WAR IS ‘RACKET,’
VFW TO ASK STATEMENT WITH
REGARD TO INVESTMENTS
IN CONFLICT ZONE
BUFFALO, N, Y„ Sept. 2,-Maj.
Gen. Smedley D . Butler, retired
former Marine Corps commandant,
urged Wednesday that the United
States withdraw protection of
American investments in China.
At his suggestion, 4,500 cheering
delegates at the 38th national en-
campment of the Veterans of For-
eign Wars adopted an oral resolu-
tion asking President Roosevelt and
Congress to state their policy in
regard to these investments,
Butler, who spent seven of his 35
years of service with the Marines
in the Far East, also called upon
the encampment to adopt a reso-
lution demanding that American
flags be taken off any vessel not
owned by the United States govern-
“Fly Their Own Flags"
“Let those companies who are
profiting by war fly their own damn
flags,” he said.
“less than eight hundred million
dollars of United States money Is
invested in the Far East,” he con-
tinued. “But if the United States
went ever there to fight it would
cost the government a million dol-
lars a day.
“It would be far more sensible to
give these interests their eight hun-
dred million dollars and call our
Marines back home.
“If we do that every American
mother would get down on her knees
The many Shamrock friend of Rev.
J. J. Grubbs (above), will welcome
the opportunity to again hear him
in a revival at the Assembly of God
church, beginning next Sunday

and thank God for organizations
such as the V. F. W.”
“All Wars Are Rackets"
Eutler charged that the same
“moneyed interests” which caused
United States participation In the
World War are ready to raise the
same cry In connection with the
Chinese-Japanese conflict as they
did back in 1917—that “there was
grave danger to American homes

Happy but almost speechless was Mrs. Ben D. Parker, 2126
Grape Street, Abilene, when shown the super-duty Frigidaire

it, too,” she told Harold D. Austin, who made the presentation.
Thoughtful of Mr. Austin, who sells the refrigerator, she oblig-
ingly added: "Every woman needs a Frigidaire!”

poly to March 1, 1940; but even If
Congress does not then act, the end

The new act, designed to replace

the aim to stabilize the industry.
The domestic market is divided
among various producing areas—!

Cuba, Philippines, Virgin islands
and other countries.
