M Can Only Be One Flag Says Frelinghuysen Newark, N. J., June 6.?"There can be no red flap; there can he no international flat? in America today. There can be only one flag:, the Star Spangled Banner." This was the vigorous declaration of United States Senator Frelinghuysen tpday at a jubilee celebration of the New ark Normal School. "There is a menace in this coun try," he added. "Some people are not satisfied with our form of gov ernment and would try to change it. After 140 years of prosperity under our form of government, we have the beat government on earth in my opinion."

Iowa avenue northwest, who ffradti ates rrom Central High. Miss Bennett has planned to enter foreign missionary work Immediately after graduating from college and to devote her life to carrying tha Ideals of Christianity to heathen lands. Thla la the way she tells her story: My Ambltlan. At the time of graduation ! from fcjgh school every girl has ! ambitions, and should have 1 definite plans formulated for the future. This time is the important stepping strfne of a girl's life. My ambition is to go through college, obtaining from college life all that it has to offer rre for the betterment of my mind and body. Then, if nothing pre vents, I will go as an embas sador of Christ to the foreign field. -If I may have my choice, that field will be South America, where the poor, ignorant In dians are waiting, waiting for the light of Christianity and civilization. I am studying Spanish now in order that no time will be lost in learning the language of the people. It is my desire to be a true Ameri can citizen and to represent American Christian life to the people with whom I will work. The slogan of this war was. "Help make the world safe for democracy." The world means "the uttermost parts of the earth," and these will not be ready for democracy until hea thenism and all that accompa nies it Is abolished and the re ligion of Jesus Christ Is estab lished in its place. I want to do my bit in "making the world a better place to live in." Before the time when I will be qualified to fulfill my am bition, I will try to do every day that which is most help ful to myself and others; to be sn all-around American girl. HIRAM JOHNSON SHIES "HAT INTO RING" AS CHIEF FOR G. 0. P. CONTINUED FROM PAGE ONE tendencies of this branch of t he party have been weakening. The "old-line" Republicans still have control of the party machinery, and are planning to nominate their own candidate for the Presidency. They will do their best to name a man ac ceptable to the Progressives, but will not allow the latter to name him. Some few weeks ago It was declared that Gen. Leonard Wood would be the logical Republican candidate, because he would have the full Progressive as wel as the old G. O. P. support. There has been no marked accession at Wood strength since the proposal was made, however, and it Is clear that the Progreaaives did not rise to it as the machine leaders counted on them doing. For months the Progressive and the liberal elements in the party have been Jockeying for position, with their eyes on the line-up of next year. Such men as Victor Murdock, Senators Lenroot, Johnson and La Follette have been seeking to find out Just what kind 4)t a platform the old-line leaders Intended to place before the people In next year's contest. Would Foree Wilson's Hand. latterly there has been an obvious effort to sidetrack all domestic and economic issues and to go before the people on an anti-league of nations platform?to force President Wilson to run for a third term, should the Senate refuse to ratify the peace treaty with the covenant Included in it. But the Progressives are not sat isfied with this, although most of them are opposing the covenant in its present form. The campaign of Senator Johnson will bring about a distinct cleavage In G. O. P. ranks before the present session of Congress is over, in the view of politicians. He is in a posi tion to absorb a good deal of strength. He will force all the other "second string" candidates, such as Harding of Ohio and Goodrich of Indiana, to get busy. It is evident that the Republicans are far from a Moses who will lead them out of the wilderness. CHARLES C. GLOVER, President. MILTON E. AXLES. Vice President. WILLIAM J. FLATHER. Vice President.

Republican leaders In the House yesterday issued a peremptory de mand upon all committee chairmen that appropriations mutt be cut to the bone. The party's promise to the public that the closest possible econ omy would be practiced must be kept, the chieftains declared. The decree Was decided upon at a meeting of the steering: committee with Speaker Qillett. Alarm was ex pressed at this conferenoe -over the tendency of the-committees handling appropriations to report out bills which failed at the last session with approximately the same amounts, and in some instances greater sums than originally provided. Army Gets First Cat. Chairman Kahn snd the Republican members of the Military Affairs Com mittee were called into the confer ence and told that the slashing must begin in the army bill. % Later in the day the necessity for economy was impressed upon Chair man Good, of the Appropriations Committee, and Chairman Butler, of thfc Naval Affairs Committer. Mr. Good was Instructed to ascer tain if It is n?e?wi7 to appropriate Immediately all of the $1,300 *00.000 asked by the Railroad Administra tion.

It was stated by members of the, committee lant night that the provi sion for personnel will allow the navy 300.000 men after July 1 and this num ber must be reduced as the warships now in transport service are released. By September 1 the number of men in the Navy should be reduced to 150.000. the committee will provide. The Marine Corps strength will be fixed at 17.400 in the regular establish ment and 10.000 additional in the tem portry force. May. Gen.
