Our antagonist is oar helper. Burke. Limitation for Armament The house of the legislature yesterday adopted memorial to the president and the congress ursine an understanding with the principal nations of the world for a reduction of armaments. This action la in consonance with & growing sentiment throughout the nation in favor of making this outward sign of friendliness and of removing the suspicion which the nations naturally entertain of ono another when they are making feverish preparations for war. Until after tho great war thoso who did not be lieve that wars were at an end deplored the blindness of thoso who opposed preparedness by this coun try. Eut now we have -come upon different times. There is none of the great nations which desires to engage in war and the United States Is the only ono which could afford a war. The same sentiment that moved tho house to the adoption cf the memorial is already finding expression in the national legis lature. On Monday congress voted to iimit the land forces of the United States to 170,000. Whether that was a wise tiling to do there will be a difference of opinion. But at present it seems a safe thing. The world war left the country in such a shape that in an unexpected emergency we could quickly assemble iv larger army If needed. , mere seems to bo a determined effort to bring .tbout an international agreement for the reduction if armaments. Whether tho land forces of such countries as France and Toland can bo reduced so 'long as Germany continues to resist the terms of the Versailles treaty and Bolshevik Russia threatens its neighbors, is very uncertain but the three great naval bowers can at least discuss the problem of reducing i heir building programs and if their leaders show high statesmanship great good ought to result. Tho Issue, however, is not a simple one. The United States today is better situated than either of Its maritime rivals to build a superior fleet. On this "point Great Britain end Japan will be seeking favors nf us and not we of them. Great Britain Is desper utcly anxious to reduce expenditures in order to pay off her war debt and have something left for domes tic improvements. Japan is still a poor country and in cippnsi; oi 9jv,iuu,vuu Dauiesmps is somcming grievous. It is true that we are harassed by exces sive taxation and kindred ills but they are slight omparcd with the troubles of our contemporaries. It we must build a great navy we can do so. ' Offsetting this is a whole complex of non-military problems outstanding between America and Great Eritaln and America and Japan and these problems must be settled honeatly before we can face our fu ture with either country with perfect comfort. "With Japan these problems range from the Cali fornia labor question down to the title of the island of Yapimd then to a very direct national interest that Japan shall not divert the money saved from a possi ble naval program to push schemes for land aggres sion against China, or designs In Siberia, creating a Ear Eastern question likely to threaten the peaco of tho entire world. With Great Britain, if a war is absolutely Im possible, a lack of cordiality which will destroy hope of international co-operation by tho great English ypeakln.tr peoplo Is by no means o impossible. Americans feel today that they aro not being treated quite squarely in the matter of tho Mesopo tamian oil lands of which Great Britain would not have had the disposal if we ad not assisted In tho winning of tho war. Mr.-Harding seems disposed to re-open the question of 1'anama canal tolls which It seems pretty clear, in 1913 became involved with tho possibility that Great Britain might give cconomio aid to Japan in case wo rejected tho British con struction of the car.al treaty. We also bellevo that tho British have been discriminating against our merchant marine and altogether there are many things that will nerd adjustment in our relations with both of our maritime rivals. i But there is nothing in all this incapable of ' friendly adjustment when we approach it in the right .way with our hands open in front of us and rot ap parently reaching for a concealed weapon. There are two things which will help the world i keep out of war. One is to reduce armaments. The j other is to adjust the specific quarrels which give rise to even the thought that such armaments may provo ; needful. Our relations with France are most friendly as a great French statesman only last Monday pointed ( lit. for whatever the size of the French army, at no point do the two great republics have a serious clash of interests. Exaggerated Nonsense Tilings are not in this world at the present time Just as they would be if we had the ordering of them but there is no reason in making them worse by exag geration. We have the story of a farmer who toolc a 09-pound cowhide to town to sell, with the pro ceeds of which he intended to buy bis daughter a pair of shoes. He sold the hide for $1.77 and found th:u tin: beht lie could do in outfitting his daughter with a pair of shoes was $15. It would have taken i lie hides of nearly a carload of cows to apparel the girl us to her feet, according to the style to which she desired to become accustomed. There are several things about the story that condemn it on the face of it. in tho first place there i ; i.o town in the country where a p.ilr of shoes for :i g.ii cannot be bought for p-ss than half of $15. in tb next p'.aeo a pirl who would itioist on a pair f $13 ho's would insist more strenuo'Jly on pick- ing them out herself. in this case she would have gone along and have seen that they fit her. Moreover her father would have insisted that she go along; he would not want to bear the sole responsibility for such an act of folly. He would, have demanded a particeps criminis. Your Vocabulary? There have been different estimates placed on the number of words in the English language. Eut 000,000 is generally accepted as a fair estimate. Of these 300,000 not more than 10 per cent are in everyday practical use. Milton, who wrote "Para dise Lost" had a vocabulary of not more than 7500 words. Shakespeare, who wrote and wrote and wrote, had command of 15,600 words. Eut they were exceptional men. The highly cul tured man or woman of this day rarely have a vocab ulary exceeding 5000 words. And very seldom, it is said, will be found a person In the ordinary walks of life who is able to use more than two or three thous ands of tho 300,000 words In the language. On the other hand there are people who are of such a type that they are limited conversationally to the use of no more than 300 words. Where do you rank? Arc you up there with Shakespeare? Do you fall in the 5000 class? Or are you Just one of the "ordinary folks" with a talking asset of between 2000 and 2000 words? IN ONE EASY LESSON The Things That Count By Herbert Johnson Why not call them Income tax blankety blanks? At soon as a man buys an automobile h thinks a pedestrian is some kind of a nut. A new book la entitled "Bolshevism at Work." There ain't no euch animal. The new century is a fifth gone but most of us had better make the best of it. "Everything's cheaper, even life," Bays the phil osopher as he peruses the day's list Of hold-ups. If the three aeronauts had foreseen the quizzing they got from newspaper correspondents they would have stayed at Moose Factory. The housing shortage was further increased dur ing December by burning tens of thousands of dwell ings. During the month unusually neavy totai os $41,197,600 fire losses were recorded in the United States and Canada, This brought the year's bonfire up to the enormous total of $330,853,925. Most of theso fires might have been prevented, insurance officials assert. Why weren't they? Carelessness, thougnt- lessness, heedlessness! Rather expensive vices, aren't they? It is up to congress to declare the public a party in Interest to a lot of things. Many of the New Tear's resolutions have been disappointing in the matter of mileage. Mrs. Teete, the Loa Angeles woman charged with murder, is another fine illustration of the folly of talking, sometimes, without consulting a lawyer. WHY BE DISCOURAGED? Fred Douglas didn't even own his own body. . Before his birth he had been pledged to pay his master's debts. But in the dead of night he stole i.way from the plantation where he was a Blave, walked fifteen miles to be with his mothe, loss than an hour, and returned in time to' go Into the fields at dawn. With her help he mastered the alphabet from a patent medicine almanac and then learned to read. Amid great hardships he managed to save up $1000 and with this purchased his freedom. At 28 he was made marshal of. the District of Columbia, the first colored man in the United States to hold such a position. Henry E. Dixie, the actor, started life as an obscure man and was paid $5 a month "and keep." His first "job" on the stage consisted of Impersonat ing the hind legs of a cow. P. T. Barnum, who later owned the largest and most prosperous circus on earth, began his career in that same circus as a water-tender at ten cents a day. And out of the ten cents ho bought his meager food. When he was asked why he worked bo hard to repair a magistrate's bench, and why he took so much delight In doing the work well, a young car penter replied: "First, because what Is worth doing at all is worth doing well, and secondly because I wish to make It easy against the time when I come to sit upon It myself.' Five years later the same carpenter was hailed as Lord Robert Eleton, under magistrate of London, and became famous through a decision he rendered in the Coster uprising of East End. Darwin suffered continued ill health. "For forty years," says his son, "father never knew ono day of real health. Yet during that time he compiled a literary work that has made his name famous throughout tho world "Origin of Species." COLORS AFFECT HEALTH It Is no longer a theory, but a proven fact, that certain colors produce certain desirable or extremely disastrous effects, even upon tho ordinarily sensitive mind. Psychologists, eminent physicians, and skilled decorators are making a keen study of this subject, and each year discloses some new and valuable truth. For a long time we have known that blue and violet were employed successfully in treating nervous cases; and so soothing indeed is blue that, when used in a wholo room scheme walls, curtains rugs it acts as a partial anesthesia upon extremely sensitive natures, sufficient for dental purposes or the carrying out of minor operations.) Red develops the action of the muscles as much as 50 per cent and is often employed in the medicinal world where stimulating results are desired, as in tho treatment of smallpox, melancholia and certain forms of anemia. Red. therefore, is not a good color to choose when decorating the room of a "teenage" child, for, aside from its hot and heavy suggestion in sum mer, it overstlmulates the already restless nature of the growing boy or girl. Good Housekeeping. THEY HAVEN'T CHANGED Nearly a thousand years ago a Japanese princess whose name is lost wrote her thughts in what now is known as "The Sarashina Diary." "I dwelt in the romances from morning to night, and as long as I was awake," she wrote. "The only tiling I could think of was the shining prince who would some day come to me, as noble and beautiful as in the romances." Eternal maiden dream! Ideas and manners change greatly. But the es sentials of human nature change little. The dreams girls dream are much the same today in America as theey were long ago in the courts of old Japan. Doubtless it was the same in 100 A. D. and doubt less it will be much the same in 2000 A. D. Consider the idealized men they dream of as true lovers, and look at what they get More than one thousand children were added to public schools in Washington, when congress returned for session recently. The increase was made by children of congressional representatives, their secre taries and other employes.. v H 4- - 'J 1 .' , , I 5 H'M-0Y$OIV I'll.

In 1865 he surrendered to General Grant and later the same year became president of Washington College at Lexington, Virginia, now Washington and Lee University. In 1870 his health began to fail and he died within a few months. He is regarded as the greatest of the southern commanders obert E. Lee, his grandson, fought with the Thirty-third division of the United States army during the World war. He became a lieutenant and was cited for the Croix de Guere after being wounded in France when his company captured a machine gun. He returned to the United States and was made Instructor at Camp Grant. rromotion to captaincy followed. In July, 1919, he married in Washington. Si JL ... mf JL tion.

The trial of Pablo Chavez on the charze of at tempting to murder Denutv Sheriff est Cates of Casa Grande, has been laid over until the last of this week. due to the inability of Cates to appear against him. Chavez is one of the three men wanted in Yuma for rob bery. The three were placed under arrest a week ago last Friday by Dep uty cates ana County Ranger J. T. Miles, but by a ruse the sheriff was led away from the rest of the party by Chavez and shot twice, one a glanc ing shot in the left side and one in the left leg just below the knee. It is claimed that Chavez confessed to the attempt to murder while still in Casa Grande but since being brought to the county Jail here he has made no state ment. The trial would have been held this week upon the return of Judge O. J. Raughn from Phoenix but the con dition of Cates, thoujth ' Improved, would not permit him to make the trip to appear against his assailant. The date of the trial has not been defi nitely set but there is a public de mand for hasty action.

He allows that as soon as Willie grows up a little, and buys a pair of pants that fit him, he will be boosted into a desk chair. He says that Willie has manifested capacity to do a most uncommon thing. 'He thinks," said the boss, "with both lobes at once. I haven't seen another office boy like him since the Second Eattle of Bull Run." Here's what it's all about. The boss thought there was a lot of loose motion about the office, and sent for an efficiency expert. The efficiency expert made motions, took a lot of measurements, made the clerks very un happy, and finally handed in a verdict. "All the telegraph and telephone wires must be moved," said he. "They are wrongly placed. In a year's time the men in this office lose precisely 718 days and two hours in getting to and from the wires. The office boys waste two-thirds of their time in carrying messages from wire to desk." The boss saw at once that he was right. So did the chief clerk. So did the cashier, auditor, bead bookkeeper and office manager. The wires were moved at a net cost of $189. Then Little Willie, the brigadier of the kids, learned what had been done and why. "Chee," said Willie. "Why didn't you move d' desks?" Xo one lias been able to answer this apparently simple question. Dut it looks as though Willie is like tie elevator man going up. I think I hate hotels because I particularly hate to be classified. I dont want to be labeled, pigeon-holed and shelved. I want to be Me; not an It. . I cling to my humanity, my life, my individuality as my most preciouh possession. . Of course, in tho opinion of my able and lively enemies, It is not mucn, but it is mine own, and all I have. I claim my right to be a Proper Noun, as John, Mary. Charles, and not a Common Noun as Horse, Man, Gump. 1 When I go to a hotel, Bay, the American House at Three Oaks, Iowa, I put my name on the hotel register, and that's the last of me. Exit my everlasting soul and fascinating personality, for the time being. Henceforth I am the Party in No. 1G. Angels and ministers of grace defend us! how I loathe that word "Party." I mean as referring to me, not to a dznee fest. If I want a drink, the clerk says ''Front!" (You see, even the poor devil of a bell boy is not allowed a Christian cognomen, he's but unother cog in tha merciless wheel.) "Take ice water up to party in sixteen." Sometimes the desk clerk Struggles to be human, to burst from the Port- land cement of his official impersonality, but it is in vain. He strives to give me a name, saying, "It's a nice day today, Mr. Green." or "Number 24 was a little late, hey, Mr. Cohen?" or "Staying a few days, Mr. Graham?" till I'm not quite certain myself what my name is, if any. When I go into the dining room the head waiter holds up his finger, and I follow it over to a table in the darkest corner of the room, not withstanding I want to sit by the window and near the pretty girl.

Then the red-headed waitress comes along and plunks the butter platelet and glasses and cutlery down before me, precisely as she has done beforo thousands of others since the foundation of tho world and will go on doing until the last trump. She says her piece, looking out of the window or over at the commercial travelers at hhe next table. "Soup fish hamanegs livern bacon codfishcakes hot rolls wheatcakes and maple surrup." I indicate. And presently my plate is surrounded by little rowboats, each containing a dab of ill-cooked alleged food. It was not prepared for a human being. It was manufactured for a party. It is the same way in a store. Then I am a customer. - At the theater 1 am one of the Audience. I am part of the House. On the train I am a Passenger.
