Unless" a- majority of the people voted for war, war could not be declared. ' The only exception would be in case of invasion by a foreign power of the United States or any other North American nation. ''Every man in the nation will jump tp arms in case the Ui)ite:l Slates is invaded or threatened with invasion," says Senator Capper. "But when it -comes to war overseas, Ilia American people believe they have the right to pass on their participation in such wars, and I agree," And says Senator LaKolleUe: "I believe that if the American people arc competent to elect congressmen and senators to make such a tremendous decision, they are equally competent to arrive at the decision themselves." It is pretty hard to find any flaws in that sort of logic. Karly action en one or the other of these two bills would bi: advisable. The danger of a new world war seems to he getting greater all the time. Here is o;!o wifciTiiard to which the American people are entitled—the right to say for themcHlves whether they shall send iirnm'.s to right overseas. The machinery lo jfh'c them that right might ac.' well be put in motion n't once. . . Rc(t(. Lot;e And Ego I'resident William Allan Neilson of Smith College thinks that sacred and holy mother love can be a good deal kru admirable than it is commonly supposed to be. Addressing ;i meeting of Smith College abimnae in New York, Dr. Ncil- !-uii declared that "nine times out of ten, mother love is nothing but .self lovo." He explained it like this; Mothers want their daughters to "do well" in school so that credit will b<: reflected on themselves. They plan their daughters' careers with Unit, rather than the daughters' well-being, in ni.ittd.. They send their girls to college—and immediately inquire liow often the girls can .leave college and come home, away from the great opportunities which college life holds out. The mothers, of course, might have a good deal to say in rebuttal. But tlie critici:-»m is a good one to ponder over—as a. .reminder -that -self-interest. is HO-universal a" Jumimr trait that it • can color even the highest and : noblest'; of emotions. / China Vw ;i time it looked ;is il" dctpvini- miUon-mid -numbers might outweigh 'training--ami equipment, in the war in China.

CHAPTER XI J-JOLLIMAN missed Mary Meliss;; at the corral, but when she rode back later in the morning he was dragging in some timbers mid so encountered her. "Purty day, ain't it 'Lissa?" he greeted. "Wbyn't you come ride over with me, where I'm cuttin' poles at? Hunh?" Not his words, but his inflection both angered and frightened the His lone was almost an in- "Thank you, but I must go on " She tried to be very to ramp formal. "Aw, come on! Come on! There ain't no hurry. Might's well enjoy this trip. Wo got to be out here a long time together. I bet I courd show you a right good time." H was the only approach Scott Holliman knew. He would have used it in the liny dance hall at Blanco Canyon, or in the larger and greasier one at Nogaic-s and the gaudier one at Tucson. But it didn't work here. Too mad to reply with dignity, and too refined to be undignified, Mary Melissa simply spurred hsr horse and'galloped off. She headed direct tor camp, intending as a partner hi the expedition lo report the matter at once to Bob Barry and let him settle it with HoUiman. ; "Dr. Barry?" she called, dismounting. She hadn't quite decided (o call him "Bob" yet, even though he used her pet name now. There was no answer. She investigated and found the camp empty. Hades Jones she knew was away for (lie day,'but she had left Bob and Honey Bee Girl in ramp. She wasn't at all pleased 'o find herself atone there; she ,yas Jrightened, knowing that Holiman was approaching. f She rode off again and stayed f to. Hunger drove her back jiihout noon, antl she saw Bob and .Honey, Bee climbing down the castle ladders. TJEH emotions were oddly mixed, by an uncouth man, a hungry girl who finds no food but sees the pretty cook out alotic with the potential lover, is in no. mood tor trivolty. "Delightful day for a walk, I'm sure!" She almost snapped It at Bob and Honey Bee. she was not smiling. Bob missed the implication en tirely. , "Say, 'Lissa!" he was beaming again. His boyish enthusiasms were one very vital part of Hobert Barry's charm. "Listen here —Honey Bee's a honey, and no joking!" . . .;•' . Bob's statement was, in reality, ope of thanks, lest he hurt the Indian's feelings again. But he did not notice- the anger and hurt that his statement reflected in Mary Melissa's face. The white girl paled a little, her lips tight. "Know what she did, 'Lissal Being an Indian, she knows all sorts of Indian signs and symbols. Well, she picked out one up in the cliff that may be extremely valuable to us!" He paused, dramatically. But Mary Melissa was just staring, her bis brown eyes studying him. Bob saw then that she was unusually sober. He had become accustomed to her smile. Instantly he was concerned. His voice was lowered. "Why—what is it, 'Lissa?" He took her hand, held it, stopped a bit to be near her. 'Jis something wrong? Something I—?" Ht wasn't sure what to say, and so he stammered. He was so very honest about it that Mary Melissa's emotions gave way to her good sense. She forced a bit more animation, a feeble smile, and answered him. "Nothing important—Bob.

"I've given this considerable thought After all, Miss Lane is the real patron of this expedition. We two are the mainstays, I mean. I don't, know what that new dungeon means, but I have a hunch it's important as possible. Now—if that news gets out, and the University professors get wind of it, we'll have maybe a dozen expeditions down here, probably reporters from newspapers and everything. Maybe before we could explore it ourselves. See? So. keep it quiet. I could trust old Hade's, but this Holliman is a stranger. He—" "Yes! Yes indeed, Bob!"
