Jlosfc of these have been based on proposed bills like the May Hill which have been placed before Congress. They may also be based on Uio experience of tiie countries already involved in the war in Europe. But there is s\ further basis for this sort of prediction, and one that is ot- ten forgotten today. That is the experience of the United States, itself with centralized control during the world -War. A Council of National Defense hiul been set up in Washington months b'e- fore the United States entered the war, in. fact, dimujf the summer of 1910. Tin's council had the broad lines ot economic lio-ordination laid out; long before the war came. Within two months after the Um'teu Stales entered the war, co-ordination began in earnest: with the setting up of the War Industries Hoard. This agency acted as purchasing agent for ' the army and navy and us a procurement staff for whatever was needed to cairy on the war. It also had broaU powers over the production and movement-of commodities, such as to insure 'that the lighting forces would have , what they needed at all times. Ask' ,' any'.business man'over CO years'okl what' happened' to', him iu 1018 if he wanted steel for a new plant in those days, and whether he got it, unless he could show the War Industries Hoard the necessity for it. , A shipping board was sei up to buy, build, and operate the shins whicll - were to constitute the "bridge of ships to Fiance," and tjie Emergency Fleet Corporation deckled what ships weie to go where, Carrying what. Tho Food Administration came along iu August, 1<117, to promote conservation, co-ordinate purchases, and contiol movement of foodstuffs. Ot' course the Committee on Public Information had already placed its informal bill e/l'ect- ive control over newspapers, movies, and books. The Fuel Administration soon u\cd the prices of coal und oilier fuel, and decided who should gel how much. In the spring of 1918 Ihc Kailroad Aclmts- i.slration took over the railroatto. Ihey narrowly escaped remaining permanently under gosernmeiUal control alter the war,' Thus on a basis of past experience, and without resorting to future guess. work, we knew that our own country was pretty close to totalitarian during the period of the World War. Any hew war would start where the last one left oft 1 . This demonstrates the unpalatable truth that countries which light totalitarianism must first become to totalitarian themselves. •MONDAY; OCTOBER 10, 1S)3'J Irony in Ken sing ion The original Wright airplane rests quietly, but not securely, in the Kensington Museum ill England. Certain people interested in the aviation industry are worried Jest it be destroyed in :in .air. raid, , That would certainly be a touch of irony to malic the gods themselves laugh. The crude little box-Idle in which the Wright brothers lifted themselves oft' the dimes at Kill Duvi! Hill, North Carolina, only 3fi years ago has already spawned monstrous progeny. The Wright plane went to England after a dispute between the inventors and the Smithsonian Institution in Washington. There have been many attempts to bring it back. Now it is in rciil danger of being lost, along 'with (he lives of hundreds of thousands of Englishmen'. The brain of man, which, with daring and almost godlike inspiration, conceived the git I of (light, has failed to use the gift -to any better purpose than to threaten with destruction not only man himself, but.even the frail kite that is a monument to thai daring.

He hadn't even tailed her during the v;eek, but the know Tccli opened with Wes- leyari on Saturday, and according to (ho papers— little us she read 1hc sports pages— Coach Bill Slocum had been driving the varsity fiercely. Football had been nothing more than a game fo her up imiil then, l-wt'as she walked io tiie stadium with Marianne, Elaine, and Carol for the opener she suddenly was aware of a new'interesl. Keith, of course. II was a glorious September afternoon. Nat one among (ho thousands who were streaming across Ihc campus ;is much as carried a blanket. Carol bought a paper just before they entered ihe stadium. It was virtually a football edition, with players' pictures plastered all over the front page. And splashed across three columns, largest of nil, was Keith Rhodes. H was a full-lenglh action shot witli Kcilh stiff-arming an imaginary opponent. She stole another look after they found Iheir seats. "Some stuff, ch?" Carol observed. Joan smiled. "Begins to look as though Keith is THE varsity." She chucked liis iiumbev in the program. It was 28. It took her a little while . before she picked him onl ot the swarm of maroon- jerscyed figures who were scurrying about in-prc-game warmups. Keith was sending long, spirulihg punls doivniield. Ojic of his kicks soared GO yards and a prolonged "oooohh" rolled r.p from the packed slands. "He's really wonderful," Man-' anno broke in excitedly. ".Wait'll you sec, Joan." * » v TOAN saw. So did 50,000 others. Wesleyan kicked u'ff 'and it was Kcilh Bhodes who took the haU deep on liis own three-yard line. Straight up (he sidelines he went tor about. 15 yards as Ills iiitev- fercrs cut down the first three Wcslcyan men. to break through, Then'he cut sharply^ to the left, sliff-annod a Wcslcyan'end arid reversed Ills'field. ' \ At midfleld there v/ern only three. Weslcyan. men in his path. Keith timed himself in back of Ihe lone Tech Intcrfercr who was still with him. fhe blocker was No. 40. Culling slightly to the right again, Kcilh gestured wilh his free liahd. No. 40 cut down two of the "Wesleyan men like a scythe, with a long roll block. Keith broke into (he clear and then went down heavily as the last Wsslcyau tackier spilled him on the 20 with ft desperate lunge. Joan found herself on her feet, screaming. Marianne was pound- iiig Carol on the back. They could scarcely make themselves heard above Iho din. "Yowec, 80 yards!" someone above , them howled. "Nice goin', Keith!" They quieted down as Tech went into a huddle. "Did you SEE that?" Carol asked breathlessly. ' "And that No. 40," exclaimed Elaine. "The way he ran interference. Who was that, I wonder." She rah her finger down the list. But Joan had already found it. "Dan Webber," she said. Tecb. took it ovev in four plays, Keith scoring slanding up on a roversi! good for eight yards and the touchdown. ' *: * •• JUST before the half ended Keiih scored again. Someone took out.the Wesley mi end neatly and Keith breezed wide. He faked the defensive halfback info lunging toward him, sidestepped and went down the sidelines for 38 yards. Joan felt a thrill go through her] as he tcuched the ball down: The' Tech players swarmed about him, pounding him on the head and- shoulders. The man . who had blocked the end • allfbxit wrung Keith'/'hand off he'pumped it so hare!. It was No. 40, but few had noticed him. The score al Ihe of the game was 28-0. Early, in Iho third quarter Keith crashed over from the five- yard line on ;i delayed buck, and in Ihe fourth quarter Quarterback Jolmliy While passed to Barney Hughes standing all slono in the end zone, « * « JT look the girls at least 20 minutes to gc-t clear of the great crowd leaving the stadium. As they moved slowly, foot by fool, down the- long ramp Ihey listened to the Sunday morning quarterbacks who were already replaying., the game, v "Great backQetd .,. mile wea k front, though. . . ."

"If they £o as smooth all season we'll be undefeated. ..." . . Yea!), and did you ever see anyone back up a line arid run interference like that man Webber •. . must bo like gelling hit with a truck when lie lies into you. . . ." Joan hardly realized there was anyone but a man named Rhodes on the Tech varsity until *hc powerfully built man with the iron-gray hair in front of 'her mentioned Dan Webber's name. * 3 n TUST as she was waving the dip." ner table that night a pledge came up and told Joan she was .' wanted oil the phone. "First call I've had since I've been here," Joan called back to Marianne as she hurried in the direction of the booth under tho stairs. When she came out on the terrace her face- was flushed and there was a noticeable sparkle in her eye. Marianne looked at her. keenly. "Okay, spill it . . . what's up?" Joan pioppcd into the jglider beside her. "Guess whaf," she announced. "That was Keilh. lie :alled to invite me lo dinner at Ihc Gamma house Ibmoii-ow afternoon. How'm I doin'?"
