The dictionary gives various meanings to the word, including "snap pish bark, yelp, gab, to talk noisily, to chatter, to scold." Also, as seen by the foregoing "pome," Yap suggests many rhymes. Including "map, Jap, scrap." Anyway, the is land, In Itself as inconsequential as its name, is now on the map to stay. As to Jap and scrap that Is a story yet to be told. Before the World war, you see, the United States enjoyed direct cable communication with China by way of Yap, then a German possession. Dur ing the war Japan diverted the cable routes with the result that American business and press dispatches must now be sent by way of Manila. On November 9, 1920, the United States called the attention of the pow ers to Its understanding that Yap was not to be included In the mandate to Japan, but was to be international ized as a cable station. Yet In December, 1920, the council of the League of -Nations, controlled by the allied powers, approved the north Pacific mandate, with Yap In cluded. Now the United States not only holds-invalid the disposition, without its consent, of any of the territories ceded by the central empires to the allied and associated powers, but pointedly suggests reconsideration of the action, in defiance of American protest, approving the award to Japan of the mandate for Yap and other north Pacific islands. This is the substance of the Ameri can note to Great Britain, France, It aly, and Japan, now made public by Secretary of State Hughes. His argument is that the Ameri can interest in these territories derives from American participation In the victory over the central powers; that this Interest Is recognized not only In the Versailles treaty, but in the mandate terms ; that President Wilson, in the sessions of the supreme coun cil, made the reservation that Yap should be internationalized, and that the council's allocation of Yap to Ja pan is not binding on the United States, because this nation has not ratified the Versailles treaty, under authority of which such allocation was made. "It is a cause of regret to this gov ernment," the Hughes note says, "that after and despite this protest, there should have been any attempt to pass upon drafts of mandates purporting to deal with the Pacific islands, in cluding Yap, and that a mandate should have been approved, or at tempted to be put into effect, which, while purporting to be made in the name of the United States, was with out the assent of the United States.

Of course, there is more or less feel ing in both the United States and Japan. Viscount Uchlda, foreign min ister of Japan, has officially declared that his government will stand firmly on Its mandate over the North Pacific Islands, formerly owned by Germany. It seems to be the general opinion of the Japanese newspapers that "the United States Is in no position to in terfere, because It has not ratified the peace treaty and has not entered the League of Nations." It is not to be denied that the con troversy over Yap, in connection with matters in China and Siberia, is a danger spot. But any talk of war be tween the United States and Japan over Yap is mostly "yap." The plain truth of the matter Is that it is probably impossible for America and Japan to resort to war with the hope of a decisive victory. The two countries are too far apart. It would strain the resources even of the United States successfully to In vade Japan. Japan could not success fully Invade the United States. Neith er country has the men or the ships necessary for such an invasion. A country that must fight an enemy sev eral thousands of miles across the sea Is at a disadvantage almost hopeless. Japan, In a purely defensive war, Is the most powerful country on earth except America. It is this military deadlock between America and Japan that explains many things that otherwise would puzzle the student of Oriental affairs. It ex plains the Japanese attitude toward the California situation. Japan knows It cannot use force to change that con dition. The astute reader will also see its bearing upon the Siberian sit uation, the Shantung incident at the peace conference and our former "open-door" policy in China. America nnd Japan are therefore still in the stage of diplomatic amenities where they are likely to remain for a long time. Incidentally, if Japan should decide to make war on the United States, she . would presumably strike without warning, as she did in the Russo-Japanese war. Japan is not difficult to understand. with It when he came away, but some folks were advising 'em to go into the op'ry business and show it around the fairs in a tent, and others thought they ort to elect it to the legislature."

The Germnn-owned island north of the equator, turned over to Japan by the mandate, include the Marianne or La- drone, the Marshall and the Caroline groups from north to south ; they form a sort of strategic semi-circle around the Philinnines. The Carolines, of which Yan Is one. number 700 islands, most of which are small atolls. Their total area Is about 560 square miles. The principal Islands are Babel thouap, 106 square 1 miles and 10,000 population ; Ponape, 134 ana auw , Yen. 70 and 2,750: Kuk, au ana iü,uw Knsalc. 45 and 400. The Carolines were discovered In 1527 by Diego da Rocha, a Portuguese, who named them the bequieras. in ifiSR Admiral Francesco Lazeano gave them their present name in honor of his king, Charles II of bpain. David O'Keefe of Savannah, Ga, recalled the existence of the Carolines to the civilized world In 1873. He was shipwrecked and cast up on Yap. Thereupon he married a native woman nnri nrnplalmed himself king of Yap. Spain ousted this self -proclaimed king of Yap. About this time Germany cast covet ous eyes on the Carolines, recognizing their strategic position as to Japan, China, the Philippines and the Dutch East Indies. So the German sunboat ntia hoisted the German flag on Yap and other Islands in 1885. Spain pro tested. The Pope was named arbitra tor and upheld Spain's claim, granting Germany important trading rights. Fourteen years later, after the Spanish-American war, Spain sold the Caro lines and Ladrone islands to Germany for $4,200,000. Guam was excepted, as it had come Into the possession of the United States In 1898. Yap next attracted attention In 1914, when British cruisers destroyed the wireless station and cut the ca bles. A month or so later a Japanese fleet took possession. This was a sur prise, as Great Britain had officially announced that Japan's activities In the war would not extend beyond the China sea. In answer to an inquiry, Japan assured Secretary of State Bryan that the occupation was for military purposes only and would not be permanent. Yap, together with the other -Caroline Islands, Is of considerable mili tary Importance. It lies at the gate of the Orient. America's route to the Philippines runs by way of Hawaii, Guam, Yap and Manila. As a Japa nese naval base, it would be a menace both to Guam and the Philippines. church portals.

Scientists, philosophers and spiritualists of Port ugal are trying' to explain the origin of a strange sound first heard three months ago in a house in Oporto. The sound occurred at midnight and those who heard it, believe that it is caused by the soul of a seamstress, doomed to haunt the world to expiate a sin. The opinion here will rather he that one of the enterprising agents for a sewing machine company Is seeking free publicity. "Vf if ment and success lar vote on partisan tickets, by county courts not in any other way respon sible for the public schools except, perhaps, that they may determine to some extent the county tax levy for schools, by commissions representing local school boards over the actions of which the county superintendent is supposed to have some kind of control, and possibly in other ways eqnally illogical and absurd. In all the states in which county superintendents are not elected by responsible boards to which they in turn are responsible and in which salaries are not large enough to make it possible to fill the offices with competent men and women giving full time to the duties of the office, legis latures should take steps at the earliest possible moment, making these things possible and requiring them. Xowhere should the salary of the county superintendent be less than $2,500. To enable the weaker counties to pay adequate salaries and for many other reasons, the state should pay one-half of the minimum salary at least. Boards of education should have the power to select county superin tendents from the country at large and should be required to select them only on the basis of professional preparation and ability. Is the Russian Rebellion Likely to Overthrow the Bolshevists? By SIR PAUL DUKES, Sly personal opinion is that this anti-Bolshevik uprising is premature. The last was liquidated only four months ago and it left the workers with out arms and without organization. time in which to organize a successful the horde of spies of the extraordinary commission, including almost the entire staff of the days of czardom, are actively at work everywhere. If it be successful, the outcome will be, first of all, chaos and anarchy Out of this may arise some figurehead or even some leader who would bring order out of the confusion. This leader may be Kerensky or Vic tor Chernoff, both of whom are active. If it be unsuccessful, then the prestige of the Bolshevik leaders will be enhanced greatly. It will then be necessary for western Europe to of diplomatic and trade relations with Russia, even complete recognition of the soviet government. Personally, I strongly favor such recognition, for I believe that ignorance of the true nature of Bolshevist rule is so complete that knowl edge of its despotism and its horror will never fully come until the west ern world begins actually to deal with the Bolshevists. Habit of Crowd-Making Is Becoming a Serious Menace to Civilization. By E. D. MARTIN, in As a practical problem, the habit of crowd-making is daily becoming a more serious menace to civilization. Events are making it more and more clear that, pressing as are certain economic questions, the forces which threaten society are really psychological. Both the individual and society of nothing which today so menaces but also it is the' same thing in of personality and true knowledge of as crowds. Our society is becoming a veritable babble of gibbering crowds. Not only are mob outbreaks and riots increasing in number, but every interest, patriotic, religious, ethical, political, confusion of propagandist tongues, into extravagant partisanship and intemperance. While it cannot be said that the habit of crowd making is peculiar to our times other ages, too, have indulged in it it does seem that the tendency to crowd-mindedness has greatly iacreased in recent vears.

The reform is starting and will selves. The cool judgment of decent boys in matters of this kind is essen tially sound; and the boys have had enough.

And 6ince popularity is seemingly for her daughter he will be quick to sense the altered atmosphere and adjust herself accordingly. Here, then, is our ground for hope. The boys can, and I believe will, correct an intolerable situation.
