DISARMAMENT WOULD SAVING OF, HALF DOLLAR LLIQN YEARLY, IS CLAIM J The Novelty Silk and Trimming Store 165 Fairfield Ave., Bar. 2255 We do pieatings and liemstitch . Buttons made from your own material in 57 different styles. By HARRY It. ROGERS International News Service Staff Correspondent Washington, Aug. 5 Half a billion dollars yearly can be saved to the United States almost immediately if the disarmament conference to be held in Washington this fall approve the plan of the Harding administra tion for substantial reduction in arm aments, according to military and na val experts here. Enthusuasts, who may be correct, place the saving which reasonably may be expected to result from the proposed curtailment of the naval and military establishments as high as one billion dollars annually. Accepting the lower figure, the sum saved to the taxpayers of the United States for a period of 150 years, compound ed every live years at five per cent., would considerably exceed twelve hundred billions, or more than four times the total estimated wealth of the United States toSay. In the year 1920 five great nations Great Britain, the United States, France, Italy and Japan spent for military and naval purposes $16,442, 251,101. This sum is a little over $2, 000.000,000 more than all those na tions together expended for military purposes in the 14 years extending from 1900 to 1914. It has been esti mated that in- order to pay for the tremendous armaments now in con templation a tax equivalent to $10 for every man, woman and child In the world would have to be levied. "War the Greatest Drain Of the billions of dollars raised each year by every conceivable sort of taxation more than 90 per cent, goes either to prepare for future wars or to. pay the expenses of wars that have already been fought. To be more specific, statistics show that out of every dollar raised by taxation 92 cents is spent for things resulting irom or appertaining to war. The cost of the World War alone. both in lives and in money, is almost beyond realization. Tirty millions or people perished by weapon, bv gas, disease or hunger, to say nothing of ether millions who were biinded or maimed: and It has been estimated that if an earthquake should swallow up the whole United States it could aestroy no more wealth than was con sumed in that world eonnaaratlon. Although the United States entered tne war somewhat later than the other nations its expenses were great er during the comparatively short pe riod of its participation than in all the preceding 128 years of its hlstorv. In December. 1918, the month follow ing the signing of the armistice, our expenditures were greater than for all that period of 72 years before the Civil War. During the single month of December we expended each day more money than in the first 11 years or our nationhood. The following figures cast' interest ing light upon the manner in which expenditures for armament have in creased in the United States: In 18 50 the per capita expenditure was $1.77: in I860, $2.01: in 1870, $7.G1: in 18S0, $5.28; Ui 1890, $4.75; in 1900, $6.39; in 1910. $7.30, an.d in 1919. $144.77. Education Figures Tjcast In the fiscal year ending June 30 1920, the appropriations for the na tional government aggregated $5 186.675,000. or tnis sum there was expended, for the War and Navy De partments. $1,424,138,667, Or 25 per cent, of the entire amount; $3,855.- 000.000, or 67 per cent, went for pre vious wars, in the way of pensions etc. For primary functions of gov ernment $181,000,00 was expended, or about 3.2 per cent, of the whole. For Dublic works of every description the government paid out $168,000,000 For research and educational devel opment this nation lavished the sum of $57,093,660. or 1.001 per cent, of the whole sum expended. In other words, for the various de partments of research, for the incul cation of the principles of good citi zenship, for the Americanization of foreign elements and for such other educational work as the government supports wholly or in part the United States appropriated one per cent, while for wars, past and expect- ea, nearly ss per cent. Most Pay for Past Wars Many American statesmen, assert that If the coming conference shall prove as successful as it is reasona ble to expect the proportions of our future expenditures will be reversed; that for ordinary government func tions, for good roads. Dublic build ings, capacious harbors, irrigation projects, reclamation of swamp lands, pensioning the aged, educational work, scientific research, - and the like, we shall expend 93 per cent, of m wnoie, ana .tor the armament of such a police force as may be de cided upon, 7 per cent. It is recog nized that thig objective cannot be fully attained for many yeears, how ever, for the wars of the past must first be settled for. President Harding and Seeretarv of State Hughes are indulging in no Utopian dreams as to what mar be accomplished, but are proceeding about their task In a thoroughly practical and business-like way. They Know that complete disarmament is not possible in the present day and age, but they believe that If the great powers of the world get round a table and face the facts squarely they can come to some agreement wnicn win make possible a material reauction in armaments, thus enabl ing the various governments to lift rrom tne shoulders of the people i part of the enormous burden of tax. ation which they now bear.

NATION IS NOT OVING INTO HOTELS rf-nliiTnlhim. O.. Aug. 5 "On'rv the inability to build homes fast enough to supply the aemanas Keeps a big majority of the American families from owning tneir own Domes," oe clared James A. Devine, secretary of the Ohio Building Association League, when told that hotel men in the United States had predicted the pass ing of the American home.. F. G. Bothwell, natoinal secretary of the hotel men's organization, at a convention Just concluded, stated that "the renaissance of cliff dwellers is cominsr." He declared the old-fash ioned American home is passing along with the horse and in due time will be exhibited along with toe stuffed dodo bird and the egg of the auk. People are moving into hotels, according to Bothwell. Not so, according to Secretary De- vine, of the building and loan organi zation. "Ohio is soon to witness tne greaest home-building boom in its history, he declared. "Every effort of the eight hundred building and loan institutions in Ohio during the next year is to. be turned to home build ing." Devine declared that the home shortage in Ohio has reached serious proportions. "The public will realize within the next year Just what inestimable value to any community is a well-organized building programme. Devine said the American home would never pass out of existence. "Instead the' nation is becoming one of home owners," he declared. Mantler's Baby Shop Bar. 2378 NEEDLEWORK 8 P. O. ARCADE BABY WANTS 7 P. O.
