MATES, THIS IS “NAVY DAY” “fTTINDER the terms of the Washington conference,” says |U | President Coolidge, “the leading sea-powers have united in the agreement that the United States is entitled to maintain a Navy equal to that of any other power. Thus we are assured of a naval rank second to none.” We are sorry the President said that. The public, naturally enough, had long since fallen into*the same error. We had e pected him rather to set the country right on this highly impor tant topic. Most decidedly we are NOT “assured of a naval rank sec ond to none” by the Washington conference. It merely “EN TITLED” us to such rank and we will be “ASSURED” of it only if Congress wakes up and does the necessary. The sad, sad truth is, our Navy, far from being “second to none,” ranks way below that of Great Britain and hardly above that of Japan. ‘Sea power,” says Admiral Robert E. Coontz, eoramander in-chief of our fleet, “is the basis of our real strength—not our fighting ships. By sea power we mean a combination of all means by which we can jrain and keep control of the sea. “The first great element of sea power is the fighting ship, the second element is the merchant ship and the third element is the base.” And Great Britain lays this country in the shade in .all three. Particularly with regard to naval bases. The Navy's job is not to stick around our coast trying to prevent the enemy from taking a shot at it, but to keep the enemy so far away that our shores will never, at any time, be in danger. But they can’t do that without outlying bases, fin the way to the Far East, Britain, for example, has Gibraltar, Malta. Suez, Aden, Colombo, Singapore and finally, off China itself, Hong kong. Even in American waters she has Halifax, Bermuda, Bahama, Jamaica and Trinidad. Thus her navy—which can out shoot ours because her guns can lift their nozzles higher, and outsteam ours because many of our ships, for lack of funds for necessary repairs, don’t dare operate under full power—has splendid bases strategically lo cated so that its maximum strength can be brought to bear in any quarter of the globe. Our only bases worthy of the name are on our east coast, farthest removed from the spots where* most likely they will he needed. Panama, an absolutely vital outpost, could easily be taken from either east or west, as was demonstrated during tin* last naval maneuvers. Protecting its eastern approach, not a base! True, we acquired Guantanamo, in Cuba, and the Virgin Islands for use as bases, but we’ve never done anything to make them really useful as such. On the west coast —off which expert opinion the world over agrees the next great conflict will, in all probability, be staged not a single base equipped as it should be. And, within 3,500 miles of Panama, none that could berth a capital ship for major repairs. Not even at Pearl Harbor, in Hawaii, our one best bet in that part of the world. Deeper water, heavy-duty cranes and all sorts of things are needed there. It’s a long, sad story, mates. But this is “Navy day” and here is something we all ought to think about. If you want to do something for your country, resolve this day to get a sharp stick behind Congress and make it make the Navy what it is “entitled” to be. Contrary to a widespread impression, if our sea power is to be “second to none,” we still have a long, long way to go. “IF YOU PIN ME DOWN TO FACTS . . .” “r ' "lF you pin me down to facts.

By WILLIAM PHILIP SIMMS Foreign Kditor Washington Bureau WASHINGTON. Oct. 27.—Japan ! is closing in on Pekin. Whatever else the latest coup in stricken China may mean, that ! much is clear. The treachery of the famed “Chris- I tian” general, Feng Yu lush ng. can | conceivably have no other result, ; particularly It stoppage ot the war : leaves the bandit king of Manchuria, Marshal Chang *!'.so-lin, the undis puted boss of Peking. Not that Tsao Kun, the ourted President, was much, if any. better. He probably was not. He bribed his way to office and was known as not too proud to spend Japanese money. I’.ut Marshal Chang openly admits it is his aim to make former Pre mier Tuan Chi-jui president of China. And Tuan, former head of i the Northern, or Chinese, Military party and leader of the infamous : "Anfu Club." owned body and soul 1 1 y Japan, would not anil could not lie anything but the willing tool of Tokio. Sincerity Doubted i As to the traitor ‘‘Christian, ' i General Feng, his role has been j despicable, whatever his motives. These, in a United Press interview, he said were to stop the war and en 1 bloodshed in China. Laudable, ! yes. But the way he chose to do t leads to doubts of his sincerity. Before the war started in Norlh China 1 pointed out the danger that lurked in Fi-ng. With 30,000 troop* in his command and in charge >t the capital's defenses, he was un mistakably the key to the whole situation. "But General Feng." I said in August, "is dissatisfied with his job. He aspires to a tuchuante, or military governorship, in Mong >- 11a. Mongolia is a part of Marshal Chang's territory, and until General Feng takes his banner to the camp iof Chang, his ambition must re man in unanswered dream." “This, it appears, he has just done —gone over to Chang. Betraying his chief. Marshal Wu Pei fu, who had ordered the Third Army com manded by Feng, to Jell'd, in Mon golia, he doubled on his tracks, j marched his men back, occupied ' Pekin and put the president to flight. Masters Are Rotten The "Christian” general cannot plead the rottenness of his masters as an excuse for his treason. Rotten 'they were, noMnubt. but if he joins up with the Japanese-owned Anfu clique and the bandit war-lord of Manchuria, he will serve even worse. No matter who loses in China, however, Japan wins. The famous "Black Dragon” society, which for years has received the unofficial en couragement of some of the highest officials at Tokio, including Viscount Ivato, present premier—long ago out lined a Chinese policy for Japan. "Black Dragonites” advise Nippon to make China a protectorate in practice if not openly. To do this the society urges that Japan foment ; trouble in the country until such a time as Japan would "select a man" and "help him organize" a govern ment” to rule the land. Says a secret report: "If the Im perial government can take advan | tage of this fact <that revolutionists jure short of funds) to make them a | loan and instruct them to raise | simultaneously, great commotion jand disorder will surely prevail all lover China. | “We can then intervene and eas jily adjust matters.” The Bobber Shop By C.

THE INDIANAPOLIS TIMES LA FOLLETTE LOYAL IN WORLD WAR Charges Against Him Based on Misstatement of Facts. By N. D. COCHRAN EPL T BLICANS have tried to injure Senator La Follette in l___J this campaign by reviving the charge of disloyalty during the war. There was no disloyalty. The charges made against him during the war, and revived now, were based on a lie. We entered the war in April 1917. Senator La Follette voted against the declaration of war. Once in it however, he supported every war measure Intended to carry on the vigorous prosecution of the war. He did vote against conscription and the espionage act. He voted against the War Revenue Act be cause it failed to tax wealth and war profits in proportion to the owners’ ability to pay. But that isn’t what he was criticised for then. The charge of disloyalty was based on a speech La Follette made in St. Paul on Sept. 20, 1917, over five months after we entered the war. La Follette Misquoted In that speech Senator La Follette said: “For my own part, I was not in favor of beginning the war. 1 don't mean to say that we hadn’t suffered grievances; we had —at the hands of Germany. Serious grievances.” But the report sent out to news papers by the Associated Press from St. Paul, and printed all d\er the country, quoted Senator La, Follette as follows: “I wasn't in favor of beginning tTie war. We had NO grievances." Based on that misquotation by the Associated Press, La Follette was denonuced by newspapers generally. On Sept. 29, 1917, Senator Kellogg of Minnesota introduced a resolution urging proceedings looking to the expulsion of sedition, giving aid and comfort to our enemies and hinder ing the Government In the conduct of the war.” The record shows that the investi gation was strung along by the com mittee for fourteen months. It was eight months before the Associated Press feebly did tardy jus tice by writing to the committee, saying: "The quoted matter was not read as carefully as it should have been. For otherwise the conflicting word ‘no’ would have been seen. The St. Paul Pinoer Press, from which our story was taken, quoted Senator La Follette as saying: 'We had grievances.’ We can not account for the disparity in any other way than stated. The error is regrettable and the Associated Press seizes the first opportunity to do justice to Senator La Follette." On Dec. 2, 1918, nearly fifteen months after the speech was de livered, the Senate exonerated La Follette and dismissed the charges. In the meantime, the armistice was signed and the war was over. Next, the Senate, without a dis senting vote, passed a resolution allowing Senator La Follette sr>,oMo for expenses in defending himself In ihe Senate against the false charges. Supported Troops La Follette’s real attitude toward the war after we had got into it, was expressed on the floor of the Senate Oct. fi. 1917, when he said: "There is, and of course can be, no real difference of opinion con cerning Hie duty of the citizen to discharge to the last limit whatever obligation the war leys upon him. "Our young men are being taken by the hundreds of thousands for the purpose of waging this war on | the continent of Europe, possibly Asia or Africa, or anywhere else that they may be ordered. Nothing must be left undone for their pro tection. They must have the best arms, ammunition and equipment that money can buy. They must have the best training and the best officers which this great country can produce. The dependents and relatives they leave at home must ho provided for, not meagerly, but generously so far as money can pro vide for them. "I have done some of the haMest work of my life during the bust few weeks on the revenue bill to raise j the largest possible amount of money from surplus incomes and war profits for this war and upon the measures to provide for the pro tection of the soldiers and their families. That I was not able to ac complish more along this line is a great disappointment to me. I did all that I could, and I shall continue to fight with all the power at my command until wealth is made to bear more of the burden of this war than has been laid on it by the pres ent Congress.” That last statement gives the real ro.'uson for the attempt to discredit and ruin Senator La Follette during the war. Jle wanted those who prof ited by the war to pay for it. They regard that kind of a Senator as dangerous. They are now raising money to defeat him for President. They don’t want that kind of Presi dent. They prefer one w r ho favors taxation measures like the Mellon plan. Nature Canaries belong- to the finch fam ily, and are near relatives of our goldfinch. Canaries were first brought s o Europe about three hun dred years ago. The business of canary breeding was first carried on in Germany; later England took it up. The original canary has been crossed with several allied species of European birds, and so we now have about fifty well-marked varieties on our market. Dr. Cuthbert Caristy, returning from a visit to the only tribe of pig mies on earth, in central Africa, says they are not black like the ne groes. but a very dark reddish.

Right Here In INDIANA -By Gaylord Nelson G' REENCASTLE gave a birth day party Friday in observ- ance of the one hundreth an nivesary of its founding. Thou sands participated in the celebration featured by a parade and pageant depicting scenes and incidents of the pioneer days. It was an ambitious undertaking successfully carried out. This month Elkhart observed its ) centennial in a similar mariner, as also did the little town of West Newton, in Marion County. Indiana towns are no longer cal low youngsters. Time is curing that fault. While ripe age may be a source of pride to any place or person, its value is sentimental rather than actual. Not long ago a New York woman celebrated her one hundred and four teenth birthday. Her younger brother, 100 years old, joined in the i festivities. The unusual birthday party received a couple of inches of space on an inside page of Ihe newspapers. Yet that party was her sole bid for fame. The next day she re turned to obscurity. Alexander the Great died at 33 — a world conqueror. His name will bulk large on many pages as long ias history is written. His deeds in fluenced the course of civilization, | though his years formed only a quickly vanishing bubble on the I stream of time. I It’s deeds, not years, that count. And. in Indiana communities, the character and deeds of the people— not city age—make our centennials memorable. Parents j UDGE FRANK J. LAHR, of the juvenile court, had be v fore him the parents of four I delinquent boys. In the course of j his lecture lo them lie observed: “It is surprising how much par (cuts ran teach a child. You parents : are to blame if you have burglars in vnur home instead of normal t kildren.” It is natural for children to learn from their parents. That's one rea- I son the human species maintains precarious leadership of the animal kingdom. Racial progress is brought about jby one generation teaching its wls jdom to Hie succeeding. A turtle de posits eggs in the .-and, and forgets (them. It's progeny swims on the soup label. No progress. So turtles will never own automo biles or make radio sets. | The human parent as the trans mitter "f knowledge has heavy re isponsibility and little applause. For if the offspring , attains marked ! success he is termed self-made. But : i? he decorates a scaffold or becomes la penitentiary number then the par ents are blamed. | Neither is entirely correct. J Because the child is also the prod uct of environment. Which, with j crow ding population, becomes less I the home and more the streets, playgrounds, school, and movies. These modern tendencies make the | role of parent difficult. But still j successfully played. For few chil jdren taught, carefully by their pur jents turn out to he paste gems in s'* id of real jewels. Clean-Up T‘ jo DAY the city begins its an nual clean up campaign. ; John F. Walker, superintend ent of street cleaning, beseeches peo j plo to pile their leaves and trash (along the curbs. His hardy hands j will cart it away. I After Nov. 10 he won't cheer over I the raking of leave*, into tie' gutter. | ft will then be an affront and infrac ! tion of a city ordinance. Punishable. . as usual, by death. An annual intensive clean-up is a j good municipal habit. | For, in a twelve-month, dead I leaves, dead tin cans and decrepit j but still crawling rubbish accumu late on every one’s premises. AYlth ! out a periodical clean-up the prop !erty owner would never see face to ! face the security on which lie ne- I gotiated bis mortgage. Leaves and trash of yesteryear would soon bury a city full of grow ing things, like Indianapolis. Other cities have failed to hold regular clean-up campaigns. And j now archaeologists are digging for i them. Babylon and Ur have been tin i earthed, others haven’t been found. And those that have been uncov ered are not much to brag about for looks or residential purposes. With cooperation from the citi zens the street cleaning department with its clean-up campaign can dig Indianapolis out of the leaves and trash. AVhieh beats waiting for an archaeologist. Halloween L 1 "— ~J ATE Friday night a 17-year old girl motored at thirty five miles an hour on the sidewalk around the Monument. She thought it a keen Halloween prank to drive there, was the expla nation she gave the motorcycle po licemean who finally flagged her. Probably it was a trenchant jest. Many of the Halloween antics are. For this festival, which began life as an evening of innocent fun and merriment, has become to many just an excuse for defacing, damag ing or destroying property. Judged thus the girl’s escapade wars not so mirth-provoking. For the Monument was not de faced. The girl is outwardly un damaged. And no unwary pedes trian was taken apart or his en trails festooned from the frame work of the Columbia Club's new home. Still it was an excellent caper. Quite in the modern Halloween man ner. Even though no pedestrian happened along to become the butt of the joke—and the center of inter est at a funeral. For the modern goblin who walks on All Souls eve has mostly a slap stick sense of humor. He neither endears nor amuses. And her escapade had the same mirthful possibilities of many others that make the nig-ht of Oct. 31 a trial to people who don’t nail down their personal possessions.

It was (formerly the custom, especially In i smaller towns to serve the heaviest jand heartiest meal, "dinner” in the I middle of the day. with a less hearty meal in the evening known ’as (‘ supper." However, with the.in iTi a.-e of husienss and the difficulty I in getting the family together in the ; middle of the day. it became ncm essary to serve the heartiest meal j in tfic evening, and to "lunch” in the ' middle of the day. Nowadays I "supper" usually means refreshment i taki-n after the- theater or dance at | night. Which has the most force to it a | push or a pull?

Undoubtedly j there might be a difference in the ! amount of force that could ;be exerted by pushing and pulling ; respectively by the same individual j or the same animal, or by a piece of machinery'; this would depend tipon the individual capacity of the man or animal, or the construction of the machine, and the method adopted in the pushing or pulling process.

Chapin, associate cura tor of birds of the American Mu seum, is authority for the story of a bird living in the wilds of Central Africa that guides men to the hives of wild bees. The bird, called an Indicator, lives on honey but has to depend mostly upon man to open the bees’ nest. The natives protect the Indicator birds and punish any rffe who harms them. The bird seems to spend its time locating honey and then trying to find a man to open the hive. It flits around a man until he follows and the bird then flies straight to a hive. The only other way of opening the hive, for the benefit of the bird, that has been discovered, is for the bird seemingly to induce a badger to follow and do the work. While these instances are among the most curious facts in natural history they are not as rare as might be supposed. There are various alli ances for protection and help among birds and beasts.
