East-And South! ' War is reality. It is a fa.*, not a theory, once the guns begin to roll. As "war sweeps Europe, it presents the United States with a set of fads. They- are Tacts nbt primarily of out making. Their roots go far back into the past, their immediate ancestry ib. in the World War, for which wc had no responsibility. Our comparative reluctance s'ince''l919 to join m moyc- anents'aimed'-at a recent world order may throw on us some share of totlay s .biame, but primarily a new war is not lu'of^our making. _ "k 'One-of the .facts inevitably result-. " ilia from another widespread war m Europe is, this: Germany is almost certain to be completely shut out. ol the South' American market, both as ''buyer and seller, for the period of any war.-Britain may buy there, but her"sales' are certain to fall, since she will riot be able to fill orders. Italy's trade bust" also 1 'be adversely affected. Japan is already hub-deep in the war :n China'. ~ " -This'forces upon'the United States an opportunity to be the provider of- goods which South America can get nowhere else, or get only with diih- culty. Such a war will literally drive the American nations in upon one an- 'othes:. as nothing else could do. The United States must prepare to accept this, responsibility, and to make the most of this opportunity. U seems heartless to plan thus to profit by the. • misfortune of others. But there; 5s;\«o',; other' way. "This challenge must be picked up promptly, and handled effectively. The airplane industry has already taken steps to supply the ships which Europe cannot spare. Builders of autos, tires, and many other products arc preparing to meet-the demands that are certain to come to them ' ' . The situation milst be met. in & statesmanlike manner. If it is frittered away in a mere orgy of quick profiteering, nothing will have been built 'for the future. But if proper credits are extended liberally, if excellent goods are provided at fair prices,'further reciprocal trado treaties made, and purchases in the South • American market raised uniil the increased trade is not a .one-way proposition, a foundation can be built for inter-American trade and co-operation that will be hard lo shake in future. One may well regiet Uie. circumstances which cieate a situation like this. But to refuse to meet its chal- OUTOimWAY lenge -would be unforgiveably stupid. .When Europe returns to peace, if it ever does, the scramble for the favor of South and Central America will be resumed, probably with ruthless ferocity. Time and chance have given to the United States the opportunity to build in the Americas meanwhile :i structure of mutual trust and interdependence that will be unshakeablc. WaMay Wall Ue Proud One of the mo v st impressive sights in the world is the launching of a great ship. Especially in a yard like that at Newport News, it is a proud moment. For years cyery citizen of the small ship-building community lias watched the giant hull grow. Most of them have contributed to il the work of their hands and the thoughts.of Ihui; 1 brains. Then comes the day when the thump, thump, thump of: mallet on wood tells all that Ihu chocks arc being knocked away. Finally the great bulk trembles, begins imperceptibly to move. There is a wisp of smoke on the rubbed ways, a boiling.of water as the new ocean queen slides into" the river and stands proud and upright in her new clement. The America, greatest merchant ship ever built in an American yard, has been launched. Every American may be proud of her 723 feet of length, her beautiful lines, her safe and modern -construction. May- she plough peaceful seas, and serve a people at peace! ' SIDE GLANCES SERIAL STORY WORKING WIVES BYLOUiSEMOUrv\£9 . lass.
