World Lvdguu Might Try h-csli. Start The League of Nations as vistiiiliwil by Woodrow Wilson is, for all practical purposes, washed up. It was [|iiile helpless, as a matter of fact, long before II Ducc's Fa-cisl legions took their '10-year vengeance at Aduwa. For the League ceased to be of any value when if cease;! lo preserve UK: peace. The crucial question facing Europe ; ' aiu! the world now, therefore, is this: Shall the slate be wiped clean and a now League structure raised on the ruins of the first one? Great Britain'-.^ Anthony Kden believes, for one, that no time should be lost in shaping a new League covenant. There arc other statesmen who agree with Mr. Eden, but stress the point that the League without Germany, Japan, and the United Stales is a weapon that ciimiot be used again.U an aggressor without appalling risks. Still other diplomats coi'lentl Ihal a strong League is impossible until nations are armed adequately lo back up the collective aims of the IxAly. But whatever is diagnosed as the . real weakness of the League, the important thing for these European statesmen lo remember now is that it is slill not too laic lo talk peace. The Ltoijue. has been successful in many important- difficulties, and its failure in the Hftlo-l'Hhiopian dispute sllould /•''jiqtjnpan the, end of pacific gestures. •"••• The sooner these nations recognize the •''conquest of Kfhiopia as a deplorable, but accomplished fact, and proceed therefrom with a clean slate, the soontr will Europe approach the collective security its people pray for and its diplomats prate so much about. Kurope ha:; dodged lln>. inevitable for a long lime now, and only under the urgency of the Italian defiance on one hand and Herr Hitler's on the other have ils statesmen finally come oul lo lay their cards on the table. , Complete adjudication of injustices left by flic treaty of Versailles cannot be delayed longer. The colonial question, the war debts i-:suc, and the economics of post-war ICurope must be opened lo an enlircly new approach. The nations of the o'.'i world must learn to live with one another. "HS^IC Whether the 'existing .structure of OUT OUR WAY the League can be rcviuupcd to insure \n new colloeliv;e seen) ity, or whether Europe chooses to fall back to (he old and tricky .system hinging on (lie balance of power, is the important questioji now. Whatever answer Kurope makes is ils own responsibility. —Hruce Callou. U. S.

Certainly that »Uilnd« seems to prevail in Wasliingloii; it also is widely prevalent among Hie rank ant! lile of cili'/.cn:*. In oilier words, while we learned oin- lesson about Kunipeaii wars in J!)I7, we apparently have not learned it at all .so far as Asiatic wars are eoneernekl. We are almost l)«|?iiimiig to lake it for granted thai some day we are goiiiij to tangle with the .Japanese. Tho odd part nhoiil this is Ihal no one lias yet shown how we could possibly gain anything by getting into such a war.' \Ve liiivo a trade with China to pro- led, they .say? Sure—and its aii- JHinl value is just about what we would spend in two days of warfare. The Japanese, it is protested, have designs on the Philippines. Well, we're on our way out of those; islands. Tlie Filipinos wanted their imlcpcmU once and they're getting it. The Japanese are strong-arming (heir way to empire in Manchuria? Yes, they are; just as we islrong- armecl our way to California and the southwest; just as the British got. India and much of Sonlh Africa; just as all the great powers built up their empires. So what? • Is it any of our concern? ; Lcl us reali/e, once and for ( all, (hat there is no more reason for us to light in Asia than there is for us lo light in Kurope.

At least, she thought lie ilid, since ho had pronoscil to lier. The WK wlillo car Kneil over Hie lonely roail, and Hie sky hright- ened and hroke Into a (la me of color with (lie rising sun anil wakening world. Slill the two veide, huddled In their great coals, silent and fa- tiiineil, quiet wllh their separate tlinu^lils. Why liad shi> ever liccu afraid of liiin, I.inda wondered. He had Iiocn nice last night and now he v.-ii9 meek as a. lamli. And ho find pvoimsed to her. H had surprised her because Basil wasn't what b'!;o'd call n marrying man. It hadn't .surprised her In the least that he had offered her inamago instead of a less respectable i>ro[to- pilioii. f.inda was the kind of girl that men propose to. « * * rpHAT was nvoclsoly what nasil -*- r t'hf»rne was thinking in his ghim silDnco. Tho idea of marriage. a[)|iiillod him, but ho gruclg- ins;ly admitted that marriage to a plrl like Lindn was tho only acceptable \yay. The more he thought ahont it, I lie more reel it hecaino lo him. He. pictured the i:mocilli continuity of lite with Ibis well-bred girl. Ills menial pictures of their home life were drawn from a composite sorics-of. photographs and movie sequences. It was a conglomerate range of portraits; Linda In a flowing gown, pouring tea; Linda wllh flaxen-haired children i:i faultless English clothe* about her knee; Linda as the hostess at n modest dinner parly ot somo 300 guests. Ho went up several degrees In his own estimation. H thinking of It coubl do .Hint much to.him, ho needed her! She must marry him. Ho reviewed what he. frankly called his method ot attack. Linda was not like tlis ether girls he had known In Hollywood; ho couldn't dangle famo before- lier eyes. He must be gentle, charming and persuasive. And, railing lhat, ho had a powerful weapon. He -was not above using It. Meanwhile lie would content himself with n trial ot his first method. "I.inda," ho broke t':o Btlcncc, "I L'idn't ask yon to marry me be- oaii.w I thought It was Iho gallant Ililnt! lo do, I've been wanting to ash you since the first day we mot. "I'm not going to pretend lo you that Micro have been no other women in n»y life, but I'm going to ask ynn lo believe lhat you are Ihe first woman who has ever niado mo feel that I would want to live up lo her ideals." "Thank you, Basil." Linda dhln'l think lhat was s. very er.ti'iisiastlu response, but It the man would persist it v,-as just too bad. "I haven't very much io offer yni"—so ho wr/i still proposing?— "I don't mean money, of course." His expansive gesture of sweeping hand indicated millions -if dollars. "I am thinking of myself. I'm only an old duffer; clumsy, but I've got a heart, LinJa." * * * T INDA was very much bored.and entirely tired of this speech. "I haven't, ever bad advantages. My background wasn't Ihe sort that polishes the edges, but I have character and I hnve gotten somowbere In the world. A girl like yourself would be ranking no bad bargain.' Ho looked out of Iho corner of his eye lo sec bow lhat was going over. It wasn't, so lie trici! a new line. "I supnoso it will soi;nd funny to you, my dear, but I've always wanted a woman lo mother mo. My own dear mother died when i was a lit- tto chap. A man can grow up starved for Iliat kind of love, and few women ever appeal to him that way." "Fin sorry you think I am that ono woman, Basil," Linda replied finally. "I hope you are mistaken. Because there just isn't anything I can do about it. I don't love you and T can't marry you." She wished fiho could ^rSj'him that she loved Dix. .Cyas goi'nV to marry him, but'she was aff^lij'tjfal li she did, bo \voiUd deny.. IHx^ his chance, the t r ;ing that she had been working toward so hopefully. "Is there, someone else?" he asked with bis volco pitched at tho lowest dramatic level. Sho didn't answer becauso she didn't want lo lie; she smiled mid miickly, "('lease let's limi ofi Iho main road here. At nil cosb wo must avoid meet Ing (he others And, once moro please, liasll, will you promise never lo hreatlio word about this!"
