We Must Conserve Our Natural Resources.
There is a remarkable article contained in the current number of
the Forum magazine, written by Dr. Edward G. Acheson. It should
be carefully considered by the present Congress, for it refers to the
vital question of conserving the great natural resources of the United
States.
Dr. Acheson has gained such high repute as a man of science
whose great discoveries bear the stamp of the age in which they were
made, that he speaks as one having expert knowledge and high au
thority.
In the article Dr. Acheson calls attention to the fact that the
four great resources of the United States are land, forests, minerals
and water. No other country, he asserts, is so bountifully supplied
with the natural resources that go to make a nation great as is the
United States. The development and exploitation of our natural
resources has put us in the front row of the nations of the earth.
"If our present prosperity is due to our natural resources, will not
in like manner our future position amongst the nations depend upon
the manner in which we use and conserve these resources." For
some years Dr. Acheson has made a careful study of the consumption
and the remaining stock of petroleum and coal. This study has con
vinced him that the time is at hand when through Federal legislation,
through the voluntary action of the people, and in all other ways
possible, wc must conserve our natural resources which are exhaust
ible, and that we can do this by utilizing our bountiful natural re
sources which are inexhaustible.
The importance of petroleum and coal to the industrial life of the
people is widely recognized as is also the lurking danger that with
increasing use of these resources the time will come when they will
be exhausted.
Dr. Acheson, however, calls attention to the marvelous service
that scicnce has performed in furnishing the means by which our
natural resources may be conserved through the utilization of our
inexhaustible natural resources. The dynamo enables us - to create
electric currents of vast power and we now have reached a point
where we can produce great electric current through the aid of the
dynamo, by utilizing water power instead of coal. Dr. Acheson says,
furthermore, that it has been learned by long, protracted and patient
research and by properly using electric currents that it is possible to
do everything we have hitherto been able to accomplish by burning
up our coal and wood. There is, therefore, no sound reason why we
should lose our industrial prestige because of the exhaustion of our
coal resources, since we have an almost inconceivably great resource,
never to be exhausted, in water power with which the aid of the
dynamo can be converted into electricity of very high potentiality.
Then again there is the question of petroleum exhaustion. Won
derful arc the uses to which the various products obtained from
petroleum are put and yet there is only one of these products that is
absolutely essential to our present industrial life, and that is lubricat
ing oil. We might substitute alcohol foi? gasoline and obtain the
alcohol from growing plants. We might use electric lights, but there
is nothing but oil which will serve for lubricating purposes. And if
we do not have lubrication our modern industry must cease.
The United States produced in 1917 66 per cent of the petroleum
of the world. This being the case \v?c must have produced more than
66 per cent of lubricating oil. Nevertheless, Dr. Acheson asserts that,
as is the case with coal, we have every reason to look into the future
without apprehension, in case we make use of the results of scientific
research so far as the conservation of our natural resources is con
cerned. Science has recently discovered a method of lubrication which
permits the reduction of the consumption of oil to less than one half
the amount that is used under old methods.
Dr. Acheson has written a very timely article. It should serVe to
awaken the public to the imperative need of so utilizing the inex
haustible natural resources with which the United States is so bounti
fully supplied as to make it possible greatly to conserve our natural
but exhaustible resources.
It isn't that the fair sex talks more than the other. It merely
talks more about the neighbors.
The peace treaty doesn't give other nations all that they wanted,
but it gives the Hun a great and glorious plenty of what he needed.
The special session of Congress will be able to attend to its work
as soon as it gets through expressing its opinion of the peace treaty.
Our idea is that it will take a lot more than forty years to get
Germany ready for another war.
Fighting is done by men who are compelled to fight Abolish
government's power to make men fight and you have abolished war.
Now that the world is cured of militarism, the next step is to
give it something to cure battleshipism.
A Christian is a good Samaritan. A good Samaritan is one who
realizes that national lines are merely larger State lines, larger County
lines, larger township lines.
The league constitution could have been more immediately useful
if it had provided for the compulsory arbitration of quarrels between
capital and labor.
Since the dawn of history, man has -made fervid declaration of
the good things he would do if helped to victory in the present
conflict.
When the state by conscription admitted that all citizens are the
property of the state, did it not admit the duty of caring for all
citizens'
The Washington Herald's Poet
Today Rhymes on
Builders.
By EDMUND VANCE COOKE
Hast seen a strong man die within his bed?
Hast seen him turn his pallid brow toward death?
Hast heard the signal in the throat which saith
He quits the ghastly fight for one last breath?
Then hast thou groaned aloud and bowed thine head?
But who can count the groans of yesterday
From war-beds, strewn in hideous disarray?
Oh pity! pity! pity all who can, ; -
And help to build the Brotherhood of Man!
Hast heard a mother mourning for her young'
Hast known the grief which never groweth old"
Canst multiply that grief ten million fold?
Then look at thine own Mother Earth. Behold
Her fainting with dry eye and bitten tongue.
Mourning her children beaten into clay,
Mourning her slain and mourning us who slay?
Who still shall slay unless we surely plan.
Unless we build the Brotherhood of Man.

New York. May 21?The first warm
sunshine of summer has brought the
early contingent of chorus men back
to Broadway. Others touring In musi
cal shows will soon be drifting In to
occupy the hall bedrooms In the side
street boarding houses.
The Automata will have many new
patrons for the chorus man always
coraee back to town, as Will Creasy
says, as free of money as a gnat la
of crutches. The chorus man Is a New
York type absolutely impossible to un
derstand
He is both pathetic and ridiculous
but st all times lovable. He is the
butt of all the bitter scorn of con
temptuous quips of blase theatergoer*,
and yet the man?and one man does It
all?who furnishes them for musical
comedies says he has never heard a
chorus man who knocked anybody or
anything.
Most of them have had their Big
Dreams and are willing now to drift
with the tide. An engagement here
and one there keeps the room rent
paid and buys provender. Peculiarly
the men who are so ambitlonlcss are
the snappy dressers of the Rlalto.
There 1s a little store on Eighth
avenue which they patronise. The
proprietor knows how to take second
hand clothes and Jazz them up Into
the latest Fifth avenue diet urns of
Beaunash. These bright afternoons
they swarm around the curbs of
Times Square.
Give them a three days supply of
cigarettes and a week's board paid
and life to them is real contentment.
The chorus man has shown that he
Is not a coward when the big moment
comes. A reporter on a Sunday paper
failed In a ten days search to find a
chorus inan slacker. All tried to get in
the service and only those who failed
to pass the physical test remained be
! hind.
There was one noted for his striped
shirts of silk, his wild hued spats and
I tlght-flttlng surtouts. He was In a
j "Broadway show and they used to say
(he was the only chorus man with an
ambition. He wanted to plav HamleL

A Politeness Drive fs on at Girls
[High School In Brooklyn. The drive

j careless of the little niceties. Now
manners, public and private, are In

The bus carrying tourists to China
town stood by the Broadway curb,
waiting for the load the ballyhoo was
j collecting with his megaphone. Un
der the flaring lanterns sat a young
j woman, quite alone, with a wide
awake wee baby, not more than six
months old. 1n her arms. Quits un
disturbed by the amusement and Inter
est her presence excited, she gazed at
the passing throng. That it was near
midnight, a time when children are
asleep In quiet nurseries dismayed her
not Nor did the open comment of
horrified mothers seem to reach her
ears. She meant to see the slums and
horrors of Chinatown at midnight, and
the baby was a side Issue. The child
will no doubt grow up strong and
sturdy and a more carefully reared
baby, safeguarded by every modern
device, succumbs to the flrst passing
ailment Babies are that way.

Who's Who
in
Our City
BEN L PRINCE.
Washington's voteless citizens
have doubtless pictured the District
tax collector as a species of octo
pus. reaching out for poor victims
whom he may gouge of their earn
ings.
Anyone who knows Ben L. Prince
has a decidedly different opinion. In
lact. they deem it a pleasure to pay
taxes to the genial and very human
Texan whose picture appears above.
In addition to his duties as tax
collector, Mr. Prince served as
chairman of local draft board No.
10. which Included the residential
section in Mount Pleasant and
vicinity. During this time he de
voted all his energy to the task of
registering Washington's young
manhood for the fight against the
Kaiser and worked night and day.
Mr. Prince was born on a farm
in Limestone County, Texas, in
18S1. He received his education in
the county schools; the Southwes
tern University, Georgetown. Tex.;
the State Normal School at Hunts
ville, Tex., and the Metropolitan
Business College, of Dallas. Tex.
In November. 1907, he came to
Washington with Representative
Rufus Hardy a* his private secretary.
For four years he was clerk to the
Committee on Expenditures of the
Navy.
In 1914 he was appointed District
tax collector by the Boari of Com
missioners, then composed of Com
missioners Newman. Siddons and
Harding. He has beer, serving in this
capacity sihce that time.
Mr. Prince slips awav frequently i
these fine days for fishing trtps to
Benedict, and it is rumored that he
Is as good at snagging bass as he
is collecting taxes from the unwilling
public. He is also interested in golf
and swimming.
He has been married six years and
is the father of a 4-ysar-oid girl. He
is a director for the Board of Trade, '
and a member of the Commercial
Club and a Masonic lodge.

Great work is being accomplished for the independence of the
Philippine Islands by RAFAEL PALMA, vice president of the mis

merce, and adds that American capitalists will be welcomed.
Mr. PALMA was formerly editor of a newspaper, printed in
Spanish. He says that the occupation was a trying one in 1898, "when
the staff had to be almost constantly flying before the advancing lines
of American troops, and the editorial rooms were frequently in a
dilapidated railroad car <*1 some sidetrack. The life of the editors was
one of danger at that time as on many occasions the movable sanctum
was punctured by American bullets."

been appointed by Chairman SAM R. SELLS, of Tennessee, to the
place vacated bv Col. COBB.
Mr. CORDfeLL is a native of Tennessee, and has long been a
trusted and valued official of the Pension Bureau. For several years
he has been engaged on field work as an inspector, and it was large!?
because of the splendid record he made as such that Representative
SELLS made him his "safety valve." Mr. CORDFTV lias lone been

Syndicate >
Mars roles strongly for good today,
according to astrology. Mercury la
mildly adverse.
During this configuration whatever
concerns war should be clarified in
the public mind. The planet that rules
armies is in a place held to be prom
ising to all who wield authority.
Preferment for an army officer who
may be much honored Id the next
few weeks is indicated.
There is a sign read as Indicating
some national policy that will be ben
eficial to the nation, but It will be se
verely criticised by the press.
Warning is again given that many
a grievance of the war may be exag
gerated. owing to the maleflc power
of the stars that affect the judgment,
swaying the emotions evilly.
Great growth of egotism and much
boastful ness may b* apparent among
a certain class of Americans, astrol
ogers prophesy, and they counsel
meekness and humility in which true
gratitude for national blessings is
mingled.
Mercury is tn an aspect read as
menacing to the public peace, since it
forecasts newspaper reports that are
disquieting and alarming regarding
affairs at home.
Jupiter in rising position afflicted by
the Sun at Washington is interpreted
to presage much discussion of waste
fulness and extravagance in the use
of public funds.
From this date on there may be a
great access of political interest and
bitter partisan outbursts. Women are
to become prominent in organising for
campaign work. Distinguished lead
ers will develop among them.
During the early spring the stars in
dicated agitation concerning home
owning and home-building the United
States. This was but the forerun
ner of a movement by which millions
of acres of land oomeg into the pos
session of farmers and workers.
Persons whose birthdate it is hava
the augury of a happy and progres
sive year. They may be too eager to
seek pleasure and company. Danger of
annoyances concerning family affairs
is foreshadowed.
Children born on this day are likely
to be active, artistic, energetic and
clever.
