The newspaper asked: "Do you know that: "In the neighborhood of Eeraun immense iron ore deposits yield 500,000 tons of ore annually. Produce Much Coal "Mines at L-kadno produce two million tons o£ coal annually, at Dofanany two to three million tons of soft coal yearly and at Maer- isch Ostrau eight to ten million tons of hard coal. "One hundred thousand tons of lead and silver are obtained annually at Pribrane. "There are unworked gold deposits in the Moldau river district while mines at Smolstely and Li- baun are producing gold. "Undeveloped water power is capable of producing a billion horsepower, just half of what Germany proper possesses. "Moravia and Bohemia have 11,500,000 acres of forest land. Includes Farm Areas "Bohemia and Moravia raise yearly 15 million double hundredweights of wheat and 60 million double hundredweights of sugar beets. "Thirty per cent of the people are farmers while 40 per cent earn their living in industry." The coal deposits will enable Germany to boost fuel exports. Germany proper already was rich in coal. The iron ore and timber were special boons. Germany is campaigning to conserve wood and to collect scrap iron.

STOCKS DROP 1 TO 5 POINTS Fresh Uneasiness Over European Affairs Touches Off Decline NEW YORK, (IP)--Stocks took one of the worst beatings of the year Friday as fresh uneasiness over European affairs touched off declines of I to more than 5 points. Heavy selling from London put the list down substantially at the opening. A little buying subsequently arrived. Another liquidating wave hit prices after 1 p. m. following the s t a t e m e n t of Undersecretary Sumner Welles, said to have been with the approval of the president, denouncing Germany's occupation of Czecho-SIovakia as "wanton lawlessness" and an act of "arbitrary force." Moderate recoveries were registered before the close. Transfers approximated 1,500,000 shares.

Mathews, Grinnell, the guest speaker at the regular meeting of thte Congregational Churchwomen Thursday afternoon, told about her work as a missionary in China where she lived 14 years. She and her husband, Harold Mathews, formerly of Clear Lake, and their two children came to Iowa last summer on a furlough. Owing to the war in China Mrs. Mathews and the children remained here but it was imperative that Mr. Mathews return to China. The Japanese have invaded the territory where their missionary school is located but they allow an American missionary, AUce Reed, to be superintendent Mrs. Mathews read extracts from a recent letter she received from Miss Reed. She said the Chinese expected to win the war, a belief in which she concurred because the nation was unified and determined in its resistance. The speaker said the missionaries and Americans in China regretted very much the sale by the United States of munitions and oil to the Japanese for this only prolonged the war. She pointed out that if Japan conquered the Chinese it would mean economic disaster for this country on account of their opportunity to undersell the American market. The Rev.
