Mobilization, in 1914 and in 1939 The general mobilization that is taking place in Europe today is another evidence of how the world has changed since 1914. In those primitive days, general mobilizition was everywhere considerec the next thing to war itself. It was only after the Russians inobili?.ed tha war "became inevitable. Germany then insisted btat it must mobilize to protect ;itself, and the others followed. Everybody conceded that once the great armies had actually been set in motion it was too late to avert war. Today, or someitme before the end of the month. Europe will have eight million men standing to arms. They call it maneuvers, but it is nothing less than general mobilization. Yet war is by no means certain. It may happen, and there are private tips circulating to the effect that the end of August will also see the beginning of the end of civilization, that is. war. But it is by no means certain. We are in the midst of a period of "white war," a new.technique whereby nations try to wear down the nerves of one another by constant and continuing threat of war. These tactics are especially effective in these days when war, the very day it begins, will show its ugly face at every mar.'s front door. Nobody wants war—that is. the German people don't want it, the French people don't want it. the British, Polish, Italian and Russian peoples don't want it. But the aim of the leaders apparently is to make tlie threat so ever- present, so menacingly close, as to wear down the nerves and endurance of the opposing side so that it will at last yield without a fight. It worked a year ago. Today it is by no means certain. The Poles have shown no sign of nerves as yet. The "Allies' are far better prepared than a year ago. Their nerves, too. are less shaken. Europe is far less impressed by the mobilizing of 2,5000,000 Germans today than it was when a thin trickle of troops passed over to occupy the Rhineland a few years ago. More and more clearly the game is revealed as a naked show of power for the most grossly material ends. Nobody even talks of "right" and "wrong" in Europe any more. It is simply, "I am strongest! You must yield!" "No, I 3m strongest! 1 will not yield an inch. Should all this reckless and child-like playing with fire result in a spreading conflagration this autumn, the United States will have need of every bit of coolness and sanity it can muster. It is not too early to begin now to ask, "Must we take a hand in a game whose rules we did not make, whose cards we did not deal, and in which we cannot possibly win?"

When Inrge nmounts of snlt solution made up to resemble the concentration of suit in the blood nre tnken into the body, the effects of heat stroke and hent cramps disappear. If the blood of the p n vson subjected to this cin- ditioti is examined, it is found to contain n lessened amount of salt. For this reason, various industries are providing salt tablets to the workers. In some places the drmkinU water is slightly salted, thus making certain thnt the workers will get the salt whether or not they remember to luke the tablets. . In Circal Britain, miners were supplied with salted beer and told that the food tnken daily should he salted liberally. Golf clubs fortify their 'members with salt toblcls in similiar fashion to insure players against heat attacks on the greens.

WASH TUBES Sounds Reasonable, Easy Franklin Has His Own 'Famous American' Series someone — not a philatelist — nominated Benjamin Franklin for the U. S. "Famous Americans" series to be issued next year, Postmaster General James A. Farley retaliated with a few lads concerning the tribute ttumps have paid to the father of the American postal system, y With the possible exception of Washington, Franklin has- appeared on more special postage stamps than any other individual in the nation's history. When thP first U. S. adhesive postage stamps were issued ui 1847, Franklin appeared on the 5-cent value, Washington on the 10-cent. Since that tirne, Franklin has been honored by 33 additional stamps, has been continuously on current postage series up to and including the '/:•cent value of the 1938 presidential series. Franklin appeared three times in the series of 1&G1; was on each of ninf«departrnental stamps in 1873; [appealed five times in series of 1912; four in 1914 and twice in 1916. Single Franklin stamps were issued in 1847, 1851, 1869, 1870, 1890, 1894, 1902, 1908, 1919, 1922, 1938.
