City of Flint bid fair to affect world commerce far more than all the vessels which bombs and torpedoes have sent to the bottom since November 1. Carrying contraband to Britain, the Flint was seized by Germany in taken first to Norway and then to Murmansk, Russia, where her American crew was reported safe. But the Soviet indicated Germany would get the ship, thereby relieving Joseph Stalin of bickering with the U. S. Most observers agreed the Reich was justified in seizing n 17. 100-od- d taking 18 days to clear a boat Result: A "gentleman's agreement" to speed inspection. Obviously the Flint incident put Russia on a spot. By releasing her to the American crew, Russia would snub an erstwhile ally, Germany. As it was, the Soviet incurred U. S. skepticism. If Russia again offers haven to a neutral vessel seized by Germany, the Kremlin might well be asked to tell how she stands in 1939's war. There was a strong hint of her position in another Flint aftermath. At Moscow, British Ambassador Sir William Seeds was given a note rejecting Soviet recognition of Britain's war contraband list because it violates international law and impairs neutral rights. Incredulous at such effrontery, a London spokesman blurted: "Fantastic!" Recruits are given forms to fill out. If over 21, parents' consent is not needed. Applicants between 18 and 21 must have their parents' consent. From all, the army demands character references. Physical examinations come next, and after enlistment medical officers are constantly looking after the soldier's health.

This is one way of inculcating discipline, which army officers insist never hurt anyone. two-third- COMING UP; s pinkish Fifty-seven- th strnJet career of the piano and mu- sical composi. tioru Eilshemius has composed a small library of songs, operas and etudes and used to give piano concerts in his youth. He painted feverishly for 46 years, quitting to 1922 when none would buy his pictures and no galleries hang them. But in his varied abilities, he far outshone Blakelock. Here are a few of his achievements: When he was a student at Cornell university, he discovered a new species of ichneumon fly. Later he announced a new law governing the "ramification of trees." He wrote somewhat more than 50 volumes of plays, novels, novelettes, essays and verse. The verse. in tone, was written in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish. He published them himself and, like his pictures, they gathered only cobwebs and dust He invented a new kind of "magic" indelible ink and several studio devices for artists. He explored various diseases and offered methods of therapy. , He was born in Laurel Hill, N. J., near Newark, the son of wealthy He attended glove manufacturer.

By-ron- ic ... Herald-Tribun- ported to have sold $150,000 worth of his paintings. All his canvases are in demand at high prices. But Mr. Eilshemius, an irascible little man with a ragged beard and a testy way of speaking, is bedridden in his gloomy, gaslit old house in East street, and he asks, "What's the good of the whole damn thing?" He's 75 years old. He warned the world many times that it was going down the skids, and now he thinks it's on the last stretch of the greased chute, and nothing else matters not even money and fame. The late Ralph Blakelock lost his mind after years of failure to stir critical or popular interest in his work. He was hailed as a great painter, and his pictures were bought by great galleries when he no longer knew or cared about money or recognition. There is an interesting parallel between his career and that of Mr. Eilshemius, although the latter is still bright and smart as a chipmunk. But he won't even look oat of his narrow bedroom window. He wants no outlook on a world turning itself into a madhouse. Pictures on the floor, covered with dust and cobwebs, may be worth a fortune, pictures of moods, dreams and memories, but that doesn't interest him. He had renounced the "pomps and vanities of this wicked world" long before it beat a path to his door. The parallel between Blakelock and Eilshemius is also marked by the amazing diversity of their talents. Blakelock, the son of a physician, was trained in medicine, gifted ...
