The Allies Must Discard Gloves Again the German high command, using its very clt'cclivo "blitzkrieg" tactics, moves in to "protect" the neutrality of neutrals—this time Belgium, Holland and little 'Luxembourg. Again the Nazis got the jump on the Allies, because (hey do not hesitate to stoop to the underhand methods nccos- . sar'y lo make a "blitzkrieg" so effective. The German claim again is that secret proof in possession of high ot'ti- eia's shows that the Allies planned themselves to invade neutral countries and that Germany wsis merely heating them to the. punch. Of course this charge was proven utterly false in Ihc Nazi invasion of Denmark and Norway because of the pitifully weak effort of Ihe Allies to force the Germans out of Norway. Had they really hcctt planning an invasion the Germans could never have obtained the advantage they did, all military slnitegisls agree. But the Gorman practice of swooping suddenly upon neutrals without so much as one word of warning is most convincing proof of the type of game the Nazis play. It appears from here that the Allios arc going to have to do .sonic "forcing" of their own if they arc (o give Germany some anxious moments. In other words they're gohur to have to mecl Germany al the hitter's gitme. In a life and death si niggle with an .unscrupulous enemy there's-no time to deal in diplomatic overtures, especially when such a course iis entire foreign to the enemy's idea of how to fight. We say that if Britain and France sue an opportunity (o attack Germany at a weak poml they should db so and, if necessary, apologize' later. Germany definitely seems to prefer Dial method of warfare and a taste of lier own medicine may he needed, '"- Recogi : Of Wind And Dnst ize The Danger If you're inclined ;i little toward -smug, satisfaction over (he fertility of our own alluvial section when you read of dvist storms in the Oklahoma or Kansas areas that, were once prosperous farming regions your self-complacency will probably receive a jolt if yon turn to the Farm Pago today. Wind ami sand arc making some pretty definite inroads in western Mississippi county as story and pictures on the I'Vm Page reveal. Wo do not intend ( 0 leave the im- OUT OUR WAY prcssion that Mississippi county will shortly become R wind-blown wasteland. But we do believe that certain precautionary measures arc in order. The fence row drift pictured hardly compares in any way with pichires of drifts in the dust bowl areas. But it does afVord enough reflection to compel some thoughtful observation. As forests are cleared away and the ground is more intensively cultivated the winds obtain a better path and more loose dirt to carry alonjj. The government had made line progress in recent years in effort to check spread ol" dust howl areas. As disclosed on the Farm Page, efforts are already underway in Oils county lo forestall any decisive damage. But it takes an alert and awakened interest lo keep and expand the program to counteract .such a condition. After all, Mother Nature, lavish in her generosity, is also relentless in her destruction. Independent:? and Interests Isn't it possible that thi.s whole business of foreign trade is working around to I his: Foreign tradu i,s good which brings in articles which make life richer and more varied for the importing countries—foreign trade is bad in basic necessities which make a country's very existence dependent oil t r a (I e routes controlled by others. Unless, ol' course, thoso trade routes could be internationally guaranteed. What brings this to mind is thiit Goodrich engineers have been quoted as .saying that a year of research and (he price of (ivc battleships coulcl maltu the United States independent of plantation rubber. That means independent of much of those "interests" in the l''ar East that are so often trotted out as a reason for "strong naval policies" in the Asiatic I'acilic area. In other words: a nation might go lo war for iron ore or rubber—il won't go to war for papaya juice or harmonicas. New Horror Of War Hitler coiU|ticrcd Poland in weeks, He conquered Norway in two. Nobody ciuesUons that, by making his people fake gim.s instead of butter for seven years he lias treated a IG-cylinder streamlined military machine. Knt tomiucrors arc never .satisfied- Now the N'a/.is are going to create German stylos. "Forces 1mvc arisen in the mode industry," says a German announcement, "capable of creating German things witli a German character." It is easy to guess what those forces were and what the resulting modes will lie. It is just possible (hat Danes, Norwegians, Austrian* and G/.echs who submitted <|iiiclly to German military domination will rush into screaming revolt when German styles with the ofli- tial Na-/.i' Parly label tome streaming over the border.' We read of whcul surpluses, but if every child in j\mericii hart a wholesome .sandwich for luncn every diiy, there would be no wheat .surulux. —Mnyor la Gnimlin of New York. * * * We arc for prohitmiiij: not only liquor, but, all evil—Hoyjr W.

CHAPTER XIII CHEKRY awoke with a slart next morning. She sat up in lied, I/linked her eyes. It was full daylight—must bo at least 7 o'clock, ;ir,d she should have been at the stable by 5. She must get to the track— without delay. She swung her feel around to blue slippers waiting by the bedside. Then she jumped at the sound of sharp rapping on the door. i "Who's there?" she called, f hrow- igu a quilted robe about herself. "It's Ted—me—I!" "Come right in!" The school teacher, fully dressed, was cheer itself. "The Major said you must he taking what he calls a nap of sleep—lie's gone lo the track. And I thought thai—well, here, Uilic it, Sherry." She thrust a slie;)f of bills into Sherry's hand. The latter looked at them, with v/idening eyes. Seven 5100 bank notes. The robe dropped from Sherry's shoulders. She stepped forward impulsively, threw her arms around the teacher's angular frame. "You're a honey—you're a sweetheart—but I can't take it— and I don't need it." She tried to force the money back into Ted's hand. Ted saw that Sherry meant it. She said: "I'll take it back on one condition—you promise me that it Pepper Boy doesn't win, you will lake this loan." "I promise—lhat if Pepper Boy doesn't win, I'll lake the loan, and. give you a piece of Pepper Boy to boot!" Sherry smiled. * * * CHKRKY was the first owner in the paddock that afternoon for Hie second race—the Derby Trial, it was being called. Not a horse had been scratched; ten fast colls would fight, il out, each inch of the mile ami 70 yards. She wanted to see that every detail was perfect before her Pepper Boy went lo the posl. "You know this coll, Madden— get him n!T smartly, make no mis- lakes, and win." Madden nodded. He said: "Coin lo lie a hoss-racc, ci'cry foot of the way. That Castanels, the brown 'un, is speedy; and that Monitor—" Madden frowned "lie's the baby to watch. But 1 don't think so' much of that gen'l'man steeplechase guy. This Here's on the flat." ' "That Mr. Grant you speaking of?" The- cmesiion was asked by Willie Bond, who had bustled up to the stall. "You'll be glad lo licar this," lie chuckled to Sherry, "Sliep Grant's four pounds overweight. Couldn't pull it down. He rides at 124 pounds—against 120 pounds on the other entries." "I told him he was a steeplechase rider," Sherry^said. "What do you scale at, Madden?" The little fellow grinned: "Not more'n 104—winter and summer. 1 made exact weight for this by my valet puttin' 1C pounds o' lead in that lead-pad." He indicated pad beneath Pepper Boy's saddle. At that moment the bugle blew, calling the field lo Ihe post. "Excuse me, my dear—business lo attend to," Willie Bond said, and dashed off toward the grandstand. "Well, I like that!" Sherry v/as saying to herself when a familiar voice spoke at her elbow: "Come on and watch this one with me." * * » IT was Paul Whurlon. Sherry ^ had so much on her mind that she forgot lo he distant. "Why, Paul—where've you been keeping yourself?" She was really glad lo see him. "Might you Ihc same," lie smiled. "Been busy—as you've been; but come on—they'll be at Ihe post in a minute," . A roar went up from watching thousands as Ihc field leaped forward in a perfect start. "Say!" Paul Wharton exclaimed, "look at your coll—he's improved!" Pepper Boy, breaking from the extreme outside, was shooting ahead—Madden was trying to cut a long diagonal line across the field—trying to get to the rail at the head of the turn. "But look there!" Wharlon shouted again, "That Shep's not bad, is he? Watch him!" Shep Grant was hustling his bay. Monitor, to the front on Ihc rail—he had blocked (lie fast-moving brown, Castanets, who had tried to take it. Now, as they reached the first turn, the field was splil into two divisions. Three horses in the first group: Shcp Grant with Monitor on the rail; Farwclt on Castanets next lo him; and Madden running alongside on Pepper Boy Seven horses were grouped behind. "Too bad Madden couldn't ge' the rail. Ha's dropping bacli." So he was. "The horse is in stride—Madden's giving him a breather," Sherry said. "Maybe," Wharton muttered. 'But I don't like (lie way Grant is taking that nag of his to the front —Boy!—He's a length ahead as they start down the back stretch." "He's burning his colt up," said jhcrry—and she hoped it was true. "Maybe," Wharton muttered again. "I'm not crazy about Grant —you know it; but just the same he's a darn good judge of pace." "He's four pounds overweight," Sherry said, as she noted that Pepper Boy was third—and running easily—at the half-mile. 'Is he?" Wharlou looked at her a minute. "Then he's got an advantage over all the rest of you " "How so?" "All the other jockeys are very light boys—and their saddle-pads arc filled with lead. Thai's dead weight—and mighty heavy. Shep is all live weight." 'What of il?" she snapped. "There's Madden going into contention—now." * « t r rilE hoy was starling his run A with Pepper Boy. He liflcd his reins at the three-eights pole, as they went into the far turn. Sherry knew lie was clucking to Pepper Boy—she saw her game little colt spring forward—Madden was shooting into a space between Castanels and the rail! Pepper Boy Sot the rail—was alongside Cas- tanels—was drawing away from Castanets—was shooting at a space between Monitor and the rail, ahead. "Not Ibis lime!" Wharton whistled. "Madden almost got in that opening—but Shep has an eye in the back of his head. See, he's drawn close to the rail himself." So he had. But Madden was laking Pepper Boy out—now they were straightening down tiic home strelcli: Monitor in front by a length—Pepper Boy second—and Ihe brown, Castanets, coming up fast on Pepper Boy's flanks. Behind them thundered seven other horses—vainly trying to catch up. "Now he's coming—in the last furlong!" Sherry yelled. Madden had, lashed out with his baf. Pepper Boy leaped forward. His nose was now at Monitor's neck; but Castanels surged forward on Ihe outside—even with Pepper Boy. The three colls—so close together that a handkerchief could have almost covered thorn—swept down to the wire together. Now they were head and head, nose and nose— They flashed under the wire.
