Flymi, noted author-economist. By JOHN T. FLYNN (Written for NBA Service) NEW YORK - Europe has jusl started on what is about the most expensive form of activity man can find—war. We have all known for some time that Europe is pretty close to being busted—at least some of her important countries are that way. All of these countries owe more than they can pay. All of those countries which fought in 1014 had to repudiate the debts of that war, one way or another. Now they are embarked on another war. And the puzzling question to the man in the street is: 'What are they going to use for money?" Germany has given a partial answer to that in the last few days. She lias increased the income taxes on even (lie lowest brackets to 50 per, cent. Remember, in the United States the income tax on incomes up to 54000 is 1 per cent. In Germany it is 50 per cent since the war started. What it will be presently I do not yet, know. How would you like to hand over half of your wages to the government? Two Financial Roads to War There are only two ways to pay the costs of war. One is with taxes. The other is with borowed money. At the present time Europe has raised taxes so high to keep going her efforts against collapse during the depression and (o support her war industries, that it is literally impossible to get much more in the way of taxes. We may be sure, therefore, that Europe will begin at once to borrow money. England, in fact, has already authorized a loan of 2 500,000,000 pound's which is ten billion dollars—a tidy sum for a beginning. . How will European countircs borrow? There are several ways to do :his. One is to borrow from the people—sell them liberty bonds or 'save democracy" bonds. The other is to borrow from the banks. The effect in each case is quite different. How Ilir Prnplc I'ii.v for IV.-ir There are two ways lo borrow from (lie people. One is to ask them to buy bonds voluntarily, or for that matter involuntarily, as Mussolini did Iwo years ago when hc forced everybody to buy bonds up lo ten per cent of their capital holdings. The other way is to sei/o their external investments. Englishmen. Germans, Frenchmen all own large amount of stocks and bonds of other countries and of industries in other countries. Suppose an Englishman owns a share of U. S. Steel stock. The government can order him to turn that stock over to the Treasury. In return it will give him an English bond for the value of his stock. When that is clone Ihe government owns n share of U. S. Steel stock and the Englishman owns an English bond, which means be has loaned the Government that, much money The government now has a .share of stock in an American corporation It can send that share to New York and sell it in the Stock Exchange for the current price and use that money to buy things it needs in the United States. England has about .<i7,0(MUlOO.(i(W of such securities in various countries. I do not have at hand the holdings of Germany. France. But Germany- has already taken over the external investments of her people and England has already issued a decree making a start at doing the same thing. "Bank Money" Is Economic Menace The other way to borrow is from Ihe banks. This is the dangerous thing. 'Ibis is the thing that gut us into Fear Submarine Bases South, Central America LONDON, Eng.—(/P)—The ministry of information announced Wednesday night the British government has "reason to believe the enemy may attempt to establish submarine and air bases on the coasts of the South and Central American countries." As a result, it said: "ThcD government has instructed His Majesty's representatives in those countries to invite the governments to which they are accredited to take all steps which may be necessary to prevent any breaches of their neutrality." There was no amblification of the communique. Hope Man Held On Narcotic Charges Ode us Thomason, 37, Held at Texarkana on Federal Offense Odeus Thomason, 37-year-old Hope man, was held in a Texarkana jail Wednesday in Lieu of ?2,5000 bond after he was charged in a preliminary hearing Tuesday before United States Commissioner Lowell D. Gibbons with violating federal narcotic law. Thomason was arrested in Hope by J. E. Killwough, federal narcotic inspector, when he allegedly sold the government agent 50 morphine tablets. H was .said that Killough offered S20 for the. tablets and then seized an additional 100 grains of morphine from Thomason. At the preliminary, Thomason pleaded not guilty. The trial date was set for September 28 by Commissioner Gibbons. The case is expected to be prosecuted by Duke Frederick, assistant United States district attorney.

Although the proclamation made no mention of. neutrality, the president stated informally he would seek repeal of the arms embargo clause. He sent telegrams to a croup of Democratic and Republican leaders, both in the senate and house, asking that they meet with him September 20 in an informal conference. Pcrshing, on Arms WASHINGTON -</P)- General John J.

Demo Women's Day Slated for Saturday Mrs. Roosevelt Will Deliver Speech Over Nation's Networks The high-light of 'Democratic Women's Day" will be a broadcast from Washington on the evening of September 16th, when both Mrs. Roosevelt will bring messages to democrats, according to an announcement by Mrs. J. G. MartindaJe, vice-chairman of the Hempstead County Democratic Central Committee. "This is part of a nation-wide effort of the women's division of the Democratic National Committee in Washington, D. C., to raise money to make the wheels of feminine party machinery go 'round," Mrs. Martindale said, "and Hempstead county has been assigned a quota based on fifty cents a precinct. The "idea-woman" for the event was Mrs. Roosevelt, who wrote i'n her daily column last May that she hoped a "Democratic Women's Day," would be held to raise funds for political work—and the work of the women's division of the democratic national commtitee and the woman's national democratic club." Each state has been assigned a quota by the woman's division, and the goal is the raising of the quota tn every county in the ocuntry. Miss Hattie Ann Field, has been selected as the finance cliairman of the occasion for Hempstead county. All democrats are urgently invited to "tune in" on this featured broadcast over all net works, on Saturday evening.
