And yet from Hie. news Iliul trickles out of Iliul unhappy hind il would nppenr Ihal Ihe empire is n inline only insofar as Klhinpiu is (oueeriied. I'or since n considerable purl of Ihe Million iiriny was withdrawn there 1 has been willed it pitiless warfare and il bids fair lo co i ilium: until Ihe rainy season. The former lighting men of llaile Selassie, no longer under discipline, are engaged in brigandage, and while 200,000 Kalian soldiers ore still in Ihe land which was taken al such expense and cost of lives, there appears to be little prospect of any peaceful development such as was anticipated and promised by Mussolini. There may be room for a good many Kalians in Klhiopia but not many of them N,| will be willing to become settlers in Ihal distressed land, not niilil Hit: Ihonsands upon thousands of brigands have been suppressed. So the plan to establish a second Italy in Klhiopia may and probably will be long deferred. P HKMIF.M MUSSOLINI has made il quite ..... . clear Ihal he wants no developments in stability of j decision by France lo abandon partially its gold stand- j aril nnd Ilius put itself on Ihe same basis as j the I'niled Stales and (ireal Hrilain was forced by circumstances over which stales- , men have lillle control. \ Following Ihe World War France accn- | mnlaled the second largest gold reserve in | the world. Us allies and Ihe enemy countries were economically disabled. Indus- j tries were disorganized; unemployment pre- i vailed; foreign trade was crippled, but re- j habilitated I'ranee was able lo eonlimie its \ commerce and drain gold from its debtors. To prevent commercial and financial disaster (ireal Hrilain and its sister commonwealths went olT Ihe gold standard in order lo protect its reserve of Ihe. precious metal nnd to maintain a more or less stabili/.ed currency. The I'niled Slates followed Inter. In the commercial and financial transactions between nations Ihe buyers and sellers have lo know Ihe prices of commodities by an established relationship belweeit Ihe currencies of each country. Otherwise goods might be bought al one price in Ihe country of origin and by fluctuation they might cost more when Ibey arrived al their destination abroad, (.old was Ihe acknowledged standard of exchange among the trading powers, and this bore a definite ratio lo the money standards of all countries. When adverse trade balances look Ibis gold from one country lo another in disproportionate amounts Ihe transaction menaced industrial and financial stability. * Franee has held oul on the gold standard, but this has alYectcd its export trade and through that its monetary standard. Its exports were reduced and il had to pay in gold, and recently this drain had become serious. Temporarily. France will lose slightly. Hednction of the value of the franc will make its commodities cheaper in relation lo foreign money. Hut this will increase its export trade and protect its gold reserve. Fven- lunlly. Ibis action will mean the adjustment of foreign exchange throughout the world on a stabilized basis and so promote international recovery. Doubtless Ihe economists of all nations have been looking forward to Ibis belated step. WAN AFFKCTS KCONOMICS W IIICIIF.VF.H faction wins in the Spanish civil war, the tuition will sutler. The destruction of life and properly is a blow lo the stability of the state thai may prove irremediable. Its young manhood is being squandered in bloody conflict; the peaceful conditions of life and industry have been disorganized; priceless treasures of ancient architecture have been destroyed; and the menace of hitler factionalism that believes in force rather than in reason has been engendered. "So much for the internal devastation that is being incurred by the present conflict. When one side or Ihe other is victor the effect on Spain will not end with the return to peace. The economic results are now beyond the power of the combatants, and Spain faces permanent losses in foreign marketing of its fruit products. According to a French orange importer now visiting Los Angeles, California growers have an opportunity to capture Ihe French orange market which hitherto has been almost a Spanish monopoly. France, he says, has been importing from 8,000,000 to 10,000,000 cases from the Peninsula. "Now this is abruptly stopped," he says, "and probably cannot be resumed for a long time." War has always dislocated economic activities. Before the Crimean \Var, Hussia was the principal exporter of wheat to Kn- ropoun countries. Thai conflict diverted the production of this commodity to Kansas, 7 MAKE IT UNANIMOUS N OT often do the sponsors of a Constitutional amendment have a change of heart and ask Ihe voters lo reject Ilieir handiwork, but Iliul is what happened with reference lo Proposition No. 211, as il will appear on Hit; November ballot. The amendment, as fathered al Sacramento, made provision for changing Ihe title of Ihe California Hailrond Commission lo Ihe Public Service Commission, that being more in line with the activities of Hie board in question. Later il appeared, in drafting the short amendment, there were omissions and interpolations which are calculated lo place Ihe Commission of Ihe future under political control and lo weaken its authority. That, it seems, is now as plain lo the authors of the bill as it is to all who study il, and as a result, the former are among Ihe most active in opposing its adoption. The authors one Senator anil two Assemblymen say that in formulating Ihe amendment, "changes were inadvertently made which, if approved, would result in repealing some of the most desirable provisions of Ihe original Constitutional provision creating Ihe Kailroad Commission. "Therefore, we. Ihe authors and proponents I of Ibis measure, respectfully urge the voters to vole 'No.' " Which it would seem ought to settle Ihe fate of Proposition No, '2',\.

Hho Jumped tip and ran to tho window, looking down Iho bay to Whip Harbor whbro tho Mariner lay, KlInllriK In tho sun. This was her day! Ono day out of 10 sho could break the rotitlno of her twice-daily fllKhls as stewardess on Iho Overland Airways, lo spend a day and night in Oakland, Her piano left at 8:05 for her home port of Reno, hish up beyond tho Sierra Nevada range on tho fringe ot tho desert. Standing In tho shower, sho sang. lM*t night sho and Monto Blalno had danced until 8, but sho felt completely fresh noW after her sleep. Kho decided to lounge In her room until lima to go to tho airport, Monte had promised not to call. Ho had paid iLHsldiious court lo her for tho past <18 hourfi and shn luul told him he positively could not have anolhor mlntito of her lime. Monto was Impulsive—a bit too much BO. Just then the telephone jingled, Kay frowned nnd thought, "I'll toll him a thing or two." Sho wrapped tbo lingo towel about hort wont to the telephone and pinked up the re- reiver, saying crossly, "Oh. don't bo so tiresome. I was still In tho shower." Utit It was not Morite's laugh that greeted her; H WIIH Ted Graham's voice. "Oh!" sho Hnld, with a high-pitched little cry. "Crossed wires," Ted said. "Monto wan Just In the office and said you were free until this afternoon. T'vo put him to work and now he's out of the way' Hut If you want to Inspect the Mariner—or—" bo hesitated. "I'm driving nn to the San Carlos valley to sen the kid. You remember I told vou aboul my adopled son, Dickie. When I'm In port T llko Ho snatch him out of the military school nnd take him up to camp. It's lovely up there. Would vou like lo go?" "Oh, I'd lovo It!" she said. "I can Inspect tho Mariner onv time." He said. "I'll como by for you In my car." • * * She dressed hurriedly. Tod, sho knew, was anxious to see tho boy and she didn't want lo keep him waiting. Hhe put. on her simplest i white, linen frock with a gay kerchief, matching ber Kreen eyes, tied | around her throat? Kbe was waiting ! In front of the clubhouse when ho I drove up. "There's something about you!" Ted Hiild. ptiz/led. And that was all ho said JiiHt then. Tin didn't realize that, In sotting ber apart, he. had paid her the compliment women prize most. Kay leaned buck In the scat and watched th« flushing panorama. They sped past the green hlllH oC Florkoloy nnd began to climb a road between tho yellow walls ot a can- Angeles, trip. j yon . Soon ttigy were In a high val- ley where there- were plctuant flolds of wild flower* an* little pines. Wvorythlng was freshly gtwn and In bloom. i , They drove up to a group of. yellow bulldlngft, nestled among some pines, and Ted got out, vauTtlng up the 8tep» to the Wtilllng r6om. Ho came out a-few minutes later With Dickie. Dickie, was going on 8 and In his smart gray uniform looked very manly. Kay thought he was adorable, I to had surly yellow hair and blue eyes and one dimple. When Ted Introduced Dlcklo ho saluted her gravely and then took her hand. Ho sat between them, his gloved hands resting In his lap. To her first Question ho said, "Yes, ma'am," but she asked him to call her Kay. Ho looked to Ted for permission and Ted grinned. Dickie said, "Kay," tasting the name as he would have tasted a new brand of chocolate, * • * I.ater, at the cabin In the valley, Ted said, "Dickie's mother died when ho was born. Hl« father was killed In an airplane crash when Dickie was n. The kid hasn't had much family life." But Dloklo was joyously happy now. Ho had taken off his trim military uniform and wore tho roughest clothes he could find. "Presently he went flylncr to tho woodhouso to sec If his old friends, tho chipmunks, still lived there. Ted wouldn't lot Kay do anything. Ho told her she'd get her dress soiled or a Hi-nudgo on her faco. ' fctho Mat, watching him pro- paro their lunch and eyeing him with amusement. Tho cooking was simple enough. There wore only wieners to boll and coffee to bo made. All tho rest, a prepared lunch, Tod had brought with them. Hut sho observed that ho knew how to make good coffee. She passed him a complement that made him blush tinder his tan. "I've been batching It for 15 years now—since my wife died. With Jerry Searles. Jerry was my bomber during tho war and now he's a mechanic at tho homo port. Dlcklo adores him—but that was the trou- hlo. Tho kid was hanging around tbo airport too much. That's why I put him In military school." "He'd probably be happier at the airport." Kay said. "He'll bo a great flyer—like you." Ted busied himself with tho pots and pahs, then turned to her again. "I'm pretty much of a lone wolf now. T'vo been living In tho air— for the air. TJnck there—15 years ago—I was terribly in love with my wife. That was when flying was really dangerous. I survived several bad crashes, but sho died, I bo- lleve, from a succession of shocks caused by tho dangers of my job. That's why I never married again." Kay said nothing. Dlcklo was still watching the cblpmunkH, and they could hear tbo Hhrlll chatter of the mother and babies high up In a tree.
