1 Tho lean years were upon us— stripped and bare, The dnys stood out as days, and days alone; Cleor-cul and waiting to be lived, nnd there Was nothing loft thnt other dnys had known. The years of plenty, smothered and oppressed With many things, had gone their fatted way, And we, bewildered, stood to face the test, Or stood to fail. I.ithe, nnd unhampered by the weighted years, And hardened for the race that we must run, God helped us clear our eyes of needless tears— Gave us clean air and water and the sun, And daily bread— and, though the way was long, Out of those lean years our grey strong.—Selected. hearts r Father George F.

Political economists are prophesying that it Great Britain approves of military sanctions the world will be off to another war. There is great difference between a war for defense when an enemy asks admittance and one which is part of political intrigue. Ethiopia has to fight, most of us agree, whether or not we approve the tactics of the invading enemy. Keep Win- at Distance Now, when the firsl hints of world diss-cntion are creeping down political alleyways, is the time for women to announce calmly, decisively, purpos- ivcly thul they will not approve war —women of America, and the other lands of the world.

It's very technical and compli ire in our harbors. paipph- cnnTKins . True, when war conies and hearths ire threatened, it is ihe duty of every nan, and womnn. too. to fight val'- antly for defense of thai which is acred. But when war is yet afar off t is just as much our duty lo keep t forever at a distance. \VlmU-s:ale )n> siiity Unjustified If :i madman in a neighborhood won! round inciting the people on his I reel to hammer on each other's doors, lake what they could nf booty and kill in the getting, if ne-ed be. tli-J man would be locked up. Why then, can a premier of a great people, mak catccl. But bread prices are likely to be a political issue and certainly they're causing plenty of excitemen here at the moment, so perhaps you'c better know the focls. The national average price per pound of bread was 6.4 cents in early 1933. It had increased to 8.3 cents by July, 1934, and remained at about that figure until the current boosts of one to two cents a lonf. The original increase was considered more than enough to cover the half cent in processing taxes, the higrer costs of ingredients, and still leave three-quarters of a cent for added labor costs and argcr profits. Thus Wallace tries to laugh off the claim that the latest increase is due ,o that favorite goat of food-makers, Ihe proctssing tax. But he has to idmil that the cost of ingredients— sugar, malt, shortening and iried milk—has advanced in the last iycar. So he says that no more than I a maximum of half a cenl increase is 'justified and that a general one cent ' increase means $60,000,000 or more of added profit for bakers. It May Be Less What Wallace doesn't know is just huw much less than half a cent of in- crciist is justified by higher costs. His figures, showing that the cost of flour in a pound of bread is 35-1000ths of a cent higher and shortening 13-100lhs of a cent up. are computed on an old base with the assumption that bakers j'till use the same proportion of high- grade hard wheat flour as in other years and the same amount and quality of shortening. Over in Baltimore the most txpen- sive kind of bread flour rose 51.20 i barrel between January and October. But the cheapest type of brood flour wtiit up only 10 cents a barrel. (A barrel makes 300 pounds of bread.' The Wallace estimates were based on Sir Samuel Hoare (Continued from page one) Italy could spare none of these reinforcements from Libya for the present; that native unrest was threalen- ing the colony's internal order. Italian forces went farther into Ethiopia from the south Monday, as Mussolini opened public subscription for a huge war conversion loan. Bankers estimated about 9,000,000 lire would be obtained if all holders of three and one-half per cent bonds exchange them for the new five per cent issue. (The lira is worth about eight cents.) Up From Somaljland ASMARA, Eritrea—(/P)—Italian officials announced Monday that the Fascist Southern army in Ethiopia was pushing northward in an attempt to- capture Gorrahei, in Ogaden province. " Present plans are for the Southern army to capture Gorrahei. Italian sources said the Fascists had seized he fortress of Dagnerrei in that area Friday, strengthening their position. Under Gen. Rudolfo Graziani, it was said, the Southern army has advanced 10 miles beyond its original line and s farther inlo Ethiopia than theNorth- rn army.

Frankly, these famous warblers have presented qujte ja problem to their studio bosses. Although they are in great demand right now, producers have been burning considerable 'mid- ngiht oil trying to figure out what to do with the songsters..after the supplj of popular operatic arias is exhausted And that is not far off. A short time ago it was predictec that the solution to this problem woulc be found in original operas -written especially for the screen. Preparations now are being rushed -to try such attack with "Give Us This Night," \yhich will go before the cameras soon, with Gladys Swarthout and Jan Kiepura in the top spots. Erich Wolfgang Korngold, noted European composer, is in Hollywood collaborating with Oscar Hammerstein II on operatic numbers for this picture. Korngold is writing the music, Hammerstein the words. Two of the completed compositions, "Softly Through the Heart of Night" and "Was There Ever a Voice," both reflecting the Italian background of the picture, show every promise of being smash hits. But whether the public will respond as enthusiastically to new numbers as it has to familiar arias is something nobody can foretell. If it doesn't the screen lives of noted operatic stars will be short indeed. If it does, the singers should enjoy movie popularity as long as men can be found to compose operatic numbers for them.
