AY been disbany the the able Established 1912. the This Week by ARTHUR BRISBANE Forget Bad News Hatred of Religion Beer Is Here 17,000,000 New Babies The usual run of news includes the bad news published in the New York American, that the Democratic administration will try to force the United States into the World Court. President Roosevelt should prevent that. Thus far he has not indicated that he needs anybody in Europe or any foreign court to tell him what to do. The World Court ie a back door CO the League of Nations.

Japan, with good sense, has just walked out the front door. It would seem rather weak and feeble for this country to creep into the back door now. If we go into the League of Na tions we shall be more or less subject to judges appointed by foreign countries, outnumbering us. ten to one. And we know now what their judgment would- be in matters affecting the United States.

They have already decided that while they owe us billions of dollars, they ought not to pay them, and that we should be ashamed to ask for them. Any administration, or nation that would put this country, or anything concerning. it, at the mercy of judges appointed by the defaulting nations of Europe would deserve whatever might happen. And what would happen would not be pleasant for those responsible. The "Central Union of German Citizens of the Jewish Faith," which includes 60,000 Jews living in Germany, issues denials of reports of Jewish persecutions under Chancellor Hitler's dictatorship.

such reports are pure invention." That statement must be taken seriously since the "Central Union" represents the Jewish people in Germany, and it will relieve many, but some will recall the letter written by "Abe Kabibble," interesting little creation of Harry Hershfield's imagination. Interned in a German prison camp during the war, Abe Kabibble wrote to his friend in America: "We are treated tine here, swell food, every convenience and luxury, nothing but kindness." A postscript said: was shot for complaining." The anti-religious outbreaks that came almost simultaneously in Mexico, Spain. Russia, and some other countries, continued with violence, in Spain, where the government has turned apparently completely against the established rights of the Catholic Church. The Cortes gives final approval to the seizure of all Catholic Church property in Spain, a confiscation amounting to at least five hundred million dollars. The bill was signed by President Zamora last December.

Its final approval does away with all hope of avoiding the confiscation.

Greater GREATER OREGON, FEDERAL MONEY MAY BUILD ROAD Nine and a Half Miles of Road to Quartzville Put on Cascade -Map; Project Approved, Supervisor Perry A. Thompson of the Cascade National forest has placed the uncompleted portion of the Quartzville road on the forest map and it is quite possible that the project will be approved and work started just as soon as the weather will permit.

This good news regarding this much talked of road was brought. to Albany and delivered personally by Mr. Thompson and Engineer O1- son to the Linn county court. The road was inspected personally by Mr. Thompson and Mr.

Olson. The supervisor asked the county court to maintain the completed portion of the road so that it will be available for transporting men, machinery and supplies to the project in case it gets under way. Some years ago Mr. Buck approved a program whereby the forest service would build the last five miles of the road, but the offer was never taken advan age of, as. residents of the then special road district which was providing half of the funds refused to levy a special tax after the offer was made.

Supervisor Thompson and Enginear Olson praised the completed portion of the road, saying that it compared very favorably with the forest development roads which the forest service is constructing. When district forester C. J. Black returns from Washington D. C.
