[SIDE GLANCES By George Clark THURSDAY, Model of Good Will The United States and Canada joined hands recently to dedicate restored Fort Niagara,- jil the foot of Lake Erie; and while the colorful ceremonies drew much public attention, the whole occasion really should have been impressed on our attention even more strongly. For this celebration emphasized a familiar but still profoundly important fact; namely, that the long frontier between Canada, and the United States has been unfortified for 117 years. In a world that bristles with interim-' tional fears anil rivalries, here are two great nations so supremely confident that they will keep the peace with each other that they let their joint frontier go entirely undefended. It is a unique achievement in international relations, and restoration of the old bastions of Fort Niagara is simply a symbol'of'it. The people of the two nations have a right to be exceedingly proud. "Well; let's ask them for this week-end and if they, can't make it, se much the better."

There were Iced drinks to the big refrigerator In the roomy, shabby kitchen. Salads, crisp rolls, mountainous custards tempted your appetite. Balh calls foamed pink or green In the big tub and the feeling or crisply ironed silks next to freshly ponderer], sun-browned &k!n was infinitely delicious. . . . All this was changed now. Mrs. Mooner's rooms baked and sweltered under a broiling sky. Morn- Ings were brief Interludes of peaceful coolness but before 10 o'clock the store itself was a a Inferno. At noontime you went wanly in search of'food, but nothing was inviting. The limp lettuce leaves In the cafeteria, tho howls of sandwich nlx- tures at ttie fountain- lunchroom : appalled you. At nlsht, dragging a. weary homeward, way on blistered and swollen feet, you saw golted children playing IB gutters strews with dirt and chat Sometimes a Ore hydrant played; and then tbe street' urchins were delirioui with lor. their soaked, tatlired clothes clinelng to their thin bodies. There was one solid week in June wlien the sky was an Inverted bowl of brass — merciless, unclouded. Then on Saturday rain fell, drenching the parched and grateful earth in the parks.

Mooney offered the Information that she had "three married daughter* in Jersey but she won't ttay with a wan ot thim!" "I'm enjoying it—all this." Boots said, indicating with a gesture the breeie riffling the mended curtains, the qniet and order of her small domain. How strange It was, she had been thinking only a moment ago, that this room bad seemed so forbidding, so even shabby to her eight months before. Now the'sag- ging 'nod, the worn cushions and :o7crlet all spelled sanctuary to her. It was upon that flat, narrow bed that she fluns herself gratefully when she was weary and discouraged. Mrs. Mooney, satisfied, went out, rustling In black taffeta, and presently Boots heard tho Joor slam after Mrs. Dawson who had smiled etiflly and primly at the young girl n white with her gilt curls spread lanwiso over the clialr hack. Dools was utterly alone. Tho big, empty apartment was very still. Mrs. Mooney's other roomers, two silent, smiling Irish boys who worked for a big chain store uptown, had taken heir rattan suitcases and departed ,he night before, bound on some hilarious expedition to Summit. Boots was alone. Presently, she told herself drowsily, she would take her little blue teapot (from the dime store) from tbe cuphoard; she would go out to tho silent, scoured kitchen with Its eternally dripping tap and its linoleum; she would make herself some tea and nibble crackers. • • • - • TMJT the peace and tho silence wera too much for her.
