So rules Ciare Sheridan, English woman sculptor, who has "done" Lentae in far-off Moscow, and has of late been traveling and - writing pertinent things about Americans. She jumped into the contro versy over the new Macmon nies statue for City Hall Park today very firmly "The idea of making civic virtue masculine and civic temptation feminine seems sound to me," Mrs. Sheridan said. "Women are the tradi tional tempters. "You'll find them underfoot ensnaring men and trying to drag him down and you'll find them up there inspiring him to do big things "Women are a tremendous, vital force-dragging down, lifting up. "American women I'm afraid, are too sex-conscious, though what they have to be so tojchy about I'm sure I don't know." - CONGRESSMEN TAKING SHOALS VISIT SEWOUSLY Decline Entertainment and Start Two-Days' Tour-Ala bamans Cheer Attitude. ny tatersatesat News servies.

N.W. 4P CT' PUTS BIGSTRAIN ON AUSTRALINS JII Have to Unlearn Pipular Song In Which They "Upper cut the Japs." By WILLIAM HARD, Cemepltaa News kere. Washington is full of troubles and sorrows but our visitors bring us some sunshine. It would be too bad to pay them no honor for it. There Is Ran d oIp h Bedford, for instance, of Australia. He d r i f t s through among us, scat. tering the clouds with good stories. His best is the military march ing song which the young lads of the great Australian con tinental com monwealth seem e eamese to like to sing WILLIAM HARD as they drill. It illustrates the Australian passion for tacking the -adjective "bloody" to every near-by noun and it also illustrates the probable degree of fervor felt by the Australians for the Anglo-Japanese ;lliance. Fellows of Australia. Blokes and coves and coots, Shake your bloody carcasses, Move your bloody boots! Hear the bloody bugle Sound the bloody 'vance! Don't be like a flock of sheep In a bloody trance. Blow the bloody bugle. Beat the bloody drum "Upper cut" and "out" the Japs To kingdom bloody come! I spoke of Australia as a "conti nental commonwealth." I withdraw the phrase. Australia held out for being a continent, more or lees, until December 10. 1921. Then th a four-power treaty was reported to the Washington conference and Au' tralia became under the treaty an island. Japan used in be a group i. islands. Then President Harding took a chance at interpreting the four-power treaty and Japan be. came a "mainland." * Visconti Venosta. who was here with the Italian delegation during the Washington Conference. said: "I used to hate geography when it was a matter of science. I rat'et' like it now since it has become i matter of taste." In any case the Australian march itt song Is no song for the four power treaty. Oscar Underwood says in the Senate that under the fparapower treaty f the Russians the.'V. .ge will firnd t lves in Ities with th United States and the British Em pire. The Australians who mnrch with the Japanese against the Rum elans will have to be carefully in structed not to shoot the way th''y sing. The very beet story applicable to the four-power treaty, however, is I one told by Willmott Lewis, the Washington correspondent f the London Times. He does not apply it to the'fourpower treaty but I do. Lewis, being British, or although British. knows more good stories than any other occupant of the Press Gallery. I hsd leerd the State Depart ment say that the Anglo-Japanese Alliance was a most serious thing for the United States and I had heard Senator Lodge in the Senate say that the four-power treaty was really nothing at all but a promise to do some talking and I had medi tated on the ease with which our statesmen were able to got rid of menace by hurling a goose-egg a! it. when Willmott Lewis happened to tell me the story of the railway traveler and the mongoos. I used to have a mongoos in India and it killed many snakes for me. In the story a traveler gets into .t railway carriage In England and lie carried with him a little box. It was a very little box which he carried in one hand. A fellow traveler presently adtd to' him: "I hope you won't think I'm too inquisitive hut would you mind tell ing me what you have in that box?' "It's a sad business," said the first traveler. "There's a friendi of mine lives doWdn along this railway and he has delirium tremnena and he sees snakes all the time. He sees them day and night. He can't stop seeing them. So I'm taking him a mongoos." The second traveler relapsed into silence. Me thought. Then he said: "But 'just a moment! Really, I don't quite understand. These snakes that your friend sees, they're not real snqkes, you know." "Ah!" said the first traveler. 'True! I-ut I've got that point in mind. This morngoos that I'm tak ing him is not a real mongoos." If Mr. Hughes is right aboutithe poisonousness of' the Anglo-Japanese alliance, and if Mr. Lodge is right about the innocuousness of the four-power treaty, its proper name ins history is the Snake and Mongoom treaty. Walter Fiher, of Chicago. former St-cretary of the Treasury, attorney 're for the Association of the Own p-q of' Railnay Securities, gave tne' I nterstate. Commerce Commission some news dhe other day about Cra%* us ('rast.e used to be a great ft 1.end of Ju.iu. C'aesar's. In fact, lhe finmneed Julius Caesar's politics. He was Julius' chief campaign contribu tor. He was the richest man in Rome. Jusst what he had to do with American tailways was not clear till WValter Fisher warn discussing Gov ernment ownership of railways be tore the Inlt-rstate Commerce Com-. m'rsion and told the commission just how it was that Craaaus became the richest men ins Iome. Rome. we learn, had no public fire department. So Crassus got up a private fire department. It con. isted of slaves pf his whom he trained to put out fires. When a Roman's house was hburning Crassus firedtib s dava an wsted sa to the waer: "I t to MAY "Ir houise. Nas much 1 u tae lt?' It. the owner == a high price Crassus would t to his slaver and say: "o 'er brn." en the owner finally named a low price, Crassus would may to his siaver "Put 'or out." Then the daves would eatinguist the fire and Creaue would lave the house.' Thus 'he becaus the richest man In Rome. But then arede a tribune of the people, who said: "Let us have a public fire department." Which wag done. But, as Fisher ably pointed out, there was no doubt that at tha moment Rome rang with the cry: "Are you going to destroy privat initiative? Look at' the initiative o1 Citasus. By his energy, by his daring, he gave us a fire depart ment. Are we going to discourage capital? Are we going' to destroy private bgsiness? Are we going it have socialism?" Yet, in spite of this cry, the out rage happened and Rome got a public fire de tament instead of a private one. Sd Yes, our v tors ought to h thanked for at least some of the stories they bri g with them. Births, Iliaths Phon. Main\ 6260 Until 2 P. M. Obituary Deak DR. DAVID 0. WILLfS.
