PAGE EIGHT SEEN ON THE STREETS (From page 1) lheir grip and surrendered ther self respect. We have no doubt that in the jungles hereabouts and beggin/ on the streets there are useless men. young and old, who were fairly good citizens ten years ago. But be all this as it may the fact remains that Officer Tieder- man and the people of this com- mmfity in general are, in the mat- ter of extending assistance to unfortuna+es, confronted with the difficult problem of sane dis- crimination as betwen the worthy and the unworthy. To illustrate our point, less than an hour ago a strangera swarthy, physical- lv powertul fellow, entered this office and asked for the price of trice of a "loaf of bread" and, we observed he was blen, eyed from the excessive use of liquorin truth, half drunk. We happen to know that, up and down the street, this man--and others of his kind--ask for the price of a "loaf of bread" and, spend the money for liquor with which to debauch themselves. With complete sympathy for God's unfortunates it may be said that to truly help such' men is impossiMe unless, perhaps, they were arrested and placed on a chain gang nntil they learn that to degenerate into common par- asites is unprofitable. If, as it appears, Officer Tiederman is at- tempting to minimize the nui- .,ance ef professional beggars he is to be congratulated for his thoughtfulness. But as we, all of us, consi@r these matters let urecall that the grea- problem is to sift the wheat from the chaff---differenti- ate between the worthless tramp and the honest worker who is out of luck. For, surely, there no greater human attribute hen helpful kindness well placed. s we study unfortunates it is ell to recall that a great philo- sopher, upon watching a beggar of alms; id: "But for the grace of God there go I." -Are You Registered?- LOST3 keys on ring.

WASHINGTON.---High naval of- ficials believe funds will be made available next year for the construc- tion of two 45,000-ton superdread- naughts, envisioned as the most deadly warships ever launched. Because of radical changes in de- sign and construction of new battle- ships, the proposed 45,000-ton ves- sels would be equivalent in striking power and over-all size of 60,000-ton men-of-war built along the lines of present day dreadnaughts to be laid down by naval cotmtruction experts. Japan .Building Three. Japan reportedly has under con- struction three 46,000-ton dread- naughts, but the navy department has no accurate information on the island empire's building program. If President Roosevelt asks con- gress for money to begin construc- tion of two 45,000-ton ships at the next session of congress the United States would be the first known power to launch a program of su- perwarships. Navy authorities do not believe that France intends to build to the tonnage limit of the recently con- cluded Anglo - France - American treaty, and Great Britain reported- ly is not yet definitely decided on its future battleship building course. It is believed that the next dread- naughts to be laid down by Britain will be of 40,000 tons. Plans Being Drawn. Meanwhile, the United States navy drafting division is going ahead with plans for the superwarships and they should be completed in time to start construction this time next year.' Although all details of tha plans are being kept secret, it is under- stood that special attention is being given to means of increasing battle- ship speed to at least 33 knots and possibly more under forced draft. The two battleships now under con- struction, the North Carolina and Washington of 35,000 tons each, are expected to have speeds of about 27 knots. Funds are available to begin work on four other battleships. Although the President has authority to order them built ta the 45,000-ton limit, it is generally believed they will be of the North Carolina-Washington class, with a few changes in the hull and propelling machinery to in- crease speed. These vessels prob- ably will be on the ways before the end of this year, depending upon available facilities and the number of bids received from private com- panies. ii i i iiii I YOUR "SHIP WILL C()ME IN" Sooner By tF Aid of Newspape ADVER00 Evergreen Grocery p Johnson s IGA Stere Specials Sat.- Mon.

Some there are who claim that railroads are overcap- italized. Accepting this ellega- tion as true (and we know noth- ing about it) the fact remains that if such capitalizations were cut in half the present prob- lem would not be solved at all. Assume, again, as alleged, that some railway executives are ov- eroaidand if we eliminte their salaries entirely the problem is not solved. Evidently, the big trouble lies deeper. It appears that auto trucks and passenger automobiles have cut a heavv swath in the earnings of rail roads. Perhaps this fact pre- sents the chief source of diffi- culty. We read that since 1926 the number of railroad employes has declined forty-two percent. This means that many thousands of men are working but part time--and many have no work at All. Again. the pro1'em o what can be done to correct the con- dition here mentioned is beside the purpose of this comment. As a side observation, however. one is inclined to wonder if it may not be true that railroad workers who propose to strike are not in the position of a boatman who discards his oars because he finds that his craft is leaking. Certain it is hat if the threat- ened railroad strike materializ- es the result will be disastrous to the nation--with no means of knowing the limit of such dis- aster. IT'S UP TO GEORGE .When one considers the recent and pending negotiations as be- tween England, France and Ger- many in regard to st how, were and whennd in what degree the little republic of Czecho- slovakia shall be dismembered in the interests of peace the thought arises that much of the discussion may be beside the mark gs applied to preventing war. This because the president of Czechoslovakia, and his pa- triotic followers, seem to have a very definite aversion to serving as guinea' pigs on a dissecting table. As we write this we are re- minded that once upon a time in this country we had a citizen of very definit convictions named George Washington. It seems that various European statesmen were grievously perturbed in re- gard to the wayward George's 'ideas of liberty, self-determina- I tionand' such. But, it further,, I appears, "the powers that were I failed to consult with George. And, if memory is correct, there II il I Bingen Mach0000ie Shop -'GU:gRANTED MACHINE WORK-- Electric anll Acetylene Welding Bi .agen, Washington Iwas quite some fight. It is con- ceivable that the presldent of Czechosovakia is in spirit not nn- like "our George." THE VOICE OF BORAH During the past day or two varions American statesmen, real or alleged, have expressed opin- ions relative to what the attitude of this country should be in the event of war in Europe. Of these expressions we like that of Sen- ator W. E. Borah best. Borah, it will be recalled, is the ranking minority member of the senate foreign relations committee and his voice and logic are known throughout the world. In consid- ering the problem Senator Borah said : Let the people of Europe settle it ..among . them- selves.. They are the on- ly ones who can. We suspect that it would be well if Senator Borah's state- ment were printed and--posted in every schoolhouse, church, lodge room. hoteland even beer hall in the land. Surely, it would serve as a timely eminder that never again should the American people consent to pull chestnuts out of an European political fire. O -Are You Registered ?- FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 1938 --- . . _ Shallow Trays in a Shed ! Farmed in Electric Show CARDIFF, WALES.--A We/Lsian peep into the future of farming was afforded visitors to the Royal agri- cultural show here in a display of electrical machinery which some day may turn farming into an arm- chair industry. Laboratory wizards have perfect- ed electrical gadgets which do al- most everything but eliminate the hen in egg laying and poultry rais- ing. And in a low-roofed shed the same magical force grows enough food for 10 milk cows--which in- creases their yield continuously. One of the features of the show was an "all-electric farm," staged by the British Electrical Develop- ment association. The miracle of the food-growing shed is accomplished by tiers of shallow trays over which are spread grains of corn or any other cereal, although corn has been found to re- spond better than the others. Elec- tric heat applied to the trays acts so quickly and efficiently that 10 inches of growth can be brought about in 8 days. Plans Radio-Telephone Stations for Hudson Bay MOOSONEE, ONT.--A chain of radio-telephone stations is to be set up along the bleak coast of Hudson bay by Father Schulte, German "Flying Priest of the Arctic." The new stations, which will be paid from the proceeds of lectures given by Father Schulte in Canada and the United States, will be at Fort Albany, Attawav 'xat, East Main, Fort George, Chm'chill and Igloo Inlet. The "flying priest" serves 1,500,- 000 square miles in the Arctic and sub-Arctic, and the stations will aid him considerably in his work.
