Be Prepared to Back V our Iridignalidri Mural imtigmilion is a worthy em<>- • tion, but its cijsl runs pretty hijjii, sometimes, iiefore \vc indulge in very .'much of it, it's a edod Wcit tu Stop and figure out jiisl how much it is likuly to cost us. Here's a case in point-—the present ehibroglio over .Iiipaii'jj iiew policy In 'China. The Japanese have announced what .amounts Vo a prottetdfate over Chiiia. They' liav'e declared that no other lia- .tion'has a right to loan Cliitia niohey, send'her technical instructors, or provide her with equiphibht which might be useful in time of war, if Tokio iiap- peiis to/disapprove. Tlieir,steady encroachment on Chinese, sovereignty, begun several ytiavs ajjo, has come oub into the open. Unless all Signs fail, the full subjugation of a great nation is about to proceed,,, with the consequent elimination of' many American rights arid privileges. . • • • * Here is a development which- hils aroused a good deal, of indignation iri the United States. But before we let this indignation get too strong, we ought to look at t!ie balance sheet. How much are .we. willing to pay for the privilege of denouncing this newest bit of• Japanese aggression? Are you, for instance, as a citizen, so indignant about it that you are willing to go across the Pacific—or send your son—to strangle in ,thc sick- tmy'of : a foundering cruiser, or to roust - in the heut of a fire room that has' been wrecked by a torpedo, or to stop a machine gun bullet somewhere along a beach 10.000 miles away? * » » In other wonls, lire you indignant enougli to be ready to go to war. for your indignation? If -you are, then you are probably entitled to express your indignation as vehemently as you please. But if you aren't—and it is doubtful if more than a handful of Americans are—it's wise to reflect on the price that we might be called oii to fray for a full expression of our indignation. There is no danger of war in this situation if we all keep our heads and leave .a solution of these difficulties to the slow, unemotional, and unexciting processes of diplomacy. But we could pay a very heavy price Dramatic Appeal A 17-year-old girl was taken to a New York Hdspital slill'crihg from a rare blotid disease. Ohly a number of blo6d traiisftlsioiis coliid save her life; she did hot have the liionr.y to pay for them, aiicl the hospital w.'ls ojicrjlting on too limited :l budget to buy them for liei 1 . So an apjK'al was made to the public, announcing that the girl must die unless vbiuiHeui's came forward to give her their blood. Witliln a few days more thiui 401) people went to the hospital ami offered lo submit to transfusions. As ii demonstration «f the way in which Human sympathy will res|>uml to an appeal, this is a surprising and encouraging thing. Ihil it also demonstrates' the way in which human need' must be dramatized if we arc to relieve it. Tlicrfc is a vast store of kindness iiild self-sacrifice in this world^ t^'e only. trbublij' Is that it Usually .takes )t dramatic ^situation to lap it-x'ffectyvely,' • SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Die towel unj which Is umli- this Machine'Age How-coinplctbty'it modern city is ;it (ho riijircy of its machines!
