Let the Try th Prevail!
Ford Advertises
War is not an opinion, it is a fact.
Man has two appetites which arc also facts. These
appetites may be satisfied, but they can never be
balked nor destroyed.
Over-population is the result of one of them. The
exchange of food products, or commerce between
nations is the result of the other. War follows both.
Henry Ford has i hunch that "preparedness"
causes Avar. He wants to stop the present prepared
ness plans of congress. He is trying to wish his
opinion on the rest of us. lie is willing to spend
several million dollars to convert us. He is print
ing his opinion—as a paid advertisement—in many
leading newspapers and magazines. Whoever pre
pared the copy did a neat bit of literary work. It's
easy to read. And the printers are paid to set it up
in fine large type, also easy to read. And these are
two good reasons why lots of people will read it.
BUT-FORD'S OPINION DEALS WITH
THE SURFACES and not with the depths of
militarism and preparedness.
He speaks of armies and armaments, of taxes
and of miseries —but never of the fundamentals
of war.
He ignores propagation of > races, national
psychology and international commercial fric
tion which always start the war torch blazing.
Nobody's opinion will make a silver whistle from
a sow's ear. Nor will Henry Ford's opinion of war
and its cure ever make him an authority worth lis
tening t<» on war and its causes.
Hut that is the problem of the United States,
whether Ford sees it or not.
"You cannot haggle with ait earthquake," said
Lloyd-<M'orge to the English munition workers. Tn
this classic sentence he condenses all that is inevit
ahle in war, and all that is futile in pacificism.
Iford asks us to haggle with the inevitable up
heavals of races.
He urges every American to protest against pre
paredness.
We urge every American to support prepared
ness.
It is tinip to put aside the sentimentalist's theories
about a world as we want it.
We must live in the world as it is, with man as he
is, ruled by his two great appetites.
Why a Cold Is a Menace
Colds do not "turn into" pneumonia, bronchitis or consumption.
They weaken the tissues In |M_rtlcular and the Ixsly in general, so
that the germs of pneumonia, bronchitis and consumption, which are
quite different from from the colli gernvs, find easy entrance to the
ha man system.
Somebody Wakes Up
Well, well! The park board has decided to spend
a little of its money on recreational features in Point
Defiance park!
The world do move.
It is now proposed to build, presumably for this
coming season, an athletic park east of the carl me
near the entrance.
A baseball field, a basketball court, a race course
and other game facilities are to be provided.
That is fine. It is exactly the sort of thing for
which The Times has been contending these many
months.
Tf we had our way in the'.nattor we would make
only one change in the board's plan. We'd take the
$4,000 which the board is going to sink in paving the
road to the point and invest it also in more tennis
courts and play fields.
Point Defiance park does not need concrete and
asphalt paving half so much as it does facilities for
_!_£ .
FRECKLES AND HIS FRIENDS
War Economy
Prosperity and the high cost of living generally
travel together.
Therefore the most thoughtful of the woman's
magazines of the day are placing considerable em
phasis on the increasing necessity for the American
women to study economy.
Prominent English women are making the same
preachment.
Among the English apostles of war economy is
Flora Annie Steele who lias written more success
ful novels than any woman of her time, with the ex
ception of Marie Oorclli.
Mrs. Steele knows that increased domestic econ
omy means more work for housewives.
I hit she also believes that women should under
take this extra worl_ in a willing spirit and not look
upon it as a hardship.
Speaking of hovel writing and housework, she
says, "I have done every kind of servant's work in
my own house and have found it light beyond com
parison."
Thousands of American women who work,, for
wages will agree with Mrs. Steele.
Most of them have a home of some kind to keep in
order and some dependent person, parent, invalid
or child to cook for.
They know that housework is not a hardship and
that the average woman could and should do a little
more of it, if this prosperity era is to have any per
manent effect upon the welfare of the nation.
Confessions of_. Wife
THi': in ii.i; tkXom
ooi) OF MUUMI
/ ______
I've a perfectly terrible confes
sion to make to you, little book.
.lust now I am thinking more
about Malcolm Stuart than any
one else in the world.
That was a very clever idea on
his part to pique my onrioslty by
not giving me an address where
I could either send the little god
bark or at least thank him for it.
, "Somewhere in the Orient,"
little book, is a man who evident
ly thinks of me occasionally. He
certainly can still make himself
"the most interesting man" to
me.
I have heen keeping the little
Jade god under my pillow and do
you know, little bok, that some
times when I take it in my hand
the calm countenance seems al
most to want to tell me some
thing.
Jim Edie came to see me yes
terday and wns very enthusiastic
over DJck.
' "I tell you what, Margie," he
said, "1 hate like the deuce to
have you in this condition, but it
Is just fine to have old Dick
around again. We have gone
back to our old chummy days
when we confided to each other
our ambitions and dreams."
"Have either of you still
dreams, Jim? I can understand
that you might still have ambi
tions. But dreams! You both
are older than I and for me
dreams are fled."
The moment I said that that
little jade god Blipped down into
my sight from under the pillow
and I felt myself coloring, for I
knew that what I had just said
had been a He. I still have
dreams, little bok, and I expect
that the little jade god knows
more about them than even you
or I.
Someway I am getting an un
canny feeling about that lit* I- -
jade god. Last night I was look
ing at it and admiring the won
derful detail of the carving when
all at once I seemed to see a
yacht skimming along on a moon
lit sea. On the deck was a man
ln white which the tropic moon
made almost lustrous.
He was alone and his two thin
lil>_ were pressed closely together,
making only a scarlet line.
(Talk Comes Mighty Cheap With Slim I)
THE TACOMA TIMEB
For a long time he sat quite
still in the steamer chair that
was drawn close to the rail, but
he did not seem to be seeing .the
path of silver that led up from
the side of the boat to hearen it
self.
He finally got up with an Im
patient sigh and opening a tightly
closed hand disclosed lying in the
palm the twin to my littls- jade
god. » _
With a bitter lifting of the thin
lips into what might have been a
smile of derision for himself, he
made as though to throw the bau
ble of superstition into his pocket.
Slowly the picture faded. I
opened my eyes, but I am sure I
had not been asieep.
Tightly clasped in my hand was
the bit of carved jade.
I too would have been tempted
to throw it far out into the street
if I could have gotten to my win
dow, but as I could not I slipped
the little god, who evidently was
the god of dreams as well as good
luck under my pillow, and went
to sleep to dream no mors.

OOCOANITT OIL MAKES
A SPLENDID SHAMPOO
If you want to keep your halr ln
good condition, be carsful what
you wash it with.
Most soaps and prepared sham
poos contain too much alkali.
This dries the scalp, makes the
hair brittle, and Is very harmful.
Just plain mulsified cocoanut oil
(which is pure and entirely
greaseless), Is much better than
the most expensive soap or any
thing else you can use for sham
pooing, as this can't possibly In
jure the halr.
Simply moisten your halr with
water and rub it In. One or two
teaspoonfuls will make an abund
ance of rich, creamy lather, and
cleanses the hair and scalp thor
oughly. The lather rinses out
easily and removes every particle
of dust, dirt, dandruff and exces
sive oil. The halr drlea quickly
and evenly, and It leaves It fine
and silky, bright, fluffy and easy
to manage.
You can get mulsified cocoanut
oil at most any drug store. It la
very cheap, and a few ounces ii
enough to last everyone In the
family for months. adv.

Mr. Porter had recently become
the father of twins. One after
noon the minister, called to con
gratulate him.
"Well, sir," said the minister.
"I hear that the Lord has smiled
on you."
"Smiled on me?" repeated
Porter. "Why, man, he laughed

Q. —I am 19 years old. A very hoporable, -well-to-do young
man, one year my senior, is ln love with me. Do you think If I _>
really tried, ln time I could learn to love htm? I care nothing
about him at the present time except as a friend. D. E.
A.—Why try? The tender plant of love will not stand forcing
It soon becomes the victim of blight and withers away*
Q- —Does modesty and just being good ever pay a girl? My
chum and I would like you to answer this question. Miss Orey.
Our friends never call upon us a second time. We make a good to
Impression on them, but when It comes to being kissed good
night we lose out, because we do not permit it. We are con
sidered very good company, until they get sentimental. They
put us to the test and we are found lacking. Now we aslc, does
it pay, If we must live alone all our lives?
TWO GOOD BUT LONELY GIRLS.
A.—Ye*. <l<w girls, it IMMOH pay, just how much yon will never
realize unless you should burter your nelf-re_|»eict for a little cheap
sentimentality. To a certain extent everyone lives alone. One's
real life is tbaMhe lives with liiiiiH..|r. How much better, then, n^
have -«.f-r<'x|MM™innl a pure conscience, than all the Inferior com
panions In the world. Modesty and "just being good" do i»ay.
There's a lot of life In which they are the very Ik_l Investment.
Q. —Recently I became acquainted with a nice young lady
and called on her once, but when I went again her sister met me
and told me she was 111 and could see no one. I did not believe
X, and got very angry, thinking she did not wish to Bee me.
Now I have Just found outihat she was very ill for several weeks. .
I am ashamed of myself and feel that I did wrong. 1 think of
her all the time. Do you think I could call on her again?
L. K.
A.—lt would be well to write the young lady a note, telling her
frankly of I lie mistake you made, and asking permission to call. You
evidently hud very little faith in the truth of your friend or in your
own ability to please on your first ap|>earanre. Hereafter, of MM
you will not be so quick to take offense and will he a Utile more sin
cere in your self-esteem. ■
q.—Can you tell me who is the author of the "Cyclopedia
of Social Usage," who publishes it and the price per copy?
IONATIO.
A.—Helen |_ HobertN Is the author of the book and it Is pub
lished by 0. IL Cumuli's Sons, New York city. It costs *l '»<>■
' Q. —It has been the custom in our high school for the *
graduates to exchange pictures with the entire class. It is im
possible for a girl to know personally every boy in the class, so
! why should she give everyone her picture My parents object
! to me giving my photograph to any except very good friends.
What do you think about it, Miss tirey?,
LORRAINE.
A.—lv very large classes Ibis custom Is not observed. WUfe
every member of the class should lie tkjkmnt with courtesy there Is"
no reason why such an Intimate thing as a lecture should lie given
out promlscuousl). The expense, too, has hecn a factor In dlscourag
! ing this practice.
