Can't Take Sides and Remain Neutral .THE partial embargo laid on shipments of arms and muni- :-l tions to the Far Eastern war zone offers us a fine chance to examine the ins and outs of our neutrality policy—or, for . "that matter, of any neutrality policy. It isn't much of an embargo, so far. All it does is prohibit the shipment of munitions to either China or Japan on government-owned merchant vessels. But the reactions that have already taken place are significant. Already cables from Shanghai are reporting the Chinese much depressed by the move—as depressed, said one dispatch, as .if a great Japanese military victory had been announced. And since the ordinary American probably sympathizes with China rather than with Japan in the present crisis, it won't take long for a bumper crop of American protests to make its appearance. For the catch in the whole thing lies in the fact that Japan has a strong navy and one of the world's largest merchant fleets, while China has no navy worth mentioning and no merchant fleet of any consequence. This embargo, in other words, hurts China and helps Japan. For the Japanese cruisers can intercept the few Chinese ships that come over to America to get munitions, while Japanese freighters can keep a steady stream of such supplies pouring into Japan. XXX THIS neutrality policy, then, throws our weight on the side 1 of Japan. And an American who feels that it is China rather than Japan which deserves our help can hardly be blamed for protesting about it. But the point, of the whole matter is that by adopting a neutrality policy—any neutrality policy—we are definitely undertaking to refrain from taking sides in overseas quarrels. We are taking the position that our one concern is to keep out. of war, and that all other things must be subordinated to that-end. If we wish, we can scrap that policy and go back to the old way. When a war like this one between China and Japan breaks out we can look things over, make up our minds which side we sympathize with, and then give that side such indirect support as we can. But if we do that we run the risk of getting into the war HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS .>• ••u^ihj 11 U n n •BTrTjITT -• -'•— "^ i ti't H'Tr r __- _\ .-.;. • i t3rrr~'~ i •'".fr.l-^" '••_ i-fv;^ JL ^^.— ---^ The Seasons • ^ 'j/ Wednesday, September 2j),,1537, impetuous niul menu nothing. Part of this training must ncccssnri- ly take place in public. The child has no practice at home with strangers, so it behooves the mother to admonish him in the presence of others.

Temper \Vllh Kcason These are normal, and the caller will understand that he, or she, is background you must use to impress a certain lesson. But it irritates people to see a mother do all her correcting in their presence. So much of it is unnecessary. There are mothers who are never at rest a moment when their children are present with outsiders. They fear for their own reputations. And this was what probably prompted the punishment of the child who popped out on the porch in her nighties. What would the neighbors think? How could this little one discriminate between her night drawers and the sun suits she wore nil summer? Lot us not bruise the natural reasoning of little children. Often a word will do, and a kindly speech about the fitness of things, instead of driving a lesson home with n paddle or harsh word. This little girl is afraid of her shadow.

XXX W E can't eat our cake and have it too. We can't have a neutrality policy designed to keep us out of war. and still guide our policy by our sympathies with one or another of the contestants in a foreign war. It has to be one or the other. We ought to digest that fact right now. If a major war breaks out in Europe, our sympathies will be far more deeplv involved than they are now in China. Onlv by realizing in advance that we must forget all about those sympathies to maintain our neutrality will we be able to adopt a keep-out- of-war policy and make it stick. Keep munitions off of government ships and we may heln Japan. Okay; we shall also help to keep our army on this side of the Pacific—which is exactly where it belongs. Wall Street Protest THE recent drop in the stock market has caused Wall treet 1 to renew its protests ae-ainst the Government's attempt to .regulate the exchange. The Securities and Exchange Commission is being blamed for recent inacticity in the market, and it is being charged that the Federal Reserve Board's tight margin restrictions are keening the public out of the market. With this last nrotest there is not apt to be a great deal of public sympathy. What happened just before the 1929 crash is fairly good evidence that it doesn't do the country a great deal of gwcl to ha-ve the public "in the market." _ The stock market exists to pi-ovide a free market for securities. It can exercise that function without enlisting the dollars of the little fellow. Gamblers may make fewer killings ;vhen the little fellow stays out, but otherwise it would seem that the country is just as well off. •E, M, Re*. U. 8. Pat. Off, By DE.

If this seems unusual and cruel. I wish to assert that it is quite common for children to be punished for just such silly things as this. Parents want manners are concerned but disregard the effect on the child when he is punished for perfectly normal behavior. Watch this. You may be unwittting- ly doing the same tiling. What Will Others Think? Much so-called misbehavior in chil- bargcs into a party to tell his mother that he made a hundred in spoiling. She is shocked that he no more regard for her friends than to interrupt them at bridge. Little Mabel walks into the house next door and asks for a cookie. Her mother nearly dies of shame and spanks her for being so cheeky. Why? Because she is more anxious for her friends' good opinion, than .«hc is about the sense of fairness of her child. All children are spontaneous. Bless them, they could teach us a lot. They do what they think is right and fail- most of the time. O'f course, if Johnny is perpetually rude or Mabel ocntin- ually forward and cheeky, then they hav» to be trained in the way they should go.

If any of the tenants in the house had come from Utah, Mr. Johnson would remember it. Moving men have to see the supfrin- tendent before unloading their vans: and a truckload of furniture coming from jhe Far West would arouse curiosity. "Good morning, Mr. Johnson."

Cilly thought i quite suddenly that she would never want to meet the superintendent alone on the roof at midnight . . . * * * "WELL, Miss Pierce!" *' She turned, startled by his voice, and dropped a book she was examining.

"What a man want* to read," he said sharply, "is nobody's business. Now what can I do for you, Miss Pierce?" Cilly never remembered hearing Mr. Johnson speak in s'.ich a curt, unfriendly tone.

For sheer fun for the starting-to- schoolers, there are "Bertram and His Fabulous Animals," by Paul T.

"Bertram and His Fabulous Animals" tells of the troubles one small boy gets into when he brings home a griffin, a mermaid, a firceating dragon u baby dinosaur, a unicorn, and finally Pegasus, the winged horse, himself.
