H. Cald- WORLD IS HARDER Moral Letdown Follows— Hesitation Waltz Succeeded by the Shag • This is the first of five articles reviewing the Itistoric 20 years since the Armistice. By WILLIS THORNTON NEA Service Staff Correspondent Twenty years ago a weary, bloody world was staggering to the close of four years of World war. People were told it was the end of an era, the beginning of a Brave New World. And it was the end of an era. But ,he (new era that began then was not :he world visioned by the muddy, Bloody men in the trenches. Three million victims of 20 wars rot in their graves since the War to End War. The League of Nations, which was to bring a new world order of reason and peace, drifts like a leaky and abandoned ship. Democracy is on the defensive in a world which was never less safe for it. Everywhere the haunting fear o£ insecurity' sends 'rnen swarming after strange causes, economic and political. Children born since 1918 have never known, may never know, the independence of Americans who used to say "Shucks! I can get a job anywhere!" Force has become the prime criterion, and might makes right in international affairs. In personal affairs, the idea that the end justifies the means is more and more generally accepted.' It the Dead-Could Live- Nevertheless, in Use 20 years since "Cease Firing" sounded across Flanders fields, a new world has arisen. Every country in the world would already seem a strange land'to a man who died in that war, if he could come back and see it. In 20 years, the population of nearly every country in 'the world has increased by millions.

The courthouse question will be prer sented twice on the ballot, first, "For or against construction," and, second, Europe before the World War. Eu ropes 20 years since 1918 have meant plenty of \vorfc for the map makers. Ami the prospects are for considerable more re-drawing of frontier lines re-naming of countries. Map above depicts the Europe of 1914 when Adolf Hitler, born Adolf Schisklgruhcr, an Austrian house painter, stood in the main square of Munich and heard the proclamation of war. There was no Poland, .no Czechoslovakia and Germany's astern frontier was Russia. Alsace and Lorraine had been Germany's since the Franco-Prussian war and the Kaiser and Franz Josef of Austria-Hungary dominated central Europe. Then the assassin of Sarajevo set the Kaiser's war machine in motion. Four years and several weeks later the "peacemakers" of Versailles sat down at the treaty table to plant the seeds of revenge, hatred—and in- jcvitably, war. Their handiwork appears in the map of Europe below after the so-called'peace treaties. "• •'. • ., ; well, superintendent of the company's West Memphis plant.

The deck was solid under her feet. Overhead, there were stars in a deep blue sky. From the open butterfly hatch over the wardroom, the sound of a piano stole softly into the night air. She was a smalj, slim girl. She wore a new evening dress, from which her shoulders rose white and lovely. Beside her, a tall young man in the blue of a naval lieutenant, with wings on his breast, was looking down at her. And she knew that he found her beautiful, and she knew that this was why—paradoxically enough— he was quarreling with her. Her hand touched the cold chain. She said, without looking at him, "I don't know what you mean. What if I do see Dwight Campbell a lot? What if we have dates and go dancing? He's nice. I like him. He likes me—" Jack Hanley had been her friend a long time, aid she often thought of him as a sturdy, dependable big brother. But now he had changed. Was it jealousy? All this sudden hatred of Dwight Campbell. All this advice—interfering in her business— The man's brown eyes were clouded. His face was grave. He looked down at her, standing there, her pale gold hair alive in the moonlight. He had said a lot of things in this miserable half hour since they had left the others In the wardroom, after dinner. Vague, roundabout things. She (Continued on Page Four) Illustration by Henry G. Schlensker. suddenly, he burst out: "Fm trying to tell you Judy that he's after pull, influence, qukl( promotions.

Arkansas beer and liquor interests have made all sorts of charges against Act No. 1 in an effort to prevent any fair election on the liquor question in this state. Not one of their charges can be proven. Act No. 1, in itself, would not decrease the revenue froln' beverage taxes. Its chief purpose, which the liquor interests have ignored, is to amend the liquor laws so that 15 pel- cent of the qualified electors, instead of 35 per cent, could by petition call for a local option election. The adoption of Acl No. 1 would put local option regarding sale of liquor on a basis of equality with other local initiated legislation. As our laws now read municipal and county electors require petitions bearing 15 per cent of the electors, but local oplion petitions require 35 per cent. Act No. 1 is fair and Democratic. Surely the good Democratic men and women of Hempstead county will not allow the liquor interests to prevent them from saying whether or not they want liquor stores an\i beer parlors on the same block where tfiey" raise their children or where they send them to school or church, A vote for Act No. 1 is a vote for good Clmstian cilizcijship, in that it is a vote for fairness and real democracy.
