ANDREW "HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY' Three hundred years ago Cervantes wrote that "honesty is the best policy". English colonists were, at the time, making honest and heroic efforts to make homes for themselves in the Virginia and Massachusetts ·wildernesses. From the beginning the major problem in the New World has been the distribution of the land. Millions upon millions of settlers have landed on our shores from foreign countries; first from the British Isles and Scandinavia. Later on other European nationalities swarmed among us. Following the Civil War the distribution of the land was conducted on the theory that Uncle Sam would give free-homes to all, and Uncle Sam never went back on a homesteader. Americans are free in criticism of their own government, but they never have had occasion to face a proposition for a "redistribution of the land," without pay. Isn't it the "redistribution" of the land that now threatens the peace of Europe? The same "redistribution" of the land has brought about many a crisis in Latin-America. Mexico has seized 10 million dollars worth of farm land owned by citizens of the United States. Our Government has had Canadian boundary disputes--but they have been settled by peaceful arbitration. The age-old principle that "honesty is the best policy" has been part of onr Nation's religion. The exciting interest in the European crisis is diverting attention from the Mexican situation. It is a strange coincidence that Germany and Mexico have become rough and disorderly again at the same time--just as German intrigue on this continent centered in Mexico during the World War. It is impossible to overlook the fact that Germany demands territory that belongs to the most progressive Republic that ever has been established in Europe while Mexico has seized farm lands and vast wealth moment, the figures indicate that the "recession" is definitely on the wane. No one looks for even anything resembling a boom such as that occurring at the end of 1936, which ran half-way through 1937 and exploded. The expectation is for steady, non- dramatic betterment in practically every line of industry and commerce. Here is the situation obtaining on a number of basic lines now: STEEL: Recently touched 44 per cent of capacity--about twice the level obtaining in early July. During eight or nine consecutive weeks for which this column has data, improvement was registered. MOTORS: Lately hit its low production point of the year, which is entirely normal, as it will not he long until the new models begin streaming off the assembly lines. By the time this is read, production should be at a good level, and increasing rapidly. Reports of what the new cars will be like are conflicting. It has been generally reported that there will be little change in most makes; more recently, rumor says that manufacturers are now planning more ambitious experiments and improvements. CONSTRUCTION: Non-residential building is still down. Residential building, on the other hand, is well up, and is rising. In August, this kind of construction was 18 per cent ahead of last year. Big factor is the plan, under which a builder may obtain as much as 90 per cent of his house and lot's value and take up to 25 years to pay it off. ELECTRIC POWER: This reliable barometer of industrial affairs in general shows strength. The summer decline was not more than seasonal in intensity. And the fall and winter outlook is good. RAILROADS: Car loadings have been up a little, but not enough to deep scores of lines out of the red. The industry is tied up in wage negotiations, which have been complicated by the brotherhoods' refusal to accept federal mediation of the managements' request for a general 15 per cent wage cut. A great deal of pressure is being brought from many quarters to have Congress take up out the peninsula with regard to th possible legislation to save the industry, as soon as the next session opens. Summing up, sentiment as a whole is now bullish. But keep your eye on Europe--what happens there could constitutes due notice to Mexico thnt the Lima conference will be urged lo condemn the present outlaw policy of Mexico. That seems to be the way that a "complete integrated peace mechanism" can be made workable in the nations of the New World.-J. E. J. THE METHODIST MERGER Recent developments, Gays the Journal-Evcry Evening, "indicate success of the movement to merge the 1 thjee branches of the Methodist Church. A unification commission representing the three denominations, which held meetings recently in Ocean Grove, N. J., is understood to have made a scries of recommendations as a basis for the proposed union. "If this commission is in agreement on all points involved, its recommendations should have great weight when it comes to casting the die finally. The commission comprised 25 delegates representing the Methodist Episcopal Church, the Methodist Episcopal Church South, and the Methodist Protestant Church. "As a ba-is for its recommendations it considered evangelistic work, foreign and home mission*, church extension, hospitals, temperance, and social service. All of these arc vital factors in the program of Methodism generally, as well as of other denominations. It should not be difficult to reach agreement as to the most effective way of handling each of these subjects. They are basic activities. "When it comes to administrative policies, while there are differences, these doubtless can be reconciled and a common plan agreed upon. The Methodist Episcopal Church South re suited from differences between th North and South which brought o the Civil War. In principle, however it is much like the Methodist Epis copal Church. The business policy o the Methodist Protestant Church--th governing program--differs from tha of the other two. "As each denomination is largely represented in Delaware and on th Eastern Shores of Maryland and Vir ginia, there is great interest through known program is to be supplemented through cooperation by the Goodyear Tire Rubber Company, with a fifteen-minute daily sectional prp- gram giving informaiton of vital local impui-tance, including regional weather forecasts, shipping advice, commodity prices, sectional crop conditions and other such items. The result will be a specialized national and local information service of vast importance to American fnimura. These localized sectional broadcasts will be furnished to furmcri- living between the Atlantic Ocean and the Rocky Mountains, and from Texas and the Ohio River to Canada, over a total of approximately 48 stations of the Blue necwoik of the 1 National Broadcasting Company. Assurances are given by the National Broadcasting Companj that the National Farm nnd Home Hour w.ll be greatly strengthened through the addition of these Goodyear sectional broadcast). PRINTING FOR ALL Printing is more widely used today than ever before, but like many of the indispensable aids to modern living we are in the habit of taking it for gianted, somewhat like the air we breathe. But there is printing and printing. A printing press is an inanimate thing than can turn out an ordinary or extraordinary product, upon the rkill of the operator. Poor printing, although it may be lower in price, is the least economical to buy. change the overnight. outlook tremendously Hitler and Goering made big news with their speeches at Nurnberg, in which they defied the world and as much as served notice on other powers that they plan to go ahead with their plans regarding Czechoslovakia. Bigger news, which was not anticipated, was made by England. Apparently the Chamberlain government has been forced to abandon its peace- at-any-price policy. England has made up her mind that Germany has gone far enough--and she will fight on the side of France if Czechoslovakia is invaded. That is what Ambassador Sir Neville Henderson told German Foreign Minister Von Ribbentrop in a historic conference in Berlin. To many, it seems that war is now inevitable--and that it will start soon. No unprejudiced authority, military or economic, thinks the nazis, even if they ally with the fascists, can win. But the nazis apparently think otherwise. That's what makes wars. German plans are said to call for a quick conquest of the Czechs--within 14 days at the outside--before France, England and Russia can move enough troops and supplies to determine the issue. But military experts think the Czechs could hold out for several months without any aid whatsoever. outcome. A merger may mean fewe churches, but it also ought to mcar stronger churches." NOT OUR WAR! IT'S UP TO YOU DIPLOMACY AMONG without even making a pretence of paying the citizens of the United States for their property. Germany and Mexico need to learn that "honesty is the best policy" among Nations. ECONOMIC HIGHLIGHTS The business outlook, so far as the domestic picture is concerned, remains good. If only our own internal problems were involved, it seems evident that this recovery movement ·would continue, at least for the next six or eight months, and that security prices would tend upward accordingly. However, there is an extremely large fly in the ointment--the European situation. That was vividly demonstrated in the week ending September 10. Industrial statistics were encouraging, there were no unusual or unlooked-for political complications, and the stage was set for a sustained rise in security prices. But prices sagged, and the week as a whole was disappointing on all counts--principally because of, the fears of war. It seems unlikely that this fear can'be dissipated in the near future. Even if war does not occur before the end of this year--and, according to the experts, the chances are better than even that it will--the shadow of Mara will still darken the economic skies. Thus, it is to Europe, rather than to this country, that the student moat look principally for evidence in AMERICAN REPUBLICS Arrangements are being perfected to hold the eighth conference of the American Republics at Lima, Peru, on December 9. Chief Laurance Duggan of the division of the American Republics of the U. S. State Department indicated in a nation-wide address over the Washington Evening Star station that an attempt would be made at Lima to secure a "complete integrated peace mechanism" for Pan-America "whether embodied in one treaty or several." Secretary of State Hull expects to attend the Conference, and in accepting the invitation he expressed the belief that "the American people still have an abiding faith in the Americas," and added: "There is an imperative need to maintain unimpaired the American system. This cannot be done by any one nation but only through cooperation and friendly collaboration of all the American Republics." The new technique in American diplomacy count;- its recent victories in the successful settlements of boundary difficulties between Bolivia and Paraguay, Honduras and Nicaragua. Ecuador and Peru, and Argentina and Chile. To carry it through our Secretary of State has been exercising the patience of Job with the Cardenas government of Mexico in spite of the fact that the Congress of that country this month has met in joint session to honor--and apparently to "bait" an international labor group Parroting the phrase "that if thor is a war we'll have to go in" is the worst kind of psychology. That jum bio of words had more to do with defeating the efforts to "keep us ou of war" than anything else, writes J. E. Jones, who has been a Wash ington correspondent for more than a quarter of a century. Those who live in Washington, he says, know how responsive the lead ers of Government are to war propaganda, and war sentiment. In 1917 an apparently unwilling President Cabinet and Congress suddenly threw aside all restraint and caution, anc acted like a pack of enthusiasts going into a football game. It was just as simple and silly, and tragic as that. So, YOU watch your tongue and don't contribute to another war- craze in our country. In 1914 the diplomats wrote to one another, and waited days and weeks for answers. That was fatal. Now the British Prime Minister telephones in every direction, and then hops a plane and goes to see the mad Hitler. Science and progress have furnished such devices of peace to prevent war. Chamberlain acted in terms of today. It was a tremendous difference from the old way. The writer of this article understands the way the Capital moves. He believes that if the people remain sanely-loyal to American views of peace that they will hold in their own hands a certain checkmate upon any public official who would attempt to rush the United States into "the next war." MOTORISTS CAN PREVENT THIS! Now that Fall rains are adding to tho perplexities of the traffic problem, the Keystone Automobile Club comes along with a timely bit of advice. Good printing, done with modern tpc expertly composed and on excellent paper, is always worth the slight additional cost. The business firm or individual who uses good printing is advertising good tai-te and intelligence. Both arc assets that cannot be prized too highly. Good piinting requires architecture as well ns press work. Consult us now about that job you know you will need this fall. An extra week or two in its preparation will add nothing to the bill, but it will enable us to do our utmci-.t to please you. Printing can be done, in a matter of hours or minutes when necessary, but when speed is not all-important a better product can be produced if time is not pressing. The advertising potentialities of printing cannot be over-estimated. Its invention was the greatest forward step so far taken by Man. IT'S YOUR TOWN Do you ever get tired of your town? Have you ever longed for brighter lights and more people, more noise and bustle? Why not get away for a couple of weeks and satisfy the longing? Don't moke the mistake of soiling out and packing up the household goods before you go. Just hop in the family bus and look around where you figure you can "do better". Study living conditions, cost of keeping your family, schools and check up on tax rates. See how about securing credit at the g tores if you are sick and off of a pay-roll for a few weeks. Fill up on real information, jut find out for you,rt3elf, not believ- ng everything that is told you. Come on back home and figure those costs and the living expenses and conditions in this town. We know the an- wer. You will become a more enthusiastic booster of the home town however, particularize.

Doubtless pome of the reasons the New York Post, after a "careful scrutiny," concluded that this outfit L. considering the launching of a "Little Liberty League," were contained in the formal announcement, which said: "Small business men will pit their w.ll agninbt the ineffectual formula of fie New Deal.

However, Henry Model!, a wel known New York merchant and ex ecutive of the strictly non-politicu Smaller Business Association, was quoted as saying: "They tried to take us in, but we declined to be taken It is political and strictly anti-New Deal. It is subsidized by Big Busine.s and its policies arc those of Big Business." The New York offices of the "Association" identified the head of their metropolitan "chapter" as a produce exchange broker and did nol amplify the list of participants in the program to include a single smnl business man.

They were a part of the expeditionary force which at that time was engaged in bringing a measure of stability to the West Indian republic. Under normal weather conditions in that tropical country it was customary for the marines to take a dip in the Caribbean. Despite the heaVy surf and the unusual roughness of the sea, some of the group ventured into the waves, heedless of any immediate danger. Gerey was watching from the beach, and when two of the swim- mere were some distance from the anticipating what will happen to in- 'doatry and to security values during the remainder of 1938.

The offence of the United States is that our Government has protested against what is called in diplomatic language the "expropriated farm lands of U. S. citizens," but which, in plain English has been labeled by leading newspapers of our country as "deliberate stealing" by the Mexican government. Conferences of the American Republics in recent years have frequently turned-on-the-heat to enforce compliance to the laws of Nations by some of their unruly neighboring "Slow down for that puddle, M Motorist!" urges the Club in rcspons to numerous complaints from pcdes trians whose clothes--not to mentio dispositions--are being ruined by cos cades of dirty water from the wheel of fast moving vehicles. "We realize," said Matthew P Hanlcy, Manager of the Easter Shore Division of the Club, "that is not always possible for motorist to avoid puddles, especially undc adverse driving conditions, but w feel that careful operation will go fa toward minimizing complaints. A ca striking a puddle at 30 miles pe hour will make a much greater splasl than a machine going at more mod crate speed. "There are many considerate mo torists who slow down almost to a stop at approach to puddles when they observe pedestrians within range of the possible splash, but un fortunately there are others who kee] on going, without regard to the con sequnces.

Grasping a line he swam boldly to their assistance and succeeded in bringing them port of the distance back to the shore. With great difficulty he was able to get one of the marine; within reach of his comrades on the beach. Then Gerey, again risked his life to swim back to the second man whom he finally succeeded in rescuing. Gerey's brave act was witnessed by his commanding officer and several of his marine comrades. It was a purely voluntary action on his part, and above and beyond the call to duty. When the facts of this heroic rescue became known Gerey was highly commended by the Commandant of the Marine Corps, and later was awarded a Life-saving Medal of Hon- Waltcr S. Gifford, president of The American Telephone and Telegraph Company, who was awarded the gold medal of the National Institute of Social Sciences, for distinguished service to humanity. The av.ard was in recognition of Mr. Gifford's services "as director of the Council of National Defense; president of the Charity Organization Society of New York; trustee of Johns Hopkins University, General Education Board, Carnegie Institute of Washington; director of the President's Organization on Unemployment Relief; president of The American Telephone and Telegraph Company, the greatest non-governmental organized service in the United States; and as trustee of numerous educational and scientific foundations." In responding to the presentation of the medal, Mr. GifTord said in part: "I like to feel that your award of this medal to me is a recognition that business is an activity which plays an important part in the betterment of mankind, and that a business man, in attending to business, can render distinguished humanitarian service thereby. Those, I understand, arc the activities and qualities for which your awards are made. "I should like to suggest that business men, like others, do not live by bread or material comforts alone and that they, like others, will respond and do their best for the betterment of mankind when their efforts to that end are encouraged. "America's leadership of the world in well-being did not just happen. Neither is it just because of an abundance of natural resources. It is largely because we have made better use of our natural resources. It is because we have kept opportunity open to all. More than anything else it is because of our encouragement to enterprise and to management, produced more often than not from the ranks."

It is not listed among the seasons, yet to many it is as real ns the other four. Never mind too much scientific exactitude or reliance on calendars. Indian Summer is here when it feels like Indian Summer! There are signs, to be sure, like the harvesting of pumpkins, the Me- Intosh, Reds, Grimes Golden, and Northern Spies; haze on the hills, pungent fragrance of wood smoke, reddening of the sumac, silence of airds in the meadow and woodland, warm sun in the quiet midday, but early coolness when it drops behind the hill. And before long, honking squadron? of wild waterfowl will scud southward, and the harvest moon will reign the sky. Long distance telephone calls in the United States during 1937 reached a new peak with a total of about 55,030,000 calls. This was about 4.500,000 more than in any previous year, and 7,450,000 more than in 1036. Teletypewriter service also continued to show steady improvement. There were about 3,550,000 teletypewriter messages in 1037, which was an increase of 638,000 over 193G. A new record was also established for overseas radio-telephone service, when about 59,000 messages were transmitted, exceeding by 19,000 the number sent in 1936, which was the previous high year. During the year service was extended to Damascus, Syria; Bagdad, Iraq; Sofia, Bulgaria; Port au Prince, Haiti; Juneau, Alaska, and to two additional ocean liners. Bell System telephones may now be connected with about 30,000,000 of the world's 39,000,000 telephones, and communication is possible with 72 different countries and localities. Another important achievement of the Long Lines Department of The American Telephone and Telegraph Company in 1937 was the completion of the fourth transcontinental tele, phone line, which provides additional telephone facilities over a new route to the Pacific coast. This project involved a Lig engineering construction job between Amarillo, Tex., and Kingman, Ariz., and added one more route for the constantly increasing telephone traffic between the east and west coasts.

Rice, Poultry Specialist for the University of Maryland Extension Service. Mr. Rice calls attention to experiments by the United States Department of Agriculture which show this combination of pasture and scratch grain started in September will add weight and finish to mature turkeys in plenty of time for the Thanksgiving market. Rye, wheat, kale, vetch, crimson clover, and rape sown in a mixture make excellent pasturage if clover, bluegrass or alfalfa pasture arc not availiable. Either white or yellow corn may be used in the grain mixtures, depending upon the kind of finish desired. Yellow corn fed liberally gives a yellow tinge to turkey skin. The Meaning of Name Bonita The name Bonita, diminutive of the Latin Bona "good," means "good little girl." Bona is not much used but was formerly the name of royal ladies of Italy and Flanders. There was a Queen Bona or Bonne of France many years ago. St. Bonita was French. Bonnie may be a form of Bona or it may be Gaelic. In the latter case it means "pretty." Ape Executed as a Spy One day during the general European war of 1701-1714, a ship was wrecked off the fishing village of West Hartlepool, England, and the sole survivor, an ape, was washed ashore. None of the villagers har 1 ever before seen such a creature, says Collier's Weekly, so the monkey was tried by court-martial, found guilty and hanged--as a French spy. skin remains whiter when white corn is fed, although plenty of green pasture should be available to turkeys fed white corn so that they will have an ample amount of vitamin A that the birds otherwise get from yellow corn. If pasture is not available, mature turkeys may be fattened on regular mash and scratch feed commonly fed to growing turkeys, says Mr. Rice.
