By WILLIS THORNTON NEA Service Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON—The whole country resounds today with a great cry for neutrality in case war should again rack Europe. But the thoughtful here realize that this is no guarantee of future neutrality. They remember thnt when the European war broke out in IBM, th c American people were practically unanimous in thc wish to remain neutral. On August 19, 1DH, with the World war not three weeks old, President Wilson made a solemn appeal for neutrality, urging the country to be "neutral in fact as well as in name ..." "We must be impartial in thought as well as in action, must put a curb upon our .sentiments," he cried, "us well as upon every transaction thnt might be construed as a preference for one party to the struggle before another." Realizing that everything depended "upon what American citizens may say and do," Wilson in his appeal urged a high purpose that is worth recalling today. For of course thc partisanship that developed in America toward the contending sides in j> thc European war was the ultimate cause oE our entering it. Partisanship Rears Head Already there are organizations functioning in the United States which will try to help Ethiopia or Italy, and try to swing American public opinion toward their respcetice causes. Should war come, around such nuclei, bodies of opinion would immediately begin to form within the United States, and they would not be neutral "in fact as (Continued on page two) How Arms Increased in 1913-1935 10% ; TOTAL'']!>OP -.

By ALEXANDER GEORGE AfMit'ialcd I'ress Correspondent WASHINGTON—War clouds cast their shadows on a sunny Italy where three times a.s many American citizens reside as in any other European country. There arc- approximately 31,000 Americans living in the land of Mussolini, according to estimates of the state department based on reports by consuls made early this year. This compares with 10,:il5 in France and 10,252 in Great. Britain and Northern Ireland which have the next largest American colonies in Europe. A large majority of the American citizens living in Italy, however, are believed to be of Italian birth or extraction.

By MELVIN E. COLEMAN Associated Press Staff Writer; There's a new shadow across Europe. The shadow might well be labelled "sanctions," for talk of using that League weapon brought it into existence. Sanctions, especialy economic ones, need unanimty to be effective, League circles at Geneva predict that if such measures are voted ,the step will-be taken without dissenting voices, but there will be silent voices. Some governments ,it is said, are almost certain to "abstain," a method of keeping still akin to the defendant who when asked to plead guilty or not gui,lty, "stands mute," ' Situations-Delicate" Geneva has reported that Switzer^ land and Austria, both coneeting Italy and Germany, arc in especially delicate situations so far as sanctions are concerned. Their railroads haul goods chiefly to and from Italy. Austria's j state-owned lines would be ruined, I Vienna has told Geneva, if this traffic ; were cut off. Switzerland, besides a like dilemma, i is confronted with thc fact that a , fourth of her population is Italian in ' ancestry and speech and not likely to 1 take with grace thc application of pun: Hive measures to their mother country. ' Germany is out of Die league in all : except name and her membership | ceases formally on October 21,- ghe ' i may continue to collaborate' with pe- . ncva on social questions, but thus far no one with a shred of authority has ' ventured to vision Hitler's nazis supporting Franco - British efforts to quench Italian ardor in Africa. Berlin has said merely that she would remain neutral so t'ar as fighting is concerned.
