WM AT WASHINGTON
By Huso S. Sims, Washington Correspondent
U. S, POLICY PLAIN
TWO THREATS OF WAR
(1) JAPANESE IN FAR EAST
(2) GERMANY IN EUROPE
PARTIAL WAR LIKELY
TO CONTROL THE SEAS
THE SITUATION TODAY
BIG GUNS DECISIVE
The foreign policy of the United
States, as enunciated by the Presi
dent, approved by Congress and en
dorsed by the people of this country,
is in direct conflict with the foreign
policy of Japan in the Far East and
oi uermany in Europe and adjoining
The only way to be certain that
this country will not become engaged
in war with a member of the Axis
group is to bring about, by com
promise and concession, some agree
ment between the foreign policies
v which inevitably means conflict un-
In the Far East, the Japanese
pursue a policy which conflicts with
principles espoused by the United
States for many years, including the
Open Door in China for the com
merce of all nations, and the terri
torial integrity of the Chinese na
tion. Certainly, war Ls possible between
Japan and the United States unless
an adjustment of these conflicting
principles can be brought about.
Japanese control of the trade of the
Far East runs counter to the hope in
this country for a progressive de
velopment of world commerce and
also clashes with our dictrine of the
freedom of the seas.
When we survey the issues that
exist between the United States and
Germany, we find that an inevitahlp
clash is indicated by Hitler's asser
tion that he will sink American ships
inat interfere with his war pur
poses, tnat ne win not accept our
definition of the freedom of the
seas, and that when the war ends, he
will make trade upon his own terms
I he United States, on the other
hand, says it will fight to protect
American shipping on seas outside
the combat zones, that we will fight
to insure safe delivery of war goods
to England, that we will fight to
prevent Hitler from securing control
of the seas and to prevent his ac
quiring Iceland, the Azores or the
Cape Verde Islands, or other places
which could be used as bases of at
tack against the Western Hemi
sphere. Obviously, the conflicting deter
minations of the United States and
Germany will result in hostilities
unless one country or the other
backs down. At this time, the Proa.
ident has Hitler in a position where
he must take offensive action to pre
vent our supplies from reaching Eng-
iana, or to stop them on their way
to other areas outside the combat
zone. On the other hand, the United
.states is m a position where it will
have to take offensive action to pre
vent Hitler from acquiring possible
as the situation stands now, the
umrea states will make no overt
move against Germany although it
will continue to act under its own
interpretation of international law.
American ships will carry American
goods in accordance with the poli
cies of this nation.
Should German airnlanps nr w.
ships attempt to stop this commerce,
it can be asserted, upon very good
grounds, American aircraft and war
ships will be used to protect the
American merchant ships. Whether
such incidents will lead to a general
war remains an open question. For
the present, our policy is pronounced
and is being gradually and more ef
fectively implemented. The next
move is up to the Axis powers.
Since the passage of the Lend
Lease Bill, the United States has
been a non-bellieerent allv of th
British Empire, pledged to the defeat
of the Axis powers, but with the
scope of our assistance limited by
our own decision.
We have promised to provide, in
unlimited quantities, the supplies
that the British mav reauirn tn H.
feat Hitler. We have not committed
ourselves to take any offensive ac
tion against Germany, but since the
President's fireside chat, it is crystal
ciear tnat lorce will be used, if ne
cessary, to guarantee the devilery
of supplies and to protect this coun
try from the evil which would exist
if Hitler or the Axis group, secures
control of the high seas.
The importance which is placed
upon the control of the seas is ex
plained by the belief that Hitler will
lose the war if he fails to acquire
control of the seas.
Tofirether, Great Britain nnri the
United States can dominate the At
lantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans.
They control two-thirds of the
world's industrial machinerv inii
three-quarters of the world's mineral
resources. Controlling the seas, thev
can exchange these resources on their
own terms. Moreover, they will have
access to the resources of Latin
America, as well.
Without sea control, the United
States and Great Britain will have
independent world commerce,

Apple Blight Disease
H. R. Niswonger, Extension horti
cuitunst of State College, reports
that there has been a severe outbreak
of the apple blight disease in many
sections of the State. He says num
erous inquiries have been received by
the College Horticulture Department
from orchardists, asking what can be
done at the present time.
Niswonger says that, as a rule, it
is advisable to wait until the dormant
season and then cut out the blighted
twigs and branches, and rub off the
blighted fruit spurs when pruning
operations are carried out.
"However," he said. "R C.
erman and J. S. Sain of Lincoln
County and V. 0. Sipes of Catawba
County secured 50 to 75 percent con
trol of the disease by spraying their
trees at the blooming period with
Bordeaux mixture. These men have
been applying the bloom spray for

pounas or Jiydrated lime, to 100 gal
lons of water. Mr. Sipes used this
iormuia, Jtiut Mr. Leatherman and
Mr. Sain used only 1 pounds of
bluestone In the mixture
Mswonger says that the secret of
thfa method of controlling the apple
uiigui tusease is to apply the spray
immediately after the first blossof

some varieties of apples, such as
Golden Delicious, do not open at the

to me status of secondary powers,
with incalculable effect upon the
standard of living of their people.
Responsible officials in Europe,
likewise, recognize the importance of
world trade. Only recently Presi
dent Wetter, of Switzerland, while
accepting participation in European
collaboration, insisted that this would
not be enough because "we depend
on won a trade and we cannot live
separate from the Countries nvfrAc
without seeing our national economy
aim our culture decline." Conse
quently, he said that the Swiss hope
and purpose are "for a better and

A demand, far exceeding the sup
ply, for commercial ewes and regis
tered rams is indicative of a very de
finite increase in the interest in
sheep throughout North Carolina, re
ports L. I. Case, Extension animal
husbandman of N. C. State College.
Response to the interest, in the form
of importations of Western ewes and
rams, has been suggested to county
farm agents by the Extension spec
ialist. Case said that Kentucky, one of
the major lamb-producing states, is
now buying about 80 percent of her
ewe stock. Tennessee and Virginia
are also increasing purchases of
County agents are compiling lists
of farmers who are interested in
buying Western ewes, and registered
rams from either Western North Car
olina or neighboring states. "We
think we can buv Western
around $1,050 for yearlings and
$6.50 for lambs, delivered," Case said.
The ewes are mainly coming into
the Southeast from the Northwest,
and are Hampshire-Rambouillett
cross-breds. They will weigh about
75 pounds at the unloading point.
They are plain in appearance but
win develop mcely under good care
and will shear about 8 pounds of hirii
quality wool. They are practically
parasite free. When they are bred
as yearlings they will usually bring
irom u to luu percent lamb crops
Aicer tne iirst year the ewes
bought by Kentucky sheep men have
averagea about 130 percent lamb
Case also reported to county
agents the sources of registered
rams available at this time. He sup
gested that farmers interested in in
creasmg or entering the sheep-raising
business should contact their
farm agent immediately. Several
Eastern North Carolina bankers have
shown interest in financing the
portations of Westtern ewes.
