What the Congress Has Don - Our Democratic friends have been so persistent In belittling; the work of congress that many people w ho have only casually viewed the , work of that body wlthm the five months In which It was in ses ion may Ifave come to believe that It was lacking In achievement. This was the more likely because cf the prevalence of conditions In which a. Demo cratic administration left the country and out of which some of us believed that the Republican party ought to extricate us immediately by some sort of a ' miracle. ' , . We have previously pointed out the' necessity which confronted the Republican administration on March 4 this year of an unprecedented volume of below surface work, the removal of an appalling amount of debris, and the laying deep of new founda tions, before we could see much of the superstructure rising. Tet the Republican congress In spite of all this has given us a great deal of emergency legislation. By emergency legislation we do not mean temporary legislation, but legislation to meet Immediately our most Imminent needs. Under this head comes the Hoover-Meyer sub stitute measure through which on Wednesday there was allotted .by the war finance board $1,20Q,000 to the cotton growers of Arizona to assist them In the handling of 'their crops. There Is something con crete in that, something that must offset the news paper and street corner declarations" that the Repub lican congress is fooling away its time, - The- money which is coming to the harassed cottpn growers .talks, talks louder than the critics of the administration. Another great industry of Arizona has been given the attention of the Republican congress in the bill passed for the regulation and control' of "the1 packing industry, for the enforcement of which the president has asked and will receive $240,000,000. Numerous measures have been passed to afford relief from business conditions. Among these is the agricultural credits act extending the powers of the War Finance Corporation, through which we are to receive the allotment which has been made, and which makes it -possible for the corporation to utilize as much as a billion dollars in providing credit for agricultural purposes and to aid in the exportation of agricultural products. For the purpose of facili tating our general export law the Edge act has been amended. There, too, is the law by which are consolidated the various overlapping and sometimes hopelessly conflicting agencies for the relief of ex-service men who for months and months had clamored in vain for relief. Under the Veterans' Bureau act that law is now functioning. And then there is the budget bill whose opera tions under the direction of General Dawes we are daily witnessnig, and which will remove an annual' burden of millions of dollars from the taxpayers. These are only a few of the measures for imme diate relief which the congress at the request of the president in his first message, has already enacted, the while It has been preparing the great frame work of the two revenue measures upon which the business of the country may permanently rest. In all this there has been no legislation for any special class or for any section of the country, as there was in the first six years of the Democratic administration. We have within five months had legislation where legislation was the most urgently needed, regardless of class or section. The achievements of the congress in this brief time fully warrant the summing up by Leader Mon dell of the house of representatives on the eve of the congressional recess three weeks ago: i v It can be said without the slightest exag geration and without fear of successful con tradiction that no congress in American histo ry has made a better record of continuous and ; conscientious consideration of the public business, or of meritorious accomplishment in a wide field of legislation, than the present congress. ' gpeaking particularly from the standpoint of the house, not only does the record of this session compare favorably with that of any other session, but after a careful review of the congress for a quarter of a century, dur- Jng which I have been a member of it, and of the congresses before my time, I feel fully justified in saying that in no congress in American history has the house of represen tatives considered and passed upon, in the same length of time, so many important, far reaching and vital problems of legislation as in the portion of this session which is now passing into history. This is not a partisan view of the accomplish ments of the congress. The Republican Is not parti san. It is not bound to tbe acts of Republican congresses and administrations. It has not hesitated to criticize as severely, though more reasonably than some Democrats have done, the' tariff bill in its present form, and it will continue to criticize that work of a Republican house ot representatives so long as It stands in its present form. But we are hopeful that in Its finished form it will be essentially thanged. We are speaking only of what has be n done by the congress and has gone unalterably into the record. It was the spirit of American people which tad con tributed to the winning of the war. Labor did its part, so did the Methodists and the Presbyterians and the black-haired people and the light-haired people. So did the farmers, to say noth ing of the boys In the trenches. So did everybody but the slackers. It is no discredit to labor but It is a fact worth mentioning that while labor was helping to win the war that It was receiving such wages as had never before been paid It, while the boys in the trenches were getting $30 a month. Many a laboring man at home was paid that much for an eight-hour day. And it is also to be mentioned, and not to the discredit of labor generally, that it was sometimes not an easy matter to keep all of labor at work winning the war especially in the shipyards where there was insistence on working rules, where men were cautioned against doing too much in eight hours toward the winning of the war. While on this side the winning of the war was a proftiable and not a particularly unpleasant job, on the other side there 'was no profit, much discomfort 'and some peril. We think that the credit for winning the war should go largely to the men who were doing the' actual fighting, the Americans, the. French, the Brit, ish, the Italians, to their families at home who endured privation and grief. As for the rest of us who re mained at home, our part in winning the war, how ever great it might have been in the aggregate, in . volved so little sacrifice, so little discomfort, that we cannot with very good grace claim any credit for It as individuals or members of a class. We regret that General Pershing allowed him self to be annoyed by Mr. Gompers' reiterations into making a reply, sensible as it was. It lent a dignity to a discussion which is really not a discussion at, alL What Every Husband Knows By Herbert Johnson ' Speaking Behind One's Back This seems an appropriate time to say some thing in these columns about a man behind his back something about Mr. Dwight B. Heard, the principal owner of The Republican. We embrace this oppor tunity because Mr. Heard will shortly return after an absence of "nearly four months and then the, oppor tunity to speak of him editorially would have passed. On his return we expect that some recriminatory words from him on this, subject will be Inevitable, but we will have had our say. ; His name for-the first time will have been given a place In the editorial columns of The Republican in the ten years since he took control of the paper. The occasion we embrace is the allotment by the War Finance Corporation of $1,200,000 to the credit of the growers of long staple cotton, in whose behalf Mr. Heardwho happened to be in Washington when the act extending that power to the corporation was passed, made immediate application, the first that was made. A week ago on his way home, at the request of a Phoenix cotton association he hastened back to Washington, to make sure of the allotment which was announced on Wednesday of this week. Mr. Heard left Phoenix about June 1, with his family, ori his vacation which was to be spent in Europe. He had long looked forward to it and planned for it." It was to be by no means an Idle, sight-seeing tour. Much more thought, we happen to know, was given by him to possible accomplish ments for the long staple cotton growing industry of the southwest than to the pleasures which usually attract the tourist and vacationist. A more Important objective to him than any other ' was the second World's Cotton Conference to be held at Liverpool and Manchester, beginning a few days after his arrival. As a member of the producers" committee, appointed at the first conference, he was intensely Interested in the deliberations abroad. His work thre was recognized by the appointment of him as a member of the executive committee of the con ference. ' That though was to be only a part of what he ' expected to accomplish abroad for the long staple cotton of the southwest In visits to the chief spin ning centers he desired to acquaint spinners with the superior qualities of our cotton. This program, we believe, was interrupted. Before Mr. Heard had com pleted his tour he was recalled, three weeks before his intended sailing, by cablegrams from a local cot ton association and by Senator Ashurst, to Washing ton to assist in. the fight being made there. to put cotton on the protected list from which it had been excluded by the house. ' s We understand that the services of Mr, Heard have been very helpful. We understand this only from members of the association and representatives of the cotton industry who have labored with him in Washington. We have had no word from Mr. Heard as to anything he has done at Washthgton, and only brief incidental mention in short letters as to his activities abroad. We are not unmindful of the great work that has been done in congress and outside it for these measures for Arizona by our official representatives. Senators Cameron and Ashurst and Representative Hayden; nor are we forgetful of the services of other Arizonians who have been at Washington throughout the struggle. There is credit enough for alii and all have earned it by loyal service. The Republican has previously and often recognized the usefulness and loyalty of these gentlemen and others who have labored at home to these ends. We can tell an optimist by the absence of spare tires attached to his automobile. We see they are talking of making Christy park , an automobile encampment. Until we get Cave Creek headed off, if we ever do, it will be a better parking place for hydroaeroplanes. Secretary Hughes' protest against "disarmament conference" as the name for the forthcoming con ference,, is made we suppose only to keep the record straight. "Disarmament conference," however inap propriate, is about the briefest expression we could devise. It was stated more than a week fego that the Philadelphia mint had reached the greatest produc tion in its history. We have perceived no visible signs of it, and certainly time enough has elapsed for the flood -to spread this far. Winners of the War The conflict between General Pershing and Mr. Gompers as to "who won the war," must be a fruit less one. It was precipitated by Mr. Gompers even before the dinner of La Fayette-Marne day. He had previously and often put labor into a conspicuous 1,;ace among the winners of the war, notwithstanding AS TO LUCK "Do you think Friday is unlucky?" "Xo, I was born on a Friday."

Rare is the young woman who Is pictured in the newspapers these days with both feet on the ground and her hands in her lap. A glance at the old family album will show that the girls were con sidered properly posed in the old days when they were sitting in a rocker with their knitting, standing near the grape arbor with a cat, or leaning against the piano lessons in the front parlor. And they were as a rule fully dressed, including necks and ankles. Today she Isn't considered worth the passing attention of a regular union photographer unless she has both feet at least ten feet off the earth, her general pose being that of a wild Bulgarian pinwheel in pursuit of a hysterical mate. Of course a girl still can get her picture in the papers by the standard system of shooting a husband or running away with one, but the one surefire way to stampede the pho tographer is to don a white suit, grab a racquet, and practice tying herself in a sailor's knot while trying for a new altitude record from a standing start. At least oone leg should be wound around the neck. ABOUT TE3E STATE NOT YET Mother Those little playmates of yours look rather common, Bobbie. I hope none of them swear.

Montes repeatedly affirmed that he acted under Smith's orders in all matters. It is charged that Montes would not give the men their checks, but endorsed them with an X and gave them cash, after deducting moneys he had lent various employes. One employe, L. Telles, testified Tuesday afternoon that he has been working fcthe city two months and has never seen his check, and that he can write his name. Citizen.

One can get the same exercise flyswatting as playing tennis, but the managing editors don't consider the pictures as thrilling. $ The country is becoming quit tennis mad. All the "athuletic gurls" are doing It, and the first question one asks in inquiring about a young woman today is, "How far can sha Jump?" If she can't leap 15 feet in the presence of a photographer sha is excluded from the worth-while-set. The newspaper photographers hunt women tennis stars the wp? . hunters hunt quail. They stroll out into the country watching for tha "rise." The moment they behold a white figure in full flight, they shoot with deadly accuracy, seldom missing a garter Then it becomes a race to the newspaper office, where the manag ing editor looks over the wet printa and finally calls a staff conference to decide which way the pictures should be printed to show that tha ladies were right side up when "snapped."

"There are champions and champions." The prize ring, the athletic field, the turf, the tennis court and the baseball diamond have their champions, and even among the pie eaters and the consumers of near beer there are those who have merit ed the designation. The champion ship horseshoe pitching contest hasi) been held recently, and connoisseurs of fashions are looking for the bare knee champion. There are, . therefore, champions and champions. They litter up the pictorial sections; they fill the sport pages, and once in a while they get a place even on the front page. We are used to them but we are not used to a variety news of which has just come from France. That this cham pion is a woman is to be expected not from any consideration of her title, but from the mere fact that feminine champions are becoming quite the thing. The new champion is Mme. Val lombrosa, wife of a Parisian who is now making his bid for fame as his wife's husband. M. Val lombrosa is suing for divorce, and in this does the matter of the championship appear, for he has named 43 separate and distinct co-respondent, and until time of going to press Mme. v allombrosa has not denied the soft impeachment. Forty-three co-respondents, with perhaps more to be named as the case progresses! Surely this is record, and the laurels are gone for ever from the ws of Lillian Rus sell and De Wolf Hopper and Nat Goodwin, who have bid fair to hanq up records that would last until a modification of the divorce laws. How M. Vallombrosa has been able to keep an accurate record of the 43 who may achieve a permanent niche' in history as the "famous 43" we are not informed. We may be lieve, however, from the premises that M. Vallombrosa is a man of slow thought processes, for we know thousand American husbands who have become exceedingly active after discovery Just one co-respondent, and we know of none who has not hit the ceiling after discovering the first dozen or two. But if we are not in formed as to the manner in which the husband kept count of thom. neither are we informed concerning the wifea' method of accounting. Did she have a social secretary? And did she always keep her dates unmixed? Did the gentlemen in the case bid for her friendship en masse, or did they follow one another in the orthodox American way? These, and a hun dred like speculations, intrigue the inquirer, who finds his curiosity in creasing as his surmises take added number. Were they all blondes, or arl brunettes, or did the lady have varying fancy? Terhaps we shall never know, but, thank heavens, no one can take from us our privilege of guessing. On thing Is certain, at least to Te Editor of The Camelback. Mme. Val lombrosa is a champion of the first water. She has won the rubber toothpick and the furlined dinner set. She has set a mark for the ambitious wives of the world to shoot at, and she may be certain it will be un touched for quite a little time. To M. Vallombrosa go our sympa thies, and, in some measure, our con gratulations. He has made his mark, and he has set a warning that was needed. All of us may hare wives. Only one or two may have a cham pion. And perhaps the aggrieved husband in this case may recall, per haps with a shudder, the beautiful ditty we used to know about "the leaves of Vallombrosa." celebrated for their beauty but much more so for their number. And they never have ALL been counted! o . AH, WE THOUGHT SO! The following Is clipped from a Nogales paper of Monday, Sept.
