Stick Emphasis For Peace Demands THEODORE ROOSEVELT once remarked that in its for- 1 eipri relations America should walk softly and carry a big stick. . . it t The advice promptly became enshrined in a proverb, but the practical application'of it soon lapsed. Succeeding administrations, have been skillful at walking softly, but the big stick has rested among the cobwebs back in the woodshed. Now/however, there are signs that the big stick is being dusted off and made ready for use. The American notes to Japan in connection with the Panay incident had a sternness and a grim insistence that American rights be observed which had not been heard around'Washington in a long-time. The swinging ot the bio- stick could be seen dimly in the background. It is worth wh.'lo to examine the reasons for this trend. * * * F IRST of all. Uncle Sam once more has a big stick to swing— an almighty big one. when you stop to look at it. The navy has been built up to a point where it can demand respect everywhere. The building is still going on. Naval estimates for the next fiscal year, it is expected, will run to *680,000,000 or better. All'arms of the fleet have been strengthened and will be strengthened still further. The air force also has been built up. Only .recently a prominent British authority testified that the American enforce was "one of the largest and possibly the most efficiently armed" in existence. American war planes are the beat in f :he world, America has a good number of them, and more are on the way. -All of this means that American might is once again a factor to be reckoned. No longer it is merely potential strength, expressed in terms of latent resources; it is actual, visible strength, ready to be used. No foreign office on earth is likely to overlook it. On top of this, evidently there has been a realization in ...Washington that there are more ways than one to work for a peaceful world. One way we have tried for years: the way ot scrupulously observing all of our own treaty obligations and piously hoping that other nations would do the same. This way has not worked any toe well—to put it mildly. The most solemn treaties have been gaily disregarded of late. America's humble requests for a little international good faith have been ignored. The other way is to demand bluntly that treaty obligations be respected—and to have that big stick casually swinging, in the background, while the demand is made. •K * * riTHER way may be risky. But at least the second way has L some chance of success, whereas the first way seems to have no success at all in this modern world. Muscle seems to be the one thing that commands a hearing in international politics nowadays. Uncle Sam has more muscle than anyone else; if he is at last getting ready to put it on display and let it talk for him, who can blame him? National Guard Purge pOV. HERBERT LEHMAN of New York took a drastic but "\3"well-advMsed step recently in ordering the immediate dis- • solution of the "Russian Battery" of the 244th coast artillery regiment of the New York national guard. This was an outfit sponsored by Rossiya, a newspaper published in New York by Russian emigres, and composed : almost entirely of "White Russians." The matter came to a , head when officers and men of the unit attended a pro- Fascist ball in uniform. Governor Lehman was quite right in declaring that an American national guard regiment should have no room for any unit bearing a foreign designation—whether it be Russian, British or whatnot. He was also right in insisting that members of the guard must "under no circumstances employ their status as national guardsmen to further or promote any so-called nationalistic group or non-American policy or racial cause." A national guardsman, like a soldier in the regular army, "has one country to support—and only one. The moment he tries to support two, his usefulness as a guardsman ends.

Linda did not know that Tony's programs were always broadcast, nor that when she had finished, people all over the land as well as in that crowded room, wiped their eyes and smiled waveringly at each other, She only knew that when it was over, she began to tremble, and that someone steadied her and led her to a chair.

"Just some little Christmas songs — to make my evening perfect." In his earnestness the little man looked as if he were about to burst into tears. "The more simple the better. There will be a boys' choir to help with the choruses. You can even practice with them a little. ... If you will do this for me, I will gladly pay you ten times the amount of your check."

Lights twinkled in what seemed to be the vast dome of heaven —- and outshining them all, one bright, clear star. And there •-mder the .star, as if transfixed in ipace, was Linda in her simple frock, with her fair hair frosted by the- soft overhead lighting, her pale young face, and that look in her eyes of a thoughtful child. Bare-ly visible in tho shadows about her feet, like a group of disembodied cherubs, clustered the bright faces of the choir boys. So f-mda .sang, very softly and tenderly — "God Rest Ye, Merry "The Little Lord Jesus" — "The Virgin's Lullaby" arid "O Holy Night!" — accompanied sometimes by the shrill, with a strange woman sitting by her bod. The woman introduced herself with bursting pride as the sister of Tony Abruzzi. Mrs. Campagno was fully as round, almost as funny, and quite as kind as her brother. When Linda wanted to get up, "It is worth my you up till the doctor cornea t>;ain. If h..- says, 'All right'; then you get up — not be* fore." When the doctor did come, he said, after a brief examination, "Nothing the matter with you that I can see except that you were completely worn out. Been losing sleep over something, haven't . . . "Oh, well," he finished with a short laugh when Linda murmured something evasive, "of course yotj won't tell me." Tony, who had come in with the doctor, burst out, "Then it's all right she sings again tonight, doctor? It won't hurt her?" "I should say," replied the doctor, whose eyes had-been studying Linda's face, "that singing — or doing anything that will keep her mind occupied — is the best thing for her." "But," said Linda, "you can't want rne to sing again. I don't think they liked me very well. They — they were so quiet." "She thinks they did not like her!" Tony crinkled his eyes at his sister. "And them out there bawling like babies. . . . Wait, Miss Beflton — listen to this:" He caught up one of the papers he had carried in with hi>< and opening it, began to read aloud: ' 'When an unknown singer steps, unannounced, upon the stage of a popular night club in this age of jazz and swing, and within two minutes has a crowd of wisecrackers who know all the answers reaching for their pocket handkerchiefs—that's news in this or any city.

'When the newspaper boys begin to ask qui? c tion.s, you got to think fast sometimes. . . . And I guessed you'd like to keep your own name in the family." "Thank you," said Linda soitly.
