Already it has spread over two floors and a half of a handsome oflice building less than a block from the White House and a couple of dozen stenographers are whacking away at their machines There were boys on the party and music and gayety. It was like the good times that Linda used to have before Calvin Bourne killed hirpself, and that there all day long. part of her life came to an end. Once more Linda had breakfast in bed and sat up far into the night, listening to gossip with Wilda. She danced, played golf and joined in the infantile games old American tradition dreams about the great things that were about to bo done in our country. But if this has been a great gain, it has also carried with it the seeds of great risk. When many hopes arc aroused, it is inevitable that some of them must be false ones.

Dix did not love her and he had moved summer. A fine library is being built up and Dr. Olin G. Saxon of Yale, chosen by G. O. P. Chairman Henry Fletcher to head this interesting .experiment in research for a political party, indicates his expectation that the "brain trust" will be a fixture and not a mere flash in the pan for the campaign of 1936. The only ripple in the ointment is a disquieting indication that Dr. Saxon and some of the other brain trusters may insist on being scientific rather than political in their work. This suggests the horrible fear that Republican brain trusters may get along no better with Republican politicians than Democratic brain trusters have been getting along with Democratic politicians. PLETCHER tossed a party the other night so some of the hard-boiled congressional Republicans could meet Saxon and his first assistant, Prof. Niies W. Carpenter. The politicians now fear the worst. Carpenter turned out to be little better than a liberal and compulsory Military Training bill which will be placed on the out of her life.

If the vote of the students' fees bill last January is any criterion there will be about charge of speeding up and down Connecticut avenue at 70 miles an hour.

Japan was doing this, that, or the other thing In China and Manchuria; Japan was refusing to cbide by the Washington treaty; Japan was fortifying mandated islands In the Pacific; some day Japan and the United States would get together and fight it all out. That was the burden of most public references to Japan in this country. And since cultivation of an attitude like, that is a necessary prelude to war, it all had a pretty ominous sound. put of late the keynote seems to have changed. We are beginning to hear talk about co-operation instead of talk about rivalry. Someone seems to have 'remembered that Japan is one of our best customers in the matter of foreign trade, and that fixing to fight your best customer is about the poorest known way of promoting a trade revival. The recent argument "over Japanese exports of textiles lends point to this matter. Japanese textile mills have been working overtime. They have sent finished goods into such traditionally English markets as India and China. They have sent them to South America, where both British and American mills have done business; of late they have even begun to send them into the United States itself. This has led to protests, and the protests have led to a re-examination of our trade relations with the Mikado's empire. about 50,000 super-patriotic mili Pretty man Estate $15,000, Porsnnnl nrnnprlv vnlimH at Pete was at the train.

There were tho concerts given by a local symphony that they drove miles to hear, sitting Now the Japanese foreign office points out that, whatever the Japanese mills may do with their finished product, they at least buy most of their raw material from American producers. During recent years, for instance,, America has sold approximately $100,000,000 worth of raw cotton to Japan annually. These sales constitute the largest single item in America's agricultural export trade. Last year the United State's sales of cotton of Japan outvalued the total of all Japanese exports to the United States. In this connection it is worth remembering that Secretary of State Hull and Foreign Minister llirola last year exchanged letters agreeing that there is no good cause for friction between the nations; and it is also noteworthy that the Japanese arc anxious to conclude a new treaty with the United States working out a non-competitive basis for the foreign commerce of the two countries. olumns of news she turned out dailv. worked anxiously with the!"" a hillside in the cool sweet ail- fpilB other niglit a crooner sang, "Lr-t's Face the Music," which sccnietl Ironic, coming from him. a To anyone tt io recently visited Pittsburgh, anil teas vnanarc of the flootl, the first mental reae-lion must hare been: "7Vic cam fwtiffii i off!"

(Conyrlsrht. ISSii 'NBA 8orvlc Inc.) felt. . , For she had only Pete and her letters from Dix. The letters wore few and like water one dreams one is drinking when one is thirsty, it did not quench the thirst. Dix was in Rome. He was studying with Gactano. He thought he would try for a singing role in a London production. Opera took too long. He had met some amusing Russians. He hoped she was "having a good time." That was all. No more of coring for her. No mention of that last night. No word of the future. And yet Linda wrote her heart out to him and then tore up the letters. But finally her loneliness and love for him came to dominate her letters and on a cold bleak day, one of those October days that flaunts the coming death of the season, there came a letter from Dix in answer to hers. "We didn't know what we were talking about," he said. "It was only a few months ago, but it seems like years, Linda, and 1 think that we were caught up in an emotional wave with my leaving and all that. 1 suppose you feci the same way. We've been apart now for a long time. You have a job you like, and I'm in this music tiling pretty deep. It isn't fair to either of us to be bound to anything as vague as my future." It didn't matter what else he said. He didn't intend to come back to Linda. The letter Linda burned, but not before she knew every phrase by heart and every phrase weighed on her heart like stone that pressed into her and surged up The Spiralcrtor EASY Washes U 50 .

The fact that the student lied about his -health or that the medical examiner winked at the alleged physical defects did not appear to be in the least discordant with good ethics. When the second student was asked how he stood on compulsory military training the emphatically replied. "1 think every .student should be allowed to decide that for himself. 1 did not want to take the military training and 1 did not lake it." When asked how he evaded it he said. "1 went to the doctor and told him 1 had flat feet, he therefore gave me a certificate excusing me from Hie training. Shortly thereafter a number of other sludents also developed flat feet." This young man was eager to sign the petition. There you have it. And still you, and some others, thinks it is more important to keep some fake regulations on the books than it is to inculcate a high degree of morals among our cituenry. If space permitted wc would like to comment on your other points. Perhaps later you will grant us further space. We will conclude with a word about the petition and our opinion of those refusing to sign it. If Iti.tH'O qualified voters sign the petition then the bill for non-compulsory military training will be placed on the November ballot for all of Oregon's citizens to state whether they wish military training to be a requirement In order higher educational schools. If this to graduate from any of our is done it will be the first time thai the voter lias had any expression .whatever on militarism. Heretofore militarism has been rammed down our throats by the war department and the military minded, whether we liked it or not, and there never has been anything democratic about the procedure. If this is a democratic government why should not ull of the people have a voice in its affairs? The answer is, they should. And from now on many of them are determined to have that free democratic expression. Now, why should any 100 per cent American refuse to sign a petition of this nature to place such a bill on the November ballot? All this does is to give himself and all other citizens a chance to vote on the question and thereby further true democratic processes an orderly government by and for the people. When he refuses to sign such a petition (whether it is a good or bad bill is beside the question) to that extent he denies his fellow-citizen the right to free democratic expression and to this same extent he asserts himself to be a dictator, saying.

It Is hard to become reconciled to the fact that so many people should cling to what seem to us such ridiculous fallacies as at times sweep the country, so illogical, so unreasonable and so fantastic arc these schemes, and so gullible arc their adherents in the face of obvious exploitation by their protagonists. , And yet there is one thing which mitigates this feeling of contempt and disgust which we feel when we sec literally millions of people devoting their time, efforts and funds in behalf of what we know in our own minds to be impossible causes. This thing Is hope. It is hope which impells people to subscribe to this end that untried or disguised doctrine. This is an era of hope; of high hopes, some of them, held by people in all classes of society. The course that our society will take In the next generation may easily depend very largely on the extent to which these hopes can be satisfied.
