More Peace "Lunacy" Is Needed by World ' it was inevitable that the man who interrupts 1 the Armistice Day ceremonies in London should be locket up as a lunatic. Probably he really was a lunatic. But then was nothing particularly insane about what lie had to say. The king and all the big-wijys \vere there, drawn up in -orderly files about the World War Cenotaph. The heart- moving period of silence had begun, and all over Britain men and women were sU-uidin-jr in quiet remembrance of the men who had: been killed. Then, suddenly and dramatically, a bare-headed man in a raincoat rushed forward, jostled his way through the lines of soldiers and sailors, reached a spot, within a yard of Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, and cried in a loud voice: "Stop all this hypocrisy! You're deliberately preparing for a new war. W ELL, of course, they gave the man the bum's rush. Away he went in the hands of the coppers. When the period of silence ended", the crowd began to yell, "Kill him!" But he was taken away unharmed; and later, in the House of Parliament, Home Secretary Sir Samuel Hoare announced that the disturber "was obviously suffering from a delusion" and would be kept under observation. So that ended that. Probably the man really was crazy; for hardly any of our eminently sane leaders seem to be lil't- "injftheir voices these days in protest against the increasing; •SU-kJ&MSfcr'of war. Yet it is hard to avoid the feeling- that we could stand a good deal more of this particular kind of lunacy. If you are old enough to remember 1918, you will recall how devoutly and wholeheartedly the world yearned for an enduring peace when the World War ended. Millions upon millions of them had been killed, civilization had been shoved to the very edge of the abyss, and enough ordinary, heart-breaking human suffering to make the angels weep for a century > had .been inflicted on the race. -One would think that people who had any sense at all ..would have resolved that whatever happened, there weren't going to go through that again. Once and for all, that experience should have been enough to show that no action nteii't'can take is as completely insane as the action which plunges ihajii into a world war. * * * S O; WHAT happened ? So nearly a score of years passed, and Armistice Day came around again, and people stood in silence to honor their dead and renew the vow that it should not happen again; and all the while the great fleets were being built up, and the air squadrons were being enlarged, and the armies were drilling, and the new war was visibly drawing- closer. Is it any wonder that one man was driven to interrupt the ceremony with a desperate cry of protest? It did no good, of course. He was "suffering from a delusion." But he must have made at least a few people wonder uneasily just who was being insane. Suicide Gamble I T IS hard to understand the particular kind of mental aberration that led those two western youths to try the old Rus" sian-suicide stunt of the one-shell-and-the-revolver. In this stunt, you put one shell in the gun, twirl the cylinder, put the muzzle to your head, and fire. There is one chance in six that you will kill yourself: five chances that the firing pin will hit nothing and that you will live. Two young men, one in California and the other in Utah, tried this recently. Both of them lost their lives. Neither one wanted to die. From all accounts, they were just out to show their friends that they had courage. bu OREN ARNOLD, Capyright 193?, NEA S«.Vie«, I C A S1T Of CH.VHAC'rRRS tt 0 B to tt >P BAltKY—fc«b, «*- fair to expect Dnrrj'n imrliier.

No actual digging was attempted the first day, but when the party descended toward nightfall, everyone was fatigued.

Hades Jones had been accepted as a social equal, surely. And the West is famous for Its democracy, She knew. Holliman mistook her pause for shyness, and thought she was pleased at the compliment.

They had a definite pattern for stone hammers, tomahawks and the like. The grooves in this one, which held the rawhide, were different. The shape was unique. And the rawhide was strangely fresh!' 7 He shook his head at the mystery. When supper was over that night, talk about the castle was resumed. * * * TVOBODY had any suggestions. They had threshed it out before, without results. When 9:30 came the entire party went to bed. At breakfast, Bob had already been up two hours, making entries in his notebooks, and outlining work for the days to come. "First thing, Uncle Hades," he addressed the others, "You'd better take the pack mules to the spring and bring back all the water you can. Take it easy. It's a 12-mile jaunt, you know. "Holliman,. I.*tbink you'd bettor cut some more poles and construct wider and more permanent bunks such, you know." "Last night, in the dark, I take flashlight and go back to castle. I know many Indian signs.

Many of our signs arc very very old. T look for sign of one long square in another long square. It means door. Maybe you know." "Yes! Yes, the entrance sigh! And—?" "I find it. On thce castle rocks. I am sure. I think it show thee secret entrance to thee castle." Bob stood up, in his excitement. "L-look here, Honiflr Bee," he jabbed a finger at her, beaming, "Can you show it to me? Right away?" He gripped her arm, in quick thanks, as he passed her. Honey Bee smiled, and in that moment she was truly beautiful. But— "I'll get 'Lissa," Bob called. "We'll go right up with you." Slowly the Indian girl's expression changed. It was almost supernatural, for the scowl that grew, In place of the smile, was deep with pain, tainted with spiritual venom.
