Colonel Church Rules. A Has anything constructive been nr- complislied by the- gran<l.sliii)<l |>l;iy "'' Col. Sjumiel Harden Church in bis offer o{ ii million-dollar r e \v a r d lor "bringing Hitler homo alive'"; One may doubt it, and one miiy doubt Uint any similar gestures will do Uu: faintest, bit of good in reltiniiiiK tl'« world to sanity. Church, as head of the Carnegie Institute, has a responsible position, lie. .should know that DID United States is at pence with Germany. He should know that a grandstand oiler of this kind of a reward for the kidnaping of the head of a nation with which his own is at peace can accomplish nothing valuable, but can on the oilier hand only add to the world's already overabundant supply of illl-\vil. ^ Colonel Church has ridden olV in several directions on several horses in the past. The title of colonel attaching to this worker for peace, by the way, descends from a time when he was on the staff of Governor Hoadlcy of Ohio and won a gift sword by sterling military work in suppressing riots in Cincinnati in 1881. Church was miliinnlly pro-ally as soon as European war broke out in 3014. As early as in 15, his writings were included in a little book published in England called "Sixty American Opinions on the War" which purported to show "how many friends we hiivi: in America." lie bitterly assailed l>r- maiiy as solely responsible foe thai war, and was not without influence in building (hc'inood that caused the United States to enter it in 1917. Once the United States was in, Church was pretty implacable. "We arc engaged in a bloody and remorseless war with Ihe most pitiless and despicable nation that has ever attacked the peace and dignity of civilization . . . this high note of raging battle ought to bo sounded until . . . peace is within our grasp and upon onr own terms," he wrote. Church emerged from that war as an officer of the French Legion of Jlonor. In September of 1938 he was ' urging that America resolve that it "will never light again," though in Ihe same breath he assailed Hitler n.s "Ihe most malevolent and dangerous power on earth." He urged'that America keep out of the coming war, though all (he world should sneer. Now comes this gnitesi|\m demand for a million-dollar international kid- naping. Time will show whether Colonel Church has contributed anything to peace and to his espoused cause of keeping the United States clear of war. But wo'presume to guess lhat the war in Europe is now in a stage of bitterness which does not lend ilself to settlement by a circle of men evolving hare-brained publicity schemes in the- comfortable chairs of Pittsburgh's PII- <inesno Club. Thumbing Through Life. Gradually Ibis business of thumb- printing is sneaking up on us. We began by Ihumbpriiiting criminals, Then we included possible criminals, people arrested though not con- victi'd. Consuls are now thumbprinling passports, and all kinds of identifying document,s now re<|iiire the mystic smudge of whorls ;iml lines Dial make up (he "Who's Who" of the manual world. Indianapolis now has a new one. If yon want lo go lo "Uncle Joe" under Ihe sign of thu Three Halls lo borrow I wo dollars on an old watch or an abandoned banjo, you lirsi affix the mystic Ihumbpriiil lo a card. That's police regulation. They'll be along later lo sec if perhaps Ihe telltale smudge connects you with crime. The Indiana slate supreme court, says (he International Association of Police Chiefs, has upheld this as no invasion of privacy,-#but a legitimate means of crime detection. Thus, little by .little, the lime approaches when we shall literally thumb our way from cradle to cofliu, like hitch-hikers whose passport is the overextended thumb.

A Thrce-Fouilhs Majority By a void of llirrc to one, the American people have reaffirmed their constitutional iij!l>' lo criticise their courts. This is the result of a nation-wide survey concluded by Ihe Institute of Public Opinion, popularly known as the Cinlliip poll. The cau- , yass was promplnl by (lie rost-Dispalch ?on- tfi)i|)l rase. Public sentiment in Missouri was llio snim: us UiiU registered elsewhere, ixicnlly and generally, 75 per cent of the voters declared "that newspapers should be allowed lo the decisions of Judges," while 2f> per cent voted. "Ihal .Imliics should be free from such criticism. 1 ' The Gallup |Hill is, of course, without legal substance or ellcct, it is an informal expression, arrived at by buttonholing citizens. Tlicrc can lie no competent doubt, though, Unit a ref- crcmlum conducted under tlic regulations and authority of lav: would produce a similar result. Thiil llic American people would vole down the right of free speech—and that, is essentially and literally (he issue—is cmilr inconceivable. The American people are overwhelmingly deliT- iniiicd to maintain their democracy, inLact and vigorous. Tlic' people will continue to criticise the decisions of Judges', and they will do it through Die ngt-ucy of the i>cu\sunix>rs which make such criticism articulate. The people will continue to criticise the court* —their procedure and rules of evidence—n.s they have long been doing in Missouri, with Ihe profession of Ihe law leading (he way. The people will continue to criticise the law itself when Ihey believe Ihe law serves wither justice nor the public weal. For Mich is the law of the land, as written in the Constitution. Such is Ihe American tradition. Such is democracy, in both theory and practice. —SI. Louis Post-Dispatch.

CHAPTER VII J^AGEHIA', Paul Whinlon waited for Sherry lo continue. "Yes, Sherry, go on." Hut Sherry's sentence was never finished. At that moment a tall, thin chap, with a great mop of uloml hair, stepped into the box. "Sherry Bond!" "Shcp Grant! \Vlial arc you do- nig here?" She jerked Iier hand free, grasped Grant's oulslcelclied hand. Wharton looked up, making; litllo cfTorl to conceal his resentment. "My friend, Paul Wliarlon Shop. This is Sliep Grant. Sit down, Sliep." "Swell eolt you've gol, Sherry," Grant was saying. "He's got everything. And can he run! And Madden— I couldn't liavc ridden Pepper Boy much bcilcr myself. I intended offering, but I couldn't make it in [rein Chicago in time." "Since when have yon been riding on the flat?" Wharton asked. "Thought you were the v.'hilc- haircrt boy in stccnlechasing." "I do vide over the sticks," Shcp Grant answered nonchalantly, hj s eyes never leaving Sherry's face "but I'm light. Going to ride on the flat this season, too. But say Sherry, about the Derby—" "Paul was just speaking of it," she said, lonelessly. "Yeah? About Pepper Boy? Say —heard there were a couple of claims—did you lose him?" She shook her lieacl. "P.jiil says he was ready to save him." "That so?" The intruder looked suspiciously at Wharlon. The loiter ignored his glance. "Paul advised me twice not to slart the colt in a claimcr. When I did, he tried to claim him for me. He—and the other fellow— both lost on technicalities." "Let me ael Ihis sfraighl," the ridcv looked from Wharton to .Sherry. "lie was going to let you buy him back, at the claiming price?" "Yes." The blond chap whistled—sofUy. And grinned. Sherry saw Whar- lon's face turn fiery red. She looked at the second man. "Sliep Grant, what's up?" "Not a thing," he snid wilh an exaggerated drawl, "nol a little Ihing. But yon ought lo hone up on claiming rules, before you fail for bedtime tales." WHARTON was on his fed. lie said L-! low (ones: "You might HOW to EAT to BEAT the HEAT cxnlai!) that—and you might ox- plniu whevo you come in on this." "I come in right here, fellow," Shop Grant got to his feet, faced Whai'loi). "Maybo Hint's business, Wharlon—you'i-o a wlii/, at business; but racing's something else again." Sherry's voice rose insistently, "Please explain, Shcp." "Nolhing special to explain," he luvncd to her. "But you should know that no horse claimed can slarl in (he name of its former owner till 30 days have passed— and H days from today the Ken- lucky Derby is run. Seems as i[ Whnrton was going lo be in the Derby—\vjfh Topper Boy carrying his colors. Later, the coll might run in yours again." "You may kn|>w racing," Whar- lon's voice crackled, "btit you've got a lot to learn about human nature. My colors are going to be in (he Derby, carried by Red Soldier, the only colt of real Derby caliber' on this (rack—as you')] see when the Handicap is run. He's going to Kpreadeagle lhat field. I don't need Sherry's coll—and if I did, I haven't sunk that low." He turned his shoulder, then 1 .spoke over it to the gentleman rider, "Good clay, Grant." * * * QUANT slood there tor a ino- menl, reddened from top of soft collar to edge of his fair hair, then quietly turned mid left (he box. Sherry, over Paul Wharton's shoulder, watched him move oft in the aisle crowds. "Paul," she asked, "is it true— what Shep said? That I couldn't buy the colt back in less than 30 days?" "You could buy him back the next minute —tut you couldn't race !;;.>)! until 'JO clays passed." "1 see." She glanced out toward the track, where a field was parading to the post. "Paul, then the colt couldn't—" He broke in, sensing her qtics- lion, "The coll would have run in your name, silly." He spoke the words lightly. "How could he?" she asked, a cloud gathering in her face. "Silly!" he repealed, as if to a child, '-He'd have run in tbe name of Mrs. Paul Wharton, of course!" "Oh, oh!" she repeated, eyes focused on his face. "How very sweet of you! Using my Pepper Boy as a sort of bribe—to get me to marry you!" * * t r.JOr fears burned Sherry's eyes • as she hurried through the crowd lo the big man 'standing at the mil. •-•• : "fn the nacldock, they say Red here will .supply that—for (lie or- c<l all the food wants of man. At liny rate everything (tic body need? lo keep fit is supplied in the Soldier's a standout—yet he's w>\ even favorite — maybe- young Wharlon's putting over a good thing . . . wish I knew." "He totd mo just a minute ago," Sherry said before she. thought, "lhat Red Soldier would spread- eagle his field. 1 "He did, eh? Uncle Bill lowered his glasses, asked in a flash: "How'd ha say it—bragging, or serious?" "He—why—" Sherry fried la reconstruct the mood of the moment, "I guess it was bragging— in a way; but if his coll doesn't make good—well, he's laid liimseK wide open. And lo a man who'll Jeer plenty at him." Willie Bond considcvcd the matter for all of three seconds. Then went into action.

Red Soldier, in the light green and cherry red blocks of. the Wharlon Stable, was culling up at the post —Ihe starter was placing him outside. "They're ofl!"

Sherry snw the green and red shoot to 'the front— the jockey was cutting across lo Ibe rail— he had stolen the start— lie was three lengths ahead! Tlic rest of the race was a blur lo Sherry. The horses swung into the stretch, a spot ot green and cherry in front. Then she saw something yellow and black leap out from the pack of horses behind. Now two horses were lighting it out, down that short stretch. Willie Bond seized Sherry's arm in vise-like grip. He was screaming in her ear: "Now's the time, lo make his run — come on, you rascal! Come on— don't let us down — turn him loose — let him run, you fool!" The jockey on Red Soldier, as if he heard, lifted his veins, (lung himself forward, began hand^riding his mount; pressing hancfs against the colt's neck — urging him on. A hundred feet from the wire the challenger came alongside — running fast.
