Before he'd even had time to pul 'em up his wifi demanded opaque curtains for black_out purposes', H< kicked on the n, d d i t i onal in• vestment. Th*. missus reproached him bitterly foi falling to realize the gravity of th<3 national emergency. Next a whole delegation of members of his local ladies' defense organization descended on him at his place oi business and gave him hades, H> got tho blackout curtains all right. Irresponsible chopping down oi Japanese cherry trees on the capital's Potomac river waterfront continues. The park police watch the trees all they can, but the anti-Japs are too slick for 'em. They snoop onto ihe reservation o' 1 nights and go on with 'their amputating. There will bo no Jap trees left shortly. Gilbert and Sullivan's opera. "The Mikado," has fizzled but lii Washington and Baltimore theaters. It was scheduled, called oft when the real Mikado's bombers attacked our outposts, and then put back on the stage, on the f round, upon second thought, that such a prohibition was ridiculous. Audiences were too skimpy, though, to pay, and the few customers who did corne did so to hoot and catcall. Several German delicatessens around town and in its neighborhood have had to shut up shop— boycotted. The Italian shoe shinery I've been in the habit o.f patronizing has gone out of business.

However, if we think our plan for the semi-military registration of all Americaiv males between tho ages'pf 18 and 64 or 65 is anything unprecedented we're mistaken, Back in about the era of oUr own war of .secession, Dictator Lopuz of Paraguay, where I lived for a while a great deal later, got into a conflict with combined Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay, and his conscription limits were 12 to 70. He and nearly nit the rest of the men in tho country were exterminated. Returning to the subject of our troubles hero in th«j U. S. A., alcoholic prohibition is being incrqns- ingly urged—at lea.U prohibition'of hard drinks, An outstanding .opponent of this scheme is Dr J M, Doran, last would-be dry enforcer in the era when we did have prohibition—on paper.

To get into Washington from my home in a Virginia t suburb ordi« narily should take mc'approximate- !y 15 minutes. If I do it now in an hour and a half, in a supposedly fast buzx wagon.

Knox Trip Kept Secret Would it seem as if as high a mogul as Navy Secretary Knox could get as far from Washington as Honolulu before the gen- crality of folk in'the capital learned that he'd left it?
