German Submarine That Sent U. S. Vessels to Bottom Es caped From Submarines. ONE HUNDRED and forty-five years is a short age for a nation. Compared with countries of the old world, a nation whose birth was less than a century and a half ago is a mere youngster in the great family of nations. And it if one of the miracles of history that a government should in Mich a short span of time develop from a little group of strug gling frontier states into a nation of transcendent position, power and importance. The United States of America has just celebrated her 145th anniversary and the occasion should tie something more than a holiday for picnics and noise-making. It would be more to point, particularly in these reconstruction times, if the observ ances were -of a solemn and serious nature. We Americans who have inherited the institutions built by the blood, toil and wisdom of our forefathers, have come to take them too much for granted. We appreciate their merits and virtues too little and condemn their faults too much. We have tolerated among us too many radicals who forever magnify the evils of our sys tem of government and spread the seed of discontent. We have permitted these preachers of discord to go about unchal lenged when patriotism and self-protection demand that we give them combat combat not with arms but with argument. The most effective weaDon to use aeainst the mouthings of those who would overthrow our government is the simple story of the achievements of that very government. It is no accident .that the United States within the short period of her national existence has risen to the rank of a great power and has established a moral leadership that makes her the dominant force of the world. It is no accident that she outrivals all other nations, even those that are age-old, in wealth and capital, resources and opportunity. It is no acci dent that her people are recognized as the freest on earth, that from her earliest days she has been a haven for the oppressed, the citadel of democracy and the shrine of liberty. It is no af ident that the cause of human rights has progressed in tri rmrh in this country and that we have achieved the nearest approach to a "government of the people, by the people and for the people" that has ever been achieved in all time. All of these things have been because of the fundamental Tightness of bur government, and let those whose confidence is sometimes tr.aken by misgivings remember that truth. The Fourth of July, the natal day of the first republic, should be an occasion, more than any other day, to remind ourselves of the estate our nation has reached because of the firm foundation of principles and ideals upon which her gov ernment is built. ...... A JOB FOR A WOMAN By DAVID T.f. riHT.CH Internatiaonal News Service Staff Correspondent commanders wore relieved of their mvval duty. They came into posses sion of five sailing schooners and went to sea. The naval officers were out ot the navy and apparent owners of sailing vessels, but they retained the commercial title of "skippers" of their schooners. , ' It was a strange coincidence that when these five small schooners put j U sea an American submarine deemed j it wise to follow in the wako of each jschooner. In fact, the schooners ami i the submarines became quite chummy j .so much so that a telephone line was j strung from the schooner to each sub- - murine, which remained below the! : surface all day long-. It Is very proli able that if the U-boat had been sIkM i ed there mlsht have been some tele phoning to the submarine astern. AN ILLINOIS woman has just been appointed "municipal housekeeper" in her town and has entered upon her duties. These do not consist, as might be supposed, in seeing that the city buildings are kept clean within, but in see ing that no accumulation of rubbish or filth is allowed to dis figure the city streets, alleys and vacant lots. Ihis duty lor merly devolved upon the police, but the city fathers decided that "the touch of a woman's hand" would help matters. Whatever may be said concerning the home as .woman's fcphere, there can be little argument over the statement that most women are by birth and training better housekeepers than most men, and the application of their talent to civic tidiness is practised too little. Cities, like houses, will not stay clean. They must be kept so, and this is a matter of daily atttention. With a trained feminine eye and hand at the head of this work, a year-round "spotless town" should be the result. Under a new schedule effective July 1, the minimum charge for gas at Astoria is $1 per thousand cubic feet; in Pen dleton the rate is $2 per thousand and the gas has an odor that almost drives people out of their houses. fans Christian Smuts is one of the world's able men; if he has a fair chance he may bring about peace in Ireland.

Hidden away in the archives of the great grey Navy building here are hundreds of romances and adventures ot' the seas which may never come to light. In steel bound files are the records of successes and of failures during the vorld war which swclleI the hearts of seafaring men with pride and caused them to tear their hair in anguish. I At night time the submarine com Derhaps the most romantic records ! ma riders brought their craft to the concern the activities of the United ,' surface, and their good friends on States navy against the German V-1 board the schooners loaded them bouts, records which have never been 'down with gifts of food supplies and opened to the public. ; fuel. With the recent sinking of the T -117 off Cape Charles by aerial Uim; ers, there has come to light the story cf a great disappointment to thj Amc-ii-an navy. The U-117 left Kiel on June 12. 191? ; under command of a German, who is hel eved to have served as a gunner's 1'ittte in the United States navy at one time. Apparently well versed on co.i-1 diuons in American waters, this U- bor.t captain turned her toward Lie; shores of the United Slates. From , ' One pair of the.se strange marine i "pals" was dragging along in a calm i or f the Virginia Capes in midsummer. IHIS. The submarine had been on the ; suriaoo till nearly daybreak, and the 'former naval officer in the schooner had been up all night tending to the wants of his friends in the submarine. So at daybreak he turned in for a short sleep, and the submarine op ened her submerging valves and went below. a dale late in June until early in Sep- I teinl or the IV IX 7 was a menace t.i I American and foreign shipping off; the coasts of the North Atiartic. .Mines were sown by the U-117 from.

American naval of- j ficers desired to outfit some of these mystery ships, but it Is understo'.d that Woodrow Wilson Intervened, holding that Riich vessels were a vio lation of International law. This was the first bitter disappointment to those charged with making a defense against the submarines. The U-117 was continually report ed to the navy department as still act ive in American waters, smiting schooners and sowing mines. The navy was nonplussed. yuiei Search of the Si'ns Quietly and without ostentation five sleep, of the duties. and the Scandinavian skipper schooner went about his usunl Just before noon the submarine commander telephoned to the schoon er, assing if all was clear for him to bring his vessel to the surface t give the crew a bit of fresh air. The skip per of the schooner telephoned back for the submarine to eome up. The submarine was hardly on the surface before there was a distant boom; the bark astern was seen to turn her tall upward and sink, and to ward trie schooner there came scurry ing through the ocean what was un mistakably a submarine.' She had not sighted the American submarine. Tfe American submarine com mander was hack to his vessel In o twinkling.

The skipper of the T schooner was sharply called to ac- j X count for his failure to report the bark and the vessel alongside. He maintained that lie had believed It to be a small tug towing the bark. After the armistice, when the nnvy depurtment secured the V-117 togeth er with its log, it was learned that the i J U-boat commander recorded this as his most narrow escape In American It waters. ;Z It is small wonder that there was ! grim satisfaction on the ' faces of watching naval officers a few weeks ago when the U-117 turned her tall I j to the clouds and took her Inst dive, an ignominious end, sunk by aerial bombers while anchored as a helpless target. And so another chapter of the dis appointments of the sea was closed. m. DOINGS OP THE DUFFS TOM HAS A HARD LIFE. BY ALLMAN HAD WE THIfJS& TC GET If Wi ST"RTOM .UR VACAT.OM 'Jfc'U HAVE TO DO SOME .
