Nazi Wonders About Smith, Middkiown Superior in tone, sarcastic, touched with mock pity is Hitler's public comment on Secretary of State Hull's proposal for an international committee to aid German and Austrian refugees. Per Fuehrer describes as "criminals" those whom he refers to elsewhere as "incorrigible opponents" of Nanism, and expresses more than a willingness to turn them over, "for all 1 care, oven on luxury ships." America faces "grave domestic disturbances" in harboring such refugees, states Der AngrilV, editorial Niv/i mouthpiece, and asks rhetorically: "la that the wish of Mr. Smith from Middletown'.'" t Mr. Smith from Middletowii has become well known as thu typical .foe Citizen in "MiiUlletown," and "Middletown in Transition," published studies of the "typical mid-western city." It is the wish of Mr. Smith from Jlidclletown that America continue to be aware of her good fortune in having proved attractive more than 200 years ago to men who were "incorrigible opponents" of every kind of official oppression. It is the wish of Mr. Smith from JHdletown that America continue to enjoy /the social benefits of such distinguished refugees as Germany has already lost to us. It is the wish of Mr. Smith from Middletcrwn that his right never be taken from him to he as incorrigible an opponent of what he believes to be ' unjust as he wishes to be. On the day that Hitler's speech was made public, H stowaways from China were extracted from the hold of a liner in New York harbor. They had'not made the 7G-day journey aboard a "luxury ship." The stowaways will be deported. America's intention is not to admit thu citizens of other nations in indiscriminate numbers. But 'it does, induce a certain feeling of satisfaction to find the place so exceedingly' attractive to other people. It also suggests that it might be worth keeping it that way. Incidentally, one wonders: is Germany having much trouble these days with slowawavs'.' OUT OUR WAY Swing Tiff The nioVe tulkfilive public iigtiven have got HO they can discover wilh almost no effort at all, startling symptoms of national trends in the most trifling of novcllie.s in human behavior. What they'll l)e coming up with after ii little meditation on the current pitched battle between "swinisophilcK" and "swingopliobes" is .something it would be host for the easily diHlruught brain not to ponder, The trouble is, human lotfic in thi.-i instance finds- it hard lo believe thai such an excess of passion could bo a symptom of notltiii},'- at all. H starlwl with a wave of public indignation ovev swing-distortions of such pieces as "Annie Laurie," but the wave went rijtht on rolling into swing's own province, swing music, written to be .swung. Swing sessions on Sunday sent a Buffalo pastor into such n transport til' indignation that he took up dropping into the sessions unannounced and letting go with a hunting sermon, lie introduced the sermon, though, with a rendition of the &id Psalm to tlie tune of "The Hells of St, Mary's." Now, as if to clear the air as it has never been cleared, a Itoslon dance baud leader offers what lie's certain is a substitute that's no less than terrific, lie calls il "Spiral Music." Immediate opposition from one quarter is foreseen. How can the lovers of tlie square dance do it to music that's spiral? Maybe it's all just, a symptom of Ihe approach of the silly season.

THIS CURIOUS WORLD £ William Ferguson A Federal Drivers' License Bill A Fcdcrn.1 drivers' license bill, sponsored by Senator Truman, has just been passed by the Senate and sent lo (lie House. Objectors from states that lack drivers' license laws, or from stales whose taws lire 'inadequate (ami that includes Missouri!, will be on insecure ground In criticising the bill. The measure forbids unlicensed drivers to op- ci'Blc motor vehicles in interstate commerce, and sets standards for slate license law.s, Including visual tests, driving tests nml examinations in knowledge of highway rules. Since the purpose of the bill is lo Induce slates lo imss sound license laws, the effective date is f.el four years In.the future. The Missouri law falls far short of the. Truman bill's standards. It requires no test or examination whatsoever, merely Information as to age. weight, height, color of eyes, address, etc. Missourians need not even apply lor their licenses in person, but may order them by mall. Such a law obviously can do nothing to keep mint drivers olf the highways, except insofar as suspension of Iccnscs after accidents exerts some control. It is not .surprising; IlicU the contiiiUiincr of traffic tragedies In unwilling numbers lias resulted in a bill providing that the Vcilcral Government take n hund. H the states wish lo avert this Interference, they can paw drivers' license laws that will really protect their citizens. The Truman bill/fa a warning for Ilir.

Then he echoed "Go?" vaguely, as if tlie words did nol mean anything to him. "Why—if staying is —inconvenient for you, I suppose we ought not to ask you tc slay .any longer. . . .

"A fellow picks up n lot of interesting information when he's lying here Ibis way. People (orgel you're not dead yet, mid gel cureless." "Are you sure," Constance said, "that yon aren't running a temperature?" "No' a chance. Right now, I'm the sanest person in this house. All Hie nonsense is burned out ot me. . . . But t sort of like your brand of insanity. You're going to be around here Jor a while, aren't you? "Not much longer. 1 imagine. things thai would give her the proper cues, . . . But he did not say any of them. He only muttered something about being in a hurry, picked up his bag, und .vent on with a brief nod. Constance noticed, howcvei, that DC had time tc stop in tlie sala where Hildcgardc sat at the piano; and that it was live minutes bc- foro he came out, laughing and looking years younger, as he so often did after a few minutes spent in Hilda's serene unhurried presence 1 .
