Strange, How Parlies For-gol Anns Issue! ]f you can ranomliCT liow liol ami bollici'cd everybody was ficUinj! n ywir or so ajjo over llic actions of Ilio miiiiilions itutker.s, you may think il a Irillc slriinjrc llinl Ilio • grail ''American party plaU'onm had .so litllu l<> say about thii ssnlijccl. The sennlc foinmiUee certainly showed us thai Urn Hunt's which arc clone by and for the men who make the munitions of war can be of the lushest importance to (lie ordinary citizen. There was, nl one lime, a j;i>oil deal of talk about strong govern incut action to regulate this trade into some- tiling like an approach to civilized behavior^ .Someone even sujr.KC.sled mildly that tlio business ought to be nationalized. Bui all flinl excitement SCCIIIK to have died down, and our two major parties found thai they bad .singularly little to recommend to their followers in regard to munitions. \Ve had our disclosures, we got nil stirred up by them, iind then we proceeded to forget them, in the good old American way. It is worth remembering, however, thai the old game is still going on in the accepted manner. As an object lesson, there is an article of The American Spectator describing some recent' activities of the munitions makers of Europe. It will bear study. Germany, feverishly rearming, has bought huge, quantities of essential raw materials from France. About ;i year ago the French government made a stern show of embargoing such shipments. Bui for some reason il failed to stop the exportation of French iron ore— the most essential of all raw materials for a nation which is building guns, shells, tanks, and warships. So German imports of French ore have risen from l,ir>fi,{>2l tons in 1033' to 0,861, Gil tons in 1935. When the next tCnropuan war comc's, French soldiers will have the consolation of knowing that they are being lorn asunder by weapons made of good French ore. But the trade isn't one-sided. The Geimans will have a similar consolation. Mr. Ilaiiighen points out thai Krupp torpedo equipment is being delivered to France steadily; that the famous "Jtaginol line" ol forts along i ' '" the frontier is equipped with ' Dicsti'" motors of German manufacture; and thai the synthetic nitrate with which (he French are making high explosives is coming into France from German factories. All thisi to be sure, is happening in lOuropo. lint it is a sample of the w;iy the international' munitions trade works; and, in a world which is as beset by the -danger of war as this one, il is a matter of overwhelming importance. You would think that the •munitions (rude would have provided the two iiartics with one of their principal lalkiug points. Somehow it didn't, A first-rale "issue" is lying around fairly begging someone to pick it up and go to town wilh it. —Hruce Cation. Hail, Water Ilabiai! The most popular sport in lhe United Slates is neither baseball nor t'oolhull, golf nor tennis. It is, on the contrary, the age-old sport of swimming. This finding is reached by stalilic- ians of the National Uecreation Association, who report that in (0.35 no fewer thnn <U>,500,000 people went to lhe public benches mid IK,()()0,0()0 to the. outdoor swimming pools, v This compares with a seasonal participation in Iviseball of 10,250,000 people anil in golf of slightly more I him <J,i>00,000. Just what moral should bo drawn from all this by a conscientious commentator we do not quite know; unless, perhaps, il l )c thai swimming, the most informal of all sports, and the cheapest, is also Uic most, enjoyable.

K0\\ GO ON WITH TUB STOBY CHAPTER X M ARC IA'S first reaction, as she saw the intimacy of that corner table where Bob and Camilla sal, was relief. Once upon a lime, such n brief lime, too, she would have experienced a swill, hurling pang because Bob l>ad chosen another. Not tonight. She led the way to the table, sat down, chatted gaily, ordered hot milk and toasled waters, all the lime aware of a new Independence dial was like a lovely, releasing tide. Vhi! did not think Ihnt Boh h:.d any particular interest in Camilla. Rather, he believed, that Mareia's c.v-fiance was reverting to the feline trick of arousing jealousy. The end! Bob should be trounced, and he'cl like to do it. Camilla, he reasoned, who cared nothing for Bob and knew Ihul the man mattered to Marcia, shouldn't have accepted a lale invitation from Bob. Oh the devil— "Excuse me, all o£ you, won't you? I'm getting oil at dawn co I think I'll turn in." lie left abruptly. Five minutes later Marcia said, "I'm setting sleepy, too. I'll sec yon in the morning." "Wait a minulc or two. We'll EO along," Boh sa id, but Marcia Ehook her head. "I migtil get awake and I don't like lo lie and count while sheep. •Good night, Marcia. Goodby Dob" * « * jy]AliCIA saw Phil oil the next morning—saw him oft in a gray dawn and felt like crying because he was going away. "Marcia, you 'wore grand (o get up and say goodby to me." he said. bluo eyes warm and strong hands very firm on her fingers. "Those other sleepyheads haven't any manners." t Maybe she would never sco him again. He might not return to Paris, or sho might be gone when he came. Standing In tho lobby, Marcia thought of these things with a sickening lessening of her spirits. This was goodby, Phil was thinking. Nol farewell or au re- voir or auf wiedcrschen. Murcin wus going to marry another man and there was no need for her to ever know that he had been simpleton enough to wish that her rejected suitor had stayed in the discard. "Goodby, Marcia. And—luck!" "Just—so long, Phil." Then, as unexpectedly to herself as to the man who held out his hand, Marcia reached up, kissed him, and drew away. "For luck, Plftl." * * * gllE didn't wail for his answer. Half ashamed, half glad, she hurried away. Therefore, she did not know that the man stood where she had left him for a minute before he motioucu io the porter to slow his knapsack in a taxieab. "Good thing you're clearing out, my lad," 1:3 told himself. "You couldn't take much more of that without making a fool oi yourself." U was late that same afternoon that Marcia definitely refused Bob. "You're llic handsomest man I know, with one exception," she (old him. "You make love divinely and t hope you'll nsk me to tea sometimes. But marriage, Bcbbie —I'm afraid not." "As you say, of course." He didn't pleat! his auit nnd she wondered if perhaps Camilla was mallcring to him. Camilla had money, too—more even than she had. "I'm going down to Nice tonight," she went on, making up her mind about an invitation that had come a day or two before. "I have sonic friends who have a villa—Cam knows them, too. Then after tint I think I'll be going home. I'll be bumping into yon on Fifth Avenue some day soon 1 ." Seated on the train, that evening, she reflected that as easily as though everybody would meet again in a day or two, she had watched two people, two men, go of the black crepe jacket ot her suit. Soot sifted in and left smudges on the crisp whiteness of her frilly blouse and bordered the perky white ribbon mi her shiny black straw hat. Pretty soon, she would he by the sea. Slio might take a dip l:2fore she went to bed. She must decide what she wanted to do wiUi the rest of the summer, next winter —all the summers and winicts from now on lo an indefinite age when sh« would bo loo old lo caro if there were moons or rains or wrinkles or springs. She loafed in beach pajamas, apricot, blue, tan, and green, for the next week. Slie danced At night in colored chiffons, cool and clinging. She went lo Monle Carlo one sunny afternoon and she heard the band concerts a couple of limes at dusk. Sho decided Hint she .might as well sail soon, bul couldn'l qnile leave. Phil was somewhere in France—a piclurc postcard, forwarded by tho holel, had come from him. II showed a fishing village, looking like a stage set. He said he was developing a good appetite. That wns all. + * * CHE did not sail, though. The u Paris Tribune carried a message that delayed-her going. It announced that Camilla's father's fortune was gone. Knowing that il was tottering, he had t alien a wild gamble—and lost. The statement was brief and terse. Camilla, though, was no longer wealthy. . , "Oil, the poor child," Man/" "i Crcighlon, who was . Marat's ,1, hostess, exclaimed. "She needs Id' be gny just now! We'll telephone her to come down and r~[ up a party. She needs fun." "She may want to go home," Marcia suggested. ."We might meet up on the same boat and I could do a Pollyminislv sliait by her." "It's no lime for mourning, I Icll you," Marion .insisted and picked up the telephone. "I'll get her right away. Her father .and stepmother never did have much intcresl in her. They gave her money and scl her/loose. Now they cnn'l even give' her money, but she'll marry well. Slio may make up her mind about Phil Kirkby now." "Yes, of course she will," Mar- cln ngrecr!, wondering why (lie admission hurt when il couldn't matter to her, one way or another, what Phil did. When Marion liiing- up the phone she smiled triumphantly. "She's coming tomorrow. And she wauls to bring u young man with her. She said you knew him. A Robert somelhing. 1 didn't catch the name." "My once-upon-timc - affianced. Bob." "No!" Marion's china blue eyes grew rounder. "They're that way?" "I don 1 ', know. Dili Hob's poor, tec. no—she's p. \/i*» woman. She'll lake Phil now." . . "She may have la.. She said that, she'hadn't any social'tricks*' except llic ones Elsa Maxwell knew, so she guessed she would have lo cdhsidcr rnalriinony. I wonder where Phil, could be reached—I'm going .to fplay Cupid and get him hcre^-pronto!" ITn Hi. (',,„! mm-m scientific observation is applied' when conditions are merely beginning lo be wrong. If a baby Is ill. it cries wilh a fretful and moaning ci*y which differs from that of the healthy, baby. ' The moment n child shows] signs o illness, it should bo put' lo bed. If the child Ls an Infant, I the food should be cut down to. half the strength; if it is an older I child, only fluid food should be given. If its skin seems to be hot- \ ler than usual, Its temperature 1 should be taken. j In the presence of n fever, it is' well to call the doctor immediate-' ly. Do not give any medicine- even a cathartic or a laxative—| until the doctor orders It.
