Friendship Cools Fast It is for these reasons that the traditional friendship between Italy and England has been cooling so fast and so noticeably o£ late. It is for these reasons that Britain is so vitally interested in the current tension between Italy and Russia and in the proposead naval agreement to control submarine activities in the Mediterranean. And it is largely for these reasons that Britain today is calling on all her vast resources to support the greatest rearmament program in her peacetime history.

But unlike the American boy, Gino has a certain extra obligation. Soldier of the Italian empire he must become Gino is 14. He' has passed through five years of free and obligatory elementary school and two of the four years o£ lower middle school. At 1( he will pass into one or the other 01 the various upper middle institutes which will prepare him for a definite career, Army Service Required His father is thinking about the university career which may take him to the threshold of any one of the learned professions. So is Gino. But no matter what they think, Gino must become a soldier. If he quits education after upper middle school he must enter the king's army at 21 If he decides and qualifies for university training, he will receive the equivalent of a year's army service in extended reserve officer training. Gino has already received a grounding in latlian grammar, arithmetic, history, Fascist culture and military theory, religion and physical culture. He is an Avanguardista, or one of the younger members of the Fascist youth organization. He did not join because of state compulsion, but rather because of moral persuasion. He likes to march sing and go on camping trips with the other million boys of the organization Many Enter Profession Four general courses of education are open to Gino. He has his eyes on the learned professions; therefore' Tie has enrolled in the Ginnasio branch where the academic side of his education will be stressed.

Divides Its Forces This comparison shows the British navy to be immensely the stronger. But the catch in that is that Britain has a world-wide empire to protect and must divide its forces. It keeps a strong Home Fleet in the English channel and the North Sea, maintains a powerful Mediterranean fleet based on Malta and Gibraltar, and keeps the rest along empire trade routes all over the globe. On the other hand, the entire Italian fleet can be concentrated all the time in the Adraitic and Mediterranean. On his home grounds, so to speak, Mussolini is much more nearly a match for John Bull than the cold figures would indicate. !t would not seem, on the surface, that armies would play much part in any fight between Italy and England.

BEATTY AP Feature Service Writer WASHINGTON.—If you're interested in every-day economics, you can disregard most of the pretty Labor Day messages nnd orations, and concentrate on this fact: Just so long as John L. Lewis' CIO and William Green's A. F. of L. continue their struggle for supremacy, there will exist presure for the federal government to step in and regulate the new-found strength of organized labor. Proof of that is already in the record. Last spring congress made gestures toward passing a law to penalize reckless labor acts after the sit-down strike had stretched public patience almost to the breaking point. The senate went so far as to denounce the sit- down technique. It was even suggested that labor organizations he incorporated—an idea detestable to every true union man. Senator Vandenburg o£ Michigan proposed to punish irresponsible labor groups by prohibiting their collection of union clues. Nobody Docs Anything The laws proposed last spring are merely sleeping until public opinion again presses them into the legislative hopper. Next time they may not die, particularly if labor's private war puts both employers and the public "in the middle." And nobody in organized labor is doing much, publicly at least, to stop the flames of disscntion spreading through organized labor's private estates. On the contrary, leaders in labor's rival households seem to be pouring fuel on the fire with all the enthusiasm . of a small boy trying to burn down the schoolhouse. The Labor Day speeches of John L. Lewis and William Green certainly didn't go very far toward stopping the conflagration. President's Warning President Roosevelt himself has warned federal employers they have no right to strike. No federal employe has made the slightest move to strike. Then why did the President warn them? Because the rival labor camps are organizing unions among federal workers. The President has gone out of his wa yto express his apprehension. He has attempted to choke off the growth of a power that one day could challenge the dignity of government itself. That can reflect nothing less than a Presidential temper to head off and prevent excesses in labor activity—a disposition to regulate, if that should be necessary. / A Case in Court Simultaneously, a .clear-cut case between the Green federation and the Lewis CIO is heading toward the Supreme Court from Ambridge, Pa., home of the, National Electric Products corporation. That corporation signed up with the A. F. of L. unions, only to come face to face with a CIO contest before the national labor relations board. The CIO electrical union charged the com- pany with coercing employes to join the A. F. of L. rival. Green's faction promptly appealed to a federal district court, which just as promptly wrote its okny on the federation contract. But the labor relations board ordered the employes to the ballot box to determine whether CIO or A. F. of L. had a majority. Another federal court has declined to interfere with the board. Regulation Begins .s Now where docs that leave the warring groups within labor's ranks? Just here: One faction of labor (CIO) is testing in tho courts a closed shop contract under the national labor relations law, for such was the contract signed by the electrical corporation and A. F. of L. In other words, CIO has brought Into question the principle of the closed shop—the principle for which it long has fought—in order to protect its rights in Ambridge, Pa. The courts may not have to pass directly on the point, but one side will win the case somewhere along the court line, and the public will form its own opinions accordingly. Thus the regulation of Ibaor through interpretation oC its own mngnn chartii —the national labor relations act—has already begun. All these things reflect a mounting pressure to impose unwelcome responsibilities on organized labor; and as long as labor's internecine war continues, that pressure will remain to plague labor's hard won advances.

OTIS BARTON, underwater explorer: "After a dive in the'bathy- sphere'—or any time I'm tired — I smoke a Camel. I get a 'lift' with a Camel." Year in and year out, Camel pays millions more for finer tobaccos. And smokers do appreciate the added pleasure this means to them! IRENE SHERWOOD, shopper: "Noon-time is one of my busiest times. That's why "for digestion's sake — smoke Camels' means so much to me." /"VAMEL'S use of choicer, costlier to- v_> baccos has been the subject of much discussion. The question has often been raised as to whether or not people could tell the difference. The way smokers feel gives the answer! Camels are the largest-selling cigarette in America...or the world. If you are not a Camel smoker, perhaps you, too, would enjoy a cigarette with a richer, cooler taste. Turn, then, to Camels. Put them to the severest test — smoke them sleiiilily.
