' The American cow furnished a vast amount of milk for the world In 1919. Nearly a billion pounds of condensed milk were sent out of this country last [year, at an export value of about $126,- 000,000. This milk was sent to 90 coun- tries, colonies and islands of the world. The quantity shipped i n 1919 was 50 times as much as i n 1918 but its value ' was nearly 100 times as much. Frahce took 112,000,000 pounds, against 41.- 000,000 pounds In 191S, and 425,000,000 pounds were sent to the United King- dom. Approximately 15,000,000 pounds of condensed milk were shipped to South America against 1,000,000 pounds in 1914. AH over the- world American condensed milk is becoming more popular. The present output In this country is about 2,600,000,000 pounds, and its market value is close to $500,000,000.

On every hand there are lndi-_ cations that it will be impossible for those nations to produce the food and provide the work to sustain their sev- eral populations without our aid. \Beyond the question of mere sus- tenance i s the still greater one of gel- ting their productive and distributive forces organized upon a basis which, taking into consideration changed con- ditions throughout the \world will in- sure the revival and cuntinuance or their prosperity. The United States alone of all the nations in the world is in a position now to take an apprecia- ble effort toward giving such assur- ances to Europe. The United States is the only nation from which Europe ex- pects such assistance to come. More- over, our own prosperity and the i maintenance of the industrial and fin- ,'incial strength to which our country attained during the war are inextri- cably bound up with the revival of prosperity in Europe. We moved long sines past the point where we could even consider the possibility of econ- omic self-sufficiency. The Exchange Situation. \The extension of assistance to Eu- rope depends primarily, of course, up- qn the ability to produce the things which Europe needs, and no one who knows anythias of America's resources would doubLthe capacity of her farms and mines and factories to supply tew materials, machinery, fuel, and finished |,goods in any quantity that Europe might require. To what extent and bow long the productive energies of this country will function depends, however, upon the receipt of compen- sation by those whose eapital and la- bor are used.. Ordinarily they would be emnpensated by the importation of things from Europe which we need here, but which we do not produce at .all or which are produced more ecT>- - nomically in Europe, but under pres- ent conditions Europe Is either unable to produce these things at all, or her production is so out of proportion to the things which she obtains from us as to leave a huge balance, for which compensation must be made in gold. Extraordinary Balance. 'This balance has no'w become so large a s to upset completely the ordi- nary bases upon which exchanges'are' made with the result that the Ameri- can dollar i s at a premiuni in Great Britain, France, Belgium, Italy and] other countries which require aid. In other wordB, the prices those countries have to pay for American commodities ara increased by the amount? of the premium, a circumstance which tends [ to increase the stee of the batence and, I therefore,, the- premium -on the dollar. 1$ also tends to reduce the' amount of purchases made in this country by Eu- rope and, accordingly, to delay the re- sumption of business there. *Tf those countries had .gold to oft- set America's balance of goods the ex- change situation would be righted, but we should be flooded With gold, of which'we have more than enough now for carrying on the business of the country. Further additions t o our stock of gold would tend to raise pric- es and bring in their train the evils attendant upon inflation. \To rectify this situation America must provide credits here for Europe. In practice this means,that we must take Europe's promises to pay and sell them to Americans who have money to invest, \These promises to pay would be either in the form of securities issued by European governments, national or municipal, or by European corpora-, tlons to he sol* directly to American InvastOBS, or *•* mM bam the forsa To Prevent Flu and _ Three Rules You Should Observe (1) Sleep 8 hours—With windows wide open (2) Eat wisely—exercise regularly^—-duatftf^frprnr (3) Avoid crowds and persons having colds flu This Year is Milder The rules given above, recom- mended by the Now York City Board of Health, are guides to good health at all times. Particularly should they bo followed just now, when influenza is again abroad in the land. Authorities agree, how- ever, that the flu this year is less severe than in the last epidemic— the attacks are shorter and the death rate lower. In fact, many physicians insist that tho epidemics now -being reported from so many sections are not flu at all, but sim- ply the old-fashioned grip.

Thus, Americans with money to invest would be asslsHng Europe t o rehabili- tate herself and at the same time would he keeping the productive ma- chinery of their own country going. It this is the best way in which we can aid (and such is.the opinion, ot the closest and most competent observers of the problem.) the extension of assis- tance to Europe depends upon Amer- ica's capacity to absorb foreign secur- ities quite as much as It does upon her ability to produce ih e things which Europe needs. \The extent to which a people can absorb securities depends upon the amount of money they have available for investmenf and upon the _nmount of credit which they command \by rea- son of the flourishing condition of their economic life and the prospects of its greater development.
