Against War Babies: Inflation, Devaluation Nations Plunge in War Debts, Then Cheapen Currency It's Old, Old Story of "Borrow and Then Repudiate" A WAR - RICH U. S. A. Before 1914 War We Owed Europe—But Now Europe Owes Us The last of three exclusive articles—by a distinguished journalist- ocoiiomlst—on "The War and Your 1'ocketbook." By JOHN T. FLYNN (Written for NEA Service) NEW YORK — The effect of the •wSr'trtion the the world's currencies is certain in time lo alter the size and shape of the average American's pockelbook. There is nothing older than the practice of government^ going to war, borrowing money to Tight the war, getting themselves loaded with debt and then repudiating the debt by the simple process of devaluation. The American accustomed as he is to the debts of our depression era, can have no conception of the staggering burden under which every FKtropca'n government labors even before th cwar gets well under way. Yet as the -war starts new plans for now and even more fantastic debts arc Arranged. Repercussions Here are Danger The moment the war ends, however, every country will find these debts completely bgyond its power to manage. One of two things will happen. Either a runaway inflation will .set in which will be followed by a swift devaluation,, or if the governments manage to check the inflation, the devaluation will be forced, if possible even more swiftly. These devaluations cannot very well take place without some measure of devaluation here. Certainly there will be fears of devaluation, rumors about it, discussions of it. And this will have, a bad effect on our ccon- mic condition. Debtor Gels Break—Not So, , Creditor The effect of this will be rjuit.o mixed on Ihc population. It. will also injure Die working man at first, for his wages will be slower in adjusting themselves to the new levels than prices. The very fear of devaluation will lend to discourage investment by lenders, although it ought to encourage investment, such things as houses and apartments and buildings by those who have the cash to make construction or can borrow it. But tlie government, forscoing this sort of thing, must take whatever measures arc possible to provide the necessary cushion and to protect the economic system abroad. No Tlnif. For Crackpots 11 is foolish to suppose we can isolate ourselves from these foreign distribanccs. But we certainly can mitigate the shock to an appreciable extent.

He warned the Western powers that Germany never would "capitulate", and was prepared for as much as a seven- years war if necessary. In an hour and 14-minute speech, one of his best oratorical efforts, the fuehre dwelt at length on what he called his efforts "to bring about, friendly relations" with Britain and France. ' He spoke as the climax of his first visit to Danzig since he gathered the former Free City into th* Reich.. He , was given a Irenzied,welcome by the populace. He declared Germany and Russia, Europe's "two greatest nations instead of being trouble-makers, are going to organize peace in the East." "In the West and South," he asserted "Germany has made important concessions, hoping to bring about definite peace in Europe. "We believe we would have been successful had downright war agita^ tors not always upset our efforts." He said Soviet Russia concurred in his promise that the Poland of post- Versailles days would not rise again. He said Germany and Russia are the only ones entitled to "re-establish law and order in Eastern Europe." Referring to British assertions that the war might last three years, Hitler said it would "be dependant upon us if the war lasts that long," "If it should last three years the word 'capitulation' should not stand at its end, nrr -stand at the end of the fourth, fifth, sixth or seventh year, for they (the Allies) are not facing the Germany of Bethmann- Hollweg (1914 German chancellor but the Germany of Friedrician time (meaning Frederick the Great)," Allies Are Braced PARIS, France .
