Bo tTron Takahlra, for whose mur der Jack Carlson langulahed In Jail, started for Japan, troubling himself little about thinking, but greatly concerned over the various coming pleasures he Intended to enjoy. Neither was he greatly Interested In the fight which his father waa winning: but even he might have been startled had he known to what lengths that fight had been carried. The big gun had bean Intellectual dishonesty. Japanese apologists had written books concerning "The real Japanese question." Ignoring the real question, which Is: "Why do the Japs persist In coming to Amer |ca snd taking up land, when they know that the people whom they de sire to call 'fellow cltlrens' do not want them?"

Indeed tha house was so crooked that the front steps went up to the liack door and the cellar windows were on the roof. "Well of all things!" declared both children together. "This Is the craziest thing yet." But they were wrong. Thera which claimed that anyone who pro tested against the Japanese Invasion was "lacking In Ideals," "full of ba.teness and preurlenny," "self-seek ing agitators." and what not.
