EDITORIAL PAGE THE TACOMA TIMES — _— ___ j _^ Here's One Battle You Can Read About Without Getting the Willies For heaven's sake, don't let the honorable warlike Japs get hold of this true story 1 The other day, some movie picture fellows down at San Diego wanted a battle scene $1.50, --000 worth. They rigged up the old whaler How head to imitate a German battleship, filled her with sand and rocks, and lowed her out behind San Clemente island for the U. S. Pacific flag ship San Diego and two destroyers to go at. (Ice! but that old Bowhead did look fierce rocking to and fro out there, with her rakish masts defying the enemy, her wooden funnels WHEN? WHAT? WHY? It is evident that Uncle Sam has got to fame bonds, and it is not wholly improbable that he has got to issue the most delightsome bonds he ever put out in times of peace. Sooner or later, those allies are coming over again with a lot of bonds to yield 5V_ per cent, perhaiw more. Will there not be competition between foreign and American bonds, in this country 1 If aU. S. bond at 4' g per cent is not worth so much as an Anglo-oFreneh bond at 83 - are we patriotic 1 per cent's worth'? How high profit has Uncle Sam got to grant in order to make his bonds sell in competition with the high profit-paying foreign bonds? When high profits are to come in the pork, wheat, bond or any other market, hang on to your money! Observe the banks! MUST BE SOMETHING NEW King Constantino rises to remark that he's going to "de fend the integrity of Greece at all hazards." With allied troops using Greek ports and mads and with that treaty with Servia a mere scrap of paper, Constantino owes the world his definition of "integrity." j With steamy, dusty housework, or stuffy, $ Z tiresome office work—or any other toil? \ Just reach far your package of WRIGLEY'S | £ —and take a fresh start! !§ 5 It will soothe and cool your mouth and £ throat, quench your thirsty steady your £ stomach and nerves, help your appetite gj and digestion.

You could almost hear a crew on her yelling "Hoch der Tirpitz!" and you held your breath as the mighty San Diego came slipping around the corner of the island, stripped for action, or at least partly undressed. Boom! At"12,000 yards the 8-inch guns of the San Diego have knocked the villainous Bow head's wooden aftermast and first smoke stack into kindling wood. When you rip into a wooden enemy with 8-inch guns, the effects are usually THOUGH THE MILLS OF GOD GRIND SLOWLY, YET THEY GRIND EXCEEDING SMALL; THOUGH WITH PATIENCE HE STANDS WAITING, WITH EXACTNESS GRINDS HE ALL. —YON LOGAU THE TACOMA TIMES 3_; . • THE FINE SPIRIT OF A NEW CHAMP William M. Johnston, new national tennis champion, on being interviewed, says: "I found the weather to my liking and all conditions combined in my favor. This made it possible for me to ob tain the best form I have ever reached since I took op tennis. * * * * In Justice to Maurice McLaughlin, whom I de feated, I must say that he was slightly off his game." This modest statement marks tile new boy champion as good a sportsman as he is a tennis player. Keep it up through life, son, and* it will bring you more real satisfaction than all the victories you may win. And be sides it's the spirit that helps win victories. MULTUM IN PARVO? Collier's, with or without outside aid, gets off this real good one: The New York Tribune headlines an account of young Rockefeller'■ thrilling adventures in Colorado. "John I). Jr. grins in greasy garni." Collier's transposes the sentence to read, "John 1). Jr. garbs in greasy grin," presenting an ex ample of the art of saying much in little reduced to the nth degree. ROMANCES OF SOME PRESIDENTS No. 4. Love Tragedy That Made Bucha nan the Only White House Bachelor James Uuchanan, the only bachelor president the CnltiJ States ever had, remained un wedded all his life becauso of a love tragedy In hi ß youth. Buchanan when 28 year* olf became engaged ot Anne 0 Cole» man, daughter of a rich resident of Lancaster, Pa. The beautiful girl was of a very sensitive, retiring nature, although endowed with great HÄ« termination and pride. The course of love ran smooth ly for the engaged couple for some little time and then certain people began to gossip about a very small matter. As the story passed from mouth to mouth it became exaggerated and the sensitive girl grieved deeply over the matter. Finally she sent yotint? Bu chanan a note, breaking off the engagement. The matter—so trivial a one — might have been patched up at _nic fut"re time, but shortly CONFESSIONS OF A WIFE I thought a long time over the telegram I should send to Dick. At first I thought I would call him !up by telephone, but I did not I relish quarreling at long distance I confess I was annoyed at : Dick's peculiar way of disposing , of my money, but I have come to i ill- conclusion that no husband i <an quite understand that a wifeV [ money belongs to herself quite a much as ills money belongs to , himself. Sometimes I think in th>9 i I'tapian days that may come in the future, a woman may always , have her income, either earned or from her own investments. Of this, she will pay a part toward I the household expenses—and for I the children just as the husband does. Each shall have certain fixed charges on his income and each shall have the disposal of the remainder without any criti cism from the other. I know that Dick considers that he gives me the $200 a month that has been my allowance alnce we went to housekeeping. And J since I lent him that $2,500 I I know he thinks he has been giv ing me too much. He says: "If ; Margie can save that why should I I mafas bar allowance so large?"

The San Diego, as if enraged, dashes upon her at top speed, pouring in shot from both 8 and o inch batteries as she comes. Boom! boom! boom! and the Bowhead is a mere hulk. But, defiantly, she refuses to sink and her sand and rocks are still intact. She takes fire! But this doesn't worry her; she still hangs on to her sand and rocks. But, darn her!

And, as soon as the cheers of victory die awaj, she drifts off the beach into 15 fathoms of water and sinks when she gets good and ready. 'Twas a famous victory. The San Die,go gun ners got some good practice and the movie folks got a furious battle scene, as we'll see later in Tacoma, maybe. What's that? You want to know why the sand and rocks—Why, they were put in to keep the Bowhead from flying away, or sinking at first fire!
