How a Btggw -N<ivy May Luid lo, Pe It would IJB a sti'Uiige 'thing i!' Uiu four new $60,000,000 battleships .soon to be added to tlio American navy .should be the means of leading the world back t to disarmament inul peace. Strange — but not unprecedented. For however welcome (lie pill may he to (lie anti-preparedness tamp, it remains trim that it was a suptT-powcrful American navy which led directly to an effective peace movement in the early 1020,i If. we had not had a truly gigantic naval force at that time, the armament race of today and the Asiatic War which is now being waged might well have come a decade sooner than they did come. Par it does seem to Ije true that u United' States fleet which is a match for all comers is one of the most potent arguments for peace. Go back a little way in history and sec how it worked out the other time. An enormous naval building program was started by the United States during the war. When the war ended, this program was continued. As we swung into the decade of the twenties, America had a fleet which no other, nation on earth could match. Great new battleships and battle cruisers mightier than anything afloat were 'about to be put into commission. Auxiliary ici-aft in swanus existed to supplement them. ,• • ' { . And because no other iiiitioir eduUI .-match .America's wealth, 'no other nation ' could hope to catch up. Within a very few years, America would be the unquestioned mistress of the seas. That single truth was the dominating. factor at the Washington arms conference. We initialed that conference; the stupendous reduction program which grew out of it was initiated by us. Because Secretary Hughes was in a- position to say, 'Take il or leave it," the ether nations took it— and were glad to take it. Naval reduction was not the only fruit of that conference, either. Tim far eastern situation was tense. A war was obviously Tn the making— sl war winch looked certain to involve America. That tension was reduced and that war was averted. The Washington C on- icrcncc boufcht for the world H decade of peace, as well as ar> end to a ruinously costly arms race. _ [ l was "Me to do those tilings turge- OUT OUB WAY ly Uncle Sam was the man who could put the most chips on the table. Right now the world is fast approaching a new crisis in its affairs. Once again it is staggering under an arms race; once again the clouds arc black on the oriental horizon. Sopner or later, some one must move for a conference at which these pressures caif fo'irlfghteircrt: And when thai day comes, a cfass American fleet—buttrc.ssed by the groat now battleships soon to bo built —might be just the factor which would make il a success. Tribnlc, To The tragedy of Germany's auti- J'.nvisli campaign is subtly illustrated by the recent action of an American tourist in iierlin. This man—Lsador Geiincll, of New York—obtained permission from the German authorities to place a wreath at tile base of Germany's memorial to its World War dead. The catch in it WIN that UK; wrualh lie put t|i ( . re |,uro an inscription dedicating it to Germany's Jewish war heroes. Mr. Ot'imcU was promptly tiui/xed by Iho police, but was eventually allowed to resume his travels—and the wreath, inscription and all, stayed there for some hours. Hut how the incident does illuminate the tragic blindness of the Nazi altitude! The Jews in Germany's World War armies took the samp rjsks the other -soldiers look, faced the same misery and pain, snllered the same wounds and died in n lc same bar- rcgcN. Whiit folly, in an attitude whjcb makes a simple payment of tribute to their sacrifice the subject of police action!

"I remembered tho lovely pictures, and I wanted lo sec them in a nicer place." "No," Alan heard himseif saying, to his own amazement, in a courteous tone that held none of his previous irritation.

He looked at his portrait; the •S;il head of a young Russian aristocrat, as he remembered her. : it," Ardalh said warmed to the simple statement. She was ignoran!, he know. Very ignorant about cul- nngs. But she made no pretense of knowledge, for which ••- admired her. "I don't suppose," Ardath spoke abruptly, "that you would care to paint me?" did want lo paint her. But "I don't know," Alan temporized. "Have you ever posed for pictures?" "I'm a model for clothes," Ardath replied. "I pose every day for somebody. I shouldn't think Jt would be so very different." "Very different," Alan said 'Posing for clothes doesn't require any mental effort. But when an •irtist demands a mood—" "What kind of mood?" Ardath questioned, her eyes on his. Alan colored. Never mind that If this girl thought she could force him into confidences, she was mistaken. His thoughts were lis own. There had never been i woman yet ho would care to share them with. Yes, there had been one. A beautiful clear-eyed girl, whose clear eyes had masked deceit. The most dreadful of all deceits. A conspiracy to lopplc his pride and professional integrity. A conspiracy lo make a soft fool of him The thought of Jill, bringing with it again the pain of broken romance and disillusionment, made hir^feel more tolerant of this girl with her purposes so honestly exposed. Yes, she would prouably prove an apt model. He didn't like her. He distrusted her. But he might paint her. "I think," drawled Ardalh, who had watched indecision playing over his face, and read It wisely, "that I'll leave my address and telephone number. After all, you might need a mode!, some day. Who knows?" * * 3 *A FTER she had gone he looked at tliu small card. Ardath Holm. The name seemed to suit. The address, he told himself, meant nothing to him. It was just as well to tear it up, is small card Dial \vas a tangible temptation of some kind. But instead, Alan crossed to a lest and dropped the card into, a drawer which held some receipts and more unpaid bills. The next day Alan saw Jill's picture, as he carelessly turned the pagos of a newspaper. Jill, he read grimly, was having a ball. The date was some time away, but the event was heralded ns one of major importance in the winter calendar. The brilliant ball was one Mrs Wentworlh had had in mind ;i long while. She wanted it to, eclipse any social affair Jill had ever been given and to rank with the elaborate parlies of the seu- "n. H would be, Jill thought, with a new cynicism, exactly like a bold label: "Look,what tile debutantes of this season have to offer And then look at what marriage with the daughter of John Wentworth offers. Not to be ignored even if. her debut is two seasons cold " * * - JJER mother was desperately eager for her to marry. Well in this respect she was not so vci-y different from most of the other mothers, Jill IhouRht. All of thr:ni were anxious to weep nt daughters' weddings, and give (he bridegroom a grateful peck on the cheek foi- taking them away. Well, at least, she would compromise regarding the ball, and he paraded once more. And then came an electric, daring thought. She would send an invitation to Alan. Patty would learn his address. From Ardath Holm, if necessary. Jill felt almost lighthcarled as she played with the happy idea, which was entirely within the realm of possibilities. "I can't understand your sudden enthusiasm for (he party," Mrs. Wentworth said, fixing Jill with a speculative eye. "Is there some special reason?" "Nothing special!" Jill's voice sang, as she prevaricated bravely. She added, a little anxiously, "Sometimes I think maybe we shouldn't have such a large party, mother. Haven't you noticed that father has been looking worried lately?" "Nonsense." Mrs. Wenlworth's ?oice was sharp. "What could he possibly have to worry about? Most men look worried. It's a way they have of impressing their wives with their importance. Every husband thinks oE himself as an Atlas going around with .ho world on his shoulders. You lever sec any of them cutting out parties they want lo give because of the expense." Just the same, Jilt resolved, I'll sound father out. All her romancing of. the moment before seemed childish and ausutd now. f father didn't want, hey wouldn't have one. . If he did. she would send Alan •ui invitation.
