The Celling Pot On certain days in almost 'every federal court a big batch of "foreigners Lake the oath of allegiance to tne United States, thus becoming tull- fledged citizens of the land. There are names like Andrjan, Balzekovich, Bm- dofer. Schmidt Van puse'n. Csaszar. Greenstein, Jcjol, Kvasznitska, Mooney, Tsopanis, Chrisantortpolos, suggesting many sections of Europe. To these people AnVcrica has been "home" lor five years—perhaps more. Now they know America. They have.. perhaps, lost sonte of their illusions. But to them even an America forced to have peacetime conscription, to en- ad high taxes, to fight unemployment, 'and "depression in certain -lines of. indus- iVv— even this America still looked to them like tfie last, best hope in the entire world. Addressing them, a kindly, old federal judge speaks these wise words: - "America truly welcomes you. This country's superiority depends upon the services of its servants/'" It is another way of a't'n'rnilhg that the melting pot still melts. ed with fee cluty oi b'eihg his -jailers, so to 'speak.

THURSDAY; DECEMBER SIDE GLANCES On the Vanity 'Of Human Glory Former Kaiser William Second of Germany is reported to be ill and the doctor's in attendance are said, to be worried. No wonder. Any man ? ''~of 8L has a rather teniious hold on life, and furthermore, maybe the one-time, monarch has lost the will to live. For his career shows how 'fleeting is human power and glory, To have lost a throne, to have traded ru!e of a powerful nation for exile, to have exchanged Potsdam and a half dozen other magnificent palaces for the rnore or less simple house in the little Dutch village of Doom is sometimes compared to the final act in the drama that was Napoleon's -life.. But the cases are n'oi on all fours. •William ruled' Germany and 'merely sought a wider sphere through force of arms. Napoleon had actually "through war extended French rule over great Wretches of Europe. , William 'preserved an astonishing strength and health through lon'g years of exile. Napoleon died -alter long sut- fermg from an agonizing disease. William was treated with great def- ^rence by the Dutch' government. Napoleon's retainers have placed on record the foolish arid 'senseless treatment accorded him by the Englishmen charg- Refuting an Axis -Lie Pope Pius Xll recently delivered 'a sermon which certain Italo-German axis , j - .1 ....-, ''• '. ••(. ,y>- ,1 papers at "once tehdentfously Tnterpr'et- ed and twisted as a .sigh that 'the bead of the Roman Catholic cfrurch shared the axis viewpoint 'on Vital matters. Now" the Pope —unlike politic'al statesman—cannot rush into the •arena , and refute-every misrepresentation 'of what he said What he meant. The Vatican nevyspaper, Osservatore Rornaho, has "clarYfied : the issue, however, by stressing that the "Pope in his allocution merely reaffirmed in ^jgeheral terms the five points he Vxpound^tl last Christmas: in^ependetiee ; &r M, nu- r tions. great and 's'ntalV; ; dis'arm'ameht; ' international institutions freVd ot! past deficiencies; satisfaction for. \fust tie: mands of nations; aVrd restoration of 1 divine justice, in keeping with 'Ch'i'is- tian ideals. When Hitler and ilussqlini ofeser\ f! e these five points there will 'be some 'chance for lasting peace in a stricken world. Riddle This One A'dolf Hitler 'an'd Behito "Mu'ssolini 'arc clear pals.
