Peace Parley Will Have Tough Assignment No international commission ever had a problem .so intricate and confused:: as the peace conference will have when war finally ends in Europe. Theirs will not be mere questions of dividing the spoils, shifting boundaries, placing the blame. Whole peoples have beenjuggled around central Europe. Some have been driven out of their homelands, forced to seek refuge elsewhere on the continent or on another part of the globe. Others have swept into their domain, taken over tlie land, moved into their jobs. Dictators have 'mixed up Europe's population to a point where logical solution of the problems fomented will be a gargantuan, if not an impossible, chore for peace conferees. Long before war began, Jews were being driven out of Germany in great 'droves. Then, in line with the policy of his axis-brother. Mussolini finally agreed to the exile of all Jews who had not been in Italy lx?forv I'.ll!). The repatriation of Germans from the Baltic stales is tinder way while Na/.i leader 1 ! plan the exchange of minorities with Jugoslavia. Russia has now decided to move Poles to her Don river coal areas from eorufuered Polish regions. There will not be room in Poland for both the Ku-iians and the Poles. The Poles will have to get out. Germany too. plans to t'so her half of Poland for settling her own people. Jews are to be driven out: but it is apparent that a number of non-Jewish Poles will also IM? forced to I<wa simply because there isn't room enough for everyone. In co-operation with Germany. Italy recently announced that 200.000 citizens or the Tyrol, granted to Italy after the first World war. will be compelled to seek new homes in German territory. These people have lived in the Tyrol for the past 600 years. They are simple, home-loving people—rooted to the soil. not accustomed to the vicissitudes of empires. The Tyrolese. before the World war, were part of Austria. Essentially, they are similar to the Swiss. During the past two decades, all of Mussolini's efforts to Italianize the Tyrolese have met with notable failure. These simple folks have clung tenaciously to their own customs, their own language. Now they are to be "repatriated"—which means, in less pretentious language, they will be kicked out. Will the peace that 'must finally come be no more conclusive than was the Versailles treaty? Can any settlement that accepts the turmoil of population as an irrevocable fact accomplished permanent security? The attitude of the extreme pessimist— that Europe's second war is paving the way for a third conflict—cannot be summarily cast aside. Even at this early stage, it is apparent that the eventual peace may be balanced even more precariously than was the peace of the past two decades. HIGHLIGHTS FROM LATEST BOOKS DehuckerUrges Neutral Course "The Deadly Parallel" by C. Hartley Grattan (Stackpole: $2) is a vivid plea for non-involvement in the European war. Grattan? author 10 years ago of one of the first "debunking" books about America and the World War, sees deadly parallels in oilr course now and then. But he believes non-participation is possible if intelligence can be made to rule. Here is a typical exposition of hte difficulties involved: Neutrality will not be easy to maintain. The first World War gave us a deep understanding of the difficulties. The, peace of developments in the second will be much faster than last time.

CHAPTER XIX *T»HEY were in the midst of din•*• ner that night when the phone rang. It Tvas for Joan. There was a look o£ bewildermen. on hei iaea \vhen she returned.. She sat dov/n and turned an accusing gaze on Elaine. For your iiiforrnation," she nnounced, "that was the Student Senate office . . .' calling to iell me i"vs> been named co-chairman of ir.0 'Last Week' committee. You v.'uuldivt know anything about that, would you, squirt?" Elaine squealed with delight. ".Teepers, that's sw&ll!" And then soberly, somewhat hurt. "Who, jne? Know about what?' 1 Joan was forced to laugh and the other girls around her chattered their congratulations. "You . . . you accepted, of course," Elaine inquired, just a little meekly. "Oooh, you little . . . you little ..." Joan tried to be angry but couldn't. She had to laugh. "I just about had to. Seems as though Dan had no particular desires in the matter . . . and it would have looked funny . . . r.:...l he might have felt hurt, if I mid declined. '•In-other words, you little worm . . . you framed me like a pic- lure!" "Now it's me that's being hurt," said Elaine, but she grinned. She leaned over and whimpered 3n Marianne's ear. " Webber'Jl fwoon when he finds out." * * C was practically an understatement on Elaine's part. Five seconds after a pledge had given him the message from the Senate office he was dialing Barney Hughes. "Hey, Barney," he wailed. "I resign . . . quit . . . I've been victimized or something. And Ehodes'll have my life blood!" Barney roared when Dan had explained everything to him but lie succeeded in convincinggnim he probably would come through unscathed. Nor did Keith take it with very great surprise. "Don't mind me," he tossed off diffidently. "You have my blessings it that's what you're after." Dan wondered at the attitude but made no reply. Okay, then. Might as well have a little fun put-of it. He called Joan on the phone. "Coming right over . . . unless you're busy tonight," he told her. She suddenly forgot all about the three chapters of political science she was to read that night. "Sure," she told him. "C'mon over." * * * 'T'HEY had tha music room all to themselves. "Tribune's coming down to the Senate office to take our pictures tomorrow morning" he said abruptly. "We'll have to cut histovy. Oke?" "Oke. What else?" "Nothing much. I think this ir, silly. We've just got to see that the campus is properly worked up for the rally Friday night and see to it we have enough wood to burn down the town." He shooed his hands at her. "It's all your?, chum . . . anything you say goes. I'm not fixed very well for ideas thi.s week." "Fine guy!" she flared. "Ducking out on me already." He stretched lazily. "Never in my life saw a dame who could get up on her muscle so quick." They both laughed. "Y'know, I was worried about what Keith might think about this," he began. She frowned. "What':; he got to do with it?" "Well, he—oh, nothing I guess. He didn't seem to mind much, . anyway." I "You mean . . . you asked him if it were okay with him?" "Under the circumstances I thought it the thing to do." "Wrong again," .she murmured. He looked at her queerly. * * * '"THINGS were sweeping up to a - 1 - terrific tension thai week. Five more days and then Pitt. Five more days would bring the climax to Tech's bid for an undefeated season. Playing a big-time schedule and winning the first .•••even had been a strain. Any team might crack and be forgiven. But Bill Slocum wasn't the sort to let a team crack and go to pieces. He was a master at working his boys to the perfect 'psychological pitch. Sltcum had Jong foreseen Pitt as the final |.stumbling block to an undefeated j season. And not because the | Panthers were the final game on •the schedule. He knew just what ! his club could do. So far the boys had done it. It was a typical Pitt team that would come to town Friday noon. A team perfectly drilled in fundamentals and equipped with power plays that v/ere the epil- pme of straight football. For days the sports writers had been insisting that the winner war: a virtual cinch to get the eastern bid to the Kosfe Bowl. Both teams were in good physical shape. Pitt's Hal Forrest, a dynamo in human form, and the hardest-hitting fullback in the cast, was fully recovered from a slight cold that had bothered him the week before. It was like trying to stop a five-ton truck when Hal Forrest bludgeoned his way over tackle or slammed in from close up on a spinner. And how lie could spin. Frantically, Slocum worked on a defense to stop him. And Dan Webber, hi.H hand almost completely healed after the layoff, was the key-man. "Our offense will take care of itself," Slocum predicted. "All we've got to do is shake Rhodes loo.se once—just once, that's all I ask of you guys, And then we're going to dig in and .stop that Forrest guy." # * # JT was Wednesday noon when tiie large, dark blue .sedan swung .slowly clown Main street, cruised around the business district for about an hour and then moved over onto the campus drive. Thres men were in it. Two in front, one in back. The driver was thin, dark, with a short, well- trimmed miiFtnche. His companion up front was bulky, florid of face. Hi:; c-yes v/ere small and close set. There was a dapper air to the man in buck. Even as he rode he filed already carefully manicured nail:;. A cigart-t dyngled from his lip. Along his forehead was a .••lender, curved scar that stopped just at. hi/, eye-lid. "According to her schedule," said Seal-fare, "she'll be coming out of thai building over there in"—lie glanced at u gold wrist lv.-;itch—"in exactly five minutes." 'i'lif bulky one up front grunted. "Swing around thi.s building once n'^iiin, Sam." Two o'clock classes were just letting out when they returned. Sum parked the car on the opposite side of the drive. They waited there. "Sure you can recognize her?" Scarface asked without looking up. He was .still occupied with his n;.n!. r -;. "Can't rniss," the bulky one replied. Two minutes later he stiffened sharply. "Here she comes." Scarface looked up, then, casually, indifferently, but there w;j.-; a glint in his eye. lie watched Joan Johnson rorne down the ::t"jj.. foy.'utd (lift .sidewalk. "So i hat'.; Joan Johnson, eh? Not bad . . . not bad at all!"
