Officials in Washington Imvo cure- fully let it IJG known that Soer«tnry "Byrnes will propose ;i separate pence settlement with Italy at the Big Four foreign ministers' conference in 1'aris unless Russia shows a disposition l<i abandon those tactics of delay and obstruction which so far nave sailed all attempts at drawing up peace treaties. This" appears to be reluctant and somewhat desperate preparation to l^iiikl.a fire under Mr. Alololov's chair and.rouse him to action. Certainly, the United, States does noV want to con- cltife a separate treaty, nor is one desirable. The Allied agreement not to make a separate peace with the enemy •may have expired with the enemy's .surrender, but the reasons for the 'agreement are about as valid today as ever. Yet a threat of separate peace seems almost the only course left open. • Behind the present deadlock is a struggle between the British and what tmiy safely be called the Russian empires. Russia has made safe her western borders by what amounts to separate treaties with Hiilgftriii, Romania, limi- tary, and Poland, where vhere are either Russian occupation troops or Rus- .Stan-sponsored governments, or both, •flow/Russia wants a foothold in 4he Mediterranean. This clashes with British policy and ' threatens the empire's lifeline. But, more than that, it contravenes some declarations of the United Nations Charter'. Russia wants to move in on some of Italy's African colonies, while ;the Charter proposes UN trustees-hip of such territories. Russia also wants I to control the Dodecanese Islands, 'which Italy held. Hut the Greek-popu- .-luted Dodecanese, under the Charter's principle of "sel('-determination of peoples," would almost certainly vote to s to Gl-eece. Russia also wants Trieste turned ; ? over to the Russiair.sponsored government in Yugoslavia. The other three foreign ministers want this seaport '-gateway to Central Hurope intorna- " lionalfeed, and the city, with its Ital; ian population, given to Italy. There is also a clash of ideologies • behind the deadlock. NaUmillv, the Americans, British, and French would prefer to see their own conception of .democracy rather than Russia's, as th? basis of an Italian government. But it is certain that once a formal peace had been concluded. With a freely- chosen Italian government, the weB- lifi'ri democracies ,\vbul<( abide by any subsequent change in that government which resulted from free elections and was not-fascist. Chiefly, however, Russia's lactic?" are u cause of present chaos, and .her demands, if met, are a potential threat to future peace. Perhaps,. the presept tactic's are aimed at maintaining ^the unrest in which communism seems to grow and flourish. But whatever the reason, the results, arc dangerous. So Mr. Byrnes is forced to adopt an attitude as recalcitrant as Mr. Molotov's. lie probably doesn't, enjoy his role, but he will have to play it to the hill. Unfortunately, it- seems that only a strong attitude backed by strength will be able to force a compromise and start the machinery of negotiation moving. A bluff won't work, however painful the alternative.

"What's that for?",Ellie nskc< ''This friend of mine never di any gunning," Bart said, "but i sort ol fell lor Debby. 1 gue : he'd come along if I could prom Ise that she'd hunt with us." Ellie.grinned mischievously, she's gonna be the one to train t dog, I 'spose she'll have to lianc him whenever he's hunted." Now it was mid-October, five days left before the bird son was to start,.Debby was st hoping to i^erform some sort ol miracle with Bull. • And then, without warning, al 10:30 on a stormy night, Barl and Joel arrived—for the duck hunting. Nothing ever happened tlie way you figured it- was going lo. Debby was' in bed when they arrived, lying in bed listening \o the rain on the i;0of.,and to the wind thai came galloping the high land. She had nothing, and then the beam of the headlights moved suddenly ami weirtuy cc.-oss the ceiling.

Debby walked across the darl ining room and stood in the door vay, smiling. Debby, old girl." said Bar 'You remember Joel Sinnler?" She .tirrned and looked at bin le was holding his h;il npolo licnlly between his thumb ami forefinger, leaning a little forward as Ihough he thought by doing so he could slop his co«l from dripping on the tloor. Debby smiled. He was like u little boy. "Don't look so worried," she said. ."The tloor's been \vct before, llere, give me your hat. And lake ofT your coal." Shf look the hat and coat inlo he woodshed and hung them up. She tame back and smiled nt him: you couldn't be afraid" of a boy who looked like that. Ellie came in, in his trousers and shirt, barefooted, and Bull walked round and round the kitchen like a caged animal, slopping only lo look vrp al Ucbby's 1'ace. Agnes was tlaltering the across j drafts in the stove, and the ):itch,heard ! en smellcd of wood smoke and wet clothes. They got chain; from the dining room and all sal in a circle. "Ellie," said Bart, "what do you say to trying some decoying out behind the Island tomorrow morn' Debby watched Ellie. Vie was imping tobacco into his pipe. Might give il a thought. Hurt," e said without looking \ip. Agnes shook her head distrust- dly. "Some iK-ople will always ie fools." "Is your boat over on Shool- lying liny?" U:n I »skecl. "Hijiht beside yuurs'," said Ellie. 'I si'en yours when I was there list week." "I( we took both boats," Bart was saying, "I should think it woukl be safe enough, ivoutdn't have to load either of them down very much." "Sure," said Ellie, "perfectly safe." "Sure, sure," said Agnes. "One of the safest things you can do —rowing around Shoot-Hying Bay in a northeaster." Dart quieted Agnes with the promise thai if it was blowing too hard lo go around the Island, they would stay on the mainland. 11 was arranged thai Ellie and Dcb T by would pick up Bart and ,.Joe[ at the Wyinans' guest houso at 5:lf>, and they stood up to jo. Debby stood up too, with her hands llmtst deep into Ihe pocktts of lu>r jacket. Bart \yas looking,al her, grinning—at her tousled hair and al the wlil^ collar of, the jacket that lay around her shoulders liko a horse-collar and at the blue and white striped legs of her flannel pyjamas anil her red knitted slipper« and at her ankles, which were pink and sleu- der. "Sometimes, Debby," he said, "you achieve some remarkable effects." She smiled at him uncertainly ami pulled the jackei tighter ;nouiul her. She was conscious ol Joel's eyes on her, and she thought probably she should have put more clothes on before arie came down. "I had a balWobe," she explained, "but the moths got into it and—" "Don't apologize," said lljn' "You're much more interesting v you are. Isn't she, Joel?"
