Or, if that is too optimistic a statement, it is at least feeling better than it was a liltle while ago. Official figures compiled in Washington show that during the lirsl six months of 1934 the United States ex- porletl just a little more than a billion dollars' worth of (roods— a higher rate than that shown by either IBM or 19H2. If things keep on al (his rate, exports for the year will run above the ?2,000,000,000 mark, which they haven't touched since 1981. Lest wu grow too jubilant, it might be well to point out that v/e nre .still far below Ihe 102!) high-water mark, when we exported goods worth more than 55,000,000,000.

A passenger on this steamer was a liroman mimed Kcmpf. Testifying at the inquiry, Mr. Kcmpf told how he went overboard to escape the llanies, accompanied by two girls. They drilled away from the ship, and one of the girls asked him, "Well, big boy, do you think we'll make it?" And Jlr. Kempf added, 'aI the inquiry: "And if that girl is still alive 1 hope she will drop me a postcard right away. She was one swell redhead." There is something so refreshingly human about this story—this undaunted wisecrack, in. the very shadow of death—that one is inclined lo agree, offhand, wilh the tircmnn in bis estimate ol' the red-head.'s hope lie gets his postcard—and, for that mailer, a nice date for himself. mw/m I believe thnl If ' n mini In public pcniillji. liliiiself to be partisan to any one group he loses his usefulness as a public servant. —Donald R.
