Words on War To Give One Pause The gravity of developments in Kur>l)e and the Far East as threats of a serious nature to our own security spmelimes seems to increase or diminish in intensity according t.o tlie person one read l>isl on the subject. 'Lilllc wonder thai tlie public mind falls into the habit of skimming as lightly ami 'casually over articles of significance on international affairs a.s it does over tlie various contradictory pronouncements on the real nature: of the warfare of the future. Bewilderment of course leads la indifference, and ignorance lies only a little way ahead along lliat road. On an exceedingly rare occasion a man whose personality and background are s'icli as to compel exceptional iit- tentron to his words in that particular situation.arises.and gives a whole people pause with tlie thnig he has to say. It is likely that Senator George \V. Norris' words on naval defense and the ambitions of other nations are commanding some attention. Senator Norris on another subject might not command it. His words in another man's mouth might not. But Senator Norris, who has expressed his violent opposition to a big navy as often as he has expressed his desire for peace, tins now done what he describes an "modifying my position somewhat," not, on the subject of peace, but or. Ihe subject of /the' navy.. "I feel bound to keep our country armed to an extent greater than Japan is armed or greater than cither Italy or Germany is armed," he says, although he adds his opinion thai, the present pending naval construction bill is "unreasonably largo." Senator Norris, who was one of I lie six senators who voted against I he entry of the United States into the Work! War, and who is no alarmist, says: "To me it seems almost as if these nations (Japan, Ilaly, Germany) have gone wild and have, lost all sense of decency and honor . . . li seems lo me, no matter how wo feel or whal we think, we must mako reasonable preparations, at least, to meet such a contingency." The "contingency" referred ! u Ihe bombing of civilian populations. There is absolutely no virtue in early fisi —Dr. Jaslrow, Cliicago psychologist. OUT OUH WAY Lo, the Poor- it history would stop scc&iwiug so, maybe a man could get his bearinga. Palm Spring;, the dcserl resort down in southern California, turns out to be tliu property of an Indian tribe. Its hotels, eal'c.s, mineral baths, and cocktail bars .swm-iri with movie starts and society people, but back of every rustling thicket lurks a painted brave . . . )iand on till. # I'M I'M t the white men had to be protected from Hie Indians, and tlien tlie Indians from the white men, and , . . here we K<> "" " ll1 ' -seesiiw HK'iin. Tlie lower ntinilicrs on the Palm Springs cash roKt'sters are reported to have been loiij,' covered with dusl. Jiliiybe these Indians remember the trifling payment another tribe got for the Number J Cafe Town back of Ihe Statue of J.iljL'i-ly. Maybe they're planning on expanding around here and there and doing a little farsighled land bargaining themselves. A man ought to Ihink about things. Maybe we never should have bought New York in (he first place. Maybe Palm .Springs will prove loo much compeli- lion and we'll have lo .sell lhat other place in the east dirt chcajt and get out IVom tinder. Or maybe it would be better just to •wait For that seesaw. Palm Springs, it should be mentioned, has as nianv Indian advisers as it has Indians. The Gunners' And ion. iMany observers were pleasantly surprised by the interest so obviously displayed in the lirst of the weekly farmers' auction sales conducted here last week by the Mi.s.sco corporation, a nonprofit fanners' organisation. Sales for the day totaled approximately §2,500 with cattle and hogs being auctioned at a brisk pace. It was this feature of the auction which was especially pleasing to -supporters of Ihc sales. The .sale of hogs ami cattle at the auctions, it is expected, will ultimately build up this lerrilory'K resources. In fact the principal purpose buck of the sales seems to be to offer a central point, where farmers may gather lo obtain tlie animals they need and to offer them a fair market for those they do not need. Last week's auction opened about 10 o'clock in the morning and continued without abatement until almost six o'clock. An even bigger oil'ering j. s a ,,_. ticipated this week at. the auction grounds on (lie old Cliicago Mill office site. There is no reason why the auction should not assume (he importance here that il has acquired in many other communities, for example in Missouri and Illinois.

"Of course I asUecl for you, my <lcar, when I went back to Bin-l- Iclt's the oilier d;iy," Mrs. Hogcrs was rushing blithely on. Constance, watching Derek's face ami hoping tlie others had not seen il, began, "F think Ihci-c's— " Bill il \vits usolci-ii. Mrs. Rogers hoard only her own voice. "The joke ;iboiil Die whole tiling, Mrs. Manthon" — tbc merry twinkle in Mrs. Rogers' eyes assumed lhat Constance would enjoy the joke ;is rmich as she did— 'Vas that one or two of the girls in the store had an idea that your young man had jilted you to come out here, mid were wasting a lot of .sympathy on you." Well, it's out DOM'. Constance IhmiRht. That's all it needed. Into (ho silence that followed, Derek l>cg;m in a thin, stifled voice, "Of course il's easy to .see how this story started. There was — in fact, we — " Out of sheer pity Constance broke in, her voice clear, cool, and just enough amused, "It's too bad lo spoil such a pretty romance, Mrs. Holers; but Mr. Manthon and I are not married. It is true Hi-si we did announce our engagement— there was even something ab-ut it in some of the papers, i believe; but we found — oh, some time ago— Unit the whole thing was— well, rather a mistake." She smiled a little pityingly at 'llio gratitude she read in 'Derek's hunled eyes. Mark Rogers hud strolled 1 to a window, and was standing now, any misunderstanding ;ibotil this of course. 1—" "Itally, aren't we making a mountain out of a mole hill?" Hildii Thorvald asked lazily with one of her faint, inscrutable smiles. "After all, this isn't anyone's allair but yours and Connie's, is il, Derek?" She smiled companionably at Constance, slrollcd over to the piano, sal down, and began lo play with complete absorption. (CONSTANCE stood for a moment exactly where she had stood since Mrs. Rogers had begun lier epoch-making narrative; then she turned and swiflly led the room. As she went, she heard Sirs. Rogers insisting in a voice of amused bewilderment, "And they actually (old me at the -store that she hud bought the last tilings for her trousseau only (lie day before she went away, Mr. Manlhon." When Coiwlance vi-cnt up lo Clcorge Thorvakl'.s room a, lew minutes later, Dr. liogcrs was there. tin's about your going away, t'onnie?" George demanded. "Good Lord, Doc! 1 thought you were one ot these strong silent men who know how lo bundle women. . . . Von brought her here because, you thought 1 needed her, didn't you? All right, tell her I slill need her, and put a slop to this nonsense." "You spoiled brat," Mark Rogers said shortly, "you don'l need her any more than I do"; and realizing loo late how unwary he liad been, turned an unprofessional crimson when the boy went on, his black eyes snapping delightedly in ibeir deep hollows: "All right, then. For God's sake, tell her how mucli you need her. Maybe lhat will hold her if nothing else will. . . . Oh, very well"— it was only loo evident that George Thorvakl was immensely—"if himself cn)oymg you, as my physician, don't know how to see to it that I get the kind of care and nursing my feeble slate requires, I'll have to sec what can be done about it for myself. . . Interrupt me i£ I'm wrong, but this seems Ike only way out of it: "Connie, darling, will you marry me—and make'me laugh for the rest of my life?" "No, George, dear," answered Constance. "I will not." "And wiiy not?" George ailccled hurt surprise. "Because, dear George, I love Comlancc said dc- "Hm!" Gcori-c frowned. "Thnd: docs-complicate (lie mutter. N'ot"— his eyes lighlcd ivilh ivicked cunning—"not that fuir-haired boy in Hie sludio, I hope." Too late Constance suw whither this guinc was lending. "No," she said shortly. "I should hope nol." "1 hoped not, . . .

CONSTANCE followc Rogers out of Ihe ro ivcxl Mailc ; com. i "Well." she said with a mocking lilllc smile, "it had to be ,-i major operation, after all, didn't it?" "I'm sorry," Mark Kogcrs said. "Hul when Mother gets under way she—well, you saw for yourself." "Of course," Constance told him. "It didn't mailer at all, really— except to Derek." "Oh—him! The half-baked Narcissus!" Mark Rogers almost barked. "Yon mustn't blame Derek to'), much." Constance said swiftly. "Ill wasn't his fault it I built him upi into something he never was, amlj,' probably never could be." She was, she realized desper-l ately, saying all the wrong thing*! It wasn't Derek she wanted lo tulkj about. It wasn't Derek at all more, ... He said abruptly, "You're bcinf,' very fair. Il's an unusual, and —a very lovely trail." "Il's easy lo be fair -when- U'hen things don't hurt any more," Constance said, and added on rinick breath, "Do you know, that'-; almost Ihc first nice thing you ever said lo me?" "Do you know," he .said, with a short laugh, "that you're not a particularly easy person to say things to—nice or otherwise?
