TRADE NEEDED, CLAIM
New York, Oct 28. (United Press.)
Practical application of the Vlove your
neighbors" principle by Americans is
necessary to restore normal trade con
ditions with Europe, Edward Filene,
of Boston, director of the United States
chamber of commerce, told the New
York clerical conference today.
Granting credits particularly to the
small European nations in order to
bolster up exchange rates until the en

country is lessened, is necessary to
save weaker countries, he said:
If bankers ftre forced to assume the
entire burden of credits, Filene said
they mast demand absolute security
and nations that are in most need and
consequently have least credit, will suf

piece just as you would a banana peel.
It leaves the skin free and smooth as
though you never had a. callus. You
need no more fussy plasters, sticky
tape, ''packagy" bandages, knives or
scissors for corns or calluses. ''Gets
it" is the national corn remover the
biggest on earth, used by millions. It
never fails. You'll work, play and
