Intrigue Undermines Peace Hopes Abroad Uneitsy rumblings from Ijclow I he surface of Europe uulicntcs thill tin's is going lo be a tense and nervous spring. The German army, il i.s said, has been warned to be rea'dy for any enior- . gcncy, and the warning is being taken to heart by the people of- -Hungary, Czechoslovakia, iiiid Austria—who lig- life, naturally enough, that any activity .of the German army is more than likely'to be directed at them. But despite these rumors, there is little belief that any actual invasion is contemplated. The now Icchnic of conquest doesn't work that way, A modern dictator is just a shade more subtle. In each of the small nalions just mentioned there is an active Nazi ' party. And 'if Hitler in jus wisdom shoujd aspire lo gobble up one of these countries, it would bo this local branch of Nimdom that would do the dirty work. Instead of invasion, there would he a rebellion-^' swift, carefully-planned coup d'etat, financed «)i<l directed from abroad. The German urniy' niight in, deed mobilize, but it would mobilize simply as a warning, and not in (he expectation of doing any acliwl lighting. Help would be given lo the rebels, but., it .would be sub rosn, unofficial help, of the kind that is being given the rebels in Spain. / f^As a picture of the danger Hint Europe faces, this sorl of thing in far more discouraging th im preparations for outrijflil declarations of war would be. For-this is cont|uost by intrigue, by double-dealing, by brib- . cry, and by chicanery, and the mere suspicion of it is fatal to any hope for international harmony or domestic peace. x How can you trust your neighbor if you suspect that he it, subsidizing traitors in your own household? And how can you have even a pretense of democratic government if you suspect ahai one of your leading parties is serving the ends of a foreign enemy? What earthly chance does Europe have for a peaceful life if the moles arc forever burrowing under the borders like that? _ A tiew internationalism is at work m the world today, poisoning [he very Jin- that the people of Europe must breathe. < There is tljo Faacjst jjjtorjia- lignal and there is the Communist international, each committed to -iiUeiv fcrejice with the affairs of'its, jielgh- bors. War is taking on a new guise, ' with all the horrors of civil conflict added to Uio horrors that are inherent in war llsojf. . • What hope is there for the peace of Europe, or even for the salvage of European civilization, as long as this slate of tilings endures? '/ E -(AUK,)- cot/nifiu NEWS Henpecked The henpecked husbiipd is a figure as old in human annals as the institution of marriage itself; but it has remained for Heir Hitler's government in Germany, with its customary ingenuity, to present an .entirely new .slant, on him. The Supreme Administrative Court of Prussia lias just ruled that a .man who lets himself be henpecked' by his wife i.s not lit to hold office' ill the Prussian stale. A', slate official who. hat! been notoriously dominated by his good frau has been, under this edict,' deprived of his job— sent home, prcr sti'mably, to make what explanation he can to his dominant helpmate. Now this ruling has its points, if a man ,cnn'f, ndc his own home, ),pw can Ijc ;-ule a state:? The answer seems obvious . . . until -you 'reflect that such. a superlative statesman as Abraham; l.mcoln was one of Uie most hen- peeked mortals in' all i9th century America. • • Week-End Penalties One of llm worst 'dilpmjnas . wilh which a judge has to contend arises when'lVo is compelled to sentence, for a shout term, a person who is not a criminal at heart, for a minor infraction of the law, , Justice demands that the offender he jailed for a period; and yet this penalty automatically may carry with it a greater one—loss of, his job. In Eochestor, N. Y., n law is Wig tried out-that may erase this problem. It calls for "week-end" .sentences. A" man arrested for intoxication, f«r example, may be'ordered to spend the following three Saturdays and Sundays in the county jail, ]„- Diis .way, he is punished, and yet undergoes no risk of the loss of ; hi s job or earnings. If the plan is successful,: it j s said, legislation will bo drawn to make it applicable in other com)mmilies. It seems to be an experiment that law authorities generally might do well to study. : .. been hearing myself called "Jean Valjcan" since this case broke n week ago Now, I'd like to know who this fellow was aiitl lead the book. -Terrancc Camion, Pittsburgh One of Hie Implication* of'censorship Ls the concept that there are a few. strong-minded, Intelligent people who can view any picture.

Hydrophobia Could Be EliuiinaLcd With Propei Public Cooperation (No. IG1) BV I1K, MOUIUS FISIIBEIN' EdIUir, Journal of Ihe American Medical Association, and of llygcb, the Health Sl.igaiiiic In July. 1885, more than 50 years ngo, the famous French scientist, Louis Pasteur, gave the lirsl Pasteur treatment, to a human being, to control the condition called rabies, or hydrophobia. Today we know that this disease could be eliminated wilh scientific, methods. If complete public cooperation., could be obtained. Hydrophobia seldom, if ever, np- pcars in Great Britain because of proper use of the Pasteur method arid because of a quarantine on dogs and other animals which may be brought into the country. * • » Pasteur made his discovers' 1" a relatively simple manner. He knew that the virus which causes this disease, attacks (he nervous systcin. He took the brnin of a dog that hud died of hydrophobia and injected some of this material under the skin of oiher animals, which then developed the disease. Pasteur felt Mire then that the brain of the infected animal contained Ihe poison. After, trying to weaken this .Mison 'so thai tt could be injected inlo a human being, to give him the disease in a mild form—as for example, vaccination does hi smallpox—he finally arrived'at the procedure now used. Material from the nervous system was dried in a tube ,•,„<( kc ,, t that way for some time When that material was injected into a (tog into which later was injected some infectious material from n mad dog, the dog lo which the preventive material had been yivcn did not gel (lie disease. / The .first annual experiments wore completed in May. 181. and were then confirmed by other scientists. Several months later the method was used on ;\ boy named Jean Baptislc Dupille who hart saved tcveral children from being attacked by a mad dog and had been severely bitten while cio- i"S it. The boy lived, and a monument in his honor was erected in front of Ihe Pasteur Institute in Park. Throughout the world there arc few monuments erected cither to doctors who have made discoveries that have saved thousands of lives, or ( 0 patients who have helped (he doctors in their work. ! The one for Jean Baptiste Dupilic I Is Probably the only one of its kind. m:(;l\ IIUHC3 TODAY AVIii'n IIAI'IIM; JIURTT took «vr rouuisrr aimer, JKXStlfKn, jiuJi-r Jtuutl it, U j, clYiirl lo Ijumch IJIT OH a MHci'c^rul cim'cr In \c»v Vi>rJi, illmcultlrs liinue,llntr(y "runt; liL'ttvi'i.n tr lL . <u», Jennifer "•Mfulnl :i uy M, r |, Inlcrcat mid Vrojn|i||^ aelli-il l).<iiil;nr. • ,,.,?. t ' 1 ' iHillilicU lo rlonn 1V I|U UU;KJ:H MXSI, i;v, wuiiiii,- ninj- ''y>', iiua ivimht liuvi; luid HOI "upline K(«|iiii>il.||ii> :in':ilr.

Jennifer slopped and glanced the blue-covered papers in her hpnd. Daphne, silting cross-legged on the floor, said, "No! A thousand "times Nol Look, Jennifer^ you're only going to tell him that the boss has changed his mind about firing him. lie isn't your lover! You aren't yoing lo tell him he's been left a fortune and the word Oh is not -in (he script. Tnke that transcendent light out oJ your C3'cs. Now come back lo the nght entrance and do it again." Jennifer looked dubious for a minute and llicn did as she was fold. "Much belter," Daphne pronounced. "And you're letter per- frct in your lines. There's only one otliin- little thing: when you J!et to (he door, open it willi your left hand. Don't, make a complete (urn wild your back to the audience when you open, the duor." Jennifer blew out her breath and slipped of! her .negligee. "Daphne, you're wonderful, lloadley" -Hoadlcy was the director ot Apple Blossoms,' the Hcrzbcrg production—"asked me where I'd piekcct up that piece of business with the,tea-cup yesterday," "It's tun, isn't, it?" Daphne said wistfully. "Yes. Oh, soy Daphne," Jennifer snki behind a yawn, while her alert eyes measured her sister, "Tuck is back. I'm meeting him for cocktails tomorrow. Daphne felt as though she had stepped through a hole in the ice. "I thoujjht I laid down the law about cocklails?" 'And about TucJr, foo, didn't you?" Jennifer said wilh an unpleasant smile. 'Sometimes I think I'll give up, but listen, Jennifer, I've more influence with Tuck than you have and I'm going to tell him that I don't want him seeing you," "It wouldn't surprise me a bit if you did," her sister answered. "But if I were you I wouldn't Iry." Daphne set her mouth in a line as straight as Jennifer's. "Let's both go to bed. We're tired and fhis heal is gelling on, our nerves. You open in Philadelphia next Monday, don't you?" DAPHNE stared inlo the hot silence of the night, long after Jennifer had gone to sleep, until she convinced herself that Jennifer had only meant to tease her when she had taunted her about Tuck. But since she couldn't be sure (hat Jennifer really had gotten over Tuck, she was determined to appeal to Tuck • once more not to see Jennifer. She'd do it even if islio liad to pretend hat she herself was interested in ntn. She made a uolc to telephone inn and ask him to take her -for cocktails the following afternoon. It slipped her mind that next lay. Too many other things hap- >ened. . . * * * T clown, Miss Bretl." Mr. Johnslone, president of the Johnslone Advertising' Agency vai-cd her inlo a chair that was' nuch too big for her. He leaned across (lie big desk nnd regarded her thoughtfully Daphne made herself sit still and vondered if her lipstick was a ittle too red. "Nice work you've done on the Jeorgian line." The Georgian line was the merchandise of a cosmetic house, one of tftc accounts that Daphne had developed. "Oh, thank you, Mr" Johnslone." "Hammet and I have been la 1k- 1)3 over your proposed campaign n department stores and the tour ,-oit planned in the 'presentation.
