THE BEAUTY CLINIC l«t Nat'. Bank Bid,. Phone 3274 Who has not been struck by the horrlbl» contrast in the Mussolini ot Ilic balcony with the out-thrust I arrogant chin t! K diamaili piusc' for i!,e clieo ,, applause and \\\<f Mussolini, (I,,, brave conqueror of the "terrible" Ethiopians, (who almost drove his modern armies from their little country with really brnve but practically unarmed "Barbarians"), the conqueror (?i ot Prance; the man who made the whirlwind I?) victorious campaign of Greece; anyhow, clown that he was. comic-jpei-ii ham as the rest ol Ihe world saw him, the Italian people were hysterical in their wild huzzas and pride in their "great." successor of Cnuwir. The man who was to carve again a great Roman empire out of the world which lay at his feel. Who has not been struck by the contrast of this "great Italian hero" iind a few short months later the picture ol a biillel Utal- ian bullets) riddled corpse as it lay in grotesciue posture-of death beside his mistress as the sacrec soil of his Italy became the dirt and filth that became mud ant slime as hundreds of his "loyal 1 subjects passed by and lips lhat a few short months before had Miout- ed his praise to the high heavens spit now in sadistic glee upon hi; di-famcd corpse. Paradoxically hi- only really lo.vnl subject, the one uerson who voluntarily followed him through those terrible feai laden days raid nights of degreda- lion, when he showed himself to be no superman but a cowardly weakling; the one person of all the thousands who had sung his praises who loved him and served him when fortune turned it's back; the one person who, knowing him for what he was. stayed by to comfort him and at lust to die with him and lo lay by his side and share '.he curses hurled at his mutilated corpse, lo bang head downward with him in Ihe public square, this one person was nol his kindred, nol one of his generals, not a comrade in his partv, not a member or his cabinet, iio, his one loyal friend was a harlot, a hated woman of the streets, his mistress! Glad-though we were to sec the downfall of this father of dictators, this over-rated, puffed-up opportunist, nevertheless, the Italian peo- nle will never be able to erase the shtune of their treatment of the leader whom they would have gladly followed to victory, but whom in defeat they deserted^aml desecrated. Picture also the "German people who. a few short months after they had practically worshipped Hitler as a god deseci.ited his name and denounced him by thousands as they went before their conquerors. Hardly could ono be found who would oven admit that they had willingly served him. We ourselves are not altogether without blemish in this respect. Witness our treatment of President Wilson. The writer who was in Franco at Ibc time of his visit there after (lie close o[ World War One. remembers how proud was every American soldier of this American world leader. Never before in the history ol the world had one man bad so much Influence; never had the world listened .is they did to every word spoken by oiii- American President. Perhaps he was a dvcamer but his dreams were of a world, without wars, fashioned upoi- a Le.ism of Nations. WITH TEETH,'] to enforce the peace, wh!eh~liad i the American people supported him would have resembled very much our present United Nations Organization. See him a few months later, a sick and broken man; a man whose own people had put politics ahead of world peace; a people to whom he had. brought such glory and power, that all nations were ready to heed his advice and planning and to follow his leadership, —yet a people who wrangled on mi-' nar issues in their Congress, who picked his League of Nations to death, who defeated all that our armed forces lint! fought and died for and defeated it selfishly and thoughtlessly. Sec this greal American as he died of a broken heart nol broken by his enemies; he had' conquered the foe. His own people failed him in his crucial moment of world leadership! Perhaps on this subject your writer Is dogmatic, but if so. it Is because of the strong feelings which I have always had in this direction—and will always have. My personal opinion is that m our defeat of our president's program we ourselves laid the groundwork for World War Two and rdl the horrors which have been brought upon this generation! Perhaps you are wondering, why the nncient history. Perhaps you aro wondering who your writer was "mad" at todav lo cause this gloomy "From Me ta You." Jusl this: Another party is now in power Party- politics, while healthy in the main ';nd the basis of America's success- fill democracy, can nevertheless in liniT's of great need, serve the very powers which we strive to defeat l,?t the Republicans and the Demo| crals. now again piny politics in a world looking to them for leadership: let us destroy again the "tcclh" of our new League of Nations: let us again become easy prey to world politics: let us relinquish-our atom bomb; let us de- TURKISH BATHS Warm, Invigorating and really a wonder worker, that's what you'll say about these wonderful turk- Ish baths at Artie's Beauty Shop.
