Business Becomes Realistic The American Business Congress, through its Post-War Economic Planning Committee, has put forth just about the most realistic analysis of the rehabilitation problem we have-yet seen. It minces no words in pointing out'that Business, as such, is going to decide whether this nation shall retain the free enterprise system or shall adopt some form of state socialism. There will be about 20,000,000 'demobilized soldiers, sailors, marines, coast guardsmen, merchant mariners and war workers for whom industry and-comntcrce must provide jobs. Government is obligated to co-operate with business, but the prime responsibility does not rest with government. It rests with business. The committee "by preponderant vote" believes that "a job is due every man and .woman who wants to work." This is tite very essence of the American philosophy. The world does not owe anybody a living, but it does owe everybody the opportunity to 1 earn a living. This war will icnd leaving a IHige volume of civilian wants.and needs. There will be an enormous reservoir of savings with which to pay for the things we haven't been able to buy for some time. There will be also n tremendous plant in which to employ workers to produce needed commodities. But, as the committee points out, low wartime.profits and high taxation, carried over into peacetime-.becjUisQ.of • the lowering debt now being" built up, will leave business with relatively little working capital. Business must take the leadership in solving problems created by these con- i ditions. If government assumes, that responsibility, then government will become business, and we shall have state socialism in one form or another. The Now Deal reform program was made possible, these business men 'con- Cede, because for years business defaulted in its obligations to Society. Further default would tend to build up stronger govcnimest at the expense of business. * ' * * -"-' ,,' A . si £ nific '' 11 i t: aspect of this report is it comes, with virtual unanimity, ^Isi^'A heterogeneous committee that of national note, r, leaders, well-known farmer rcprc- -^-TJ,,,.^;^-,-.-..-!!! is an excellent cross-settiofi^flihe nation. The leadership oMuch a group could contribute greatly to Having the American way ,,f life in the trying era of postwar reconstruction. Japan Isn't looting The Japanese spokesman who warned that his nation will give assistance lo the axis, when we invade Europe, was not kidding. He was merely talking ambiguously. He did not mean that Niptwlic&e infantry, liuik units nnd Dyers will fight Ride by side with Cermans, Italians and satellite troops, in all probability. What he undoubtedly meant was that the moment we cast the die in Europe, and commit ourselves, to an invasion on which the fate of our civilization depends, Japan will strike vigorously , and effectively in the Orient. Her preparations are made, her striking forces arc in position, The crisis of the war on both global fronts must be met simultaneously, This is no time for phony optimism. This is the time to recognize (hat the bloodiest days of this bloodiest war arc just ahead, and to prepare ourselves accordingly. Global Time One eventual outcome of this war might bo what Western Air Lines, adopting the 2'1-hour clock, calls "global lime." This is the logical system in use already by the tinned Hwvices and Pan American air Hues, which starts at I o'clock and winds up with 2'! o'clock. Changeover to the system would have both advantages and disadvantages. One of the former i.s that if, would do away with Ihe major difficulty in read- Ing transportation timetables. There would be no more dark face for p. m. and light face for a. m. An hour after midnight would be 1 o'clock, while nn hour afler noon would bo 13 o'clock. Itafy Won't Berlin says that Rome newspapers . Imvc suggested tlint captured American nnil British airmen bu executed, in Japanese fashion, in reprisal for a mid in which they participated against a suburb of Home. This is just talk. The Italians are "•made of different .stuff than the Japs. They arc fundamentally civiliml. They have a sense of justice. And—unlike the Japs—they would be deterred by concern about the welfare of their men who are our prisoners. • SO THEY SAY The family ivlth nil income of $40 n week which goes on spending $45 week after week will fall apart sooner or later cither In the di- .vorce courts or by sonic other means. The same llilny holds true In war production: the allowable demands must not exceiil the supply.—WPB Vice chairman William L. Bntt. * * » Increases In wages and in farm prices can only mean further rise in the cost of living. \Vlml will it profit workers to hnvc more dollars if it tnkes nil those extra dollars, and perhaps more, to Iced and clothe ihelr families?—OPA Administrator Prcnti.w M, Brown. Another two or three powerful blows from the west find cast are needed, such as thnt dealt in tile past five or six months, for the catastrophe of Hitlerite Germany lo become mi accomplished fuct.— ,loscf Stalin. We are In the presence of changes as great as the change from barbarism to feudalism in the llth century. Tlie new civilization must center mound fellowship, not around competition -Sir Richard T. D. AcU.nd. rounder British Common Wealth party. H Is perfectly obvious we can hot preserve capitalism mid American democracy without dvlng full employment with reasonable wa.-es and reasonable Hopes for artvnncc.Heiu.-c of C.

BARRY FIELDING WINS CHAPTER XXX |>ARRY was never to forget that dawn. If Rcnaldo got him aboard that small boat, this would be his last dawn in a friendly country , . . his last sight of Allison. She looked very small and very dear, crouched beside him on the log, her pointed chin sunk into her hand, her eyes brooding ove. the shoreline, where a score of Indians rushed to'Rehaldo's orders. Her cropped hair was a bright tousled halo. ' Barry felt suddenly, for no reason, reckless and happy, "Allison," he grinned down at her. "Do yon mind a personal question?" "Why ask now?" she retorted morosely. "You've been shooting them at me for years." "Are—were you in love with Ilenaldo?" She frowned. "Tlie beast," she cried viciously. Then she considered the question fairly. 'Wo," she reported, turning to smile at Barry. "Thank goodness I "wasn't. Hut I did think he was romantic and handsome and very nice. I was a moron." Barry felt happier and more reckless. "You wouldn't fall in love with me, would you?" he hazarded. "I certninjy would not," she snapped. "Not if I had the choice. You're too stubborn." She kicked her boot into the sand at her leet angrily. "Of course I didn't have the choice," she added under her breath. "I was in love with you one deep breath after I met you— as any fool could plainly see." "I couldn't," said Barry. "But," she flared, "I'm not without a certain coda of honor even in the jungle. As soon as I get you out of this going-away-on- thal-boat business, I'm sending you back to Lila." "Thai's big of you," Barry grinned, "but it'll bo harj. Lila started for Puerto Barrios this mom ing." » * * 'JWE Quiche guard's stolid gaze fallered as he watched his prisoners kiss. He had thought the while woman belonged !o the Spaniard. Wilh a sigh of relief, «c noted that Rcnaldo himself was striding towards, them from the beach. "llic quicksilver is aboard," he said shortly. "The boat will leave shortly after sunset. There is no point in our slaying here longer." He looked nl Allison. Khc said quickly, "I won't go back wild you." The Spaniard's face was set, but *e cords in his neck swelled. 'You won't go with him," he retorted. Then his voice grew coolly formal. "Yon have everything lo lose and nothing to gain by resisting, Miss Topping. I drew up your .father's will. In case of your death, I inherit the plantation." "Boy, what you couldn't have done in Chicago," Barry murmured sarcastically. "Some day," fienaldo's voice ;oftened ns his dark gaze fixed on Allison, "we will be rulers o£ this country, you and I. Then you will thank me." He ordered the Indian to slash the rope that tied Allison's and Barry's wrists to- jelher. Allison glowered at him through ilenclied teclh. "I can see myself thanking you," she said. As (ho Indian's knife severed the rope, with nn expert nick, Barry's memory flashed backward. He turned to Hcnaldo, his eyes gleaming with suspicion. "You said you hadn't seen Hall," he said. "But you had. You kepi him from gelling lo the Moncha Suma and this private graft of yours. And you sent Indians up the const to stop any more intruders bound lor Quiche country, didn't you?" "That Indian who attacked you on the boat at Santiago!" cried Allison, nghasf. The thin smilo that played over Renalrto's thin lins was crafty. He shrugged. "I am resourceful when my interests are jeopardized," he nun-mured. He nodded to the Indian beside them. "Take the prisoner to the boat," 'No!" Allison's cry rang out furious and desperate. But before the Indian had readied Barry, Kenaldo's voice cracked out again. Its swaggering smoothness was abruptly-gonc. There was a sharp note of anxiety in it. 'You found Hall at the hidden shack? .Where is he now?" Barry grinned mockingly. 'Wouldn't you liko to know?" he taunted. A dark shadow o£ fear crossed Renaldo's face. "Ho went to Moncha Suma!" Turning \vilh nervous haste, .he gave an Indian call. "TWE Quiche Indians at tlie beach A started toward them at a trot. The jutting promontory cut them from view momentarily. When they did not come around It, Renaldo called again. His voice echoed back from the cliff. / After several minutes, h» slid his- gun from his holster nnd waved Barry and Allison, before him. V T)>8 four of them walked along the shoreline through the orilliant mist of the sunrise air. They rounded the promontorjr with breathless curiosity. '•. Before them in the narrow divine that wound down to the sta was a.weird tableau! ,: A hundred feet in front of>« luddled group of mules, Mohcll» Suma stood lall and thunderous! Only Hall and Tony were besW* urn. But before him—flat ;6'n :heir faces in the damp sand— ,vere Renaldo t 's Quiche workers!' "Get up!" Eenaldo's command brought the dazed Quiches automatically to their feet. "Fitly silver pesos for bringing the Moncha Suma to me!" he cried. ;'••:'•: Allison moaned. Hall was glowering but weaponless. Tony's handl was on his knife but he lookid hopelessly outnumbered by the> score of Quiches. There was only' one weapon among the three. That iveapon was Moncha Suma's black eyes. They bored into the oncoming line of rebel Quiches like fiery, flashing arrows. The line faltered. "Go on!" Renaldo shouted. "He'll kill you if you don't!" The relentless fire of the chief* eyes blazed more Hypnotically. His voice rang out in the strained silence in a mesmeric icy mono- lone. "You are dead men now. You have broken the oath ot -hichicastenango." "That's rubbish," Renalda shouted. "GO on! Go on!" The Quiche rebels staggered on for several paces, like men bewitched. Then, despite Rensldd's angry commands, they stumbled one by one, and dropped into ths sand, bodies Iwitching, lips mOV-- ing. Renaldo cursed them bitterly,, then lapsed into silence. Barry glanced back in quick ip- prehension. He saw the Spaniard's gun turning slowly from him toward Moncha Suma, Thtr« was no time for warning. He leaped baekl Allison's scream rang above th« gun's report. * » • TTALL' and Barry were knetllni, •"• tying the last knot in the top* binding Renaldo's wrists whtn Allison's tear-stained check pmtcd for A moment against Barry's.
