Our Daily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor Alex. H. Washburn——-• Nationalism Docs Have a Place in the Sun •*? In olden days we found peace as warring nations, whether .victorious or vanquished,' turned their attention to the domestic task of rebuilding trade and commerce, Each country being strongly knit together by a patriotic bond there was suficicnt unity at home to allow this job to be done. And, there being unity ai home, some scm blancc of unity was achieved a broad as sovereign stales greeted each othcit with respect. This was the picture of peace ii $>klcn times. Today we have dif fcrcnt notions about what tonsil Kites human rights and inter national justice — a tremendously expanded picture of noise a^d con fusion. But nothing in this picUm today indicates that the fundamcn l.al requirements for lasting peac Hinong nations has changed one io ta — any more than the ciiaracle of the human: race has changed i thousands of years. H Is the fashion today for men to profess that belief in an "ism 1 J:omcs ahead of allegiance to one's "own country. These economic isms' may be interesting subjects lor debate, but as between men of different nations they augur no more for the cause of peace than did the religious "isms" which dis- turbcd Europe in the Middle Ages. There may be room for improv- cmcnl in the character of the in- .dividual citi/cn, and in the kind of government under which he lives— but only when an American is an American, an Englishman an Englishman, and a Frenchman a 3f'ienchman, can the world have something substantial and undcbat- able oti whcih to build the struct- •' urc of peace. Nationalism docs have -a place in the sun. The pursuit of "isms, whether economic or religious, into thcj international sphere only leads to chaos. We have two examples in today's news of the destructive and futile nature of the policy of putting "isms' before patriotism. China, instead of being a place •t'.whcrc the Chinese swear allegiance to one government, is a land of civil war fought over property rights and personal privilege.China is therefore, a land poor beyond measure and weak beyond the con ccplion of Western minds. « The other examnlc is Yugoslavia, a very minor nation which bends her national interest to the will ol Russia's curious economic 'isms. And, paradoxically,. Russia al most alone of all great powers, is pursuing a single patriotic course— \"- behind "isms" which less suspect " ""' Star WEATHER FORECAtT Arkansas: Clear to partly cloudy this afternoon, tonight arid Friday. 47TH YEAR: VOL. 47—NO. 265 Star of Hone. 1899; Press, 1927.

TACKLES: Wilton Garrcll" Believes Istanbul Has More Cats to the Doorstep Than Any Other City in World By EDWIN B. GREENWALD (For Hal Boyle ) Istanbul, Turkey, Aug. 22 —(/I 1 ) — Talking about cats, as everybody does here, there arc people wilh more than their share of gelling around thc world who contend lhal Islanbul has more cals lo Ihc doorstep than any other city in any country. There arc no figures lo confirm or refute Inis, but a glance up and down any Istanbul strecl is enough lo convince the doubter thai there is some merit in thc argument. No one. official or otherwise, is willing to hazard even a rough guess on the city's feline population. bul Ihc supply can be described as well in excess nt ample. Lasl spring's killen crop littered to ago, hauled thorn by ship barren island in the sea of Marmora and abandoned them to an unhappy fate. Left without food and without access to thc mainland, the clogs simply devoured eacli other until, it may be reasoned, only one dog remained and he, ur she, presumably starved to death. Al least Ihere are no dogs loday on Ihe island which, /iol at all strangely, acquired Ihe name ''Dog Island." Therc is .10 tourist rude .there, either. So Islanbul's cats don't worry l-ioul dogs; it's Ihe dogs thai do lords. We he;. advise the statesmen charged with solving thc problems of atomic energy control to ponder this speculation -and then do something about il. Otherwise, that old phrase about the world going to Ihe doss may come lo sound ominously 'prophetic. ->, Ihc streets, choked blocked apartment utlcrs and house steps while Ihc number of roving parents in nowise diminished. Istanbul is a cat paradise, one of the reasons being thai there arc 1 few dogs to disturb noi-ir»sl cat routine. The Turks rounded up all the whalevcr worrying there is lo be done.
