We, drvn't Cynical Enough For European Came The United States',5s still the homo of a relatively simple, trusting people, inclined to believe that black is black and while is white, and that when ;i man or a resjwnsibte government"says "1 will," they-will. The European war is giving its a iliiick education in international 1'oli- tics. Too quick, in fact, perhaps HO quick that we cannot absorb it, Tlio cynicism of the Russian regime in grabbing its chunk of prostrate t'o- -. land before Germany gets it all, surpasses -anything aver seen in the days of "imperialistic gieed.'" The fact Unit Comissar Mololov explains the Soviets' • "sacred duty" to protect its oppressed minorities in Ukrainian and Byclo-l'o- • land is cut from the same pieco o( cloth as Hitler's previous move to 'relieve "oppressed" German minorities in Czechoslovakia. The phony "enthusiasm" with'which the I'liberali'd" peoples in both countries Creeled the invaders is the same in both cases; so is the excuse in each ease that responsible government (having first been carefully, undermined) did not exist. The brutal facts are that Hitler decided to' have what he wanted from Poland even if it cost a war. Russia, after silting on the sidelines until Poland was safely defeated, pounced on the body like a buzzard" to have her share. She did so, not only because it was a cheap way to add, to Soviet ierritory, but be'cause she did not;trust? ( Hitler to make a fair "divvy" of the spoils, "and, because she distrusts see ing Germany grow loo powerful on her very borders. By moving those borders westward, .she enlarged her own ,defense zone. This after years of loud •assertion tliat she would instantly spring to the aid of any victim of aggression. This is all to be expected in a jackal civilization. But we must remember that a country that was capable of thus dividing up with Germany a helpless Poland is also quite capable of dividing up with Japan a beaten China. Kussia already has nil of Inner Mongolia. By taking the rest of western China it, can hem in all of northern British [iidia, ready to move in should social revolution .strike this socially restless country.

The Philippines, to be freed in 1946, would be just about ripe for her. II is not loo soon to begin asking, "Well, what part do we want to take in that game?" The United States, prone to be sentimental, and to think or' international affairs in terms of personal relations between one honorable man and another, must 1 learn to think of them in terms of naked national"" self-interest as interpreted by ruling cliques.- That is the way the world is being run, and dial is the world \ re have to face. Face it we must, but always with a thought for the belter world that must emerge some day if there is to be anything left of life at all. If all the rest of the p)ai|et forgets that world- lo-be, we must not forget it: the dream that some day there must be a world in which decent men and women can live in freedom and in peace. IP (II- I hi Germany, a "fanatical member" of a sect of Bible students (perhaps the Judge Rutherford organisation) is shot as a conscientious objector to'the war. Another resident of Halle (once n Red stronghold) is .shot for "arson and sabotage." In Paris, a Hungarian chambermaid and an Algerian cook are jailed for speaking sympathetically of Hitler. . Let us not be critical or Pharisaical. No nation engaged in a life and death struggle would do less. This, too, is war. H suggests no reflection on cither Germans or French, if we remember rightly, some of the Tories were roughly handled ''during the American Revolution, and some of the Copperheads during the Civil War. Jl is usual to say that in war, truth is the first casually. If so, freedom is a close second. This must be so, war being war, and let's not forget it. The advance in price of American commodities since the war has boon marked, leading some people to talk about ".war prices." , ' Hut the remarkable thing about tbe : price, say, of wheat, is not that it has risen 20 cents n bushel and more, but that it is still far below not only the war levels of 1018, but even below the 1910-19M normal. That' was figured at $1.1G. Wheat closed recently in Kansas City at 82 cent's, whereas it was pegged by the Food Administration during the World War at §2, and after those restrictions were removed, jumped to §2.76 in 19j 9, Up to now, the war in Ktiropu lias not meant "profiteering" for the farmer, whose price is still welt below the "parity" sought by the Agricultural Administration, and only a third of real World War prices. If there is going to be any "war bonanza" for America farmers, it isn't in sight yet.

What was Ihe use? She might as well accuslom herself to loneliness. When Marian hinled lhat Dun had invited a most attractive man, she became more interested. 'You may like him," Marian said. "Anyway, he's unattached." "Uh-huli—I know. Divorced, paying huge alimony, sour on women." "Not at all. lie's a bachelor. Kich and good-looking." "Maybe we're doing a good turn," Marian said. "Maybe Rjindy Means will take a fancy lo Corma." She told Dolly about' Carma ( and Pele, ending with, "She's just about crazy, Dolly." "The poor girl," Dolly sympathized. "We'll put them side by side at the table— or would it be better to put him across from her so he can see how pretty she is?" * * * *• '"THE next 'morning Marian went to the office with the coin- forlable feeling that her apartment would be cleaned, that the ordering and arrangements for the parly were being capably (alien care of by Dolly.

They called Dolly from across the hall and she entered into the plan with enthusiasm. Dinner for six—well, seven—ol course she and Marian could manage it. "I'll do Ihc jumping up and down," she ottered. "What shall we serve?" Marian knitted her brows in thought. It was actually £im to be giving a party. Why hadn't she (lone it oftener?

Her nerves had cased, she felt physically much betler. Arriving homo al 4 o'clock she found the table set' in thc living room. Shining silver, pale green linen, a bowl of violels in the center. Everything was neatly ready in the kitchen, peeled pola- locs in cold waler, a white head of cauliflower ready to be steamed, carrot slivers which were to surround the cauliflower. Marian dressed carefully, a simple black dinner gown, fong and clinging with, exquisite collar and cufl's on the long-sleeved, tailored blouse. She had bought (he dress . for Ihc occasion. Its purchase had pushed the Manning bill lo a new and alarming high. I,, u, Marian was her smooth and brittle best. Dolly, flushed and radiant, rushed back and forth between the kitchen and the living room. She had a slighlly tousled look. Her shell pink dress matched the color in her cheeks. In spile of being fully three years old, the dress was vastly becoming. When she ran lo her own apartment for a favorite knife, Marian caught Ihc lapel of Dan's coal as he would have passed her. "Do i look nice, Dan?" He palled her cheek. "Beautiful, Marian." "You didn'l used to call me Marian," wistfully. Again he touched her rouged cheek. "I know," he said.
