UNRESTRICTED WARFARE The people of the United States havfe been advised by a Navy announcement, \f,. : they did not know it before, that 1 at 1 the betfin/jfing of the war with Japan, our sUt5- marihes l were instructed to prosecute un restricted warfare against Japanese ship ping. Navy officials admit that the decision was a serious one to make but that the course of the struggle has demonstrated that it was correct. By this they mean that our submarines inflicted heavy losses upon the enemy, crippling shippinjg facilities and probably shortening the war and sav ing thousands of American lives. It should not be overlooked by Ameri cans, however, that the policy of unre stricted warfare was largely t&e eause of our war with Germany in 1917 arid that the official utterancffi -ibf . prior to that the German practidb ;!fi marine warfare. 1 jjin ''MS The acceptance of that iftpf'jjfL naV|di attack is evidence'that % m years brought about a realisation that it, was the most effective way to use sub marines and that novel methods of initially condemned as uficivlftkei 1,-/are subsequently accepted as propel?, routine. There is no doubt about the damage that our submarines inflicted upon Jap anese shipping. By far the larger portion of the enemy’s merchant shipping was destroyed by our undersea boats, not by aircraft as many people believe. The loss of ships forced the Japanese to abandon isolated garrisons, prevented supplies from reaching important battle areas and made it impossible for the enemy to shift troops for strategic reasons. THE SCIENTIFIC CHANCE ■•Recent reports indicate , a serious shortage of men trained in technical science. A great number of young meal ’ vftio'. coijtetnpjateiyui engineering rfl-efjv .gjt, red thh nr men serviced mm chance for such training/ Or their entered the armed services before they had a chance for such training. Or iheir careers in some such school were cut short by the call to the service. Many industries need more men with his sort of training than they are able to und. One estimate had it that there will lie a shortage of over 50,000 such people (fcur years from now. j A great future of industrial progress Hes ahead. New ideas, new products, new machines, new facilities will be worked dut. The men working on these problems will be like explorers in new country dis covering its resources, riches, and oppor tunities. One would think there would be many opportunities for individual success. Science beckons to the youths, and asks them to become workers in this great field erf progress. : >r The person who is a good friend to the home town, finds the home town a good friend of him. It is the simple story of give and take. Nearly every town and city in the United States boasts of natural advan tages, including the “best climate”. To not a boast but a fact. To convince your *iate that Key West has the best climate is *ei£ ask the weathermnn. . GLAMOR OF FLORIDA KEYS Apparent presence of oil in the well that is being drilled in Card Sound, Key Largo, has given at least two Key Westers visions of becoming millionaires. One of them told The Citizen that his acreage on Key Largo, before the discovery was made in the well, was valued by him at SIOO to S2OO an acre, but that now it is “price less.” He explained that he used that term merely to mean that he considers this is no time to sell acreage on Largo, or any other of the keys, and, he backed up that assertion by pointing out that the. trustees of the Internal Improvement Fund of Florida recently said that the potential value of land on the keys was such* they had decided not to sell any more acreage there at present. If oil is brought in at Key Largo, it will benefit many residents of Key West who own tracts on that key. One of them, during the 1925 boom, refused to sell his tract for three quarters of a million dol lars, and has been kicking himself ever since. But if oil is found on that key, it will turn out that he was wise in not sell ing in the boom days. However, regarding that sale, he has explained that the down payment was small, and that when the crash came, he would have haand to The same thing is true in.many mother cases of tracts that were sold,- on practically /every onepf.t#? keys.

But if oil is not found, it re mains a fact the day will come when the Florida Keys will form the greatest chain of winter resorts in the world. The glamor that characterizes the South Sea Islands is present on the keys, and is at the country’s doorstep.

MARKET LIMITED BY CASH “The modern age of electrical living in American homes” will provide an an nual business of $4,500,000,000 during the s[>y ~3^ ar f for thap wxLoO(> meaiartd yHemeuv: according-. to the E. W:' Clark, an official of esffrffn'ouse Corporation. ' * In his analysis, Mr. Clark figured that appliances, from lighting fixtures to frigerators, will find a $2,000,000,000-a --year market, that expanded electrification will take $1,000,000,000 or more, and that capital investments of utility com panies to provide power will equal this sum. It is interesting to note that he esti mates the country will need more than 7,- 000,000 new housing units in the next ten years and that the annual demand for electrical appliances is set at 3,000,000 refrigerators, 800,000 ranges, 2,500,000 washing machines, 2,000,000 vacuum cleaners and 5,000,000 radios. There is little reason to doubt the tremendous demand for eiectficaf appli ances. Nearly wants them. The real problei whether there is a de will have whkh to buy what they will like to nav& Electricity has been a tremendous boon to housewives, as well as to business. At the same time, it should be noted that the boon does not exist for families which do not have access to electric power lines. Nor does it exist for family groups whose incomes are so low that there is no money available for the purchase of appliances after the barest living standards have been , met.

Once more the very unpleasant notion assailed her that she was in a net, entangled there by a hundred invisible threads. “Miles!” she said, with a sortj of haste. “I want to telephone. Stop somewhere, will you?*’ “All right!” he said. “On the way back.” He turned up a lane, and stopped the car by the roadside. “Uncle Rufus comes out every few months,” he said, “to see if anyone’s improved enough for him to alter his will. At present, everything's to go to some society he belongs to. Of course, the idea is, that you’ll make a hit with him—” “I?” “He liked your mother,” said Miles. “Did you ever see my mother, Miles?” she asked. “When I was a kid. I don’t re member very well, but I think she was like you.” She turned toward him, eager ly. And was disconcerted to see him taking a flask out of his overcoat pocket.

Then he grew angry and bitter. “You’re like everyone one,” he said. “All right!” said Di. “Let’s not argue now.

It was pot until then that she remembered the tele phone-call she had wanted to make. “Well, tomorrow, then!” she thought, with a sigh. “I wonder if Wren has posted that letter? If he has. I might get an answer tomorrow.” SHE pushed open the front door and entered the dark, twilight filled room. A crack of light shone through the sliding-doors into the dining-room and she thought she heard someone moving in there. Di crossed to the doors but push as she might they would not open.
