The unusual thing about Hal is that
he has icachid a plate to which near

Hal last season made "varsity" on
the fast football team of his school,
was placed at right end. a difficult
position to fill, and participated with
ci edit to himelf nnd to his team in
some of the biggest football games
of the east.

strength, speed and team w ork that

THOSE TREATIES THAT WERE
TO SAVE THE WORLD
American diplomats in Europe
are trying to find out what has
happened to the scries of treaties
negotiated in Washington four
months ago, which statesmen. large
ly Republican statesmen. pro
claimed at the time were about U
rescue the world from chaos, an
opinion echoed by the foreign dip
lomats who helped make them. The
United States Senate has ratified
these treaties for armament reduc
tion, disposal of the Chinese ques
tion and so on, but the ratifying
power of no other Government has
no far paid the slightest attention
to them. Uncle Sam is thus "left
waiting nt the church" and docs not
like it. Great Britian is said to be
ready to ratify as soon as the Irish
question is settled, nnd the Irish
question has been up for 700 yearn
or thereabouts. The French arc go
ing to slow becnusu they do not know
whether they are going to be friends
or enemies of Britian for keeps
and France has been in this fix for
about 1,000 years, barring the period
of the World War. Italy is waiting
to see what France is going to do
