CARRANZ/ THREATEI J9NTEXAS u. a if io OF INDUSTRIAL PREPAREDNESS 50 DECLARES PRESIDENT OF NAT. ASSO. OF COTTON MANUFACTURERS INDUSTRIAL PEACE IS A NECESSITY Urges Public and Legislative Hos tility Toward Business Be Al layed Till After War. New Loudon, *Scpt. 0.-Industrial preparedness, hand In nand with mil itary preparedness, was urged by Al bert Greene Duncan of Boston, pres ident of ehe Nationa! Association of Cotton Manufacturers, in an address before the semi-annual meeting of thnt association here today. "Wo have," said Mr. Duncan, "for many years relied on our splendid Isolation, and neither in military pre paration nor in tho full development pr our resources, havo^we ever. hu>lt up that independence, as ? nation, that has been in relations between tuan and man, tho keynote of our gov ernment'from Its inception. "As the expanse of oceans which separate our shores from possible Toes have made us indifferent to ad mittedly inadequate provisions for defense, our separation from the se vere commercial rivalries of Ehirope ave closed our.eyes to thc necessity of commercial independence. Serene In our determination not to be a par ty ny European struggle, we nev er ngined we could bo tho victims D> a quarrel not of our own making, nor that any possible embroilment of other nations could be so far reach ing that we should suffer from its effects in our world trade relations and even in pur domestic affairs. "Military preparedness and indus trial preparedness should go hand In band. The sinews of war must be provided by the latter before the form er can be developed to its full extent, and by commercial preparedness, 1 mean not only the strengthening of those Industries which would neces sarily contribute supplies for a pos sible war, but all enterprises of man ufacturo, transportation and distri bution, so hint we can put behind any body of men enlisted in the nation's defense a united, prosperous, con tented and determined population' and be able to supply all the varied wants of our people and furnish the fullest support to the government in any time of trial. "We have learned tho sad lesson that trade rolations with other coun tries, however, firmly rooted, aro sec ondary to military exigencies. We have seen our mills handicapped and In some cases forced to close or cur tail, due to shortness of wool, dye stuffs, chemicals and other needed supplies, many of which om* country would have been amply able to sup ply if the Idea of commercial and In dustrial preparedness for any emer gency had been kept in min;-." Mr.. Duncan declared that while the Industrial depression in this country had been in part temporarily righted by a demand for products which rite United States alone could supply, the trf.t should hot be over looked that the presnnt difficulty ot l/.'.e settlement of foreign balancea !n American favor might seriously cur tail prospective exports. "Our national honor, and. even our existence" he said, "may depend upon ] tba extent and the thoroughness in the next few months of our military preparedness, but as a basis and ground work which alone can make possiblo the .enormous expenditures Involved, our domestic affairs - should have equal attention. In the midst Of international complications, when we know not what a day may bring for iii, it la the duty of every true American to stand by the president In his efforts to preserve our national dignity and honor. On the other band may we not urge lt as an equal duty upon the president to stand by us in an effort to bring back and main tain the business prosperity of the country."
