INTRIGUE UNDERMINES PEACE HOPES ABROAD Dneacy rumblings from below the surface of Europe Indicate that this U going to be a tense and nervous spring. The .German army, it is said, has been warned to be ready for any emergency, and the warning is being taken to heart by the people of Hungary. Czechoslovakia, and Austria—who figure, 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 new technic of conquest doesn't work that way. A modem dictator is just a shade more subtle. In each of the smaJl nations Just mentioned there is an active Nazi party. And if Hitler in his wisdom should aspire to gobble up one of these countries, it would be this local branch of Nazidom that would do the dirty work. Instead of invasion, there would be a rebellion—a swift, carefully- planned coup d'etat, financed and directed from abroad. The German army might Indeed mobilize, but it would mobilize simply as a warning, and not in the expectation of doing any actual fighting. Help would be given to the rebels, but it would be sub rosa, unofficial help of the kind that is being given the Rebels in Spain. As a 'picture of the danger thai Europe faces, this sort of thing is far more discouraging than preparations for outright declarations of war would be. For this is conquest by intrigue, by double-dealing by bribery, and by chicanery, and the mere suspicion of it is fatal to any hope for international harmony or domestic peace. How can you trust your neighbor if you suspect that he is subsidizing traitors in your own household? And how can you have even a pretense of democratic government if you suspect that one of your leading parties is serving the ends of a foreign enemy? What earthly chance does Europe have for a peaceful life if Ijhe moles are forever burrowing under the borders like that? A new internationalism is at work in the world today, .poisoning the very air that the people of Europe must breathe. There is the Fascis international and there Is the Communist International, each committed to interference with the affairs of its neighbors. War is taking on a new guise, with all the horrors ol civil conflict added to the horrors that are inherent in war itself. What hope is there for the peace of Europe, or even for the salvage • of European civilization, as long as this state of things endures? TAMPERING WITH TRUTH Se-versJ items in recent news prove again that foreign propaganda and censorship tend more toward the ridiculous than the sublime. . Fascist newspapers, for instance have claimed lamed "Buffalo Bill as a local boy. The Iowa-born plains hero, they reveal, was really a native of Barbigarezzo, Italy, and was "lull of Fascist courage ant daring." The other day a huge wave swepl over tht Italian liner Rex, killing two persons. Since Italian papers were ordered to print not a line oi the incident, it fa apparent tha' Duoe's subjects are to get the idea that «ven Neptune dares not be aggressive in the presence of anything Fasclstlc. And a Nazi news organ has produced with a flourish alleged evl- denot that tht rained liberal, Benjamin Franklin, was anti-Semitic This, happly. ia refuted by an Amer iwn authority on Fr*nWln. Mar* ».ppropri»t« terms for this would seem to be nonsense-worship , or impropergand'a. STIIA A WEATHER'VANE? Probably It was asking too much to oxptot th*t the Maine legislature would actually adopt the bill which ntyre New York, March 17 — They are getting some of the good old tear Jerking stuff back in the theater as relief from the highly scented smut that has passed lor sophistication lor several years. And even the hardened playgoers are eating it up and asking for more. Three ol the seasonal hits have been as plainly adorned* as the carpet covered brick door stop and as simple and oldfashioned u the hand-painted conch shell on the parlor mantle. Not a single reference to perversion or O. O. Melntyrt popping the name for which th« Greeks had word. The old formula never dies. Give a smart playwright a fellow drunk in the gutter Christmas night. His family home hungry and staring at the wall. A little church music sifting through the background and he can still break down the hardest hearts herded In a playhouse. Rose Stahl used to stand them up with the it-happened-to-me-but-it•won't - happen - to - my - little-sister theme. Even the modern Noel Coward rehawks the venerable cliche in his skit, "Family Album. The notion of the tyrannical father spoiling the daughter's life is always good. Fred C. Kelly recently was an over-night guest of a married friend whose wife was away visiting. Upon retiring, the host could not find the bed sheets so he bedded his guest between table cloths. And now Kelly says he will never sleep between regular sheets again. There was a reporter on a Cincinnati paper—his name escapes me—assigned to attend one of the recurrent feuds in a Kentucky burg. The hotel had only one tiny room left with a cot but no pillow. So he stuffed his hand satchel full of clothes and had the soundest sleep of his life. Whenever he had insomnia, he got out the grip, packed it and slept the clock around. At least so he said. Doctors declare that being uncomfortably pillowed has much to do with insomnia relief. Probably the most cultured and tiniest membership of any club in town is that of the Coffee House. It was the inspiration of the bon vivant Frank Crownlnshleld In 191J, Thousands pass daily without ever noticing it on West 54th street. There are only two medium-sized rooms with a single long table where members lunch and dine. The decorations are naive, consisting almost solely of Matisse dra-w< ings, the loan of the founder. The membership is a hand-picked list oi authors, writers, Journalists, playwrights, critics and a soupcon ol musicians and actors. Many refer to Jt as "The Little Savage" alter the quaint, old London club that is Wells' favorite. No dub is run so effortlessly and gets on so smoothly. There are no officers, no election committees, no speeches and no charge accounts. No mcmbei has ever been dropped and only at rare intervals and following a microscopic examination are new members added. Harriet Hughes, who recently made a bang-up survey of New York clubs for her Dad's Oetroil athletic club magazine, finds that the oldest and purely social club In Manhattan is the Union, occupying an elegant edifice on upper Park avenue, and the snobbiest is the 55- year-old Knickerbocker, where the accent is all on family, and which is famous for its cellar, noted che] and high percentage of military service. In the days when the hoity-toity clubs were all on the avenue the old Tories, occupying their window chairs watching the 5 o'clock parade, were a fixed picture in the metropolitan scene. And the target for much spoofing on the part of Life, Judge. Puck and other fun-poking feullitons of that day The 5 o'clock parade belongs to a vanished era and the swell clubs have moved over east to Park. One of the mlrrory mid town dog shops has a decoy. A frolicsome Cairn whose energy I? Inexhaustible. U a passer-by comes to Uic window he rushes up with friendly barks and tail wags. If the passerby taps the window, the dog paws back. Of course, almost everyone wants him. But once Insdde, It Is explained lie Is not for sale. He belongs to the proprietor—but there ore other fine pups. And often the decoy lands a sale. Incidentally, a de luxe cat shop to be called The Puss Parlor U to open on upper 5th EASTER FASHION NOTES FROM ABROAD avenue shortly. Prices from $50 to $1,500. Sudden thought: It strikes me that things started going wrong hi this country about the time singers began ending their songs on those off key notes. (Copyright 1937, McNaught Syndicate, Inc.) BY BRUCE CATTON You might say that "Meet Yourself as You Really Are," by William Gerhard! and Prince Leopold Loewenstein (Lippincott), is a questionnaire to end all questionnaires. For it is certain that If you sit down prayerfully with it and answer all of its impertinent questions, you will never again be phased by any little thing like an income tax or civil service examination blank. The authors' idea seems to have been that every man can be his own psychologist, if he knows the right questions to ask himself. So here are the questions—page upon page of them delving deep into your past, dragging out your private thoughts, and forcing you to say "yes" or "no" to things you wouldn't even tell your best friends. You begin harmlessly enough, with a set of a dozen or so little queries about your childhood, parr entage, and youthful daydreams. Then, If you have answered most of these questions in the affirmative, you Jump to another set. From them you go to another and so on. In the end you have told all, and your automatic psychologist grinds out its Judgment upon you. Me, I found that I was the creative type, sadly frustrated by circumstances but still due to create something deathless some day. Very fine. It all makes a fairly amusing way of filling in an odd hour or so. You could have a lot of fun with it at a party, if you could Just per- 'suade people to answer all the questions . . . which, everything con- sldered, you probably can't. The National Whirligig News Behind the Neva. WASHINGTON By Kay Tucker on a p]orida vacation, White House Secretary Early Issued orders barring visitors from crossing the threshold leading to the anteroom oHice of his girl stenographer. No explanation was given, and it was attributed to a desire for privacy in the midst ol pre-vacatlon . labors. Mr. Early, however, simply sought to protect himself Irom the embarrassment he suffered when his booming voice carried to the outer chamber. It seems that a high New Deal official and personal friend of the President wanted to confer with "Steve." In announcing the request,, Mr. Early's stenographer left the intervening door half - open. She expected that the guest would be immediately summoned inside. But to her and the official's amazement there came the audible reply: "Tell him I don't want to see him!" What makes it worse is that the victim, who is an extremely sensitive fellow, sailed for Europe next day, and cables don't furnish a diplomatic medium for explanations. H-arllinfMl _ New Chief of Headlines StoB Malin Craig has held a series of conferences on ways and means of dramatizing the army through peppier publicity. It has always grieved the military that their navy rivals capture gaudier headlines, which often can be cashed in the fonn of larger appropriations on Capitol Hill. The War Department saw a line chance to crash the front page. when its "flying fortress" was placed on demonstration at Boiling Field across the Anacostia River from the Capital, Two ships of the same type had cracked up after being turned over to army aviators, and a three-day demonstration of the surviving plane was scheduled. House and Senate appropriations 1927-Ten Years Ago-1937 THIS DAY WAS THURSDAY A birthday dinner for Mr. Leon Louis, Tuesday evening, proved a delightful success, the affair given at his home with Mr. and Mrs. Meyer Louis, Mrs. Leo Louis, Mr. Rapheal Louis, Miss Rose Louis, the Misses Helen and Ruth Louis. Messrs. Samuel and Ralph Louis and Mr. and Mrs. Sam Rebel as guests. Mrs. Cooper Ayres will go to Memorial hospital on Friday morning for a tonsil operation. Mrs. Charles D. Nichols entertained her bridge club on Tuesday afternoon at her home on Caldwell street when guests were Mrs. George O. Richardson of Sewickley, Pa.. Mrs. William Freshour and Mrs. J. R. Caywood. Mrs. C. L, Hinsch and Mrs. Harry Amstrong received the prizes for first and second high scores, with a gtirst favor for Mrs. Richardson. The club meet* in two weeks with Mrs. Wllllnm Ramsey. Mrs. Alfred W. French took Mrs. Henry Kampf to Dayton in her car Wednesday. Miss Ruth Rogers, Mrs. Carroll A. Ross, Mrs. c. F. Ridenour and Mrs. George A. Flesh will motor to Cincinnati Friday morning in the Rogers' car to spend the day. The many friends of M^s Stella Ziegenfelder, who • has been ill at her home on North Main street, will be glad to learn that she is now able In sit up nwliile each day. As a farewell for Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Blotner and their children, Dorothy, Emma and John, who will be moving to Plqua from Troy in the near future, a dinner was arranged Wednesday evening by Mrs. Albert Gross of Troy. Mrs. Walker Wagner, Mrs. Theodore Norr and Miss Freda Chapman motored to Sidney Tuesday and attended the annual inspection of the Eastern Star lodge. Twenty-Five Years Ago IHII DAY WAS SUNDAY bigwigs were: Invited to sit at the controls, and to bring their wives and children. They did. But when newspaper reporters and photographers • arrived at the Held, they were shooed away by a hard-boiled major and his aides, They didn't want any stories or pictures. When General Craig, who once served in the same regiment with Hugh Johnson, heard of the incident, his blankety-blanks rattled the windows and chandeliers Now he knows what's wrong with army publicity. -— Joseph P. Kennedy to Washington ostensibly to get the new Maritime Commission- off to\a flying start— which he can do with one freckled fist tied behind his back — but actually he has a far more important assignment. He will serve as F, D, R.'s handy man In the extremely critical months ahead The red-headed Bostonian motes in the inner circles of political, economic and religious groups which are slowly shying away from the New Deal. Few men boast more friends on Capitol Hill than the likable, breezy financier,. whose. dinners while he chairmaned the S. B C. won Congressional hearts — an< stomachs. It is estimated that he may be good for ten votes 1 at leas' hi the Supreme Court and other conflicts. "Joe" also claims the friendship of "economic royalists' and the hierarchy of the Catholic Church. He's an arch-diplomat and may wind up In an embassy abroad. . He protested vigorously against returning to Washington, which meant absence from his large family. But he agreed to enlist again after President Roosevelt voiced a "purely personal plea" that his services were sorely needed right now. Foreign "feelers" that President Roosevelt call a world peace conference could not have been put forth at a more, inappropriate time. His dip^ lomatic advisers here and abroad have cautioned him against any formal intervention. European nations, as if deliberately, have ruffled American feelings so that popular and political sen- tirnent^-which F. D. R. .has sounded—favor almost complete isolation. Great Britain and Italy, for instance, forced the abdication of two figures which captured the average American's Imagination — Edward and Halle Selassie. Japanese naval espionage as disclosed in the Farnsworth trial shocked Washington higher-ups. Ambassador Bonnet's resort to the radio to "explain" his monetary spats with Secretary Morgenthau didn't exactly warm the cockles of that sensitive gentleman's heart. Moscow's treason trials. Hitler's venomous attacks on Mayor La- Guardia and Spanish strife offer no basis, in official American opinion, for a political flirtation or holding hands across the sea. As a veteran diplomat phrases it, "All the good neighbors seem to have moved away." I , nlQn _ New Deal legalites imon have cxhura(!d what they consider as classic proof of their contention that old age may mellow a man's memories but hard- on his Judicial arteries. Oddly, their Exhibit No. 1 is that fine old Democrat—the late former Chief Justice White of Louisiana. In 1804 he Joined with tt* late Justice Holmes jn dissenting from a majority opinion which held unconstitutional a New York law on minimum hours ol labor. At that time Justice White was U years old. In WATERLOO MET IN THE COURT ISSUE BY MR. PRESIDENT Masses Art Believed Against the Program Despite 27-Million Vote Mandate Givtn FDR. Bl' tOV SCHNEIDER New York, March n - When rrankUn Delano Roosevelt was sworn Into office on March *, IMS' u President of the united States, the country's speculative, interests rembled- from head to toe. Now hat four years have passed and President Roosevelt Is letting launched on his second term, how do hese people feel? They regard P. D. R. as a "has been" and have no ear of his Ner Deal policies. Why? Because, of his fight against the Supreme Court. They do admit he U a popular President. They even concede that he could have finished his second term in a blaze of glory.' But, they say, when he started the .battle for revising the Supreme Court he met his Waterloo. This group of observers likens F. D. R. to President Wilson. Wilson would have gone down in history at a great .President, had he not run into a Waterloo -with his battle for the League of Nations. On that issue the Senate fought, him tooth, and nail. The same it expected of Mr. Roosevelt's Supreme Court tight. Checking through-.- brokerage, newspaper and business facilities reveals to speculative interests that the people as a whole ate. against the proposed Supreme Court revision. This—It U tuned—despite th« 2T,000,OOa vote mandate of last November.- The people are deserting Mr. Roosevelt in order to keep the Supreme Court suprme. Proof that speculative interest* don't worry about Mr. Roosevelt's strength was had on the day following the President's "victory dinner" address which was broadcast to the nation. One. of the points he especially emphasized was cheaper power throughout the country. That would ordinarily have brought on a, rush to dump utility shares. What did happen? The whole group advanced after having • acted badly for several day* prior to the talk. Wall Streeters say -that the present wave to increase- wages doesn't result from President Roosevelt's efforts. Business-heads are catering to labor In the belief that price advances will offset the. Increased wage cost 'AND that it .will be a fine way to get into the good graces of labor. They hope in this way to forestall another Democratic victory in 1938. Money and business interests are playing the game rather shrewdly They believe that contented working men will elect a Republican •House in 1938. If such a body is set up beside the Supreme Court— and they, expect the court to remain as it is—President Roosevelt Will be stymied any way he turns. Here's another reason why the so-called money changers don't fear Mr. Roosevelt: They feel the Securities Exchange Commission has shown that it fears a test of its constitutionality by it! failure to prosecute the two-year-old Meehan manipulation charges. Besides, not a thing is being done in other similar cases outside of holding a lot o] hearings and collecting a lot of testimony. No, the speculative interests el the country aren't- at all perturbed about New Deal threats. -Why should they be—they ask—when, the public is again speculating wildly and buying any old, cat or dog Jn an at- tempt.to get rich quick? The boom in security prices which has been running some, thirty months is-attributed, to the administration's policies. When market prices collapse—all .wild rushes end that way —the blame will be shoved over to the President. How will that be done? Brokers will say that they have been under the strict supervision of the Securities Exchange Commission. Specu- lative'interests will say the same All will argue that the New Dea created an artificial boom in money and business conditions—that the administration started fears of inflation. They will say that those who did manipulate securities were never fined or convicted. They will say a hundred other tilings. In fact they are saying so this very day. Confident that the Supreme Court will always stand by the good old Constitution, the Big Boys of business and finance don't fear President Roosevelt. So the speculative interests are having a grand and glorious time. And when the various security, commodity and business markets do crash they know that they will not be "unjustly" accused. Op (Concluded oa Pag* Nine) Barbs A film actress has had her tonsils removed. It .is not noticeable however, as the patient was not Martha Raye. Twin lambs, born on a Sullivan Ind., farm, had crimson wool. Possibly Nature's effort to speed the revival of red flannels. The California centenarian, who credits garlic-and-onlon diet for hit longevity, seems a hot prospect for a salesman ol "Live Alone and Like It." In a Chicago murder case, police are on the trail of a thin man but have not, as yet, found it necessary to call in William Powell.

AHkMCh K (kaftttM* *•*•« tht lt*t pre-ChriitntM shopping rush and *« didn't hear It until today, it'll bear r«peatln|. Anyway it really happened. A friend of ouri was a passenger 'aboard a crowded elevator In a New York depart, mt-nt store. Next to b«r wu a young woman with a smill boy, apparently around four years old. in front of them was a large, dignified, Important- looking elderly man; next him an oveniie middle-aged woman. Suddenly, and without-a word of warning, the middle-aged dame turned and bopped the man right square In the face. He was evidently stunned half silly but dldrtt say a word. When the operator stopped the elevator at the next floor, both slapper and slapped left the car and disappeared in opposite directions. It wa.« following their departure that the small boy remarked to his mother: "I'm glad that old dame got out. When .she crowded against me a minute ago I bit her." And we suppose to this day, the elderly gentleman . doesn't know what occasioned- his slapping and. the middle-aged to- man still thinks he -pinched her. th« National inventor* con- grtu, says that what this country needs I* » dtodflton exterminator and a -method el eliminating under-the-bed fluU and when they get those Invented, they e»h wcrk'on an •MJ «*?
