Sticking Out The Japanese- Chin The unpleasant news from Europe lias pretty well obscured tir; equally unpleasant news from China the last few weeks. But the news Iron: China : that wasn't crowded out of Ihe papers lias added to the growing bnlk-f Hint Japan is getting herself into an increasingly precarious position. The Chinese continue lo demonstrate their legendary cleverness to the great discomfiture of the invader. The war • costs millions of dollars (hat Japan is )i;ir<l put to raise—and no one knows this better than the Chinese who have .discovered that it costs the Nipponese about as much 8 to repel one raidinj; planc as an entire fleet. Consequently the Clunese send out lone raiders several limes during the night. They have other tricks with which, they mo- •'.voke painfully expensive, fireworks on the part o/ the Japanese. Especially effective have been , the guerilla tactics of the Chinese. The ; farther into China the Japanese push, '; the longer their thin line of communication stretches out, ami the Chinese hiive been making it very tough for the scattered garrisons in the territory claimed by the Japanese. But the prize maneuver of nil was the formation of a midget Socialist state 200 miles behind the Japanese „: linos. .'vTbis government.,' Aadked bjt : v seven million fanners, xiip- ' ports a huge guerrilla army that has paralyzed Japanese comnumcialion lines in north China. And a,ll this activity, remember, goes on in Jt-jpch province, which theoretically is in Japanese ha.nds. Meanwhile hatred for the Japanese has become something of a famUical religion among China's millions. True, the casualties on the Chinese side have been tremendous, totaling at least .12 fatalities to one for the Japanese. But Japan C^nuot kill all the Chinese any move thnu she can conquer- ail of China. Japan h;\d hoped to grab oil' ;\ big chunk of territory quickly and with the use-of only a hundred thousand ; troops. She now has more than a naif mjlliou soldiers lighting on foreign soil. And those soldiers must ail Lo Provisioned.. - So Japan finds herself iu the middle. She cannot turn back. Kurlhcr invasion costs dearly in men and money.

An Constance came up he was standing, liis bright heui bare to the moonlight, wilh one booted Xool on a low stone \val that ran along llio edge of the grove, nicking idly at a weed wilh his riding crop. At some faint sound she made, lie turned, flung aside his whip, cric;l softly, "Cojjnio, darling!' and springing toward her, caught her inlo his arms. The whole movement was as beautiful as well-rehearsed dance. Now hit was holding her Irom him, laughing down at her like a delighted boy. "Darling," he cr i c< | > ..[ can ' v ,^_ hove yet thai you're actually lierc, alter these terrible empty weeks." "Were they empty, Derek?" She couldn't hear him say i( ollen enough. "Weren't they for you?" he asked reproachfully into her hair. "Oh, sc. hideously empty, Derek." And in ll lc end it was she who liad to reassure him, to tell him over aiid over again how desperately lonely she had been. "When 1 walked in there this evening and saw. yovi, Connie, it almost floored me. All the lime I was making those silly marks on your face, I had the strangest sense of unreality—c£ not actually being there and seeing it all happen, i£ undorsland what 1 mean. I hardly dared speak for fear you'd vanish." OS course! That was why he ItocJ .•ieemea io strangely silent. "I know," Constance murmured. "I've been feeling that, loo." They sal dawn on the low stone wall, liis arms around her. . "You see, all they had fold me was thai the doctor was bringing on some one lo double for the Wynne person. Even when llie nurse came lo get me, she didn't remember your name. ... 01 course, it I had known Rogers knew you, I might have guessed. You are like the Wynne. ... How Co£/rijM,J«y, ' _', •NEA Se//t<», Inc. HEN Constance liad told him about her three mec'lings with Mark Rogers, Derek frowned and said somewhat sulkily, "There's something abbul all this 1 don't exaclly like—the way this fellow seems to have been following you around, for one thing, ever since 1 came away. That day lie came to Ihe sludio wanting to buy your portrait, I—" Constance sal up very straight. Tlie day he—tvJiat:-"' "Oh, didn't 1 tell you (hat? Well, everylhmg was in such a muddle then: . . . Just a rew minutes be- lore you came in l) !c <i, 1y i ] e f( wilh the Thorvalds, lie came barging inlo (lie studio, wanting to buy I he Lady m Blue. Said his mother liked it." So it was Derek's studio Marie Rogers had been coming from that day when he had nearly knocked her down on Ihe steps. "Ot course I told him prelly flatly dial llie iiprlrait wasn't for sale," Derek was going on, "But I .. „„ owt1.5 v,l, u thought then—do you know, , don't altogether like your flying out with him alone, Connie—a nan you hardly know." "He gave the best of references; and his circle o£ acquaintances itemed lo be absolulcly gih-edgcd —Dr. Ardmore, for instance—nol to speak of the Thorvalds, whose opinion," Constance added dc- nnrely, "you don't seem to think 100 badly of, yourself." "Yes, I know. But you can't al- vays judge from thSl." Connie smiled a litlle secret •miile. . . . This from Derek, who had never considered any unconventional prank in liis own com- wny too indiscreet— even from the first. "You needn't worry,'. 1 she said. 'Even if 1 were interested, 1 don't cem lo he having a slarlling success with llie gcnlleman. In fact, liis evening he very emphatically vaslicd his hands of me." "Washed his hands of .vou?" >crek echoed blankly. "You mean he—but, 1 say, he can't do that, you know." 'Oh, can't he? You don't knew he man." "But 1 definitely heard him tell Mr. Thorvald this evening after •on were in George's room that he experiment was surprisingly uccessful, and that lie hoped you ouid lie persuaded to stay xmlil lie Wynne menace is up and able o stage her own act. . . .-Camilla Vyiine, by the way, is the family horn in the flesh rwiote'you boul." ' : f t « ' CONSTANCE couldn't help wondering if H had never occurred lo Derek that, after all his own eager promises, it had taken Mark Rogers (o gel her here. "It's going to be perfect, darling," he was going on gayly. "The iiiglils arc marvelous now. We can spend hours log ether—like this— and—" "Derek," she said suddenly, "I can't help wondering just what you mean by 'like Ihis.'" 'Mean? Why, just what I said." Derek seemed puzzled and « liilie irritated. "Alone together, where/ no one can bother us, and—whore', we won't disturb the family, of course." "Derek," Constance began again, 'if I were your wife—as I should :iave'Ijcen now, I suppose if—it none of tills had ever happened— if you had never seen Ihe Thor- valds—would it have occurred lo you lo wonder whether, at any lime or in any place we chose— our being together'could possibly be any one else's business?" "Wow, Connie—" Derek's .voice took on a hurt, startled note. He picked up his crop again, and was flicking restlessly at a bush beside him. "Don't you [In'nk you're being a little—well, didicult about this? t mean—well, after- all, 1 am a guest here; and so are you, of course," he added hastily. "But you don't mean lo suggest,' I suppose," Constance asked, "that the Tliorval'ds could have any objection to Iheir guesls meeting and talking quite openly, especially when they had known each other -ralher well—for some time?" "01 course not." Derek moved impatiently. "Bui just novr lliu family arc iu the deepest of trouble. If you had been here, as I was, when—" Do I understand," Constance interrupted, trying lo keep Invoice very even, "lliat you have been worried for fear dial I might seize Ihis opportunity to—lo force our relationship on Mr. and Miss Thorvald?" "Connie, darling!" Derek look iicr swiftly jnlo his arms again; but a real annoyance lingcd his •oice. "You can't imagine I meant any such thing. You didn't used io be so—so unfair. What I had in mind was -well, here we are, after 'these dismal weeks, wilh the key lo happiness literally thrown into our laps.
