In his memorial address Chaplain (
James B. Wasson launched an attack
on pacifism and made a plea for uni?
versal service.
"We sorrow that our departed corn
have left us," he said, "but in
our sorrow we pledge that we f-hall
worthily acquit ourselves in facing the

before us is to act, to realize, as our
?tot tells us, that the whole na?
tion must wage this war. That means
the whole nation must conserve and
mobilize all its resources and products,
most of all, industrial and agricultural.
"The administration of pacifist pills
for pale people, warranted to make
them still more pale, is their only rem?

Herbert ?'. Hoover, .hairman of lh
'American Commission f??r l?rlief i
Belgium and recently appointed heai
of the American Food Board.
"The plan proposed l?y Mr. Hoover ti
i the War Cabinet," said Baron D
i port, "has my strongest backing, and
;I understand, also the backing of iep
I resentatives of our allies. It 4vas thn
'a small inter-Allied committee shou!?
be appointed, represent inr; five 01
I those principally interested in theovei
seas movement of food supplies; thn'
: is, this committee should further ?!<?
I velop the existing inter-Allied ?
in Europe for the combined pu?
and combined handling of all foodstuffs
for the Allies, whether from America
-cwhere. In other words, all
?wheat and any other commoditic?
! bought in the United States 01 ?
where are to be bought through the
head of a bureau subject 'o this gen
? ml committee, hihI thus the illative
I bidding by different allies and the con
j sequent artificial forcing up of Ameri?
can prices would be avoided.
"This competitive buying among the
Allies and the different departments in
'he Allied governments has been to a
considerable degree r? sponsible for the
high prices which American consumers
to-day have to pay for their foodstuffs,
Hopes to Hotter Conditions
"Another important function of th,
board would be to determine the allo?
cation of food supplies among the dif?
ferent Allies and formulate their re?
quirements for a considerable period
ahead. It is not proposed that thi
board shall have any functions insiu
the territory of any of the Allies, but
to he a bridge representing fool
control of each Allied country Cor C'
operative purposes, As Amerii
4vholly an exporter of food? our hopes
of the American people arc thai
may place at the disposition ?>f the
inter-Allied board as large quantities
of our necessary staples ns pi>
and it is our hope by codperatioi I
we shall be able to stem the rising tide
in the cost of living in America as well
as Europe, and thus am?lior?t?- the
condition of the civil population in all
the Allied countries."
Baron Devonport said the requir'-'

America should be limited to the
est possible minimum on which public 1

Therefore, Mom non on until 'he bar

Paying for
War Out of
The Pocket
( onllnnr?! from puce 1
months ago with the astounding suc?
cess of the great war loan, to which
the people subscribed ?16,000,000,000
of new money, without counting the
conversion of outstanding stocks.
Our people actually showed them
selves willing and able to subscribe
more for 5 per cent interest in 1!*17
than for 6 per cent interest in lit It!.
The new government, against the
advice of some of its leading finan?
cial advisers, including the Hank of
England, lowered the rate of inter?
est it offered and achieved a BU
which surprised itself. Xow the
prophets dare not croak. The coun?
try has learned that it does not
know the limits of its own money
raising powers.
In spite of $5,000,000,000 sub?
scribed in February, people arc al
| ready beginning to subscribe more
now. It is our ?special pride that
i we have not, like Germany, relied
I alone upon borrowing money. While
' Germany is borrowing even to pay
' the interest on her live war loans, we
have taxed ourselves to such an ex?
tent that we raise by revenue about
one-third as much as we raise by
borrowing, and the amount is e\cr
, increasing.
In the financial year to Match 31,
1916, wo obtained $1,686,000,000 by
revenue and $6,820,000,000 by loans
and in the year to March 31, 1017,
| we obtain? 000,000 by reve?
nue and ?$8,126,000,000 by loans,
These figures are what financiers
call "net"; they are the amounts
which have been borrowed, after de?
ducting the amounts of the short
loans we have repaid, for we go on
i< paying all the time. This system
of trying to pay as much as possible
go by bearing the burden of
a 'J?'? per cent income tax, for in
j stance?we believe to be good.
! England's Plan
? Worth Adopting
Your President in his great speech
emphasized the soundness of thi
tern. It is a plan worth adopting
If it is true that victory will be to
the nation which last becomes bank?
rupt. It will certainly have a vital
bearing in the economic war to fol?
low this war.
The period from August 11 to bufl
week shows that while we have spent
HlfOSO-000-000, m have $100,.
000 more in the national Treasury
than when we began, with more, of
course, rapidly flowing in daily.
Thus, we have raised $21,620,000,
000, and of thi<. $6,476,000.000 has
been raised by revenue and $16,1 |6,
000,000 has been raised by loan.
_.. I
This financing has not been all for ,
ourselves. More than a quarter of'
the amount borrowed, S4,*?0,000,000, '
has lieen relent to our allies and our
dominion.-*. We are lending to our j
allies at the rate of about $7,."?00,000
a day.
In spite of our income tax, our '
Buper-ineonie tax. our ?'xcess profits j
duty of 60 per cent, our heavy tax<2_ ;
on all luxuries, such as alcoholic |
drink, tobacco and so on, we are all :
looking forward to a further in?
crease of taxation next week, when
?Sonar Law, the new Chancelle. ?>f
the Exchequer, introduces his first
budget. He has lowered the rate of
interest the nation has to pay on its
loans, and the nation will all the
more loyally support him in his new
proposals.
The one thing a nation want? is
i?? be dra-tic. Even the man at
lunch, wiio used to pay I cents for a
glass ?if beer, and now has to pay
12?unie--- he prefers to practise
War economy by going- without?
feels that the more drastic the meas?
ure is the better it is for all of us.
All Finaare Except
of War at Standstill
The man whose individual husi
i- finance has made many sac?
rinces. All finance except the
finance of war has been brought to
a standstill. N i financial project
may be carried out unless the TrcAs
ury gives ? No new com?
pany may be formed, and no exist?
ing one may issue now capital.
The idea, of ?nurse, is to keep
wealth within the country and to con?
cent rate it on the war. There can be
peculation on t*he St?H*k Kx
change in the sen^p which prevailed
before the war. when the "bulls"
cmild buy what they did not intend
i>? pay for and the "bears" could sell
what they had not got. When the
St?x*k Kxchange was reopened, after
being do. cd ?luring the earlier part
of the war, a nil?' was made that al!
transactions must be made with the
securities ?iowti, and this salutary
rule still prevails.
People are now already lending
again, after the effort of the gn-a'
war loan, on Treasury bill? and ex?
chequer IkiikIs, Treasury bills <*or

Japanese Trade
Increased by War
Munitions and Household
Manufactures Are Shipped
to the Allies
Mr Kurakawa, of the Japanese De?
partment of Agriculture and Commerce,
has recently returned to Tokio from an
extensive tour of inspection in Furope.
His report shows an extraordinary in- !
crease in trade between (ireat Britain
and Japan since the beginning of the ;
war. By what routes this commerce
has been carried on il discreetly cen?
sored.
The chief shipments have been silk
tissues, silk handkerchiefs, stockings,
cotton hosierv, porcelains of every de?
scription, copper wire, bamboo goods,
sh?"ll buttons, brushes and countless
miscellaneous articles.
Speaking of conditions in France. Mr.
Kurakawa found that the industrial
forces of that republic had been cur?
tailed 40 per cent since war began, as
of the skill?'?! employes had been
??ailed i?, the colora. Necessities for
the household are obtained with diffi?
culty in some parts of France, but
.Japan? arc going far toward
supplying the deficit. Development of
munition industrie; has been marvel?
ous; their manufacture has reached an
efficiency such ns was never known in
any continental country, except pos
-ilily Germany.
Italy has been supplied through the
Sue/. Canal, but activity of submarine
raiders, Austrian and German, has in
ed the dangers of delivering Jap
aneas merchandise to Italy.
in .?ling with Scandinavian countries
has been fairly successful, Al
goods were shipped across Siberia and
i proper: now they are -ent by
sea. There have heen few ?lisa
Mr. Kurakawa eonelndes by aasarting
that Japan is rapidly acquiring a world
wide market for her manufactured
goods, having had the foresight not to
ship raw maten I
Not withstanding the war, the number
of vessels that entered Japan? ? ports
during last year was far greater than
in 1915. According to the official re?
turns. 9,662 ressels, with a total ton
age of '_'?>.?;*".:'.,"> 1S, entered the ports in ,

Her voice fell to a 4vhispcr and the
dark eyes tilled with sudden tears.
"You know." she said. "4vhen you

So they let her keep at it. and she
