Interview , With Dr. Valeria H
Parker of Hartford.
To protect soldiers and sailors as
veil as civilians against the dangers
of immorality is one of the most im
portant tasks confronting the. "women
of this country," said Dr. Valeria' H.
Parker when asked about measures
being taken to prevent disease due to
Immorality in the Army and Navy.
Dr. Parker is chairman of the health
and recreation committee, .committee
on woman's activities, . Connecticut
State Council of Defense. She -said,
in an interview made: public , today by
the state defense council:
- "To stamp out from the Army and
Navy those temwe contagious dis
eases which have their rise in immor
ality but find many victims among the
innocent is a problem 'which, forthe
first time in the history of the world,
our nation is facing fairly and. square
ly. Success in dealing with the prob
lem depends mainly upon two things
first, recognition of the importance
of the moral issue; secpnd, an awak
ening of the sense of responsibility of
the community at, large. Medical
prophylaxis, must, be continued as
military routine until moral prophy
laxis the staple standard of morals
has gained a stronger foothold among
officers and men alike.'; We cannot
succeed in a solution of the problem
if .rigid zones are established about
military cantonments while commun
ities outside of the military , zones
continue to allow alcholism and hs
morality to flourish. 7 Every man in
the . Army and Navy should receive
through carefully selected 'literature
and. lectures -the facts of life in a
clean, straightforward " .way.. That
many of our -young -men have passed
from home', school and church without
having had proper ideals of the rela
tionships of life given, them has made
it possible , for-Improper acts to ruin
body and soul.
"Much encouragement is to be found
in the public stand taken by Secretary
of the Navy Daniels and Secretary of
War Baker. In their determination to
protect the men who are' to fight . for
us in establishing a world democracy,
Those citizens who remain in our
communities will fail in patriotic duty
unless they bend', every effort toward
cooperating m the elimination of those
evils which are more to be feared
than mutilation 01 death upon the
field of battle. We must support lib
erally the T. II. C. A, the T. W. C.
A., and the Knights of 'Columbus
those agencies which are to follow our
men to the encampments and even to
the battlefields, providing them with
wholesome interests and activities.
We must also strengthen our prepara
tion of the boys and girls. In our midst
by providing increased recreational
centers, under proper supervision and
the elimination, of unwholesome temp
tations. The matter of sex education
must be our settous, concern. In or
der to combat those diseases which
are as dangerous to civil as to mili
tary life, we should insist on the en
forcement of the law which requires
physicians to report anonymously all
patients found to be suffering' from
vereneral disease and should provide
tree day and evening clinics and hos
pital facilities for treatment. Only
by the complete cooperation of educa
tional, medical and spiritual forces
shall we eliminate the double stand
ard of morals which endangers : the
nation through destruction of the phy
sical and moral foundations of family
life." : - - ' y. V

Trade of the United States With the
Dutch East Indies.
The suggestion that a number ' of
the Dutch ships now lying idle in'the
harbor of New York may be assigned
to the carrying on'Of trade between
the Dutch Bast Indies and the Uni
ted States, is of special interest Sat
this time when the . trade of -this
country with those islands is by far
the largest in the history or our com
merce. A compilation by Tf!he Na
tional City Bank of New York shows
that the trade of the united estates
with the Dutch East Indies in the fis
cal year 1917 was more than that of
the five years preceding the war. Im
ports from the islands in the fiscal
year 1914, all of which preceded the
war, were but $5lJ34H)0 but jumped to
$9,246,0(10 in 1915; $27,717 000 in 1916,
and $62,011,000 in 1917. Exports from
the United States to the Dutch East
Ii:dies which were in 1914, S3,767,000
advanced to $7,401,000 in 1916 and
$21,191,000 in 1917. Thus our trade
with the Islands in 1917 was 'nine
times as great' as that of 1914, the
fiscal year immediately preceding the
This large Increase, while due : in
some degree to the disarrangement of
transportation facilities between
those islands' and the mother country,
Netherlands, to which most of their
exports .were usually sent for distri
bution toJ other parts of 'the world,
and from " which their imports were
chiefly drawn,: is also due in part to
increased demands by the United
States for their principal products.
Of India rubber, of. which our total
imports last year were nearly three
times as great as in tha year -before
the war. we took from the Dutch
East Indies 'n 1917,- 45.000,000 pounds
against 463,000 pounds in 1914, or
nearly ten times as much in 1917 as
in 1914. Of. hides and- skins, for
which we. are ransacking the world,
the imports from the Netherlands' In
dies were 8,000,000 pounds in 19lT,
against less than 500,000 pounds in
1S14. -Of. tin of which , our 1916 im
ports were the .largest In the history
of the trade, the total coming direct
from the Dutch East Indies was 14,
(00.000 pounds against but 56 000
pounds from those islands in 1914V
and 826,000 pourds from Netherlands.
Of cacao, we took from the islands i
1916, S31.000 pounds against 134,000
pounds In 1914; of cocoanut oil in
1916, 3,519,000 pounds against 407,000
pounds in 1915.. and none in 1914; of
pepper in 1916. 15.778,000 pounds and
in "1914 but 1.295,000; of kapoc, the
new vegetable fiber, about one million
dollars worth in 1916. against about
one-third of that sum in 1914. The
largest item in the 'increase of im
ports from the islands was rubber, of
which the value in 1917 was $37,240,
000 against $26,000 in W14, or prac
tically ten times as much ' in both
ocantity and value in 1917 as in
if 14. In a few articles, notably coffee
snd leaf tobacco, the quantity from
the islands in 1917 was slightly . less
than in 1914. . -
This increase In imports from the
islands was accompanied by a large
increase in our exports to them. . 'The
value-of merchandise exported to the
Dutch East Ind?es in 1917 was $21,
191 000 against $7,40i;00 in' 1916 and
$2,T72 0OO in IMS. This Increase in
exports to the islands occurred , in a
large number of articles; automobiles,
of which the exports to the islands in
19M, the latest year- for which details
ai e available, numbered 1,064 against
Ivnt 105 in 19-15, and the value in
1916, $890,000 against but $117,000 ;in
1915. In a very large number of
manufactures of iron and steel tlieie
Is a marked- increase, the total value
in iron and stee" manufactures to the
islands havinff been .in 1916, " $2,281, -
too against. $850 000 in 1914, and a
much larger total in 1917, though the
details for that year are not yet
available. Machinery,. galvanized
iron, nails, wire,! and iron pipes show
marked increases in both 1916 and

Timber Sales on National Forests
Doubled in Last Year.
Sales of national ' forest timber in
the fiscal year 19.17 were more than
double those of 1916, according to the
annual "report of the forester. The
total amount sold exceeded two billion
feet and is valued at more than $3,715,
000. During the same period about
"27 million feet were cut and removed,
for which the purchasers paid $1,507,
:" into the federal treasury. The
largest sales were made in Oregon,
Where about 688 million board feet
were disposed of.
In addition to the timber sold, ap
proximately 113 million board feet,
valued at almost' $160,000, Was cut un
der free use permit by more than
41,000 settlers living near the national
forests and depending on the forests
for firewood and building material to
improve their homesteads. ,
The timber business on the eastern
purchase areas, while still small as
compared with the western forests,
showed a decided increase, the report
states. More than three times as
much timber was sold and more than
twice as much cut as in 1916. The ma
terial disposed of, it is pointed out, "is
largely of poor quality and its re
moval will improve the forest growth.
