Back's Off and Looks at the War Oddly silent throughout llic first month of the European war, David bloyd George has ;\l last spoken', mid •' when he spoke lie said a mouthful. The little Welshman who was liri- tain's World -War premier, and one of the '.'Big Four" who made the peace of Versailles, has suggested thai Britain make clear that it is not fighting lo force back under Polish rule the uu-. willing people of another lace, nor for restoration of a regime which hail - 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 Gorman because Russia look over territory largely occupied by non -Polish peoples. His implication is that oven if" Germany sliotikt bo forced to dis- -..-•• 'gorge the part of Poland it lias swallowed, Britain should not ask the same of Russia, and that even if a 1'olisli •state should be re-established, it would look much' different from the one set up in 1920. According lo his book, "The .Truth' About 'the Peace Treaties," published ', last year, Lloyd George is not inconsistent in this slaiul. No one gave more ' trouble jthan the Poles in the Versailles , deliberations, he indicated. He cited re- I-peated ^instance's in \vhicli thy Poles '' demanded that more territory be included in the new Poland than was jus- " tilled by populations. France, liu said, wanted Poland to be 'as large as possi- • ble for. military reasons, and Frond) pressure led to including in I'oland "populations which would bo" an alien and hostile element ... a source o! permanent weakness and danger.' 1 The weakness has been showii, the danger realized. Now what? Even more interesting than what Lloyd George said was the lime he said it, just when Poland as :\ functioning nation had ceased to exist. Just what is Lloyd George trying to tell the British people and the world V He 'denied that he wanted lo relieve Britain of her guarantee to Poland, though he had been against making it without Russian support. , What will Britain rlo now? The Polish war is over. 'Restoration of a I'o- lish state is one of the British war aims. Bui what kind of a Polish state? 'Lloyd George's letter strongly suggests that the part of Poland taken by Kus- sia may never be restored. This would seem an •> effort to assure Russia that Britain does not want to fight 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 staled w«r aims of the British and French? At the end of a month of the Kuro- pean war, these arc the questions Britain and France may be expected to answer. Until such questions are definitely answered, it is difficult to pierce the fog that now lies heavy over the European war scene.' • . MONDAY, OCTOBER 2, 193'J Arc you one of the many people who have tried to woo .sleep by counting imaginary sheep jumping successively over an imaginary, fensc? If so, it's time for you lo fee) sheepish. It's the wrong approach lo Morpheus, says Dr, Louis J. Karnosh, 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. Reading 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 too hard oil the sheep simply makes you the goat. COPB. I9» BV I.CA SERVICE, inc. T. M. U. S. PAT. Off • SERIAL STORY WORKING WIVES BY LOUISE HOLMES tOPYWOHT, 1»»».

CHAPTER XIX WITHOUT 'sneaking to Dan, " M;iri;m went back to her own apartment and prepared for bed. H was a rite and she never neglected otic detail. She heard a crihbugo game going on across the hall. She did not know when Dan came in. The next morning she awoke (o cold reality. The fortifying wall huU crumbled during the night and with difficulty she erected it again. She and Dan breakfasted politely, Ihey might have- been mere acquaintances. Driving to the office, Marian felt unable to face the day without a bolter understanding with Dan. "We linven'i much except cadi oilier, Dun," she, said. He answered brusquely, "We lost each other a long time ago." "How?" fearfully. He scowled. "I wouldn't know. We haven't hung together. We haven't had (he same interests." "Is it too kite tor us to go back and try again?" "I'm afraid so. The thread which held us together has .slrek-hed and stretched mid finally snapped. I think it snapped last Sunday night." Frantically, she asked, "Couldn't we find the ends and tie them together again? It might not be just the same, but better than this, Dan. I need you—" His laugh jarred on her overwrought sensibilities. "Think it over, Marian, and you'll find that you don't need me at all, not in any way." MORE HIGHLV EVOLVED THE.

Iron, the car nt the building entrance. Without a word, she hurried through Ihe revolving doors. She was furious. She had humbled herself to Dan Harkncss for the last time. She had been a good wife to him, faithful and (rue. She had loved him in spite ot his shortcomings. And now he had the unmitigated nerve lo affront her advances with epigrams— a broken thread— indeed. All right— it he wanted it that 'way — = Mounting- anger carried her lo (he .closet where she slammed her ha I into the box. Turning (o the mirror, she looked into terrified eyes and the anger rolled away, leaving her shaken and filled with dread. What if (he doctor had been right? Why had Dan stopped loving her now— oh, why? She needed him, never had she needed him so desperately. A lillle voice whispered, "He's always failed you. JVhat did you expect?" With lightly compressed lips, she went to her desk, Jifled-tho paper wife and began going through (ho mail. The morning passed oil deaden feel of duty. Marian felt Mr, Fellows' eyes upon her, speculative,' somehow regretful. When no said, "Sally Blake can get oul Ihe letters from now on, Marian. It will give you more lime to work on the charts," she turned away, lier eyes Winded with weak tears. By finding a new job for herself, she had again defeated her purpose. With Sally constantly at Mr. Fellows' elbow, it meant that Marian lost intimate touch with oflice affairs. It meant (hat, more and, more, Sally would be consulted, that she would know the answers. Making the charts was a routine task; any one of the girls, with a liltle help, could have done it. Why had she let herself in for such a tragic miscarriage ot plans? i * * CHORTLY before noon Caima 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 wanted to ask a favor of you." "I'll do anything, Carma." "I thought you might see Randy Means—I have a feeling that he's interested in Dolly. Am I right or wrong 1 !" trying to bo flippant. "More or less right." "I thought so. Wouldn't you know it, Marian? Men are sucl fools, a pretty baby stare—the 'little woman' ..complex—" There was a weary, bewildered bitterness in her voice. "Listen, Carma—I'm supposed to be working—" "Oh, yes—sorvy. This is what I wanted to say. I just learned that the girl Pete married—Julie' —the name on her lips had a twisted sound—"was Randy's secretary." "Yes, I know." "Find oul about her, will you, Marian? Jiow old is she? Where did she. come from? Arc they happy or—or.lwis Pete sold himself dowiv the river to punish me?" She was crying, the questions came jerkily. "I'm going lo see Julie tonight, Carma." Instantly Marian wished she had not told Carma that. use keeping the thing alive. The sooner she found a lifcof-her own, a life in which Pete and his wife did not exist, the happier she would be. Carma pounced. "Where arel you going to see her?" "I don't know just where we arc going," Marian hedged. "Randy is having a little dinner—" "Oh, Randy—he lives at the Mcdinah Club, he always entertains there—he said the fooel was the finest in Chicago—hm-m." Although they were miles apart, Marian could read tier thoughts. "Is it a party, Marian?" "Randy is taking Dolly, Dun, and me. He included Pete and— and Julie." , VI see. Tomorrow, llicn." Carma sounded hurried. t * * •JXTARIAN fretted over Ihe silua- lion. She considered asking Randy to change the location o£ :iis dinner. Finally, assuring herself that Carma had too inucl'^ poise and dignity to do anything" melodramatic, she forgot her. Marian left the office early. At the beauty parlor, her own special operator combed her hair nnd changed the polish on her jiails. Dan picked her up and they drove home in a nerve-destroying silence. Later, dressed in the new Eiscn- berg, Marian might have stepped from the cover oJ a fashion magazine. Even her face might have belonged to the pictured girl, Jifc- less, carefully expressionless. She and Dan went to Dolly's apartment to await Randy's coming. Dolly's attire, aided and abetted by Marian, was above reproach. There was a beautiful sheen to her amber-colored hair, the little pancake hat sat cunningly over one eye. The black suit fitted her' round, pretty figure snugly, her while gloves were new, not a sign of a handkerchief was visib Inner radiance softened her ej» and sweetly curved her lips. Di| looked from her lo Marian an* back again. , Randy came and Marian was amazed at Dolly's easy, charming manner. They drove to the club in Randy's car, long and low; streamlined as a torpedo. Marian and Dan sat in the wide back seat, far apart, an eternity apart in spirit. Weariness dragged at Marian. The evening had become a test of endurance. At the club, going'.with Dolly (o the ladies' lounge, Marion's heart skipped a beat. Had she- seen Carma at the top ot Ihe steps which led to the bar? 11 couldn't have been Carma. She had been 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—rich furs— had Carma mentioned a purple, ensemble? ''M?''^'- ~~'j' : "-'' (To Be Coiu'imic'd) THE FAMILY DOCTOR T. M.
