America Isolated Only in Military Sense Cont'rc'.ss may be looking toward '> balanced budget, hut ii dark shadow is falling across the balance shed—two dark shadows, in J'acl, with more to come. They arc cast by the 35,000-ton battleships which Uncle Sam is goinff to be building shortly. Battleships are complicated tilings and they aren't built on'lunch money. By the -time these proposed additions to the fleet are put into commission, the country will have spent something like 570,000,000 on them—with the prospect of adding a couple of equally expensive ships to the llect every year or so for an indefinite period. Seventy millions isn't such n tremendous sum, :\s government handouts go these days. But the money does count up, when you peel "it off your roll in layers like that. Without building any battleships at all, wo are spending something like half a billion on our navy this year. The battleships- simply mean that it'll be a long time before the navy gets any cheaper. Now the point of all this is that •what wo can <Io in tlio way of cutting government expenses depends to a very great measure on the unpredictable flow of events overseas. \Ve aren't building that enormous navy just for the esthetic pleasure of looking at big gray steamboats. We arc building it because, wilii the world in the stale it's in, we know that we may need it pretty badly one of these days. : So before we can think 'about getting back to the old days when bud- gels balanced themselves painlessly, we have to see whether the outside world is going lo let us. And that, in turn, is merely a sample of the way in which all our plans and our actions these days are subject to the pressure of forces over which we have no control. We spend huge sums and plan endlessly to restore posterity. We may do a first-rate, olleclivc job—but day after tomorrow some upset in Europe niay knock the bottom out of world recovery and put us on the skids for another long decline. -We re-establish our faith in simon- pure democracy. But if we are jammed into a \yar next week, and war^time censorship, regimentation, and OUT OUR WAY rule by the brass hats descend on tia, where is our democracy? Out.Hie .window, for Uie duration of the war at the very least. Whether we like it or not, we arc a part of work) society. We arc not down in the cockpil^-Uic Atlanlie i.s still broad—but our boasted isolation is isolation only in a military bouse. In a limited but tragically real way, our collective future can be changed overnjiflil by the actions of some ir- rcsjwnsiblc megalo-maniac in uniform. The sad fact is that we can't even guess at our future without keeping one eye on Kurope. And in the Europe of today, unfortunately, almost, any disastrous thing may happen overnight, frit •> (errors An interesting phenomenon that almost invariably marks the debut of new inventions has again made its a»- p'earanco. New York television engineers report that certain people are complaining that t)ic invention has become a menace. Most of the complainants are women, who believe that someone is spying on them via television, or trying to take away an inheritance. One young woman insists that a television Torn peeps at her whenever she lakes a- bath. Engineers recall that the phonograph, telephone, radio, and other inventions, in llicir early days, bothered people in the same way. When the X-ray h'rst made its appearance, for instance, there was an indignant protest from women throughout the world. It wa.s their belief, it scorned, that, armed with this diabolic device, 1.11911 -would Ije able to see right through their clothes. Apparently science advances so rapidly that some human beings (ind it hard to keep abreast of it. : What Is Wrong There has been a disturbing number of commercial airplane crashes of ) late. Kveu more disturbing j s the persistent charge that thu U. S. Bureau of Air Commerce, which is responsible for in aviation, has been failing to do its job properly. This bureau is a part of the Department of Commerce.. When the Senate .Commerce Committee investigated it, following the 1035 crash in which Senator Bronson Cutting was killed, it .was charged thai politics in the department was preventing the bureau from functioning properly. .It is reported now that the Senate will order another investigation, and one hopes that the report is correct. The bureau needs to be as efficient and as impervious to political influence as any branch of the government can possibly be. The Senate would be well-advised to get to.'the bottom of the matter so that a drastic overhauling can be made, if necessary. SIDEGLANCES By George Clark "ph,vKclld, kids.

TUB STORY sow (io ny WIT CHAPTER IX AN expensive orchestra from in ('uses of Dangerous JBleediiu Paris played the song hit of the year, "I'd Give Up My Throne for You." Japanese lanterns festooned the wide grounds of the Villa San Marfiarete. Now and then a sleek motor ear would glide in through the outer gates to deposit some latecomers. The last guest had finally arrived and been greeted. Heggie Van Twync- detached hirnsel! from a grouii at the improvised bar and sauntered over to host and hostess. "What you need's a master ct ceremonies," he said. "Want ma to act for you? I'll get the pauy rollin'." He turned away and mounted to the temporary platform \vhere the orchestra was holding forth "Friends, Romans and coudfty- men, including the Scandinavian,' said Reggie, swaying a trifle-.' "Wi are here tonight lo celebrate' i 'sptcious occasion. This ia a grea anniversary und we've got to tre'a It right.

Reggie patted the orchestra cader on the back and climbed lown. "Did I give you a send-oft?" he skcd Paul and Ardath. "People, vhen I open a party it slays pened." This, Paul concluded two hours afer, was no exaggeration. Per- ormers from all the hot spots vithin a 100-mile radius seemed o have been pressed into service. There were blues singers, torch ingers, and singers whsse ditties might have brought blushes to the ••ars of cash customers at a slag moker. There were fan dancers, nuscle dancers, and just plain dancers whose talents, as far as 'aul could see, consisted solely n an extraordinary willingness to perform without any clothes at ill. Paul turned away and walked lutside the circle of light and ound to a secluded spot among he shrubbery that fringed the "arther end of the villa. The monotonous jungle beat of the orchestra, the burbling wail ol its saxophones and its muted trumpets, the laughter and the bursts of applause and the shrill voices, came to him faintly hero; he could ook away from the lighted lawn, with its color and its movement, ind see the dark bay under its canopy of stars. can say AND it seemed thai he could see the long procession of his predecessors, the kings who liac reigned before him, passing in ;hostly review. And all ol them, it seemed, hac this in common — that they served a greater thing than themselves sometimes without knowing it sometimes falleringly and uncertainly, but always instinctively and, in the end, faithfully. ' He rubbed his forehead wearily He had broken that procession he had stepped out of it — for Iwe lor freedom, "for the need to ful flit some obscure responsibility t his own soul. Now he could se<. that he had made an impossi.bli bargain. And he was suddenly conscicrns of a tremendous home sickness for his own land and hi own people; a great desire- cairn to him to leave this silly, drunkei revel, board his stout little sail boat, steer north around sullen Cape Roman, and set a course fo his home land. He look a step iorwarcl, impulsively, as' if to turn desire into action. Then he paused; a man and a woman, dimly outlined against the lights on the lawn, had strolled near him. They did not sec him.
