President Roosevell has urged it; polls show a majority of citizens favor it. But no one yet has explained just how much re-armament is needed or how expensive it is going to be.' Now, however, there comes a mil-® itary authority to declare that no very stupendous program is necessary; to say that America can protect herself fully against invasion, can guard the quest and can defend all of America's South American continent from con- vital interests in the Pacific without ;ither spending colossal sums of money juilding an unwieldy military machine or undergoing any degree of regimen- ation. This authority is Major George Yielding Eliot; his findings are pres- ehtisfd'in "a .book, ''.The Ramparts, We Watch'," just published by Reynal and Hitchcock. The Program For Defense Assuming that America wants simply to guard her own shores, defend the New World and protect her interests in the Pacific, Major Eliit asserts that the job can be done far more cheaply than most people suppose. Such a program, he says, requires the nation to base its defense on the following principles: 1.

Marvel accunen Jndy •f lovlnsr her hiuhand, Dwisht, And of waiting around to "pick the bones of my marriage," CHAPTER XVIII JUDY never knew how she got «* off that ship. Marvel, following her out of Dwight's room, was admirably self-composed after her passionate outburst, but Judy's lips were white and her knees were shaking. Riding home, Jack Hanley noticed her quietness, the way her fingers picked at the bag in her lap. But he said nothing. Maybe he thought it was seeing Dwight again that had unnerved her. "I'm going straight back to the Enterprise," he said, as the car pulled up in front of her door. "We shove off in the morning. More routine flights. The battlewagons and cruisers will be leaving for the North, but no one seems to know whether we'll go later or not." She clung to his steady hands. "Call me as soon as you get back, Jack." Her smile was tremulous. "And happy landings!" With most of the men gone, the station settled into an unusual quiet in the next few' days. The wives of the men on the battle ships made plans to drive to Bremerton. Three or four girls went in each car, and even those with children were making the trip. The wives of the pilots on the Enterprise were the only ones who Were uncertain of what would happen in the next few weeks. Diane said cheerfully, "We'll sit and twiddle our thumbs." Judy wanted to ask her father when Jack Hartley's orders to report to North Island would come through, but she didn't quited^re. Once or twice, in the evening, while he read his Naval Proceedings or one of the old books of se4 lore, the collection of which Was bjs hobby, she girded herself to ask. But each time, something Within failed her, and no sound came. The Enterprise was steaming miles off the coast somewhere, she knew. As always, when it was out there, she tried to picture the great gray waves, the long deck With its white-painted lines, sec- tipning off the squadrons. Because it was one of the newest of tfae airplane carriers, the Enterprise bad a high plane deck, with an d the usual quarterdeck accommodations underneath. It was curious, she thought, how infrequently she had been on board Jack's ship. Was it because his work meant, so much to him that he hardly ever spoke of it? That would explain his instinctive shying away from parading the ship on which he worked. * * * EN she went to bed, she couldn't sleep. She lay wide- eyed, through the still, dark hours. She kept remembering that Jack was out at sea. Navy wings. But he wouldn't be flying now, at night. Or might he? She had heard Bill Bell speaking of landing flares; she had heard him joking about flyers who got lost and couldn't find the ship when they got back. The Enterprise was a mother eagle, sending aloft her eaglets. They roamed the sky, they flew miles into the blue, ahead of the slow-moving ships of the line, and then they came back. Really, she knew little of the flying branch of the service. Long ago she had visited on the Station at Pensacola, but all she remembered was swimming inside the steel shark net there. That and the hangars, the line of student craft drawn up, the fledgling flyers standing at attention beside their ships. Lakehurst was a more familiar world. Lying there awake, she would remember achingly how she and Ward had entered the dimness of the huge hangar. How they had compared the small Los Angeles with the huge, silver Akron. Ward had explained their new water recovery system, and he had shown her the toggles which released the ballast. There had always been .-. sign in front of the marine sentry's hut, as you entered the station. "Condition One." Or, "Condition Two." Or, "Cor.Uition 3." Condition one was when all the men were actually at their stations. Ward had explained about the non-rigids, taken her across the flat, sandy field to the hangar where they were kept. The "k-3" was the ship on which he had trained. He told her that blimps not only had a distinct naval usefulness for convoy, anti- mine and anti-submarine work, but they also allowed restless lighter-than-air men to get into the air and "keep their hand" in. At that time the Macon had not yet been completed. She thought sadly of how Ward's dreams had been dashed to dust. The beautiful, beloved dirigible had killed him. The other one, of which he talked with much pride, was gone, too. Jack Hanley, flying over the ocean in the darkness, might never have a chance again to hook his plane into the belly of an airship. " | JUDY wished that Jack was given «* to talking of his work as Ward had been. Perhaps that would make her feel closer to him. She was a Navy girl, and shoptalk that might have bored . a debutante found her an eager listener. She wondered whether Jack didn't confide in her because he thought she wouldn't care about anything that touched his personal life. After all, she had told him plainly she didn't love him. ' At moments like this, alone in her dark room, Judy wondered how wide 'was the margin that separated the trust and faith she had in Jack from love. Love. But then, quickly, there would flame into her blood the memory of Dwight Campbell. No kiss of Jack's could set her senses reeling as Dwight's kiss had done. It must be that she depended on Jack, and respected him. Once a curious thought struck her. If Ward could know—Ward who had died gallantly with his ship in the dark waters of the Atlantic—wouldn't he have wanted Jack to take his place? Jack Hanley had been, his closest friend. And Judy was honest enough to admit that Ward had ever disliked the type of man Dwight Campbell was. Why was it that she could see Dwight's faults so clearly, and love him still? One night as she was lying in bed, and these things were churning in her mind, the telephone rang. Judy had no extension in her room, and she waited, suddenly wide-awake, for her mother to answer from her own room. But Mother had not heard it. It rang and rang, until Judy reached for her robe and slipped down* stairs. Her heart was pounding with a sudden, sick foreboding. "Admiral Alcott?" said the male voice at the other end. "I'll get him. What is it?" But the officer or the enlisted man, whoever it was, only said, "Get him quickly, please." She ran back upstairs and pounded on her parents' door. "Telephone from the station, Father. 'Oh, I—I think something has happened!" It couldn't be the Enterprise, she told herself. Her father would not be called in the middle of the night, like this, unless it wa« something right here in the station. The affairs of the Fleet afloat were not his province, now. She heard her father pick up the phone at his bedside. "Ad* miral Alcott speaking." Then she heard the silence. The awful, menacing stillness, which must mean that something dreadful was coming over the wire to his ear. She heard h«r own voice cry* to* "What is it, Father. »s it?." <. (To Be Continue*) antagonists in either ocean. 2. To keep that fleet concentrated in one ocean. 3. To maintain an army strong enough lo defend all fleet bases (both on the continent and in ourlyng possessions like Hawaii and Panama), to guard the United States' principal seaports and to furnish a mobile, instantly-available force which could deal wilh any possible landing force or provide a small expeditionary force for offensive warfare. Included under this heading is the maintenance of an air force capable of meeting any conceivable attack, and a sufficiency of anti-aircraft units. 4. To make the Panann Canal impregnable, and to supplement it by construction of a canal across Nicaragua. 5. To keep' our army and navy separate, but to make full plans for their co-operation when necessary; and to continue the air defense on its present basis''rather than setting up a separate departmenl for it as so many air enthusiasts have urged. Need Cruisers and Destroyers How big a fleet would such a program involve? For our purposes, says Major Eliot, the present battleship program—which contemplates 18 batlleships of an ag gregale of 630,000 tons—is adequate. If it should develop that Japan is building the huge batlleships which have been rumored, Ihese figures should be revised upward; olherwise, they are sufficient. In cruisers, we probably need 45. We npw have, built or building, 18 heavy cruisers and nine light cruisers; the addition of 18 light cruisers would fill the bill. As to destroyers, the present program—which calls fir a tolal tonnage of 228,000—is possibly adequate but, according to Major Eliot, might well be revised upward to some extent. The submarine program, which calls fo r some 56 vessels of 81,957 tons, is probably inadequate; a total of 80 subs in considered essential by Major Eliot. Of light patrol vessels, a few experimental types should be built; but since these vessels can be produced rapidly, no large number is required before the outbreak of war. Only Small Army Needed America now has five airplane carriers, with a capacity of 560 planes. The Vinson bill provides for 40,000 additional tons in this class; when these ships are built our carrier strenglh should be ample. Incidentally the :otal of 3000 naval aircraft called for in :he Vinson bill is perhaps adequate, but certainly not excessive. As to the army, Major Eliot is equally explicit—and equally reassuring. If, he says, we make up our minds that we are not going ti fighl in Europe or undertake to police the world anywhere else, we can have a secure defense by maintaining a regular army of only 238,000 men. These he would divide as follows: For overseas garrisons (Panama, Hawaii, and so on), 44,500. For coast defense at home, 20,000. For anti-aircraft defense, 16,200 For the air corps, 23,000. For a mobile army of nine small divisions, together with the necessary cavalry, tank regiments, headquarters troops, and so on, 135,000. If there is added to that a national guard of 220,000 men, properly organized and equipped, the United btates could, in case of emergency, marshal overnight a compact striking force of 205,000 men—and still have in reserve a force of 18 national guard divisions of 4250 men each which would be a framework for such additional volunteer forces as might be needed. Cuts Cost Such a striking force could beat off any hostile expeditionary firce which could conceivably be put down on American shores. It could seize such island outposts as might be required m a Caribbean or Pacific war, or serve as an expeditionary force in any other field which a policy designed to preserve American security might require. Furthermore, Major Eliot estimates .hat to maintain such an army would- cost barely 25 per cent more than Uie army now costs, No conscription wiulU By Olive Roberts Barton Child Leader Who Gets Second Place Must Learn to Take It—React in Defeat Shows Character We have learned to believe that the boy or girl made of leader sluff is always happy. Nothing could be further from the truth. When they fail they are the most unhappy people in the world. And they do fail because in the higher brackets competition becomes tougher and keener. They have not the "average" to fight but the "above — average" other boys or girls quite as quick and able as they are, with the same determation and the same ambitions. f Two boys are rivals for captaincy in a ball team. One is to be chosen, the other to suffer defeat. Two are rivals for the forensic "debating" honors in the big contest. They have passed through the various stages of eliminalion, and now Ihe judges must choose one to rpresent the school at the big meet. The prize .is a trip to Hoolywood or New York. Maybe miney. One will get hs picture in the be necessary; nor would a tremendous expansion of America's industrial plant be needed in order to equip and service such an army. As to the army air force: present plans contemplale a lolal of 2320 serviceable planes. This number, says Major Eliot, should be sufficient—provided, as always, that we figure on new world security and decide against participalion in war soverseas. paper, Ihe olher wil stay home and mow the lawn. The mother wilh a brilliant son or daughter knows how they suffer when the blow fals. The up-and- coming one will try again. But sometimes interest and energy wane after a crushing blow. There is no magic herb to heal the wound, and no way lhal I know of lo. comforl Ihe loser. However, we might look back of the scenes again, as we always ap- epar (o be doing, and see if defeat is a g<^od or bad exeperience toendure. Firsl of all we can examine inlo Ihe credentials of the real leader. I believe they read something like this, "He who would head his fellows must first be able to conlrol himself and suffer a blow lo pride with calmness and peace." To swallow defeat, to keep up courage under disappointmenl lakes self- conlrol. When the eyes arc turned in on hurt feelings and remain so, it hints of immaturily and softness. No great man ever lived who allowed one or even dozens of heartbreaks to undermine his puropse. The great surgeon who takes down his door plate because he misjudged an operation is not brave. The officer who yielded a batlle because his rival was raised in rank is un- worlhy lo wear any insignia. Which Will It Be? Now we come back lo our two boys who nfo rivals for the captaincy of the teaihi, One has to give way. Will it be Arch or Dexter? There ia one suggestion you might make, mother.

In New York By Oorge Ross NEW YORK—Cafe society-thai vaguely defined inner circle of rich people who patronize smnrt reslu- ranls—has loomed to snub the outsider who seeks to crnsh its gates. To be an outcast from this little world means that the head waiter i-.nd the house photographer docsnt flash a bulo by way of welcome aiu the people at the nclpoining tables don't rush over to gush, "But, dnr-linfi you look too-too somthing or other!' To several charming but impecunious Park Avenue belles the pligh of these poor folk has be?.n doleful Why not help them up the ladder of social climbing and thus console them? At moderate prices, of course Why not found an exclusive brand of cafe society, to take care of th(. boys and girls who don't click with the men and maids of the Stork and ElMo- rocco? With the sincere purpose naturally ,that such a scheme would be both altruistric and profitable. "Invitations"—55 jcr So a group of bush league Elsa Maxwells has set out to ameliorate the suffering of the socially snubbed. And here's how it's done: One fine morning in the mail, Mr and Mrs. OctaviusX. Quackcnbush who are not any too well regarded by cafe society, receive an engravcc invitation in the mail. It says tho Bettina Blueblood, chairman of the Playfair Dinner Dance Club, requests the pleasure of their company at a dinner dance to be held in a midtown night club of middling prestige. There is a small matter of five dollars fee per person, but that's to cover postage and incidentals, for this is Bcllina'i parly and she wants it to be in the spirit of cameraderie. Oh yes, it's strictly formal, naturally. So, Mr. and Mrs. Quakenbush, who weren't doing anything that night anyway, accept the invitation ("Bettina ia a dear, isn't she? ") and join a throng of other social-thwarted couples at five dollars yer head, in an oasis that wouldn't have been doing any business at all that night, if Miss Blueblood hadn't made a deal. And the deal is profitable to the entre- preneuse and properictor, usually a 50-50 split. Ostensibly, of course, such snappy functions enrich the coffers of the Playfair Dinner and Dance Club of which, we suspect, Bettina not only is chairman, but secretary, trcas- urcer, scrgeant-al-arms and the entire membership. Frustration—§5 per We stopped in" at one of these prearranged bacchanalcs the other night. There was Brcttina, or whatever her right name is, flitting around to the tables with the ebullience of a hostess who has heard good news at the cash register, glib with idle flatlery and table talk. We haven't seen such a sad assemblage of guposts al a party as those who were there, being gay with dcspeara- lion. Nor were there prospects of the names of Ihosc present turning up in the society colmns the nexl morning. And the social climber know no more heartbreaking frustration.
