The 'Oppressed? Minority hi Czechoslovakia Most, of us are pi-elly cynical nowadays about, that great, .slogan of tin.' World War—"Make (lie world sain for democracy." By and large, (.hero is substantially less democracy in Knrope now than there was in 19M, and Uic democracy that remains.seems in a fair way to diminish. If those four horrible years were indeed .devoted to saving- democracy, one can only say that they were tragically wasted. Yet there is one spot in Kin-ope which has democracy now and which did not have it in HIM— democracy i.s, in fact, a direct result of the war and does justify the wartime slogan. That s)ipt is Czechoslovakia. And now that flic pressure is heing put on, no American can fail to have a keen interest in C/.echoslovakia's democracy and its gallant light to survive. Indeed, America is l>y way of hcing 'that nation's godfather. Masaryk, I he man* who founded the C/eqh republic and became its lirsl presidenl, did ttic : -bulk of his work in America. The country's constitution was written in America, its imlcpcmlcifce was proclaimed in Washington, and the active sympathy of our government was one of the chief reasons why lhat independence was made good. And Czechoslovakia, incidentally, is one of Ihc few spots in Europe where the name of Woodrow Wilson is still remembered gratefully. All of which simply means thai in that one place the high ideals which brought America'into the war have actually justified themselves. The cause of human freedom—which, in Uic long . run, means human happiness—was actually advanced by Die allied victory (here. Czechoslovakia's independent existence is to be cherished as one of the few indisputably valuable fruits of the-World War. Now that independence i.s menaced by "Nazi Germany; and it might be as well for Americans to understand just how hypo-critical is the Nazi concern over the "oppressed" German minority in Czechoslovakia. First of all, that minority is probably the least oppressed minority in all of Europe. It enjoys free speech, a free press, freedom to come and go as its members please; it is hard to see how (he Czech government could give it a fairer break and .still retain its own existence. Secondly, there exists nearby a German minority which undeniably is oppressed—the Germans of the Italian Tyrol, If Nav.i concern for abused compatriots living under foreign tyranny were sincere,' il would be Ifaly and not Czechoslovakia which would be the target of German pressure right now. What is going on is simply a barefaced attempt at. conmiexl, with even less lo justify it than there was in the case of the Ilalian seiy.ure of Ktliiopia. Considering all the fads, it is hard lo see Mow any American's sympathies can fail to liu UK) per cent with the C/cchs in this crisis. An I'Jxira Dosti of Dash.

Scratch a clerk, a bank president, a saleslady, and yon liud a Burrymore —John or 1'Uhcl. The impulse lo stalk and gesture from lime lo time lies crouching timidly in almost everybody, and nobody has thought of a good reason yet why it should spend its life crouching. Leon Connull, dramatic instructor at the California university, knows a good reason why that crouching impulse ought to .stand up and be a man. Skillful employment of the dramatic in- .slincl, he linds, makes for success in all the enterprises of daily life. In the ordinary walks of life the American scene needs more grandiose entrances and sweeping- gestures, anyway. And—Anyway No. 2—Ibere'.s this to Iliink of.

The Life Expectancy (.)!' Ihe Diabolic CHAPTER XXIV r pl!E telegram thai Jackie had received was from Beryl. It r.lalcd that she was returning ;it once nnd thai she was bringing with her a famous surgeon in whom she had the greatest confidence. "I told her it wan no use," Roger said. "Dr. Watson ought to know his slulT—what can any other doctor do? But you know how Beryl is—she seems to take the blame /or all (his un herself —she simply won't give up." "She's a wonderful person," Jnckie said. Poor Beryl ... of course she was taking il on herself. Hadn't she (old .lackic thai if anything serious happened lo Jlogcr she never would forgive herself? But as for giving up, well Jackie would not. do that cither. She would never surrender the hope that lioger would be made well, that, lie would walk again. Maybe her faith, her prayers, would help in this as they had before. The surgeon and Beryl arrived that ncxl morning. Beryl herself had piloted the ship back. She had felt -that there was no time lo lose. Jackie never knew to what lengths she had gone to persuade this great doctor io accompany her, what amount, of money she must have paid to secure his service. She did know that Beryl woidti have spent her entire fortune, gladly, if that could have made Rogcv well. "Do you really think there is any chance?" Jackie asked Bery during the long hours of waiting lhat the two spent together. Perhaps it would have been easier, for Roger at least, nol lo have been given this new spark of hope if it would blaze but a brief moment only to sputter and burn into dead ashes of. despair again. * * * JJERYL did not answer at once; perhaps she was thinking the same (liing. For if Ihc verdict this lime was Ural Hogcr never would he able lo walk, then hope would indeed be dead. ''There is—jnsl a chance," she said. "It lies in the fact that I?ogcr was able to cnuvl all that distance after (he plane crushed. You see he couldn't have clone that if his hack bad been injured as Doctor Watson believed it was. It wa:i when I told this to Doctor VendclU that lie consented lo lake Roger's case. Hut lie would nol iold out much hope, oven then." "Well, we will!" Jackie returned stubbornly. It was simply impossible to accept Ihe fact Hint Roger would never walk again. It was miracle now tlial lie was nlive, a miracle brought aboul by cour- e and failli and love. If one miracle could be achieved by such power as was contained in these Ihree tilings, why not another? Miracles do .happen, .some-limps more than once. And who knows lnil what il is love and faith and courage, (hough they be intangible Ih/nfis, lhat bring them about? Jackie could not have answered these questions; perhaps no one could. But Doctor Vcndclli, great surgeon that he was, decided, after IIP had made his examination, that an operation might. >rini: this miracle about. And Doctor Vendelli added lhat he would have to rely in part on tho?c same inlangible powers. "There is a chance," Ihc great surgeon told Jackie and licryl, ''that this operation will (lx this Joy's back. But we must all have great: failli, great courage, if we arc lo help make him well." "You mean," Beryl asked, her dark eyes returning the great doctor's keen, piercing look, "lhal there is' also the chance that Roger may nol be able to pull through -it you operate?" The great man inclined bis head. "Is this the only way?" Jackie protested. "Unless" you operate, Roger can never walk again?" "F.ven then it is only n chance," the doctor said sternly. "Since (hcve is no one else lo make this decision I must leave it up to you." * * * IJERYL turned lo Jackie. "You are the one," she said. "If Doctor Vcndetli doesn't operate, Roger will live—but he'll never walk. If Ihc operation is successful Roger may not only walk, but maybe lie will even ily again!" Jackie did indeed have to summon ail her courage, ail her faith now. If her love had not been bigger than these, bigger than any thing else in the world, she could nol have answered as she did. "I would like you to perform the operation, J)octor Vendclli," she paid. "1 know thai that is what Roger would wanl mo rto say . for him." Doctor Vciidetti inelihc'd his .'lead again, before he lurncfl on his heel and strode briskly out of Iho hospital wailing room. Bui his keen eyes had paid Jackie tribute for her brave decision. The operation was performed jj that same day. There was no '' point in postponement; Jackie -i wondered how the sun could go on shining .so gayly in the town's little square, how life could go on,, as usual, while Roger lay uncon- . .scions, still, on an operating table;. in the litlle hospital at the mercyj;,- of a surgeon's knife, in the unseenp; hands of a greater power. dj If linger died, if lie never ca r.TAD she been right in believing lhat Tinner would nol iv.'int to live unless he could walk again'? Roger who bad lived among flic clouds, who hail piloted a rilvci ship high up above this world in the slralosphere. But Roger did not die. Doctor Vendelli and those intangible powers performed ibat second miracle. The operation was successful. Roger nol only would live, but some day would w ilk again. "It will lake time now," he great surgeon told Jackie gravely as he bid her goodby, for Beivl was to fly him back East again. "You must still sland by, my dear, and help this boy fight through It will be a long, slow, lediou i| bailie, but (he victory will be so triumphant lhat it will be woilb while in the end. Weeks yet bed, months in a wiieel civ crutches at first after lhat. IVuf, your young man will learn to wnlki again. And yes," the keen eye:-' smiled into Jackie's, "one day h(C,r may even fly ;igaiu, loo!" '*• This was the news Dial Jai could give Roger when he regained consciousness again. She would he by his side when he called her name, she would standby, help him fight through, teach him to walk again. Thai was a big enough job for .' I any woman, enough to fill one's/ life. Jackie did not want (o do anything- more important thmi.'j (hat. Gladly, gratefully she would, dcdicalc her life to Ibis. •,' "Your young man is calling for ^ you now," a nurse bcckone-.l la Jackie. "Will you follow me, please." ' J Y'es, Jackie would follow;—follow her love for all eternity, with' 1 ;! a heart that beat'not-only willV'-l courage anrl f.'iilb, but wilh such, 1 love as can indeed conquer the... slratosphere. i- THE END. .
