Progress by Embarrassment T The Russian government seems lo ~havo been embarrassed by .the UN Se- jicurity Council's consideration of (lie ^•Russo-Irnniini controversy. So Russia, *' through her obedient friend and neigh- ~boi', Poland, apparently is trying to i'embarrass the United States and Rrit- J'ain by calling attention again to -the ^continued existence of the Franco gov- * eminent, in Spain. '„ Russia's attempt will probably be ^successful. During tlie war the two nl- '-lied western (lemocnide.s played along . with Franco for understandable reasons i:of expediency. Since those reasons have '..".become invalid, they have made known . ..'their dislike of the Franco government ;'by a half-hearted and inefective invi- ;tation to the Spanish people to turn out the Falangist clique. Meanwhile Russia, France and oth- '. ei's have pressed for stronger mcas- ',lives. Now things arc coming to a ; head, as they were bound lo. A pos- :'.sible result is that the United Nations may be able lo establish a precedent as 'to what constitutes a threat to world '•pence and what constitutes interference in a nation's intern!)!-politics. There proven charges against 'Franco. He gained and held his power with the military help of the Axis. He was a fawning admirer of Hitler and Mussolini, and gave thorn considerable aid in World War II. He luul modeled his government along Axis lines, and is running a dictatorship of a cruel and repressive sort. But does that make Franco a men- -3ft^lp -irayld, peage ? Should the United .-.Nations'' take -active steps to remove i:him—j-cven though the Spanish people, .given a .free election, might astound 'the world, by voting him continuance in -.power, as the Argentine voters did . Pei-on ? .". There is good reason to answer yes ; to both those questions. The Spain of ^Francisco Franco is a menace to world - peace because, so long as it remains, -the fight against the Axis is not ended. .".World War II was a war between hos- I'.tile, incompatible ideologies, even "though we seem to have forgotten - that today. It was a war to rid the and his govern- world of the barbarian Hitler barbarous ideas of race and ment. ljut those ideas still flourish in Madrid. And so long as they do, Spanish soil is a dangerously fertile ground for the unfinished ideological war to break out again. Franco Spain also merits some punishment by the, victorious United Nations as an active, if feeble, Axis parl- ner. Spain's collaboration cost Allied lives and delayed victory. Her neutrality" may have been as much of an asset to Hitler as Italy's belligerency was a liability. These are all familiar facts, but they must be faced. And when they are faced and acted upon, there are many more (rouble spots in the world which must be dealt with before peace becomes a comfortable reality. All these trouble spots — India, Kgypt, Argentina, Indonesia, Palestine. the Balkans, and the rest — are an env barrassmenl lo one or another of the great powers. Mutual efforts to embarrass one's neighbors are not the ideal way to cure international nead- aches. Hut if they result in 'Clearing up Hie trouble spots, we cannot <|tian-t'l too strongly with the method. en for Business! TAYLOR Missing the Roots Congress has aimed a bill and James Caesar 1'etrillo of the American Federation of Musicians which is designed to stop "coercive practices" and "exactions'.' in the field of radio broadcast ing. '£his is another attempt to correct inequities in our labor laws by pointing a piece of legislation directly at an individual labor leader. The same thing was tried in the Smith-Conn'ally ai:ti-s'trike law. which had John L. Lewis as its target. Rut it didn't stop Mr. Lewis or anyone else from calling wartime strikes, and it's doubtful that the bill aimed at Mr. Pelrillo will fare much belter. In fact it was learned on lite day after the Senate passed this bill that Mr. I'etrillo was planning demands on the movie industry similar lo those outlawed in the radio legislation. Thus Congress has sawed off two limbs while missing the root of the trouble. If exactions and coercions are carried on, it is because our labor laws generally permit them. It would seem more sensible to eliminate the opportunities for such practices limn to punish individuals who take advantage of those opportunities and still remain within the- letter of the law.

Ann had gone to bed. Ann had gone to bed nnd hadn't kissed him good night. Hell!' what was wrong with Ann? It couldn't be meeting Millicent—she had known about Millicent belore, nnd had taken her existence with equanimity. It was too bad that he couldn't explain Millicent's presence in Port Drake to Ann, but he could scarcely tell her that she ad been brought there lo exert n ttle blackmail on Ann's behalf. 5he had done il rather well, too. Beulah had capitulated neatly, nd probably could be counted on be Ann's champion in the fu- ure. Colin was glad that he had remembered that Millicent had omething on Beulah. He didn't mow what it was, but it was apparently potent. What could have upset Ann so? He lay sleepless for a long vhlle, listening to Ann's regular jreathing. Finally he dropped o(T nto a dcKe, to be roused by a low moan from Ann's bed. In a moment he was awake, half out of bed, to find Ann fumbling with the light. He reached out and turned it on. "What Is it, Ann? What's wrong?" Ann stared at him, her eyes wide and dark in a face white as paper. "Something has happened to Jock—I have to go to him—" She was out of bed, and hurrying toward her clothes. Colin sprang up, and caught her as she swayed. Her body was. coU, and she pushed him away. "I have to go to him—something dreadful has happened—oil, Colin, I'm frightened!" sh* wailed. "Ann, Ann—be rcnFonni'ie. Nothing has happened tu Jcck. You've had a nightmare. Get into bed, child—you'll be ill—" "I must go-—it wasn't a dream. I letl you, something awful has happened—I must go to him—" Sh(: was fumbling with her clothes, dogged determination on he,- face, but her hands were trembling. "Ann—listen. I'll phone Jock. He'll probably want my scalp for getting him up^at this time oC night, but I'll plione him to prove to you he's all right. Then will you go back lo bed?" "Phone him," she said. /"^OLIN cursed himself for a fool ^ as he put in the call. Nina's voice answered almost immediately. "Yes?" "Nina—sorry to disturb you— this is Colin. How is Jock? 11 Kvej\ ns he said it, he realized how silly il sounded. "He'll live. I just got in from the hospital," Nina Enid wearily. Then, in sudden comprehension, "What do you know about it?" ' "About what? Sorry, Nina. I'm being stupid. 'What is wrong with Jock?" "He was in »n automobile accident. He had bocn drinking. There was a girl with him. She's dead." Nina's voice was toneless, repeating facts for Colin's enlightenment. "I'm sorry, Nina. Is there anything I can do?" "You might drive in tomorrow." "Do you want me tonight?" * "No, ('11 take a sedative and get some sleep. Good night, Colin." He liirned from the phone to Ann. "Jock will be all righl. He was hurt In an auto accident. I'll lake you in to see him tomorrow," he said soothingly. "Now will you go lo bed, Ann?" She seemed a little dazed. "Now I'll go to bed," she said docilely. Colin brought a g^iss of water and two small while tablets to Ann, and she took them unquos- tioningly. "Slay here, Colin," she said, reaching out her hand. He turned out the light and sal there, holding her hand. Soon she slept, but there was no more sleep for him that night.
