INSTÁMT O W FOSTUM A BEVERACI www Woüld Disarm German Science Still Menace to Peace Unless Checkmated by Intelligence of Other Nations. BOGERT POINTS OUT DANGER Scientist Declares What Country Needs Is a Well-Organized Chemical War. fare Service Exports Should Be Regulated. Wilmington, Del. How German sci ence, unless checkmated by the intel ligence of other nations, still will men ace the peace of the world, was told by' Dr. Marston T. Bogert of Colum bia university in an address, "Sci ence and Disarmament," delivered be fore the Delaware section of the American . Chemical society. Doctor Bogert said that in chemical matters disarmament both for Ger many and the allies must provide for the definite reduction and control of the coal supply, of the fixation of atmospheric nitrogen, which is the mother substance of all explosives, and also the reduction of the synthetic dye plants which are the sources of all poison gases and the actual man ufacturers of most of the explosives used in war. Regulate Exports. "Exports of all such substances," continued Doctor Bogert, "should be carefully regulated, for export trade is the familiar excuse for the main tenance and expansion of . colossal plants of Jatent war possibilities. The same disarmament commission might be very keen for the dismantling of the Krupp establishment at Essen, and yet not bat an eye over the continu ance and expansion of mammoth ar senals, camouflaged as dye factories or agricultural chemical works, al though the actual military damage inflicted upon Germany might be much greater were the dye and nitro gen factories destroyed than if the Essen plant were razed. "For example," asserted Doctor Bo gert, "if the allies fail to reduce di rectly the present German supremacy in synthetic dye and nitrogen fixation plants, there will be no safety for this country until we have a development of those vital industries here superior to that of Germany." The Columbia scientist took excep-1 tlon to the view of General March, chief of staff of the United States army, who in opposing the extension of the chemical warfare service said that he would "keep those" substances used in the manufacture of poison gas from being imported Into Germany, and thus keep down the poison gas output. The speaker said that from such simple substances as salt, coke or charcoal and air, could be manufac tured phosgene and chlorine. "AH that is necessary, therefore," observed Doctor Bogert, ironically, "is to remove from Germany all the salt underground or close the salt mines, and to exclude Germany from access to, the ocean; to place a similar ban upon the sulphur mines and the smelt ing of sulphur ores; to Interdict the raising of sugar beets and other sac charifereous crops, and to cut down all the forests since cellulose, which is obtained from these sources, can be converted Into alcohol. As all mod ern warfare depends upon nitric acid and as nitric acid is now being made from the nitrogen of the air, it is equally clear that this manufacture can be easily and completely stopped by excluding the atmosphere also from Germany. Except for these slight objections, the plan Is doubt less an admirable one." Chemical Warfare in Infancy. Doctor Bogert declared that in or der to cope successfully with a nation having such skill .in chemistry as has Germany, it would be necessary to Goes Back to 1 C ' ' ;; I rC ' I 1 ' IT U 1 1 V? kL 'X . . ! úr -i This nature-loving Oregonian has picked out this natural platform in a big tree on the edge of a small town and plans to build a house on it. GETS KING'S SUIT ANNUALLY Great Ceremony Marks Historic Cus tom on Epiphany Day in Spain. Madrid. Great ceremony attends the gift of the suit of clothes worn by the king of Spain on Epiphany day, to which suit the duke of Aliaga, count of Rivadavia, possesses the he reditary right. This he Inherited from an ancestor of the fifteenth century, who obtained have in this country a well-developed chemical warfare service. The speak er was of the opinion that chemical warfare was yet in Its infancy, and that after it had run its course the military art might also invoke medical and biological warfare, which could be done by the dissemination of germs and disease. He therefore maintained that the military efficiency of the future would depend in large measure upon science. "Most fundamental of all, however," he concluded, "for all else rests upon it, Is an intelligent grasp by our peo Indians Call on Thirty-five Indians, some of them in tribal costume, called at the White House to recommend the appointment of Thomas L.

More on Luxury Than Education Americans Spend More in One Year for Luxuries Than in 300 Years for Education. WE ARE A PAMPERED NATION United States Commissioner of Educa . tion Gives Some Startling Fig ures on a Great American Delu sion Face Powder Costs. Washington, D. C. P. P. Claxton, commissioner of education, exposes in a formal statement what he considers the great delusion of the American people namely, that from time im memorial they have strained their purse strings in behalf of learning and that the public schools elementary, secondary and higher constitute our chief financial burden. In a formidable array of figures Mr. Claxton shows that the people of the United States spent more for luxuries in the single year 1920 than has been spent on education in the 300 years which practically cover the entire his tory of the country. Educational Costs for Fifty Years. "In 1918, the last year for which complete reports have been compiled," says the statement, "we spent in the Live in the Trees the grant from the then king of Cas tile, Juan II., who changed suits with the duke's forbear on the battlefield of Rivadavia, where the king was in danger1 of being captured by his vic torious enemies, but succeeded in es caping in his vassal's suit. The state coach, accompanied by royal footmen In ancient liveries and bearing staves, conveys the suit to the Madrid palace of the duke, who receives it with due deference and adds It to the considerable museum he possesses, which forms a historical ple and government of what is an im mensely powerful factor. That is, the scientific development which makes for the progress of civilization and upon which, to a vast extent, the safety of the country is dependent. Without such a general understanding, it will be difficult or impossible to awaken our fellow countrymen to the menace of our unpreparedness in such matters, so as to secure that wide spread education and Individual pro ficiency in science which Is our safe guard. With it, there will be no dif ficulty, whatsoever, in getting con gress to enact such legislation as will foster and stimulate not only our sy thetic dye and nitrogen industries, but also our chemical warfare and air services. Such action will have an Immediate and far-reaching beneficial effect upon the entire course of our development in science, at a time when the world ""is looking to us for a lead in such matters." . the President V vWwriV-"iVftrJQSf-f vi ffri v i'iVi if- United States for public' education, elementary and secondary, $762,259, 154; for normal schools for the train ing of teachers, $20,414,689 ; for higher education in the colleges, universities and professional and technical schools, whether supported by public taxation or privately endowed, $137,055,415. The grand total was $919,729,258. In the 50 years from 1870 to 1920, 1 we paid for public elementary and high schools $12,457,484,563; for normal schools, $291,111,232 ; for higher educa tion in tax-supported and privately en dowed colleges, universities and tech nical schools, $1,804,200,272, a total of $14,552,796,037 for the 50 years. "For the years preceding 1870: $2,000,000,000 for public elementary and secondary schools, $3,000,000 for normal schools and $150,000,000 for higher education would be very liberal estimates. Adding these to the totals given will make a grand total of about $14,500,000,000 for public elementary and secondary schools, $295,000,000 for normar schools and $1,950,000,000 for higher education, approximately $16,645,000,000 for public schools, ele mentary, secondary, norma! schools and higher education in schools of all kinds from the beginning of our his tory until 1920. "Making all due allowances for defective returns, the total amount spent for public education In 1918, In cluding current expenditures for pri vate and endowed colleges and univer sities, qnd all expenditures for capital investment in buildings and equip ment, was less than a billion of .dol Jars. According to government re turns for 1920, the people of the United States spent for luxuries in that year $22,700,000,000; more than twenty-two times as much as they spent for educa tion only two years before, and $6,000, 000,000, or 30 per cent, more than we have spent for education in all our history.
