Three Days of Community Entertaiiiment-SoMthwest Arkansas Merchants & Farmers Fair, in Hope October 21-22-23, Our Daily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor Alex. H Washbuw Ed Howe T O WRITE what men think, not what they say—to picture with frankness the world as it roiillj' it, ami not what a few think it oiitfht to be—that is a newspaper assignment which few editors have tho courage or wit to cover. But such a man did cover it for half a century. lie died a week ago at his home on Potato Hill, Atchison. Kan. His name was Kd Howe, * Ed Howe's Atchison (Kan.) Globe was famous for two generations (Mr. Howe died at 84) because its editor, instead of pratlinjr about what lie read in books or what might seem to be the conventional thing to say, devoted his life lo the pursuit of hokum, which he punctured with the sharp arrows of truth. Idle people tell you the world itn't a safe place for a man determined to speak the truth. Hut I have been looking over some of the tilings Ed Howe wrote in a daily paper, and I have concluded that while the world doesn't always like the truth it must have decided it was best to keep its temper when Howe was doing the telling—perhaps for fear he might tell still more. <•) The world's love of hokum is, of course, quite incurable. Howe blasted away at it in his dny—but hokum still lives, nnd will always. In our own day we have politicians who claim that the people's first consideration is spending the public (ax money to take care of all (he old folks.

Adams, 53, Salt Lake City banker, Wednesday Wits elected president of the American Bankers association at its 03rd annual convention. He succeeds Tom K. Smith of St. Lo u is. BOSTON, Mass. — i.l') — Denouncing production restriction and price raising as "economic insanity," Dr. Glenn Frank, educator and editor, Tuesday urged industry and agriculture work together to achieve the "abundant life" for million.-, of Americans. "If we are to do more than talk about the abundant life," declared the former president of the University of Wisconsin at the Glird annual convention of the American Bankers association, "then both the manufacturers of American industry and the farmers of American agriculture must come to believe in and to practice consistently the policy of more gods at lower prices instead of fewer goods at higher prices." Dr. Frank defined the 'ba'undtna.si Dr. Frank defined the "abundant life" as meaning "a better fed, better clothed, better housed people, with bodies and minds and spirits emancipated from unduly low living standards and freed for values that lie beyond economics." Then, pointing to bumper corn and cotton crops this fall as evidences i>i actual abudance.s, lie told cheering bankers "the blunt, un gloved brutal truth i.s that except as a justified means of meeting an emergency, there is neither rhyme nor reason in the fantastic notion that we can bring the abundant lift to the American millions by pulling our productive genius in chains, by producing less and charging more. "By our crop restriction to date, justifiable as many have been us cmcr gency measures, we have so stimulated foreign production of the products that some foreign commodity markets may be lost forever to the American farmer, and all he has to show for it is the temporary advantage of the compensation he received for what he did nut uroduce, and, for which cannot be permanent unless he permanently holds his production down to a point at which he will not l>e producing enough to meet the human needs of the American millions if they are ever actually to live the abundant life, instead of hear about it." Tramp Steamers Bring in Huge Profits Today LONDON.—(/Pi—Profits of from 50 t more than 200 per cent on original purchase prices are being made through the sale of tramp steamers. The rise in freight rates caused b> developments in the Mediterranean and Far East and the .seasonal clenuuu for tonnage to move grain have created a great demand for tramps. Some owners are selling newly-buil steamers yl prices far in excess ol their original cost. Many owners expect to be able to repurchase tonnage when prices '.eel; a lower level.

WASHINGTON — (/P) — President Roosevelt disclosed Tuesday night that the United Suites intends to "co-operate" with both China and Japan in seeking n solution of the present conflict. In a significant new statement of foreign policy, embraced in his "fireside chat" to the nation, he confirmed earlier indications that this government will seek to bring about a settlement "by agreement" between the two parties. This effort i.s scheduled to be made at a conference of nations which signed the nine-power treaty of 1922 guaranteeing China's sovereignty. Mr. Roosevelt also broadcast a statement calculated to relieve fears of those who have expressed belief that international co-operation for peace might lead the United States instead into war. "Remember," he said, "that from 1913 lo 1921, 1 was fairly close to world events, and in thai period, while I learned much of what to do, 1 also learned much of what not to do." The president was assistant secretary of the navy in World war days. Calling for the observance by nations of "certain fundamental decencies" in their relations with each other, the president said that the co-operation all signatories to the nine-power treaty "would be an example of one of the possible paths to follow in our search for means toward peace throughout the whole world." The i.Te.sidi.'iit reiterated I,is previous statements that "America bates war" and that "America hopc.s for pence."

Court Issue to Be Revived-Wheeler Will Get Still Fewer Votes Next Time, Declares Westerner GRAND RAPIDS, Mich— (/T 1 )— Senator Burton K. Wheeler (Dem., Mont.) told an audience here Tuesday night that if the administration seeks to revive the Supreme Court reorganization issue, "I can assure them they'll get fewer votes than before." Senator Wheeler, who led the opposition to President Roosevelt's court proposals, said he had thought (he proposal was "dead for all time" but that recent statements by the president and Attorney General Homer S. Cummings indicae an intention to revive the issue, The western senator said he believed with President Roosevent that anarchy prevails throughout the world but that back of treaty violations is "economic anarchy" and that in the United States confusion exiss among politicians and leaders of business. "Today it cannot be said that the Democrats or the Republicans have any definite opinion they can be said to be following, 1 ' Senator Wheeler said. "You have men who call themselves liberals whs say they favor a Communist regime but the same people arc opposed to a totalitarian state. You also find those who favor the totalitarian state but arc opposed to Communism. "Then, too, there are those favoring packing the Supremo Court as the only way to accomplish liberal principles. but, prior to the war, anyone looking to set up a totalitarian state would have been considered a Tory and liberals then would have opposed court packing although they now see no objection to it under the present administration. These same persons would have opposed such a court plan under Coulidge or Hoover." "Once liberals were against monopolies and price fixing," Wheeler continued, "but they favored the NRA No one can say definitely what will be the outcome of all this confusion."

I New Volunteers to Spain, Is Suspicion; Crisis for English British Cabinet Calls Iri Laborite Opposition—• an Emergency ' ALARM FOR EUROPE France and England Disturbed by Threatening Italian Move By the Associated Press Italian Blackshirt leaders Wednesday asked for 50,000 volunteer militiamen to meet "emergencies," as the British cabinet considered a new approach to; the Spanish intervention impasse. "Fascist officials denied that the vol-' unteers were intended for Spanish service, but the British and French governments were known to be disturbed- by recurring reports of further Italian intervention. The two countries, seeking to avoid a direct clash with Italy, yielded to Premier Mussolini's wish to have the London non-intervention committee handle the question. Crisis for England After the cabinet meeting in London, Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain took the unusual step of calling the Laborite opposition leaders into con-- ference—a step which rarely occurs- when parliament is not in session ex-* cept in times of crisis. In Spain fierce fighting continued, especially on the northern front, where insurgents reported advances. Germany 'announced a non-aggression agreement with Belgium. In the Far East the. Japanese made a determined attempt to crash, the Chi- j nese line's across Wentsabpung creek ' into Tazang, five miles northwest of , Shanghai's international settlement*'But, according to a Chinese spokesman, they were forced to retire to their original position leaving 3,000 dead and wounded.

The possibility arose that Great Britain and France might try to get all Mediterranean powers together on his supposed menace to the security of trade routes in the Mediterranean. Both problems were thrashed out by British Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden and Charles Corbin, French ambassador to Great Britain. ' Eden received "very precise" data on the French position with regard to Premier Mussolini's refusal to discuss the withdrawal of Italian troops from Spain in a conference with Great Britain and France.
