Americans' Big Stake in a Powerful Navy E VEN the most convinced pacifist must have moments, these days, in which he feels like thanking his God for the United States, Navy. We seem to have passed entirely out of the era in which international law or international treaties meant anything in particular. What makes the present so dark and the future SO discouraging is the fact that the world has reverted to the rule of brute force. • " A nation's only, safeguard lies in its own strength; and it'is extremely comforting to see that America's strength is fully implemented—sinewed and made ready in a way no one can mistake. XX X have been one of the world's luckiest nations for a century and a half—lucky because of our isolation, because of our infinite supply of natural resources, because de'stiny supply of natural resources, because destiny fixed things-so that we could work out our own salvation in our own way. But lucky nations are on the spot nowadays. The nations which have not been lucky have set out to take the things -•which have been denied them. In Ethiopia, in Spain and in- China we have had ample opportunity to see just how determined and ruthless this desire to get a better share of the good things of this earth can make a people. It used to be supposed that simply to possess strong armaments put a nation on its muscle. Build a great fleet or a great army and you will sooner or later go looking for a chance to use it—so ran the argument. But our own recent experience disaproves that. We have one of the two mightiest navies on earth—yet we have resolutely kept our skirts clear of all.entanglement in the Mediterranean, and have followed, in China : precisely the course we would have followed if our fleet were small and weak. And as we do this we have the comfort of knowing that the war cannot be brought to our own shores. What happened to Nanking and Madrid won't happen to San Francisco or New, -York. Not until our navy is destroyed—and there exists today no power that could destroy it—can that be inflicted on us ' ,. . ;. . xxx O UR old" pre-war outlook, which held that strong armaments were somehow incompatible with peace-loving democracy, has had to.change. Democracy today is on trial as never before/ It has to be strong enough to defend itself against powers which would destroy it. Until this turbulent and uncertain era passes, it is hard to see'how we can do anything else than £eep our fleet as strong-as the strongest and as ready as the readiest. Practical Conservatism W ILLIAM 0. DOUGLAS, new chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, sounds like a pretty good sort of man for the job. He explains that his function, as he sees it, is to fight for markets which are honest and "free of monkey business." And then he goes on to answer the complaint that he is a hair-brained radical: "I think I am really a pretty conservative sort of a fellow from the old school, perhaps a school too old to be remembered, I think that from the point of view of investors the one safe cntrollinjar and guiding stand should be conservative standards of finance—:no monkey business." That, as he says, is genuine conservatism—of a kind which has now and then seemed rather out of date in Wall Street, It would not hurt the investing public in the least to have such conservatism enforced on the market.

Without Early Diagnosis, Treatment Prospects for Cancer Cure Are Slim This is the 17th of a series in which Dr. Morris Fishbein discusses cancer, Its causes and meth* ods of prevention and treatment. (No. 338) Cancers may be internal or external, j Many people will watch a cancer grow ] on the surface of the body for months or years before they do anything about it. Then the outlook is hopeless. Moreover, cancers in the interrior of the body may give rise to symptoms which will be regularly neglected because they are not sufficently severe.

In association with the developmen of a cancer in the lung there may be coughing, the pouring of pus from thi infected tissues of similar seriou symptoms. Occasionally people wit! cancer of the brain may add years tc their lives by having the skull openec and the tissue removed, In cancer of the lung life may be extended by complete removal of thi lung after it has been collapsed wit! pneumothorax. A cancer in the pancreas may b detected by the development of tot much insulin and by the fatigue an tiredness associated with excessiv burning of sugar in the body. On expert says that nobody with a can cer of the pancreas or liver has eve survived and that only about 5 pe cent of those with cancer of the stom ach are saved. Since every hope rests in treating cancer at the- earliest possible moment physicians are likely to say over anc over again that it is absolutely neces sary for the people concerned to ge to competent scientific advice as soon as possible. The situation seerns to be improving because nowadays many people are being saved who would not have been saved in a previous generation. Yet 3000 people still die every year in the United States from cancers of the skin —all of which are curable in the early stages—and 10,000 women die every /ear front cancer of the breast, which s curable in 80 per c,ent of oases if seen early.

Farley May Qnit to Head Car Firm As Pierce Arrow President He Would Be "Economic Nobleman" By PRESTON CiROVER WASHINGTON. ~ Jim Farley's reported decision to quit the government and become an economic noble- nan, if not quite a royalist, ought to esctie him from a host of ptmgs. The years of the open hand when 'arley wns the lord high dispenser of ederal patronage were pleasant years or a man of his disposition. To the oyal party servants who helped him make Die party great he could be lib- *rnl without stint, for not, in history vas there such a prolonged period of live bulging purse. But the times have changed and the land that fed the patronage lions must low beat them back. Most of the pie s gone and the man who dispenses what is left for the next three or four years will have to say "No" more often than "Yes." Farley may have the ability to say 'No" and make 'em like it, but not in recent years has he had much experience along that tine. Rising Value A stack of reasons could be given 'or Farley's decision to leave as early is possible to become (as good report! lad it) the president of Fierce-Arrow Victor Company, Farley may never have measured them all out in his mind in deciding this was the time to :o, but his decision turns the light on them, regardless. First off, his $12,000 a year job as jostmaster general isn't fat money for the new Jim Farley. t,ike many another public servant, his public life ins enhanced his value in the private swirl. It isn't to be denied that FaFrley was doing fair to middling in the years mmediately before he came into the public eye as national Democratic chairman, Nek York state chairman, and ultimately as postmaster general. 3ut it is not of record that he had at- :ained such standing in the industrial world that he was in line to head a major motor company, albeit he was well known to be a first line salesman. Before his elovation to the cabinet, was New York state boxing commissioner, a job he received, by the way, from Governor Al Smith upon the recommendation of Jimmy Walker, ex-mayor. That also was a pubic office that helped build up the service value of Jim Farley. 'Farley has flung himself into public :ife with both zeal and talent, but in return public life has not done badly jy him. There's 19-10 A second reason for his present departure from public life is that he isn't adverse to more of it. New York will elect a governor next year, and Farley las never isdicated he would pass up a job like that just now. Moreover, he is only 49 and should need no telescope to seethe presideh- tial possibiilties for himself in 1940, especially if he should win the gover- Of Corset's in the Best Form as 10 Pounds of Mae Go West ttOLLYWOOD.—Sometimes it tnkes four hours of waiting around just to see Mae West for a few minutes. Sometimes it's worth it. Miss West has lost 10 pounds, so I don't suppose she required the four hours to get into one of her 17 Schiap- arelli gowns. Anyway she remained In her bungalow, knowing that she would be sent for as soon as the set and lights and camera and other players were ready for another scene in "Every Day's a Holiday." While waiting, I went into a projec» lien room and saw some rushes of the scenes taken the day before. It was New Year's Eve. and Peaches O'Day (Miss West) wns hipping along the street and meeting Edmund Lowe. Lowe plays a captain of detectives who has been assigned to bring in Peaches because of her bad habit of selling the Brooklyn Bridge. But Lowe hates the police commissioner as much as he likes Peaches, so they get to talking about the official: Mae: He's sore because 1 didn't toss him a tumble." Lowe: "Has that rat been making love to you?" Mae: "Well, he's gone through all the emotions." That ought to give you an idea. Back on the set, it was .something of a shock to sec two nuns, real nuns, sitting on the sidelines watching the action. They wouldn't allow their pictures to be taken. Later( visiting Miss West's new bungalow, I found her maid replacing a couple of nude statues which had been removed before the sisters' visit. Pink. Baby Blue Bath The bungalow is just as modern as her pictures are old-fashioned. First thing that hits your eye is the dormat. which says, "Come up and see me some time." 'Inside the chief display piece is a startling, unclad, snow- white statue labeled "Mae West," and executed by Gladys Lewis Bush. The living room and dressing room are done all in white and cream, even to the piano and set of drums which stand in one corner. The actress likes to beat out some hot licks on the traps. Finds it soothing to the nerves.' But she didn't demonstrate. I even had a chance to inspect the norship next year. And that raises a third point that may come into play in his tside from the mail pouches to the elegance of Pierce-Arrowdom. Genial Jim, the generous giver cf patronage, is known and loved by Democrats the nation over. But if Genial Jim should, stay on during the years of expected retrenchment and become Jim the denier, his lovability might be forgotten when time came in 1940 to pick a man to save the game from the Tigers. To Farley, life has been a constantly expanding universe, and if for a time he leaves a steadily shrinking patron-' age job to join up with a motor company it will be right in character. the seventeenth, n scarlet number with a Ince business nl the—nh—throat. In spile of her 10-pound reduction she stlH h sato wear a corset, of course. She didn't mind being aaked, cither. She said, "No, 1 really like corsets. They're comfortable. They make you feel just like you're being held. "But 1 don't wear the long ones. Mine come just down to here. Belter than n girdle. I don't tike girdles." When she said "clown to here," slio indicated a latitude just a little south of the West hips, Apparently she has been doing some more research on hour-glass rfigures, for n* table wns piled with women's magazines of about 1900. "Wouldn't it be n good idea to have n small corset made for thnt statue?" asked Miss West, indicating the figure by Sculptress Bush. "Or would the Hays office object?" I said 1 thought the Hays office probably would approve any sort of covering for the figure. India's white elephants become royal property nl birth. In the United States they are passed around and wind up us public property. Research shows that in the 17th century the table knife was used for cutting as well as eating. In the unskilled pen-balancer's hand, it still serves both purposes. Added to the disillusions of cynics' claims' that the Constitution is not tncred, someone now has a cruel theory that Cinderella's slippers actually were not glass. A German streamlined train is called the "Flying Hamburger." A schoolchild could guess the names of its Pullman cars—-"Onion," "Pickle," and 'Lettuce"—both. Cora wonders why, if Mother Nature is the most beautiful tiling in the universe, all these airmen are continually trying to girdle the earth. bath. It's done in baby blue and pink, mirrors and chromium, and reveals at a glance that Cecil DcMille was just an amateur in his fancy- bathroom clays. Miss West is just cur-r-razy about the place. F<nk and baby blue are her favorite colors. The hat shelf looks like an aviary. There are ostrich plumes, and birds that seem to fly and roost and swoop. The acercss says there is nothing to that old adage about birds ot a feather. Hour-Glass Figuring Her dressing-room closet, about the size of a boxcar, was lined with 16 Schiaparelli gowns.

Why id crime increasing in the younger ranks? What are parents thinking about when they allow their children to go places and do things they hnve no idea of?" He! is right. Where lins the freedom demanded by the sympathizers of youth led us? Look at the figures. Seventy per cent of all crime is com* milted by hoys (mid girls) under ago. Taking into consideration that outside forces sire tit work which never entered the picture before, there Is still this to say. Discipline at home has become more Inx, especially where adolsceiits arc concerned. The steady pull has been awny from home. Parents have had n double battle to fight, it is true, but instead of valiantly making a fight against the obscure recreations of their children, have supcincly allowed their authority to be undermined by advisors who insist that youth needs greater freedom and independence to work out ideas and ideals. The younger child, too. has tot) often been suppressed. But conformity and regulation should be part of each growing year. Individualism is important. Self suffiicency is important. The growing child should be strengthened to the proper kind nf self dependence. But again, parents hnve to frequently misundestotxl the rign», and have been led lo think they must relinquish all authority. 1 admire the mother and father who insist ;iml cuisine, is entirely due to my wife.—Osciir Tschirky, New York, noted chef.
