'Let's Not Be Beastly' A truly alarming symptom of the "let'k not be beastly to the Germans" frame of mind if) seen in an announcement by Herman J. Fischer, president of-the Amateur Athletic Union Central Association, (hat Jap and German athletes "will be. welcomed" at the next Olympic Games, to be held ns soon as possible after the war. "After DIG last war," says Mr. Fischer, "spectators did not look upon athletes of Germany as men who had started a war against us, but considered them as individuals and respected them for their abilities." That's lovely. Lot's forget Lidice and the '"death march" of the Hataan prisoners, the crematoriums of Maidanek nnd the execution of the first Tokyo raider.s. Let's forget the ghettos Fiul the concentration camps, the hun- drfds of documented accounts of tor- lure by Japs and Germans. Mr. Fischer would havo us consider thnt as individuals,, .Japs and Germans are fine, decent, sportsmanlike chaps. Can it be that wo an; beginning to forget the sadistic cruelty of some of our individual enemies, or did some of us never believe that it really happened ? Are (he English and French, the Poles and the Czechs, the Russians and Chinese to stand up and cheer the German and Jap athletes, forgetting their millionr, of dead and maimed? We must live in this world with the enemy peoples. Hut we arc not obliged tp credit them with, sportsmanship, nor Ip forget the mild reproof of social ostracism. SIDIGLANCeS Another Unemployment Problem " '" Volatile Policies In tl:e light of recant political events in EiTcpe, climaxed by Foreign Secretary Eden's statement to Commons, it seems thai Britain is commotted lo a foreign policy 01 definitely -.Tory complexion. But it is also evident that do- mcsti'ally Britain b committed to a very' liberal r.rcgrar.i. Such things as the Deveniige Plan and the ; diift toward state-controlled industry are far to the left of our New Deal. • Together, these two policies are . a pretty volatile mixture, as Mr. Churchill - nnd Mr. Eden must be fully aware. And ivheii .the fighting in .Germany ends, the lid-might-blow off the kettle that now ccntnins the mixture. , So far as we can learn, Britain's domestic 1 'program seems to have more arpail than her foreign-policy. And if Mr. Churchill and. Mr. Eden are interested in a postwar continuation of ""(•he pre.sent government, the difference in popularity might be a tleterminihg t'actcr in closing 'the present rift between bur Sta'.o Department and the British Foreign Office.

"Joel, if Drusus would I should be quite come now, happy." He replied vnilrtly, mindful of the disturbed state .of her body and mind. "It is likely he conies with the boals returning this month." She protested as one certain of her knowledge, "Nay. He will not come. Ho has not come since I married thee, save when he took Malachi from me." 'He took the child? But thou 'CONCKKTK ^r i" "Hum C*f.tfO»a Til* & C«!»er« Co. IN Bethlehem, in the month of ••- Tisri, when the summer's heat reached iis final overpowering peak, when men sat upon Uic housetops sipping a cooling drink sweetened with rose petals, and Iheir sandals were laid aside and their feet washed of the day's dust, Iherc were those who spoke of Michal. When the threshing floors were swept of their grain nnd the fat figs promised a goodly harvest when apples hung templing to the daughters of Eve and the olive harvest should have been uppermost in the minds of men; who grapes were ripening, in this sabbatical year when many would go free, there were men in Bethle hem who wondered would Micha go free at last from the bonds o the past. But there was no breath purity in Jerusalem's market, an seeking to Icnrn her secret there Joel heard no word of Michal, B that remembering her promise o a child for him, he found it eas io be gentle with her and was amazed at her sweetness when their quarreling was laid aside. She was not always thus, yet there were times when she spoke of Malachi, regretting his absence, and once oi Drusvis. All unaware idsl seiid him, surely!" he said, mazed. She was loath to admit her cart's desire to Jonathan's brolh- r, and spoke sharply. "How houlrist thou know how my heart origcd to keep the'lad? Or hast tiou no mind for how il panteth or the return of Drusus?" '.'Will he bring the boy?" Joel would tell thee, my husband," she said in mingled surprise and wonder. "I jvas eyes to the blind and feet to the lame and : there was none that held me in contempt un(il thou didst'return to do so." He disowned her charge. "Thou are held in my hcarl, Michal, and all-my will is not enough to remove thee." •. . His words pleased her so' that she recovered her happy spirit and leased him gently. "Yet in I thine heart thou makes'! me a byword of the people, and aforelimc I was a tabrel." Joel led her into the vineyard, her arms within his own, the sun casting a mantle of gold upon their shoulders. "Thou twisteth the words of my lips and thine own lips deny the love thou knowcst," he said. She pretended astonishment, "Nay, surely love for me is nol in thine heart! Thou dost cherish me for the child I carry." "For thyself and for the child," he said honestly. "Michal, when shall be the lime when thou shall be delivered?" Reluctance was a drag upon her words, "Thou must be patient, Joel. 1'or il is not soon that n\y TT -'•'• isked, and his own affection lor Malachi was in his voice. •Her hand released itsclt from iis lhat held il, and in the dark oi her' curls iis tremor was not visible. "Nay, Joel, he will not bring the child," Michal's voice was resigned. .'.'•.*.** 'TIS resolve to be gentle with •~ her broke under her words, 'Surely thine anger against Jonathan is of the devil's prompting," lie exclaimed. The dead have no voice yet Ihou art denying forever the voice of Malachi to the land of his father, and his word in the counsel chambers. How canst thou hold thy grudge even to thine own heart's sorrow?" "I may not tell thee," Michal said impatiently. "I may jiot tell thee and thou hast closed thine cars to the words of those who would." "Should ri Wan ask knowledge of his wife from the lips of other men?" he rebuked her. • Michal gazed at him in wonder. "Thou necdcst nol fear what they time comelh." He could wait if in the wailing she would be as pleasing as lately she had been, her 'longue less sharp and bitter and her words of Malachi the words of grief. "Thou wilt bring an acacia soon, Joel?" she asked. ' * * * TIER request met his ever un- 1 - 1 satisfied w o n d c r. "Why •ouldst thou have an acacia?" "That I might plant it. , That it should Tend the purity of its bloom lo my heart's unflowering wilderness," she told him quietly. "Thou speakcst riddles I may not understand," he answered. "For surely thy lovely face is the blossom of lliine heart, and there Is none fairer." , , "Jonathan," she said. "Jonathan found it not so." "Did not Jonathan love thee?" he asked bolc'<»y. She hesitated, uncertainty written on her countenance. Then wilh a smile she dismissed the past. "I recall not whether I asked him," she said. . (To lie Continued) ...^
