Of course, deliberate bombing of | about his sensations in bombing, civilians — with emphasis on the j word "deliberate" — is contrary i to international law and is a throwback to barbarism. But the com| mittce has registered its protest at the wrong headquarters. The Germans, Italians and Japanese have engaged in purposeful bombing of non - belligerents throughout the war, presumably in an effort to break civilian morale. Some awful atrocities have been committed and he told me he always is anxious "for the women and kids." "You see." he added, "I have a three-year-old boy of my own at home. I hate to think of him playing near a bombed factory. That makes me careful. We can't ask for greater care than that. As a matter of fact, ns this column has insisted before, talk about "human warfare" is a lot of bunk. War can't be humanized, though we can and do soften some There has been no incident of this of the blows. Just so long as there's sort chargeable to the Allies, however, so far as I know. The civilians -_.._._ who have been killed in Cologne By DeWITT MacKENZIE ;uld otlicr p i accs have died by Should the winged fighting forces j chance and not by design. cf the Allies cease bombing industrial cities like Cologne or the manufacturing suburbs of Paris, for example — because civilians are Killed in the raids which are carry- ijig us towards victory and the end ol a bloody war? A committee of Britons—of whom Professor H. Stanely Jeyons, widely known educator and author is one — has petitioned the British government to "stop bombing civilian." The committee doesn't object to precision bombing of military and industrial targets, but is "horrified'' at such civilian casualties as were caused in Cologne. Now I don't think for a minute that the committee has lighted a fire which will act as a beacon to summon the world to its support. However, it has raised an interesting subject and one which is quiet- j ed an example of this from Eng- ly'-but widely being discussed. The ' land last fall. I was chatting with rmed aggresion which must be met by defense in. kind, just so long will civilians die. Try to sciui.'in out of it all you can. but wars are won by killing. When you slop to think about it. does death by bombing hurt a civilian more than it does a soldier? I doubt it, though perhaps the civilian's mental anguish is greater because of lack of schooling in violence. Anyway, the Allies aren't going to let the lives of a few thousand civilians stand in the way of sav- As.-eed that deliberate bombing civilians is savagery — supposing they get caught at the target? Are bombs to be withheld because of that? The factories of Cologne were turning out weapons of death to be used against the Allies. Likely some were making bombs for British babie. Certainly the efforts of that great industrial center men- j ing the world from the barbarities aced the Allied cause. They were j of Hitler and the Japanese, protracting the war, thereby costing the lives of thousands of Nnit- ed Nations troop and causing untold suffering to civilians i n Allied countries. Humanity doesn't ask us to make such a sacrifice in order to protect enemy peoples. Actually Allied bombers do their utmost to protect civilians I report- New York is only 1.60:5 miles farther from Tokyo than San Francisco by air. Toh United States for one is building the greatest air force in the world — and we intend to use it. We shall go out of our way to save civilian lives—but, unless my guess is wrong, we shall keep right on bombing with until the tnq t v • O /' j&jt*mf2 "' ' •9* ^^^__-^*—^ * •'• ^^if DRESSES Bemberg Sheers Butcher Linens Printed Jerseys and And Oner New and Beautiful Patterns • - Styles for Spring Priced at 2.98 to 14.85 Men's Slack Suits Men's New Rayon Twill Slack Suits, Newest Colors and Designs. 4.98-5.98-6.98 Hosiery See Our New Hosiery, Made by Phoenix and Vanette, Priced 98c up We Give Eagle Stamps The Leading Department Store Geo.

NEW YORK STOCKS New York. April R —</P)— The stock market, on a selective basis, regained its equilibrium today and a wide assortment of favorites edged into new high ground for the year or longer. Dealings slowed after a fast but uneven start. Bushing shifted from one section of the list to another, with farm implements, rubbers, aircrafts, utilities, sugars, scattered rails and specialties receiving alternate suport. Low-priced issues again were the speediest movers although volume failed to duplicate the three preceding better than two-million-sharc sessions. Turnover was around 1,800,000 shares. Advances of fractions to a point or more — there were a few wider jumps — predominated near the close although lop marks were cut in most cases. alod with commission house and l selling forces values down in the final hour and the market closed around the lowest levels of the dtiy.

The initial bursts immediately Keneratod urout billows of rapidly- spreading smoke which obscured subsequent hits. But the cameras of the newsreel men showed very few bombs landed outside the tar- Sol area, and the uniformity of the smoke blanket indicated the comprehensiveness ol destruction. T h e Paris radio, meanwhile, broadcast a statement that the number of killed in the American raid on the Erla aircraft works at Antwepr Monday had risen to 2.f>00 and added this figure was not complete.
