The paper mentions, among others, Germany, RUSSIH, Jnpdii and (lie United States as nations which are increasing their armaments. And when you examine things closely, you will discover that each of them is doing it for exactly the same reason that Jinglam! is doing it— fear. Germany looks' at her ring of potential enemies and feels the need of weapons. Kiissiit looks at Japan in Manchuria tnul feels a similar need. Japan looks at powerful Hussui, eyes the .United States Meet and opens the throttle. The United States, with a jittery glance ut Japan, builds up its fleet. And so it goes. ^ls there a more expensive emotion in all the world today than this same fcnr? Encouraging Report Timid Americans who /car thai their country is in a very bad way illicit be 'comforted by hearing, the words of Nicholai Osinsky, 'head of the statistics bureau-of the Soviet govcrnnionl. Returning from a tour of America, Osinsky declares that "Urn most powerful capitalist system in the world is still standing on its feet" in suite of the terrible losses of Die depression. Now it is worth rememljeriiig that if there is one man on earth who would have shouted the news from the housetops if he had seen signs. oC approaching collapse in the United States, it is this same Osinsky. but he didn't sec any such signs. Much as he hated to admit it, lie had to report that things were going along pretty robustly. Those of us who tend to get the jitters over the seeming slowness of our recovery program might well lake heart from that report. I hate a man who stands so that t'lic people pnnnot tell where lie stands. -Scnalor Robert B. Reynolds, cC North Carolina. OUT OUR WAY (ARK.)] COURIER NEWS Look fo Your Child's Eyes Importance of continued c(Torts in liomo iind .school to determine whether children's siglil is up to pav is emphasized in a report just issued Ihroujfh Ui(> Nrittounl Society' for tlic Prevention of Blindness. Tin's report, iirciJiiretl by n joint committee of the National Kilucalion Association and Hie Americnii Wcdica) As- sociiiUon, shows that fully 3,000,000 school children are handicapped by defective sight. Most of those children will he able to surmount their defects if the trouble is promptly discovered and treated. 13ut where the defect is not discovered, the eli'ccl on the child can bu disastrous. He may be blamed for stupidity or inattention in school, when all Hint is wrong is that lie can't nee what is going on. Regular examinations, treatment where treatment is needed, and establishment of .special classes for children whose .sijjht, defects are more lliwn ordinarily bad, will save many children from a very difficult situation.
