War Scare May tie Means, of A verting War x II sometimes happens Unit if you expect the very worst for a long time, you eventually find out it isn't going to happen to you ;ifter all. It may be—and lot us hope it turns out that vv.iy—thai thi.s will be thu i£isc with the nuich-tiilUed-of next >vnr in Europe. No one predicts pr.aee, nowadays. Practically every observer who takes a look ut the European situutitm comes back to report that the world is' teetering on the edge of complete dis- - aster) with the outlook getting progressively darker as time advances. The shipyards and the factories tire working .overtime in every industrial country on earth, forging new weapons; from all sides come reports of inarching men, soaring airplanes, ami tensely watchful Availing in (.he t'ov,- cign offices. But is this war for which everyone .is preparing, doomed to happen, after all? Isn't (.here slightly better than an outside chance that it will not take place? Hasn't tha ordinary man—who cioctiii t want to (lie before his time, and who has a lot of things to do IhpL he won't bo ab!e to do if war comes—iwsn't he some reason for believing that ho will be permitted to live, and do the things ho wants to do? There is this to think of., When a "a danger is exposed as plainly as this danger has been exposed, and for as long a time, people at least arc not taken by surprise when at' last it comes up close. Having seen Hie danger coming •from afar, people have been, able to \u-ennvc. themselves fov it emolioiinlly. They are not apt In be stampeded. Petty incidents which might precipitate the catastrophe, if handled 1111- skillfully, arc sure to get the most tvioi'ul attention. A case in |>oii>l is the recent llara- np o\ei the Spanish revolution. This molt brought extreme eim.servatism and extreme radicalism in|lo '(iirec;. cxmflid H stirred up the .antagonism bctttcui conservatives and radicals all across Europe. 11 could very easily ha\ c touched • oil' a war. But it was not long before the powers wcie conferring on ways to localize the conflict. The foreign offices, to be blunt, were scared to death; BLYTiU3.Vn.LlJ!- (ARK.) COURIER NEWS OUT OUR'WAY heing scared, and knowing that war could be started so easily, they took steps to ward oil' the danger while there still was time. Kor—and this leads us lo the most encouraging factor of all—the various foreign oll'ices, without exception, know that thciv people do not 'really want war. The common man, in whatever country yon lind him, wants peace. If lie is led off to war ho probably will go, bravely enough; but he will not go gladly. If the war'lasts very long, he is quite likely lo lake the weapons which war has put inlo his hands and turn them against Hie people who led him into war—and take a terrible revenge. In 101'J .war came unexpectedly. 1'cople had nu time to set up defenses against it; leaders did not understand the dire reaction which 'it might ulli- malely provoke among their followers. Today alt 'that is changed. The dangers—all the dangers—are known by everyone. Is one, then, being too much of an optimist in suggesting that this "inevitable" next war may nol happen, aflcr all? — Bruce Cation. Wealth In Tree Planting of the 20,000,000 tree seedlings' distributed to I'armm for woodland and shelter-belt purposes in '10 states, in 19;ir>, makes the whole country richer, today and in Hie future. This seedling distribution is carried out through the federal forest service by federal-state co-operation, and has nothing to do wilh plan lings in slate or privately owned limberlands. They are trees furnished farmers at cost to plant in windbreaks along his farmyard, to reinforce his farm woodlot, or to anchor hi H .soil against wind or water erosion. '['hen, for 100 years or more, these Irees will work for all of us, holding the soil linn, raising |.h c wll [ C r table, providing grateful shade, and at last falling to servo men as lumber or 'fuel: . .

While our; county was thinly settled It was' alright for them lo eel Ihe regular! fees as provided by. salute, but; now that the county is heavily i populated and the commissions' and fees have grown to an cnorm-! ous amount they should be put upon such a salary as would; be just and . right for their services.
