But (here arc limes when it docs seem tlwl llu; eultl- ly practical realist can gel into more of ;i tangle than a do/en idealists put What. ails. Hit.' international sul-up in Europe these days, if not a dose ol'» super-realism, applied cold-bloodedly by practical men whose boasl it is that they have tossed idealism overboard as a delusion and a snare? We. arc witnessing right now the final death-rattle of the League of Nations. Wh'en. Britain and France inform the League that they are giving formal recognition to Italy's conquest <>f Ethiopia, the League is just about I'Wid-y for the mulci'lakcr. And wbon llicy follow that by requesting the League to abandon the Slimson policy . of refusing to recogni/.e territories; acquired by force the work o[ nailing down the cofl'in lid begins. All of which lias a direct bearing on this question of idealism realism. With all its faults, the League was the work of idealists. That is, it did represent an effort to substitute international law for the law of the jungle. It tried to free the world from the fear -..of- war by setting up a regime of collective security. What is replacing it is, very clearly, nothing less than a return to the r.n- cient balancc-of-powei- system. Kurope once more divides into ' armed camps, whose inmates arm to the teeth and remain at peace only so long as neither side can see any percentage in starting a light. That is a system which makes peace expensive and war inevitable. It could be followed, one would think, only by people who had completely blinded themselves to the painful lesson ut 1,91'J. Yet it is precisely (his system which fe being revived by the clear-eyed realists. Prime Minister Chamberlain of England has openly said that he is following. H policy of realism. His French allies have .said the same. On the opposite side of the fence. Dictators Ilit- ier and .Mussolini have long boasted of the utter absence from their scheme of things of any taint of idealism. Yet this vaunted realism can the world nothing better than a return to the road to war! The idealist may stumble and fall often enough, with his eyes on the stars. Hut can he ever get the world into a mess than this which the realists are cooking up? intro.

CHAi'TEK XI JJOGER did not gel (o take oft for Ihe west, coast, quite as soon as lie had anticipated. lie wan obliged (o "hang-around," as lie expressed il, until the weather was more favorable. "I don't want anything (o happen on the way out,—before I eet to make my flight.," he told Jackie, liis blue eyes earnest. "I've got to make good on this now. If anything happened and I Jell I'd let lieryl down, after having her pick ine for the job, I'd never be able to look her in (he eye again. She's n wonderful person, Jackie— you've no idea." H seemed lo Jackie llial she had been hearing how wonderful Beryl was often enough lately to arrive ;it some conception. "If aviation ever achieves ils ultimate goal, it will be because of people like her," Roger said. "People who are willing lo give nol only thousands of dollars, but their time and almost their very heart itself. People with foresight and vision. . . ." "You forget even such wonderful people have to have pilots (o Ily their ships," Jackie broke in. "You're the one who's Inking the chance, Roger. Sometimes I think people like Mrs.—and I know you think she's perfection personified -simply like to share in the reflected glory of someone else. 1 suppose if yon break all records on this (rial flight, she'll think she did it—and want all the medals." * * z J>OGER slopped chewing the end ot his toothpick; he glanced across at Jackie; they were having hamburgers and toffee at the Airport Inn, waiting for Beryl JVIel- ixise to join them. This might ue their last meeting for some time ;is, if ilic weather "broke," everything was in readiness for the take-off. "Why don't you like Beryl?" Tioger asked. "She thinks you're swell, .Jackie. She told me so— just Hie oilier day." His eyes crinkled at their corners. "Not still jealous, are you? Now that we're really engaged." Jackie had absolutely sold him on her idea. Since the Jiighl of the announce- nenl party—and that kiss behind the banked (lowers —Roger believed Jackie intended to marry him on his return. "Certainly I'm not jealous!" Jackie llnred. Just the same she did not like the other fiirl any better than she had from the first. "Except that I think I'm the one who should bo going with you to the coast. But of course I'm only your fiancee, nol a beautiful widow with millions of dollars to buy my way anywhere. It seems to me, Hofer, she should be satisfied to stay hero and wait, the -same us I must do." "After 1 all, it's her ship," Roger reminded. "It's only natural she should want to go along. If it weren't for my arguments against il, Beryl would make Ihe trial ight with me. She's thai interested—and plucky." "I suppose you told her it was much too dangerous for her!" Jackie said, with some bitterness. "It's loo risky for any woman," Roger said. "But that wasn't my main argument. I want as light a load as possible to make the fastest possible speed. And—this may sound selfish—but somehow I want lo feel I've done this all alone." • * * JACKIE could understand that; it was the way she vrould want it, too. "Sec here,""Roger changed the subject abruptly; he leaned toward her, his blue eyes earnest again. "There's something I want lo give you, Jackie, before 1 go—that is, if you'll v;car it." He looked as though lie did not know quite how to say what lie wanted lo say; as though ho still felt uncertain as to how Jackie would react to it. She said, "What do you want me to wear?" carelessly, not prepared for what would come next. "You mean you will?" "Why nol?" He looked at her another moment searchingly, direct. Then he unfastened the small aviation pin, symbol of his achievements, that he always wore clasped to his lapel. "I want you to wear it," he said, offering it to Jackie. "Until I come back . ..-. and if anything should happen. . . . Well, I haven't anything else much lo leave you, my love." For once Jackie did nol ask him not to call her that. Itc had said it in such a different way, nol on thai light note of mockery. ) luut said it as Ihc ugh he h meant it. But that had not be wlial made Jackie draw ba< "No, no," she said. "1 can't la : il, Hoeer." This was going a I too far wilh her joke. Someh< il might make the last laugh b ter-swccl. "WJiy not?" "You lohl me you'd never without it—that it brings y'| luck." "It will bring me more, if . wear it for me this lime." "I'd rather not." "Please do!" His tone was i gent, as though-more than sj knew depended upon it. "I ca: give you a ring, or anything el: j Jackie. Nol until I get back, want you to wear it. I'm aski you to." "IN that reachcc case ..." Jack icd out for it, but st | reluctantly. 'Here ... lot me pin it on yoi He was on his feet, bending ov her, his fingers fumbling at 11 lapel of her coat—the lapel II- was over her heart.
