U. S. Had Conscience as-Dollar Diplomat There may not seem lo be much connection between >\ crowd of angry U. S. marines wrecking a ncw.sjMnier office in Nicaragua and ;» calm discussion of the problem of imperialism in the modern work!. But a cablegram from Central America linked (lie two very neatly, {lie other day, and provided a little nourishing food for thought. Away back in 1922, or thereabout!;, oiii' marine;; were .stationed in Nicara- i;ua. A stout Nicaragua", patriot, Dr. Buitrago Diaz, objected bitterly. In his newspaper, the Tribuna, at Managua, he put the marines on the pan and said. contemptuously that they were unfit for the compaionship of the women of Nicaragua. Some of the marines could road Spanish. So one day a bunch of the lads got together and made a raid on tin; Tribima's offices, wcckhif;- them with a hearty thoroughness such as only infuriated marines can achieve. And the wimt-up of the story came just the other day, when a United States Treasury check covering the damages was handed to Dr. Diaz. Welt, so what? Does that prove anything in particular, except that Uncle Sam does pay his bills if you give him time enough? Yen can appreciate the story bust if you • reflect on the thing:; that have been saitl r about America's land-grabbing exploits. \ , -i In the., last few .years Americans ; have waked indignant about Mussolini's soirare of Ethiopia, Japan's attack on China, and so on—and have been told that they had no right lo throw stones because Uncle Sam himself expanded his territorial holdings by force, with Latin-Americans, [n• iliahs and other luckless people paying the freight. But there is a little difference there, somehow, and this Nicaragua)! story does illustrate il. Clumsily, often tardily, generally somewhat inadequately, this country has made an effort to redress the balance. The marines arc out of Nicaragua now, the country is free and in- ' dependent—and even a minor bit of "aggression" like the mob scene in the newspaper office is at last paid for by the U. S. Treasury. Mexico did get the cash of the Gadsdcn purchase—and l\\- 0 decades later, got the French lifted off her .OUTOUBWAY neck by orders from Washington. Spain did get a lump sum for the Philippines, and Cuba actually did go free. The government has spent some millions of dollars caring for the dis- possed Indians. Alaska was acquired by straight purchase. The old mtirines- have-landed vra of "dollar diplomacy" did linally end. That record could be a great deal belter—but it could also be a great deal worse. It is not exactly {ho sort of record a greedy and ruthless people would mate. Creed is in if, of course—but il is lem|(cr«l by conscience, after all. Foreign militarists engaged in stealing the lands of weaker ]>eopks will have to look a little further to liml justification for their actions. Still In Tlie K<>d The dJIIiciillicH which meet an administration that tries to balance its budget in a time of increasing industrial stagnation are amply illustrated by the announcement at Washington that :i ?2;i,000,l)00-a-monlh increase jn WI'A spending )ms been ordered, lo cope with unemployment. Twenty-three millions a month constitute heavy spending, even in a government like ours. Since relief expenditures have boon one of the main reasons for the unbalanced budget, it is hard to see l\ow the budget-balancing act is going to bo accomplished when relief costs arc gping up ut that rale. Vet what is (o be done? The need exists. Unemployment is indisputably on the rise. Something has to be done, and the federal government is the only agency that can do it. In the long run, a balanced budget must wait on full business revival. Until that revival comes, government accountants will have to keep the jug of red ink handy. Ready For Trouble The United Stales air force is "one of the biggest and possibly the most efficient" air force in existence, go says that famous British authority, "Jane's All the World's Aircraft," an annual publication which reviews national air forces each year. This British authority, incidentally, is pulled by America's big air fleet. It points onl that America is isolated and safe, with nothing to fear from any enemy close enough lo do any damage. Why, it asks, should the American people spend money for such a powerful weapon? The answer to that one is easy: just in case, brother—just in case. This country is going to keep out of trouble if il can; but it doesn't mind having the world know thai if trouble should come the country is perfectly well able to handle il. Tno warring philosophies, the reason and j-c- rciiUy of Goethe mid the emotional miliUnism el Adolf Hitler, have put the soul of the world in jeopardy.—Dr. Abratn Leon Siicher, university of Illinois.

He didn't worry much until the third clay, in fact. He had the rather vague note that Bob had left. Honey Bee assured him that Dob and 'Lissa had departed in Hie direction opposite Hie cliff, Thc main worry for Hades was thc fad that the absent ones had not token their horses. Where could they be going on foot, for so long? There wasn't anywhere to go, that he could figure. Furthermore, why couldn't he find their trail? Two days had passed before he thought to look lor tracks, and wind had blown considerably in the meantime. Hades once was an expert trailer, but blowing dry sand soon erases tracks und a trailer is forced lo delect such difficult signs as broken grass, shoe on rocks, bent wigs in This is very hard to do in marks brush. desert regions, lla'cies circlcd'the camp a half mile cr so out, but he could pick up no likely signs.

"I wish J could say," Ihe Indian girl etc dared, truthfully. "Waal, we better climb up Ihore'n look. They mighta got hurl or something." Hades leaned buck lo stare ill the high cliff castle. ScoU Holliman had squatted, cowboy fashion, within hearing of this conversation, and now he took part lw Ihe first lime. "Ain't you already been up there, cookie? Didn't I see you up on them ladders last night?" llolliman addressed Honey Bee. The girl nodded.- She had indeed gone up. Mcsl of the way bul not quite all. She had been mooning about the matter, meditating over the absence of Ihc man she loved. 'The thought of his taking her rival angered her in Ihe (irsl place, and his prolonged absence with 'Lissa was beginning to u'rive Honey Bee into brooding jealousy. But Bob had commanded her to silcncu about the new cave, liu was her man, she must obey. She had thought of all these things as she climbed. She had faith in his ability to take care of himself — vhat harm could befall a grown man and woman, adequately equipped with water, food, a lantern, spare candles, everything? She had no belief in "ghosts" and such yarns. And she had an Indian's patience; she could wait. "Waal, ef you already been up there to look, that settles (hat " Hades ruled. "They've slipped off some'ers." He shook his old head confused at (lie strange turn of events. * * « J-TOLLIMAN went on willi thc work he was hired to do, building first permanent pole frames lor the tents, making tables, chairs, a fireplace, then assisting Hades Jones to build a corral. He was a plodder type unless something stimulated him into extraneous action. He did talk once to Honey Bee Girl about his deal with her concerning Mary Melissa.
