"It may be a \voek, a month, or even six weeks, but operations in bituminous industry will continue to be stopped," says John L. Lewis. And what would a six-week continuation of the coal .strike mean? It might, and probably would, mean that 50 per cent of America's industrial power and 62 p^' cent of the country's electricity would be shut off. Ninetyfour of every 100 locomotives would stop running. Water systems would be affected. Steel mills would shut down, • and with them eventually plants manufacturing all the countless articles made of steel, from hairpins to automobiles. Six weeks more of the coal strike would sign the death warrant of unnumbered hungry people in other lands. Food for Europe and Asia must be transported by rail to .shipping ports. TJNRRA needs American coal for locomotives to carry food from foreign ports to inland famine areas. That is the grave responsibility facing the principals in the current COB! strike. And while we would not presume to point to (he operators as a. gallery of plaster saints, it seems, on the basis of the evidence, that the chief responsibility is Mr. Lewis's, and that his position is indefensible. *• Mr. Lewis wants first what amounts to a blank check (amount unspecified, but estimated up to an annual ?GO,0*50,000, for a health and welfare fund before he will discuss wages and -.-\\purs. Efforts to discover how this fund would be administered have thus far .been unsuccessful. Mr. Lewis wants the operators to put up the money, but how it will be spent is apparently none of their business. v Mine operators were pioneers in the field of industrial medicine and group health insurance. These services could be improved, as could the safety measures in some mines. Hut the operators' efforts to discuss these improvements from a-- less one-sided approach than the blank-check basis have been dismissed by Mr. Lewis as "munibo- jumbo." The point, however, is that the country, and, indeed, the world, stand to suffer needlessly from a nonsensical, prolonged struggle for prestige and power between the opposing parties, Mr. Lewis knows and admits that the strike wilt lie settled. He knows, and the operators know, how it will be settled. , They will get together, compose their differences, and reach a compromise, They always have, as did management and union in the General Motors strike, and every other strike in recent history. So why not do it now ? It may inflate M. Lewis's self-esteem to know that prosperity, health, and human lives are at the mercy" of his whims. He may~dellght~iif~th(r" role of a shaggy-browed Caesar. But the country as a whole does not. Mr. Lewis has ceased to be picturesque, and his tactics have long since ceased to be amusing. The Judgment of Paris Payment in Ships The United States has been allotted about 18 per cent of Germany's merchant fleet, in accordance with a reparation plan whereby Ifi Allied nations divide the fleet in proportion to the tonnage which they lost during the war. This is entirely fair. But what will we do with the ships? Already this country has the world's largest merchant fleet. It is costing a lot of money to tie up many of the ships, which, though indispensable in war, are how too slow for peacetime competition. American operators are concentrating on the fast Victory-type ship for postwar commerce. Unless the German vessels assigned to this country are of a comparable type, which is very doubtful, this payment in kind for war- 'time losses could well turn into a liability. A practical and generous solution might be to assign the German ships to some of the smaller marine nations in Kurope which lost a large proportion of their fleets—though small in tonnage compared with our losses— and which depend largely on maritime commerce for a national livelihood.

The beach ran along in a series of flit coves, like the edge o£ a scallop shell, and she walked and on, New she was at the edge of the marsh, which cut way back in- J"M . •nd^lay flat and brown and shinjr-ln the sunlight, like a pol- •hf liTtableMop. It meant that she had M cut .way back inland too to 0K tcound it. She skirted the edge, jumping the mosquitc ditch*;*, with the marsh-grass on Jxr-: ricW and a tangle o£ black berry brambles and bright re poi*on ivy on her left, and bcyon the tangle was a bare ridge, righ elate .Otere.

They ounced out across a pasture and irough a woods and finally out n the Bayberry Point Road again. Did you find John Qualey?" she skecl. "No." Alter a while she asked, "Did on look for him?" Uc slarcd straight ahead at the oad. "No." She waited to tell him where to urn oil to get lo the Town Land- Then she said, "You never did go in to the village at all?" "No," he said. "It was like this, saw that road running off down here and I thought a few minutes vouldn't matter and it wouldn'l do any harm to take a look—' "You. were afraid I was goin weak in the head again," she in- tciTupled grumpily. He said nothing. "Weren't you?" "If that is Ellie's boat we saw it's a good thing I was." • wa* beckoning, and she sa lop of the beach wagon ovoi^ ridge behind him.

Isn't tint this side of YV/HILE they were still way up " Hie road Debby could see ther was a man sitting on the gunwal of the boat beside the dock, an long before they got there sh knew it was Ellie. "Gosh Al mighty," she said, "here he wa ^t the Town Landing all the time And us lookin' way over there. Joel palled her hand. He le the car back on the macadam an walking down to the boat h stayed close beside her; sh guessed he was being ready i take hold of her arm any minut Ellie sat all hunched over o the boat, holding his right wrl in his left hand. He watched the ke Bull's, and he looked first at ebby's face and then nt Joel's. '. didn't think you \vus ever com'," he said. "Gee," said Debby. and then, How did you get way over here —afler you lost the oar?" "Who said I lost on onr?" he sked belligerently. "We thought that was what was 10 matter." He spat disgustedly into the mil nt his feel. "What do you link I am? Lose an onr!" His yes moved from one to the other them. "I luu-t my tirin," he aid in an offended tone. "I think t's broke." "Joel was the one figured you might be over here," Debby said. Ellie looked surly. "What of U? othin' very smart about that." To looked at Joel as though lie 'idn't like him. "Listen, have we ot to sit here and argue about it? don't feel good," he added plain- ively. "I been Imvin' chills. And think my arm is broke." Debby looked down' .at the ground. "I'm sorry, Ellie.' I been cared about you so long, I guess lost all my sense. 1 Ellie looked uncomfortable and aid nothing. They helped him up, nd he walked to the car bent >vcr, with short steps like an old nan, holding on to his wrist. Boide the car he said, "There's vvclve ducks and a shelldrake that shot in the boat there." He looked iercely at Joel, as though daring lim lo deny it. "You might as well bring 'em along," h« added. Joel went to get the ducks, anc after she got Ellie into the cai Debby went and stood beside him while he took thein out of the bot- .om and laid them on the scat 'What happened out there on the Meadow?" she asked. He looked up at her and shrugged his shoulders. "It's funny," Debby said, perplexed. "Did you—did you hav an argument about anything?" He straightened up orxl smiled at her. "So (ar ac I know, we wen the best of friends. Practically ol< cronies." "It's funny," she said again "Must lie his arm hurting him.
