Quality makes by STEINWAY, HADDORFF, WUBLITZEB. Pianos, $75 up. Terms These include hemp, chrome, graphite, mica, tin, and rubber. The Japanese think they can raid this life- 1 line with submarines ami planes and t especially with cruisers. ' But beyond mere raiding, the Japanese, if they take Singapore, or p«r- ] haps sooner, may try a grand slam, They may try to cut off our supplies at the source by invading not only the British but the Dutch East Indies, One reason: They know that our rubber supply will not last a year unless we can miraculously stimulate the growth of our infant synthetic rubber industry. Brazil's rubber will be too little and too late— 200 tons the past month, and just starting. And rubber shortage means creeping paralysis of the automotive industry and transport that are the country's life. Cards stacked against us? Not a bit. We will lose more tricks than some American wishful thinkers and sound- offers would have us believe. We must face that, and take it, toss in all our chips, and fight the harder. Japan's will be early tricks. If our stockpiles of rubber are too low, so are Japan's stockpiles, of more things than rubber. If Japan can hamper our commerce with the East Indies, we, aided by the British and Dutch navies and we hope, the Russian submarines, can strangle hers. We can starve Japan out, ih time. And in time we can learn to fight, and fight better than the Japanese because more intelligently and presently, perhaps, more unitedly — for most Japanese did not want war. They did not have it forced on them by infuriating, treacherous aggression. But, barring Japanese revolt, we cannot fight more bravely than they — theirs is' the fatalistic courage of the timeless East. Yet Japan hopes to defraud time, rush us off our feet. She hopes to throw us back so that we cannot recover before the Germans can come to her aid. Already they are supplying commerce raiderh; there have even been rumors — unconfirmed— that the world's greatest battleship, the Tirpitz, was in the Pacific, More important, the expert advice for the raids that caught us largely flatfooted, came doubtless from the experienced German staff officers who have long permeated every bureau in Tokio. But Japan counts on yet more German help, if freed by a crushing defeat of Russia. And she counts on our realizing 'that, and supplying Russia at cost of our defenses in the Pacific, leaving Japan holding islands from which even if Germany fails, we can oust her only after tremendous time and effort. The Japanese have calculated, all right. But this country, united, can twist their calculations into miscal- Priorities in Homes of U.S. War Furniture Made of Plastics, Glass and Wood Come on in, Mrs. Housewife, and , alvfl 3f) •* ««'*•<•<«'' ««r ";->'* <"> «"« ! ^^ '". ike a look at your new home, styled !

You're goinst to like it, you know, once you get that chip off your shoulder and stop worrying about the absence of aluminum trays in your new refrigerator, or the tragedy of doing without brass doorknobs. Glass, plastic and wood are the materials of your priority-dictated homo. And if you don't think they're more decorative and more efficient than the old-style metal gadgets, you're simply a hopeless reactionary of the musty Victorian vintage. Take the new heat-proof glass cooking utensils, fir instance. They give your kitchen a streamlined modern look, they're easy to clean, and besides they afford you the joy of watching your dinner cook without lifting the lid of the pan. In the new world of priorities, you won'thave to guess what's inside that tin can when you do your marketing. You can see the food you're buying, in lightweight glass jars. Your first glass or plastic electric toaster is going to give you the feel- in of a woman from Mars, pioneering in an exciting new world of science. You're going to like the new lamps of American pottery, transparent plastic, glass and wood. Replacing imported porcelains and old-fashioned brass bases, these new lamp styles have given enthusiastic young American industrial designers a chance to show what they can do—and what they've done is good. Plastic coat-hangers, knife blades, shower curtain hooks, doorknobs and faucets are winning cheer from Mr. and Mrs. General Public. Other home furnishings rapidly disappearing from the modern American scene include metal garden furniture, steel kitchen cabinets and sinks, silk lamp shades, rubber bathtubs for babies, metal electric fixtures and drawer pulls. But for every article removed from the kitchen or the bedroom, the living room or the bathroom by the OPM, a new product is being turned out by American industry, usually superior in utility and design. Whether you like it or not, your home is going to be modernized by OPM. But you'll probably 1'ike it, when you get settled down in the home of tomorrow. out tTttircly.
