IjO'loneer imperiled by threat of
Lconomic chaos. In the event that
the- Congress should fail to ,. act,
and act adequately, I shall accept
the responsibility, and will act."
Mr. Roosevelt said the purpose
if the Legislation "should be to
hold farm prices at parity, or at
levels of a recent date, whichever
is higher." He said "at the same
time that farm prices are stabiliz
ed, wages can and will be stabi-
ijed also. This I will do."
The President recalled that two
points of his original seven-point
anti-inflation program required leg
islation "an adequate tax pro
gram, and a law permitting the
fixing of price ceilings on farm pro
ducts at parity prices." He said
in enacting this Legislation
now reached the point of dan
ger to our whole economy . . . We
:annot hold the actual cost of food
and clothing down to approximate
ly the present level beyond October
1. But no one can give any as
surances that the cost of living can
beheld down after that date . . "
He renewed his request of last
April for an individual net income
limitation of $25,000.

hunting rabbits and birds . . . even if it is only with a

WAR AIMS AND FOREIGN
President Roosevelt, in an ad
dress broadcast to an international
student assembly in Washington
and short-waved to other parts of
the world, stated the war is "go
ing to be long and hard and bitter
(but) this time we shall know how
to make full use of Victory" to
build a better world.
He said the government will see
to it that men returning from the
fronts can resume their interrupted
careers and education atid that
work is provided for those willing
and able to work.
ARMY AND SELECTIVE
Assistant Secretary of War Mc
Cloy said that between February
1 and August 30 U. S. Army planes
destroyed 234 Japanese planes in
the air, compared with American
losses of 109. This record, togeth
er with the "flying tigers," record
of 218 Japanese planes destroyed
as against losses of 84, is due
mainly to the performance of the
P-40 fighters, he said. The army
said it has developend a system
of technical inspection and main
tenance supervision of aircraft
that is undoubtedly the finest in

It's speculative talk, naturally.
It scarcely requires saying that
the American, British and Mus
coviet high commands will sup
press the news as far as they can,
for the sake of taking Adolf as
much by surprise us possible. How
ever, it's difficult to see how a
formidable Yankee expeditionary
force can be smuggled across the
Atlantic without attracting a good
bit of the Fuehrer's attention. I.n
fact, he must have his suspicions
already. Nevertheless, the mili
tary complex is strongly for all
the secrecy it can manage until the
psychological moment arrives for
its bomb to go oil' and blow the
unprepared enemy to smitheration.
Still, there's plenty of gossip.
That the question arises, "Is
Adolf fixed to put up a pretty stiff
fight against an attack from his
westward?" goes without quoting

As has been remarked previous

though, would be fairly certain to

And what would be the internal
effect on the Axis?
The guess has been ventured be
fore that Germany's own morale is
increasingly a trifle rickety. The
last war demonstrated that those
Teutons can crack up in a hurry.
What mightn't a run of bad luck
do to it this time?
It's been known all along that
Italy's feet are cold. Maybe .Duce

Japan's a consideration.
Those Japs, it's recognized, want
to invade and gobble Asiatic Rus
sia. With the Soviets, hard push
ed on their German frontage, the
attempt probably wouldn't be a
poor gamble by the Mikado. That
would be decidedly calculated to
make Moscow fold up as one of the
United Nations. But it wouldn't
be at all a healthy experiment for
Nippon, with Russia's Siberian
hands left comparatively free by
United Nations' activities in the
opposite direction and with the
United States hammering at the
island empire from our side of the
Pacific, plus China in its imme
Doolittle Over Germany?
It's noteworthy that Gen. James
H. Doolittle, who bombed Japan's
chief cities not long ago, has been
in London recently. He was so
successful and so rattled Jap
morale that it's been wondered
why he didn't do it some more,
but apparently he's been figuring
that he could do more good as a
second-frontist over Germany and
is doping out that program. If
so, okay. Germany's closer to the
bull's eye than Japan is.
From all accounts. Chief of
Staff George C. Marshall of the
United States army will be the
percent tax on consumer spending
and high penalty rates for luxury
spending. At the request of Con
gress, the Treasury outlined a sales
tax levied against the retailer who
would pass it on to the consumer.
War expenditures in August were
$43,900 million, more than three
times greater than the amount
spent for national defense a year
ago. Income payments to indi
viduals in July were 21 percent
more than July, 1941 and were at
