IitJKD Why It Is That Nations Will Head for Palestine This war will end at the gates of Palestine. The larger nations will head toward that land, being driven by a des- - tiny of' which they are unaware; and there they will fin-ish the Armageddon they now pre fighting to the salvation of what is left of the Israel nat.ons and the utter destruc-tion of their enemies. Here's why they are going there: Palestine is the very center of the land, air and water surface of this warring world, It is also the strategic cent-er of the fighting might of Britain. The Dead Sea contains more wealth than all of the world's banks, chemicals to the value of Twelve Hundred Billion Dollars, sufficient fertilizers, fuel and explosives for a thousand years. What a temptation to the warring, gree y nations. Uuder its surface lies a great ocean of oil Giant irriga-tion works are making the soil most valuable. Tractors are doing their work and great shovels are literally mov-ing mountains. Moses might today lead the children of Israel from Egypt to Jeiusalem over paved h ghways in less than twenty-fou- r hours. As the Jews and others de-velop the land the despots will covet it but their plan will fail. The story is wrilten as plainly by the prophets as it can be told after it has happened. , Carbine Ousts Pistol in Army New Weapon Is a Defense Against Parachute and Low-Flyin- g Planes. WASHINGTON. The automatic pistol of the army will be displaced by a new weapon, a carbine, in what Secretary Stimson called "one of tha most significant changes of weapon! for the army that has ever taken place." The carbine, a "little brother" oi the Garand rifle, is described as filling a long-fe- lt need, inasmuch as the pistol is a defensive weapon while the new gun may be used offensively or defensively. Weighs Five Founds. Only five pounds in weight and three feet long, the carbine is de-signed not only for the infantry, but will find, Colonel Stimson said, an important place in the cavalry, ar-tillery, engineers, armored corps, parachute troops and other branches. All infantry officers be-low the rank of major, all non-commissioned officers and most of the enlisted men, now armed with the pistol, will carry the carbine. Primarily intended for men whose duties make it impracticable to car-ry the regular service rifle, the car-bine will increase the number of rifles in an infantry regiment by al-most 50 per cent. It will also be a significant factor in defending rear areas against sudden attack by parachute and other troops and g airplanes. Two models out of seven submitted will be tested, one made by the army ordnance department, the oth-er by a commercial concern. Long Firing Range. The carbine will be of 30 caliber with a bullet similar to a 38 caliber but with much more striking power. Its weight of five pounds contrasts with the Garand and Springfield, of about nine pounds each, while its firing range is effective up to 300 j yards as compared with the pistol range of 50 yards. In the infantry, nearly 175,000 men will receive the carbine. More than 600 of the 944 light rifles which j will be added to an infantry regi- - j ment will go into "the forward area," j Increasing the fighting strength if the units there. j Six out of eight men in a machine gun squad will carry the carbine. The gunner and the assistant gun-ner, who carry the gun and tripod, will have pistols. With the carbines, the squad may keep on fighting even if the machine gun is wrecked. b " THE NEXT NINE YEAItS An Analysis and a Prophecy ftr Wing Anderson First Printing, July 1938 The next nine years will see the complete collapse of the J financial system now in use throughout the world. The priest-hood, as represented by the Roman Catholic Church and other J state religions, will be abolished; labor unions will be no mare nor will there be any laws preventing the free cfhoice of a pro-fession, world travel, or choice of residence. There will be no duties, nor tariffs; no warships, nor armies; no restrictions upon the liberties of man or nation after 1948. Nine years of war and revolution are ahead; to be fol-- i lowed by a thousand years of peace. Wars are not unmitigated evils. Had there been no French ; Revolution, serfdom would still exist in France. Had there I been no American Revolution, we would still be vassals of Great Britain. Had there been no Civil War the colored people would still be slaves. J Every birth is accompanied by suffering whether it is the birth of an individual or of a new civilization. DEMOCRACY is the neutral between the negative reac-tionary forces of Fascism, and the positive aggressive forces ' of Communism. The eveolution of government is; first, mon- - J archies," second, republics; finally communes. Fascism is a temporary vortex of conflicting forces in which may be found elements of the three systems, feudalism, capitalism, and co- - operative ownership. Fascism is both a destroyer and a builder! Through Fascism, the church, money system, private owner-- , ship of land and factories, will be destroyed. By means of Fas-cism the people of the world will be trained in affiliation and cooperative organized accomplishment. To this extent Fascism is a builder. No evil is evil iri fact. That which appears as evil today shows itself as good to-morrow. Coming generations will rememeber the constructive results of the Fascistic regime and will have forgotten the destructive side of it. THE FUTURE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA No one can start a revolution before its proper time and no one can stop it once the hour has struck. m Not many months ago, Smedley Butler, former general of the U. S. Marines, announced that he had been offered finan- - cial backing for an army to march on Washington to take m control from our constitutional government and place It in the hands of the American Fascists. Butler was to be the Ameri-can Hitler. But Butler was not the man, nor was it the proper time. Fascism is coming in the United States. In the proper season the Mussolini of America will appear " and will be qiven a riqht royal welcome by the 'sixty families.' l .

Senators and representative who are beginning "eonsi ructive" criticism do not mean just that; they mean destructive criticism, and the more de-structive criticism they can make the better it will suit them Their hate is still seething and they still have a burning desire to feed fat the grudge they bear the Pres-ident When those in high place make a spiteful, destruct-ive criticism they give courage and license to every fifth columnist, and would-be-traito- r in the land. They areap-laucle- d in all the centers of the Axis powers. And those who wish to wreck by strikes take heart and become more determined to sink their axes deep into the very heart of their country. To 'them all we say this: "Jnst size upthe country you have today, the pror-perit- you have, the liberty and se-curity you enjoy, and then when the wreck you are in-spiring ethevs to mnke is complete, look upon the pieMire and compare the two situations We feel that we know that your course, and the course f those that, follow you. will make such internal trouble that the enemy will have little trouble getting on to the mainland, burning and de-stroying. They will be here, and don't you forget it. And then you wiM be-s- nshnmed and conscience stricken that you will want to jump into the gulf of oblivion. Lights ofNzwYork By L. L. STEVENSON One of New York's n links with the long past is Fraunces' Tavern at Broad and Pearl streets. Easy of access, it has been visited by thousands of tourists." It has a part in history, not only of the city but of the nation because of what occurred there December 4, 1783. On that day, George Washington's officers assembled in the "Long Room" on the second floor. It was a solemn occasion since theyhadmet to say farewell to their commander-in-chie- f. After the farewell, Wash- - ington surrendered his commission. The "Long Room" is now very much as it was in Washington's time since the building has been re-stored by the Sons of the American Revolution and is open to the public, with many Colonial relics on dis-play. Not long after 1700, Fraunces' Tav-- . ern was built as a residence by a French Huguenot, Etienne de Lan-ce-a descendant of Guy de Lancey. Etienne de Lancey came by a small fortune in his homeland and emi-- ' grated to America where he estab-- : lished himself as a merchant and in time grew wealthy. De Lancey street, on the lower East Side was named after him. It is not known exactly what time the residence was , changed into a public house, but in 1739 entertainments and dinners were known to have been held there. Fraunces opened his tavern there In 1762, but it changed hands sev-eral times before the Revolution. Then Fraunces regained possession and it has gone, down through the years bearing his name instead of that of the man who built it. v Not far away from Fraunces' Tav-ern is another link with Colonial days in New York, St. Paul's chapel, on Broadway between Ful-ton and Vesey streets. As a matter of fact, it is the only church in New York that dates back to days. Built in 1766 as a chapel of Trinity parish, after the burning of Trinity in 1776, it became the parish church. Among the wor-shipers were Lord Howe and Major Andre and the English midshipman who afterward became King George IV. President Washington and both houses of congress marched to St. Paul's after his inauguration at Broad and Wall streets for a service conducted by Bishop Prevoost, chap-lain of the senate. Afterward, so long as New York remained the cap-ital. President Washington was a regular attendant. St. Paul's is unique in the fact that it turns its back on Broadway, the front with the slim spire, facing toward the Hudson. In the old days, a pleasant lawn sloped down to the water's edge which Was then where Greenwich street is now. On the Broadway portico is a monument to Maj.-Ge- Richard Montgomery, who on December 31, 1775, with Col. Benedict Arnold, led the assault on Quebec and was mortally wound-ed in battle. Congress ordered the monument in 1776 and Benjamin Franklin purchased it in Paris. It was shipped to America on a pri-vateer. A British gunboat captured the privateer, but the gunboat in turn was taken by an American ship and in time, the monument reached its destination. In St. Paul's churchyard are a number of old red sand stone grave-stones, badly treated by the pass-ing years, on which are chubby faced winged cherubs. I have noticed them in cemeteries in West-chester county and elsewhere, but though I've made many inquiries have not succeeded in ascertaining their origin. Once a year, the path through the churchyard is barred. Pedestrians And it a convenient cut-off between Broadway and Vesey street and the barriers are erected to keep it from becoming public property. While strolling on lower Fifth avenue just after leaving St. Paul's the other afternoon, I thought the New York of the past really had come back. Passing was an carriage with crests on the doors, riding behind were two foot-men with cockades and pigskin tunics. The driver was also very correct, and in the carriage rode a lady who reminded me of pictures of Queen Victoria. Some day I hope to find out who she is. At Broadway and Forty-secon- d street, a furtive young man sidled up to me and whispered that he had a bargain in a diamond. He didn't say that it was stolen, but his man-ner indicated it had been. Just as he was on the point of taking it from his pocket, a detective came along and the young man disap-peared, so I'll never know how big a sucker I look or at least he thought I looked.

''. c- N- LUND- " f . Stone Village in New England Rated Ancient j NORTH SALEM, N. H. There j are indications that Irish monks lived here as early as 800 A. D. Several archeologists believe that a "stone village," recently excavat- - ed, was built more than 1,000 years ago by Culdee monks who came from Ireland to escape the persecu-tion of Norsemen. Archeologist William B. Goodwin of Hartford, Conn., is convinced of the Irish origin of the ruins. They consist of a cluster of stone houses, altars and walls built around a cen-tral plaza. Bands of Culdees first appeared in Iceland in 795. They built their stone houses on Papey island, where ruins similar to those of this com- - munity still stand. According to historians, the mi-gration from Ireland to New Eng-land shores via Iceland and Green-land is logical since both Irish and Welsh have legends of the discovery of a continent far to the westward. So far no human skeletons, tools or weapons have been found.' There is no clew as to what became of the builders if they were Culdee monks. They may have been wiped out by Indians or sailed back to their na-ti-land. Meanwhile, the stone vil-- jl lage attracts school classes and archeology students. j Peoples Open Forum in the City - County Building on j Saturday evening at 7:3o.

A dark red flash met the engineer. He cried, " God what is that." Another voice said, "stop right here, Something is wrong on the track."

California Cities Show Planning Rules of 1573 SACRAMENTO, CALIF. Several California cities even today bear the stamp of city planning regulations laid down by the king of Spain in a royal edict of 1573, the state plan-ning board revealed. j The ancient decree set forth standard regulations to be followed in establishing towns in the New world. Business was ordered to front on a central plaza, streets were oriented with relation to prevailing winds and objectionable features such as slaughter houses were re-stricted to a single isolated district Los Angeles, Santa Cruz, San Jose and Sonoma are among those com- - munities showing the influence of the early Spanish layout. Many Retired Persons j Are Going Back to Work WASHINGTON. Chairman Ar- - . thur J. Altmeyer of the social secu- - rity board said that defense employ- - ment has caused a drop in retire- - ments because of age and that many I persons who had retired and were receiving pensions have returned to ' work. He said that 27,000 persons 65 or older have returned to gainful em-ployment, giving up their present pensions. Lips Paler and Paler, London Rouge Scarcer LONDON.
