Heading a part of its stricture "An Appeal to Reason" the .)apanu($ organization says, mioting briefly from its lengthy statement: "Chinese Militarism, backed by Communist Imperialism, struck at Japan. Japan for self-preservation, struck hack, that is the naked truth of .the Siiio-Japaiiese hostilities." And the Chinese organization in its 'booklet quotes from a speech by Dr. V. K. Wellington Koo, Chinese Ambassador 1 to France: "In Tientsin the most crowded parts of the Chinese city were bombed for no reason other than to terrorise the -livilians. The sight of tUo mangled bodies and Ihc -cries of the maimed and , wounded were so " sickening lo the hearts of the foreign Red Cross doctors that .they voiced their ferveiil wish that the governments of the civilized Po'wers woidd make an effort lo slop the carnage.'' ' . In the Chinese booklet is a picture of a baby, crying and sitting alone in the wreckage of a home with this terse h cadi n g, "Orphaned by Japanese Bombs." Other pictures of ruin HIK! desolation bear the heading "Bombs Over Chiiia.' 1 ' As if in direct answer to the power- • fui plea for .sympathy cloiiucntly portrayed in the Chinese pictures the Japanese booklet declares: "The faking of pictures in the World War became a vast industry. . . So when you sec atrocity pictures again nowadays— try and be a little skeptical about their supposed truth. You'll be helping to keep down mass emotionalism ami your country out of other people's wars." After all, it would seem rather dif- iieiilt Under even ordinary circuin- .staneos for the average man to maintain a sane and-level headed view of the rights and wrongs of wars. And when we realize the extent to which propaganda is utilized to build up or tear down national sentiments we will be slow to enter upon another war. Fact a, !<'(int(ts y- - huscism We do a good deal of talking in this country about the danger of Fascism, and it is a K f '<>d thing tli;it we do—-It keeps us alert.

A mysterious hooded secret society, which seems to have ^mado grandiose plans for an armed "assault on the popular front government, is believed responsible for the existence of these arms.

The reason airplanes. Within a decide, says tile commission, ocean air service will be a very serious competitor to the luxury liners. Kig airplanes cannot carry a fraction of the number of a big liner'.* passengers—but "they 'can make many more trips, and they cost far less lo build. For 813,000,000, continues .the commission, one could build 18 big flying boats, with which one could offer a Uirce-piancs-a-day service across the ocean. At the end of a year, these planes would have carried as ma»v passengers iw n gigantic liner would have carried—and the liner won id have cost ?50,000,000, instead of S18.000- 000.

The man above had sensed, rather than actually seen, (hat something was v/rong will) his boss. He had seen the two girls below pointing excitedly, and too Jafe il hail dawned on him (oo that this cliff had a dangerous overhang. It would lie much bigger in vealily than it appeared from welow, he kview; distances'arc deceptive (hat When the rope liqcl acted eraitily-, swaying and iciking, Holliman deduced that Boh was trying to climb back up to s-afety, Out had fallen in the attempt. Actually, Bob had given one final swing and let go—to land on his goal, the rock ledge that held the dwelling. Other troubles were .'iliead—such as (lie way to get back down to camp again—but for the moment he was safe, lie had done an acrobatic stunt which iie himself would have called crazy under most circumstances. He locked down to sec bf>;;i girls waving at him. "ALL RIGHT!" he yelled. "Sorry to frighten you! He couldn't catch their answer, but he did hear Hades Jones, who was directly at the base o£ the cliff now. , "You dang young fool, we'd ought to lift yore SCALP!" Kades never was one given to gentleness. "Ain't choo got no sense?" yelled Bob, agreeably. "Figure out a way for me to get down, Uncle Hades." He couldn't hear Hades any more, and he didn't need to. He could well, .imagine the mouthing (he old man was doing. He shouted down Xor Hades to go after Holliinan. ."> * o -. down didn't PETTING ^ hair (ho prove (ask Bob at first feared it might. First, though,-he made a hasty survey of Defiance Castle—he -wouldn't have-missed ledge later. He found 19 rooms in the place, and crumbled walls of what must have been six or eight more. The rooms were invariably small, about 8 by 10 feet in most cases; obviously there had been many occupants, and space was precious. There were no windows. Doors were less than four feet high. "More pygmies," Bob muttered, smiling. That was an old mistake, he know; the ancient people made low doors for defense. Enemies might rush a six-foot door and lake a fortress, but they would have to stoop to enter a low one; one squaw inside with a club could thus defend il. He saw an abundance of shards, and many unbroken bowls and storage jars. Several weapons were in evidence, also fireplaces, bits of wood, even charred corncobs which he knew to be centuries old. Partly wrapped in a shroud woven of grass fibers, now decayed, was the dried shrunken mummy of an old man. Bob wandered, enthralled, as long as he dared. Hfl realized his obligaliort to his associates, and so reappeared, after half ah hbUr> oh Ihe outside or eastern edge of the great rock lip. He gave thought to getting out safely. ' » « * r^HE rope was beyond reach- so far that he wondered now how he had ever swung far enough lo leap into the cave. He still could see no possible means ot entrance or egress, unless a series of six or eight long ladders, supplemented by chiseled finger mid toe holds, were placed on the face of the cliff. There were some natural steps and footholds, nevertheless. Defiance Castle was the most impregnable of all the cliff fortresses he had ever seen, lie knew. When he was sure that no oilier means dflered, Bob did/'a simple thing. He grinned to himself as he worked. "I'll took like a real cave man when I descend," he told himself. He wondered what Hades Jones would say then. With his pocket knife, lie ciit and tore his shirt, handkerchief, trousers legs and undershir't-ihto small strings aiid tied their ends together. He let this long s,txing down to Mary Melissa and Honey Bee. Girl, then pulled up a small rope which they tied to the siring. With the small rope he then pulled up a stronger one. quent intervals, for "steps/' himself was back in camp sooh after Hades Johes returned with Holliman. The talk was very profuse all around, for a while, save for Honey Bee. When food had been served, and (he work of building a more permanent camp started, Honey Bee approached Bob aloao, just outside the supply tent. "I cried when you were up there," she simpered, rafher surprisingly, Mary Melissa overheard it. She was inside the supply tent, but obviously the Indian girl didn't know. Honey Bee's inflection was onb of secrecy, of deliberate intimacy. In the Indian's background, actions Were direct; one took what one wanted, one said what one thought, let the results to as they may. * * * ]VfARY MELISSA caught Ihc intent in a flash, realized in that instant thai Honey Bee was in love with Robert Barry. The thought astounded her. "You — you mean — ?" Bob missed it. "Aw, that's 'all righl, Honey Boo. Don't worry about me. But I'm sorry I frightened you girls. Certainly I don't want to scare the best cook 7. ever had." Mars' Melissa remained rjuiel until they moved away. Best not reveal that nhfr had overheard, even by accident, so personal u bit of conversation. The thing had upset her greatly. Thai, on top of the excitement when Bob was in danger, served doubly to unnervo her. She realized, though, that alt this was none of her affair, that this was a business trip in the interest of science, and from her standpoint a vacation from thn hectic asd somewhat stifling routine of society in the moneyed East. What if the red girl did throw herself at Dr. Barry? Mary Melissa was doing her best to philosophize, to be logical. But it wouldn't work. Logic wasn't the answer. Her eyes filled with uninvited tears, and a sob came. She got up hastily then, to go and look for old Hades Jones, She must talk to somebody. The white girl's chin was set, and her eyes were strangely 'hard,* as she »allted away. She 'knew there was just one thing in all' the world she wanted, and che meant to have it.
