THE WORLD SITUATION The world situation, n 1937 opens, presents the notions of lh tllohe rnt!Kinn in a frverinh racr to strengthen navies, build up armira, increase air corps and bolster reserves of finance and economy. There are few persons so simple as to believe that this is a de-pelopmrnt in the interest of peace. However, it would probably be a mistake to accept the idea thai it spells inevitable warfare. The pas year witnessed just such activity and, in spile of it all, the peace of the world was maintained among the leading nation! if not in Ethiopia and Spain. There are dangerous spots today, where a little flame might mean a world conflagration, but the hope exists, at least, that the nations will manage to muddle through and eventually reach a ratisfactory settlement of their pioblems.

The shot la for the picture, "Slim", and Pat O'Brien and Henry Fonda are among the power linemen who'll try to make repairs In the blizzard. Director Ray Enright orders the doors of the stage closed. He signs for the storm to begin. With a roar of wind machines It does. Gypsum snow, dumped from the catwalks, la caught by the blast. The air la filled with the swirling particles. The repair crew roll up In a truck, Jump out Men yell to each other, atari to climb a tower. In the story, a cable is supposed to break and fall across a high tension wire. This la tlx signal for the electrical display. It comes with a crackla and a hiss. The arcs throw blinding flashes. Fir streaks along wires fused beforehand with powder. Sparks leap. It la ona of the most exciting effects I have ever seen. When tha wind machines ar out off, the air Is stilt full of- flying snow. Stage doors are opened. We pile out. And with us come several last-minute visitors who did not bundle up for tha storm. The hair of ona of the women Is full of the gypsum.

"No, I didn't know it" She had to keep her voic very low to keep it from breaking. Afterwards, when eke spoke to Donald about it he was angry, called Dr. Whiteley an interfering old fool, and told her to stop stirring up trouble. And when she wept he comforted her,. and joked, ana told her it waa nothing, She didn't quite believe him, but the few days in bed did him so much good, and lie looked so much better, that she was tempted to. She worried. She worried about him, and the bills and the $50 she had given Gene Dubois, and most of all she worried about Gene himself. For how could she be sura that he'd really gone Bouth, and how did aha know how long he'd atay, and what he'd ask if he came back again ? But in spite of the worries that buzzed around her head like mosquitoes, irritating, aggravating, sometimes stinging her to a fury of pain and fear, she was happy.

We hasten to advise all readers of The Daily Clintonian nol to give too much attention to the perplexing mysieiies of the universe and the manifold misbehavior of mankind. Time is rather important and it is more sensible to give such thought as you have available to the solution of the problems affecting your own life and within the range of your own capacity to correct. There arc many men and women who swing through life with the idea that there is nothing to bothei about, that what is will always be and that somehow the family will take care of itself. While this philosophical calm might be comfortable it is not entirely sensible. It would be much better for people to concern themselves with the development of their own personalities, the solution of questions raised in their daily touch with others and attempt seriously to fit themselves in the day and age in which they live. There is no magic formula for accomplishing this. Each man and woman, each boy and girl, have different problems and must arrive at the goal through various methods. Your method might not be the same as that adopted by another and yet both may seek the same destination. Try to make progress yourself and encourage others to do the same. It is the way to live.
