Hjalmar Schacht, German miniBter, to London, is one of _ many signs that the economic and financial plight of the Third Reich is getting desperate. This is largely a result of the vast measures taken by the Nazi government for defense and aggression in the last six years. As a result of turning the national strength from normal production to military expansion, the German national debt, low when Hitler assumed power, is now be- lived to be as large as that of the United States, al- thought German resources are a small fraction of ours. Few Germans know it, because the budgets and financial statements are juggled and the facts kept from the public. A secondary 'cause of financial trouble is the loss of foreign trade. This is so alarming lately that the Berlin government has been creating a group of industrial and commercial dictators to promote exports. The records for the present calendar year is expected to show German imports at least $100,000,000 larger than exports. This means a loss in German exchange seriously handicapping domestic finance. The Nazi treasury Is thought to be almost empty of gold, and recent g&ins of territory and commercial penetration eastward have hardly become prdductive yet. In fact, the consolidation of those gains may entail new expense for some time. On top of these other difficulties is a big wave of foreign boycotts, mostly informal but nevertheless effective, coming as a widespread protest against Nazi persecution of the Jews and other minorities. Nazi cruelty is alienating Nazi customers. It is a very natural _reaction. BOMB-PROOF SHELTERS ; It Is disheartening to find the British government getting into an air-raid panic r again, and communicating Its scare to the people, by , announcing that it will pro^ vide them with "millions of V 'backyard bomb - shelters jr}. niade of steel." *' These are fancy improvements on the trenches that Mr, Chamberlain's government had the people digging during the scare t preceding the great Munich ,' prrender to Hitler. The "(shelters are made, in sections and easily put togeth- ^K"" 'You sink them two feet ^ftVlrthe ground, in the back ' " "tti, close to the house, and le the displaced earth on Then when warning is of an air raid, you ^ 1 into them and are uKt$'— provided a bomb 'Pofesn't drop right on you ™''your- fancy hidey-hole. Ve'd suppose, at this dls- ||pe, that such activity rfMld put the English peo- )W into the same unreason- ff terror they were In just fore the famous "Peace ^Munich," which proved jbe ,no peace.

Guest) AMERICA This is America today: A country where the children play; A land of men and women free To speak their thoughts, what- o'er they be, Who need not fear, If voiced rise The tell-tale tongues of tyrant spies. This Is America I sing! A land of gardens In the spring-; Of streams to troll and hills to climb And two weeks, called "vacation time;" A land where men and women find Both self-respect and peace of mind. This Is America: a spot Where ancient hatreds flourish not. A land of merriment and song, Despite whatever may be wrong, Which at Its worst Is better far Than states totalitarian are. ONE STATE'S RIGHTS An agreement made between the State of Vermont and the federal government ends a controversy \yhich had delayed part of the New England flood-control project. Vermont refused to let the government acquire the necessary lands without the state government's consent. The contract now signed will make it possible to go ahead with the work, but on Vermont's terms. The state will first acquire the lands itself. Then the federal government will reimburse it for expenditures "deemed reasonable." After that the government may go ahead with the proposed dam and reservoir at Union Village which are to be part of the Connecticut River project. "We are happy to co-operate to furnish flood-control," says Gov. Aiken, who first challenged Washington's right to act without the state's consent. Co-operation is a fine thing. We have already seen a number of regional agreements in which several states have got together on a mutual problem. Agreements between states and national government may not often be necessary, but they offer a good solution to certain problems involving states rights, or seeming to. AUJO EVOLUTION American automobiles are products of gradual evolution, just as scientists say animals and human beings are. The changes are merely slower, with nature taking maybe a million years for an improvement the automobile g»ts in one year. With next year's cars already as much evoluted as they will ever be, the designers are turning their attention to the 1940 cars. They may show more significant alterations than this 1939 crop. For example: There will be better illumination, not merely in volume but in quality and distribution. Indirect lighting may give a mild glow throughout the interior, and also over the exterior. The purpose would be both useful and artistic. Headlamps may become smaller, using magnifying lenses to compensate. Such accessories as heaters and radios may be "absorbed within the body design," a process already begun. Thus streamlining, already very effective outside the car, will proceed inside. Both front and rear wheels may be entirely enclosed "to give a harmonious effect to body lines." Practical drivers may not like that so well; they usually want their wheels easy to get at in case of tire trouble. Running boards, which have been shrinking for years, may soon vanish, with the doors reaching to the bottom of the body. The present type of radiator grills, some designers say, may disappear altogether, with air reaching the radiator from below. Some of the grills already are mere vestiges of gills, Nothing is said yet about moving the motors to the rear. Jan Masarvk and Edouard Benes are coming to Chicago to lecture on democracy. That's fine, .but their lectures are needed more in London. e of cracfcups LITTLE BOY BLUE SEEING LATIN-AMERICA. The Lima conference showed how important it is for each half of his hemisphere to know how the other half lives. The process is made easier by tourist rates beginning the first of this year on three American steamship lines. There are 50 per cent reductions from regular passenger fares for- students, teachers and professors traveling between the United States ani South America. A British line grants the same reductions. This is, as our state department says, .. "very gratifying development," insuring a greater exchange educated people between these two continents. It would be more to the point, however, if rate reductions could be obtained Americans. for all SMALLNESS.

Suppose, now, that we could apply such a microscope to any particle of the luman body. We might then be able to see a thing so small as the heart ,of a statesman who kills parents n concentration camps be- jause he disapproves of their racial origin, and then shoves their orphan children out of the country with 40 cents in their pockets. INCREASING DIVORCE Research workers at the University of Chicago, studying the nation's divorce and marriage statis- ;ics of the last 15 years, found that 1937 was a boom year for both. There were 11.08 marriages and . 1.98 divorces for every 1,000 persons in 1987. The divorce rate, however, was rising faster than the marriage rate. Such figures by themselves are of little value. They need illumination. Divorces, like crime, continue tq increase because they are rooted in difficulties not clearly understood and problems not faced and solved. Discoveries in th'Js field could be very useful. The American lave agreed, in countries case of ;rouble,~to consult each oth- jr, European countries prefer to insult each other.
