If income tax or other laws arc kept in the ice-box and brought out only when somebody wants lo curb some oilier activity, political or social, then their operation is not jnsL. To watch closely, to scrutinize, to criticize tlio methods of federal police forces is not to "bait" anybody. It is part of that eternal vigilance that'is the price of liberty. Meeting To Watch, To Be A nan, Is Not to Bait The controversy about the Federal Bureau of Investigation is beginning to degenerate into mere name-calling. That obscures the important point. Drunk with fancy phrases, partisans on both sides are hiding the importance of the 'matter behind a blizzard of invective. ' The FBI did a line job and a iw- . tional service in running down the kidnapers who swept over the country in a wave 10 years ago. They were cll'ec- tive and admirable. Recently it has been charged that some of its heads have become public- ily-cnr/.y and have been so intent on producing a flashy record that they have .disregarded people's rights and, ''-' spurred by heady fumes of war, have set up the beginnings of a national secret-police, European style. • The reply is that radicals are trying to blacken a splendid service for their ' own ends. That is irrelevant. It makes , no difference who makes the charges— the only''question is, arc they true? Lots of people have always rbcen unhappy about the custom that began with Al Capone, of convicting crimin- •' als presumably guilty of all kinds of crime ort federal income tax charges after local prosecution has failed. Perhaps it was the only way, but it is not the ideal,way. Fritz Kuhu of the Bund may be ,a scoundrel and-a, public menace,,...but...lo jail him for' 1 stealing money from an organization which had not complained • about the theft is less than an ideal way of disposing of him. Ditto Karl Browder, Communist head, .sentenced for a passport fraud committed years before. Were these men sentenced for • the crimes they were directly accused of, or for their political activities'.' The severity of the sentences suggests that , the latter might have had something to do with it. Everyone who knows Attorney General Robert Jackson knows that he is genuinely devoted to civil liberties. To hear him talk of the spy delirium .of the last war is to realize how deeply he abhors anything smacking of persecution. Bui even under such a supervisor as Jackson, the people c(o well to keep one eye on a n y federal police force. To prosecute men for income tax violation is all right. To prosecute them for thievery or passport violation is all right. f, But all who have committed similar offenses should be prosecuted, for the A rather moving letter arrived the other day from an American whose work has kept him abroad for the past 20 years. "I have been reading all the books I can get about America and her history," it said. "1 don't, know when I will see home again—perhaps never. 1 love the story of America." Perhaps he who has been long "among the alien corn" appreciates and loves his country best. But there are signs Dial Americans at home arc also learning to know and love their own story. A single year saw the movies produce "Gone With the Wind," "Abe Lincoln in Illinois," "Union Pacific," "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington," "The Grapes of Wrath," '•Northwest Passage," "Alexander Graham Hell," "Drums Along the Mohawk" and marty other films on the American scene past -and present. While it is true that America is part of a world community, it is also true that she lias something infinitely precious of her own. It is good to husbanfl that heritage. Six- Oranges A friend reports that he sat up lo a counter the other morning for a quick breakfast. He wanted orange juice, lots of it. The girl behind the counter, deftly using a little gadget, quickly squeezed six oranges into a glass and passed the glass over the counter. Of course it happens every day, millions of limes. But not in Germany, where oranges arrive only spasmodically as the: result, of some fortumile deal by Hie government. And not in England, where oranges, though available, arc too expensive to be squandered, six at a time, for a glass of juice. Not in any country in Europe, where a single orange is often a treat. Should a lingering sense, of shame be fell at .such American prodigality in the face of European distress? No. Men were meant to have such things, and have them bountifully. The shame is not for those who do enjoy them, but for those who have set them bcvoiul the reach of manv. SO THEY SAY The inlcr-Anifrlciin order >vns not built by hn- trcd mid terror.

Nothing surprises me any more. In fact, I know what happens Train then on. Yon start a mutiny, seize the ship and run oft lo hunt purple polar bears." Bradley readied out and took Duffy's glass away from him. "You gotta quit drinking that stun", Duffy," he said gravely. "Now listen to me. "Our papers chipped in to charter a plane and get us up here in time lo sail back with that outfit, That Douglas dame has scooped everyone. She's given her syndicate some newsbcats that'll be- used lo shame us men for years to come." "You got a right lo talk about beatings," Duffy mumbled. "You ain't heard nothing." "1 can guess, from that story she did when you were seasick." "It's a lie!" Duffy roared, bu Bradley ignored him. "Anyway," he continued. "Monroe and I have to get on boart that ship and make the trip bad with you. We've just got (o get in on a couple of those stories. TIolj mackerel, Duffy, do you this is the first time any fighle ever trained for such an imporatn scrap aboard a ship?" "You're tcllin' me," moaned. "Yeah," Monroe cut in. "Am wo don't dare try lo buy passag back. Douglas has loo much o an in with (his Captain lianser She'd put (he skids under us." "That's why we need your heir Duffy,"- Bradley said eagerl> "We've got to be \vell ^out to :^ 'before they discover us. It'll b too late to do anything about then." Kelsc Duffy closed his eyes and a be- iific smile stole over his face. Boys," he said, "this is wonder il. This gives me new Jifc. This . . aaahh, but that dame will irow a fit!" Bradley grinned. "Attaboy, 'uffy. I knew you wouldn't let us Duffy frowned, "It ain't gonna e easy. It might take, a little ough." "Whatever you need, Duffy, eVe got." '• KELSO was bubbling over so that he could hardly alk when he relumed to the ship ntl collared Pop Grimes. He ex- ilaincd everything. "But we can't even tell Eddie," ie warned. "I ain't so sure he'd >e on our side." And so it was (hat when the Stoiihern Belle nosed back out in- o Chaltham Sound and into the trails the next morning Ken 3radlcy and Bob Monroe were imoiig those present. It had taken icklish woi'k and two $50 bills to convince a couple of good-natured seamen that it was a gag. Val was in the chartroom with Captain Hansen when Barney viacGregor entered. Barney sat down heavily 'We've got two stowaways," he innounccd flatly. "We got what!" Hansen bcl- :owed. "Stowaways," Barney repeated wearily as though it might have )een something he had been expecting all along. "And what do you think they are — reporters They walk outa number four hold just like that, if you don't mind and say to announce them." "Reporters? Who are they? Val asked quickly. "Names arc Bradley and Mon roe. Know 'em?" "Where are they?" she aske<: "I know 'em all right." "Down talking to your youn. box-fighter. Well, what do we d wilh 'em?" * * * "VTAL didn't wait to hear Han .sen's answer. She flew dow the companionway to (lie lowe deck. They were seated on hatch cover wilh Cavalier.

Don't talk lo these eggs, ddie," she said. "They aren't nice eoplo." "I find 'em rather charming," ddie grinned. "The boys are old lends of mine." "Let's get' down lo cases, Val," [onroe said quietly. "You know hy we're here." Val sat down and clasped her necs. "Sure, but wouldn't it be ugh if we denied you the use of ie radio room?" she murmured. Bradley stiffened. "Don't worry, boys," Eddie roke in swiftly. "She won'!." "And why wouldn't I, Mister avalier? I'm still running this low." "Because I won't let you," he iid quietly. His gray eyes looked square into ' ers, and it was her gaze that altered. She smiled. "That was a swell iece of work. I'd like to know ow you mugs swung it?" "Then It's okay?" Bob asked agcrly. "Of course," she said quietly. Captain Hansen can make some ort of financial arrangement with our respective offices. And we von't rob you, either," she prom- sed. "See you later." "Say," Bradley said curiously. Have you got something on that lame? She could have spiked verything if she wanted to." "Want to watch me work on the iag?" Eddie evaded. * * * 'r«ORKY BRIGGS is in town," ^* Monroelvoluhlcered as Eddie vhalcd away at the bag. 'Yeah?" Eddie replied without coking at them. "Yeah. Looks sweet, too. He's tough boy, Eddie. And he can do himself a lot ofigood by belling you out." Eddie slopped and came over lo hem. "If you give me your word of honor you won't print this, I'll .ell you something." The}' nodded. "I'll knock htm out in eight rounds." They whistled softly as he went back to the bag. A few hours later Sparks called lo Eddie as he passed the radio room. "These rcpo'rler guys have me swamped." lie said. "Will you take this message to Miss Douglas for me?" "Sure," he said. He meant lo give it no more than a casual glance but something made him look closer. Eddie didn't mean to be nosey but somebody named Rodney said he wonid be. wailing fnr Val in Kan Francisco, and he had signed it wilh "love."
