It was something of a coincidence that a smashing victory over the Japanese should have been won almost at the time we were celebrating Navy Day in the United States. Pride in the achievements of our Pacific naval forces is at its peak, so the time is opportune to consider what we are going to do with our navy, now the world's greatest when peace arrives. If we follow custom we will pare it down to inconsequential size. We have done just that after every war in which we have engaged. But the greatest blow of all was dealt to the navy at the Washington disarmament conference during the administration of Mr. Harding. This president is associated with a lot of unpleasant memories. He may not have been to blame personally for all of them but it is pertinent to recall that, like Mr. Dewey, he talked favorably about an association of nations but did nothing to take us into the league, although the nation had been assured by GOP bigwigs that the best way to get us into the league was by electing Mr. Harding. Then, after taking no steps to insure peace, he acceded to a treaty under which, from foremost naval power, we dropped to second place. Theoretically we could have had parity with Britain, but with customary negligence we failed to build up treaty strength. Under the treaty we scrapped 28 warships. It was a worse blow than the sneak attack at Pearl Harbor. Japan agreed to scrap eight paper ships, still in the blueprint stage. Meanwhile the Japanese feverishly constructed vessels under 10,000 tons which were allowed by the treaty: . Worse still we agreed not to fortify Guam and to refrain from strengthening fortifications in the Philippines.

He announced that there will be no church coming after me, her footsteps soft on the thickly carpeted stairway, round face lifted anxiously and faintly purple as she passed below a band of purple light from the stained glass window above the landing. When I reached the top of the stairway, Drue was already halfway down a long wide corridor which seemed to run the length of the house and was intersected once by a narrow corridor which seemed to go toward a servants' wing. Along the main corridor toward the north end of the house a man the workman who had met us at the train seemed to be sorting my bags from Drue's by examining the of thickness and padded quality In the place that made me feel no one was likely to hear our voices. She went quickly to the stairway and stopped and seemed to listen, looking upward. Her soft, green tweed suit was sleekly tailored to her slender, erect figure; her profile against the dark wood paneling wus clear and white, and her crimson mouth was rather set, yet obviously it was held so only by the strongest effort of will. Just then something happened that threatened it. For there was a tiny scamper of sound somewhere near, a pause and a silence which had a quality of the most intent observation.

Her solid figure was a sharp black end white against the baroque richness and coior of the hall behind her. She wore a white cap, as crisp and fresh as her apron. Her face was round and shone; her light straight hair was drawn tightly backward. But what I really saw was the look of frightened recognition in her china-blue eyes. She was not looking at me; she had given me the barest glance. She was looking at Drue, who came with me. I said, "We are expected," intending to explain that we, Drue Cable and I, were the nurses Dr. Chivery had sent for, but I didn't, for I had to follow the maid's look and I turned to Drue who stood beside me. As I turned, Drue took her hand from her mouth and said on a queer shaken breath, "Annal Oh, Anna, how is he ?" That and the look in Anna s eyes were my first indication that Drue Cable had ever seen or heard of the Brent family in her life. She had been extraordinarily silent and a little pale in the train that February morning; she had been extraordinarily determined that the second nurse (for they had sent for two) should be me, Sarah Keate; but she had not, that morning or ever, so much as mentioned the name of the Brents or the town of Balifold in the Berkshires and I knew her extremely well. Neither Drue nor the maid looked at me. Drue's words seemed to give Anna a kind of confirmation that she had, bewilderedly, needed. She dropped' an old-fashioned curl -y which billowed her full black sk.,t around her solid ankles. The look of fright, however, sharpened in her eyes, and she looked over her shoulder, backward into the depths of the house, and said in a low and distressed voice, "Oh, Miss! Oh, Madam, you oughtn't to have come here." ' know. Anna . . ." Drue put out both her sturdy little hands in her pi.-kin irloves and caught the maid's hands. "Anna, tell me quickly. Will he live?" He he I don't know, Ma'am. It only happened last night. Miss you'd really better go. Before they know." Drue took a long breath and said, "I hoped you would come to the door, you or Beevens. Anna, I'm coming in. What room is he in?" "His own room. He, oh, but. Madam" said Anna, on the verge of tears. Drue stepped inside the hall. I followed and closed the door behind me. for Anna was too stricken to move. There was a quick impression of a massive hall and stairway that was all dark wood paneling, and a floor made of squares of black and white marble; of high-backed chairs and long Italian tobies; of rich but subdued color in the tapestries and rues. Anna wrung her clean pink hands together, and Drue Faid. "It's all right. Anna. I'm a nurse, you remember: they sent me here to take cai-e of him." She too gave a quick look along cm depths of the great hall; there u-r iloors. solid ?labs of dark Tl more than 2,000 miles beyond its nearest base, we presented the Philippines to Japan with a stroke of the pen. However, it would be unjust to blame Mr. Harding for this treaty. The nation was yearning for Mr. Harding's "normalcy," as part of its emotional post-war debauch. After adoption of the Washington treaty and the Kellogg pact to outlaw war we seemed to think we had settled the peace of the world definitely and our naval strength reached its lowest ebb. Not until Mr. Roosevelt, a strong navy man, assumed office did we do anything about our precarious situation. In 1933 our building program was stepped up materially, and after the president's declaration of a limited emergency Sept. 8, 1939, we. began, under Mr. Roosevelt's stimulation, to build up the navy with some slight regard for reality. The entire point of this little sketch of recent history is this: Are we going to profit by the lesson it bears, or are we going wacky again and sink most of our fleet as a grand emotional gesture of peace? Prudence would seem to dictate that we hold on to the essentials of this gigantic force until we have helped to establish an effective United Nations, efective enough to establish a durable peace that will not require fantastic expensive moves to enforce world law and order. Sullivan Times. Pearl Harbor Admiral William F. Halseyr "We give grateful thanks for the turn of the tide of events which now is carrying the banners of decency forward overrunning the enemy's defenses pressing on the sources of hatred and oppression." London Prime Minister Winston Churchill: "We are moving forward surely, steadily, irrestibly and perhaps with God's aid swiftly towards victorious peace."

Our rooms then were to be where he left our bags, I made a mental note of the door ha opened and went along -the hall southward, in Drue's wake. Anna followed me. . Halfway along it Drue stopped. The hall was gloomy, for it was ft dark day with a tine, cold rain falling. But I could see her pause for an instant with her hand on a doorknob; then she opened the door and disappeared. The maid, Anna, who by that time was just behind me, said, "Holy Mother of God! But I could do nothing . . ." And wrung her hands again. Probably I had some idea of clariv fying the situation and my own confused state of mind at the aam time. For I stated my position then, in a loud clear voice. "You don't understand. I am a nurse. My name is Sarah Keate. Miss Cable is a nurse, too. Your local doctor, Dr.-Chivery, sent for us last night. I was sen$ here to nurse a Mr. Craig Brent. . . I stopped, for the maid didn't hear a word I said. She, too, opened the door and went into the room beyond and naturally, again, 1 followed.

Stood there for only a second or two, then Drue said with a break in her voice, "Sir Francis," and with a tiny rush of feet, a throbbing sound in its throat, the littie thing hurled itself across the great hall and toward us. . Toward u ? Toward Drue. It leaped into her arms and strove frantically, almost sobbing, to lick her face and her hands. It was a Yorkshire terrier, a tiny thing, his long forelock hanging down over his glistening eyes. Anna said, "He's never forgotten, Miss." Drue held the little terrier tight and put her face down against its little frenzied body for a long moment. Then she looked up the stairway and put her hand to her mouth again. It was no longer the firm resolute line it had been. She took a quick breath, and, still holding the little dog. started up the stairs. The maid made a futile, prohibitive move forward and stopped. Drue did not look back. So again I followed. And Anna finally followed me.
