SATURDAY, APRIL 29, 1916. BELATED WINTER. When winter Is done, and Its Journey is run, It ought to retire for a • while; retire to its tomb, or its lair, and make room lor spring, with • • her radiant smile. When spring comes along with her laughter and song, • • and birds singing carols In tune, man, trustful galoot, dons a light gauzy • • suit, and underwear fitted for June. He's chipper and gay, and he thinks • • It O. K. to soak ail his wintertime duds; oh, he's stylish and neat, and • • the girls say he's sweet as the bees and the birds and the buds. Then • • spring flies away, and the heavens are gray, and winter comes back with • • a roar, with winds that are bleak, being iced for a week somewhere on • • the Spitzbergen shore. Then where Is the guy who was sauntering by, • • attired in his summertime rig? In a hospital bed he is out of his head, • • insisting on dancing a Jig. Doc says to the nurse, "Better order a • • hearse, and measure this gent for a grave; there's no way to miss such « • a drama as this, since winter won't learn to behave." e • Protected by the • Adams Newspaper Service* New York. * THE BETHLEHEM ARMOR ARGUMENT. The Bethlehem Steel company is spending a consid erable sum of money on printing and postage. It has on its mailing list, presumably, every newspaper of any con sequence, and every congressman, whether of consequence or not. The company is determined to give full publicity to its side of the armor plate controversy. The campaign is being carried on with energy. The company has issued its twelfth bulletin, supplemented by a signed statement from six minority members of the house committee on naval affairs. This committee has favorably reported the Tillman bill to appropriate $11,000,000 for a government armor plant. The minority calls attention to certain statements which are worthy of consideration: The naval bill this year will carry an appropriation undoubtedly of mors than >200.000,000. This bill appropriates >11,000,000 for an armor plate factory of 20,000 tons capacity. ■ The estimates for this plant were made in 1913. Since that time lnbor and material have advanced In cost approximately 40 per cent. If this plant' is built under present conditions, or at any time during the con tinuance of the war iu-Europe, it probably will cost the government >15,000,000. We believe that this money could be spent more wisely at this time on the navy afloat than on the navy ashore. The. point made of the rise in cost of materials and labor is well worth considering, and it is to be hoped that the house, before it either approves or rejects the Tillman plan, will learn whether $11,000,000 is enough. If it is not, neither congress nor the country should be deceived. However, the appropriation, whether of $11,000,000 or of $15,000,000, for the erection of a government armor plant, is not, as some congressmen seem to think, intended either to weaken private industry or to take from such industry its share of government business. The object to give the government control ot the situation and at the same time to increase the immediate output of armor rnu Ä i cij. i * i l l • plate.

It seems that the company asks onlv for enough government work to keep its plant going. "Anv ieturn-however small—on the cost of our plant," says the statement, "any payment toward taxes, insurance and A '-X' , , • , 1 Ji 1 • • , ,■ aepreciation; any contribution toward the administrative expenses, is better than the loss of the whole plant." ta. i l • i It assumes that the erection ot a government plant will scrap its own plant, in which $7,000,000 has been invested. The company reminds the public that the naval estimates call for 24,000 tons of armor a year for the next five years, If it receives orders for 8000 tons a vear, it explains, it can run its plant at two-thirds capacity and reduce the price. That would still leave 10.000 tons a year for the govern ment and other plants. As the Midvale and Carnegie companies have not joined the Bethlehem company in its protest, it is presumed that neither is concerned about government orders, 'Flic situation would thus seem to in volve only the Bethle hem plant and the goveAment. GtIIvIjS COLLEGE EXPENSES. To the benighted few who will still adhere to the comic weekly idea of the frivolous expenditures of girls at col lege, some figures prepared by the dean of Smith college ought to be enlightening. There it appears from statistics recently compiled, 421 girl students spend an average of $765.55 a college year, the individual accounts ranging prom $350 to $1850, and 56 per cent spend less than $750, [their budgets being made up somewhat as follows: [Necessities. [Pleasure, church and charités iBooks and stationery . [ The dean further shows that in the case of students hvhose expenditures range from $350 to $600 a year, their stems, beginning with the heaviest and concluding with [that of least expense, were: Board and room, traveling, Incidentals, books, recreation, clothing, dues, health, l-hurch and laundry. In the various groups spending more khan $600 clothing was the next to the largest item of ex pense, which indicates, so the dean concludes, that the feirls vvho must economize the most do much of their pressmaking. She then makes public a page from the letual ledger of a stud.ent who is to he graduated this ■Tune: .87.4 per cent . 8.2 per cent . 4.2 per cent own Freshman Sophomore Year. >160.00 400.00 114.63 12.78 27.96 16.75 51.32 14.87 38.86 3,6.05 13.96 Year. .>150.00 . 400.00 . 184.12 'uition . loard and Room . nothing.... sundry..

Then, of course, as we all know, the was $50 a young worden students of the country's colleges—if Smith can be taken as a fair sample—are doing very well in meeting and solving their financial problems. Not much money, at any rate, is being wasted. And, in most in stances, there is so little difference between the individ ual budgets that the "social distinction" oftentimes cre ated by the possession of a "liberal" allowance—the cause of so much and such needless girlish agony at school—is, fortunately, not in evidence. cost of living was much lower and tuition, also, year less.

"Do you mean she had the nerve to change my desk from the place where It has been for years to put hers there?" asked her husband, draw ing his heavy brows together in a frown. Mrs. Folsom said nothing. She had been utterly worn out trying to keep peace between him and his daughter in-law. "Why did you let her do it?" he per sisted.

You bet it will, but she has no notion of not coming back here. Don't you see that she would not go to the trouble of changing things around for a \keek or two?"

"It is a hard thing to have to say to one's son; that he cannot stay under the root that has always been home to him." Mrs. Folsom's tone was sad. "Pshaw! mother, every son expects to leave home when he is married. The mistake was in letting him bring her here In the first place. A man has no business to marry till he can provide a home for his wife." "I know it, and I advised against the plan, as you remember, but nothing 1 could say could turn him from his plan, and you gave your consent. You could have refused, but you didn't." • Mrs. Folsom smiled. The doctor made a wry face. "1 guess I am not much better than you when it comes to denying Harry any thing, tut this thing cannot go on. For the sake o? the future relations of all of us, they must have a home by them selves In the fall." "I think Harry must see If himself. One %>f Us must talk to him about It." Mrs. Folsom rose and walking over to the window, laid her hand on her hus band's shoulder. "I'll do it If you want me to."
