W&r Is 'Hellish' system of using secret agents tfi gathef military inform.ition is "Hellish," says Secretary of Commerce ifenry Wallace, and should be replaced by open and above-board interuationaj dealings,,,- - "• , ,,.i ^Surely most of the country will say '>men" to that. In fact, it is quite possible that most of the country had ah-eady reached this none-too-recondite exclusion before Mr. Wallace delivered iC to niember.$ of the Women's Na- tij&nal Democratic Club in Washington. ^&x,iiqw that everybody agrees on the hellishness of spying, what are we E«iTig"fo do about it? Shall we set a g3od example by dismantling our new pgacet.ijt)6 information service? Shall vjj ;.then call the nations together atoimd- .the United Nations table and ekact from them a promise that this subtleTami'. sinister practice will be re- iJZnmccd from now on? )tlt would be wonderful if we could do that. Perhaps some day we can. But rjjht now it seems realistic rather than cynical to say that we should be foolish to make the attempt. For we should be repeating past mistakes. . •« Heavy armament production and big navies are hellish, too. So, back in the $rly'"Twenties, the Unifed 'States called a[; conference of great powers to scrap sjbme existing warships, tear up the plans 'for others, and- put a general sftop to expensive, wasteful, provocative preparations for .war. The United States 5xe4»,OT) .to. al_l agreements and set a Splen'dKl-S;arn'pfe'.'"""°'"."'"' ^•WafMtEelf was certainly hellish. So, back in the late 'Twenties, an American Secretary of State' and a French Premier ^collaborated on an agreement re, nouJicIlT^' V'ar as an instrument of national policy. The Kellogg-Briand Treaty wiVsT "signed by 62 of the world's nations. ^If^wars were to be outlawed, a large standing army -was not only hellish buL .impractical and unnecessary. So theTttuUed^'State's set'a good example b^> maintaining,:'in • the year that war again broke out in Europe, a Regular Army, of less than 200,000 and a Navy of less than 125,000 men—even though it had long been evident that the Kellogg-Briand -Treaty was just another scrap of paper blown down the drafty corridors of history. War and armament races and big armies and secret agents are nil hellish. But this country has never corrected them by Ignoring them. It has only weakened itself and brought suffering and death to its citizens. It needs to be said again that America cannot assume world leadership by trying to exert moral pressure while dissipating her inherent national strength. She must at least provide herself with as full a complement of protection as her neighbors have. Only thus can she lend full power to the task of building an organi/.iition strong enough to preserve world peace. Meanwhile, our leaders should not be put off by arguments as silly as Mr. Wallace's statement, that infiltration of foreign agents into Russia in the 'Twenties contributed to Soviet suspicions today. Such infiltration was and is common in every major country, and Russian agents most certainly were and arc participating in it. If a government's knowledge of .foreign agents' existence were the signal and excuse for a foreign policy of truculent suspicion, then the world would be an even sorrier place than it is today. Evidently It's an Old Spenish Custom, Too Lobbying for Comfort Thu postwar world bus the atomic bomb, color television, a fountain pen that goes for two yours without refilling, and oilier assorted wonders. But, as Senator Klbcrt Thomas was complaining the other day, hay fever still abides in the goldenrod, and the common cold still abides in too many respiratory systems during too many days of the winter months. Furthermore, says the Senator, no Manufacturer has yet made a bed that will comfortably accommodate a man six-foot-six. Attaboy, Senator! The outlook for civilization and the human race has never been gloomier. Kill until we can see what mankind is going to do with its new atomic plaything, we might as well do our wailing in comfort. And it's good to see one of our legislators reversing the,usual procedure by starting a little lobbying for that desirable end in the halls ol' science find industry. * IN HOLLYWOOD; BY KRSKINE JOHNSON Jauntiness upon themselves. HOLLYWOOD. Mar. 20. (NBA)— "They're not Rolng back to shorts There's n new wnr coining up. It's and pajamas, limited in display to a hair-pulling battle of women. their bedrooms, for colors.

On th e other will be the gals who want their men to strut in gorgeous peacock hues, confident that they can hold them and wanting their sisters to die of envy. In the middle, as usual, is mere man. And the issue ts what he will wear in the future. Om tip on the inflninent fnicas comes right from the feed-box— from one of Hollywood's smartest designers. She's Norma, a statuesque beauty herself. Norma shrugs off the Insinuation that "dressing" a mail is no woman's chore. WOMEN "DRESS" MEN "Women have always dictated how men dress," she boldly asserts. "Show me a dull little mar clone up in monotone and you've put your finger on a hen-pcckec luisbnnd. Show me one in peacock hues and I'll insist equally that ?• woman 'was the cause of it all.' ' Furthermore, men's gayest plum age, notably sportswear, is design, cd and created by feminine hands says Norma. Naturally, it take courage for a man to go for til kind of shirts Crosby displays. Bu in days to come they'll preen in iner and louder feathers, she pre- licts.

Bradbury, director of the Los Alamos, N. M.. atomic bomb laboratories, in Washington to confer on plans for dropping j the fourth and fifth bombs on Bikini Atoll lagoon, gives ihe lie to reports that the Ixxs Alamos project has been deserted by scientists almost to a man, and is practically out of business. Bradbury succeeded Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer us director of Los Alamos lost October. Like most of the scientists on the job, he is a slender, soft-spoken, reticent young man. He was professor of physics at Stanford University when the war broke out. Commissioned in the Naval Reserve, he was first assigned to the Navy's proving ground at Dahlgren, Va. Then, in July. 1914, hi was transferred to Los lainos, and he has been on the omb project ever since. Slnch Los Alamos is the place here the bombs arc assembled, )r. Bradbury has a major vcspoii- bility in preparing for the Bikini csts. Los Alamos laboratory has been nd still is a restricted area, but ny Idea that the place is a ghost own just isn't so, according to Dr. Bradbury. There has been some eduction |n thc number of scicn- ists on the job, but that number still over 1000. Many of thf nen who have left had finished heir work, or had trained othci *Hri Tien for their jobs. ATOMIC RESEARCH NO LONGER ENTIRELY MILITARY Research at Los Alamos is continuing, snys Dr. Bradbury. It is not curried on as intensely as in war years. Thcro is no reason why it should be.
