" IS-^l' Americans Want Their Washing Americans are. in some ways, an even funnier race than the French art alleged to be in the words of the old song. Come war or revolution, come wea or wee, they want their creature comforts. The complaints of some of the passengers on the Iroquois that the passag hc'meward from Europe was rough and the service terrible makes us think o one of the greatest of the short stories of W. Somerset Maugham, which h called "Mr. Harrington's Washing." Mr. Harrington was an American in Russia at the time of the revolution, seeking certain contracts. So thoroughly inculcated in him were his mid- western ways, that he had no understanding whatever of what was going on wound Rim" He saw everything in terms of his own life and home surround- iner. A meek enough man. Mr. Harrington stood by until he got his contract, from a cynical official who finally signed it knowing that his government was rioc'.ned and that it meant nothing. As revolution lowered overhead, Mr. Harrington was finally persuaded to leave the city, but insisted that no decent ptrson. would do so without proper clean shirts. His laundry Had been sent cui. and those slovenly Russians, who never seemed to do anything right, had n« returned it. That the talk of revolution could really be serious never entered Mr. Harrington's head. Such things simply didn't happen. So he went out into the dark streets to get his washing. But the patrols of irresponsible soldiers and revolutionaries roaming the streets were intent on other things than Mr. Harrington and his laundry. The next morning anxious friends found Mr. Harrington sprawled in a gutter, riddled with bullets, a futile and pathetic package of laundry still grasped in his cold hand. A few of the Americans in Europe for the summer holidays seem to have a little of Mr. Harrington's spirit. They resent that Europe should interrupt their holidays with a mere war, and they do not propose to be bothered by it And when ships are sent to bring them home, there are some to complain that the ships did not rile s'moothly in a storm, and that cabin accommodations and service were pretty poor. The State Department has now announced officially, that "each American citizen in belligerent countries desiring to come back has had an opportunity to return." Ambassador Kennedy has twice warned Americans in England to go home unless their business was urgent and necessary. Six weeks of actual war have followed at least two weeks of urgent crisis. Yet ships returning from Europe come in half-loaded. There is a war going on in Europe. Europeans arc serious about it, even if a few America^ seem not to be. Will the time come when the United States is asked to go to war to defend the rights of Americans summer trippers to travel through war zones in staterooms with private bath? Harvard's pessimistic professor, Earnest A. Hooton, is out with another caustic picture of the human race. 'Twilight of Man" (Putnam: S3). Likely you will not put it down until the 1st punchy page, but you will get scarce comfort from it. For you and 1, says Hooton, are slipping apeward again, becoming vassals of the tools we used to raise ourselves to civilization, endangering our best institutions such as democracy. Just a jot of the professor's fears are excerpted here. The mechanical inventions of a few- clever men have made it possible for millions to live comfortably and luxuriously without even understanding the machnes which produce them. The control of nature achieved by the cerebration of a few active minds has created delusions of grandeur in the otise brains f cvmtlesss jnnms. Others, even more numerous, huvo been dulled and crazed by the monotonous repetition oC musclar movements which they must perform incessantly as human adjuncts to machine production. Worst of all. the natural forces which have been harnessed to do the will of man can be utilibed for the desstruction of human culture and human beings much more effectively than for their benefit. A nation possessed of a somewhat within the space of two generations. • ' "The More You Tell the Quicker You Sell" • * You Can Talk to Only One Man • o Want Ads Talk to Thousand* SELL-RENT BUY OR SWAP Ait Want Ads cash in advance Not taken over the Phone One tima— ">3 word, minimum 30c Three tlmes-3Mic word, minimum 5«c Six times-fic word, minimum 9Cc .One month-ISc word, minimum I2.7U Rates are for continuous insertions only.

It was warmer than usual that night. Joan, deeply involved in some notes, glanced at the clock. It was 10:45. It was Rhodes this and Rhodes and before the- game ended K'.nh had scored twice and passed It wouldn't do much good argue. She fled upstairs, slammed the door and looked at the clock. It was still 10:45. The clock had stopped. •Take it easy," said Marianne. "What's up?" Joan told her and Marianne slammed down her book. "They'll never believe us," said Marianne. * "You're telling me." * * * S HE bumped into Carol Reid next morning in front of Barnard Hall at 10. "Just the person I wanted to see," Carol said.

"Marianne told me what happened last night, Joan. And I believe it." "Thanks—but they don't." "No, they don't. And that's why I want to talk to you." "Go ahead—straight from the shoulder."

"Get much done?" "Enough," Bonnie Harris replied laconically, and then glancing at her wrist watch: "Rules just don't mean a thing to some people," she remarked significantly. "Meaning what?" Joan's tone was sharp. "I suppose you've never heard of the 11 o'clock no-delivery rule." "It's just 11," Joan flared. "Take another look," Bonnie returned tartly. "We left the library at 11.
