Why Your NERVES BLOW UP
How to Prevent It Read the Book “NERVE FORCE”
the most remarkable book ever written on•Control of the Nerves. You should study the teachings set forth in this book whether your Nerves have troubled you or not. We are living in the age of Nerve Strain-the age of worry, grief, and trouble. Many of our habits tend to weaken and wreck the Nerves. These important points are explained in detail and the advice given is the result of over 25 years' experience by the author as a Nerve Specialist and Psycho Analyst. The startling facts he reveals show clearly that we are all ruthlessly wasting our precious Nerve Force, which is a direct cause of codless mental and physical misery.

the American note of the 5th of April inst., concerning the equality of rights among mandatories in the exercise of their mandates.
YAP AND DJAMBI
N April 29 two striking events
occurred in the emphasis of
American rights abroad. One was the publication of a note from the Italian Government to ours concerning international rights at that center of cable communication in the Pacific, the island of Yap. We quote the following:
Italy is fully convinced that the United States is not asking for any privilege in the island of Yap which is not equally granted to every other nation, including Japan. Italy is also convinced that the United States intends to protect its interests in the island of Yap with full consideration for the interests of other nations.
Italy, therefore, has not hesitated to express herself in a way which completely agrees with the text of
The second event was the publication the French Government's similar assurance three weeks ago.
The second event was the publication by the State Department of a letter addressed by William Phillips, our Minister at The Hague, to the Dutch Foreign Minister. The Dutch have continually shut us out from becoming financially interested in the development of the oil resources of the Dutch East Indies. A case in point is that of the Djambi oil field in the island of Sumatra. It is proposed that a monopoly of this field be given to a combination of the Dutch Government and the Batavia Oil Com
pany, the latter said to be controlled by British capital. A bill to this end has passed one house of the Dutch Parliament. It would bar the bid of any American oil interest for a concession in that region.
While Mr. Phillips is careful to say that our Government is aware of the laws and regulations in the Dutch Indies which prohibit foreign companies as such from entering the colonies for oil development, he does call attention to the fact that American capital stands ready to assist in that development. He asks for equal opportunity. He declares that we have borne the burden of supplying "a large part of the petroleum consumed by other countries and that the petroleum resources of no other country have been so heavily drawn
