So Warsaw has fallen? Warsaw
stands and will stand as a symbol of
unconquerable courage. Walls have
been razed by cannon, houses have
been bombed by planes, men have
been mastered by machines, even that

again out of the roar of guns to hurl j
a city’s defiance has been supressed. ,
All that is material in Warsaw lies I

the chief scapegoat in recent years;
for failure of U. S. business to bios- i

are present in the stock market asj
usual, but eagerness for profit has
caused investors to pour millions of
dollars into it, bidding up the total
value of shares listed on the N. Y.
exchange a billion dollars in three
weeks. The rise was brought about
with cash on the line, not borrowed
money, bank figures show. This is
cash that’s long been in “hiding.”

one-third of the company’s total 1938

traffic had made them skittish about
spending money, now plan to spend
upwards of $100,000,000 for repairs
to old rolling stock and for rails, now

Pale Horse, Pale Rider by Kather-
ine Anne Porter is a collection of
three extraordinary short novels.
“Noon Wine”, “Old Mortality” and
the title story. Ralph Thompson in
the New York Times says “Miss Por-
ter has contrived to achieve an emo-
tional effect that few, if any of her
contemporaries would have been able
to match. Her reputation was not
gained by chance or sleight of hand,
and “Pale Horse, Pale Rider” con-
firms it.” Miss Porter was born in
Texas in 1894. She was awarded a
Guggenheim Fellowship in 1931 and
in 1937 was awarded a $2500 fellow-
ship given by the Book of the Month

Son—“Sure, mom, but I’d hate to
trust her with the old man.”

“The Problem of the Green Cap-

be another of his very fine mystery
stories. One of the problems seems
to be the inability of people to des-
