Can Ayoid War—at Bargain Rates T HE firsthand .biggest -step in tho process of getting; a country ready for a war is to soil it on the idea that if war comes it can't possibly stay out. We are getting a sizable do.se of that sort of sales talk right now. It is raining in on us from all sides, and the argu- •ftieht runs about like this: If u major war starts anywhere.! ihe world is so much a unit nowadays that its effects are felt) everywhere. Isolation is impossible; we got tangled up in the) last war and we shall inevitably get tangled up in the next. one. So we might as well make up our minds to it, and cooperate with other nations now in an effort to keep the war from starting. * -K * TOW it may be true that we could profitably co-operate for vthe sake of world peace—if any major power showed the Slightest willingness to make any sacrifices for peace, which * to,date none of them has done. Bufcit is about'time that someone got up in meeting and pointed'-out the utter absurdity of saying that we can't possibly stay out of the next war. Of course we can stay out of it.

NLRB Trouble-Shooter T HE National Labor Relations Board has been subject to serious criticism in recent months, but on occasion, it does some highly valuable work in averting strikes. Proof of this is embodied in the news from Akron, where mediation through the offices of an NLRB regional director helped to prevent an ugly strike in the plants of the Goodyear Tire and R ubber Co, Declining business had caused the company to lay off some 1600-workers. A brief sitdown strike followed; then the union called a mass meeting and a full-dress strike looked inevitable. The best the governor of the state could think of was to call out the national guard. But the NLRB man—James P. Miller was his name, by the way—got the two sides together and helped work out a settlement. It only took about 24 hours; it resulted in mutual acceptance of a compromise, and the strike didn't happen. the worst of it and it made her furious. Wha tshovild she do?

"This is going to make a good story, if we ever get back to tell it," 'Lissa ventured at last. Bob smiled through his bewilderment. "I'll say!" "We're going down all the time, Bob." "Up and down both. I can't estimate how much. But if wo .suddenly come onto the de\'il himself I won't be surprised." "I'll never be surprised at anything again! Know what I'm thinking, dear?" -No : L\^. What?" "About New York. And lite there. 1 used to be so bored with it. Nothing ever happened! That's wJ'.y I answered your advertisement." The brown men watched them carefully, spoke frequently to each other, showed them a fairly smooth path. Bob held Mary Melissa's arm all the while, to aid her. "Are you sorry, now, that you answered it?" He looked at her, She was even more lovely than he had imagined her to be, when they had kissed there in the darkness. At least he told her so; actually she was sadly tousled and unkempt, not to mention her weariness. "No," she declared, smiling. "I'll never be sorry." * * Of T HE walk wasn't very long. With that sudden surprise with which a train emerges from a tunnel, the strange party turned an angle in the cave and blinked at daylight. Near the exit they saw other things, too; mostly great baskets and jars, and some stacks of animal skins. The area .seemed to be a kind of storehouse. Bob's interest mounted rapidly. "We've surely stumbled onto another tribe of Indians," said he, '•and lucky for us, They're some tribe strange to me, but probably it few of them $peak English. We'll come around here again and investigate. I thought I knew all about this border country." Heralds evidently had hurried ahead with the news of the white couple, for as they emerged from the cave, blinking and squinting, they saw some dozens of men, women and children hastening toward them. They, too, were all brown. Bob and Mary Melissa instantly noted the complete absence of any evidence of "civilization," In dress, possessions, manners, even speech, these people were something from another century, from somewhere back in the middle ages as man reckons time. "Do any of you speak English?" Bob called, Evidently no one did. All stopped talking, and stared. He tried again. "We are hungry. Please give us food, and water." He pointed to his mouth, nnd to Mary Melissa's. They understood that. At least ono dignified elderly man did. He spoke a ftw words as if in com- | mand and two women hastened away. Shortly they were back vvilh oarthern bowls, both water and food. The food was a thick hot gruel of corn meal, will, some pieces of meal. The hungry pair ate again, gratefully, and strength grew in them. They could enjoy some sleep, but this was no time for it, they knew. f' * * OB BARRY— Dr. Robert Wilson Barry, Ph.D., now — was studying the situation intently. He bethought himself of another fundamental in human nature, and so took his shiny gold watch from his pocket. With some show of pomp, he held it out and walked to the man who had ordered their food. The brown man accepted it, evidently with high pleasure. Instantly the visitors were forgotten while the natives gathered around the shining gift. "They don't even know what a watch is, Bob! Look." Mary Melissa whispered, intensely interested. "Have they never even seen a watch before?" Suddenly one of them discovered the ticking, laughed and talked excitedly in announcing it to the others. Everyone had to listen B then, as if they were so many children. In time, though, they looked querulously at Bob; he stepped forward and took the watch again. The young scientist pointed at the sun, and at the watch. With extended arm, he swept in an arc from horizon to horizon, then with his finger he indicated the motion o£ the hour hand. He held up the watch and the yellow gold gleamed. As if by royal command, then, a murmur of awe swept through the brown audience. The leader spoke a short sentence or two, and the entire assembly lifted both hands —held them high as if in worship or salute. Silence reigned, while Bob Barry's jaw fell. He and 'Lissa stared in fresh surprise at this phenomenon. Nearly a hundred people had suddenly .saluted a watch. The attitude was undeniably one of respect, of reverence oven, "Lower the watch—lower it, Bob," whispered 'Lissa. He had unconsciously kept it held high, to reflect the sun TTE got the point. When he low- erecl the trinket, and with great show of deference gave it back to the brown leader, the people dropped their arms and began talking again. "Imagine that!" Bob murmured. But it makes sense, by George it does, 'Lissa! These people are stir« worshipers. Gcc 0 It's u common thing. Most of the aborigines in this country were." "Yes!" she replied. "And Bob —you told them that the watch was a sun, a little sun. See?" It seemed correct. If lit- had done so, it was a lucky move, he told her. What more likely to impress the simple folk, than to be messengers bearing a "little Sun?" They looked then to study the countryside. It was typical of the Mexican border country, as to mountains and cliffs, but imme-f diately before them lay a valley that was cultivated and green. It was not large, maybe a thousand acres. There was but one village. Houses were built of stone, ancj were clustered near the great cave which Bob and 'Lissa had just left. "This is in some kind of a box canyon/' Bob declared, studying the terrain. "Look at those sheer cliffs, all -around us." Their arrival hud completely upset the community. Evidently all the citizens—Bob counted 90-odd of them—came to sec the white couple. But not one could speak an English word, although Bob caught some phrases much like the speech of pueblo Indians. "I'm going to tackle that chief qgaijj," he told 'Lissa, "and see what I can do by drawing pictures and making signs." (To Be Continued) him to join him at his table.

NEXT: Wh»t Sovtb dictator is s»l4 to b»v tbe New W«n<j? Officers and privates aren't supposed to l>e friends—not in the German army, in, wartime, anyway. Nor is a conscientious British spy supposed to become emotionally attached to the very Germoii from whom he is trying to wheedle- out military .secrets. A friendi-hi ptluit leaped both of these gups is described in a remarkably moving little novel, "I Mel a Man," by Michael BUuikfort (Bobbs-MerTill: $2). Mr. Blankfort's story deals with a young American, a .student at Oxford •in 19.M, who joins the British inlelli- gence service and is fitted out with the uniform, name, information and identification tag which enable him to become a private in the German army before Yprcs. In that capacity he is supposed to find out when the anticipated "big push" to capture the channel porUs is lo begin. The spy gets over ihe border and lakes his place without trouble. Then he strikes up a friendship with a Prussian lieutenant—a strange, unexpected friendship which butls ancj flowers despite the army caste system because it gives two men a chance to escape, momentarily, from the horror and v, «ste of war, This friendship soon becomes the most important chapter in the spy's emoiional life. And yet it is this Prussian friend from whom he must extract the information he is seeking. He has to betray his friendship nnd his friend in order -to do the job for which he is risking his life.
