Until, we see those recommendations, if they are coming, can speak definitely about them. In tlie first place, since there is a major war in Europe, \vc have noted that the dceJarati-n of America's .neutrality came not as a rasult of the Neutrality Act of 1837 but as a result ot the law of notions and the lav; of war.

I-'advocate this uri- marily because I believe (hat our neutrality is slrongcr un- d«r international law wilhoiil them." Senator Ellicrt O. Thomas can custom beginning with Washington's first proclamation of neutrality. After the President had issued a proclamation, of neutrality, then it was necessary for him to invoke the embargo provisions of the Neutrality 1937. This was done In a second proclaim [ion. Some persons have asked why it was that tile Presiaent had to invoke the neutrality net-in lhe face of tlie European situati:n when lie did not invoke it in (lie face, of the Asiatic situation. One can give this simple answer- ASIATIC CONFLICT PRESENTS PROBLEM The President did proclaim our neutrality in ih c European situation. He did n3t in the Asiatic one. It would be thoroughly inconsistent for the President not to-flnd that war exists in lhe world after lie had proclaimed the United States neutral in that war. I tell (his simple story to lay a background for what, I think is the constructive approach lo an embar»oinn policy. ' „ The Act cf 1937 commences with the words "Whenever the President shall hud that there exists n slate of war. etc." A constructive embargo law, instead ol starting there, might start: "when- Constipated? .--- the one in relation lo the- Act whhli established it. 2. The floating or foreign loans for war purposes should lie prohibited. 3. Americans should Be prohibited ii'om traveling on belligerent ships ei- at least given notice that they are traveling at their o;vn risks. If the present neutrality, act went no 1 farther than this I believe that America would be able to keep out of war, as a neutral, just as long as she wished. She could still be. a controlling factor In maintaining neutral rights and working for a better order (.luring peace times. The American people are more united today in their desire to stay cut of war than lliey were •during the World War before 1917. We know today from experience that nothing would be gained for us or for the worlcl by our becoming a combatant.

I believe so because ours is tlie only neutral country with a law like ours. I should prefer to conclude wittant reference to a cash and carry theory, because the above suggests' "strongly, as *" it should, that we. would be v -ivilli- out it simply by" f using Jntcrrk- tional law and dominance by neutrals as our, guide. I definitely do not believe it essential lhat nil American property be kept ort the high seas as is contemplated under the broadest-interpretation of the cash' ami carry theory. Yet its advocates are ret 'without argument. I can accept the theory, if to get an otherwise well rounded out .program; it seems to add to. cr at least not detract from, the general strength or balance. Cash and, carry is not a primary, •ul a secondary subject. Its proponents consider it honestly to' be •ui additltnal security. Fortunately trial of the cash and carry idea is an experiment can do no harm. If its use has bad effects they will je not of the irreparable kind and there is nothing in it to induce lar. it is incapable of producing shock and I shall not hold out Against tryinjf it. - ~ Head Ccurier News want ads. finishing his education/ "Funeral services will be held Tuesday morning, 10:30 o'clock, at the Methodist church with the Rev.
