There nu'ghl Uo a use i'or a word liko thai sometime. You never can loll. Paul C. Smith, San Fi'imcisco editor who toured Europe recently will) Herbert Hoover, writes that there "'ill bo no new war, that the question is sim'- ply how long it will take for the old World War to return to the trenches. The language is good, but it might have trained its sights on a little fur- thcr object. Language of the s;uiie_l<iiid might have been used be-fore IDl'jrSmitlTunT-"' pruM/eb Ihat no country wants war today. Every participant in the World War, just before participation became a fact, declared that war was being forced upon it. The World Wai- was not the world's first war. The question before 19M was not when the new war would begin, but how long it would lie before tlic old wars returned to the trenches. Atteiwards, there was no new peace. The \\oiUI returned to that old peace that has mado jl.s name iiieiuiingle,ss, that delusion of every''war's liia^ing that is merely a hysterical (ritue whose new Londitio'n.s force upon it the seeds of its own destruction. . This present war-wit,houl-lrendies can scarcely be blamed wholly on the World War. .The'deeper cause is lo bo found iii. those primitive concepts of inleinational relations which make every "pence" simply a little soft music before the curtain goes up on the next murderous act. During the next w;ir-in 7 lho-lrent-lies men will be.wondering, with reasonable J'eai, liow long it will take that comparatively brief period of active win-faro to lesolve itself into the perilous .slale- niate we now have, That is, if there arc many men left to do the wondering.

'J'he lilies would give away tlie nature of Uie movies then, of course, but if it Jnirt loo (iwfiilly Hollywood could con- line its adaptation work to the books whose lilies don't mean anything anyway. Which raises Ihe point that the Kc:leral Trade Cunimis.siun eoulil do sonic jrnoil wm-k in Ihe book field, loo. Maybe (lie movies got thai Irkk-tillo habit from (lie publishers. Afore than one man has bought a book with an advenliii-ous-HOiimliiijj lillc and then found (hat il was a book about an adventurous old lady. i'Vom Ihe publishing field the commission could proceed to the salad- namiiig liuld, and then to Ihc iicrl'iimc- naming licld, and . . .

What do you bet thai (he Iragon wa.s empty? )t must have been in Uanuim's salad days, maybe before that, even, tluit this stunt was first mtroilucnl. And every circus parade that lias ever 1 um- bered along Main Street then has either hud its really breath-taking al- trarlion snugly boarded up out of sight in a special wagon or left it behind on tlie lot and just given the wagon an airing.

Joyce .stared out of her port, scarcely believing that llic angry seas could scltlc down so peacefully overnight. Far off on the horizon, she could see a narrow, dark shore line, marking Ihe division between grccn-bhic sky ;ind deep-blue sea. That was Bermuda in llic distance, and in another few hours she would rjc- milking in the shadow of ils royal palms. That is, provided she decided lo leave (he ship. . . .

Already a good number of passengers were assembled, ull eager to go ashore on this first boat. He called lo her, and drew her out of range o[ the crowd. "You're gohiji ashore with me, aren't you, Joyce?" he asked hopefully. "I'd love to, Dick, but-" "Bul what?" "Mi's. Porter asked me lo be her assistant on the shore excursion, and I promised that 1 would." He frowned. "You don't have lo do anything like that, Joyce.' "Bill I lo. I'm terribly grateful for the opportunity. And we'll all he together, Dick," "Who is all?" ''i"ie I-OJ-ICTK, you and f. We'll lake the last carriage."

"Oil, gootl morning, Mrs. Porter." "Good morning, my dear. Arc you feeling better'.'" "I'm so well that I believe it was all imagination." • "Not at all. Your first trip, you know. 1 suppose we're hardened to such weather—oh, it does bolliev Isobcl, terribly, but she managed to gel to dinner. . . . But now, my dear, I've been worrying about you. You didn'l, 1 hope, lose your shore excursion tickets. Or hadn't you bought, them?" Joyce smiled ruefully. "Yes, I bought tiiem—" "And they were in your bag, too? How unfortunate! How very distressing!" She shook her bead sympathetically. "However, I believe I can manage a way for you—us my assistant. Usually I ask one of the stewardesses, or, as in your case, one of the younger passengers. All you do is collect Ihe tickets for me, at the carriage station in Hamilton.-And:xcc Unit the giicsis arc assigned lo tnc carriages and started oft promptly. Then we'll all go together, you all there is to it, I suppose." Drawing alongside the wharf, Mrs. Porter gave last minute instructions. Joyce took her stand eagci-ly, but soon she was beset with dink'uilies which Mrs. Porter had not explained. Some passengers wanted to change their plans at this last minule. Forty minutes later, Joyce saw her last charge safely installed in the last, carriage. And not until then, when she was standing alone at the carriage stand, did she real- ise that the Porters, and the last carriage, had gone off without her! "Morning, Miss Milner." One ot the shin's officers, a young man from llic purser's olliec, .slood beside her, and she realized that Ihe second tender was docking. "Did you miss your parly'!" he asked. "So H seems—' "That's tough." He remembered suddenly that Miss Milner was Ihc young lady who had lost her pockclboolc. So he suggested pleasantly: "Slick around a min- ult-, until I yet my people .started. I have an cxlra ticket, for an assistant." lie winked. "I heard that story before," she said dubiously. "Mrs. Porter suggested it—" "So that's il!" He was plainly .surprised. "Funny she didn'l gel the extra ticket from me.... Well, BY MARION WHITE CqpyiqKt. r)38, N£A Serve*.
