WAR MUST END
It was Benjamin Franklin, we
was a good war or a Dad peace
Whosoever said it, we are reminded .
of It by the disclosures made by
the Senate committee which is In
vestigating the "munitions racket."
Startling and shocking facts have
already been disclosed, and sinister j
figures such as most of us regard j
as creatures of fiction appear In their ;
true colors, as profiteers who make
money by arming the nations against
jeach other,. Sir Basil Zaharofl, the
"mystery man" of Europe, has been
disclosed as the agent for the great
munitions manufacturers of the
world, without regard to national
ity. American builders of subma
rines have been shown up as un
willing?op paper -to sell their sub
mersible torpedo-boats to both sides

agents doing precisely that?for a
An international ring has con
trolled the armaments of the great
nations for years, apparently. The
competition between nations, each
striving to be better armed than its
rivals, has been stirred up by1 high
pressure salesmanship and the cir
culation of rumors that this, that
or tHe Other country was contem
It is time an end was put to this
sort of thing. It is a real service
to the cause of humanity and world
peace that Senator Nye's commit
tee Is performing in bringing the
facts to light. If they shock the
other civilized peoples of the world
as they have shocked America, we
may hope for action by the League
cf Nations or by other mutual agree
ment to limit the manufacture of
munitions of war to governments
themselves. War should no longer
be profitable to any individual or
Freezing Sweet Corn
Retains Its Freshness
Sweet corn frozen on the' cob and
marketed 6 months to a year after
it is harvested may seem fresher
and sweeter than sweet corn bought
at th market with husks still fresh.
In fact, the "roast'ng ears" in win
ter may actually be fresher and
more nearly like corn just gathered
in the field. Freezing, according to
studies in the West coast laborato
ries of the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture, stops most of
the ? changes that normally^ take
place so rapidly in sweet corn after
it is gathered. *
It is a _ commonplace that city i
dwellers who Jiuy from city maf

eat it, all Within a half hour. Strict- i

periments for the Department,
?worked the material rapidly, and
usually gathered, sorted, graded,
husked, scalded, and cooled the corn
for freezing within 4 hours. The
scalding, they think, practically
stopped the chemical changes that
take place in corn-, and the subse
quent freezing kept them stopped,
so that the frozen product served

roughly the equivalent of com serv
