' i '• Wotkl Needn't Choose Between Two e Isms' Perhaps one of the best lessons we can leitrn these (lays is Ihftt the world is not, after all, painted in solid blacks and whites. Too many people are trying to persuade us thnt it is; that we are going to have to make it choice between Iwo extremes, that the time for coin- promise is over 1 , that there is only one fork in tlie road ahead. Thus, for instance, we (mil Col.- Gen, Hermann Gocring, Hitler's right- hand man, telling an Italian audience that Europe today is divided between "countries of order, enlightenment, and good faith," and thos6 of "destruction and bloodshed." _ "A great test, 1 ; he added, "will.dem- onstrate lyMeh of these twb «-il! prevail in Europe." By all of which, of course, (he .German officer 'inapt, that Europe is going to havd tb ( choose between Goni- numism and Fakisrn. Now if we 1 took his word lor it, we slioukl have to admit that the world is facing a, pretty dark and dismal future. People who don't '/.happen ./to care for either Communism or Fascism—and in this country, and very likely in Europe as well; they are in the majority—would have ho place to go. ' But the thing to reriiemfrer is that both of these isms arc counsels of despair. People accept them only when they, ore desperate. A ivorld which is compelled "to choose between two ruthless despotisms is a world which has lost aJHKopo all self-reliance, all confidence in its ability to thjnk its way but ctf-ils .troubles. Why, then, should we let people tell us that we have to swallow ohe or the other? Why let ourselves be convinced that the world i s ma(le of solid blacks and whites, with no intermediate sbaclings? After an, slich countries Bg R _ fend .France, the United States, the SdauctaiBVian nations, and the great &itwh dominions arc doing a pretty tan- job of \vorking out their salvation without resorting to dictatorship ?™ i h .f goi) * to drop everything And follow meekly in the train of t-ermany O r Russia? As a matter of fact, the greatest moment of danger is past, it 1)assc(1 when the democratic nations of the OUT OUR WAY world began to come up from Ihe pit of ;depi'£Ssio)i. The CoiTmuinisiii-or-Fuscism argument had 'more foi'cc four' years J'I'KO tlmii it, has today. Hope lias been reborn iii ttie lands where men can think, speak, and vote as they please. Some "great test" of the kind which JIoV Goerinj/ mentions jirobaljjy is coming in Europe. Rut instead of Icadiiig the whole continent to the red flag or. the swastika, the result may Ije an linpleASant surprise to the complacent partisans of Loth. .)' COURIER- NEWS • Railroads /I/so Served Add the nation's railroads to the list of the people iuid institutions which worked mightily to relieve the sufferers in (he winter's flooded areas. •'. J. Pclley, president of the Association of American Railroads, points out that the country's railroads recently accomplished the greatest mobilization of transportation for rescue and relief work ever known. . They carried some 200,000 refugees to places of safety. They .sent to the flooded areas hundreds, of special trains, loaded with all kinds of supplies from 'medicines to tents. They mobilized thousands of freight and passenger Cars iii the vicinity of threatened areas to be ready for trouble. Mr. Peliey is unquestionably right i» .saying thai the railroads deserve much ,of the-credit for the fact that there was ii'oL far greater loss of life and more, intense suffering in the flooded regions. When the emergency came, they served the country promptly and well.

When I ;isked for il before there was none, as Hie chief steward had only just returned from Miami and he had (he key of (he store where it was locked up. That was why I wrote first on a post- cnrd. The steward tame back wilh the writing paper about five minute.'! nfler I asked him for it. K.: Were you changed then? H.: No, I had not then changed. I was still in lounge suit at five to eight. The steward can prove lhat. How, then, could 1 change my clothes and murder n man in the short space of 20 minules when, in that time, 1 also wrote " longish letter? K.: Where is (fiat letter? ,H.: I see no reason why 1 should answer lhat question. The document is a secret one nnd can add nothing to your investigations. K.: A\v, ihcsc Oriental tricks won't wash with me. If you'd been writing a leller during those 20 minutes you'd only be too pleased to fetch it tip. Will you or won't you? H.: 1 have nothing more to say lo you, sir. • K.: O. K. I've done my best for you. * 4 i DETECTIVE OFFICER NEAME'S SHORTHAND NOTES OF DETECTIVE OFFICER KF.T- TERING'S SECOND EXAMINATION OF THE BISHOP OF BUUli. j£.' Good morning, Bishop. • hope you're feeling all right ogairl now. That was a rotten business your throwing a faint or us yesterday. B.: Thank you, thank you, I an better, yes; but my heart, you Know, has been troubling me foi some" little time arid I'm rather subject to these sudden altnck's. K.: Now, that's real bad, particularly as I've got to ask you some rather unpleasant questions B.: Dear, dear, I cannot think what they would be about. I have nothing to hide, nothing at all, I assure you 1 . .K..: Well, I hope that is so for all our sakes, but I want the truth about your relations with BoJitbo Blane. B.: A casual acquaintance made 'cars ago. I barely knew the man, is I told you yesterday. .. K.: Now, (hot won't do. You H'id&itly haven't looked, ill your 'lack despatch box this morning, r you'd realize that, when I was earching the cabins yesterday 1 pnioved that letter from it Blnne yrote you a few days back from lie Adlon-Claridgc in New York. n that he spoke of the wonderful riendship you had for each other B. Oli, er—(hat. What an ex- raordmary letter it was, wasn't , I took it to be some kind of a oke. if • I don't consider anylhing • of the kind, Bishop. In 1917 ou knew Blane mighty well. B.: What—\vhat's that? . K.: You' hoard. You rerhem- or that nasty business in 1917 o nasty thnt we just won't talk bout it. You were in that up - the necfc and Blane knew it. For .re_asbns we rieedn't go into he' decided" riot to spill the beans' at Ihe time, and so you managed to get away with it. hadn't you wouldn't be a bishop today but Blanc hartn't forgotten he had the goods ori you and, when he contemplated doing some funny business during his trip on Ibis yacht, he took the precaution of writing you first to tip you off that if j-ou didn't keep your mouth shut he meant to put you through the hoop. Now, what have you got tb say? B.: I protest, sir. I protest. An Episcopal Court exonerated me completely—oii every charge—in that most unsavory irmUer in which it was my ill-fortune to be involved when I was witli the troops in 1917. K.: An Episcopal Court might have preferred to give you the benefit of the doubt rdthcr than have a prominent churchman involved in a public scandal. B.: Be careful, air. There is, I warn you, such a thing as the law of libel. wouldn't dare to rake that unsavory scandal up by bringing an action in a civil court but, unless you're very careful, it's all going to come out now whether you want H, to or no. . B.: What cl'yoti mean? You don't think I—I ... ' » » t Weli, maybe we won't have to rake it up, but lhat largely depends on you. It's my duly '« 8?t the man who has murdered tohlho Blano and, if you'll give me your assistance, I'll do my best to keep you out o£ this business as far as I can. B.: That's very kind—very kind, indeed. Of course you must quite undersianrt, Officer, that there was no foundation for those charges, none at all. K.: You came below lo your cabin al 7:05 on the night ot Blnnos death and you did not ap- >eax- in the lounge until a-05 What K.: I should w o r r y. You were you doing all that I want thc truth now. I was in my cabin. I never eft il I assure you. ! K.: Can you give mo any proof hat was so? B-: No. I fear that I cannot. K.: I wonder if you realize Ihc jriousness of your situation, Bishop. Here is this man, Blane, vho knew something which he might have, published to your detriment. He writes you a letter rom New York containing a 'cilcd threat that in cerlain cir- umstances he may give you way. Thc moment he comes on ioard you go down to your cabin. If you had started to change hen you had 40 clear minutes in vhich (o do so, which would bring pu round to 7:45, and then 15 clear minutes before you appeared in the lounge to kill that man who was holding n threat ovci' you. You were the only peisou on board who^had ever met Blane i before and you had a very strong motive for wisliing him ou r ^-'- Ji -- '' way. D'you 'linderstand nt black fhis cns'ri looks again B.: Bill surely you'ic gesling that—that , . . K,: I certainly am. B',: But my dear sir, this is—well, really! K.: It's really a vdry strong ease against you, unless you can prove what you were doing between 7:05 and 8:00. B.: Nothing, absolutely nothing except changing in my cabin, i give you my word but, imforlu- nately, there is no way in which I erin prove it. K.: Ai! right, then, but I'm afraid I shall have to talk lo you again laler on.'- ': t'i (To Be Continued) n The Editor's Letter Box Diclatorsliiii (To the editor:) Tlie Tsar of Riissia is no more And Stalin holds tile reins; And Mussolini's Blackshirts March through Garibaldi's lanes; Hitler and his moustache Have the Germans well in check; And Japan is ruling China With the help of old Kai-Shek; And wtih all these famous precedents To light us oh our nay Let's leave the democratic standard Before another day. The plnns arc. made and sanctioned And the dictator picked out. All that's needed is Ihe emblem And the populace to shout. Let Congress pick tlie State Salute To honor our Choice, That will be about the only Uiin^ In which they'll have a voice. He scored one point on Hitler In his manner or selection, The means of gaining office. Not for him a stulled election He has picked the highest tribunal To back him in his plan, And because they have opposed him Almost to a man He will sivell (heir ranks with henchmen Who will follow where they're led And never dare to turn against The hand from which they're fed. And should eight years be far too , short To run his schemes aground, Another four or eight or twelve Should see them come around, And If Hie Constitution Should encumber on that score The Supreme Court will write another As other lands have done before.
