Probably'some means will be foilhd to cany this through eventually, for despite nationalistic feeling, despite Uu- iffs, despile exchange difficulties, it is a "natural." Geimany desperately needs lard and all kinds of fats. Largo stocks of lard IHC hanging over the American market, clepiessing the price to the deli intent of the farmer and packer. Eventually some way will be found to do something about it. Last February It was widely } u- mor&d, so strongly as to caiibc price dislocations in the Chicago lard markets, that Ameiicaii co-operative asso- 6iatiohs were woiking on such ft deal, perhaps preparing 16 take fence wiie of other farm supplies in leUnn on a barter basis. This was soon denied by the central organizations of the U. S. co-opeiatives. This.time it is bupimsed to be large packers, opeiatinjj Under auspices ot the Irtstititle 'of American Meat Packers, who are taking the lead. The only question sefems to be: What can Gel- maiiy siipply in exchange lor (he lard winch will not be highly competitive with pioducts of Amciican industry? Harmonicas and Tyrolean hats would iiol seem to ofler much scope for a trading basis. , Acceptance of Asld marks seems out of the question, for the United Stales, has officially'vetoed any tiaflic in this "trick" ti tiding medium which has bi ought so milch giicf to other Amcii- cau countries which have bcoh forced to accept them. Eveiy large-scale deal pioposed with Germany meets vocal opposition fioni, groups who bee nothing wrong in leftist Mexico selling oil lo Germany, or in Communist Russia being Germany's best customer. Such people aic <|iiile willing to see left-wing countries regard Geiman trade as a business, matter, while insisting that the Uiiiled Stales regard it as an ideological or sentimental matter. There doesn't seein to be much sense in that. The whole essence of any such deal with ,Germany is A matter of siwut, hading. Ceitainly it is silly to sit here 'holding greedily to gieat surpluses of laid, wheat, and cotton which we do not have wit enough lo distribute to our own people, and yet to veto on sentimental ground any plan to scud it to countries which badly need it. The great thing is: what do We take in exchange? Certainly there is no point in exporting surplus lard to help the farmers and packers if goods arc taken in exchange which means less work for American artisans. If we c«n arrange to swap this lard for raw materials or goods either not produced in the United States, or not produced in .sufficient quantity, then it would seem a good place to let the miUiral forces of trade function. Peace and goodwill certainly lie uloiig the highroad toward wider and more normal trade relations,' not along the by-path winding between narrow nationalisms and artificial barriers. // King and /./i« /Veto World Thdre is a difference between the New World and the Old. We forget about it sometimes, and think that the difference is only one of place and lime.' But it is deeper than that. There is a youthfulness, an ir- repreiisibiljty of .spirit in the New World that liiis vanished from the Old. Advancing maturity, imposition of OKI World culture, have not killed it. The King and Queen of England have by how drunk deeply of this b'uoyahcy and exuberance, in Otiawa, the greeting of veterans was so'heart-fell that Their Majestic. 1 ! .spontaneously mingled with the crowd. , And at Meli'illd, a forsaken dust- bowl town of ShKkalchbwan, the last barrier fell. The royal couple not only mingled freely and iiiitjllrirtlc.ll among the dusty farmers, bill woiheli threw their arms atjotit the qiidbn iind kissed her,', and the king felt the thiinip of rough hiiiids oii his back in hearty greeting. It was the West greeting the Old World, and showing more honest love (ind devotion to their king and queen thai) the most scrupulous' courtier could express. Will these impressioiis ever quite wash out of the minds of the British kiiig iiiUI ciiieeii, olice they are back iu the stuffy halls of Westminster? Perhaps they will feel sometimes, even then, a breath of clean western air that will help dissipate.' the diplomatic fogs of Europe.

"Very well, Miss Franklin," Marlin said coldly. "If it i s so important, why don't you come here at six?" Mary's words spoken over her apartment telephone were equally cold. "No, Duke. We'll meet on neutral ground and it won't be your npartmcni or the Dove. Make it Peter's al one for lunch." Ever since yesterday, when Tom Ladd had censured her for trying to keep Clem Shirley out of ,the paper, Mary had only one Ihoiifihl in mind, to see Martin and warn him that he must slay away from Clem. In iier hysteria over what she considered Tom's bad temper, she forgot to be afraid of Martin. Would ho dare strike at her openly? Mary looked in the minor and made a face at herself. She had the jitters. Crying did thai. She had cried nil night, the ieai-s began to fill her eyes again. What it ninny. Cryiiig wouldn't help. Tom was the editor. He had (lie right to censure her if he wanted to. No, he hadn't. She never wanted to see him again. No man hart the right to talk that way to a girl. She hated him. * * * A POISED and self-confident Mary Franklin met Duke Martin at Peter's, a quiet, neutral litlle vafe, an hour later. He looked impressive in his dark blue homcspiin suit, mauve shirt and Charvel tie. ! A liltlc- too carefully, planned, perhaps, rather flashy, but certainly in character. Mary's 'costume was more reserved; wine-red wool with a smartly cut black fur jacket. She smiled as she shook hands with Martin, bill there was no compromise in her brown eyes. The hendwaiter, recognizing them both, led the way to <n table for two marked "Reserved." Martin smiled. "You pull the same racket we do. Keep n covi- ple of choice oiies fenced in for special customers." it was evident that the Duke was not in his best mood. "Well, what do yoii want," he nsked, as he and Mary sat down. A. waiter hovered at his elbow. ' Before she .could answer, he said, "Don't talk, let's give the order to this gnat and get rid of With the waiter sent scurrying on his business, Martin again put his question to Mary. . "Leave Clem Shirley alone," Mary answered. "Remember, the Janice French' case isn't settled yet." "I didn't come herb to wasle my lime making fool promises." 'It you don't leave Clem Shirley out of the picture, I'll start Fene- on on this tack," said Mary briefly. You ve got (6 stop seeing that gJi'I. "your business is writing, isn't it? Ever Ivy short stories?" "Occasionally." "Here's one without an end Perhaps you can finish it." He studied the wine list with faint contempt. "What a lousy cellar they've got! I didn't run rum for nothing." He beckoned to the waiter. "Two pinch bottle Scotch high-balls and let me see the bottle." * * * PASSING Mary a cigarct from his case and lighting one himself, he leaned back in his chair. "I can vouch for the truth of this story," he said. "I've always thought it would make a damned good yarn provided it ended the right way. There was a clever young gal on a paper in a city not far from here who didn't always recognize trouble when she saw it. Some people have a hunch about danger and some haven't. Now that's why I'm still this side of Sing Sing. I can smell danger." Mary's lips tightened. "You must have lost your sense of smell. I wouldn't call your position exaclly healthy." ."Nor is yours," Martin snapped. "Thu gal in my story has her choice between living a long and happy }ife with her pretty boy managing editor. Oh, I'm iiol so dumb," he said, as an angry flash colored Mary's face. "Or passing up the wedding bells for a cold, while slab in a morgue just where a girl friend o£ hers landed, be- caUse she couldn't keep her fingers out of other people's business. Which'Il it be?" Mary laughed. "You talk like a dime hovel. Drop tiie comedy. There's only one eiid to your •story. The girl doesn't wind up oh (he mbrgup slab. She doesn't marry the managing editor, but she does save the life of a sweet. 1 child who might have, landed in] he morgue herself-if your newspaper girl hadn't stepped in." "I've warned you. For your lealth's sake you'd belter stay out of my business and out of the Dove." ' •. ..••'.' ,< ,• ' ,,-- : •••' ! "The New York Gazette doesn't! stay out o£ any horiky tonk," Mary said sharply,. "eyen if the chairs are covered with silk and the wails with tapestries." She rose abruptly. "Well at least, Duke, we know where wo stand. I've just got time lo make Janice French's funeral. Would you like to come along?" "No, thank you," » » * THUE people who moved in the' Frenches' social sphere were (he sort that liked to be in good lime for funerals. Although, the notice in the papers had said "Services private," St. Thomas' was filled when Mary arrived. A dull, stodgy lot, for the most part, she thought. Old Mrs. Ward, Janice's great-aunt, hobbled in ahead of her. She wore a long black crepe veil over her black Persian lamb coat and she leaned on two canes. Mrs. Ward belonged fo Janice's mother's people. Mr. French, his slight figure looking even more frail in black, took not the slighlest notice of his wife's aunt. White head bowed, he knell in prayer. Mrs. French was not there. Directly in front of Ihe pew, resting on a blanket of pink rose buds, stood the delicate pearl gray coffin in which Janice lay. It was closed. Thinking ot Mrs. French, Mary almost forgot that she was there to get the story. With quick eyes she began searching for familiar faces and estimating the number of people present. In the left side front pews Mary recognized girls who'd come out the year Janice maclo her debut; Kathleen Hobsbn, crying gently; Mollie Tate, making a more successful effort to control herself; Bess Mai-lilt, a sulky expression on her pretty face, fidgeting, obviously uneasy; more at home in night clubs. Mary had seen her at the Dove several times lately, a spectacular girl with scarlet lips and boldly black eyebrows. Behind her sat Egertbn Mapleson. Across (he aisle, his wife.-. They iiadn't lived together in years, but boih in a vague distant way were related to the Frenches. When Egerton wasn't at funerals, he was at his club. His while fmislache moved up anil down as jie whispered something, to Alfred French, a cousin o£ Janice's. Mary had hot yet finished counting faces when the services began. They were brief; the simple Epis- . copal burial services, the singing of Hie choir and it was over. Later, at the office, in writing of .t, Mary found that her story centered on Mr. French. "Has Janice French's secret been surie'd with Her," she fapped out m the typewriter, "or will it be !old? This question was in the sgonrzed eyes of her father today at her funeral, 'Who is responsible for iny daughter's death?'?'- •-•"' (To Be Contihueil) ncmbcrs of the Mirt-Week Bridge club. MIS. W.
