Anti-Litter Work. Thousands of communities conduct ;lean-up day or weeks, and acconj slish a great' deal in promoting near less. But there is a constant ten- lency for litter to collect. It needs lomething more than a spasmodic ef iort to keep it down.

MeGrane of the New York Merchants' association, writing in the American City, urges communities to irganize anti-litter work as a perma- lent and continuous movement. He sug jests that such an effort be managed r some representative of a commun ity's business association. High school pupils, boy scouts, or other young people could be enlisted to inspect the :ity regularly and report arcumula ;ions of litter. Then the authorities iliould be notified to clean them up, or n many cases real estate owners could e induced to do it. Any city ran be come a spotless town through such an tffort. balem News.

We'll call her "Mrs. Smith" Because she actually lives in town here M R. Smith finally looked up from his eve ning paper. "See here!" he exclaimed. "Why talk to me about it? If the thing doesn't work, call up the electric company and have them fix it." "But, silly, I didn't buy it from the electric company." Mr. Smith overlooked the "silly." "Well, then," he urged, "call up the dealer from whom you bought it." "But I didn't buy it from a local dealer. I bought it from a salesman who came to the door. He was selling direct from the man ufacturer, he said." "H'm r snorted Mr. Smith. "Now that the machine doesn't live up to the promise, the salesman is gone where the woodbine twin elh and the manufacturer is hundreds of miles from here." He took up his paper again. Then hesadded: "I want you to have all the modern con veniences. . I want you to be relieved from all the drudgery of housework. But why waste money? I've told you a score o? times that the local merchants are here in town to stay. They can't flit from town to town. They must give value, service, sat isfaction. "The electric company especially won't sell inferior appliances because it wants you to use the appliances. That company will give you service because it wants to keep you satisfied. Simply good business policy. But take advantage of it my dear. Remem ber, the electric company is right within call 365 days a year. But your electric ap pliances from them." Mr. Smith was right. It is our policy to sell only efficient appliances, to give true value, to stand behind our merchandise. And wc are here in town 363 days a year, right within call.

Lewis said: "We have made this match. There are only a few details to be worked out. You can think what you want about it, but when I meet the champion of the world in the fistic line, he will learn he is meeting the champion of the world in a style of combat that doesnt call for putting on gloves. I do not want to boast, but if 1 am thrown against the firing line with the world's champion pugilist, the people who like sports will get the same shock they received when Siki whipped Carpentier." ' : The date and place of the match I were not announced,. Is America Tongue-Tied? It is not known what instructions have gone forward from our state de partment to Ambassador Child at Lau sanne, but if ther are in line with the historic policy of the United States ! and with the professions of the Re publican party, they will at least di rect him to make a strong protest. It ia not for America to sit silent when base deeds are done. The deliberate proposal to drive a million Greeks out of their ancient home in Asia Minor, under' circumstances which will mean misery for all of them and certain death for many, is one of those crimes against humanity concerning which this government in times past hat had no difficulty in finding its voice. The Republican platform of 1020 declared that "we deeply sympathize with the people of Armenia and stand ready to help them in all proper ways " It is no secret that Mr. Harding after he was elected president but before he took office, sirreed to the sending by President Wilson of a very stiff note protesting against the way in hich the allies were riving way to the demands of the Turks and betray ing the Armenians. If such things could be done in the green tree what shall be done in the dry? If America could eipress her righteous indigna tion over the sporadic maare of the ChrisfJn populations of Turkey, why mut ihe hold her peace when a plan is put forward virtually to extermi nate them? It is said lhat It would be futile to make a solemn protest unless we are prepared to back it up. But there are some moral cries whk-h carry their own force. We should at let have the sstisfaction of obeying our own humane impulses and setting ourselves right in the eyes of the world. More over, there are methods of enforcing a prott without reort to war. A step indicated by the covenant of the league of nations would bA.something like an economic boycott of Turkey. And those bent fitted to understand the nature of the Turks are confident that strong and direct representations by this government would be heeded. However that msy be, it is not a case for too meticulously weighing the consequences of freeing our minds about an act of rmel injustice which is sure to bate trouMeotne interna tional effects. When a man, or a gov ernment, feels impelled to denounce , .wholesale inhumanity, it i not neres-1 sary to stop to inquire too nicety into , inconieniences which msy pwsibly re- : ult.
