CHINESE GENERAL EXECUTED. The announcement from Chungking, China, that General Chank Tep-Seng, commander of an army, has been executed for dereliction of duty, may strike some Americans as a strange proceeding, but, nevertheless, gives a good idea of the determination with which top-flight Chinese are prosecuting the war against Japan. The General was convicted by a court-martial of having allowed a commanding and Attinfift Are Topiis. Stressing the idea of b-adT-ship In evan-lim, Dr. Bert E.

It was the town's greatest fault. They looked back, not forward. They talked about what the place had been rathei than what It was going to be. They were proud of how old Talbot was For herself, Mrs. Reynolds was tired of oldness. She wanted youth. She didn't want to remember things. She wanted to feel that she had found new youth, as the old earth had, now it was spring. Mrs. Horton was cheery as she stopped the wheel chair in front of Mrs. Reynolds' house. A little ramp had been built up to the porch. Two or three ladies helped push the chair up, making rathei a fuss about it in a laughing way. Mrs. Horton patted the invalid shoulder encouragingly. "Here we are, back home," she said. "I'm sure you're glad. You must be worn out "Nonsense." It was erne of Mrs. R e y n o 1 d s' favorite expressions when she was annoyed by some dull remark. "Why should 1 be worn out? I've just sat while you pushed." "Oh, I know you've ben brave about it- Now you'd better go in itself, and another to exhibit some recalcitrance when the worse that can happen is a courtmartial and the knowledge that the matter will probably become a political incident. FOR OUR YOUNG PEOPLE. ' We think it advisable to call attention to the report of a committee on juvenile delinquency and crime prevention, recently delivered at the conference of the International Association of Chiefs of Police. Considering the problems of the postwar era, the special committee said : "The prevention of juvenile delinquency requires a total community effort to be participated in by parents, social workers, educators, clergymen, police, industrialists, labor leaders, business men and civic workers." There is no reason to believe that the members of this committee, police officers with experience, are wrong in their conclusions. They warn parents and the public that the problem ages will range from twelve to nineteen for girls and from ten to twenty-three for boys. New York Henry J. Kaiser, west coast shipbuilder: "Women are performing magnificently in industry, in the mil ple. We go on forever. I' must be the air here." Mrs. Reynolds thanked him sincerely. She felt sorry for Mr. Cook, who had lost his wife who had been her friend. Talbot never seemed the same in summer without Trixie Cook sitting on the porch fanning herself and exchanging laughing comments on heat and mosquitoes with anyone who passed t-y. Mrs. Cook was dead and Mr. Cook looked like a ghost of his former jovial Self, but he still subscribed to the tradition that Talbot people couldn't be killed and went on forever. How fond they all were of the old story that went back to Revolutionary times, about the corpse brought to Talbot to be buried which had come back to life and settled down in the place. The air had brought the dead back to life. The air made them go on forever. At least the story went on forever, although severa' other old people had died during this last hard winter. Only the young didnt die. They went away. And they didn't come back- ' The little procession moved on. Jane Dorset came out of her Town Shopr to offer congratulations. Miss Molly, the old postmistress, came out of her little house and kissed Mrs. Reynolds, aaying, "You look w-lendid, Eunice. I'm sorry 1 son and Mary Crossetto, at supper. Sunday evening. f .'.1 pushed forward, what was a skipjack to them, or a bug-ey or any of the other special Chesapeake sailing vessels that were so rapidly disappearing? Mrs. Horton said it always was blustery on that corner, even on such a fine spring day as this. That seemed more important when it was only spring and not summer. It was so easy to take cold. So Mrs. Reynolds felt herself thrust forward, not only mentally, but physically, since Mrs. Horton was pushing the wheel chair and thus could put decision behind her opinions of the weather. Mrs. Reynolds, who loved all kinds of boats, especially the old types that were rapidly disappearing, made no protest. She felt very much at peace with ei-eryone. They had all given her such a fine birthday party at the Inn. There had been a luncheon and then games and singing, and now they were all escorting her home. Such a fuss because she was 80. After ail, 80 was nothing in Tal-Cot or 90. either. People who stayed in Talbot grew old and lived on and c.T. Only the young went away and never returned.
