CarlyJe. Every Day.... By Harvc-y Jacobs I guess I wasn't more than twelve or thirteen when this rather remote relative came to visit my grandfather. I don't even remember his name, but I do know that he was from another State and that his son, or son-in-law, I can't recall which, was an officer fairly high in army circles. That sounds like a rather indefinite jumble to be recalling, I must admit. But I should hasten to add that my childish memory did record a picture from that man's visit. One summer afternoon we were sitting on the front porch, this gentleman, my grandfather and I. and I had been listening intently to their discussion of the World war; which, of course, was not long ended. It was all very interesting to me, and their comments merely accentuated my the'world-saved-for-righteousness point of view, gleaned so "thoroughly" from grade school American history. The discussion had temporarily lulled, out suddenly our visitor leaned toward my grandfather and said, "John fays the Japs are next." Well, John is the name I have given to the man's son or son-in-law who was high in official army circles. Those six words from this near-stranger, delivered so authoritatively, have always remained, with me. Every time I read or hear , of Japanese-American relations I can see that man as he spoke, "John says the Japs are next." I remember, too, that I pondered his prophecy a long time then. How, I thought, could one man, or even two ar three, predict with whom a nation was next to fight? Was there something mysterious and fateful and inescapable about this whole business? Did someone just point at a spot on the map, like a barber pointing at a customer, and say "Next"? Rex Sexson, Auctioneer. PUBLIC SALE. I will offer for sale at public auction at my old home place in Blue River township, 7 miles southeast of Greenfield on the Mor-ristown-Greenfield pike, ,2 mile south of Shiloh, 3 miles northwest of Morristown, beginning at 10:30 a. m. on WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 17, 1940 The following property, to-wit: 2 HEAD OF HORSES 2 One gray horse, smooth-mouth, blind; one bay horse, smooth mouth.

Terms Cash Lunch will be served by 81115 Hov; To Relieve Bronchitis I Bronchitis, acute or chronic, is an : inflammatory condition of the mucous membranes lining the bronchial tubes. Creomulsion goes right to the seat of the trouble to loosen germ laden phlegm, I increase secretion and aid nature to soothe and heal raw, tender, inflamed bronchial mucous membranes. Tell your druggist to sell you a bottle of . Creomulsion with the understanding i that you are to like the way it quickly allays the cough or you are to have your money back. j CREOMULSION ; For Coughs, Chest Colds, Bronchitis And so my childish queries went and so they have gone; always unanswered. Today more than ever. I am told that unless American "interests" are more reverently respected in China, the "United States" will take retaliatory measures. I am also told that Japan might seize the Philippine islnds. The obvious implication being-sin ce Japan can not conquer China she might also conquer the United States! i One authoritative writer describes our relations with Japan as "tightening." Apparently our visitor predicted correctly: "John says the Japs are next." But I still don't know why. The only "interest," I have in China (outside of a universal love for humanity in general, especially strickent humanity) is the fact that a friend has gone there to aid in clearing the debris and ad-miniitring to the sick and wounded. Many people have similar interests in China. But these are not the kind of interests the officials ledge protests and go to war about. The Japanes have no objections to doctors and nurses and teachers if they assume their own risks. These are not the kind of people who demand "American rights." No, our relative's prediction will not come to pass because a missionary or a doctor or a nurse gets shot; i twill be because of definite commercial interests. Because individuals not governments lose money and power is the prime cause of conflict. There is no such personal entity as Japan or the United States; neither can have tangible "interests" or "rights." Cnly individuals and pressure groups exist. I have learned all this since our relative spoke so prophetically. But his "John says the Japs are next" is as unexplainable as it was when I first heard it. I can only mutter a childish "Whv?" and 5 Farm Loans, 5 to 26 years. See BANK. adv THE CITIZENS Mr. and Mrs. Martin Greenweli and family of Frankfort spent the day with relatives in Greenfield.

In pigeon language it is a bird, a "carrier pigeon," which when released in any place will return to its home cot. But in the vernacular of basketball it is a "bird," represented as being an official, who gives the breaks to the home team. It is commonly said that, everything being equal, the "home" team "has an advantage on its own court over the visiting quintette. This edge is variously estimated by dif ferent individuals at from 3 to 10 j point, though for the life of us, in these days when most courts are regulation or near regulation in size, dimension, height of baskets, lighting, out-of-bounds, height of roof, etc., we see little reason why this alleged edge should be so positive or great, that is, so far as physical equipment is concerned. Of course, the phychology of a friendly or hostile crowd has its effect and then, again, there are the two officials and the old proposition and accusation of the "homer." The home team hands out the contracts and pays the officials. Satisfactory work, this season may! lead to added employment next j season. The home fan body may outnumber and make noise, on a basis of five or ten to one. Does this have a conscious or unconscious effect on the officiating? Frankly, we don't know. To attack the integrity or wisdom of officiating is a little like jumping on the Supreme Court. Prove the case and the whole business is ruined. There is always a lot of loose talk, in a hot season, or close tournament, about referees being blind, incompetent, bums or just plain unfair, but it's largely talk and we venture that seriously most fans think that the great majority of officials are not only rather competent but also trying to be fair. Just the same Notre Dame beating Syracuse, at South Bend, is charged with nine personals to AIR NOTES AND ANECDOTES By Bill Kiley) You'll be seeing a young Hoosiei actor in the moviss soon. He is Lee Bonnell. of South Bend, who won the name of Terry Belmont on the "Gateway to Hollywood" series just concluded over CBS. Lee signed a motion-picture contract after he was chosen by a group of distinguished judges as the most talented male performer presented by Producer Jesse L. Lasky on the thirteen-week program. Lee was born near Royal Center, Ind., in 1916, and later moved to South Bend with his parents. He was president of his high school class and the dramatic club, played football, was on the swimming team, and became an Eagle Scout. New Fevre, WFBM announcer, appeared in the finals with Lee. Incidentally, a consolation prize went to Miss Jemison McBride after she failed to survive the recent semi-finals of the "Gateway to Hollywood" program. The prize was a five-dollar bill, and was sent to her by a listener in Pittsburgh, Pa., who wrote: "Although I never saw you, I enjoyed your performance so much that I want to give you a little Christmas present in 1 appreciation." The program has been replaced by the popular Gene Autry, cowboy singer of the films. jHe's heard every Sunday at 5:30 P. m. Ann Todd, 7-year-oldj Hollywood actress who appears in the NBC show "Those We Love," learned recently that she is a fourth cousin of Mary Lincoln Todd, wife ,of the Civil War President. Ann 'has appeared as a feature player in I ten motion pictures during the last year, and is heard over the air Sun days at 7:30 p. m.

Lanny sang the song, as requested. Then, about a week later, he sang it again, this time in honor of the I reunion of the mother and son. His programs have proved to be so popular that soon Lanny will begin a schedule of five broadcasts per week. They will be heard over WFBM, starting January 22d, from 1 to 1:15 p. m. Static: "God Bless America," sounded by an automobile horn, will identify Kate Smith's car in traffic jams from now on. The CBS star received the gift from a horn manufacturing company. The program featuring Charlie McCarthy and Edgar Bergen has been cut in two effective yesterday it was broadcast by NBC from 7 to 7:30 p. m. Smilin' Ed McConnell has asked his listeners to decide if they want him to sing hymns on each of his daily programs over Columbia and WFBM at 3:45 p. m., or if they want one day set aside for the old facorites. Most singers shy away from tomatoes especially the overripe variety but Kenny Baker, tenor featured on the Star Theatre carried WFBM and the Columbia Broadcasting System, spends his spare time developing chemically-grown tomato vines. In between experiments Kenny's heard at 8 p. m. on Wednesdays. Actors cast in the roles of villains usually have a secret desire to be the hero of the plays. But Hanley Stafford, who plays the bossy "Mr. Dithers" in Columbia's "Blondie" series, likes being the villain. Stafford, however, changes characterizations after his Monday evening CBS broadcast and becomes the worried, harried father of Baby Snooks on th NBC "Good News" program Thursday nights.
