Ecuador And Peru
Cease Firing . .
THE NEWS that Peru had agreed to
end her fight with Ecuador was re-
ceived with acclaim Friday in every capital in
this hemisphere-and with good reason. Al-
though both countries have been squabbling over
their border line for more thna 100 years, the
recent fighting was the first armed clash since
this part of the world has begun to worry about
Of course we also remember that Peru agreed
to a truce once before but, from all indications
thus far, this one will be permanent. But the
Uiftfortunate thing is that there will still be hard
feelings and rival claims over their disputed
border for some time to come, just as there are
hard feelings between Bolivia and Paraguay
over their border line.
In times like these it seems a shame that two
countries in this hemisphere should go to war
over a little piece of land when unity is so im-
portant to fight off fascism and there is so
much undeveloped territory in all of South
The action taken by Argentina in staving off
an. attempted Nazi putsch the other day is also
a good sign. Because of troublesome trade rela-,
tions between the United States and Argentina
that nation has been a source of worry to Wash-
ington observers for several years, but recent
events give pleasant indication that Argentina
too is "dedicated to the policy of the Good

The Weather! .. .
P ROBABLY the only subject on which
all America is united is the weather
-we're all against it. And we have a perfect
right to be against it because it's too hot. So
today we'll write an editorial on the weather
hoping that it doesn't arouse the ire of any of
our readers because it's even too hot for that.
On every subject, with the exception of the
weather, there is disagreement. The Wheeler-
Lindbergh clan is fighting for isolation and the
Knox-Stimson group is fighting for interven-
tion. The Communists are shouting for aid to
Russia and Father Coughlin objects. Some
people want to go to war with Japan now and
others cry for peace. Iffy the Dopester has
come out for cotton stockings and less leg art
but we say no-we're a little younger than Iffy.
BUT there's even more disagreement outside
of this country. Germany is trying to save
the world from communism, Russia is trying to
save herself, China ahd Japan both seem wor-
ried about the "yellow peril" and even Ecuador
and Peru are fighting. Well, anyway they were
The weather situation, however, is different;
we're all agreed that it's no good. This, how-
ever, raises another serious point, what are we
going to do about it?
SWIMMING, showers, sitting still, sleeping, etc.
are all merely temporary ways to defeat the
heat and drinking iced tea and or coffee as ad-
vertised by various concerns is not much better.
Of course, we could all travel around in our
birthday suits but Dean Bursley and Dean Lloyd
wouldn't like that.
- Frankly we think that this weather is being

WELL, FOLKS, all I've got to say
is I'm glad Terence recognizes
true genius when he sees it, and now
I guess I'll get out my typewriter and
try to peck out a short story or two.
What if Allan Seager does think my
stories stink? Terence printed my
column, didn't he? And what's Allan
Seager got that Terence hasn't got
outside of an education?
Been trying to do a book review all
day, but somehow, I couldn't get into
an intellectual mood and kept put-
ting in little quips which I'm sure no
one would have appreciated, least of
all the author. It's sort of quiet
round here now. Except for the
teletype, and after you've been work-
ing here' awhile, you get so used to
it you don't even notice it. Terence
is helping to put out a paper after
an attack of indigestion which I
won't say wasn't caused by too much
colored soda water. If it had been
earlier in the week, he could have
blamed it on the hot dogs and cracker
jack and cotton candy he ate at the
carnival. Speaking of cotton candy,
I hadn't had any since I was a kid
and it wasa disappointment some-
how. It's not as pretty as it looks
and it sticks to your nose. The ferris
wheel came right up: to expectations,
though. Especially that first swing
up and around. Wooooo!
ANOTHER THING about carnivals,
they don't have fun houses the
way they used to, with the wind
blowing up the girls' skirts. Maybe
they figure skirts are short enough
anyway these days. Terence and one
of his colleagues just reminded me of
this lack down in the print shop,
chasing me around with the air
blower that cleans the linotype ma-
chine. Never a dull moment. That's
why I'm up here, after beating a
hasty retreat from the original rover
It's almost time to go to press now.
And -there's something exciting about
seeing the first paper come popping
out of the machine. We always wait
for it, and then go careening madly
home on Jezebel, the much-publicized
bike. The other day we actually had
a car and started out to drive any
old where, ending up over on Lake
Erie. It was very discouraging,
though, the way we couldn't even get
near the lake. Unless we drove down
a private road or paid twenty-five
cents to get into a public bathing
beach, when we both have ear trou-
ble, and all we wanted to do was go
ANYONE interested in the Phylum
Arthropoda would certainly be
kept busy up here. Bright lights and
no screens attract all shapes and
varieties of insects. Like all good
freshmen we studied about them in
Zoology I, but, so help me, Dr. Lag-
ler, I can't remember how many legs
a spider has. But I got plenty out of
Zoology I anyway. Just ask Terence.
Even the teletype has gone dead
now, andkall I can hear is the click
of these keys as I write. Just before
the machine went off, it kept ringing
its bell for about two minutes
straight, just to let us know that it
was all through for the night. Ear-
lier in the evening, it had a stutter-
ing spell, starting to send over the
same story eight different times be-
fore it really got underway. Its stut-
ters were accompanied-no, not by
the professor on the piano, but by
great guffaws from the managing
editor, who is very handy with the
blow pipe and does a neat act of
log-rolling on the paper rolls. And
he bane no Swede.

hour approaches and here come
the rover boys, so here goes Moitle.

y DREW PEARSON and ROBERT S. ALLEN:
WASHINGTON-A vitally important contro-
versy has developed between the War and Navy
departments on the one hand and OPM and
OPACS on the other, over the question of whe-
ther defense billions should be spent both fast
and wisely, or just fast.
THE OPINION of certain officials in the office
of Leon Henderson (OPACS), defense money
is being poured out in a way that will make a
"rotten scandal" when exposed, though-the ex-
pose may not come for years.
But in the opinion of Army and Navy officials,'
OPACS is obstructing defense contracts and
playing a double game with contractors.
In the fight involves a sensational issue, but
one which has no popular appeal because it is
tangled with provisions of contract law which
the average man cannot grasp, but it is the
average man's money that's being spent by the
' O DATE, defense contracts already let total
27 billion dollars, and the charge is that much
of this money is being wasted because of lax
methods in the War and Navy departments.
Most shocking is the complete lack of detailed
cost information. War and Navy departments
let contracts with big corporations without ask-
ing for cost estimates. For example:
War Department asks a munitions manufac-
turer to make shells for a 75 mm. gun. The
company quotes a price, and the War Depart-
ment lets the contract without asking what cost
estimates went into the company's price.
CHANCES ARE that the company, knowing
AND YET the expansion was already paid for
by the Government when it agreed to pay
the high price for the shells.
. This is the sort of thing OPACS is trying to
prevent. But in doing so, they have run up
against time-honored procedure in the War and
Navy department. Those departments' procure-
ment officers have been dealing for a lifetime
with manufacturers in a friendly fashion, and
they see no reason why the friendly dealings
should be interrupted.
WHAT RILES the War and Navy departments
is the interference of a New Deal agency in
their affairs. They have found that the "neces-
sity certificates" they issue to a contractor when
he is constructing "emergency facilities" are no
longer an open sesame to tax exemption. The
contractor must also have a "Certificate of Gov-
ernment protection," and he can't get this cer-
tificate without approval of Leon Henderson's
This is where the battle line is drawn, but it
is not drawn sharply enough to prevent the
squandering of millions. Some of the big corpor-
ations are still bleeding the Government.
Number Rackets And Diplomacy
Of all the rooms in the sedate State Depart-
ment, the most sedate is the diplomatic recep-
tion room. It is to this room, decorated with
busts of Presidents and portraits of Secretaries
of State, that the Chief of Protocol brings a new
Ambassador for presentation to Secretary Hull.
IT IS in this room that the British Ambassador
waits before going in to see Under Secretary
Welles. It is here that the Japanese Ambassador
