Britain needs the Cotton for War purposes and she has a rubber surplus. Under the terms of the Trade both the Cotton and rubber were to be impounded for military emergencies. Uncle Sam cannot throw his rubber on the Market to take advantage of the High prices but England can proceed to consume her Cotton. The 82,000 tons of rubber will not deplete the British Supply nor can it affect the demand for rubber. Under these conditions the use of the rubber to buy an essential War commodity now when British purchasing Power must be conserved seems a fair Trade.

Member of audit Bureau of circulation agree with workers organizations. The Toronto news recites two clues of its origin both connected with the French word Quot Sabot a which Means a wooden shoe. The first theory is that the French peasants would stamp their feet to interrupt musical programs they did not like and the noise of their wooden shoes beating against the boards gave Rise to another theory is to at Quot Sabot also meant the shoes Cut in railway ties and that Quot sabotage originated when the French railway workers Tore up those ties in a big strike. Still another Story and the one a accepted by tile new Century diction Aryl is that the making of sabots was considered a speedy and Slipshod sort of a business and that when workmen in More exacting professions did work too quickly and therefore badly it was called a a sabotage much in the same manner As an unskilled Mechanic today is Refeit cd to sometimes As a Quot Blacksmith.

Not so one sided the United states made a profitable Deal with great Britain when the two nations kist june agreed to exch nge Cotton owned Gay the United states for British libber. The Exchange was made it a the basis of prevailing prices Tor both commodities. The Exchange was to be 680, xxx Bales of Cotton for 82, xxx tons of rubber. 680,000 Bales of Cotton for 2.0 h tons of rubber. Both the Cotton and the Rubier Are available in the markets it greatly altered prices. Cotton Las dropped and rubber has advanced a result is that Uncle Jam today has about,30 million dollars advantage in the Deal. This is the status of affairs As the plans Are devised for effecting tin Exi Bange of goods. Rubber not Only has advanced sharply being a War necessity but it May go Een Birdie on the face of the Deal the unite i states is a whale of a the tobacco election imminent is an election with a property qualification for Suffragan. No one can vote who had no share in the 1939 tobacco crop. Every owner of land on which tobacco was grown every tenant and every share Cropper Are eligible. Members of the families of these classes Are not eligible As the owner tenant and sharecropper must have Independent Bona fide status in each instance. The election is set for october 5 and contrary to the usual american practise a simple majority will not Rule. The vote for control of the tobacco acreage in North Carolina in 1940 must lie two thirds affirmative in order to prevail what will the tobacco growers of the state do with the Issue they Defeated it last year and the 1939 crop set a production record. Even with a i eat surplus of the Weed in sight the sales were running along fairly Well around 15 cents per Pound average when the War started and the British buyers dropped out of the sales warehouses. That was a blow the probable effect of which caused the warehouses to close. It is said that they will reopen october to regardless of the outcome of the voting on october 5. Our Region is a Center of former hostility to control. Growers in Guilford. Davidson Randolph and Forsyth helped defeat the control proposal last year. What should they do about the matter. Now ? the Enterprise does not profess to know but we Are impressed by the facts marshalled in support of control. The state department of agriculture agrees with the Secretary of agriculture that government Aid without control is impracticable. It is suggested that the Market might drop to a six cents level. With control what the plan is to throw $30, xxx too to $40,- xxx xxx of Federal Money into the equation. Using the facilities of the Imperial tobacco company on the auction floors and for warehousing and processing these funds would be expected to prevent demoralization and to Peg the Market around the figure for which tobacco was Selling when the warehouses closed. The Imperial tobacco company would have an option on the portion of the crop thus bought with government funds at Cost to the government. Those who urge a favourable vote for control Point out that conditions Are different now from those existing during the world War when inflated prices for tobacco followed a period of Low prices. Fifty five per cent of the crop normally is exported More than one third of All the Leaf grown going to the British alone. Elimination of this Export demand causes a crisis which those most intimately identified with the Market think a pro control vote alone can ease. Are they wrong in this judgment should the Farmer vote for reasonable guarantees or flout the suggestion and take his chances in the news at the outbreak of the world War there were a few German natives naturalized american citizens living in High Point. They were not disturbed before americans entry into the War but when this nation declared that a state of War existed things were changed. One citizen declared that life was made miserable for him he was constantly under suspicion because of his Gorman birth despite his Avo vels to the effect that he was every Whit a Loyal american. Something of that old feeling against the germans still exists in certain centers and Law enforcement officers Are almost daily getting false alarms about German spies or supposed germans acting in a suspicious manner.

Sabotage is extensively used in wartime to put out of commission machines used in the production of War materials and is used in the so called collective bargaining to bring to terms employers who refuse to United states or Canada. She has held More than 5.000 consultations on office problems. What do you think she says is the problem that she has to solve most frequently How to get along with other people she declares that this Lack causes More trouble than All other office problems put together and that this is As True in the Home As in the office. All Day Long she interviews one person after another trying to help people adjust themselves to the problem of getting along with others. One Day one of her students came to her. In an upset condition saying she had lost her Job. The girl was a dashing blonde Twenty years old. For six months she had been working in a Hank and now. The girls Superior was a woman much older and not in the least attractive. The pretty girl had Felt the older woman inferior because she was so Plain and she had taken no pains to conceal her feeling. The result was inevitable the Plain woman disliked the pretty blonde. The girl was a Good worker but the older woman gave her no credit and finally the pretty girl was dismissed. Here is the Way or. Giberson solved it she advised the girl to see the president of the Bank an appointment being made with the presidents Secretary with whom the discharged girl was acquainted. Or. Giberson insisted 1. That the president be told that the girl had done Good work for the Bank. 2. That she ask him if he could give her any suggestions so that she would not make the same mistakes in her next Job. .3. That she was in no Way to say she thought she had had an unfair Deal. And was not to reflect on her Superior. 4. And. Above All she was not to ask to be reinstated. The president was impressed. He had thought the girl had come to complain instead she honestly wanted advice. He liked her attitude not one growl against the older woman a so he gave the girl a Job in another Branch of the Bank. The girl was elated. Quot that old fuss budget will never bother me now Quot she said. That was bad. Or. Gibe son warned. There would be another person above her in her new position and she must learn that one who is older and More experienced must be shown deference. She must give up her mighty attitude and recognize the value of superiors. The girl determined to follow that advice realizing the fault had been hers and not the older woman a. She is now head of the department if she Hadnot changed her attitude. She never would have advanced and might have gone a Long time without a Jok Man Abolt town the editor for an opposition paper gave us this a a scoop. That two weeks ago. The London Ace for a new York Gazette cabled with permission of the censor that the Bremen was a British prize of War of True it confirms the column s item of weeks censors okayed it goes the legend because the British govt and the new York paper Quot have Long been sweethearts. However when a British statesman probably Chamberlain Learned of the leak he transatlantic telephoned the publisher Here and persuaded him to kill the Story. When we asked the opposition editor Why he gave the news beat to us and Why he did t use it himself his explanation was plausible. He said Quot in the last War Many editors Learned that by offending the British they ran the risk of having their transatlantic Cable rights denied.

Oct. 2. A the real question at stake in the fight Over revision of the neutrality Law is both simpler and More profound than the general trend of argument so far has revealed it to be. Basically it is just this is this country going to decide now once and for ail. That the most important thing is to see Hitler beaten or is it going to decide that Colton the Mast important thing is to stay Ai peace even if that May mean having to Swallow a Hitler Victory Over England and France underneath All of the window dressing that is what is at stake. The struggle Over repeal of the arms embargo has become a Symbol. Boiled Down what it symbolizes is a do we take sides or done to we the one driving Force behind the Effort to remove the arms embargo is a conviction that this country cannot afford to stand by and see Hitler w in. Is administration Neutral that conviction rests on the belief that the world just won t be big enough in the Long run. To hold both democracy and the totalitarian idea. Because of that belief this administration is not now Neutral. It wants to help England and France and that is Why it wants the arms embargo lifted. And since the actual Concrete effect of lifting the embargo is less important than its symbolic effect the administration in the Pittman revisions to the Bloom Bill a is willing to consent to practically any stiffening of the present Law if Only the embargo clause can be lifted. It ought to be added that the revisionists Are entirely sincere in saying that they do not believe that lifting the embargo will Lead to War. There is no need to doubt that the administration Means what it says when it announces that it proposes to keep the country at peace. But it is equally True that the reason for trying to get the embargo lifted is a desire to exert America s influence against Hitler the administration wants to see Hitler beaten. That is the Basic fart that underlies All of the talk about a True and the like. On the other hand there Are the isolationists. Like the administration they Are entering All of their attention on the arms embargo itself. The fact that the Pittman revisions give them practically everything but the embargo leaves them cold. For the conviction which holds them together is the conviction that the one important thing for America is to stay at peace that the calamity of going to War is so much greater than the calamity of a Hitler Victory that the latter ought to be risked rather than the former. Private opinions brought to Stokl Ace and the bitterness of the fight now being waged can to lie understood unless you understand the thing which Many men in Washington Are saying privately but which few say in Public. These private opinions boil Down to this that because the arms embargo does symbolize so much beyond its actual Content we Are liable to commit ourselves to something we can t Back out of if we repeal it. If that is we have an administration that wholeheartedly wants Hitler beaten and if we repeal the arms embargo in order to make hitlers defeat More Likely then the die is cast and we Are in for it whenever something beyond Mere repeal of the arms embargo is necessary to keep Germany from winning. That argument goes beyond everything else in explaining the isolationists tenacity. It weighs More with them even than the Prospect that repealing the embargo might build up a War Boom which would Quot automatically Quot draw us in As the 1916 War Boom is supposed to have done. Such a Boom could easily develop under the present Law in materials other than munitions. Indeed the Pittman Sions Are tighter in this respect the existing Law. But the embargo clause is the Crux of it not because of its actual Concrete effect but because of the implications which Are becoming Yound up in the whole fight Over the proposal to repeal it. Added to which there is the steadily growing feeling among the isolationists that a definite and conscious current to put this nation into the War is now in motion. He said it Revi than indians at Niagara Falls Are being taught How to make arrowheads. Things Are pretty bad on All the reservations since the War shut Down imports of Knickknacks souvenirs from Czechoslovakia. If subs keep blowing British shipping under the Waves it looks like Davey Jones will have to be getting a new larger locker take care of the overflow. Paris announces a new lipstick for wartime makeup. While it May be a precaution against mass attacks from the air. It will probably not incite no re ardent advances from individual soldiers. \
