We Should Learn to Speak the Language of Europe It is nearly a:quarter of a century since the United States had its first great row over military preparedness. When Woodrow Wilson launched a huge naval building campaign shortly before America's entrance into the World War, the drive received a very mixed reception. Welcomed by some, it drew bitter opposition from others. The average citizen went along with it and paid the bills without too much grumbling, but he probably never did feel that the whole business was really necessary. And when the post-war Washington conference eased the road he felt that things had as last got back to normal again. Now we are coming up to anew preparedness campaign; and this time it is doubtful that there will be one-tenth of the opposition there was before. The world is a different sort of place now, and the American people have had an unmistakable object lesson or two about the change. It is true that .we have been spending huge sums pn our army and navy for several years. Both arms of the service are probably far more nearly ready for war than at any previous time in American history. But the President apparently feels that what might be called normal peace-time preparedness is no longer good enough. This is a day of super-armaments, and no nation that wishes to make its voice heard can afford to be outclassed. For international relations today are conducted, unhappily enough, over the sharp edge of a drawn sword. Recent events in central Europe make it all too clear that sheer power has the last word nowadays. Britain and France backed down in the Czech crisis, not because their statesmen were ;cowards, but because it was perfectly obvious that the other side carried too many guns. < So a program of re-armament does not mean that we are getting ready to fight somebody. It simply means that we are making certain that our voice shall be heard if it becomes necessary for us to speak. And we do not need to look all the way to centralEurope for signs that we may eventually want to do some talking. The great dictator nations are compelled to look ceaselessly for new resources to exploit, new fields to penetrate, new areas to bring under their sway. South America lies open before them, Mexico looms a tempting morsel: we might as well realize that the advance agents of European imperialism are busy in our own back yard, offering a still-unrealized but nevertheless direct threat to our vital interests. And America fully able to strike a swift and crushing blow would be listened to; and America unable to do so might be ignored—and in consequence there might easily develop a situation t& which war was the only solution. We have no wish to meddle in Europe's quarrels. But if Europe thrusts a quarrel on us, we should be ready with the right sort of answer. Now Is the Time to Find Out The number of farms in the South increased more than 400 per cent from 1860 to 1938, while acres in cultivation dropped fro 194,296,000 to 188,542,000. Hunters killed more than 1.000,000 game birds and animals during Florida 90-day, 1936-37 hunting season. Soil experts estimate 76,000,000 acres of land that are now being cropped in the United States should be taken out of cultivation.

CHAPTER XXV DANNIE FEELEY, his long, oia- •^ fashioned nightgown trailing beneath a battered bathrobe, opened his front door and blinked at Bob Tait. "For the love of Mike," he growled, "have you got a conspiracy on to keep me from sleeping, Tait? In the devil's black of this mornin' you ring me out of bed by telephone—and tonight you pound on my own peaceful door at 11." "You'll be glad I did," Tait said, stepping inside. "Dannie — I've found the musician we're looking lor!" "George Weeks? You're crazy!" Tait grinned excitedly. "Maybe. I was crazy enough to play my hunch and put that ad in the Personals column. And I got this." He handed Feeley the letter he had received from the messenger half an hour before. Bewildered, Feeley read the letter. Then read it again, this time aloud: "'Dear Sir—I can Write a song s'milar to the one you mention in your classified item in the paper. In fact, I can tell you some things about thai song which may surprise you. If you want to talk to me I will be in the lobby of the Pacific-Plaz; Hotel at 3 o'clock tomexxpvr. will be standing by the Number 4 elevator. Yours very trulyi G. K Weeks.'" * * • TJ^EELEY looked up. "The guy is * nuts." "At least slightly. That's what J banked on when I put the ad in the paper. He couldn't stand to have it rubbed in—and no doubt the $10,000 had something to do with it." "What ten thousand?" said Feeley wrily. He shoved the letter into his bathrobe pocket. "AH right. You started this. What do we do now?" "You become a song publisher and interview Mr. Weeks." Feeley rumpled his thinning hair. "Why don't you be the song publisher?" "There's the chance that Mr Weeks may know me, and know that I'm the manager of The Swingateers. Remembering a cer- iain night in the Millbay. district, [ think it's a good -chance, too. So I'll go along with you and pretend I'm interested because my band will introduce and plug the song that you select to publish." "Okay, Bob. I've been everything else, I might as well try acting a song publisher. Got any idea how they act?" "Sure. They act dumb—like a detective," Tait laughed. "You won't have any trouble." "Get out of here," Feeley roared. "And I'll meet you in front of the main entrance of the Pacific-Plaza at a quarter until 3 tomorrow." "Good!" Tait said. "By the way, did you have Nelda Starr watched?" Feeley nodded. "Mike Dunphy's been watching her. She stayed in her apartment after you left her, apparently, and then about 10 o'clock tonight she went down to the Golden Bowl. Mike 'phoned me from there. I told him to stick with her." "Was Rogers with her?" "No. He may have gone after you*left—or he may still be in the apartment. Mike had one of his men stick around to see if Rogers came out and where he went if he did come out. I havon't heard from him, so I guess there's nothing on that." Tait pulled a magazine from his pocket. "I don't know whether it's anything or not, Dannie—but look at this." * * * TT was the reprint comics magazine which Tait had picked up in Ne'Jda Starr's apartment. "Thanks," Dannie said. "I like comics." "Listen, Mr. Feeley, look at that advertisement on the back." Dannie looked. It was the advertisement of a novelty company in Minneapolis. It offered and illustrated at least two dozen odds and ends appealing to boys. Plans for auto racers, X-ray boxes, chameleons, turtles, a book on ventriloquism, invisible ink. Dannie grinned. "Yeah. I used to send for a lot of stuff like this when I v/as a kid. Once I got a chameleon. I put it on the linoleum in pur kitchen. It was checkered linoleum, and the darned thing died trying to make good." "That's an old joke, Dannie. Look down there in the lower left-hand corner." Feeley looked. Then he raised his eyes to Tait's. "Well, what do you know about that?" "I don't know anything abo.ut it yet. But I do know it advertises a gadget to make a noise like a cat's cry. You put it in your pocket, squeeze it, and have :im with your friends and your dog. But I wonder if rhaybe it might be used for something else." "You're dreaming, Bob. This nutty musician, .with his obsession about a song called 'The Cat's Meow," might get one of these things if he figured to' do some murder. But Rogers or this Starr girl aren't crazy. It's just a coincidence." "I suppose so. But the thing interests me enough so that I'm going to wire that outfit and ask them to tell me the names of the people who've ordered that gadget jfrom this town in the last two months." Feeley yawned. "Well, go ahead and have your fun. But let me get some sleep." The detective politely opened his door again "How's Myrna these days?" Tait caught his breath, wondering if Feeley knew that Myrna had disappeared. He took a long chance. "Fine, Dannie." He felt like a heel, saying that—but he consoled himself with the thought that if Dannie knew 'that Myrna wasn't sleeping peacefully at the Claremont then Dannie Feeley himself wouldn't sleep the rest of the night. * * * AT 2:45 next day Tait stood in front of the Pacific-Plaza. He was on edge and worried. A telephone call to Anne Lester had revealed that no word had been received from Myrna since last he had telephoned. And Tait wondered if Weeks, the musician, would really appear. II he didn't— "Well, Mr. Tait!" The newspaper photographer turned to see Dannie Feeley,' a flower in his lapel. "Perhaps you don't remember me, Mr. Tait. My name is Farnsworth. Elliott Farnsworth, the song publisher." "Of course I remember you," Tait said, grinning in spite of himself. "Let's go inside and see if our genius is standing by the Number 4 elevator." Side by side the pair went into the luxurious lobby of the Pacific- Plaza, steered themselves directly toward the bank of elevators'. Surely enough, there stood by the fourth elevator a tall, cadaverous- looking fellow whose clothes were out of keeping with the well- groomeAi lobby and its prosperous- looking occupants. There's our man," Feeley whispered. "Take it easy," Bob Tait said "but of the side of his mouth. "Re<member, you are a song publisher, not a dick. Don't whip out your handcuffs yet."

Most o£ the white of egg is a pure protein, -but it has been found to contain as well a small amount of minerals and some vitamn G o the second part of vitamin B. Some children get the habit of eating the white of egg alone and a smaller number seem to prefer the yolks. The latter group are better off because it is known that the yolk provides vitamins A, B. D, and G, as well as fats, protein and minerals. the diet of the growing child. These qualities caused Dr. Mary Swartz Rose to write: 'Long experiments in feeding diets, with and without egg, have shown that although excellent growth can be secured on a ration of milk, vegetables and cereal, better growth and greater vigor are obtained when a daily portin of egg is included."

Calcium.—Eggs contain a little calcium but cannot compae with milk and milk products for supplying this substance necessary for sound bones and teeth.

It needs to be supplemented the best for the least is real thrift. So is doing without. I urn not advocating stinginess, but children of adolescent age must learn control. They cannot go on forever thinking that an obliging goose eggs. Give the young adolescent enough money for weekly needs; but an allowance is supposed to teach limit, and if supplemented by borrowing or gifts it teaches nothing at all. With little children we say, "That is too expensive, and we can't afford It," but gradually with the years they ncquiired the wisdom to see reasons for economy and their responsibility to help wlih it. Parents often allow these big boys nnd girls to think the source of income greater than it is. Prdie keeps a father from acknowledging that he because of their demands, shrink from saying thant in debt Mothers = spending money is not plentiful Then these youngsters get a hapy idea of money and its limitations. They arc quick to think that a rattle of silver in our purse means largess; or that the bills dad pulls out of his pocket could buy them the coveted present if he felt generous. Put Pride in Pocket I am quite sure that every business transaction of parents need not be aired before the children: but I am quite postivo that most of them may be family knowledge after the children are in their teens. We should put our pride right in our pockets along with the coal money and tell them exactly how things stand. The child who won't cooperate after learning how close to the wind we ride, is not worth his salt. But really there is a lot of decency and intelligence in boys and girls of this age dive them a chance. I think it an excellent idea for fathers to take their sons to their places of business for a day or two and explain (hat money is hard to earn I think it just as a good a plan for mother to show their growing girls how to save on one purchase so as to make the money stretch for another.

The easy Digestibility of eggs is so weil known that they arc included in most diets for invalids. When eggs arc properly cooikocl their digestion and absorption is improved. There is nothing about a raw egg that makes it superlatively better than a cooked egg. Since eggs supplement milk in the very ingredients in which milk is deficient the combination of eggs and milk is recognized as a most satisfying food combination. The proper cooking of an egg means the use of a low temperature which will no completely coagulate and toughen the white of the egg. When eggs are bought they should be kept in the refrigrator or in a cool place free fom odor because eggs, like milk, will pick up materials htat modify the taste and the quality Fresh eggs lend themselves to many different purposes and cben at fairly high prices arc cheap because of the essential consttuents that they make avail- A Book i Day ' —- Book on Tecumsch Tells of Courage. 'Somewhere between the "red var- mits" and the "noble red man" schools of writing about the Indians, the truth must lie. John M. Oskison, who Is proud of the Cherokee blood in his veins, has kept to that middle ground in "Tecumseh and His Times" (Putnam: 52.75). A natural pride in a blood tic to the race which produced Tecumseh, King Philip, Pontiac, Logan, Osccola, and Scquoyah has set the tone of this life o fa great Indian leader, and leads to a rather disparaging picture of William Henry Harrison, the nemesis who pursued Tecumsch until the latler's death at the Battle of the Thames in 1812. But it is the picture of Tecumseh that matters, and without over-idealization, Oskison has drawn a fine figure of n man who refused to permit the slaughter of wounded and beaten men (can every civilized race say so much today) and prevented the torture of prisoners (one hears of instances even today). Tecumsch was one with Pontiac and the other Indian leaders who dreamed of wide federations of scattered tribes to halt the onward push of white settlers into Indian lands. Partly at least because of the irresponsibility of his brother, "Tho Prophet," Tecumseh's drca'rri was doomed to failure, but not without a certain dignity. Tecumsch himself had qualities of honesty and courage that are never lost. To American civilization, the product of many peoples, those first Americans have contributed much. Oskisn's book gives a needed reminder of that contribution.—W. T.
