It WHS touched on ' briefly in a recent, address in Washington by Adhiiro) William 11. Stiind- ley, chiut' of niivltl operations. "If through the existence of ihc navy," remarked the admiral, "we are spared the ofdonl of \v:ti', and lor gen- cralioiis the navy novel lives a gun in miner or is engaged in buttle—1 say lo you that no matter what it costs us, it is cheap at the price. Any amount of lire insurance premium is cheaper than a fire." 1 The \vciither is a bit .sultry these days for any serious aigimienls o\er military policy. But the navy is a deep-water institution, and it yoes where there are coul and .sully brec/.cs, so perhaps fhe current heal wave makes it a timely subject. And it must be said that oven if one does not go all the way with Admiral Standley in his conception of a navy as a, war-preventive, there still is a great deal in what he says.' A navy's chief value is tts a tluval rather than as an actual weapon. Jt' the other fellow knows you have one, and knows that it can take cave of "any fuss (hat nniy develop in iYs .own wafers, lie isJiol «iit to come «round and pick u' (juuiTcl. And because of the inescapable geographical fact thai any nation which plans to invade, oppress, or otherwise bedevil the United Slates Inisi to come by Water, the American navy' docs in fJlet represent the kind of /ire insurance that Admiral Standley mentions. For our navy does not merely in- sfire us ngalnsL invasion; it makes it as certain as anything can be certain in-this chuircy world limt no invasion of our shoios will even be attempted, 'lhat is why those gray ships of ours, so expensive, so cleverly deviled 'for grim combat, serve I heir purpose best of all when there is no enemy oil the horizon. , Now it is perfectly popsible, of course, for Us lo misuse the power that they represent. We could gel ourselves into a war in Asia or in Europe, send bur fleet fhr afield, and use il for p'.n 1 poses noli strictly connected With defense of olir own shores. But wo needn't, if we play bur cards carefully.: We novei' will, if we oilco learn the lessoh thill our liiivy 1 Is built for peace rather than for wiir. The longer olil 1 iwvy exists in llio pipiiig tiihes of pence, the belief is it proving that it is worth \vhnl it casls. SATURDAY) JULY 18,- 195(3 Assemblies of 'Good Fclbivs' The case of Johii K.

Of course, yon are. all good fellows, but when the people's good is placed in; your hands it IH placed 'in mighty poor hands" Here, it seems, is the key lo many of our legislative ills today—the good fellows of the state house; good fellows who, unwillingly or olhei'wise, fall for the Wiles of lobbyisls Mild thereby Cease to function in the full intcrt'sl of their constituents, In the face of these cumillioiis, il is little woikicf tliiit n Icgislalor wotikl resign.

" TT was Sainlra'Leigli licrsclf who went for the minister, using the broken down roustabout car oWned .by. the carclaker of the lodge. She was to return with him well before noon, and iii Hie meantime Crest Mountain Lodge Wiis it beehive of activity. Sandra's friends delightedly decorated the big main room of Ihc lodge wilh fir boughs, and strips of colored paper which the lodgckeep- cr's wife resurrected. More excited than any were Peler Henderson mid Helena. For Ihc most part they kept close to their rcspcclivc rooms, trembling against the lime ;when Sandra would rclurn wilh the minister. Severn! times Helena, stricken by sudden panic, debated whether to escape le the station. Suppose it was all a horrible mistake? There were a hundred things that could happen. ' She might discover that Peter was Improvident and given to drink; for Helena had heard that these evils often went wilh : charni. And she might learn—too late—that Pcler was one ol Ihosc men who found alt women attractive, and was in turn admired by therii. There came back to Helena a casual remark of Sandra Leigh's: "No •.voman can resist lhat charm of his. ..." What had she meant by that? Perhaps it \vas a calculated 'statement, a remark designed lo warn a friend, to moke her think. As Ihe morning wore on, she began lo dress herself: for the wedding. Sandra had lold her lhat she might wear simple sport clothes for Ihc ceremony, and Helena had been mildly amused, at Ihe suggestion. In her'week^ end hag she had packed only three outfits: one for swimming, one for hiking through Ihc woods, and a sports outfit adaptable lo w'liatcvcr informal affair might Bui she had never dreamed that any "informal affair" might turn out lo be her own wcddiiig! Just as she completed dressing she heard Sandra's familiar voice on Ihe veranda. "I couldn't find n minister—but 1 found a justice of the peace, and he insists he can marry people legally!" * * • - lj "J^ MOMKNT lalcr came Sandra's excited rap on Helena's door. M llio Jailor's invitation she burst inside the room. "You've no idea what a perfectly ghastly time I had finding someone who could really marry you and Peter!" Helena laughed shakily. "i\Iay- ue that's a bad omen." "Nonsense! I didn't mean that, you gooso. But (Ms j s n W i| ( i country up here. Tlsjy don't expect marriages, yon know. Though 1 did find a justice of Ihe peace. He can'l see very well, and he has whiskers, bul I'm sure you'll adore him. He Was ft lillle suspicious at fifst. Said he wouldn't have • • • [• evening train, if you ddii'l mlndJ know you won't expect ils to] lay'over Sunday. I mean. . . ,"| Ic stopped, as embarrassed as a boy. "Well, after all, there's .been i marriage, Sandy." . - i "Of course there has," the Leigh' Jirl laughed. "We all expcclcd you'd leave on the nigjit train.; "ood heavens, Peter, you -didn't hink we all expected to stay wilh you the remainder of your iriar- -ied life, did you?" Helena had a sudden, .frighlen- ng thought. "I'd forgotten': to telephone Miss Lanclcs at Hclvig's VIonday morning!' 1 She .„. .oward the group around th6 ble where the cocklails had bcti set oul. "A toast to the bride And then everybody into thei swim suits." i Alrnotl before t!ic\j rcoKicrf f/i< lic.dKcd from ils topmost branch, anything to do with wliat he called a. 'gin wedding.' But finally I managed to assure him that nobody had taken a drink at Crest Mountain Lodge for at least 10 hours." ' "Maybe you shouldn't have done that," Helena faltered. "I feel as if I might do well with a cocktail." Sandra put her arm about Helena's shoulder. "Buck up, baby. Girls get married every minute—and live. It's the bridegroom who really needs a drink. He lake's all the responsibility." Sandra grinned mischievously. "And I'd be willing to bet that Peter liar, had one or two." When Helena accompanied Sandra out inlo the giant living room with ils roaring (ire she discovered that the Leigh girl was right Pelcr had taken a drink or two although he did not show il' Helena would never have realized it had she not delected the sweetish odor of liquor. Slie didn't blame him. The fact was that she rather envied Ihe fals • assurance the alcohol had given 1'ctcr. How did a man feel when he was about to agree, before God and the world, to lake unto bim.-clf a woman and support her for the rest of. their natural live,;? She would never, ns lorn; ns she liven,'forget, the next tew moments in that la!l-ceilmg«l mom wilh Us hewn .fir beams. Always she \vould remember the smilin; faces of Sandra's fiic-ndr—Hytii Sutler and her husband, i"ain . . . Jack Gose and Violet Nevilt Pcler had climbed the tree. . . Bernard Heller and Lora Fanchon . . . Blair Lowell who had conic wilh Sandra—and the pleased expressions of the caretaker and his wife. * ' * « T seemed odd that a ceremony ' which was .to bind two people for life should.conSnmc so litlle lime. When it was over she stood as if stunned, and then suddenly Pcler look her in his arms and kissed her full ujwn the lips. She heard the delighted squeals—they were really .that, she remembered afterward—of the wedding parly. Fain Sutler, and Jnck Gose and Ihe rest insisted upon kissing the bride, despite the protests . of Peter; and at length she found herself in a corner of the big room,' trembling and scared—yet somehow happy. She was grateful when Peter came to her again. "There'll be lime lo think this out," he whispered. "The thing for you to remember, until we can be alone is liiat I love you. Will you remember that?" "Always," Helena said. "And you'll remember lhal—lhat il goc: double?" She saw Sandra coming lowati. them. "Well." the Leigh girl exclaimed, "it's all over now. And just to celebrate, wa'rc all goini fur a irWtni—after the cnrelakcr has brought us cocklails lo drink lo the bride." Peter turned to her. "You've been grand, Sandy. Helena and will never be abl* to thank you enough. But we'll slip out on th that I won't be at work Monday." "Skip it," Sandra told her. 'I've wired her; and she'll get'jit TT was over an hour before Ihei really got inlo their swimminj logs and were headed toward the •shore of the lake. And meanwhile .here had'been more than a toast :o fhe bride. A toast to the bride liad called for a toast to Ihc bridegroom—and this had been folJ lowed by a toast to Helena for her bravery. After that, there were cocktails consumed without any particular reason; and Helena nervously saw that -Peter look! even more than the rest. i Despite his drinking he re^ mained sensible and courteous; ind she thought in sudden panic: Hes used to drinking a lot. The lasl cocktail fmishc'd, Sandra gave them all 10 miiiules in which lo get into their suits. Nervous and trembling,' Helena .ook longer—and when she . ap- icared on the lodge veranda she discovered that Ihc rest were al- •cady down on the shore.. "Hurry,' 1 Sandra called lo her. f 'We've begun a diving contest. I'm putting up a secret prize.", Peter's blond head poked up from the lake. "Hello, Mrs. Henderson!" he called. With- ti Ihe (op rung of the diving plat-^1 form." : j 'Don't be a fool," Jack Gose lold him seriously. "It's at least I 10 feel higher." Pcler answered him with glance slightly alcoholic in" -'its bravery. "Af^r all," he said, "it's my'wedding day—arid if 1 ffccl like (living from a Irec lop I'm going to do il!" • No one considered, then, just what was happening—not-.even Helena. More with pride than wilh fear, she watched Peter climb recklessly, swiftly, to the topmost branch of the. tall fir which slood by Ihe shore of the lake. Almost before she had realized it, he had dived. She saw his body hurtling, saw it strike Ihc wafer and disappear'behcalli I the surface. n There was cheering laughter I from the crowd. - Then silence Silence during which the surface j of Ihe lake smoothed itself. Slid- ! dclily Helena knew that something j had happened to Pelcr.
