly thought, Dolan would be able to read it in their features. '•Everybody here, Martin?" Dolan asked. Martin checked with a list in his hand. ''Didn't get in touch with the Wheeler woman yet," he reported. "The three other tenants are still out of town — but I don't see the Corbctts." The Corbetts. Cilly looked up in surprise. But, of course, they would be summoned. Mrs. Corbett's mother was the only person who actually saw the murder committed. Her testimony would be very important. Even as Martin spoke, the door opened and they entered. Mr. Corbett, Cilly noticed, had survived his drinking very well. He was immaculate in a light gray tropical worsted, and he carried himself with an air of assurance. Mrs. Corbett, the same m^*k and humble woman Cilly had first met, followed her husband hesitantly into the room. f$\e wore a nondescript blue voile dress, and it hung limply on her thin frame. Her face was pale and drawn. Her mother, in spite of asthma, held her head high and entered the room with a firm step. * « * AS soon as they were seated, Sergeant "tolan addressed the group: "You all know," he began, in a calm, rather friendly voice, "a young woman was killed in a fall from (ha roof of the Bayview Apartments last Sunday night—or, to be more exact, at 12:20 eerly Monday morning. We have a witness present who can testify that the girl did not fall, but "/as deliberately thrown from the roof. This is a cold-blooded murder, ladies and gentlemen, which we are investigating, and I need not impress upon you the importance of absolute truth and accuracy in answering my questions. Mrs. Shaw, will you please tell us again, in your own words, just exactly what you saw occur on the roof of the Bayview?" Mrs. Corbetfs mother got to her feet. AH eyes were turned upon her. Dramatically, the squared her shot-Wers and took a deep breath before she spoke. "As I told you before, sergeant," she said in clear, crisp tones, "I was seated at the window of my bedroom in the St. Ana Apartments. T had not been feeling well, and I wanted to get the air. It was very dark out—there were neither stars nor a moon—and ordinarily I could not see the roof opposite except when an occasional beam from one of the ships in the bay would pass over it. Suddenly I heard this frightful scream, and at that very instant a beam passed slowly over the roof opposite. I saw a man pick this girl up in his arms and deliberately fling her over the side of the house. That is all. I must have fainted. My daughter prepared an opiate for me, and I did not awaken until morning." "Thank you, Mrs. Shaw. May I ask if the light was sufficiently strong for you to recognize this man in any way?" "It was not." Mrs. Shaw* resumed her seat. Serge-ant Dolan scanned the faces before him. "Now I am going to ask each of you to remember very cnrefully what happened Sunday night. We'll start with you, Mr. Hunter. You live on tho top floor, directly under the root where the murder was committed Did you hear any voices on the roof, any sign of quarreling?" "No, sergeant," Hunter replied. He spoke in a frail voice, as if to match the infirmity o£ his limbs, "I must have been asleep. It was the scream which woke me up. My wife ran to the. window. . . ." "Did you get up?" The man shook his head sorrowfully. "I couldn't do that, you sec." He made a futilo gesture toward his legs. "I haven't walked in 20 years." * * * pILLY stood up, her eyes afire. ^-* "Sergeant Dolan," she cried, "will you ask Mr. Hunter how it happens, therefore, thnt last night from across the street. I saw him walking about his bedroom in his pajamas?" The man gasped; he turned to stare at Cilly, and in his eyes there blazed the malevolent i'eur of a trapped animal. "Is that true, Hunter?" Dolari snapped. "The girl's crazy," he choked through dry lips. "She's crazy or —drunk. I can't walk ... I have doctors' statements to prove it." "What time was this, Miss Pierce?" Dolan inquired. "Eleven o'clock, sergeant. There is no mistake about it. I saw him. . . ." "Say! Wait a minute!" Cilly spun around to face the man who suddenly interrupted her. It w#3 Mr. Corbelt. There was a malicious glint in his eyes. "In another minute, sergeant, the young lady will be telling you about pink elephants," he offered with tolerant amusement. "At 11 o'clock last night she was in my apartment, drinking rye highballs. And, believe me, .she v/as in condition to see a great many things walking." "That's an outrageous lie, Mr. Corbett, ancl you know it!" Cilly turned to the sergeant, shaking with fury. But in his eyes, she saw doubt and disappointment. It was part of his job to believe the worst—and he believed Corbetfs story. She could see it. From now on, the light would be doubly hard. (To lie Continued) (Random House: $2.50). The talc b{ four careers, nnd how they were molded by the discovery of radium, found out the book. One of the careers was that of tho Polish woman, who later married Pierre CtiHc, physics professor nt (he Sor- bonite, nnd devoted her life to the aludy of the rare clement she had chanced upon. Another was thnt of a Belgian, Picrrr Cynuc, whose overwhelming ambition to be the world's copper king changed overnight when he learned that radium-bearing ore had teen discovered on the African holdings of his firm. When a physician relieved the mind of an English boy, George Purvis, from fear of infection, tho boy determined to become a great doctor. How radium helped him build a great career (hut drugs undermined is another of the plots threaded into the novel. Ferhiips tht most colorful character is n Mormon patriarch, Jeroboam Cormick, whose decades of fruitless prospecting finally were crowned with success with the discovery of radium- bearing ores on his properties. How radium twined together the lives of all these people, and punished greed with tragedy, makes an entcr- -taining, informative story, especially absorbing for those who have a yen for the scientific.—G.

So interesting are they to fans that studio publicity departments invariably launch rumors of scorching romances between the principals (if unmarried) of each picture. Sometimes studio executives request certain players to he seen together in public. Occasionally these synthetic romances become real. More often they make several people unhappy. Divorced couples also draw customers. Public curiosity and imagination were whetted by the Carole Lombard melting into the arms of William Powell in "My Man Godfrey." While "The Moon's Our Home" was in production, millions of sentimentalists thrilled to rumors that Henry Fonda's love-making to Margaret Sullavan likely would result in n reconciliation. She settled that, later, by marrying Leland Hayward. Private I/.vcs Any day now you'll be seeing Joan Crawford and Franchot Tone in "The Bride Wore Red." Will the fans like it, or will they say, "Aw, they're married anyway, so what's the kick in that?"

Over nt Paramount Jool McCrcn and Frances Dec are having u tough time playing at love in "Wells Forgo." It's embarrassing. Says McCrea, "This isn't acting, it's like part of your private life." As soon as Anne Shirley and John Payne are married, RKO plans to put them together in a picture. There has been talk of the teaming of Joan Blondell and Dick Powell. Jeanette MncDonuld and Gene Raymond have declared that they will remain apart on the screen. Mary Pickford and Buddy Rogers could write their own contract, although Mi&s Pickford may recall that her appearance with Douglas Fairbanks in "The Taming of the Shrew" was a financial tragedy. Piny for Uiuglis Of course, for pure curiosity-appeal, there never could be anything like a teaming of Mae West and Frank Wallace. That would be the Prattle of the Century—a $2,000,000 gate. There's no telling, at this writing, what Miss West's admitted marriage to Wallace, in 1911, has done to her popularity. For a good many months, she made vehement denials.
