Liefore we indulge in very fniiicli of it, it's a good idea to stop and figure out jiist how- much it is likely to cost us. Here's n ease iu point—the present ehibroglio over Japan's hew policy in "China. Tlie Japaiicsti have announced what aitfb'uhts. to a ''protectorate over China. They have declared that no other lia- .turn'lias a right lo loan Chiil6 riioiiey, seridMier technical instructors, or provide her. with equipment which hiig'ht be : useful in time of war, if tokio happens to.'disapprove. Their steady encroadinienl un Chinese sovereignty, begun severill ycjars ago, has conic 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 and privileges. Here is a development which has aroused a good deal, of indignation iii the United States. But'before we let this Indignation get too strong, we olight to look at the 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 abo.ut it that you- are willing to go across the Pacific—or send -your son—to strangle in the sick-' bay of-'a foundering cruiser, or to roast • in the heat of a fire 1 room that has been wrecked by a torpedo, or to stop a machine gun bullet sdmevvhere along a beach 10,000 miles away? In other words, arc you indignant enough to be ready to go to war. for your indignation V If you are, theti you are probably entitled to express your indignation as vehemently as you please, fiut if you aren't—and it is doubtful if more than a handful of Americans are—it's wise to reflect on tlie price that we might be called oil to pay 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 BLYTHEVILLE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS if we. went off half-ccwkcd and spread our moral indignation all over the Far East. Drarhattc Appeal . A 17-year-old girl was taken to a New York hospital suffering from a rare blotid disease. Only a number of blood ^r'arlsfUsiohs coliltl save her life; she did hot Have the money to pay for them, aii'd the hospital was operrttilig on too limited a budget to buy them for her. So an ap]x>al was made to the public, announcing thai the girl must die unless voiuilteers came forward lo give her their blood. Wjtliin a few days more -101) people went W the hospital and ollcred to subhiit to transfusions. As ii demonstration of the way in which human sympathy will respond to an appeal, this is a surprising and encouraging thing. Hut it also demonstrates' the way in which luiiniin need 1 must bi; dramatized if we are to relieve it.
