Now the practical objections to (his arc .so niiiny and so obvious that il is hardly necessary lo nienlion them. The really .significant tln'mr is that (iie more fact that the proposal was made indicates how desperate (he human race is growing under the spur of it's own failure to become civili/ed, and how fuxxy its thinking is under such circumstances. No man who jiretends lo be civilized can look on the. bombing of cities, Ihe wholesale destruction ol' non-coin- < batants, Iho indiscriminate attacks on densely-populated districts, without; feeling (he most profumid horror. ' -Rut to suggest, by (he way of CHIT, (hat we elaborately erect neutral zones and transport children to them by the hundreds of thousands is s lo confess our utter impotence to solve a problem which we ourselves created. • For the way to stop this hunw, after all; is simple: slop bombing cities. No child was ever killed by a bomb thai hit an infantry platoon, an airport, a dockyard, an arsenal, a foil, a barracks or a battleship. Children are killed only whin I be generals send (heir bombers out to at•tack the districts where (he children live.

And unless we can think of something belter than neutral v.onc.s, we convict ourselves along with them.

Her mollirr ivnriu her ol difficultly, CHAPTEK VIII JACKIE knew dial her mollier J had not meant that she ought to try to slop Roger from making his stratosphere Irial flight'be- cause ci[ the danger anil risk involved. Evelyn did not know anything about lhal. But she did understand human nature. And Ihe danger involved when another woman came into the- picture, cspeciolly such an exceptionally attractive woman as Beryl Mel- 10SC. II was lioger ivlio phoned Jackie that next day to ask her to postpone her flying lesson once more. He fold Jackie that the plans for his flight were practically "in the bag." He seemed so steamed up aboul this that his conversation had been almost incoherent and decidedly sketchy. It was only afterwards thai .Jackie realized he liad not mentioned the fact that lie, too, had Kono into New York the day lie- lore. He had not said a word about having lunched al the Colony. Nol that she cared, Jackie told herself rather more emphatically than was necessary. Not that it was any business of hers where Tioger went m- with whom he lunched. Tlicir engagement was only a ruse, anyway. Several clays had passed and he had not called again. They were the longest, dreariest, days Jackie had ever known. Oh, the sun was shining brightly enough. Too brightly. There wasn't a cloud in the sky. Perfect flying weather. Which, of course, was the only reason why Jackie sat around Ine house, waiting for the phone or Ihe doorbell to ring. She supposed when Roger gol time io give her another- lesson llic sky would start to rain cals and dogs. It was, enough to make iinyone Jccl low to have lo miss these heavenly sprint; days that should have been spent trying one's wings, in- slead of cramped vip indoors. * * * jj'JNALLY Jackie could not stand il anj' longer. She decided to drive out lo tlic Held, even (hough ru»:ei- had not given ;my signs of being alive, or of remembering the slightest dilTerencc ID Jicr, whether he was or nol. Which was rather a contradiction considering the way her hear! leaped into licr throat and her pulses storied racing madly the moment she saw him. He was standing liy Ihc side of a plane, n silver ship that Jackie did nol remember ever having seen at Hie (ield he-fore, talking with someone, H wasn't until she was within hailing distance — and hud made u •"mistake" ot calling his name — that Jackie realized a second later Ilio person he was talking wild was Beryl Melrosc. Jackie would have gone on into the hangar, but Roger motioned tor lief to join them. "I want you to know Jiickie Duim, Mrs. Melrose," lie said, Hashing his engaging grin. "Jackie's one of my best .students; she's milty about ilyitig. And — " his grin broadened as he gave Jackie an open and knowing plans for a big and dance with wink, "incidentally Jackie and I i arc engaged." "'rilAT'S which she hoped was not lost on him—"Molhcr will expect you at our announcement party a wt/jk from next Friday." In spile of the fact that Jaclit; had (old her Ihey could not make any definite plans until after Roger's flight, Evelyn had gone ahead with her parly, a dinner over a hundred guesls. H would he bail enough anyway, but if Roger did nol show up, it would' be a farce. "Why don't you come, too?" Jackie asked on a sudden impulse, addressing Mrs. Melrosc. She would show Roger (hat she did nol care! "I'd like very much lo come," Beryl Melrosc returned promptly in her smooth, effortless way. Eicr dark eyes, lookin.; into Jackie's 1 , seemed, however, lo see through the younger girl's pretense. "It is indeed nice of you to invite me." "I am very glad !o know voii indeed," Beryl Melrosc said cordially, extending her ] 1; ind. .She was even more attractive than at distance. She had Ihc most beautiful big brown eyes Jackie had ever seen. Her skill was like a gardenia petal. But what Jackie noticed—and envied—mosl of all was her poise. For some reason Jaekie felt all hands and feel, as though she did not know what lo tray, cr how to act. Maybe it was because of Roger's remark about tlicir engagement. Jackie felt siie could have .-.lain him gladly for making it. Certainly lhal wink had nol been necessary. If Mrs. Mclrosc had seen il, what on earth would she think? * * * J?OGER seemed to have forgotten lhat he had promised to sec Iliis engagement business through to (he bitter cud and that they had agreed they must behave as though il were a reality before other people. "Sorry i haven't had liyic lo phone you," he said now, making mailers worse, instead of bolter. "Haven't had a minute, have vie, Beryl?" So it was "Beryl" already! They must have been spending ,a^ot of lime together. "I've been' busy myself," Jackie said glibly.' 'Busy doing nofliing. Which-hW Ijccti' Hit: hardest thing she had'• ever tried lo ilo. "Before I forget it, Roger—and in case you continue swell," lioger saiil heartily. But lie looked from one lo the other of them in a sort of puzzled masculine way. Perhaps- he felt (he undercurrent in Ihe air. "You'll be glad lo know," lie said lo Jackie, "lhal everything is hunky-dory—thanks to Beryl." His smile now was just for her. "I'm to make a few experimental trial flights for altitude first right here. Then Beryl and 1 will go out'to the coast—that's so I can have a tail-wind—and then for the night! I hope lo do 450 mile,,' at least. There'll he a sealed barograph installed, ot course, for recording. The seal will not be broken until 1 deliver it at Washington. Doesn't il sound pretty thrilling? Jackie? Aren't you pleased ,is punch?" ' II sounded as though everything was very definite. Entirely loo definite for anyone lo put a stop lo, even if lie wished. And Beryl Melrose was to accompany Roger to Ihc coast. While Jackie sat home—doing nothing. "II sounds good," Jaekie admitted, but try as- she might she could not make her voicc sound as though she really meant il now. "Of course pleased," she made another I'm at- Icmpl. What on earth was wrong with her? Anyone would Ihink she didn't want Roger lo have his big chance! "I think. it's wonderful,". Elit; cndeil, IJul sornevyhal. lamely,,,.
