Our .souial life flows inlu some pretty dJKtre.ssiiijr forms every nuv and then, but it always remains flui;!. Had as iliiiijfs may got, they never i;et beyond the reach of change, It is interest ing to find a Htriluaj; 1 example of thin by looking hack a few years at conditions in New York City. That peculiarly American form <>t highly urpjam'xed, commoi'cialwed and protected lawlessness which goes by (lie name of "racket" was enjoying • the high noon of its heyday, then. Kv- ery big city had its nickels, lull in New York they had been elevated to the stature of big business. Nobody 'had* ever seen anything like it. Bad as they were, the prohibition rackets wore (inly part of the picture*. OnciM'cspeetable labor unions hail conic under the conti'o) of gangsters. Almost every carrying and servicing -,. trade imaginable was paying its regu- ., Inr tribute to the ijin.scle men. There was protection for all of the big shots; the prosecutiifg machinery would not function) lite Alliance between politics niid crime was air-tight, tlu; police department was effectively .shackled, and pcttole were heginnintr lo (incept nick- cleen'iig as an ui'iivoklablc evil, like • traffic congestion. And the point is, not .so much lhi-,1' things wen* very bad, but tlUtt ; .llie.i'ft wag not the slightest reason to hope '" thaf they would ever be bettcral. It was possible to prove, by inexorable logic, that corrupt political rings would always i-tile the metropolis, that sueli rings would always maintain an alliance with the underworld, ami that the -iconic would go on and on paying toll Ihrough all tlio future. But somehow it didn't work out thai way. Somehow, in spile of logic, the pco- - pie of New York elected ,•• reform may- v or. Somehow an ineomiptiblc .special prosecutor was assigned lo clean up the moss. Somehow he found witnesses ,who ivoulcl talk, investigators wbp could not bo bribed, juries that wotild coin-ict and judges who would sentence. The racketeers began to go lo jail. Then other things that logically couldn't happen did happen. The re- OUT OUE WAY form mayor K»t himself re-qleeUil. The crooked political vfug^ was utterly routed. The special prosgeiUor got hiiyiself elected regular prosecutor. The unions that had boon viclinmctl by the racketeers \voko up aiul supported the men who were sending their crooked officials to jail. And so, today, the picture in Now York has changed; furthermore, it has changed in precisely the way that looked utterly impossible half a do/.eji years ago. We bavu discovered Unit gang- sterism is not an unavoidable part of big city life, after all, and that no evil is piu-manenl if Die people decidu they don't. wni|t it In be permanent.

This warning conie.s from l.icut- d'en. Iwanc iUatstii, commander of the Japanese forces on the Shanghai front. So far, it is only a warping; whfil gives il point is the perfectly obvious fact that if the Japanese do decide to lakp over the international city, the white powers have no way of slopping them. Fiich a 'development would completely change the picture of Kuropoan exploitation of China.
