Healthy Edge By MILTON BRONNEtt NEA Service Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON—When war blazed in the Pacific, most Americans immediately wondered: "Just how strong is the Japanese navy?" With the United States navy starting in to pip off the Makido's ships, the question happily becomes "How many do they have left?" Accurate estimate of the strength of the Nipponese fleet is difficult because of the smoke screen of secrecy the Japs have thrown around their activities ever since they sorted an all-out naval building pro-ram five years ago. Occidentals who sought the facts met with a figurative "S-s-so sorry, no information, please." For the past few years there have been rumors that they were building, or had already built, from four to eight super-battleships. These vessels were described as being great 45,000-ton ships carrying gigantic 20- inch guns. However, despite the rumors and Japan's secrecy, United Ttates ar.d British naval men have expressed the confident view that the' Japs actually have only been turning out 35,- 000-lon warships the same as most of the new battleships being launched in this country. Japan's Five-Year Expansion Nevertheless, because of German collaboration with Japan, naval experts here have expressed the view that Japan's new capital ships may be equipped with some of the secrets of Germany's powerful but ill-fated 'Bismark, whose fight with heavy units of the British fleet in the North Atlantic made naval history. The fact remains that Japan left the naval conference with the United States and Great Britain in 1936 to embark on her secret five-year building program because she was dissatisfied with the demand that she could build onl ythree capital ships for each five launched by this country and Britain. During this five-year period, in addition to building new ships, Japan modernized her old battleships by installing oil burners, new boilers and engines, increasing the elevation of turret guns to give greater range, and adding new anti-aircraft and under- waer defenses. The best estimates of Japan's growing sea strength were given last February when U. S. Congressional committees were considering appropriations for new warships to be built in this country. U. S. naval officers declared that to the best of their knowl- j edge Japan had: 1 Ten battleships with eight more under construction; eight aircraft carriers and two more under construction; 46 cruisers and ten more being built; 125 destroyers with 11 more on the ways, and 71 submarines, with seven new ones being constructed. In comparison, at the same time, the following picture was given of the Your Pet Can Take If Also AH They Need Is a Fair Chance to Prove It ';; •NEW YORK-If the bombs comei your pets can take it. ^ All they need is a chance, says the', y American Society for the precenilori "A* of Cruelty to Animals. i ' * The possibilities of air raids directed *' the attention of the 'SPCA to the care /, and relief of uncounted millions of the nation's cats and dogs. ' ,,' Taking a page from the British note- /, book, the society cites Rule No, 1: . l , .„ Don't have your pets destroyed*];,^ hastily in the belief that they cart ^| be spared the miseries of bombing. r "*jr$ This occurred in England during the* i^ early days of the war, says Sydney '^ H. Coleman, SPCA vice president, but iow: I "Recent word from England indicates that there are about three mil-- 4 lion dogs in that country—not m less than in peace time. Pets of kinds are found to have a high value <• in maintaining morale during ihe' stress of war." r ,t Here are the SPCA's wartime lion rules for handling pets, as veloped by the American Red Star An-' imal Relief: *\.,^ "License tags should be worn at att'Tj times fo ridentification purposes. Dbgs^j should be exercised on leash and near} ^ home. They should never be turne loose on the street and should rttoi, ,, decidedly be kept within doors during^ a raid. ' £$L "Dogs and cats should be accustomed fj to being left in the same room every*! night and provided with fresh water.. Large dogs should be tied by strong?* chains to adequate rings placed tafj,- enough apart so dogs cannot harmfr. each other. Small dogs and cats should*' '' be placed in carriers. •',""*' 'In case dogs or cats show great fear', sodium bromide may be used. The\ dose varies from two grains for small! dogs ot 15 grains for large breeds liker the Great Dane. Cats equire one to t two grains of bromide Aspirin may be substituted. ^ "Learn the location of your nearest veterinarian to whom the animal may, be taken in case of injury " j In New York City, where 317,740 v dogs were licensed in 1940, some apartment dwellers have appointed air raid ( , wardens for pets, and have engaged' a room on a "safe" floor to which'if? all of the animals may be taken. ; s:"rn wlirn Atwtiran »i«l British plnnr j futjHjl u-ouM tx- three *>r four t'mr& ; 1H»1 nf Oir entire Axt» txiwrrt Al- »rj»ity «.ti>n«< arc being built cbttcr ; am! f«M«r than in World War I Hut Mill i-nily a beginning li^s t>ei>n m»ii<- Anna! rxprnrtilum (or aims j In 1942, we muj.1 srx-nri much more. i in J9I3, iK'ihnP" <>» much ft* 160.000.- 00().(Ktft Toilny. we arc expending a- j txnit 20 per ri'ht of our nnlionnl rf- j (dit on «rm». nmi to match the in( irn.Mlv of the efforts of our enemies, j mmt increase it to 50, perhaps 00 jwr- j crnl. i With our superior potential, is such an effort nccrssiiry?

'Hie basic facts are these; Our national income is now running, says the Department of Commerce, at the rate of $95,000,000,000 annually, more than 14 percent above 1929. It has been rising rapidly, has more than doubled since 1933. The rate of increase may be curtailed, as more rigid price controls are applied—essential in a period of such activity to keep costs from going out of sight—and as civil- inn industry is curtailed.

Unemployment, variously estimated, wns put by one authority al 7,000.000, a year ago, and some industrial experts place the number of employables without jobs now »s low as 2,000.000. Many millions will be needed for armed forces and for iirms plants. This means drawing workers away from peacetime pursuits, working harder and longer. Throughout the year, financial circles were fully alive to cost factors. Corporate profits ran on the average of somewhat above 1940, but with steep boosts in material costs, wage rates and taxes, mndc nowhere near the gain that production did. Trading in the stock exchange fell off to the lowest volume in many years, and prices drifted downward throughout the earlier months, getting close to the lows reached on the fall of France a year before. An early summer recovery, aided by the strong fight against the Nazis made by Russia, brought prices back close to the January peaks, but they headed down ward again, as the Russians gave way, and the clouds grew darker in the Far East. American entrance into a moderatel ysharp dip, to a little under the lows made on the full of France. Bontls, however, were higher most of the year, and trading increased. They wore not so vulnerable to the threat of crushing taxes, since bond interest is deducted before taxable profits are computed. Keeping the interest rate low became an increasingly vital government objective, as prospects for arms spending readied astronomical levels. If the yield on government bonds is permitted to go no higher than 2M- per cent—and Britain has kepi its borrowign rate there—the annual interest on a national debt of ?150,000,000,000 would be $3,750,000,000, apparently not an intolerable burden, ii national income rises to $100,000,000,000 annually or higher, and is kept high As much of the arms cost as feasible will undoubtedly be met by taxes but at present, only about onc-lhirc of the outlay is being so met, and as expenditures rapidly increase, taxes must go up severely to maintain even the present proportion.

The vehicle, produced on a lavish scale, is backgrounded against Uncle Sam's efforts to annually train an additional 50,000 officers for the Army Air Corps. Merging riotous hiliarity with romance, songs and aviation thrills, the offering boasts of a big and bril- liiVit supporting cast headed by Charles Lang and the Six Hits. Made with the full co-operation of the War Department, most of the scenes were photographed at Cal-Aero Academy, Ontario, Calif., one o£ thirty privately-operated flying schools now under contract to the government. "Grease Monkey" Rules Abbott and Costello portray air school "grease monkeys," while Misses Bruce and Raye are seen as singing hostesses in a USO clubhouse. Gargan characterizes a civilian flying instructor, while Forun appears as a circus stunt flyer who enrolls in the school order to be near Miss Bruce. Charles Lang portrays Miss Bruce's brother a flying cadet. William Davidson is operator of the amusement park that figures in the opening scenes. Four hundred screen extras and other players are included in the roster of "Keep 'Em Flying," which is further augmented by 4GO 'real' life cadets, who appear in the school sequences. More than 175 Army airplanes, plus six private stunt ships, were used during the filming of the exciting aerial scenes.

GILROY, D. D. Editor of Advance This lesson on the Christian's hope is particularly appropriate for the last Sunday of the dying year. Our divisions of time are artificial and arbitrary, as one realizes when he remembers that years have been reckoned from different events and in different ways. But the reckoning of years from the birth of Christ has become established, apart from belief in the Savior's coming, and in parts of the world where the significance of Christianity has not yet been established. Inevitbaly, there is a psychological and an emotional response to the changes of time. The darkening shadows of each evening remind us of this change, and when we speak of day as "dying in (lie West" there is a symbolism of the passing day of our own lives. All this is all the more strongly emphasized with the dying of the year. People meet these changing tides of life and the oncoming of death with varying attitudes. Not all are inspired with the hope of immortality or any strong belief concerning it. Only recently I read the memoirs of a brilliant English woman, in which she frankly expressed the belief, and the hope, that there would be nothing more for her when deat had come. Tis life was enough. One's reflection is tat a person's I earthly life must have been cither Don Raye and Gene de Paul, Uni- exceedingly happy, or exceedingly un- vcrsal's ace songwriting team, eleffed happy and miserable, to induce such several new tunes, all of them poten-j an attitude. If exceedingly happy, the Atlantic and the Pacific in a ratio j military and naval planes is 2500, and that has been kept secret. that this itself is dependent upon the The strength of the present Jap- ----- anese naval air arm is still another mystery. Some time ago it was believed Japan's air forces were not comparable to those of any of the other big powers. But it is believed that the Germans sent some of their own best machines and technicians to Japan. It was probably the navy planes which made the first swoop upon Ha- there might be the fear of something worse ahead. If exceedingly unhappy, there might be the wish that it might all be over. But the testimony of mankind would seem to be that the hope of survival after death is a normal one and one that certainly has strongly influenced the great mass of the human race. To the Christian, however, immortality is something more than just a matter of survival. It has to do with the quality of the life. What Jesus offers us is not just life after death; on the contrary, what He offers is eternal life, a life of the sort that begins now and that continues because of its quality. One can hardly conceive of a person who has found this eternal life wishing it to end, or complacently accepting the idea that it would end. It is this immortal life that death cannot destroy, which Jesus stressed in the words to His disciples as recorded by John. The words in a sense are figurative. We do not picture material mansions, but we do realize that Jesus spoke of a very real fellowship, a home of the soul, and a home for the souls of the faithful, where those who shared Christ's life and purpose would live with Him. It is something of this same picture that we have in the passage from Revelation—a homland of the faithful enriched and flourishing because of the river of the water of life, with the trees along its bank bearing fruit and with its leaves for the healing of the nation. Here the language is definitely figurative, but the experience that it brings to the vision of the faithful is very real. It is the contrast with the earthly life pf perfect life in a perfect environment, where all that sin and disobedience have brought into the world that we know, is swept away, where light has conquered darkness, and where the love of God has triumphed over all that is evil and all that is imperfect. Japs' having the raw materials necessary. Japan has plenty of troops available ' * for military occupation of any islands v or mainland it may for the time being ~* conquer. Its peacetime army is only . 250,000, but the army has been up to V<-"i fairly full war strength ever since Japan began aggression upon China. Every man between the ages of 17 and 40 is subject to military duty and it has been stated that Japan could put 6,000,000 men into the field, provided it can furnish the equipment, Two million men are .supposed to be engaged in the Chinese war.
