THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD., SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 1939. LINDY SAYS TO KEEP OUT Famed Flier Urges This Nation Not To Be Misguided By Propaganda WASHINGTON, Sept. 16.—Col. Charles A. Lindbergh urged America last night to keep carefully out of Europe's war, asserting that "If /we enter the fight for democracy abroad, we may end by losing it here at home. "We must not be misguided by this foreign propaganda to the effect •that our frontiers lie in Europe." the famous flier said in an address prepared for broadcast by all major networks. "One need only glance at a map to see where our true frontiers lie.' What more could we ask than the Atlantic Ocean on the east and the Pacific on the iwest An ocean is a formidable ^barrier even for modern aircraft." 1 Lindbergh, who first came to .prominence by flying one of the •ocean barriers he mentioned, made no allusion, to the currently agitated question of repealing the neutrality law's embargo on arms shipments to the nations at war. But here in Washington, with Congress called into special session to consider that question, there were several developments connected with it or with the war itself. President Roosevelt, when asked if the Administration would be satisfied with, repeal of the entire neutrality act and a return to international law, replied that any answer would disclose what he is planning to tell the special session in WB message of next Thursday. At the same time, he defined American territorial waters as extending as far out as American interests require. No one, he said, had ever defined the term that way and he thought it a good definition. .He added a hope that the work of the special session would be con- ftned to neutrality legislation. He would not ask, he said, either for new anti-profiteering laws or for legislation dealing with war risk insurance. Lindbergh's address was an unusual occurrence, in that he rarely makes public utterances. He arranged to make it in the seclusion of a : hotel room, with very few per- song^ptesent: : ; "N<Jw. -that war has broken out apin^llie "said, "we in America bkYe a decision to make on which the destiny of our nation depends. "We must decide whether or not we intend to become forever involved in this age-old struggle between the nations of Europe. "Let us not delude ourselves. If we enter the quarrels of Europe during war, we must stay in them in time of peace as welL It is mad- n,esg to send our soldiers to be Wiled as we did in the last war if we turn the.course of peace over to the greed, the fear, and the intrigue of European nations. We must either keep out of European wars entirely, or stay in European affairs permanently. "In making our decision, this point is clear: These wars in Europe are not wars in which our civilization is defending itself against some Asiatic intruder. There is no Ghengis Kahn or Xerxes marching against our Western nations. ; "Thii is not a question of band- tag together to defend the White Race against foreign invasion. This It simply one more of those age-old quarrels within our family of nations—a quarrel arising from the error* of the last war—from the failure of the victors of that war to Studio Couch Covers 3 Matching J| .99 Pillow* ...

"Arbitrary boundaries can only be maintained by' strength of arms. The Treaty of Versailles either had to be revised as time passed, or England and France, to be successful, had to keep Germany weak by force. Neither policy was followed; Europe wavered back and forth between the two. As a result, another war has begun, a war which is likely to be far more prostrating than the last, a war which will again kill off the best youth of Europe, a war which may even lead to the end of our Western civilization." Since 1918, he said, a generation has passed, Europe has not yet recovered before plunging into another war, and America is "still paying" for her part in the last conflict. "European countries were both unable and unwilling' to pay their debts to us," he added. "Our safety does not lie in fighting European wars/' he said at another point. "It lies in our own internal strength, in the character of the American people and of American institutions. As long as we maintain an Army, Navy and air force worthy of the name, as long as America does not decay within, we need fear no invasion of this country."

LEITER BROTHERS SISTERS TELL OF TRIP HOME The Misses Mower Witness Rescue In Ocean; Have Perilous Crossing Back from a rather perilous crossing of the Atlantic with a war on in Europe, Misses Kathryn and Janet Mowrer, daughters of Dr. and Mrs. Charles L. Mowrer, Oak- Hill avenue, told some of their experiences last evening, including the rescue at sea of the crew and two passengers of an English freighter. The Mowrer sisters arrived in New York early Thursday morning aboard the Holland-American liner Staatendam. They sailed from Rotterdam on Tuesday, Sept. 5. Miss Katheryn Mowrer told how the Staatendam picked .up the 37 survivors of the British freighter Winkleigh about two days out from South Hampton. The freighter was torpedoed and sunk by a Nazi submarine in the Atlantic. The cpmmander of the sub allowed the crew and passengers to get into two large lifeboats and to send out an S. 0. .S. before sinking the vessel. The survivors were taken aboard the Dutch vessel, most of them feeling well after their experience. They had been in the lifeboats less than a day. The first night out the Staaten- dam was in the English channel when a complete "blackout" was ordered, Miss Mowrer said. This was to guard against a possible air raid and mines. The ship anchored in the channel all night. The vessel stopped at South Hampton to take on some American passengers. Miss Mowrer said there were many patrol planes at this port, also English naval vessels of various kinds. The Staatendam was delayed a few hours in sailing because it waited for passengers on board a special train from Boulogne, Prance, as the ship was not allowed to dock at" this port due to the war. Miss Mowrer stated that the Staatendam was the first vessel to leave from a European port with passengers after war was declared. Miss Kathryn Mowrer left Hagerstown on June 20, this year, to join her sister who had been studying in Paris. The girls visited several different countries. They were in Germany on two different occasions and the last time were there a little over a week before war was declared. "The people in Germany seemed calm," Miss Mowrer said. "They seldom mentioned the name of Hitler. They referred to him as their 'leader.' When occasionally his name was mentioned it was to praise him highly. The people in Germany gave you the impression that they did not know definitely whether there would be a war and most of them said they did not want war any more than any other country." While in England Miss Mowrer said that she visited bomb proof shelters in the parks. She also noticed them in Paris. While in London, in July, the girls did not hear a great deal about the war and the people seemed to take things calmly although were making extensive preparations. They also visited Italy, Belgium and Switzerland. They were part of an organized group of students during the tour. While in Germany the students received word from the office of the touring agency to leave the country at once due to possibility of war. They crossed over into Belgium and headed for Rotterdam to catch the Staatendam before it sailed for America. The normal passenger list of the Dutch vessel is about 1600 but she brought about 2,000 to America.

IN NATURAL, RACHEL, ROSE- RACHEL, ROSETTA BRONZE *] LEITER BROTHERS SOIL CONSERVATION--WHAT IT MEANS Letters and records left by both George Washington and Thomas Jefferson provide, curiously the most detailed observations now- available, as to first known measures of soil defense in the United States. In 1887, Washington wrote the English agriculturist, Arthur Young. "The cultivation of tobacco'has been almpst the sole object with men of landed property, and consequently a regular course of crops has never been in view. The general custom has been, first to raise a crop of Indian corn (maize), which, according to the mode of cultivation, is a good preparation for wheat; then a crop of wheat; after which a round is respited (except from weeds, and every trash that can contribute to its foulness), for about 18 months; and so on, alternately, without any dressing, till the laud is exhausted; when it is turned out, without being sown with grass seeds, or any method taken to restore it; and another piece is ruined in the same manner. No more cattle are raised, than can be supported by lowland meadows, swamps, etc., and the tops and blades of Indian corn; as very few persons have attended to sowing grasses, and connecting cattle with their crops. . . . There are several, among, whom I may class myself, who are endeavoring to get into your regular and systematic course of cropping, as fast as the nature of the business will admit; so that I hope in the course of a few years we shall make a more respectable figure as farmers, than we have hitherto done." Peaceful Picketing In Progress At Local Terminal. No settlement appeared imminent today in the Cumberland Motor Express strike which went into effect Tuesday evening at 5 o'clock at the terminals in Hagerstown., Cumberland, Baltimore and Pittsburgh. Peaceful picketing has been in progress in front of the Main avenue terminal since the strike was called by the truck drivers, who are affiliated with an American Federation of Labor Union. Between two and six pickets have been pounding the Main avenue pavements almost continuously, an official of the local terminal declared. An agreement between the Motor Express Company and truck drivers expired recently and new contract submitted by the drivers "is not agreeable to the company," this official declared. H.e added there had been several fruitless conferences. Since most of the strike participants are known as "over the road drivers" only about six Hagerstown men are affected.
