Eyes Noith We must try to stop looking at Hie world \vith the eyes of yeslerdny, ami try to sec it with the eyes of tomorrow. We think of the Atlantic its t!i« braid'expanse between New York sind Cherbourg. We must, begin to think of it iis the Grail Circle airplane crossing from Halifax across Green land and Iceland to northern Knrojie. We think of the Pacific as Uio vast reach from San Francisco to Hawaii to Manila to Hong Kong. We must begin to think of it as the hop-skip-ancl- jumi) by air from (lie Asiatic mainland to Alaska. Thus the United States cannot fail to be interested in what happens to Greenland and Iceland. Greenland, largest island in Die world, is populated by only <JOO Danes and 16,000 natives. The United States used to have claims on the northern part of it as a result of Peary's explorations, hut relimiiiished them when the Virgin Islands were bought from Denmark. Most of Greenland lies farther west than Iceland, most ancient of democracies, has 117,000 people, and is definitely eastern hemisphere. If might claim the United States by right of discovery, for it was from here that Leil' Ericcson set sail for Vinlnntl in the year 1000. Both islands have been happy in their obscurity, utterly without defense. But islands that happen to be of military value can no longer be obscure. The world has made it so. And .since it has been made plain that any defenseless neutral country is liable to seizure by a .stronger country which needs it for military purposes, the United States is bound to take an interest in the northern islands. More ami more tire taboo of north is being broken. Access to continents is not only from east west, but from the north, across pole. If has been rumored, for instance, tjiat the German soldiers who seized Narvik came from Murmansk. Both are farther north than Iceland. Alj North America turns eyes north. Neither Canada nor the United Stales can be indifferent to the fate of Greenland and Iceland. the the and the 25 Yearsi Ago pn April 7, 1015, just 25 years ago, this news item appeared: "Norse aviators discover that several German submarines are maintaining a base at Bergen Bay."

Paying liic Pension Bill Is No Trouble (or Nazis Not only have the Nazis "rejected « I'lir- ronching old age pension plnn, but they have the answer, or nt Itakl an answer, to the <i«eb- lion of- where Ihe money Is coming from. It's not copyrighted, but it could not be used by the United .Slnlcs.

As originally conceived (His O'eriiinn plan ivsemulcd our own federal old a^c insurance system In that participating workers would have been required to contribute to its cost, by paying premiums, JUKI as our insured workers pay a percentage of their weekly or monthly earnings. Another point of similarity seems lo have been tluil the premium payments were counted on to yield "n considerable volume of quick revenue," The American pay roll taxes are being used tis "quick" or current revenue by the Treasury, which deposits nn equivalent amount of its own bonds in the insurance rc- scvvc fund. I3ut the German pension plan has been siieh'- eil tor Ilic reason, it is believed, that the mechanism necc'ssory to opemtc It was found to be too comiillcatcd in view of 'Ilie Reich's wartime (iiiandns problems. To make up Hie revenue looked for from the workers' premium payments, there will be further increases in war income and turnover taxes. The peusions will have to wait for "the plutocracies" to lie smashed and their rlclies shared among (lie workers of a victorious Germany. But Germans should know what it means to wait for Na/l promises to be fulfilled. Many of them have for years been paying installments against the delivery at some Indefinite time in- the future of the "people's cars" Hitler proposed to build by ihc millions.

"Looks liko (lie storm's over," lie observed, nodding toward the porthole. "Yeah! I'm sure glad," said Pop. "And I'm also plenty gtad you iiidn'1 fake cold or nnylhing. Can't have you going into tliat ring next week on crutches." "Where's Duffy?" Eddie asked, looking avound. They were alone in Ihe crew's quarters. "H's almost noon.

She's still iu bed, lliouuh . . . an' she sent word she'd like to sec yon just as soon's you got up and had somelhin' to eat." t t t J^DDIE got into his clothes and went straight to her cabin. She lay propped up against a couple ot pillows when lie entered. They loolied at each olhcr. His look was ,1 little challenging, and perhaps a bit reproachful. She motioned to a chair. "Please sit down," she said in a low voice. "I'll stand." "No," she said firmly. "Sit down. I can tnlit to you better Hint w;iy." "About what?" He sat down, facing her. "About what a dunce I was for slapping you last night." "Oh . . . thai?" "It's awfully inadequate lo tell you I'm sorry . . . ;md it's iust as inadequate !o tliank you for saving my life." She extended her hand. "But won't you let me try?" He took her hand in his. It was the first time he hod ever touchet her in more than a casual, accidental fashion. He wondered whj lie got Ihe sudden electric shod- hat surged through him. "Sure," he said easily. "I think know liow you feel. You don't wve to cat crow." She shook her head. "I'm not. . . I don't think you'd want me o. But Eddie . . . why did you do it? Last night, I mean. Sieve tansen says ho doesn't know how anyone could live in thai sea." "\Vc were lucky. 'Die ship had Lilinosl stopped and we didn't drift :«i : ." "You haven't answered my question." He shrugged. "I don't know.

"There's nothing lo prevent you 'ram jumping ship ouco we get lo Prince Rupert. Unless we keep you a virlual prisoner below decks," she added. "What do you mean?" "Just what I said. Once you and Duffy and Pop gel ashore"we v.'on't he able lo keep ah eye on you every second. What's to prevent yon from walking out on us? You could grab a train, or even a plane back lo Frisco." "You mean you're giving us our release if we want il?" She nodded again. "Why not? You've earned it, haven't you? Besides, we probably tan pick up isll the men we want in Prince Rupert. We'll be in port for couple of days, you know. Won't be any trouble at all." Must like Lincoln freeing the slaves," he murmured. "That'll be a big sacrifice on your part, you know. What about the stories you're sending back to your office? You wouldn't want to give up a good thing like that, would you?" "Must you rub it in? Why don'l you decide on my offer as il stands?" "Might not Captain Hanson have something lo say about this? "Steve llansen will do anything I say." "That was the trouble in the first place," he reminded her, gelling to his feet. "*)ow iE you don' mind, I'll go get myself., some breakfast." - - - Slic was surprised. "Why, I told i hem to be sure you ale first, bc- ore coming here." I didn't," he said. "See you aler." It wasn't unlil well along in Ihc afternoon that Steve Hanson , r ould permit Val to get up. When he finally came on deck she found tattoo on the still a heavy Mdie beating n bag. There \vas Jiound swell (hat made any sparing impossible. Dufl'y Kelso bit down on his 'igar and jerked his head toward ier. "Here comes (he clghtlj plague," lie said lo Pop. "Sam olden should only know how "lose he come lo promolin' a fu- icral at sea instead of a fight." She looked at her watch. "Sam Golden will be reading the entire itory in about an hour, I'd say.

Sam Golden, a fat little fellow with a pair of sad brown eyes, laced back and forth an<5 mopped • perspiring bald spol. Sam had broken out two bollle:; ot his besl liquor but Ihe half dozen sports writers who were cluttering up his oBice at the mo- nenl didn't let up on him for n ninulc. Sam slopped his pacing. "I ask you—could I hetp il, boys? Is it my fault lhat crazy Duffy Kelso Jeeidcs he wants to become ;\. sailor all of a sudden? Is it my 'ault ihis dame falls overboard? Here, Kenny, have another drink." Ken Bradley, boxing writer for Ihe Express, growled in his grog and held his glass out to be replenished. "Scooped within an inch ot our lives.
