BIBLE THOUGHT FOR WEEK

A Free Press
There seems to be general assent
to the assertion that the United
ciAa rraa attain the only "free
St. t.h world, but this state
mr flhnuld be Qualified by under
standing that the press of the Brit
ish Empire, except as necessarily
fltriPted bv war. is essentially free.
No such statement can be made as
tn th Dress of Germany, Italy,
Tonnn fir Russia. In these countries,
freedom of the press, as we under
stand it, is unknown. In fact, one of
the contributing factors in the su
premacy of Naziism and Fascism was
the control of the press in Germany
In any new world order, designed
to promote the peace of the world, it
is highly essential that the freedom
of the press be universally recogniz
ed. Any nation that is unable to
withstand the impact of the uncen
sored publication of its news has
something to hide. The chances are
that it is something which they do
not want other people to discover.
Franklv. we doubt if Goering
would have been able to construct
frmanv'a husre air fleet in a manner
to confound the world if there had
not been a very rigid censorship of
news in Germany.
"Farmers wouldn't be human,"
says Secretary of Agriculture Claude
R. Wickard, "if they didn't get excit
ed when farm prices begin to move
Mr. Wickard reminds us that prices
for most farm products have been
low for a long time and that the
"upward movement is like a good
rain "at the end of a prolonged
Mr. Wickard is too intelligent,
however, not to remind his fellow
farmer About the collapse which fol
lowed the spiral of sky-rocketing ag
ricultural prices in the period from
1916 to 1920.
"Thirty-five cent cotton and
twenty-two dollar hogs were pleas
ant while they lasted," he said, "but
they didn't last long. The after
math debt, taxes and increased
coets lasted a lot longer than the
pleasure of the high prices. The
pain of deflationary prices lasted a
long time. Some of its effects are
still with us."
Farmers who are about to lose
their perspective, as some agricul
tural prices move upward, should not
forget that in 1920 thousands of
farmers who had gone into debt on
an advancing market found them
selves unable to pay for the lands
they bought. They were thrown in
to bankruptcy and many lost their
homes. Any farmer who has gone
through the experience does not have
to be reminded of the dangers of an
Britain's Foreign Secretary has
just been hearing what every woman
knows. iSir lames Barrie could have,
told him long ago. Women are nat
ural diplomats. In fact they are
diplomatic enough to talk straight
from the shoulder when the point
they wish to make is already obvious.
Twenty-two British women have
been talking that way to Mr. An
thony Eden. Three of them are
members of Parliament, a fact argu
ing persuasively in behalf of their
contention, which is that women
should be admitted to posts in Bri
tain's diplomatic service.
Women of other countries have
distinguished, themselves in govern'
( mental positions which were at one
time pen only to men, and in the
United tate diplomatic posts have
been t an 'to -women since 1925,
when XIs Lucille Atcherson was
- mde third secretary to the legation
; t Berne, Swttseriand, in 1925. Later

capacity, however, was Miss. Frances
E. Willis who took over the duties of
Minister to Sweden when " John N.
Morebead.took., paytesa, furlough

The services, ol Mrs; J. Borden Har

in 1937, are highlighted by the his

praise of Secretary of State Cordell

It is to be expected that one of the
results of the present war will be a
wider field of opportunity for women
and for others who have been pre
vented by narrow distinctions from
giving valuable service to their
countries. One of the striking as
pects of the First World War and
post-war period was the rise of wom

have shown themselves eminently
fitted for such careers, as the dele
gation to Mr. Eden may well have
emphasized without breach of mod

ing soldiers to restore them to their
former positions or to positions of
like senoirity, status and pay. It is
a moral and patriotic responsibility
of all employers to make certain that
these men who have made sacrifices
to fit themselves for the armed de
fense of our liberties be protected
themselves from any unnecessary
This means that every former em
ployer of a returning soldier should
not only see that he is promptly re
instated in his former job, or an
equivalent one, but also should en
deavor to give jobs to as many as
possible of those who do not have
jobs awaiting them. And that same
spirit of patriotic cooperation should
extend to every employer, regardless
of whether or not any returning sol
dier was formerly employed by him."
With direct reference to the obli
gation of former employers to re-instate
returning soldiers who were
former employees, Director Metts
pointed out that there can be no un
certainty concerning the mandate.
"The law," he said, "makes it
mandatory for the employer to re
store a returning soldier to his
former position, or a position with
like seniority, status and pay, 'un
less the employer's circumstances
have changed as to make it impossi
ble or unreasonable to do so'." And
he stressed that the mere abolish
ment of a position because the em
ployer had reorganized his business
does not remove the obligation.
