While the effort to agree upon a program to regulate post-war air traffic, now underway in Chicago, does not seem to be reaching a speedy conclusion, the chances are that the effort will make progress and that, eventually, some plan will be devised acceptable to most of the nations. The British Minister of Civil Aviation, Lord Swinton, calls attention to one phase of the question that disturbs smaller nations. They fear that a country with a great fleet of transport planes would be in a position to launch a surprise attack with airborne troops, as the Germans did in Poland in 1940. Because airborne divisions can capture cities and countries and bombers can formerly married to Craig Brent. I caught my breath so hard that I nearly choked myself trying to conceal it.

"I remember," said Peter lluber. "He read it to us." Maud's black eyebrows were pinched together. "I remember, too. It was about the arrest of some enemy aliens, some Bund members." No one had seen it since, however, or if so did not admit it. I got to Alevia and said. "I'm sorry, Ma : in. We shall spare your feel i i .

"But how did you happen to find him? You were upstairs in your patient's room, weren't you?" I had seen it coining but was still unprepared and it put me on what I believe is culled the spot, If Peter lluber hadn't seen Drue with me, leaning over Conrad Brent but he had.

While this is true, it is a reason for world collaboration for peace, rather than the restriction of the development of civil aviation. We doubt if any plan can be devised which will prevent large nations from possessing such a superiority of transport planes as to make possible the sudden and overwhelming invasion of a smaller state. The safety of these smaller nations, it seems to us, depends absolutely upon an existence of an international force, ready and able to assail any nation guilty of unprovoked aggression. tnr the nrrnril nL' In .Mrs .

Just the same, the country can hardly afford to lose the valuable service that is made available to society through the education of men and women in the liberal arts. As someone has pointed out, a technical education only fits an individual for specific work, whether engineering, medicine, the law or something else. The purpose of a liberal arts college is to give the student a completely rounded picture of the world in which he, or she, lives, and to develop the power of intelligent thinking. m'm is-wm 1 irV sent were: .Misses .Miiareu in,u. : Dorothy Parker.
