CHICAGO ' BOSTON. LOS ANGELES - SAN FRANCISCO

From the intriguing address of 20, Queens
Road, Leigh-on-Sea, Essex comes a letter written
by Major Allen Swinton, a distant relative who
has been spending most of his time since retiring
from active service writing short stories for
boys magazines. In the letter is an interesting
appraisal of the British militarist's viewpoint of
international affairs.
"The international situation over here re-
mains a strain," the Major writes, "And I antii-
pate another crisis shortly.'Nevertheless I feel a
bit more hopefl as 'I think the current British
policy must be the right one, otherwise the Axis
would not take such violent pains to break it
down. Tientsin, of course, items from Berlin-
first to try and isolate this country by making
you and the French back up for fear of getting
caught in our fracas and secondly to try and
draw our efforts off from Europe while they
pull some new coup.
"Neither, I think, will work. The English are
at last awake, ready to fight and rapidly assum-
ing their most dangerous mood. The axis could
nlot have played better the British hand if they
had tried and, in my opinion, Hitler is already
past his zenith-that point was the day he faced
Chamberlain at their last meeting, and the slide
therefrom began when he marched into Prague.
But unhappily it may require a war to prove
it. Even that, I feel, grows more unlikely as the
odds against him mount-with the one reserva-
tion that one of his nature, cornered, may stake
all upon a lightning yar, This, last September,
could quite likely have succeeded but I think not
now. If war should come today there would be
considerable lightnings upon German soil, as our
new Air Force is a wow. So, if we can but see
next Christmas without war, I for one shall feel
sanguine."
Major Swinton then goes on to give a techni-
cal, military description of what he feels the
Axis powers would do in the Mediterranean in
case of war. And, interestingly, he ends by say-
ing "Hearing as we do less and less of the Anieri-
can standard of living slogan and with more and
more relization of the narrowing scope of foreign
trade together with the possibility of a world to
live in without British power, which has always
been a sure ,shield for the Americas, the time

for a rapprochement or even of a free union of
the 36 states and the British Commonwealth is
ripe and the possibility greatly less remote than
many think."
* * *
Dexter Rosen at the S.A.M. house phones in a
fervent request that we plead with the sartorially
minded burglar who dropped into his room the
other night and stole a brown suit, brown tie,
brown shoes, brown shirt, studs, fraternity pin
and glasses, to think things over. Dexter says
he's not one to quibble and will gladly donate
some colorful underwear or maybe even a brown
hat if the burglar will return the glasses. "I am,"
he said a little unhappily, "getting damn tired
of groping."
A Symbolic Incident
We've never taken much stock in the trylon
and perisphere as the symols of the World of
Tomorrow. After all, they are just a bayonet
blade and a ball. To the cynical, it will seem that
the true symbol of the World of Tomorrow was
provided yesterday, when a mechanical para-
chute jammed and imprisoned a couple midway
between the tvp of the tower and the ground.
Label it: "Up in the Air-the World of To-
morrow." Completely wacky, woozy and cockeyed.
No secure anchorage to anything above, and no
solid foundation beneath. Just suspended in un-
certainty.
"Cokie" Rathborne and his wise-cracking wife
were lucky. They had a life-net beneath them.
If the World of Tomorrow jumps the track and,
whirs off into ideological space, there's no assur-
ance there will be anything to catch it.

Dickinson Goes
To A Party...
- f LD REPROBATE" is one endearing
O) term which wve will never be able-
to apply to the Governor; and more's the pity.
The Governor just recently returned from a
journey down to New York State, where he at-
tended the thirty-first Conference of Governors.
On his journey he attended a number of social
functions. He was accompanied at these by his
personal secretary and his granddaughter.
"Never would I have permitted either to have
gone without constant watch," he told reporters
when back in Lansing. "I knew what they were
going to face. What a responsibility. What aches
of mind. But I hadn't measured fully the new
liberties under repeal."
"Thank God our girls came home unsullied
and never will fully know how near the brink
they were."
Rot, my dear Governor, tommyrot. Your girls
came home "unsullied" and the chances are, so
did all the rest of the young people who enjoyed
themselves at the occasions. Just because alco-
holic beverages were served and couples danced
in a public place is no sign that aforesaid place
was immediately turned into a den of iniquity
from which no decent girl could emerge with a
pure soul and an honorable reputation.
Besides, no girl is ever "sullied" in a public
place against her own will.
We young people of Michigan, and of the
United States, would like to know why it is that
the Governor does not think us as cap-
able of living as decent a life as he did when he
was young. True, we don't all live on farms. The
city, however, is as safe as the farm. Dodge City
passed with the cowboy and Indian.

The WPA Situation

William Green, president of the American Fed-
eration of Labor, announces that his organiza-
tion is prepared to press its demand for the pre-
vailing wage in WPA by political reprisals upon
members of Congress at the next election. With
this statement the strike lately called among
skilled building craftsmen on relief work projects
becomes plainly an effort not alone at collective
bargaining but an endeavor by a large pressure
group to force the policy of the Government on
a subject which is already a matter of generosity
on its part.
In fact, there can scarcely be any collective
bargaining in the usual sense as applied to relief
employment. Even leaving aside the extremely
serious question whether there can be any right
to strike against the Government, it should be
clear that relief work is not on the footing of
ordinary employment. The Government does not
sell for a profit the products of the relief workers.
It is not in business to make money out of their
labor. Consequently there can be no economic
pressure but only political from a strike of these
workers, since unlike a commercial employer the
Government saves money instead of losing it by
every day's work that is refused over the issue
of the prevailing wage rule.
The effectiveness of work relief has been handi-
capped from the first by the intrusion of this en-
forced practice of paying the union scale of wages
-which would be quite appropriate in public
employment if workers were selected on a basis
of fitness and craftsmanship such as good unions
take pride to maintain but which becomes quite
another matter when the object is to spread relief
assistance as far as possible among the families
