Y,, were Sunday DAY AT C A P I T A L AS I N T E R P R E T E D BY DAVID (LAWRENCE Continued from Page Four, is engaged in the Mediterranean or even In Atlantic operations, the United States might find itself at that very moment involved in protecting the Pacific when, as a matter ot fact, American warships would be more than ever necessary for protection in the Atlantic. During the World War, the United States fleet was concentrated in the Atlantic even before 1917. It was the logical place for protection because, when a war is going on among nations bordering the Atlantic, it is essential that American warships be on the alert lest the belligerent powers take undue liberties with neutraj shipping. Unless, therefore, the United States is ready to pay the price of complete stoppage of all commercial trade, to- eluding the exchange of goods between North and South America, thus abandoning the sea tb whatever navy happens to be operating therein, the chances are the American people would want our Navy to police the Atlantic effectively, if for no other reason than to prevent incidents that might lead to our involvement in the war. To be on the safe side--that is, to be able to hold our own irrespective of any temporary aid that Britain's navy might extend us--means building up the American navy to the largest strength of any navy in the world. To insure peace--and that means constructing a potential fighting force to scare off any attack--the President is ready to sec a sizeable fleet In both the Atlantic and Pacific. He has not said he wants to double the present navy, but that is the .logical outcome of our policy of isolation and non-cooperation with other powers. The peace groups will insist that to build a navy is to provoke war. Maybe they ore right in many instances that this is a possible result. But, when dealing with the Japanese, they may be wrong.

C. Shaffer. The Maccabees held n meeting Tuesday evening in Odd Fellows Hall. Mrs. S. T. Downs is slowly improving from a long period of poor . health. H. C.

Flanigan were recent visitors with the former's ils- ter, Mrs. Orville Burnworth. language the Japanese understand is the language of force and n spirit of fatalism which makes human life to them the cheapest and most abundant form of sacrifice. Such a nation as the Japanese, ruled by the iron hand of a military despotism, would not hesitate to make an overnight attack without n formal declaration of war and would not care what previous understandings were reached to limit armament. This is a sad and tragic state of affairs, but to ignore it is to be without realism in 1838. The alternative - policy--making working arrangements with the British and French navies and forging broad programs of economic cooperation among the democracies ot the world to protect themselves against the Fascist and despotically governed nations--is apparently not wanted by the American people, or at least by a substantial part of the Republican party and by a very sizeable segment of the Democratic p.irty. International cooperation is being frowned on by almost everybody here but Secretary Hull, and the price of isolation and high tariffs is, therefore, a bigger and better navy, the most expensive navy In the world, but nevertheless, in the view of the President, the most effective way to tell Japan that, when it comes to looking around nt world conditions today, a phrase which President Wilson once used is back again into vogue. It is "force without itint" as a means of making pacifism or non-war effective.
