A Militant Britain May Better Serve Pacifism If the $7,600,000,000 preparedness program 'which Great Britain is launching brings pain to flic pacifists, they might reflect that it is pacifism, which is largely responsible for it. During the last half dozen years, British foreign policy was motivated by just one desire—to keep out of war at any cost. To a very great extent, this is re-, sponsible for the parlous look of things in Europe today. It was this, as much as anything, which crippled the League of Nations, and which made it possible for gangster diplomacy to • have • tilings its own way. A great deal of the saber-iatlling which has disturbed the world of late would never have taken place if the t British government, had not shied skittishly away from every risk of war. When peace came in 1918, the British people bad a complete stomachful of war—for which, when you inspect the casualty lists, you can hardly blame them. The averpgc Briton didn't want to hear the \\ord mention- • eel. The government economized on naval and military budgets. For a decade and a half thereafter,/ t the goveimnent- drifted along, trust-" ing that the League of Nations and ".'the general war-weariness of ; the world would keep things-peaceful! "-, 4 Then things began to happen. Encouraged by the way Japan"got away • with --the strong-arm stuft in Man-- churia, Mussolini elbowed his way into ' Ethiopia. Britain immediately went through, the motions of stopping him, ' only to find that he .didn't stay. For Britain was not ready for a war, and Mussolini knew it. Britain beat a humiliating retreat, the League of , Nations fell mortally HI, and the cause of^collcctive security ami international XSacency suffered a terrible blow in the solar plexus. The same thing occurred when Hitler reoccupied the Kliineland and threw the last scraps of the Versailles treaty out the window. Once again fnsland was in no shape to do more _ than utter meaningless protests. Once • again the league was flouted, and collective security walloped. Last of all « ime the Spanish revolt. Here, too, British diplomacy was ' helpless. As a democracy, Britain had to stand by and watch autocracv tm- trench itself on the peninsula. CliieC support or the league, Kiie was helpless before an international clique, that fought an undeclared war on the territory of a supposedly free and jn- ' dependent nation. Now Hie policy the British followed through all this was not, as a writer in the current issue of Fortune Magazine points out, a policy to enforce peace; it was a policy to avoid war. There is a vast difference. Because Britain refused to take risks, Europe .was left at the mercy of dictators who were ready to fight if they did not get what they wanted. If England now re-arms at a prodigious rate, who can blame her— or feel that the action is a menace to world peace? Pacifism may actually be better served by a militant, well- armed Britain than by a Britain which is all too obviously unready for a light. How About Pauls Senator' Hal Smith of Clarendon, arguing for the Smith-Coleman bill to make the wholesale liquor business in Arkansas a state monopoly, tola''the state senate that 50 per cent of the wholesale liquor trade of the state is in the hands of Jews and that "we're just holding, a blanket over the Jews and. letting them make a'million dollars." As to the accuracy of Senator Smith's statements concerning Jewish control and Jewish profits in the liquor business we arc not Informed. It does occur to us, however, that if justification for the stale entering the liquor business is to be found iu the fact that Jews are making money in that business, why shouldn't the proposition be hioadcned to include, for example, the coat and pants trade? Or does Senator Smith propose to take that up next? Have we a bu;uV • ding Hitler under the capitol dome at Little Hock or just a little demagogue trying to enroll the forces of prejudice in support of a pet measure?

He lived at Brett Hall with his mother and his aunt. Daphne said, "Let's have frog's legs for dinner and something gala lor a sweet." "Not for me. My figure means too much," Jennifer answered .promptly and stretched her lilhe form full-length on the lounge. "Why the sudden celebration?" ' Daphno couldn't tell her that she was suddenly light and gay inside her—lighter and gayer than she had been these last two months. She couldn't say that it made her happy lo know that Larry Smith wasn't married. She took her happiness into the kitchen and rattled her pans rmd plates noisily.' Not Hint she was in love with Larry Smith— She dismissed the thought instantly 'as being ridiculous. And admitted lhat he v;as the first man in her life lhat sha had wanted to know, wanted to make her friend. The first man to whom she had been instantly attracted. The first man she had ever known so briefly and never baen able to forget. Even Anne had sensed that. '- 3 * * ' ^J3O\V was tiie job'today?" she i said to Jennifer when they were sealed at the candle-lit fable. Usually she avoided the subject since Jennifer could be so explosively unhappy about it. Tonight her sense of svolU spread to tolerance even of that unpleasantness. "Lousy," Jennifer said concisely. "Darling, why don't you attack it from a different point of view? Vou wanted It* work in Wall Street and you're working there. There must be somolfelng good about it. I know that you're not used lo being cooped up but lln'i's what goes wilh a job like thai. When you get to like 11, it doesn't seem confining. What, exactly, is the trouble?" "Men," .' Jennifer said. "The wrong ones. There are some awfully attractive hoys in the outfit but I never'even' get a chance to meet them. Then old Harrison asks me lo lunch and,today lie wanted lo know if he could have a dale with me on Friday night. You can imagine what t said!" "I can," replied Daphne. "Of course, Harrison is 35, and that isn't tlie doddering age. And he does have social position. You might as well learn now as later, Jennifer, that the attractive boys you meet this way have girls in their'own set." "I'd like to know if you mean lhat I'm not good enough for (herr.f The Bretts aren't exactly POOJ- while trash." "I know," Daphne went on pa- tieiWty, "but we can't go around with a marked paga 'B' of the social register pinned on our frocks. And we can't talk about it. New York is a hard town, Jennifer. The working girl, is labeled the working girl here the same as anywhere else even if she does appear to have more chances. She has to work for them. You can't use a job as a social wedge. Not your kind of a job?" "Why not?" Jennifer disagreed. 'If I get a chance to meet the cind of men I want to meet, why can't I take advantage of the op- porlunity? If a chorus girl—" "You're not a chorus girl, Jennifer." ' ' ; . "Not yet," Jennifer said, and seeing the shadow darken her sister's face, she got up, came around the table'land kissed Daphne on the lop of her head. • "You're; like a naughty child,' Daphne said, ."and you'll have to be punished for frightening me. You can wash Ihe dishes and I'll wipe them." ,Jennifer splashed water '.merrily on her smart frock. ."Don't bother about it, t can 'send it to the cleaners." Daphne wanted to protest that every dollar— "Why didn't you tell me how attractive'; the Brett tenant i Jennifer /demanded arid Daphne had no answer. .She didn't—or liadn't seen much povit in ex- lolling the attractions of a married man to her young sister. • "I thought he was very attractive the one time I saw him," she said, concentrating on the glass she was drying. e * * '"THE trouble with you, Daph, •*• is that you don't know how lo make the best of your opportunities." Daphne raised a quizzical eyebrow. Jennifer went on: "I do! The one time you saw !iim, indeed! I saw him once and made up my mind I v.'as going to see him again." "There's a 9 o'clock train, you (. -night run out and ask him if the water pipes are working," Daphne said dryly. "No need for that. I'm subtle. I'll do it my way—the subtle \vay." "It's,a great help to be subtle," Daphne agreed pleasantly. "It's three, Dnph. Aren't you going to get dressed?" Jennifer looked at the litile wrist watch under her tweed sleeve. "What arc you going lo do?" Daphne asked lazily. "Tuck is coming around in his roadster. We thought we'd drive in the country." 'The country, Daphne knew meant Brett Hall. "That must bo Tuck now," sht said when an imperious rap sounded at the door. . .: It was Tuck. "Hello, kids. What's this? The demon worker Daphne in pajamas at this time of day?" Daphne managed a look of appealing sweetness. "Don't scold, Tuck. I'm feeling lazy and fuzzy and dreading going to a smoky parly with a lot o£ old fogies." Jennifer gave her" a sharp glance. "Then why go?" Tuck said at once ai Daphne had intended ho should, "Get into your clothes and come with us." "Where are you going?" she/ asked innocently. 4 "Thought you knew. No place special. Jen wanted to drive up to Brett Hall to see'ihe foliage." "Well," Daphne answered over her shoulder as she disappeared ' into her bedroom, "since you're going no place special; I'd like lo see' the foliage myself.' I'll be ready in a jiff." Jennifer's angry eyes missed hers, (To Be Continued) The southern celrstial pole is .not marked by a bright star, such as Polaris, which marks the northern pole.
