"no greater mistake could be made" than the assumption that the Russian-German pact would prevent the British from aiding Poland if the latter were attacked. He added "it would be a dangerous illusion lo think that, if war once starts, it will come to an early end even if .success on any one of several fronts in which it would be engaged should have, been secured." Hitler, the following day, wrote, "An incalculable war between Ger- bloodier He said war "could at best bring some profit lo Germany but none at all to England.' The London Provosion Exchange announced that by order of the Food Defense Committee prices of all food commodities would be fixed at "stand s:till prices until further notice. many and England would be than that of 1914 to 1918." In 1855, Congress appropriated ?30,for importing camels into the Uuit- ed States, to bo used in the desedt areas of the southwest.

This plan provides for the most drastic regimentation of American life yet heard of. It would empower the president (through the War Resources Board, presumably) to con- irol labor, industry, finance, and agriculture. Tlie government could fix all prices; could "tell any individual or company how much of any given raw material' it might buy: could license all manufacturers, merchants , and public service corporaliins; could regulate the manufacture, transportation, sale and distribution of all articles produced in America; could commandeer any factory or other establishment; could say whether a given issue of securities might be marketed; could conserpit all labir, control completely the supply and distribution of raw materials—could, in short run agriculture, industry, labor business, and finance down lo the smallest and finest detail imaginable. Nor have the preparations stopped there. By the system of "educational orders" recently authorized by Congress, the War Department can now finance a private corporation in the iob of retooling its plant so as to be'ready ti produce certain war essentials—machine guns, for instance. The plant thus retooled fills a small peace-time order for the department; ihe tools then become War Depart- 'ment property—and if war comes, that factory can swing into production on short notice. Some 2Q.OOO industrial plants have been surveyed. The different army and navy departments kniw in just which plants they can obtain the- things they will need in war. If changes in those plants are needed, the changes are all blueprinted. In case of war, both the government and these individual manufacturers know just what will have to be done.

E. church being conducted at Yerger High School proved to be an interesting session Friday. Classes for teachers and students were fully represented Friday when the session got underway at 8 a. m. Some of Ihe high points was Bishop James A. Bray's lecture to his class Dr.IE.Dillard To Speak Here Sunday Tennessee Minister Is To Deliver Sermon At Baptist Church Dr. .1. E. Dillard, Director of Promotion of the Southern Baptist Con- cntinn. Nashville, Tennessee, will he the preacher iit First Baptist Church Sunday morning. A largo attendance is expected. In order to allow Dr. Dillard more time to speak, the Sunday School will meet fit 9:,')0 ;md pre.-ichirig service will open at 10:.'iO. Dr. Dilhird is one of the most effective preachers of his day. His ministry has been unusually successful where- over he has gone. In view of the great demand for his services. Hope is unusually fortunate in having him .'peak here Sunday. The "Who's Who Of America" .says in part concerning Dr. Dillard: "Ji.'iives Edgar Dillard, son of Dr. and Mrs. E. B. Dillard was born Danville. Va., June 3. 1879. He holds degrees from a number of educational institutions. "He was five year.s president, Clarksburg College. Clarksburg, Missouri, and has served as pastor in Kansas City, St. Louis. St. Joseph, Mo., and for 18 years pastor, Southside Church, Birmingham Ala. He has written many articles, tracts, and books on religious and educational subjects. He became Director of Promotion of the Southern Baptist Convention August 1930." Gabby Hartnett Sets New Record National League Catching Record Is Broken By Cub Manager BROOKLYN —(/Pi— Gabby Hartnett caught his 1,722nd game Friday setting a new record for National League catches, and celebrated the occasion with a home run. But all it did was to save his Chiago Cubs for a shutout in the second half of a double-header as they lost .'! to I, after defeating the Didgers C to 2, in the opner. Tlie Cubs had everything they needed in the first contest—eight-hit pitching by Larry French and a 10-hit offensive which included home runs by Hank Leiber and Gus Mancuso. They took the lead in the first inn ing when Bill Nicholson doubled with the bases loaded and were never headed . French, in-winning his fourth straight game and llth of the season, in the second inning of the second also a bad first inning. THE THEATER "FRONTIER MAKSIIAL" TIIBUXING SAGA OF TURBULENT ACTION The wickedest, wildest town in that dangerous West of old, Tombstone, Arizona, where the man fastest on the draw lived the longest is the setting o! "Frontier Marshal," which opens Sunday nt the Rialto Theatre. Randolph Scott and Nancy Kelly head the great cast of this thrilling 20th Century-Fox production, which also prominently features Cesar Romero, Birmie Barnes and John Car- radinc. Scott has his most colorful role to date as Wyatt Earp, the gun-fighting marshal who brought in the law at the end of his six-gun and stayed alive because no one ever beat him to the draw. The lovely Nancy Kelly is east as the beautiful, brave, unflinching girl who followed Doc Holliday, the man she loved, to this God- foresaken borderland town to save him. Romero is cast as Holliday, elegant gambler and deadly killer, who, for reasons of his own, had dropped his useful life btek East to come to Tombstone, a bitter, desperate man, waiting for death. Binnic Barnes has a made-to-order role as Jerry, volcanic dance hall queen, who is madly in love with Holliday and who violently resents the intrusion of the home-town sweetheart for whom Holliday feels the fort of love Jerry will never know. Carradine is cast as Ben Carter, the villainous proprietor of the Palace of pleasure, where a shooting was always in order. The intense rivalry between the Iwo women from vastly different worlds helps motivate the exciting screen play which Sam Hellman based on a book by Stuart N. Lake. Allan Dwan directed "Frontier Marshal," while Sol M. Wuvtzel. filled the executive producer's post. 'Shuttle' Bombing: Threat to Germany . "Shuttle service" by bombing planes, speeding back »nd forth across Germany bombing military objectives on the way, is the newest tactical maneuver credited to the Franco-British staffs as a means of aiding Poland in event of war. Above, the latest in British bombers—Blackburn Skua diver, with speed of more than 200 miles per hour, range of 3200 miles. Below, how the system would work.

C Public opinion has not yet crystallized in this country. It is definitely and overwhelmingly against Hitler, and it has a fatalistic hunch that some tremendous catastrophe is on the way. But it has not yet reached that definite, fixed stage which compels Washington to follow the lead of the and audit of university affairs. Tickets for football games and other sports events were loosely recorded and loans made to athletes never were repaid, it was said in the report, compiled by the state supervisor of public funds. 'As a rule," the report stated, 'loans to athletes are not repaid unless paid Harnetfs homer put the Cubs ahead I by refunds from the athletic fund. 1 in the scond inning of the second Outstanding L.

The supervisor's officia statement said some loans extended a i'ac back as 1935. The official report said athletic re cepits could not be reconciled with tic ket sales because ticket records wer< incomplete. J. Fair Hardin, special assistant at torney general assiting a Grand Jur here in probing university affairs has said that football tickets give complimentary to state officials anr others averaged more than 1,000 Kame. Hardin termed the practice "species of petty graft" and urge' it be stopped. The practice of government sponsor ed public works was known in ancien times.

This, at any rate, is the way the picture looks to this correspondent after a fornight's swing through the east and middle west. War Grabs Public Interest Any Washington correspondent on tour is bombarded by questions where- ever he stops. Usually people ask about the "inside" of politics—who's going to be elected how the President stands with Congress, and so on. There are as many questions now as over—but practically all of them folhv this line: Is there going to be a war in Europe? If there is, is the United States going to get into it? From cinversations with scores o people who have thrown those quest ions at me, I very definitely ge the feeling that the American peopl are still somewhat uncertain abou what ought to be done. They want to stay out of war, o course, but they aren't quite sure wha is the best way to do it, and they have an uneasy feeling that maybe it won be possible. Admittedly, this trip lias coverec only a part of the country; admittedly it has covered thai area where concern with European affairs is apt to he greatest. Sentiment in othe regions may be quite different. But. it the conversations I have had rejresent any sort of sample of public opinion generally, then the great struggle which was left unfinished at the last session of Congress—the struggle between the administration, With its jielp-the-democracies-by- steps-short-of-war probram, and the solationists—still remains to be fought out. The people have not yet lined up slodily behind either group. Which, of course, means that a se- sion of Congress called to consider low this country should behave in the ace of a general war in Europe would lot be an instrument t register a back- lome opinion already formed, but voulcl be a body whose primary task vas to help the cnuorty make up its nind. Events Confirm Roosevelt's Preilicitiiii If that is true, then the administra- ion would enter such a session with ne big asset and one big liability. O the one hand, it has been establish- d that the President knew pretty much what he was talking about when he said that dire things were about to happen in Europe. Such an isolationist as Senator Borah who said that his sources of information were as good as the State's Department's an dthut they did not reveal much danger of war. would be left looking somewhat peculiar. If the President cared (o say "I told you so." he could do so. On the other hand, the h-olniionists would have a powerful new argument. The administration baiod much of its case for relaxation of the neutrality laws on the plea that :;uch ju.iion would serving advance warning that American supplies and munitions would be available to the democracies if trouble did start. With war already under wa/. the isolationists could point out that the argument no longer is valid, and could concentrate on the change that to lend such aid now would only increase the chance that the United States might get involved in the war itself. IN NEW YORK NEW YORK—Eating in one of the several hundred New York cafeterias is apt to be rather depressing at times for there's no occasion for one to wonder about the coming adventure of food. TVere. right before the eyes is the entire array of desserts: stewec apricots, tapioca pudding, etc. The cafeteria gourmet as he passe: along the line, piles on his tray his entire dinner: soup, salad, meat, potatoes, a vegetable, dessert, coffee—all in one heap. Eeveything of the unexpected—the unpred \cftable—has been eliminatec .when dinning in a cafeteria, That's why it is a minor tragedy that Dick's original Bar and Grill, jus' west of the Brooklyn Bridge, is no closed. Described by Joseph Mitchell so eloquently in the New Yorker a couple of year.s ago, Dick's place was the answer to such over-standarlization in eating. Dick and his bartenders usually acted as if they loathed their customers and the customers Ijked it because it made them feel at home.Most of them were men who were ill at ease by too much solicitude or service. If someone complained about a gristly steak or a baked potato, raw in the middle, Dick would grunt and say, "If you don't like my grub, you don't have to eat here. I'd just as soon I never saw you again." One night the customers stopped Dinging and eating for suddenly mis- iles started flying through the air.

Veteran seamen tell me that New York harbor is the world's easiest to sail into when fogs shroud the water because it's only seventeen miles inland. But, they say, sailing up J<ew York harbor is not sailing into glamorous Shanghai, or langourous Singapore. Yet New York still gets their vote for New York differs from them all. Not only is it the world's biggest pop- ulatoin astride the world's best natural harbor. It is surprising how few of the world's great cities are built upon great harbors. Of the twelve cities of the world having a population of 2,<XXf,000 or more, only four are located upon first-class harbors with deepwater channels. These are Buenos Aires, Leningrad, Shanghai and New York. Their objectons to London, for example, is that though it is a great seaport it is located on the narrow, muddy Thames. And Tokyo, lying at-the head of the head of the.Bay of Tokyo, has water which is too shallow .for any hut the smallest ships.
