FOUR MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE MARCH 19 FORESEES ERA OF EXPANSION Mussolini Says Plan Part of 60 Year Program for His Country. ROME, March 19. ca)--Premier Benito Mussolini foresees an era of Italian expansion extending steadily despite all obstacles into Asia and Africa. The expansion, n Duce told 5,000 cheering fascists gathered yesterday for the quinquennial assembly of Italian leaders, to be part of a vast 60 year program. There was thunderous applause as Mussolini predicted that the program would give Italy "the primary of the world" in the twenty-first century. Not Conquests. He denied, however, that the expansion would be a "case of territorial counquests. "It is a case of natural expansion tending toward collaboration between Italy and the people of Africa and of the near east. "The historical objectives of Italy are two--Asia and Africa. The south and the east are the cardinal points to awaken the interest and the will of Italians. To the north there is little or nothing for us to do. Neither to the westward, in Eur- opes or beyond the ocean." "Natural Expansion." Despite his assertion that it would be only "natural expansion," however, II Duce'warned against attempts to interfere. "We demand," he said, "that nations which have already arrived in Africa do not block at every step 'Italian expansion"--a. demand sait to have been aimed particularly at France.

After the government makes everything else quit being too cheap, it might try its hand on human life.--Fountain Inn Tribune. An "Extra" Hankerchief That Became a "Regular" By ENOCH A. KOKBM Globc-Giwcttc City Editor One thing 1 have found myself doing ocasionally, and--I suppose a lot of men do the same thing--I come away from home without a handkerchief. I did that very thing a week or two ago and not until I was Bearing the office did I discover that I would have to be making a purchase that morning. I stopped in at one of the Federal avenue clothing stores and encountered a salesman who knew his "quality" so well and manipulated me so tactfully that I almost went up to the proprietor to recommend a raise in his salary. But this young man was not only being a good salesman for the st6re, he was performing a real service for the community. Wanted Inexpensive One. Going up to the counter I made my wants known and added, "I just want an inexpensive b a n dkerchief. It's an extra, you know. Forgot mine when I l e f t t h e house." "Surely" said t h e salesman, -- " b u t e v e n though it is an 'extra 1 I imagine you will want it to be up to the standard of your regular. supply so that it will be one of the family when you later get them all together." This, in effect, was his line of talk. Then he proceeded to show me two or three samples. "This one," he said, "is pure linen throughout and a very good grade at the price. Much better than it would have been possible to buy at that figure a few years ago. This one (naming a little higher price) is linen, too, but of a finer grade and better finish. Notice how closely and firmly it is woven. It will wear for years and years and always launder perfectly. We consider it an even better value." Of course I could see the logic of buying a handkerchief that would be equal in quality to those at home. It might be an "extra" today but it would become a "regular" after the first wash day. I could also see by comparing .the two handkerchiefs that though the first was an excellent value the second was apt to be well worth the extra price. Bought Good One. So I bought number "two" and haven't regretted it. Since then I have thought that if all salesmen were like this one, more persons would sooner learn the advantages of buying "quality" merchandise. For after all, comparison is the best way to help us to see just what we are getting for our money. By looking at different grades of the same article it is much easier for us,to appreciate the different degrees of quality and decide which will best meet our needs. The salesman who follows this method and at the same time knows his merchandise well enough to point out the differences which escape the untrained eye is performing a real service for his patrons.

Impossible to Speak to Dead, Says Griffin in Y.M.C.A. Sermon Speaking at the Y. M. C. A. Sunday night Evangelist R. E. Griffin said one could not talk with the dead, "For the living know that they shall die; but the dead know not anything." Ecu. 9:5. "It is remarkable, 1 ' continued the speaker, "that we say a man knocked unconscious knows nothing, but hit a little harder and he knows anything! The Psalmist David said. 'For in death there is no remembrance of thee: In the grave who shall give thee thanks?' And again 'the dead praise not the Lord neither any that go down into silence--'his thoughts perish.' Ps. 6:5. 115:17, 145:3,4. "Death is explained as a sleep in ;he Scripture. 'And many of them :hat sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake.' Dan. 12:2. Jesus called death a sleep (Jn. 11:11), and the Apostle Paul added, 'for this we say unto you by the word of the Lord :hat we which are alive and remain unto the coming of Hie Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first.' 1 Thess. 4:15,16."
