REPERCUSSION IN JAPAN Resignation of the Hiranuma Cabinet in Japan does not of itself occasion a crisis. Rather it is an inescapable consequence of the Russo-German non-aggression d-eal, of which the Japanese had no advance knowledge. But when the anti- Comintern pact flew out the window, there was nothing for Japan to do but to formulate a new foreign policy. The last man capable of doing that was the 73-year-old Baron Hiranuma, under whose nominal rule, dating only from last January, Japanese relations witk the British and the French became itT- creasingly worse by reason of "i cidents" in China. Japan's adherence to the anti- Comintern pact took place before the Hiranuma regime. It was dictated by the military clique, the most important officers of which are serving with the army of 350,000 picked troops that fear of Russia makes necessary in Manchukuo. While the inconclusive Tientsin blockade negotiations were in progress in Tokyo, it was plain that "Old Guard Republicans who were warned recently by Congressman Walter Jeffries now are spanked by Congressman Culkins, New York Republican. He says they have put the skids under Kenneth Simpson because Simpson favored recognizing labor. Many of our silk - socked Republicans never learn. Even more election results like those of 1932 and 1936 will teach them nothing."—Atlantic City Press (Ind.) "If Philadelphia is to be rescued next November from the mess in which it has been plunged up to it windpipe, it is essential that .th next mayor and the next member of council must be chosen on an ironbound basis of honesty, compe tence and equipment for the jobs 1 hand. NO HACKS, NO STOOGES NO BUMS, NO POLITICAL PAN HANDLERS WILL DO."—Phila delphia Inquirer - Public Ledge (Rep.) NOTE: The mayor and citj council of Philadelphia are Repub lican. September Morn "The extreme reluctance of Re publican politicians to accept Dewey as a Presidential possibility is quit understandable. He is not Presl dential timber." — Miami Heraic (Ind. Dem.) "The article in the current maga zine Fortune brings out clearly what any honest article would be obliged to—that the Republicans a party are still without a definite national program." — Springfield Mass., Union & Republican. Hiranuma did not have a hand, but that successive Japanese moves were dictated by a representative of the army on the ground at the capital. The army chieftains had staked their faith on Hitler and Mussolini, even though a tripartite military alliance was avoided. Fascist sympathies were ardently expressed. It was the fear of great business groups like the Mitsuis fctat Japan was tending toward Fascism. Recall of all Japanese ambassadors and ministers from Europe is obviously for purposes of stocktaking with a view of mending wantonly broken fences by rapproache* ment with Britain and France and improvement of the public attitude toward Japan in the United States. Such an about-face is most embarrassing in Japanese pride. It cannot be successful without distinct concessions as to th© status in China of the and a moro China. Democratic nations tolerant policy in AMERICA is destined to be the sucker again—when Hitler gets through they'll pass the hat here to feed the starving Germans. AMERICAN tourist R, rushing home while they still have their watches, report that conditions are «vt» worse than usual in Europe, "Before embarking upon the high seas, Republican National Chairman John D. M. Hamilton proffered some advice to Republican candidates for Congress next year. He told them that 'The bark of the Townsendites is worse than theft bite.' He can qualify without challenge as an expert on Towiisendism. He wrangled sufficient Townsend support to win 68 seats in Congress last year. But he is spreading it on a bit thick when he says the government is committed to an old age assistance program. For he has insisted all along that the Roosevelt program 'actually is not old age assistance.' " — Lincoln Star (Ind. Dem.) BLAME COTTON Each August the Bureau of Agri cultural Economics gives out an estimate of .cash farm income for the current calendar year. The estimates are quite accurate, barring abnormal weather conditions. According to the figures just announced, the 1939 total, including government conservation and parity payments, will approximate $7,900,000,000, or $120.000,000 less than in 193S. For the first half of the year the heaviest loser has been the cotton producer, as was to be expected with the marked reduction in exports, the reasons for which are too well understood to require repetition. Where for the period in question sales a year ago were $153,000,000, this year they were down to ?42.000,000. For the remainder of the year the department anticipates thai sales will compare favorably with a year ago. The outlook for what in the last half is not good, although that product did better in the first half than in the corresponding 193S period. The year's corn income will be higher, as will that from friut and vegetables. In short, cotton sales comparable last year would more than have overcome the 1120,000.000 disparity with 1D3S in total farm income. COMRADE HITLER sent one of his flunkies to see Comrade Stalin, but the latter understood. Comrade Hitler was too busy at the time to go personally. Washington Daybook -By Preston Grover- WASHINGTON, Sept. 6. — We have taken up with the National Health Institute of Public Health the problem of whether a strawberry-flavored football team will gain more yardage than a lemon- flavored team. While we get no final conclusions, we do get lots of information. The thing grew up out of the fact that energetic scientists discovered that gelatin, taken in fairly large quantities under certain conditions, would enable a man to do more work before surrendering to that tired feeling. The football season is approaching. We asked the Institute of Health and also the Public Health Service what would happen if a coach fed his team on gelatine to help the boys beat the Terrytown Mud cats in that big Thanksgiving day game, November 23 or November 30. Three learned savants of the .wo institutions agreed that experiments tended to prove that gelatine, taken in sufficient quantities would permit a man to do a lot :nore work before fatigue set in. It Might Be Harmful Here, for instance, is a recent experiment reported in the proceedings of the Society for Experimental Biology and Medicine. G. B. Ray, J. R. Johnson nnd M. M. Tay- lor of the Long Island College of Medicine announced that men to whom they fed gelatine over a period of 49 days gradually built up resistance to a point where they could do 37 to 240 per cent more work before fatigue set in. When the gelatine was taken away, the man's work capacity gradually receded. What happens? we asked. Would a group of high school lads be permanently injured if they were gela- tinecl up to a point where they could throw double-duty into a football game? Would the heart be hurt, even though the muscles were AviTTing? Views differed. One nutrition authority said he could foresee no harm if the gelatine did not substitute for other food. It should not replace eggs, liver or other protein sources carrying all the essential amino acids. * * * How It Works The thing works this way. Gelatine contains 25 per cent of gly- cine. Glycine is associated with the generation of creatine in the muscles. And creatine seems to be the phosphate compound in muscles which prolongs energy. The more creatine in the muscles, the more work before fatigue sets in. Other foods contain glycine, but gelatine contains it in large quanti- ties and can be taken readily. The Long Island experimenters gave their subjects 60 cubic centimeters daily—about a half tumblerful, dissolved in water and flavored with lemon or orange. We were informed that the flavor doesn't matter. We must add a discouraging word for the women. Experiments indicate that it doesn't work with women. They get tired just about as fast, gelatine or no gelaine. Senator Sails For Home On Freighter Washington, Sept. 6.—Senator Rush Holt (D-W Va) sailed from Copenhagen, Denmark, for the United States Tuesday aboard the U. S. Maritime Commission freighter Morrnachawk, his office announced. Shipping agents for the vessel adivsed the Senator's office that the ship would clear the "danger zone" in the North Sea "sometime tonight." Holt, who went to the Interparlia- mentary Conference held in Oslo, Norway, early in August has been stranded in Copenhagen since the outbreak of hostilities between Germany and Poland. He is ac- cqmpanied on the return trip by his sister, Mrs. Ralph Chase, nnd her husband, an attoreny for the Maritime Commission.

By George Tucker NEW YORK Sept. 6.—New York in a few weeks will De entering into her fairest season—not the season of autumn or of autumnal changes, but the make-believe season of the theater. ... At this time of the year it is always a great pleasure to contemplate this phenomenon of Manhattan life, even though when it actually arrives it brings only the whirr of the turkeys that flutter past you—even though your evenings may be lost in a bewildering maze of dialogue, and your mornings squandered on hasty reviews. The new show season, for some unexplained reason, is always more fun to me than all the rest of the year put together. It gives off an excitement, a sense of things about to happen that makes your step just a bit lighter. It makes you sleep better at night, and it kindles a warmth in your eyes that isn't there when the season has grown old and the crispness has gone out of Broadway and left it— and you too—like an infirm dollar bill. Well if you see three or four shows that really sing, you have had a good year. Just three or four that really sing, and they make up for the 60 or 70 others that flit across your brain like evil fumes and are forgotten. No one ever remembers more than five or six shows a year anyway, not even professional reviewers, who see every opening, night after night, often for a decade or longer. When I say this I mean remember them well, perhaps well enough to tell, or quote from. They simply cease to exist except in the- morgue of bad revues. * * * There are certain theatres in New York I enjoy passing at any time, because they have been the scene of exciting winter evenings and their names are stenciled in your imagination like the laundry- mark on a well-belowed shirt. The Music Box, for instance, and the Empire, and Belasco. There are others that are brighter and newer and much better theaters, but they mean no more than another bobber along catfish row. I wouldn't give you a dime for the Center theater, which is the most expensive, the most luxuriously appointed, and the largest legitimate theater in NBAV York. Nothing intimate about it. That type of house is all right for musicals, but drama is lost to me in large theaters. It doesn't belong. * * w I see by the papers that all over New York casts are rehearsing. The old familiar names creep back into the drama notes. ... A few openings have already been announced. . . . The drama critics are returning from the lecture tours. . . . That's one nice thing about being a drama critic for the New York dailies. . . . Every year they go lecturing to make lots of cash. . . . Alexander Woollcott, who gave up drama criticism towrite books and, eventually, to turn actor himself, has abandoned acting now for the lecture platform. . . . Yep, the best season of all is coming.. .. Not because the leaves are turning. . . . But, just because. * * * Add to those sons of big names who are dabbling in the theater, young Bill Tibbett, who spent the summer as assistant stage manager of the summer theater at Peterborough, N.
