When the last war broke everybody leaked oh it as an' umnKed disaster and the markets of the world went to pieces. But ns the wai progressed business men began to sec that war could have its bright side—thai money could be made out of it That lesson is reincmucied. But have we learned all tlio lessons? What arc the stock-buyers gambling on? That it will be a long war? That America will tlnnlly break down nnd start granting credits to England find Prance? If the liar is not a long one and if America stands her ground on not granting credit to Europe, the most the war can do is give us a moderate and wholly temporary suicease to be followed quickly by a se\erc collapse \VUl it be n long war? That k n field of prophecy for the military expert The market's action is a forecast that it will be a long war. But it Is -forecast by.stcck speculators, most of them complete amateurs in stock speculation 'ifid e\en worse than complete amateurs in military prophecy. If it is a long i\ar, can Frnncc and England buy from us enough to make, us prosperous without credits heie? They cnn indeed buy a good deal Prance has just authorized tlie cabinet to diaw up to 25,000,000000 francs for c\teinal purchases England lias not fi\cd on the extent, of external purchases but, she can' do better than France They have the gold and the credits he'ie through security ownership to buy several billion dollars'-.worth.

But it: will not be enough to give it, a lift sufficient to support a boom. And we must remember that against the war orders must be placed the other peace time industries which will suffer. The amateur and the investor Will do well to keep in mind that what he sees now in the exchanges Is the purest of all gambles.

At least two residents of Blythe- villc have mothers who arc in the midst of it nil, others have sisters nnd brothers and others have more distant relatives. The 80-ycnr-olrl mother of •Henry Reidman who lives .in what wns Czechoslovakia, has three, grandsons who are novv fighting in the German, army.

The war for freedom, of Poland and Czechoslovakia must-be wonderful lo those people of Czechoslovakia \vho were compelled to become n part of Germany, according to Mr. Reidmau.- Visiting his mother there on a Fourtli'of July several years, ago, Mr. kcktmnn was surprised to see n celebration similar Ho those carried out in the United States-tn the anniversary, of the day we received our freedom from England. ' . v In overy parade lliere mis a flag of Czechoslovakia 'ami by of that country was nn American flag, flying Just ns high, he said. To he like' America has long been the dream of that country, Sir. Reidman was told by ills relatives and friends on his last visit there. Mrs. Herman Hess' aged mother nnd sister are residing in Mann- helm, Germany, near the French border where, fighting is snid ta be fierce already. It has been almost three months since she heard from cither of them and she-does not know whether anything has happened to them. Four nephews of Miss. Rosa Schuncritsch, who makes her' home- with the Joe Isaacs family, are iio\v fighting In the German army and she also lias a sister nnd two brothers living in Landsce, Austria. Sorrowed that her nephews must fight fcr Hitler, Miss Schuncritsch tries to b« comforted .because their families are in nn isolated spot from the fighting so they may not lose their lives. Her brothers may also be in the conflict now as they are « and 4D years of age. A letter two weeks ago from her sister did not mention one wcrd of war fears but was merely a brief narrative ot family affairs without any mention of the outside world. Miss Schuncritsch, who was also born in Landsee, Austria, wns graduated from high school in that town but n short time later came to the United states. Joe Isaacs has two half sisters living in Pcland both of whom have sons-who arc fighting in the Polish United States. Not in Ihe fighting zone at-this time but' near It are relatives of Mrs. 1. s.

(UP)-A tax of 2 cents a mouth on each utility customer in : Wisconsin would raise sufficient revenue to - build and maintain a 50,000 watt cleat- channel radio station for Ihestate, according to I'rof. Edward Bennett of the University of Wisconsin college of engineering. The cost of maintaining and operating a clear channel, all-time communication highway-for :i state-owned radio station is startlingly small when compared to the cost of maintaining the transportation highways of. the state, Bennett said.. Pointing -out that the suggested would place the burden on the potential users of the station. Bennett. explained that cadi month- utility customers pay 20 cents for electricity . to operate their ^radios and approximately $2.25 for gasoline tax. Signs Of War Weariness And Anxiety Are Apparent. TOKYO. — A vague uneasiness, product of war weariness and anxiety for the . future, . is stirrin" among •lho ; j](K>plc'of Japan.' • There haj>- been no lessening of patriotism • among the people during the more than two years'of ihe war in china, but there are signs of growing discontent, over Die Jack of success.of the'.China campaign. • Two notable incidents of the trend were the police concern over a mysterious movement-dramatized by the appearance at dusk each evening of white-rcbed .men who worship at shrines, in various parts of the empire, and. the. discovery of assassination ..plots -directed against some of-Jnpan's key men. Fanaticism and mysterious riles have combined In Japan's past to bring about uprisings and deeds of violence, The police, ever watchful for indications of popular unrest, saw some resemblance in the behavior of (lie white-robed worshippers to the activities of, (lie Blood Brotherhood League prior to the 1032 revolt in which Premier Inukai was assassinated. Trio Confessed Hot ' Three-men were arrested In Tokyo on July 15 of this year nnd confessed to fm assassination plot iigaiust Count Itfakino, 'former Lord Keeper of the .Privy Seal; Kurahcl Punsa, and Imperial Household Minister Tslmeo Mat- sudalra. ' Since then there have been unconfirmed reports of oilier assassination plots against cabinet ministers. All of the men reported as the objects of plots are moderates persons of high ability who are opposed to embroiling Japan in headstrong acts antagonistic to ether nations. They used their influence against the proposed Gcr- Th/?y also urged a course of moderation In Japan's dealings with Great Britain and (he United States. The anti-British demonstrations in Tokyo this summer showed another aspect of the situation. There was no Inck of genuineness nbout the fcelinj? against • Britain to Japan at that time. .. During the last two years tlie people here hnve been told, by newspapers,'magazines and in letters from soldiers at Die front, that'Britain was obstructing Japan's objectives in dhlna. When patriotic organizations, began agitating against Britain they found a ready response and there was no difficulty in turning out as many thousands as they desired for tuc anti-British demonstrations. Such, a display against the United States would be'impossible at present. ••••.;'• Views I'uhllsheil j After the abrogation of the. 1911 commercial agreement by the United States there '•' -were some ;nili-/imerican declarations/ but they, evoked little popular response. On the contrary, America's views were presented with'remark- able- clarity despite rigid censorship on news • panted . in Japan. K. K. Kawakaml, Washington correspondent 'for the Aokyo Nichi Niciil, cabled to his papers and it ivns printed here: ' "Japan must immediately evidence her profound respect for American life, and properly in China by forestalling recurrence of such incidents as the bombing of American schools, the beating of American citizens, and tlie military occupation nf American educational Institutions, cnless this is > done negotiations for a new treaty cannot be opened." The Japanese people have known little nbout tlie frequent protests of the United States government against bombing outrages, or that tlie bombings continue despite pledges to respect American property. If they are permitted now to learn about those things, the Am- x crican government may be successful in causing the people to realize , /SEPTEMBER 14, 1983 PRESCRIPTIONS Freshest Stock Guaranteed Best Prices flirty Drug Stores that, their <vr,-;i'loners, parttada-;?
