Naturally, if they want to pay what they owe, the way to do it is to make a start by sending some cash. Bui, it seems. tW is another little matter invclved, both nations want to be sure that it they pay they will be able to borrow some more money in ihir. country. Italy needs cash for expansion in Ethiopia and France, fcarinr; another war. wants to be in a position to get financial help on this side of the Atlantic. Such being the facts, we advise readers not to expect any great reduction in the national debt from the payments made by the debtor nations. sweetheart, lien uuooia, wno promptly breaks her heart by forbidding her to speak ol their loee to anyone. He goes to the city without bidding Christie goodbye. Crushed at first by Gene's seeming desertion of her, Christie feels better when eh receives a letter and sentimental poem from him. Aunt Nettie, Adolphus' second wife and Christie's late mother's sister, re-turns from a trip with her daughters, Isabella and Adele. Christie dors not care for Aunt Nettie but tries to hide her feelings. As to the girls,' she does not pretend to like them nor they her. The summer passes with Gene's letters growing further and further apart. Gens told her he was studying nights and Christie tried to convince herself that she was glad he didn't writ, for it meant he was working for their future. In Honolulu, Adele met young Dr, Latham. Shortly after their return. Aunt Nettie suddenly developed a sinus condition. At her suggestion, Adolphus decides to close the old house and mova to Piedmont. Christie becomes listless and her father, not knowing about Gene, worries about her. Thinking she needs change, ha aenda her to a fashionable school in th east. CHAPTER IX The car gathered speed. They passed through the old mining towns with crumbling adobe and iron shutters, their ancient grass and rose and poppy overgrown burying grounds, their aroma of dusty romance. Now th rocky canyons were passed, they wer on the whit highway speeding past th low, rounded hills, the coIot of honey in the afternoon sun. They passed small speeding ears filled with slick haired Filipino boys, moving from one cannery to another, passed pear orchards where unpicked fruit lay rotting hi golden wast on the ground, passed little) towns with neat stucco houses and shady lawns, passed hot dog stands, and orange-juice stands, and now they could smell th salt wind from th bay.

British officials in London, like the rest of the world, would like to know exactly what Berlin and Tokyo agreed to in their recent collaboration. Like the rest of the world the British dismiss the drive against communism as the real subject of the accord. In England the belief is heard that the two nations have agreed to five separate spheres of influence in the Dutch East Indies, with Japan's superior rights recognized in Dutch Borneo and Celebes and Germany's sphere fixed in Sumatra and Java. If you will get your map and look up these islands, then Singapore, where the British have a huge naval base, you will see why England is interested. If you carry your map. study a liale further and look at the Philippine islands,, then the Mariana and Caroline islands, now Japanese, you will see where the United States might become interested.
