Historic Final Wlicn Secrcliiry of I lie Navy Swiin- sbn recently sinned ;m order directing the serappinc "T ^ over-iise destroyers, lie closed the ciireers <>( some rather historic vessels. ' For among these 17 ob.-'oletc warships were liv.u which mice played a spectacular role. They were the lirst American -feining ships In enter (he European war zone, and play mi arlive part in il, after the United Stales, declare;! war mi Germany. This country had heen in the war oi)ly a few weeks when that little destroyer flotilla reaeheil an Kiiylish port. They were the lirst visible, tangible siyn of American participation in the conflict; as such, they bore significance inlinitely greater than thai of any other ships in our whole navy- And now they're soiiiu out of existence—the destroyers Conyuhain, Porter, McDoiutal, Wainwrijcht and Davis. Their pussinc is 11 reminder of a historic event. Problem in 'High' Finance The ins and out:; of hit'li-pressure financial deals are tilings nobody but an expert can understand; but some of the aspects of (heir mystery are positively exasperating in their deep incomprehensibility. For .instance; the Federal. Trade Commission is told that fin-en power companies in I ho southwest, tied up somewhere in the Insnll chain, coin- milled fantastic inflationary skullduggery back in the palmy days before Ihe Insull crash. All told, it is charged, these linns inflated their values by ?20,00(),000, paying vast unearned slock dividends and boosting rates sky-high on Ihe basis of fictitious, valuations. Now what, we untutored folk who stand on the outside can't fathom is simply this: what was the point of all this phenagling, seeing that the Instill chain eventually foundered anyway? The public was taken for $20,000,000, on this particular deal—but it didn't even prolil the gang that did the taking. There's some point to putting over a fast one, if yon make money thereby; hut when insiders wind up b;ick of the eight hall too, what's it all about? OUT OUK Still Going Up DuspKc the turbulence mill Wiislc of strikes, the country seems to lie con- limiiiif to niukc progress on the lung, uphill road back to prosperity. For instance: uirloadiiitf.s of revenue freight for the week ewlint? July M totaled 002,778 uirs, » rise of 8^,071 tars above the week before. Among the loiidings to inei'uusu weri! those ol grain, ore, coke, coal, livestock and miscellaneous freight. According to the census btireitu, mure than 31,1)00,000 cotton spindles were, operating on June M, compared with less limn 2G,OOU,000 in May. The wholesale commodity price index rose in June to the highest level since April, 19,'il, farm products leading fhe way with a C pur cent rise over the levels for May. Solid, encouraging indications, all of them- There's a long and weary way to go, to he sure—but we do .seem ID Ijt" on our way in spile of uvery- Ihing. Enjorced Enthusiasm One of the surpi-isinjc things about the Cenniin situation lias been the whole-hearted way in which the people of Germany turn out to greet Ilerr Hitler whenever lie makes.a public appearance. Oiriiaiiil, one would suppose that that rrfU'ctcil an immense personal popular- ily. 13ul a lawsuit in a. H«rlin "labor court" recently Id a fairly sizable cat out of the bag. Oi'lain workers in a Herlin fac- lory were lired because they hail re- I'tiM'd tn march under a boiling sun to hear Hitler speak at a big Nani demonstration on May 1. They sued for reinstatement. But the court held that (lie. law rciiuired workers to join in such dciiionstrations, a'nd that refusal to join constituted a breach of duty to the nation. So flic apjwal was denied, and the workers stayed lired. The. vast size of those crowds is a little easier to understand, now.
