Democracy Cannot Fight With Fascist Weapons Americans have spent the last fortnight wondering how, where, nnd when the democratic ideal is going to make an effective defense against Fascism. With all its. imperfections, the democratic way seems to us » promise a future in which som-Aow mankind will be able to develop its limitless potentialities, while Fascism seems to offer precisely the reverse. And it was this conviction, even more than the. widespread feeling of sympathy for Czechoslovakia, which made so many Americans heartsick over the things that had been happening overseas. But the defense ot democracy is a good deal like charity: that is, it begins at home. Arid what happened the other night in Hudson.county, New Jersey, is a fine illustration of the fact. In Hudson county the German-American Volksbund decided to hold a r&Uy. H was to be addressed by Fritz Kuhn, the "fuehrer" of this home-grown Nazi outfit. But when the meeting started a mob descended on the scene, thre-w stones and vegetables, broke a number of heads, and caused a speedily and disorderly adjournment. Socialist Norman Thomas has as little love for Fascism as any nnn in America; but Mr. THomas remarked that this mobbing of the Volksbund "is doing 'more to promote Fascism in America than- Fritz Huhn ever can do." ...And-all of us who are eager to preserve our democracy must realize that Mr. Thomas was dead right. . ' • _When you try to defeat Nazi brutality by applying brutality c.f your own, you are simply playing the other fellow's game. You are meeting him on his own ground, and by doing so you are confessing thnt in your heart you don't really believe in your own vaunted principles. The essence of this fascist-Nazi theory is the proposition that bnite force may be Used to. shut, off unwelcome -ideas; and the essence of democracy is that any mail may voice any idea that seems good to him, without hindrance, because the good sense, of the people will in the long run be protection against disaster. .There are a great rnahy things we can do to save democracy, but there is "one thing we cant do. We 'can't fight for it. Democracy is the first casualty in any fight, be it a great war or a street corner row. And if the defenders of democracy abandon the principle that their idea may be preserved without the resort to fjsts, clubs, and guns,_they lose the battle before they begin.

MORKIS of the American Medical Assodttlom, ud «( Health "Children Acquire Speech Habits Through Continual Imitation If Alexander Dumas Were Here Today, He Wouldn't Be Here Very Long HOLLYWOOD.—Of all the liberties taken with the classics, there probably never has been anything to equal the casting of the Ritz Brothers in "The Three Musketeers." But while Alexandre Dumas lies a'whirling in his grave, Porthos Ritz, Athos Ritz, and Aramis Ritz will be whooping it up for the delight of all olerant customers. At that, disguised with a lot of chin and lip shrubbery, (This fs tfie second 'of two articles in which Dr. Fishbein dis- ', cusses the matter of speech training.) . Many uneducated people apparently take pride ih speaking with a peculiar locution or accent. • 'For example, ih the movies, criminals invariably talk but Of one side .of the mouth and with a muffled tone. •Bad boys always speak ih this mah- 'nr, and use a lot of slang. Unfortunately, too many boys want to be thought of as bad, and actually avoid speaking clearly and distinctly. Language" is. such a matter of imitation that parents should keep this fact constantly in mind. Parents need not worry too much about the age at which children begin to talk, according to a recent writer in Hygeia. Remember that talking, like other efforts, represents mind and muscle co-ordination. If the child learns in jumping .and climbing how to co-ordinate the activities Of the large muscles, he will le&rn leter how. to co-operate muscular ijc- tivity used in speech. Many authorities are convinced that defective speech may be due to the prevention of the use of the left hand, by a child who is naturally left-hand-' ed, and that sometimes even the use of a muscl-limitihg apparatus to prevent thumb sucking may be associated with defective speech. A teacher of speech has listed seven rules for parents which will be helpful in developing good speech: 1 — Do not correct the child's pronunciation 'or enunciation. Applaud that which is right. Do not stress that which is wrong. not imitate the child's baby talk. When you say "dravy" for gravy and "wed" for red, simply because the baby talks that way, you confirm him ih his difficulty. But do not correct him too severely. If- you keep on talking English, he will talk it as soon as he can. 3— Never talk down to babies and little children. 4 — Do not nag, coax, or raise your voice in ah effort to get the baby to talk. Speech will come naturally. 5 — If the baby's uncle and aunt stammer, or if you stammer yourself, give the baby a chance to learn how to talk from someone else. Children will imitate. 6 — Give the child a chance to talk, and listen to him when he talks. This will encourage him. 7— Tell the child to listen. Do not ignore him, but include him whenever possible in the conversation. Obviously, parents who want to help a child talk will have to think a lot about their own speech. They will have to remember to speak correctly, to listen to him when he talks, to make sure he is speaking correctly, and to develop a pleasant, distinct manner of expression. RAISING A By Olive Roberts Barton Don't Allow Children to Make Mother Their Goat Now comes the question of discipline regarding the twelve-to-fburteener. I dc not know of any age when parents are more puzzled about what measures to take, or when to bear down and when to encourage. The young adolescent often shows so much indifference to family affairs that most parents leaen over backward to salvage all the love they can gleean. They don't want to alienate their offspring or break the ties of confidence that appear so perilously thin at the moment; and as a result they permit these restless young dreamers more rope than usual. This is 'diplomatic as well as kind. On the other hand, inevitable humoring ahid coaxing have their ill effects. Habit once entrenched stays habit, no matter what the age, and maturity is calling with heavier responsibilities ahead. To overlook complete laziness to shut the eyes to persistent carelessness and submit to chronic bad temper, such a cours is not doing any offender a favor. For one thing, the young adolescent, not knowing exactly what he wants, imagines often that his burdens are too much to bear. He is given to exaggerating his feelings. Our nicest girls show peevish streaks, and the sons of our souls get downright belligerent and mean. It takes very little to ruffle the waters and tip the bark of self-control. The natural thing to do, and they do it, is to blame somebody. Mother, being closest, gets more than hei share. Sometimes the other members of the circle come in for their share too, especially younger sisters anc brothers. Well, this is one kind of license, ' think, that even the bewildered young 'teens are not entitled to. However disgruntled the young hopeful, he .must not take it out on his mother Or anybody else in the family, for tha 1 matter. He must try to control tha great grief of his over nothing at all I was charmed when the mother o a fourteen-year-old boy recently caught him up after he had said thing unpleasant. She siacl, "James as long as you live in this house you will speak to me politely. There is nr reason for my being pleasant and kinc to you when you cannot he decent if me. Once and for all, I want it un derstood that any more show of tern per to me cuts you off at once from any further favors of mine. Remember, please." We have to overlook much that these developing children do and say, and not take them much too seriously. But they must learn that they are not entitled to a permanent license. They must help with household jobs when lessons permit, and behave on an average right well. If they don't, they will emerge into full-fledged youth convinced of their right to conduct themselves as they will. the boys look credibly Gallic, nnd of course they can shrug in French ns convincingly as they do in Jewish. Disguising their antics with a story has been something else again. It wasn't possible to conform to the Dumas tradition, so the tale has been altered more than slightly. Director Allan Dwan explained it. He said that at the beginning of the picture there Will be three bona fide musketeers. These will stop for a night at the Ritz Brothers' Inn, where Al, Harry nnd Jim will be dusting around in blue pantaloons nnd white serving aprons. The musketeers will innocently entrust their travel-stained uniforms to the obsequious trio and retire for a nap before the arrival of D'Artagnnn, who has challenged them to a duel. Well, the elegant fripperies arc too much for the Ritzes, so they get into the costumes and are clowning around when B'Artagnan comes in and begins the duel before explanations can be made. An officer of the king luckily happens along and arrests the four of them for dueling before any Ritz blood is whstecl. From' then on, the notion is divided between supporting > •D'Artng^fln nnd trying to get rid of! the mns'qXVernde costumes. .

CHAPTER XIV '"THE "skeleton" which Bob Tait had in mind when he left Dannie Feeley was the matter of the phonograph records which Lud Dombey had been bootlegging outside his contract with the legitimate recording company. Tait was afraid of that angle just now more than anything else. He knew that with Dombey's death the whole business might be exposed, and Myrna's chances for getting into additional trouble would be heightened. The moment no returned to Feeley's office he thumbed through Dombey's papers until he found the agi-eement with the recording company. Immediately he put in a long distance call to the president, whose signature was one of those on the contract. "Mr. Montgomery? . . ." he said, when the call came through. "My name is Robert Tait. L'udderi Dombey's widow has just appointed me manager of The Swingateers Corporation in place of Harris Rogers." "Oh, yes," came the suave voice over the wire. "And I suppose, in view of the recent unhappy business at the Pacific-Plaza, you feel you should have a new deal on Dombey's records? Well I want to say, Mr. Tait, that v/e don't trade on that type of publicity. We've a contract with you, and I'm willing that it stand." "So am I, Mr. Montgomery. And you're wrong. I'm not calling for more money. I'm calling to find out if you're a good sport." "Good sport? What do you mean?" * * * «f 4 JUST this—and I'm going to put all the cards on the table looking over papers and 1 —I've just been Dombey's private find he's made some bootleg records for foreign consumption—" "That's in violation of his contract, Tait." "I know that, too. But I want you to believe this. I had nothing to do with ft, and neither did Mrs. Dombey. There'll be no more of it, and I'll get those records in just as soon as it's humanly possible. Meanwhile I want to ask that you give us a break." Montgomery's voice was cold, and cautious. "What do you mean a break?" "Give me a chance to ge: th". unsold records in. and turned over :o you. And promise me that you won't start suit for violation of contract without 15 days notice." There was a silence at the other end of the wire. Then: "All right, Tait. I don't know you. But I'll give you the benefit of the doubt —for the moment." "Thanks, Mr. Montgomery. And don't forget, there's still a band called The Swingateers. 'Torchy' ens now, and it'll be just as good a Stephens is going to lead them band as ever. We want to make some new record- for you." "That," said Montgomery, "we can see about later." "Okay—and thanks a million." Tait replaced the receiver with trembling fingers. "Whe-ew!" he breathed. Immediately, the telephone rang again. It was Dannie Feeley. 'That line's been busy for five minutes," Feely said. "Would you mind not using the headquarters' telephone for your private business?" "Sorry, professor. What's on the mind?" "I've got a good description/of George Weeks, and a picture. And I've got another lead. Just wanted to oil you I'm going to follow it along without picking you up at the station. Don't be carrying of! any of those Dombey papers." "Dannie, you don't trust me," laughed Tait. "Everything will be just as you left it. Right now I'm going to talk to 'Torchy' Stephens —he's leading the band from now on, and he might know a thing or two." "Go ahead," said Feeley, "but if you can get anything out of a bunch of swing band guys, you're good." "Well, I can try." * * * T67HEN Feeley had huh? up, Tait vv called Stephens' hotel. The musician answered sleepily, and Tait said: "Listen, Torchy—how soon could you get the band together?" "It's only four o'clock," Stephens answered in a hurt tone. "It ought to be easy to ge. 'em together—because they're probably all in bed, where they ought to be." "Can you have them in your apartment at five?" A badly stifled yawn came over the wire. "We-ell, my apartment's pretty small, Bob. But I'll try. What's the idea, anyhow?" "I'm your new manager," Tait said, "and I want to talk to you " Stephens' voice came sudden.y awake. "You—you are? Wl at happened to Rogers, anyhow?" "Mrs. Dombey fired him. ; I don't mind saying it was at my request." Tentatively Tait added: ; 'Any objections?" "None at all, Mr. Manager. Harris Rogers never was a guy I'd pick up to go on a fishing trip, Come oh around at five and the cats will be here." "Good going. Torchy. See you then." And, true to his word, Torchy had them packed into his diminutive apartment when Tait got there at a minute before five. "Boys," grinned Torchy, "th(£ is the new manager. He looks like a guy that would pay salaries, but you never know. And say, Mr. Tait, you might tell us right now how many you're going to fire." "I'm not going to fire anybody," Tait said. "I'rr. going to scream for help from you fellows." said Torchy. mentioned salaries too Oh-oh "Maybe I soon." * * * T3OB TAIT laughed. "No you didn't. I think we can still pay them—providing we work together. The 3wingateers is still a hot band. You fellows all thought a lot of Dombey. Well, before he —he was killed he made Myrna Dombey a partner in the corporation. That means she's taking Lud's place. If the thing goes down, she goes with it—and so do we all. Some of you fellows in the band were helping Lud Dombey make bootleg records. I'm not asking who you were, because I don't care. Lud was on the spot and I suppose you were trying to help him. Anyhow, I've been in touch with Montgomery of the recording company, and there won't be trouble, at least for a while. And I think I can cinch up the contract at the Pacific- Plaza in spite of all the mess. But here's the rub. There're people who'd like to see the murder hung on Myrna Dombey. If there's any guy here who thinks it should be, I'd like to hear from him." No sound came from the group crowded together there in Torchy's apartment. "That's swell. Because if Myrna Dombey gets messed up in the killing of Lud, our chances of keeping The Swingateers intact isn't so good." "The Swingateers have got to keep going," one of the boys said in a low tone. "Lud is just as big an idol today with the whackies as he ever was,. Torchy knows his style. And we'll all do what we can. We'll swing as wide as we ever did, won't we, boys?" "Wide as gates," another said. "We'll send it out for the ickies." Tait grinned. He felt better about things than he had for sev* eral hours. (To Be Continued)] fool like that," and he passed the word along. Farr'ell is still air-minded, and a little puzzled that nobody wants him for a pupil. A Book l Day By BniM Crtton Bcebe Examines A Lively Gulf It is hard to think what could have been the origin of the popular conception of a naturalist as a dry-as-dust fellow with formaldehyde in his veins instead of blood. Certainly no naturalist ever fitted that description so poorly as does William Beebc. For Mr. Beebe is not merely a distinguished naturalist; he is a first-rate writer. He has both a stimulating imagination and a perky sense of humor, he seems to gel a great deal of honest human fun out of his pob, and he communicates that fun to his readers. And his newest book, "Zaca Venture" (Harcourt: $3), is fully as entertaining as any of his earlies tones. This time he tells about a cruise 'in the gulf of Lower California, on which h collected various kinds of marine specimens, explored divers rock-bound coasts, and examined such diverse matters as the color changes in a dying bonito, the mating dance of the albatross, and the colossal strngeth of the whale shark. This latter fish runs to some 40 feet or more in length. It seems to be perfectly harmless, but trying to capture it with a harpoon and line is rather like trying to lasso a tornado. Mr. Beebe tried it; the shark dived so deep that a steel oil drum attached to the end of the line came up mashed flat from underwater pressure. Then the shark towed the boat around for a while, until it finally got tired of the game and started away so fast that it simply tore the iron out as if it were a trout-hook. Mr. Beebe has many good yarns to tell, and his book makes excellent reading. The Polynesians Were Explorers If you learn toward the lore of Pitcairn and Tahiti and the brown-skinned folk who people the myrid South Sea islands, settle yourself for an evening with Peter H. Buck's "Vikings of the Sunrise" (Strokes: ?3.50). Buck, himself the son of Maori, has put together the whole romantic story of the strangely efficient stone- age people who, long before Colmbus and Balboa, crossed the Pacific and colonized every habitable spot in its vast interior. The Polynesians, says Buck (now director of the Bishop Museum, Honolulu), may very likely have come in the dim remote ages from India.

In time they had settled a vast triangular area in the Pacific from Hawaii to New Zealand. They showed nn amazing nntlcal skill, building out-riggers nnd double canoes to carry as mny as 100 |)ersons 2000 miles to sea. And all more remarkable is the fact that they did this with simple stone ad'/es. At the same time they carved massive five-ton stone monuments on Easter island, at Pilcairn, mid in other places. Through the ages they developed a boundles store of myths nnd legends and native culture. Familiar with all this, Buck explores the islands for you, recalls their folklore traces their history, and produces a fascinating tale. —P.G.F.
