Doubtless In this course he has not

and the best loved of an President
'hat ccr sat in the White House"
upon to face at the very threshold of
his new position.
His record is that of a sincere and
consistant advocate of arbitration and
of international peace. He lias declared
repeatedly in speeches that nations
ought to bend their energies toward
abolishing war, so that their peoples
may be free to work out domestic
economic difficulties, which, at present
especiall, so profoundl affect them.
He has urged that the United States
keep out of the thread of diplomatic
scheming abroad and that it seek no
aggrandizement of terntor or power
b conquest His ideal of this country
has been that of a free government, a
model of unselfishness, generosity and
helpfulness It is the irony of fate
that one who has won distinction as
an opponent of war should come into
power at a time when a threat of the

Antiseptic Finger Bowls and Doorknobs
There is a bill before the Legislature
ot I'ennsvhann providing for the anti
septic purification of finger bowls when
ever thev have been used bciaiisc the
arc receptacles of bactcrn 111J a men
ace to public health There mav be a
difference of opnion as to the efficiency
of numerous hvgicnic reform methods,
bu it seems inconceivable that anv one
should dispute the dcadluicss of dip
ping unshielded fingers into water con
tamed in any receptacle which lias not
been subjected to a thorough anti septic
cleansing since it was used last It
may be taken as a blot upon civihza
tion that heretofore these precautions
have been neglected.
The adoption of this needed reform
prompts the Philadelphia Evening Tel
egraph to urge another the anti
septic doorknob Jvo doubt there is
a good deal in what our contemporarv
savs about this deadlv instrument of
destruction of life or health " especially
since in the vast majority of cases the
knob is touched with the ungloved
Of course, it would be practically
impossible to sterilize each doorknob
every timeitisused but it maj not be
nccessarv to do that There is reason
to believe that it will be possible to
elaborate a serum with which each
doorknob mav be inoculated and which
will render it immune and insure its
