All thjs sort of tiling wants to be thought thiousfh pretty carefully. Ceitainly )t ii true that any prCd- suie exerted on national policies at so ciitical a time fiom the point of view of mere pailj advantage is unthinkable Ceitainly it is true that once a ynl- icy has been legally decided upon by Congress as rein-eseiitatiyes of the people, a "united fiont" will be presented to the world in support of it- Bui \vhdt is just, as certainly net tine is that theie is any obligation on the people to lender unthinking aup- poit to any policies. which they hnvu not had ^s diiect a hand as possible in making Sonie a,rgue that any- ap- peaiai\ce of ^'disunity" might encourage oi discouiagc certain .rulers abroad in certain policies, and that thorcl'or'j the Awoncaii i)eople ought to suspend sill debate on whiit they want to do, and simply do as they- are told, This is not a very cogent argument. In the fust place, we are apt to 0x1155- geiate oiu influence abroad. It is ex- tiemely doiibttul whether the. prospect of Ameiican pailidjittlioii or non-par^ ticipation in Emope's tangled all'airs has any real deterrent ell'cct on any-. bod}' It has not had such an ell'ect in the past, coilainly it did not in 1,917. Theie- is little evidence thai it IIRS done so since. : This countiy, with its. ins.tiuitions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. The chief imigislrate derives all his authoiity fiom the popple. . . . By the fiame of the government uiuJur which wo live, this same people have widely gnen theii public servants bui little power foi mischief. . . . Why shou[d theie not be a pa,tieiit coa(i- dente in the ultimate justice of tin: people? So spoke Abialwrn Lincoln, at a time moie cutical foi the country of his day than this ct.i> of ours. He had faith that the people would decide rightly. He uiged calm thought and careful consideration, not unthinking "unity." The 'time for unity is after the psu- ple have decided on their coui\se, decided in a legal and deliberate manner, OUT OUR WAY aflpr full before that deliberate decision, any "unity" that is siinulatec! by "cpali- tioiis''' and ''councils" is a delusion, per- h.aps a ilnnjfcr. If it be lnj.<> that, the sympathy of most of the American people is already ti\ed. regardjng the Kuropeaii \vs\\; il is certainly not true that there is any unity on what; ought to be. done about it. And until such decision is reached, at least- on broad lines, it is idle to talk of ijnity, Europe knows, and has ampla evidence, that this unity will not, be lacking once dclinite decisions have been reached.

She was a plain, unimaginative person, thoroughly satisfied with her position us bookkeeper. "Miss Herrod is gelling old," Mr. Fellows objected. "She's only 38." "Well—that's getlin;; along." Marian wauled lo say, "But she's sale—she doesn't want my job." Thirty-eight—gelling along —in six years Marian would be 38 —and the last six years had passet like ;i brief, monotonous whiff of nothing. "You're unfair," she remarked with spirit and the frankness engendered by years of acquaintance. "You men are just getting started at 38." Using Miss Herrod as si subject, she was arguing in her own behalf. He shrugged. "Just the same, Herrod is getting old. We can't lei the office go to" seed. We've got to be constantly on the lookout for new talent and fresh slants." - "You're not planning to lei Miss Herrod go—?" fearfully. He pursed his lips. "i\'o. Her job doesn't demand personality.

Carma's yearly trips abroad were the envy of her friends. "A week ago." "Why haven't you called me for lunch?" Possibly Carma hud found ;> suitable winter outfit for her in Paris. Marian's mind made a hurried and doubtful estimate of her bank account. "1 haven't been in the mood. Mai-inn—have, you heard about Pete?" Carma's voice was thick and unsteady. i "Yes, D;m told me."

Replacing Ihe instrument, Marian attacked the mail, slitting the envelopes and glancing at (lie con- Icnls. Making several piles oE the open letters, her mind reycrled to Sally Blake. "Perhaps Sally should be given a lillle more opportunity," she said, putting out a feeler. Mr. Fellows answered promptly, "I think so." She couldn't let il go al thai.

What happened?" "I don't know— exactly." Marian did know, she remembered the incident wilh bilterness. There bod been a Question as to whether Dan or Sims Crane should receive the sales managership. The fact that Sims had a dependent wife and two children had tipped the scales in his favor. Marian had refused to blame herself at Ih'u lime and she siill clung to the theory thai, if Dan had been good enough, capable enough— "flow's he getting along now?" Mr. .Fellows persisted. "Just the same," she said, "fie makes just what he did when we were married. He was cut during the depression—thql's; when I came back lo work.

Marian wrinkled her nose disdainfully. "Budget—f hate the very sound of the word." "Too many modern women feel )iko that. It's the answer to the ever-increasing number of women in offices and stores." Marian stared at him. Was ho paving the way to tell her that she had a husband who earned, that her place should be given to a girl who was dependent upon herself? In Ihe present economic lulionary ideas into his head? And why the sudden interest in Dan? "Maybe Dan would be happier, though I doubt it," she said, with 2n cdginess iu her tone which had become noticeable during the past year, the year since Sally's coming • to the office. "But I wouldn't bu happier. I've stepped up my way of living and I can't come down." "How 'do you know you'd have to slay down?" He did have something in his mind. Apprehension made Marian's hands unsteady. "I've an idea that if Dan were on his own—i£ il were up Ip him— he'd surprise you by getting somewhere." Mr. Fellows leaned toward her, shaking a finger impressively. "Listen, my dear—you've done everything lo hold Dan back. You've robbed him of bis rightful place in society, the head of a home.
