J!r. UtifT Cooper 1ms bcc-n luiviiiK troulilo Retting enough men to on- list in the army under the expansion program recently adopted hy the I'rit- isli government. So he told a London luncheon meeting the other day: "It is difficult to persumle our own people of the dangers thai lie nhend. We arc told we should never frighten people. But it is the duly of those in authority lo frighten the pcuplo of this country out of their wits. "I rcmenilier very well the summer of 10I«1, when grave wnrnings were issued by Field Marshal Karl Kobcris. The silimtioii in Europe today is far worse than it was in .19M. There is no mini with Uio slightest, knowledge of it who would deny that statement, and still we are joking and laughing and refusing to face facts." It is a striinge thing, the way the mind of man Kninclimcs works. Here \ve have a member of the British cabinet proclaiming .that the nation is in greater danger now than it was on.ithc eve of tho World War; anil yet the, only solution that occurs to him is the solution of 10M—war- ship;, guns mid airplanes—which nearly wfeckcd {he civiliiiiitioji of lh c whole world, Mr. Duff Cooper speaks of "facing facts." The most noUtblc fact about 19M would .seem !o be that the nations of the world, having followed selfishly nationalistit policies with a blind disregard of (ho. dangers involved, finally got > themselves to a point where they had to fight their way out, a process which came within a hair's- breadth of ruining all of them. And yet it is precisely this fact which tiie gentleman seems unable to face. How the human race, with the dreadful object lesson of 1914 so fresh in its memory, can even dream of repeating Hini experience is one of the greatest mysleries of all history. It may b.f, as Mr. Duff Cooper says, that what people need is to be frightened out of their wits. Rut the result might not bo what he expects. It.' might, indeed, be the exact oppa- silc, to Hie everlasting doom of the militarists of all nations. For if the plain people of the world could once understand (he holocaust that seems to be in preparation for them, and could fear it us they ought to fear it, they might take their assorted statesmen by the scruff of their assorted necks and loll them; "Here—we want no more of that, at any price. Get together and settle things, somehow, anyhow—no matter what it costs yon or us. The world has lived under the law of the jun«le long enough. Find a new law—nr jrel out of the way for yumvonc who can." —Hrucc Cattoii. From Left, and Right The New Deal is under lire from two sides. Al Smith and others whoso viewpoint is that of the du 1'onts and (he Liberty League are engaged in an apparent attempt lo or- Kiini/e a bolt of conservative Democrats. They claim thai RoosweU's leadership is dangerously radical. At the oilier extreme are the ?200- a-monlh pension advocales, lhc shurc- the-weallhers, Iho Conghlinilcs and a varied assortmenl of extremisU of other kinds, whose one point of agreement seems to be Hint Roosevelt is too conservative. These dissenting, elements will have no po\ver Mn the Democratic convention. To what extent they will be successful in diverting votes from Hie Democratic ticket next November remains lo be seen but probably it won't be much. The Liberty League does not have much following among Democrats and the chances are (hat most of those who do not Hi ink Roosevelt is sufficiently radical will stick with him' in preference lo .supporting a third parly ticket which has no chance of success but which inighl conceivably make possible a Ke- puhlican victor;'. The condition of an overwhelming majority of Americans has improved .substantially under the present national administration. liven those who find themselves in disagreement with many parU of the, Roosevelt program will be slow lo risk'a return to the conditions which prevailed before 11)33.

JVOW CO O.Y WITH THM STORY CHAPTER IV £S casually as (hough he had - said good night a few hours before, Bob greeted Marcia, met Camilla and Phil, joined them, and lalkcd of Ihc crowded boal train, lhc smooth crossing. As naturally as though he had been expected, he accepted an invitation to join Hie party for the evening. Marcia, watching curiously, realized lhat she wasn't surprised. So:nehow she had been expecting hih. When Phil and Camilla left them alone for a little while, Bob smiled quietly. He seemed older, or 'maybe he was merely tired. "Way did you • honey?" he nskcd. "Scatterings weren't enough, Bob." "i love you." He smiled, and whin he smiled his face was warm and bright, and Marcia felt her heart stir restlessly. She wanted to believe him again, and sho mustn't want lo. These Ihrci words wore a sesame he had used many limes to many girls, of course! He had said, "I love you and Marcia and half a dozen olh- cr girls." "1 was a darned fool, Marcia, Bob's low. melodious voice pleaded. "Speaking lhat rot about a job. I don't blame you a bit. Only you might have warned me. You were within your riRbls io walk out when 1 made a jackass of myself." "Let's skip il," his former fiancee answered. "We might pretend we aren't engaged and it's fun to be together. As for anything else. Bob—I don't kno "J won'l rush yon. Marcia. Marry me when you gel ready. Bnt please get ready!" His smile was rueful and imploring. "Mind if I slick around, though? You seem lo mailer n lot." He did not mention Iho confusion thai had followed the canceled wedding and Marcia was grateful that he didn't. * » « ', half an hour laler, Marcia was dressing with unusual care. Her evening frock was of blue taffcla and large white flowers gave (he impression of having been blown against il in n madcap wind. The evening was gay. II was laic when they came lo Zcni's the mcrca for Americans who want to laugh and talk and dance lhc new day in. "There arc gigolos and hostesses," Count Von Wormslrdl explained. "The telephone on cacV table is a curious device. Yov can call ,-my other table in (he room. I'll get Hositn for us." Rosila was slim and dark with black lacquered hair and ved lacquered fingernails. "You never have danced with a gigoto?'' she asked Marcia wher someone pointed out the paic Bob liclJ out his arms. "Shall ivc c/ofjccP" ha dancing partners. "Oh, but you must. I'll go get Pierre. You'll like Pierre!" She was gone for some time. Marcia was sure that she had forgotten her promise and W.TS glad. Paying a man for a dance was n little disgusting. Bnt eventually Rosila returned with a tall, dark Frenchman who bowed very low and danced very well, ilr- began to hold her too closely and she Iried lo move away. When she did he laughed n little, fimnconc was taking flashlight pictures and attention was turned on the photographer. Advertisements, or Sunday news . pictures, Mnvcia guessed. She hoped that the- camera would miss her and this—, this gigolo. Then, as tlinuch taking advantage of Ihc fart Ihot all ,-itlcnlion -was centered elsewhere, Pierre bent over, and kisrcd her on the lips—long, hard, unyieldingly. She broke away with a little scream. Nobody heard. • The f!.i.-,hlight was doing its stunt and Ihc sound was lost. She ran back table, her face while and h lo the cr eyes blazing. She was glad tlial i'icrrc did not come back to her hut she heard him ashing for his francs from Dob a lillle later. • . * * TT was spring in Paris nivl llicre were flowers on the strci t corners and music in the air. To- the Rue dc la Paix. Sitting in the dining room of the hotel one night, her bright hair radiant against the cool green ot her frock, Marcia missed Phil. "His chief's in (own and he's having dinner with him," Camilla explained. "Phil has a new idea he has worked out." "It's strange without him," she answered. 'Wot quite complete." Bob glanAd at her, then glanced away, but lie studied the stem of a tall goblet. "Slinll we dance?" He held out his arms. '"Lovely lady, I'm falling madly in love with yon!'" The musicians sang the melody through trumpet and clarinet and banjo. "I am," Bob said. "Can't we excuse ourselves and leave? I want to tell you about it." So Marcia got her cloak, Iho silver wrap that matched her bag and bracelets, and Ihey found a cab and went rolling across the town, as though romance were something that they would discover together. They dismissed the carriage at Monlmartrc. Music, sweet as though it had been strained of all harshness, rich and full as though the refining seive had nol compressed it, came from a low, dark building. Bob led the way inside, anri they found chairs in a darkened room where there were mafiy people who sipped sherry and listened (o music. As her eyes grew arctislomcd to the darkness, Marcia distinguished faces. There was a profile of a cameo clearness—dark hair looped over the ears—a bright frock. II was Hosita!
