L Taking Hawaii Into The Union Tlio joint congressional committee which made a junket to Hawaii last summer surely must have known before leaving -the U. S. mainland tlm the recommendalion iL just made lo the Senate and House was a foregone conclusion. , The committee advised that a proposal to admit ^Hawaii to the Union as the -19th state^ be deferred pending further study, and mentioned two reasons—"present disturbed condition of inteniaUopr affairs," and a possible plebiscite'. '-' The committee could have obtained the information which led to that rec- omiAemlation by reading v a few "disturbing" headlines in the daily newspapers and by live minutes' study in the Congressional Library. Hawaii was annexed by the United Slates in 1898 on Hawaii's own re- iliic-4, after four years of the republic which'-followed'the deposing of Queen Liliuokalani. In 1904 the islands were constituted as a territory and a govern- mcnt ; ;set up which consists of a Sun- ale ;aii'd a House, elected; and a governor and secretary appointed by the President of the United States. Those facts are contained in one paragraph; of the Statesman's Yearbook. An adjacent paragraph gives some figures. The estimated population of Hawaii in V 1935 was 38*1/137, including: ' Hawaiian*, 21,7t.-^f even disregarding the 2000 miles between Hawaii and the other states. Does the United States want that hctorogenous racial mixture with full statehood privileges? > And with that voting mixture, would the citizens of Hawaii favor annexation if Die matter came to a plebiscite, anyway? Part Japanese, 148,972. The remnifldci- ;u'e mi.scellaiiuous— thousands-of- Americans, Chinese and Filipinos, a smaller muViliei 1 of Puerto Ricjuis, Spanish, Russians, Koreans, British arid Germans. There'arc more Americans than Chinese, ninny more Japanese than both Americans, 1 and Hawaiiaus. ••'By-annexing Hawaii inlo a slato, I/no government, would presumably, be adopting as American citizens the mixed nic.CK of Ihc islands. Each one would have constitutionally free access into the 48 oilier states of the Union. In 193!) the voters of Hawaii numbered 71,168, of which 21,836 were lla- waiians' pi- part llawaiians, 12,588 AmeficHiis ami tlic remainder—a majority of '36,74-1—divided among other races. That leaves al least two pretty doubtful aspects lo the annexation idea, Britain s "Capitulation" The world picture; looks far from hopeful for the future of Democratic Kovcrn incuts after the tremendous events of the past week-end. Great Britain's sudden decision lo buy oil' Italy and Germany—and it can be termed little else—leaves the United Slates out on a limb, so to speak, mid probably means that llii.s country must once again withdraw into its shell and proclaim a policy of keeping strictly out of affairs on the other side of the globe. Adolf Killer's bra/en boast that ho means to protect German people beyond the borders of his country in the promulgation of their own political theories (in this case but one— Nazism) is as utter ;i contradiction of his own policies within Germany as any dictator ever dared to voice. We have the picture of Hitler ruthlessly stamping out all opposition to his own party within Germany, allowing not even the weakest of voices to be raised in protest against his policies and political course. Yet he boastfully warns the, world that German minorities' in other countries must be respected and'their rights .of political activity unrestrained. So it is with such dictators as Hitler and Mussolini that Great Britain has chosen to deal. 'Possibly Britain is only bidding for time in which to perfect her military and naval forces lo the point where she will feel 'fairly confident in again assiiihing the role as leader of the forces opposing dictatorship. . But'i( : is not the less evident that Great Britain has abruptly left the • Ignited States alone, with the cxcep- " tiph of an uncertain ' r ahd '. bitterly dis-.: ' appointed France, among the leading" nations which have consistently been arrayed against the Fascist slates in international affairs. Maybe Great Britain's Chamberlain has selected the best course and judgment cannot be passed loo quickly. But we in the United States have .counted upon Great Britain as something of a restraining influence against tlic alarming growth of the Fascist states and their philosophy of right and wrong/so peculiar lo our own beliefs. Now it seems that Greal Bri- lain has -. stepped aside.

Too ninny Sunrisers about. \Ve imisl get ciivny from Ihe \vater- fronl and buy civilian clothes before wo eal a mouthful." This they did. Later, as two civilians, they sat al a tavern table and tried to satisfy their half- islarvcd bodies without making themselves ill. When the meal had been eaten Jerry spoke. "Now I must go back to London, cross-country, and sec about Polly." "See here!" exclaimed Cabcll "It's a piece of madness. You'll be picked up again. There'll be a reward offered for us tomorrow mid London's where they'll post i first. If you're caught, it will meal Dartmoor i'r the hullis." "I'm goii;g up lo London," Jerry said. "Wait for me if you like." And ho -vent by the mornii slagfc coach while Cabell Bank gi-mhblingly wailed for him al ai inn. On Ihe night of the second day Jerry returned, grim and practi ml. "WollV" said Cabell. "Polly Chelsey left tondon fo Docer some days ago. Mr. Tob} the tavern keeper, said she hope lo cross the Channel and join he cousin's ship al Cherbourg. H couldn't tell me where lo look fo lier." "What did T tell you?" "That she'd be gone. That th trip would be useless. But 1 had to know, Banks. I couldn't have Could I trouble you to put your mind on it now?" "Yes," said Jerry, coming back to earth. "Well, there's a place between here and Deal known as Clitic's cove. Jean Clitte puts in there alter he's stopped at Corly, further south. . Clitte's cove is .where we must go. ... How are your feel?" IHEY agreed to sel out at once, A on foot. Somewhere in the cighborhood of the cove they ould wait for the smuggler to omc in. They might take lodg- ngs at a farmhouse, or, if this eemed incautious, they would ide out in a wooded ravine. Caell invested in a pair of pistols or them and in knives of a scrv- :eablc sort. Thus equipped and ith money in their pockets they ad no fear of starving. « They turned their laces sonth- •ard on the King's Highway vhere the road roughly followed he sea. A signpost pointed the vay to Deal; tlic road stretched evelly before them. The neccs- ity of walking, all evening and nosl of the night did not disturb hem. They were intoxicated with heir new-found freedom. After he long dark hours in a ship's icld il was rather like heaven to hem to see (he sky overhead and o feel the wind in their faces. They continued to be of that nind even after they grew tired. They had brought food with them, iind now and then they would crawl onto a stack of hay for rest like this for us?" 'It seems improbable," Call replied. "And yet ..." I And yet'there was a dory bc.| lowered away from the lugger E making silently for the cove. ! men'oared it. ... , "Come on," Jerry said.

Once they were stared at suspiciously by a farmer in a carl, and questioned. And once they passed a hanged man dangling from a gallows, left there as a horrible warning to "All that'pick pockets ami live thereby." (So said the painted sign.) . . . Near midnight they hid in a copse as several men went past on horseback. Often the deep ruts and loose rocks sent them sprawling in the road, tearing their clothes and scratching their shins. But the going became even harder after they nid to leave the highway. When the road turned inland they kept to the shore, for the cove they sought must be recognized by ils relation to the sea. * £ S THIEY came upon il unexpected* ly, recessed in a curve of the .shore line.
