DON'T BE A GOOSE-STEPPER
A league to standardize women's clothes,
tganized some time ago in Paris, of all places,
as hoisted the white flag. It finds that the
ur.g simply cannot be done. Women may agree
) wear standardized shoes and other things
cn less conspicuous but when milady's hat -is
ontioned, there is revolt.
As a matter of fact the failure of the league
gratifying. The tendency everywhere to
andardize everything if allowed, to continue
ill make "goose-steppers" of everybody. There
ay be places where standardization is desirable
id necessary. This is especially true on rail-
Lads and certain mechanical fields, but else-
here standardization leads to monotony and a
rcary existence.
A block of standardized houses is not to be
jmpared with a block of individual houses sep-
aiely designed. No person is fastidious who
:shkes to wear clothes "just like her neighbor."
s the variety in life that makes it tasty.
graceful thing to suggest calling out the fire
department, or In suggesting any other necess
ary remedy. When a man can't keep himself
straight, It it a friendly office to hand him a
sound principle or two to help him do so. When
a continent, after centuries of effort, dare not
go to sleep without pistols under the pillow
and a howitzer behind the door, it is only fair
to indicate that something is wrong.
What poor old Clemenceau does not realize,
and never can realize, is that there are no stable
principles of human intercourse that can fit
themselves to the narrow European conception
conception of distrustful, jealous, competitive
nationality. The theories he decides as alien
are nothing more than the principles of common
sense by which a saner world tries to further
its happiness; they are alien to M. Clemenceau
only in the sense that the New Testament Is
alien to the gun-man. The defect lies with the
gun-man.
CLEMENCEAU CANNOT SEE IT
Georges Clemenceau, in one of his written
nicies, makes the quaint remark that "all theo
ies which have been recommended to Contin-
atal Europe have the draw-back of having been
panufactured for the benefit of the European
ontinent by men who do not belong to that
ontinent."
This remarkable pronouncement is not even
upcrficialiy true. Moreover it cancels itself,
ncc if anyone manufactured a theory for Con-
nental Europe it is prima facia evidence that
Europe failed signally to manufacture a theory
jt itself. The continent of Europe is no spright-
young state, experimenting along the path-
ay of nationality. It is a hoary old adventurer
ho did little else but evolve theories, mostly
ike, for several centuries; all of which added
uel to the conflagration of 1914.
The most reticent friend, with that memory
till alive, is justified in venturing a suggestion
r two. When a man's house is burning it is a
THE AMERICAN MUSEUM
The Museum of the American Indian which
was recently opened to the public in New York
City is unique in being the only one of its kind
in the world. The collection comprises 1,800,000
speciments of American Indian life. George
Gustav Heye, the founder of the collection, is
an American engineer who early made the
gathering of Indian relics a hobby and of late
a business. The specimens represent the life
of Indians in both South and North America,
and were the result of 25 years' search on the
part of Mr. Heye and hi3 explorers.
The significance of such a collection as is
housed in the Heye Museum is not to be under
estimated. Little Is known of the origin of the
American Indian. As a matter of American his
tory, it is important that scholars should be en
couraged to direct their investigations in this
direction. In no better way could this be done
than in the establishing of such an institution as
the new Museum of the American Indian.
THE Maine woman who has gone on a
hunger strike to force a reconciliation with her
husband is establishing a fairly good precedent
for plump girls who have passed the cute stage.
SOAP has reappeared In Russia, but to
those who see in this a decadence of bolshevlsm
it is pointed out that the safety razor Is still unknown.
EUROPE'S difficulty appears to be that
whenever someone tries to pour oil on troubled
waters he manages to get it on a fire instead.
Smoking among women may not be as gen
eral as reported, but these cigaret bargain sales
look mighty suspicious.
A Toledo man says he has discovered 214
different kinds of mushrooms in twelve years.
It is obvious that he didn't try them all.
There's always a fly in the ointment. Piker
bandits are annoying rich bootleggers.

ACCIDENTS WILL HAPPEN
The claims agent of x well-known accident insurance company says
there is at times considerable humor discernible in the somber back
ground of his business. Some cases were reported to him as follows:
"I placed an electric fan beside my bed on a hot night. While
asleep I stuck my foot in it."
'In a playful mood I kicked at my wife while barefooted and ac
cidentally struck her on the knee, thereby spraining the big toe of my
left foot."
"I was undressing for bed. In removing my anion suit I fractured
the second finger of my left hand-"
"I was embraced by a friend, who playfully said that he could
make me cry. and fractured my rib."
"On a private yacht I had just had a highball, got up, the boat gave
a lurch ana I sat down on the glass."
"Missed my train and while walking on country road fell over a
cow lyinj in the road."
"Sitting in a chair in a barber shop and billiard parlor, a ball
from the pool table near by struck me on the nose, breaking nose and
injuring one eye."
"Had been talking with another man and as I started to walk
along didn't notice a woman had pushed a baby carriage directly in
front of me fell over it."
"I was going down the walk in front of my house when an auto
mobile wheel which had come off two blocks away rolled down the
hill and struck me, fracturing both bones of my right l-g."
"I was riding in an automobile when it struck a hole in the road,
causing my teeth to come together with such force that my lower jaw
was fractured."
"Looking for burglars, I was accidentally mistaken by one of my
neighbors for the man we were looking for and he shot me in the arm."
Vienna doctor has told all the women in the world bov they may
be beautiful, and, gosh! how they will dread it.
One pastor says the average girl goes to a dance wearing only four
garments. Well, well take the pastor's word for it.
EVEN "PUNCH" GOT THIS ONE
A New York paper suggests that as we are not paying our debt
America should send some of her lecturers to England. Don't do that.
We'll pay. Punch (London).
He was a proper professional conjurer, and after proceeding to
get the audience under his spell, he commenced in real earnest.
"Now, ladies and gentlemen," he said, with" wave of the hand,
"this is the magic cabinet. I invite any lady in the audience to enter
the cabinet. I will then close the door, and when it shall be opened
again, the lady v.ill have disappeared, leaving no trace."
There was an impressive silence until a little, undersized man in
the second row turned to an enormous woman who sat by him, and
breathed eagerly:
"Maria, dear, won't you oblige the gentleman?" i
There is always a little something to be thankful for when we
approach Thanksgiving day. A fire in Honolulu destroyed 4,000
ukuleles.
