Plumb r' Shelton Librarian The democratic way of life is ithe better way of life because it i i l , l mt 0f 13 highway l l l ‘ is not built upon Wealth, gov- ; ernment, or good fortune but upon l reason and Simple moral strength. . Willingness for personal sacrifice, ' -_ loyalty to ideals and principals, faith in spiritual power, good will toward fellow men, tolerance, generosity and exercise of the I l for I lGolden Rule are universal and timeless spiritual weapons which bring about a better world. Bombs for democracy may satisfy the unthinking. But the thinkers know that ideas are its base. The American Library Association has ljust issued a list of books eni-' loodying these ideas. Some of these titles are new. Some of l them are old. The former should be read; the latter reread. Sum- mer is the time for fiction.

Third opinion of Gano Dunn, consultant the heroine meets every situation ‘with the Office of Production With bravery. dignity. and forti- tude characteristic of some of southern cotton growers and once more have for them the lesson that it is no longer wise to put all their work and hopes on one staple product. During the first eight months 0f the season that began Aug. 1, 1940, exports of cotton, ex— cept from British India for The Attic, Basement or Garage --- turn those Old Things into Now! which figures are lacking, to- taled 2,400,000 bales, compared with 7,800,000 bales the preced- ing year. This is a decrease of 69 per cent and is largely attrib- utable to the new World War. Egypt, Peru and Argentina all suffered reductions in cotton ex- ports, but the chief cotton vic- tim of the war was the United States. It exportedflclmly 878,000 bales, compared wi 5,637,000 in the . . for Y 0“ 1' Patronage and preceding year, or a reduction of 34 per cent. Britain, as usual, was the best customer of America. Soviet Russia took no American cotton after Decem- Appreciation of Our New Dining Spot on Hood Canal. We fie el deeply g r at e f u l for the Fine ber, 1940. and Japan took only 59,000 bales, the lowest in three decades. THE fact is that Japan turned to Brazil, as have some other countries. Brazil’s cotton ex- ports reached very closely to the figures fur the United States— 745,000 bales compared with 531,000 a year earlier. That is a gain of 40 per cent and an in- centive to the farmers down there to grow more cotton. Their best customers were Japan, China, Canada, Spain and Swe- den. Japan took 243,000 bales, or one-third of all the exported Brazilian cotton. America has declared its pur- pose to aid the democracies, the British Empire and China, in their war against aggressors. But China and Canada have turned to Brazil rather than the United States for their cotton. Shipments from Brazil to China were more than double those of last year and Canada’s pur- chases beat all former records. Brazilian shipments to Europe largely declined, as did those of the United States. Two Euro- pean countries, however, made new records in buying from Brazil, Spain taking 73,000 bales and Sweden, 26,000.
