Three Days of Community Entertainment-Southwest Arkansas Merchants & Farmers Fair, in Hope October 21-22-23. Our Daily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor Alex. H Washburn « Hope Star Land of Cherry Blossoms I F Germany was a trnjrit figure when her absolute ruler pluriKod her into war 23 years ago consider how doubly trag-ic ia the case today of the whole Japanese people. Twice within the last year the duly-elected representatives of the people in the parliament have voted down the Japanese military group, twice the parliament has been dissolved, and twice the whole Japanese people at the polls have sustained the voice of moderation and of. peace. But the people have been disregarded. The world knows that Japan's foreign wars are unpopular at home. The world also knows, however, that Japan, body and soul, is virtually owned by four ruling families. They, through the emperor, control the army and the navy—and without the consent of the army and the navy no new cabinet may be formed, regardless what parliament thinks about it. . It is a situation unparalleled in the present-day civilized world. — — fa No while nice really wnnts wnr WEATHER. Arkansas — Partly cloudy .and war mer Friday nifjht; Saturday mostly cloudy. Japan Aggrieved Because of U. S. Criticism of War Seeking No Territory, But Would Wipe Out Anti- Jap Sentiment NEWSPAPER VIEWS U. S. "Pulling Others' Chestnuts Out of the Fire," Says Japs SHANGHAI. Chinn.— i.'Vi — General Iwunc Mulsui, Japnne.se cominamler- in-chicf on the ShnnKhai front, issue(i a. proclamation Friday—the first official announcement of the Japanesi invasion of China—which the Chinese considered the equivalent of, if no' diplomatically, a formal declanitim of war. Jii|i XewsiMiper Views TOKIO, Japan—</!'»—The Tokio press warned the United States Friday U continue her neutrality in editoria comment on the State Dcpartmen condemnation of Japan ns a treaty violator in China. Typical comment: Miyako— "It (the United States action) is liable to disturb the peace on the Orient, giving rise to a world conflict." Kokumin—"Interference of any third power will open prolong the present conflict." Hochi— "And attempt by various powers to bring concentrated pressure on Japan must be repulsed with vigor." Nichi-Nichi — "The United Suites ought to realize that looking on the mere surface conditions will greatly harm international justice and tlie promotion of world peace." Yomiuri—"Whnt made the United S'lates change policy so suddenly? Why did America, after adhering to n policy of strict neutrality in the Spanish civil war, lose her cool head and come to pull chestnuts from the Far East-* crn fire'.'" ChiiKai~"Tho United States' judgment of Japan's actions is unfortunate but need not surprise us." Asahi—"The United Suites possesses the fairest conception of world affairs especially regarding the Far East. All intelligent Americans know its foreign policy will continue to be directet with discretion and caution. Thus United Stales support of the League is most likely to be confined to morn support nnd even if it accepts tlv League's invitation to a mne-powc conference it is not imaginable tha the United States will entirely disre- (Contmucd on Page Two) with Jupnn. There is much about Japan that is admirable. What the white nations hope for is a change within Japan herself, so that the edicts of her people's elected representatives will be carried out. Then the possibility of war will diminish. For the common people nowhere want war. The Japanese nre individually brave, intelligent nnd thrifty. The world's greatest "copy-cats," they came on the industrial scene long after their white brothers, and in a brief epoch have raised themselves to a level equal with any. The world's case against Japan is not a case against the Japanese jxKiplc. Tho world has so many unsolved problems that It must always welcome any new people who bring courage and intelligence nnd thrift into the common pool of humanity's possessions. But n virtuous people may live under an infamous government. We Americans, sometimes loo boastfully, perhaps, like to think ll::it the Old English were once that way nnd that we reformed them with the lesson of the American Revolution. The disturbing thing about Japan isn't just n war. Wars have come in the history of self-governing people, too. But the disturbing thing is the fear that the rulers who arc running the Japanese war are wholly mad. Facing a man with a gun is one thing—but facing a maniac with a gun is something else. Your writer has a vague hunch Hint before Ms thing is over something will pop inside Japan—and the maniac will be replaced by someone who can be reasoned wUh. .The gun, isn't important. Every nation carries a gun. But the world does have n right to know exactly who is carrying Japan's gun for her. The safety of peace depends on it.

Graves Tell Story •' p^'ink 1 * -'"••'•-' n- •*•- -^v- of Rise of Japan Yellow Empire Lives in Feudal Age, Sells in Modern Age A digest of the history of Japan was given by Albert Graves before Hope Hotary club Friday noon at Hotel Bprlow. Beginning with the opening up of Japan to 'foreign commerce by an American admiral less than a century ago, the speaker traced the nation's phenomenal rise to a point where its industries have captured or damaged the white powers' markets in half the world. Referring to the medieval conditions under which the native Japanese lives, Mr. Graves said: "Japan lives in one age and sells in another." How long it could continue doing so is problematical, and all authoritie are agreed that a long war would b disastrous for the domestic situatioi in Japan, Mr. Graves said. White nations' investigation of labo conditions behind Japan's romarkablj cheap machine goods were no especially fruitful, he said. The Japs while drawing small pay, also enjo cheap living costs. Although the av erage industrial pay is $10 to $11 month in American money, it doesn' draw a comparable comparison be tween American and Japanese living conditions. Nor does the farm comparison, the average American farming 157 acres, while half the Japanese rice farmers hnvc less than an acre and a quarter, and three-fourths of them less tlian two and a quarter acres. The Japanese live happily in their feudal civilization, unmindful of the automobiles and radios owned by the people of the nations they are at present unselling. What will happen if the Japanese suddenly demand some of civilization's luxuries for themselves, is a matter for the future to decide, Mr. Graves concluded.

Answers on Classified P.IKS Italy Is to Turn Down New Parley Will Not Meet Britain and France, on "Volunteers" in Spain ROME, Italy—(£")—Italian refusal to ake part in a three-power conference an the issue of intervention in Spain's ivil war was reported virtually cer- ain Thursday. Premier Mussolini's newspaper, II Popolo d'ltalia of Milan, said Italy would not attend such a conference—i proposed by Great Britain and France —without Germany. The papare reiterated the oft-stated Italian point of view that the issue can be handled best through the 27-Nation Non-intervention Committee ,in London. The article said Italy's answer to the conference invitation practically was ready for delivery. Representatives of France and Britain called upon Italy Wednesday for a reply to the joint invitation. The newspaper did not disclose whether Germany had been consultec by the Italian government. The article traced Italian insistence that the definition of intervention in Spaii should include public enrollment o foreign volunteers, press campaign; and monetary subscriptions on behal of one or the other of the warring parties. It declared that neither France no Great Britain accepted the Italian gov ernfent's suggestion that such "inter ference" be added to tho prohibition in the original set-up of the non-inter vent ion agreement. 'It is not Italy's fault if the prohi bition of intervention was not ex tended fro mthe beginning also t volunteers and the enrollment of vol unteers and if this lack made possibl Russian military intervention and the enrollment of volunteers in the so- called international brigade, which was followed by intervention of volunteers also with the Nationalists (Spanish insurgents)." Italian officials said enemies abroad are spreading false information of troop embarkations for Spain, in the hope of provoking a world war to prevent a victory by insurgent General Franco in Spain. They denied reports Italy is sending 125,000 more soldiers to the insurgents. Several divisions are being sent to Libya to garrison that colony in accordance with Mussolini's promise on his visit there, but there has been no undue troop movement in Italy and no men are being mobilized for Spanish service, officials said.
