Whether anything will come of it is, ol course, something that only time win tell. Bui there is something peculiarly hopeful about the effort, at any rate. Most of the international hatred that curses the world these days is kept alive by civilians.

Disillusioned though we may have been by dirigible tragedies in recent years, there IK nevertheless something attractive about this new proposal. For the big dirigible; is such a marvelously ingenious creation—such n clever and beautiful triumph over the elements—that it is very hard lo believe that we can never get any practical good out of it. : There must be some way in which these gimil airships can be made to render service which is worth their cost. It might be well worth Uncle Sam's while to put a little more money . inlo their development, and find out.
