Interdependence Premier Stalin made a good speech <'<iid t\ heavU'iiing one on lhe occasion ''I' the iiiiniversfiiy of the Soviet revolution. H was sober, fanttml and statesmanlike, and much loss inflammatory than the writing in some of (.lie journals (hat reflect" his government's attitude. The Russian leader's latest address came at a propitious time as far as this country is concerned. It served as mi antidote to Izvcslia's unwamuUcd and unsubstantiated piece of the day before, which hinted at a "fake attempt" on Governor Dewey's life in a last-minute "Reichstag fire" attempt to rouse the public mind against American Communists. U tempered other intemperate comments on our political campaign in the Russian press. And it did much to counteract that strange tirade, also in <!, questioning the presence of American troops in Iran though no one knew better than t!ie Russians the sole reason for their presence was lo expedite delivery of American supplies to Russia. Perhaps one of the most heartening tilings- about Mr. Stalin's speech was his statement on postwar inter- .national policy, which sounded almost word for word like what we had been Hearing from both presidential candidates. When Jlr. Stalin speaks it is with the authority of the Russian state. //Thus there is comfort to be derived from his confident assertion that, a new, .•^ti-oiiE, peace-loving international organization "will be effective if the trreaf powers which have borne . . . the niaiii burden of tlie war against Germany, -will set in future also in the spirit of unanimity and accord." And, |Siich being the ways of diplomacy, there may be great future significance in his reference to Japan as "an. aggressive nation." But what might be of greatest long- range importance (at least for Americans) was .Mr. Stalin's stressing- of Allied interdependence, his ready admission that, while the second front could not have .succeeded without the Russian bulwark in the cast, neither could recent Russian .successes have been po.s- '; sible without the full-scale offensive in the west. We Americans are prone to forget thai obvious interdependence. Some of us seem terrified of hurting Russian feelings, and are so ovevsolicilious as j£t> blandly accept Soviet attacks on one (if our political parties. Allied interdependence will not wiili victory. The help, leadership and good will of this country, perhaps the worfd's strongest, will be indispcnsible. j Thai being .so, it seems neither isolationist, subversive nor anti-Russian to ' ask why we not honestly question Russian diplomatic policy on occasion even i while we admire Russian courage and !' virtues, and why we cannot conduct our own domestic., affairs without feeling apprehensive. , Sweet Home? Regimentation is an overworked bogey, but a situation lias come up in which it seems proper to rear rc>;iiucii- lalion's ugly head and scare the daylights out of everybody while there is time. In the latest issue of "Tomorrow's Town," put oul by the National Committee on IJotisinff, there j K (| lc suggestion by a California architect thai (he planning of a house is not (he business of an amateur (moaning the unimportant creature who is merely going to build, pay for and live in (he dwelling) but of- a professional. There is the further suggestion that the KIIA give preference to professionally designed houses in insuring home loans. We hope this idea doesn't make any headway. Planning one's own house is, like parenthood, one of the chief reasons for and joys of domesticity—-though fewer people achieve it. Those who do usually employ professional help. Hut certain creative artists can do their own planning, enjoy it, and do it well. For them we speak. Can it be that we arc coming to Die point where.a man's home is not his castle unless the turrets and battlements bear the professional's stamp and the Federal Housing Administration's QIC? Will the desire for an enclosed back porch become a matter of bureaucratic concern? If so, let us raise a howl before a new generation comes along lo whom the strains of "Home, Sweet Home" will be as meaningless as a jungle chant. Home Ties Mr. Churchill, who has spread more good will than the former Prince of Wales and traveled farther than Mrs. Roosevelt, is off again—this time to Paris. In the course of his travels he lias picked up more knowledge of world conditions than most of his fellow men could ever hope to know. Yet there is one condition prevalent in America which we do know about, and we suspect that it prevails throughout the world. On the basis of it we offer our explanation of why England gels to see as much of the Prime Minister as it does. He has to go home occasionally ( 0 get his laundry done.

It was Ginger. My heart began pounding ;iway like mart. 1 had deliberately been keeping away from her since that last scene in' Hogyio's apartment. "Can you come right over?" "What's the malter?" "It's Virgil. He's side." "Well?" : "He wants to see you." "I'm no doctor. 1 ' "Smarly. I know that." She certainly hadn't changed any. I was slilt sore, Ihongh, and her calling because of Jioggio didn't make me feel any better. "What's wrong?" I asked indifferently. "Those cramps." "There's nothing t cnn do." "Oh, Leo, he looks awful. Please come." "Boggio doesn't want me lo Conic. You wanl me to come. 1 ' "Is Ihcrc anylhing wrong with thai?" "You nccdn'l have pinned il on him. All right. I'll come as soon as I can." And I hung up. I gol there Ginger had already called a doctor. Boggio was propped up in heel, with beads of sweat glistening on his face. His eyes were wide open and staring, and he was rolling his lic.icl from one side to the other. "It's killing me,\ he muttered. "Slowly killing ii)fc." Then he saw me and ji$>Uonod that I should pull up a chair and sit down. His clammy hand seized mine. "You and Ginger," ho began, "you're my only friends. Nobody knows how badly I feel. The doctors don't know. They try to kid mo." Ho pulled his .hand away and stroked his middle. "It's in here. It's eating at me. Like this!" ]je slowly opened :md closed his list like a claw. "ICaling ;il my guls." He turned to me again. "Don't let me die, Leo!" I didn't knins- what to say. It was nil so incoherent and Boggio looked as it he were going lo bawl. I'd never fell such intense loalhing before. There he lay, wallowing in self-pity because, ot a lousy stomachache, mumbling about death as if it were imminent. I glnnccd at.Ginger. She was biting her lips, ,-ying lo hide her scorn. It was a relief when the buzzer finally sounded and the doctor came in. ' •' ; * 4 4 J-TE \vns a youngish man. earnest f and cfliciciil looking. After putting down his little black bag on the chair near the bed, he turned lo us. "Belter go into Die next room." We didn't need any urging. I slouched down on a divan and watched Ginger pour the drinks. We both had a stiff one and felt better. "Jerusalem!" I said. "He certainly goes to town with his third act <!il)cd scene." Ginger shrugged. Now that I was there she secmeil to have gotten over her fright. "tie's always pulling that." "Maybe there's really something wrong with him." ' "Wrong my fool! He thinks he's got a cancer but lhe only thing that's the mailer with him is nervous indigestion. There isn't a doctor thai hasn't told him thai." She warmed to her subject. "He's the crudest thing J know and yet he's a coward. He can dish it out but can't take it. Nothing makes him happier than the sight of suftering i£ he's sitting in the back row ..." "K that's the way you feel," I interrupted, "why do you slick with him?" "Search me." One didn't liavc to search vcry.V far.

He sighed with contentment and closed his eyes. •;••••-, Ginger took me into the other room.
