David I'. H:u rows <>l the II. H. army. Uitrro'A'K, former president of the University of Culifornhi, prepared a detailed sliuly for the national defense section of the Commonwealth Club of California on the now problems created by America's determination to assume (lie <lc- !<-ii£C' In both soiillicrji Atlantic ami the Souther;!

Barrows points out, the effective defense of the American fleet toward the south would be limited merely to the vorllicrn countries of South America. On the Pacific side, he points out. (lie circle of the fleet's effectiveness would pass throiuh Pent Tlic present Atlantic bases, he saM furnish protection only us far south as the northern h.ilf of Brazil "While we can make our defense of the Panama Canal and the Car- ribeim effective with our present naval and air bases, yet if we are to carry out our newly defined policy In North a«t South America, \ve must, have help from the southern continent." his report stated. "That help must necessarily be less military limn naval in cooperation with our own efforts. "It; South America, in my opinion, the essential stale is Brazil Brazil is a mitjhtv state, cmbrnchiL' naif of the continent and half of the people. "I mean by cooperation, Brazil's willingness lo nut whatever she lias- that is useful lo "us at our disposal, All Facilities Needed "Ard this includes harbors, and fortified air bases to the south. This cooperation we must have, if we are to undertake the defense of the whole southern continent. "Thfit cooperation, too. I fancy we already have. For 100 years the Brazilian policy has moved right along with the. American policy, which is highly fortunate." Barrows nointed out that with the .fleet'.effective from 'its home bases for the defense of the northern half of, it would, with a Brai-ilian Base, become also effective for the defense not only of the rest of Brazil but for the'whole Southern Atlantic coast for 2,000 to 2,500 miles southward, "The map gives the reason." Barrows reported, "why we mast have the assistance of Brazil. Brazil and most of South America lie east of North Amcrte. "Tile easlwan' bul^e of Brazil it fur closer to the Mediterranean and lo Africa than any point on our Atlantic coast, and is more easily reached by a hostile force lhan by our own naval and air power."

Habakkuk is a prophet of iv'iom we know nothing except what, we can gather from his brief prophecy Some have inferred from the last verse of the prophecy (3:19) thai Habakkuk was a singer in the Temple choir, but Ihere is no certainly about, this. Yet. this unknown man hns left us three chanters of n brief prophecy, full of deep insight into human experience and, problems and with a rich content of religious truth and guidance We are reminded thai even prophets hud their moments of depression. At times their words came like trumpet calls from a mountain ;op, as in our last lesson conccrn- "E the prophet voicing God's Brent, invitation. But al other times"tliev were as souls in the darkness of :he mghl, full of lamentation and ciying for the dawn.
