Ten Years of the Higher Hypocrisy It is just 10 years ago Hint President Hoover proclaimed eil'celivc Ihe Kellogg: Pact, designed lo outlaw forever war as an instrument of national policy among Ihe 59 nations which signed it. With Aristide Briand, France's great • post-war peacemaker, Kellogg hoped and believed that they had helped put the natioiis of Die world on a new track toward peace and amity. The world hoped so, loo, weary \vith post-war wrangling anil the failure to make good on the war promises that means would be taken lo make it the last war. But what was ushered in with the Kellogg-Briand pact was not the higher statesmanship, but the higher hypocrisy. What was outlawed was not war itself, but the word war. In 1931 When Japan seized iUani'hu- ria and turned it into Mancliukiio, Uio United Slates', Britain, China, and other powers called Japan's attention to the fact (hat they had all signed the Kellogg-Bn'and pact. Japan returned a diplomatic shrug and grinned that this was not war; this was meicly the suppression of unreasonable opposition to Japanese influence in Manchuria. When Italy invaded Fthiopia in 1935, the attention of Rome was called to the fact that both nations had signed the Kellogg-Briand treaty. But this, wasn't war,,Ihe Italians iiisJs,led. fh'isy wa's a mere colonial expedition aimed at pacifying Ethiopian tribesmen' who could not understand the benefits of Italian influence in their country.. , By the lime Germany and Italy were sending their troops to Spain, and China and Japan became locked in a three- year death struggle everybody was loo tired to call attention to the fact that they had all formally renounced war as an instrument of national policy. The million dead in Spain, and millions dead in China had died in something, but not in a war. Thus the high spot of all time 'iii international hypocrisy has been quickly and neatly achieved. The 59 nations solemnly agreed not lo wage war, and not one of them has dared to denounce the pact or withdraw its signature. They just go oh waging war, and calling it something e | se . u j s t uc higher hypocrisy in action. Yet there is something significant in the fact that none of these warring powers has formally denounced its signature or formally withdrawn from its agreements. It is because thev all kiiuw that deep in the hearts of their people lies the wish for peace. And while they do not give tho peoples peace, they dare not formally and officially say that they care nothing for this desire. Declining Populations We think of the. birth rate as a I'Veiich problem, a German problem, an American problem. We think of France's declining population, and we assume that Germany, Italy, and other countries are meanwhile steadily gaining. ' ' This i» not the case, if a League of Nations survey published in its statistical year book is correct. This indicates that birth rates are declining in almost every country.: The world gained 9,000,000 in population betsvecn 1930 ami 1037, but that is because fewer died, not because more were born. , : Within the next 30 years, the survey suggests, the population of the United Slates may decline some B per cent, but that of England and Wales may drop as much as 22,per cent. Germany, Italy, and even Japan, in spite of every effort to stimulate the birth rale, see it falling. Longer life for those who are born, but fewer people born—-that is the foreseeable, future, and it means a recalculation of almost all the /factors of the future. ' ' . Plover and Stbr/f Women's hats are a fearful and wonderful tiling. They occupy a domain into which the male venture's timidly and will) becoming modesty. He dors- n't understand these, mallei s, and he knows it. Hut Das Schwai/.e Coips, a newspaper of one of those chcst-lhumping German military oigauizalions, and therefore presumably edited by men, has hiavely grappled with the pioblcm. "They put a IJiazihan plovoi or an Australian mmmluic slork on some kind of a bcci pad and sell this desecration of nature <\s the last \\oid in • the hal-maUmg art, at outiageovis prices," betwiifs Die paper. "Why a" woman is /supposed to become more beautiful when she slaps such a monstrosity on her head, not a single one of these fashion experts has been able to reveal." Alas, no, not one. And we don't know ourselves any logical reason why the women should look attractive in this year's mad millinery. But, gosh, they do! •SO THEY SAY If we can substitute self-jlquUlaling invest-' menu In place of oulrighl government, expenditures we shall have; made a great slep loward bridging the sap between revenue and .expenditures.—Treasury Secretary Morgcntlinu, advoont- ln^ the proposed lending program. » * « It WHS understandable under the old parly po- lidcal system that all 'questions concerning the general Interest shiniM. be discussed and pas- slonalely debalcd wherever people came together.

Rosclee was declaring, once the girls were in hed lhal uighf. "Why would he .lake the money from (lie old shaft arid hide it in tlie dungeon without telling us?" "I don't like to think of him as under suspicion," murmured Christine. They had watched Dick go back into the dungeon, and had seen the faint reflected glow of a flashlight from far back in the forbidding depths,ot tho jail cells. Then, still crouching in the shadows, they had seen Dick come out empty-handed and go back down the slrect, and they knew he had concealed the money inside. The two girls had returned lo the Ace High Holel and gone to bed before 10 o'clock. "I'm " terribly upset, Christy. Honest I ,im." "Roselee, do you suppose this man—Packman, wasn't it?—will try anything else? His mining company, I mean?" "I don't know. But Dick' will be on the lookout now, surely. Ife will lake care of everything. He —he would have, I mean. What I mean—he" Roselee was contused. Confused in her speech and—worse—in her own heart. Christine sensed it and shared it, and so reached out to squeeze her friend's arm. "Tell me somelhing, Ilosclee," she spoke tenderly. "Do you love Dick Bancroft?" Boseloo didn't answer. There was a long moment of silence and then distinct little sounds as of tears. • "You don't have to tell 'me, darling," Christine whispered then. ."I know you do lave him. I know how you feel now, too. I can't think he was planning to conceal the money from you. Why don'l we'go and ask him?" "No!" "At any rate there was some good news in' 'it— the' man''said Goldcrcsl ore was valuable again. He even said there was a new out-- cropping worth a hundred dollirs a ton/'Roselecl' 1 .. "I'd-doh't:,". . 'care!" • .- •„ ;• '.-.' '.•:, *'•«>>• :': , , was holding her friend's hand now as she lay there on her pillow'for a long time, thinking. The hour wasn't late, and she thought back over all the events since school was out. She thought,-too,-'of Roselee and Dick Bancroft—and of Franklin Larravyayi ' •..<,.! .• i' Franklin was gone tonight. Franklin had fallen for her, Christine knew, from the moment he had met her. A girl can sense such things, intuitively. It had been amusing then/ Franklin was more boyish; siender and rather shy, and unable to conceal his shyness with his forced geniality and banter. He was cxlremely loyal to his friend Dick. Franklin had shown more and more refinement and lovabiiity and intelligence as the days had passed. Christine had felt herself drawn to the larger, more commanding Richard Bancroft at first, just as Rosolee had been. For one thing fhey had "discovered" Dick under dramatic circumstances, like a movie romance. There in twilight at the bank vault—goodness! And he was undeniably handsome. "Out Franklin is" every bit as good looking," Christy reminded herself now. She wondered what had conic over her. Somehow she had undergone a kirid of spiritual change just lying here : thinking. She wasn't sleepy. She wanted to think—to think about Franklin. "And I made Franklin believe I was crazy about Dick!" Chrisline recalled, horrified now at the Ihought. "There, painting the signboard he tried to be nice— tried lo let me know—!" Now it was Christine's turn to cry, and- she sobbed harder than Rpselec had done, until both girls finally turned over their pillows and went to sleep in companionable misery. • '* *•• *'•'.'•• " , S. HOGANhad a good brcak- fast for the three young people. At. the table Roseloe and Christine watched Dick expectantly, but he did hot mention the previous night's affairs. The girts were keenly disappointed, esper cially Roselee. Dick had hidden the $12,000.- Dick had secrets which he,/thought they didrt't know, arid he wasn't "sharing them. Boselee's lovely 'lace .was dark with anxiety. ARNOl&V (OM, NCA ilMICt, IJJS; ; 'A'few tourist automobiles were coming in by 9' arid the young people had to,serve as guides. It yas Christine, though, who kept alert and at 11 saw Franklin Larraway's rattly old car coming across the josiuia tree desert before she heard its noise. She joined her little knot of "tourist guests wilh one of Roselee's and 1 hastened lo meet Franklin. The young man's eyes bright- enod wilh obvious pleasure when she came to his car. "Hello!" he said. "You look fresh as a dewdrop! Your new cowgirl outfit is very becoming," She laughed a bit, happily. "Bring me anything, limm?" She asked it casually, leasingly, as a,child might have, and just (t as casually picked up the parcel at his side. If she had given it a thought at all she would have assumed that the parcel contained something for use at Goldcrest. It was a natural assumption. They had had to buy a lot of odds and ends—tools, souvenirs, cooking utensils, items of clolhing, provisions and such—on trips in to town. And, in a thoughtless instant Christine had shaken the loose wrapper off this parcel too. A calfskin purse, beautifully beaded, dropped out. "Oh!" she cried, staring Franklin blushed, rather painfully. "Yeah," he finally managed, swallowing. "Yeah, I did. But you beat me to it, Christy. I—well I mean I forgot it was laying there "To-Dick?" "Yeah, that's U! B ick! He, uh', ho told me .to bring it, f or you Christine. He's—well I guess he wanted to be nice and all, and I was going in to town, see? Mayhe we belter not tell him you've already seen il, sec?" .Christine looked-at'Franklin, looked into his frank gray eyes. He was trying to be casual, trying to smile and laugh a bit. But Franklin wasn't a good actor and he wasn't gelling away with it. Chrl- tine felt a siidden hurt wilhin her. She knew- Franklin was lying- she knew Dick hadn't ordered that purse! She wasn't sure* exactly what really had happened, but her heart told her that things were all mixed up some way. She fell her--throat tighten ami she was afraid she was going to cry again as she had cried last night. So she turned hastily away.' "Oh sure," she forced herself to say. "Don't tell him. It's sweet of him to think of me, wasn't it? You—you belter hurry up and come to work!" '..SbV hurried 'oiT. 'Tears had actually^ c'oirie,. and hoi for ; ihe world would she hiv'e hacT him see them.
