COURIER NEWS It no\y seenib certain Uisil the Uer- 1113118 and Russians are simply going to take what each wants of Poland and leave, maybe, a skimp of Hie dismembered country us a "buffer" between them. Neither li;usls Die other, it seems, despite their "alliance of convenience," and a helpless bull'er stato 'into which the surviving Poles may be crowded would be a good answer lo this distrust. It is, of course, shocking to see i\ state thus dismembered. But it cannot be forgotten thai this would be Hie fourth time that Teuton ami Slav 1 have divided this territory between them. The spectacle, unlovely as it is, merely means that Europe has lapsed back into the ways of bloody con, quest which have spotted it's history for 2,000 years. The Democratic powers should lie slow to extend their formal declarations of war to Russia, even in view of the "invasion" of what is left of Poland'by the Ilcd army. After all there still remain many sound and logical reasons why Germany and ,Bii5sia may never be the bosom companions that their recent activities may , have led us to believe. of r in Jungle The jungle, they say, is a place of - the reign of tootl'i and claw, whero ho lives who makes the lirst spring and ' he survives whose teeth are sharpest. Beasts from such jungles have been carried to London for people to look at on Sunday afternoons. No doubt many t holidayers shuddered to sec the sleek ^animals bare their teeth and growl. But it has been decided to sltoot the. prisoner animals the moment war strikes the British Islands. Some have already been destroyed. Birds of prey , with sharper teeth and claws, ami which pounce with an even more lumib- •ing swiftness, will then be abroad. And they might break the crimes, and allow the jungle beasts to revenge themselves Upon the people who for so many Sundays gazed and pointed fit them. Those beasts may die in such a jim- i?le\is they never knew when (irst Ihev saw the light of day in Africa.

J Marian gave herself a jerk, both I literally and figuratively.-. Why I should she indulge in sentimental twaddle? Long since, she had ac- 1 rented things as they were.

Then Dan, on a laugh, "Here's an interesting thing, Dolly." "What? Read it lo me." His voice rose and fell. When ie had finished the article, they discussed it, laughing and wonder- ng. More silence.
