ANDREW A FAITHFUL CONGRESSMAN To have /in influential Congressman to represent you is a great thfng. Probably no Congressman in the United States has accomplished as much for his constituency as has Congressman Goldsborough. This H evidenced by the long list of appropriations for improvements just granted him by the Federal Government. Mr. Goldsborough has been doing this kind of work ever since he has been in Congress. Of course, his influence is greater now than ever, as the long list published today shows. It would be perfectly ridiculous to give his opponent any sizable vote when Mr. Goldsborough is doing so much for his District. He should receive equally a^ large a majority this year as he has received in the past. Mr. Goldsborough is the most ready man in Congress to serve his constituency. Either Democrat or Republican can have his services for the asking. Farmers, Merchants, or Mechanics will find him back of Legislation affecting this section. Recently The Maryland Farm Bureau said of him, "We feel that you have always been a friend of agriculture and a staunch supporter of all measures beneficial to Maryland Farmers." The American Farm Bureau Federation writes to Congressman Goldsborough: "The great work you have done and are doing in monetary legislation in the interest of Agriculture, as well as the public interest, is deeply appreciated by Agricultural cd, was not yet fully realized by the country as a whole." Complete informntion on the pending program it not yet available, und probably will not be for some time to come. But, according to forecasts, it will cause the spending of at least five billion dollars in the next fifteen months. The President contemplates adding one billion dollars to the next budget to take care of part of it. The balance will consist of private spending, plus some nonbudgetcd federal loans to industry. It is stated that the rearmament program will cover every phase of our national defense. Material additions will be made to the navy. The peace-time strength of the army wi!! also be increased. Coast defenses which are now largely obsolete will be revamped with modern weapon? und devices. And, if the generals and admirals have their way, we will proceed to build the world's greatest air force. The military staffs believe that our best defense against aggression is the creation of a military machine second to none in the world. AnJ that, for a country ns large as this, with" borders on the two great oceans, means a navy of unprecedented siza, speed and power, buttressed by thousands of fighting airplanes which will be constantly replaced as they become obsolete--and the life of such a plane is very short indeed. So much for the defense phase of the program. From the economic standpoint, it implies an almost revolutionary change in the Administration's general recovery plan. In the past, the government has placed principal emphasis on aiding) in various ways, the consumers' goods industries. The heavy goods industries, partly as a consequence of this, have been the slowest to respond to favorable trends--and the quickest to react to unfavorable trends. The rearmament program will throw a tremendous volume of business to the heavy industries--cement, steel, copper, lumber, etc. And of equal importance, to quote the AP again, "A fundamental goal will be the removal from WPA payrolls to gainful private employment of a major portion of the unemployed by the end of the period --in 1940." This vast program now being planned by the President and his aides, in company with unnamed big business leaders, will of course have to be approved by Congress before it can become effective. But there seems to be little chance of any slipup there. Senators and Representatives, appalled and dismayed by the spectacle of chaotic, terror-ridden Europe, are eager to do anything possible to make this nation immune to attack either from Europe, or from South America, where nazi influence is steadily gaining--notably in Brazil, largest and richest of the South American republics. Britain's new "understanding" with nazi Germany is in danger of being disrupted by a problem that hasn't been much publicized yet--but will be heard of to a much larger extent in the future. That problem is Germany's usurpation of trade areas that England used to regard as almost her exclusive province. The Reich is as aggressive in its commercial policy as in its bold diplomatic and military policies. As one commentator puts it. "Germany has made no bones about her intentions of dominating the Balkans. The Germans say they intend to dominate from the Baltic sea to the are praiseworthy nnd successful methods of merchandising. But railroad freight rates and charge- have not increased, and today revenue per ton mile is only a fraction of what it was twenty years ago," said Mr. Jeffers. "This problem of distribution concerns Uj all. There is nee'il fur proper government regulation in connection with distribution, but not for goveni- ment control. Control can only result in putting the government in business, the establishment of federal competition with privute enterprise. "We live in a land of plenty--of surpulses in many commodities And still we have millions who are underfed, poorly housed, illy clothed. What a paradox! "Hundreds of millions have been expended for relief in its various forms, and other hundred; of millions to control surpluses through mincing production. "Why not expend these hundreds of millions in distribution of America's products to the far corners of our land--thus enlarging consumption, production, payrolls, reducing relief and finally restoring private industry to the position of absorbing unemployment. "The interests of producers, shippers, railroads and labor, are identical. Only one thing will increase traffic and that is greater consumption, which in turn means greater production. You cannot ship more grain, or potatoes, or anything else, if you decrease production or choke consumption. Only by narrowing distribution costs through volume distribution and consumption is it possible to utilize increased production. And only by working together unselfishly with a mutual appreciation of fair play can that be brought about." FOREIGN ENTANGLEMENTS Political opinion of the United States definitely arrayed itself uguinst "foreign entanglements" in the recent European crises. George Washington bade his countrymen to "beware" of them--and we don't always forget. This new world of ours resemble*; the burnt child that dreaded the fire --and that is the biggest result in favor of pence that the United States got out of the World War. We undoubtedly helped through public opinion, and the pleas of the President, to bring the powers together at Munich. interests everywhere and by the general public." Here you have the evidence that Mr. Goldsborough is a doer. He is unlike many men in official life wjio promise everything and do nothing. He is a doer. Vice-President Garner, Hon. Jesse Jones, Chairman of the Reconstruction Finance Corporation, Hon. M. S. Eckles, Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, Hon. Leo T. Crowley, Chairman Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and many other National officials are loud in their praise of Mr. Goldsborough's work in Congress. The First Congressional District of Maryland never was represented by a man who accomplished more for his district than T. Alan Goldsborough and it should be the pride of our people to send him back by the biggest vote he ever received. Yon will soon find him on the stump urging the election of Tydings, O'Conor and other Democratic Candidates.--Democratic Messenger. Black sea. Worse than that, from the British standpoint, they are making serious inroads into British market; in India, South Africa and Australia." That has already resulted in a loss of untold thousands of pounds in foreign trade to the Empire. It seems inevitable that it will result in much more .serious losses in the future. Such countries as Turkey, Greece, Rumania and Jugoslavia used to buy the great majority of their foreign purchases from Britain. Today they are buying more and more from Germany. One reason is that in some cases Hitler offers extremely favorable terms. An even more potent reason, some say, is that he also gives them to understand that if they don't patronize him they are liable to violent invasion. Anglo-German trade rivalry, in the view of most experts, was one of the main causes of the last world war. Both nation^ attempted to camouflage that fact, and attributed the war to various' opposed causes, but the statistics tell the story. And it is not impossible that Anglo-German trade rivalry could start the next world war. .Relations among the American Republics is a different matter. President James Monroe defined those relations 116 years ago, asserting "as a principle of which the rights and interests of the United States are involved, that the American continents by the free and independent condition which they have assumed and maintain," should be protected. He said that "with the movements in this hemisphere we are of necessity more immediately connected, and by causes which must be obvious to all enlightened and impartial observers." H: told Europe that "the political system of the allied powers is essentially different in this respect from that of America," and we have upheld this doctrine for more than a century. "It was the United States which gave us the structure of our institution, which we copied with small variations," announced Argentina, on a momentous occasion. In expressing the indestructible friendship between the Americas that Republic went on record at Buenos Aires, in declaring: "We must continue to seek in the United States the form of their application, for their practice, for their respect and for their esteem." That in substance comprises the written and declared civilization of the New World. That is why they unite, at the present time in denunciation of those who aid and abet communistic doctrines among cheering, maddening crowds in Mexico, and feel resentful over the proceedings of a recent international gathering in Mexico City, in which hostile sentiment towards the adherence of the United States to its fixed policies and doctrines were defiantly uttered by the foremost leaders in that nation which borders our own. been hammered by investigations nnd prosecutions is assured by one of the Senators of the monopoly investigating committee that he believes "industry believes that the Government is not going to bear down on business", and he added: "It i? a very fine move". As this correspondence leaves Washington the vast audience that rends this weekly editorial will no doubt get comfort out of indications that tlie tension between private bu. - iness and the Government has improved. That should bo "a very fine move", and a blessing to the country. --J. E. J. EDITORIAL NOTES The Old Guard Republican columnists and others in the division of supply were no mnrn helpful with i--ugguslioiiR for G. O. P. state platforms this year than was the official Republican National Platform Committee itself. In fact all of the talent upon whom bewildered rotate strategists were depending for planks and splinters appeared even less useless than Doctor Glenn Frank's 228 platform specialists. Well, of course, Mr. Hoover had preached return of relief to "local committees"--rcadoption of breadlines. But he was not explicit as to what degree of insincerity should be employed by Republican Old Guurd management. Consequently, every degree of insincerity was employed. For example, to quote a few: "only deserving relief"; another, "relief where absolutely needed"; a third, "relief of essential nature". These phrases do not convey a deep sense of obligation. As to bringing out the economics involved, by showing a decent regard for the upkeep of human employment on a plunc with machine employment, this was not done in a single instance. Vermont rose to the occasion with a method which hud the merit of avoiding a committment anil literally treating relief as news. Observe the plank adopted at Montpelicr: "Millions of our citizens who deserve a better fate have become helpless wards of a political organization--a condition that is unnecessary if we permitted industry to function more freely, employ and produce abundantly." ABUNDANCE OK DEPRESSION! ECONOMIC HIGHLIGHTS The announcement of the Administration's great rearmament program has finally given credence to rumors that have been making the rounds for many weeks. At the same time, it haa given a considerable fillip to basic industry. In the words of an Associated Press dispatch, "The board plans now being worked out in conferences between business executives and government officials ·were designed to become the dominating factor in tbe recovery picture. "The huge scope of the program, they (the businessmen involved) add- Speaking of the importance of normal consumption of basic products, Mr. W. M. Jeffers, President of the Union Pacific Railroad, expresses the following common sense ideas that show there is no dividing line between the interests of production, distribution, transportation and employment. The business depression of the past eight or nine years ha; focussed national attention on the railroads and their problems. It has placed them in the position of parading their troubles before the world and of continually complaining of regulation, taxes and wages, while trying to meet the other fellow's problems as well as their own. They have given faster service, later departures, earlier arrivals, modernized equipment, smoother handling--any one or all of which may easily be factors of far more importance than a fractional reduction in rate, in the solution of a shipper's difficulties. Distribution costs have grown tremendously in many lines of business. TTiis may be traced to the merchandising or selling methods of the producer, or to federal or state legislation, or to competitive conditions. "The grading of agricultural products, the packaging of merchandise for sale, the cleaning of your windshield or putting air in your tires when you buy gasoline--all of these and many other services have added to the cost of distribution. I have no quarrel with any of them. They "ALL NATION SEES UPSWING" It has been so long since the automobile industry, or any national industry, haa issued n statement calling 35,000 men back to work, and announcing a readjustment of wages to compensate for previous cuts, that Washington had a hilarious attack of enthusiasm when General Motors announced ite program. Supplementary statements appeared almost immediately from high government officials stating that a million men have been transferred from relief rolls and absorbed in private employment. There was a chorus of unrestrained approval from Senators, saying that there "is a significant trend toward better business conditions in the nation," and that "the country is going ahend on the road to recovery. There was one from Chairman Jones of RFC that expressed the hope that there is a "definite upswing". Throughout the country the daily newspapers made first page news of Alfred P. Sloan's statement, but the newspapers of the National Capita] arose full-height to the opportunity as the Washington Herald confidently announced in a big, bold first-page streamline that declared: "All Nation Sees Upswing". Senator Lundccn, farmer-labor Senator from Minnesota, :=aid: "I don't know of any industry that I would rather see show a pick-up in This plank not only promises nothing at all but it mixes up WPA, the National Youth and CCC, oil of the programs of the Social Security Act --many agencies of both state and federal government-: quite apart from relief. It has the bitterly partisan advantage of indicting the Roosevelt Administration on a minimum of three counts. First, the relief plank which does not mention relief charges that the President "un- neces.-arily permitted" the deplorable conditions that were three years old when he entered the White House. Secondly, in not permitting industry to "function more freely", he is preventing industry from "employing fully" and to cap it all he also is not allowing industry to "produce abundantly." In at least two other states the word "relief" is not mentioned in Republican platforms. And in not one of them has the subject been treated with the courtesy bestowed in various G. 0. P. state platforms two years ago upon the famous little laboratory annex at the Memphis dog pound. Also Mr. Hoover failed to warn the Republican craftsmen in one respect, namely to refrain from committing the egregious error which, forsooth, they lid commit in a majority of the states. This, of course, was the promise of definite repeal of, the very taxes which influence relief. In Pennsylvania, for example, and all other large industrial states--out of consideration for their large contributors --the G. O. P. not only offered folks on relief this palpable rubber check; they also committed the party against any 'new taxes whatsoever. Just so raw was this performance in Pennsylvania that the veteran Republican, Gifford Pinchot, who has never bolted the ticket in the past, issued a statement to the press. "I'd hate to think," he said, "what they (the Republicans in charge this year) would do to the church people, to organized labor and to the thousands who depend on different kinds of relief--if they get the chance." fore the crop is harvested, and arc brought to the chemical laboratoies of the State Department of Health to be tested for traces of left-over-spray containing arsenic or some other poisonous : ulistniu'e.

Not the integrity of all the republics below th? Canadian line, as implied by Pan Americanism, a solidarity based upon common material and political interests and ties. But their reputation for integrity, in subscribing to and practicing the tenets of international law, in meeting their financial obligations and in dealing fairly and honestly with both native and foreign capital. Especially the latter. For upon this all of the Latin American states depend almost exclusively for resources with which u develop their natural wealth and provide national income with which lo meet the expenses of government. That which General Cardenas is doing to destroy what little Is left of Mexico's reputation for this sort of integrity, after nearly a generation of armed strife among rival political factions, miscalled a "revolution," harms all Latin America, in the eyes' of the world. Before Mexican politicians and glory-and-money-grecdy generals began to fight over the Mexican map and batten upon the wealth of that land, Mexico provided an eloquent example of national integrity. This wa, the envy of her Latin American neighbors. It gained for her world admiration and respect. Mexico paid her debts. She livnd up to her international obligations. She asked the thrifty of the outside world to bring their savings to Mexico and set them to work. They looked over the prospects. They meditated the protection upon which they might depend under Mexican laws. Both inspired their confidence. Their stake in the country they thought would bn reasonably safe. They were willing to | take the ordinary chances of winning or losing with which commercial or development ventures must reckon here" in the United States, or in any country. They accepted their chances and poured their dollars, pounds, Irancs and marks into Mexico. Some THE OYSTER--THE TRUE SYMBOL OF GOOD EATING Famed in History and Legend By Dr. Lewis Kadcliffe, Director Oyster Institute of North America, Washington, D. C. Oysters have been esteemed throughout history ns one of the most highly prized articles of food. The prtvence cif large numbers of shells found buried with stone axcheud.s and flint instruments used by the ancients bear mute testimony to the fact that oysters were eaten by primeval man. The graves of the early British and Scxons contained necklace:-- of the shells strung on fibre or sinuws. A form of cultivation through the formation of artificial beds flourished in China at a very remote- period, presumably anliduting by some centuries the beginnings of oy.-tor farming in Italy about 95 B. C. The Romans were especially fond of oysters, consuming them in large quantities and devoting considerable attention to their cultivation. Among the many philosophers and early writers who dwelt upon the various qualities and values of oysters as an article of diet were Cicero, Horace Pliny and Seneca. In fact at no period in history were oysters so highly prized as by the Romans at the luxurious height of their civilization when slaves were dispatched to the sea coast of the Atlantic to gather them for the fea-ts, and many Roman houses contained great tanks of water in which oysters were kept fresh for the table. It has even been suggested that the fume of the Britis) oyster was a deciding factor in the mind of Caesar in setting out on tha conquest of Britain. During the Roman occupation of Britain- about 78 B. C, oysters were exported at great expense and with much difficulty from Kent, England, to Rome for serving at banquets. The oysters were carried in bags tightly packed with snow and ice, not only preserving them but preventing opening of the shell; and the loss of moisture necessary to keep them alive. Considering the lack of transportatio: facilities and good roads in those jtimes, the attempting of such a feat is conclusive evidence of the high regard of the early Romans for choice seafood. In fact the remains of the Roman settlements in England are concentrated chiefly in the vicinity of the oyster beds in Kent, Sussex and According to report, the first English Whitstable oysters taken back to Rome created a new passion among the gourmets of-the Empire. Agrippa is accredited with having swept Luc- rine oystens off his table, replacing them with the British species. In giving an account of an ornate and sumptuous banquet given by Trim- alchio, Pctronius, the Sntyricon, describes one of the surprise courses of the feast in these words: "All of a sudden two slaves burst- in having apoarcntly quarreled whi'e drawing water at the cL-tern; at all of them won. As many, if not more, A decree dated July 22, 1B38, dissolved and forbade the German Student Christian Movement nnd the German Women Student Christian Movement, as well as the Auxiliary Movements of both organizations. This decree issued by the German Ministry of the Interior went into immediate effect. SPEAKING OF APPLES, ETC. Before you bite into that looking apple, wa.-:h it off thoroughly to be sure you have gotten rid of all traces of the poisonous spray used to destroy insect pests while the fruit was growing, is the advice of Dr. R. H. Riley, Director of the State Department of Health. Dr. Riley doosn't limit his precautionary reminder to apples, but includes pears,, grapes, lost. Still, the net of it was that Mexico, under the impetus supplied by foreign brains, foreign energy and foreign capital--for providing the bulk of which we Americans may well be proud--by 1910 took a commanding lead in the Latin American family, in wealth, progress, influence and hardly won and well deserved international respect. No country hail higher credit in the world money marts. One regret; that none of these evidences and rewards of national integrity remains to Mexico. Thanks to her political demagogues and her bedizened rascally generals. Revolution and the spirit of dishonesty and evil design which fundamentally seem to be prompting General Cardenas in his outrages upon our interests and those of our nationals, have brought Mexico from zenith to nadir, so far a; concern her position among her sister republics on the hemisphere. The General appears determined to thrust her still deeper into the mire of national infamy and disrepute. Thus far he has stridently and arrogantly rejected all of the mild, friendly urgings of Secretary Hull to accept the hand of assistance which he and the United States are holding out to Mexico to assist her in clambering from the mire into which her revolutionary leaders have plunged her. The best service that the Secretary possibly could render to the rehabilitation of Mexico would lie in his success in bringing the General to see this: That the greatest economic and political handicap with which Mexico and her people today are coping con- ists in the alienation of world «ym- pathy and support, confidence nnd respect, created by what the General is doing to the property of American and other- pioneer-developers. If he were doing it in slightest color of legality, outside judgment might be less censorious. But he is not. This the Secretary persistently and courteously reminds the General. I events they still had water jugs hanging around their necks. While Trimalchio was arbitrating between the disputing parties, neither paid the least attention to his rulings, but began smashing each other'is water jugs with their sitcks. "We i: tared at the brawlers, aghast at this drunken insolence, when behold we saw that oysters and mussels were pouring out of their big jars; a young slave gathered them up and handed them around in a tray." In 50 B. C. Sallust wrote of the Britons, "The poor Britons--there is some good in them, after all--they produce an oyster." The first settlers to arrive on our shores were much impressed by the great abundance, the large size and the excellence of quality of our eastern oyster. Along the coasts of Maine there have been discovered hundreds of Indian shell heaps or "kitchen middens." The largest and most unique of these are located at the mouth of the Damariscotta River. These are built exclusively of oyster shell?, rather than the common clam and cover many acres of land to depths of as much as twenty feet. Oyster shells in such incomprehensible numbers represent centuries of accumulation. Early estimates as to the quantities of shells present ranged as high as nearly 46,000,000 cubic feet. However a detailed survey made by Richard P. Goldthwait in 1932 indicated about 7G8,000 cubic feet representing about 3-10,000,000 individual shells, or a consumption of 170,000,000 oysters by the Indians.

Washington remembers and talks about the time the automobile industry shifted into high-gear several years ago. It led the country out of the depression. That exactly is thd reason why the National Capital entertains a buoyant hope right now that this same thing can happen again. The Administration has repeatedly challenged business to restore prosperity. Now the hope rises in political circles in all parties and factions that the upswing is under way, nnd that private business has accepted the challenge. Meanwhile business, which has and vegetables, also. "Fruits and vegetables that are in use today," he said, "go through a great deal of handling before they reach you, or me. The custom of spraying growing fruits and vegetables with poisonous chemicals to protect them against pests, has also become very general. Much of the poisonou; spray is washed off by the summer rains, but there is always a possibility of some trace of it being left. A thorough washing before the fruit, or vegetables arc used, will remove dirt or soil acquired in handling, and will get rid of the substances used to protect the growing crops from insect enemies. "Great care is taken," Dr. Riley continued, "to protect Maryland fruit from damage by the spray used to destroy insects. The Bureau of Food and Drugs of the State Department of Health is in touch with farmers nnd fruit growers throughout the State, and with the Inspection Service of the University of Maryland. "Samples of Maryland-grown fruit arc collected from representative orchards by the Inspection Service bo- ation of any man's property, whether he be native or foreign, without prompt and adequate payment. International law prescribes the same with reference to foreign holdings abroad. But the General throws national integrity as well as his own nnd that of his administration, completely overboard by asserting his right to flout both Mexican and international law by stealing enormously of American and other foreign holdings. This, of course, deals a block eye to Latin America's reputation for collective integrity. Especially what threatens still farther to damage this ia that the General is working hard to force Secretary Hull into backing down upon bis insistence that Cardenas must not steal the property of Americans. And, what is more menacing, to encourage many of Mexico's sister republics to sacrifice their own integrity by following General Cardcna-5' example.--E. L. B. I love that tranquility of Soul in which we feel the blessing of existence, and which in itself is a prayer and n thanksgiving.--Longfellow. of each year, it would have required 1000 years to have consumed the oysters represented in the shell heaps in the region covering about fourteen acres of ground. I have often wondered as to the reasons for the popularity of oysters, especially among primitive people. Was it duo to their fine sea tang or because of some unknown factor satisfying some bodily need? For example, codliver oil ho.3 been administered for generations as an important factor in keeping well. Most of us took it, not because we enjoyed the taste but as necessary for good health. And yet, it was not until about 1913 with the discovery of vitamin A, that we began to understand that the value of fwh oils rested on their richness in vitamins. "This instinctive urge of eating shellfish" writes H. J. Bockelmnn, "is not singular to man; it has been reported from among other primates, the chimpanzees for example, which periodically make trips to the coast for this purpose. Foxes, too, arc known to eat mollusks nnd many birds do the same as well as fishes and other animals." Shcllhenps have been reported from almost every country of the world.
