It 1ms been several years since all the European nations except Finland agreed that there was no sense in paying Uncle Sam wlial was due him. Since armies and navies are Ihe only international collecting agencies thai amount to anything, and since Uncle Sam obviously was not going to get that tough about it, welshing seemed perfectly safe. ,' Uncle Sam would just have to lal<c it—rather, not lake'it—and like it. - There was one little thing the American Congress could do, and it proceeded to do il with all speed. It passed the Johnson act, prohibiting American loans to any foreign governments which were in default on their war debts. But that looked vcty much like an empty gesture, at Hie time, because 110- body \vas tiying to boirow anything, "" • With" the passing of the yi'nvs, however, the picture has changed a lillle. Tho world depression isn't quite as had as' it was. Governments are gelling into a spending mood once more. Euiiheunoro, a new \\M seems to be jn Iho cards, and all hands would ,like to be able to do a little more business with the American birfiks, munitions makers, and, raw brokers'. Both France 'nnd. tyfily j(| fo ( r instance, ''recently ,foi|nd. it advisable to seek funds fiom abroad; a-id both nations found the American bunks closed lo them. Now it is reported that Great Britain is likewise interested in gelling funds in ihis country for its vast rearmament campaign; but the Johnson act stands in Britain's way also'. As a icsult of all this, rumors are afloat lo the effect that one or another of the foreign powers will presently be taking steps CQ reopen the war debt question. One report—quoted recently by tho Business Conditions Weekly of the Alexander Hamilton Insii.tntci—sug- gests that Fhgland may devalue the 246,000,000 pounds sterling of gold now held by the Bank of England and OUT OUR WAY offer the resulting profit, some $700,000,000, to America as a lump sum settlement of Ihc British, debt, It would seem odd to find the war debts on the front pages again, after we' had kissed (\\crn goodby forever. But it is quite possible that is just what will happen. If it does happen, there ivmsl be at least a few Americans who will suspect that, the wnr debts are worth more dead lhan alive. Defaulted, the debts stand as a barrier against our, gelling financially and industrially entangled, wit|| a Ruropa which is on Hits verge of indulging in another world-shaking row. Paid III>T—fit a dime on the dollar, or some such rate—I hey would cease lo be a barrier, and Ihc way would be open once moro for us to bo a Good Tirno Charley for Ihe world at large.

From her balcony window Kay watched lllah get into a laxi, and. in the stillness of the night, heard her give the name of a smart night club. Kay took a laxi to the same address. In the foyer she stopped long enough lo send a cablegram to Ted. While the boy waited at her side, she puzzled over the wording. At last she, wrote: ; "Diamond Head Hotel.

The dancer was standing at the bar, talking to two Kay sa'i 1 lllah reach in her bag and hand a paper to one of the men. Hit, TT was not quit clear to Kay what she expected to learn bv observing lllah. The dancer had, on several occasions, menaced Kay's happiness, and now some inslinet told her that Hiaii menaced Tyd's happiness as well. Suddenly lllah disappeared. Kay had turned for an instant, in response (o a voice that she recognized close by. It was a naval officer's voice, lie was a friend o£ Ted's and lie came up to Kay's table with his wife, greeting her cordially. They invited Kay to Iheir table. She went with them, but, looking around, saw that lllah -.vas] gone. To the naval officer she, said quickly, ( 'Kcc those men' standing al the bar. Do you know I them?"' ; The man scanned: the faces and said shortly, "Sure. One of them, the one (hat lopks like an Oriental, owns a, flecl ot: pearl fishing sc)ioonprs and the other is tm'avi.-' iltor. He has a flying boat and makes commercial'trips between the islands, They are both suspected p£ playing contraband. Oily customers." Ray.thanked him and went on, "They were' standing there talking to a slinky Oriental woman a few minutes ago. I once had the oc^ caskm to meet her in Manila Ted—" "Oh, lllah!" the officer's wife said. "My dear, v.-hen lllah is in Honolulu all the wives at Pearl Harbor shiver! She's such a serpent. She givas me the creeps. Makes me think of. Mala liari." * * t ' TTER husband laughed. "Feminine suspicions, my dear," and Iheri changed the subject abruptly. "Something terrible has just happened out at Midway," he said. "It concerns the navy as well as Trans-Pacific Airways. .One of the air station personnel on the island came down with spinal meningitis —the deadly type. Three more cases arc suspected, and in th.e crowded quarters there may ke an epidemic. There isn't an ounce ol serum on the islands.", ' Kay said, "Those men aloric^oii a tiny island in the middle of the ocean—facing death-^"' '•''•' "They're anly 12 hours'away'by air," the man reminded her. "The serum will slop Ihe epidemic all right- It's alreidy on board'the Mariner." All three rose to go presently and her friends accompanied Kay to her hotel. But she couldn't sleep. Shs saw the sun come up over Diamond Head, in « violent clash of color. Then she dressed and had breakfast sent up lo her room. The waiter knew she was Ted Graham's wife. After lie had served her he said respectfully, "The Mariner was forced down inlo the sea at French Frigate Shoals." Kay's heart leapt. In her anxiely she siooc't up, cropping the spoon in her hand. "No!" IIGI- cycs were stark, wide. "Safe landing!" (he youlh hastened to add. -'But after repairs the ship was unable to take off." "But what will they do?" Kay said. "The soruv.—" "The epidemic scare sent mobs into the hospitals, and the supply! of serum in Honolulu was ex-j| haustgd," he said. "But Tod Graham—your husband, mad:un—has been on ;iie way from San Francisco far nine hours new. He- should be in Honol'u'ii in seven hours wilh a new supply. He's going (o fly ihe ship on lo the Midway!" « * u CHE thanked the waiter, and lie left, pleased to have rendered service to Ted Graham's wife. On the 20-ton Mariner of the skies Ted's eyes were actually watching the gyropilot, which had controlled and flown Ihe ship for five hours now without the benefit ol human hands. On this cmct- gency flight he was trying out the gyropilot, the device lie had perfected. . He walked from the navigation instrument board back fo flic engineering oflicer's post. He checked t!ie engine and fuel instruments, looked across at the post ot the- radio officer, and listened to the code message from the set used for communicating with ground stations.
