And if it had, we might have been forced to rccognir.c the fact that something is Iwdly. out of gear in the machinery of ocean Ir'ansportalio)). For it is futile lo suppose that tlm Jlorro Ca'stlc trugedy will he "cleaved up" if. the exact cimsu of tlie fire is discovered, or if this or thai officer is deprived of his ticket. The whole case is just one more symptom of n bad situation which seems to. extend to all maritime nations these days. There was delay in sending out the SOS, there was confusion and lack of discipline among the ship's crew, '.many lives were lost thai might have been saved . . . These arc the ''({rave j that have been made.. don't ap[)lyjjo_tlie MOITO Custltt i. Jj'hey we're 'true ; wirp7i>thi; British ship Veslris -went down; they have been Inie of other post-war sea disasters. * . * • * And they reflect a pressure which economic .circumstances have put on the ancient business of winyintr pasr senders across the sea. ;-.. j; -, .The captain has lost liis ^Idjan'lie,- , -. "Vi'eiiflence: The home office is, or. taii^ \ , be, in touch with him every minute •' by wireless; the temptation to save their money and reputation by tlefen'- injf to the very last minute a call for help is almost irresistible: For if tli« captain issues such u u"all, and then discovers that he could, after all, have gul liis sln'p tlirotijfh unaided, his head is apt to, couiu oil' when he reaches port— and every captain knows: it. • v ' Furthermore, a ship makes no 'money lyirif in port. For this reason the "turn around." is quicker now than ever before.;. Ships spend little time in port between voyages— crack liners, very often, .are at their piers only a few hours between one voyage and the "next. * * » As a result, it is hard to keep crews. Sail.ormeii like their shore leave. Personnel of the .ship's company changes l'x;om MR t<>, tr/p—so avitably su^fe%' mid emergency "drills tyii, to result, i(i a smooth, perfectly working rnpchiix*. Ad.d, to. i(]r this the fact thi)it..Bi) s nowadays want ships to be ls, "with line panelling'in the cabins, much BJm-cruckery, 'and' the like, Because of this, atecl ships are lilted with flimsy, inflammable passenger quarters—and become lire-traps where they might be fireproof. Now all this creates a situation that is no one's fault. It is the simple product of economic pressure. Unless this pressure can in some way |>e relieved, we shall continue, every so often> to have shocking marine disasters like those of tliu Morro Castle and llie Veslris. —Bruce Gallon. . Nations in Debt Present lljianeial troubles of the League of Nations reflect the sorry plight of an agency on which the world once was asked to depend for peace ami good will. According to 11 report by a subcommittee of the league, of more than 30,000,000 {fold francs due as this year's 1 • subscriptions, more than. 14,000,000 ;is still to be collected. Out of the 0? member nations, only 12 are listed as having paid their dues in full. Adding the arrears ot member nations, fronr previous years, the league's (bailees are; behind nearly 37,500>000 francs. And until,.that's, collected, you can hardly blame Senator Borah for insisting that the United Stales stay aloof from the League of Nations. We've had our experience with world war debts.
