It tsnl Realism Germany and Russia spend a Kootl deal of their time and energy those days just sitting and breathing lire mid brimstone at /one another. It's a dull day when Hitler fails to come out in I ln's newspapers with <i violent denunciation of the .Communist Menace. And Stalin is just as regular and just as scathing in his references to the Menace of Fascism. This would not be .so important except that both are constantly trying to get people in foreign countries to b;ic)< - .them up. Hitler is always trying to align people of other nations with him in iiis self-appointed crusade against the Commnnis-'t Menace. And Statin, through his devotees in other coun- ' tries, tom-toms away at the idea that • tlie world must back him against Fascism by boycotts if not by more strenuous means. Lots of- people pay allen- > lion to these gentlemen. Their vendetta is upsetting' the world. But there is a childish saying that handsome is us handsome does. And, while they fume against each other, what do these handsome gentlemen do? Well, sir, you would hardly believe it, but underneath the screen of the word ban-age', they just gel down to business and trade with one another to beat the band. Year after year Russia buys more goods from Germany tlpn from any other country. She pays for .the^e goods^with'iiijfe, fresh, ifew-minud" Russian'" "gold. That is mighty nice for Iferr Hitler, who needs that trade balance and that gold very badly. In short, Stalin hates Fascism (and urges that you hate it, itoo). Hut he is happy to give it the gold it needs in exchange for the machinery he needs. And Hitler foams at the mouth at the very mention of Communism (and urges Hint you foam, too). -But he ia very happy to have Hie Russian gold, and doesn't hesitate f o strengthen Communism by sending it his nice machinery— at a profit. •Russia needs .goods. Where docs she g<j "for them? Well, sir, she 'goe.s right where the veriest economic royalist woiild go— where they are cheapest. The Living Age Magazine picks up this plaintive wail from Labour, British trade organ: "The -Soviet buys in the cheapest market, regardless of the conditions which make it possible for thai mar- OUTUKWAY kcl to be cheapest." You «cc % radicals iiaVc sop Iritis)) labor, | quite ii liill of anti-ljillcr goods, mid iii'is wail is very hb'ailtell indeed.

Since the first Pilgrim mothers Itivn- cd out the family washing with one hand and shooed on" Indians with the •other, so to speak, Monday has been wash day in accordance with ;ind keeping lo thai childhood line which goes: "Monday morning we w a s h o u r jdo'ilieK." ' • The Monday habit plays hob with the' laundries which have a peak load early in the week and little or nothing to do the last half. So they will try lo re-educate New York state housewives that it's just as good and. maybe even boiler lo send the laundry on Wednesday and get .it back Saturday. And, presumably, the laundries will turn out some new nursorv rhymes. A'o Bonus. In Camilla Action of the Canadian Legion convention in declaring the organization opposed to anything in the; nature of a war veterans' bonus will probably come as a surprise to Americans who recall the tremendous and successful battle the American Legion put up for its bonus. The Canadian Legion did -go on record as declaring tli'c government bad a responsibility toward those- soldiers who had been injured or disabled by the war and who' now, through that fact, were unable to secure employment. Hut Uiu Canadian organization took cognizance of the petitions being circulated throughout the country agitating for a bonus, aiid declared, in effect, that if « man was not now suffering ill effects of the war, there was no reason for his government to hand him a lump gratuity- because lie had served in the army during war lime. It's a different slant on the soldier's point of view, to say the least. The first month of mnrrlngc was sweet—and after Hint, ooh!—Mrs. Mary Boyrr.

The young woman gave him a warn) intimate smile ;n\d went into a shop. "Slie thinks she knows you very well," Polly saitl,'piciucd. "Jerry, I believe she does know 3-011!

The driver was a large man in a cabby's uniform. Had they been closer, they would have seen that he had a torn car and a nose litat had been several times broken and carelessly mended. "Well, Jerry,". Polly argued, "you don't look like anybody else We- seen in London. I'd not confuse you with other m<m. Ho woman would. Of course that girl knows you! ; Yo»'vc -met her somewhere. 1 reckon you've paid her compliments, or she wouldn't be speaking to you. so — " "So how?" It was an irritated challenge. "So like she had some claim on you. She looked square at you! What's more, you bowed to her, Jerry Whilfield!" "Ot course I did. Just to be polite." "But you smiled at her!" i*. "I didn't!". _, .VP ''You did!'' '•;-• :-.i.-J' "Bah!" .," ' ' ' '_ "Now you're being rude. You save your good manners for London ladies, and you shout at me because I'm just a Connecticut village girl." "For a little bit," Jerry said holly, "I'd turn you over my Itnec and whale you. Where and when would I meet any London girls like that?" "After, the theater," Polly replied with unaccountable feminine shrewdness. "After they're through acting in the play. You told me you'd been to brury Lane, time and :if,uin." "So I have." "And I suppose you'll try to tell me yoti didn't notice one girl from another!" "No, 1 won't,'.' Jerry retorted angrily. "I didn't meet any of them, but there were at least three I used to clap for. And one night I sent them bouquets, all three of "cm!" "Well, then, there' you are!" cried Polly triumphantly, but not enjoying- the triumph. "Did yon put a card in. or a nolc?" "No, I didn't, but I wish I had.

They must be wonderful." i She the door,' and (Jerry followed her in, for the quarrel was in that exhilarating state of fermentation wlien neither wished to abandon it. He walked lo the window and looked down on the street, while she closed the door. "Hasn't .she come but of the shop yet?" Polly inquired, removing her bonnet before n looking glass. "I thought her dress \vas right gaudy for the street. JVfaybe she's gone in 'to buy something more suitable." -...,/.> Jerry whirled about and seized Polly's hands. He- drew her near to him, so that their faces were close. "You're a jealous little cat, Polly Chelscy. You're nobody's- iRel. You'd be hard to handle—" l( Yes, Jerry," she said tenderly, moltingly. "I reckon that's so. ... Oh, Jerry, don't you see how it s? I've never lakeri a sv/eetheart Before. I seem to want all of'you —even the past.that happened before you'd ever heard of me. I reckon this is being in love. It was feeling like this, I guess, that made my mother go lo America in Trepid Chelsey's ship and marry itm." Her arms crept around Jerry's neck and she was answering his kiss. After a moment they drew apart and Jerry said, „ confused and shaken, "We're talking of love again; and I said I'd not till I got you home to your father! How has this happened?" "Because we quarreled," Folly answered simply. rpHEY resumed.their New England reserve ' Ihcn, ns they might have put on topcoats in a storm. But it was not the same. Beneath the reserve fherc throbbed the intimacy of the* emotion they had shared. "Tell me what o'clock we're to start in the morning," Polly said, "so I'll not keep the coach waiting." "I'll knock on 3'our door soon after daylight. You must get- up at once ana dress and pack your clothes. Then we'll have break-, fast and .wait in the courtyard for the Dover coach. I've spoken for two scats. ... Take your money now, Polly. It'll be best for you to carry it. Can you hide it about your person?" "Yes. I've a doeskin bag for that purpose. Will there be any trouble, about the dog in the coach, Jerry?" "I don't think so. If there is, I can take him on top. I'll .-go down now and have a look at hirn_before I turn in." "You're so kind, Jtfrry. HOYJ could I have been so ciuss to you'? How could I have been so hateful?" "I know more about typhoons," Jerry said with a grin, "than about lovers' quarrels. And I. believe it's easier to handle a ship than a woman. Good night, Polly."
