WALL OF FIRE How Free Is Molotov? How 'free is .Molotov? Did he have to be so uncompromising in the Council of Foreign Ministers? Was he. obeying orders from Moscow, or acting on his own? These' questions must have occurred to many who every now and then read that Molotov was'in line to succeed Stalin, if and when. If he is as important as that, he should have had some choice of faction. Yet time and again he gave every appearance of stallin^ till he could get instructions from litpMe, or of reversing a previous stand because of orders from Moscow. How free is he? · Brbbably it will take Stalin's death to settle this. I£;Molatov succeeds him, he must get a good deal of tfi'f-blame .for breaking up the Council of Foreign MiiiisterSi But if the new leader is some other guy, then we shall know that Molotov, for all his glacial (fighity, was nothing but a puppet. ·* Walter Lippman says the Russians have lost a cold war.

Here is a gathering of the new generation which, not in the impetuosity of youth, but in the studied Consideration of their alert young minds, has the courage "to dare to believe in the future." . Cynics may say that every generation of young people has displayed the same enthusiasm. There is ii difference between today's youth and the generations of the past. Young people today know the score. They are more alive to the problems that confront the whole world than were their ancestors and that awareness, if human nature runs true to form, ' will generate a determination to do something toward the solution of these problems. There is a pledge for the future in the mere tact that 10,000 young men and women would voluntarily give up a large part of their holiday vacations to come together to consider their part in the human picture. · · This conference should inspire older generations for one reason above all others. The world has gone on from generation to generation trying to find the answer to such divisive and destructive plagues as war, race prejudice and supernationalism. No answer has been found. Even leaders of nations and people have become cynical and also skeptical of any methods other than those worn out by repeated usage and inevitable failure. Any suggestion that the cause is to be found in the refusal to consider the moral e foment in these problems generally meets with the derisive laughter. This conference of young people differs from many others in that it would employ the moral .element to the solution of these problems. Our feeling is that they are right in .this viewpoint and their tired and jaded elders are wrong. No one has a right to criticize or prejudge their approach until it has been tried. And if history teaches anything it teaches that the lime has come in human events to invoke the moral javire on a national and international scale. i It is still fitting, in Jerusalem, to sing sadly, "When khall my sorrows have an end ?"

Beverly mils. Calif. THE BEST WAY TO MAKE COFFEE (SO THEY TELL ME) In this column and elsewhere I not reeomme.nd the A. L. B. meth- have given from time to time these simple directions for making co ff ee: _l. Keep coffee in the bean and grind only enough for the day's use each day. 2. Put the coffee in pot with cold water and let stand an hour, more or less, before brewing. 3. Heat it up nearly but not quite to the boiling point but do not let it boil for an instant. 4. Serve within a few minutes. Whenever I mention the brew- ino- nf ^nffpo T ppt a startline variety of suggestions, criticisms, recipes, and the comments, as well as sonie letters thanking mo for telling how to make good coffee. From the National Coffee Asso- j ciation comes a report of a series of laboratory tests the Association made to determine whether there is any advantage gained from letting the coffee stand in cold water from .half an hour to over night before brewing. The Association assumes -.that . the extraction of soluble solids is the principal factor,-that controls the flavor and aroma of brewed coffee. I may be wrong, but to my mind aroma is smell, · not taste, and while the aroma of brewing coffee may be pleasant'it just infuriates me, because I hate to think that so much of what.should contribute to the flavor of the coffee is being driven off into the ambient air. Whether the flavor of sood coffee is represented entirely by- soluble solids I don't know, but I od and I assume no responsibility for coffee grounds, pieces of metal, fingers and things scattered over the premises in case the cookei lets go.

"The trouble is," Pam continued unperturbed, "girls' sport shoes make the same prints as men's these days. I didn't notice what type of shoes the artiste was wearing the other night." "I did." Brent makes his tone one of admiration, "She had on brown and white saddle shoes and she possesses a very trim pair of ankles." Pam withdrew her head. Her Boyle Muses Sceptically About Predicted Ways of Life in 2004 nostrils flared slightly. "You didn't miss much, you?' did "When one is a caretaker one those interesting must observe details." Her color rose; she started to say something t h e n v i s i b l y changed her mind. "Well, if you're taking your job so seriously let's get on with it." "Should be. A man who hires a caretaker must have somethin to protect" "You weren't hired, dear, re member?. No money involved." "Stop complaining . . . we'v a comfortable cottage." "Who's complaining? I'm mere ly straightening oui your sense of values." Pam took the flash and moved it over the paneled walls then she began thumping them methodically. They made a dull solid sound. "Now what?" Brent demanded. "Looking for the family silver?" "Well, in stories there are always caches behind panels. All I need to do is find the hidden spring. Besides, your Miss Marcel wasn't in here just to admire herself in that mirror over the mantelpiece." "Perhaps she has half your allotment of curiosity." Pam made a grimace at him that was wasted in the darkness. They went through the entire house. Upstairs the dust had settled and covered everything with fine powdery sediment. It had een disturbed very recently by he same set of footprints crossing nd recrossing into the various ooms. Even the closets had been jpened and apparently examined.' "She didn't want to miss any- hing, did she?" Pam commented. "Look here, Pam, you still don't now--" His voice died as Pam emitted a series of dry little sneezes. "Catching cold?" "No, it's this dust. Let's get out of here before my hay fever comes back. My bump of curiosity is satisfied." They left the house, Brent .securing the window and hammering back the boards as best he could. Zarathustra was waiting for them, his eyes glowing sullenly at being kept outside. Brent t pulled his tail not too gently. "You started all this, you damned grimalkin!" · "That's right," Pam said, "Blamf a poor innocent cat." "If Zarathustra has«ever been innocent he's a rare feline. Cats are allied to the Devil you know. Pam picked Zara up and cuddled him fondly; he responded with a percolating purr. "Seriously, Brent, what will you do?" "Write to Spence of course. The house seemed intact but he should be told that there's been a visitor." "Are you going to tell him about Miss Marel?" """No/Just that the window was broken but that we found things okay." Pam studied his face for a long moment. "I think you should at least describe the circumstances of finding Miss Marel to him." she insisted. Brent's jaws set stubbornly; a muscle in his neck twitched. "Look here, Pam, I'm supposed to be the caretaker here, not you. Luisa Marel's story sounded quite plausible to me. and as far as we know, no harm has been dflne. You're making a mountain out of a molehill because for spm« obtuse feminine reason you dislike her!" They crossed to the cottage in an uncomfortable silence.

Who am I to -quarrel with experts? Before I hop back in my buggy I must pass along a method of brewing coffee that seems unique and worthy of careful consideration. Reader A. L. B. describes it: "I put 8 cupfuls of water in our pressure cooker and 8 dessertspoonfuls of good coffee, seal tht. cooker, put it on the fire, and when the pressure readies 15 pouna- per square inch--in about ten minutes--T turn off the flame, let the pressure go down to atmosphere about 5 minutes), t h e n open the cooker--and there in golden perfection is coffee. Not an iota of aroma has escaped in the- brew. Maybe the pressure cooker people should turn out a special coffee maker with a pouring flap to open for pouring. By teaching people how to make better coffee you are making life easier and pleasanter for a lot of us who never knew how good coffee can be, until you taught us." It sounds to me as though A. ^. B. has something ther*. But T merely pass the idea alpng--I do his. A. Gustav Wind .says he had j to wait too long this morning and thought .he had better motor on foot to avoid being late for work.
