STAKES AND SPECTACLES
ON FAR EAST TRADE
There has been a great deal of
toplofty talk about "our stake In
the Par East." and the value of
trade with China and Japan as af-
fecting the American policy there.
Instead of windy generalities
about such trade, the thing to do Is
to put on a pair of spectacles and
look closely. The Commerce De-
partment’s most recent trade fig-
ures are good ones on which to
focus the spectacles.
They reveal that for the month
of August, American exports were as
Buyer-China, 1936 $4,763,000: 1937
Buyer. Japan—1936 $10,763,000;
U. S. exports from these countries
during the same periods were:
Prom China—$4,693,000 in 1936:
*7,961.000 In 1937.
Prom Japan—$16,948,000 in 1938;
$16,297,000 in 1937.
Now of course this is an appreci-
able stake, and helps greatly in the
building up of American export
trade, which was $178,975,000 in
August, 1936. and jumped to $277,-
695.000 in August 1937.

The 1936 figures are more reliable
as a gauge for the future, because
the increase in both China’s and
Japan’s imports from the United
States this year is clearly due to
both cases largely to their demand
for war materials, airplanes for the
Chinese, ar.d scrap-iron and other
similar supplies for the Japanese.
Such trade is temporary. We
found that out of our cost when
Europe fought in 1913-1918. After
the war it suddenly dropped away,

Increased production facilities and
no sales. Therefore the “war boom”
in sales to China and Japan is no-
thing to get enthusiastic about.
Taking the figures for 1936, be-
fore the present war began, we find
that American exports to Japan

that wheat farmers know how

modern rulers. His Majesty
Ahmed Zog of Albania mounted
the throne in September, 1928,
and has been having his troubles
Zog's troubles are chiefly those
of modernizing his mountaineers.
He started this campaign almost
as soon as he took the royal scep-
ter. America, he announced, was
to be his model. So Zog began by
voting himself an American salary
of $50,000 a year. Next, he im-
ported a 40-piece American jazz
band for the palace-
So far, so good. But then Zog
indicated he wanted a wife with
a western background, an Amer-
ican, if possible. She must be a
thinker, he announced; must be
personally attractive and, finally,
she must have an income of at
least $1,000,000 a year.
Hardly had the word spread
through the little state when rev-
olution broke out. And it's been
breaking out ever since The Al-
banians, Moslems, don't and won’t
accept the Idea of a western wife.
Thus far they’ve won the battle.
But Zog is still determined. Mean-
while, with Italy
lending the mon-
arch a few million
francs a year, the
situation has be-
come even more
