Quotations From Shakespeare ' Tofiay we're going 'to 'quote Shakespeare—riot William, but a con temporary whose first name is Monroe, and who-owns a fishing tackle plant Itn-ni'd aii'plfine iiat'ts factory in Kalumaxoo, Mich. This Kalamaxoo Shakespeare runs niors to'(ruth than poetry. His speech is'devoid of elegance or imagery. But • ''there -is a good -bit of soinul and timely sense in a plan lie outlined the oilier day to Edward A. EvaliS of the Scripps- •Ijownrit nejvspapers. "People without work'consiinic taxes," said Mr. Shakespeare. "People in procJutitivc .jobs pay taxes and provide •better markets for business iind 'industry." There is a statement as imnsnilable as. any of the 'bard's. ! hest aphovisms. But the contemporary Shakespeare dofcsn't leave it at that. He suggests ways and means of achieving the second condition, a con- •aummntion -devoutly io be wished lit the post-war future. . Specifically, Mr. Shalicspcnrc would have the -government give employers a direct and positive incentive for creat- •ing new jobs after the war. .Michigan, he -points out, rewards' business with .good records for steady employment by reducing their unemployment coin- •pensation 'contributions -from '1 to 2, -2 or 1 per cent. He doesn't see why . 'Congress couldn't adopt a similar plan. , He suggests establishing an employment base of GO .per cent of the person; iiel hi- the war's end. The employer would get no" credit for base level or below. But he would get 1 per cent : . credit for 'each 2 ,per cent rise, and a '20 per cent credit for full wartime employment. At 'the end of the year 'the •employment base and incentive rates would be revised according to the unemployment still remaining. Mr. Shakespeare wouldn't have Congress paying off on phony figures. The new'jobs would have to be real ones— 35 to '10 hours a week, and '15 or '18 weeks a year. Such a plan would obviously save the Treasury- more than was lost through tax -credits. ' Mass 'unemployment, as Mr. Shakespeare points out, would mean spend- ing.billions to put people to some sort of work, probably through some sort of • WPA. The country couldn't afford that. 'Die taxpayer who foots the unemployment bill would certainly like to avoid it. It's hard to soe much objection fo Mr. Shakespeare's plan from anv- body's-point of view. It is apparent that the majority of Americans—including 'organized labor—would like to see privnte industry solve the whole post- Avar full employment problem if it can.

Charles (Commando) Kelly gave the press in Washington nn account ot the lioroic soldering Ihat won each of (hem the Congressional Medal'of Honor. What they said was mndc all '(he more inspiring )>y (he modest, sti'aight- I'm'Wiml, nnclramatic way in which they .said it. And perhaps (lie most memorable statement of nil was the off-hand remark with which Scrgl. Kelly finish- ed'his story: "That was about nil of that battle. We went back and got ready for the next .one." l;icut. Ch'ilders and Sci'tft. Kelly are on 21-day leave.

And Still No Help 'The German people are to eiit, according to a League of Nations report, by draining off fresh vegetables, fruit, and other vitamin- rich foods from -occupied lands. The report also states that thove are "abso- 'hite. sacrifices" in France, Italy, Slovakia and the 'Baltic countries, a'nct that there wns famine in 19'12 and ".semi-starvation" last year in Poland, Greece, and parts of Yugoslavia and Nazi-occupied Russia. America, citi/.ens and government alike, would like to help these hungry people. The well-fed western hemisphere could do it. The exiled governments could pay for the food. The -distribution machinery is available. The practical difficulties arc few. But Th'ilain stubbornly refuses to lift the blockade so that even 'an attempt may be made. This'government has been patiently acquiescent. It is time, by every humanitarian standard, for firmer insistence. Flying Manpower . Yielding to criticism of its plan for turning loose :11,000 civilian flying instructors, the Army Air Forces has offered pilot commissions or other posts commensurate with their abilities to these trained flyers. The news is welcome, even Ihongli it took a little public indignation to bring- it. This is 510 time to squander trained military manpower, with hard fighting, hard flying and heavy casualties ahead., * SO THEY SAT The Jnps make np their mlml on wlint, we nre en!»B Io <!<> am!

A couple of clays Inter Phil checked back. "How about that loan-out to Republic for 'Yokel Boy?" he asked. "Sony." was tile reply, "Republic is looking for a Phil Silvers type, but they don't want you." "I could have put n gun Io ni.\ head," Phil said.

He had tlie usual Japanese awe ol a person who had great classical knowledge. "Thank you," he said, in English, adding Hie polite hissing io typically Japanese. "I liked Link," Courlrighl said. "I think everything is now set to use him. When can you start?" "Tomorrow," said Azarasici. "Tomorrow we will proceed," drew away from Niji Prison. Hr*Courlrig>U agreed. did not actually tremble, but he had the other symptoms ot nervousness. A hard heavy tension in bis cltcst and pro/use perspiration. Spewing sharply to hide his condition, ho lold (he driver to HO north on Ota-Maehi street. They turned info the section of. patent medicine shops. Azaraski swallowed two phcno- barbiiol capsules from <-i smalt supply wliicli he bought. Then lie re-directed the car. lie was composed by (ho time he readied the foreign residential district Yamcitc-Cho, the hilly area called the Hluir. He drove past the German Hospital and the Bluff Gardens, (o (lie Iloshi Apartment House at .Tju-ni on the street formerly named Wilson, now re-named Daimo. The building was modernistic and sliow- liorsy. .A Korean scrvanl girl admitted him to the fourth floor apartment, nml prepared to lake his uniform cap and gloves, an offer which he refused v/ilh a politeness which it was unusual for him to show a Korean. Tilda Courtright was sitting with a drink in one of her bony capable hands, in the living room. Azaraski's manner was different now. He did r.ot spe.nk first, did' not take a chair until in- i'iled. "Sit down," rci.irt Cmn-trisal. "And. if you caro to do ::r,, joisi'mr! in i drink." njt»iwk;! hia 'Treasure. Azaraski nodded. Suddenly he wished il was all dime. Once ended,' it would be finished. It was (lint sort of thing."The only two people ; criminating, r:owing anything in- who could also afford to lalk, would be Link and Norma Greer. Azaraski had decided what lie would do at the end. His experience in China early in the war had taught him lion- best (<> dispose of such a situation. He would shoot them bolh. "This is fine sake," he said, sipping the hot wine. "One cannot buy it now. I wish I had had the foresight to lay in a supply." T JLDA COUnTIHGHT did not '- show Av.iiraski to tiie door as he left. She let the Korean servant girl do thai. But Conrlriyhl did jump up and turn out the lights and stand at the darkened window, watching the street, watching Azaraski leave, maVung sure that he did leave. Then Courtright went to the hack ot (he apartment, to a closet. There was a Japanese hidden in the closet, He was a fat, smiling Japanese with a perfectly while mustache and no hair whatever on his head. "ITe lias gone, Monk," Courtright said. She slill called him Monk because tha( U'iis what she had called: him v.'hen he had go::c- Io sciiuu'. to hcv, many years "_ ar.d it .pleased IWo:J.-. "You suppose." Monlc sai-J, "Uie may, Tcllo'.v came because lie know I was here?" 'Of course not'," 'said 'Court- 1 ! right. "He had business." "Ah, business," Monk said. -He was satisfied. Satisfied about his own salely, but a little concerned for Courlrighl. "You pardon me," he said. "But that Captain Aza- raski, is not much good." . ' Courlrighl gave the fat man quick snjilc. "Thank you, • Monk. Hnl Araraski went Ijt school to me too, you know. K5' whs not a good boy, cither." Monk bowed. Ifc liked to bow, although he had never been a servant. lie was a fisherman, a • | good one, who owned his own boat. 3 j He knew that Courlright ap- • proved of 'him, and it pleased i j him. Monk, although no one; would dream H now, had been a limid and backward boy, Tilda Courtright, in her gruff v;ay, hud done much Io help him overcome his handicaps, bolh personal and financial, lie knew thc.inoncy she had loaned him had not meant ; much to her, but il had meant a : | greal deal (o him.

At Anraku cove. Do you know where Aivrttku Is?" "I know where it is," Courtright said. "And 'my hont, you know It when you ECO it?" Japanese fishing boats looked monotonously alike, but Couit- rifiht knew Monk's craft. "I -know it," she sai'd. "Ki \vo Isukcro!" sai-l Monk'. Then he looked unco^ifortable because he had unwittingly spoken Japanese in his anxiety. He said it in Englash: "You nmsl b'e careful." "That," said Courlright, "goes for you, too, Monk.
