America Still Has Its Promises . , Thirty years ago, Herbert Croly wrote a book which he called "The promise of American Life." Croly couldn't foresee such events as the First ..World war and its hangover, the 1929 depression and the Second World war. But even in that era. dimmed now by three great catastrophes, the author found the need not only for the preservation of democracy, but for conscious political effort directed toward such salvation. Croly was more or less a pioneer in articulating the spirit that is dominant in America today. He believed in the free exercise of liberal thought, and to this end he founded a magazine in 1914. Since then. The New Republic has been generally recognized as one of the foremost organs of liberal thinking. It is read'by;people with a wide variety of political philosophies not because they happen to agree with everything its writers say but because here, at least, are presented problems that must be dealt with. On its twenty-fifth anniversary. The New Republic takes time out to cast a ipirrqr back to the First World war and to project on the future the image that Questions on Page One 1. Truy.

Liberal leaders in nearly every i nervous dread, aggravated by porten- . 7-, x M2 ft. corner lot serviced with fieltf of American life have contributed their views on the America of tc- ! tous morrow. War always blocks a clear view of the future. There is a tendency not to look too far ahead, not only because everything is confused but because there is some'doubt whether there will ever be a future. But the wri'ors in The New Republic have boldly accepted the premise of America's tomorrom and jiave reiterated the need for remembering that war in Europe should not distract citizens in the United States from problems at home. If there is any one thing in which all of the writers have faith, it 'is the theory that modern society needs intense planning. Vast enterprises are accepted as part of the American system. There is no attempt to tear them down. But there is a general subscription to the theory that only through sound planning and direction can society get its money's worth. That goes for industry, labor, education, agriculture and every other intgral par,t of American life. The New Deal has planned, and you like it or you don't. But even if you don't that will scarcely upset your faith in the necessity for an integrated American life. Every phase of modern life in this country has become interdependent with every other aspect of life. Education can't be divorced from political thought any more than agriculture's problems can be considered independently of labor's, hether the planning may be clone by the Democrats or the Republicans or by any other dominant political party, the almost imperative need for a predirected social structure still exists.

This is the story of the life and times of Warren G. Harding. It offers nothing particularly new but but it is an important porU'ait of the fair-weather President who got caught in a twister. It seems dispassionate gives you a whining, futile, tragic Harding, The '"mystery" of his death is examined in this brief excerpt: Scandal, as it had clouded Warren G.Harding's life, haunted his death.

Tommy ihrk4:ed and da.--.hed toward them. "No time £or tali: now," Dan howled happily. "Gotta get pressed." . He hurried toward the tunnel leading to the dressing room;, suddenly stopped and ran back Joan. He grasped her shoulders, his eyes sparkling. "This'll have to do until k.tcr." He kissed her hastily and dashed oft again. Tommy howled and threw his arms around Joan. He shrieked in her ear but she hardly noticed. Her eyes swam with happiness as she watched Dan disappear, into Jhe tunnel. "Hey, snap out of it . . . wake up!" Tommy pleaded. ''What ...'! y/here . .. ? C'rnon, tell me something or I'll pass out!" told him as much as she had there been such a ! scene in the Tc-ch dressing the; room.

The first few exchanges of downs indicated what was to come. Theirs was to be a defensive battle. They had to stop Forsi and McCarroll and wait 1'or a break of their own.
