The puzzle, after reading all of the opinions, is how I he other five justices' minds worked to reject Justice Stone's; logic and decide that Schneiderman is entitled to citizenship. Justice Stone's reasoning (ills 21 printed .pages, but the gist of it can be "summarized quite briefly. When Schneiderman was jiaturali/ud, in 1927, he, had been for six years an acti\>e ;C6nipiunist Parly worker. During much of that time he had been an educational director, teaching Stalinist doctrine. The party'doctrine included advocacy of armed revolution "by means "of rifles, bayonets, cannon" to enforce; ami maintain the .supremacy of "the, conquering party." "The proletariat must, resort to an armed'"-uprising,"' 1 said the Statutes, Theses and Conditions, of Admission to ttic'"Co'iimiuhist International during the7pgriod when Schneiderman was an educational .director for the Party. The^aturalizatioYi law requires that applicants,, for five years preceding naturalization, shall, have demonstrated attachment to the principles of the Constitution of this country. Justice Stone assumes, and surely nobody will challenge, thiil the principles of our Constitution at least include freedom of speech, of the press, the pr}yileges'-bf'life, liberty •;and< 1 propert,v i thea'ight to representative, government,' the^Silty' to" obey 'Constitutional laws. Alt .of these the Communist Party, at the time when Schneiderman worked ins^awt^fbY -i^and became an-American cit^iay jby- naturalization, denied, work- ed,(ag§nist and said must be destroyed by*flri$4fa'r,i|tti; resort to armed uprising. JiowJ'.'Jirstice • Stout 1 ^yonders, could airy'-man exhibit's attachment to the principles 1 -of-the Constitution and at the same time teach, as vocation and avocation, the doctrine that those prin- cipleiT'Vmisrbe destroyed? , •• • » « • . ;He rejects utterly the opinion of Justice;Douglas thai, once ii' court in an ex-p'a'rle proceeding has assumed, ^ for lack of contrary evidence, an applicant's adherence to American principles, thereafter there can be no question of error. t No wonder the other live justices had tp write •. three opinions, among them, to explain their rejection of Justice Stone's compelling dissent. Bombing M<ijoi}> The etoimous impoil IIKL which bombing has a sumed in Ihi, \\<u ic ceives wan-anted recognition as, for the fiist time, bom udiei<- -\ic piotnolcd to the rank ot nuijoi I hits it I ciomci possible for the man who drops the eggs to be. the ranking officer in his plane—-an honor and responsibility that used to be reserved to pilots. Meyer Levin, who was perhaps the, first bombardier to make big headlines, was only a non-commissioned officer. Now graduates of our extensive training system for bombardiers are graduated as second lieutenants or flight officers, I ho some as newly graduated pilots. Still Speeding The most recent reports indicate that automobilists still are exceeding the wartime ,30-mile .speed limit. Checks in 11 states showed averages as high as 47 miles an hour, which is very hard on lirps Hint can not be replaced for some time U> come. The Public Roads Administration of the KWA reminds such sloppy drivers that tires wear'out half again us. fast til '15 miles an hour us at ;!!>. As the PHA puls il, tires that would wear out in '10,000 miles at <I5 miles an hour would give nearly (10,000 miles of service at 3G miles an hour. Nazis <4sk Lebensraitm While Hiijians disport themselves and enjoy (lie closest semblance to liberty they have known in years, Nazi officers in our prisoner-of-war camps demand "Ichensraum" which, translated catch-as-cutch-can, might be called elbow-room. They want more living' space and living quarters, more room in which to stretch out, a swimming pool. They say American and British prisoners in the Reichland live in hotels and have pools. We wonder—would these Nazis be interested in swapping the food, clothing and such luxuries we supply them for a whole village in which to live? Axis Viewpoint The other day we suggested that if we were Joe Gocbbcls we should wcl- ccme the coal strike as a godsend to our hard-pressed propaganda budget. Apparently Nazi Joe felt the same .way. (Jerman, Italian and Japanese" propa-- gauda has played the strike as evidence of disunity, as a symptom of class struggle, as a reason why we cannot produce the armament to win the war, as "proof that the American people are not behind their government." We know that these interpretations are false. We also know that the slowdown in production will prolong the war and . cost many American, Urilish, Russian, Chinese mid other lives on our side.

"First, though, you'd bct- cr get rid of that poisoned cocktail Throw it in the fireplace." He started to rise, then settled back m Ins seat and looked at me shamefacedly. "H isn't poisoned. I was just blurring." H was my turn to glare al him .-ir j .. , a mome nl I snapped, Hand il here, then. 1 need il He got up and handed me the flrmk and stood there watching me drink it, still with that shamed Itttlo b,oy look on his face "I guess there isn't anything I can say to you," he ventured at last. You'll never forgive me." I set Ihe cocktail glass down and looked up at him, six feel o{ dominant, slubborn, humbled manhood. Michael had been big. I like big men. I sighed. "Did you tncan what you said about marrying Kalhy?" He stared nt me. "Do you think I'd have taken a chance on Idll- i ing you lo clear her if I didn't mean it?" I felt my neck. I guess he meant I it all right. ."It would be awkward not speaking, wouldn't il, it you're going to be in the family?" I said thoughtfully. "I suppose I'll have lo forgive you—on one condition." "What's that?" "That you lei me handle this affair from now on." But that took a bit of arguing when he learned my plan. He said hotly that il was inhuman to let t Stay in iail whch 1 could— "Oh, rot," I broke in impatiently, "jail won't hurt Kalhy. And it may take some of the arrogance out of her. You'll thank me for that one of these days—it you marry her." He grinned then, a slow wicked grin, made a sudden lunge, picked me up bodily and hugged me tight. * t * QVER Clint's shoulder I saw the w living room door open. George Baker stood on the threshold. It occurred lo me then (bat Clint and i had rather overlooked George in our litlle scheme. George eame in trying to wipe consternation from his face. "I brought the lawyer, Mrs. Kraik. I thought there were some tilings you'd better tell him before he sees Kathy." II was that smug outraged lool; on his face that gave me Ihe idea. P simply had to save Kalhy from being grateful to him the rest of her life. "It's no use, George. Kathy won't sec the lawyer—unless you release her from her engagement." "I can't—I lolrl Her thai yesterday. How would it look?" "George! She'll have to tell everything lo save her own neck. And she won't unless you release her." "Every Hi ing—" George looked at me uncertainly. He was wilting. I waited for him to sit down. "There's something you still don't know about that elopement of Derek's and Kathy's, George." H wasn't hard for me lo look ashamed. I really was. "Woltei and I found them that time and brought her back home—but we didn'l find them until the next day . . . you understand." Well, that did il. George dc- liarled. I had seen no need lo tell him that the night Derek had spent with Kathy he had been too busy dosing her with bicarbonate of soda for an acute attack of indigestion (o make Jove to her. It was a very sick girl and a very frightened boy Waller and I had in tlxsl haul voim. J)EPUTY SHAW looked at .me somberly when the day came that I could tell him the truth. "You know there arc a number of things I could do, Mrs. -Kraik. A riumbcr of things that iti the' line ot duty I should do." "Yes—you could put me in jail for suppressing evidence, for helping a murderess escape the penalty for her crime. But now that, she is dead—" I crushed the tele-' gram from Will Grady in my hand, "Are you going to?" "Damn it, no!" So he took the litdc black shawl with the bullet hole in one corner to the sheriff, the sheriff gave a statement to tile press, and that was that. For it was Margaret who killed Derek. Margaret who took the incriminating wallet and money and ring from his body and buried them in the - : woods that night; Margaret, still-wearing the shawl, who blundered into me on the patli in the dark; Margaret who tried to take her own life by' drinking the sleeping medicine.. Poor Margaret, who must have" been so torn between divided loyalties that she temporarily lost all reason. Margaret, whose fCar.of what Derek might do to 'Kathy was balanced on the same side of the scales as her tear of what the law might do lo Derek. Margaret, the faithful, who could not bear Ihe thought that harm or the threat of harm should come to any ot the Kraiks, and Margaret who dreaded to see the wild, {emcee: Uions Derek become -a- shittyi Hunted thing. To her deratt3c<t and clouded mind, there must have appeared only one solution. She seen the gun in my desk draw- - thai day when she moved my It tcr files.
