Yes, Business Is Good •—in Munitions So roue)) thought—and so many words—are being given in Washington to what the United States should do al^out selling munitions during a war, that almost nobody pays any at- tentipn to the fact that right now, not waiting for any war but the one in Asia, we have quite a munitions trade on our hands. ' This isn't hypothetical, something - that is going' to happen, or might happen some time in an indefinite future. This is happening, right now. In the first five months of 1939, the United States sold ?50,000,000 worth of armaments abroad. That includes only actual munitions, war planes, machine-guns, shells, explosives and bullets. The trade is moving briskly along at a rale above ?10,000,000 a monUi. Sales for 1930 aie now expected to be $130,000,000. We have never before or since the World War sold any such armory of the weapons of death in a single year. - Such figures, of course, do not include scrap-iron and other equipment and materials destined for war no less .definitely, though less directly. This is only the finished product, ready for the . pull of the trigger. - France ordered 20 millions worth, Britain i-1. Canada has oulercd a million and a quarter, and far Australia just placed an prdcr for four million ^~and over -in new planes.,-The'.jNcthci'i "landsHook two" and a h/iIf'miliToifs.'am! •_ ordered five millions more for. their < ( East Indian possessions. Rumania sent for a million and a quarter. China, which look seven millions last year, has fallen lo only about a half million thus far tins-year. But of course what is going on in China is - not a war. t ' In any event, some thought ought lo be given, not only to a'war tiado'thai may some time develop, hut to the war trade that is now going on. While senators debate and quibble about hypothetical future things, the United States is rapidly getting into the position of armorer to the world. Such trade, while welcome in a sense, is not the most solid foundation on which to build prosperity. We found that out in 1!)20. Must we find it oul all-over again?

Jackson staled lifs Ideas on the 'liilrd-lcrm. question by tellngiilsliliif between n ' Iliird • term for President Kooswli and B Uitrd term for (lie policies of ilio Roosevelt administration. Mr. Jacteon said he was not "saying Oiat the President must accept a third term, which he may no I wont." What he was saying, as he wont on, was that there should be ''a third term for Roosevelt's Ideas." This makes the Sollcllcr-pencral's remark? on the highly controversial subject of the third term llic most sensible, yet tillered by n member of the (Klmliilstrnlloii. For here is a high- ranking officer tnlk-tiiff about tlie third term In terms of Issues, not of men. At this writing, nt least, he leaves Mr, Roosevelt out of his calculations. Tlic New Dcnl, In cflccl, j s whnt he holds must continue. Now, to agree ivllli Mr. Jackson that tlie New Deal should BO on Is not lo accept Ihe New Deal in ail its aspects. Cciia'inly it is not lo blink its excesses, its profligate spending, Us political nmncuverlngs, . Its many error* niul blunders. At many places, the New Deal 1ms gone too far; evidence that (lie Administration it-self realises (his Is to be found in restrictions which It Is imposing, or Is attempting to impose, upon ilself. But there will, can be, no «olng back lo 192S and beyond. An era passed wllh the''economic collapse that will soon be 10 years old. The depression ushered In another way of life.

Tlie goal will be to make lliem more nearly perfect, not lo "rip diem out," to use Mr. Jackson's phrase. • •. Alf M.

Regardless 'of who ' (lie nominees arc and who is elected, (lie country will go forward, not back. American democracy has a way of retaining what is good, the while it sloughs off, the bad.

MAUDE HOGAN, s'geS 56 had always held thai whil< automobiles and bicycles and air planes and such contraptions svere all right "for them as wants 'cni,' she herself would cling to the conveyances which she understood and loved. She had a genuine affection for horses. She could handle mules, too. But for day- in-an-day-oul service when she was ore hunting in (he wild Arizona hills she would fake burros every lime. Burros arc humble, dependable creatures o£ amazinj endurance but negligible speed, Five in a row, tarrying tent canvas and groceries and water canteen and pick and shovel arid sundry utensils, look Jikc a sort of huge gray calerpillar inching across the mountains. Mrs. Maude Hogan walked beside such a caterpillar this morning. If she felt like it she could ride one of the buri-os, but Mrs. Hogan was a pedestrian who rarely felt tired. She guided her charges through Joshua Irces, making a short cut from the Dale ranch, and after topping a low hill she could see the deserted town of Golderest yonder in its historic canyon. It didn't impress her. Mrs. Hogan was not given to esthetic considerations. She saw in the colorful hills not (he arlislry ot nature, but Hie chemistry of it. Green cliffs connoted not "tarnished bronze waiting a sculptor's hand," but a possible deposit of copper ore. While gronito-likc formations to her were not "wilderness- castles wealed by tlie Master architect," but were jusl rocks which might be crushed to show some valuable gold. Mrs. Hogan's husband had been a poor prospector, and when his children grow up she herself look to the hills. Whenever she Rot lonesome at it she came in and worked lor Mrs. Dale. She had been there, canning apricots for Mrs. Dale, when the young and bubbly Roselee hired her. She trudged dutifully up the deserted main street of Golderest at 10 o'clock this morning, paused in front ot the Ace High Hotel and hollered. "YOO-HOO-O-o-o!" '•'." Nobody answered and she hollered again. She looked in two or IbVee 'buildings, and : then, because her eyes were keen to detect outdoor phenomenai however small, she Eaw. tracks leading up the street-toward- the old .Golderest mme shaft.;..'; : '..-;• •"Gitl. Git along!" she ordered her,burros, and moved,with'them to follow the tracks. • * '•• ' • J)UST was still tddying, seWlng , when she came'to the gaping note m the mountain 'side : that marked the old mine shaft. It alarmed her at once. ' "YbO-HOOl Miss Roselee?" She cupped her hands behind her ears, and heard enough to make her move swiftly. In scarcely, no.time,she had Jerked her lantern and a pick off a burro, and was hastening into the yawning mine shaft herself. She went down its slope at a trot, fear in her old heart. She had been around mining people all her life. She knew some of the dangers that beset them. - For once, though, Providence had been kind. Mrs. Hogan labored for no more than a quarter-hour when she caught Christine Palmer's hands and pulled that pale and frightened girl through a rocky hole Together they extricated Roselee then Franklin Larraway, and finally big Dick Bancroft. Despite Ihe danger they had faced Dick managed now to look at ali of :hem/with a reassuring smile. There was a great deal of talking snd shaking and thanksgiving and trembling, and worrying without reason, and when they came to daylight again the young people -cah'zed they had been imprisoned :or almost two hours. • Mrs. Hogan inspected the girls. •• "Yo're both yer gills," she declared. " woulda jot out presently, with-Mr, Richard here a diggin 1 that 'way icneyt But I shoulda got here sooner. Your ma'll chide me for neglecting you like this!" She comforted Koselee, dusting isr and talking affably. "Only tiling, Mrs. Hogan," •rankhn put in, "we were afraid our digging-would.cause another •ave-in. 1 Arid we didn't have any ools, or any sort of light. I lost ho flash, like a baby! We knew ve were digging right because we ould get a whiff of fresh air, but ve were surely scared. We owe you plenty for happening" along." "That ain't so, son!" the good ady said, but she beamed tinder nis kindness, even so. - "You'd a !ol out. I'm curious. I'm a goin' rack down in there for a spell just o look it over, right now." '.

Wilh- oul a further word he and Franklin left them—they had already agreed on the order of the first day's work—and she walched the two handsome youths striding toward franklin's car. She was looking more directly, however at Dick himself. "Isn't Dick tho besl-looking fhing that ever walked?" Ch'ris- tine breathed then, surprisingly. Roselee turned to look at hei- friend. "Why—Christy!" "ilmmm?" "Are you—? Why, yes! Dick moves gracefully. He is a fine athlete, remember. I—I think we're lucky to have hired him." noselee turned the talk into business. But in her heart had been planted a sudden new worry. A vague, undefined little worry, it is true; quite inconsequential as yet, but -recognizable. • TJoselee looked up to study anew Christines erect posture, her long slender legs and shapely body, the ^VT a '." 1 thc P rou<J s et of her head which made her friend distinctly statuesque. "You are beautiful, Christine!" Roselee declared, suddenly, and meant it. "And sweet!" Christy looked at her a trifle curiously. "Sure. Just discovering it.'kid?" She thought it mere,y a rnatttcr for kidding and fun. 'Prettiest thing in Arizona—next lo you. Shall we go call Mrs. Hogan and get her setlled first?" . They wouldn't venture again far info Ihe shaft, and they heard her coming back out anyway. The good woman's eyes were lighted with something more than the presence of daylight when she came from the hole. She held five or six egg-sized rocks in her hands, clutched them close lo her. "Children," she spoke excitedly, "I alw'ys say trouble is right frequent a blessing in disguise." . - "Why, Mrs. Hogan? Why do you say that?" Koselee lookod curiously at her. "Nev 1 inind! You wait, honey, till I'm shore -what I'm a talking about!" Soselee changed the subject. Perhaps poor- Mrs.. Hogan -was just 'an-oIdMady" gettijig'a little queer, she guessed. :• (To Be Continued)' THE FAMILY DOCTOR . •>. ***...«. «. wr.
