Japan has everything to lose should the white powers intervene. No one believes Japanese air pilots deliberately bombed an American warship—the official statement that the fliers themselves thought the gunboat Panay was a Chinese vessel is credible. The Panay was built at Shanghai, and there may be dozens of sister ships actually flying the Chinese flag.

All Ihis seems incredible lo civilian populations 10,000 miles away, in America and England- hut so is it incredible, when you stop to think of it, that America has a warship stationed far up a battle-ridden river in China 10,000 miles away. There's probably reason enough for neutral warship* being in the trouble /.one, but il only goes lo show you that in this mechanical age, when trade is world-wide, and battleships follow our trade, and warring countries fight each other with bombs dropped from Ihe air, il is easier lo gel into a war than to stay out of one. And' neutrals never have hunt; around any man's war without some of them getting hurl. * * * Emil Ludwing. greatest living writer of biographies, is publishing a book about President Roosevelt serially in Liberty magazine. Roosevelt, says Ludwig, gets the pattern of his philosophy toward industry from the late President Wilson. "With the exception of Jefferson," the German biographer writes, "Ihere is nol a single presi- i dent he (FDR) has studied wilh Ihe same devotion and profit as Wilson. From Ihe outset he perceived in Wilson the prophet who—as he expressed it—"saw in the power of capital the threat to the individual." According to the magazine, Ludwig declares Wilson saw in the accumulation of money and fnc- eenlury" who, unless controlled by the state, would enslave the people. So much for Liberty nnd Ludwig. Tlie German biographer's premise is fairly accurate. Roosevelt HAS borrowed much from Wilson in his attitude toward capital and industry. In this day we are apt to belittle Wilson's political courage in fixing upon capita-1 the federal income tax legislation thai is now considered commonplace. And Ihe complexities of modern mass production justify today's president in going further with regulation lhal the man who was president before mass production 'had arrived. But no man and no nation founded as America was founded is ever going to forget that one who seeks escape from industrial slavery by going whole-heartedly into federal management is selling himself inlo lhal very political slavery from which his forefathers fled. A German, an Italian, or a Russian may exist simply for the "good" he can do the government —but over here an American exists for the "good" he can do himself. Thai's why we're here—all of us.

Sloan General Motors Head Contributes 10 Millions to Foundation NEW YORK.-(flV-Alfred P. Sloan Jr., chairman of the General Motors Corporation, announced Sunday the donation of $10,000,000 in securities as an endowment to an economics research foundation bearing his name. The foundation was organized in the summer of 1936, but labor troubles in the automotive industry delayed plans for its operation and financing. Sloan said more lhan 10,000 shares of General Motors common stock were involved, but. the transaction was entirely a personal mailer, having "nothing whatsoever to do with General Motors Corporation or my .pffieial relationship with same." "Due to government, regulations," he said, "changes in by General Motors holding are a matter of public record on account of my official relationship with that organization, hence it is important, especially in the period of uncertainly now existing, that no prejudice should develop as to the reasons for the action that 1 am taking."
