Tradegy of the Man. Who Begun Too Laic. if there ever \v;is ;i man who seemed fated to live cut an acute |)i:rson:il tragedy on a public stage, that man must be the Duke of Windsor. llis recent speech before the Anglo- American Press Club a I Paris merely cwries his f.rjigcily one .sl.u'c further ami makes its ironic poignancy mure: obvious. In that speech the duke said that lie luid no intention of leadini; an idle life. He hoped, he said, to make some contribution toward solving the world's present grave problems; for thai raison he is making his present lour, studying labor problems in Germany and housing problems in the United States. The tragedy, of course, is Hie old, old human tragedy of "loo late." For tin's man who sets out to contribute to a solution of the world's problems is, after all that same confused, harassed and desperately unhappy person who stepped down of his free will from Die one place where he might have, been able to make such a contribution effectively. First' he was Prince of Wales and then he was king of England; and a!- thotigh the king of England no longer holds the substance of actual power. )ie possesses as do few other human beiiigs a sounding board from which ha can impress his ideas on the minds of his fellow men. His least word and his slightest gesture are ob'scrSe'i/rby , millions of people. ...... , Bui as prince, this man was noted chiefly for his association with the gay night crowd. America fairly crawled with girls whose proudest boast was that (hey had danced with the prince; England had dozens of anecdotes about his parties. And when he bedHme king the world wak'hed him eagerly—not to get a kiitgly and a significant hint as f.o the solution of. its innumerable woes, but to learn which woman, if any, he might choose to marry. He spoke to the world over the air waves, once, and the world hung on liis words—to discover thai (lie whole thing was too much for him and that iie was dropping out. And now this unluekiest of morlals wauls to "make some contribution" toward solving the world's problems! Small wonder that in hi. s confusion | lc . OUT OUB WAY ~~ studies labor problems in Germany, where there are no labor unions, and housing programs in America, where there nrc no housing programs. The man who lights with the host (here is in him and is beaten by circumstance is not a tragic liguro—not really. In this defeat there can be an everlasting trimnph. The genuine tragedy is that of the. man who is beaten by himself; the man who does have a glitniwe of what might be, but who ean't quite bring himself to act on it. And that is the tragedy of the well- meaning and likable Duke of Windsor. TOO MUCH, VET'. WE'LL PUT LESS IN THIS TIMEA LOT LBSS. Time For ('()iiij)roiiiisc Now Ilial the peace conference of the A. K. of I,, and the ('.. 1. 0; has adjourned temporarily, it is to be hoped thai the conferees on both sides will use the breathing spaco to examine the real meaning of tlu:. word "compromise." The (,'. i. 0. delegate.'; submitted a proposition which amounted (o a demand that the A. !•'. of L. surrender unconditionally. The A. K. of \.,. dole-' gates submitted a counter-proposition which demanded unconditional surrender of i,he (,'. 1. 0. Naturally, neither proposition was accepted, and the situation is exactly where,it was before. if there is to be a solution of labor's difficulty—and if there-isn't labor is going to suiter profoundly—there must be compromise. Each side must show nt least a suggestion of willingness lo give as well as lake. A quarrel like this one can't be settled until the nuarrelers understand that settlement means compromise.

It is the opening for the average person thai we're interested in; iuul unless there is some assuranc that nil ordinarily intelligent and skillful youth can have an ordinarily good chance of finding a .job for himself when he starts out, young collegians—and other youngsters, as well—may eye the future with misgiving. !?•. r r — ----- ^»- - ~:"^!!l4ff^~ft.--.t:r->-<*^\. > r~ ""-^y \^^V: - 1% V*-,>^ S^ 1 *:* \N> -A ^ ^ ^K&~k$5i •\%"{v<*po tl^pVV 4 * 7T J»5fe •NvKS^S.j • "•feSK' fesK?- ILL BY MARY RAYMOND Ccpyiight, 1957, NEA Service, | nc .

But, lo her am&zement, her husband vetoed the suggestion. "No use in throwing money away in large chunks, when we have every facility for enterlaining at home," he said. They were at Ihe dinner table. Jill, looking at her father, had (ho impression again that he looked weary and worn. Sho fell troubled. The next moment her stepfather's eyes met hers, and he smiled. "If Jill has her heart on having her party—" . haven't, though, dad," Jiil broke in quickly. "I'd halo having it away from home.''

"Jill I've meant to ask you before, but I've been so busy it siip;j«i mj mind. You nskcd Milo to receive with you, of course." "No," Jill said, "I didn't. It would be encouraging him to believe I care something for him. And 1 don't, I haven't any uso (or him, really. I only tolerate him around because ot the frier.-l- • ship between father and Mr. Mon- tanne." "Now, I understand what was :Uc matter," cried Mrs. Wentworth. "Any father would resent the slight lo his only child, lie adores Milo. Surely, Jill, it isn't loo laic to ask him to receive with you." "I won't ask him, mother. It would spoil the party for me." * * t [ILL left the room in a depressed mood. It couldn't be true that ti grown man—any adult person— would be petty about a thing like that. Of course, Milo had been hurt, even, angry, when he lenrned Jiil planned to ask Bill Whilman II to receive with her. He hadn't conic near her ;-.t Elise's parly, and he hud been stiff and priggish at the dinner at Ihe Worthingtons last night. But he would net over it. He always did. Ana >•; wouldn't have been honest asking him lo receive wilh her, when she would have loathed having him. But she mustn't leave her stepmother in this frame of mind. Jill turned, retraced her steps, and knocked on the dnor. "I gave Mh.s Dexter my list," Jil 1 said, pulting her head inside.
