TREET PLAYfJROUNDS POR SCHOOLS Clbsing of street", in the vicinity of schools during recess periods so that children may use them for play grounds is a step in tho right direc tion. Dozens of schools 'in Wash ington have practically no play grounds and the children must use the streets or forego play. Such closing of streets will entail no great hardship to drivers of vehicles, es pecially after they become familiar with the locations of the blocked off areas, and it will be a great boon to the children. The next move should be that anggestcd by Superintendent Thurs ton during a discussion of traffic conditions for The Times. The auperintendent would have the chil dren of every school protected by signs warning motorists of the proximity of a school building. These signs would create a series of "safe ty zones" similar to the "quiet tones" now established in the vicinity of hospitals. Every year the problem of the au tomobilo becomes a more acute one, and likewise tho problem of afford ing play space for children increasos. Tho plan which the police and school heads aro working out together is fair to both interests and, aside from its safety first features, should appeal to parent of children and automobile drivers alike. THE LAST WORD TO OREICE Greece may not yet have received from the allies a flat ultimatum to fulfill her treaty obligations to Serbia or to dcmdbilizc her armies at once, but with a virtual blockade of her coast nlready begun that choice could be only a question of a few hours. Bulgaria cunningly palavered and falsely promised, the entente taking too much for granted, until the 1 Austro-Germans were near enough for King Ferdinand to bolt into their train as a camp follower. That x ought to be lesson enough. Late dispatches are that the Brit ish at last have advanced troops into Monastir, where they may be of help to the retreating Serbians. But more than ever tho Signs point to tho hurling by the Teutonic war mnchinc of that fiercely brave little people across the Greek line, crushed and exhausted. The only refuge for them is Saloniki, where, under cover of British, French, and Italian fleets, the Serbians may be able to make a final stand with the allies, as the Belgians and the British have done in Flanders for more than a year. Either Greece can willingly do that much of her duty for the Ser bians at bay or the allies must com pel her to permit others to perform her duty for her. After their experience with tho treachery of Bulgaria the allies would be worse than trusting fools, they would themselves be recreant to their obligations to Serbia, if they gain sat twiddling their thumbs until Greece had given the death stroke to Serbia sinking at her feet. Balkan good faith will best be pre served, if there is any way to pre serve it, not with swords asleep in their scabbards, but with the blades drawn at tho throats of traitors. OERMANY' SUPPLIES FROM US It has pleased some folk here as well as abroad to dispute that the figures of our many times multiplied exports to Holland and the Scandi navian countries since the war weie sufficient proof that these enor mously increased shipments ever reached or were intended for Ger many. They have contended that those countries vtere merely getting from our markets for themselves supplies which because of the war they could no longer obtuin from other sources. Perhaps1 they will undertake to explain away the extraordinary course of Scandi navian exchange. All countries which have been buying for themselves very much more from us than be'foie nnd sell ing us less have not been able to maintain a parity of exchange heir. They have not been able to do so, though they sent us gold, sold us securities, ami placed loans here. Not so with the Scandinavian countries. They have never1 been seriously tiouhlod over their cx chango situation with us. Reully, though our oxoprts to Norway and Sweden for the first three-quarters of this calendar year increased seven times over what they were in the corresponding period of 1!U, ex change has actually been strongly in their favor. ' The truth is, of course, thai their swollqn buying was not for them selves but for Germany. Thoy did not have to pay us; it was Germany. tiMdiuny has been notoriously a seller of American securities in this market, tor months she sold so persistently arid heavily our stocks , and bonds that hnd been favorite investments with her people that on ! our rising stock market they lagged far behind other issues, and still do. Not a bit of tho proceeds were going' hflpk TO HprmflriV ftl .Trtl.l Wj. ..nt.t f " -" . ,,.. .J fu.l.. ,, K .Wld. k sending out gold there or anywhere else. We were taking in gold by the hundreds of millions. The Scandinavian counlries were buying supplies here and delivering them in Germany. Germany was selling American securities here and using the money to pay for our ex ports to Norway, Sweden and Den mnrk. v There may be some room for ar gument as to whether our commerce with the Scandinavian countries ought to be shut out from them by the blockade of the allies, whether1 it is for home consumption or for re-export. There is nd room at all for argument as to where the differ ence in that trade $80,300,000 in nine months of this year as against 513,700,000 last year has been go ing. It has been going to Germany. THE FREDERICKSBURG ROAD If the town of Washington were a self-governing, homo-regulated com munity, The Times would propose and earnestly support a plan to have Washington pay directly, out of public revenues, a good share of the cost of building a modern pike from here to Fredericksburg, Vu. It would do so on the ground that Washington could well afford to in vest a large sum In building a road that would mean, within the next few years, tho development of a large section of country tributary to this city and from which, once properly developed, nccessurics of life would be brought here in vast cyunntitic.-.. It wouW mean more business for the city, and reduced living costs for its people. The time has passed when it is necessary to nrguc that good modern roads insure development of the tributary country. The case has. been proved. Nobody has succeeded in making the complete analysis of the factors that enter into the situation. Good roads bring better farmers, farming, schools, social conditions; more population, more willingness to remain on the farm; they increase production and decrease very great ly the expense of production. In many Western cities and towns it is now recognized that a proper and paying municipal expense is building goods roads not only to the extreme outskirts of tho city, but miles into the country. Ohio and Iowa towns have expended large sums; and nowhere has there been dissatisfaction with the results. Des Moines has been widely herald ed for the success of its unique far mers' market; but in fact tho good roads that Des Moines pushed out like, tentacles in many directions to make it possible for the farmers to come to the. market have been of quite as much importance as .the market itself. One who rides over the stretch from Washington to Fredericksburg must be forced to realize the great realm of wasted opportunity that lies in that territory. It ought to be improved; Washington needs jt; Vir ginia needs it; the people who would be the most immediate beneficiaries need it. Whatever is the fair share that may be apportioned to Wash ington ought to be taken up willing ly by this city. BIO FOREION TRADE PROJECT Organization of the International Finance and Development Company, with $50,000,000 capital, and backed by the most pdwerful moneyed inter ests of the country, is to be re garded as one of the most import ant steps yet taken, probably much the most important, toward extend ing American commerce abroad. The new corporation contemplates noth ing less thnn to go into attractive foreign fields and buy up the con trol of companies now operating transportation and industries. There are many of these, controlled by British and German capital, particu- larly in Latin-America. Russia, and the east, in which the control is for; sale; tne fcuropcan owners aro in need to realize on their investments because of the pressure the war is plucing upon them. The greatest of all difficulties in extending American trade in the newer parts of the world has always tain in tne iact tnat European in tcrcstH have largely dominated the! nig concerns which buy goods. A South American railroad controlled in Germany will nuturally buy mils, enrs, locomotives, supplies, in Ger many; one controlled in England will look to that country. Financial domination is the basis of trade ad vantage; and because. Americans have been lets aggressive in push ing into financial fields abroad, they have suffered in trude opportunities. War has brought a new condition. Investments that two years ago were held in firm grip, and that 1.1 I I i; .. . . wuuiii 11111 iiuve uucii uisposcti oi even on proiuauic icrms, aio now in the market at prices which, consid cling the possibilities of their fu ture, make them highly attractive. Theie is actual pressure to sell that which until the present crisis was 3 not lo be hiul at any figure, tho great opportunity for tho States; an opportunity that will not be likely to como again, and that niust bo grasped now or not ut all.

I (nviia iu IIUIU 1.11. 1 ll.IIUUIII.UVU .IIUII foreign investments, becauso thcy,u0es On Record FJf Third Time will need these in order to maintain the foreign market for their indus trial products. The day peace is do,- clared, that day there- will be nj rush of competition into this foreign field, backed by all the financial and credit forces that the different countries can muster. Governments even now are looking toward this future, mobilizing thejir power to handle this financial and industrial situation, even as they mobilize their armies for military effort. But meanwhile the war increases dally the grim carrieBtnesa of its de mand for every ' possible pound, franc, or mark of revenue with which to carry on the struggle. There will be sacrifices of good things at bargain prices, and the In ternational Finance and Develop ment Corporation, with its $GO,000, 000 of capital all subscribed in ad vance nnd no public flotation what ever, is testimony that the United States is the one big reservoir of gold and credit in which such opera tions can be floated. . OUR HISTORICAL PORTRAITS Every now and then some visiting artist, who thinks n little publicity I would be helpful while he is in Washington, takes his fling at the nrt objects to be found in the Na tional Capital. It is gratifying that more sea soned artists are becoming restive under this sort of "criticism." The most recent attack was made by Charles Henry Hart, who wrote to u Philadelphia art society to com plain particularly of the paintings in galleries of that city, but took an incidental fling ut the portraits by Johnnthan Trumbull and Hcmbrundt Peale who painted many of the his torical works to bo seen in the Cor coran Gallery of Art in Washington, in the United States Capitol, .uid in some department buildings. , , . . I ArtiBts of a riper oxprnnncc, in-1 eluding onn veteran portrait painter and a noted sculptor of this city, do not hesitate to express gratitude to ward these pioneer portrait painters of this country. Their paintingh have an artistic value, in expressing the artistic ideas of our forefathers even though they may be crude in this generation, nnd they have a his ... , ... - , ,1 torical value In doing for, car y pub- lie V .!, tlu-.X 1 I1C men Whnt thO photographer IS I doino for the nntlnniP k... f, . I doing for the national' heroes ofi to day. These tWf painters, with Gilbert Stuart, who painted about sixty portraits of George Washington, ranKinp; in merit from the famous unfinished portrait in the Athe naeum in Boston, to mere copies of his better work, form a trio to whom painters and sculptors owe a debt. It has not been so long since the frequency with which the Father of His Country seems to have snt for his portrait caused so'me to suspect he may have been endowed with, un usual vanity, and others to suspect the authenticity of portraitures "from life." But a Washington woman, Elizabeth Johnson, cleared up the vncue suspicions on this nnlnt n n o.-fl l.V., ,l,!.l. j.w...v UJ vu.w.u. ,...M..j nt urn Mllun nroved that thnuih Wn-ihJnotnn i 0,ci Fellows Washington.
