A Power To Rn ' Exercised Rtirelv The contempt case of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch is an example of the complications of the law that so confuse the layman. It will be rather difficult for the average man to understand just why the courts are .so careful lo avoid prejudice in the usual Jnw.snil—such as .selection of jurors with no knowledge of (he fuels—aiul yet in a contempt case judges are allowed lo hear cases instigated by themselves. We cannot attempt lo jiidgc l!u> merits of the ease against (he St. Louis Post-Dispatch and three of its .employes in .which Judge Thomas K. Kowe found the newspaper and two of its employes fruilty of contempt. But we do say (hat a system Hint provides for a judge to hear such a case, started at his own .suggestion, especially in the case of indirect contempt, or contempt out of court-does have its faults. The courts uiU]iiestionably should be protected. But judges are human bo- ings, just as other officials, such as governors or (lie president or legislators. None of these have (lie power (o line or jail their critics. That a judge docs have this power that no other oflicial has, the closest, approach to dictatorial power in this country, is all the more reason why such power should he exercised rarely and only for the most definite of reasons. Fortunately most judges are very cautious about such actions. After all, little support will be found in public opinion for a system whereby the judge is in effect the injured party, the prosecutor and the jury all combined in one. lead, (in, alloys, and machinery beyond her own need. This, Britain maintains, is going through Russia to Germany. The United States is »t peace with Russia, which is at pence with Germany, I'Yanee and Britain. You might think that American trade with such a neutral is our own business. Ditto our trade with the Scandinavian countries, also suddenly far above normal. .But il ficonis-iiol. War is desperation. If the British believe neutral countries are buying things from the United Slates, Ihen passing them on lo Germany, they will attempt lo slop it. Contraband controls in the Pacific may come wilh the spring. In short, when Britain thinks any neutral lias imported from the United States as much of any material as it needs, Britain will try to slop further imports. International law? Remember the Alt mark! Meanwhile, of course, the British lire importing from the United Slalcs, as little as (hoy can. Of planes and such desperalely-ncedi'd products, I hey will (ake all they can get. Hut of cotton, oil, urn! wheat, the minimum. They will buy instead from Kuropcan and South American countries with which they hope to improve relations. Australia has cut imports from the United Slates by about 10 per cent. In the midst of military war, Britain i.s moving heaven and earth to maintain export markets. All (his means heavy handicaps for American foreign trade. We shall need (wo Ihiiigs:, patience'and understanding in the face of what will certainly appear to be unjust discriminations; and .second, every effort to stimulate the domestic market to make up for impending losses in foreign trade. BLYTnEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS Fore warned— Forearmed . If it is true that In be forewarned is to be forearmed, the United States i.s lucky. Warning signs arc clearly up: Whether the blitzkrieg blitzes this spring or whether it merely lizzies, the neutrals are in,for it. For all of them, including the United States, things will be worse before they arc better. We may as well get used to the idea. American trade is going to gel a worse kicking around than it lias to dale. The British are face to -face wilh the fact that their blockade i.s a good deal less than water-tight. They are preparing measures to tighten it, though neutrals s(|iiirm. The British claim that Russia, for instance, has bought in American Pacific ports vast nuantilies of copper. Gownnent. /ly Cmif'csxion- In England they govern by tradition. In France, by emotion. In Germany, by intimidation. In the United Slates by investigation, hi Russia, by confession. Their must be something in Com- immisi doctrine and teaching, rather Ulan in the much-touted Russian soul, that brings the culprit caught on the wrong side of some political fence to grovel in abject confession of his error. Nicholas Dcw.enbcrg, the Red Army spy who was for years prominent in U. S. Communist ranks, wound up by abjectly renouncing (he ideals for which he had worked, and feverishly embracing those of democracy. A copy -of Do/enbcrg's disavowals might be sent to the Kremlin for filing alongside those of Bulsharin, Kykov, and the other purge victims.

Val Douglas Mniled sardonically. Here, al least, was one training camp he couldn't pitch her out of. * * t! ]}UFFY KELSO, spaltcrod nnd smelly from paint, fixed her with a vindictive eye at lunch.

The shoes were n naif size loo large bul iio wore an extra pair of sox lo take up some of the slack. Kelly was forced to wear makeshift garb.

Coolly, expertly hc beat out a rhythmic 'aioo of leather on board. Faslcr faster he worked until Ihe bag became an indistinct blur of motion mo flic noise became a flat, roll- its wave that sounded like a nulTled machine gun. Val found herself admiring 1bc ighl.
