National Music Week National Music Week seems to have for its primary purpose an effort to re-acquaint the public with line music. It could hardly be .said that America is not music conscious considering the popularity of various types of music, particularly the lighter type, which to many, however, is not really music but more or less sacrilege upon the good name of music itself. Reawakening of interest in line music is a laudable undertaking. The ladies of the local committee deserve commendation for their efforts. Music Week is a celebration in honor of music. II is a spontaneous partici- palion, through performance or listening, in one of the most 'Democratic of the arts. It is a drive by the friends of music to make more widespread the enjoyment of music by the general public. Music can play a powerful role in welding community spirit. When Time Means Lives When the Finns were, accepting the Russian peace settlement last March, there were some in America who couldn't sec why they did not light on. The more enthusiastic grandstand warriors on (his side of the Atlantic—usually . men nicely above any expected draft • age—wanted to see the Finnish-Russian war continued, right down to the last Finn. The British and French withdrawal from south Norway throws some light on thai past event. We can now'guess just how effective allied aid to Finland would have been, and how long it would have taken to get it on the ground. The story is that the allies had 50,000 completely-equipped men poised to lea)) off for Finland as the peace negotiations nearcd an end, and that this fully-ready force was later dissipated by sending men home to play parchcesi just before the Germans invaded Norway. That was why the British'thrust into Norway with 20,000 ill-equipped troops was the best she could do quickly, months after the Finnish aid was announced to be fully rauly.-— About the only conclusion fo be drawn from this is that the Finns, realists to the core, judged correctly just what help they might expect from the allies, especially as it was obvious that any effort to land allied forces in Scandinavia anywhere en route to Finland would have brought instant German attacks. They judged rightly lliat in spite of their gallant resistance to the OUT OUR WAY Hussian nweliiiii 1 , Uioy must lose in the long run, in Hie itljsciiec of effective Uclp from cither the Swedes, who wouldn't, or the allies, who couldn't provide it. All this shows how clearly time means lives in ;i military campaign. Your Amerk'ini jji-iinilstaiul strategist Fiiys, "Wli.'il has Knglmul been doing? The war signals have been flying «in«s Munich. The war itself dnwled for six jnonths." The .same excuse, perhaps, that the U. S. needs to explain why we have utterly failed in Hie same lime to provide the stockpiles of tin, rubber, man-, and other necc.s.sary win 1 materials whidi might be cut oil' From us if war should .spread to the Kust Indies or the Near Kasl. We have had the .same warnings. We have temporized ami tiddled with the |irol)lem, buying a little here, a little there. Hut there is no valid reason why, with two full years' warning, the United Stales, should not have gotten together emergency slocks of these materials. The plan to purchase $50,000,000 worth of Dutch tin is, of course, a step in the right direction but we arc pretty slow taking it. Jl is easy to criticixc .Hrilish "muddling through." What about our own? Philippine Iwmigraiion We hope that broad-minded people in Japan will try to understand the action of the Philippine Nalioiu'l Assembly in adopting its new quota bill. This sets annual i|iiola.s of f)00 for every nationality. < It will cut sharply into and immigration, and there have been Japanese protests against it. The bill is probably in fact ^discriminatory, because, though it treats all nationalities alike, only those whose immigration is large will be alt'ected— namely, the .Japanese and Chinese. Yet would the Japanese themselves do any less, I'accd with the same situation V Suppose, hundreds of thousands (if liussiHii immigrants were pouring into each year and had done so for many years, until Japan was faced with the chance of becoming a, country by sheer force of numbersV Surely I hey would be I lie lirst to assert the right to govern immigration into their own country as they saw lit. Surely, too, they will .see the justice of granting to a neighbor country a right they would insist on for themselves. • SO THEY SAY I really want to bcc if I like this kind ot work.

CHAPTER IX TjHVE seconds after saying "I am" fo Thcodosia Duncan Bond, Sherry snapped oul of ll>c shock of receiving another relative unannounced. "My dear! You are Uncle Horace's daughter!" "No—slepdouolitcr. He married my mother—when I was a baby. Adopted me. They're both dead now. Really, I'm no kin, Sheridan." "Call me Sherry—I'll call you Ted," Sherry spoke warmly and impulsively. This lanky, triend- less girl, looking up Ihe only near- relative in town—Sherry hadn't the heart to be other than cordial. She took the girl's arm, led her to the doorway. Thcodosia Duncan Bond was saying: "I was fioing to France—my field is higher math and physics—to work on my doctorate—but Hie war slopped that. I had applied for my leave of absence, so here 1 am—in the East for a year—but really, not being kin to^.ou—" The girl stopped ;il (he- doorway with genuine reluctance, "I mustn't intrude on you—mustn't take up your time—" "Bosh! You come right in!" * * * "VES, Ted would have tea. During the second cup she said: "I'm going lo get a little place. I brought all my furnishings, enough to camp out in New York, you know. I've- heard so much aboul those ducky Greenwich Village apartments." "They were ducky years ago— merely high-priced now. Look here," Sherry was thinking fast, "tetl you what I'll do. How would you like to hnve Ihis apartment furnished, at what it costs me? Plenty of room for your stuff; you could take in n. fellow-student to share expenses. Two of you could live nicely here, on little. It's paid up to the first." "Cut where are you going, Sheridan?" "Just call me Sherry. I'm going to Louisville-Mor the Derby. My colt's nominated. Then I'll ship him from track to track; may not be back for a year." "Sherry?" Tlie girl from the West spoke the name as a child would—a child seeking a great favor, Sherr> stopped speaking. The plain girl, caned forward, pleadingly: "Sherry—this is awful—my ask- ng it—we are almost strangers— but please, Sherry—I'll pay my way—let me go racing with you!" * * * ffOR a moment Sherry sat mule. Then, "Why—why—you—but t's such a different world!" "I rode broncs in Wyoming," the jirl said with more confidence. 'I'm teaching only—because— well, it's sure money every month. "I'll pay my way, if you'll let me go—and work for you free. I could keep your books—" "Uncle Willie does thai." "Uncle Willie?" "William Bond, father's brother." "Oh, .1 remember heaving aboul Kim. He's not so much older than I ahi!" "He looks centuries older!" The school teacher paused. Her hands brushed her hair nervously before she spoke again. "Sherry, I want to get into the swim o£ life—to forget teaching for at least a year." TT was n strong and purposeful Ted Bond speaking, nol a diffident teacher from (he hills. Sherry stepped to a bridge lamp —she could nol see her guest's face plainly; shadows of late afternoon lay heavy in the room. For a moment her hand lingered on the switch. Ted Bond sot lo her feet, walked back and forth. "Yes, I know malhemalics, but I don't know what adds up to human living." A note of longing came into her tones. "I want to know life—the real thing—before I go back to another six years of teaching." Sherry's hand pressed the light switch. She looked again at the girl who, now facing her, was saying: "I won't cost you a penny—I'll pay my own way—I'll help out— do anything you waul." Then she look a slcp nearer, leaned over the back of a chair, said intently. "Hasn't it occurred to you, Sherry, thai you actually need me? And for a very definite reason?" "What do you mean?" Sherry asked slowly. "Sherry, you're the most gorgeous girl I've ever seen. Your eyes are the most heavenly blue, your hair the shade of a burnished saddle— a figure that's just a dream. And you "—-Ted Bond stood very straight— "—you're going into a lough world in competition with men." "Well!" Sherry managed lo say. "So what?" "You are all alone. Uncle Willie doesn't count. If vou were as plain as—as I am, Sherry—" "But you're not plain—you arc rorgcously alive!" Sherry an- iwered indignantly. The teacher smiled. "Yes—but I am. A city hair-do may help— naybe," she added with a grin, 'but Sherry, you need a chaperon. If you were an ugly duckling, you could traipse around the country, sleep in a stall next to the horse, but you are what Ihe world calls lady. You can't spend (he night on a pile of hay—and you can't stop at hotels alone—like I can." "Oh, bosh!" The teacher went on, "You can do it, and keep face in the racing world. But you'll lose caste in your social sphere, and you know it. [I'd be different if you were the lomboy type; but you are a (born lady," she finished with an admiring smile. MOW it was Sherry who walked the floor. She turned quickly on Ted Duncan -Bond. "I'm—I'm a fool, I guess. Shouldn't do it— probably mess you up for life— but you're asking for it. And there's something about you I like." Shcrry^miled at her. "I like the way you go straight to (he point— go after the things you want in life." "You are going to let me go with you, Sherry!" Sherry chuckled. "You're going lo learn aboul life, my lamb." The front bell rang. Shorry pressed the release button. "Thai," she spoke firmly, "will be William Bond in from Ihe track—and he's late." "Oh!" the teacher seemed to retreat into faashfulncss. "Sherry, has he a title? Could I call him 'Captain'? Your uncle Horace liked for me to call him 'Colonel'." "Well," Sherry watched her with interest, "most men do like swanky military lilies. Lei's promote Willie, call him 'Major.' How's thai?" "Great!" ' In (hat moment a bond of Intimacy was welded — females against the male! Sherry went lo Ihe door, placed hand on the knob; then threw her head back,laughed. "What's funny?" a puzzled Ted asked. "Giving him a tille?" "Oh, no!" Sherry answered, "Laughing at myself—at my Lone Tree Stable. I've an entourage of—let's sec: you, Uncle Willie, Sam, the colored groom, a jockey on race days, myself and"—she began laughing again—"I've only got one horse! He'd'better run fast—or we'll starve!"
