Can Amid War —at Bargain Rates The first, and biggest step in the process of getting a country ready for a war is to sell it on the idea Dial if war comes it canlt possibly stay out. We are getting a sizable <! of that soi-t of sales talk right now. if is. rajniug in on us from all sides, ami the argument rims about like tin's: If a'. major war starts anywhere, the world is so much a unit nowadays Unit its' effects.- are felb everywhere. Isoliv- impossible;, we got tangled up in the Just war and we shall inevitably get tangled, up. hi the next one. So we might as well make up. our minds to i,t, and co-operate with other nations now iii an, effort to keep the war ,-from starting. Now it may be true that we could profitably coroperate for tlic sake of world peace — if any major power showed the slightest willingness- to make any saerilkes for peace, which to date none of them, has done. But it is about time that .someone' ' got up in meeting' and pointed out the uttei 1 absurdity of that wo can't possibly stay out of the next war. Of course we can stay out of it. Nobody is going to be insane enough to • come over here and attack us; if we - just make up our minds that we aren't going to do: any lighting O f,- om . | )oino • Jot, aJid stick to. it, then we slay oul> . of war. It is as simple as that. Of course, it might be expensive. IVhoie volumes have been written to show that \ve wou|d have lost billions of dollars in 1917- if we had accepted the German submarine campaign and remained at peace. Our business boom would have 'collapsed, foreign trade would- have have stagnated, financial markets would have gone into a> tailspin. and' there would have been the dickens to pay generally. But the answer to that is simple: we lost billions of dollars anyway, in the long run, and saddled' ourselves with a mess of trouble that we still aren't entirely out from, under. From a dollars end' cents viewpoint, it would have been far cheaper if our government had bought up a)| the foreign orders that were outstanding in 1917— orders for guns, shell, steel, cotton, wheat,, oil and; alt the rest-— paid' the sellers in hard cash, towed: the whole lot out to the middle of the ocean, and; sunk it there. Our government paid the bills any- LE, (ARK,) COURIER NEWS ~"'~ way, in the long run. By going to war it simply took on some billions of dollars worth of other obligations—and, just incidentally, scut about 150,000 young Americans lo their deaths. The expenses of any course of action 'are relative. It is quite true that as the'world is now operaU'd it can be fearfully expensive for a nation like ours to remain at peace when everybody else is lighting. But there is this to remember; that nothing possibly can be as ruinously expensive 1 as <i win'. We ought to keep that fact in miml, when people start telling us how "i'i- evitaijlc" our participation in that next war is going to be. branch, fascist Probe As more details tome to light about (he discovery of hidden arsenals in France, and tlu> existence of a weird revolutionary secret society that was prepared to engineer a Fascist revolution, the startling nature of the conspiracy becomes more evident. For one thing, enormous sums of money had been, spent. These secret collections of weapons were no.small- scale affairs; largo quantities of antiaircraft guns,, anti-lank gnus and even Held pieces were found> in addition to huge stacks of rifles. For another thing, it is apparent that the threads of the plot go beyond the borders of Prance—for, practically all of the sei/eil weapons were of German or Italian jnamifjicturu. Clearly, it was no fly-by-night plot thiil wiis exposed, but a ^veil-financed and carefully organized conspiracy supported by men of wealth and influence. It will be interesting lo see what the French government learns when it traces the conspiracy to its B sources. The National' Labor Relations Board has been subject to serious criticism in recent months, but on occasion, it does some highly valuable work in averting strikes. Proof of this- is embodied, in the news from AJh'on, whoj-c media'tioti through tlic offices of an NI,RR regional director helped to prevent an ugly strike in the plants of the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co. Declining business had caused the company to lay oil' some 1600 workers. A brief sitdown strike followed; then the union called a mass, meeting and a full-dross strike looked inevitable. The best the governor of the state could think of was to call out the national guard. But the NMIB man—James P. Mil- lev was his name, by the way—gob tbu two sides together and helped work out a selfclcment. It only took about 2.1 hom-.s; it i-csultedi in mutual; acceptance of a compromise, and the strike didn't happen.

' CHAPTER Vlt "HADES" JONES was working over near tlic slream bed, now dry and usually so, which lay :il Hie foot ot tlic great cli/I. He was cutting saplinf Jioles—long slender ones—with which lo make ladders. He slopped swinging his axe to rest when Mary Melissa came through the bushes toward him. "You aren't expected io do this liard labor, Uncle Hades," she began. "Wasn't Mr. Holliman hired lor tliis?" "Ain't never shirked .no work yot, Miss M'lissy. Think I'm git- tin' old, do ye?" "No! Oh no! Sometimes I think you arc younger than I. But—" The old man was eyeing her closely, kindly. "Somcthiivs on yore mind. You been eryin'." She sal down on a rock, and lie wailed patiently for her to talk. "Uncle Hades, what do you think of—of. (he cook? The girl?" "Why she's a godd—'souse, ma'am—she's a danged redskin squaw ain't, she?" Uncle Hades' manner suggested that such a classification was sufficient to damn her irrevocably, forever and ever. 'Lissa nodded. / "I main—is site—is she all vight? Oh I'll loll you, confidentially, Uncle Hades. She is throwing herself at Dr. Barry! I think she imagines he's in love with her." Hades chewed on his tobacco for a few seconds. "I seen that already," he stated calmly. "I been liggerin' what to do about it." "You have seen it?" Mary Melissa was surprised. "You did?" "Yes'm. Everybody has, I reckon, except Bob hisself. Blind young squirl. Not that- he ain't right to me, ma'am, but—looky hijre, Miss M'Jissy, ain't choo sort ol took to him yoreseU?" His jaw slopped, working as he 'Peered at her intently. Her blush was answer enough. The old man cackled in friendly laughter. "Honey," he patted her shoulder paternally, "I ain't liggercd it out yelj but don't you worry none. I'd see him roast on coals before I'd let any-Indian make a fool of him." The old man picked up his ax, resumed swinging. He had the skill of long experience. And he liacl many a labor-saving trick stored away. Holliman was for lashing the cross bars or steps lo the ladders with small rope, alter setting them into notches. Hades made a stronger ladder ir. kalf that time by heating an iron rod and burning holes through the uprights, then inserting h£ short steps therein. Mary Mehssa was able to help him with the heating, and she trimmed the step ends with a hatchet., 'In two days we'll have ladders all the way up," Bob.predicted. "Who will place them?" 'Ljssa asked, 'Holliman and I. There are enough safe footings, mostly. We'll chisel a few. I'm anxious to start excavation up there, Miss Lane. You must be next one up. Ifs— it's marvelous!" He tingled with : enthusiasm, Mary Melissa saw. Honey Bee Girl kept to herself for the two busy days. That is, she said little, but she observed much. She had been rebuffed by Bob, who hadn't perceived her purpose, 'out she- was by no means admitting defeat. She knew some paleface tricks as well as Indian wiles, and she meant to use them. The very decorous, manner in which Mary Melissa now sought to gain Bob's personal ^approval did not escape Honey Bee's notice. Why should a white girl, miles from civilization, spend half an hour on her personal toilet each morning, and again before each evening meal? What mattered it, on a rough outdoor expedition, if one's hair were not curled and set exactly right? Or if one's rouge were not applied perfectly, and one's clothes meticulously dainty and clean? Honey Bee Girl, however, came from a race whose dominant characteristic is patience. » » * gHE watched her chance to catch Scott Holliman alone, at some distance from the camp. She came quickly to the point, a^' usual in her conversations. ', "You want to make money," she suggested, scowling, but not looking directly in- his eyes. "Why—yeah. Don't ever'bady? Leaeliville Society — Personal Dr. and Mrs. A. E. Robinson and Miss Dorothy Robinson and Mr. iind Mrs. J. p. Robinson of Pnra- i;onkl were Memphis visitors Thursday. Among those from Lcaehville who atlctuied the (iauec at Mo- netlc Tuesday night were: 1 Dcemt Wcinhorg. Nell pace. Patsy stau- dcnmtiyer. Uillie Rig gS| Frcidtnnu U'ettibei-p.

What's calm' you, woman?" JHoIIl-. man was also matter-of-fact. : "I know more about thee Indian caves." Honey Bee's speech had its brogue. "Thee white man, in' thee big cities, they pay-lor what I know." "That so? How's thai?" "I can. show you many fine jar. : Many big ollas, jjots and things. In cave. Not broke. Worth, many dollars. Some with thee horse design. You know!" Holliman knew. Most outdoors- 1 men do, in the Southwest. An ancient pot, from some prehistoric ruin, is likely to be worth $100 or more as a museum piece. A horse design used in ornamenting water jars and grain storage jars, wo_u!d more likely be worth $1000. Horses were not native to this continent. They were- brought here by the first Spaniards. Horse patterns painted on walls of prehistoric ruins probably are due to Spanish invasion, as at Canyon de Chelly or Canyon del Muerto, Arizona, far to the north ' Defiance Castle. But horse patterns on still earlier relics, especially on pottery pieces, might indicate descent from or communication-with Asia. Each such piece would tend to strengthen, the theory that America was populated first by Asiatics, hence each, such piece was of high value. Holliman knew that. "Jars with horses on.'em? Whole' jars?" Honey Bee nodded. "All right, I'll bite, What you; want?" 'You make thee love, try marry; thee white woman?" "Hunh?" Holliman was shocked with surprise. "You make thee love, Miss Lane.; Keep her away- from Bawb. I show you thee cave with horse jars." It'was sort of fantastic, funny i even, this strange proposition. But Holliman got the point. He pushed 1 his floppy 10-gallon hat back on' his head and grinned, but he told Honey Bee it was a bargain. "You do it—without me. You know,?" Honey Bee scowled at him, in her peculiar manner. She looked a liltle vicious then, for aU. her wild beauty. Hplliman so.-J bered. "Yeah, I see. " I get paid for' making love and k,eening my mouth shut, while you lakp Barry. | It's a deal.
