Blind War Hatreds Shame All Peoples A LAST, far-away echo of the madness of World war day came across the sea the other day in the shape of a cable gram announcing that Ernst Lissauer had died in Vienna. . Ernst Lissauer, in case you have forgotten, is the ma who wrote the famous "Hynm of Hate" which Germans use between 1914 and 1918 as a vehicle for their dislike of Eng land and the Eng-lish. His life is over now, and he surely leaves as odd a clain :othe remembrance of history as any man could ask for. For Lissauer was sorry he ever wrote the "Hymn." Eve . before the war had ended, he had switched away from . feeling of desperate hatred to a hope that the enemies migh % .become reconciled. After the war he devoted himself to tin cause of pacifism. When Hitler came to power Lissauer mov ed to Vienna so that he could go on writing his anti-war play. Without interference. * * * I N 1914, Lissauer was a plump, good-natured man with a rising reputation as a poet. He had never been in England had never seen an Englishman, knew nothing about the coun try; but one day. a month or so after the war broke out. he was •- sitting with a group of journalists in a Hamburg cafe when 'news came that England had held up an American ship which , was bringing hospital supplies to Germany. This touched some spring in the poet's breast. His indig- . nation overflowed, he grabbed pencil and paper, and in a short time the 'Hymn of Hate" was written. One of the journalists took it with him; presently it got published, and before long • it'had swept all of Germany. _ The kaiser decorated Lissauer with the Order of the Red Eagle, fourth class. Newspapers in all the Central Powers -reprinted the poem. It appeared in America. The English .themselves reprinted it, made fun of it, and used it to bolster their own warborn hatred of the Germans. All in all, it was t a perfect symbol of the madness of the universal war spirit " V 1 --' Ll ' 8 ^ uer ' meanwhile, was having his second thoughts. in less than a year he was joining in a campaign against including the poem in books for children. By 1918 he was ac- ticely working for a reconciliation with England. After the ...war ended he worked heart and soul for pacifism But he never could catch up with himself; as long as his name is remembered, it will be remembered as the name of a man who burst out with a: terrible cry of hatred * * * ; -TS IT stretching things too much to suggest that what hap- 1 pened to Lissauer was only what happened to all of us in . lesses degree,,durin°; the war's madness? Like him we gave way to hatred; hating the frightful things that happen in wartime, we hated certain peoples, and not war itself. Afterward, like Lissauer, we realized that our hatred *-4. ^u mad( f ?"tastic—and we got over it and felt ashamed of at. The tragedy was that we came to our senses too late. Layoffs in C I. O. THE layoffs that have been reducing employment lately are i tragic. Yet there could be no greater fnlly than to assume as gome of our radical spokesmen are doing, that these lay offs are due to the personal enmity, bad faith or general cuss • edness of the emplovers who are ordering them As an illustration, consider the fact that the Committc Jw Industrial Organization itself recently has laid off som 200 of its oreranizers because of the business recession. f This militant left-wing labor organization is simply obey inor thejron law that the business men are obeying: when the money ian t corning in, you retrench. ' ., T P ne ' s P oJ ''t''cal or economic outlook has nothing to do with 11' / y ou - n °P e to sta -V in business, you follow that rule, Even the L. 1. 0.. which can denounce layoffs with the best of thorn has to follow suit. a Day By Bruce Carton Accuses (he British of 'Wrecking Imlln At a time when the imperialistic sins if such nations as Japan and Italy are getting so much attention, it is a salutary thing to come across such n book us "The White Sahibs of Jndin," by Reginald Reynolds (John Duy: $3.50). In this Ixiok Mr. Reynolds presents the whole picture of British imperialism in its finest flower, and the picture is startling and unpleasant. Fos as Mr. Reynolds sees it, the British have been guilty of one of the most cruel and ox- acting tyruimios in modern history in their dealings with India; and hi- offers a wealth of documentation to show that he knows what he is talking about. When the British reached Indin, lie declares, India enjoyed a high or civilization than England. Its agriculture was more advanced, its educational sy.'tem was better—and, incidentally, reached a fur larger proportion of the population- its craftsmen were more skilled, ils villagers had more solf- rule. and the legal system was .simpler I and more just. All of these tilings, lie declares, Britain wrecked. Native imliisttries were killed to make wny for British exports—which is (lie oilier side of the great free trade era in British economy. Local government and educational systems were destroyed—so that today, when British apologists say that widespread illiteracy makes India unfit for ."••flf-guvc-rnmc-nt, they are blaming an evil for which England is responsible. The whole Indian economy, he con- timie.s, was ruined. "Hie terrible famines that have periodically devastated the land he blames on England: they were unknown before the English arrived. All in all .it Is a sorry record that Mr Reynolds presents. It is not a bad thing to be familiar with, in this day when Britons are crying out to heaven against the imperialistic designs of other nations.

The other clay, two sisters could not gree on what movie to attend. Jane /as all set on a musical film. Dorothy aid she hated singing shows. Yet they could not go alone, as both theaters were at some distance. It was a rule that they had to stick together on th'eir forays into the city. "What shall we do, mother?" asked Jane. "You'd better settle it for "us. Each of us thinks she is right. We'll do whatever you say, though."

I have provided the quarters and carfare, your nice coats and new hats. The rest should be your affair." Jane and Dorothy sat down in silence.

Physical and Mental Relaxation Advised in Case of Overstrain This Is the fifth and concluding article of a series in which Dr. FlsJlbein discusses cause, effect and treatment of nervous breakdown. (No. 408) Complete relaxation answers th problem ftl overstrain. Coupled wit the drive of modern industry and liv ing are the financial worries of e nomic imbalance. There are all sort of panaceas for overstrain. Usuall. the man who worries is told to forge it. The advice does not help becausi worry creates a vicious circle. Yoi worry first about what is going to hap pen and then you worry about how ti stop worrying. The problem of worry aoes not al ways affect the aged or the middle aged. In &ae college for girls, 185 con sidled the psychologic adviser in ; single year. forty-tour girls wffe found to t* suffering with severe nervous disturb- ancca; 13 went quite ill with real dt ftreseiorts; four had serious sey problems; lour had definite suicidal tendencies. Some had exceedingly mi difficulties that might have led to serious troubles if they had not been taken in time. The first step tor those who have nervious disturbances, worries or mis- appreheniiorui, is to consult -4 medical adviser to make certain that there is no physical basis for the disorder. A physician who has specialized in oprb- leros of the mi/jd may he needed to work out the mental background of a situation when no physical cause can be found. In either event it is highly desirable In work out a good rnenta hygiene; program. Make tte body as healthy as possible by pro|*r diet, sleep, exercise sunshine and outdoor uir, and enough relaxation and rest during the day. Few people really know how to relax both physically and menially There is one system i;i which the patient relaxes each muscle of the body -systematically, one at a ti/ne, until ht is actually completely relaxed physically. There are also systern.s for mental relaxation—from counting sheep ttj counting knots on a string while repeating a formula. Some people practice a formula. Some people practice rhythmical breathing. Most people incline to develop patterns for fulling sleep. The doctor aids in such ca.-,(.-.» by the power of suggestion and by unparli/ig confidence. There is not U.-A- to .saying "Don't" lo anyone about his worries f-hysjcia/i.-i trained in the atudy of the mind will determine the mental problem that concerns the patient and by aidmg the patient to understand his problem, frequently will dis^ossesa the mind of its worry. £vc-ryone should be cautioned, however, about overwork and speed Some agople have a far greater capacity for effort and much more drive than do others, but the speed of modern life under many conditions ii> too much for ven the strongest.

"Will you please see what that Is, Miss Benton?" she directed. Linda took down the receiver and said, "Yes. This is Mrs. Trent's secretary speaking." "Oh," said a man's voice at the other end of. the line. "Well, this is the United Press. V,V should like Mrs. Trent to affirm or deny a story we have here. Shall I read it to you?" "Read it," said Linda ; "and I Will consult Mrs. Trent." " 'Miss IV/cigda Shirley,'" the voice read, " 'thrice m :j r r i e d, thrice divorced darling at th<8 silver screen, let it be known to- Night, friends say, that she was to Jiave been married next month to Captain Barrymore Trent of the United States Naval Air F^'-ce. Captain Trent has definitely been given up as lost since his wrecked plane was found floating in the Caribbean Sea after his recent clash to the rescue of the ill-fateci Aurelius expedition. ''The names of the glamorous Miss Shirley and the daring young flyer were often bracketed when Captain Trent was stationed in California six months ago. Miss Shirley, friends say, is at present jn a sanitarium, prostrated at the pews of Captain Trent's disappearance. 1 . . . Now what we want to know is: is this the truth or press-agent ballyhoo?" Linda stood for so long a time silent that old Miranda said tartly, "Well? Well, what is it?" "I think," said Linda from the blanket of fog that was closing in about her, "that you had better speak to Mrs. Trent." She handed the instrument to old Miranda. * * * rTrlE old i a(ly listened, her lips •*• drawing to a dangerous line. When the sputtering over the receiver stopped, she spoke, her clear, cool voice very contemptuous, very sure. "You may say," she directed, "that this story is a brazen, im-1 puclent lie. That is all. Good- eight." The day he went away, Linda reflected now, Barry had said in those last crowded moments, "If —of course I'll be back soon, darling; but—well, someone might drop a brick on me, you know— you must promise mo to tell grandmother as soon as—as you're sure. She's really fond of you, Titania. Promise me you'll tell her." "Barry, don't!" Linda had cried. "If anything happened to you, nothing else would matter." But in the end Linda had promised. "Mrs. Trent," Linda began impulsively — but at that moment the doorbell rang. ( * * » JT was a messenger with a letter for Mrs. Trent. She opened it and read it, the fingers of one hand tightening slowly about the arm of her chair. It seemed to be very brief. She read it again and yet again. Then she rose, and glancing brje/ly at Linda, went slowly out of the room and upstairs-. All through breakfast next morning old Miranda was strangely silent. From time to time she glanced at Linda as if she were about to speak, but uncertain how to phrase something she had to say—as if that something might be unpleasant. "Perhaps," Linda thought, "she's getting ready to tel} me she doesn't want me here any more. . , . How um I to tell her about— Barry and me, if she feels like that? But I promised Barry." So she vacillated all day, debat* ing, dreading. She had almost summoned her strength for the ordeal that evening after dinner when old Miranda said, "Judge Baldwin's death has been a shock to me—why I do not know; for he has been ill for years. He was one of my oldest friends." "Judge Baldwin?" echoed Linda blankly. "I — I hadn't—" "He died this afternoon. Mies Chattanr? phoned me." It was at this moment that Jefferson appeared to announce Mrs. Rita BJanchard. Before old Miranda could speak, Rita was on the threshold behind him. For a moment she poised there, one hand resting against the door frame, the other against her throat, as if to control an over-, whelming emotion. Then she cried, "Oh, poor dear Mrs. Trent!" With a swift rush she crossed the room, and sinking to the low j stool by the older woman's chair, she caught one of her hands jn i both of her own and pressed it against her cheek. "I had to come," she burst out when old Miranda did not speak, but continued to sit, motionless, looking at her fixedly. "I thought perhaps — can't we comfort each other? I — I can hardly realize yet that we have lost him. .. . . Oh, but you — you don't know yet, do you? . . . You must not blame Barry. He wanted to tell you before he went. ... He begged me to marry him last night. If I could have guessed — " old Miranda moved and broke her silence. "My dear Rita," she said, a mirthless amusement in her old eyes, "you must forgive me if I seem unresponsive. But there seems to be on epidemic of this sort of thing. Is it possible tb«/t you have not read the morning news? If not, this will doubtless interest you." Reaching Ixiiind her, she picked up the morning paper tmd spread it before Mrs. Blanchard's startled eyes. Old Mirandn had been right, The paper had made a noble display of Magda Shirley's story, Headlines blazoned: Magda, Shirley Says Engaged to Wed Lost Navy Flyer and just opposite: Grandmother of Captain Trent Denies Pilot Planned to Marry Screen Siron There were- pictures of Barry and Mugda — that of Barry caught as he stood by his plane that last night; that of Mugda in one of her most insinuating poses. When Rita had gone, Barry's grandmother said dryly, "She really made- a magnificent entrance. The Shirley, herself could not have been more convincing. . . , Too bad I had to spoil the act. . . . Well, well! I wonder who will be the next." No, Linda thought, promise or not, she could never tell old Miranda now. All that long evening os she and Barry's grandmother sat-— speechless for the most part— in that silent, empty house, she made plans in the back of her mind — incoherent, stupid plans, born of a numbed, despairing mind. All evening she was aware that old Miranda was watching her under veiled lids. And all about them was the fresh, spicey odor ol balsam from the tree that stood, sttirk and bare in the front parlor. . . . To-night, Barry was to have been here tp trim the Christmas tree. (To Be Continued) the dishes yesterday when you said you ha dto hurry for practice." Jane siiid, "Last time we went to see a show, I didn't want to go." And Dorothy repeated, "Neither did I. We both did it to please Kale." Considering Alternatives "Wi' could gut gallery tickets ;md sec both shows," offered Jane. "Mother wouldn't allow us to go to two movies in one day and you know it," said Dorothy. So they were just where- thc-y started. "We might go somewhere- else." suggested Jane. "Then neither of us would be ahead." "But I want you to sec- your picture," in,sisited her sister. "I'm not thiil mean." And Jane said she- wasn't either. Suddenly the two girls laughed. "I'll go where you go," said Jane, and Dorothy echoed it at once. So they drew mutches, and thc-y went to see the musical show. And D.irothy was rapturous. Motlie-rs should de|>end on the sense of fair judgment of their children. Not always, of course, but Ihe habit of de- ponding on a mother's word for everything is wearing and unnecessary. Let children get together and make up tla'ir own minds. Then you won't l>e in the position of an unfair umpire. HOLLYWOOD About this time ever.v year, studio executives diclaU llu-ir usual Mi-mo to All Department. 1 ;: "MuHiuifilm Company wishes eae-h and every one of its employes u very Merry Christinas and the huppie.st of holidays. However, rising production eo.sLs and the retjiiireinenls of oiir releasing schedule muke it absolutely necessary that work go on at full speed until al least 4 p. in. on Friday, the 24th. The co-operation of e-ne-h and eve-ry one of you is eariies-tly recuiest- cd. Each anil every producer, supervisor ami dopnrtment head will enforce this order." Work will begin a flurry of con- sc-ientious activity Friday morning, and will continue at thut pace- for about two hours. Then there will be telephone calls for the palyers. Messengers will begin delivering telegrams and package:;. Visitors will gather on the sets. By II o'clock, actors will l»yin blowing up in their lines. By noon, caterers' trucks will pull ui> a'»d bartenders will begin preparations for the afternoon party. At 12:30, directors will send their cempanies to lunch. At 1:30 they'll prepare to resume shooting, only to discover that a couple of convivial members of the cast have lunched on a fine | old bottle of 1812 Napoleon. So each director will say to each producer: "There's no use wasting any more film. Besdes, I've got to duck into town and pick up u couple of presents for the wife." Christmas Eve begins at 2 p. m. in Hollywood, and the studios, willingly or not, play Santa Clans in rathe prodigal fashion. Forty-two picture- now are- ui production, and about 10 of these represent shooting costs of $5000 an hour. When at least half a day of work is wasted, togther with a great deal of film, the loss i.s totaled in impressive- figures. And, of course, there's the Uiut-down on Christmas day. Yesteryears Most memorable- Christmases of some of the stars: Grace Moore remembers li)2i>, when she and another actress were stranded in New York with 25 cents between them. Purely on a bluff, they rented ;\ luxurious apart- men an .spent the holidays wondering how they'd pay for it. Then Robert Riskin, sans red coat and whiskers, appeared and hired Miss A Variety of House Frocks That Can Be Made Quickly Moore for a ploy. 'Nine year.s ajji>, Krrol Flynn spent Christmas- in jail. He and some pals had been celebrating too riotously the night before, and were arrested. Hut thi.s was in a little settlement in New Guinea, and (here wasn't any jail. So Hie head con.stahle look Flynn home to a dinner of roast pi« and champagne. John Barrymorc once spent a Christ- inns in Madras, imhan. Invited to dine, he sat down to what he thought was roast turkey. It was swan. Also he discovered that his non-Christian hosts didn't even know it was Christmas. Fred Mac-Murray recalls a Christmas aboard a snow-hound train in Wisconsin. He was a saxophone player in a band which was en route to another town. Stalled, his gang cut a tree beside the track, decorated it with the brake-man's red lantern and tinfoil from oiyaret packages. Then they entertained the other passengers with music. Sinione Simon's first Christmas in Hollywood was a heartbreak. Nobody asked her to a party and she .spent the day with her colored maid and a wistful little tree. Things are very different now. Another French girl. Ajimibe.Ua, also .spent her most dismal Christinas here in the film colony That was in 1U3-I, during her first visit, and before she became a star. Knowing no English, and without n single acquaintance in Hollywood, she spent must of the day in her. hotel room. Dined alone, and in trying to order a suitable feast she got all mixed up and was brought a double portion of liver and bacon. Slid! SeiTuls! Tricks (jf the trade: Real flowers are too bright for Technicolor, so when real flowers are used on sets they're toned down with udu.stnig of fine gray powder. One of the studios uses a rubber horse for uloseii|>.s in which the .buck- ground moves while an actor sits still in the saddle. In "Je/.ebel" there is mui-h talk of the red gown which Belle Davis wears to a party. But thi.s is a black-and- white picture, so the dre.ss really isn't red. It's sort of bron/e, which photographs as rod. RY CAROL DAY DLF.NTY of these simple dress- os in your closet will se>e you daintily through the whole winter.
