TROUBLE IN THE ORIENT
^JEWS reports from the far east indicate that war is im-
minent between Japan and China. Without knowing
all the details of the factors involved, it appears that the
impending clash is but another step in the determiner! pro-
gram of Japan to acquire territory for colonization at the
expense of her less progressive neighbor.
Attempts to subjugate the Chinese are not new. The
history of this ancient race reveals that many have been
its invaders, and numerous its conquerors. But the racial
calm has prevailed and in the end, the conquered have ab-
sorbed the conquerors. The race may quit fighting but it
never quits being Chinese. And by sheer weight of num-
bers, it eventually swallows the strangers within Its gates.
Which recalls Will Rogers’ story of the Chinese stu-
dent on a Pacific liner a few years ago when the Chinese
and Japanese were battling over what is now Manchoukuo.
It seems the youth each day sought information from
the radio operator as to the progress of the conflict. Think-
ing to “kid” the Oriental, the operator on the first day said,
"Yes, big fight today, 500 Chinese and 10 Japanese killed.”
On the second day, when the student inquired, the op-
erator reported, “Another big fight, 800 Chinese and 7
Japanese were killed."
On the third day, in answer to the usual inquiry, the
operator stated, “Biggest battle of all, 1,500 Chinese killed
and also 25 Japanese.”
To which the student replied, “Fine, plitty soon, war be
over, all Japs be dead.”
Japan may wrest much land from the Chinese; many
sons of Nippon may find new homes in the captured pro-
vinces, but even so, she may not even then seriously disturb
the “sleeping giant.” And it may be well for Japan that
this is so, for if that "sleeping giant ' ever were to become
fully awakened, the map of Asia, and perhaps the rest of
the world, probably would Ik* in for some big changes.
And while Japan prods China, Italy dispatches more
troops to Africa to “settle an old and it new account" with
Ethiopia, according to II Duce. Mussolini apparently is de-
termined to proceed with this “settlement" despite the
openly expressed opposition of Great Britain.
About all the world needs now is another belligerent
outburst from Herr Hitler to put old Mars back in the head-
lines in a big way. And to think that Europe is still try-
ing—or rather has given up trying—to pay for the last
little celebration. Let us hope that if the sparks do get
to flying thick that Uncle Sam’s credit department remem-
bers that Finland is the only one in the outfit to pay its
bill, and proceeds to put ull the rest of tin- gang on the cash
list. We paid for the last war. let’s have some one else
finance the next tine.
• •• •
With the swimming season upon us, and enthusiasm
for the water sports at a new high because of our fine now
municipal |hx,I, it might be a good idea to pass along some
“Do’s" not "Don’ts" from the National Safety Council.
Swim with someone.
Wait two hours after meals.
Avoid swimming when tired.
Dive only in deep water.
Rememl)er these brief suggestions, and remember also
that any one who takes risks in public bathing places en-
dangers not only his own life but the lives of others as
well. Let’s not have any tragedies to mar the pleasures of
a happy summer.
Just to keep the record straight, it is well enough to
rememlH*r that many of the most vocal critics of the New
Deal were so scared, along about the end of the Old Deal,

HE WANTED TO LEAVE HOME!
NJEW YORK, June 8-The largest
1N uncut diamond in the world
will be in New York in a week or
two, stored in the safes of Harry
Winston, Rockefeller gem denier.
Eighteen months ago an indigent
Soutli African prospector named
Jacobus Jonker stumbled on the
dirt-crusted stone while tramping
over his small farm after a heavy
rainstorm. Jonker sold the sparkling
five-ounce stone to a London syn-
dicate for $370,000. which is more
than even a father of seven chil-
dren can conveniently spend in a
dozen birthday parties.
Usually, diamonds discovered in
British mines find their way to the
royal crown Jewels, but Jonker’s
farm was private property and the
stone was placed on the world mar-
ket, It is as large as a hen’s egg,
and more valuable than the famous
Koh-i-noor and Cullinan diamonds.
Winston would like to resell the
Jonker find to an American pur-
chaser. If possible Any bids.
* * *
CAGEY—The problem of shipping
the valuable gem to New York is
something that keeps Winston
awake tlie.se nights. Diamond mer-
chants use various strategems to
protect great gems In transit. One
of the most common, because it is
so simple that it escapes attention,
is to send I he gem by ordinary reg-
istered mail, so that not even the
postman suspects he is carrying a
inlllion-dollar package when he de-
On one occasion, a great South
African diamond was sent by or-
dinary post, but at the same time a
worthless replica was dispatched
under heavy guard. Had would-be
robbers overcome the convoy, they'd
have had a few cents’ worth of glass
for their trouble
I tried to get a hint from Win-
ston about his plans for the Jonker
hlpment, but he didn't like the
look in my eye and refused to talk.

BRAINTWISTER—One of the elev-
e'p.st inventors In town is William
Herrschnft. whose ingenious devices
have been viewed by hundreds of
thousands of amused spectators all
over the country. His stuff usually
appears without Ills name attached,
but advertising corporations and
theatrical promoters turn to him
whenever they need some particul-
arly novel stunt.
Tlie nine-fool figure of Fred Al-
len, which panicked the crowds at
the Chicago Fair, was one of hts
brain children. The figure grim-
aced. talked, sang songs and laugh-
ed—an elaborate contraption which
was synchronized with the sound
track sf a phonograph record.
Herrschuft is also the fellow who
devised the Wishing Well and Shad-
owgraph at the Billy Rose Music
Hail last year. Visitors will remem-
ber the girl who appeared at the
bottom of the well after you pour-
ixl a drink 'at 25 cents peri down
the abyss. It was all done with mir-
rors, lenses and photo-electric cells.
The shadow stunt was n sort of
stereoptlcon adaption. Others of
Herrs<haft's marionettes and phot-
ographic devices have been used In
local theatres for years.

MIGRATION — New York club-
houses keep moving northward.
Virtually every Important club of
thirty years ngo was on nr within
one block of Fifth avenue Today
there are on the avenue only the
University, at 54th street; the Met-
ropolitan. at 60th, and the Knicker-
bocker, at 62nd.
The trend has been away and up
from the famous thoroughfare
Three deendes hro, six out of the
sixteen leading clubs were on or
below 34th street, nnd only one—
the Metropolltan- was above 69th.
Now the Union league Club, at
Park avenue and 37th street, rep-
resents the southern boundary, nnd
at least four are above Central Park
Tlie elubs have simply kept pace
with the business, theatrical and
residential migration to the north.
The F.nst Side slums still remain
where they are. but the folks down
there don't bother about such things.
