The surviving imlives, whalever tlioiv pnviiti! emotions about (lie ad'air may be, will at least be impressed by lliii fact that the old custom of killing witches is not approved by (he government. So, in the course of lime, it ,\vill happen that no more witches arc killed in Kn'li.s!i Africa. And (lie natives—whose menial processes will still find nothing wrong in the idea of killing witches—will, in spilu of themselves, take on one move attribute of civilization. v Tins is all rather interesting to meditate uiron, especially since all the rest of us are more or less in the same • boat, We have managed, without intending to, to gel ourselves into ^t .s|K)t in which 'wo must very speeilily take on tlic customs of a higher civilization or perish. , First we nieeliani/.cd the world. We made possible the production of goods on a scale infinitely greater than imy: thing previously dreamed of. \Ve improved transportation, so Hint, all.- distances h-fiviink to a fiftieth ol'-iheir old length. We improved communication systems, xo (liat every man -had the world for a neighbor. Wo erected an enormously intricate and complicated li- Dandal-imhistrial system, so tli.-it Die whole world has to sland or I'all together. Having done thw, we failed to understand that a civilization- of that sort could uol, be conducted by men and wo- inen whose menial outlonk was just about what the mental oullook of their groat-jframlpm-cnb had been. Our troubles today come chiefly frum the fact that we have not yet been able,to live up to this glittering lieu- civilization. Our minds, fur instance, still accept such things as ignorance. poverty, prejudice, international rivalry and war as natural features of human OUT OUR WAY MA AMI OH, MA OV-U \ AMD \_oov< AT 1 society—although our new civili/.ation must inevitably go to iwt unless such things arc eliminated. We stand pretty much where the African natives v slmul. We must gel civilized or perish. —I'nice Catton. The New Chinese Soldier The course of some of the recent lighting around Shanghai will probably maki! some of us to revise our precon- .ceivcd opinions about Hie capabilities of tile Chinese soldier. Heretofore, Chine.-e armies hail been (xin.iidered more. 01' h'.-w {jie[l'iciu!!;t. The ease with which Japan mopped up in Manchuria strengthened that opinion. Again and again the Japanese met "arniies" that far oiilmimbure" them, and again anil again they routed Ibem in .short order. Hut '(ho lighting aniimd Shanghai has Ijcen dilfcrc'iit. The Chinese have shown a surprising abilily to jfjvo ;i» guod as they receive, and the job that (lie Japanese expected to do in a few days wasn't that kind of a job. These particular Chinese soldiers happen (o bo well-drilled and well equipped. Under such circumslances. apparently, the Chinese make excellent soldiers. A Hollow Victory Two of Chicago's more notorious "public enemies" got a part of what was coining to them ihe other day when a federal court imposed stilt lines and prison sentences on the notorious Terry Druggaii and I'Yankic Lake, long-Holed "boor barons," for failure to pay income laxes on their illegal profits. It is, of course, good IU;\V K to learn that these two gentlemen are going to prison for a, while; but outride of that one fact, there is little in the w ,su to make the law-abiding citizen rejoice. After all, there is something faintly ridiculous in the fact that just about the only prominent Chicago gangsters to go to prison go for evading tile in- como tax , law, and not for running booze, bribing public officials, promoting vice and gambling joints or committing murder. The fact that only the income tax law seems ablo to hit i), e midmi-orld i.s, when you stop to think of it, a .shocking commentary on our system of general law enforcement. Another slfin of returning normalcy is His recently reported fact llmL U. S Mminw nro blill chasing Sumliuu In Nicaragua. OIK- or om friends brags tlmt lie lias kept Hie s:niic umbrella for 10 years.

' The baby that is fussy requires constant attention. It is picked up. carried about, patted on the back, rocked, fed nnd changed mutn more often than if it were a normal infant.

Prompt aiedJCiil ad- jvice will result in the ns c of mca- Hiics that will produce a suitable relaxation. Removal of the child from the home to the hospital will give the mother an opportunity for rest and a chance to develop a proper emotional relationship to the child. WASHINGTON LETTER N E W Y O!!

Agnes creates a little string beret, and Vionnet startles Paris with her diaphanous evening gowns worn over incredibly brief maillots. Bruyere.makesa coat with a scarf, and Schiaparelli sponsors dinner pajamas. ^Those things happen within the closely guarded portals of the great French houses. Only one woman in a million will see them as the mannequins pass by. But two weeks later — three weeks at most— every American woman who reads a newspaper "may^loiow as much about the Paris Openings as the fortunate •• few. ^Greatdepavtmcnt stores, tiny specialty shops, alert manufacturers, offer through their advertising what .practically amounts to a restaging of these semiannual presentations. Every successful model will be shown. Every significant trend will be recounted — and America will swear its Basque bai-cts and its evening pajamas as nonchalantly as Cannes for Juan les Pins. Two generations ago—or even one — this could, not have been. And advertising has been a tremendous force in making it possible. Advertising has become the common carrier of fashion. There's a passage to Paris in the advertisements almost any day you look.
