There's No Democracy Wink There's War' You can -sec all sorts oi' lliiii|i« in the 1 smoke Uial dvil'U up from the Ijwiiins'cities and flic hiitileliclds of Spain tlicse days. They arc (lurk ami jjrisly shapes, most of them—things which, with had luck, may become purl of the world's future ono of these clays, So closely knit is Ihc fabric of modern society, so intricately involved aro Iho strains of cause and ell'cct, that Ihc world may ypl commit the muss hnra-kiri of a. general Ktironoim war because opposing poljtician.s in Spain look to the cnn and thu knife to settle 'their disputes. Hut of all Iho shapes which take form over Spain, Ihu most i'riBhlcn- itifj is olio which i:; occasionally talked •about seriously by people who ought to know belter: the prospect that the snrviviiiK ilemoiTaeios ot : the world—nations such as France and 'England, and perhaps the United States—may find .themselves fighting the great autocracies like Italy and Germany to preserve the democratic ideal in this world. Even if the last war, with its legacy of oppression and dictatorship, dirl not remind us of the I'ulilily of lighting to "make the work! sal'u- for democracy," a moment's thought about the way war is fought nowadays ought to • do the : trick. • •The Tir'sl luirson to ^ot:. busy when war comes ill a deiiioera'cy is Hie censor. The news columns of the papers/are restrained IVom incnlion- 'ing this, that, or the other bit of news. ''• , Then the editorial columns are curbed; let the editor start denouncing the war and pleading for peace, and he will find himself in extremely hot water—with the government stoking, the (ires. Freedom of spcerh goes simultaneously. You may be convinced that all war is wrong or only that this particular war is a frightful mistake; no mailer, if you air your views in public, you are more than likely to find yourself behiiid the bars before you nre a'-.week older. Freedom of assemblage dies wilh freedom of speech. Freedom of movement also dies.. The business man is obliged to conduct his business to suit the requirements of the general stall'; the worker who strikes can bo OUT OUR WAY dral'lcd into the army; Hie ordinary citizen is marched oil to Mghl, whether he likes thu idea or not. In oilier words, the democracy im- ini'dialely takes on all the aliribules of (he very dictatorship which it is lighting [o destroy. Democracy, for which. the war is being (ought, ceases to exist for the duration of the war. It may return afler the war ends and it may not. If it does, the unbearable discontent of the post-war period is as likely as not lo kill it for good. • We (alk foolishly when we talk of a new Kuropeaii war to preserve democracy. Democracy is like some oilier of Ihe world's great dream;.—it can bo saved in almost any way except by iighling for it, it will survive, in the long run, if Ihe world's great democracies can show IhiiL this system of government gives Hie ordinary mortal happiness than any other political system. Which means, of course, that we in America, today, are Iighling for democracy in the only effective way thai Unit great deal can be fought for. —Urucc Gallon.

SOW .CO OX WITl Till-] STUUV ' ; CHAPTER II •'•-•• •'• p LITTERING signs winked fa miliarly at Molly as she rolled along in Wick's smart car. They made Ihc mental visions she had conjured up seem unreal. In the darkness, she smiled a little. Brent was probably right when he called her a child. It had 'been silly lo inveigle Wick into this adventure. He had been nice lo humor her, but "The 'lied Poppy" doubtless wouldn't measure up. Tomorrow she would have a headache and wish she had stayed at home. Tomorrow she would be a good girl and try to leel grateful for her easy, protected life. She would golf dutifully wilh Dad, lunch wilh Brent if he asked her, shop wilh Donna for the Florida trip she was planning. Donna was restless, too, lately. "None of us is really living," Molly was thinking. "We arc only being whirled about by events, tossed around in a rosy cloud that hnsnU any reality." Wick's car had long since left familiar surroundings. Out here in the countryside, the wind had an eerie sound. It seemed spooky even wilh Wick beside her. "A perfect place for a holdup," Wick spoke shortly. "I've a funny feeling along my spine," Molly whispered. "As though doyens ot people must have passed along this same road tonight." "And sonic of them," Wick retorted, "aren't flic kind of folks I'd like' to meet along here." "Don't worry. I lett my jewelry at home." "You don't read the news- liapers.

Some were rather swank, Molly noticed Others looked as though the} were on their last legs. There was nothing unusual nbout Ihc place except the dense woodland around it and a sense ot isolation. A queer place, if you wanted crowds. But maybe more thrilling tilings awaited inside. Frances had said this place was terrific. It must have points, to be revealed lalcr. "Here's our cheerful choice," Wick muttered, lie helped Molly from the ear. "Not loo late to turn back," he added. "When I wake up behind bars, I'll say, 'Wick and Brent wanled me to be a good girl and I "Plenty . '"Police!" disdain of one who hns known only Ihc friendly prelection of the guardians of the peace. They were inside now, and a fall, suave-looking min came toward them, smiling. Molly fell his gaze rest on her for a moment wilh sudden, sharp interest. "He knows I'm not a regular customer," she hazarded mentally, "and suspects I'm ull set for something exciting." The proprietor signaled to o waiter, who piloted them to a table. Molly curved her moulh downward to signify to Wick her disappointment. Wick had been slulTy, deliberately building up an atmosphere which was about to collapse. There v.-as absolutely nothing here to thrill or excite one. The big room had the usual polished dance finnr. A large revolving mirrored disa in the center of-lhe ceiling bathed the dancing area in a ilooci of shifting rainbow squares. Mirror panels were set in the walls bclwcen other panels decorated wilh vivid red poppies. The crowd had nol yet come ' wouldn't.' happen?" Anyway, what could lo life. People sitting at tables indifferently, looking at a quite ordinary show with bored eyes. Perhaps alter ;l while thai girl with hah- like y'cen straw would be crying in h c r cup and that ugly man with her would flourish n linife—as Brent's edition would have it. » » » 'JiJlE music had begun. Loudly, •*• brassily and insistently, but Ihe tune was familiar. Nothing ilolly told Wick. "The Red Poppy! Don't they get opium from pop- lies? The name suits it. It could >ut anybody to sleep." "It could put people to sleep in more ways than one," Wick said, icrsisting in being stupid. Molly's gaze roamed about, and iien she stiffened with resentment. The man who had welcomed them at the door was star- ng at her intently. He spoke lo mother man at the table, who vhirlcd about in his chair and 4arcd nt her, too. She wouldn't tell Wick about hcsc obnoxious men. Wick might magnify the incident and start something. She smiled at the idea. Wick wouldn't, but Brent, if ic wcr6 here, would be certain to start smashing things. As though her thoughts had turned inlo substance, there entering the room—was Brent. "Look who's here! How did this lappcn' Wick's eyes traveled the direction of Molly's. He laughed. "It might be a coincidence." "I won't have Brent trailing me like a bodyguard," Molly spoke indignantly. "I — you shouldn't have' told him where we were going." Her eyes concentrated on the tall, blond young man who was studying a menu with such absorbed attention, so obviously unconscious of her. She was trying not to feel a sudden rush of pleasure, mingled with relief. There was surely no need foi feeling hot and bothered. Tin bold men who had shown sncl objectionable interest were nov engrossed in conversation, cvi dently having forgotten all abou her. daring or sinister in "It's a dumb sort of place,' .
