After the War The good will of those who insist , upon immediate-formulation of detailed , post-war plans should not; bo 'qiiestion- cd,' Their strategic wisdom and their sense of.timing, however, are not above reproach. It might well prove that they were shorter sighted than those \vho want to let well enough, alone for the time being. There is one thing, and only one thing, upon which Americans, liritish, Russians, Chinese and our allies are unanimous-thai Germany and Japan must be beaten. Upon one further point we are so nearly unanimous that no dangerous differences can arise—that 'Germany and Japan must be annihilated as military powers. Beyond these fundamentals, there are ' differences among the United Nations and differences among the peoples of ' each nation. If idealists insist upon forcing the issue, they can create internal bitternesses among and w.ithin any or all of the great anti-axis peoples that might be of very practical help to llitlcr and Tlirohito. : *•*.-*'. In our own country, among utterly loyal Americans, sentiment ranges - - from those who advocate a United ~ ' ' States of the World to those who hope -- a that we can perfect a self-contained T - economy and thenceforward write the Z~'J"-- rest of the world out of our books. "" \ • Both, in' our opinion, are unsound in their extremism. But in between' them are millions on either side of an imag- •i'nary line dividing "isolationism" from • '"internationalism." . . ' , ..The idealists believe that under pressure of the emergency, stimulated by the necessity for national unity, they can put across agreements which would be impossible when the war has been uon. It is entirely possible that, instead, they may provoke a die-hard opposition, that will divert attention and energy from the one thing of supreme importance—the winning of the war. ; * * * This danger is inherent not only in connection with international planning, with consideration of relief, rehabilitation, a 1045'version of the League of Nations, creation of an international police force. It is inherent in such things as the Delano Plan, urging internal social security provisions without any knowledge whether and how they can be effectuated. With perhaps a dozen major war problems still unsolved and, for practical purposes, untackled, isn't this a good time to concentrate upon winning the war while democracy still is .solvent in money and in virile manpower? Davis broadcast, fiend with care in the; light of Tuffs charge that it is propaganda, the Davis talk still'seems an innocuous, instructive, intelligent roundup of what is happening. Attacks like this create an impression that iho critic is playing a game of petty partisanship. There are many things about tlic administration's conduct of the war that fairly shriek for intelligent criticism. There is no need for any senator to waste his and our lime, shooting at phantoms. Lion's Stand-in- Most women will, sympathize with Mrs. Holly Phillips in her desire for a divorce. It docs not seem unreasonable for a pretty bride of less than a year io object because her husband frankly admires a HiO-pound lion cub more than be docs her. Felix, the lion, died soon after Mrs. Phillips gave up and lefl home. SI ill .she won't go back. Apparently it. was not just Felix Leo (hat her husband loved more than her—it was animals in general. And Mrs. Phillips declares thai she will nol be "a stand-in for a lion." It all is happening-in Los Angeles, a suburb of Hollywood.

(UP) —Rather than be denied service In the*war, because of his 68 years of.age, Dr. Philip S. Potter, famous author on and college professor of pediatrics, i gave up his rank as colonel in'ihe Army Medical Reserve Corps and accepted . the bars of a '. lieutenant iit the California Quartermaster Depot here. He served In Wtirld War I. as an Army surgeon. His father was on the staff of Gen. Phil Sheridan. NEXT: Dinosaurs never heard of food rationing. In Hollywood 11L EKSKINK JOHNSON Hollyopd nightmare: The producer stood In line for three hours al the FCM (Federal Ousting Mnr- kel). He gripped his ration book tightly, ami us he reached the counter lie asked. "What's the quotation on Betty Orable?" The Civil Service clerk waved an impatient arm at the black- bonrd behind him. "you can reart can't you?" Tlie producer read and almost wept. "Sixty points for Grablcl That's robbery!" "Don't blame me, brother. 1 don't mark 'cm. I just sell 'cm." "Bui Carson's going at 30, and she just won the Acad— "Sorry. It fluctuates from day to day, yon know. If you don't wnnt to buy, move on. Next!" Grudgingly, the producer gave up his place at the counter. He needed time to think. Sixty points —vvhc'.v! Why, if he budgeted thnt juany points.for Grable, how could he afford a good leading man? He returne dto his office and called the bookkeeping department. "Look. boss," whispered an aide with a pencil behind his car. "I know where you can get some glamoi trial will make Griiblc look like—' "The black the producer. market?" scrcnmei "What do you wnnt Out Our Way By J. R.

"Wait," suggested another expert. "Forget Grable. I just fig ured we can get Dunne and Boyei BOTH for 56 points."

I'm going back to the FCM." TRY AGAIN The producer stood in line snd finally reached the counter. "I'll lake Dunn and Boyer," he ordered, laying exactly 5li coupons on the line. "Uli-iih," said the clerk. Tlie boy at the board was erasing the quotations after the names of the two stars and substituting figures that totaled 107. The producer swayed'dizzily on his feet. But ah! He noticed suddenly that Grable \vrts now down to 25- "Glminic Grable instead," he shouted, handing over the coupons. Desperately the producer said, "now glmmic Don Ameche." But he turned pale as he saw that the quotation on the star stood al 72. "never mind." he choked and with- i drew from the line again to think. "Psstl" said a voice in his ear, and he turned to find Sam Goldwyn standing beside him. "Some of us boys are getting up n little game at Solznlck's place," said Sam. "Bring your ration book." SPEND TI1KUT Next morning he was back al the counter, his pockets bulging with coupons. "Today I am a plunger," he announced, and bought Ameche, bamour, Bud Abbott and Lou Coslello. He figured thnt these, together with n couple of talented youngsters from his Victory Garden, would make a whale of a cast. Bill a bitter blow awaited him at the office. 'flic Treasury Department had telephoned to say that all five of his Slavs had already earned the salary Hml'. for the year. Tiicy couldn't accept another penny. IN THE .SPOTLIGHT CHAPTER. XVIII' "CTAND BACK, PEOPLE! . . . •^ BACK, PLEASE! . . . GIVE THE LITTLE LADY ROOM! . . . BACK, EVERYBODY!" The mayor of -Phoenix. Ariz., never one to miss a stH/Jig'nt, was assuming full command here now. He had ridden up to the golden sailplane on a horse, with a retinue ot horsemen beiiiml him. The retinue was, in truth, the sheriff of Maricopa county and his mounted possemcn, a group of 40 prominent Arizona horsemen who functioned mainly at public receptions like this. It was a picturesque touch of the old west thus to have fine horses and costumed riders welcome the transcontinental sailplane. The mechanics faded back. So did the Army men. After all, this entire sailplane junket was for the civilian public. A demonstration of what gliding and soaring can lie expected to do. His Honor the mayor had doffed his JO-gallon hat, and he was beaming. Sheriff Jordan nnd his men formed their horses beside the plane. This was perfect for the ncwsrcel men and the newspaper photographers. The little ceremony, too, was enough to quiet down the,cheering crowd. Especially when Chief Wipala Wicki, magnificently costumed Hop! Indian, strode forward with R huge bouquet of flowers for the lady in the plane. It was at this moment that Capt. Jimmy Carr turned to his passenger, for the first lime since landing. He had been engulfed in the initial confusion here. "Loraine, you must be as gra- Jimmy's mouth had' dropped open, but when Ed signaled, he kept qujet. By this time anyway, Chief Wipala was rumbling some words. The' chief extended. roses. Automatically, Pat stood up fo receive them. ' "Th-lhahk you:' 1 she managed. Then she. inhaled deeply, caught big Ed's eye, glanced fearfully at Jimmy Carr — and pitched in. "Thank you, so much!" she repealed, very loud. "I-—as a representative of—of the women o( America—I accept these roses—" she looked at Ed again, shaking literally in her shoes. Ed nodded, emphatically. "I accept these roses as your expression of friendship. H is a pleasure to be in Arizona. We want to slay as long as we can. We—Captain Carr and 1 bring you cordial greetings from the people ot the eastern states, and together; we pledge our cooperation in making the soaring carnival a.success." * * * CHE might have said more, but . some exuberant fellow shouted, "When are you and the captain going to be married, Miss Stuart?" ic shouted at Pat. "Oh!" Pat gasped it. But Jimmy, across from the mayor, had heard, too. •Whoo-pee, E-YEOW!" Next moment a cowboy shot oft his pistol, and the crowd was in hilarious eruption all around. "Pat!" exclaimed Jimmy Carr. 'Pat .' . . You—" "J-Jimmyl . . . Oh!" "How in the world did you get in here? In this plane?" "Ed Bryan put me here! He stuck me in, just as you landed. The crowd was so cxciled, nobody but—" Where's Loraine?" . 'I don't know!" 'But Pat—my lord!". 'Ed look her awoyl" 'Stick with me, Pat. . . . Stand She looked fearfully across . at him, and he smiled broadly and \ answered the young man. '.'No personal news," Jimmy, said. "Many thanks. Just soy that, the lady and I desire only to emphasize the importance of soaring. -We believe'glidcrs and sailplanes'can change Ihe entire American.way of life'." - ''•'..' "Yes!" Pat chimed in. "Almost anyone can operate a sailplane after a few weeks of training. And they need cost only $200 or so each. Soaring! It's the coming thing in travel!" Jimmy edged his horse over next to Pat's, so he could lean close to her ear. "You're a brick, Patsy, honest you are! We'll talk this other thing out later, but keep up the front now!" "Yes, Jimmy," she whispered back. "Any—any hint of scandal, or mixup, might wreck ihe whole soaring flight. Do a great deal of liarm. Thai's why I phoned Ed Bryan to bring you back. I knew I could trust him, but he was more clever than I hoped. Stay alert, Pal! Tonight in tlie hotel Famine has Infested India more than any other country in all hls- tory. - ... . cious HEY! to these people Pat!" as—hey! by!" Pat Friday, silting back there in a veritable daze, could only slave helplessly at him. But off to one side rose a. slcntorihn voice. "WELCOME TO ARIZONA, CAPTAIN CARR!" roared big Ed Bryan. . . Jimmy turned, saw his friend. Bewilderment shone on Jim, and he glanced quickly at Pat again. "AND WELCOME TO THE YOUNG LADY PASSENGER, TOO!" Ed bellowed, ci v '»g Jimmy the.high sign. This welcoming speech was all extra-curricular. Nol planned by the reception convmilloc at all. Later, some newspaper reported lhat a stranger made spontaneous - outburst in token of the crowd's enthusiasm. Which was at least partly.-kua, Tltey were being separated rtow, out ot the plane. "Of course, Jimmy!" she yelled al him. "Of course!" Tlie substitution, of.Pal. Friday was never known to those nol per sonally concerned, because E< Bryan had engineered it so adroit ly. And Pat's appearance, he speech, was accepted quite nat urally by the publie because thcr was the same pretty girl whos pholographs had been in the loca papers today. This was Ihe pas scnger who started yesterday fron Elmira, who was with Caplai Carr in Cleveland and Chicago The public had no cause for sus picionl Pat suddenly found herself m hand-tooled, silver studded sad die, high on a white horse belwee the sheriff nnd the mayor.

The Arizona sun was about fo drop behind the distant mountains, but right now it made theatrical lighting for the grand show here on Sky Harbor field. Only two people ot the 10,000 or so present wore not striving to crowd up as close as possible, 'hey were Ed Bryan, airplane plot, and n blond young lady whom e held lightly by the wrist. He escorted hci off to one side oward the main passenger station icre at Sky Harbor. Then, he Hilled her into partial privacy be- \ind a clump of palm trees. "Before I turn you'loose I got -\ thing to say," Ed began. "You •saw what I done, Mifs Stuart. You're blazing in the eyes now. But okay, okay; you just blaze— . and keep quiet. If you wanta be so free with forging Army orders and poinling pistols around—" He never quite finished. He just clamped his lips shut, glared straight Into her eyes. And for good mtasure he significantly patted his own bolstered gun. - v .(To Be Continue*). _,
