Andy unwrapped the packages, exclaiming over her choices, ihere were gold horns that really tooted; miniature drums in red white and blue; crazy, hilarious' hats that would turn the partygoers into mock Napoleons or Buster Browns.

That is lhe thunderous fact for 133,000,000 Americans as 1941 ends in a rage of conflict on every continent and the Seven Seas. The battle lines now are tightly drawn for the first genuine World War in history. The sides have been chosen. The issues are clear-cut It is Germany, Japan and Italy, and a handful of puppets against virtually all the rest of the world. Of the sundry war declarations against Uncle Sam, that of Germany, potentially, if not immediately, will have the broadest effects, but it came almost as an anti-climax to a spectacular Japanese assault. 1. Japs Tnlk Peace- Star War "Remember Pearl Harbor" U Americas bitter battle cry in a grimly avenging war against Nippon. A fateful and severely punishing bomber attack on this Hawaiian stronghold came without warning on the quiet Sunday of Dec. 7 at the very moment two Japanese envoys were conferring with Secretary Hull about peace, and on 1 Uie heels of President Roosevelt's direct appeal to "The Son of Heaven." As congress declared war the whole country pitched tight-lipped into the stern task ahead, for which every able-bodied man and woman in the country will be called to the colors 2. A World War Opens "The shooting has started," President Roosevelt declared on Oct. 27 soon after the U. S. destroyers Greer and Kearny had been attacked by German subs and just four days before the Reuben James went down i with 1700 American sailors. This undeclared war, marked by American occupation of Iceland, the use of convoys, and the President's warning that Axis ships would be attacked on sight, became official Dec. 11 when Italy and Germany followed Japanese action.

The store's big tea room's had been cleared of furniture and transformed into .a fairyland Huge white bells which the decorators had used in the windows last year now hung from the ceiling. Compo board Christmas angels floated ecstatically on tissue paper clouds beside nude infants blowing New Year's horns. The walls were lined with a conglomeration of every left-over property the store afforded. Half of the lights were draped with mistletoe and holly. The others were hung with streamers welcoming 1943 There was no color scheme. There was little rhyme os reason to any of it. But it was typical of Dear- born's.half-n-half party and Carol liked it. With Mary and Bill she stood in the doorway and watched the dancers. Almost everyone was there ahead of them. Everyone but Andy and Mr. Herrick. Mr. Herrick wouldn't come. He had said so yesterday. Secretly Carol was glad of that. But she watched eagerly for Andy. Presently he came. His eyes swept the room until they found hers. "My dance," he said as soon as he reached her, asking permission of her a,nd Bill gt •-"•">" D!11 < j ,.«!«» "«'"^«"3 ujepc into ner voice. Already she was disregarding her pledge to forget business this one night. "You could do so much—" "It's like sailing a boat, Carol iou need a few sessions with the navigator before you can understand the compass. Let alone try to set the course." She looked away, her eyes misty with the haunting memory of a ' n ? v ' g f. tor " from whom he had not bothered to learn the course The moment passed and she again abandoned herself to the spirit of the party. She danced with Bill, with a dozen others. Twice Andy claimed ier, the last time for the climax of the evening, a starlight dance The music crooned softly The brilliant lights in the room began, to darken. As they did, the ceil- ng glowed with artificial stars Their mysterious dimness cast a spell over the dancers. The puls- ng melody of the orchestra was nccentuated only by the rhythm of moving feet. Carol closed her eyes, hugging he romance of the moment to her leart. The starlight dance with Andy! Unconsciously, she must have eaned against his shoulder His rms tightened. Then, startlingly swift, his eager ips touched hers. Touched and mgered. She opened her nly to close them again. Andy was kissing her. She was filled with glowing appiness, but only for a brief nreal moment. ' The starlight dance was over The lights flared up. She and Andy were almost in front of the door and standing there, a look ot complete disgust on her face, was Liiida Julian. (To » for the winter, but not the Russians Stalin launched a savage attack all along the line to bring the first stunning reverse to German might. 4.

The leader and his arranger are busy on some of them. Tschaikowsky Booms There are quite a few people who regard with horror any such monkey- mp iiMfh +l*« «u i . . eyes •••a «.in me uia masters, and to the musical fundamentalists any change in the classics may represent distortion and mutilation—as well as artistic larceny. For instance, the defenseless Tschaikowsky already has provided the themes for "Our Love" "Moon Love," "The Things I Love" and "On the He of May"—besides the aforementioned "Tonight We Love." Well, there's another side to it On the set, Martin told how a famed violinist was grumbling in Nef York recently that the dance bands were swiping all the classics. The musical director of a broadcasting company then informed the fiddler that "Tonight We Love" had created a Ts- chaikowsky boom and had tripled the sales of the original piano concerto in disc and sheet music form Pianist Jose Iturbi complimented Martin for helping to popularize good music. Seems to regard as well worth while anything that serves to make the public better acquainted with substantial compositions. And as for stealing, maybe it's more honest to lift a whole melody and acknowledge the source than it is to filch thematic snatches for "original" tunes as composers have been doing for a long long time. For Ears Only _, Anyway, that's the situation, and Freddy Martin and his band are riding the crest of g new musical wave The outfit, which hasn't had a vacation in three years, gets around the country a lot, and the leader says uiat the taste in dance music is definitely on the melodious side. Eastern colleges, he recalled, were the first to go for hot stuff and the first to abandon it as undignified when swing became an exhibitionistic "Of course there are swing fans everywhere," he went on. "But mostly they buy records and sit and listen to em.
