AVXNGVthe old Stars and
Stripes for all to sea on
the Fourth of July Is great
to let loose once In a while with all
the old patriotic pep .and enthusi
asm, it's a visible and appropriate
-' tribute to those sturdy ancestor of
Onrs who, on another Fourth of
' July, had nerve enough and sense
i Enough to declare to the world that
they were free men,, determined and
able to live by their own rale. And
It's a heap safer than shooting off
firecrackers. Unless . . .
Take that flag in your hands and!
' examine It carefully. Do yon find
, stamped label on It that says
, ,"Made In Japan"? If you do, go
tack to the firecrackers. They'll do
(Br less damage In the long run.
For that flag, with Its millions of
counterparts at large In this conn
(try, is putting American workers 1nt
of work, adding them to the relief
rolls and throwing them and their
, (families into virtual destitution. , it
3s the most ironic symbol . of an
oriental Industrialization and ex?
' port trade, based on mass produc
tion, slave wages and a rice-and-tea
latandard of living, that Is using the
bait of lower prices to, trick us Into
,bellevlng that ' we are "saving
money by buying Its inferior prod
ucts. f One particular adaptation of the
'American flag a little silk bow that
is fastened together with a pin
has definitely been the cause of a
. plant in Washington, D. C, which
was making the some article, and
.whose product the Japanese Ingeni
ously , copied, shutting down 'and
'throwing its employees out of work.
(The Japanese article could be made
jto retail in American' stores at 4
or 5 cents apiece, To make a profit,
'. the capital firm had to sell its prod
uct for .10 cents.
. In the field of novelties, the ever--1
alert Japanese manufacturer has
learned to cash in on the patriot
ism of his neighbor half way around
the world. He has even learned to
play upon the patriotic herb-worship
' of the child In school. One of the
most popular erasers in the Amer
ican school-supply stores, for in
stance. Is decorated with a picture
of ihe White House and the heads
!of three of our greatest Presidents.
It js "Made In Japan."
I Wrecks Textile Industry.
". . ' So accustomed are we to seeing
. the label of Japanese 'manufacture
, on many kinds of novelties, we lose
. sight of the fact that Japanese
. iprlce-cutting has opened the way
; for vast Inroads of Its products upon
- more than a score of American in
dustries. Most Important of these
... Is the textile Industry (chiefly cot
ton) and the hardest bit r area la
' New England, where plank , after
plant has been forced by the com
i - blnatlon of Japanese competition
f . and the processing tax to cease "op
:' erattons. ' . ' . ,
Cotton growers have been heart
ened from time to time by the fact
that Japanese Importation of Amer-
.lean cotton baa held up better than
that of other countries. On the oth-
er hand, this is what hag happened
' after ' the Asiatic Islanders have
. manufactured the' raw goods: '
American Imports of Japanese
gloves are up 600 per. cent over
' 1932; hosiery,.' 400 per cent; cotton
handkerchiefs and mufflers, 1,200
' per , cent ; bedspreads" and ; quilts,
.100 per cent'; and other manufac
- tured articles In like proportion. In
January. 1936, we bought 8,841,000
' square yards of Japanese cloth ; In
February,. 6,744,000 square yards,
and in March, 6,217.000, .This was
' more In each month, than the com
' blned total 'for three preceding
years, 1081, 1932 and 1933. ". The
. March Import was more than one
fourth the total American output for
.V the entire year lmlv'V''
" Meanwhile our own exports have
been In ft steady decline. In 1932
they were 873,000,000 square yards;
m m . m
Our Labor Starve
In 1933, 802,000,000, and In. 1834,
266,000,000. The chief reason for
this slump is that Japan has won
from us our Import markets n the
Philippines and Hawaii, and. a good
share of them in South America, .
Gov. Louis J. Branri of Maine, in
testifying before an Investigating
committee, said that every mill tn
Maine was operating at a 'loss.
Thousands of employees have been
forced to go on the relief rolls.'
And as Maine goes, so goes New
England. Especially In Massachu
setts and Bhode Island have the
"mills been severely crippled. In
Manchester, N. H., gluce the Japa
nese competition has begun to take
, a foothold, the Amoskeag Manufac
turing company, one of the largest
textile mills in' the world, has re
ported a 1934 loss of $1,000,000.
. Idle Plants Our Cost
' Figured in' dollars and cents the
Japanese imports from 'the United
States are twice our Imports from
Japan. But Japanese 'imports ' are
mostly raw cotton which is manu
factured and then sold back to us
at prices that cost us many millions
In Idle plants and unemployed
i Japan's skilled ,. laborers, work
ing for wages that .would hardly
keep American bodies and souls to
gether, have a genius for Imitating
American products. In appearance,
the Japanese article looks like the
American one, but . almost ' in
variably . the. materials used, and
therefore - the service to be ob
tained, leave much to be desired.
An American flashlight, made to
sell for 69 cents, has to compete,
often on the same, shelves, with a
Japanese flashlight 'identical Id ap1
pearance, which costs 20 cents less.
American., pencils,- sold for $2.40
a gross, are reproduced In ' Japan
to sell here for 94 cents a gross; a
device to sharpen them, made here
to sell for $1, has a Japanese coun
terpart of inferior metal which sells
for 37 cents. v- ': . '
Rubber manufacturing In the Unit
ed States dropped from 100,000,000
pounis to 30,000,000 In three years.
An American-made tennis shoe sells,
for 69 cents a pair. Its Japanese
counterpart for 89 cents. - An Amer
ican hot-water bottle costs 60 cents;
one lust like It but "Made In Japan"
costs exactly half that "
And so.it goes, air the ' Way from

can $3.60 Japanese, $1.25).- Here
Is a partial list of articles, made In

.'In the United States the1 fish-net
business is ft comparatively obscure
one, if not In point of size at least
In point of familiarity. Yet It did
not' take the thorough oriental!
very long to. discover It As an
example, - an -American fish netting
which once enjoyed a good sale at
75 cents is now giving way to the
Identical article of a Japanese com-.
petitor which sells for 82 cents.
Where were the beginnings and
what Is the cause of this wholesale
Invasion of American business by
the Japanese! Most authorities at-
tribute it to the lower standards ot
living and the cheap labor In Japan,'
and partly to the cotton processing
tax (the New Hampshire mill which
lost $1,000,000 last year paid $1,274.
173 In processing tax).
.. That Is only the situation as It
exists today. 'The seed of the
Japanese export business was plant- ,
ed In 1853. And the thing that
started the whole' trouble that, con
fronts us today was an American
admiral's nose I ' r!'
In that yearr Admlrar Perry land
ed on the Island empire and gave
the sons of Nippon their, first Intro
duction to' AmertC8n;practiees and
habits. The, Mitsui, which was then
as now the; Japanese family which
represents to their business Mor
gan, Rockefeller and Ford all rolled
into one, sent an artist, who might
be, compared t' the photographer
of today-, to sketch portrait of
Admiral Perry. The portrait Is still
on exhibition at the Mitsui museum
In Tokyo. . ,' v "
An Admiral'a Nose.
'. The artist .accentuated' the : adv
mlral's sharp' features and gave him
an extremely long and ridiculous'
nose. It looked much like one ot
our .over-exaggerated caricatures of
the present-day, but It was not a
caricature. The artist was simply
so amazed at an.ofdlnary occident
al nose that he, drew It all out of
Admiral Perry's nose Immediate
ly became the sensation of Japan.
It provoked an Insatiable curiosity
regarding people who could have
noses like that The artist was hur
ried down to the ship to make a
sketch of ' thatt and, of the tools
and 6ther belongings of the Ameri
cans. The Imitative ability of the
Japanese Immediately began. ' to
make Itself apparent, as the Island
ers began making things like those
of the admiral and his companions
for themselves, ;
These few American ideas be
came so popular that it" was not
long, before 'wealthy Japanese'were
sending the young hopefuls of their
; families .to the United States, clad
At first In kimonos, to study at
American universities, Tbeyhrought

A wave of .."joint selling compa

determination of the administration
to prosecute anti-trust, sults.,:
The original bargain of , NBA,,. it

was to agree to pay! better wages,

nate child .labor, end stop chiseling,
and ' In . return the , government
would go lightly oit. anti-trust agree
ments as to prices; distribution of

' Naturally, Industry liked the lat

But the . Supreme court, ', after

that the high court took due cog

that If the same case were' pre

One lawyer, studying " the problem
