' Red Termites Seek Shelter On the statute books of the United States there is a certain Voorhis act which requires registration with the secretary of state for every organiza- 1 tion subject to foreign control, or which is engaged in political activities, or ci- ' viiian-military activities, or whose purpose is to overthrow the government by force, violence or threat Negligence so to register is punishable by heavy "' fine and imprisonment. — Faced by this law, the Communist ^ Party of America dissolved its organizational affiliation with the Communist . International. But, at the same time, * the-leaders denounced the Voorhis act * as a Fascist law and satisfied their old * leanings by reaffirming their unshaka- \ ble adherence to "the proletarian inter- 'I nationalism of Marx, Engels, Lenin v and Stalin." That, of course, makes the whole ' proceeding smack of subterfuge. The „ Communists evidently do not fancy ; United States authorities looking into their books, seeing^ how their organization works and whose money makes the mare go.. The finances of any party are im-v. portant. Money is always necessary for the building up of a framework around which the believers and converts can gather. It is needed for the spread of literature. It is the thing which makes possible a party press. Small partie'g. need such a press more than -the^big ^ political organizations, r The new situation suggests various questions. Is a real American Communist Party, without European ties and backing, possible in the United States? At present numerically small, can the „ party finance its' own activities or will ;. it dry up for lack of funds? Or will it ';• still get money from abroad? The latter method is possible. The Communist Party, as such, may have cut itself loose from European affiliations, but there are still ways of beating the devil around the stump. There is no American law which prevents Comrade Redsky of Russia from .sending a gift of money to his dear.Amer- • ican friend. Mr. Red. And there is no American law which prevents the recipient of that money from being a party patriot and making a present to the party treasury. Small Communist parties, which might grow into bigger and more dangerous ones, have existed before. In spite of the war and the position of Russia toward the belligerents, there is still a Communist party in Great Britain and it still has one member in the House of Commons who makes himself vocal on any and all occasions. So far, the American Communist Party has never elected a congressman, but it can "always try to cash in on momentary discontents and disappointments of the people. The great safeguard is that the American voters are pretty well on to the curves of the Red termites. They Hang Separately Ben Franklin said a mouthful at the .signing of the Declaration of Independence when he flipped off those grim words: "We must all hang together, oi' assuredly we .shall all hang separately." In France, certain elements refused to hang together. Today they are being hanged separately. The Comite cles "Forges included all the most grimly-reactionary elements of the French steel industry, including no doubt some men who believed that a little "discipline would be a good thing for France." The Confederation Generale du Travaile, France's principal labor union, included many elements and leaders who leaned heavily toward syndicalism, the sit-down and general strikes. Neither t h o se manufacturers nor those left-wing labor leaders really bent their backs to support the republic in its hour of need. Each placed its own group interest above the common interest of all". So now the republic is fallen, and its successor has broken the backs of both the organizations. Because they stubbornly refused to hang together, they now hang separately. And is there nothing there for Americans to think about? Political Rarity The campaign is over, but the posters linger on. Months hence, the bedraggled and weather-beaten shreds of "Hoople-for• Judge" posters will still hang mournfully from fence and -post. . . - Not those of State Senator Thomas C. Desmond of New York, however. Senator Desmond, who has achieved something of a national reputation because of his determined fight on trichinosis, recently sent his secretary on a 1000-mile tour of two counties to remove and burn all of the senator's political posters. That ought to win the gratitude of the voters, and certainly it sets an example that could well be followed by both winners and losers in the political arena. • SO THEY SAY American men have a world-wide reputation for the money they spend on their women. I say bravo to you. Go right ahead!—Elsa Scnia- parelli, French dress-maker. I have the impression that France has been reborn.—Chief of State Marshal Henri Petain. * * * Of course, people will think I am a liar and a fool, but. I clon't care about making any money from this picture (Fantasia).—Walt Disney, movie producer. SIDE GLANCES ty OtJbriift C«PR.' 1940 BY NCA SERVICE. JMC. T. M. REG. U.

Have you found your courses satisfactory? What you hoped they might be?" "Oh, yes, Dr. Yorkl" Ronnie Bailey had a way of saying ."Oh, yes." She emphasized the yes, made it a sound of enthusiasm and gratitude so that it'was distinctly complimentary. Dr. York looked up from his record book at her. "Ah—quite so," he murmured then, inadequately. Miss Bailey always distracted him. "And Dr. York, J'm sorry I got myself talked about. Am I to be punished? Daddy said I ought to be skinned for—" "Miss Bailey, you are regarded as an adult here, which of course you are. Pueblo does not 'punish.' Of course, certain disciplinary measures have to be invoked from time to time, but your—ah—episode with the airplane and the Border Patrol was distinctly your own affair, and not reprehensible in the slightest, so far as I can see.

"I beg pardon?" He looked astonished. "I, myself?" "Yes! Do you?" "Why, ah—no. That is, I have never once been in—" "Goodness, Dr. York, you ought to be ashamed! This isn't the covered wagon era. This is 1940!" "Quite so, Miss Bailey. But my scholastic pursuits—" "Oh, ps-s-s-s-st!" She hissed at the idea, wrinkling her nose, then winked impersonally before she talked on. "Listen here, Dr. York the kids all say you are very human.-really." - ' •'•"-'. " - ' "They—they—how was that?"
