A. Conqueror Assumes A Conqueror's Woes Conquest is, OH its face, a ilriimiilic and impressive spectacle. It naturally tends to inspire s warm, glow in the people at home who have sent their son's' to bring it about, even in those wljose sons did not come bade. But conquest is a coin with two sides. TJie bright face, the one polished by {lie clash of arms, is readily visible. But the other face is often dark and scaly. It is the business of consolidating the "gains" of making the conquest actually wqrllj the cost, Italy knows about that. Nobody can draw' an accurate balance-sheet on the I Ethiopian adventure, but it is a fairly easy guess that outgo far exceeds income up to this time. There is the ' good Italian blood spilled in the desert sands, there is the cost of the expert!-' •tjpnary force, and the continuing cost of supporting a big army. There arc fhe development costs wh.ich must precede any great return In raw nialerials. •Germany is beginning to lind out about the other side of' the coin, too. In Kladijo, near Prague, a German policeman is shot. Just .-.-\yhat were the circumstances is not yet dear, but it would appear that he got into one of those jams which arc inevitable when a foreign armed force is placed over native civilian populations. ••"•; Older Germans will remember the Za- bern affair, when a yoiing <ind arrogant Prussian officer cut ;dowir aif'Al- -> satian townsman with his sword The ^'saliaiis, :u'ter many years of German occupation, still hated the garrisons, and iron rule was necessary. So,.too, we lind now at Kladno: meetings prohibited, theaters closed, schools closed, doors and windows of houses nnist be,closed at night on pain of be ing fired into; civil officials arc removed and local police disarmed. These things have all happened before. They happened in Belgium when the pcnnan troops occupied Dinanl, and'Ypres, and a score of Belgian ciliQS The Belgian population was ruthlessly repressed by the military. .But they ic ipinefl Belgian. It makes no particular difference who is immediately at fault in the -Kladito affair. Such things happen, they must happen, and will happen, as long as <i foreign military remains in charge of a freedom-loving'people. To cope with such situations, to polish the dirty side of the coin pf conquest—that is a task for which Germany asked when it seixed Czechoslo- vakia. Leaving the moral side oiit of it for the moment, was it worth it?

These Two Acts Must Not Be Blocked Till 1940 •With (he flllng of referendum petitions against the act restrict 1111; personal Injury suits "to the county where Die accident occurred or (lie home county pf the damage claimant, two measures that Arkansas so greatly needs liuvc been rendered Inoperative for the tlijic being.

She was aware, liowever, that everyone was reading copies of Ihc paper, which was unusual at fliis hour. The first edition did not come out ordinarily until 11 o'clock. All (ho copies wore marked "Extra" and all bore the same banner head in bold-face type across the top of the front page, "Duke Martin Murdcied; Girl Suspectcci." It gave Mary a bitter scnsalion of pain io be back in the oflice where she had spent so much time in such close association with Torn Ladd. She felt as if he were dead. With set (ace: she sat down at her desk and began making the routine phone calls for the small items which go to make up a cocicly page. Determined to ignore the Martin story, she busied herself with srnall-fry. Mrs. Kingdon Morgan was giving a luiicheon 'for five at the Colony. TJie Forsyth Goulds had closed their Tuxedo csiale and were going lo the Carolina? for quail shooting. Mrs. Spalding Martin bad a baby. Fifi Whitney was gelling a divorce. Old Mr. Wesley Peters had lluT gout. There'd been a split at the Talleho Club. Mrs. Watts Ridley was wearing the Ridley emeralds again and couldn't move without two detectives.

A Her Mary bad collected enough of this dialler she began writing her colurnn, but it wasn't easy 'to 'concentrate. These were picayune details (hat irritated 'her mirid. The picture' of Duke 'Mar- 1 tih's dead body remained "iri her piemqry! She called to Pete, the office hoy, to put a new ribbon in her typewriter, then got up and] strolled across the room lo look out' the window while lie did it. Her eyes wandered put over the : bay. ' White caps danced on the blue waters. Sea-gulls skimmed j the waves. A great liner,' in a' convoy ol bustling lugs, was moving seaward, pcniiaiils flying', whistles blowing. Mary sighed: She wished she were on board, leaving behind the gangsters who got shot, the debs who made fools of themselves and the crazy managing editors whp insulted their reporters.' - ..:<•-.
