H is a |u-iinc .cause of incntai and K|iirilual deterioration. Its ill cITccls iii'on men and women who have not the necessity of working for a' living avo wdl known. H is not ratsunablu to hwiK- ine them any Jess serious when the idleness i.s the result of compulsion raj-her than of desire', and accompanied by privation rather than a pluiili- ful- supply of unearned funds. Kvery able; bodied adult person ought to earn what he (or she) gets. The objection ta a dole us n premium upon idleness is well taken. But i(. is an evasion of the L-sue. This country, particularly in its .largo industrial .centers, is faced with a condition that _ remedy. lOven those now snmulliing, appimiinalinj; a tiole would be willing to admit, wo imagine, thai the dole i. s not tin; best and. is pD.ssiJjly about the worst remedy for the condition. Hut it is bullep than nothing, which is all that its foes have offered as an allevnulive. \Vhtn it bpcnmes evident, as it will if present indu.sfi'ial rnmlilioii.s cojjtimiu much longer, that the choice is between a dole and atarviition, this country will decide in favor of the former. That would bu a national disaster, but it is coming tmlc.s.s conditions change fufl'idtnUy to unalilu the millions of men and women now without employment to cifrn ;\ living. No bread without, work is a stood ride, but it can only he applied when there is work to be had. Two Men From Japan World problems today arc calling, a.s never before, (or iliw thinking. Among the tilings that must be reexamined are some of our oldest and most cherished emotional and intellectual standards. Keceiit iitH'.s from lh« Ork-nt, for instance, sets one to mu-ing about two eminent Japanese—Dr. liideyo Noguchi, ami Admiral Koh-lii Kliiosawa. Dr. Noguchi is dead, lie gave up bis life- in Al'rim 'while pursuing his world-famous study of tropical diseases; but Ijefori: lie died lie had served humanity about H.S well a* any other man of his century, lie attacked yellow fever, sleeping sickness and other plagues with lhi< selfless and heroic skill of a grout scientist. A great ninny men—AmericfiMK, frenchmen, Germans, Knglishmen, Japanese, native Africans—are going to live longer because of his work. l''i»' ny years to come the-work lie did will go on .saving lives. ' All nationalities and all races benefit. Admiral Shiosawa commanded (he Japanese lied that bombarded .Shanghai. Shells; bombs and machine gun bullets, at his command, ripped through llir; house,.* there and killed scores, hundreds—no one knows just how many. He spread death wilh a lavish and relentless hand. Hi* bombarding]I created alarm in such faraway places as London and Washington. Now this, of course, is not to say that Dr. iS'oguclii was a belter man than Admiral Shiosawa. Mravery, fidelity and devotion were possessed by each. ICach one did his duty as he K«W it and did it nnhesilulingly and thoroughly. Hut if does shed a revealing light on the causes the two men served. The physician served Immunity as a whole; the sailor served his own nation. Never was (he contrast between the fruits of nationalism and internationalism more strikingly exhibited. Isn't it, perhaps, about finiu flint we re-examined Ilia concept of nationalism?
