With ,he help of an assistant, he staged a great demonstration of his explosive for Hitler, Goebbels and a glittering assembly of Nazi "notables. The explosion point was at a safe distance from the wooden platform where Hitler was to press the button that wouJd set it off. After a long-winded scientific explanation of the wonders of his explosive, Ul- senite, Tommy connected up the wires and gave Hitler the signal to press the button. "There followed an earsplltting roar, and debris flew up in a dense cloud, blotting out the scene; the ground jerked beneath their feet Hitler ducked instinctively and clung to the table; small pebbles and fragments of soil rained down upon them all. Even Hambledon turnec rather white. 'Remarkable! Astounding 1 Incredible! 1 Hitler said. It was, too, for Hambledon's explosion was causec by a couple of tons of that well- known TNT which Tommy had buried under the touted Ulsenite and thus had safely hidden from the ever-suspicious eyes of the Gestapo. The success of the demonstration enabled Tommy to stay longer in Germany for the real work a hand in "Green Hazard," namely the real singeing of the Nazi beard You will enjoy "Green Hazard" for inlttlng In which It im possible o waste quite so much material, as one could always unravel the ones hat were knitted all wrong and knit hem up again." "The American demand for a world court Is more than a century old," says Denna >rmnk Fleming In •The United States and the World Court" (Doubled*? Doran).- for the last fifty years, many American representatives at frequent International conferences have worked out numerous plans tor world court* and our participation in them. Every time the legislation and treaties necessary for our entrance Into a world court hare cone up In the Senate, they have been killed by an obstructionist minority group. This minority group has bsen one hundred percent successful because such legislation requires the approval of two-thirds of the senate and can thus be killed by one-sixteenth of the total membership of Congress. The matt notorious miscarriage of he will of the people wax, of count, the League of Nation*. The Senate Croup th«n ted by Henry Cabot dg*, prevented the acceptance of the League in the Senate, though Lodge himself admitted that >5% of the StnaU was for it when first presented, and Borah, alco an opponent" of the League, said that M% of the country was for It. • Mr. Fleming point* out that the provision for two-third* majority to pass treatie* ki th* one thing in our OonstitutSon that other countries have not copied. He proposes a constitutional amendment to allow treaties to pass by simple majority, a suggestion which has been backed by powerful newspai>er and popular support. As he says, however, the final responsibility for this shocking minority rule lies 'not with the obstructionists in the Senate, but with the people who put them there, with the American voters.
