American boy knocked down an Axis piano soon should be able to make t'.ie contribution k.?»ving that they are helping send one more American plane up and at 'eni. One provision in the second war powers bill (S2208) expected to become law shortly specifics that the treasury may accept gifts of money, property, or services, made on condition that they be used for a particular purpose. Legislation Was Requested Under existing law the Treasury has been able to. accept gifts of money when the donors agreed to let the sums be put in with the miscellaneous receipts, or if the gift was something else let it be sold and the revenue put in the miscellaneous fund. Consequently, when individuals or groups of any kinds presented the government money collected in such drives as the "penny-a-plane" campaigns in Texas, the 'Treasury could only toss it into the miscellaneous re ceipts fund. Patriotic citizens in Marshall Waco, Harlingen, Beaumont, For Isabel, Troup and other towns o Texas have sent in funds. Treasury officials, in appreciation of the motive of these people and others like them in every state, came to Congress and asked for legislation which would permit them to accept gifts for a specific purpose. Action Is Upheld The amendment was incorporated into the war powers bill in title XII, adopted by the Senate only after heated discussion in the Senate judiciary committee. Tne Senate upheld its committee's action. The bill then went to the House and was concurred in by the House judiciary committee, which had this to say -in its report on that section concerning acceptance of gifts: "As zj practical matter, it is impossible to take the money from a particular gift and use it for the purchase of a definite piece of material. "The provisions of this title, however, would permit the treasury to accept gifts made for speci- iic purposes and to put them into the existing congressional appropriations which most nearly effectuate the intent of the donors in each case, thus supplementing that appropriation to the extent of the gifts. It does so in a manner which will permit this to be done •with a minimum of administration - duficulty through the regular accounting and disbursement procedures of the Treasury department Donations Since Pearl Harbor "Since the Pearl Harbor attack over _15,000 persons have made donations of money and other property to the government to be used in the war effort These donations, which are presently at the rate of about 53,000,000 a year came from individuals, schools' fraternal organizations, labor organizations, groups of. citizens, and employes of various companies. "This title will enable patriotic citizens who wish to bear more than their share of the war costs to make voluntary contributions to ( the war effort. "While the secretary of the Treasury has urged that persons desiring to participate in the war ef- .-.ort of the country invest their funds in defense bonds or stamps or in Treasury tax savings notes! tne Treasury has and will continue to receive voluntary donations from those persons who desire to make them, since to deny citizens the right to make voluntary financial sacrifices -would obviously hav s a bad psychological effect. . The Treasury has not and states that it will not authorize private persons or agencies to co"duct special campaigns to raise funds from the public for thi<= purpose. Private persons and agencies, of course, are and will be at liberty to conduct such campaigns on their own initiative but it is felt that any coercive or nigh-pressure solicitation by any private person or agency of gifts to the United States should be definitely discouraged."

McCollom, chairman of the aviation cadet examining board of the district army recruiting office, told Ki- wanians Thursday at a luncheon in Lubbock hotel. Major McCollom, former Stillwater, Okla., high school principal, discussed the present situation in the Far East, gave a brief history of China and her relations with other nations and pointed out some military strategy in the Pacific at this time. China's history dates back 5,000 years and in that time many foreign nations have made trouble for the nation, have taken territory for themselves and have generally "pushed around" the nation McCollom said. Portugal, Great Britain, Japan, France and Russia, among others, have been involved in the troubles, and have taken concessions. There have been long period^ of peace," frequently followed by wars. In 1899 John Hay, then secretary of state in President McKinley's cabinet, visited China and from his visit came later the so- called "open door" policy that we have held to since. Following the Boxer rebellion in 1901, when foreign legations were attacked 5300,000,000 indemnity was im- posed.

Major McCollom outlined Japan's four point program lor the Pacific with the fourth period now under way. First was the taking of Manchuria; second, taking China step by step, which has since bogged down; third, taking the islands of the Pacific and fourth, a war against this nation to secure control of the Pacific, just begun. America's present strategy is to hold what we have and to get our production up," he said. It will be difficult for some time to get supplies to China, he added. President O. J.

A Defense Bond TODAYI 4343 For The Ayfllanche-Journcl Offie«s National Treasury Hobson Called Turn On Japan By GENE PLOWDEN United Press Stall Correspondent MEMPHIS, Term., Feb 10. — "Japan has gone further toward making plans for war than any white nation has ever gone. She teaches 'hate the foreigner' and 'prepare for war.' In her. preparation foi- war, she is locating on our Pacific coast and is filling Hawaii with soldiers." These might have been the words of a patriot last year, a few days before Pearl Harbor and Wake and Guam. But they were not. They were spoken in Memphis on the night of Oct. 14, 1907. The speaker was Capt. Richmond Pearson Hobson, naval hero of the Spanish-American war and later Congressman from Alabama. Hobson, the man who blew up the collier Merrimac to blockade Cervera's fleet in Santiago harbor, told his Memphis audience thai "one of the strongest .reasons for enlarging the navy is the fact that this country is threatened by Japan." "Japan has had the war habit for more than 800 years; it is with her aquestion of heredity," he said. Hobson called lor a "two-ocean navy." He said the Japanese were enlarging their navy "for no other purpose than to grapple with the white race for supremacy of the world." Attacked By Press Hobson urged spending $50,000 000 a year to enlarge the navy saying that the United States should start with $100,000 000 the first year. His figures may not seem excessive now, but they were enough to shock the public of' 1907. Hobson was branded as. a "public nuisance" by the press. Memphis newspapers reported the audience "listened with great interest, and some of Capt. Hobson's -'words were heartily ao- plauded." But in less than a year—July 16, 1908 — the Independent, a weekly magazine, pronted the following under the heading "A Public Nuisance."
