Diana could scarcely believe her ears, knowing how furidus Adela would be at any such arrangement. "Oh, > but I couldn't—I'd rather not!" He smiled a little bleakly. "As another special favor, then.

There is the additional fact that the leaders of railway labor are not personally ambitious, are not aggressively trying to add meat-cutters, lathers and. insurance clerks to their ranksi or dabbling in international politics They represent railway labor, and they are content to do that and do it well. No doubt there will be some disappointment among rail workers at the raise obtained, 9^ and 10 cents an hour. No doubt there will be some disappointment among rail executives at the additional wage bill implied, possibly $325,000,000 a year. Yet both are probably convinced that this settlement is in the main fair, and infinitely preferable to a strike, with its bitterness and loss to both sides and its never-to-be-regained setback to national defense. The railroads, employes and employers, are to be congratulated on having, equitably settled what might ftave been a nasty problem, and on furnishing to the country and to the world a renewed example of the fact that, given good-will, intelligence, and a sense of responsibility, IT CAN BE DONE. Many Planes (Continued Prom Page One) fie. Imperial headquarters in an announcement broadcast by Domei said that two battleships and a mine sweeper had ben sunk, four heavy cruisers damaged, many merchant- ships seized and a score of planes destroyed aground in air attacks on Hawaii and the Philippines. The communique said also that a JJ. S. aircraft carrier had been sunk by submarines off Honolulu "although this is not confirmed." So far as naval losses went the Japanese said they escaped unscathed and acknowledged the loss of only two planes in Philippines actions. The Japanese said that a mine sweeper, the 840-ton Penquin, was sunk in an air attack early Monday on Guam, a U. S. naval station. (An Italian broadcast quoted Domei as listing the 33,000-ton Pennsylvania and the 29,000-ton Oklahoma as lost. Domei also reported to have said that two U. S. destroyers and two oil tankers had been destroyed.)' The Japanese reported little of their first air assault Sunday on Pearl Harbor and other objectives but said 50 to 60 American planes had been shot down m combat over Clark field and 40 over Iba in the Philippines. The Japanese seemed also to have won a military-diplomatic victory by gaining Thailand's consent to passage it Japanese troops to meet British Malayan forces. (Continued from Page One? Mrs.'W. M.
