THE BRECKENRIDGE NEWS CLOVERPORT, KENTUCKY
Situation in Europe.
Europe, according to Sir George
Parish, is in a condition more appall
ing, more dangerous to civilation than
when the war was on. In an article
published in the London Contempor
ary Review, he sets forth the condi
tion of Continental Europe, and by
his statement of facts, pleads for
greater haste in the co-operation of
nations to overcome these conditions
which, he states are a menace to the
Food production in France, Italy,
Germany and Austria-Hungary is
bout half the pre-war average Fuel is
equatly short. They can buy and pay
for these necessaries only by exports,
sale of securities, or credit. They have
no goods to export; France and Ger
many both lost their foreign securities
amounting in each case to about $7,
500,000,000, and the Central Powers
especially have no means of establish
ing credit. Unless these conditions are
met there must be a great death toll
by starvation this coming year.
No nation can live by itself alone,
and Sir George truly states that the
welfare of any country is closely in
tertwined with that of all others.
Hence the great problem, of civiliza
t'on is to be saved, is to keep these
suffering nations alive, whether they
be French, Italian or German. The
deseruction of any one people would
have serious consequences upon the
whole world. Unquestionably our own
prosperity is related to that of every
nation in Europe, including those with
whom we fought.
France and Italy, deeply in debt
and with paralyzed industries, are
waiting for reparations and indemni
ties from Germany and Austria with
which to rebuild their factories. But
this writer claims that such hopes are
a delusion, for Germany and Austria
are deprived of the means of getting
ny credit, without which they cannot
produce or pay. Meanwhile, France
and Italy sink deeper into the morass
of debt and suffering.
Great has been the loss of France.
Sir George holds that if it were possi
ble to rebuild the ruined factories and
wmk the mines , and farms, France
would soon be able to pay her way
Undoubtedly the hard working Ital
ian and German populations also
would soon be exporting goods to
pay for further advances if supplied
with the credit necessary to obtain
food and raw materials. Unless they
have this help, the consequences, he
holds will be appalling.
Financiers and statesmen may differ
as to the means and methods of help
ing them; they cannot, however, dis
agree with the statement of fact that
conditions now in Continental Furope
differ only in degree from those of
actual war. This fact, so ahiy proved,
drives home the point that "furtther
delay will be perilous." Wall Street

T. O. Beatty,
Why not serve a rabbit dinner in
stead of a turkey one oo Thanksgiv
ing Day? In many sections of the
country wild jackrabbits or the cot
tontails are plentiful; a good hunts
man has but to spend a few hours in
the country with his gun and return
with game bag overflowing. In some
localities Belgian or New Zealand
hares are raised on a commercial
scale, and city markets at this time of
the year usually have a good supply
of both the hares and game rabbits at
