England Has a Lew to Pry Wilh al Last. It, 111 ay. not ho (.00 apparcnl ;tl first glwKi', but Germany's llmisl at Austria miff hi turn out to be Ihe brightest, hope for world poucc; in many months. • Most imporlHiil in the vmltfo sui'li a move gave Great Hrilain inlo Ihc Home-Berlin (iind '1'okio, i!' you wish) combine. The oiiemiii; must have been (he answer to an Englsli c)i]>)oii«il.iu prayer. For Germany's annexation, tiBurpation, or dominance, as you will, of Austria is a delinilc threat to Italy and to Mussolini's plans for a place among (he world's leadens. With Germany dominating Coital ICnrope, Mussolini has his choice of becoming another tail to the Uciehslaj? kite or of. breaking with .Adolf Hitler. Knowing 11 Duce's ambitions, it isn't possible to picture him just a part of Hitler's )\K- suw juiz'/.lc. England gave up Anthony liile.n as a .sacrilice to the Italian pride, and (lie sutfilcn H ;t Io-British amiability looks like the beginning of the end for the Home-Berlin axis. What will happen • if Hitler carries out his throat to take over Czechoslovakia is something else to consider, but it looks now like a .safe bet that Mussolini won't be an ally, whatever other course he nmy choose for Italy. . ..Mussolini wants primarily to, become a Mediterranean power, right up therewith England and France. He can noy- er achieve (hat aim b.v dinging to (!cr- many in the present Central European tangle. For Mediterranean equality he has shown signs of being willing to relinquish certain Spanish advantages which arc 'merely potentialities, anyway. Of course, how long Mussolini would be willing to keep hands off Spain after his diplomatic and Mediterranean aims were realized is another problem,- but at least the Spanish war might be ended if Italian troops were withdrawn. % Germany, with Italy gone, would find herself with a few half-hearted Central •European allies and Japan. Whether Hitler and the German people would want to put enough faith in Japan's •friendship' and dependability to cling to a Berlin-Tokio alliance scem.s dubious. For one thing, each nation feels' it is a chosen people. Two chosen peoples wouldn't' get along very well, and there is always the racial angle to consider. So Germany might find herself forc- ed into an agreement with England and France in spite of herself. Which would leave Japan facing a united disapproval, or perhaps that's loo idealistic. All of which would leave the .United States sitting over here amazed and a little confused, as we always seem to be at the machinations of intricate internationalism. We wouldn't have a finger in the pic anywhere, because we've been sifting back haling people --especially dictatorships.

Jerry warily slationed lliem in the boats with oars in their hands, each matched by an American oarsman, with another pair of lu's men to guard the boat. And so the transfer was made fi'oin ship to island without loss ol life. This accomplished, the May Queen, and the Gray Gull put to sea again and sailed we:r. That way lay home. Though there IlirKtl of storms, good weather held, ;.nd this was fortunate. Both snips were lightly manned, and or, board the May Queen bruised bodies and blackened eyes..were prevalent.

There was only Cabell Banks to dispute his ownership, and Cabell had spoken Ciibcll had stood in the presence of both crews just before they left the island and said: "Captain Whi^fiold boarded Ihc May Queen against my advice and without my assistance. She is his. I have nothing to do with her, except to share the cargo according to agreement." Because of the cargo the two captains were proceeding logethei now to an American port. They wished n court of admirably to pass on their prize in order thai all might, ue legal. And .'-o for Ihe second time the> put in al Wilmington for matters of busincfs. They learned nov lhat privateer skippers needet sharp wits, for (lie cargo Ihey hac on Ihcir hand-, was rich and ex lensive. Dealers were in par from cities as far away'as Nev Orleans and New York. The lw< young seamen were no match fo Ihesc crafty gentlemen, and so their goods went for less lhan it was worth. Yet satisfaction prevailed. Cabell was able to pay his debts and restock the Gray Gull for a long cruise, besides laying by a tidy sum in the bank against another barren season. Jerry was able to buy provisions without stint for the big Mpy Queen and to engage a larger crew. The sailors received their prize money hilariously and swore allegiance. * * * QN Ihc night of departure from Wilmington, Cabell and Jcrjff sal in Ihe Gray Gull's cabin at'. enjoyed a last talk. They were,, going their separate ways, CabeH across the Atlantic again, Jerry to Connecticut Io sec PolJy. "It's a thing I can hardly believe," Jerry said. "Me going to Polly at lust.

Polly's sensible. She'll lake it all right." . v And so in their large masculiije way they disposed of the matter of a mere letter, shook hands, swore eternal friendship, and ?arled.

This monslrous game kept up for a fortnight. And then one day the May Queen's lookouts reported that the gadflies bad parted company and only one remained. Jerry went to mcqtUhis ship in combat. And so they tesled Ihc May Queen's long iguris. ' There w;is bloodshed, and five of Jerry's men were buried at sea, but there was victory loo.
