The publication PM, which 'maintains intimate contact with many of the leftist elements in Washington, .prints what, il says, will be the elc- ,'ments of standardization. They arc: . /'Elimination of brand names on all, •'"Elimination of trade marks. : ; "Ruthless curtailment of varieties in ;all products. • "Standard grades and styles in very limited numbers. .-"Standard prices. - <PM's article begins to lay Hie groundwork for a publicity campaign which will endeavor to put across this plau- iried. economy. The keynote, as you ;mus't have guessed, will ho the charge ! that, all opposition is based upon sulf- 'is'H/^coiiomic motives and plays into ' the i; liands'of (.he axis. ,'• IVeVhave no doubt at all that the plaijr^-hettB'r-world shock troops in ;5£aj3^i.n!;toiv\yho'for years have been ' tryiflg to kili\ brand names and trade marks by every stratagem, arc preparing; such pvopQ^als'and will try to foist'' ;- them ^ifpoiv'Mr. 'Byrnes. . /"JKnQwiiig. .quite a bit ab'oul publicity ' melhorts,'wet.huve no doubt thai .this , story :is a trial balloon designed'to lest th,C'^strength, the' alertness^ the. skill i'3BJI.~iife'j£?. < i.Mfi. 11 .' -°f ."19 opposition lo i unnecessary • ideological' phases of this : 'program) Tyliich'arc:'the"two first eiuim- i If those proposals ever reach the •oper jvfcjshal oppose them. : We shall egress "our"' opposition regardless of Tlwre Was a Better Way , In all the comment about Warner Brothers' propaganda film, '"Mission to Moscow," none that we have seen strikes closer to the heart of the blunder than an editorial in the Saturday Review of Literature which was initialed by the editor, Norman Cousins. Afler discussing, the film's terrible mangling both of the original book and of history, and pointing out that this was particularly undesirable because of the semi-official status enjoyed by the film, Mr. Cousins notes the most harmful feature of the producers' en or. 'flic film, as it stands, he .says, con- slitules an unfounded confession that there is no common ground for understanding between (he United Stales and Soviet Russia, and therefore thai if was necessary to fabricate a common ground by presenting a picture of Russia so false lhat "the whole thing would be ^laughable if it weren't so tragic." But in fad, I here arc ample grounds for mutual respect and friendship which could have been stressed. We are fighting in a common cause, in which the Soviet is making a marvelous showing. "If you want a motion picture thai will help Americans to admire the Russian people, let them see what is happening in Russia today," says Mr. Cousins. : * • » "Russia has nol been a democracy in the |)!isl. Kill docs anyone think thai (lie millions of Russian people who have had to go through such a hell on earth as has never been seen in order to save their country from destruction 1 '. . . can be kepi from the right to vote after the war? Or the right lo make themselves heard? "Whether we like it or not; whether the Soviet leaders like it or not, the march of progress toward democratic organization is on in Russia." The sponsors of Ibi.s unfortunate film made the same blunder lhal others have made. They failed to discriminate between the American reaction to Russian heroism, the American appreciation of how'inuch we. are profiling from what Russia is doing to Hitler—and . our intense dislike for the Ireacher- ...otis- tactics of the Communist party.'as : -agent for the now ostensibly defunct Comintern, in this country." Understanding and friendship never can be founded firmly on lies, half- truths, distortions and' suppressions.

Mnllison's cottage looked very peaceful and cozy. I knocked a couple of times and when v Maltison didn't come, I opened the unlatched screen door, crossed Ihc ix>rch and called into Ihc living room: "Mr. Matlison— Mr. Maltison." He didn't ans'vcr. But surely he wasn't far away or he wouldn't have left the radio playing. I went in and sat down to wait for him. The Co'.lage fireplace is fashioned out of rough field stone. H is rugged nnrt picturesque and a couple of niches arc built in each side lo contain bric-a-brac. It annoyed me to sec thai the niches were bare; a woman would have filled them wilh books or gay pot- fery. Harriet had. And lhat reminded me thai Ihc flat stone in the bottom of one of the niche; was loose. There was «i small cnv- ity uiKicrnealh it. We had had a joking habit of leaving notes then for Waller and Harriet in the ok days. That came back lo me nov like a flash of sheer inspiration and the next moment I was look ing cautiously around lo see i Clint Mallison was yet in sight. ; + * * T HEARD his footsteps on th porch an<J then his form loomct black in the doorway. "I hope you don't mind my mak ing myself at home," I said. \vanled to sec you so I jusl cam in and waited." "Of course not," he said hoartil. lie crossed the room with Ion strides, took his pipe, out of h mouth, laid it on the mantel an sal down in the chair across II hearlh from me. He didn't glanc once at the niche in the stor mantel wall where I had jusl lii( den Derek's wallet. The mono and Kathy's ring were still in I would have removed them if, . hadn't been so Uuiriei Mallison smiled wryly. "I sup- you've conic for my report?" For a moment I didn't under- ind. He went on. "I'm afraid the ily progress I've made is rather crsonal. I've just persuaded your antldiiiighter thai she ought to i fishing with me tomorrow owing." "Oh—report," I laughed and got y breath back. "On the con- nry, I've just come to ask you i forget all about my reciuest of ist nighl. You sec, I was being very silly old woman. I knew iy dnughter-in-lnw hart seen the lurdcrcd man—talked to him, I ncnn—and I was afraid if the po- ce found that out it would look ad for her." Trying lo^ look as innocent as baby, 1 prattled on: "But, as ou know, it wns proved that she ad no connection with the man', eath, mid so ..." I shrugged loquenlly. Maltison looked at me rather ;uizzicnlly. I rose lo my feel. "Well, that's :11." If is quizzical look resolved inti vords. "You mean, you don' vnnt to know who killed Derek Grady?" "i didn't say anything of Uv ind. I'm simply not concernec •my more," I said tartly. I move oward the door. He followed me :iis words had riled me. "Yo might remember, loo, that m randdaughlcr is engaged," I adde nastily. He stared over my head at th lake. "I wish I could forget il," h T WALKED fast because I •*- furious. I had been peeve by Mattison's penetrating reniar about my not wanting to kno who killed Derek Grady. And : I had mentioned Kathy's ongagi merit to give him something worry about. Bui he might wot dcr why she wore no ring. 1 uiight even ask her about it,. Kiithy came running out the udy door as I reached the ter- ce. She reached out her< hands me as, she had when she was child and needed help. "Gram, where have you been?" question she was to ask ma tor in a far more tragic moment. Margaret's having hysterics. It's -terrible." ' .' • Hysterics aren't a pretty sight yen when a neurotic woman has hem, but seeing Margaret, who ad been one o£ the staid arid firm ulwarks of our lives, go. to pieces '.-is as devastating as being caught n an earthquake. I sent Kathy to phone for a doc- or and hurried into the bathroom 0 wet some towels in cold water, laid them on Margaret's head. i. seemed a long time before the octor came. lie gave her a hypo- crmic. She relaxed slowly arid cr sobs became a moaning. "She'll go to sleep now," the octor said looking down at her. If she wakes and shows any signs if returning hysteria, give her a ouplc of these. Repeat every two lours if necessary." He had opened his medicinft Case vhile he spoke. He took out a bot- le of while pills, poured ten or Avelve of them into his palm, put hem into a small envelope and landed it to me. I put it on the light table beside Margaret's bed. Margaret did go to sle«p and was still asleep at bedtime when 1 slipped into her room to see il she was all right. I stood for a moment looking at her. Even in sleep her face was sorrowful, and she seemed to have grown tinier these last few days. She made a pathetically^ small hump'beneath the quilt. '; I went to bed and to spile of my v l»arried thoughts. But not soundly!' Time after time my subconscious fears broke through in frightening dreams and woke me tip. . That was how I happened to hear Margaret. ,<To Be Contlased); j«.
