Paying For Peace The Mature ' ot ncutrnlity lion being discussed in Congress reveals that Americans generally want peace so much that they arc willing to pay heavily for it. Wars in these timc.s arc .tragically cosily, they usually accomplish nothing, and the victor is that in name 'only. America's desire for peace, even at a cost, scenvs therefore the part of wisdom. There are other instances, however, in which paying for peace is bad /and un-American policy. If conditions uncovered by the New York racket, probe prevail throughout American cities, merchants far* and wide are paying through the nose to racketeers lo escape warfare with Die hoodlums, thus helping the underworld strengthen its grip on our business institutions. Obviously, there 'ar_c situations in which the price paid for- peace should be war. A benefit Of War . In a recent.interview abroad 1 , Vis- couut, Astor, husband of American,born Lady Aslor, JI. P., cited an' in, teresting fact. Under auspices' of the League of Nations, a group of nutrition experts i has Ijeen endeavoring t,o get Countries to devote more care lo the important . .r^vt matter of proper food for their young. "In some countries'whore w(j cannot get interest in luitritiofrort ,thc ground j .of child welfare," maintains Lord -Astor,-"we find it aroused by the need •{or stronger'recruits for the army." \Vhitc this seems too strongly remi- Tihcent of fattening the kine for the "•market, preparedness for war apparently does serve at least one good purpose. What an ideal state of things it would' be, now, if this trend toward proper-child care would gather pio- mentum and become a 'permanent feature of our civilization, and wan could be outlawed. The Whole Truth 'Censorship which clonks activities in dictatorships abroad works to keep the average American from getting a true picture of conditions, financial mid otherwise, that exist in those nations. Not being able, therefore, lo gauge MONDAY, MARcii s, the future cconoinio' status of • sucK i countries', Americans arcvatj-ft/iiisacU [• viuitngc in subscribing to bond Issues afloat by those governmimta, In filing recently with the Securities and ^Exchange Commission* registration of a ?G9,000,000 bond- issue, to l>ay interest on foreign debts, the German government refuse' reveal some information the SKC thought pertinent. The SKC therefore- told American holders of German securities that the' Reich government had a "secret debt" of about ?2,000,000,000, the fact which the Reich had withheld. If the SEC continues in this manner to fill in all the details behind foreign issues, it should bo .a valuable aid to U. S. investors, especially at a time when such issues promise to become numerous. • Reversing The Game Foreign Minister Anthony Edcii oi: Great Britain tells Germany that Kng- lund will hot consider the return of Germany's war-lost colonies until Gcr- jiiany, in turn, has given satisfactory pledges not to, upset the peace of Europe. • ' It has been the German contention that: the colonies must be returned first; lifter that, there will bo lime '.enough' to discuss a new peace pact. Now the British are reversing the- k'amc-^-and their action « a step toward order and security in international relations. For the Nazi brand of diplomacy is diplomacy by threat, diplomacy by fear—^"givc us what we want, or we will liifht for it." However understandable it may be, in view of the r cruel pressure Germany lias been under in these post-war years, it is-, nevertheless a tremendous danger to world peace. Should the English course be followed, instead,. the world's fear of war would be Vastly reduced. wwm Aiiy sltilowii slrlXc that iimlcrtnkos to: dike over -private properly is a very serious and fundanieulni thing, nnd hv my .opinion will not be long endured by the courts. —Secretary of Commerce D. o.

"Perhaps you'll be glad to have me away when you realize how much of you I want to see." Her eyes denied it. ' lie said: "Look, we're got to arrange our program." : "Are we going to have a program?" If anyone other than Larry had said that, she'd have dismissed the idea immediately. But Larry wasn't any one person. "We'll have to discover what plays j'ou want to see. And how you feel about winter sports—" What site wanted! Later Daphne would wrap herself in the warm comfort of what Ihat meant, his complete regard for the things that would make her happy. Now she was content lo listen. "And what about hockey? And the six-day bicycle races?" "Love them both," she responded promptly. But if lie had said, "Do you like Jo stand foi- hours watching men excavating?" she'd have said it was her favorite pastime. 'We'll do them all. Let's begin with a new show on Saturday. Sunday, if it's clear, we might try skating and later we'll go—" "Wait a minute," Daphne .implored, laughing. "It's Thursday now and Saturday and Sunday are so nearly here. Aren't you rushing me?" "Certainly," he said, "but I'm twenty-eight years old and up lo now my life lias been misspent. I've got lo make up for Ihosc years." There was wonder in Daphne's eyes that looked back into his— and iu(o the years ahead. * t t 'PHIS has never happened lo me before. Daphne thought. I must be careful because anylhing that can open such doors to my heart—this now feeling of. coming home—can hurt me. Later she would straighten it out with herself. Now, she could sip her drink and give herself to the moment. "Saturday, it is,'!, she said. She Ihought of Jennifer's method of "keeping. J em dangling." Jennifer!
