This great oil seller plainly tells the people that it will be impossible to supply the war needs in its products unless the au tomobile owners quit joy riding, ?nd use gasoline and oil only for business purposes. Here is not only a warning, but an indictment against the extravagant. It will be useless to call upon one class to save; such economy is farci cal. It will not be necessary to park your car for good, in order to save by not buying gasoline; but the joy rider who takes a daily or nightly jaunt can easily reduce .his riding passion one-half. The private citizen who owns a car for the pleasure and necessity of his family, need not dis continue this pleasure altogether, but a more moderate use of his car will answer the purpose. The greatest saving must come from the pleasures and conveniences of life; economy in the necessaries can be only a small part of the sav ing campaign. The poor man is more or less wasteful, but ,his corner cut ting is ncessarily very small, and he, as a general rule, will derive the greatest benefit. The poor man must increase his home-earning to a larg er extent than the decreasing of his cost of living. Most of them have little enough. .1 THINK OF SAVING The best way to save money is by reason. If a person should want any article which does not enter into the absolute necessity of the moment a very good line of thought like this would be helpful: I want it, yes, I wifi reason out a way to do without it first instead of reasoning out how I can get it. Another very comfortable way would be for the housewife to think of the merchant occasionally, in stead of using the telephone every hour in ordering Hie days necessi ties. We might say in passing, that the women are a little in advance of the men in trying to cut corners and to save. « A meeting of the ladies' of each community to resolve upon a uni form maximum price to pay for win ter dresses and hats, Would be very helpful. This would not only be cub ing a corner, but it would add to the comfort and peace of mind of. the class who are less favored with this world's goods. Emulation in some tilings is very good, but in the fash ions of the day, it serves to im poverish some and to make too ex travagant, others. OURACCOUNT OVERDRAWN EIGHT BILLIONS 2^ac ly its on on on the er The present extra session of the Congress will provide for the collec tion and the expenditure of about eight billion dollars over and above the normal, alimony necessary to run the government. This means that six per cent of the entire wealth of the 48 states of the Union will be used for destructive purposes the fir:.' year of the war with Germany.' This amount of money, under nor mal conditions and in normal times, would purchase the absolute neces sities—food, clothing and medicine for the entire population of the Uni ted States for a period of 27 years; it would provide the necessities and all conveniences of the population for a period of 9 years; it would pay the expenses of the Federal Govem mnet for 12 years. If these figures do not convince our people that economy, thrift, in creased production outlay, in every family is not a demand instead of a suggestion, ahsolute want wfl soon stare most o i then} squarely hi the face. HOW THE WAR CAME TO AMER ~ ICA. (Continued from page 1) ersmen had not yet reached the Mississippi, the fame of our daring; clipper ships had spread to all the Seven Seas. So while we could watch the triumphant march and the tragic counter-march of Napoleon's grand army with detached indifference, j his Continental Blockade and the British Orders in Council at once af fected the lives of our citizens in timately and disastrously. ; So * was in the case of th ? Bar ' bary pirates. We had no interest in 5c , the land quarrels and civil wars of 10 it a the Barbary States, but we fought them for obstructing the freedom of the seas. And in the decades ever since, al though the imagination of our peo ple has been engrossed in the im mense labor of winning the West, our Department of State has never lost sight of the compelling interest that we have upon the seas, and has constantly striven to gain the assent of all nations to a maritime code which should be framed and enfor ced by a joint responsibility. Various watchwords have arisen in this long controversy. We have urged the in violability of private property at sea we have asked for a liberal free list and a narrow definition of contraband. One salient idea has guided our diplomacy. The law of the sea must be founded not on might but on right and be changed or set aside by the will of any one nation. Our ideal has been not a weakening but a strengthening of legal restraint by the free and agreement of all. We have asked nothing for ourselves that we do not ask for the whole world. The seas will never be free, in our American meaning, until all who sail thereon have .had a voice in framing sea laws. The just governance of the seas must rest on the consent of the governed. No other question of international I polity has found the great powers more divided. But in our insistence I on this fundamental principle, we 1 have been strengthened by the sup port of many other countries . At times we have had the support of Great Britain. No one of our Secre taries of State has more clearly de fined our ideal than has Viscount Grey, recently British Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs. None of our statesmen has ever gone sofar as he in advocating limitation of the rights of belligerents of the sea. It was on his initiative that the inter national naval conference was sum moned to London in 1909, and it was under his guidance that the eminent international lawyefs and diplomats and admirals who gather ed there drew up the Declaration of London. While there were in the Declara tion sections that did not quite meet our approval and that we should have liked to amend, the document was from our point of view a tre mendous step in advance. For al though, like any efforts to concise ly formulate the broad principles of equity, it did not wholly succeed in its purpose, it was at least an honest attempt to arrive at an agreement on a complete international code of sea law, based upon mutual consent and not to be altered by any belli gerent in the heat of the conflict. But the Declaration of London was not ratified by the British Par liament, for the point of view pre -1 vailing then in England was that a power dependent almost wholly up on its navy for protection could not safely accept further limitation sup on action at sea unless there were compensating limitations on land powers. And this latter concession Germany consistently refused to make. The conference therefore came to naught. ^.nd the London Declaration having been rejected by the strongest maritime power, its in dorsement was postponed by all oth er countries involved.

When will something^be done to afford relief to the autoists, who are traveling between New Orleans and Morgan City, is a daily question pro pounded by the autoists who come into this city daily after most trying experiences between Gibson and Morgan City. According to their re ports, this stretch of road is most horrible, and is really a detriment to the section. One autoist who arrived here this week from San Antonio told a representative of The Review that he had been informed of these conditions as far west as Houston. TWs is an example of what bad roads will do for a section of the country.
