A Ray Of Liglil Shines Over Western Pacific Like a liny TAJ' of sunlight in n gloomy and darkening world comes word that Japniioflc (tclcgales io tlm Institute of Pacific Relations Kession at .YpseiiiKe, C'nlif., dcliniUly ' indicated tluU Japan would be willing to SIKH a treaty with the- United- States and Great Britain to guarantee permanently the independence and neutrality' of the Philippines. Thcso delegates do not officially represent, the Japanese government, hut there is reason to hclievc they arc not backing an idea that is repellent lo the Japanese powcr.s-tliat- he. • Up jumps the gentleman with the cynical eye, and says "Yeah—jusl the kind of treaty Belgium had in 1!>M!" Vet when the present period of madntss passes, the work! must return to treaties and mutual arrangements that arc move than "scraps of paper" to nations that are as true to their word as are honest men. The fact that supposedly honorable nations have been tossing treaties into tho wastehasket with .sickening, regularity of late docs not mean this will always he true. A [treaty tiMranleeing Philippine independence and neutrality would he of definite advantage to all fhrue countries involved. To the United Stales and Britain it would mean freedom - from concern about thut• pui-liculav corner of the'Far lOasl. Japan-'has her hands full'" at the • monicnt'ancl for some iinic to come in Asia, meeting increased resistance from Soviet Kussia and a reviving v Chinese nationalism, and -with huge - chunks of lUancliuria swallowed but still undigested. Further, General MacArlhiir has perfected a defense plan for the Philippines that would make Japanese attempt at conquest a bloody and costly job. , So it is possible that Japan may be entirely "on the level" about a desire to stabilize the southwestern Pacific by making a reality of th c di-catn of an independent Philippine Island group. , ': . Certainly thai. is infinitely desirable to the United States, which looks with increasing distaste on continuing responsibilities in one or the hottest corners of thc earth. Just how hot it is may be seen from the fact that the chief importer of OUT OUR WAY American munitions in recent months has been the Dutch Kast Indies. Dutch East Jiidics? What need have they of armament? Well, it happens thai in the Dutch Kast Indies are Die vast oil re.wrvc.s and storage tanks of the Dutch Shell Oil Co., to a large extent -British controlled. Surely Hie Dutch Kusl Indies are not increasing their naval air coast pati'ols because they think everything is (juiet on the Far Kasteni front. Perhaps it is not too much to hope Dial Ihe little ray of sunlight which shone through the institute meeting may broaden out into genuine sunshine in the western Pacific. —Bruce Catton. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 20 1936 More fate runs '• Men who hold honorable discharges from C(;C camps are now to be organi/ed. The nucleus of a national organization is being formed in Ohio, incorporated in Columbus under the name, "Veterans of the CCC." It is too early to tell what the course of .such organization might be. If it sticks to announced objectives, to help'young men get jobs, lo support conservation and stimulate business, it might develop into a valuable organization. . There is, after all, no stronger bond among men than to have passed lo- gelhcr through common experiences. Should the CCC "alumni" turn out to be merely another self-seeking organization, aimed at bonuses or favors for its members, and formed into a bloc of voters "deliverable" al the behest of its leadership, its worth would b<; open to question. The nntion will watch with friendly interest, thc -course of this newest "veterans' organization." •Lighl Destroys Evil A meeting of Michigan police officials, form dialing plims to reduce crime, noted that the decline in organized riickotecriiiK is due largely to newspaper publicity. , Often a man who,had been paying •tribute lo racketeers''for years awoke for the first lime to exactly what was going on when he read an account of the racket in his newspaper. For the first time 1m realized what a sucker lie was. Then it was only a mailer of the victims of racket gel- ting together to slop them. Newspapers, if read carefully, can give Ihe public a vast amount of information on what is going on in its midst. The .criticism that newspapers do not contain enough valuable informal ion comes from those who have never troubled to read more •than the headlines. All evils fall when the light is turned strongly enough on them. It is lime Hint fiicse busybodlcs arc told •what, their ancestors foiigbt for.

Steve fumed, suddenly, to Molly. "Make it snappy. And think up a good one." "Sure," Molly said in a tow, husky voice, lapsing inlo Hie liin- guafjc and .lone she luid counter- felled so successfully during her imprisonment. "I met Ibis poor kid, down town and she looked all in, and I said, 'Come on, ride home in my limousine and I'll dress you up sv.'eli for once in your life and I'll wear those rags you've gol on and give rny boy friend thc laugh of his life, f—'" "Molly!" Brent cried frantically. "What arc you doing?" "Molly!" Steve Black mimicked. "Liltc licll she is. Well," sister you probably diii your best." "Can't you sec she's acling?" Brent's agony was in his voice and eyes. "Molly," ho pleaded, "yoa can't help me. You're throwing your life away for nothing. Don't you know the only thing that would make this bearable would be lo know you were saved? I swear, darling, I'd die happy to have you safe again. Molly, think of your father!" . "All right, Louis Scramble our traps together," SUvc commanded. "H it hadn't bcjii for your damn dramatics we't? have gotten away a Jong time %o."

"What ;n-c you trying to do? Wipe up l-ic floor with my clean shirts?" S'icvc asked angrily. He sloopcd and picked tip sonic of the garments, still keeping a hand on his gun.

Even rats like you can't slip through the circle of police around this place. As another precaution, we punctured your automobile tires. Take it easy Your first movejwill be your last All right, boys, go in and take 'cm They're all yours." It seemed to Molly that tho place was swarming with uniformed men, materializing before her eyes out of.thin air. She flung her arms wildly about Brent. "Oh, Brent, we're not going lo die. We're goiru; to live!" He held her close. The next moment he felt a friendly hand on his shoulder, . "So you thought you cotilfl come up against a gang single-handed young man?" Chief Donavan grinned, "At that," he continued, "you did a fine job of sleuthing' Led us right lo the spot." "But how—?" Brent began, dazed. "It's a long slory," (he detective replied. "We've had our eyes on these fellows and were pretty sure Nelse Ferguson was connected with them. We were fairly certain, loo, that some of the same Dirndl bad given us Ihe tip that Ferguson pulled the bank job, also telling its when and where he couur be found. Hut the reason why they were double-crossing lira puzzled us. On lop of that the Milford girl is found dead (beg pardon, Miss Milford), and then a young fellow brings us a Jicture of Leola Barlow and says she can't ho found. Her picture was a dead ringer for Molly Milford and wo were all mixed up. "This fellow—Jimmy was his name—said he was a former friend of the Barlow girl. He said ;hc had a small mole back of one car. We got suspicious and visited tfie undertakers, and the girl called Molly Milford had u mole back of one ear. T,\'c didn't give out any information. We wanted .he gang to think we were hoodwinked. "You sec," the delcclive ccn- inued, "we figured they had naiiiigccl the masquerade, though vc didn't know how, and were planning lo gel in a ransom de- nand later.
