NotHmg As Usual : ;
! A "Hetjn just issued by the Chamber of Con-A--
merce o he X'nited State9 champion the
recommendations that have been made from vari
ous quarters ' that no niw industries lioulj be
created at this tim unless they are Such as wilt
contribute directly and effectively to the Miccess
ful prosecution of the -war..". There is a warning
joined o the effect that the'time is coming wbert
existing industrhr;nut calculated tohat end. will
be? restricted nd tBrwe tlietn piiy b$ ,,"??7f
natd altogether. ' ' v J V - -'
'The sooner the entire country sets its song Of
industrial patriotism to this tune the better. It is
bound to become popular , eventually : why not
how? In no other way will the war be won with
so .much expedition and so little ultimate loss. The
recognition of this fact alone, should enhance and
advance the popularity of the doctrine.
At the beginning of the war good people: .of" all
classes in this country talked about "business as
usual." It had a right stable and sensible ring in
the ears. Soon,, hovtevcrythe more,, wise began to
see things in another light. '.'.The new doctrine is
that the one business of the nation is war-..' This
mighty rod of Aaron, converted into a serpent; in
continently swallows up all the little contestants.
The wizard with their private pursuits have one
course left. "That is to Jjecotne patriots, heart and
soul. It will be better Tor the country and better
for them, v: , '.'.'.. ;. t. ', ...,
.'vThis applies as well to the individual in his .ev
ery "capacity and acty'ity. With him jierhap rests
the solution of the problem. - When he Begins to
cut out-nonessentials, not iiian ascetic spirit be
yond war's requirements, but in the spirit of true
service which will not permit an ounce of construc
tive effort to be distracted; the nonessentials will
promptly respond to the law, of supply and de
mand. .' ' .. r Vr j: ' ' '." ".,-.
lV Great Britain Went against the "business as
Usual" slogan and paid the penalty. Under stress
there came a right-about-face. The result has been
that. Great Britain is stronger, than ever, .while
business is doing wonders, although not at the old
stand. ' ;' 4''V- ''V.'";'. ' s V v;;.
War arid Tourists: -
THE war, instead of reducing tourist travel on
.the mainland towards the Southern . resorts
appears to have increased it. ,. A despatch, ffQfn
