BLYTJIEVILLE. (ARK.) COURIER NEWS What Is the World to Ik Like, /ijtvr ike War? Is it silly to begin to wonder, now, what the world is to Ijo like iifior the European War? The fighting lias scarcely commenced, and, except in Poland, there really hasn't been any on a " large scale. And yet, even at this stage of the game, it may be wise In begin fixing our eyes on the world that is lo bo afterward. This war, like all wars, must end some time. The world will go on. What will have been accomplished? II depends, of course, on who wins, if anybody can be said to win a modern war. It is more lliati possible that ' nobody will win in the sense of the elimination of whole races and peoples. All Uie root-problems of Europe will remainto be solved. Up to now, neither side has published official summaries of "war aims" in the sense of a program it hopes lo accomplish after the war. The British . White Paper and it.s German counterpart arc simply tho usual efforts lo say, in involved diplomatic language, "He started it!" and "No. he did!" The il's and might-have-beens ace all past now. 1't has started, and the world is where it is. The British-French position is simply that a world is intolerable in which there is no international law and only naked force and the threat of it govern the relations between iiafionV The Germans' 'position is that they, were unjustly oppressed after the ^rlcl War, denied their natural position-in the world, and lhat they are going lo achieve it by whatever force is necessary. Behind these high-sounding statements lies the simple, fact that the Germans and the French-British alliance are rivals for Hie control of Europe, and that neither will be satisfied until the other is eliiiv nutted. Does either side extend even a valid promise that after peace comes it will help to construct a peaceful Kurope run on a sane system, in which justice will be available to every country without fighting for it? Not that we have seen thus far. K is probably too early for that. yel it is a thing not to be forgotten The men who settle this war must do better than Versailles. There is something to the German conlenlion that after Versailles they could get no justice from the League of Nations' because of British-French domination. IS either is there anything in German pohcy during the past ]0 yc;i r.s which promises Europe and the world any- OUT OUR WAY thing belter thun a coi.liuuu! inlcriia- liona! dog-iight. It is certainly clear that Europe must be reorganized after this war. Is it lo be done Ijy a victorious Germany lo .suit itself? Or by a victorious British-French coalition to suit themselves? An example of the second alternative lias been seen since 191'J, antl it hasn't worked very well. An example of the first could .scarcely fail lo be oven worse. ft' the people of Kurope, let alone peoples ncros-s the .seas, arc lo lju expected to support a loiitf war, they must ho offered something boiler — sonielhinK very much better. So far no .such hope has been offered by cither side.

Packing then into a tissue-lined box, slie wondered why she was doing it. Shi never kept things from one seasoi to the next; the styles changed ant there was always something wrons, with them. Her theory was to buy KOOI! things, just a few, wear them hard and discard them. There was ;i rumor that Marian was the best-dressed woman in the Loop and she wanted to make the rumor a fact. Nevertheless, she packed the chesses in a Manniin; box. Perhaps she would wear them next year, perhaps she'd economize u bit. Who cared if she were the host-dressed woman in the Loop? Certainly not Dan. She was a little hurl about Dan. Al 5 o'clock he had not returned and she went to help Dolly dress for her date with Handy' Means Dolly was calmly pressing the pink dress. "What time is he coming?" Marian asked. "Six-lhirly." "But y<fti haven't started to get ready." Marian would have allowed hours for preparation. "I'll have plenty of time." She Si2£lcd youthfully. "This is fun Marian. It takes mo back—away hack." "1 should thinlc you'd be thrilled to death." Marian tried not lo be envious. "An attractive man, dinner, dancing, a drive through Ihe mysterious dark." "You make it sound terribly dramatic. I'm really too surprised to be thrilled. Why should lie want lo see me again?" Marian wondered why. She said, '•You're a pretty nice person to know, Dolly." "Maybe. But I'm at my' best doing things for people. If Randy had a few socks to be darned, or • » dress tie to lie lied—" She sighed al her own lacks. "I don't Ecinlillale very well." "He's probably a little tired ol that sort of thing." Dolly put her dress on a hanger I don't feel quite right about Carma. He was supposed to like her. She needs him and I don't." Let Carrmi look after, herself." jrfarian thought, "That's where 'A-.!ly | ms him. He felt her indifference and that's what attracled lum. When she falls he'll mov. on to someone else." * » » jY^AfilArT waited while Dollj bathed, and dressed. The aparlmcnt was so smalt that the; were able lo keep up a constan flow of conversation. The dooi stood half open and, ' at every sound, Marian listened for Dan Her hurl was beginning to turn to anger. Dan had no right to treat her like that. The least he could do was to give her a litllc of his companionship on Sunday She helped Dolly with the last touches, delicate pink fingernail polish, a triple siring ol Marian's pearls around her while Ihroat. Dolly wore a pink felt hat. It was wide, tho sweep ot the brim most becoming. Her sandals were soft gray kid, her coat gray, broad- shouldered and short. Marian who always affected dark blue or Hack, gazed at her in wonder. Jolly might not be as smart or ailored, hut (here was certainly i lusciousness about her, and an appealing sweetness. Marian, still in (he robe and flippers, wandered back to her own apartment when it was lime 'or Handy to arrive. She heard lira come, heard them laugh eom- anionably as they went down the tails, and a depressing loneliness loscd in on her. * » * \N arrived at B o'clock, his skin ruddy from tiie wind and un. Marian did not look up from icr magazine when he came in. "Hello," he said, thumping his olf bag inlo the hall closet. "Gee, 've had a swell day." He seemed o bring part of the crisp outdoors vim him. "That's nice. I've been bored to oath." "Too bad." He bent over and ie turned a cool cheek for his iss. "Thought you'd be glad to ? lid of your pest." Curiosity made her ask, "Where ave you been all day?" "Played golf from 0 until I. lad dinner at the club with Amy lien and tiie kids. There's a swell unch of kids, I'm telling you—" Marian's brows arched. "Amy lien came out for dinner?" "Oh, no—she played with us. bat hlllesl kid—" Dan broke into i) amused laugh. "But Amy Ellen was up most o£ the night." "She and Bill play golf every uiindny morning." "The oldest boy caddied for us. Hes a grand youngster—grand. A maid brought the cither three out in time for .dinner.' 1 , Marian didn't mean to say "It would have been nice if they'had asked me for dinner," but she heard herself saying it. 'Amy Ellen did speak of it." 'Well?" 'Great guns, Marian"—his good- natured grin vanished in a frown —"you haven't wanted to go anywhere on Sunday lor years." "Maybe I've never been asked io go to the right places," Her 'oice dropped rapidly to the freezing point. "I'm sorry, but look—you ;il- ways sleep until noon—it takes you two hours to dress—(lie club is 15 miles out." "I see—too much trouble." * * * TJE Hung away from her. Hands in his pockets, he stared from the window. "After dinner what did you do?" Marian's tone was a smoothly sarcastic tone. "Take the kids homer ind sit beside them white they napped?" Marian did not want to quarrel, she wanted lo put .tier •n-ms around Dan and beg him lever to leave her again. The mger seemed to be only on the surface of her mind. Underneath ay chilly fear. Dan swung aboui, glaring at her. It's none of your"—his jaw light- -ned as- he bit down on the words. 'We fooled around the club, Ihcn took the two older kids to ;i movie—a Western." "Big hero stuff—riding and hooting." Her anger might be inly on the surface of her mind, >ut it was while hot. "That's ihout your speed, Dan." She was lalf stunned by her own insolence,' lowerless to stop. The scathing rards said themselves. Dan scowled and answered _ His self-control further mraged Marian. She would make him ctuarrol. She would lash and prick and scorn until he could no longer remain silent. A battle meant release for her pcnl.-up emotions. Her quivering nerve ends demanded action, any kind of action. Had Dan forcibly taken her in his arms, she would have cried it out and been soothed. Both hands remained in his pockets. Frantically she goaded him. "You're so smug, Dan," she said willieringly, "so sure of yourself —it's written all over your face Dan Harkness can do no wronif —he's a spineless worm who never turns—" Catching her by the elbows, Dan stood her on her feel. He held her, facing him. His eyes blazed inlo hers. "I've wanted lo turn lor a long time," he said, his lips scarcely moving. "Now you have made it very easy for me." He let her go, caught up his haf, and left the apartment. (To. Be Conliniieil) mil the .owner absent why not leave lim a Hlllc-note tcllingf him who on are and il pzssiblc of(cr to pas- he damages?
