Tin*. summer the chancellor of that nation— a nation far less great and powerful than it was 20 years ago— was similarly slain by toirprists. But although armieb mobilised on the borders, and statesmen made dire prediction!*. of trouble, there was no war. ,Ih each ,tasie the provocative incident occurred in an unstable Europe .which needed only a blight shock lo send it sliding into the abyss of war.

Still Ahead oj Europe William Feather, Cleveland business niiin, returns iVoin a trip lo KWOIJU with the remark that, in spite of the depression, "this country is living on a plane that Europe will he lucky lo reach in another generation." Compared with Krance, Germany and England, he says, Die ordinary man in the. United States is living, if not a fife of luxury, at least 11 life of comfort. Conditions in England are better than those on the continent; but even there "the plain people do not know, a« they never have-known, u living- standard comparable., lo what we lind here after live years of devastating depression," : Here is something worth remembering. It- does no good, Heaven knows, to try to minimi-/.!! the clfects of the depression, to try to pf.-elcnd. that there has been Jittle real hardship. But it doesn't inirl lo remember thai, .when all is said and done, we are still luckier than, most people. The American standard of living is a heritage which even Ihe depression hasn't wrecked. Judgment Under Pressure. Tim more one reads about (lie,-tragedy on the liner Morro Casllo, the more one is impressed by the terrible weight of responsibility which can descend, without warning, on the shoulders of the man who holds a command at sea. '','.•'•• No oilier walk of life can bring 'responsibilities quite 'like the sea captain's. In the' twinkling of aii^uyu he may bo called on to make decisions that will mean life or dtjnlh to hundreds of people—aiid he never' gets a second guess. • llis decision, once made, is irrevocable. His slightest 'error in judgment can ; bc fraught with unspeakable consequences. l''or this reason it behooves usj land- hlbher.s lo move slowly iu condemning the man who had charge v of the Morro Castle during the lire. ,'It may he that lie made wrong decisions. But we cannot judge them fairly unless we renlixc that Ihe sea captain's mistakes are made under a pressure that none of us who stay ashore will ever know. We arc now preparing for nl least .n month of struggle lo win (lie textile strike. —Francis - ,1.
