Civilization May Sneak Through Again During the course of the last war. writers and orators re-discovered a that was not only filed with lurid implications but bounced pleasingly along the tongue. The word was "Armageddon." and it came to be an essential part of the vocabularies of alarmists and pessimists. , Never before 1914 had a war been staged on so widespread a scale. Conflicts before had always been 'conducted along conventional lines—between two nations or two factions within a nation over some such orthodox matter as boundaries, colonies, freedom of the seas or the prestige of a ruler. Never before had half the world gone to bat for democracy and the other half against it Here then was Armageddon. It was not only God's great battle of good against the forces of evil, but it was the war that could eliminate either all future wars or civilization itself. Here was the master war of them all. with new-fangled flying machines that could wipe out cities as men swat flies and guns that could fire shells into towns 60 miles away. Civilization could not jwtsibly survive that mighty onslaught. For 21 years after the 1918 Armistice. Armageddon was forgotten by all but elassical scholars. Civilization, through some inexplicable miracle, had not Lscn wiped out. And wars had not been ended. The euphonistic word was tracked away in mothballs along with such curios as A. E. P. uniforms and bustles. Then came 1939. Bustles came back and so did Armageddon. Here it was great decisive battle of all time. This was the war that would •grind the earth into a mass of lifeless pulp. Columnists built their sermons around the resurrected word. On one day. two writers climaxed their i es- sages with nearly identical sentences, both involving "Armageddon" and another, columnist used the word so often that it began to sound like the title .of a popular song. During the past two months, speakers and Writers have gradually been laying off. Either they began to tire of the word or they realized that maybe this wasn't quite Judgement Day. Perhaps they decided civilization, having managed to squeeze through the last assault, might get through this one. If the war abroad is ever unleashed in' all its fury, folks all over the world will probably have a pretty rough time of it. Those %vho aren't directly in ,the line of fire are going to feel the repercussions in their economic and political life. War is never very pretty. "Yet, somehow, civilization will probably survive. It may not be quite the same as we know it now. Modes of living may be adjusted to meet new con- ditions/.md Europe may get its face lifted again.^ButTife will not be summarily wiped off the planet. The United States may as well plan on that. We may as well look beyond the yet undefinable limit? of the present war and project our program for peaceful existence into a future period, even though it does look a little vague to us ; now. .-•'• Po/Mcal Announcement the Stor Is authorized to nn- «0iincc Ihe following candidates subject to Ihc notion of the Demn- crntlf city primary election Tuesday, November 28, 1939: For City Attorney E.

Nick was terrified—alternately begging and threatening. There was no fear in the dark eyes of the girl. She met Captain Dawson's stare defiantly as she entered the room, and he realized that bluff and threats would never break down her will. As he studied her, Dawson compared her with Helen Benthorne. Where Helen Benthorne was soft, the pampered daughter of society, this girl was hard—not unpleasantly so—but because life had not been generous to her. Her hands were not soft, nor faultlessly manicured. Her dress was simple, .serviceable, only moderately attractive. Here was a girl, Dawson realized, who worked for all she had, who had never known luxuries. "She was just leaving the apartment when I got there," Flynn explained. ''Grips' packed and all. But she won't say where she was going or why. She won't say anything, Captain. Maybe you can make her talk." •-- * * "VOUR luck is holding, Flynn," Dawson laughed, when Flynn !:ad recounted the story of his discovery of Nick Smith. ''You're the only man on the force who ran go to sleep and wake up with his prisoner in his hands. t "Now here is something else tot you—find out all you can about Benthorne. AJJ soon as the brokerage offices open, start tracing his business operations, back to his first purchase of stock. Get all the help you need. We've got to find out some more about Ben- thorne and this 'Big Red' he mentions in the note. See what you John Douglas there was no merriment in her ''Just becau.se your piitrol- man is clumsy is no fault of mine. I think the driver's loot .slipped off the clutch pedal; then, when we saw the officer trying lo draw his gun, we hurried away, ['m sure Mr. Douglas was not far the girl. But Ara had remained us sphinx-like us ever. Dawson glanced around the table. He sat at Mrs. Benthorne's right, directly across from a vacant chair. Alston was still asleep. Ara sut beside him, and Nick Smith next to her. The girl's food was practically untouched. Smith's appetite seemed to have vanished, too. Only Joey di Torio, across the table, und Krone, seemed to be enjoying the meal. How about Ara? If Dawson could have known fear, he would have been afraid of the girl. She was almost loo calm, too quiet. Was all this part of her plan? Not finding an answer, Dawson attacked his ham and eggs. :'f :'.: ;',i JOHN DOUGLAS pounded hard " on the Benthorne front "door.

'T—-I don't know—I'll ask Captain Dawson," Jameson began. '•A young girl, with dark hair,, dark eyes. Did a policeman bring her here?" Douglas shouted. "Out of my way—I'll see for myself!" He hurried toward the study. "You'll find all of them in the dining room, to your left, at the end of the hall," Jameson ventured. Douglas ran past the study, without a glanc.-;, to the dining room door. "Aral' -way.
