Would Cash-Carry Law Keep Us Out of War After a great many months, of study and' discussion, Congress is nl last about to settle down to a discussion of a new neutrality Inw. The best forecast now is that it will offer the country a straight cash-and-carry law, under which n war-time customer could- gel essential supplies only by laying the money on the barrel-head and coming across the ocean with his market basket in his hand. *, This would afc least be a situation strikingly different from the one we 'saw iiv the last Avar. The:'foreign customer then was handled with gloves. was good, and the things lie bought were delivered at his door, as far as the rather anemic condition of, the American merchant marine permitted. ' It ought to be possible for us to understand llir* evils of such a course without leaping to the easy conclusion that low-minded bankers and munition makers connived in the dead of night to get us into the war. The principal evil was that such a system made us, to all intents and purposes, 'part of the allied war machine. That was why Germany was willing t/J start unrestricted submarine warfare lit the risk of an American declaration of war; the Germans simply felt that America in the war would • dp no more harm than America/ on the sidelines furnishing Uio allies' with unlimited' money and goods. There is the point of the whole business. Our i..'o]j'cy caused the side which could not take advantage of our markets to look on us as an-enemy. It made that side ready to adopt a course that would compel us to declare war. Now we can't expect any neutrality law to make peace absolutely certain. The most that we can ask is that such a law will make it easier for us to stay out of war. Wo can ask, to- be specific, that it will prevent a repetition of the 1917 situation. Would the proposed cash-and-carry policy do that? It would obviously help. We would: not have American dollars financing a European war. We would/ not have American ships steaming into submarine zones laden with goods for which. American shippers wore still responsible. We would nut have a hvie and cry nniuine across this country every time a tramp freighter, full''of cotton went to tlic bottom of the sea. But there is one factor in the equation that we too often forget: tha British navy. As long as that navy remains dominant, only one .side will come to our shores to trade in any European war which involves England, I£ we sell any goods at all, v we shall, be selling- them to England and her allies and to no. one else. To the extent of those sales, we shall have 1917 all over again. That is not to say thut the liiw would not help. It would. But whether it would help enough: to keep us out of war is still an open question. For Better Cotton Greene county Dinners arc taking a progressive step in arranging to buy all cotton on the basis of gradte'- anil staple,- If they stick to their "program (he result is certain to be a steady improvement in the quality and value of Greene county cotton, to the beneiit of growers; ginners, buyers atid the community in general. There has been some discussion of a similar program for Mississippi county. We hope that our own gin- ners will, keep their eye on the experiment at- Paragoukl and give thought to the henelits to he derived from the adoption of a similar plan here. After all, in this county, even more than in Greene county-, the economic welfare of almost the entire population is tied up with cotton. Our annual Joss from the use of inferior planting seed and from careless picking and handling of the crop is tremendous. The Pai-a- gould plan is no cure-all, but at least it provides a new and direct incentive for planting better seed and for handling the crop in S ucb a way as to protect its value.

Journal of the American IHcdfcal ALSocintlcn, ami of Hycrla, the Health Magazine The contagious material from the measles victim Is the secretions from the nose nnd Ihroat, and excretions of' tlic body, which may contain the virus of the disease'.

An attack of. measles ivill lower the resistance of the victim to rubeicnlosis, pneumonia, arid other contagious diseases.

M)W GO OX WITH THE STORY CHAPTER TV 'J'HE girl at tlie corner table glanced anxiously at her watch and studied the menu. Then she spied Ihc slim figure in brown tweeds she had been waiting for. "Daphne Breli," she said severely, -"you're half an hoiir late." "I know, Anne, but I've been over to the bank to deposit my tenant's check. He's staying on an. other two months until the end o£ November. Also, I've a very good reason for being late. Wait until you bear why! 1 ' "Unless it's bad news, let's older before you toll- me/: I've got to get some layouts, to Murray be lore two." Anne Cockerel! ! was 1 a successful young commercial artist wnd her friendship with Daphne had begun in the Johnstone Advertising Agency vvhpn Daphne was a lesser member of the copy staff. "You order and I'll talk, Anne Anne ordered their usual lundi. "Now talk!" "I've been promoted! I'm a full- flcdgcd copy writer now with two accounts of my own to handle c\ clusively, an office of my own with my name on the door nnd flfty more a month. Not bad?" "Bad? It's colossal! From rag In riches, or, from stenographer to career woman in five short years. Tell me, did you always dream that some day you'd be a successful advertising writer?" "On the contrary," Daphne denied. "Do you know, Anne, I once wanted to be an actress? People are always surprised when I tell them that. I used to be fair at dramatics when I was in college and I meant to, go ir.lo the theater when I finished but" — she sighed almost imperceptibly — "you know Jennifer had to be taken care of and Dad—" Anne knew ail-about that; knew that at 13 Daphne had left college to come lo New York to support herself. She had done it so that Ihe small sum Tom Brett had left to bis motherless daughters might be used lo send the then 13-year- old Jennifer ID a good school. 8 * * "IT had been five years since Tom Brett, hunting on his grounds i.) Connecticut, tripped over his gun nnd, dying, charged Daphne with the care of the flaxon-hairecl Jennifer. Daphne had done it well. Now Jennifer was finished at Miss Maidstone's.

"I wouldn't let this career angle creep into conversations when you're talking lo an attractive man. By the way, did you tell the mysterious Smith you were a business gal?" "Mr. Smith? I told him I had a job, that was all. Why?" "Oh, I just thought since you Uvo had n cozy tea, you might have gone just a little way into (lie histories of your lives. Particularly since you seem to have found him interesting." "Nonsense, Anne." Swift color Hooded Daphne's smooth check?. "He's man-led and you-know how I feel about married men." "What's his wife like?" Anno asked casually. "I don't know, I've never seen her. I haven't seen him cither since the day ho engaged the place, lie sends his check the first of every month. Anne, nt first ha used to'wrile little amusing notes about the place; bul I didn't 1 answer them because of his-wife. Now he doesn't." "Maybe he's got a.twin," Anne preferred genially. "If he hasn't, it will be. all Ihe same to me. Why are you always trying to find- a romance for me? Don't you know that I can't.afford any such luxury while If have to see Jennifer through? This year, I want her lo specialize in some course to prepare her for work. Did-1'-fell you she's coining tonne Saturday?" Anne toyed wllh her-fork for a moment and said, "Dnph, if I were you I'd drop the mother complex and consider mysclt for a while." Daphne pushed back her. chair and rose. "I'm late, darling.
