In reality, it's the Monroe Doctrine applied to the north, as well as to the south. Reluctant as Americans are to get mixed up in anyone's quarrel, there can hardly be the shadow of a doubt that under any and all circumstances they would use their utmost strength to defend the dominion against outside attack. That doesiiot, of course, mean that Uncle Sam is pledged to throw troops and fleets overseas the next time Canada be- ccmes involved in a British war on the continent of Europe. It simply recognizes a perfectly obvious fact—namely, that American security against outside attack requires that rredatory powers be kept from-getting a foothold in the land to the north of the border. By defending Canada against attack, Uncle Sam would simply be defending himself. * * * •MOW when we have said all there is to say about hands ).N Across the border, good neighbors, international friendship, and .so on, it is pretty clear that this community of interest between the dominion and the republic is at bottom a highly practical affair. Canada and the United States get along well together because it is to their own best interests to do so. They are good customers and good markets for each other. And when you face that fact squarely, you are forced to wonder if the same thing might not be true of a good many other nations—nations which right now are glaring at one another with their hands on their pistol butts, ready to fight at the drop of a hat. * + * "THERE is nothing unique about Canada and the United 1. States. They live side by side, they do business with each other, and they nrosper thereby. If that is true of them, why wouldn't it also be true of France and Germany, of Germany and Czechoslovakia, of Italy and Jugoslavia—or, indeed, of any other pair of nations you could possibly name ? The answer is pretty obvious. It would be true—if the nations involved would only give it a trial. If there were a little less bristling and saber-rattling and a little more honest effort to do business together, the Canadian-American harmony could be duplicated on all international borders. Must the world live through another great war before that fact dawns on it? wait for the school bell.

An aerial circus that - i have considerably more than entertainment value is suggested bv the show some armv bombers put on the other clay . for the first class at West Point. Planes flying at 12.000 feet, almost invisible, dropped five and a half tons of TNT on a marsh near Langlev Field in "15 minutes. That was a great deal more than lit in the city of London during the entire World war. The spectators watched the show from a distance of more than a mile. The ground shook under their feet. Thev watched other planes follow that five and a half tons of TNT with a shower of licrhter bombs that finished the business of tearing p, quarter mile of ground to pieces. Then fighting nlanes came down machine gunning, and more came down laying poison gas. and more with tracer bullets that set the earth afire over hundreds of acres. The West Point boys and their officers and the officers' wives and children watched the show wind up in a flaming, smoke-billowing hell on earth. "Few neople in this country have seen bornbs explode," fommented the reporter who wrote the story of the show. More people need to. A bomb-laden aerial circus could scarcely bo enualled as a measure to strengthen the average citizen's resolve to stay out of war. By UK.

CHAPTEH V A MAN leaped from the car, a •"• powerfully-built f e 1 lo w in form-fitting {.'ray tweeds. As he started toward the barn the crowd gave way. He- marched straight to the auctioneer. Linda Gordon gave a start. "Monte Hill!" she exclaimed to her uncle. He turned a puzzled face toward her. "Friend of mine, won the Juvenile Stakes last week," she explained quickly, then stepped forward. The auctioneer beamed expansively. "Just in the nick of time, my good friend." From Belmont! This man spelt money. "Sale just starting—to the highest bidder—the Rndford colts. Cash on the barrel-head, and no reasonable bid refused. Now I offer—" Again his voice went into singsong: Monte Hill was at her side in three long steps. "Hello, Linda!" He seized her hands, spoke quickly: "Never mind — I'll bid him in." "But I — I want him myself!" she exclaimed, freeing her hands, as the auctioneer cried for more bids. "Forget it! Women and racing —don't mix." Hill told her. "I'll get him." He whirled around. "What was that last bid, Mr. Auctioneer?" "I'm ashamed to tell you, sir. It was a mensley little two hundred and fifty — " "Make it $500!" Hill called with nonchalance. "I'm bid five hundred for Golden Toy. We've just been joking so far—all in good fun," the auctioneer resumed. While he talked young Donald was circling the crowd till he reached Linda's side. She had stepped away from Hill. "I'm bid five hundred for Golden Toy; do I hear the thou"Golden Toy, 2 years old, by [ sand?" the auctioneer sing-songed.

Linda had wanted to go to Monte's side, but things were moving too fast. She'd bid—then she'd catch his eye. "One hundred dollars!" She shouted the offer. The auctioneer's jaw dropped. He turned — all turned — and looked at Linda. The auctioneer seemed hard put to find words a the bid was in- vitamin B consists of at least two different substances, which were named Bl and B2 and later called Bl and G. Thes:e two factors were said specifically to be associated with the presence of a condition called polyneuritis and another condition called pe'legra. Now it is known that vitamin B has many different parts. The first, called Bl, is the anti-beriberi vitamin that prevents beriberi in man and poly- neuritis in animals. Another part is known as riboflavin, a compound necessary for growth in animals and believed to be associated with the oxidation-reduction system of living cells. It has been found that there is another factor which is effective in the treatment of pellagra in man and black tongue in dog—a factor which is necessary for rapid gains in v.x-ight and the normal nutrition of pigeons. A vitamin tentatively called B4 prevents a form of specific paralysis in rats and chickens. A portion called B5 is necessary to maintain weight in pigeons.

How's that?' Linda made her decision in a split second. "I've six hundred. I'll take you if my uncle trains him," she nodded to Uncle Sandy, "and gets one-third of his wins, and one-third if we sell." Mr. Jenkins, the auctioneer, was getting anxious. "Come, folks, come—this is a horse sale! I'm bid five hundred—" Donald's face sobered as he heard Linda's terms. He said: "You're a keen business girl, but you're on. We've got eleven-fifty between us; you make the bids, for luck." She nodded with a slight lowering of eyebrows. Said softly: "Move away—so they won't get on." He shrugged his shoulders, stepped off, as though he were through. * * * ]y[R. JENKINS was calling 1TJ - "Offered five hundred—who says the thousand?" Linda called, "Six hundred!" "Seven-fifty," from Hill. He came across the space to her "Look here, Linda; you can't bid against me—" "I can't?" She raised a hand, "Eight hundred!" "Eight hundred—do I hear th« thousand?' "Say, Linda," Hill protested, "we're friends!" "And this is a Kentucky horse- deal, my lad. I'm buying this horse. Going to run him up till the cows come home," She grinned at him. Monte Hill turned from her. Swore under his breath. "I bid—" the circling crowd grew tensely quiet. They were going to hear a real bid, now. Hill gazed at the colt speculatively; tugged at his coat again; a sign that he was intensely earnest. He frowned at Donald, who was calmly smoking, as though his race were run. Hill turned, glanced at Linda Gordon. Smiled at her. She didn't like his smile. He was too much the conquering male— "Better make it a good one," she warned, "I'll run you up the flagpole." Rough encouragement from the crowd: "You tell it to him, lady." "That's Miss Gordon—she knows how to handle 'em." "Run him up, Miss Gordon!" Monte Hill put his hands on hips, swung around, inspected the crowd with contempt in his eyes. "If any of you gentlemen wish to bid, don't iet me deter you—" "Listen to him, trying to high- hat us!" "No? No one wishes to bid against me? Right sure?" His eyes swept everyone, his hands dropped to his sides. "Then, since I am in Kentucky, where U. S. money is legal—I bid"—he hesitated, faced the auctioneer as he flipped a silk handkerchief from a pocket—"I bid three thousand five hundred dollars." He named the figure with a casual air. The tension broke. The crowd began ohing and ahing; then shouts went up: "Gosh, that's the way to bid!" "That fellow's got nerve, he has!" Hill nodded his head—slightly. Smiled sardonically at the change in sentiment. "I'm offered three thousand five hundred—make it five thousand?" Mr. Jenkins was looking at Linda —but not hopefully. He beat his hands together, began sing-songing: "Offered thirty-five hundred —thirty-five hundred—make it five thousand—five thousand—going at thirty-five hundred—going —going—say five thousand, Miss? No? Say five thousand, Mr. Donald? No? Then"—he raised his hands high—"last call—going— going—gone!" Smacked his hands. "Sold!
