WHITEWASHING THE FACTS.
Big army and navy advocates are
much disturbed becaus ethe facts re
garding government expenditures
have at last reached the public. The
citizens of the country have learned
with alarm that 88.4 per cent of the
total appropriations of the United
States government for the fiscal year
1921 went to pay the costs of past
wars and to prepare for future wars.
It is necessary to cover up these
disturbing facts somehow so the
army propagandists are regrouping
the year's figures and spreading them
over the country in an effort to hide
the important facts. The costs of the
World War, comprising 52.2 per cent,
of the whole budget are grouped to
gether conspicuously as though they
were an entirely separate item. Be
side them are placed the amounts of
.the currant 8ppr?l?r.iat'0ns for tne
Army and Navy by way of ennui'st. (
but not with the idea that they
sh t? considered together. They
are vt Se taken sepai.w , mere
to be no relation in the reader's mind
between war costs and costs for
maintenance and enlargement of the
military machine. All emphasis is
laid on the $450,000,000 appropriated
for the Navy and the $418,000,000
for the Army which together amount
to 18.3 per cent, of the whole expendi
tures of the government. The public
fa to think the only important fact
is that the services get so small an
amount of the whole. It is not pointed
out that even this 18.3 per cent is
more than half again as much as the
entire amount that was spent for con
' structive purposes for the whole year.
Less than twelve dollars out of every
hundred spent by the government in
the fiscal year 1921 went for con
struction. The balance went to pay
the costs of past destruction and to
prepare for more, or, in other words,
to pay war costs.
That is the fact the militarists
would cover up and that is what the
tax-payer has found out. Having
learned where over three-fourths of
his taxes go no amount of white
washing of the facts is going to
siler.ce his protests. Those protests
arc pouring into Washington from
all sides. He is demanding results
from the conference about to meet
in that city; results which shall mean
a real reduction in the armament bur
den of the world.

Novelist Lost Vogue.
During the deluge of "realism" Mrs.
Southworth's vogue as a novel-writer
declined, but the older generation, or
the older generations, remained faith
ful to her and her books sold well.
Mrs. Southworth had furnished much
entertainment for young and old peo
ple for more than fifty years, but there
came a time when age forced her to
restrict her output. At least two of
her novels were published after her
death, and during her life and after
its close many of her stories were re
published, and there were numerous

ing question: how can humanity jus

demands no such toll; ambition and
greed must be denied it. If mis
understanding must take the blame,
then let us banish it, and let under
standing rule and make good will
regnant everywhere. All of us de
mand liberty and justice. There can'
not be one without the other, and
they must be held the unquestioned
possession of all peoples. Inherent
rights are of God, and the tragedies
of the world originate in their at
tempted denial. The world today is
infringing their enjoyment by arm
ing to defend or deny, where simple
sanity calls for their recognition
through common understanding.
New World Fellowship
"Out of the cataclysm of the
World War came new fellowship, new
convictions, new aspirations. It is
ours to make the most of them. A
world staggerinfi with debt needs its
burden lifted. Humanity, which has
been shocked by wanton destruction,
would minimize the agencies of that
destruction. Contemplating th
measureless cost of war and the con
tinuing burden of armament, all
thoughtful peoples wish for real
limitation of armament and would
like war outlawed. In soberest re-1
flection the world's hundreds of mil-v
nons wno pay in peace and die in
war, wish their statesmen to turn the
expenditures for destruction into
means of construction, aimed at a
higher state for those who live and
"It is not alone that the world can-1
not readjust itself and cast aside the
excess burdens without relief from
the leaders of men. War has grown
progressively cruel and more destruc

to this present day, and the reverse
order would more become out boast
"Gentlemen of the conference, the
United States welcomes you with un
selfish hands. wf harbor n
we have ao sordid ends to serve; we J
suspect no enemy; we contemplate or
apprehend no conquests. Content
with what we have, we seek nothing
which is anothers. We only wish to
do with you that finer, nobler thing,
which no nation can do alone.
"We wish to sit with you at' the
table of international understanding
and good will. In good conscience wc
are eager to meet you frankly, and
invite an offer cooperation. The world
demands a sober contemplation of
the existing order and the realization
that there can be no cure without
sacrifice, not by one Vf va, but by all
of us. 1
Surrender No Rights.
"I do not mean surrendered rights
or narrowed freedom, or denied as
pirations, or ignored national neces
sities. Our republic would no more
ask for these than it would give.
No pride need be humbled, no na

not to be done in intrigue. Greater
assurance is found in the exchanges

its cost robs the people of the way
to happiness and the opportunity to
achieve. If the finer sentiments were
not urging, the cold, hard facts of ex
cessive cost and the eloquence of
economics would urge us to reduce
our armaments. If the concept of a
better order does not appeal, then let
us ponder the burden and the blight
of continued competition.
"It is not to be denied that the
world has swung along throughout
the ages without heeding this call
from the kindlier hearts of men. But
the same world never before was so
tragically brought to realization of
the utter futility of passion's sway,
when reason and conscience and fel
lowship point a nobler way.

"Beauty is Only Skin Deep"
A gold brick always looks good. It has to. Its promising
appearance is its sole virtue. Looks alone will not sell
goods today. Merchandise with a name the name of its
maker has the call. For only the maker of worthy goods
can long afford to advertise. At the High Court of Public
Opinion any other sort is soon condemned.
Wise merchants and manufacturers seek the good papers to
tell the story of their wares. The publishers seek the repu
table advertising for the readers' guidance. The well-informed
buyer seeks news of good merchandise through the
columns of the best papers.
This proves the value of advertising. Neither advertiser
nor publisher can prosper without your patronage. There
fore, it is to their advantage to cater to you. They do it, too.
And it is distinctly to your advantage to be guided by the
message they lay before you the advertisements.
