Our unpaid war loans amount to 12 billions. With interest charges, care of wounded and disabled, widows and orphans, and pensions, the war now has cost us at least 55 billions. Deadly Parallels Seen Those studying means of "waging 1914, to Roosevelt's in 1935, may be noted. The cards today are stacked against neutrals perhaps more strongly than they were in 1914. Faster boats, bigger and better planes, universal radio, have linked countries closer together, increased the- contacts and possibilities of friction for neutrals. There is an even less definite tinder- standing of the rights of neutrals than there was in 1914. Such rights were then believed fairly well-defined. Neutral Has No Rights Today you will find veil-versed men in Washington who will tell you that a neutral has no rights at al 1 today that a war-desperate country is likely to respect; no rights, in other words, that the neutral country is unwilling to fight for. And when you fight for neutral rights you arc no longer neutral. What neutral rights are worth insisting yn at th c risk of war? That is the question being studied in thc capital today, in thc hope of perfecting betted plans to insure neutrality in thc future. , NEXT: Things that may happen, Antioch Mr. and Mrs. Joe Eves were the guests of Mr. and Mrs. W.

You aren't interested. i Well, enither were you in 1914, nor j wore the people who were your pres- I ent age in 1914. I America was utterly unconcerned j when with thc network of diplomacy j which had divided all Europe into | two armed camps well before 19M. I America knew nothing of the train ot' powder which, once lighted at i Sarajevo, automatically ran forward ! to explode all nations at once. Of th e secret treaties, alliances, un- I del-standings, it knew nothing. The j people, the newspapers, government j cfficials, even the State Deportment i itself, were almost equally ignorant. j Today we know a little more alout such things, but not much. ' Security Was False : Most people felt as did David San- Jordan, director cf the World Ptace Foundation, who wrote in 1913, "^hat shall we say of thc Great Wac of Europe, ever threatening, ever impending, and which never comes? We -shall say that it will never cqnie. Humanly speaking, it is impossible." The assassination cf Hie Austj-ian archduke on June 28, 1914. was a »ne- day sensation in thc American pagers. Few had ever heard of either the archduke or Sarajevo. It couldn't be important. For nearly a month America forgot it, and then suddenly, about July 25, the papers blossomed with "Euwpe at Point of War;" ; j Even when on August 4, all Europe j was ablaze, few people believe? it I cculd have any direct effect on Airer- ' icu. The New York Sun well rc[re- I scntcd thinking America ponion wien it. said: "There is nothing roasoneble in such a war as that for which Iu- ropt has been making ready, anc it would be folly for thc country to sacrifice itself to the frenzy of ly- nastic politics and the clash of ancwn hatreds which is urging the old wwld to destruction." SHU, We Went to War Such words ar c being writen to(ay. But the important thing is that 32 months after the Sun wrote their in 1914. the Unied States was :it var. Tlie mere fact of essential indiffereicj to a war is no longer any guarutle. 1 that you can stay neutral. There are other ominous comjar- iscns. In the summer of 1914 sick times were coming on, as today bjsi- ncss is still fur below irjrmal. !' Thc political situation was somqv|iat similar. Opposition to a reform Djm- oertilic administration, to Wilson'^ in How a Woman's Nervousness Was Helped by Cardui "Shortly before thc birth of my youngest child I was very nervous and run-clown in every way," writes Mrs. Fcrnsell 1 it-dale, of South Blooming- villc. Ohio. "I had lost my appetite and was so nervous I could not sleep. I heard of Cardui and decided to give it a trial. After I had taken CMC bottle, I was .'•) much better every way that I got six bottles and took them. My neighbors all say they never .saw anyone make such a change in so short a time. I have built back my weight and today I am a strong and healthy mother." Thou;:andi of women testify Cardui benefited them. If it does not benefit YO'U, consult a physician. —adv.
