Study Lalcsl Example of Nazi Regimentation \ You .(jail Icarn iiiiitc » bit about llws relative merits of, democracy and aiilocracy by stu'dying the undeclared wiir which Mayor. LaGuardia of Now York Hceins to be waging with the N;ui goveni'mcnl of Germany. .The mayor began it, as American mayors so often dp, by sounding pff at, some length on the evils of djetalor- ship. In brief, he sugguslpd that New, York install a chamber of horrors at its coming world's fair, and that it put the brown-shirtcd figure of u Nazi j in it as a..terrible example. 'Mm started The Geraian government'-J9<lgq(] a;,.formal protest with the A'm'pricaiuJJtai'eDepartment, protesting Unit « ifrjelid'iy power liti'd been insulted. The Stale Dopari.meiit made the obvious reply—that;;:while • this might be so, there is IIQ author-''' ity or tradition by which an American government can exercise the remotest sort of control over ail Aincri- ciin mayor. Then tlie Gorman newspapers swung into cry. ., - .-.• - , Der AngrilV remarked 4arkly that Germany might take an. interest' in' American events which "might not be precisely pleasant," unless ' Mayor LaGuardia's "slanderous i words" ' arc retracted. Other papers followed suit. The mayor was denounced as "a shameless lout," as "an aiwstlo of hate.vvilli a. thieves' (ion meJiliiJily," as- a' "nasty fellow" (someone was lacking in in- venlivoncss, on that', one). And out of it all:wo get one of the frothiest teapot tempests by which German-American relations, have beeii troubled since llticy J.png received; *i Nazi oruiser commander while clad in Krceii silk imjamiis. The thing isn't important, of course. H is simply cue of Ujosc squabbles which are inevitable when the loose organisation of a democracy bumps up against the completely regimented phdlanx of a c!ictatorshii>. But it is rather instructive. The American government has no control at all over American mayors; the German government lias complete and absolute control over German newspaper editors. There lies the •contrast. Under our system, a mayor can say; ViW,l3, (AUK,); coURUit mm and do 'anything he pleases without, accounting to Washington for jug acts, lie can make votes for hi'n\self by riling (he feelings of a friendly pa- lion, as Mnygr UGuardia is now dohur ai)<l as Bip J)ill Thompson once did in Chicitgp with'his threats to punch King George of England in the nose. It menus nothing at, all. Under the other system, an editor says nothing whatever without the approval of the centra] goverument. Hjs lightest word reflects the feeN ing of hjs overlord. If he spouts fishwife :abuse, JIQ simply rnirrors the jnculality of the people on loj>. Each system lias it? defects. But can any Amor/can doubt that the system of no control at all is a lot easier, to live niftier than the system of too xuuch control? The Old "Come Qn"? Kver since the World War ended, sat) 'disillusionment has been the lot of America. Immediately after the "war to end wars," for instance, foreign nations began to hatch another imbroglio. America has-had'-to whistle for most of the/nwney it,• loaned abroad, jn addition, it has had .to Ijatew to numerous ^-overseas ' contentions that the United. Slates played a minor role in the .lyinijiiijr; of -.the great war. Suddenly, liowcver, we are beginning to learn, that debtor nations are considering paying olf, and to find out —as Lord Lothian expressed himself in the House of Lords the other clay- that ,Britain .could not have emerged rictor from the World War without Uncle, Srtm's aid. Honeyed woids, these, but are they sincere? Or arc they just part of a. campaign to cement tattered bonds of Anglo-Apiei-ican ijmlerstHtAhng, and to luro Uncle Sam back into his role of 101748?

While many industries have had engineers in the section. making tests, the first step was the beginning of a carbon making factory near this Grant County hainlel.

The carbon black plant will'be small at the start, but the architect's plan provides for additions Borger, Tc.v., is reported lo be llic nearest site of a carbon black company. Carbon black is made by burning natural gas. It is used principally in toughening rubber, but also is important In the manufacture of printing inks, paints, dyes, carbon paper -and- other -products.•' The coliunbln carbon Company of New York is installing the plant on an 80-acrc site.
