Tlie War After The War No matter who wins (he wm- ravaging Europe, no matter wlmt of a settlement emerges, one thin;; is certain. .It will be followed by a war for trade scarcely k>ss bitter I ban tlie military war itself. Every nation in Europe is frantically expanding its productive facilities. The product oj' thai Crcnxieil activity is being shot away in war, to no one's benefit. But when the war ends and the survivors flock back home, jobs will be a necessity. The expanded factories will await them'. The factories must run, for the men must work. They will produce goods for sale. They must bo sold. Sold they will he, by hook or crook, by subsidy or barter or polilical pressure. Every market in tho world will be crowded with them. Into this com- v petilivc field, the United Slates will also be plunged. How well we shall fare in that, maelstrom depends much on what we do now. For instance, 'Britain is malting heroic efforts lo continue to export goods in the face of the. war ell'oi'l, in order to hold markets and to provide exchange to buy. imports. Y*et the United States- has already replaced Britain as chief source of Argentina's import trade. Despite the blockade and 'the'sea'war, Germany up to February had been contriving to .ship to Argentina about one-fourth of her usual export shipments. The war for trade in South America has not even been suspended during ihu military \var.~ .The United States, inevitably, has been showing great gains, .largely «t the expense of Germany, but also at that of Britain. Our exports lo South America doubled in January as compared with 1980. The Import-Export bank .financed sale of nearly §13,000,000 worth of railroad equipment to ^ The New York corporation which built the piers -of Lima, Peru, has now contracted to build others at Coronel, Chile. Firestone is building a new rubber fae- . tory in Brazil. There are other signs of progress. 'But all this has distinct liuiils unless ways can be contrived lo import more 'from South America. International trade must bo roughly an exchange if it is to bo built O n ;l permanent foundation. The Bureau of Foreign and Domestic Commerce j s already hot on the track lo discover, uon-compi-lilivc products which can be more lil.willy bought by the United States in Ihe south, and to encourage such trade. All this has an importance heyoud •. the v.urcty commercial. Rivals for this trade do not hesitate to use methods of OUT OUR WAY '"economic compulsions shrewdly dovitj- e'd'to force greal iircas info 'political spheres of influence." • Every dollar's worth of trade the United Slates can secure thus :lias a benefit boyond Hie purely commercial. \\'c do not want any such "polilical • spheres of influence." But unless we hold our sSiare of the trade, others have .jns( that much greater opportunity to establish them.

CHAPTER XXIII \VfHEN Val finally' went to bed she knew what she was going to tell Rodney Blair if he asked her agiiiirfo marry him. She found it nuile a relief now that she had made up her mind. She wandered if Rodney would be there to meet tliem when they docked. She had a hunch he would. Val svas right. Wlien they finally slipped alongside their'dock and were made fast, she saw Rodney Blair waving up at her. Rodney wasn't INC only one Ihei c, however. Sam Golden was so excited he almost lell into the bay. A half, dozen sports writers were on hand and a battery'.of' pliotQjjniphcrs made ready to shoot the works. Once again she had changed Inlo more feminine clolhes, donning the same suil she had worn when she boarded the ship almost two weeks ago. Eddie Cavalier wjis watching her when she ran down the'gang- plank and up to the tall, mus- lached man at the gate. He saw hev kiss him lightly and turned away. Turning, he bumped into Capt. Steve Kansen. "Well, Steve, coming to tlie fight tomorrow night? Bring all the boys. Don'i worry about tickets. They're on me." He laughed somewhat nervously. Deliberately Hansen looked' at Val walking off wilh Rodney Blair. Then he looked back at Eddie. . "We'll be there, all right, son. An' we're'for you all the way. In every way, too," he said but the significance was lost on Eddie. * * a E CAVALIER was loo'busy! trying to'drive (he memory of Val kissing the stranger out of his mind. , •; Sum Golden embraced him li^o a long-lost son. Tlie cameramen were snapping pictures all over (lie place. But when they looked for ,Val Douglas she hact disappeared. Eddie swore nt himself when he searched for her face at the boxing commissioner's office when I hey reported for the weigliing-in ceremonies at noon 'the next day. She wasn't there. He wondered if she'd be at (lie fight. He posed for the photographers shaking hands with Corky Briggs. Corky looked good. He looked bigger imd stronger than when Eddie had last seen him. The photographers asked them to square off together for a shot and Eddie wished someone woutd'i'ing the bell right then and let iherh get It over with.* Duffy and Pop didn't let him' out of sight once that afternoon. "They went back .to their hotel. Pop told him to.lie down "and nap for a couple of hours. He lay on the bed for 10 minutes and got up. He was thirsty, he explained to Duffy. Duffy, pulled up a chair and sat down next to him. "Eddie," he said, "you're not fooling mo. It's that girl. I know. Of all the times for a dame to put the clamp on you it had to be now! "Eddie . . . don't you see ... you've GOT to get her out of your mind. Look, Eddie ... I'm not try In 1 to run your private Hie. But at a time like this . . . this is different. Anyway . , . anyway, she's strictly poison." : 'Don'l ever say (hat again, Cliffy. Never. I love that girl." A great weight seemed (o fall on Duffy Kelso and crush him. There were fears in his eyes as he got (o his feel. Ife crossed to the window and looked out. Duffy Kelso also had a love. He loved Eddie Cavalier as a father loved a son. And now Duffy felt like a father seeing that son hurt. If only it were a dream. But it Was real. Brutally real. * * * POP GRIMES could never recall when it had been so quiet in Eddie Cavalier's dressing room before a fight. Absolutely no one was to be admitted, Duffy had notified the guard outside. No one. Not even reporters. Pop gave Eddie's bandages a final inspection, wordlessly. The only sound in the room was the drip', drip of a faucet. Duffy took out a cigar. He couldn't smoke in the dressing room, so he chewed It viciously. Pop didn't like things Hie way they were. II was a violin string stretched'too'tight. Ife was afraid. 'He wished the preliminary would be over so they could go to work. Outside he could hear the muffled roar of the crowd. Someone must have been belted a good one. Then, after hours, it seemed, they knocked on the door. "Okay, Cavalier," a mufllcd voice said, and they went out into the night and down the crowded aisle. Eddie almost ran. A tremendous roar went vip as he.climbed through the ropes. Another, im instant later, heralded Corky Briggs. Corky-canie'over and shook hands with Eddie in his corner. Eddie looked down at the ring side as he shuffled liis feet in th resin and suddenly froze. Val Douglas In the second press row was looking at him, her lips slightly parted,'as though'she wauled lo say something but couldn't, lie turned away quickly and went to- the middle o'f llic ring for instructions. Back in his cornet ho slipped out o( the'blue bathrobe with the large while "E. C." on the back. Duffy was intoning lasl-second instructions in his ear, but he didn't hear a 'word. And then live hell which mercifully forced lill other thoughts out of Eddie Cavjlicr's mind. * 9 4 T^DDIB jabbed with his left experimentally.

He speared Corky wilh another left and dancffl away, Brii'gs fallowed,, worked him into ;i corner and landed lo his body again. He hooked Eddie sharply with a left and llien dug into his ribs with another thudding right. "He's working downstairs," Duffy told him hoarsely between rounds. "Keep dancing away anci spearing him 'with your left. Don'l let him 'get in close. He's dynamite, in there." Eddie didn't have to be told that. Corky Briggs was tough. At the end o'f the third round Eddie's body was red. "Two more rounds like that and he'il have you'brokc in two," Duffy said savagely. Pop sponged him oft and' rubbed liis log muscles. The bell attain. * * + J?DDIE walked right into Briggs and hooked him'.with a wicked left. He followed It np wilh Iwo straight left jabs to the face. Eddie bobbed and throw a right, but he was ii'llltle loo eager. He went' off balance just a trifle,'but enough for Briggs to step in. Corky looped a right that landed high on Eddie's cheek. It slag- gercd him and Briggs put him against the ropes with a short right lo the heart. Eddie's guard came down momentarily and Briggs flashed a left to his head. H caught Eddie just above the eye. Eddie covered up and weathered the storm as the bell sounded, but there was a trickle of blood running down his face. Pop worked on it furiously will) collodion and cotton 1 swab.
