Wlion it comes lo that decision it; will perform (lie muss equivalent of letting its hair down and putting its feet up on the porch railing, and »t that point the. assorted dictators, strong men, and rabble-rousers of the present em will begin looking for new jobs. The world as a whole lias been living on its emotion 1 ) for years. It has lK«n keyed up, oralcd nt, harangued, ordered about, and generally bedeviled in 11 way lit lo drive its people to asylums by battalions. And the :race can't keep on that way uny more than in'i individual can. Sooner or later there is bound to be a lot- down. Heio, for instance, we have Bcuilo Mussolini addressing tho people of Italy in line, inipassioned plnasos: "We must be strong! We must be always stronger! . . . To this supreme, categorical principle must be subordinated and will be subordinated nil the life of the nation." Like the speech of a football conch in the locker room between halves, this sounds line. It is the sort of thing Hint, addressed directly to you by someone you admire and respect immensely, makes you want lo hammer on your chest, hitch up your pants] and take a fall out of the man who doesn't like it.' ~' '.. 7 / •'Bill you' can't go on "feeling that way indefinitely. There comes a lime when such appeals begin lo bo a trifle boring. You, feel that they are old stuff, that you have heard it all before, and that getting noble and tense is just a bil of a nuisance when yon have to do it too often. And, the next time the strong man approaches and bids you b\> strong and vigilant, you are more Hum likely to lell him lo go and fry his hat for himself while yon go out in the garden and weed the young onions. Now the point .lo remember is that it is only by such emotional ap|H>als that the dictators and the demagogs keep themselves in power. They live on the emotions of their followers. As long as they can keep on whipping up the fears, hatreds, suspicions, and unfulfilled aspirations of the mass, OUT OUR WAY SLVTHfaVlLLB (AUK.) COUftlEft NEWS they are .safe; the moment Hie whip stops swishing, they are done for. The Kalians, the Germans, Ihe Russians, and the others—they have been under the lash for a good many years. Periodically, each group is called on to face some "crisis" or other—In assert Us heroism, lo live dangerously, to be violent and bravo and .self- denying and all the rest. One of these days they fire more than likely lo decide that they have bad enough. They will greet their leaders' frenzied appeals with an "Oh, I,only—do we have to go through all that again?" They will act, in other words, as people always have acted when the tension has been kept up too long. And when that day comes, IIhe beetlebrowed strong men, Uie voice- cracking orators, the men' of destiny in general, will be hunting for a new line 'of work. —Bruce Cation. SJDE GLANCES By George. Clark .Orchid To Hollywood Everybody is familiar with Ihe criticism that Hollywood movie productions pander to the .salacious and miss no opportunity In drag in a parlor, bedroom, and batli situation. 'Pbose responsible for such criticism usually make knowing reference' to the supposedly higher plane on which British tin,:l contiiicnlal films are produced: Now comes the report of the Australian ccn'sora for 1!K!5, revealing ihat last year they rejected li.t per cent of American films for such reasons, while at tbo same time banning li.5 per cent of Rritish lilms. Hollywood movies have captured the world because, considering the entire' production o r the industry, they have Ueen inlinilely better than those ui. any other country. The Australian report would seem lo indicate that they're cleaner, loo. Amid all Ihe dead cats thai have been tossed toward Hollywood by the higher critics, let's include one orchid when it's deserved. KflBflM In some. European countries men and WOT men live In fear of an invisible hand.

They were luxurious hnsiuess quarters, indeed, and she quickly discovered that in them Hie name of Francis Jarvis was important. Of course file had noticed that his automobile had been no small model- but nowadays even the moderately fixed may drive more than eight cylinders. The girl in -the- walnut-paneled reception room regarded Jutlilh with polite suspicion. "What did you wish to sen Mr. Jarvis about? Perhaps Mr. Pomeroy, his assistant, could be of service to you." "I'm afraid not. Yon sec, Mr. Jarvis was' injured slightly in an automobile accident last Highland I was responsible." "I see. Just a moment, please " Expertly (he Rirl plugged in.

Hesitatingly, Judith opened it, stepped onto a deep, soft carpet. At the other end of the good- sized room was a broad, Hat desk which held nothing more than a green blotter pad and an ornate pen set. Behind It sat a man of middle-age, slender, a bit florid. His (lurk eyes were younger than his face, but when iie smiled—as he did now—his face complemented the eyes, and he seemed lo drop live or six years. "Miss Howard?" he said. ".Won't you please sit down?" « *• * JUDITH thanked him, choosing J the nearest leather-cushioned chair. Suddenly it occurred to her how absurd it was for her lo be ottering Ibis man responsibility for Lhe accident. "You wanted lo see me about last night's liltle accident?" With a smile Jarvis touched the side of his head where a broad patch of white tape covered his dark hair. "You're not by any chance that very preoccupied young woman who caused me lo swerve into an unyielding Are hydrant?" ^ "I'm afraid I was," Judith said. "I came lo tell you how sorry I am— and to assure you that I feel Francis Jarvis. "You say he took you,. J and address?" inquired Bob ^ Virginia laughed. "Judith" Ihuik! Maybe you've putyo self m me for a yacht and a rage full of cars." "Don't be silly, you two," J u admonished them. She did not say what was her heart—that what she wan and all she wanted, was a SI Fowler 'who would come back responsible lor any dam- loolied at her amusedly. age." "Just what do you mean? Judith resented his apparent mild amusement. Getting to her feet, she said, "Of course I didn't know what your circumstances might be, and—" "Oh, please don't think I don't appreciate your thoughlfulncss." He laughed pleasantly. "The bond busBiess hasn't been quite as good as it might be, you know. I may hold yoif responsible, at that!" "That would be fair enough," Judith said, and gave him her address and telephone number. « s s gMlLING, Jarvis wrote it down on a desk pnd. Then he tossed down the pencil and grew serious "Really, Miss Howard, I think this is splendid of you. But I assure you that the matter isn't serious, and I'm more than willing to lake cnre of the damage." He smiled again. Francis Jarvis accompanied her to the door of his office. "Goodby, Miss Howard. And I want lo thank you again. I'll be glad lo have you drop in any lime." Virginia and Bob Bent were mightily interested when Judith related her meeting with Dn Eden Harris. "It.didn't take you long to get under way after you'broke the lease wi;h Steve!" was Virginia's comment. .,jii want fi that's all right with me. U u love you so much that I've not have you!" * * * J-JOWEVER, this Steve Fov didn't appear, that day or Hie days that followed. She not even hear from the Steve \ wanted lo argue her into prolo ng a mere engagement. "I hear Stove's out of town business trip," Bob fold her .

The chances were g< that he'd invented the tale so to explain why Judith ha, heard from Fowler. And the revocable fact was that she thought of Steve in her wal hours, dreamed of him in sleep. Then one evening, just as i and the Bents arrived home fr. the workaday world, Dr. EC Harris telephoned. "I want," he said, "a beauti, companion for dinner." Judith was delighted to h< that bantering voice. "Well!" ^ said. "Let me think a momc Perhaps I can make a suggeslio "On second thought," said H; ris. "I'll make one.
