According lo the Japanese, the proverbially clever Chinese, have been jilnying mean tricks on their unsuspecting invaders. Chinese soldiers do IT their uniforms, Illler into the countryside buck of the Japanese lines and contrive to look like farmhands, day laborers, or what not. At a propitious moment they extract, weapons from secret hiding places and sally fortb to slaughter Japanese truck drivers, blow up Japanese supply trains, shoot, .Japanese sentries and military police, and in oilier ways make life uncomfortable for their enemies. All -of Ibis, sity the Japanese, is not the high-minded and cliivalric sort of fighting that was learned on the playing fields of Eton, and it obliges the sons of Nippon to burn Chinese villages, tear down farmhouses, and shoot a number of people who claim to he innocent civilians. You could argue, of course, that the Chinese can hardly be blamed for disregarding the rules of warfare, in view of the fact that Japan has insisted from the Nliirl thai this isVl' ;i war at all, but just an incident. But it is more interesting to reflect that, even the exponents of extreme ruthlessness in warfare look back longingly to the days when war was a formalized contest, carried on according to definite rules. Those rules, devised by general agreement to mitigate Ihe horrors of unrestrained savagery, provided thai, soldiers should light only soldiers, that some sort of code of fair play should cover (heir mutual killings, and that rival commanders should be able to trust each oilier, within limits. For a full century or more they have been breaking down. The code .still Hti geral in the American Civil War, although there were notable cases in which that war was fought without gloves. Since then things have grown much worse, until now passenger steamers are sunk without warning, defenseless towns are bumlied, civilians OUT OUR WAY are iimcliine-gunncd by aviators, and prisoners arc executed in wholesale lots. The last trace of "civili/cil warfare" has vanished; and it would be just as well if we all realized the fact. For while this world could safely contemplate the chances of war when war was fought l>y professionals within definite limits, it cannot do so nowadays, when war has no limits at all and babes in their cradles are the most likely victims. And a world that cannot shape its policies in the light of that fact is heading for a tremendous catastrophe. . . . As Handsome Sell Kvery .so ul'ltm something else comes .to light that strengthens man's conviction that this is getting to | K . a wo . man's world. According to a reporl from experts in the petroleum marketing field, "A young man good to look upon ... is our Ijc.sf asset in the highly competitive business of selling oil station products." Women, you arc reminded, do 75 per cent of the buying at gas stations, and handsomer and handsomer attendants are being sought. There's' nothing unfair about, that, bill how about a few corresponding j m . provcmonts in the personnel of other fields? |f women like to buy from men, why not just take all those pretty girls out of the women's department stores, where men rarely g () , and have them I ratio places with the men who now sell automobiles, cigars, haberdashery, hardware, or parking space? A'o Harm Dona, II. was reassuring lo J T;U J about Hie u\vear-old Woods twins the oilier day. Don't you remember the Woods twins? Johnny was "scientiliciilly conditioned" for the lirsl two years of his life, as a child-behavior experiment. Jimmy was let alone. Anyway, the boys were trailed around by a reporter recently, (lie day before their sixth .birthday. The reporter observed Johnny and Jimmy splashing Wll u, v oll C11( .,j 01)R , r . <J<j|(|) _ ii.v leaping in the air "like a pony"; Jimmy shouting and spilling an ashtray; Johnny shouting am i knocking a chair over; Jimmy tasting Johnny's ice cream; Johnny pulling sugar in Jimmy\ water; Johnny barricading himself in a phone booth. Everything, obviously, lias turned out all right after all. Jolinnv is a perfectly normal boy despite his scien- tilic conditioning, and Jimmy is a perfectly normal boy despite the fact that he has had no supervision.

Shu recalled what Dr. Gray had told them about the drums, Ibal tile natives could send a message more quickly than il could be telephoned. Little had she realized that they might have an opportunity to test the fact. Long minutes passed, and they stood in the roadway, a grotesque assembly. Then a welcome sound echoed through (he hills, the sound of an approaching automobile. In the long half hour they had been standing on the road, no other car had passed them. They waited eagerly for its headlights to appear; when he saw them the man waved his lantern as a signal. The car was coming oul from the city, and Joyce watched incredulously. Mad the message actually been sent? A moment lalcr she knew. car drew up beside them The and stopped, and the first voice she liravcl wus Mrs. Porter's, fretful <uid bcralitig.

We've been time they had all been together since Ihe impromptu announcement of Isobel'.s engagement, and as Joyce met Dick's eyes across the table, she had .the gratifying impression that tlic romance was already beginning to cool. Mr. Gregory still chafed under the strain of the afternoon; lie seemed determined to magnify the incident, until he became a poor tortured victim about whom the voodoo-worshipers wore alrcadj' lighting the iircs of destiny. "Haiti's a filthy, horrible place," Isobcl consoled him, "and I don't sec why civilized people want lo visit il." She too was irriumh: this evening. Her lips were pushed oul their old pout, and her voice was edged with sarcasm. "You seem lo run inlo hard luck, Gregory," Dr. Gray observed. "You go ashore and you walk inlo trouble. You stay aboard to play poker while the rest of us cavort Havana, and you lose your shirt." Dick looked up quickly. "It wasn't as bad as all thai," Gregory amended. "I only lost about $12. If I'd gone to llic Casino il might have cosl me 10 times that much." Dick's mouth hardened. "You didn't go ashore in Havana?" he asked quickly.
