A Lesson to Remember Elsewhere in this paper Joscpluis Daniels writes thai 20 years ago tonight, after hearing the cheers which greeted his'lnossaK* ".skint' !l (Icclara- lion of war against Germany, Wooclrow Wilson returned to the While House ami wept. His tears have been amply justified by subsequent events. For not, only did our entry into the World 1 War bring death and mutilation to hundreds of thousands of young Americans, as the president knew it would, but it failed utterly of the high objectives in which Woodrow Wilson and a great majority of the American people found justification for the decision of April 2, 1917. It is well to keep fresh the memory of 20 years ago. II may not be long before a similar situation will confront us. As Alexander Wopllcolt told bis radio listeners last night, not only did America fail of its declared objectives in the World War but -the apparent need of lighting for them may appear even greater when war breaks again in Europe. America must light, said Woodrow Wilson: "For democracy, for the right of those who submit to authority to have a voice in their own governments, for the rights and liberties 'of small nations, for a Universal dominion of right by such concert of i'ree powers as shall bring peace and safety to all nations and make the world at last free!" And so : we fought—and won. But what of democracy, and the rights and liberties of small nations, and tho universal, dominion of right? 'Shall \ve attempt the job again when next such an opportunity presents itself? Or shall we confine our energies to the I'.rotection and perfection of democracy, liberty and tho dominion of right within our own borders? Village Life New York's famed Greenwich Village is in rather a high dudgeon because of the way it was described in a booklet^ put out as a WPA federal writers' project. "Greenwich Village ..." said the blurb, "is the nation's greatest rash of art, literature, and temperament in the raw—where the artiest of artists meet to eat, drink and argue. On the checkered tablecloths of quaint retreats are plotted free verses, free lives and a free world." Prominent citizens have signed a petition to the president protesting that this was not a true picture of the Village. It is possible, however, thai , these people are rather late in their effort to present the Village in its true light, ov else they have an extensive campaign of public education before than. For it great many pro- and post-0. Henry iiulliors have succeeded in building up, in the minds of outlaudcrs, a conception of Greenwicii Village that coincide? rather remarkably with that of the WPA scribes. Nazificd Movies Jlerr Goebbcls, Germany's propaganda minister, has inaugurated a new system of grading' German films. Under ^his schedule, "politically valuable" movies without claim to artistic merit are to be graded higher than the artistically or culturally valuable Mini without political significance. If this means that German producers are to turn out more solely political pictures, to meet the approval of Reich leaders, one must sympathize with the German people. Radios and newspapers have been drumming Nazi ideology into them; now another avenue of entertainment may be used for the purpose. Since there can be too much of even a good thing, it is wondered if ilerr Goebbcls' latest move is a wise one. All propaganda and no entertainment may make Frits; a dull and dispirited SIDE GLANCES .

When they left til [able ho suggested they inspec the little row of shops in the hole There was a sports, shop, a go\v shop, a little jewelry shop in it- sell a jewel.

PHE cpcktail lounge was pink and, white and utterly modern, lartlia exclairned at the miniature a'bles and exciting murals. "This s clever," Neal agreed, "but not he real Monterey. The real M<m- crcy is the old Monterey—and the fishing. We'U see it after I've let his cocktail get in its work." And they did,. Ho showed her ,he old Spanish theater, and the government hpuse, and pointed out where Robert Louis Stevenson had ived. He took her along the venerable street of walled courtyards which had onc'e shielded Spanish joaulies from Ihc eyes of the curious. "And now," he told Martha, 'we'll go down to the wharves I'll show you fishermen who know low to fish—because it's in their alood. And we'll have a seafood lunch." "I don't," Martha pleaded, "like seafood lunches." Neal glared in mock severity. "You've never eaten one until you have done it in Monterey." Laler, in a cafe at the end of a dingy wharf, Martha was forced to agree. Beyond the window was the unbelievably bright blue of the Bay ot Monterey. Gulls swept down between,the wharf and the little fishing craft riding at anchor. Occasionally there drifted lo them the soft chugging of orfc of the little boats bound out down the bay.

'This is the best kind of rest— an active change." Though she lived to be a hundred, Martha would always rc- member that day as the most delightfully crowded one of her life. There was no denying Del Montc's spirit' ot, play^ pq - refusing the breathless beauty of cypress trees and ruggcrl coastline, of blue bay and red roofs, of quiet missions i and wild flowers.
