PAGE SIX Soviet Pact Hits Christian Spirit Hitler's Tie-up With Atheist Stalin Offends Many People By the Associated Press j WASHINGTON — The news spot-; light may play ott the western front, j but the attention of knowing states- j men and historian.-; is riveted on the j astonishing thrust of Asiatic influence into Europe—the occupation of east- j em Poland by the Red troops of Stalin, i Uppermost in their minds is the i frank admission by Herr Hitler that j he himself made the agreement with | the Asiatic-minded Stalin that en-, oblcs Russians to drive their military j machine up to the gates of Warsaw. | Hitherto. European rulers have com- j promised with Asiatics, dickered with j them, signed treaties with them, but j they have never ventured to incure i the wrath of their own people by j practically bowing the Asiatics into i the European parlor. Any statesman who dyes that vio- 'lates a natural law that existed long | before Kipling put it into words. "East i is East, and West is. West—and never j the twain shall meet." i It is not yet certain just how far! Hitler has invited the Russians into j . Europe. But it is certain that he ad- j mils his aims in the east are "limit- i ed." It is certain that the toe of the | . Russian, boot has been planted firmly at the Rumanian gateway to the Balkans, and Stalin is closer to War- • saw than any Russian before him ever j get save by military conquest. j Keep this point in mind; The old' Russia of Catherine professed, at least. to be a Christian Russia. But not so i Stalin; he professes athesism. And! Christianity is still a living force j in western Europe and has affected history time and again. It was the Christian heritage that) enabled the Austrians to summon up j the courage to beat of fthe Ottoman j hordes at the gates of Vienna in 1529. It was the Christian heritage thai more or less bound England. France, Austria and Spain together against the Russian advance on Poland in the I days of Catherine II. even though! Catherine was powerful enough to j dub Poland her doormat to Europe. Her legions did wipe their feet on the Polish doormat. But they never entered the door to the western world. And it was the same Christian heritage that finally dismembered the great Ottoman empire that Solyman built. Eventually the western pow-1 ers divided it among themselves as - ruthlesly as the Turkish soldiery had split up and conquered the Balkans in the heyday of Ottoman power.

She clung to the some day as if it were a living thing. One day Florence A very came to her in regard to changing her desk to a less drafty position. Before leaving, she said, "Ted, my husband, has a job. A good job, steady. He wants me to quit working, but I think that's silly, don't you, Mrs. Harkness?" Marian asked her to sit down. She talked to Florence Avery for half an hour. The next Saturday Florence quit her job. Marian felt as elated as if she had brought a million-dollar account into the office. If she could save another young couple it might hp"n. Always she was building, ijailding, working to make herself worthy of the big job which was to be hers. Randy and Dolly did not return. Randy felt that he deserved a vacation, so Dolly wrote. They were going around the world. It might be March or April before they returned. Never had there been so beautiful a honeymoon. Marian missed Dolly more each day. But, on the other hand, she wanted to do her proud job alone. For her own satisfaction, she wanted to lay each stone herself. She knew now why Dan had she wouldn't have it. No. love was her goal. She was through with half measures. Perhaps not the love of 12 years ago. Perhaps Dan's hurt went too deep for that. But pride in his wife, she must give him that. Pride, that she had fought her battle alone and come out victorious. Pride, that she had done it for him. No whimpering now—not ever again. January passed on even tread. [ On the last clay of the month Marian gathered up the accumulated belongings of 10 years. She said the stenographers and the office j, boy. She kissed Sally. "Take good care of G. F.," she She went away with two checks, \er salary check and a bonus of $500. No one except Mr. Fellows •mew why she was leaving. They loped she'd like the west, they said they'd miss her. * * * QHE had expected the clays to be lonely, the waiting hard. Instead, the days wore full and lappy. She met her neighbors, gossiped with them in the hall, talked about cooking and slip covers and babies. The brittle hardness went out of her face, her hair curled in soft ringlets, some days she forgot make-up entirely. She was young again, sweet, simple, glowing with a secret joy. In those waiting days she worked harder at being a homemaker than she had ever worked in the office. She read books on child care and feeding, she toiled over her budget, finding excitement in making two rather precarious ends meet. Dan would be proud and happy that she had lived on his checks while waiting for the baby. Often her^lips moved in silent prayer. "Help me to bc a good wife and mother, God. Watch over Dan and keep him for me. Don't let me be too late." It was the last of April (hat a letter f "om Dolly was forwarded from IT--? oflicc. Although Marian had written frequently, addressing her letters to strange, romantic ports, she had said nothing of her new mode of life. Dolly might correspond with Dan, they had been the best of friends, and Dan must not know. Dolly's letter was postmarked "New York" and, all at once, Marian wanted to sec Dolly, all at once she needed her. She tore open the envelope. Dolly had written, "We're back, darling. Bc prepared to listen to every detail of the world's most perfect honeymoon. Will call you at the office on May 1." \V/ITH (lie knowledge that Dolly *' was near, Marian rcali/.ed how greatly she had dreaded the coming ordeal, how she had braced herself to go into it gallantly alone. Dolly. The very thought of her was like the pressure of n kind hand. Dolly would see her through. She went to the market that morning, taking the long way 'round, walking slowly, breathing deeply oC the warm air. She passed children and smiled at them, women who trundled baby carriages and stopped to talk^ She felt a common bond with the world of women and babies. In the market, standing before ; i counter piled high with wet, fresh vegetables, she heard a voice and turned quickly. Angie Doran, thinner, gray, a bit shabby, stood beside her. Marian hesitated for an instant. She and Angie Doran had not parted on the best of terms. Then she said warmly, "Angie Doran— I'm glad to see you." Angle turned, surprised, Instinctively drawing back. "Hello, Marian," she said coolly. Marian woulci not bc repulsed. 'I've wondered so often about you, Angie. Do you live near here?" "Yes," politely. "And you?" She seemed slightly confused by Marian's appearance. "I'm over on Clarcmont." And, . impulsively, "Come home with me, Angie. I think you and I have a great deal in common." "You're not working for Mr. Fellows any more?" "No, I'm very busy having a baby," smiling. "You're smart, Marian—smart to slop before they shoved you out." An old bitterness edged her voice. "I was shoved out—by a young girl. That's what I want to talk to you about. Will you come home with me?" (To Br? Continued) that Hitler has ignored these lessons from history. The response from the pope was immediate. His newspaper L'Ossorvator Romano declared the other day: "Russia is rctratcing its steps from Asia to Europe and is already in the heart of it.

Pr.litieM circles did not except to repeat the peace proposals made in the German-Soviet Russian statement from Moscow last week, as they were considered sufficiently clear. Hitler also was expected to rea.ssrt that the new order in the East, achieved by the German and Russian armies in Poland, would not be altered. There were increasing indications that Germany regared neither Prime Minister Chamberlain address yesterday nor Foreign Secretary Lord Halifax' comment today as "constructive." Chamberlain said "mere assurances" from Germany were not enough and Lord Halifax asserted Britain would examine any peace proposals 'with care and wo shall measure thorn against the principles for which we have taken up arms." The official news service observed that Lord Halifax "stirred up the past" but bad "nothing concrete" to offer concerning the ftuture.
