LENOX TIME TAIJLE. LENOX. IOWA Will Efficiency in Killing Bring About Peace on Earth? Famed Publicists, Thinkers Answer Much-Mooted Question. Will nations ever abandon war? Will efficiency In killing hasten Its •ndl I» peace on earth possible? These questions were put to famous publicists and thinkers by Cosmopolitan Magazine. Among those who give their opinions are: Oswald Spengler, Arthur Brisbane, Havelock Ellis, Mrs. F. D. Roosevelt, and Amelia Barhart Putnam. Preparedness was advocated by some, a better understanding between nations, and taking of profits out of war by others. Havelock Bills says: "1 have no doubt whatever that a permanent world peace Is possible and will be achieved when the will to It exists. There is no war among the animals nearest to man and no evidence of Its existence In early man's history. It Is a phase of human development •which may once have been beneficial In aiding social discipline and cooperation but today, In the opinion of the majority of people, It has become useless and mischievous. Even when successful, It falls to achieve the security for which It Is chiefly waged." Arthur Brisbane says: "World peace will come when some nation or group of nations becomes powerful and civilized enough to put on end to war, If necessary, as Cardinal Richelieu put an end to dueling by executing a few that fought duels. . . . Efficiency In killing will hasten Its e.Md. 'Elimination of inferior races' may continue for a while after 'civilized' nations cease killing their 'equals' with the consent and approval of the 'equals.'" Oswald Spengler says: "If there were to take place In Asia today a great uprising against the white race, countless white people would join In It because they are tired of the peaceful life. Pacifism will remain an Ideal, war a fact, and If the white peoples are determined to lead no more, the colored races will, and they will become the rulers of the world." Amelia Earlmrt Putnam says: "1 believe war can be outlawed, but not until mere living offers a substitute for the beguiling pageantry of the military; nor until mental attitudes change through such basic economic Recordi of Achievements More names, dates and records of achievements are carved In the rocky ellffs of the Dog river near Beirut, Syria, than In any other spot on earth. For the past 3,000 years this gorge has been a favorite pass for armies marching between Africa and the East and few conquerors, from the pharaohs of Egypt to the marshals of France, have failed to leave inscriptions on its rocks. adjustments as rational control of population and of the production and distribution of life necessities." Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt: "Permanent world peace Is a possibility; a probability only It tne world as a whole determines that self-preservation demands organization for peace Instead of war. We cannot expect to make any treaties which will not need change. We must find a basis on which representatives of the people may meet and calmly consider changes occurring throughout the world, and the needs arising therefrom. It Is obvious that populations will change and economic conditions vary. If we realize that the ultimate good of all Is more advantageous than the temporary good that may accrue to one nation or to one Individual, we will be able to meet questions that arise and adjust them In a sane and reasonable manner." A Dressy Frock Fitting Budget PATTERN 9545 MURDOCH was a thief. i For a year and a half he had lived well, mingled In good so- :lety, and occasionally baffled the police with a "little job." He wasn't greedy. He took just enough to keep himself In comfort and to permit the privilege of certain charities. To Tom Murdock the appeal of his profession was not profit but the ever-present danger. He reveled in that Until the Morrison's New Year's eve ball. He had gone, not to welcome In the New Year, but because of the opportunity the revelry would afford for a rich haul. It was by merest chance he met the girl. He might have gone on all evening, dancing with fat old dowagers who gratefully called him "a dear boy," and sizing up their jewels at his convenience. But one of these "prospects" Introduced him to her niece. "She's been wanting to meet you, dear boy I I've told her all about you, and she says you are the man she's looking for." He knew, the moment they met, that he belonged to her. "I'm full of good resolutions tonight," he told her, "all because I've met you." "I don't take much stock In New Year's resolutions myself," she answered, "but I did moke one—not to wear many jewels tonight. There BRISBANE THIS WEEK Alas, One Rich Man Only!

THE NEWSBOY'S GREETING By FRANCES GRINSTEAD I T WAS a frosty morning in the days of Franklin stoves. The paper carrier, a small boy wrapped In a red and black striped muffler, his nose and eyes showing beneath a cast-off plush cap of his father's and wearing a nondescript coat once big brother's, slipped in the door of the hardware store with an armful of newspapers. He blew his cold breath in the chill air and held his hands to the rapidly heating stove. Only then did he muster nerve to fish in the coat pocket hanging near his knees, and to proffer, with the morning paper, a New Year's card elaborately printed In two or What Is Important today may be nothing tomorrow; what was nothing yesterday may become all Important now. Once man was helpless without his horse, camel, ox, yak, ass, mule, reindeer, dog sled or tame elephant. Now, in civilization, they mean little, while Lloyd George tells you, "Oil is the decisive factor In the Abyssinian campaign." Of all the great powers whose attitude Is being canvassed, that of King Gasoline Is most Important. Without oil, Mussolini cannot win his war; with oil, victory Is certain. Japan at the naval conference will consider nothing less than a battle fleet as big as any the United States may build; no 5-5-3 ratio. No American should object to that, If Japan can afford It. It Is not the size of the fleet that counts. Unfortunate Spanish grandees in charge of the great Armada could testify to that, after they met Elizabeth's small fleet and big sea captains.

I promise I'll come right back. I won't be out of your sight, you know, and you can shoot if I try to get away." "Here she comes now. Tell her anything you like." She Joined them. "Oh, here you are. I thought you were right behind me. Why, Captain Barry! What's the matter?" "You know him?" asked Tom In surprise. "Yes, we're oM friends. But why—?" "My dear, It's going to take longer, maybe a lot longer than I thought. I can't ask you to wait- but may I at least write you now and then?" "You're going away?" He nodded. "Of course, write to me. Here's my address." She wrote nervously, crumpled the first card, and gave him the second. "I'll write to you, too," she promised. "I— I think I love you, Tom." She turned and fled. "Well, let's get going." The two men crossed the 'dance floor, got their wraps, and went out together Into the cold night. "I'd like to ask one favor, captain," Tom said. "Please don't tell her. I couldn't stand for her to know." "Me tell?" He thought of a, crumpled calling card, slipped into his hand, that he had read while putting on his coat "Don't tell him I was the detective who tipped you off he'd be here tonight." "Not me," the captain promised. That's my New Tear's resolution." 6 Vf^storn NnrPPtPV Union. WOULD love to live my life again," said my dear little old lady frlerid of ninety- four years, during the last of my regular visits to her, as she died within the month. "Live almost a century again," said I, almost catch- Ing my breath at the thought. "Yes," said she, "for I love life, I love it dearly." Living our lives again—we cannot do, but we can make a brave new start at the beginning o f each year. New Year's day is inventory day, when with mental reserve we should take physical, mental and spiritual stock of ourselves. At this time of cataloguing we must not let d 1 scouragement nor conceit look over our shoulders and overshadow us, for either brings our balance wrong. Life's purposes are measured eternally, cot by our goal. Our Improvement, not our result, marks our progress. Our Cheerful Cherub knew the secret when he said: One gave his only coat away, And his heart was like warm gold, Another drew his fur coat close But his heart grew still more cold. "One true measure of success," one modern philosopher said, "Is the ratio between what we might have been and what we might have done, on the one han'd, and what we are and what we are doing on the other." Let us watch ourselves throughout the (new) year at our dally work, whatever it be, to see that our initiative does not lose Its creative apark, and degenerate into mere routine, for this is the reason why the world. Is mediocre and gray. Benjamin Franklin advises— ''If you have two loaves of bread, one under each arm, sell one and buy a hyacinth for your soul." In a word, this coming New Year la a chance to begin again. "Expect everything, an'd aome of it will happen." Also, there Is the fact that If real war started, above the clouds and under water, every fighting nation would hide Its battleship targets out of airplane sight, In safe harbors; many battleships or few would make no difference. •55?

This he offered shyly, with a retreating motion toward the door.

Henry left the stove's Increasing warmth with more haste than usual, In order to make his New Year's call upon Miss Mattle, milliner and dealer In thread, needles and buttons. With her and with others on his route—from the mayor to the grocer and blacksmith—he left the dally paper and a copy of the an- ual work of art from his editor's prlntshop, conveying In lines that rippled with eloquence the paper carrier's hope that his patrons would wax prosperous and maintain a state of general good health "throughout the glad New Tear." Each of his customers would express an agreeable surprise and a gratifying knowledge of what was expected, responding with gifts that ranged from the hardware man's dime to the mayor's <Qfty cents. Among the samples of work done which printing offices so seldom throw away, there must rest many examples of the carrier boy's card of thirty to fifty years ago. It was a widespread custom. Under the dusty eaves of one prlntshop has lain a carrier's card that will soon round out its century of aging yellowness. The 120 lines of the "poem" it bears deal with the fleeting character of Time, present the merits of Henry Clay over William Henry Harrison, and end with this verse: The Ladles Fair!

Tissue from dead eyes has been successfully transplanted to living eyes, and there is hope of thus car- Ing certain types of blindness. England has always acted like one "walking on eggs" in dealing with Japan, but she does say that Japan's proposed seizure of Chinese territory "harms the prestige of Japan and hampers the development of friendly future relations between Japan and her friends." Walter C. Teagle, head of Standard OH of New Jersey, did not make a deal to supply Mussolini with all his oil for thirty years, casually arranging to finance the Italian oil market up to $300,000,000. Mr. Teagle says so, and It Is so. But when the wise John D. Rockefeller once said, "I want to see my managers, their desks cleared and their feet on the desks studying how to make money for Standard Oil," he had men like Walter Teagle in mind. In Georgetown, British Guiana, a kindly clergyman sprinkled a tiny negro baby Just born, naming him "Roosevelt Selassie Caleb."
