We have come away, with a new hope and confidence in America." Those are hopefuJ words, beautiful wqrds, words that sing lil^e music- They are one of the condlisiops reached by the fourth "Fortune Magazine" round: table. These round table discussions have been interesting from the start, the procedure being to assemble <t group of leaders (in this case 17 X o[them) in many fields, discuss fully a problem, and then find the points on which substantially all are agreed. The presumption is thai whon you find points on which all men of-a varying group agree, you've got something. These men were as diversified as to include Clarence Francis, president of General Foods; Sidney Ilillnnm, picsi- deiit of the Aniiil&mialcd Clothing Workers; Senator Joseph C. 0'iMiiho- ney; Edward A. O'Neal, president of the Farm Bureau Federation; Boris. Shishkin, A. F. of L. economist; Nel" ' son A. Rockefeller, and others equally assorted. • Yet they agreed oil hope of a solution of our one great economic prob- l?m— unemployment, under a democratic regime and by democratic methods. , ! '-''-Further, they agreed that the social KajiiSi of. .the past few years must b'c ; kept. "There wnsjjpjalk of "back to' -1920" among- either business, labor, or f«inn leaders. "The area o[ agreement.:' , among these leaders accepted what people generally have accepted—it is no longer possible to get "back to 1929," and not desirable even if we could, We must do bolter than that. The group agreed, however, that neither social legislation nor government spending is the complete answer—thai all economic groups and government, itself must concentrate on encouraging production and private investment.. Business, labor, the farmer, and government must unite on wage and price policies which will increase consumption aiyl maRe work. That, as we see it, means that business, when it scents profits, should not raise prices, but concentrate on more hales at lower prices—that is, wider distribution. That makes work. Labor, too, and the farmer,, should not seek prices for their work or produce which boost prices unnecessarily, Uiu.s rc- slitcliriK diiliibution and catting jobs _And the government, while it must pre- vent, abuses, .ought' to pflCOlirajfO. Pl> vate investment. Shishkin, for instance, believes that such planned policies could bring unemployment below the 3,000,000 mark, about the best that can be expected, This is America's great task. Such relief as war business gives to the uiK'inployineiU problem is at best temporary. It is welcome, almost too welcome, because that tends to create a reliance on it. But ii, is not |)erinaneii(, not solid, nor right. It will collapse when Ihc WHP collapses, Steady, relentless, unceasing eil'prt must be. devoted to putting the Ameri-. can economic on a sound basis. Nothing must permit us to lose sight of this, our American job. Results Some 1 six, months ago, the United States made, a loan lo Brazil. Some people wond.oral then whether it was. a good idea. Today the gesture is showing results. A deal has just been closed with for, $5,500,000 worth of American rails and, ships, and another for $0,500,000.. worth O f- locomotives and freight cars. Now a loan to Bolivia and another to Colombia are being proposed. American workmen who have jobs building engines and cars, vails,and ships, 'will be in favor of making them. It is quite true that the United Sliites was badly burned by making loans to South American countries in the "era of wonderful nonsense" of the twenties. Many of the loans were made under pressure and bribery; the proceeds were largely wasted; the debtors .defaulted, But .today,'even those countries which are operating under more or less dictatorial rule are engaged in huge programs of internal /improvement;-money advanced today is more likely to be used for useful purposes, to build up the countries so that they can,pay back, the loans in future. It is worth trying; besides; what else can a ..creditor country do, .whose banks, tuX? •stuffed, with unlpane'd deposits, and" whose vaults arc packed with Unused gold? •SO THEY SAY I;deplore the fact-.thai the United States lias' not- had 1111 ambassador ii, Bqrlin in .the niidst of, this world evWs.-Reprcscnlaliyc llanii|lon Fisl\ (Dem.-N.

Obviously Dan had not been drawn toward Marian by the course, of events. In characteristic fashion, he paced the living room floor, hands in his pockets, brooding eyes on the floor. His remoteness drove Marian to'the point of frenzy. RrcjikinE every resolution, giving-, way to screaming- nerves, she snapped, "That's right—pace and scowl. I'd think you, would. You men arc responsible for all the pain we women suffer. Look what Pele. did. to Carma. Look what you've done (o me." Raising his head he stared at ; her from under drawn brows. She had not known that his eyes could be so cold. This time she was not, going to get away with it. This was Ihe end. Involuntarily she braced herself.
