4 Shocking Rebuke
One of the greatest tributes the human can be
paid is loyalty as expressed by Indonesians for
their masters in the battle of the East Indies.
The gallant Dutch have done a masterful piece
of fighting in the Pacific these past three
months, and it must be''remembered that Ja
pan has never declared *.var on them And it
should also be remembered that eighty per cent
of the Dutch fighters are just merely Dutch
subjects. When a master can command the re
spect of his subjects to the point that his sub
jects will lay down their lives for him. it is
reasonable to believe that human understand
ing entered into their basic transactions.
What about Britain and her Indian subjects?
Well, Britain, lulled into a complacency by its
ultra-conservative and tea-sipping gang, is wor
ried about its subjects in India and what they
will and will not do since Japan has advanced a
new crisis. A little yellow man, Generalissimo
Chiang Kai-shek, pleaded for the British cause
in India, which in itself is a shocking rebuke for
Britain s conservatives.
Britain is understanding the real meaning of
Democracy now In this country we still drag
labor against management and management

Bp !\ot Afraid!
By Ruth Taylor.
Too many of us are in the grip of fear today.
It is a fear that is blind, unreasoning, devastat
ing in its effect. We could not say of what we
are afraid. One thing is certain?it is not a pure
ly physical fear. It is a fear of the changes that
war will bring, uf the new hardships, the un
tried difficulties, the loss of old land marks, of
certain securities that were dear because they
were familiar. It is a fear of being afraid.
There is no need to be ashamed of fear. Fear
actually signifies a-farm of .foresight?an abil
ity to see ahead?to imagine a possible evil. But
it is lacking the vision which enables us to see
beyond the ultimate good. The half versed trav
flnr Wilrmg up :il the lowering clouds sees bad
weather?but the trained pilot thinks beyond
to the upper sky and a clear passage above the
What is important about fear is the power to
conquer it. It is this ability to be afraid and not
give way to fear that lifts man above the ani
mals It is the power to pause and wait?not run
in blind terror?to go ahead and walk steadily
not only in face of danger but in spite of fear.
To meet a fear face to face and not be dogged
by its hot breath at the back of the neck?that
is the mark of man.
Whenever I'm afraid?which is often?I think
of an English lad who died twenty and more
years ago. He conquered fear. He lost his life?
but even 111 the dying, left a source of strength
to others He was a timid child - but he was
taught to fight fear. His sister told me how he
would be the first to do the daring things ? be
cause he was afraid. He feared the dark?so
he always went first. He feared horses?so he
put his pony at the stiflest jumps He would just
say, "I'm the one that's afraid, so I'll do it." He
hated war, suffering, blood?so he went out with
the "Old Contemptibles" and was killed in the
Mons retreat, staying behind with a wounded
soldier. But he still lives His brother, when
praised for his own courage, would only say,
"I couldn't let Noel down?and 1 was afraid."
It is that kind of courage we need today. The
courage that will enable us to say, "I dread
what is coming?but I can face it." Fear is nev
er half so bad when you walk up to it."

After Poland had been overrun all books were

Those who engage in these educational ac
TrvTnnr quite natui ally realize that they?are?
running great risks. That they are willing to
take such risks is a tribute to the dogged hero
ism of the Polish patriots. They propose- to
maintain at whatever cost their national in
tegrity. The spirit of these stricken people has
j?>t been broken.
We in America must not permit the stress
and strain of war to permit us to ignore the ne
cessity of maintaining adequate educational
facilities for the youth of the land. Although
everything must be subordinated to the immed
iate task before us of winning this war, we
would do well to remember that we must also
prepare for peace. When victory comes we shall
need trained men and women to direct the des
tinies of a new world, freed forever from the
fetters of tyranny and despotism.
Our colleges and public schools must be given
every support that they mpy continue to train
adequately those who tomorrow will have this
nation in their hands.

Farm Land* In Demand
Christian Science Monitor.
After a full decade of declining values for
farms, a new movement has appeared this year
which may become a land boom unless steps are
taken to keep prices in hand. During the de
pression the life insurance cumpanics became
the largest holders of farm land. One company
has recently repoi ted?that It has sold more"
farms in the first nine months of 1941 than in
The Federal Reserve Hoard recently found
specific reasons for the advance in farm-land
values: higher prices of farm products, high
loan rates on basic crops, low interest on farm
mortgages, increasing demand by urban dwell
ers for country homes, lower real estate taxes
in rural areas, and the purchase of farms as
a hedge against inflation.
Many rural leaders are concerned lest a
land boom develop comparable to that in the
last war which resulted in many bankruptcies
after the emergency was over.
The lesson in land values after the last war
was a bitter one. It need not be repeated if Fed
eral, State, and local organizations will stress
the use of profits to build a reserve for the fu
