Help WorU By Saving Democracy in America Harry Colmcry, national commander of the American Legion, is nil outspoken and intelligent public figure; ami lie has seldom spoken out with more intelligence than he did the other day at a luncheon meeting in New York. Commander Colmery was sayings-hat the aim of the American, Legion is primarily to preserve for the liberty- loving .people of America the heritage handed'down by the founders of the republic. "Lam not interested in savins the world for democracy," he said. "I will he damned'glad if wo can save America." • V-. ; . In view of tl>o?cxp.erimcnt we tried 20 years ayb this'-spring,.; those words .are worth remembering. ''For"in 1017 we set out bravely to tywe ileiiibdracy and the world at hivgo; 'and we wound up by losing our ideals 'and our shirts and by seeing both the -world and •democracy decline into a perilously .bad state of health. So it ought to be clear to us by now that Com'mamler Colmery has the right slant on things. We have more than enough to do at home, aiyt', any efforts we make to save democracy can best he made within our own borders. Taking up arms to save democracy beyond the seas is a mugg's game, at best. What we mean by that word, "democracy," is .'more'than just a system of government under which every man has a vote. We really have in mind the whole liberal concept of society— the idea that the state exists for Juan, and not man for Ihc slate; the belief that an excess, of freedom is infinitely preferable lo a deficiency of freedom; the feeling that every man has the right to live his own life as he chooses, subject only to the rule that he must respect the rights of Others. Far from being helped by the World War, this ideal has been profoundly harmed. All across Europe the lights have gone out, one by one. We have seen great nations boast that they have killed, democracy and freedom; we have seen them exalt the state into a sort of god, killing oft" the rights of the individual (along, incidentally, with a goodly number of individuals), as if OUT OUR WAY human society had no better model to copy than Die society of the ants. As Americans, we want to see those lost ideals restored overseas. But we should realize by now, that it is futile for us lo try to thrust them down anyone's throat at the cud of a rifle barrel. They just don't grow' that way. Until men sec for themselves that those ideals boar a bigger fruit of hu,man happiness than any other, they will remain unconvinced. And that brings us buck v to Commander Colmcry and his remarks about "saving America." There is where our path of world usefulness Ijes, If we can make democracy work in a complicated, fear-haunted world, solve our problems without; sacrificing our old liberties, and make this (and in sober truth the land of promise it has always been in legend, we shall have done our full dntv. Production Control The liners and criers about "artificially produced scarcity" really have no ground on whlcli to stnnd, ami arc cither too stupid or too dishonest to face the facts squarely. What Iticy object to so strenuously .Is actually planned agriculture, and planning has been tlie great need of agriculture almost "since American fields were cleared from American forests. . Much of the furore has been raised because of an organized, and reasonably successful, effort to control the 'production of cotton. There Is no scarcity ' In the world cotton markets, artificial or natural, nnd no prospect of scarcity from now iinlll world without end. A scarcity exists when the supply is not sufficient for the demand. Abundance— not scarcity—has teen Hie 111 which has alTectca cotton In all Its ramifications. In the lace of facts so plain that a child could understand them, stupid fools still howl for a return to the old system—or perhaps, not; fools, but economic racketeers who try • to delude unorganized farmers into offering themselves as ri sacrifice to the interest,'! who care not whether the farmer lives or dies, so long as he • produces, and produces, and then produces some more—and lets them lake the pick of a crop several limes too large, at prices of their own quoting. —East Arkansas Record. Hclina. "Subsidies" All Around Are Only Fair Play The S927,COO,COO Department of Agriculture appropriation bill voted by the house of representatives carries $500,000,000 for benefit payments to farmers participating in the soil conservation program worked out as a substitute for AAA. When Washington newspaper correspondents asked Secretary of Agriculture Wallace why this "subsidy to farmers" should not be reduced in Mr. Roosevelt's economy 'drive, he replied that these benefits represent not a subsidy but "justice." Technically, the soil conservation bsnefits may be a form of subsidy. But they <io not tegln lo compare In magnitude with the virtual subsidy protected manufacturing industry lias been collecting for generations from all the people of the United states, farmer., included, in the form of prices enhanced and entrenched by high larlfls. —Arkansas Gazette.

The symptoms by which most people know- tuberculosis is tlie coiiRh, which indicates the luns is Infected cither by tuberculo- is cr \:> come finer uorm. Any cough that lasts for three or four weeks may represent a disease of the lungs. With Ihe cough, frequently, there is expectoration. There is also, in certain cases, enough destruction of Inn? tissue that the tuberculosis victim may expectorate some blood. And fluid may pour into the walls of the chest—an example of the attempt of the ! bcdy lo control tlie infection. Because of the way the disease attacks the humnn body, tlie person with tuberculosis generally is rather sick, and complains of a !css of strength nnd weight. It docs not tnke an unusual amount of exercise lo tire him.

CHAPTER VI 10AN sat at her desk in the tins " oflice adjoining Mr. Hcndij s and watched the ships on the river below. The ofllce was quiet this morning, as it always was on S it urday, with only a skeleton force on hand. Ordinarily she did no' como in herself, but today Mr Hcndry was leaving town for a few weeks to look over new mining properties, and there probablj would be some urgent detail; which he would wish to turn ove: to her. The Queen of Bermuda had jus nlipned away from her pieir, am now seemed lo stand still for moment in midstream before'turn ing her nose toward the open At laulic. In ihe sunlight the shi was a gleaming white palace her, as it were, to th iv..^ic sun-drcnchcel paradise: of' palm trees and hibiscus. She heard the door (o her office. 071011 behind her, RUC\ she turned quickly. It was Bob. "So? Thai's all you have to do Ihis morning? Watch the ships go by?" He came over to her side, anight her hands in his. Then, lowering his voice: "Do yon think J could steal a kiss during busi- .10SK llO.ll'S?" Joan smiled t':p at him. "Mr. llendry v.-ould-bc certain to catch I you doing it." California! Joan fialcJ. Would ihc oluw^s (rcmblc whenever the u'jnic of llial iialc i^ns mentioned? about it?" "But—" I "Then—"- lie kissed her eiuickly —"it's nil right, because we know iic'el approve. 11 "We know nothing ol the kind," Joan corrected merrily. "He cx- t^cts us, inosl of all, to uphold •,';'.c elignily of the company, llow- e-/er," and her eyes sparkled mischievously, "it's all right for the ir.omcnt, because he's busy on the phone." "Good!" He kissed her again, not so quickly this time. "I hope he talks forever: "He won't. It's long distance." "Too bad. However, as long as he's talking, lie won't be wondering what's keeping me. Know what he wants to sec me for?" "He didn't say." i 0 * VOR a moment they stood there at the window, luinds clospoc together, listening for tlie click that would mark the end o£ (he phono call. Presently Bob said: "The Queen looks beautiful this morning, doesn't she?" Joan nodded. "It's strange," she said, "this is the first 1imc I've really noticed her. And she's Eagerly, lie rcael her face lor The inlcr-ofllcc phone on Joan's an answer. Joan gasped. "Bob, dear, not in a few weeks . . ." "Why not?" "1 just can't, Bob. Truly 1 can'l. There's so much lo do . . ." "What?" * "Ch, jusl everything," she said nancly, trying to itemize the many details in her own mind. "I have no clothes ..." "You have plenty of clothes, he contradicted. "And we can get summer things in Bermuda." "There's the office. I can't just run oil and leave my work." "You con arrange to leave it for a week or two," be insisted his voice deep with persuasion "Then you can come back ane straighten everything out before leaving pcrinanenlly.

(.iiar and cloudless, but it.sloras lay over Ihe horizon, il made nn difference. The ship would sail on, valianl and courageous, because her course was s : jt straight. There was no wavering once a mariner set his course. 'I have set iny course, loo," Joan told herself. "There's only one way for me to sail now— and that is straight ahead." For the first' lime she realized [low simple It all was. A ejuht , wedding, a quick taxi trip lo t-io ;•• ;liip, and within a fev/' 1 .i"»inutcs Joan Barrett would be lost in the past, forever, as Mrs. Robert Andrews sailed off into a new world of her own making. Suddenly she knew lhat .the moment Bob came out of Mr. Hen dry's office, she would agree lo h s plan. The Ihings she had thought important—the bridal finery and embroideries—these were bul Ihe details of marriage. They would all come in time. The real joy was the culminalion of this happiness they had found together, c o 3 r fVHE biizzer over her dcjk •*• sounded, indicating that the was wanted in Mr. Hendry's office:. She picked up her notebook and \ r enl in, wondering \vhclher Bob had spoken of their plans as yet. They were bo'ih watching the door as she entered. Mr. Hendry smiled brightly. "I tell you, Bob," ho teased, she's a new girl since she look an option on' you. Look al her eye:; sparkle—Ihc-re now, don't blush. It's the truth. I swear, it makes me feel like a young fellow again, just to seo the two of you in love." Bob grinned foolishly. "Would il break your heart, young larly," Mr. Hpndry \vcnt on, "if I deprived you of young Lochinvar for a few weeks?" Joan tried not to show her ::."- tonishmcnt.

For over two vceks now, ever since the Frolic, 3ob bad been continually urg- ng her to set a definite date or their wedding. She hael icgged for time to make some ort of preparation, yet now shei asked herself what all Ibis prep- .ration meant, anyway. People di« get married on the •^pur of the moment. In the news- japers, it always sounded delightfully dramatic, ycl it would not be icr way. She would want to be sure of the road ahead. There was so much that was terrible on the road backward. She wondered if il were that thought which slill stood between them, if it was that which made her hesitate at Ihe thoughl of marriage. Bul no. She had-put the past out of her mind forever. She would never look back again- not ever. She turned and looked down Ihe river again. The Queen was well under way, her colors flying gallantly in the breeze as she steamed mil iulo Ihc mighty, endless Atlantic, Today ihe sky was --V poalc-cl, wondering whal to say. Bob caught her eye and llashoel a she could rot quite understand. Evidenlly, however, he- had not found an opportunity to discuss their own affair. "I think I can endure: il," she added quickly. "There's a great deal I have to elo myself." She thought again of shopping sprees. "I'm glad of that," Mr. Hendry t-aid. "The fact is, I've been feeling sort of low the past few days —my annual touch of the r.eippe, I suppose—and I thoujib.t ^"b might look inlo llrcsc prar^lies for me." "Of course." "From the expression on Bon's face, she knew now that lie was willing to forego their own plans and lake over tlie mission. That was the message he was living to give her. "I can probably get back within a week or 10 days," Bob raid. "Two weeks at the most." "I'm sure you can," Hendry agreed. "California isn't as far off as it once was." California! Joan paled. Would she always tremble whenever tlie name of lhat state was mentioned? Alter all, the Hcmiry e:-- , ganization financed a dozen mines in California. It didn't mcai] anything . (To 15e Continued)
