But how about foreign trade as such without regard t<i (he national of the vessels that carry American products? fiidii.slry Not Affected Conservative opinion loans lo the belief that the neutrality law will lave little or no immediate effect on American industry with the exception of aviation. With the arms embargo out of tile picture, for instance the French and British can order the $80,000,000 wortli of planes they had ready to ship fro mthis country on September .1. Similar orders should continue for months. But the French and the British lutve not been buying other war material.' on a bin scale in Ihe United States, nor have their normal orders in other lines increased very much, indicating, hey have large stocks in warehouses. Likewise, the Allies seem to have >lenty of farm stnples on hand, what with a world surplus of wheat and cotton to draw on, much of it in tUeir own colonies. On the other side the economists suggest that the Germans have neither the gold with which to buy American surpluses, nor the ships to carry pro- duels through the British blockade. That means business as usual In the United Slates—for some months lo come—unless actual warfare on a large scale begins eating into surplus supplies in the war zones. « ••«»— BUENOS AIRES -M')- Police guard and bulletin boards are the only signs of war al offices of Bucnob Aires newspapers.

To be up and out i.s just us bad, in God's eyes, as to bo down and out," the evangelist said. The Tabernacle Happy Four Quartet sang two enjoyable numbers.

It is expected that j another large crowd will be in at- • tendance for this .special sremon. Asking men to look at sin in its true colors, the preacher pointed out Tuesday night, that sin was just as dreadful in the mansion as in the hut, just as wicked in the limosine as in an out of date vehicle, just as destructive in so called society as out of society. i U.S.lhipsMafBe Hog-Tied by Law May Fly Foreign Flag— War Boom in U.S. Is Unlikely I!y MOHGAN M. BEATTV Al" Feature Service Writer WASHINGTON - What price the neutrality law? Listen to certain ship- , ping men wilh long experience, and you hear that the first effect may be an undercover scramble by AJiicrican ship owners to register their vessels under foreign flags. That legal device might keep American vessels running on their regular routes in the minimum danger -/.ones prescribed by the neutrality law. I But it also means they would aban- j don the protection of the American flag and the United States navy. It's cither foreign registry, say these .shipping cxjicrls or abandoning business built up against stiff roeign competition for the last 2<) years. And many shippers arc expected to choose foreign registration before they abandon business and lie up their ships. ' A Practical Problem I Tlie shipping experts, are not, of course, attempting to pass on the question of whether it i.s right or wrung to have a neutrality law. That they are quite agreeable, is for con- I gross and the American public lo decide. But as a practical problem, they do insist that the law plays bavoc ; with the American merchant marine.] And in any event, the minimum danger /.ones required under the law will keep the American flag off the creamiest route in the world—the trans Atlantic run. But what if America ship owners .should abandon their routes instead j of taking chiinc.es under foreign flags'.' li\ that case, the United States maritime commission says a big section of the already sick merchant marine would be lied up. Large Annual loss The commission's data show thai H6 American vessels totaling 561,711) Ions \vould have to lie idle. That's about onc-fouI'th of the tonnage we now have on the high seas. In all we have 32G ships in foreign trade, a lotul of 2,150,000 tons of shipping. These ships, would lose about $50,000,000 in revenue annually. About G,OQO seamen would be affected. Some ?27000,000 usually paid out each year for wages food, repairs insurance fuel and what not on the bandoncd runs no longer would be spent. Brokers, tug crews, pilots ajid domestic ygents will lose another $6,500,000. Then there's the question of subsidies. The maritime commission estimates that $180,000,000 put up by the THURSDAY and FRIDAY FUR SALE Values Beyond r our Expectation AT A NEW LOW PRICE Ladies' Specialty Shop MAMMOTH PURCHASES!
