Wneu you read of the uoble work which the American Red Cross has done in relieving the victims of disaster, ia helping people take care of themselves, the question arises why more people do not contribute to this splendid work. The reason is that it is not possible to send canvassers lo every home in the land and ask for a gift. If that could be done, if the work accomplished was told in detail to all, it would seem that most people would gladly make some contributions, even if a small one. •As just onq item, the Red Cross cared for 138,000 stricken families in 17 flood swept states in 1936. Who would refuse a gift to those pathelic families driven from their home! by a torrent of dirty water? And as things of that kind are happening all the time, shall we refuse aid? It could be wished that every family which has a dollar to spare, might respond to this call, and send it to the nearest Red Cross center. What's this? Representative David J. Lewis Is taking the occasion, yinidst all the alarm congressmen are voifling about tho state of this ?overnmeiH's foreign relations, to move for H more aggressive policy in the Far East? Lewis has introduced a resolution culling for economic sanctions against Japan as an aid to termination o f the war in China. The resolution contends that the "invasion" of China by Japan was "in flagrant violation" of the Nine- power treaty and that the United States was "unintentionally, yet effectively," assisting Japan in that enterp 1 ise by supplying her with munirionp of war and other materials u.srful in such a campaign. The country has been warned repeatedly of late by leaders conversant with the Far Eastern situation that the proposal of sanction is a gtf p into war. Several of them have Questioned the interpretations of the Nine-no we r treaty and the alleged obligations thereunder. among these being George E. Sokolsky. an authority'on Far Eastern affairs, who spoke at the Forum here the other night. Surely Representative Lewis cannot be deaf to the repeated warnings of the danger of our getting 1 entangled in this Far Eastern situation. Surely he heard the reverb?! aliens resulting from the unfortunate speech of Roosevelt Chicago. Surely he has heard man- ifestiufans of a strong desire of our people to keep out of it.all.

While the British Cabi net was watchfully waiting for Lord Halifax's report on his visit to Berchlesgaden, the German Chancellor—only a few hours after he had parted from his English guest—announced in an address at Augsburg that "the moat difficult part of the work" of educating the world on the justice of the Reich's colonial claims had been completed. Though he predicted that five or aix year* will elapse before a solution will be reached, foreign diplomats have been quick to read into his words the implication that Great Britain's opposition to his program has been weakened.

Turkeys do not cost as much as they used lo, and our people are quick ;o discover this fact, and use these noble birds in greatly increased numbeis. After My Own Heart I have been searching now for over half a lifetime for just a few people—after my own heart. I mix with many people. I sound minds. I listen to'good arid bad talk.' I stand on street corners and speculate upon faces that pass me. I wonder how many there are in the great throng whose hearts beat as mine, whose purposes tune ; with those I own. It's a sad errand, this searching for a pal, an understand- er, and a friend. A lifetime is all too short for such a task. But often a discovery is made—as is that of rich gold by the plodding prospector. . . , Today I dined with a man who said it- was a long time since he had to meet.a man who was So much after his own heart as this humble writer. That statement pleased me, but at the same time it challenged me. What did I have that my friend didn't return in double measure? These brief essays are written quite as much to search out my own nature as to suggest and hope that their thoughts may help to stimulate joy and a little peace to those who may read them. My cup of joy is refilled daily by the letters of understanding that flow to my business desk each day. My silent, unknown friends. To many I breathe out a prayer of thanks and appreciation,-and say to myself: You are after my own | heart. I Our own nature gives us many a glorious clue to the urge and hunger that is in the universal heart of the world, and as expressed in fragments by what we write and by what others write us. A back-and-forth communication that helps to make us each akin. Much of the best that we are lies dormant within us. People, whom we are fortunate enough to meet, or discover, from time to time, stir us to reveal a little of our secret selves, which, in turn, unfolds the longings of others—after our own heart. We buy many things in this world too dearly—but not that mutual understanding of a friend who is after our own heart.

Lionel knew the way, and our horses toolc the road at a good pace. We came to the lake to find a dozen people gathered in gay canoes and on a low, long pier which ran out into the lake. They shouted when they saw us, and one of the girls detached herself from the rest and ran to meet us. She had a scarlet handkerchief bound about her head so that I could not see her hair, but I felt that it must be Miml, and 1 was assailed by a sort of dizziness. Then I heard Lionel saying, "Bernicc!
