TOP 0’ THE MORNING
I have an idea that the Lord Jesus saw how
men were going to stumble over this doctrine
of election, so after He had been thirty or forty
years in Heaven, He came down one Lord's
day in Patmos, and said to John, “Write these
things unto the churches.” John kept on
writing. His pen flew fast. And then, just as
he was about to finish, the Lord said: “John,
before you close the book put in one more in
vitation: The Spirit and bride say, Come.
And let him that heareth say, Come. And let
him that is athirst come. And whosoever
will, let him take the water of life freely.”
—D. L. MOOTY.
THE ITALIAN TERMS
On their surface the terms of the Franco-Ital
ian armistice seem surprisingly generous to
beaten France, especially so when compared
with the harsh exactions insisted upon by the
Germans.
Mussolini may appear to have exercised a
remarkable moderation in making no mention
of Nice, Savoy or Corsica. In Africa he was
content with the use of the French port of Ji
buti, in French Somaliland, and the demilitari
zation of zones along the borders of French
Mediterranean ports as Hitler is to occupy
French Atlantic ports. His troops are to remain
in control of only that email part of the French
border they may have taken by force of arms.
But these modest impositions cannot hide the
fact that the armistice strips France of the pow
er to resist whatever Italian demands are made
later. The German terms virtually denuded
her of her armed forces and the material they
must have. Th Italian terms round out the pic
ture. There is to be no French army capable of
fighting. The French naval bases on the Medi
terranean are to be made useless. French naval
units on the sea are to be handed over,‘if th
Petain govrnment can manage to get its orders
obeyed, which at present is doubtful, and even
though it is denied that Italy intends to take
the fleet when the war is over there is no
guarantee on this point.
Clearly, France is at the mercy of the two
conquerors. She can rise again only by their
consent. And we may judge how much clemen
cy the French can expect by the fact, now made
clear, that Hitler means to keep Part of the
French west coast. Mussolini’s terms may not
seem severe, but only a British victory can pre
vent him from presenting his real reckoning
later on.

BRAND RETIRES
TN RETIRING to Private life today,. James
Neveland Brand completes 5l years of con
tinuous service with the Atlantic Coast Line
and its predecessor, the Charleston, Sumter
and Northern Railroad.
His life is the story of the country boy in
a large family in a small community offering
little opportunity, who, despite the handicaps
of environments, early learned that life gives
back in an unvarying equation, only what is
put into it. Faithful, energetic service, in
tegrity, a capacity to learn and a consuming
curiosity to know what put the man ahead in
his position, have carried him from telegraph
operator to assistant vice president of one of
the largest railroad systems of the country.
What an answer this is to the boys who think
that they should start at the top!
It was in 1889 that Mr. Brand was taken on
as a telegraph operator by the C. M. & N. at
Sumter, S. C., his home town. This was when
his continuous service began, but he had made
an earlier start, as messenger at 11, and later
served the Western Union, w'here he learned
telegraphy, and, as a sideline, was tutored for
four years at nights with the ambition to en
ter the Citadel military school, then, as now,
an outstanding educational institution. He
did not realize his ambition to wear a uni
form, chiefly because day work and night
study were too much for a lad of his years,
and the necessity of earning a living had to
be given right of way. From 1889 to 1894 he
advanced from telegrapher successively to the
posts of chief clerk to the general manager,
train dispatcher and trainmaster. In the lat
ter year he was made chief clerk to the super
intendent of transportation of the A. C. L. at
Wilmington.
In 1902-03 he was assistant superintendent
of transportation at Wilmington; 1903-07, su
perintendent at Savannah; 1907-14, general su
perintendent of the second division at Savan
nah; 1915, general superintendent, third divis
ion, Jacksonville; on November 16, 1915, ap
pointed assistant general manager of the A.
C. L. at Wilmington. His rise to high execu
tive duties came on April 17, 192S, when he
was elected general manager, with headquar
ters at Wilmington, and on October 23, 1936,
assistant vice president. It is from this office
he retires today.
During this busy career he has found time
to serve as general manager of the Charleston
& Western railway; general manager, Belt
Line railroad, Montgomery, Ala.; director, Au
gusta Union Station company, Augusta, Ga.; di
rector, Augusta & Summerville railroad, and di
rector and vice president. Savannah River Ter
minal company of Augusta—all subsidiaries of
the A. C. L. system.
Mr. Brand plans now to travel a bit, take
life easy, as he well deserves to do, and enjoy
• ,, t
his sunset years in the kind of playing he
previously lacked time for. W'ilmington is glad
to learn that he will continue to make his home
here.
Happy days, Mr. Brand.
WHERE HELP IS NEEDED
Henry Ford’s refusal to buiid airplane en
gines for Great Britain has served to redirect
American attention to the question of aiding
England at all in her hour of gravest peril.
There is a strong feeling in many quarters
that America has all it can do to perfect its
own defenses and that to provide war material
of whatever nature to England would be to
handicap our defense effort. There is, of course,
some support for this view, but those who hold
to it fail to grasp the significance of the fight
of England against the Axis powers.
The battle is not England’s alone. It is ours
as well. For if England fails and the dicta
tors win out, the burden which was too heavy
for England will descend upon us. It is im
possible to believe that the conquerors of Eu
rope, unless they get to fighting among them
selves, will not plot a campaign against the
American continents, as the only remaining
outpost ot democracy.
A British surrender will inevitably bring
America into war with the totalitarian powers
ot Europe. American aid, therefore, to the Brit
ish in their stand against Hitleb and Mussolini
becomes a matter of self interest. A war won
in Europe by Great Britain is our surest means
of escaping war in America.
And surrender of Great Britain, with her own
fleet and what she is able to salvage of the
French navy, would leave us in a deplorable
defense situation. Unlss we could complete
naval strength equal to that of Germany, Italy
and Japan, our shores would be exceedingly
vulnerable. In battleships, cruisers, aircraft
carriers, destroyers and submarines, the Axis
Powers and Japan count 637 bottoms. Against
this formidable array we now count 279. if
we were required to face these combined sea
forces today we could muster only about a third
of their strength. If Hitleb should be victorious
over Great Britain and take over the French
and British fleets, totalitarian navies would be
recruited by 476 warships. What could we hope
to do against such a fleet, even with the biggest
navy we might build?
Whatever the United States can do to make
Britain's victory possible is obviously a major
duty.
A GREATER FOE COMING
As possibilities of a clash among the dictators
of Europe become more and more apparent
through Russia’s steal of Bessarabia and the
Hungarian and Bulgarian demands upon Ruma
nia, a new foe Is soon to rear its grim head on
the continent.
Famine is not far ahead. And in its wake
is pestilence. Not even the might of Hitleb is
great enough to win a victory over this dread
enemy and its destructive ally. What his tri
umphant armies have done to ruin Europe are
child’s play in comparison with the desolation
that hunger and disease are to bring, if the
war continues much longer and Great Britain
falls.
The farmers of much continental Europe
have been soldiering or manufacturing muni
tions instead of Planting and making crops.
Food supplies in the conquered countries are al
ready running low. Industrialized lands, such
as Holland and Belgium, are not capable of pro
viding the necessities of physical life for their
peoples even in the best of times. Now they
are dependent wholly upon what food they can
obtain from the conqurors, who care little if
they starve and less if they die. "France has
used up its manpower on the battlefields of its
prostrate north and the population still alive is
not capable of producing crops out of season.
Denmark’s storehouses are commandered by the
Germans. England is not able to subsist on the
yield of its own soil. Germany, so long engaged
in war preparation and prosecution, is feeling
+ /-if ♦ Vi/-i A llin/1 hlnplroHa urliinli \To7i vif.
tories on the mainland have not succeeded in
breaking. Millions upon millions of people are
on short rations, which will be more and more
curtailed as time goes on.
When food is scarce and bodies lack normal
sustenance, disease finds easy entry at any do- •.
When the land is filled with unburied dead,
when streams are polluted with decaying flesh,
and medical supplies are as lacking as food
supplies, epidemics spread like wildfire. This
is what Europe faces. This is what Hitler has
brought upon his own people and the peoples of
many other lands. This is what proves that
even he, with all his vaunted might, cannot
win.
The Red Cross is doing a noble work in re
lieving suffering and staving off famine and
disease in conquered territory. It cannot hope
to save all of Europe's needy refugees. But it
is going forward with its labor of mercy as
best it can with the funds Americans are mak
ing available. Its effort will be more effective
if we sacrifice a little of our comfort and in
crease our contributions.
Wilmington has not yet topped the .^oal set
by Red Cross headquarters as our fair quota.
Surely we can make up the deficiency if we try.

In Washington'
WASHINTON, June 29. — Nobody was ever
sorer over that New Jersey shipyard strike which
tied up warship construction than was the C. I. O.
command here in Washington.
Real story, it now develops, is this: The union
met to consider the negotiating committee's pro
posals on Memorial Day night. Quite a few of
the boys were full of holiday cheer. One mem
ber made a "blast the bosses" speech, everybody
whooped and hollered, and a strike vote got
passed.
In the cold gray dawn nobody knew just how
it happened.
The appalled Washington C. I. O. crowd sent
word the whole outfit would be disowned unless
the thing was called off — and settlement was
easy.

MANY ALIENS IN AMERICAN CREWS
One of the fifth column possibilities which has
worried a number of people here has to do with
the presence of a large number of aliens in the
crews of American merchant ships.
Some fairly fantastic stories are in circulation.
One is that the Communists have worked out a
courier system for the transmission of orders,
reports and what not all over the new world by
means of carefully planted seamen on American
ships. Another holds that guns and agitators
have been smuggled into Latin-American coun
tries by the same means in recent mouths. Still
mother hints at plans for sabotaging the defense
program by fomenting strikes on certain essential
trade routes.
Ihe government aims to head off any possible
trouble, and FDR has asked Congress to give the
Bureau of Marine Inspection and Navigation
$236,000 for the job.

LEAHY WANTS DEFENSE POST
It’s an open secret that retired Admiral Wil
liam D. Leahy, governor of Puerto Rico, would '
be happy to give up his job for some spot in
the national defense program.
Leahy set out to do a real job on the island
and got disillusioned. FDR promised him 100 per
cent support. With that, and his own past suc
cess in getting things through Congress when
he was running the fleet, Leahy had high hopes.
He asked for a big boost in the island’s sugar
ttuota and a change in the wage-hour law. Ad
ministration support vanished, and Leahy found
that getting congressmen to give things to the
navy was one thing and getting them to buck
the lobbies for the sake of a far-away, voteless
territory was another.
All he got .finally, was some extra WPA money
—and a lot of headaches.

NATIONS TO WATCH
The navy's dispatch of a second "good will”
cruiser to South America is simply visible evi
dence of the profound concern felt in high gov
ernment circles over the prospects for Nazi out
breaks of one kind or another.
One man who is close to the picture offers this
tip: Don't be surprised at anything that may
happen in any of the following countries—Mexico,
Costa Rica, Panama, Ecuador, Brazil and Peru.

Book Highlights
You can put down “Lillian
Russell—The Era of Plush” by
Parker Morell (Random
House: $3) as top-notch biog
raphy. It is as readable as
the original American glamor
girl was fabulous. Lillian Rus
sell’s vogue lasted 40 years,
she was the most photographed
woman in the world. She be
came a celebrity and a legend,
more lavish in her living than
a queen. Together with Dia
mond Jim Brady, Gilbert and
Sullivan, Lilly Langtry. Weber
and Fields and scores of other
characters of the age of gas
lights and buggy riding, Miss
Russell sweeps tl.'cugh this
book, or rides as described in
the following brief excerpt.
Scornful of the ordinary com
mercial products, the ostentatious
Brady ordered gold-plated bicycles
and kept an electroplater’s shop
busy regilding each of them every
two weeks. One bicycle maker with
a flare for advertising made a sim
ilar machine for Lillian and pre
OV.1HCU Jl- UV1 YV1H1
ments. On its handlebar was her
monogram in diamonds and emer
alds. Her pride in this vehicle was
made svident when she ordered .a
huge plush-lined case, with “Lil
lian Russell” painted in bold white
letters on the sides. On tour it was
always an object of wonder which
never earned her less than a half
column story in the newspapers.
On Sundays, when she was in
New York, Lilian often went for
a spin in the park with Diamond
Jim. Sometimes she would take
her gold machine out of its plush
case, and sometimes she would
take the middle seat of Brady’s
big triplet.
Not to be outdone by the tan
dem, the bicycle celebrated in the
most popular song of the day by
the phrase, “A Bicycle Built for
Two.” Brady ordered a three-seat
er. To see Lillian in the middle
seat and Jim, glittering with dia
monds that might have served as
headlights, steering, while some
envied friends brought up the rear,
was a sight that stopped all traf
fic. i
Medical Care
BY LOGAN CLENDENING, M. D.
A patient writes “I have been
told that my sciatica is due to a
protruded intervertebral disk. Will
you please explain what this
means?”
The backbone is composed of a
series of (superimposed separate
bones. Between each one is a car
tilaginous disk called the “inter
vertebral disk.” Recent studies
have indicated that in certain cases
low back pain and sciatica may be
due to dislocation of this cartilagin
ous disk. The condition is known
as “protruded intervertebral disk.”
A considerable difference of opin
ion has been expressed as to how
often it occurs. Probably a very
low percentage—not more than 2
per cent of all cases of low back
pain. Such cases of sciatica or
low back pain as are caused by
this condition are always preceded
by injury or accident. Reports say
that surgical removal of the disk
is followed by relief.
It certainly indicates that who
sver made this diagnosis is
an alert and up-to-date physician,
but it is to be hoped that gossip on
this subject will not spread too
rapidly among nervous patients
Most cases of low back pain are
relieved by manipulations and by
-est. warmth, light treatment and
liathermy.

What is the best solution to use
•or the prevention of athlete’s foot
n shower baths, by the sides of
oools, and other such purposes?
A one per cent solution of so
lium hypochlorite. Another solu
:ion used is calcium hypchlorite
n a two per cent solution. This is
lypochlorite but there have been
10 careful studies on the capacity
if calcium hypochlorite to kill ring
vorm. It is also more irritating to
issues.
Sodium hypochlorite is conveni
ently purchased in metal chemical
:arboys in 20 per cent strength,
rhis is diluted twenty to one for
ilacing in footbaths and the solu
ion should be changed every sec
md or third day. The approximate
lost per change should be about
10 or 15 cents, depending on the
size of the footbath.

A diabetic or a person who is

Aviation Plants, Irked At U. 5.
Delay, Await Full-Speed Order
(By The Associated Press)
The aviation industry, tooling to
turn out an ever increasing number
of airplanes for defense and com
merce, still is waiting for "full
speed ahead” orders from Wash
ington. industry leaders declared to
day.
Spokesmen for the industry en
visioned further delay in drawing up
contracts. They declared care must
be taken to avoid "milking” avia
tion companies financially and leav
ing them “dry” at the end of a few
hectic years of defense effort.
While America's capacity for turn
ing out airplanes has doubled in the
last year, army engineers say that
there should be no talk of "mass
production" in aviation.
"We are hoping for machine pro
luction to replace hand production in
iviation,” one officer said, "but cer
tainly not for mass production.”
“Would you expect mass produc
tion of automobiles if the industry
planned to turn out less than 50,000
cars—and those of ten of twelve dif
ferent models?”
President Roosevelt has set 50,000
planes as the ultimate goal of the
American air defense effort.
The spokesman of the aviation in
dustry laid the blame for delay, not
on the army and navy, but on the
congress, which they declared had
taken almost six weeks to put into
1 a w Prseident Roosevelt’s latest
emergency defense proposals.
Nub of the contract problem, they
declared, is the seven per cent limi
tation on profits imposed by con
gress in a bill intended to speed up
defense works.
While congressmen defended the
limitation as a necessary guarantee
against “war millionaires,” industry
spokesmen declared it made neces
sary careful study of "amortization”
schedules in all contracts.
"Amortization,” means the grad
ual writing-off, in the price of
planes, of the capital investment
necessary to expand plants to meet
the needs of national defense. i
South America, Trade Slashed
By War, Looks Now To U. S.
BUENOS AIRES—(Correspondence
it The Associated Press)—Business
ind governmental leaders through
out the 20 Latin American repub
ics, all threatened with economic
ind political domination because of
;he triumphant march of the Ger
nan army, are looking today to
Washington for guidance and
itrength.
All these leaders, finding them
elves on the brink of the unknown,
mint out with varying degrees of
emphasis that the fall of France
ind the new challenge to British
tastery of the seas have enormous
ignificance in Latin America.
The British navy has policed the
world’s sea ways and implemented
he Monroe Doctrine.
Behind that police power and that
octrlne, these sources declare, the
Vestern Hemisphere has achieved
^dependence and wealth.
The wealth is immediately threat
ned, based as it is upon the ex
ortation of staples and minerals
rhich go mainly to Europe and
pon certain fundamental business
^sumptions that are being destroy
ed on the European continent by
revolutionary Nazi doctrines.
In Buenos Aires, Rio Janeiro, San
tiago, La Paz, Asuncion and Monte
video the export figures for- the
firs: five months of this year com
pared with the same period for 1939
show that southern South America’s
trade has been “doing a tailspin’*
during the European war.
For some of these cities. Europe’s
belligerents have for generations
been the principal markets.
Argentina grew rich selling
grains, meat, wool, hides and other
products to the United Kingdom.
Seventy-five per cent of Uruguay's
exports went to Great Britain and
France.
Germany has been Brazil’s latter
day main market in a lively rivalry
with the United States and Great
Britain.
Bolivia’s "staff of life” is export
tin, which goes almost wholly to
Great Britain and is operated by in
ternational cartel.

Your
Opinion
BY GLADYS BEST TKIPP
Question for today: Do you think
the United States should have com
pulsory military training. Why?
What's your opinion? Here's
what some of Wilmington's popu
lace believe—
“Contrary to constitutional
rights” commented Hugh Hum
phrey, photographer and engraver
as he denounced the idea of com
pulsory military training in the
United States.
“The Bill of Rights precisely
states that each person is entitled
to life, liberty and the pursuit of
happiness. And compulsory mili
tary training would destroy that
liberty”
Humphrey pointed out that
enough men of the accepted age
would gladly respond to America';
call for arms if army and navy
wages were raised sufficient}' to
justify leaving salaries at home,
Of the same opinion was Harry
Griffin, manager of Tom McAms
shoe store. “What about the wives
and children?” he asked. "A man
with four or five kids can’t expect
to support them in their accustom
ed manner by the wages he would
receive in camp. And then the
jobs — what's happening to them
while we’re gone?”
Griffin feels that compulsory
military training will upset the
whole American scheme ot living,
and in this capitalistic system the
business men who were beyond tr.t
age for attending camp would
gradually crowd out the enliste
men by making use of the camp
ing time.
And now for the other side-'
