And the very first day of debate was marked by a smoldering speech reminiscent of the smoke screen laid down in the Senate during (he League of l4aliohs debate 25 years ago. The American plan was subjected to a partisan attack by Senator iiushfield of South Dakota, who credited President Roosevelt with its authorship. He charged that the plan gave the President soe power to declare war, made him an "absolute despot" ami "true dictator." Apostorphizing the President, the senator asked if this were the platform on which lie is running for a fourth I'erhii Ail .'that is beside the point, flic newspaper article describing; the Ahicr- ica'n plan, on which Sehator iiushi'ield based his charges, says nothing about the President haviiig power to declare Avar. It slates that the use of force would/require the imanimbrts vote of fill perriinncht in embers (including the American) of the international oVgan- iznlion's executive council plus a majority of its other members; The AnieVicaii plan does not cvei'i slate how or by whom the American member of this executive council is to be 'chosen—at least the published version quoted by the senator does not. The question Of an international security organization has thus far kept pretty clear of politics, and it would b'e too bad if it started slipping in that direction. There is no reason why it should.' Even the iiiost pesKirriistic Republican must hope that the organization, oiice formed, will endure beyolul Mr. Roosevelt's tenure of office, however long. The Senate should and will give exhaustive consideration to whatever \-ec- ofti mended plan comes out of Dumbarton Oaks. That consideration'must Hot be in terms of Mr. Roosevelt, but of the country's wishes, welfare, laws and traditions. The danger ,of partisan sinokc screens is obvious; There are persons in this country who would bd only tob glad to use them in fostering their intense opposition to our participation in any world peace organization whatsoever. Both the Senate and the country should be on guard against these possibilities in an issue of such fateful importance.

But Leou- rd Decklcy's answer to his wife's iuestion was a plea of ignorance "I haven't seen Margaret Milard since I was liest mnn at heir wedding in— My God, it an't he 20 years ago!" "It had belter be. You said heir daughter is 19 "Good Lord, how tempus fidgets! I can see Margaret now as a bride.

As Len whipped out of his coat and waistcoat he was saying: "The years may have made a lot of changes in Margaret—damn you!" That was not for his wife but for ins coat 'and waistcoat as they missed the chair he flung Ihem at. "Marriage usually molts Ihe wings of young angels." He benl down, picked up Ihe coat and waislcoal, tossed them al the bed, and missed again. "Slay there, damn you! Bul you haven't lost a pinfeather." Tins last was for his wife. He started to dance oul of his trousers, caught one fool in them and hopped sidcwise, lurching ominously toward Sue's dressing table. He recovered himself in time; out, while he was 30 close, popped a kiss on her bare shoulder and gazed over it into the mirror beauty.

" The sound of the shower drowned her reply. She went to the bathroom door nnd repeated it at the top of her lungs: "1 suppose I will. But I'll bet she'll be shying the same thing about me.on their way home."

Let's save facli for other people—your Mrs. Hilyard, for instance." "She's not mine, (hank heaven!" He talked past his swishing razor: "I hope to God she's a good wife to Walt. He's such a right guy." Sue had encased herself in a coal 'of varnish called a dinner gown before he was out in the room again ah'd getting into the iresh things she had spread out for him. lie Valked right on: "It doesn't often happen that two good men friends have wives that can stand each other. But it would be nice if you could get along with Mrs\ Walt." His face vanished in his undershirt and dawned out o'f it. "His daughter adores him. Jennifer's her name. He showed me her picture. It was scrawled all over with girlish worship. He still carries a picture of his wife, too; but it's one she had taken just afler they were married. He showed it io me once when il fell out of his wallet, She had written oh ilr To my beloved from his faithful' wife.'" ; TJE mused on thai: "Faithful' - wife! Humph!
