A Worth While Service Without Fund Solicitation The Dud Casou post of the American Legion proposes to .send n handsome float to Hie tuition;)] convention of (he American Legion at Chicjtg-o in hile September emphasizing ICastcvn Arkansas' importance as :i cotton producing area. Tentative plans already formulated are to be presented at tonight's meeting of the local post and thu movement may spread shortly to other posts in Eastern Arkansas which will be asked to participate in sending the float. Naturally if such a Jloal is to Ije sponsored as an exhibit and drawing card for Eastern Arkansas it must not suffer by comparison with other floats in the Legion's parade. Therefore it is essential, if (here is to be a float at all, that it be a worthy one. There no drive for public subscriptions; to provide for live expense of such a float, which, when Ihc cost of building and transporting the float to and from (he convention is considered, will be substantial. If the float is definitely decided upon Dud Cason , and cooperating posts will see that it is provided without such a drive. An allocation of ?500 ' has already been made for HID float by state officials and the remainder of the fund necessary will be raised among Legion members and such cotton industries or users as care to contribute. Such, a float in a parade of such si/.c would undoubtedly help advertise-eastern Arkensa.s and (lie Legion's undertaking:, imaccompaiijed by a public drive for funds would be a civic enterprise of salutatory nature. Invisible,Fathers Thirteen hundred little children stand in the Yasukuni Shrine in Tokio. They are silent and sober, with the great black eyes of Japanese children. But they do not cry as they pray silently, with little heads bowed. They have been brought from every corner of Japan by a war relief organization, for a ceremony. And they all bave c oiiD thing in common—their fathers have been killed in the Chinese invasion. A general and prince, clinking with medals, speaks to them. Their fathers, are not dead, the voice assures them, only invisible, still watching them to see that they serve well the state their fathers have served. Which is the way of Ihc militarist OUT OUR WAY all over the world: not only to take away the most precious lives, but to insist that this is a very fine thing, ami to induce in the next generation the mood that will make Ihcm walk cheerfully up to the chopping block in (heir turn. The U. S. Attains First Place in CliGiiiistry Hack in (ho days of the World War, Uiu United Slalo.s was preLLy far bo- bind Jn the clicmk'di world. The ciil- (iiiff of!' of German dyostufl's and .similar material was riiiicUly felt wlieii the war beiran, and whim the great trans- allaiillc submarine Deiilschlaml made her historic trip to Baltimore, she carried valuable dyostufl's and chemicals as n large part of her precious cm-go. Kami with this situation, it became necessary lo develop the chemical technique for u'liidi the country had for. nicrly depended on Germany. So it was done. And .so well was it done that world leadership in chemistry has now, it is believed, sliifleil from Germany to the United States. Certain statistics assembled by the American Chemical Society indicate this, and Professor 10. J. Crane of Ohio Stale University believes that the United States now outranks nil countries both in research and industry in this field. Tin; United States was the only major country to show « gain ii, the number of chemical patents issued during (he past live years, the study indicated. Incidentally, this shift has had other ell'ecls, for with .10 per cent of all scientific'periodicals published coming from cither the United Slates or England, the English language is well on the way to becoming the world's predominating scientific language. U. S. chemists produce the greatest ' volume of published research, with Great Britain second. Germany, easily first a I. the time of the World War ("Oh, yon must know German if yoti- are going to study science!") has dropped to third place, while Russia and Japan arc moving up sharply. The rise of the chemical industry,' both from the practical and the research standpoint, bas been one of the outstanding phenomena of the industrial history of the past 20 years. In that time a small and relatively unimportant industry has risen to a place among the giants of that field. • This is all especially significant because chemistry i.s pre-eminently (he .science of the future, it is good to sec that the English-speaking peoples have maintained their place in the vanguard of advance into the fields of the future. 1 don't understand to this day where our money wcnl.-O.

Her f-flance was ordered to sea," "What does that mean — another mysterious naval order lo parade (he Heel in front of some foreign country's nose?" "Oh, no, Daddy. This— " But how could she say this was something i'pecial, without significance at all, except to Linda Storm? She picked up (he papers. "Bad news again, I'm afraid. Ililler — " "Oh, stop!" He rubbed his forehead. "Hitler! I gel so tired of hearing that name. A stupid, tor- iwttl egomaniac, driving- a world lo ruin! I get so tired of whole nations composed of dolts and fools. Brutality dressed, up in propaganda is still brutality. Why are they So blind?" '"Now, Daddy," she warned. "You don't want your blood pressure going up, (to you?" "It may as well go tip and kill me," he bit off savagely. "If I live, I'll be bombed some day. Kot much scio: in postponing the agony. Linda, my dear, there's only one Ihing I have to be profoundly grateful for — and Hint is, if war comes, your husband, will have sense enough to stick to his own war — the only glorious war there is." Her heart, turned over. Her husband. He meant George. She said hastily, "I'll run down and eel you Baker's Tiberius Ccasar. That always takes your mind off our times."

"Don't bother about the book." Ilis wise old eyes probed into hers. "1 may be sick, but I'm not blind yet. Something's the mailer with you. You've lost your bloom. You're not happy." Her hands curled into tight fisls. She had an insistent impulse to put her head on his shoulder, to blurt out the, truth. But she couldn't do it. His daughter in love will) a naval pilot! After what he had just said. Bravely, without shrinking from those loving eyes, she lied to her father for the first time in hi!r life. "I've been worrying about you, Daddy. I couldn't bear it if —if—" "My, my, my!" came Miss Uourkc's cheerful, strident tones. "You're the popular one, Linda Slqjpp! First you get an airmail IcllcY and now look—a telegram." She tramped into the room on her sensible, broad white oxfords, and handed Linda the yellow envelope with a little flourish. "If I didn't know you had y perfectly good man wailing, I'd think it was a beau, rushing you." "Telegram?" Daddy was asking swiftly. , Linda bit her lip. "It's from Mareia. She sends wires at (he slightest excuse." Deliberately, she ripped the envelope, open. She read one word —the signature. JIMMY. She crumpled Hie thing up in the palm of her hand. "Yes, that's all. She's remembered something she left out of her letter." * • • CAFE behind her own locked door, Linda smoothed out Jimmy's wire again. Jt had been sent from Washington, D. C.

He had left from Pensacola for Washington. He had readied someone in authority, and gotten what he wanted. But how had he gone over Captain King's head? It mur.t have taken a world o£ lying.

They had roasted wienies over an open fire, baked polalocs, made eoftce.

Last summer she had been sure that without her, he would not bo capable of doing his work. This summer, she knew better. George needed 210 one. His work was lonely nnd glorious, but it sprang from an inner compulsion. It was not to dazzle her ov anyone else that lie pcrsisled, endlessly, in the face of almost insurmountable obstacles. It was because within )iis own soul there was a love for perfection, an urgent need, a passion beyond .explanation. Microbes fascinated him. He was one o£ the lonely army who battled in quiet laboratories and wrote thoughtful papers on obscure and involved phenomena. No, he didn't need her. And never once in all those long-gone picnics had he stopped his talk of germs io Icll her she was lovely, or to kiss her lips. She hadiyt noticed, then.
