day last week newspaper
headlines told the story of a British
steamer being bombed by Nazi airplanes, with 109 of the steamer's
passengers killed or missing. Reading the story, certain persons who
have always argued the superiority
of aircraft over seacraft, claimed
that here was proof of their point
and submitted letters to their local
newspapers begging the government
to abolish its huge naval spending
and invest the public
money in aircraft, which is both better and cheaper, they claim.
Here was the old controversy

has this incredulity been apparent
in our treatment of savage atrocities committed
bv the Japanese. Even more important and at
the same time subject to remedy has been our
ignorance as to the part we play in the slaughter
of China and in darkening our own future. It
is the ignorance which. Doctor Judd says, sends
him home as a missionary to his own peof)le.
In the last six months of the Chino-Japaneswar. 70 to 80 percent of all Japanese imports

greatest of these import items is raw cotton, a
staple which Japan hopes to develop in China

China so Japan can heenme somewhat selfsuf-ftent and eliminate her imports from us. We

I he missionary liclieves that Japan is so
upon this country, especially since the
outbreak of the European war, that only a firm
threat of cessation of trade is needed to bring
the apanese military clique to a halt. Certainly,
he adds, we need fear no war because if Japan
with our aid cannot defeat China, she would find
it even more difficult to defeat China and the
I'nited States without our raw materials.
The recent abrogation of our trade treaty

action. If the people so will it. Congress and the
