TRADE BOOMING War Gives U. S. Chance With Neighbors to South, Asseverates Holland. Four years a*o the International trad* between the United State* and Sooth America waa so small an to be almost negligible, in spite of the fact that tome of the foremost minds in American iffe had already called at tention to the opportunity for devel oping a trade with South America which In time might become as large as our trade with Great Britain. At least ten years ago James Still man. having returned to the United States after a brief sojourn in Eng land and France, spoke with enthusi asm of the opportunity which await ed. perhaps the younger men of the United States, to foster trade with South America. To do that success fully. Mr. Stillman said would re quire at least a training of five years of American representatives who were sent to South America. They must learn the language. They must have good understanding of the busi ness customs, characteristic of the South American people. They must cultivate urbanity and that kind of social charm with which the people of South America, at least the lead ers. are familiar. They must refrain from bustling hustling methods and learn the fine art of business diplo macy. These things having been done Mr. Stillman predicted that there would follow an amaslng Increase in our purchase of. South American com modities. especially raw material Uttle heed was paid to Mr. Still man's suggestion although some of the leaders in larger industries, espe cially electrical apparatus and equip ment. did enter the South American markets and one of them gained con siderable success. Theodore N. Vail, vent to South America In order to establish electrical and trolley sys tem* snd he was so successful that he was able after a few years sojourn there to return to the United States and retire to his farm in Vermont. War Chaases Policy. These, however, were only incident al approaches to the great South American markets. Then came the unexpected and amaxing changes which was occasioned by the out break of the European ??rar. There began practically an embargo upon 1 ? ommerce between the South Amer- , ican nations and Europe. No other eountry than the United States %of-i fered opportunities to the people of j South America who needed various ; commodities which they formerly ? bought in England or upon the con- i tinent of Europe. Gradually there , appeared in American Industrial and financial centers representatives of! the South American nations who were ! s?nt here to see whether or not they could make satisfactory bargains. On the other hand the United States began to buy heavily of South Amer- ; ican raw material, especially the commodities of that kind which for- j merly they obtained elsewhere. So thai at last when the armistice was signed it was discovered that within four years our international trade tvith South America combined with our trsde with Cansda represented an aggregate larger than our trade w!th I any other country, excepting of course that with our allies who were com pelled, by the exigencies of the war ?o buy munitions and food here. These purchases, however, were of a kind which would be maintained only while the war lasted. ^ If James G.

TeL Main 1940-1-2 / Commercial conferanoe. which nl held in Wuhln?ton last WHk. For Mr. Blmina *11 imtlr Interacted In the development of oar trade with South America. Everything which wa? uld done at the conference, nirniehed abundant evidence that the present day disposition of the Boath Ameri can people Is In favor of maintaining and steadily Increasing trade with the United States. Municipalities and nations in South America are .mitlni the market which today Is the world's great source of credit funds, for the United 8tatea is that market place. IMk t? C. S. t?r ?V?4m. tt was the fact that needed financ ing prior to the European war was secured by South America in Loo don. Paris and Berlin, which enabled those nations across the sea to com mand the greater part of the South American trade. Now It Is evtdenoed tuat the United States Is ready to supplant with our own credit and funds to London and Paris as the source of financial aid to South America. . Trade Is sure tb follow the securing of funds Furthermore trsde is the mora easily stimulated especially In South America If there be extension of credit for a period far in excess of thirty or sixty days. It is believed that extensions of this kind will be secured by the South American mer chants. There Is also a mutual feel ing of friendship and esteem. Mr. Schwab said to the delegates at the conference that he had never had any but the pleasantest. the roost straight forward and the happiest outcome In all the business he had ever done in South America. One of the commodities of the Unit ed States for which South America will make large demands Is coal. When the nations of that oontlnent were dependant upon England. France and Germany they secured almost all the coal they needed from Wales. The cost of this coal tended to pe vent the development of South Amer ican coal and It can be ptaoed In the South American markets at consider ably less cost than the Welch coal formerly commanded.

TO STEAL ONE BASE Life~Long Ambition of Pitcher Hub Perdue. New York. July 6.?Hub Per due, for several years a National League pitcher with the Boston ana St. Louis clubs, and now pitching In the Southern league, is a disap pointed man. Hub. his eyes tear dimmed and his voice husky, re cently confided to sorrowing friends the story of a life's tragedy, of an ambition of fifteen years' standing, never yet and apparently never to b* fulfilled. "I've been playing baseball for fifteen years and I've never stolen a base." moaned the portly box man of the Pelicans. "Surely, Hub." urged a bystander. In all these years you have at tlm*>a been on first and a runner on third and two out, or have gotten to first with the enemy ahead by a flock of runs, and willing to let you steal 'round to third Just for the fun of It?" "Never, never," answered the old j timer. "I'm determined to steal a base, though, if I have to stay In baseball ten ytars more or break a l*g while trying. The only way I could ever find for me to steal a base was to get a lantern and go out at night, and the scorera won't count that kind." What Doth It Profit a Man? Worldly Gain?Eternal Loss By Dr. JAMES R. TALMAGB. Of the Council of the Twelve. Church of Je*us Christ of Latter-day Saints; I Salt Lake City. Utah. , Note: For fi*e copies of other article* of (kit series, send request ts the author. Tor what shall It profit a man, If he ahall gala the whole world, and loae hla own aoalf Or what ahall a man ftrf In exchange for hla aonlf** (Mark 8:36-37). These are questions put by the Teacher of teachers. They are re lated; we may consider them as one. Simple, like unto all the Mas ter's teachings?for high precept and profound philosophy are em bodied in the interrogatory?the quesjpon is searching, peremptory. ?j)0lfenging. Who that hears or , r* ads can brush it aside? Com I pelling in its incisive brevity. It is of haunting directness. Once con ; sidered. even cursorily, it will not down; once admitted to the inner 1 consciousness, it will not out. The baubles of earth are set over against the priceless jewels of heaven; the fleeting thincs of mor tality are put in contrast with the enduring verities of eternity. Granted that this is a material world, and that experience in ma terial afTairs is a pervading and ^indispensable element in the cur riculum of life's school, it is no less truly a fact that earth-life is neither the beginning nor the end of individual existence and pro gression. Material belongings. relative wealth or poverty, physical envir onment?the things on which we are prone to set our hearts and anchor our aspirations, the things j for which we sweat and strive, of j times at the sacrifice of happiness and to the forfeiture of real suc ! cess?these after all are but ex ternals. the worth of which in the I reckoning to come shall be count led in terms of the use we' have made of them. Is the plow more than the field to be furrowed, or the sickle than the ripened grain? Can gold stay the hunger pangs better than the nourishing food that the money may buy? The context with which oocurs the crucial interrogation quoted above points the question sharply: "Who soever will eome after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will ; ??ve his life shall lose Itf hat who I soever shall lose hU Ufe for my | sake aad the gospel's the same shall nave It" The cross to be taken up may be heavy, perhaps to be dragged be : cause too burdensome to be borne. We are apt to assume that self denial is the sole material of our cross; but this is true only as we regard self-denial in its broadest sense, comprising both positive and negative aspects. One man's cross may consist mostly in refraining from doings to which he is In clined. another's In doing what he would fain escape. One's besetting sin Is evil indulgence; his neigh bor's lazy inattention to the ac tivities required by the Gospel of Jesus Christ, coupled perchance with puritanical rigor in other ob servances. But the great question, striking home to every thoughtful soul, is : that of the Master?"For what la man profited. If he -hall gala the w hole world and loae hU own sonlf (Matt. 16:26). It ia possible then for a man to i lose hia own aoul. To deny is to re ject the Lord's own doctrine. The safeguard against such incalculable loss is specifically indicated?to fol low the Saviors and thin can mean only keeping Hia commandments, whatever the temporary suffering or worldly sacrifice may be. The occasion of Christ's question ? with its accompanying brief but forceful discourse was this: He had reiterated to the disciples, with greater directness than ever before, the facts of His approaching death and the ignominy that would be forced upon Him. Peter, impetuous and impulsive as ever, exclaimed "Be It far from thee. Lords thla ?hall not he unto thee." In that remark, though well-intended and bold, lay the suggestion that Jesus should avert the impending tragedy ?to Himself, and save His own life. The Lord's reply to Peter was a re buke of the severest kind. Then followed the avowal that ' one who saves bis life at the coat of righteoua duty shall loae it, and the comforting assurance that he who is ready to sacrifice bis life in the Master's service shall find it. If' this be true with life as the stake, how more so shall it be with wealth, station, worldly power, or pet but false theory and doctrine, as the thing to be gained or lost?

DANCE ARTISTS DOOM'SHIMMY1 Say Latest Innovations Are Vulgar and Rough and Mutilate "Art." Atlantic City, N. J.?Farewell, the "shimmy." the Barbtfy cout whirl" and other so-called ?Touch" or "vulgar dances/' "Dancing is an ultra-reflned art. It is being mutilated. a Strictest censorship of dancing must be given over the country." Mo decrees the International As sociation of Dancing Masters. They want it stopped. There will be no more shivers and wiggles and un seemly postures on the dance floors if they can help It. The international association de termined at the convention to link hands with ministerial associations and civic welfare organisations to purge public dancing of vulgarity. By resclut ion members in virtually every big city in this country will be directed to assist In campaigns to tbls end. The association asserted that the wave of "indecent" dancing sweep ing over the country today, exem plified by such dances as "the shimmy" is directly due to the de pravity of song writers. To curb the growing evil, the dancing masters urge a concerted drive at the root of the trouble, suggestive songs and titles, ac cording to their opinion. The asso ciation asks uniform police super vision by State law on all gather ings where public dancing is per mitted. $ Improper Dsseea Following the decree of banishment of so termed "Improper" dances, the dancers went a step further and for bade the orchestra that furnished them with melody for the practice of new Fteps from playing any airs that might prove a temptation to indulge RESORTS.
