And that is very interesting, because it is barely possible that this » the most effective kind of resistance. I he Czechs were persuaded, by Bnlisn- French arguments and by circumstances 'not to fight for their country's independence. Whether that was a wise decision or not is hard to decide fouU y aiTthis time. But the fact that-military resistance was not made does not 'mean, apparently that the C/.echs vv.U not resist at all the Germamailion foi which'Hitler believes them destined. . 'Here are'some of the little things that are happening in Czechoslovakia, gathered together from many dispatches fronf that area: - In cafes and shops, clerks and waiters stand blankly when German soldiers or Brownshirts order anything. They pretend not to'understand. -• Many German patrons of such places have been victims- of a sudden clumsiness of waiters who spilled hot soup , over their .uniforms. If the soup-is not spilled, it may come to the.table so loaded with pepper • that the Nazis choke, or perhaps a bent -pin is found at the bottom of the howl all'a regrettable accident, ,of course, ' but irritating none tho leiis". 'A'Czech mayor, receiving a bill from the German authorities for food furnished the poor in the early days of the occupation, sent ( back a prompt ' bill' for iron railings removed from. ' barrack walls. . In Pilsen, acid was thrown on a detachment of passing German troops, " injuring no one, but staining the mu- * forms and causing embarrassment to the Germans. More than 100 were arrested. ' ' On Eduavd Denes' birthday, buttonhole rosettes flowered throughout the Czech territory, mute evidence that the republic is not forgotten. Statues of Czech heroes have been prominently decked with flowers. All these things can be very irritating 'indeed to an army of occupation. The; evident intention is to goad the Germans into frankly taking over Czerhoslovakia as part of the Reich. This, or harsh measures of suppression, would fiuther alienate foreign opinion. Many Czechs probably figure that, having lost their independence OUT OUR WAY anyway, they might as well go all the way, since Chechoslovakia as an integral part of Germany will be a gi eater handicap .than Chechoslovakia as n "protectorate." This sort of silent, stubborn, nonviolent but, exceedingly irritating attitude may in the long run prove a more . clTectivc defense of the C/ech republic ' than its army could have been. Protecting Pedestrians Motorists generally; linve accepted traffic regulation as inevitable. But pedestrians have not. The same man who when driving his car will stop foi a red light, will when walking dodge across the street relying on his own nimbleness rather than on the regula- lions. ••/ . It is just a quirk of human nature. Man plus car. accepts regulation; man alone insists on being free. But that is passing. The next step in cutting down the traffic'loll must be the regulation of the pedestrian, says a special committee of the National Safety Council which studied the question Last year three of every live persons killed in traffic accidents were pedestrians. And two-thirds of the 12,500 pedestrians killed last year were violating a traflic ordinance or com r milling an.obviously/unsafe act at the time. •'•••'' , rp . That makes the course clear. ine lime is coming,when pedestrians must obey traffic ordinances as consistently as drivers. . SERIAL STORY BRIDE ON A BUDGET BY'JANET'DCJRAN r'^' 1»3».
