Beware Of ''Final Remedies'' Politics is "the jivt of Ihu possible." That old definition is very iiciitc. It means simply that lie is successful in conducting human public nd'nirs who can balance of!" wlial he thinks ought to be (lone against whnl can be tlonu. Prohibition is nil example. I'Vtner President Hoover \vas perfectly riylit . in calling it "mi experiment noble in purpose." It was. J>nl in ;ip- plicalioi), it fell short of thai purpose. Even people sympathetic with that • purpose today realize that it must Ije achieved in a different manner. The roads of national history are strewn with wreckage of that kind, with broken legislative wands waved in vain. Final remedies are few nml far between in public affairs. That is why even those who are sympathetic with the objectives of Representative Dies will shy off a little when they Iciirn that he believes he has the "final remedy" for un-American activities in a single proposed law. As we understand it, this remedy .he envisions is a law to compel organizations with international affiliations to register with the Stale Department, and tile membershi plists. After two years of probing into un-American activities, Dies, it is reported, envisions such a bill as a "final remedy." Leaving aside the tuieslion of civil liberties and the possibility of using any such ,)aw as an instrument, (if-./per- iieciitioii of a minority, will,any such proposal work? Will it do any good at all? How can such a law be drawn without making a lot of potential trouble? For instance: How about the International Rotary and KiwanLs clubs? The International Typographical Union? The Federation Interallic des Anciuns Combattanls (International veterans' ovganr/.alion) ? The Red Cross? -The Knglish-Speak- ing Union? International Telephone and Telegraph? The Inlcnmlional League of Profession;)! BascUill Clubs? They all have international jiHilia- lions. Agitational political parties are not so easily eliminated. In Germany, with instant death staring them in the face, there are /'underground" parlies opposing Nazism. Can Dies be so innocent, as to think that in a registry provision of this kind he could have the "linal remedy" for anything? Let it be said for the thousandth time: There is only one "final remedy" for the growth of "foreign isms" in this country. That is to produce conditions such that no mass support will over be drawn to that fringe of inveterate agitators whose nature is sucli thai (hey will undoubtedly picket in Heaven.

They leaped upon him al once. When . hurl . . fight . say . . . ? Sam held up his hands'in an effort to slop the lorrcul of words llial were being fired al liim. "Boys, boys, give me ;i chmicu lo brcalhc," ho pleaded. "H's bad. The docs say Massini went and Iwisled one of them fancy HJJJI- mcnls, or something, and ho won't be able to fight fo': maybe two months." Sum mopped Ins bald head ugain. • "And with ihal advance Kate," lie moaned, "this is gotta happen lo inc." They were relentless. They had to have a story. One of them already had a death clutch on the telephone to call his paper. "1 can't cancel," Sam wailed. "I can't. I'll never get Cavalier here again." Suddenly he rushed lo Ihe phone. "Wail! I gol an idea. I'm gonna call Ihe champ. I think 1 gol an out." * * * gAM was lucky. In five minutes he was bilking lo the champ's manager in New York. When he was through he slumped back in his seal, completely spent. "Well, boys, hero it is und it's a swell.yarn, loo. We're bringin' in Corky Briggs from Chicago. He's available mid in shape. An' what's more, the champ says he'Jl give Cavalier a whack al him if hs heals Brings," "Jumping Jupiter!" one of UK reporters howled. "Corky Briggs isn't a middleweight any more. He's been lighting as a light-heavy for three months now and he's climbing fast! 1 Sam shrugged. "1 know il, but what can we do? I ain't got no alternative. So Cavalicr'U have lo He looked at his watch. "That mud scow of theirs gets into Prince Rupert, in a few hours. I'm gonnu wire Duffy now he should call me just as soon as he gets ashore. Now sciam, you guys, and let me have my headache in jieaee." They left him with a rush and Sam Golden reached for the remnants ol the bottle of whisky. * « • CJPARK.S sent Sam CoWen's wire down to Duffy Keko a couple of hours later. "Call me immediately you find (i telephone," he read out aloud. "That sounds like Sam Golden," Oufl'y said. "He must be up in the air like a kite, only higher." Duffy stared at the message again, suspiciously. "J tion't like ihc smell of this," he said. "Well, the nearest telephone is still three hours away. Meanwhile, keep "your blood below the boiling point," Val advised him. "You might want to get up a full head of steam later when you put your call through." "What's up, do you wonder?" I'op asked her when he got her alone. But Val had no belter idea than they did. It was Jate afternoon when the Northern Belle nosed slowly up the channel toward Prince Rupert. "We'll be picking up a pilot soon," Val observed. They wpre leaning against the rail up forward, letting the cool breeze fan back into their faces. "How long before we dock?" Eddie asked. "Couple of hours at least." She looked at him sideways. "Can't wail until you rid yourself of us, can you?" lie shrugged and stared at the curling wake of while which spewed away from the bow. "11 was your offer, i/member. What do you expect me to do under the circumstances? Duffy pvubably will weep out of sheer happiness." He had something there, she admitted to herself. \Vhat did she expect? Could there b= any earthly reason why he'd give up a quick trip back to San Francisco instead of a four-day voyage. Was that what she wanted? That was a troublesome thought, too. Shu stole a glance al the dark, rugged profile beside her. There was something slightly incongruous about it. That sensitive mouth, maybe. Eddie Cavalier didn't have the mouth you'd expect to find on a boxer. Strange; she should; be catching herself thinking of little tilings like that. . couple of them she had liked. There was Marshall Kendall. Handsome, impetuous Marshall Kendall who didn't have to work a day of his life if he didn't care to, but who was haphazardly trying to learn the brokerage business. Marshall and his house on Long Island and his yacht. There was Rodney Blair, a human dynamo if ever there was one. So wrapped up in his law business (hat he had no time to relax. She could like Rodney Blair a lot if only he would unbend a little more, llo had already asked her to marry him. Yel she knew she could never fall in love with either Marshall or Rodney. She couldn't ever marry a type, and that's what they were. If and when she did fall in love it would be with someone more refreshing. Someone wilU purpose and spirit. The tiuestion formed in her mind without her being conscious of it. Someone like Eddie Cavalier? No, she told herself, it could hardly be Eddie . . . could it 1 ; * * 4 JJUT when he spoke, suddenly, at her side she started visibly. "1 guess we're picking up the pilot here," lie observed, lie was right. In a little while they were in Clmltham Sound and nosed toward their dock. . Tbe gangway had hardly been moored fast when Dufl'y Kelso was scrambling down. Pop Grimes leaned on the rail and watched him. "He'll fall Hal on his face, sure," he said dryly. "I almost did when I stepped on land aficr my first sea trip." Bill Duffy made it without acci- rlenl. lie found a walprfronl restaurant with a pay station and nut his call through. Duffy Kelso ran all the way back to the ship. He was raging and sputtering so much he could hardly talk. First thing Pop did was remove the cigar from his mouth. "Maybe this'll make it easier," he said. "We been jobbed again!" Duffy screamed. He told them what had happened in San Francisco. "That's bad," muttered Pop. "J dunno whether we can give away pounds like that- especially to a lough one like Corky Briggs." "We ain't got no choice," Duffy said. "C'mon, we're gctlin' back to Frisco in a hurry." "Just a minute," Eddie -said quietly. "I've changed my mind. We're going back to Frisco Iho same way we came."
