OUTLAWING OF WAR HAS PAST VISION STAGE League of Women Voters May Make Discussion Con vention Item. BY CONSTANCE DREXEL. WASHINGTON. April IS.—“lf I catch the conscience of America, we’ll lead the .world to outlaw war." said Senator Hard line on Sept 4, 19-0. Then as if in sequel to that thought, the President’s keynote conference ad dress, Nor. 12. 1921 t “Contemplating the measureless cost of war and the continuing burden of arma ment. all thoughtful peoples wish for real limitations of armament and would like war outlawed.” In a Senate speech on May 5. 1929, the late Senator Knox of Pennsylvania planted the same idea; “• * * initiate an international conference • • * to formulate * * * an arrangement * * * providing for the outlawry of war.” It seems fifing that the seeds thus planted should be ready to sprout at this Easter period. The plan proposed to make war illegal jusr as individual murder is considered illegal between individuals is in some thing more than a visionary stage. In effect ,-n outline for a conference of nations looking toward the codification of international law is now Senate docu ment 115. It was presented by Senator Borah on Jan. 19, 1922 and ordered to be printed. It Is a twelve page pamphlet signed by Faimon O. Levinson, a lawyer of Chicago who states that the plan was formulated in 1915 by the late Senator Kaoi and the author. Its present interest is *n the fact that It will prnbabiy be one of the big fea tures of the League of Women Voters convention which opens in Baltimore, April 24. Immediately following the three da v Pan-American conference. Here let It be Aid that the plan has no bearing on the present effort in Congress for the reduction of the Army and the Navy. Miss Elizabeth .1. Hauser, chairman of k-he leagm V committee for the reduction "of armament by international agreement makes this exclusive statement about her plans. "There will be a conference of my com mittee dosed to the public, at which Sirs. Wililam palmer Lucas. Miss Jane Ad dams. Mrs. Cart and perhaps latdy Astor wiil discuss the theory of illegaliziug war. T shall urge as the fundamental thing a declaration of the league, through the convention, in favor of abolishing war as an institution for the settlement of In ternationa! dispute. This ;s the begin ning. This is laying t’qe ax to the root of the evil tree, whereas to take action on methods of warfare, like poison gas, the submarine, etc., is merely trimming the branches. “The first strp is to have the civilized nations of the world come together in a conference an.l outlaw war. Make war a crime, as murder has been made a crime, as dueling has been made 'i crime; define it and define the punishment for the violation." Miss Hauser then explains how she and her committee which includes as members Mrs. Charles Sumner Bird and Mrs. Malcolm Forbes of Massachusetts, Mrs. .T. Borden Harrimon of New Vork and Washington. Mrs. William Palmer Lucas of San Francisco. Miss Katharine Ludington of Lyme. Conn., and Mr. James W. Morrison of t’hicago. came to be interested In the idea of outlawing war like this: Following the national convention in Cleveland last year. Judge Florence F. Allen wrote to several influential women proposing something of the idea sug gested above. No action was taken and most people forgot, about if. Along in mid-summer Mr. S. ft. Levinson present ed Mr Jj mes W. Morrison, in <'hi re a go. a ttee'.s en • The Outlawry of War,” which had been prepared by himself and the late Senator Knox. Mrs. Morrison sent the paper to Miss Hauser, chairman of the committee who recognized it as something of the same nature about which Judge Alice had been talking earlier. She sent it to her, who pronounced it O. K , from the standpoint of soundness as to legal principles It seems that Judge Alien has specialized on international law. After Mr. Levinson’s brief was printed, it was sent to each State president of the league for study before the con vention. Now It Is a Senate document and is being distributed very widely. All types of persons seem to be In trigued by this plan. For instance lllegallzlng war by International agree ment was suggested by Captain Luke MeNames. chief of the t’uited States j BEAUTY CULTURE HINTS Thtr< is ral foimnon sense In Just mticinz whether the hair is wcli kept to Judge of a woman's neatness, or coed taste.

Or dinarily she should wear the single mesh, for if it is chosen to match her hair it will be much less visible and effect a more perfect coiffure.

Germany has plenty to sell—witness her tremendous business activities in Amer ica at the present moment —but is hard ly able to finance Russia on any con siderable scale. If her whines that she cannot meet reparation obligations nre well founded, the United States Govern ment does not envisage Germany as a very effective or dangerous economic fac tor in Russia. She may become so later, and eventually is certain to do so, for Germany’s economic recovery is pro ceeding at a pace the outside world does aot realize. At the moment, our diploma tic leaders see little to worry over In the German-RussiaD treaty. When the soviet delegation passed through Berlin, en route to Genoa in March, newspaper correspondents asked Pr. Walther Rathenau. German foreign minister, if theie were any secret under standing between Berlin and Moscow. Rathenau declined to shed light on that score. Today’s news turns it on. GERMANY GETS N ON GROUND FLOOR.

Germany—the Germany of Rath enau, Siinnes, Tbvsseu, Gwinner, Helneken. Cuno and the other business giants of pre war times—always was de termined to become tbe economic master of Russia.

No man in Europe, not even in Russia itself, today knows its economic pos sibilities as thoroughly as the banker engineer-philosopher-statesman, Rathen au. who signed for Germany with Tchicherln, at Genoa. Unless all signs fail the world will not need to wait long to see the real dimensions of the march Germany has stolen. It may be that Rathenau and Tchicherln mean to an ticipate the long-mooted Genoa program to make Germany the “mandatory” of Europe In the exploitation of Russia. Now it is Germany that can dictnte terms instead, of blandly having to aeept thorn from her “oppressors."—Copyright, 1922, by Public Ledger Company. FRAXCE STA YS~ IX CONFERENCE PARIS.

This is declared to be about one third of the apples produced in the United States. Wheat is. perhaps, the largest resource of the State and a great part of the State Is devoted to it.

At the moment the chief interest of the State is the projected Colombia Basin ir rigaiion project to reclaim 1,753,000 acres. This represents about three-fourths of the total irrigable land within the State not now irrigated. The State is making the preliminary surveys and Investiga. tion, but. presently the project will ap pear in Washington for Federal aid and sustenance. The way affairs have been managed through the depression of last year makes for confidence and reassurance, and Washington's recovery has been better than any of its Immediate neighbors. It is in a striking position just, now in that it is not asking for outside money and assistance. 7
