Man Can'l Avoid Ww by holdling •Himself The world, today i.s riding for a fall, and there suoins to bo precious little ch:incc of stopping it before it comes down in u heap. This is. the sober opinion of Dr. William E. Doiitl, United States ambassador to Germany, us expressed in recent remarks before a midwest luncheon cliib audience. "Everybody thinks everybody is !,'<>- injr lo light everybody," .said the ambassador. "Things are worse than at the end of the World War. MiisHes of people who don't want war are nil anxious to 'nave enough to eat in I he event of war and arc trying to get along without trading with" one an-' other." It is this, perhaps, which is the most discouraging- part about the whole business. For it means that people have come to accept as inevitable, or at least as highly probable, the thing which they dread above everything else. Wauling above all things to stay at peace, They are schooling themselves'for war—and by. Hint very act they are helping to make war more probable. For the alternative to war, which is the sharpest and most obvious form oi inlermilional discord, is international co-opeiiilion; and inleriijiliomil cooperation involves, a great deal mow than simply refraining from fighting. It involves, the steady interchange of goods, the building up of intcriiiV tioiiaJ prosperity, ||i e maintenance of a complicated social and economic web in which nations benefit themselves and their neighbors simultaneously. For a good many generations the world made steady progress along those lines. Nations exported the products they were best lilted to produce, and imported those which they could not produce' economically. Tho whole structure of modern civilization was erected on that basis. The World War cut across that intricate fabric like a gigantic knife, and the wnr's legacy of rear, suspicion, and hatred has made it impossible for us to reconstruct it. By making complete self-sufficiency the goal for every great nation, the world^ lias not merely headed in tin- direction of war and turned its back "on the old goal of co-operation and mutual help; it.has elected to carry on its economics in the most uneconomical BLYTHEVILLE. (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS OUT OUR WAY way possible, and has doomed itself to a progressively lower standard of living. And this, by increasing the pressure on the ordinary man, arotiKj.s his discontent, sharpens his grievances, and makes it just that much easier for (he .statesmen to sell him a new war when the proper time comes. It is a vicious circle, and no one who studies it can find much ground for optimism. Because everybody is afraid of war, everybody docs the very things which make war more likely. At a moment when modern science is making world .society an indivisible unit, mankind is doing its level best to deslroy that unity. —Hrucc Gallon. i'ew Am Good Drivers Ilarvnnl'.s Dr. Harry It.

Dr. DC Silva, lioad of the tralfic research biircmt ill Harvard University, lias devised a series of automobile drivers' tests which shako the .smugness out of Hie most cocky chmilfeurs.

" They should Ijo put lo practical use by the various communities to help rid the country O f its dangerous drivers. Endangered by a Minority Recent surveys of automobile fatalities have shown that the great majority-of serious accidents are caused by a small minority of drivers, many of them previous offenders. In other words, your average motorist is a pretty safe Let while, relatively, a handful of drivers contribute danger and death to the highways -I'llis might lo be a good cue for trailic regulation. If the careless and the until few can be restricted, motoring can be definitely safeguarded lor Ihe larger number. Better police work and a rigidly enforced program for keeping incompetent drivers olf the road would do much to solve our traffic problem. Soon or inle, all men must learn that the law of life is co-opcratlon, both for individual relations ami relations between nations. The only final alternative to co-operation Is men shall die by each other's hand. — Rev. Carlos O. Fuller, New York City. l always thoutjht i had run as fast as I could until...! got to Berlin.

Jaime joined her, and they went into the bar where everyone at the Majestic appeared to be at the moment. Her escort seemed to know them all.

After 10 or 12 ,ot these stares she felt sclf- conscious, but when she sat on a high stool at the bar, with a cool drink before her she regained her poise. x "Have another," Jaime urged shortly, and his smile was disarming.
