Gotham's Marriage
Crop Shows Dearth
of License Seekers
7 Associated Pkui
New York, Nov. 4 While else
where in the country more people are
being married this year than ever
before, in New York times are dull
er than usual for the license clerks
andthe ministers. Government sta
tisticians recently concluded the 1921
crop of weddings would be a bumper
one, with Dan Cupid harvesting
1,,5QO,000 brides and just as many
husbands from the fields of the un
mated. And yet New York city's
record probably will shoy at least
3,000 fewer marriages than in 1920
or 1919.
There are easier tasks than giv
ing an explanation for this nation
wide epidemic of knot-tying in a
year when millions are unemployed
and a3 jnany more are brooding over
decreases in their incomes. So say
the sociolobists and others with pen
chants for finding out what they call
the why of things. But it is not dis
tressingly futile to seek a reason for
the fact that only 56,501 licenses
were issued up to a recent date here
this year compared to 59,065 in the
corresponding"Tftf7od of 1920.
In the first place, they will tell you
at the license bureau that there are
fewer immigrants than in the past,
because of the restriction laws. Un
married aliens always had a habit of
coming over here to enjoy freedom,
and then almost immediately fling
ing part of it away at the altar.
Many young men who might other
wise wed aver that when the land
lord would get through deflating
their pocketbooks not enough would
remain to calm the butcher, the ba
ker and those who deal in silk stock
ings, cosmetics, subway tickets,
poats, suits and the other things nee
ded by housewives, such as needles
for darning the husband's socks and
rooling pins to fashion biscuits and
maintain order.
Even when the New York suitor
has the money he often seems unable
to locate a home. This condition is
common. Because of the home shor
tage, many young things after their
conventional dizzy honeymogo return
to live with the girl's family or the
man's. Perhaps from this will come
a new field of humor, the son-in-law
and daughter-in-law jokes that would
give mother-in-law a long-awaited
"Lightning strikes hidden moon

Great's gift of toughness to his de
scendants," Prof. Anderson said. "He
also has passed an extreme speed
but its value in his offspring has not
been as great perhaps as his contri
bution of endurance. Peter Mann
ing fot this toughness or endurance
through his sire AzofT in a superla
tive degree. Last year he was a
consistent trotter and established
the world's record for three heats
in 2:03, 2:02, and 2:02. He also
holds the world's record for four-year-old
geldings with a mark of
2:02 Vj.
"Peter Manning's intelligence
could have come to him through
more than one line of his pedigree.
This is an important factor which is
sometimes underrated by people who
view a trotting race. No matter
how fast a horse may be or how
great his endurance if he will not
start right, stay in his gait or yield
himself to his driver he will nof
make records worthy of his speed
and endurance."

(llr Associated Preaal
New York, Nov. 4-The farmer
boy, the printers' devil and the work
a-day clerk are going to have their
pictures on the billboards and mag
azine pages this winter. They will
replace some of the swagger young
men who have been posing several
seasons for the artists hired by col
lar and clothes manufacturers. Not
a few of these concerns have con
eluded that the orchid is not the ffow
er of young American manhood, and
they are going in for sunflowers.
They say the buying public doesn't
like the ping-cheeked men who have
been showing the readers of adver
tisements what to wear. They seem
ed to have nothing to do but watch
polo ponies, indifferently peer at
yachts in the cove or ignore the foot
ball players on the field below them
in order to swap small talk with
girls in vivid sweaters and psort
Poople began calling them pretty
boys, cake eaters, lounge lizards,
sissies. Humorists poked fun at
them and the good old common peo
ple who bought most of the collars
and suits said "if that's the kind of
,a face you have to have to be well
dressed, I'll go through life a slouch.
But now they are going to show
the public that one can be "a regular
everyday fellow with a job and still
be smartly clothed. Last winter
there was a warm discussion within
the National Association of Retail
Clothiers as to the public attitude to
ward the "pretty men" in advertise
ments. This fall the result of this
discussion is apparent. Recently the

Florida's Greatest Newspaper
The Price of Bread The Length of the Working Day The Government Tax on Earnings
The Well-Being of the Race The Salvation of the Country The Education of the Chil
dren The Fate of Future Gener- ations The Sacrifice of
Humanity The Destruction of Civilization
These are just a few of the human problems that are hanging in the balance at the Washington Conference on
Limitation of Armaments.
Upon the outcome of this conference depends the answer to the questions which were the underlying causes of
the World War and which the Peace Conference at Versailles failed to solve.
But H. G. Wells will not be the only expert who will write of the Disarmament Conference for readers of The Me
tropolis. The management of Florida's Greatest Newspaper has lined up what it believes is the strongest staff of spe
cial writers to cover this big event. The following are included:
DAVID LAWRENCE, Washington's Foremost Political Writer.
WILLIAM JENNINGS BRYAN, resident of Florida, thrice candidate for president.
MARY ROBERTS RINEHART, one of the world's greatest women writers.
PETER B. KYNE, one of the country's greatest novelists.
