In- recommending to Congress aa immediate increate in pay of from ?? to 40 per cent for District employ?s, the District Com missioners have recognized a condition to which The Washington Herald called attention less than a week affo. In commenting on the argent need for remedial legislation for all government workers in Washington, it said: "Should, however, Congress wish to remedy conditions at an early date there is ample material on hand. The Herald's daily articles on Uncle Sam's 'Sweatshop' have been informative enough to warrant action without delay. They have shown a deplorable situation and one which should have been corrected years ago." What applies to government employes in general applies* with equal or greater force to those connected with municipal depart ments. That they are grossly underpaid is well known. The 1400 grade teachers, for instance, would practically all come under the maximum raise of 40 per cent, as suggested by the Commis sioners, which means that they are .getting $1,000 or less. As showing the urgency for relief the Commissioners point out in their communications to the respective District Committee chair men that Congress should not wait on the report of the Joint Con gressional Reclassificatioa Commission, but "do it now." America still prefers to have her revolutions conducted at the ballot box despite Mr. Martens' views. Once every four years certain raen_find they are no match for those who make politics a business and not a pastime. The political writers are busy listing the Presidential possibili ties, though mapy voters prefer to call them impossibilities. The census man is forbidden to reveal the ages of those he enumerates, but the average woman takes little stock in promises. Today's League Referendum. Students and professors of the universities and colleges of the country, voting in distinct groups after hearing special arguments pro and con, will vote today their opinion as to what the President and the Senate would better do with the peace treaty and its inter woven covenant of the league of nations. Preparatory acts have made it certain that the ballots to be voted put the issue fairly be fore the electors; and the geographical range of the inquiry is so inclusive that the verdict can with truth be said to be national when registered. No details have been omitted to make the balloting^an accurate process, and jts outcome promptly known to the public. Whether the decision will influence cither the President or the Senate is a detail about which prophets might differ, and do. The President, in theory at least, might be supposed to be specially sensitive to academic opinion. Whether the rank and file of the Senators are, is debatable. There is this to be said, however, about the verdict, which ever way it turns, that it will, so far as the student poll goes, be the record of the men who are to be most influential in the society of tomorrow; and a very large percentage of the voters in this group have just come out of voluntary or compelled service in war. Moreover, thousands of them have seen Europe's debacle at first hand following strife which no theory of alliances or "balance of power" could prevent. These voters, presumably, are not going to be legalists or romanticists, as they make their ballots up. They are going to be realists, youthful realists, too, which is a quite un usual combination. The professors are far more likely to vote as they feel, than are the lads wno have been in the camps or across seas. So watch the student vote if you want a lead on coming contem porary politics, national and international. They have no illusions about their allies or their foes. One community probably watching "Senate? developments closely is Treaty, Ind. A real calamity would be Mexican outrages perpetrated faster than notes could be written. Ohio, with Senators Harding and Pomerene and Gov. Cox, is not suffering from a shortage in favorite sons. Some politicians never will appreciate the value of free speech until they start to charge for it in a national campaign. A Federal Department of Public Works. The convention now in session in the city of persons who a^guc from the normal expansion of the national business as well as from the experiences of the war, that it is time to create a department of public works, with its head a Cabinet member, is deserving of con sideration by the public and by lawmakers. The proposition is one that has the engineering profession back of it, and not a few of the high-grade business men whose war service showed them the waste and friction that come from perpetuation of the present unco-ordinatcd system. Public opinion favorable to the demand undoubtedly will grow as the bearing of the plan upon -reduced cost of administration is seen, for it has its practical and pecuniary as well as its incontrovertible theoretical claims on reason. Given such a department, for which expert administrators are more common than is the case with some other phases ot govern ment, thanks to the fine body of trained engineers and technicians available, and it would attract more rather than few men into the service, assuming that from the first fair remuneration was agreed upon and a status assured during good behavior and until incom petency was proved. Wonder if the clothing manufacturers have considered abolish ing one hip pocket after January 16. Boxing, according to all accounts, is an excellent exercise, but Mr. Dempsey does not follow it for his health, *_/_ When one reads of profiteering in pigs there is a temptation to believe the price gougers are buying and selling each other. The steel strikers lost $48,000,000 in wages and the regrettable part of it all is nobody derived any benefit from this huge sum. If somebody could arrange so that the coal, famine would come in the summer and the ice famine in the winter, almost everybody would be better satisfied. With th?^tirst meeting, of the league of nations council and the birth of prohibition in the U. S. A. almost everybody has good cause to remember Friday, January i?f loao. Bessie Ascougli, London fashion expert, declares the average woman does not care a snap what the men think about he?; clothes. The majority of American women then are different from the ?vence. NEW YORK CITY By 0. 0. MclT?TYFE New York. Jan. 11-Hasry Pllcer, a young Eaat Side hoy, who gained fame aa the dancing partner of Gaby Dealya, Is running the Apollo Cafe in Paris, and now that American jazs music Is further cementing French American ties his place Is becoming a rendezvous. It Is near the Mont martre district and Pllcer. who Is ap pearing In a French revue next door, run? in between acts to dance with American sightseers. Th? Apollo la trying to be a strictly Bohemian resort and with the horde? of Americana going to Part? now?in stead of New York?for an occasionai fling young Pllcer is becoming richer by several thousands every week. Once a week Gaby shows up at the Apollo and dances with Pllcer ana this proves a great drawing card. A negro crew of Jasaers from Birming ham furnishes the whiny, syncopated notes. A writing friend returns from Paris to tell me that he saw a comic opera atar, three writers,' two pugilist? and a novelist at tables In the Apollo, and the place bids fair to belike the place run by a Swiss publican named Pfaff in th? late forties. The restauran!, was near the od Broadway Central Hotel, and it was the lirat of the Bohemian colonies in Gotham. The chief attraction aside from the brilliance of the guests were pancakes and beer and it was at Pfaffe that Georges Clemenceau visited often when he came to America long before he ever dreamed of world power. Among the other natrons were Will lam Wintef, foremost theatrical critic: K. C. Btedman, the poet, and James O'Brien, a gifted young Irish writer. Too, there was Artemus Ward, who found congenial company at If alt's. Just as Pfaff came to America and founded a strictly Bohemian resort, so it Is reported' Pilcer is doing In Paris. Pllcer Id a product of Broadway and his manner and dress are typical of .the street. He had the gayest shirts and the loudest shrlekincr scarves along the thoroughfare. It is told that. In his most startling checkered suit and haberdashed to vie with the rain bow, Pilcer stood one day looking at the Grand Canyon. A moving picture actor on his way West was going ?long with a guide when they came upon Pllcer. "What do you think of the scenery?" asked the guide with a wide sweep of his hand. The molle actor, unable to move on account of his fascination for Piloer"? clothes, replied: "Snappiest scenery I ever saw off Broadway." Since nearly everc saloonkeeper on the East Side has decided that it is no use to han?; on jiny longer to such frail hopes only a WH remain open. The big problem of the welfare work ers Is to provide pome place for the men who played a game of cards or chess and drank a glass of beer in the hack room of a saloon. Many of them, it Is said, were steady workers who never indulged and had no other place to spend Idle moments. Some have drifted Into the dark underground holes run by bootlcgKers and have ta ken to moonshine whisky. ? noted social wofk.-r in an address the ottv-r night declared that now that prohibi tion was Incornine an actual conditioti it was up to Kew Xork to provide places of recreation or poor men's clubs for those diiven from saloons. New York grammarian* are all fussed up oyer the correctness of this sentence: "Alfred, than whom a great er King never reisned, deserves to be held up as a model to all future sov ereigns." Grammar sharks say "whom" Is wronp. It should be "who" and others state for sake of eupliony it should be "whom." Others, too, say "whom" is correct. I think grammar depends upon turroundings. 1 know a man who broke up a pool pme say ing. "Whom do 1 follow?" He was too gosh-a^vful educated for pool. r, ^ SUCH IS LIFE As It Is Seen ' By O. B. JOYFUL And Abe White, of Fayette. Iowa, has an alligator that'fl umile! But Abe's aMigutor won't smile un less he 'the alligator, .not Abe) U tickled under the chin. Which is probably the only way linybody can make any alligator grin. Try it on the next 'gator you meet. While on the 'gator subject it may be aa well to cnll your attention to the neat and nifty way alligators have solved the hip/h cost of living problem. Mister Alligator quits eating in September, according *to Abe White, and doesn't seem io feel the, need of grub until June. During" the months alligators eat food prices are lowest. When the old food profiteer boosts costs of things, Mr. Alligator <|uits feeding. Quite a simple method of knocking the high out ?>f the r<>st of living, isn't It? There's only one flaw in the theory above set forth. Nobody eould get stoop-shouldered carrying "home his own pay envelope. Somebody else would be taking it away from htm before he had gone very far. Outside of that it looks pretty good. "Mit^h," asked a friend, "keeping busy these days?" "Busy." observed the atty. gen., "why, every time I take the club off one profiteer to swipe another, a third bobs up. I don't bcliejrc a million cooties could kecp^me moving any faster."

To .date only two figures in the Presidential limelight are declared to look like Kerne heroic figure of the past, but they are extremely nu merous among the lesser lights. Gen. Wood is said to have many of the characteristics of the late Col. Roose velt and to remind one very forcibly of him. and Smator Harding ia com pared, by his friends, to McKinley. Somebody said, long ?a?, that Sen ator .Sherman, of Illinois, looked like Abraham Lincoln, and the Senator J never has denied the accusation, but ' a? he is not mentioned for the Pres idency just now, the comparison is not so important a.? it whs four ago when some folks thought the Sen- j ator had a righting chance for the nomination. The folk? who are said to resemble I Roosevelt prob.ibly outnumber all of the rest, and *>ome of th?*m r*a!ly do make one think of the colonel until they rMMCSM to speak. There Is a physkian in Km Yo**k. for in stance, who is th?- dead split of the late Kou*_h Rider, ?nd it can be counted as n certainty that he will be at the national conventions.

It really is a tough Job for them to hold their place? in line, however, because the ordinary citiren eannot take on weight and ' take off hair as fast aa the Great > Commoner without resorting to un- I usual expediencies. Perhaps the tr.ddest story in con nection with this man-who-looks-llke movement wa? brought hire the other il.-iy by a Chicago politician.
