Reports gathered by government experts confirm this, although not in so many words, perhaps. the judgment of official ''experts'' must credit the facts as-, they are disclosed. The uncqualcd resources of the government for search ing, out tlic facts of trade and industry afford a sure basis for judg ment' that shall influence action. General, confidence is all that is needed to expedite the return to a larger degree of commercial normalcy on which the country will thrive. That confidence, now lacking, will be restored to busi ness and industry with a regime in power at Washington upon which' the nation can rely for the sane conduct of its affairs. With strengthened faith, the people need no longer postpone replenish ment of supplies and-the repairing of properties. A dollar wisely expended will start a train of commercial and industrial operations that' will result in astonishingly widespread business revival. One of the most commendable of all our practices is wise economy. It is upon it .that ultimate prosperity is founded, since it provides the essential to reviving the fires of commercial activity that, sometimes are permitted to die down. Those who now have a few 'dollars with which to supply their wants will give to general radc' just that d.cgree of stmulus that is needed. They will in crease that 'demand for goods which results in the reopening of factories and the recalling of transportation crews to service, that reaches back to the producers of raw materials and compels activ ity in every commercial and industrial enterprise. DRAFTING EXPERIENCE SINCE THE .DESIGNATION of Myron T. Hcrrick as ambassa dor to France depends 'oil a favorable. -answer by that nation as to his acceptability, the appointment may be regarded as settled. France gave Mr. Hcrrick the Cross of the Legion of Honor as an expression of gratitude for the services he rendered in the early days of the war. It is inconceivable, therefore, that they would reject him now. It is not often -at least that an ambassador is returned to his former post after an interim, so that Mr. Hcrrick enjoys an un usual honor. His record ,as ambassador was such as to unite the French closer to us. He had been permitted to linger on his post after President Wilson entered the White House alul happened to be still there when the war broke out. When Paris was alarmed by the onrush of the Germans and the government made a hasty retreat, Mr. Hcrrick refused to leave- He stayed on the job and was of great assistance in calming the excitement in those troublous days. ', 'Iflli It is the enviable record he made during his previous service, no doubt, that influenced President Harding in returning him to Paris. In these time's of reconstruction service is needed and one who has had the experience of Mr. Herrick is the kind of a man needed in such an important post. The appointment is in keeping with the policy of the new administration. Major General Hugh L. Scott shi ip t'6 Mexico confuse him with the General Scott in 1847. If it's. money he's' after, why doesn't Charles conic .to America and pose for the movies? They've got lots of perfectly grand thrones and palaces on the lots at Los Angeles. , It's worse than we thought. The young man who cut quite a swath pretending to be President Harding's cousin is said to be afflicted with dementia praccox katatonia.
