Wars Started by Bombing of Ships Panay Incident Recalls the Sinking of Lusitania and Others By PRESTON GROVfcR WASHINGTON—Maybe it is the spirit of Christmas, or Senator Nye's don't-fighl-al-nny-price campaign has token effect, but at any rale the country somehow forgot to shout: "Remember the Pnnny." Twenty years ago we shouted: "Remember the T-iUsilunia." Ships, shell and .soldiers were sent to France. Forty years ago we shouted: "Remember the Maine. Ships, shell and soldier, 1 ; were sent to Cuba. The gunboat Panay, bombed by Japanese planes, sank in the mud soup of the Yangtze. Yet the quantity of war spirit generated could have been curried in a hip flask. In Washington it was treated as n .serious incident. The stale department and the Japanese embasKy and the British embassy played the role of diplomats concerned with a serious incident. ..\J2ul there was not the slightest note of Train in the negotiations. All sides seemed to feel they knew how it was coming out—in a general way—almost before tl.e Yangtze had begun to slit over the sunken Panay, There would be no war. There would be no reprisals. Japan would probably pay indemnities to survivors of the dead, to the wounded crow and passengers, .and to the U. S. treasury for another gunboat. A Brake On Japan Taken in the particular instance, the death of a sailor is a sorrowful rffair. But in the determination of military and diplomatic affairs sailors arc expendible in accomplishing n purpose. The government didn't shove the Panay up into the war zone with the specific purpose of creating an incident. Nevertheless, a.s an incident the bombing that resulted has certain diplomatic values to the United States —and to England. For six years the Japanese military has been riding high, wide and handsome on the international highways, apologizing here and there without giving any protesting power a real handle-hold for a jolting protest. But up bobs the Panay incident. The Japanese arc dead in the wrong, admittedly without an excuse of military necessity. A new and emphatically sour note is injected into their melody of international conquest. The nonchalance evident in Japanese handling of previous lesser incidents was locking in the note of apology for the Panay 1 sinking. Probably it won't stop the Japanese march up the Yangtze',* b'ut it*will give the United Slates and England a new basis for insisting upon a clarification of the real purpose of the conquest Letters to the Editor Some time ago we digested n tabula- lion of the stale department which showed that it cost about 50 cents in overhead and publicity for every dollar of relief and assistance money sent to help various factions in Spain. Two organizations protested that they had much better records than the average, so we present them. The North American Committee to Aid Spanish Democracy spent $34,186 for administration and publicity while sending $53,304 to Spain. However, the organization states it has sent S2(J5,880 in contributions in kind (goods) to Spain. The Medical Bureau to Aid Spanish Democracy, in turn, has spent $24,809 in sending $103,170 to Spain, with an additional $21,249 in kind.

Find n Ransom Note The year closes in the same utter silence regarding the fate of Mrs. Alice McDonnell Parsons, 38. On the morning of June i), she drove her husband from their Long Island home to catch l.he train to New York, He never saw her again. According to the housekeeper, a Mrs. Anna Kupryanova, Mrs. Parsons returned home, and shortly afterward left the house with a slranye couple to show tlifin a huii.se that was for .sale. When Parsons returned home that night and found that his wife had been alj.st.-nt all day, he called police. They found in the back seat of the Parsons car, parked in the driveway, a note demanding $2.5.000 ransom. Hut once ugain the curtain closed down, and whether Mrs. Parsons is dead or alive, anil where, the record of I'j:i7 will not disclose. The "Red Circle" Murders No less smudged and unreadable is the page that tells the story of the "Circle murders." With a small red circle drawn on the forehead of each with the girl's own lipstick, the bodies of Lewis Weiss and Frances Hajek were found in a wood near Queens, N. Y. Both had been shot und stabbed to death. Perhaps it was a rejected suitor of Miss Hajak, police speculated, as the youth had been merely shot twice, while Miss Hajek had not mlv been shot twice, but savagely stabbed seven times with a stiletto or ice-pick. Both victims were of irreproachable character, adding to the mystery. But long-continued investigation dragged out without result. Not even a workable clew was ever found. The book is closing. But its smudged record conceals rather than reveals the solution of these mysteries of 1937. Chinese compose three-fourths of the population of the Japanese owned island of Formosa. Chile's nitrate fields give employ- input in normal limes to about 40 000 men. "Stella Dallas" at Saenger Man Uale and Barbara Stantvyck In "Stella Dallas" — A Samuel Goltltfj-n Production.

The star, who has added her recently divorced husband's name to her own, plays 'Dearest,' Xhc beautiful and r.Jorod >oung mother of Ceddie Errol, the little American boy who becomes Lord Fauntleroy, in this film!" zalion of the world famous Frances Hodgson Burnett story v/hich marks the first indepedent production of David O. Selznick. Freddie, of couse, plays the title role. The familiar story, which Hugh Wai- pole, distinguished novelist, adapted lo the serpen, is laid in the America and England of 1885 and depicts the softening influence of Fauntleroy's devotion upon his irascible old grandfather, the Earl of Dorincourt. When the death of the Earl's third son makes Ceddie hi sheir, the Earl takes the boy into Dorincourt Castle, but refuses to recognize 'nearest,' the penniless American girl whom his son had married against his wishes. However, just when the transformation of the old Earl is complete, his: new-found happiness is ' threatened by the appearance of a woman who claims that her son, an unpleasant brat, is tlie rightful heir. This situation has the effect of bringing the old Earl and 'Dearest' together, and the story ends happily with Coddie's right to the title of "Little Lord Fauntleroy" definitely established. C. Aubrey Smith plays the Earl, Guy Kibbec and Mickey Rooney, are seen as Ceddie's American friends, Mr. Hobbs and Dick, the bootblack, and Henry Stephenson j}lays Havisham, the url's lawyer. Others prominent in the cast are E. E. Clive, Una O'Connor, Jackie Searl, Ivan Simpson, Jessie Ralph and Constance Collier.

Hinman said as much as S180 a year rental was being paid for shacks that could be duplicated for $150. In the long run, the county expects to make money on its new houses. It would have been enormously use- fid to us, and the sooner it is revived under auspices congenial to American labor the better.—George Barnard Shaw, commenting on the Duke of Windsor's canceled tour of America.
