Russia's Old Ally A c.ehlury and a i[ii»i'k'v ago Napu- Icon retired from Russia, ilofoalcil not by the Russian armies but by a slronK- or, Ik'rcur, ami more inexorable foe— winter. Today the ama/ing Teal of fuiir Soviet navigators who (louU'd un (heir ice raft for eight nionlliH iiiul 1000 miles, finally landing safely on board a couple ice breakers, must be a com. fortih(j reminder to Russians of Uieir greatest ally. The New Russia i'ceis intensely the peril of attack i'rom both east and west. Despite its huge expanse of territory and its comparative remoteness, the Soviet Union fears, just as Uic old Cxaristic Kussia feared, a dual invasion. And that is why this accomplishment, of the four scientists must happily remind the Soviet military leaders that the tied. Army has powerful vemfpreemeiil in that old, inoviliiVjle ally—King Winter. , Speaking Of Oracles Debunking has come to be one of the world's' most popular pastimes. Great heroes are shown up as just ordinary folks with a touch of luck.

It isn't ciiough that we live in a modern mechanised, matler-of-fatt world of actualities. We can't even !ju allowed to believe in the delightful, fanciful romantic mysteries of the past Next Mt.. Olympus will be just a hill with a picnic ground and a bandstand atop it. . Bright Spot Contrary to the iialtintl assumption (hat children of the country's poorer classes went through terrible privation durins the depression, Dr. Albert Graeme Mitchell declares ih;ii children in the United Stales arc butter off phy- because of the lean years. Ur. : OUT OUR WAY Mitchell is head of the Children's Research Foundation of G'iiidiinati, and explains this securing paradox as follows: "Poor children have had much better wire during the last few years than al any other time during Dieir lives. The spotlight has been focused upon their condition ami .society as si whole has come to their aid, bettering their circumstances more than their parents would ever have been able to do unaided." Federal, state and local relief agencies, continued Dr. Mitchell, one of the country's leading experts on child disease, is assuring the nation of a hardier nice. College Flyers In .spilt: of the inililiirislic u^c in which WL- are living, there arc few people, probably, whu actually consider the U. S. army as a career, '['he army considers itself a career, though, and .so do a lot of young American college men, obviously. An intensive drive for the March 1 ctiiss at Hie Army Air Corps training center, Randolph Field, Texas, brought applications from more than 1200 .voting men. Seventy of these, all with the required two years or more college education, were aflmitted to liimj physical and flight tesls. Only 19 passed. Now recruiting >s i B i]. s arc up ou (j^ streets of eastern cities asking for more college-bred volunteers for the 21 places remaining in t|, e c | U!is . Aviation has always been considered a ranking branch of the army—and navy—both romantically and intellectually. H has attracted a higher grade of I'ccL-iiits. The fact that the government ha,s now placed a requirement of two years' college education on enlistment is plain proof of the army's intention of keeping its dying' branch composed of men who can conceive orders as well as carry them out.

Ho was forced lo cull his newfound patriotism inlo play to dispel his malice.

Take Prudence Winthrop now. She could talk about other things than the ialcsl dance figure. TERRY and Cabell supposed the " most direct way to reach Washington would be to sail up Ihe i'olomnc.
