America, The, Country of Inconsistencies AU English visitor not, loiin ago inndi. n three or four weeks' li'ip ;ici'oss v the United States, <im! the things lie saw impressed him so deeply that he had to retire to his study at onco and write a hook. In this book, according lo advance repoits, he expresses his utteriumizc- ment at Ihe contradictions he found in American life. Accustomed to the staid and orderly conditions of England, he was bewildered and a little appalled by what he saw over here. These things being so, his only possible recourse was to turn author and speak his mind about things. It is impossible not to feel a little sympathy for him, because if there ever was a country which it is impossible to understand at a glance it is this America of ours. Some.of us, indeed, have lived in it all our lives and still don't understand it. It is, nil in all, about as amazing a land of contrasts and contradictions as human beings over made. * *•..>:• .', , It is a land which professionalizes college athletes and makes heroes out of prize fighters ami baseball players; it is also a land which produces scientists like Jlillikan and Compton and casts a 200-inch telescope to look at stars that man never saw before. It is the land where the ^dollar is worshiped, but it is also the land which is willing to go seven or eight billion dollars in, the hole in an effort to break- its way cut of a trade depression. It is the land of cheap movies, cheaper radio, and "society leaders" who endorse tooth paste for pay—and it is also the .land Dial produces persons like Jane Addams and gives men like Leopold Stokowski free rein to create heatity. It puts a Iluey Long in its Senate, and then counterbalances him with a Geoige W. Nonis. Jt is the land, of the Limlbeigh kidnaping, but it is also the land which produced Lindbergh himself It is \\oild-famous us a laud of boasters, but for years it has.paid good money lo foieign authors and lecturers to It!! it what is wrong with it, '*.*•* It is the haid-hcarted land of lynuli- jngs, and it is the geiici'ous land which will send millions of dollars to Japanese earthquake victims. It maintains a gigantic mvy nml spends millions on aircraft, but it, is the only nation bravo enough lo expose the chicanery of munitions niami/iicliirers. Yo|i conlti go on like that for an hour. Ifow, indeed, is any foreigner 10 understand such a people? A compound of wisdom and foolishness, of braggadocio nnd humility, of Hli'cnglh and weakness—we can't understand ourselves. We can only sense that we arc a strange people of infinite possibilities, who arc buiklirig a society unlike any other on earth . . . and our saving grace is the fact thai we have the courage and Die Idealism ( 0 insist that 11 shall' alsO;bc better than any other. —liruce Catton. Building Boom Ahead Housing Administrator James A. Mof- fqtt. tells the Middle Atlantic He-tail Lumbermen's Association (hat the housing administration is laying the groundwork, for "such a; revival of building construction as this country has rarely .seen." The results to date have hardly been spectacular,' ami one can only hope that future developments 1 will be of a kind to fulfill Mr, Moffett's prediction. It is certain that full recovery waits on a Hvivnl of the building trades; certain, also, that a tremendous, amount of work is waiting for these trades, if oiily .some way ciin be found of getting it started, Mr. Moffetl warns that we cannot expect too much right i\l first. Ultimately, he is confident, the long-range progfatu to reform methods of home mortgage financing will release a flood of. building 'orders. . : ' " If he is correct, a great reservoir of sates and jobs should presently be tapped. If I hart my way, I'd throw Into jail every dirty cnttliroat who marches under n red or phik fins. —Billy Snniliiy, evnnglOlst. Tliey s (lniior lenders) don't know what labor Is.
