G. OIJISENBERRY United Press Staff Correspondent LONDON, Dec. 21. (UP) — [Fearful of war, all Europe to >da|r is wondering. "What the | ne,\t war will be like?" I €apt. B. H. Liddell Hart , one of»ihe world's foremost military J hiSt(.» ians and strategists, says ncfariy everyone has the wrong idea about it. The next war, he believes, will be tame com pared with the last. rmies will be paralyzed al-1 mist before they have begun to mobilize. If they did succeed1 in meeting, they would have to entrench quickly as the alterna-1 tive to suicide. Attack by land 1 forces will be so difficult that I it "will become almost impossible. I Warring- nations will either be made helpless at the outset, or stalemated so promptly that it will be useless to pursue the war. j LAST WAR TAUGHT LITTLE Europe's general staffs, ac cording to Capt. Liddell Hart, have learned comparatively little from the last yar. They still be lieve in the effectiveness of mass movements and think the larger) their armies are, the more pow erful will they be. This "mere; tonnage of man jpower," in the! j British starategistrs opinion, will 1 avail European nations little in! the next war. "The fallacy of the theory, J was exposed a generation ago J : by the mechanical progress which made one man, sitting behind a I machine-gun, the superior of a 'hundred, or even a thousand, who 1 were advancing against him on foot with rifle and bayonet" he says. I "Machine-guns of every kind have multiplied everywhere since the last war, increasing the al ready overwhelming advantage of defensive forces 011 land. In contrast, artillery has decreased in proportion. That perhaps matters little, because at its ut most the larger gun was an in efficient and uneconomic ma chine-gun destrover. GAS TO PARALYZE FOE "Advancing armies will be foredoomed to failure. Gas, par ticularly mustard-gas, will in crease the helplessness of large armies. Their very size will en danger them more than the foe. 1 he larger they arc, the easiei they will be to paralyze by air attack on their assembly posi tions and routes. ' "Thus it is doubtful whether the armies would ever come to the point of sighting each other; whether they would come within reach of the battlefield." More likely, believes Liddell Hart, air forces wiil strike in the first hour of the next war before moblization has begun. The power to make war will be crippled at its source. The air attacks will not be directed at the civilian population, he says, but at "basic" targets—muni tions factories, power centers, ports and airdromes. LARGEST AIR FORCE I "The nation with the largest 'air force will have an evident ad (vantage," he adds. "Yet the i value of mere quantity is apt to • be over-estimated in the air as I on land. Technical efficiency 1 will count for more than num bers. ( The intricate mobilization ma I chinery of a modern "horde world, explains Liddell Hart, to ; throw out of gear. The centra j ligation of water, light, heat and j power supplies all more disloca tion easier and paralysis more certain. DR. MORSE HEAD OF RUTHERFORD CLUB • RUTIIERFORDTON, Dec. 21. Dr. L. B.

NOW CO OX WITH THE STORY CHAPTER XXXVII pilO.M his chair in the shadows Rannister sat looking at Juliet ' ?rance. Sho was sitting on a low , ootstool. drawn up near his ai:.,t*s 'hair. The light from the fir?place I fell on her hair and it gleamed *s brightly as the flames. Her head was turned so that he could w:e her face in profile and the I lovely line of her throat. She was listening to what the older woman was saying. What sort of girl was she. Ran- j nister asked himself. Here in the firelight she might be any pretty girl reared in surroundings of j moderate luxury. An hour before, | out in the snow storm, she had , seemed little more than a child. He thought of the first time he had ! •seen her—a white-faced young j woman with a revolver in her hand- ! bag. He remembered her behind j prison bars, defiant and hostile. And all of these were Juliet France. Rut that was impossible! One of them must be the real Juliet and the others play-acting. Which was the real girl? McNeal thought she was work ing for Mug Logan and his gang sters. Rannister remembered what McNeal had said, "Just because she'B got a pretty face don't let that fool you. Did you ever see a gunman's doll who wasn't pretty? The swellest dressed and best look ing and most ladylike acting dame I ever saw was with Rig Roy Ml lano—" Rut perhaps McNeal's judgment about girls who were "swe'l look ing and lady-like acting" wasn't to be relied upon. Rannister straightened. He asked, "Has any body seen the evening paper?" "It's on the table," Kate Hewlett told him, "or maybe 1 left it in the dining room. I remember—" The ringing of the telephone cut off her .words. Rannister who was on his feet said, "I'll answer it." Ho went into the hall and picked up the instrument. "Hello," he said, "David Rannister speaking." A moment later the women in the living room heard his sharp ex clamation. He went on speaking but they could not hear his words clearly. Almost immediately ho reap peared in the doorway, wearing his hat and coat. He said, "Don't wait dinner for me, Aunt Kate. l'*e got to go down town." ins aunt was on tier teet. j "David!" she exclaimed. "Wiiat is > t? What's happened?" "Somebody hurt out at the Shelby \rras." he told her. "I've got to ;o out there. Don't get excited. | !t's nothing to worry about—" And then he was gone. He had j leglected to call a cab but. fort*- | lately, was able to hail one half ivay down the block. "Shelby Anns." he told the driver. "I'm n a hurry!" * # * "THE snow had made the street treacherous but the taxi-driver rook Bannister at his* word. In 10 minutes, after skidding perilously an two corners, :hey halted before Jie door of the hotel. Bannister thrust a bill in the driver's hand and ran up the step? of the hotel. In the lobby he en [•ountered Gainey and I'leming. "We can't go up yet." they told , liim. "McNeal's there now and Doc Burr is." "Then it's true?" Bannister de manded. "Of course it's true." The coroner's report stated that Melvina Hollister. aged 53. spinster, had come to her djath by means of violence some tin e between the hours of three and five o'clock that afte-noon. Death had been caused by strangulation. But it was some time before Ban nister and Gainey aud the other reporters saw that report. They waited in the hotel lobby until the clerk at the desk asked them to step into a smaller, adjoining room. It was almost an hour before Mc Neal came down stairs. They gathered around him, ask ing questions. "Yes, she was strangled," he told them. "We found what it was done with—a man's silk scarf, black and white. It was dropped on the floor beside her. She was sitting in a chair facing the win dow—" "Who fcund her?" Gaiuey asked. "Her brother." "What time was that?" "Just before the call reachcd headquarters. A little after live o'clock. The brother clr.ims he went out for a walk about three o'clock. When he k>(t, his sister was writing a letter. The desk was open where she might have been using it but there wasn't any letter in sight. Ilollister claims he carne back a little after five o'clock and went upstairs. He saw lii3 sister lying back in her chair and thought at first she was sick. Then he realized what had hap pened and ran down to get the clerk. That's his stdry. anyhow—" • • * DID anyone in the building hear anything?" "The woman who lives across the hall." McNeal told them, "said she thought she heard someone talking to Miss Hollister about four o'clock. She didn't understand anything that was said or recog nize the other voice. Couldn't say whether it was a man's or a wom an's. Aside from that, nobody heard anything." "Is there any way to get into the apartment except the regular en trance?" BanniBter asked. "There's a service door but it was bolted." "Anything missing from the apartment?" McNeal shook his head. "I don't think so," he said. "We had a i hard time getting anvthini: out of MM* ?Qt n^fslfaffclf Aij money iu the place woWd_vbe 1fl iiii sister''- j»ursc.

Ki\y how no.ic of the stuff }iu<J been touched, apparently." "Any signs of a struggle?" tlair.cy wanted to kno"*. Again McNeal shook his head "The room—she was in the living room —looked ]ust as it did the other night when I «aa there. Nothing out or place. Whoevyr did it either came in witlipijt, har si-e ing him or else was someone she had no reason to suspect. He must have stepped up behind hor.— "Are you su/e she was killed In the chair where ycr found Hannister ask*d. "No. I'm r.ot sure Of it' but it looks reasonable. She was sitting facing the window pud a,vy::y from the. door. Anyone who had a fcey could have come in and slipped.up behind her." 'Tut who else had a key?". "No ona but her brother, so Tar as I've been able to iind out." » • • -t % • 1> ANNISTKK though*. ot Mat * thew Ilollister with liia mild, spec lac led blue eyes. "How about that scarf you mentioned?" Fleming asked. "Think you'll be able to'trace-.it?" "We're going to try." »• "Where is it?" Gainey asked. "Can we see it?" "Yes. It's upstairs." "How about going up there now?" "You cas go." McNeal told them, "but you won't find any thing more than I've told you." He hesitated. "If you'll wait a minute." he said, "I'll go with you. I want to see the manager first." McNeal's "minute" lengthened into live and still he did not re appear. _, "I'll bet the manager's plenty excited," Fleming volunteered. "Two murders iu two weeks in this place!" "He probably isn't any too pleased about it." U^iney agreed. "I heard yesterday tbm live fam ilies have moved out of hgre late ly. There'll be more leaving now." "And five tenants Iu these times mean money." "Five tenants mean money in any times," Gainey corrected him. They saw McNeal then, comlns toward them, and t."3 reporter* got to their feet. They rode to tbt second tioor in the elevator ani followed the detective captain down a corridor. An officer tn uniform stood before a dooi ahead. He stepped aside for lliem to enter the apartment. The living room. . a6 McNea! nad said, looked exactly as it had the night he and Bannister bad paid the Hollisters a visit. Ban nister stood just inside the room, glancing around him. when -an other door opened Matthew Hollister 3tood on, the threshold. He seemed to recog nize McNeal as the., person it charge for he nurried forward. His voice rose hysterically. "A'vc got to have protection!" he cried. "I won't stay here. .1 tell ..you.
