Conducted by military men. but not militarized, they have salvaged btranded and helpless young men, given them health and training, and by their work accomplished much of permanent value to the country. Now an extension is suggested. Large numbers of CCC youths would be adapted to a special branch of national defense, in connection with the new rearmament plan.

This would be done under military direction but the boys would noi need to be militarized. "Under this plan," writes Arthur Krock in the New York Times, "the govern ment would set up schools beside the private airplane manufacturing plants, anc man these schools with hal: the membership of the CCC or as many as have apti< tude for and express inter est in becoming aviation mechanics. The boys wouk go to these schools for sev eral 'years, and those who survived the stiff course •would be formally gradu ated. They would- then man the privately operated airplane plants and also be employed in the air estab Hshments of the federa military forces. The course planned for them is such .that, when they have completed it, any of these young CCC men could—given the materials — build an airplane, make it ready foi flight, fly it and repair it. A few years ago any such suggestion might have been regarded with suspicion and disapproval. Now there are probably millions of young fellows who would jump al the chance of^such a career. NEIGHBORLY LOANS There is a good deal of talk, all at once, about lending money again to Latin-America. That investment field has been ignored for some years, because too much Yankee money sent south never came back. Such caution meant sounder banking, but had a discouraging effect on ,rade. The Central and South American .countries generally expect long credit on purchases and easy terms on loans, and tend to buy from countries that accommodate them. They mostly like our goods, but competition from exporting countries is keen. It is something for a country like ours, bursting with producing and exporting power, to think about. Accordingly our state and treasury departments are said to be "earnestly studying" the situation to see what can be done. The idea of fertilizing that Latin-American market with public loans from our government seems to be seriously considered. It might ,3iot only stimulate buying power there, but also stabilize their currency and public finance. We already have in existence an Export- Import Bank through which such activities might be carried on, with authority from Congress. .It may be well, though, to go a bit slow in that direction. We might get heavily involved, financially, governmentally and politically, BO that our lasir fix would be worse than our HITLER'S CRUCIAL MOMENT Our government, after severely condemning the religious persecution in Germany, has been rather silent about it lately, confining its efforts to promoting the exodus of the Jews. Washington comment suggests a logical reason for this change. The administration is said to feel that the Nazi leaders have been severely jolted by foreign criticism, and that if they are not pushed too hard, Hitler may order that milder methods be used. There is no question that the ruling group in Germany is determined to get rid of the Jews, and in the process to strip them of their possessions. But ob- viouly it is far better for the German government, and for all Germans the world over, to do this without such unnecessary cruelty as has been practiced so far. The apparent joy with which the Nazi government has robbed and tortured the Geman Jews has enraged humane people of every race and shamed the normal German of this and other lands. There can be, of course, no kindness in an implacable determination to exile, root and banch, a national minority of long standing in any counti'y. But surely the process can be made less barbarous than it has been so far. This may be the crucial moment for German Nazism. Its own survival may depend rfot on following up the hideous cruelties it has been practicing on its Jewish citizens, but in letting the Jews go in peace, as evidence that the Nazis themselves are civilized. RURAL KALEIDOSCOPE An authority in the Census Bureau believes that the next count will show a farm population in the United States in 1940 almost the sam.e in net numbers as that of 1930. It will not be the same in certain other respects. Far from being stationary, the farm population during the last eight years has been in a state of continual change which has not yet ceased. In the early part of the decade many farm people moved into the towns and cities. Later people began going back to the farms. Those counter-migrations have been nearly equal. There have been other movments, ou£ of the dust bowl of the Southwest, out of the Appalachian hills in the East, and so on. Some of this has been a shift made by the people themselves in an effort to better their conditions, but often landing them in distant "rural slums" as bad as what they left. Some of it has been government resettle ment, with financial aid, new equipment and special training for settlers, such as the Matanuska colony in Alaska and in various places within the United States. Still another feature of the varying farm scene is the city-farm combination in which many families now live near cities, work in the city, and "farm" only enough to supplement their incomes with home garden- ng and poultry raising. 7hese suburbanites at present are classed as part of the rural population. They io\v form so large a .group HOW TO IMPROVE OUR RELATIONS WITH LATIN AMERICA |T- BUT THIS STEAK \S SO X TOUGH "tou CAK-T STICK S rue IOTA! BANANAS *C« BREAKFAST tHlf>»V< OT OliR. GOOD first. It is better if such a service, when desirable, can be performed by private lending agencies. MEDICAL CO-OPS "Socialized medicine," as some have been calling it, in the District of Columbia and elsewhere, is not an at- tracive term, nor an accurate one. The fact signified, which is regular medical service by a salaried staff of physicians to a subscribing group of patients, is becoming popular in the country, as it has long been in other capitalist countries. It is a form of the 'co-operative movement, already applied to many other forms of group buying and selling under private capitalism. What this amounts to, its purely medical aspects, is a sort of sickness insurance, guaranteeing medical care within specified limits for a definite monthly, fee, and likewise guaranteeing steady employment and regular income for the physicians concerned. Millions of Americans have already avail- themselves of quch services, under one name or another, and the practice is growing. It is not evident that there has been much propaganda behind this movement. It seems to have arisen as a natural thing. Medical coops .were bound to develop, in a highly experimental age, among people of small or fixed income needing medical care, and doctors preferring salaries to an irregular and perhaps inadequate income. The usual result of such arrangements, where they are well managed, seems to be more work for doctors and hospitals and better care for patients. The dictator now demanding some choice cuts of France and northern Africa is the same fellow who said a couple of years ago that Italy was "entirely appeased and had no more demands to make." It's discouraging to realize that, with all our talk of Pan-Americanism, South Americans don!t ordinarily pay any more attention to North Americans than North Americans do to South Americans. Another echo of Mr. Chamberlain's wonde r f u 1 "Peace of Munich"—Czechoslovakia itself goes totalitarian. And now John Bull begins to snort u little. -+• New York is tearing down Jts ancient Sixth Avenue Elevated, and that's a blessing to eyes and ears; but it just puts more people underground. that the census bureau may have to make a third classification for them, in order to keep the statistics accurate and useful. BUSINESS PROPHECY Roger Babson, the' father of business statistics, in a public address says American buiness conditions will be favorable for the next two years. After that, he thinks, the trend will be downward, and can only lead to "inflation, revolution or a change of heart on the part of the American people." This "change of heart" is a favorite theme of Mr. Babson's, and though it is an odd side-line for a hardheaded statistician, there may be somtehing in it. The moral chart may be as important as the charts of pro duction, sales, consumption, and so on. Indeed, the latter factors just might be dominated by the morality curve, strange as it sounds in these materialistic times. Babson isn't the first prophet who has said that righteousness profiteth a nation. Be that as it may, here we have the statistical veteran telling young people to think less of stocks and bonds, and invest in "character, health and technical skill," in large families and small holdings of land in the country, in a revival of religion and a different attitude toward life from that which has prevailed in the last decade or two. And here is a surprise, "There is more religion in Wall Street today," he says, "than in any other section of New- York, and certainly than in the western part of the country. Why? Because they have been through the purge." And they are no longer, like most of us, trying to "ride in the cart rather than help pull it." TWO KINDS 0/WEALTH "The significant thing about Tibet," says a student of that strange land's learning and philosophy, "is its goal or end, because from top to bottom everybody looks forward to spiritual wealth instead of material wealth." Such a goal would mean the end of western capitalism, probably, yet even capitalism could stand the development of keener interest in spiritual - wealth. Certain critics of contemporary life in America attributes some of its troubles to the fact that people have lost such wealth—religion, phiiisophy, appreciation of the homely virtues of honesty and kindness, and so on. Perhaps we may come e y.entually to a combination ot the two ideals, with the sanitation, and comfort of the one 'added to but not contaminating the spiritual wealth of the other.
