International Friendship
Sinclair Lewis, novelist, believes that America and
x and must draw closer and closer together in the
dous years ahead o fus. But he believes that in order
to do it they will have to throw overboard "all this hands
across the sea nonsense.”
Friendship and co-operation between nations, he be
lieves, are hindered rather than helped by excess senti
mentalism. The propaganda which the international rela
tions societies hand out Mr. Lewis abruptly calls “slop”;
in its place he wants to see a little healthy realism.
Such realism, he says, would recognize the fact that
Americans do not like any number of things about Eng
lishmen, and that Englishmen do not like an equal num
ber of things about Americans. Those things being admit
ted, there would be room for the two nations to get to
gether on a firm basis.
In these remarks the novelist seems to have touched
on the one great obstacle in the way of international
friendship. It is failure to understand the nature of this
obstacle, or even to recognize its existence, that brings
a sour note into so many international adventures.
When two nations become allied in any great cause—
and generally that means an alliance in war—they start
o^t with a great chorus of cheers, many fine speeches and
a June glow of friendliness.
Then presently they discover that thing." aren't going
to he quite a.< faa rmonious as they had expected. Each side
finds that the of^er has its little peculiarities—and. for
that matter, its big qjies, too. The sentimentality gives
way to disillusionment*Generally an Ictive dislike follows.
There are records oX American mobs having stoned
French troops during our war for independence. Any
veteran of the A. E. F. can testify that by the time the
World War ended the A.E. F. and the French were mut
tering out of the corners of their mouths at one another.
Sailors from the American and British fleets fought one
another with vengeful enthusiasm whenever the occasion
That is the way such things usually vvtuk out. Mr.
Lewis idea is to take the unpleasantness in advance and
not to expect too much. It would open the way for much
sounder friendships.
Church People and Politics
Perhaps the most interesting commentary on the
Pennsylvania legislature’s refusal to pass a bill legalizing
Sunday afternoon outdoor sports was a remark made dur
ing the preliminary debates by State Senator Leon Prince,
who warned his colleagues “not to arouse the church peo
“The church people on the whole are indifferent to
disinclined to concerted political action,” the Senator as
serted. “But there are enough of them to revolutionize the
political corruption, neglectful of their political duties and
state if they want to do it. Pass this bill and they will do
Whether passage of the act would have had that ef
fect may he open to question. Meanwhile, however, this
little comment is a thing which church leaders might well
afford to ponder over.
Scientists say that smiling babies are no more intell

JEFF was explaining, "Miss Cala
han works in our office, too."
Janet said, “1 Bee,” and then
when there was a pause added
something about the weather be
ing so pleasant.
"It's a swell day all right.” Do
lores Calahan put in. "lire, l hate
to think of spending all the rest ot
the afternoon in that stuffy old of
fnw! It’s a swell day hut we don’t
get to enjoy it. Just this little, tiny
lunch hour—”
“Oh. if you’re going to lunch I
mustn't keep you!” Janet said
Jeff said. "Why—yes. It’s our
lunch hour. Why don't you come
along. Janet? We'd be awfully glad
to have you ”
“Thanks, tint I couldn’t. I've
some errands to do and then I'm
to meet Mrs. Curus." Sac told Miss
Calahan it was nice to have met
her. said good by to Jeff and hur
ried away.
Jeff and Dolores walked in si
lence for sever.* moments. Pres
ently the girl asked, “Is Miss Hill
a friend of yours?”
“Why, yea." Jeff answered •'She
used to live at the same place
where I live.”
Dolores said “Oh!* and her
bright red lip - set themselves In a
firm line. Jeff didn’t notice this. In
another moment they had reached
the store where photographic sup
plies were 6old.
An obliging clerk showed them
the cameras. Jeff selected one that
was compact and yet large enough.
He pointed out that it was simple
to operate and, for the price, a
good value.
Dolores said that she would take
it. “Mr. Grant.” she said as the
clerk moved away to wrap the pack
age, “Do w.u suppose maybe you
could come out to ray house some
time and tell Johnny all those
things about how the camera
works? I’ll try to hut I don’t know
if 1 can remember everything
Johnny's awfully smart and I’m
sure he'll catch on right away—"
• • •
IEFP smiled. “There’ll be a book
of instructions with the camera,”
he said. "They aiwaya send them.
But If Johnny has aay trouble I
might be able to help him."
“Oh. thank you! Say, that’s cer
tainly grand of you!” The girl
raised eyes filled with gratitude.
The clerk brought the package
just then. Dolores took it and
started for the door. "We’ll hare
to grab a couple of sandwiches at
the corner,” she said. “I don’t
dare to be late again this week. I
was late yesterday and ol’ Slocum
gave me the dickens!”
Nothing had been said about a
luncheon engagement but Jeff
found himself seated beside Dolores
on one of the high stools before
the soda fountain at the corner
drug store. The girl ordered a ham
salad sandwich and double choco
late sundae with nuts. She chat
tered in amusing fashion while she
ate and Jeff grinned more than
once at her sly comments on office
When they had finished she
seemed quite willing for him to pay
the check and hurried ahead so
that she would not again incur
Miss Slocum's wrath.
That night Dolores recounted all
that had happened and been said
during the lunch hour to her
friend, Agnes Mallory.
"Gee!” Agnes said admiringly,
"you certainly are a slick one! I
don't see liow you think of all
those things!”
Dolores shifted a sheer chiffon
stocking deftly so that the seam
came exactly in the back. Then
she gave a little laugh. "I think
of lots of things.” she said. "Walt
till you see him! Say, is he
classy! ”
• • •
A T about the same time Jeff Grant
■ ^ was telephoning to Janet Hill.
"It's a nice evening,” he said. "I
wondered if you'd like to drive over
and see how the Sllvani family is
getting along?”
Janet hadn’t visited the Silv&nls
since she'd moved from the room
ing house. She had meant to but
tho first week had rushed past so
quickly and there had been so
many things to do in the little time
she had to herself that her reso
lutions had failed completely.
"Why, yes, I would,” she said.
Mrs. Curtis was away and she was
free for the evening.
"All right. It’ll take me about
20 minutes to drive out there, I
guess. Can you be ready by that
Janet said tnat i»ie couifl oe
ready. It was exactly 25 minutes
later that the doorbell rang. Janet
answered and found Jeff waiting.
She said. “Good evening.” and
there was something so stiff and
formal about the way she said it
that the young man eyed her
What was the matter? He wasn't
sure even when they were settled
in the roadster and he had the en
gine started again. Something was
wrong, though.
He asked about what she had
been doing and her answers came
in the same cool, formal tones. He
said that her room at Mrs. Sny
der's was still vacant, that the
landlady had been having a go<<d
deal of trouble with her ncuriti*
and that Hattie, the matd, had been
replaced by another girl whe
seemed to have great difficulty Ic
remembering to bring around deal
He didn't mention meeting Janet
at noon. As a matter of fact. Jefl
had forgotten about it but to Janei
; the omission was significant.
1 She stole a quick glance at him
To think that Jeff could care foi
such a cheap, obvious little creatun
• aa that girl! So she was the typ<
he admired, the girl for whom the
selection of a gift was bo import
Janet assured herself that it was
not jealousy she felt. Of course it
was nothing like that. She
wouldn’t for the world have him
think that she cared or was even
And so the evening was some
what of a failure. Mrs. Silvan! and
the two children were well and
happy and delighted to see their
guests. Jeff and Janet stayed for
three-quarters of an hour while
Rosie talked about the squirrel she
had seen in the park and Tommy
showed Jeff the new puzzle he was
working on. Mrs. Silvani had
been sewing and she sat by the
lamp, making buttonholes while
she talked. It was a pleasant
enough visit but after Janet Cbd
Jeff had said good by and gone
bark to ;he car the coolness they
had felt before persisted.
• • •
TN a few more nights the moon
would be a complete golden
sphere. It shown down brightly
and a warm breeze was blowing.
There was time enough for a drive
through one of the parks or ont on
the hill road. Jeff looked at Janet
and then his face set determinedly.
All right If she didn’t want to
talk to him she didn't have tot
Maybe it was because she was liv
ing out on the west side now, be*
cause she rode around in a limou
