THE news of the death of Luther Anderson last
Thursday brought a keen sense of personal
loss to every member of the staff of The Franklin.
Press. ; . v -
Mr. Anderson was for some time the Lake Emory
correspondent of the paper, and no corrections were
ever necessary in his copy. He was a frequent visitor
to the office, and telephoned various items of in
formation almost daily.
A studious man of quiet and retiring disposition,
Luther. Anderson was widely informed on many
lines, and was an interesting and edifying talker
when with those who were interested in the sub
jects he loved. He was a man of firm religious con-
victions and a most worthy member ol the Masonic
Luther's visits to this office were always welcome,
and his passing is deeply felt by those of us who
knew him well.
DOROTHY. THOMPSON, in her syndicated fea
ture of Tuesday, discusses at length the attitude
of the various powers in the event Hitler should
decide to invade Czechoslovakia, and also the forces
which may push the German Fuhrer into making,
that rash decision.
After examining the matter from all angles, Miss
Thompson (Mrs. Sinclair Lewis), one of the ablest
commentators of the present day, arrives at the
conclusion that the room in which Hitler can move
safely has reached its limit; and he must either re
treat or throw Germany and the world into whole
sale slaughter and destruction.
During the five years in which Germany has been
rearming and preparing for the conquest of Europe,
the nation has been under a strain which has al
most reached the breaking point. The gigantic war
machine has absorbed a large portion of available
man power, which would have to be released into
civil life if it were decided to follow the path of
. peace, and there would be no jobs for them. They
would become desperate and a revolution would
probably ensue which would, overthrow Hitler and
the entire Nazi regime.
The economic system in Germany seems to be
going to pieces, and with little gold and no. credit,
the only way out appears-to be a war which might
make the people forget other troubles and unite
them against a common foe ; and thus save the pres
ent government from collapse.
Italy is in somewhat the same position. Mussolini
has sacrificed everything in the effort to build a
powerful army, navy and air force, and now finds
himself with a machine he cannot control. He must
soon choose between a foreign war and an internal
explosion. Italy may be able to postpone for a while
the day of disaster, but Germany faces the issue
now, and what the end will be none can tell.
Hitler appears, to be faced with a problem to
.which all answers are wrong. It is war. abroad or
war at home before many months, regardless of the .
outcome of the present crisis in Czechoslovakia.
If the worst comes, Hitler might be persuaded to
come over here and take a job house painting for
the WPA, but he would have to show more skill
than he ever showed in Austria if he expected to
stay on the payroll. .
, . One thing Mussolini forgets in his grandiose
dreams of restoring the glory of ancient Rrime, is
that Italians have never been able to stand against
first class combat troops, .
