Stakes and Spectacles on Far East Trade THERE has been a great deal of toplofty talk about "on • 1 stake in the Far East," and the value of trade with China and Japan as affecting American policy there. Instead of windy generalities about such trade, the thing to do is to put on a pair of spectacles and look closely. Th< Commerce Department's most recent trade figures are grooc ones on which to focus the spectacles. They reveal that for the month of August. American exports were as follows: Buyer 1936 193,7 China $ 4,810.000 $ 6,08l',000 Japan 10,763,000 24,644,000 U.,S._imports from these countries during- the same period were: 'From China $ 4,693,000 $ 7.961,000 From Japan 16,948,000 16,297,000 Now of course this is an appreciable stake, and helps greatly in the building- up of American export trade, which was ?178,975,000 in August. 1936, and jumped to $277,695.000 in August, 1937. •K * * THE 1936 figures are more reliable as a gauge for the 1 future, because the increase in both China's and Japan's imports from the United States this year is clearly due in both cases largely to their demand for war materials, airplanes for the Chinese, and scrap-iron and other similar supplies for the Japanese. Such trade is temporary. We found that out to our cost when Europe fought in 1914-1918. After the war it sud- dently dropped away, leaving us holding a great bag of increased production facilities and no sales. Therefore the -"war boom" in sales to China and Japan is nothing to get enthusiastic about. s * * * TAKING the figures for 1936, before the present war began, 1 we find that American exports to Japan were only exceeded by those to Canada and the United Kingdom, while we sent as much export to Cuba as to China, and more to Australia and South Africa. Even under the "war boom" conditions in China and Japan, causing them to take an abnormal amount of American goods, only a fraction more than 10 per cent of America's rising exports went in August to both countries combined. 'And of course export takes only a small percentage of all American production. Beside this trade, with its tremendous risks of war, the market of peaceful nations who can trade with us and with each other in amity and good will, together with that tremendous home market that is the greatest of all, look very attractive indeed. Quaint Customs TN THE eastern part of the country is a religious sect whose 1 members sling still to the quaint old beliefs that a man's . word is as good as his contract," that one should not borrow . jmqre than he intends to repay, and that the simple things of -'Ma are best. „ ' Queer, these people who are so far behind the times. They know not the joy of installment purchases, double deal* ingf onerous debt. Their beliefs set them entirely apart. Yet they live in peace and contentment, in fellowship and .."friendship with their neighbors, unworried by tomorrow's reckoning. And the hurrying, blase world might find the " Utopia jt seeks in the life of these fortunate, carefree farmers. The Great Wall St. Mysters -* Continued ocfor M. Rtg. V. 8. Pat. Off. B; UK.

"I suppose shall have to begin taking my tonic gain, as I did last winter. The rnin- te summer is over, I get this weary eeling." "t had been rainy and cold for sev- ral days. Mrs. Adams' spirits were t a low ebb. "Shut up here in the louse all day by myself, I gel so nerv- ous and lonely I could cry," was her next mental comment. "Nothing but work and the family so wrapped up in their own affairs they never give me a thought. Even John comes home and won't talk to me. He gets his paper and that's the end of him. He doesn't care how I feel or what I do." Just then she heard her next door neighbor calling. "Mrs. Adams, are you there?" She opened the kitchen door and, taking her sweater off the nail, went out. "Yes. Mrs. Miller. here I am." "I wanted to show you this egg." Mrs. Miller passed a bowl over the dividing fence, and Mrs, Adams looked in. "One egg?" she gasped. It had three yolk.s. They talked awhile as women will. The egg germ into Johnny's rash, the new soap powder and old Mrs. Simmons' death; John's arthritis and Mrs. Miller's winter coat. The air was fresh and cool, and when Mrs. Adams went into set the table she was humming. She no longer felt tired. "It does me good to talk to someone." she thought.

Her father wuniH no one ever CHAPTER VII T3UYING "Sun Over Seville" was accomplished with more ease than Jill dreamed possible. She arranged the purchase through an art dealer, with whom the Wentworth name had worked magic. He promised to seek out the young artist, and buy the painting for an "unknown client" who wished his identity withheld. He would state that the purchaser was an eccentric person who disliked any form of publicity or attention. The sale was negotiated. Jill waited in the vicinity of the telephone for all one day and part of the next. On the second day of her vigil, she v/as rewarded. "Something has happened," came Alan's excited voice over the telephone. "Something extraordinary. I've got to tell you tonight. Could we have dinner together?" "I'll meet you," Jill volunteered, "at Miss Lancaster's." "I'll come out for you," Alan answered. He laughed. "I really can afford to taxi all over the city. Jill, something wonderful has happened!" "You said that brfore," Jill said, crisply. "But this — you don't understand — this is the most extraordinary thing. Shall I tell you now?" "No! Not now!" Jill cried, vehemently. It would be like taking the wrapping off a Christmas package before Christmas, if he told her over the telephone. «. a & MOT long afterward they sat across from each other at a small table. There was a radiance about them that caused others to smile knowingly. "Do we tell the news as an appetizer or~ dessert?" Alan asked Jill. "Appetizer. You don't think I could sit through a whole meal without knowing." He leaned forward, his guze intent on Jill's. "Jill, I've sold a picture!" Alan's voice \vus so gjad it sounded solemn. It hurt Jill, and at the same time made her happy. Suppose, she hadn't thought of do* ing this simple thing for him that was bringing him such happiness and giving him a sense of power and command? "I'm so glad," Jill said, simply. "It's wonderful!" "But, Jill! I told you. this is the most extraordinary thing. You won't believe me. You'll think I've suddenly gone stark crazy. I have sold the picture for $3000." Jill's voice was calm. "I'm sure it was worth it." "Worth it!" Alan stared. "You're an infant in arms. How many artists without reputations sell pictures for $3000? Name one." "I don't know any artist except you," "Then you can't realize how amazing this is. The old codger must have been as crazy as a loon." "What old codger?" "The eccentric old chap who wouldn't pay a cent less than $3000." Jill laughed. "It sounds queer," * * * XTE was studying the glowing tip i of his cigaret now, and missed ' the smile in Jill's eyes. After a moment he looked up. "I remember an old graybeard who came in twice. He would look at the other pictures, but he would always come back to 'Seville. 1 " "Yes," Jill said softly. She persisted loyally: "Just the same, I'm sure it was worth every bit of the money." "The funny part of it is that you may be right," Alan replied. "Though, somehow, I feel like I've robbed a bank. It's the best thing I've done anyway. I put more into it than any other picture I've , : painted. I tested out u lot of theories 1 have about color and color combinations." They left the tearoom and went out into the warm, autumn night. Alan signaled to a taxi. In the darkness of the cab, they moved closer. "Let's ride around for awhile," Alan whispered. "I want to cele-*- brate extravagantly, recklessly. If you only knew all the corners I've cut and the pennies I've saved." He groaned. "On one condition," Jill said. "I take a bus home alone." Jill was frightened. Tonight with the sense of a miracle upon him was no time for him to see the Wentworth town house. It would take the edge off his experience to find he had not been confiding his good fprtune to a girl of average circumstances but to UUK of iiiiiiiKujc wealth. ' * * * A LAN spofee suddenly. "All right. Have it your way, Jill." He realized that Jill did not want him to accompany her home. He tried, reasonably, to justify her. There might be an old grouch for a father. A nervous mother. A living room badly in need of new furniture. Foolish reasons. All of them. But girls had strange notions about things. The taxi rattled along, circling about the city, doubling back on tracks. And then, suddenly, they were both very quiet. A lump was in Jill's throat. It was happening. He was falling in love with her. She knew it without words. A strong tide of feeling was rushing from Alan to her. His hand, holding hers, shook a little. There was a delicious feeling of contentment in the funny old taxi. Jill wished the ride could last forever. "Where to now, sir?" called th« perplexed driver. "Just drive." * * * T HE cab swung nrotind and Alan settled back. He tooh Jill's hand again, pressing it hard. An arm encircled her shoulder, "It's coming!" Jill thought. She didn't know j'tst when, but sne was sure it would be only a matter of moments before Alan kissed her. But, abruptly, Alan was telling the driver to stop. "It's getting late," he said. "You haven't any business going back alone. But if you insist, you had better start." They climbed out and walked through the park. Jill could see the lights of the bus coming nearer. Soon she would be on it, whirled under the tall arch, under the words written there: "Let us raise a standard to which the wise and honest can repair. The event is in the hand of God." She felt very small, very uncertain and uneasy, standing beside Alan; watching the lights of the bus come nearer. Jt stopped. A young girl with a gay, red feather in her hpt, tugged confidently at the arm of her young man as they clambered aboard. Two older people — an acid-eyed woman and a jolly, roly-poly looking man waited for Jill and Alan to climb aboard. Suddenly, Alan put his arms about Jill, crushing her close in his arms. Kissing her long, hard and desperately. "All aboard," grumbled the con* ductor, doubtless envying Alan.. Jill, released, ran up the steps. From her seat she gazed down at Alan with eyes like stars. The bus clattered on. Jill's thoughts sang with the stars. The event was in the hands of fate now. She sent up a little prayer. (To Be Continued) hungry now." Are you Mrs. Adains, denr mothcf?

On bud clays, she should bundle up and walk the porch or sidewalk, taking deep breatlis of nature's tonic, fresh air. "Blues" are frequently oxygen starvation. By Bruce Cation Franklin Lives Agnin in New Biogniphy. One of the great regrets of the literary world has been that Bonjmnin Franklin never found time in his busy old age to complete his "Autobiography." Unfortunately, that famous book runs only to his fiftieth year and the crowning achievements, much of the amazing part of his career, is omitted. So to close that gap, to round out the story of Franklin's last 30 years. Nathan G. Goodman wrote "Benjamin Frnnklin's Own Story" (University of Pennsylvania Press. $2.501. And assuredly here is an intriguing document. The book includes Franklin's "Autobiography," reprinted in full and concludes with Dr. Goodman's sketch of his life from 1759 to his death in 1790. The sketch is based largely on the great American's own writings.*jotted nt random in his late years; thus the tone of the "Autobiography" is kept to the end. You follow the Philadelphia patriot avidly through those final crowded decades; his appearance before Parliament to plead for the colonists on the eve of the Revolution; his manifold activities after war was declared; his participation in the peace negotiations; his philosophies; and finally his part in building the government that is America's today. One of the high, dramatic moments of the book is the short but memorable address Franklin delivered at the conclusion of the Constitutional Convention on September 17, 1787. "I confess," said that foundling father, "that I do not entirely approve of this Constitution at present, but, Sir, j I am not sure I shall never approve j it; for. having lived long, I have ex- > CL-trm-COPR. 1937 BY NEA SERVICE.
