Responsibilities, Uiinsked and •Unwanted, /Ire Oars As nearly as can be told at this moment, this looks like ;i probable result of the European war, no matter what its result: World liiuincinl. power will pass—nay, is already passing—from London to New York. A financial world which has been nccustomc'd to look to Thread- needle Street is going to look to Wall Street and to Pennsylvania Avenue. This tendency has been marked'be- fore the war broke. There no longer seems any doubt of the result. Whether we like it or not, whether we want it or not, the United Stales is rapidly becoming'the financial center of the world. The relationship between the British pound and the American dollar is a weather-vane that shows how this wind blows. Britain did not even try to maintain (he pound sterling, but flumped it without support, even before lighting started. It dropped immediately from §'1.68 to as low as $3.73. During the -four years of the World War it never fell below §4.51. The whole financial relationship is different today from that of 1014. Then a sudden and unexpected war knocked the props out from tinder the American stock market. In 1039, a long-expected and well-discounlcd war saw an immediate advance in U. 8. stocks. In 191-1, the United States held about §1,900,000,000 in gold, perhaps 20 per cent of liic - world's" ^iipply:;- Today it holds more than §16,700,-' 000,000 in gold, above 60 per cent of the world's supply. The trade of South America is literally being dumped into our lap. Al- ready orders luwe begun to come here from Brazilian and Argentinean, Colombian and Vonczulcan linns supplied from Germany and Britain whose sources of supply have been cut oil' by the war. This is not a question of the United States launching a campaign of financial imperialism or dollar domination. It is a fact, and it is happening today whether we like it or not, whether we want it or not. When the war is over, the United States is going to uc in a position which will dominate the financial and economic rebuilding of a .shattered world. The position will be. such that it will have to exercise this leadership, not from any wish to dominate, but simply to protect its own interests. It will be the world's great crtditor OUT OUR WAY country, liic world's great source of material ami 1'acilities for rebuilding. We may well begin now to survey this prospect, and figure out what, wo arc going to do about it. Perhaps a beginning may be made now by linking Die 21 American republics into a more interdependent economic system, with the money of all countries stabilized in relation to the dollar. Then there will be » nucleus of .solidity about which a shattered world may rally after the Where. Tlwre's « tl'iti.— The old .saws and sayings do not die. They t'el nioth-oaten around the CI\Kes, and stab to the taste;' but they i?o on. The reason is that they're- true. "Where there's n will, there's a way," says one of the oldest ones. It mi^hl he a good thing to paste down on every . congressional during the neutrality debate. The President wants to keep'tis out of war, practically all the congressmen on both sides of the de- hate want the .same. Orgatiixed business, even the so-called "merchants of death," want to stay out. So do 80 per cent of the people of the country. Is it a wish or a will? Everything depends on that. If that will is strong enough, it win be done, somehow. If that will is not strong and indexible, no congressional neutrality plan or law can do it. Under any plan or law incidents will occur that will try American patience, threaten American interests, for a war is not conducted with the interests or even the rights of neutrals in mind. On that will, whether it .stands firm as at, present for peace, or swings under changing eir- eiiniHliinces toward war, hangs the future of America. Many rumors have been going the rounds about vast numbers of Spanish refugees in Mexico. The Mexican press lias been quite agitated about it, on grounds that these refugees would form a political, perhaps even a military unit in Mexico to influence Mexican politics. . Now comes an actual estimate. Vincent Shccan, ii correspondent extremely -sympathetic to the refugees, estimates their number in .some detail at 5618, and after investigation finds that for oven this .small number it- has been difficult to find places in the normal economic life of the southern republic. Whether Sheean's estimate is accurate, we do not know, but there is no reason, other than Sheean's known sympathies, to question it. So small a number of people can not exercise any great political influence. And the extreme difficulty in absorbing them shows otico again the desperation of the problem that Europe's. present war is daily augmenting. We have no tit-sire to limit free .speech Trie Supreme Court has .spoken nm i we wimt to comply in every way- with the decision of liic court.—Mayor "I iuh the Inw" Hague ot Jersey City. Nobody knows whether Hits country can Keep out of war, but we all hope will, all our hearts. —Mrs, Franklin D. Roosevelt. if SIDE GLANCES MONDAY, SKPTKMBEU 25, 1!WD by Calbraith • SERIAL STORY WORKING WIVES BY LOUISE HOLMES COPYRIGHT, )»3». MCA SERVICE, INC.

Why doesn't he come?" Aloud, she culled, "Dan—Dan!" Suddenly she threw the covers back and sprang from bed so quickly thai her head swam and slie pressed both hands to her temples, swaying. Sick? She wasn't sick—she couldn't be sick. The party had been a strain it had been almost morning before she slept. That was it-she needed rest—she'd rest all day—be fine tomorrow. « * i gHE washed her face in cold water, brushed her hair until it lay in n soft swirl of curls on her neck. Touching her pale cheeks with rouge, she smiled into the mirror. "You ought to wear your hair that way," she said, addressing her reflection. "It lakes 10 years fvoin your age." Stepping into the velvet robe, she -tipped it up the front. A flat little collar suited Ihc curling locks. Slipping her feet inlo mules she went to the living room. A flat, dead smell of cigsret smoke made her close her eyes. She put one hand quickly to her throat She needed coffee, needed il badly. Opening a window, she leaned out' drawing a lung breath.

" ' In her low mood, it irked Marian thai Kandy had been attracted to Doliy. She had hoped that he might be the answer to Carma's immediate problem. Randy and Dolly and Carma however, were among her minor worries. Dan had somehow escaped her, she could not reach him. U was as if his spirit had gone away, leaving his familiar person behind. Never putting it into actual words,, ihc had considered him as putty in her hands All of ; sudden the pully had gone bard and unmanageable. A sensation of helplessless aim luliliry added to her teeling of abject dc- •A dreadful lethargy • weighted tier limbs, a wish to sink and sink and never rise again caused weak A strange sorrow fell across her hearl. Lives could be likened to a year. You were born, you looked ahead to sunshine and flowers and warmth, unafraid. You danced through youth, the springtime of your life, you lived the summer carelessly. And then youlh was gone, summer was gone, you tried to turn back but there was no turning back. You tried to recapture summer, building "it up It was autumn and it lasted for a little while. But winter came cold and drab and gray, and you were old. Marian shook herself. Of all the sentimental fools— Starting for the door, sure of finding Dan in ollys apartment, she.stoppwl and picked up a slip of paper which had been torn from Ihc telephone pad. It was a hastily scribbled nole from Dan. "Have gone golfing v/ilh Bill. We arranged it last night. Forgot lo tell you. Bo home sometime," » t <. A BSENT-M1NDEDLY, Mar in ix tore the paper into shreds and dropped them in an ash tray, in 12 years of married life Dan bad never left !icr on a Sunday. In (lie first happy days, Sunday had been his only holiday, il had meant something special. Their own day, (hoy had called it. Marian had been glad that someone had lliougnt of Sundays, she had been glad that only six days intervened between them, six days when she- must be separated from Dim. Marian bad been glad about so many things in (hose days. Gradually Sundays had become intervals of rest, times when Marian could catch up with her sleep, when she could dawdle over small tasks connected wild her appearances. She had often said that it was a one woman's job lo keep another woman's clothes in shape. She had often sighed over the lappy slate of women whose ••l.-.thcs were taken care ot bv n maid. Or. the lazy Sundays Dan had always been there, reading, talking when she wished lo talk, suggesting a movie or a ride or a walk in the park. Suggesting, hut never insisting. Movies bored Marian, she hated to ride in the Sunday traffic, and especially in Dan's raltly car; a \vnlk seldom appealed to her. "Be back sometime." What had Dan meant by that? II was loo casual, too prophetic thai he bad got away from her. But wasn't be always casual and indifferent days? Suddenly the apartment was desolately empty, echoing wilh Dan's voice, his laugh. A sufu.caling Jonelincss drove her across the hall to Dolly's open door. She went in and dropped into a chair, groaning. Dolly said, "Good morning. What have we here—a faded flower or somelhing?" "I feel like the last few days of a misspent life, Dolly. Have you a cup of coffee to spare?" "No, but.I can moke some in about a minule and a half," Dolly smiled cheerfully. "Where's Dan?" "Golfing with Bill Sands. They made arrangements last night." "That's fine." Dolly's voice came from (he tiny kitchen, "It'll be good lor him to play around witli other men. Contacts, you know. They tell me that more business is transacted on the golf, links than in the offices." .Marian brightened. Dolly always said the right'..thing. It just might be a turning point for Dan —it just might. (To Be Continued) THE FAMILY DOCTOR Draining Spinal Fluid, Tupping Veins Relieves Brain Pressure in Apoplexy UV 1)11. MOKHIS Editor.
