SIGHT OF WAY FOB THE ADMINISTRATION'
rHE administration is pleading to be allowed
to proceed according to Its own plans in re;ard
to the attitude ot the United States toward
Sufope. The President in a letter to the Senate
isks that the premature amendment suggested
ly Senator Borah be defeated so that plans now
letng formulated by the President and his cabnet
may go ahead unhindered.
That the request ot the. President will be given
iu'e consideration goeB without question. Surely
he President of the United; States and his cabinet
.'ho have been living with the,European situation
or months past, weighing and balancing, studying
.nd watching, are more capable of formulating
or this country a policy under which we may act.
han Senator Borah and any supporting faction,
rho may enlist under his banner.
The people of this country realize that a crisis
s at hand which demands all the wisdom that
he statesmanship here can command. There are
ertaln European problems coming out of reparaion
disagreements and selfish political attitudes
hat America cannot nor will not touch, but thore
s an economic situation which must be saved If .
be United States can do it, and action here will
irobably call the United States into closer^ relaionshlp
with the other nations than it has lilthero
been our policy to obBerve.
Whatever the outcome, no small senatorial
roup bo its loader over so brilliant can presume
o direct the expansion of the American foreign ;
ollcy. This, administration may stand or fall by
ts action now, and since the responsibility rests
rith it, it should surely be given a free hand to
roceed as it sees best. Since Senator Borah has
timself witnessed a need, and gathered himself
nd his followers toward a similar end to thai in
ho minds of the administration, why should he
ot put *hi8 own strength and influence behind
ho wishes of the President in this matter?
FAIRMONT HAS GRIPPE
FAIRMONT seems to be suffering an epidemic
of old fashioned grippe; probably flu in a
ight form. Physicians are overworked taking care
? tho number, of cases that havo developed. The
dtients are thoroughly miserable, but are seldom
langerously 111. Families are taken- with it' in
ne, two, three or&er, thus proving tho coutagiousless
of the diseaso.
Especial carc should be takon by those afflicted
o avoid passiug the illness on to others. What
nay be a case involving but a few days conflneaont
for one person, may prove fatally serious
or another. All grippe casos should be isolated,
>nd it would be belter not to receive callers at!
11 lu the home whero one or .more cases are ]
resent.
While many welcomed the unusually warm and |
vuouiu; ivmvuui uvciiuiub u?cr cuijaiuiaa, lulling
it delightful to stroll in the open without
loavy wraps and the usual trappings of Christmas
feather, yet those days seemed veritable trouble
ireeders for the public health and there has been
tremendous numbr of bad colds followiug, with
;rippe complications in dozens of instances. Alaost
invariably this is true when unseasonably
/arm weather prevails in winter time. It is hard
o find the reason, unless the .people carelessly
xpose themselves or, what is equally dangerous,
ail to regulate the temperature in their homes,
nd become overheated as a consequence.
Certainly the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad
Company pays a lot of taxes in West Virelnia.
fobody denies thia fact upon which the distin.aished
representative of the B. & 6. dwelt bo
mpressively In the conference here on Thursday.
Jut how much money does the B. & 0. derive
rom its West Virginia business? Which way does
he balanco dip most heavily? Will the mere paynent
of taxes discharge all the obligation of the
I. &. O. to West Virginia and her people.
o
Goloshes will now come into their own. The
oung ladies have been practising a good while
rith this kind of footgear, doubtless getting ready
or this kind of weather. Preparednoss' is the
ight idea.
The New Year's resolution has become more of
; popular joke than a real, serious pledge, but
oking aside, why not a new and better program
or the new year? None of us are so good Wit
chat we might be better and since there is room
or improvement, why not strive toward it? Aimng
high never hurt anyone, and all human achieve*,
nent is built upon ambition.

Candy Firm Reorganized With
Store Here Under Direction
of C- B. Ambrose.
The Benj. Franklin Candy Co.
store In-the Osgood Building, 422
Main street; was reopened today
under the hew management and supervision
ot Clyde B. Ambrose of
Washington, D. C;
Mr. Ambrose was In Fairmont
yesterday making final arrangements
to reestablish' tho candy
store. For a number of years Mr.
Ambrose served the United States
government as a pure food expert
and i he recently became affiliated
with the reorganised Benj. Franklln
Candy Co., whose headquarters
and factory are In Washington.
For several days the local store
was closed due to the reorganization
plans being carried out but It
was temporarily opened to taku
care of holiday shoppers who desired
their favorilo BenJ. Franklin
candles for.Christmas. > Saturday a
week ago was unusually hoavy In
i point ot sales, according to the
statement of Miss Sylvia Connor,,
uie saiesiaay in cnarge or tne store,
and the stocks Were considerably
depleted. However, there has been
a sufficient Variety,, of candy on
hand.'according to'Miss Connor,
and fresh shipments will soon bo
on the way from the Washington
faqtory each day.
Mr. Ambrose returned to Washington
last night, but. before, doing
so had occasion to look thoroughly
over the city, remarking that Fairmont
impressed him raoro favorably
thait any other small city in
which his company is operating
stores.
Benj. Franklin candy is. made .in
the mp?t sanitary way of,'pure, unadulterated
ingredbents, Mr. Ambrose
said. It is. "old-fashioned"
candy quite like the best sort of
a cook would make at home In her
oyrn kitchen and Its widespread
popularity is largely duo to Its
"homey'l appea/ance and' deliciousness,
Mr. Ambrose declared.
The. Ben]. Franklin pandy store
will be open every day and also
during the evenings until 9 or 10
o'clock.
