If subsequent IJDIIV out pros• cut predictions llml Ihc American bus'; jiesg curve is bending upward once i more, full credit for Hie expansion 01' domestic markets is likely (o KO lo tli« war abroad. There is scant reason to deny that any European conflict should produce some effect on Amerienn business. No one iii this country believed indices y,'<jukl be unaffected when hostilities broke out in September. It is loo ea'-ly to forecast accurately the '.eventual results of Kurope's conflict on business trends in the United States, bill it Js interesting to note,, the theory that Uic war was mere))' the instrument rather tltiin the cause. of expansion. This point of view is taken by The Annalist in its quarterly review 'and bi'isinc.s.s 1 forecast edition. Since -Hie United Slates was n\vc|il, into the depression in 1(12!), industrial production has curved downward, tlc- 'spito a continued increase in population, it is pointed out. From comparative 1 charts; it is 'Concluded that demand for manufacturing output has been rfstmined during- the .past 10 years almost lo the -point where increased caiiRiimpUon must become inevitable. : ; "It seems reasonable to conclude (hut the outbreak of war has been merely the spark needed to loUch oil' the latent demand for goods suggested by the. marked disparity since 192!) between the growth of the population' and. ttie '• trend of industrial production," Tho Annalist declares. It follows as y corollary that if a sharp decline would come after the cessation of hostilities,' business would shortly tind its level again and proceed with the interrupted expansion. Furthermore, an increasingly liirgc group of American economists and industrialists say ' that if the United Stales enters the war, the posl-wiir outlook would be black. Excessive profits during the period of the war would be clipped by high taxes. Even though there might be enough left lo give industrialists ;ui ample share, tlie somber al'ler-cfl'ccls do not appeal to .business men today. This country 'floes not want another 1929, Excesses in (he business cycle must be eliminated in favor of a steady market flow. War profiteering, in it's most sinister connotation, ran produce no healthy results. So far, American business men want none of it. For the most pait, lhe\ have expressed their e lo udc with the normal trend, foregoing' tlio" hnsly profits that may later lead to ruin. Politics Reawakens The moratorium on politics is almost over. As soon as Congress brushes away the neutrality bill, members will feel conscience-free once, more to tackle partisan problems that have been waved aside. Not that the special session so far has been virtuously free of politics, but it has come about as close as any session can be expected lo come. •Whether or not Congress remains watchfully in session; whether or not other matters, postponed at the close of the regular session,'are taken up again—party and factional lines arc apt to be swiftly drawn. There isn'l much time to lose. Too nine)) limn has already been sacrificed in the noble cause of peace. A presidential election is only a year away. Normally, pro-convention candidates would already be in full swing. There's a lot of catching up l.o be done. Politicians are nervously twiddling their thumbs, waiting for a chance to let loose. They'll be out with the ttrsl robin of spring—if they don't gel the jump on the robin. l<\\nuy—Qr Just l j hi>ny?] The war, as it slides into the beginning of its third month, eonlimie.s to get funnier and funnier—or phonier and phonier, depending on how you look at it. Propaganda writers are the only ones working while generals twiddle their thumbs and play lit-tat-toe on the backs of their field maps. The British opened Ihc attack by dropping bundles of pamphlets over Germany. Nsm troops are taking radio loudspeakers into : the trenches and blaring soothing words Into Freijch lines. . Correspondents, apparently, are having (he best lime'of all. They've been taking laxicabs right up to the French lines. Those writers who like sightseeing have been taken on conducted lours through Maginot fortifications. The most 'incredible thing that has happened to the newsmen so far was receipt of the announcement (hat if they had left their own servants in Pan's, they should apply (o lield headcjunrlers and orderlies would be assigned.

"Gee, but it's swell to sec you again," she whispered. "Okay . . . okay," lie replied soothingly. "Let's have it. You wouldn't be popping in here on me for nothing." He held her o/f at arm's length , bach. "I just wasn't prepared to hear your voice." And (lien jn a more brusque tone: "Anything I can do for you?" "Truth of the matter Is/' she confessed, "I was calling Keith. But he wasn't in, so I thought I'd ask how your hand was. We heard nliout it over the radio." "Oh nice of you. Guess it'll heal up in good shape. Ought to be okay for the Pitt game." Silence for a moment. "Anything else?" he concluded, solicitously. "No . . . nothing. Just tell Keith J called, will you. It won't be necessary for him to call back, though.',' And then she hung up. * * • * T ATE that night she decided she was couple of going home days. Jt was for long lime fiince she had seen her father. And she felt she needed him just then. She was getting that mixed- up feeling again. Maybe he could EtraiKiiten hrr out. She buried her head in the pil- lov,' as the fears came (o her eyes. She needed him to reassure her. She would Icnve tomorrow. U came as a surprise to tho girls at lunch the next day. "I'm eoing lo t.-ikc a plane," she told them. "Don't know when I'll be boclc. Maybe Thursday maybu 1'riday . . . maybe—oh, I dtin't know when. . . ." . And then she was rushing out Ihe door to her waiting cab. She felt better once the huge transport plane, was'up in the air. She relaxed in her seat and stared Germany today for immediate eviction across the border Into Poland. Midnight was the deadline for the .orceri exodus.

"Wait— belter yet," lie continued. "Let's have dinner first ond then go back \<i Ihe house and talk there. We'll take oft' our shoes and have a reaj, old-fashioned lazy night at nome. Hovr about it?" It sounded perfect to her. Three hours later she was stretched lazily in his luxuriant apartment. She leaned back in a soft cliair and kicked qfl her shoes. ''How long's it been since you were up at the place in. Connecticut?" slip asked. "Couple ot months at least. Haven't • had Hmc to get away. Much too busy. But never mind nie— let's talk about you.

She got up and curled up on the sofa beside him. She told him about Keith. She admitted her interest in him, confessed further that il might be love. "I—T just don't know. It's funny, Pops. I always thought I'd know it when, the real thing came along. Do you think this could be it without it smacking me square between the eyes?" . He patted her hand.

Must be ofl-center. Must be, eh?" Off-center, as he put it, was the last tiling Dan Webber was, she informed him. "He's just too durned, level-headed. He has a reason for everything he does. Honest, Pops, lie's so serious about things he scarp? me." J. G's. voice boomed. "Too Serious, hey? According to you, anyone who looks where he's go- Ing is too serious. Knowing you as I dp, f can discount that 70 per cent. What's this young man doing besides playing football? Don't tell me he's studying archeology or something." "Almost as stuffy," she replied.
