Railroad Crossing One of the jobs which the government, profitably might consider in connection with its bit' works program is elimination of railroad grade crossings. .Most grade crossing accidents arc the fault of the motorists, lo be sure. And it cannot be denied that in the. dreadful list of traffic accidents the grade crossing occupies, relatively, a minor place. Nevertheless, the unprotected crossing is a danger, and it is one altogether too common in America. : Furthermore, railroads all over the country are experimenting with new high-speed trains. Speeds of !)0 and 100 miles an hour will, apparently, be fairly common on American railroads in the not-distant futiivc. With such speeds, the grade crossing will be far more dangemus than it is now. It would not he ;i bad idea to ijiend a iy>w\ sum of money on the :job of eliminating it. impression lhat the government, in ' keeping them there, wns .devoting at least a purl of Us attention' io the possibility of trouble with Japan. Furthermore, the Japanese themselves got this impression. Our concentration off California certainly did nothing lo relieve the of the relations between the two nations. If the llrel is coming back lo 'Ihc Atlantic, it can only mean that Washington has good reason for believing we arc going to remain at peace with Japan. Ami, by tlie same token, the. fleet's presence in the Atlantic ought' to remove from Japanese minds a reason for suspicion and hostility.

For one reason ur another, most of us got the notion that the (.i-mmnnist was a douii fanatical, intensely serious chap who wore bushy whiskers, was careless of his attire, I'nnviux! portentously and went about always as if Iht hist trumpet had sounded and he found himself among the gnats instead of the sheep. This Lilvinnii', however, seems to be something else again. He is not exactly a dandy, but lie is careful of h'is dress, lie smiles frcyur-itly, evinces a child-like freshness of interest in tilings, joke.-; with reporters, beams upon the world at large--and, in fact, wins from feminine newspaper readers the adjective, "cute." He doesn't, somehow, [i'l the bill. A Communist diplomat ought not to be getting quite so much fun out of life. CHURCH EXGSUES CHURCH CHRISTMAS SEALS HED CROSS If we give It an opportunity tlie church fills our spiritual needs. The church stands today as yesterday n monument to this need. The Red Cross stands ns a monument lo man's love as taught by Jesus for those made helpless by disaster. Christmas Seals stand as a monument to man's desire to minister unto those who are sick, for Jesus said: "For I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: naked, and ye clothed me: I was eick and ye visited me." Let us remember: Attend and support the chinch— Itt us support -tile Red Cross, that the hungry mny be fcl and the naked clothed—let us buy liberally of the Christmas Seals, that the sick may be visited and cared for.

The rest of the body was brown, ^hading from rich cafc-au- liiit on the back to creamy ivory the chest. A rat? Yes. Bannister knew it was now. The masked face maile it look rather like a monkey or a raccnpn lint It was a cat all rlglil.

Bannlsler. turned, giving his attention once more- to tho Interior of the bedroom. It must have been rather unlidy even be-foro tho detectives had mads their search. There seemed to be BO much In Ihe room: a bed; a. chest ot drawers —several of them nulled out and spilling their contents: two chairs, ono of white leather ot modernistic design; a .night table holding a carafe and empty glass: a ward robe trunk tilted on end; a smal radio. Golf clubs sprawled In ono corner. Tber<» was a stack of music on the radiator and a pila of mag azines on the floor. There seemed lo be ever so many smaller articles in tho room,.too — brushes and toilet articles on top ot the chest ot drawers; a large mirror above it; a photograph in a silver frame showing.a pretty girl smiling — Denlso Lang; a cocktail shaker on Ihe trunk; .a sweater and suit of clothes hanging across the back ot ono ot the chairs. Oa tbo wall Bannister noted a large framed photograph "of-Tracy King himself. Tltcro were, some others wlilch Baiinlsler assumed to bo thealri- cal acqualnlances. One ho recognized as a 'Broadway slar. Most of these photographs had inscriptions written across one corner. Yes, tlio place was cc-rtaiuly chaotic.
