Specter of Air Attacf? jar From Alarming One of the most prominent IIOKC.V- mcu of modem limes is the spcclcr of acrin) warfare. When the next wnr comes, we arc assured, great (leels of homhiiiK pliinoN will swoop on us out of the ocean somewhere anil rediico our chief cities to ashes in something less than the time it takes to say "Jack Robinson." Alarmists have harped on this theme for yews, assuring us that we arc defenseless ;it'<iinsl aerial invasion ami that we shall have a pretty sorry time of it the next time we fro to war. But Maj. Con. James G. Harbord, who was something of a soldier in tlie last war, thinks we are Celling worried for no ; good reason. In si recent speech General llarlionl bluntly scoffed at this picture of wholesale destruction. * * * Revicwiiu^the-.dreadful prediction of -American" cities destroyed by hostile bombers, the general remarked that the prediction has only one fault—it has iio foundation in fact. liefore we grow frightened at tlie thought of an invading- air licet, ho begs us to figure out where such a fleet would come from. "Jt is still a seven-day wonder,", he says, "when a plane, stripped .ofhi 11 excess weight, makes a trans-ocean flight, while in the time taken by the. Italian armada under Gen. Halo Iklbo to cross the Alliinlic, aided all the way by friendly nations, the trip could have been made in a tramp steamer." An air squadron mils'I have a base, continues the general. No neutral .country would permit its soil to bo used for such purposes; and if a Moat- ing base were used—well, we have a pretty fair sort of mivy, which could be relied on to take care of that. f * v And those bombs? No bomb yol made, says the general, could destroy a modern steel skyscraper. Those gnu bombs which, are to exterminate a city's populace would have to brought in by the million-pound lot—and even then people would be safe if they kept their doors and windows closed. There arc net, continues General Harbord, enough bombing planes in all the world lo destroy a city in a few hours. Km-therm ore, planes musl land, sooner or Inter; and "no air armada litis yet flown wlio«e personnel could not be run in by the municipal police if it landed in hostile territory." All Ihi.s sounds very much like excellent common sense. This bogeyman may not he quite as dreadful a .specter as we had supposed. —Bruce Gallon. Hitler's Mistake It begins to look as if Adolf Hitler made one of the major mistakes of his career in seeking to extend his influence lo the pulpits of German clmrclies. •A man's political beliefs (fan be changed or silenced; his feelings on economic and .social problems can be overridden or disregarded; but when you begin trying I 0 coerct; him in the iicld of religion, yon are apt to .stir up a great tleal more trouble than you fill) hamllo. The German people accepted most of Hei-i- Hitler's innovations docilely enough, but his inlcrforcncc in church matters has brought him nothing but criticism and defiance. What sort of omen all this may be for the future of Nazi rule is a question no man can answer just now. It is a safe guess, however, that the dic- (alor would be very giad to find some way of dropping this issue—since it turned out to be so much "hotter" he had dreamed. Relief in View /or Coal One of the most interesting siig- . Bcslions of the fall is the forecast, made by « writer for the Pittsburgh I'rcsH, that the federal government is preparing to take revolutionary stops to restore health to the great coal mining industry. ft is asserted that, under a plan soon loj be submitted to President Roosevelt, nil "marginal" coal mines would bo taken over by the government and retired from production. In this way, it is said, the pro'duc- '.tioii'.of. the industry could be geaifed ^o consiimplion, producers could make a fair profit, and workers could ho assured of ..steady work at a decent wage. It is impossible to forecast what will happen lo this sweeping plan, of course. It is encouraging, however, to see that the problem of the conl industry i« gelling earnest consideration. Something must be done, to rescue the industry from its chronic boiidition of over-production. This plan should at leasl focus our nUention on the urgency of the problem. We Americans are inclined lo jud^c Balkan kings by comic o|>cia sliindurds. King Alexander of Jugoslavia was not that. kind. —William R. Castle, Jr., former midcr-secretary ot Etntc. * t * No air armmln has yet flown whose personnel eon' 1 .'. :;;!, be run In by the municipal [Mlicc if It landed in hostile territory. —Maj, Gen. James o. Harbord. OUK WAY THET POSSE'LL SHORE KETCH U9 ON THESE BLAME THINGS! THEM'S FAST LOOKIN' HORSES THERE.
