Governor Lamlon Provoked' by" Governor Liuulon'n strange utterances on the subjects of the reciprocal tiade treaties and soeiiil security, Columnist Hugh S. Johnson ventures the declaration tliat the Republican presidential candidate reveals himself as either ignorant or dishonest. We arc not satisfied with the general's diagnosis. Governor London is not consciously or deliberately dishonest. Nor is it exactly jubf, to call him ignorant, for while Ilia understanding of sonic of the questions he undertakes to discuss very probably is inadequate, still we ' venture the opinion that could he b'ring himself to view these ciuestions objectively he would be able to analyze them with a fair degree of intelligence. The truth is thnl the Kansas governor, like a good .many men in public life, is a political opportunist. His primary interest is in the career of Alfred Ji. Lamlon. His approach to public problems is..from the standpoint of their usefulness as stepping stones to political preferment. There is no other adequate explanation for his record and his uttcianccs. Allies Stilt Belittle Our Help In. War It is just about 18 years since the World War ended, but oiirjabfe beloved allies have not yet given up', the attempt to prove that we really weren't nearly as much help to them as_we supposed at the lime. Daviil Lloyd George, who was prime minister of England when we went in- 4o the war, is still writing memoirs, and his most recent volume includes some sharp criticism of Gen. John J. Pershing. Gcncial Persihing has been ciitici/ed by allied statesmen 'before now. He wasn't quite the sort of thing they wcie looking for; he had a hard, Equare, jaw, and a mouth that 'could' look like a slit in a sheet of armor , plate. When they all iallied 'round and began telling him how to run his : '"part of the war, lie had a icmarkablc faculty for listening i\mctly and .then saying "No" in a rock-ribjwd, eternal sort of \\ay. li'oyd George's complaint is the same old ,onc: that Pershing was as stubborn as a Missouri mule about tin: idea of keeping American troops under American command, and that, because of-this fact, it took the United Stales altogether,, too long to"make its presence felt on. the liring lino. The Lloyd George idea had. .the beauty of simplicity. It was ^b'feed American .'troops; right into tire British army, by companies and.battalions. There w.onld be; no American army, as such; instead,'there would be, a vast .number of .separate units' brigaded inip the'war-worn British,divisions. As'fast as our boys/got to France, they could be put lo 'work. The best mark' on I'crs'hiiig's^rec- ord is the fact, that he. said "No" to this little scheme,.and said'it often. The Biitish high command jiad' spent two mortal years butting its head into a stone wall. At'the very moment when it Was asking Pcrsh- . iiiK to turn hix American boys b.yer • lo its tender mercies, 1 ' it was* wasting -100,000 lives in the miid-mircd Passchcndaele offensive—a strategic gem for which British historians are still criticizing the high';command in the bitterest terms. >- .. '!•••. Lloyd George himself did not quite trust the British high coinrmiml. He held 'British troops in ; : ''England m such numbcts that Karl Haig's partisans blame him for the German break-through of March, 1018; held them there because he was hick of seeing the flower of the British army wasted in vain, uninspired attacks that were foredoomed to failure. Air.l yet Lloy.l George now can crilici/.e I'ersliing for feeling precisely the same way! We owu Uii.4 lantern-jawed general of ours a great debt of gratitude. He stood like a rock against ^unbelievable pressure. He held out for the idea that if American boys had to light on a foreign battlefield, they would at least go in under Anicncdn direction, lighting for American objectives. If he is to be criticised, it l ia s got to bo for some reason other than that.

After the shock of the words hart passed she realized that she would have to make readjustment,- and lace such things calmly. For Ted lived an inlernalional life. On the trans-Pacilie route, because of the very nature of Ms job, he met countless people whose names made news. But struggling against Kay's own nature made her restless. She wanted to be going places, doing something all the time. Tbd met such moods with an air of indulgence that caused another quarrel between them, ending in tears and then reconciliation. She didn't go to the landing to see him come in when his ship arrived next. She had heard that Illah was aboard and she didn't want to face her. The Mariner alighted on the waters of Ship Harbor toward dusk. At that moment Kay sat patiently at the telephone in her home, dialing one number after another. If Ted wanted a gay lite in foreign ports she would give him one when he was nslu-'e! Stie could play his game, too, and she would. gHE invited to their home that night all of the hangers-on about the airport—people wh" had no part in the enterprise, but lived in the Iivialion colony to share the excitement and glamour. Many in the crowd had read about Ted Graham's exploits, but had never met him. They had .read, too, about the notorious dancer, Illah', who had come in on the plane. They wondered if she'd be at the parly that night, hoped so, and whispered about it eagerly.. They all came, and they were on time. Toward 10 o'clock the three rooms which' had been thrown open to guests were filled, and people had begun to take possession of the porches and even the kitchen. Ted was a little bewildered at the sight. He had come home late for dinner and found that the guests had already begun to arrive. The members of the urmy crowd were strangers to him. Nobody bothered to introduce him, but he supposed they were Kay's friends. He -was fired and sleepy and, at last, retired to his den, but some of. the men had already taken possession of it. They were shooting dice on the.floor anil didn't even look up when- Ted ' eamc in. A woman hurried after him and caught his arm. "Ted Graham!" she exclaimed breathlessly. "Do tell me about that fascinating creature you brought in with you today on the plane. We read about her in the papers. Is she really a Eurasian?" Ted laughed. ^ "I've seen her dance," Ted said. "And she dances remarkably well." "Then I'm sorry she didn't come to your parly. I eame all t!:e way from San Francisco just to see her!" Pique was written on the wrinkled jowls of the dowager's face. t » * 'T'HE whole evening, to Ted, was A as grotesque as this one incident. The gaiety of the crowd was exaggerate*'. Ted sought refuge from the brittle chatter at Kay's side, but she was in the center of an admiring throng and he couldn't seem lo get in a word. \\c went upstairs again and, fin,'ing his den empty, locked the docfi and went to beet. He vres tired- lead tired. He had impc.-- lant wo.-k to do next day ancJ in less than a minute hc was sound asleep. Kay haj seen iiim go upstairs and she followed ,'is soon a? she was able lo sVo away. Finding the door, locktj, she knocked. There was no answer'from within the. room, which was dark, she knew. She tried the doorknob. "Locked!" .she thought angrily, "He's asleep. The idea—insulting me by going to sleep during my party. While there arc gueots in the house!" Ted's apparent indifference enraged her. "Asleep!" ; she stormed inwardly. "Bui he., wasn't :too tired to go out with Illah and that Rosalind Krugcr in Honolulu. AU right!" ' She went downstairs again, joined in the fun even"more gayly. Kay's adventurous spirit had finally broken its bonds and Monte Blaine shared this mood. When it was proposed that they all go somewhere across Ihe bay to continue the party, Kay was among the first to agree. They went to one night clulj and then another. Gradually the crowd grew smaller. Couples begun to dcpurt, murmuring about the latcnesi' of the hour. Ralph Bangs, who had been Doris' escort, had gone long before, but Doris was still ill the crowd. Ralph had to go to Honolulu on the Mariner at 3 ill the morning and Monte iiad promised to give him a call and wake him in time to reach the airport promptly. => * * AT last there were only the ^ x three of them left—Kay and Doris and Moni.c. They decided to stop for breakfast at a beach hotel and they stood r/i the beach, watching the sea lions come to life on the island rocks. When (hey were tired of watching these antics, Kay, Doris and Monte went inside to order their toasted rolis, bacon and eggs anc? hot coffee. Suddenly the sun came up but of the Pacific like a great Hery ball. The gorgeous spectacle made Kay's spirits soar again. She Jelt exuberantly young. "All this time," she said bitterly lo Doris, "I've been sitting primly at home, trying to learn to keep house scientifically, working over bnctgels and planning balanced meals and seeing to it that Dickie ale his spinach and got to bed proraaUy—and Ted's been having a good !ii:ie! I was trying to build up a home, swie on stone, scientifically. But now I want to throw bricks—!" Monte arrived beside them to hear the last words. "Look .-it. pal!" he warned. "You'll take wings and fly ir you cloirt v/atch out." "f. want to fly!" Kay said, almost tearfully. "I want to fly and ily—>md—fly—aver the ocean." She concluded rebelliously, "Away from Ted!" "You don't mean thai," Doris told her. "Hush." "But I do mean it!" Kay insisted. "I'M tell you what—" She stopped and gazed through flic gathering mist of her tears toward the Pacific. "I'm going to take the morning plane to Honolulu. Tiiat's what I'm going lo do. I'm going to fly-and'fly and fly—"• "You're goingV home- lo bed." Doris said. "M.UW: "No, no! I'm going fa fly to Honolulu—with Monte!" {To Be Continued) SEEK Pll OF SEfl ISLAHD C!
