Thciv instructors, we are told, picked out the most beautiful, intelligent, arid resourceful young women to attend the school. ' Here are little (;irls — girls who ought to be learning how to cook, and keep house, and prepare themselves for a full and happy life— being taught Hie intricacies of deception, intrigue, and espionage. And probably they're thrilled at the prospect. ...... Heroism In Scot/Vine/ Tlie Scotch it appears, are. not only thrifty, but 'brave. Over in Aberdeen the other day the Kill Society, .in a momentous session, barred (ho Scottish national dress to wbmcn because women's legs from U'.c knee to the ankle arc not so prop^i'- tioned as to permit them to wear kilts "with due dignity." S. Hulchi'.son is reported as having told the society that lie wo«!d "have something serious to say about it" if .his wife ever .wore kilts. Can you imagine American husbands having^ the audacity ^to tcll,}*tli§ii- 'American wives* that they can'tlweav the kind of skirts they choose their legs are not ''suitable"? Japanese Sorrow The Japanese bombed and sank tho U. S. gunboat Panay in the Yangtse river. They machine-gunned survivors trying to get to shore, harassed thorn on land. The Japanese were oil, so sorry. Officials and citizens alike joined in profound apologies. It was all a mistake. , So a Japanese newspaper started /taking up a collection from citizens to show how- sorry the nation was that the incident occurred. It amo.unlcd to 7021 yen—§2040 in American money. That's how sorry the Japanese were for sinking a ship, killing three men and wounding ^ score. U. S. Ambassador Joseph Grew announced he would use the money for some project to promote Japanese- American relations.

These wore the wDrdu of Washtnglon dispatches: Washington, Jan. 15.—A clear niajoiliy of administration supporters on the Supreme Court appeared assured today when President Roosevelt nominated fiollcltor General Stanley need, a veteran defender of New cnncliiiriil.s, lo succeed retiring Justice Ororgc Sutherland.

Surely II must be weed that the only duty of A Supreme Court Justice Is to support Ihc cou- slltullon, without any reference lo an administration. The way we have come la think about (he Supremo Court lotlny is further shown by the statement in the Washington news dispatches: Administration men count on the nomination (of Mr. Uecdl to assure Roosevelt measures generally the support of ql least five of the court's nine members In the future.
