PRIZE FOR BRIGHTEST HUE Members Are Listed in the Club Rolls Under 22 Classifications Covering the Various Shades of Red Hair To Study Data. Washington. What does the color, abundance and texture of your hair reveal regarding your character and ability? The question is raised sharply by the news of a banquet which was held this year by an unusual organization In the University of Nebraska. It Is known as the Order of Golden Fleece and Us membership Is composed only of young women whose hair belongs to one of the many shades Tulgarl? described as red. According to au thoritative reports the members are classified on the club rolls under the following color headings : Squash, car rot, pumpkin, orange, brick, scarlet, flamingo, maroon, copper, auburn, henna, mahogany, magenta, sorrel, strawberry, roan, russet, cerise, car nation, salmon, shrimp pink and pink. Lemon, ginger, insipid brown and chemicals of all kinds are barred. Prizes are awarded at the annual events for the brightest flame of color, the greatest quantity of hair and that of the most beautiful shade. One More Kind of Class Feeling. This organization is interesting and perhaps alarming to the general public aa an example of one more kind of class feeling. It Is well known' that class feeling and the tendency to or ganize on a class basis are on the in crease. We now have associations not only of capital and labor, but also mothers' leagues, parents' leagues, con sumers' leagues, writers' leagues. There are leagues based on every pos sible role which one may play In life, whether in business, politics, society, marriage or sport; but heretofore, so far as we can learn by exhaustive re search, there has been no effort to or ganize on a basts of physical charac teristics, if a few Jolly Fat Men's clubs be excepted. The tendency to organize on a basis of hair color, therefore, is a thing of great and alarming possibilities, espe cially if red-headed women take the lead in the matter. Imagine if you can an Insurrection of the Interna tional Order of Red-Headed Women. And this organization of red-headed women Into clubs will undoubtedly in tensify what you might call the hair class-feeling. The Order , of the Golden Fleece will no doubt make a pretty thorough study of all the data bearing on red-headedness, and each person will come away from its gath erings with a clearer notion of the spe cial destiny which her flaming top has prescribed for her. That Old Saying, VKnow. There seems long to have been a sort of general agreement that red beaded persons have peculiar charac teristics.' It Is generally believed, for example, that they have hot tempers and strong emotions generally. In the last century a simile in common nse was "easy as making love to a red beaded girl." Since the rise of the Nietzsche-Shaw-Mencken school of philosophy, which holds that woman is a dangerous predatory animal, bent on bunting man down and making a slave of him, this generally has been revised to read "dangerous as making love to a red-headed girl." Whatever basis this saying may have In the experience of man. It is ample evidence of a general popular feeling that red-headedness is a quality of the knlnd and temperament as well as of the hair. For some reason, there is no similar popular Idea regarding other hair colors, but scientific re search shows that hair is a great re Irealer of character in an indirect way. FIND YANK'S BODY PETRIFIED French Miner Discovers Corpse of Pri vate of 166th Infantry in Coal Pit. I " Marysvllle, Ohio. Ralph O. Clark, who served as a member of Company B, One Hundred and Sixty-sixth in fantry. overseas, has received word from France telling of the finding of tht petrified body oí Charles Johnson, "lili I i" Dougherty, archbishop of Philadelphia, The Illustration shows the procession of automobiles carrying the cardinal and in New York, Rodman Wanamnker presenting a bunch of roses to the cardinal: That is, it shows what race predom inates in the make-up of the Individ ual, and therefore what racial traits he may be expected to have. This, It appears, is less true of the red-headed than of either blondes or brunettes. Red-headedness occurs in both blonde and brunette races, as a sort of sport-color. It does seem to be associated generally with certain emotional and nervous characteristics, but these are peculiar to the reds of all races. That they are by no means necessarily disadvantageous is shown by the great number of successful red headed men and the well- known popu larity of red-headed women. But black hair or blonde hair Is dis tinctly indicative of race, and it is only by such physical characteristics that race may be detected these days. Race now conforms to national boundaries very little. It would be easy to find an Irishman and a German who were of exactly the same racial type, and two Irishmen who were as different racially as an Italian and a Swede. Characteristics of Race. There are three principal races in Europe, according to the anthropolo gists the Nordic, the Alpine and the Mediterranean. The Nordics are the tall blonde men with long heads na tive to the north, as for example the typical Prussian or Norwegian. The Alpines are a short, stocky race with brown hair and flat heads inhabiting east central Europe, as for example a typical Swiss peasant. The Mediter raneans are a short, dark, long-headed race, inhabiting the south of Europe, as for example, a typical Italian. In addition to these there are many other races in smaller numbers, such as the Old Black Breed In Ireland and the an cient Iberian race In Spain, but these have had relatively little influence on the mass of European and American population. The other three races are mixed badly all through central and western Europe and in the United States. Hair color Is significant as showing whether Nordic or Mediterranean blood predominates in the individual. It does not reveal the presence of Alpine blood so readily for the Alpine stock usually show brown hair of an intermediate and Indeterminate shade. The shape of the head should be most valuable in detecting that particular strain. The Nordic and the Mediterranean stocks have different qualities, accord ing to the anthropologists. The Nord ics are noted for their combatlveness. their organizing ability and their sense of order. The Mediterranean race on the other hand is noted for Its artistic and musical ability, and its creative genius generally, while In war and gov ernment it is not so conspicuously suc cessful. It is the theory of some scientists that nearly all . the great European governments were organized by Nordics. They say that the orig inal Romans were Nordics from the north, and that when this stock died out, due to an unfavorable climate, the Roman government collapsed. This pretty theory has never been proved. Subject Little Understood. In fact, the whole matter of race characteristics Is little understood. Typically, a tall blonde man should be a good executive, a reliable, con scientious fellow, not apt to get ex cited or act suddenly on impulse, but rather lacking in Imagination and en thusiasm. These latter qualities should be found rather In a brunette. You can find much to contradict this notion, and yon can dismiss It with a shrug if you wish to. But you can find also, by common observation some facts to support it. For example, is it without significance that the engineers of ocean-going boats men on whom many lives depend are almost al ways blond men either Scotchmen or Scandinavians. And how many such tall blond Scots and Swedes will you find In such occupations as designing, interior decorating, teaching and per forming music, which requires a sense an American soldier who lost his life overseas.

It is well to study hair color as one more key to the mvsterv of nersnnnl- ity, but let us hope that the tendency to draw nair-color lines will not spread, and that the Order of the Golden Fleece will remain local.

Mario Facta, an an archist, was blown to pieces by a bomb which he was trying to explode against the house of Slgnor di Benedetto, an engineer in this city. During the pe riod of disorders here last September, when workmen occupied many metal factories, Signor di Benedetto de fended his factory against an attack and killed two persons. He was later tried and acquitted. It having been found that he acted in self-defense. Facta was twenty years old and was recently expelled from France for hav ing formed a section of the Italian So cialist party In Lyon.

LARGER REVENUE FOR ROADS Tendency Toward Devoting Increased Portion of Motor Vehicles Tax to Highways. (Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture) For a number of years the general tendency toward devoting an ever-in creasing portion of the motor-vehicle revenues to road work under the control and direct supervision of the state highway departments has been very noticeable. Prior to 1912 only a very small portion of the motor-vehicle registration was devoted to this purpose. In 1920, 76 per cent of the revenue, or $77,531,582,57, was applied to road work under the direct super vision of the state highway depart ments, and in addition $20,4(35,578.04 was applied to road work by counties or other local supervision, but with little or no direct supervision from the state highway departments. In most states the motor-vehicle revenues are devoted to maintenance and repair of the state roads or other Improved highways. These states seem to have solved fairly well the difficult problem of securing funds for the maintenance of the more im portant roads under the ever-increasing traffic requirements. As both the traffic and the revenues increase with the number of cars, there apparently exists a possibility of so adjusting the registration rates as to keep pace with the ever-growing maintenance charges. A number of the states having In general but a small mileage of im proved roads have recently adopted the plan cf capitalizing the motor- vehicle revenues and devoting these funds to road construction. The states doing this are Illinois, Maine, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, Utah, and Wyoming. In them bonds have been voted or Issued for road con struction, and the principal. In some instances also the interest, is to be paid entirely from the motor-vehicle revenue. At the beginning of 1921 there were still seven stales in which motor trucks were registered at the same rate as passenger cars, but in recent years there has been a very decided tendency in most states to increase the fees required for motor trucks over and above those required for passenger cars. This increase is usually based on the weight of the truck and its carrying capacity, its horse-power, or a combination of these factors. The most general practice seems to be toward definitely limiting the maximum total road weight of the vehicle and basing the registration fee nauling a Largo Load of Farm Prod uce In Open-Top Truck, Covered With Canvas. on the capacity of the truck. Some few states have adopted a scale of fees, which in actual practice serves to make the operation of very heavy trucks Impracticable. In Colorado, New York, and Oregon, in addition to the registration fees, a state tax on gasoline or other products used for the propulsion of motor vehicles is also levied. In some states motor cars are taxed as personal property in addition to the required registration fees. In Alabama, Dela ware, Idaho, ' Iowa, Michigan, New Hampshire, New York, Carolina, Penn sylvania, Tennessee, and Vermont, the registration fees are In lieu of all personal property taxes. OLD METHODS ARE DISLIKED No Longer Produce Results Equal to the Demands of Transporta tion on Highways. Road-building experts are endeavor ing to impress the public with the fact that the old methods of building roads no longer produce results equal to the demands for highway transportation. If the highways are to be developed to their capacity there must be better and better highways. Aid in Highway Research. Engineering departments of leading colleges and universities in this coun try are aiding national bodies and ac tively co-operating in the work upon a national program of highway re search. Money for Good Roads. It is announced in Washington that the various states have $622,000,000 for the building of roads not, how ever, for the payment of exorbitant profits to unscrupulous contractors.

There are great cities, factories of every kind, and there is the equipment necessary to the carrying on of practically every enterprise re quired. That this power will be sufficient to assure the valley's complete development, is evidenced in the fact that 54,000,000 population repre sents in excess of one-half the voting My own state of Illinois is now ing locks and a nine-foot channel connecting the Great Lakes with the Mississippi, and before long all the ports of the Great Lakes, as well as Chicago, will be moving freight by water to and from shipside at New Orleans.
