HITLER OVERLOOKED THIS Aiiclicn, wliopc capture has often been reported of Into, should by riylits have been Hitler's cnpitiil.

ABOLISHING BARBARISM Orvillc Prcsfott of the Xe\v York Times, reviewing a biography of .Bancroft, the historian, writes: ''The twentieth century, with its abundant evidence [licit humanity can revert to. ferocious barbarism as readily as it can inch forward townrd Utopia, would have been 0 shattering blow to George .Bancroft's entire philosophy of life and history." It might be a shuttering blow to almost •nny one who keenly surveys these times, considering the calmness and peace which seemed to prevnil over nearly all the earth before (jennany and Japan broke- Iriosi—and tho actual situation right now. The.' "ferocious barbarism" is present on two great battlefields, which together cover most of tin.- world, Ifow deep-seated is this barbarism, and how extensive, and how long will it last? Kvery thoughtful* person would like to know. AVar itself, even while in good hands it, aims to end existing wars, may find them widening, and wrong-minded men may start, wars which seemingly have no end. The only remedy apparently is a strong, continuous orgaiii/.ation of nations for pence, such as was sought at Hie end of the last great war, but failed for laclc of political and racial unity. It is something which all men and women of intelligence and good will should be thinking about. THE FRIENDLY TOUCH Tt was an admirable characteristic of former Senator George '\\'. Nun-is, one of the gix-jit liberals of the last half-century, that hu could differ with, other men on vital public policy and still keep their friendship. This simple fact is worth remembering. Ton often men in best of intentions. become entangled about public policy was a man who never pretended to know everything, but who quietly and modestly did far moi'u for this country than manv who stormed ,-;::d blustered. public life, willi the dlow themselves to in bitter quarrels uid procedure.

"Paris, tho beginning spot, where bored and virtuous citizens may go and be as ii.-mghty iis they think they want to be.". . ."The beautiful Puns!" Paris was indeed a fascinating city, the last time I was there, about six years ago.. But iheru are also fascinating cities in the United States. And gayoty. And "beau-coup diablerie."

Is'ettic Rosensiein told a Washington audience that the United States could never make the fabrics, the rich, boaVtiful fabrics the French make. Why not? We have proved that we can mnke anything and everything in this country. And make it at a moment's order. So why cannot we make rich and beautiful fabrics? We can. Tho only reason \vo cannot make rich and beautiful fabrics and chic costumes (this is a possibility, not an actuality 1 an; mentioning) is beauce we wring GUI' hands and say "Oh! Oh! V/c arc not as clever as those Parisiennesl" We as clever. But wo arc also servile in our reliance on French taste. Already there are ecstasies of praise for the French shops, "the most divine French shops." Certainly there are divine French shops .But there are also divine American shops.

Already stories have come out "f Lhe French capital—"Paris is still iho fashion center of the uni- v'ci'sc!". ."Paris, dressmakers and designers stili (.he Rreatest livinff artists with needle and im.igina- tion!" I cannot quite believe this. Wr are succumbing to the old legend awiin. During the past few years, while the Paris dressmakers ware hold in bounds by the German invaders, the women of the United States had to buy the clothes the American designers thought up for them. So obedient had we been to the whims of pre-war Paris that American designers in the first days of their independence scorned unable to cone with their sudden responsibility. Within u. 1'ow months,- however, they shook thoughts of French domination out of their snarled threads and set to work. The results of thnii- efforts have been the most becoming clothes ever made under war-time restrictions. Dross clesiprninK. so the geniuses therein tell rue. is mostly a matter of looking at old prints, o:d paint-. d :P.aris in the hey day of the French capital—the Louvre and the Galcrie La Fayette could not compete in stock or equipment with the number three shops of cities like Cleveland. Kansas City, Detroit. Philadelphia. Cincinnati, Pittsburgh. As 1'or the art treasures of Paris and the other European cities—the National Gallery in Washington has many priceless canvases and marbles. So of course have the ls"c\v York. Chicago, Philadelphia. Boston. Cleveland and St. Louis fi'al- lories. I hope wu don't cringe again before that empty phrase "The culture of Europe." The war should have taught us its hollownoss. | Wo need to sell our own good qualities to ourselves. Heaven help us, if once.again we flnd ourselves on our knees to the Old World.
