WWH Pattern Q^'eij Brevier hj»s from Argentina with Mitettt'lUally Uie "same ttmclusicms about conditions there as Andrew Jackson ' Hitftfins brought back several months ago Both the Maine senator and the New Orleans -industrialist have nothing but praise foi President J>eron. Mi. Brewster doesn't go as far as Mi 1 Higgins did in extolling the Argentine president and attacking our official attitude toward him. But he does call our policy "schizophrenic," and lie presents General Peron as a n<an of energy and appatently peaceable intentions. T. It may seem foolish to take issue, at a distance of some 5000 mil»s. with Mr. Brewster's recent, first-hand ob- servotions. Yet we cannot forget all the factors that went into the generally accepted portrait of General Peron as a Fascist-type dictator with Na/i sympathies. We cannot foiget the charges of former Ambassadoi Bradcn, who spent consideiably more time in Aigentina than either Senator Biewster 01 Ah Higgms We cannot forget the State Department's White paper, ill-lirnei| us it was Noi can we forget the stpry of the Panrell-Peron dictatoiship, as told by American coi respondent 5 >n Argentina, v, ith the personal expci icrces of news snppiession, official diessings- down, and tliieats of violence We also are awaie ol how easily . a strong government can auangc for an. official guest to tsee only the right *nirtgs, talk with only the right people and cai.y awav p.ecisely the impression that the government wishes him to have So wr are reluctant to accept ?om- pietely Ml.

Rose carefully noted these sober counselings and would heed them. • • * Hp last leyt- days before the departure were very busy, but the morning of the day ilselt was dull, because everything had been done. Rose was ready in her navy b^e poplin traveling outfit, her trunk had. gone, her' suitcases vyere packed arid in the halj. A sense of strain prevailed, broken only by Mamm.a's asking every fi\e minutes whether. Rose had her ticket, her' billfold, cl.eiin handkerchiefs, , her" trunk check and the tablets to take if she'felt tralnsick Papa' wa^ put on his route this week and; would not be pre»ent to we the traveler off, but Mamma, Sidney and Hannah woul4 go to the station, arid JeH would, come from, the tank to say goodby.

Stepping back, funning herself with her hat, Sidney looked around at the other people commonplace all of them, starllnJ for prosaic destinations, catching this same train. » * * J^ND then she saw Ace I.atshaw. He was lounging against the metal grill which separated the platform from the tracks, a negligent posture, a sniile 'on his lips as he gazed past Sidney. "Ace!" she exclaimed, her heart unaccountably racing. His eyes flickered toward her, slopped. "Hello, Ace!" He didn't so much as nod, his eyes were blank. Straightening he swung on his heel ant! walked away. Sidney was astounded and irate 'Well, I'll be darned!" Hut if he thought she'd follow him, lie was mistaken. He could go (o the devil! Sidney turned, flounced through the Daughters, ami kissed Rose on the cheek. • "Have, a good time, Rosic!" The engine tootled and throbbed t . . "AH aboard!" "Goodby, Rose! Goodby!" The train puffed slowly down the track, with Rose waving from the rail of the observation car. The ride home in the Knrlc surrey seemed like dead silence after all that din. "I hope you're not sovry it wasn't you, Sid," said Uasil. "No, angel." "But you're not talking," "I'm meditating." She was meditating „„ Ace Lats.haw and the cut direct.
