Just, now that is of especial interest , both to diplomats, who like to win contests that way, and to military fi, . men, ^vho art- in doubt how England and France can win any other way. Wedged in among reports of skirmishes on the western front and German advances in the east, are brief • items telling how England and France »ro using all their old persuaders on Italy, Spain and Japan, to turn them against their one-limo ally of (he imti- comintern.

England no doubt would offer tlaly an extensive piece of African acreage in return for fighting Gin-many or oven for an .•iMiirnl friendly neutrality. With Italy on the fence as she is, England would not foci safe in sending any .si/cable expedition through the Mediterranean into the Black sea to help Poland through the "back door." The Time lias Come _ Military experts suggest that (he time has come for diplomacy to work relief. .Search as we will, 'wo cannot »• find a solitary soldier who can tell how Fiance or England can break into Germany. An attack on the sea coast would I,,: extremely hazardous and might cost Britain half her navy and still f.iil. The skirmishing along the western front so far means little. The nearer the collapse of Poland the more ^desperate the plight of France and Km-.land to show that they' have the winning band.

International Law Is at Lowest Hugo Grotius' of Switzerland, Father of International Law WASHINGTON - What <|., o .s the President mean when he SUHKCSIS thai (lie U. S. "fall back" un international law in • prefeionce to the "neutrality art" designed for this onmtry alone? The answer would vary, depundinj; upon where you went to gel it. Never- Ihole.ss, there IS a body of mli>rn;j- tional law. Much of it has been accepted for centuries. Much of it is in serious dispute. Just now it is suffering an all-lime low mark of honest observance. Edwin M. Borchard of Columbia iinivw.s-ity, ;i foremost authority, insists however, hat even now inlvrnationa) law is a binding set of m les applied by an dto slates in heir international mlercourbe. International law is a luckless code in on^ rc-spect. H i.s built up exten- .•-ivcly in peace, only to be shattered and (lisri-garded in considerable part in war. Kvon in war, though there is strict adherence to an uxtensife portion of it. For example, prisoners are not slaughtered now, as they once were. Yet a lon^-acrepted rule against making war on defenseless citizens went (ipcrhoarcl in the World war. and was not respected by the Italians in Kthiopia. the Japanese in China, and perhaps by the- Germans in Poland.

Home enforced a code largely of its own making, but gome recog- ni/ed the ol'cler principals. Jnter- nalional law became really importhal when Europe began segregating itself into indcpendendent states. It had i haphazard growth through the middle centuries until a csorlarly Swiss, Hugo Grotitis, wrote a treatise in the ••ufenleenth century that was so sound and so widely accepted .that he has been known cfer since as the father oi international low. Like ih; ancients, he sought to biiEO international law on "natural justice." H was the condition of prisoners and wounded, to afoid imposing j war upon defenseless populations, to I respect the sanctity of embassies, truces md treaties. Neutral commerce had certain rights. Big Nations Write II International law respecting rights of colonization and sea trade had a tremendous growth after the discovery of America. The various treaties that settled Europe's wars always contributed some new law. It has always been a habit, mid still is, for big nations to writ? much of their own international law and iet smaller nations do the best they can. Luring the World war England imposed a type of blockade that was .strictly illegal—until then. Germany praticed a type of sea warfare illegal—until then. Both now are resuming the same practices. Unfortunately, most international law has to do with couduct of nations, during wyr. .Societies and nations have .sought to broaden the law so that matters relating to tarrifs, immigration,trade preferences, struggles lor markets and raw materials, size of armies or navies, and control of backward territories could be adjusted without war. Success has limited. It is still legal to seize land and people by conquest. We tried to make it internationally illegal in China in 1931 but England backed out on us, much to her present discomfort. Llone Eagle Warns U.S. Agains.tWar HIGHLIGHTS FROM LATEST BOOKS Colonel Chiirlcs Lindbergh tells nationwide audience that "America has little to gain by taking part in another European war." Making his first public statement in several years, famous flyer said oceans form adequate natural defense for U. S., even against aircraft: Ilillman Saves Bankrupt Firm Thcie is inspiration for every American, new or old. in "Sidney Hillman", by George Sonic (Macmillan: §2,50'. It is the Alger story up-to-date, of the rise of a Russian immigrant boy to the de- served designation as "labor statesman" and pioneer in modern Americanism. A hint as to how Hillman gained the ittle is given in this incident on how a business on the verge of bankruptcy was saved: Hillman at once grasped the fact thai the IJusines.s was essentially found. . . He thought of the jobs of hte .several hundred workers who would be turned out into the street if the establishment clkosed down. He also thought of the probability that after those workers had suff red month of unemployment, non-unionized manufacturers were likely to move in and exploit them at lo^ wages. He suddenly said to the employer: "I have no authority for this from my board, but subject to their approval, do you think it would tide you over if the union should lend you 5100,000 on the condition that the banks will extend their loans? The manufacturer was taken completely by surprise and protested that his purpose in breaking (lie news to Hillman was not to ask for help. He finally consented, however, to go back and discuss the matter with the banks again on the basis of the offer. • The bankers were dumbfounded when they heard the news. "You have lost your reason." they said in effect to their client. "Your troubles have gone to your head. Unions exist to hamper business, not to help it. These red revolutionaries would not try to save you." Finally they became convinctcl Ancient Hebrews Used Hitler's Swastika WHEN Adolf Hitler adopted the swastika as the insignia of the Nazi party and Inter incorporated into the flag of Germany, it is hardly possible that he realized ho was copying an old Jewish symbol. His campaign for "pure Aryanism," which has developed into persecution, would hove prohibited the use of the swastika. But the Hebrews did not originate the symbol. Its earliest appearance, so far discovered, i? upon a painted cup from Mesopotamia, made in about 3000 B. C. Metal workers of Asiatic Turkey used the same design as early as- 2000 B. C., and the ruins of a Greek villa, destroyed in 348 B. C., has a swastika inscribed on the floor. The Buddhists of India incorporated this cross with hooked arms into their art and the Chinese used it as a sun symbol as early as the second century. Among the American Indians, the swastika has long been a favorite. Navajo silversmiths use it extensively in their jewelry and it is found frequently in rug designs. Many of the "luck" pieces carried by American boys also bear [lie swastika. The Nazi emblem is shov.'n on the German stamp, above, of the 1034 ksim t (TO HIMSELF) SHES GOT EVERYTHING A MAN WANTS- PERSONALITY, A WONDERFUL DISPOSITION, AND PLENTY Of) PEP-lU POP THE "^ that hte union meant what it said and could back up its promise with hard cash. They also .saw the force of Hillman's reasoning, and agreed to co-operate. The Amalgamattcl in the end had to put up only $30.000, not a cent of which it ultimately lost. The concern in question was saved and is doin<4 a large business today. Petition PADUCAH.

Twice as Many Rats LOS ANGELES—(fl 3 )—This city is now estimated to "contain 1.3GO.OOO per- .sons. but there's another population figure just out of which the place is not proud.
