America First We walked out of Blylhevillc's cily Imli last night with a comfortable feeling—a feeling of renewed confidence that our own United States of America is not.going to become embroiled in llic . current European conflicts if such men as Raymond J. Kelly, national commander of tlic American Legion, liavc tlieir way. At first it .sucinuil tluit our fut'liJitf should have lieen more of (lie opposite —a bclltKereiil, aggressive .sort of an iiltitiide. \Vc had been lisleniiiK to martial music and had watched uniformed men step briskly into the city auditorium' and to Die stage. All of this would 'ordinarily lie calculated, at impulse, to stir our Ijlood and bring the old war spirit to the fore. But on our part, at least, there was no such feeling of patriotism Hint would -send us oil" taking pot shots at the newest aliens. And we have a firm opinion thai almost everyone who heard Com_ mandcr Kelly speak fell that the weight 'of the American Legion, the men and boys who fought once lo "save the world for democracy", would be thrown fully against any movement to again send this nation into the midst of a European .catastrophe. Any action of any kind w7iich might lead lo entanglement in the conflicts across the ocean should be viewed in the-light of our own national welfare and if any doubt exists as lo the chances we might ho taking by such, action tlicn (hat doubt .should Ijc resolved in favor of our own country and our awn people,'Commander Kelly said in sub- st.iiice. It is- refreshing to know that thu roll of drums, stirring martial airs and uniformed men can provide a .setting in this country for an appeal (o reason. No sword rattling against a backdrop of regimented, awe-stricken, dictator-fearing masses is needed here. We believe Commander Kelly is .sincerely, even aggressively neutral. It is well that the powerful organization lie heads has such a man to direct its course during these difficult, days. "America's interests first"—is a watchword that can hardly bo overworked . No Farm Projils In, War When things first began getting messy in Europe late last .summer, some farmers sciuiiitcd hopefully toward their fields and began calculating acreage increases and ensuing profits. Those farmers who haven't learned OUT OUR WAY since last September that visions of quick profits are strictly pipe dreams are being reminded DOW, by Department of Agriculture officials] that the war is not likely !o open any great new markets for American produce. As a matter of fact, because of'credit difficulties and transportation Inwards, exports to Europe have already declined. At a recent meeting of the National Farm Institute, in DCS Moines, la., farmers were told, by AAA Administrator It. M. Evans, not to count on anything njiecliicultir happening to markets this year, And as for the postwar period—no soap. Not the way things look now. Europe may need American crops when the war is over, but there probably won't be enough folding money left on the entire continent to buy a bag of rice at wholesale prices. Mr. Evans pointed out that American farmers have already felt the effect of war by finding themselves with unexpected surpluses on hand. Tobacco, for example. England used to be it pretty good customer of southern tobacco growers; but, when the war broke out, this trade suddenly slopped. England had accumulated large reserves, and if she needs more tobacco, she will got it somewhere else. ' Under any circumstances,, the farmer is being protected, as far as it is possible, against ft short-lived boom and a subsequent long depression. Stability of prices, parity with labor's wages arc what the farmer most desires. Generally speaking, he is far less interested in sudden war profits than he is in a reasonably steady income/year after year. Assure him an equitable return for his labors and his investment and he will not be enticed by any promises of making a wad on other peoples' wars. Homespun Symphony Music Where you'd least expect it, a symphony orchestra has sprung up.. H grew right out of the soil,, among farmers and traveling .salesmen and housewives and factory worker's 'who thought they'd, never again get around (o picking up the oldoboe or tlie'clust- cakcd cello. The project was organized last fall in Greenfield, Mass., with 22 members from the surrounding community. There arc now <1G in the orchestra. Two concerts have been held, and hundreds of folks came to hear their neighbors play the classics. The musicians are people who like lo play from sheer enjoyment, and whose composite talent is appreciated by everyone in the neighborhood. In a small way, it j s M revival of a' movement that lost ground when the various forms of "canned" music invaded homes. If- is the kind of project that can spring up anywhere. Rj g ntj c . s nce( t have no monopoly on symphony music. Any comiminily (h;it i v;l iits it will find plenty of talent in all sorts of unsuspected places. The right propaganda for I-YMIICC Is lo show her sim H democracy which, while fighting for die liberty of other peoples ] )c ,- s e|f, practices u.c maximum of liberty possible in time of -war. —Former Premier Leon Blum of France SIDE GLANCES by QaJbrahh "Yon'rc nlso spcnkinfi lo :i notary public, ;ind if you're looking for aohic good veal estate buys, I'm the man lo sec."

"Good night, Paul." * * * ^ LANDLADY, hearing voices in •he hall, came from a rear door. She was an acid-visaged person with hard eyes and a tight mouth.
