Waicli Out for th- Ghost, nf 1915-17 Back in 1935, '1C, and '17, when hull' the world was lighting. President Woodrow Wilson \vn.s hnving a pack of trouble keeping the seas clear for American merchantmen. In fact, lie had so much trouble that he finally decided on April G, 1917, lo i;el into the light himself. Today the United Stales has a ncu- ti-ality law, the chief function of which is to keep us out of involvements in the euiTcnl war. Yet, the State !)c- paprtment .still finds it necessary from time to lime to dispatch curt little notes, particularly to Britain, reminding the English that, for all theorcli- cal purposes, the seas are, still dee. The- present session of Congress has its eye on the situation. According to Washington Columnist IJrucc Cation, Representative Melviii Mans (Ken., Minn.) will shortly introduce it bill asking Congress to hall exports ol' war materials from this country to any nation which is guilty of seizing American vessels illegally or which holds such vessels for iinreasonable lengths of time. American vessels have been held for two or three weeks while sillied authorities have .searched the holds for contraband. Jl has been delicately hinted that the British government, loyal ever to its own merchant fleet, may be co-operating with shipping interests. At least it is known that British shippers watch cargoes that are delayed on '..American vessels and then tell exporters that if they throw Iheir business to the English fleet, no delays will be incurred. So far no American lives have been lost through sinking of American' vessels. Refugee Americans have perished on foreign boats, but this isn't quite the same thing and hasn't succeeded jn arousing any fiery show of temper ou the part of the people. Congress and American shippers, nevertheless, are beginning to feel lhat the situation )iad better be cleared up soon. The British are now considering a protest from Postmaster General Farley sent through the State Department, concerning delays in mails bound for Germany. The categorical answer expected will not satisfy Farley nor Congress unless the British do 'something about getting shipments Ihrouj'h faster. Freedom of the .seas is, of course ., quaint tradition during time of war The rights of belligerent nations are always bumping into the rights of ncu- OUT OUR WAY s. Belligerents luivo Uic, right to pursue n course of action tliril will heip them win the war; and neutrals .sliouW be permitted to do everything (o stay clear of it. Rut everybody uses tlie name sea, and "rights"'sometimes gel iKiclly jumbled up. U is difficult to understand the Kng- lisli point of view in this dispute. II is no secret tluit ( Britain would lil<o to the UHifcd Slates UK n "neutral filly" if it t'finnot have us as an active one. 11 is possible that England feels our .sympathies arc ,so strongly anli- Niini tlmt wo can boar a bit of pushing around. At all events, the United States must lake great pains now to handle this delicate matter adroitly. We don't want to become aroused by "incidents." It was a collection of .such "incidents" that led us into the war 23 years ago. With an additional $<K)0,000,CK)0 tax levy slfii'ing them in Ihc face, congressmen arc meditating over what (hey can do about it in an election year. President Roosevelt suggested u super (a.v on incomes. Senator Robert III. La Polletlo, Jr. (Prog., Wis.), has long fostered a concrete- proposal to broaden Ihc income lax base. Now Senator Put Harrison (Dem., Miss.), has another idea, just the opposite. Senator Harrison suggests that income surtaxes in the highest brackets be cut. He proposes a reduction from 'the present 75 per cent maximum to a GO per cent. top. Through such a plan, he predicts, capital would be turned loose for new investments, re-employ men I, and general expansion which would ultimately be reflected in greater tax returns for the government.. No matter what the merits of the plan may bo, it will be sure to attract a number of electioneering congressmen. What could be sweeter at this season than a plan to increase the tax yield by decreasing the tax rate? Pace Comrade Slaliu of the Soviets has changed his mind. There will be no "blitzkrieg" in Finland. What poppycock, said official Russian communiques, to assume that the Ked army thought for a moment it could squelch the Finns with a lightning -stroke. It seems that however badly the Finns may sweep up the Soviet army, Joe Stalin's press agents will have the world believe their boss planned it that way. • SO THEY SAY It is amazing how factories engaged in producing peacetime implements can divert their production to those of war almost overnight. -Engineer Vice Admiral Sir Harold Drown, director, British ammunition production. * * » The peace lhat followed an allied victory in Europe almost certainly would be followed ijy ;i rapid disappearance of trade barriers through- cm a reor B anized Europe.

Now, even jf slic could have recd her pride, if slic could facud her fiance with her beauty disfigured from the blow o/i the Moravia, she could never have matched Vincent's pace. Things had gone too far ahead while sho lay hi the hospital. And it ever the adage, "three's a crowd," was applicable, it was now. Her loneliness seemed almost more (han she could bear.

The coat lhat Lady Poncc-Townsend had provided was all too thin for this cold, wet wind. Her feet dragged along the streets and up the stairs to the .rooms in iioho Square. And there was no cheery fire blazing in the grate as there had been yesterday. Without stopping to remove her wet coat she sat clown at the writing table. WllhoufWen thinking what she wrote, the words formed: Dear Dr. Lenox: Tlie offer of marriage you made last night overwhelmed me with its generosity.

The sight of him renewed her courage, don'l (hinlt you will regret this decision," he said seriously. "It isn't thai I will ever- bother you. Your "ersonal life will be as free ,-is if always i, as been." Mary nodded. Thai was one ol Ihc reasons she had held back.

Why is it (hat men like Gilbert Lenox arc always second choices (o the Vincent Greggs?" Bui to love Vincent had been nor destiny and lo escape Ins love she could not. Nor would she ever stop loving Vincent. And was she aemg lair to Vincent? After all he thought her dead.

"Blue's my bcsl color," she decided. "Blue it will be." The right rfiade would accentuate Ihe color of her eyes thai the accident on lie Moravia, for ai! its malevolence-, had not been able lo li.-irm. She was pleased with a royal blue frock with jaunty pleats and close-fitting bodice. And it even had a jacket that woulc! do away with, the shroud-like black coat Lady Ponee-Townscnd had given her. The outfit, even in winter, seemed (o promise spring. A close-fitting lorjue of Ihe same color had a smartness that was almost American. And its fingertip veil would cast merciful uncertainty over the marred side of her face. A gold clip, new gloves, hose ^ and oxfords of London tan gave Mary an exhilaration she had not fell in months. But all (he time she busied herself with these outward details she battled with her conscience] too. On the marriage record's she must give the name of Anna Winters. Hitherto her masquerade hat! hurt no one. Would it be wrong to lake this legal step without revealing her own idenlily? In the end, she had her answer. Tins ceremony was io be an impersonal contract—not a marriage at all. If she betrayed her real idcn(i(y now she would be sent back lo America. Some day she would make everything clear to Gilbert Lenox. * * s gATUSDAY found Dr.*Lenox ! and his bride-to-be en route to ' the registry. "Cheer up, little sober sides," V Gilbert said, looking at her kindly 1 as the taxi bounced over the cob- ' hies. "There isn'l n tiling lo worry : about. From now on, everything will be all right!" ° Iccted as she murmured her lhanks. "Thoughtful, above all." She had not included that in the swift catalog of his qualities. When she spoke it was hard io express the fullness of her gratitude. "You are much, much loo good. You deserve the finest wife in the world." "I'm not complaining about the wife I'm going to get," he said quietly. "Even if she is to be a wife in name only." * ^ * :". r jPHE next day Mary, went "shopping to nearby Selfridgcs, the American department store in Ox- In the bright winter sunlight, Mary found herself relaxing under the doctor's thoroughly competent | guidance. He'd saved her life when she had been at death's door and now he was determined on further salvage of. Ihc pitiful thing he'd saved. Somehow, (he shock of seeing Vincenl Gregg with Carla Mav- chetta no longer seemed EO appalling. The blight of loneliness, terrifying and chilling, seemed to lessen when she was with Gilbert. When the clerk in the registry askcci if she, Anna Winters, took this man, Gilbert Lenox, for her lawfully wedded husband, she hesilaled only a second. Then her- voice, which had been so muffled, spoke up clearly— "I do!" (To Be Conlinucciy THE FAMJLY DOCTOR Milk Made Safe Againsl T, B. Germs, Onaiily Unharmed by Pasteurization By IHi.
