Britain Backs Off and Looks ai the War /Intnv Oddly silent throughout the first month of the European war, David bloyd George ))us at last spoken', and ' wh.cn he spoke he said a mouthful. The little Welshman who was Britain's World -Wiir premier, and one of the "Big four" who made the peace ol" Versailles, has suggested that lirilaiii make clcav that -it is not lighting to force back under Polish rule the uii-. willing people of another race, nor for restoration of a regime which had been a "wretched class government," . had failed to prepare its people for defense, and then deserted them when their "feudal" government tumbled about their ears in military disaster. These ;are bitter words. Lloyd George goes further to suggest that the Russian invasion is not as bad as the Ucr- • man because Russia look over territory largely occupied by non -Polish peoples. His implication is that even if Geinwny should be forced to disgorge the part of Poland it has swallowed, Britain should not ask the same of Russia, and that even if a Polls)) state should be re-established, it would look much different from the one act up in 1D20. According to hi.s book, '"Hie Truth About the Peace Treaties," published last year, Lloyd George is not inconsistent in this stand. No one gave more ' trouble thiui the Poles in the Versailles, , deliberations, he indicated, lie cited re-. , ; pealed . instances in which the Polos " ' demanded that more territory be included ill the new Poland than was justified by populations. Franco, he saUl. wanted Poland to be 'as large as possible for military routions, and Kronen pressure led to including in Poland "populations which would be" an alien and hostile element ... a soitrc'c of permanent -.vcakncss and danger." The weakness has been shown, thu danger realized. Now what? Even more interesting than what Lloyd George said was the lime ho said it, just when Poland :us a functioning nation had ceased lo exist. Just what is Lloyd George trying to toll the British people and the world?, He 'denied that he wanted to relievo Britain of her guarantee lo Poland, though he had been against making it without Russian support. What will Britain do now? The Polish war is over. 'Restoration' of a Polish state is. one of the British war aims. But what kind of a Polish state 1 .' Lloyd George's letter strongly suggests that the part of Poland taken by HUB- sia may never be restored. This would seem air effort to nssiiro Russia that Britain docs not want to light her, but only Germany. Any restoration of Poland can be accomplished only by a full-dress war on 'Germany. Such a war has really not . started yet; Will it start .soon, and will it start at all? And if it does, what will be the stated war aims of the British and French? At the end of a month of Ihe European war, these are the questions Britain and France may be expected lo answer. Until such ijiiostions are definitely answered, it is difficult to pierce the fog that now lies heavy over the Kuro- pcan war scene.' • MONDAY, OCTOBER 2, 1939 Arc you one of the many people who have tried to woo sleep by counting imaginary sheep .jumping successively over an imaginary. I'cnsc? If so, it's ' timu for you to feel sheepish. It's the wrong approach to Morpheus, says Ur. Louis J, Karnosli, Cleveland physician. Counting sheep, or any similar dodge, says Dr. Karnosh, simply concentrates the mind on the expedient, thus keeping the insomniac wider awake than ever. Heading in bed, or any sort of mental gymnastics, simply defeats the whole plan. The real -thing to do is to relax as much as possible and then try to avoid thinking about anything in particular, thinks Dr. Karnosh. Trying to concentrate loo bard on the sheep simply makes you the goat. Safely Comeback After showing' slight increases in June and.July as compared to a year ago, the traffic toll showed a decrease in August, thus resuming the long trend of reduction month by month. August, in fact, 'showed the lowest death total for that month, 2690, since 1932. This was accomplished in Hie face of an increased volume of travel as reflected by gasoline consumption. •It:is still possible to show in Iflii!) a b,ig saving^of human lives ovor 1038, for despite/the bad record of June'ami July, the fatality record for the first eight months of the year is still slightly below that of last year. But with n loss of 18,980 lives already this year there is still plenty of chance for improvement. A battle on the European front that look 18,000 lives would be counted a sanguinary one. •SO THEY SAY I SIDE GLANCES by Gafbraith The people jurat excited In Europe were lite Americans.—Senator Robert R.

U was a rile and she never neglected one dcluil. She heard a cribbiigc game going on across the hall. Kite' did not know when Dan came in. The next morning she awoke lo cold reality, 'the fortifying wall had crumbled during the nighl and with difficulty she erected it again. She and Dan breakfasted politely, they might have- been mere acquaintances. Driving lo the office, Marian fell unable to face the day without a belter understanding willi Dan. "We h.iven'l much except each oilier, Dim," she^said. He answered brusquely, "We lost each other u long time ago." "How!" tearfully. He scowled. "1 wouldn't know. We haven't hung together. AVe haven't had the same interests." "is it loo laic for us lo go back and li-y again?" "I'm afraid so. The thread which held us together has stretched and stretched and finally snapped. I think it snapped last Sunday night." Frantically, she asked, "Couldn't we find the cncis and tie them together again? It might not be just the same, but better than this, Dan. 1 need you — " His laugh jarred on her overwrought sensibilities. "Think it over, Marian, and you'll find that you don't need mo at all, not in any way." tit jyTAIHAN got from the cav at the building entrance. Without a word, she hurried through the revolving doors. She was furious. She had humbled herself lo Dan Jliu-kness for the last time. She had been a good wife to him, faithful and (rue. She had loved him in spite of his shortcomings. And now he had the unmitigated nerve to affront her advances with epigrams— a broken thread— indeed. All right— if lie wanted it lliul'way— Mounting auger carried her (o the .closet where she slammed her hat into the box. Turning to the mirror, she looked into terrified eyes and the anger rolled away, leaving her shaken and filler! willi dread. Wliwl if (lie doctor had been right? Why had Dan stopped loving her now—oil, why'.' She needed him, ncvcv had she needed him so desperately. A litHe voice whispered, "He's always failed you. .What did you! expect?" With tightly compressed lips, she went to her desk, liftcd-the paper knife and began going through the mail. The morning passed oh leaden feet of duty. Marian felt Mr. Fellows' eyes upon her, speculative, somehow regretful. When Ive said, "Sally Blake can get out the letters from now on, Marian. It will give you more time to work on the, charts," she turned away, her eyes blinded with weak tears. By finding a new job for herself, she had again defeated her purpose. With Sally constantly at Mr. Fellows' eluow, it meant that Marian lost intimate touch with office affairs. It meant that, more am) more, Sally would be consulted, that she would know the anssvcrs. Making the charts was a routine task; any one of the girls, with a little help, could have done it. Why had she let herself in for such a tragic miscarriage of plans? * * * CKOKTLY before noon Carma. called. Marian was in no mood for Carma. "How about lunch today?" she asked. "I'm so sorry," Marian lied. "I have an engagement today." There was a little disappointed silence, then, "I wauled to ask a favor of you." "I'll do anything, Carma." "I thought you might see Randy Means—I have a feeling thai he's interested in Dolly. Am I right or wrong?" trying to be flippant. "More or loss right." "I thought so. Wouldn't you know it, Marian? Men are such fools, a pretty baby stare—the 'little woman' .complex—" There was a weary, bewildered bitterness in licr voice. "Listen, Carma—I'm supposed to he working—" "Oh, yes—sorry. This is what I wanted lo say. J just learned that tlie girl Pete married—Julie" —tlie name on her lips had a twisted sound—"was Randy's secretary." "Yes, I know." "Find out about her, will you, Marian? How old is she'? Where did she come from? Are they happy or—or has Pete sold himself down the river to punish n\e? ; She was crying, the. questions came jerkily. "I'm going to see Julie tonight, Carma." Instantly Marian wished she had not told Carma that. No use keeping the thing alive. The sooner- she found a life of her own, a life in which Pete and his wife did not-past, the happier she would be. : Cerma pounced. "Where are! you going to see her?" ' , "I don't know just whore wo ai-c going," Marian iiedged. "Randy is having a, little dinner—" "Oh, Handy—he lives at the Medina!) Club, lie always entertains there— lie said the food was the (inest in Chicago—Imi-m." Although they were miles apart Marian could read her thoughts' "Is it a party, Marian?" "Randy is taking Dolly, Dun, and me. He included Pete and and Julie." , "I see. Tomorrow, then." Cannu sounded hurried. fretted over the situation. She considered askin" Handy to change the location ol his dinner. Finally, assuring herself that Carma had too mud"poise and dignity to do anything" melodramatic, she forgot lier. Marian left the office early. At Ihe beauty parlor, her own special operator combed her hair and changed the polish on her nails. Dan picked her up and they drove home in a nerve-destroying silence. tatcr, dressed in the new Eisen- bcrg, Marian might have stepped from Hie cover of. a fashion magazine. Even her face might have.' belonged to the pictured girl, Jifo- less, carefully expressionless. She and Dan went to Dolly's apartment to awail Randy's coming. Dolly's attire, aided and abetted by Marian, was above reproach. There waS ( a beautiful sheen to her amber-colored hair, (lie litdo pancake hat sat cunningly over- one eye. The black suit fitted hex- round, pretty figure snugly, her white gloves were new, not a sign o£ a handkerchief was visible. Inner radiance softened her' cycjj and sweetly curved her lips. D:t looked from her to Marian anj back again. Randy came and Marian was amazed at Dolly's easy, charming manner. They drove lo the club in Dandy's car, long and low, streamlined as a torpedo. Marian and Dan sat in the wide back scat, far apart, an eternity apart in spirit. Weariness dragged at Marian. The evening had become n test of endurance.. At the club, going with Dolly to the ladies' lounge, Marian's heart skipped a beat. Had she- seen Carma at Iho top of the stops',, which led to the bar? H couldn't have been Carma. .She had been 1 ' mistaken. In spite of herself, she had a chilled sense of foreboding. That woman going down to the bar—she had only seen her back —dark purple gown—rieh furs— Had Carma mentioned a purple ensemble'? '••-'•'^•V-; ;->•>*••••• (To Be' Continued) THE FAMILY DOCTOR T.
