The official government commission which is putting the big monument through the hoop is, to be sure, formally commemorating the 125th anniversary of the battle of Lake Erie. But'it is an observance too long delayed, for the story which begins with a battle and ends with a monument is one which cannot be told too often. The annals of the world's wars are full of stories that can be described that way, of course—stories that begin with a battle and end with a "monument. Enough pain, loss, and suffering is packed into that short compass, usually, to make the angels weep, and often enough, looking back, one is hard put to say whether the net gains was worth all it cost. But the Perry story is different. .' * * * O UT OF those frenzied two hours on Lake Erie there came something which is a priceless possession of two great nations and an ideal to inspire the whole world. In its immediate effects, of course. Perry's victory was important enough. It saved the northwest for the United States, kept the bungled war of 1812 from ending in disaster, and ended the Indian menace in the Northwest Territory. Even more important than that, however, was the fact that this great battle was followed by more than a century of peace. Shortly after the war. English nad American commissioners drew up and signed the Rush-Bagot treaty limiting armaments on the Great Lakes—the first disarmament treaty in the history of international relations. The spirit of that treaty has been kept ever since, until now it is something that'neither the United States nor Canada would conceivable give up. Now the thing to remember about it is that there was nothing in the cards to make such a peaceful relationship inevitable. The two nations might just as easily—more easily, in fact—have gone ahead in the traditional way, nourishing grudges because of the last war and laying plans for getting even in the next. But it didn't happen that way—principally because the people involved used good sense. • . + -* * A MERICAN fire-eaters stopped talking about the "conquest rl orCanada"; English imperialists gave up their old idea cf crippling the upstart republic. Instead, of hands decided to get along together in peace. And it worked. That is the great point to remember. Two virile, expanding, and ambitious peoples showed that disarmament" is practical. And there has never been a time when the world could meditate on that fact with more profit than today. A Book a Diy By true* Catto* If Plrkct! Up A t,mul of Troubhlc There is something more than n Ittle reminiscent of the grim, breath- ess supense of "The Postman Always "ttngs Twice" in Robert Du Soe's new lovcl. "The Devil Thumbs « Ride" McBride: ?2.00). Mr. Du Soe lolls about a rather tupid and bestted but fundamentally uirmlcss traveling salesman who blun- lers naturally and unwittingly into a lorrible moss—nncl doesn't, for one inie, even realize what a mess it Is. This salesman is driving up from 5an Diego to Los Angles. He gives i lift to a shifty-eyed young hitch- liker. takes a few drinks with him, ind then takes on two more hitch- likers—girls, this time. It is the salesman's idea, of course, :hal this is going to be n pleasant little trip—girls, a casual friend, a few drinks, and maybe a little party in > friends cabin along the ocean. But it happens that the man he picked up is a fugitive 'gunman who is coldly, viciously desperate; and before the evening is over the gunman has killed oiie of the girls, got half thhe cops of California on his trail—and maneuvered things so that it is the salesman wo stands to get blamed for it all. Mr. Du Soe exercises real skill in unfolding this rather unlovely yarn and in describing the way in which the horror slowly dawns on the befuddled salesman. The most telling touch of all. perhaps, comes at the end, when the salesman is forced to ;-ee himself for what he really is—a cowardly, ineffective, brainless sen- afterward. begins again on the same sort of action that got him into this thronble in the first place.

Besides, he is probably at an age when he loves to imitate those older brothers of his and he can keep busy. But it is a different story when a brand new baby comes to stay in a house where the two-or-thre-year-olc :iis conduct all his days. After all, it is pretty heart-breaking business to bo supplanted by a stranger when you're only big enough to fit , cradle yourself. To be moved out of mother's room, shushed when you want to use your lungs, and sent on errands upstairs and down, all for someone who might just as well have stepped in off the street for all you care—it's rather a jolt.

According to a i-ecent news story, this trade that brooks no interference is in the international swap in museum pieces. Whlie their countrymen throw grenades and epithets at one another or thumb their noses across trade barriers and fortified boundaries, the world's museum curators go right on passing curios around like cakes at a tea party. This is dandy, of course, in a way, but it makes a man in the midst of life's hurlyburly feel just a little uncomfortable. It suggests, like a trip to a museum, that all that the hurly- burly yields eventually are a few more curios for the curators to put in glass cases. If a man could only disturb the equanimity of those curators now and then, just a little, he might feel that his struggles were of a little more consequence. But having the gentlemen going on peacefully trading like this in such times makes him feel like so much museum-fodder. SERIAL STORY. HIT-RUN LOVE BY MARGUERITE GAHAGAN COPYRIGHT. 1938 NEA SERVICE.

CHAPTER VI '"THE evening dragged after Larry loft. Being together Sunday nights had become an established custom these last few months. And yet Pat had to admit to herself that she was relieved when- he was gone. The narrowing of his eyes, the slight inflection of his voice as he had mentioned his interest in Pat's ability to fix the boys' ticket troubled her. After all fixing a ticket wasn't so important. The boys hadn't actually been involved in an accident. A traffic violation was not a serious offense, and she knew from her months at court that such procedure was accepted. The ticket could be so handled that the boys would be let off with a few words of warning. Nothing too irregular and it would save their pal the embarrassment of paying a fine. Monday came quickly enough: a day of brilliant sunshine, of trees still more green following the week-end rain, of breezes soft and warm. The feel of spring was contagious. Problems somehow seemed less difficult, suspicions were lulled by the clear light of daytime reality. Pat approached one of the sergeants before the day's sessions began. She couldn't bring herself to go to Tom after his kindness the other evening. "If this leads to any complications please tell me," she begged. "It's a speeding ticket. My brothers were with a friend and they goaded him into doing 45 so they could see if his car would be a good buy. Now they feel responsible and have notes, Tom's words would make good copy, she supposed, even then feeling a little shiver of possessive pride going through her as she turned looking at Tom leaning forward as he spoke—all prosecutor, law enforcement agent.' * * * ACROSS the red and white •"• checked table down in the little restaurant where Tom took her during the lunch hour she wondered again how he could be so driving, so unswerving, so unalterable when prosecuting those people in court, and then change to this considerate, smiling, sometimes even naive young man who sat across from her now. "A nice quiet morning," he said while studying the menu. "But as it is we're here and for a little while we can forget traffic.' "Yes," she said, "only you know I like my work. I really even like to talk about it, I guess sometimes I bore my friends with it.' "I know how you feel. We see a slice of life here every day There's a suspense, a tenseness in the drama of a court. We're sor of behind the scenes and it gets you eventually." "Drama—yes, that's it," she repeated. "For instance that horrible accident Saturday. What wil happen to the driver if he' caught?" "When he's caught, you mean,' Tom corrected with a tightenini of his jaw. "Oh, he'll slip up be fore long. The police will get i break and they'll find him. I say 'him' although it may be a woman Still when the driver is caugh he'll have a tough time explain ent to get his client off even /ith a jury trial." * * * T OM lighted a cigaret and leaned haplr with a smile. "After all idea about special cleanliness in such matters. Infections of the facs, surgeons now point out, are especially dangerous because the skin is thin, the blooci vessels profuse, and the veins have no valves and pass directly into the largj veins which go to the important tissues of the body. Moreover, the fac is constantly in motion in association with eating, drinking, breathing, and talking, and it is simply impossible to put these tissues at rest. In one of the largest surgical clinic • of the country, it is noted that there- has never been a fatal case of an infection of the face in which there wa.; not a record that the patient had picked, squeezed, or otherwise bruised n pimple or a boil.

"Sure it's done every day, and it's not complicated." It was that simple, but she wished she hadn't had to do it. * * * 'T'HE paper campaign over the •*- Saturday hit-run case had resulted in more stringent tightening of traffic regulations during the week-end.

For certain typos of infection there are now available drugs which have a special effect on the germ.f. concerned. Surgeons have given the following advice: 1.

Realize that .such infections are dangerous, and consider them serious tilled, until he begins to look forward to the event with anticipation rather than apprehension. The new baby will be his responsibility and his friend. This goes only so far, of course, so there is something else to be done. There should be no abrupt change in his status with his parents. At the very first, wheen feelings are tender and the heart aches just a little, he should be shown that he is as precious as ever, even more so. The chances are that he will test us out, try our patience for a while, and all the rest. But he deserves patience. This is the time to keep his faith, to hold his con- back with a smile.

To the question, "What is your greatest fear?" She replied: "That I won't be able to support my parents. 1 ' Out in the San Fernando Valley lives a farmer named Tony Ciceri who raises, among other things, a lot of corn. Tony always had managed to keep a pretty straight face about the AAA, which paid farmers to grow loss of certain products, and about the crop loans, which a thoughtful government made toward a stabilization of prices. But he was completely flabbergasted the other day when some men came and offered him S1000 to let them pick and husk his corn. lie could keep the corn, and he wouldn't even have to feed the workers!

"Well, how were things today? Busy I suppose. Many drunk drivers?" Somehow she managed to answer coherently. Larry continued with small talk. "Get the ticket fixed for the kids?" "Yes, it wasn't difficult. One of the sergeants helped me." "More fixing goes on than the public knows about. You can bet on that," he said. "These judges and prosecutors can be influenced by the right powers." "I'm not so sure," she said slowly. "I've met men who couldn't be bought, and couldn't be pulled off by big shots, either."

Ten Is Served Everything about the set of "Dawn Patrol" is fearfully british and polite. Director Edmund GouUUng thanks the actors whenever they do a scene, and the actors thank Director Goulding and each other, murmuring "Well played, old chap!"

Unable to sell those, then, he proceeded to sell his body to five London hospitals—for future delivery, of course. A shocked and affluent brother later went around and bought up the conflicting commitments, and for a Christmas present gave David a deed to his own mortal remains. Landing in New York at the time of prohibtion repeal. Niven cast about for somu .sort of gentlemanly occupation and decided he might well become a wine expert.

He was hired immediately, and functioned satisfactorily for six months. Indeed, he might never have become an actor but for im unfortunate meeting with .some genuine connoisseurs from London. Air.
