' No Naval Race Needed Aln-ogHlion l>y Japan ,,1' the Wnsli- ingion ;ind, London trciitie.s rc.stricl- ing naval tinutimciiLs need not open the way to n foolish anil expensive naval IniildiiiR race. Japan lift:; not rejected arms limiln- . iion. Sho lias merely annoimcud liev refusal to be Ijonnil l>y a plan of limitation wliicli assiffiiH her a place of inferiority. Hoi- altitude may bo dictated by political consitlcraliuiiH 01- by a desire, for an unrestricted baud in' carrying out her Asiatic policy. In either case it is understandable. We ourselves, would not long endure a .treaty winch forced upon UK : a posi-. lion of inferiorily nor would wu lolur- alc restrictions which .seemed to place us under a handicap in the carry ing lliroinfli ol' what (o u.s appeared to bu an essential part of onr national lioiicy. Japan's national pride made abrogation of the 5-5-3 ratio unavoidable. As a matter of practical domestic politics, if for no other reason, her government was compelled to demand equality. But there are other reasons. : Japan insists upon the power-to do as she likes in eastern Asia. She needs no rrroHl. navy to extend her sway there. But she does need security against a possible combination of the British and American navies/ That is why she suggests that the 5-5-3 agreement be supplanted ' by one drastically curtailing the offensive - strength of all navies, while permitling t)i c development of. strong defensive forces. Why should wo object? We want security. Japan oilers it to us at a relatively low price. Sho !io doubt contemplates further coniinests among the Chinese, the Mongolians and per- Jiaps even the Russians of the far cast. Our sentimental ideals concerning the self-determination of peoples will be outraged, but practically we may bone- It rather than loose. In any case it is certainly not our business to play the role of policeman in the far east. Let Japan keep her hands fnll there, let her fullll her imperial ambitions and achieve her territorial needs in that, section of (ho world. She will then have less occasion lo think about lincl- nig homes for her crowded millions on this side of the Pacific. OUT OUR'WAY the Sidle Clean BLYTHEVILLE (AEK). COURIER NEWS Merchants of Blythoville, in an ad- vorlisomcjit in the Courier News Saturday, invited their customers to wipe the slate clean for 1035 by paying their charge accounts promptly on the lirat day of the year. It is a good . idea, and one from which the 'merchants will not be the only beneficiaries, it is a good thing for debtor as well us. creditor to get all accounts squared. H helps the man who pays as well as the man who gels paid to attack the problems ot the year ahead with confidence. Hut don't let the fact that funds in -sight won't Hlrctch to cover all your obligations stand in the wny of paying what you can. This debt settling business works in a circle. If v you pay what yon can you will help your creditors to pay what they owe. Somewhere along the line the money is likely' lo full into the hands of someone who owes yon. it'll come back and help! yon finish cleaning your slate. Taxpayers May Smile County tax collectors in seven southeast Missouri counties are now receiving (axes for the Little Rivet- Drainage district. Taxpayers of the district, who for a number of years have let much of their land go delinquent, arc noiv paying with a smile, we imagine. At least they have a right to smile. For as a result of » settlement of the district's bonded debt, effected through an K. K. C. loan, the (rrnimige lax in" the district now is less than a third what it was. Where the drainage tax on «n were, for example, used to be ?2.12, it is now GO, cents. The richest land in southeast Missouri has been freed from a burden which had all but smothered it. The way has been opened for development and prosperity.
