For Sanity in Art taken "tin: Confused iimsilciu 1 art will indorse the Society for HiiniLy in Art campaign (o destroy tlio "fsilse gcd.s" of. .surrealism, <l;u!;iisni and <-nb- jsni— whatever those three things are. Organized a year and a half ago by Mrs. Josephine Hancock l.oiptn of. Chicago, the society held its Ih'sl i;ei!or:il meeting recently in the art Ireiu-uire- cra mined home of Mrs. Logim on Chicago's Gold Coast. Well received was Mrs. I, Oman's statement Unit the public kindly to the campaijfn modernistic grotcsijncrie.s" which she said were pushing the real art from the museums and homes of America. The Rev. Preston Bradley 's declaration that we would have no trouble. finding .sane artists if we Hvx;<l in a sane world, and Burl on liolme.s' ne- cusatiun that modern artists are "too lazy" to learn to draw, also met with approval. All that is troiiiu pretty strong. Hut the average American citizen is probably of a mind to string along with the general objectives of the Society for Sanity in Art. Surrealistic painting is easier done than understood. Dictator Dignity One of the most amazing things about the dictatorships is the whaltar. maii 1 attitude ..the. dictators adopt to* , : \vard themselves.-.In the lifted Sjntes they would he laughed out of public life before they got started. But in their own totalitarian states the edict is that the Great Man is not to he a target.of the written, the drawn or the spoken crack—no matter how iiiiioc.jiil the intent. And everyone knows what happen when a dictator's edict is broken. The Great Men would like to spread the illusion of their magnificence all over the globe. They tried it not long a't'o /» Cuba when (he Italian and German ministers protested to the State Department against publication of caricatures of Mussolini and Hitler in the weekly magazine Bohemia'and (he newspaper Patria. The ministers described the caricatures as "insult- iiUf." But the Cuban courts dismissed the complaint. It is gratifying to know that canVa- lurcB of Her,. Jm i ci . am i u I)(i , L . are not insulting. Some people think the only good thing about the dictators is the laugh to be had when a bright caricaturist decides to take them for a ride. War One of the biggest handicaps to World Peace has been the fact that war—at least the preview put on for the folks back home—possesses a gla- mor that the abstract idea of peace lacks entirely. The brass buttons, the shiny metals, the well-tailored uniforms all make young girl'n luwls go thump thump, women's eyes grow misty and men's chests swell with (•ride of country. There is something about a soldier. And so the news from London that I ho uniforms the Hrilisli war office is trying out look very much like something a garage mechanic would put on before tackling a very messy job (wnc.s ar. a welcome hit to those who think war is a thing to |, G avoided—even if lluit means missing „„(, OM a | H - C Ky Rood shou- HS the buys march away to get I heir heads blown of)'. The Hrilisli soldiers ttre modeling two new types of uniform, both made of denim ami both looking like overalls. Adoption or either uniform would make Tommy A Ik ins an unromantic Hjjurc indeed. Thai would be good. The sooner war is completely debunked and dcglamorized the sooner this unhappy world will know peace. Denotiomeni.

"I could not have imagined such luxurious comfort in so confined a space. 'The sunset wa s magnificent this evening." ... As Constance read, she began to /eel chilled and very tired. Every word seemed to carry Derek far (to :mci farther away from her. . . . "Some day, after I've painted Ihe portraits 01 the whole CaliJoniin Gold Co;isl, we'll buy us a plane, and I shall paint sunsels from above the clouds for the rest of my days— with you beside me lo hold my brushes, darling. "Perhaps," she read en, "we shall be even happier after this brief separation, than we had dreamed possible before. And believe me, darling, Ihe delay will be as brief as human devising can make i(. As soon as we are settled at the ranch, I shall begin to pave Ihe way for your coming. "Meantime, I kiss your bands and your eyes and your mouth, Derek." Constance read that last paragraph four limes. Then, catching a glimpse ol herself in Ihe mirror before her, she dabbed at her eyes and thought, I mustn't do (his. What will the aluminum dowager in the unspeakable hat think if I march in to lunch with a red nose and bleary eyes? For the first lime she began (o consider the problem of her costume for that luncheon with the wealthy Mrs. Major. Miss Taft had said that she must look her smartest. And most of her smarter, clothes were already packed. There remained at hand only her wedch'ng dress, the tailored pin-stripe suit, the gray knitted dress, and the bouffant gray coat. It seemed a sacrilege 1o put on one of these. But after nil, Constance thought a little grimly, just now that job with lilrs. Major was bread and butter. "THE weather had cleared, but it •*• was chilly. The pin-striped suit would not be warm enough. Afte.j a.'struggle, Constance put on a gray. ha'ndTkiiilfoci dress, cipcn- sively warm and soft as a cloud. It had just the right air of informality—a deceptive simplicity combined with a tricky smartness, She could wear it with the DOCTOR cherry hut and bag and her old gray squirrel jacket. . , . But, no The squirrel jacket had gone to (he cleaner, and had not-yet eome back. . . . Another $5 when it does, Constance thought. She must have that job. She smoolhcd gray silk stockings over her slim ankles and put on gray suede shoes and the perl cherry colored hat. Then, in the end, she took down (he bouffant gray coal which had been her greatest extravagance, with the swirl of fur about the hem and (he soft flare of fur at the neck. It buttoned closely up at the throat and fitted sweetly over her shoulders and full yoi«B breasls. Picking up the cherry bag she went out into the crisp air, swiftly, before her heart failed her. Daimler's was only five blocks from her apartment, she decided to walk and let the cool air Ian her tear-fevered eyes. Before she reached the canopied entrance to Daimler's, she began to feel, in spile o£ herself a definite pleasure in the fluid ripple of the soft fur above her ankles. It was nice to he well dressed, even when your heart was breaking. Daimler's v/as the most expensive restaurant in the city. Constance had gone there sometimes with Derek . . . "it pays to go where you can be seen by the first people," Derek had said when Consignee had suggested a more modest place. Constance knew that the alacrity with which (lie doorman, who looked like a glorified rear- admiral, sprang to attention at her approach was an involuntary tribute to the plutocratic exclusiveness of the gray coat and cherry accessories. AVJien she spoke her name to the girl at the reservation desk just inside the door, the girl smiled briefly and said, "Miss Maidwcll? Of course. Mrs. Major sent a nole for you." She handed Constance a square cream envelope. Constance sat down in a tapestried armchair to read the note. "My dear Miss Maidvell," Mrs. Major had written, "I am so sorry to be unable to keep our appointment today. J am, as it happens, unpleasantly confined to my bed. "However, although I am unable to be present, I hope you will still be my guest.. You will find a fable reserved; and the mailre d'hote! has mslruclion.4',16^ serve you whatever you careVto order for lunch:-' • ' , "Now as (o the object of our 1 meeting.

"With best wishes for your success, I am very sincerely yours, Marcia Major." * * * rONSTANCE sat for a moment, turning the note over and over m her fingers ... "I am passing on your name . . . suggeElmJ . . . with best wishes—" not tooA promising . . . Well, Constance decided a litllc grimly, I might as well get a lunch out of if, anyhow. This was the busy hour—but Mrs. Major had reserved a table. As Constance looked about her for the muitrc d'hotel, a round dark litllc man with a Vandyke beard caught her eye and signaled her towards an empty table near the edge of the stage. . . . Js'o doubt the girl at the desk had signaled him (hat Mrs. Major's guest had arrived. Moving toward the lable, she found herself hailed by (lie lei-surely progress of a smartly- dressed young woman in the aisle ahead of her. Glancing at her, Constance was surprised to see Ibal she was wearing a long velvet dinner dress with a silver cocktail jacket. Doesn't the girl know it's still mid-day? Constance thought. Oh, well, 1 suppose it's new, and the poov thing just had to wear it somewhere. As she stood waiting for the girl lo finish a brief conversation, with someone at the table ahead, ( she glanced with some complacence down at her own eminently correct ensemble. " Looking up, she c^jght the eyes of a man fixed upon her from a nearby table. There was something vaguely familiar about the man; he was youngish and broad, with sandy hair inclined to be red, and—of course! He was the man who had almost knocked her over outside Derek's studio the day before. His singularly alive brown eyes, now cooly amused, said as plainly as words, "Well, well! The little- girl rather fancies herself in that gel-up, doesn't she?" Constance was furious with herself for flushing. She was turning away with What dignity she could retrieve when a plump eldertyjady who sat at the table with therimper- tincnt young man leanedatoward her and asked pleasantly, "Will you please tell me the prict' of that coat?"
