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.

GOTTHELF & CO. "The Store of Good Values" 94-100 MAIN STREET I I , 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 war. . 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 1$17. ' -x 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. From the Commerce Reports.
