SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER ie, 1939 At'lHalifax-Safe FromVWar Marked Rise In Some Exports Offset By Decline In Others BV JOH.V T. FI.YKN (Written for NEA Service) MEW YORK, Sept. 15-7)10 Man-ln-the-street—and, of course, the Lady-Ill-the-Llvliig-Rooiii—veiy naturally wonder what this wai Is Being to do to thorn and to Junior. After all, they pny t) le L , i;ia . , u Hie grocery store and do aw (io ing-wllliout if (here is to be ani or that sort or thing-ami finall) do the nevessary lighting, if W i are to get around to iimi. Will (he war create job* In America? Will It raise wages? Wil It raise prices and thus redua wages? Will it mate more profits? Expand investments? Give n.s Ihe start we have been w.iltiii« for? Or win it hamper lls j,, |,| ls | Jie.w? Halse our taxes? > Generally, what is it doing to us and what is It likely to do to us? DQNT HE TOO HASTY ON PROSPERITY TALK The stock market has been betting that we are going to be prosperous. When the first, giin .sounded in Poland the market averaged fifty sleeks was 37 ^. within n eomparativeiy few days it had risen to ill. When the war started U. S. Steel was 40, Quickly it soared above 75. But the ordinary citi7.cn owes It fo himself not be swept olf his feet by surface indications. He will do well to proceed cautiously in adjusting himself to this dhaslei in Europe. NO IMMEDIATE EFFECT ON JOBS Is it going to make jobs? It most certainly is In some industries. In others it is most . certainly going to decrease jobs. But It Is a fair estimate that the difference either in a rise or a decline lu jobs will not be noticeable for some time. This does not mean that employment will neither rise nor fall for some lime, it ; means merely that the change, whatever it is. will not be so much affected at first by the war. Any rise in business from the war would come from our export trade— the buying of Europe. Europe will buy many tilings here in larger quantities. But there are also many things which she will cease to buy here. The balance will not be enormous either way at first. - ...... For.instancoyjii the last war the increase 'in' exports in' tho first year was not great. And in'ninny lines it was actually less. Cotton, one of our great export commodities, was not benefited at all—indeed, before the war was over it .suffered very severely. But copper , exports were trebled and gasoline' exports were increased tenfold. • Steel, too, enjoyed an immense increase in exports and nn -overt .greater increase in domestic business for export manufacture. KRANCE AND ENGLAND CUT SOME IMI'OUTS What we must realize now Is that France ami England will promptly come into our marke. . . . heavy orders for corlnln tilings which they need Tor war purposes and that, at the same time, they will greatly curtail or cut off their imports of other things. . For instance, in tlie first days of Hie war both France and England issued decrees to curtail imports of certain articles. There is a large number of items which no man can import into France or England without a special Ifcense. These include all sorts of luxuiy goods and among them are motor cars, typewriters, clocks, musical instruments, sporting goods. . Ilcor coverings, toilet articles and such merchandise. Also some countries have Also some countries have estab- grass seeds and wild millet has Mshcd limitations on the use of tccn produced and the actniatic certain goods—such as sheets nnd plants and animal life in Ihe lake pillow slips, handkerchiefs -and BRUCE CATION'S AMERICAN ROUNDUP BV liKtlCi; OATTON This was the happy scene as American freighter City of Flint arrived at Halifax, N, S.. .American and Canadian .survivors ol (lie torpedoed British liner Alhenla. f With 22' Waterfowl By Thousands To Visit Refuge At Big Lake Tlie beautiful Big -Lake Waterfowl Refuge, which has had thousands of bird visitors during the summer months, is expected to be a favorite resting place during the fall and winter months as the waterfowls wing their way .south to warmer climes. In excellent condition as to improvements made by man and nature and ideally located, with the lake and a large area of land lying .between two old levees, the refitjje is at its best.

With the refuge closed to all trespassers during the duck season, which opens Nov. 15 and closes Dec. 29, it la planned to keep a strict watch for those who would shcot on the government reservation. Persons will be permitted to use the floodway ditch along the east boundary of the refuge and that part of Highway 18 which crosses the refuge at Big fjakc bridge, 1-1 miles west of Blytheville. These places mny be used as designated routes of travel by persons carrying unloaded, dismantled or cased fire arms. Persons will not be permitted to carry firearms en the' refuge at any time. will continue to held a suitable stage of water in the lake for this season. . Arrangements are being made to replace the permanent structure at this location later in the fail, the refuge manager has been notified.

RISE AND FALL DUE IN EXPORTS Therefore, what we shall see in tlie first year of the war is p. very marked rise in the sale of certain goods abroad and the decline of others. , If there is an export increase over last year it will be r> moderate one. The last seven mouths illustrate this. All these countries have been making frantic efforts to prepare. Our exports of certain goods Increased greatly. But our export total for the seven months was generally about what It was last year. _ ,„....„ Farmers are optimistic.

Not more than two days bag limit of ducks and geese may be transported in one calendar week, out of state where killed. A duck stamp is required of all persons over 16 years of age who hunt ing ground. The wood ducks which nested there this summer, like nil other wild ducks are migratcry, and will soon be on tlieir way to southern wintering grounds. To encourage the Herons and Egrets, a large roost has been located on the extreme south end of Gun Island. This five-acre roost, in the small willow trees at this location has approximately 15,000 birds roosting there. All of the wheat and corn sealed up as security for loans from Hie government. These loans are at around til cenls on the farm. They look forward to being able to pay oil these loans from the increased prices of wheat and corn nnd al the same time get rid of this overhanging surplus. That's why grain prices have risen. But cotton farmers have loaded onto the government a 22,000000- bale surplus. The war is certainly going to do them no good, it will increase cotton use In war industries and just about ruin it In other industries. | We will lose our trade to Germany. But that is not much any- ground at night. Although no hunting is allowed on the federal government property, fishing is free on the refuge, which reaches from the Missouri Jtate line to a noint less than one- fourth of a mile south of Highway Robert A.
