These are treasured throughout the years, and may include some special kindness shown, some hospitality extended, some word of encouragement spoken at the psychological moment. A rec- ommended book, an appreciative note may have given to us last- ing pleasure and inspiration. It is decidedly ungrateful to ac- cept so much without giving all we can! So let us take time to consider how many beautiful memories we are creating for others. Are we prompt in writ- ing the letter which will bring happiness and comfort to some one waiting to hear?

News Review of Current Events the World Over Crop Damage From Drouth Mounts Assassin Tries Kill Edward VIII Townsend and Coughlin Form Alliance. tO By EDWARD W. PICKARD Western Newspaper Union. THE nation's drouth worrie~ con- tinued unabated after scattered showers in widely separated a~eas of the Midwest and the Northwest failed to eliminate the heat. Regions bordering the Great Lakes enjoyed cool breezes brought by a high pressure area from Hudson Bay. But the meager rainfall in t h e drouth-stricken belt did little toward Dr. Tugwell bringing relief and crop deterioration continued on a vast scale through- out the parched states. Loss of life throughout the United States from the unprecedented heat wave exceeded 3,850, an all-time high. Agronomists in Minnesota. Ne- braska, Iowa, Illinois and Ohio ex- pressed apprehension over the out- look for the corn crop unless gen- eral rains should develop rapidly. In principal cities the price of milk was advanced one cent a quart as the result of drouth condi- tions. Prices of meat, however, dropped with the influx to market of drouth cattle. The possibility of an upward trend later on was seen, however. Completing a tour of the drouth areas, Secretary of Agriculture Wallace declared the nation need have no fears of a food shortage, and assailed those "who '.-.ave tried for their own purposes to scare the consumers about food scarci- ty." He added: "There is no ex- cuse for substantial increases in food prices now." Arriving at Bismarck, North Da- kota, to help co-ordinate drouth re- lief enterprises, Rexford G. Tug- well, resettlement administrator, was informed that approximately 60,000 farm families in the state were among the needy. A confer- ence of state and federal officials in Bismarck developed a three-fold plan for the relief of dwellers in the desolated areas of the Dakotas, western Minnesota, eastern Mon- tana and Wyoming. These includ- ed: Immediate advancement of mon- ey to needy families, repayable out of WPA earnings; granting of funds to farmers desiring to keep small livestock herds for the pur- chase of feed and subsistence to be repaid by work on WPA proj- ects; loans and grants to owners of large scale cattle enterprises to cover the cost of shipping animals to other states for feeding. THE attempted assassination of King Edward VIII of England in London brought great alarm to the English speaking world. Th.e attempt was made near Hyde Park and the monarch's life was saved by a woman bystander who grappled with the would-be assas- sin and wrested a pistol from him The king was re- turning to Bucking- ham palace from 12 unions grouped as the Commit- tee for Industrial Unionization. The council's action was looked upon as a peace move in the crisis that threatens open warfare in the labor movement. It was precipi- tated by the drive to organize 500,- 000 workers in the steel industry into one big industrial union by John L. Lewis, president of the United Mine Workers and his fol- lowers. The charges against tbe Lewis group include "competition as a rival organization with the A. F. of L."; fomenting an insurrection within the Federation; violation ol contracts they have entered into with the Federation when granted their charters. AN ALLIANCE between Dr. Francis E. Townsend, Father Charles E Coughlin and the Rev. Gerald L. K. Smith in the interests of a third party was announced at the Townsendite conven- tion in Cleveland, attended by 12,000 followers of the California d o c t o r who advocates pen- sions of $200 per month for every person over sixty. In an address be- fore the convention, Dr. Townsend Father Coughlin bit- terly denounced the present admin- istration and President Roosevelt and called upon the delegate~ to follow Dr. Townsend in endorsing the candidacy of William Lemke for the presidency on the Union ticket. Earlier the New Deal had been the target of botlt Dr. Townsend and the Rev. Gerald L. K. Smith, now leader of the late Huey Long's share-the-wealth movement. Townsendite candidates who must run on the Democratic ticket planned a pro-Roosevelt demon- stration. Pro-Roosevelt delegations representing 11 states signed a res- olution urging that no "me~.~er or fusion" with a third party be made. A tactical victory was won by the New Deal forces in the election of Willis Mahoney, Townsendite-Dem- ocratic candidate for senator from Oregon, as chairman of the resolu. tions committee. THE arrest of former Lieut. Commander John S. Farnsworth of the United States navy on a charge that he had sold confiden- tial naval data to a Japanese of- ricer marked what observers be- lieved was the beginning of a roundup of persons suspected of supplying navy *secrets to foreign powers. Declaring that he had obtained nothing of importance from the navy and gave nothing to the Jap- anese that "could not have~ been obtained in the public library in Washington," Farnsworth at first pleaded not guilty to the charges. Farnsworth is charged with tak- ing from the Navy department and later selling it to the Japa,ese gov- ernment, a book entitled "The Service of Information and General Security." The book is on naval tactics and according to officials, is rated as "confidential."

Ayers, economist of Cleve- land, declared that statistics on all in~portant business had shown sub- stantial and "healthy increases" since the first of this year. Strikes, drouth and other difficulties have not affected increases in employ- ment, markets and securit:- ex- changes, the economist said.

Here working men and women, thousands of them, ride to and from work, ten to thirty abreast, depending on the width of the street. They have the right of way, prop- erly, in a democracy. So it used to be in America, when automobiles were new, small boys shouted "Get a horse," and New York state law compelled the automobile driver to stop his car and engine, while a farm wagon passed, if the farmer raised his hand, or even lead the farm team past his machine if the farmer re- quested it. Here the car stops, while bicycles circulate around it on both sides. Similarly, you stop, later, meeting flocks of sheep, on roads across the salt marshes" of the Vendee. France is a land of bicycles, of many political parties, and, at the moment, a land of strikes. Like all other European countries, it is a land of permanent war scares. America looks upon war as a dis- tant, improbable possibility, and when it comes spends billions on airships that do not fly, ships that never go to sea, and similar evi- dences of patriotic dollar-a-year ef- ficiency. Europe's nations live in a state of fear, as an American family might live if it knew that, at any moment, well-equipped gangsters from next door might en- ter, "shoot up" the household and set fire to the house. American travelers leaving the boat by railroad, descending in Paris at th~ Saint Lazare station, were surprised to find crowds fight- ing each other, not waiting for Germany, crowds made up entirely of Frenchmen of different political opinions. Some wore ribbons with the red, white and blue colors of the French flag; others, more numerous, wore the plain color red. One side sang the "Marseillaise," national hymn of France since the revolution. Others wearing small red flags sang the "Internationale," official song of the Communists the world over, from Moscow to Harlem. Crowds grew bigger, the French- men sang the two hymns at each other, more and more violently, with excellent voices, not one out of tune, all knowing the words of their respective hymns. The "Mar- seillaise" says, "Let us go, chil- dren of the fatherland, the day of glory has arrived"; the other says, "Arise ye prisoners of starvation; arise, ye wretched of the earth." It was a scene never to be de- scribed, now that Dooley is dead, and Artemus Ward. Nobody both- ered the descending foreigners from across the water. A few Frenchmen hit other Frenchmen, not hard, then agents of the Surete, whom we should call po- licemen, gradually dispersed the crowds, that met and sang at each other again the next day.
