There has been so much false and mischievous theory of government ex pounded in this country recently, now by the mush heads and now by the violent mindedbetween which there is little to choosethat a' fearless pa triotic jsthd true expression of Ameri canism such as Governor Allen has just given us comes like a refreshing and invigorating breeze wafted by the spirit of Theodore Roosevelt him self. Let's hear it again: "Once and for all it must be under stood that the powers of the state now summoned into action for the protec tion of the people are above and be yond those of any association and or ganization, whether of capital or of in dividuals." That's what Americans have been waiting to hear and almost have de spaired of hearing the unchecked and rising chorus that has taken its key from the pipings of internationalism, world brotherhood and fatuous ideal ism that has supplanted the defiant and uncompromising note of national ism and Americanism in the govern ment at Washington. The long course of truckling and to interests and forces that are not American and can have noth ing in common with America or its in stitutions has borne jts fruitage. From a foreign policy that always put Amer ica second it was a consistent and in evitable result that *we should have a domestic policy that yielded the sov ereignty and the powers of govern ment to,the encroachments and claims of arrogant and selfish private inter ests. Never before in the history of this, government have the purposes of gov ernment and democracy been so bold ly and insolently challenged at home and abroad as they are now being challenged. Americans are being murdered and robbed abroad and froz and starved at home with equal impunity and by forces equally de structive of our democracy and the purpo'se for which it was established. Governor Allen's voice is sounding again the note rarely heard since the manly, and patriotic voice of Theodore Roosevelt was stilled. He reminds us again what this government is for and why it was clothed with the powers it possesses. The first and highest func tion of government is -the protection the people from whom government draws its being. Government can tol erate no domestic power greater than its own. The government that does so is doomed and its people are lost. Give us back the America of Theo dore Roosevelt. Give us back our na tionalism and self-respect. Give us1 a foreign policy that tells sloppy and sickly sentimental ^internationalism to go to the devil, and a domestic policy that tells every trouble-maker who doesn't like America the way Ameri cans made it to go to Europe or hell, as he may choose.Kansas City Star.

My back and head would hurt and ache terribly and rheu matic pains would shoot from one por tion of my body to another until some times I was almost wild.

A man who knows thirty-three dif fertn tongues and who says he does not care if he never learns another language is Wilford Stevens, one of the chief translators of the state de partment at Washington.

W-v' He is boyish in appearance,,likes to wear old clothes and usually rides back and forth between his office and home in the suburbs oft a bicycle, sometimes with a wire basket full of packages on, the handlebar. There is nothing about him to sug gest the bookworm or student on the contrary, he looks like a congenial suburbanite who would rather putter about a garden than ponder over ir regular verbs. In Stevens' list of languages are five oriental ones^Chinese, Japanese, Persian, Turkish and Armenian. Among the other he knows are Arab ian, Bulgarian, Croatian, Russian, Ger man, Portuguese, French, Spanish, Itanian, Yiddish, Swedish, Norwegian, Dutch, Hungarian, Finnish, ancient Greek, Latin, Hebrew, Polish and Rou manian. Then he knows three so-called uni versal languagesEsperanto, Ido and one of his own composition, which he has named Ufono.Everybody's Mag azine.

It is an autorhatic float, with a sen sitive depth-finding mechanism COUT ne'eted telephonically, and is plaqed on the^surface of the water. Another del icate instrument rests on the bottom, with a wire connection. When an en gineer wants to know the depth of water.at a particular spot he rings up "Katie" on the phone and she tells him the exact depth. She speaks in soft, jerky buzzes in the inanner of the Morse code, and when she gets out of her depth she stutters. If the ctirrent is too strong she becomes speechless. "Katie" will also, warn a captain how much water has got into the hold or the engine r^iam after a collision. The, floating ship's safei isf another wonderful invention. It autohaatically casts itself adrift from a sinking ship, and will send up a distress signal every hour for twelve hours.
