Re hts should be backed old halloween custom trying get a preview of the future husband the isms Ake solid against repeal be ship and mailing list of the american league for peace and democracy. The average Loyal american up by Good lefts. Senators who opposed repeal by these mat f % i pc i riot ill Senrra of a a a a a amp of the arms embargo say that they had no Hope from the Start that they could defeat repeal in the Senate but they deemed the prolongation of debate Good strategy. They believed it would give the people a Chance rally such a show of hands against repeal that the House of representatives might be persuaded veto the upper body. That idea is based of course in the Assumption that a majority of those who take the trouble express themselves Are against repeal. We believe the theory is Correct but that does not mean we believe a majority of the american people Are opposed repeal. On the contrary we incline the opinion that a majority favor repeal. Sampling of Public opinion done by More or less dependable lolling agencies strongly suggests a majority for repeal. May we not say without unfairness that All of the principal divisions of the a a isms which Are denounced from time time As subversive of americanism Are zealously fighting repeal i the nazi influenced groups the communists and All of the Varico lored shirts Are opposed the arms embargo repeal. That is not the same As saying that All who oppose repeal fall into one of these groups. We recognize not Only that Many profoundly patriotic citizens who believe in our form of government and its essence Are against repeal but that the Issue has two sides worthy of consideration by such citizens. But the Simatic groups Are highly vocal in their objection repeal. The one Clear unmistakable demand of the american people is that they be kept out of the War. Congress hears that demand and respects it. We doubt whether a single member of Congress favors entry in the War. Yet despite individual assurances that there is no Chance of our involvement every citizen acquainted with his country a recent history and sensible of its spirit must realize that sentiment can change almost overnight. We can lie lured or pushed into the War by developments regardless of How Congress May feel about the matter now and regardless of the quite obvious almost Universal popular objection entry. The question of the hour is whether arms embargo repeal will reduce or increase the danger of involvement. With an Eye on the City of Flint Case which developed quite naturally under existing Law there is reason support the administration theory that the Sale of War materials All who come with their a Vin ships get them is less due lers. That average citizen is quite willing for thought and speech be free As Long As they Are not directed in conspiracy against his own free thought and speech. But he is becoming a bit restless these Days and he is not quite certain we surmise whether he ought condemn Dies As a Witch Hunter indulging a sordid procedures or As one Man w orking feverishly on a division of the sheep and the goats thus reasonably Well ahead of the time when something like definite classification will be vital the defense of this country from sabotage and other manifestations of treason. Exit s Acta probate worse than the decision Russia reached respecting the american ship City of Flint was the russian manner in dealing with our embassy about the matter. When the ship was in Harbor with its Fate in the balance the with dal cd e i. F. Is pts ask my a. A a. A of it a m a a a. A a a a a amp a i Fife.

Here reply la important. You has no arms her letter was Aith her toes. Cher was a Baptist minister in a Little North Carolina town. Rut he died a year ago. She was Horn perfectly formed in every Way except that she had no arms. From the very first she Learned do for herself and that has been her motto All her life.

And she expects later take a Law course and hang out her Shingle As a full fledged lawyer. I predict Shell be a successful one. No one with such grit and determination could fall. I quote from her letter a i have never thought of myself handicapped. I have always depended on myself. I can do almost anything that any Normal person can do. I dress myself i comb my own hair and apply my make up. I like music hut have never had lessons. I like it so much that i plan take music lessons along with Ray school work. I like dancing especially what a letter and what spirit she likes tap dancing she puts on her own make up. Hut i like Hest her mental attitude. She says she does not feel discouraged. This is exactly what she said a i do not feel discouraged. Not in the least. Quot i wish All my readers who Honor question As what had happened the american Crew. Efforts of the embassy get in touch with the Captain failed. During the several Days of uncertainty the russian government apparently did nothing simplify the Case for the United states authorities. When the russians decided what do they surrounded action with so much of a smoke screen that the embassy remained in doubt. Finally our government Learned that the nazi prize Crew had Boon ordered take tile ship away from russian har borage just As it was when it entered port.

The try Lon and per sphere Are fading and need new Coats of paint. The autumn chill has penetrated the dreamlike Panorama of Flushing Meadows the Gayety has diminished the leaves of newly planted Trees Are on the ground and so time has come place Gotham s pageant under wraps a while. There was a hot time in the old town while it lasted. Including the summer temperature. By now most of the visitors have returned Home and the souvenir shops that mushroomed All Over the City also Are putting up their shutters. The rubber neck Wagon guides Are hibernating too. Thank heaven for it Means that the Cornel a will be Safe for pedestrians during the Wanter. They used be cluttered up by gents who talk glibly out of the sides of their Mouths and would show you Grants Tomb and Chinatown for half of your weeks salary. In Short the carnival excitement is Over. Father Knickerbocker can loosen a notch in his knee britches now and put the toothpick Back in his Mouth. W a Clouds too ominous my own excursions the fair were few a but comprehensive. The last time some of us stormed Grover Whalene a Citadel we had dinner at the polish restaurant just before the holocaust in Europe. It was not an altogether Gay place that evening. The personnel a most of which was imported a had a premonition that it All would be Over soon. And it was even before any of them could return the colors. Many Are stranded Here men without a country. In a similarly poignant spot is the Little czechoslovakian Pavilion that carried on bravely under a modest subsidy All through the fair. It boasted a delightful restaurant also but after a while the native cuisine ran Short and so did the Stock of precious pre Lliter Pilsner Beer. In the Light of european events maybe it is Well that the fair is recessing. Huge buildings can shift with the ease of foreign policies and the International sights of the fair Are in curious juxtaposition. The soviet Nowr lined up with Hitler has its Pavilion a pebbles throw away from Britain a imposing exhibits a and not Many Yards away from the poles who have been swallowed up too by the stalkers. Belgium a Haleo Nied building is across the Road from the terraced French Pavilion which rather symbolizes their european Affinity. Italy surges loftily upward with haughty indifference whatever is happening around her. As if she were standing in the fair grounds on her neutrality. Yes foreign exhibitors make strange fair fellow. U Rong Way Periscope the edifice of tile user is a costly and elaborate pile of Marble Glass Gold Granite and a even rubies. It cries out on every Wall that the russian peasant has risen from serfdom self estate. It seems have been put together with meticulous care. But anyone of a cynical mind would take Delight in the sight of a Friend of mine pointed in a propaganda mural a Mojik Peers through a Telescope All wrapped up in astronomical science it would have been a Fine picture if the Telescope were not turned the wrong Way As it was. The Mojik was merely getting a microscopic View of his profuse Beard. Maybe the soviet moralists take the same upside Down View As the chief bolshevik.
