Wednesday, June 23, 1920. TIME IS PROPITIOUS TO REVIVE PLAN FOR FREE. BRIDGE TO JUAREZ NOT SINCE the time of Porfirio Diaz have drramstaaces been so favorable as sow to promote with all vigor the nroject of a monumental free bridge across the Rio Grande it this point. Diaz had taken deep interest in public ,iorks, and particularly after his visit to Juarez to meet president Tart he expressed a Sesire to make of Juarez a 'show city," a creditable reception point for visitors to Mexico. His view was broad enough to see the importance m first impressions. Be readily comprehended that the great bulk of American travel into Mexico passes through El Paso and Juarez; tint not less important, that hundreds of thousands of tourists never get farther into Mexico than Juarez, and judge the entire country by what they see i here. Diaz wanted to make these first and last impres sions good ones and lasting. He saw the .advertising value ;o all of Mexico, of a fine city at this gateway as the vestibule of the republic. Diaz had given his approval to a project for the erecting of beautiful and adequate federal and state buildings in Juarez, together with schools, hospitals, paved streets, sewerage, modern righting, and other improvements. The revolution came and not only was Diaz's plan abandoned but the warring factions burned up what public buildings Juarez already bad. President Diaz saw instantly the value of a monu mental free bridge as soon as the plan was presented to him the plan is an old one, just now being revived. Much ork was done years ago on the project. Surveys and maps were made, some property needed for rightofway was optioned, the two railways concerned were brought to a point where they were giving the plan careful consideration with all prospects looking toward a favorable decision. But the whole scheme was abandoned when the revolutions put a stop to Mexico's development. Now the opportunity is here once more. The present government of Mexico gives signs of being more stable than any that have preceded it in the ten years of chaos. It expresses willingness and desire to resume neighborly relations with the United States. It asserts its purpose to inaugurate pnbHc improvements. It takes a broader view than its predecessors of Mexico's opportunities and destiny. There is reason to DeJteve war. me present gov ernment would look with favor upon the monumental free bridge project. The American government will interpose no obstacle. Certain formalities will have to be gone through with, but there will be no serious difficulty in obtaining the permis sion of our government whenever the plan takes tangible shape and there seems to be a prospect of international agreement. The logical site for the monumental free bridge is at the foot of South Oregon street. This street will now be opened, since the squatter's lights that blocked the street all these years have bees bought and the street wfH be cut through to the river. South Oregon street is central, run ning to the heart of El Paso's basfaess district. If this street can be extended straight through to Calle Coraereio ,n Juarez it wiH be a mile long and ft can be made one of he show boulevards of the Americas. To extend South Oregon street straight through to the heart of Juarez, slight changes will have to be made in ;he location of both the Mexican railroad lines. The changes on the American side are not difficult- A bridge will have to be shifted. On the Mexican side a new right of way win have to be used for a few hundred yards. The strip of land needed an the Mexican side to shift the railroads and extend the street contains no important improvements and can be had at a reasonable price. It is important that the new international boulevard be straight throughout its length. The monumental free bridge should be built of concrete after as artistic monumental design. It would be a pity :o waste this great opportunity b7 erecting anything but a worthy modern bridge of best design. The bridge must be as wide as the entire street from building line to building line, with ample room for two broad walks, two street car tracks, and two driveways. It should be a two-way bridge of ample dimensions. And the entire boulevard should be brilliantly lighted from San Jacinto plaza in El Paso to CaHe Comercio in Juarez. Planned and befit broadly and modemly, the boulevard and bridge will become a great resort for the people of both countries, a paseo of which we can all be proud. Tour ists will be delighted at the evidence of intimate interna tional cooperation. Commercial bouses win line the street, and it win be a busy place full of picturesque life at all times. Such a project would necessarily induce great improve ments along the river front on both sides of the river. There would be parks and popular resorts. There would be an end of the sqnaHd conditions that prevail, and CHnua hurta would be transformed. Both cities would take pride in this show street, and it would be maintained at the high est standard of beauty and cleanliness. Let the project sot sleep. The chamber of commerce, supported by Oregon street property owners, may as well Initiate the business right new. At best it win take time to work it out, and we cannot start too early. The time is propitious. - Little Interviews. Smelter Lake Is Dangerous; Swimmers Should Be Barred Tourist Sends Friend Here, Then Decides To Come Himself THE smelter lake should aot be used for swimming any more," said Por ter Martin. "The county authori ties or someone near the lake should place eights about its banks explaining that it is a dangerous place to swim and warning people to keep oat of it. Recently there have been a number of persons drowned there. In each case it seems that the swimmers merely get out in the water, cry for help and sink.

They will do all in their power to further this friend ship.' " said Frank Ledbetter. -1 heard that talk and I think that nan meant what he said. But as I was coming back to EI Paso I saw a:i incident which' proved, for me at least that he had failed to study some classes. The street car was filled and many American .women were standing. The car was filled with peons mostly. I saw those American women struggling to hang on the straps while crowded next to tbem were children and old people. Still those stony-faced men kept their seats and let the women stand. Then about six Mexican women got on the car. Very promptly np rose the peons and offered their seats. Asked why they did not do the same for the American women, one told me, 'grln- foes. Why give them a seat? That oesnt look like they desired the friendship of the American people.

THE longer the pact of Versailles goes unratified by the United States, the less likelihood there is that it ever will be ratified in the form submitted by the president. It is evident that the European powers are either unwilling or unable to carry out their own obligations; they make no move to end the wars still going on in Europe and Asia, or to settle the disputes underlying the various interna tional jealousies and hates. The United States is not hindering them from taking what steps they deem best to quiet the uproar. It is plain enough that if the United States had gone into the WHsonian league, or should cow go in, the United States would be expected by all the other powers to assume a degree of responsibility in war and financial reconstruction out of all proportion to this coun try's real obligations. The only way the Wilson faction win be enabled to secure ratification of the pact of Ver sailles win be to elect a president and a majority of the senate. This is unlikely this year, and before another election the Republicans will have found a way to cooperate with the other powers in the interest of the world's peace and reconstruction, without sacrificing vital American principles. The question now before the people for decision is this: Shan America pledge herself to submit her policies to Euro pean censorship, and pledge herself to spend her men and treasure all over the world at Europe's command, or shall America block out her own policies, defend her own rights, and offer aid to the suffering world as her own heart dictates? The Wilson faction asserts that it is the sole guardian of America's honor. There is a difference of opinion about that, and the people will express themselves at the polls. It is not necessary to attach too much importance to W3 sonian insistence that America's word has been pledged; it has not, and it is doubtful if the American people will plan without substantial amendment xne Wilson taction asserts mat America by its vote in the council of the league can veto any proposed act not in accord with American views. But in that case, we should hear the same old talk about violated pledges and a broken word. It is better to refrain from making a promise that cannot be perfectly fulfilled. The people should realize as wen that the vote of any power, member of the council, might also block a plan of action that America might deem vital to her own safety; and in that case, the United States have been rendered, by vicious agree ment, powerless to attend Herself against a coalition. We shall have an international council or court in some form. The adherence of the United States is deemed by all the rest of the world to be vital to the success of any such plan. Let America play her hand for aU it is worth, and not submit -to be dictated to, either by a group of European statesmen or by a factional leader of a minority party in America. The United States is acting honestly now, tnanira to tne senate majority's firmness, and let it continue to act honestly. The American people can trust themselves to act at length in such a way that American inemseives to act at lengtn in sucn a way tnat American interests shaU be protected, American rights defended, and yet so that American aid can be rendered most generously its sore travail. Use Freight Cars. IT IS SAID that we need 700,000 freight cars more than we have, and that it would take more than three years to buHd them, allowing for replacement Could we not get a greater use of the present equipment? We have in the country something Eke 2,400,000 freight cars traveling on on average 6 miles per day. By eliminating terminal con gestion, and by making short hauls with, the aid of the motor truck, we could raise that figure without great dif ficulty to give the equivalent of 600,000 cars. We need more cars, but we need even more to make bet ter use of the cars we have. And we should not neglect to make use of the tool that has come to ns in the form of the motor truck. One remedy for car shortage is to shorten the time of loading and unloading and the time that cars stand idle.

"But I think if I could start over again I would try to be the captain of a big passenger liner so that I could see the world and still travel de luxe. There Is a lot of xncney, education and fun In captaining a big ship. And maybe you can find some treasure some where, or maybe some rich passenger who wanted to get .into your good graces would tip you off to an in vestment where yon could make a fortune.

Ob, yes, nearly every man knows exactly how to rule a woman if she would only let him. According to Paris, everything a woman has on should weigh not more than seven ounces and doubtless, the brain of a woman like that would not add more than as eighth of an ounce to the total. Love, like any other comedy, is staged in three acts. In the first the man makes a fool of himself; In the second, the woman makes a fool of herself; and in the third, one of them makes a fool of the other.
