But we've pledged ourself to write the column whether in the mood or not - . . ,Oh - hhhhh! This self disciplin ing is rather costly . (Well, we've made no promise that we'd publish everything we write, how ever. Something cue ior wnicn you might be profoundly grateful!)

Or - this is all the columning we'd do this week! r - Off to the Shore But we're slightly ahead of our 'story. ' The trip to the shore was as un - expected as the possibility of a run "up to Atwater seemed remote to us. We had gone up to Marion's to play cards and meet the Wheatley sisters, Nannette and Lucy Belle. tt Owensboro, Ky, who were visit - lng their sister Mrs. Lennert Roberts (erstwhile Antonla) and were that evening gathered about the bridge tables in the Turner living room ... with John Hester.

Then downstairs to listen to renditions by Nannette ... Then. too. Mrs. Turner is an arresting book reviewer . . . Not to mention the tact that everyone present insisted upon Marlon and John executing their little duet . . . and Marlon did oblige by singing the pretty theme song which these "two composed together, and which is being broadcast, and played by TCarlie Gaines' orchestra at the HShow Boat . , . . also which Vance SChavis had recorded for his treasure chest . . . bringing Marion's .5Vpice within range although the - road between here and Greensboro is a mighty long one! . . .

Wonder ish for all his "sophistication All of which brings us to a rather late hour and the young hostess' belief that we'd be much safer snuggled up in one of ! the twins, in one "third floor front. - . . . Ana anyhow we wanted to talk about thinn . . About "things," .uoug: not persons . i . (Altho we. did learn that Dr. r. U. stuons nas precisely the same initials as some one else weve met!) Where Are We? 'N so we talked until : our theme was exhausted, then we read news papers and magazines Medical, and Soviet Russia, and saw where Theodore Dreiser predicts (altho it takes no great prophet any longer to foretell the trend of the nations' mind) a war a description of which is beyond all power of hu man conception. Frances "Franz Josef" was merely the faint sound of a tocsin struck from afar . . . but7 its echoes will ring down into the first cannon's mouth! . . . And all of this is forecast if ! and "in case!" But there are no "ifs" and "in - cases." it's just a question of time, and a comparatively short time at that! ; "When self the wav ering balance shake, 'tis rarely right adjusted." until some grand and complete upheaval reduces all alike to a state of exhaustion, if not insensibility . . . Then we may regain consciousness and our bal ance and "see things aright." and set them right! . . . - If for no other reason (that is. discounting Japan's imperialistic ambitions, and India's state of "passive resistance," and sundry other con tributary factors and abetting forces) it would be perfectly human for the rest of the nations to resent America's com - plaisent and smooth countenance. . . Its face without a scar! Un less, of course, . you except its Al Capones, its Lindbergh scandal, its bitter prejudices. Its lynchings, its polluted political system.! its B. EL F, warfare, its state of utter dejec tion among the unemployed . But these are all self - inflicted. It has suffered none of the tortures and degradations of the; war - torn territories. Still its own internal strife is rendering it physically, mentally and morally incapable of combatting a sudden outside on slaught,' and i of l building up a proper defense mechanism . . . Certainly the foreign powers are not blind. Theyve been making visits to this country those shrewd, polished diplomats and ministers of good - will . . . Those darker - skin ned statesmen upon whom white America looks down from a lofty (but now crumbling peak). Well, we awoke Sunday morning to chin for a couple more hours before breakfasting on flaky hot biscuits and light, fluffy muffins and wot - not of Mrs. Turner's own recipes . . " . and having' Dr. Turner suddenly suggest a trip to the shore ... Apparently, for him to suggest, is to act upon it; for, up he went for his sport Oxfords et cetera . - . this being about the wind - up of his vacation J, . . Meanwhile, ' during our early morning confab, Marion j had unearthed a HtUe quotation; she had jotted down and thinking we might like it offered us a copy. (The gesture spoke for itself, and sufficed for us!) j Come to think of It, it, might' fit right in here! i We've taken j the liberty to caption it: . TO A FRIEND j "Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort, of .feeling safe with a person, having neither, ;to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all out. chaff and grain together, certain that a faithful hand will take them! and sift them, keep what is worth' keeping; and. with a breath of 'kindness. diow tne rest away. But we haven't left for the shore ! We're off. We made good time going aown and better coming back . . . . - . . Wending our way through traffic along Indiana avenue, we encountered the veteran newspaperman Thomas W. Swann who "tipped us off" the Upshurs were returning from Europe. ! Going down to the beach we encountered and met Mrs, Charles Shipley, of Baltimore: Dr. and Mrs. Lawrence Christmas and greeted once again the Henry Lindseys whom we met when in Pittsburgh and who were guests of the Christ - mases: Dr. Edward Scott and his two cute youngsters, and Dr. Chauncey Harllee. and his young pride . . - the William Faulkners. of Atlanta and their three children. William. Jr.. Josephine arid Marie; Mrs. Faulkner's mother. Mrs. Elizabeth Cook and sister. Marie. You will recall this adopted Georgian as ths former Bessabele Cook . . . If our mem'ry serves us aright, the Cook - Faulkner romance is of the clay courts . , ; Mr. Faulkner, who waa then connected with southwest Y. M. C A., was tennis instructor, and when he called "40 love!" we thought he was talking about the game, and we betcba that readr "4Q.. Love!" . . . Broad and Christian, where the Broadway A.

T'was rather intriguing . . . not so much the eclipse, as was the effect. . Seeing afternoon Boston turned into twilight within a few minutes. Odd, very much so. And the pedestrians doing their best to get; squashed completely under roving cars . . . standing in the middle of the street squinting through smoked glass . . . as if you couldn't see the show just as well from the sidewalk. Hah! Some people! ' j . One thing - the eclipse did for us was to tangle our phone wires ... so many wrong numbers! Imagine dialing 7893 and getting 3360! If that isn't tangling, we don't know which is! . ) Things are skidding along as well as can be expected. Quiet, serene lovely . . . reminds us of that long trek between New York and Jamaica ... so gorgeously smooth . . . says more than , one "Oh, for a hurricane!" We could have wished last year's trfp on them, only we'd have shared the horrors of it too ... so we didn't wish. Funny thing about wishes . . . they always come back on the wisher . . . if they're bad wishes. Had 9 most interesting chat with T. Gould's younger brother t'other day. Howard has just come from Southern California where he's been attending school . . , graduated In June, the U. of S. C and his he wild about the Golden state! And the U. . . . and the students!

Hilda Proctor was along too and George Goodman of the Urban League. It was our first contact with Bahaism . . . so we list.od well and learned quite a bit. The group has a large tract of land up there, with an Inn and several cottages, as well as a Fellowship house that is just too ducky for words. We Just fell in lov9 with its antique furnishings and the natural wood paneling . . . and the huge fireplace, yellow curtains . . and casement windows. There are I half dozen or so bedrooms upstairs over." the main room . . and a huge porch overlooking the White mountains and a gorgeous deep blue lake. A very wealthy convert to Bahaism left the whole thing to the cause and each year the members come there from all over the world to confer and exchange thoughts. During the afternoon meeting, various members of the Boston group spoke J . . as well as a few visitors who ' were also making their first trip to the conference. Among the speakers were Dr. T. EA.
