BIGHT MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JANUARY 9 1930 WORLD FORECAST FOR 1936 PRESENTED TO WOMAN'S CLUB 1914 Events Comparable to Present Second World War Started in 1931 According to Quincy Howe. "History repeats itself, coming fkrst as tragedy and then as farce,' Quincy Howe, author and editor told the Woman's club in a lecture Wednesday evening in the First Methodist church on "The World Forecast for 1936." "In the twentieth century it has taken just 20 years to bring about a repetition," Mr. Howe said. "The second world war began with Japan's invasion of Manchuria in September of 1931 and has spread to Africa recently. The tragedy of the first world war is clear to everyone. The farce of the second is not so evident. First World War. "The first world war was preceded by false alarms. In 1911 France and Germany nearly went to war over Morocco, a situation comparable to that brought about with the assassination of the chancellor of Austria and King Alexander of Yugo Slavia in 1934. In 1912, the Balkans warred on the Turks and then turned on Bulgaria, fighting among themselves, while the great diplomats boasted that they had succeeded in localizing the trouble. The conditions in Ethiopia offer a present parallel. "Because of the recollection of the last war-to-end-war, statesmen do not yet dare ask nations to embark on another war, and the confidence of nations in 1914 contrasted with their nervousness now. Europe fears war because it means mutiny, strikes and a possible revolution. Challenges Nations. "The Soviet Union, the first working communistic state, stands as a challenge to capitalistic nations, especially Poland and Roumania and is an important element in the discontent in Central Europe. The So.. Viet Union is working to promote a world revolution and while the movement is moderate in Europe, it is intense in Asia. "Imperial Japan, the most modern mechanized nation with the lowest paid laborers has a low standard of living and discontent among its peasants. In the United States, the new deal reform administration is not unlike Woodrow Wilson's new freedom. Asia is more important by - .far than 20 years ago and is the real ^fference between 1914 and 1936. a V Seven World Powers ' 'England, France, Germany. Italy, -J^ihe Soviet Union, Japan and the ^tbjnited States are the seven powers '.. to be considered, a power being a nation which dares to pursue an independent foreign policy and these are the only seven countries able to do this. A nation is able to pursue such a policy because of its fixed assets and material resources, its social stability and its international connections. "Great Britain constitutes one fourth of the earth and one fourth of its population, so that the fate of Great Britain is the fate of the ·world. England has little or no wa- / ter power and no oil supply. Its public health is low, particularly in the depressed areas. It remains dependent on the world. England is afraid of a change anywhere. If Italy won a smashing victory in Ethiopia, its commercial route through the Suez would be threatened. If Ethiopia were to win, the whole colonia world would be encouraged by tbj black race's repelling a white foe. Dilemma in Europe. "In Europe it faces a lik dilemma. Until the rise of Hitler the British foreign policy was to oppose France in favor of Germany Now Germany is likely to force France and England together since England needs to keep the channe free and have a friendly nation on the other side of it. "Jap and Russia are far greater threats to England than Germany Asia is a more dangerous spot. Great Britain has entered an alliance with the United States to protect her interests there. The Baldwin foreign policy is more favorable to the United States than its predecessor. Expects Trouble. "England expects trouble and embarking on a program of rearmament. The prestige of Great Britain will decline and pressure will be brought so that the United States will back the league of nations and support the status quo of Europe. In immediate crisis either Anthony Eden will pursue Hoare's policy in reaching an agreement with Laval and Mussolini or will act against Italy, bringing England to the brink of war. "France is on the spot. The government, headed by Laval, who is backed by bankers and industrialists, will be overthrown by the left party which consists of communists, socialists and radicals. France is more self sufficient than England, but faces an acute financial crisis and a social crisis. If the left bloc wins it will be incapable of govern ing because of disagreement be* tween the parts which make it up. For a Coup d'etat. "The left party is correct in its expectation of gains in the next election. There may be a second attempt at a coup d'etat by the conservatives. If this fails, as it probably will, we may look to see civil war by the end of 1936. The great danger from Germany may be sufficient to hold the country together. "Germany is the best equipped, richest and most populous nation in Europe. Its social stability is enforced and Hitler has it in hand for .he moment. Its two allies are Po- and and Hungary and possibly, Ja;an. Unless something' unforseen lappens, there will be no war in Germany in 1936. Italy is now vhere Germany will be in two ·ears. Italy Bottled Up. "Italy lack's resources and is bot- led up by the Mediterranean and he Alps. The Vatican's being located in Rome, net only' brings' in "money rom the world, but also constitutes a moral authority which might prevent another nation's Bombing the ity. Mussolini is not only threatened with defeat, but it has already ;ome. An alliance between Hitler and Mussolini is unlikely. Mussolini might make a desperate lunge in an air attack on the British fleet. "In Italy we may look to a co- alation between the army, the church, the royal family, Balboa and Grand! and money is being raised at present with that in view. There will e no immediate communist uprising, bat before long it will be shown what happens to the rank and file of fascists. 'Russia covers one-sixth of the earth's surface. It is self sufficient and its population is sparsely scat- '·*! pa tc.

Its technology is low and it has a ower standard of living than other European nations and must continue so. Its lack of social stability indicates that the government is not especially strongly established, but the repression is letting up, while in Germany and Italy it increases. Its' allies are France, possibly Great Britain, and in Asia, the United tates. Its enemies are Japan and Germany. It has the largest and most highly mechanized army in the vorld, but it will not attack any na- ion in 1936. Its foreign policy is a double one with Litvinof playing for he friendship of other nations while he movement for the third interna- ional is continued. "Japan is the most explosive of he seven powers. It has no oil, no rubber and no cotton which it must have. Its social status is none too good. Discontent among the peasants weakens the army. There is almost no middle class and the grow- ng national Marxist movement is a hreat. It will continue its war and jrobably to the south. U. S. Is Richest. 'The United States is the richest country in the world in every sense. We have more civil liberties than any other country. There will be an ncrease of force and opposition to labor from capitalists. Labor, influenced by rising markets and increasing prosperity, will go to the mat against capital. Because of the certainty of Roosevelt's re-election evidenced in the past three years, it is probable that he may not be. The republicans may make use of the Townsend plan to split the democratic ranks. The one way out for Soosevelt is to play the policy of Wilson in 1916, promising to keep the nation out of war. "There will not be war in Europe in 1936. The questions are, will the chief actors play their parts to the end? Will Baldwin, Hoare and Eden bring about an end to the Ethiopian war? Can Hitler out-kaiser the kaiser in Germany? Can Laval and Herriot unite France against Germany? Can Mussolini make Italy a great world power? Europe may continue along the road to war, but at the end of the road lies revolution and chaos. Meanwhile history is being made in Asia. The role of the U. S. becomes increasingly active. Will the 19141917 situation in Europe be repeated in 1936 in Asia with the United States pulling the chestnuts out of the fire in 1937 for the other nations? Willis G. C. Bagley introduced Mr. Howe and Mrs. L. R. Roberts, club president, presided. Questions were isked from the audience following e lecture. Mr. Howe was entertained at dinner at the Euchre and Cycle club by Mr. anrt Mrs. Hartford MacNifier preceding the lecture. --*-Cecelia Otis Weds Francis Hauptmann WESLEY, Jan. 9.--Miss Cecelia Otis, daughter of Mrs. Mary Otis, and Francis Hauptmann, son of Mr. and Mrs. Lou Hauptmann, were married Wednesday morning at the St. Joseph's Catholic church by the Rev.

V- Child Training Authority. Blessed is the child whose parents have poise. How unfortunate if his uarents or one of them is known as "very nervous." And when such a crisis as a nervous breakdown comes! W. B. Wolfe, M. D., director of the Community Church Hygiene clinic. New York City, has written an excellent book, "The Nervous Breakdown." In a sensible way ie discusses the causes, symptoms and cures. If you have a nervous breakdown, You have transgressed the laws of nature," he says. . . . "No one can jit his private opinion against na- :ure and win. Nature has given you a warning signal that you may no onger disregard. The damage is not :oo great to repair. . .' . There is some mistake in your strategy of ife which has brought you into conflict with nature and reality. The warning signal which nature has given you may be annoying, but rou should be happy that you have erceived it. In the face of the jverwhelming evidence of a mistaken strategy of life, the sensible .hing to do is to examine the pattern of your life and discover just what mistakes you have made. The ess time you waste complaining about your symptoms or indulging n orgies of self-pity the better. . . . As soon as you have learned where rou have made your mistake, begin early consciously toward a normal goal. . . . You are not too old nor ;oo weak to begin over again. . . . The fact that you have a nervous breakdown indicates that you have ample uowers of resistance. It isn't .00 late to be normal. "If you think you have a nervous ireakdown, it is your first duty to consult a competent physician, preferably your family doctor, and get a thorough and complete physical examination. If you cannot find any evidence of physical or organic disease, ask your doctor to recommend a reputable psychiatrist." His chapter on "Creative Self-Realization" is exceptionally good. In t he discusses the art of getting along with yourself, of using your eisure, of living in the present; the art of avoiding arguments, of being grown-up and of cultivating a sense 3f humor. And I might add that some persons with nervous, breakdowns Heads Rebekahs Mrs Wayman Closson is the newly installed past noble grand of Queen Rebekah lodge No. 106, taking office at installation ceremonies held in the I. O. 0. F. hall. (Lock Photo--Kayenay Engraving) might get almost immediate relief if they were able to turn their attention from themselves to doing something to help other persons. I have seen some almost magic changes in persons who suddenly grew absorbed in helping a family in distress, or trying to bring cheer to a blind, crippled or bed-ridden person. After all, a great many nervous breakdowns are self-centered persons, even when they fool themselves that they are worrying about some on else. CRESCENT CLUB HAS BOB SLEIGH PARTY Crescent club members met at the Y. W. C. A., Wednesday evening to go on a bob sleigh party, returning to the Y for refreshments and a business session.
