The laxis and pleasure earn 1111 Tokiu's streets are largely Amerieiin; the .streets carry electric sinus in Ihe American style, there ;{rc typically American movie houses and taxi-dance halls, flappers dress in American -style, business men sip American cocktails before dinner, and any Tukio restaurant can jfive yon a T-bone steak cooked just as an American eook would prepare il. * * * ' This surl of thing is probably Ihc froth on t!ie surface of international relationships, lo be .sure; but a traveler who knew nothing of foreign alVairs would be justified in leaping lo Ihe conclusion that between the United Stales and Japan there was a solid and unbreakable friendship Ibal v no threat of trouble could ever-shatter.' The sad fari, of course, is Dial the reverse is Irue. When \ve lay down a new cruiser, or order a new Heel of bombing planes, we cock one eye in the direction of Tokio, and.the same thing happens over there. In each nation there is an abundance of fear, suspicion, and distrust of the other nation, and in the last few years the situation seems to have become worse instead of better. All of which leads one lo suspect that the whole business of internalional friendship is an illogical and incompre- . hcnsiblc^ And yet this eagerness on the part of the Japanese lo adopt American gadgets, American habits, mid American manners may, iu Ihe long run, prove lo be a powerful and benelicial force. .

A Record Worih Saving Two young artists are starling on a long trip through the mountains of Tennessee, Kentucky and North Carolina. They plan to make a complete pictorial record of Ihe lives and customs of those isolated and fascinating folk, the "mountain whiles," in the belief that thi.s group is a passing race. CIreat changes are beginning in Ihe land, and not least of them is the new development in these southern mountains. The federal government's plans for (he Tennessee valley, its use of subsistence homesteads, its .scheme for industry and tying city and country more closely together •—these things will profoundly alt'ecl the conditions under which the inoun- laineere live. These artists believe that the mountaineer of tradition will soon be living under very different conditions; so tlicy want to make a record of him belore it is too late. , Whether the change will great as they expect, may be question. R is certain thai, something peculiarly and fundamentally American will pass away. I,el us have this pictorial record, by all means. It will preserve the memory of something lhat is deeply rooted in our national life. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Sore Dame Grid Star Taket European Baths SOUTH BEND, !nd.

A family snbsisling on federal relief gets such Ihings as beef, pork and veal roasts, beans, bread and butter, oranges, apples and cheese.

Millions of bushels of wheat, corn, oat:; and barley have been given lo farmers in the drouth areas for starving livestock. Distributing all these Ihings has been very costly, of course, tint it must also have prevented an appalling amount of human misery. "lit 1 likes (lie brainy year my hair?" type.
