Nineteen thirty-nine is slightly more than two years away from us, and so many things can happen in tho'je two ycais that, when 193!) finally docs come, if, may lake an uncommonly brave man to look ahead lo "tomorrow" wilh any comfort. The dictators of Europe, for instance, ought to find two years plenty of tune to get woild politics into a snail that only the sword can cut. The Japanebe and the RuHsiaiib between them, aided by the confusing factions of China, ought iunuhuly to be able lo have the Asiatic situation in a complete and permanent mess by that time, s instead of the moilesl GO per cent mess 'that they have got it into as of today , iBut all of this, of, is not the roil ol thing you would put in a \voild's fail. Instead, this New Year show ^will give us darling displays "of mail's scientific and technological advances. All the spcctaloi will have to do will bo to hope that the, race's un- .mjitohxxl talent for making hash of "its'"'liiinian iclaUoi'iship's w 'wi'll leave h]ni/jitive_J.o gjnoy ( thebb J)lp$^])HS. ^1 Ami,it is right there that'!'tlfe most .*iuilii£nig and vexing problem of the century conies to a' focus. ' Mankind lias passed ' through .some thousands of ycais of apprenticeship in the task of Ic.uninghow to make lhe physical vvoild a comfortable place in which to live Now,' as he goes into the second thud of the 20th century of Christianity, he scorns lo have finished Ins apprenticeship. lie is ready lo iix things so that all hands can at last ha\e enough of cvciything.

Dnt jnst as wo begin to exult in OUT OUR WAY this picture, we discover that the collects c folly of the race weighs dnvn the other side of the balance. We use the genius of our chemist;! to malm poison gas and high explosives; l^c miracle of Ilighl. to niako war nij'c ilesliuctivc than ever buforo; high-speed li.tvcl and commwiicalioils !o make war and depression worldwide in scope and effects.

The suggestion that colleges-'ami universities openly put their football l->.yeis on straight italarics-M'oiced the other day by Arthur R. Adams, dean of the College of Business Administration at tlm University of Oklahoma—is a refreshing approach to a topic which is usually cloake'l in pretense. "Whether 'we like it or not," says Dean Adams, "college football ha.s been Ijoth/dcinocrali/.cd and highly professioiuli/cd. Whj hhonjd colleges not agree on an open policy of reasonable compensation to athletes for the .speciali/ed and valuable .soivices they render the institutions?" Well, why not'' A univeisity uses its football team ,is a ciulcli— a university that uses it to atUs-cl students, pi ovule levcmie, and obtain great gobs ol publicity—has little ica- son ito be sanctimonious about it. A boy who has been biought to college to plav football, and who would not be theie at all it he vvcic not a good athlete, might jiibt as. well be put on it salary.

They were v/aStened next morning by AHhy's heavy slop on (lie stair and her matter-of-fact voice calling, "Brcakfus!" Kale, the first to be aroused, cnllcd "Caroline!" and threw pillow nt her sister in the other bed. It was a new experience for them to shiire a room. The morning sun shone in pleasantly, howcv r cr, and a delicious smell of pancakes and bacon came "up from below. At breakfast the girls greeted their grandfather with cordial clicei'fulncss, suspecting that their, own feelings of having been lorn up by the roots and set down in a briar-patch were as nothing compared to his. . •. The meal had not progressed far when Caroline suddenly asked' in a disturbed voice, ''Isn't this oiuv best table cloth, Kate?" : .. . ; Kate gave the matter her attention. "Why, yes, I think it is," she replied. Investigation proved the cloth to. be' 1 lour times folded,yet still touching the lloor at the ' table's corners. Althy entered, bearing a plate of hot pancakes, and Caroline said to her, "Whatever made you' put on the best cloth, Althy, on a day like this'.'" The old woman passed the cakes and avoided their eyes. "It was in' neat, Major Sam. 1't seem like a person ought lo use big table cloths whenever dey can/ 1 Something in his manner and Pointless answer made Major Meed come alert. Lifting up u- corner of the cloth, he looked intently at the table leg and said. Well! So that's it!" Kate and Caroline hastily did likewise tind saw what their grandfather saw. Zeke had brought the handsomely carved drop-leaf serving table from tlic dining room of Meed Meadows. The Major said sternly, "I told you we'd eat off one of those deal tables that stood in the kitchen, Zeke! I told you the dining room set went to Mr. Howard when he look over the house! Do you want to make a thief out of me?" lie glared in genuine £iger. "Yessir, Major Sam," replied Zekc with unruffled calmness. "You done tolc mo dat. I remembers. I remembers pcrfeck. But there's somothin* you done forgot yourself, Major Sam. Dis here little table don't belong to dc dinin 1 room set. It's a heap older. It done come wiff ole M»s when she married you an* moved in wiff her trunlcs from Fayelte county^ She say her pappy's people used it in Virginny, bade before de first war!" • . Then the four of them began to laugh and talk at once, and Althy came in-to;takc part in tlie "mira- tion." ; - and ig'^to Zcke's idler," she replied. * * * IT ATE snM to the Major ; Caroline, "This is gellm.,. __ be a mystery. Call Zekc in, Gran'- djd, and ask him about it. Won't you?" '/ .' The Major raised his voice-and quavered imperatively, "Zekc!'Oh Zcke!" and the old colored man entered, smiling affably. Major Meed said, "We're just curidusi Zekc, about this table cloth. Why did you tell Althy to put it on the table this morriin" "specially?" Zekc's eyes carefully examined the toes,of his worn shoes. Then he' offered, "A big table cloth covers up de lablo legs so nice Q ATE /and Caroline carried a •.pjece >of paper and a pencil a round with them and took notes. Kate's first-riole said, "Stove must corrie down!" That, she. and Caroline ; agreed, vvas the first step in making tlie living room presentable for the summer. They had left the old Brussels carpels on the floors at Meed Mcack . ; {not even Kate, the ruthless, "had thought of tcnrins, them-up) and now there was the question of covering these rough pine floors.' They decided on plain neutral-colored matting ' for all rooms. They would scatter over this the Hooked rugs which theii grandmother had made. Caroline said, "We'll' have to put : thc .walnut table in the middle of. {tie floor, for lack of wal sp5*e. The. love seats will balance 'most anywhere we put them Maybe we'd belter m-ike a focus of this Olio window, since there's no fireplace.". . ;i'.-In the Meed Meadows aitic the: had found a carved Victorian "center table" with -a cracUci marble top, and two love teats o walnut, upholstered v iri"fra'je( hdirsclolli.

We'll have to im.i omclhing cheap and deceiving." Caroline looked at her sister's bsorbed face and thought, "Whq:i ou'rc !n love, nothing really m-i s on down! She's bent on making, u's i>lace slick enough to enter- ain Morgan in!" V * ft PII/YT evening, to Kate's .«ir- prise, .Morgan Prenliss drove ut from town in the June dusk, 'hey had no telephone now. so e came unheralded. They wore itling on the front porch when ,e drove tip. When he came in, a strong sense f embarrassment gripped thorn 1!. The Major soon stole away to attend to something at the table" and Caroline went to "help Althy unpack dishes." Kate..was eft alone with him. She said eagerly. ''The roses nre 0 beautiful, Morgan! Last night cried over them. Because I vvas lappy, I mean." "Did they cheer tho place up?" "Oil, a lot!" Kale told him ••arneslly. "They've cheered me up, loo. 'So Red the Rose"! You're darling spendthrift." "I thought you could seatler hem all around," he said encag-, ugly. "Some in every room." ^ "Well," Kate replied honizKy, I 'we haven't any vases unpacked yet. We had to put them in a his in milk can. And I set the can or the back porch in the shade .0 keep the roses frcsli— ~ He burst into laughter, looking offended and chagrined. "In a milk can! On the back porch! Lord, what tender sentiment!" Kate almost wept in distress. 'Oh, Morgan! Now that I think of it, it docs sound terrible! But 1 was only trying to save them. And 1 slept with your note under -riy pillow!" / ; She leaned toward him tenderly icniterit, childishly honest. Wiling him to understand. Wordlessly pleading wilh him to realize how devastating to her way the fall of lhe house of Meed, how cruel (his transplanting, how humiliating these new surroundings. Wanting tiim to see that she could keep tiis roses in a milk can on the back porch and still think them heavenly. But he leaned away from her, lighting a cigaref, nursing his injured pride. She saw his cameo bviturcs in the match's flare, and curl of his crisp black hair. She' wanted to caress his hair. But she dared not. He was too angry and remote. He punished her by talking of Elwell for half an hour. After that he forgave her and t; alyjut himself Then'he.madc love to her", and her heart meltad aga wilh happiness'"*' '.,-''•,.
