Our Country Right or Wrong
WILL WE BE IN THE PROCESSION?'
Surveys are being made over the nation
for the purpose of determining postwar de-
mands for air express and air freight. When
one looks at a map showing the design for
America's worldwide air routes, the import-
ance of such preparation and co-ordination of
the facilities to be offered the public becomes
*According to postwar plans now on paper,
the United States expects that its interna-
tional airlines will fly 140,000 miles, 60,000
of those miles over new routes. Where, be-
fore the war, passengers were the principal
load, it is expected that air express and
freight will add tremendously to the future
cargo of the airlines.
A great portion of this traffic will be with
the South American countries, and Port St.
Joe, if it had the proper airfield facilities, is
ideally situated as a hopping-off, point for
this traffic to our southern neighbors, both
for sea .and laid planes.
Are we going to be at the tail end of this
future air procession or are we going to be
in on the ground floor?
WARNS OF JAP PEACE BID
T. A. Brisson, noted Far East authority
and author of the much-discussed book,
"Japan In China," sounds a timely warning
this week that Japan's newly organized war
cabinet is plotting a compromise peace "of-
fensive" to be launched after Germany's de-
This offer will be carefully timed, Brisson
says. We can expect it in the wake of Ger-
many's final collapse, when Britain and the
United States are in the trough of the wave,
wrestling with such problems as the transfer
of armed forces and equipment to the Pa-
cific, and industrial reconversion.
The terms will go far, possibly even to the
extent of relinquishing all Japan's southern
conquests and all of China proper. Manchuria
and Korea will not be offered, thinks Brls-
son, since they are both necessary for Japan
if it is to remain a great nation.
There can be no question as to what ac-
ceptance of such terms would mean. With
the raw materials and industrial facilities of
Korea and Manchuria, Japan would have all
the necessary resources to heal the wounds
of this war and lay careful plans for a full
success in the next one.
On the other hand, China, disillusioned in
the Western democracies, might fall an easy
prey to the machinations of Japan's agents
engaged in the work of preparation for the
These are the essential factors which make
it necessary that the task now well begun be

victory in the Pacific is too great price to
