Good To Look At
Illustratively. I crossed once I
from San Francisco to Yokohama
on one of Toyo Kisen Kaisha's
'Oriental Steamship company's)
liners, one of a considerable newly
built fleet. To the eye, it was an
'egant big boat. But presently I
ascertained that, when those craft
were launched, in Japanese yards,
there proved to have been some
sort of miscalculation as a result
f which it was practically impos
sible to keep 'em floating right
side up. It finally was managed,
by ballasting 'em enormously where
it did the most good, but they were
tricky critters at that.
Another thing, the Mikado's
aviators always have had an ex
traordinary high percentage of
crashes. One of themselves, a
friend of mine, explained it to me,
at the time I was there, on the
ground that his countrymen are so
frightfully "cruel to machinery".
It also frequently is mentioned
that the islands' cities are very vul
nerable to attacks by enemy
planes, because they're so largely
built of wood. To say that's to put
it mildly. They're largely built of
paper, held together by a few sup
porting sticks. A bunch of flyers
from Vladivostok or from an
American carrier off shore unques-'

It could be shut off from all its

mainland. As for its financial
status, it could be killed dead is
j nearly so now.
Nevertheless, the jod would db
an awful pest to Uncle Sam.
He'd get some help, to be sure
principally from China. Britain
might spare him a few men-o'-war,
and he'd be provided with bases on
the Chinese mainland coast and at
Singapore and in the Philippines,
the Dutch East Indies, Australia
and New Zealand. : v
The Chinese, though, would be
most useful to him. England and
its dominions are too busy else
where to be very effective and the
Philippines and Dutch East India
haven't the sea strength to supple
ment such a Campaign. The Chi
nese, however, would count, as a
land adjunct Perhaps Siberian
Russia would, too.
For all that, it's a mess that

Others Asked To
Sell Scrap Iron
An ureent anDeal to the farmers
nf Havwood eountv to market their
scrap iron as a part of a national
scrap iron collection campaign was
made this week ty j. L.ynn,
chairman of the Haywood County
USDA Defense Board. The iron
and steel collected will be used in
the national defense program.
Mr. T.vnn said that the secretary
of agriculture has called American
farmers to co-operate in the na
tional camnaifirn now underway to
help provide necessary iron and
steel supplies for the defense pro
gram. Information received by the
defense board emphasizes that
America needs all the scrap iron
nd steel it is possime to get. aieei,
it was pointed out, is needed not
only for production of munitions,
but for making farm machinery.
Farmers and others are being
nskpd to market their scran iron
at current prices, which are those
that have been set by UrJH. Mr.
Lvnn emphasized that the govern
ment does not want farmert to
scrap useful machinery. Where
machinery is being kept for spare
parts, it is suggested that parts be
taken off the machine or article and
stored, and the remainder of the
metal sold for scrap.
The scran collection campaign is
heinir conducted through commer
cial scrap iron dealers, as they are
in a position to sort this material
and to nrenare it so that it can be
used without furthe'r sorting when
it reaches the steel mills.
Any one who has scrap iron for
sale ia advised to get in touch
with the chairman or any of the
county USDA defense board or
with the county farm agents' office,
There may come times in our
lives that we regret not having
spoken certain words on certain
occasions, yet most of our regrets
come from having said too much

Urges Tests For
Many motorists know traffic laws,
rules and regulations, but cannot
apply them when they get under
the wheel, according to Jerry Rog
ers, chief of police of Hazelwood.
Every driver should be given a
driving test before getting a driv
"I would like to see a law which
would require a checkup every
3 months of vehicles on the high
ways," he told Rotarians last Friday.
After doing those two things,
Chief Rogers would send every
person caught driving while drunk,
to the roads, and not accept a fine,
and he would make a severe pen
alty for fast driving.
Until something of that nature
is put into force, this country
need not expect anything but a
continual rise in highway traffic
accidents, he pointed out.
"I don't believe in fixing tickets.
I don't care who the person is, if
he or she is violating the traffic
laws I say they should be arrested,
and no partiality shown," he said.
Others taking part on the pro
gram included: Jack Messer, M. D
