Host of us arc inclined to say, with former President Coolid^e, "They hired the money, didn't they'.'" and to louk with resentment upon any suggestion that the American people shoulder a burden that by all our standards of business morality appears an obligation of other peoples. Were the debt problem as simple as that which arises when .!oltn Jones borrows 550 at the bank there would still remain a question as to the advisability of insisting upon collection hi full. Creditors in even the simplest of transactions sometimes find it advisable to accept compromise .settlements rather than to run the risk of getting little or nothing from debtors on the verge of bankruptcy. But there is a great deal more involved in international obligations than in debts among individuals. It ought to clarify our thinking on the subject to remember that what we actually loaned the European nations during the world war was not, for the most part, money, but credits with which to purchase American foodstuffs, munitions of war, and other products. Little or no gold actually crbs.-ed the Atlantic. The money that was borrower! simply passed into-the hands of American producers of commodities that war-stricken Europe needed. It contributed materially to the exccnlionnl prosperity that prevailed in ihis country during the war period. Now that, of course, has no bearing upon the validity of the debts. But it does help to show why their collection is difficult. In the first place European nations find themselves iu the same position as American debtor farmers because of the enhancement in the dollar's ' value that has taken place as a result of the depression. It would take three or four times the amount of wheat, cotton and other commodities which Hurope actually received to liquidate the dollar value of those debts. But even granting the possibility of Europe making restitution in kind on this disproportionate basis, the problem would remain un- OUT OUI{ WAY solved for (ho K;ISUM that America dots not \vuiil iiiid could not afford to accept tlio \vlicil, i-oUon anil nianu- facttired Koods s | !c . Svl) t t 0 KIU'OIIC in win 1 lime, HOV dor-s siio wnnl onmitcli "f any oilier Kui-op, ;m products to make any substantial pvojjross toward actual collection of tin- debts. We 'cannot colled these dol>U in gold.' There j.s not enough goU, si'id to concentrate all idi'iv is in the United Slates would jnakc lliinxs for oui'xdvcs ;is well as I'm- Europe. \Vo might colled a .suli.stiiiitial part of these deljlt;, ]>fi'h;:i;s all of tlieiii, in commociitic.- 1 , but no American ipvi'ni- nienl would risk :;iuli a procedure, which would bo nninus to American producers. In view of all of iliis it seems that economists who arunc for revision of the war debt sfUlt'nuriil.s as one means of putting the world back on iln eeon- omie feet have a (rood deal to .-upport their conlenlJoji. Marines and Politics Although most of us overlooked it under the press of our own election, it is worth noting that the republic of Nicaragua has just held a presidential election also, and that the winning candidate was Dr. Juan Jlatilisln Sacaaa. The interesting thing about this is that American marines were sent to Kifaivifiiii six years airo for the express pin-pose of kecpin;; Or. Sacasa from taking office. Just why our Slate Department wanted to keep him out was never unite clear, but the marine:; were sent in and Dr. Sacasa was kept out and a number of fine young men on both sides were shot to death. Now, in an election supervised by the marines, Ur. Saeasa is triumphantly elected; and if you can think of any reason on eailh why our marines should .stay there, any lunger you have a very agile and nimble mind indeed.
