When prohibition cii'.ls. the distilling industry in America will be in the typical "infant industry" class. Congress will be urged to give it ample protection; to put the import duties sity-high so that the money Americans spend for liquor will go to American producers and not to foreigners. But we, might also consider the . fact that doing that will simply create a large liquor industry in this country, with a vested interest'in any future steps we. rrwy want to take on the liquor question. Might-it not. be wise not to give our distillnripo too much protection? Wouldn't it, in other words, be 'a <:ood thing if the-liquor manufacturing trade failed to grow to the, size it had before the prohibition era? . Uncle Sam> Salesman Uncle Sam has had to act a jjootl many unfamiliar parts this year. One of the strangest of all, however, seems io-be the combined ro!e of salesman and price-fixer which hn has undertaken in connection with Mrj Roosevelt's negotiations with the railroads and the steel producers. What apparently is going to happen is that the railroads lire going to buy something like 700,000 turn; of new -steel rails. They are gni'inj to gel them at a price substantially lower than current market quotations. And it is all going to happen because Uncle Sam decided to make it happen. Uncle Sam, in brief, acted ,as salesman, purchasing agent and price arbiter, all in ono moment. The result is going to }}<; all to the good for everybody concerned. But the old gentleman has certainly been tilling a new role. Spectacle and Warning The Navy Department is now lire- paring to send six or 12 seaplanes on •A mass flight from San Diego to Hono- lulu, according to recent reports. Such • a flight would be the longest single over-water hop ever attempted by a mass formation. Jt is tilso reported Hint if this flight is successful, n group of at least 25 planes may be sent to Europe next summer, as a gesture to balance General Biilbo's flight here this year. However much the layman may ([Uibble about the utility, or otherwise, of such; flights, they al least make gor- KCOUH and exciting: spectacles. Furthermore, they arc excellent domor.- strations of military strength. A nation that puts on such ftipfhts tacitly warns its potential foes what they can expect if tliey start anything.
