And ils - secrets will be guarded jusl as cnre- I'tilly, at least for a time, as llicy wore -- when ntomic energy was (lie Army's special responsibility. Until the 'question of intemnlkmal - control i.s settled there can he little - thought of a rlra.slic chanjfe in the . present system of security, whether I- the men in charge are dressed in yrav ',. tweed or khaki twill. Yet there seems ;; little doubt that the transfer of the - whole matter of atomic research to - civilian hands has the approval of ;i majority of Americans. One reason is that the change, •-while neither lessening; our strength nor giving away our secrets, indicates to the world a tangible change in our • attitude. The Army remains on call in case of emergency. Out ils release of "control is evident fljat our commitment, to the peaceful uses of atomic energy is more than an oral pledge. Likewise, (\\e< responsibility for the future of this force lies now whore it belongs. The atomic bomb was (he creation of scientists who directed the lessor and, for a time, unknowing skills ^ of ordinary men and women. Now scientists have a direct hand in directing the energy ol' this holocaust into other channels. With them are men whose .previous lack of national fame and political connection is in itself an encouragement. - Most of all, perhaps, civilian con; trol has public approval because the ; -public has reason to believe that a man ; in a (weed coat is inclined to think : differently than a man ih an Army jacket. There are already certain facts - about aiiicleai- fission, discovered Ijy the : Manhattan Engineering District,'that ' can be released safely to the world's scientists. Technically, some of these facts, already have been released. Hut „- -eomiblaiiits have _bcen heard that even information has not been extri- ciU«<l from military red Inpe and mili- l:U'y bottlenecks. All tliis lends to arouse public impatience and jipiirulicnsion.

VIEWS OF OTHERS Testimony to Religion Out of Germany, comes Icstlhiony to Hie value of rcliulon as a solace In trouble, and n steadying .social force. The testimony Is volc':d by :i prominent Cicrmun communist leader, ICr- svln Kckert. lie was ediicnted for Die ministry, and juinnil ihe Socialist parly in 1011. becoming leader ;ji its religious department lor nil Cjerrniiny. In the 19UO'.s. when the Nnzls began their rise to power Eckcit switched to the Communist.;, thinking they were the only group strong enotit;:i to .stop the Hitler gang. He was sent to a con- ccnlration camp, and when freed, he relumed actlvcy to Ihe Communist party. Eckert reasoned that the misery In Ocrinan.v would result in a heavy Communist vole in the recent elections. Hut it didn't, in his paiv of Germany the Communists got only seven per cent of Ihe vole.s. And Eckert explained Hi.; defeai, thus, as reported by a Christian Selene-Monitor writer from Germany. We though the people would vote for a planned way out of their distress, which Hi.. Communists presented. Now we know the people "do not vote by thinking, but only as they were trained," which means, he added, "tli,,t the Christian Sociullsis dominate the field." That, tribute to religious training is no less stron;; for lh c .susKC.sion of a sneer in the words Men sneer nt whal (hey camiot understand ami tbe pnynn mind of Communism can neve,- .in ocrslnmt how religion rall t ,,mblc a human be- fidem° n"' C " 1C ' S '°"" K ° r " ffl w ' th <ll " (:l< co "- llutwiser men have ); nderstood.

The lamp in the parlor •wis lighted and Sidney was slccp- i;>£ ;« a chair. Puzzled, .left stood .pv<-r her, looking do-.vii and think< r -£ '-hat Flic \v:rs sor.ieiiaw very Appealing so, her hesc!

If he had not forsworn such things he would have liked lo sketch her in this pose and call the sketch "A Sleeping Beauty," for Sidney was really beautiful—not, of course, as Rose •was, all peaches and cream and perfection, but with a kind of lean, vigorous symmetry. She had good bones. AvTake, she was often too vigorous, too emphatic for beauty; bnt softened by repose her eyes closed— ~ ' J She opened her eyes. "Hello?" 1 Jeff pointed his thumb toward the ceiling. "Everybody else hit the hay? • She nodded. "I've got something to tell you." And without further comment she handed him a letter. He read in silence: Dew Miss Cameron: We are interested In your •brother's pictures. We iilau to launch in the near future a coasl- to-coast campaign to publicize our products, not Ihe leasl of which is Spunky Mule ring, the tobacco your brother has so amusingly ex- H«4, If, as yon say, Mr. Jcffcr- D»vis Cameron is seeking a lUon as a commercial artist, w» naffest lhat he come to our N*w York offices September 19 a»4 ctattr with our advertising ' H fa,quite possible that we may 1»T» » place on onr staff for in of such marked origl op.

"They were good, I thought' ;omebody ought to see them." "And now somebody has So that's that." "It sounds like an offer of a lob, JefT. Maybe a better job than Ihe contest." "Certainly it's a better job. Any diot would know thnt. In New York, right in the center of everything? A job of jobs." He scowled ind threw down tbe leller. "Well L can't go." ' "No," Sidney said. "You can'l" He stared, annoyed that she should assent so quickly when he was steeled for argument. He paced the length ot the room, turned and said ehallcnginglv "I m needed here. Mamma would have a fit." "No not Mamma," Sidney said, hhc knows she can't keep us together always. She's not having a nt about Rose's gelling mnrricd lapa would be against it—until ho found lhat you could contribute as much as before to the family budget."

Not a darned bit." 'Neither have I. Bill we can get the money," Sidney said, "if we have to. Somebody in this Ism- My must have a little laid by Papa—" , ' "No, don't count him in. That's why I'm strapped. I did have fifty dollars, but I lent it to Papa." "Wluil?" Sidney said. "What!" He told her, and couldn't see why Papa's borrowing should excite her so, making her look while and scared, sending her flouncing down the room (o the window where she stood with her back to him. "Listen, Sid—" He stopped. Rose was coming in. "Well, what do you want?" JefT said rudely. * * * JJOSE had on bathrobe and slippers, and was yawning. "I heard you mullering down here.' It woke me. Hours ot muttering. Is anything wrong?" ~t.,~v , t JcIT gave her the tobacco company's letter; she carried H to the lamp, stooping lo read. - •"Oh, JcIT. darling! You're going? I'm so glad!" He grinned cautiously. "Don't bo too glad yet. H may not pnn out." "It will pan out," said Sidney somberly, from the window. "Of course, it will!" Rose's face was radiant. "Bui I won't say anything. Oh, JefT, let me hug you?" -...,_She hugged him, and he rultlcd her hair. -• - ^. -. •• "There's a hilch," he said. "Money. Have you got any inoncv. Rose?" She shook her head. "How much would it be?" "Railroad fare. One way. It I didn't get the job, I could earn enough in New York for n return ticket. Sweeping streets, washing dishes in «i greasy spoon, some darned job or other." "Couldn't you .save Vp?" Rose asked. "Out of your blink salary here?" "No. You EOC, the letter says September nineteenth." "But maybe the tobacco people would postpone it." Sidney said, without turning around: "The nineteenth is ten days off. He has to go before the nineteenth — or never. So he couldn't save up." "Anyway," Jeff said, "it. would take months to scrooge out rnil- rond fare from my biwk salary. Months!" Where Do We Go From Here?
