Happenings That Affect the Din

National and International Pro
blems Inseparable from Local
The latest move of Emperor
Haile Selassie of Ethiopia (who j
numbers among his myriad titles
those of “King of Kings” andj
“Lion of Judah”) to save his lit
tle country from Italian domina- j
tion, marks one of the most dram
atic and unexpected episodes in
the long history of diplomatic iu
Selassie’s only remaining hope
for maintaining Etliiopion sover- j
eignty lies in enlistmg the aid of
major powers especially Great
Britain and the United States.
For some months the Emperor has
striven, through high sounding
appeals based on general princi
ples of Lberty and justice, to
bring Anglo-America actively to
his side. He has failed almost
100 per cent — V\ hitehall and
Washington are polite, ague and
definitely non-cooperative. Eng
land has sent and is sendmg large
groups of warships, planes and
soldiers to her bases at Malta and 1
the Suez Canal, and is calling on
the League of Nations to step in 1
—but. she has shown no inclina- .
tibn, to make the British lion roar
in behalf of other powers- Amer
icas policy, as indicated by the '
recently passed neutrality bill,
is one of complete isolation. ,
As a result, smooth, urban Sel- .
assie decided to turn England
and America into Ethiopian al -
lies whether they liked it or not.!
So he did the unprecedented.
Working through Francis M.
Ilickett, a mysterious British
promoter, he deeded more than
half of his empire to Anglo-Am
erican interests for exploitation
and development. The area deed-1
ed includes about 150,000 square
miles—more than the combined
areas of Indiana, Illinois and
Iowa—and parts of it are sup
posed to be incredibly rich in
petroleum and other mineral re
sources. The deed is to run for 75
years ,and gives the charteress I
unlimted authorty to exploit
mineral resources and otherwise
develop the country. Holders of,
the charter are said to consist of
British, interests and an American
corporation controlled by one of
the Standard Oil companies.
Wh'-ch Standard Oil company is
involved, if any, is not yet known
—Standard Oil of New Jersey, I
principal member of the group,
denied that it was any party to
Next day diplomatic response
to this astounding maneuver of
Selassie’s was one of'amazement,
wonder ,excitement. Foreign dip-;
lomats ,barring the Italians, at
first thought that Selassie had
‘ pulled a fast one on Rome that
would virtually balk Mussolini’s
designs, later events proved oth
erwise. Mussolini, visibly enraged,
made a speech saying Italy would
not and could not turn back, ord
ered sensational preparations for
war, threatened interfering na
tions with, a taste of Italy’s mailed
fist- And the British foreign of
fice thrust a politely worded ver
bal spear into Ethiopian hopes
when it “advised” Selassie to
withhold concessions, and said
that negotations between British,
French and Italian governments,
which have a treaty concerning
African rtghts, would be neces
cary before such a transaction
could be carried out. The Amer
can state department was cold
and non-committal—but Secre
tary Hull made it clear that this
government has no intention of
becoming involved in foreign
troubles because of adventuring
American capital. America editor
ial response to the deal was one of
anger and dismay’—many editors
said that the government should
completely disavow responsibility
for the commercial interests in
volved, ■honld state definitely
that it couldn’t be pulled into
war or lesser disputes because of
such financial machinations.
Irrespective of that, Selassie’s
move has immensely complicated
the whole Italian-Ethiopibn em
broglio. Also, it has apparently
eliminated whatever small chance
remained fbr peace—Mussolini is
going ahead, and war is certain as
soon as the rainy season ends
next month. Italian transport af
ter Italian transport is leaving
for Italian Somal land .bordering
Ethiopia, stuffed to the guards
with troops, supplies and muni
tions. The powder keg is ready,
the fuse is lit—and the world
watts for the result in fright and
“Now that the Ball is Over” is,
at the moment, an American na
tional air. The “ball’’ in this case
is the Congress. During its long,
talkative, comic-opera session
solons appropriated $10,000,000,
000. And they gave the President
almost everything he asked for,
demonstrating that while Roose
velt potency may be slipping, it
Congress passed an unprece
dented soak-the-rich tax on inher
itances, gifts and big incomes. It
passed a bill to concentrate con
trol of banking and credit under
the government- It passed the
largest single appropriation in,
the country’s history—$4,880,-'
000,000 for work and direct relief, j
It passed a stringent regulatory
bill concerning utiltiy holding j
companies. It passed a bill to en-1
force the right of collective bar
gaining by labor. It passed a bill
whereby all common carriers,
save the barge lines, will be regu
lated and coordinated in the man
ner of the railroads.
These are the high spots. The
session was historic—and just
what kind of history it made is a
matter of opinion. Some will say
that it cfeid its duty to the country
well—others that it was a dis
grace to democratic government.
Take your choice.
MEETING THE PUBLIC’S
Tiniie and again during recent
years the public has challenged
the railroads to improve service
in many ways—and every time
the rails have met the challenge,
as Dr. C. S. Duncan, Economist,
Association of American Rail
roads, recently pointed out.
The people want speed- Every
year witnesses faster travel be
tween major points—and develop
ments in the direction of diesel
and electric power, coupled with
stream-lining, promise much for
They want safety. According
of users all over

railroads have one fatality for
each 400,000,000 passenger-miles
—as compared with a fatality for
each 11,000,000 passenger-miles
on our highways.
They want comfort. Few homes
or hotels are as comfortable as
the modern, quiet-running, air
conditioned, perfectly balanced
They want dependability. They
have it now—interruptions in
railroad service, no matter what
the climate or the operating con
ditions, are very rare.
They want adequacy. The capac
ity of railroad carriers is not half
used today. They have abundant
tracks, equipment, terminal facil
ities and a network of lines em
bracing every part of teh nation.
They want economy. Railroads
provide the cheapest available j
form of mass transportation, both
for persons or goods, comfort and
So it goes, all down the line-'
The rails are not only meeting
the public s needs and wants—
they are anticipating them. Rail
road progress is never ended,
and the march toward better,
more flexible, more inexpensive
service knows no halt.
Not so many years ago agricul
tural cooperatives were regarded
with suspicion. Some believed
that they could produce nothing
worth while, they were needless
“luxuries’’. Others thought they
would merely waste time and
money of their farmer members.
Today the cooperative has
come into the “necessity” class
ification so far as the progressive
farmer is concerned. The time he
gives to it is as nothing compar
ed to the benefits he receives. And
the money he contributes in dues
is returned to him many times
over in more stable markets, and
better prices for his produce.
The cooperatives have slowly,
quietly and effectively caused a
