THE GREENEVILLE DAILY SUN, FRIDAY, MAY 2, 1919. THREB Big War Tank Visits Morristown MORRISTOWN, Tenn., May 1. The Victory Liberty Loan tank was here this afternoon, and gave a dem onstration of how the tank con climb banks, go over small trees, etc. The tank is different from most things when it gets in a tight pace.

N A large crowd gathered to sue this tank and hear the soldiers in chargj of it tell their experiences in the war. The crpwd was very enthusiastic, and no doubt great good was accomplish ed for the Victory loan. War Expense of America Higher WASHINGTjpy 2. Nearly six months .afterthft signing of the armistice, America's war expenses - not only '.are continuing without abatement, but actually are increas ing over those of the past few months. This was shown yesterday by a treas ury report of government outlays for April, amountms to approximately $1,420,006,000, of which about two thirds went to pay the nation's di rect war bills and one-third went to the allies o enable them to pay ob ligations incurred in this country heretofore for wa,r materials and foodstuffs. The gradual, mounting of war ex penses vfrom month to month, fol lowing the big drop from around $2, 000,000,000 a month last December and January, to $1,189,000,000 in February, was cited by treasury of , ficials as a very substantial reason why the Victory liberty loan must be generously subscribed. The increase in the last two months is attributed to the gradual setting of manufacturers' accounts by the war department, and by the higher demand of the allies , for credits with which to pay bills previously incurred in . this country. The tremendous outlays- in April raised the United States' actual ex penditures since the nation entered the war a little more than two years ago to about $30,5000,000,000. About $9,000,000,000 of this has gone to the allies and will be repaid eventual ly. Without war, the government's expenses probably would not have been more than $3,000,000,000 in the last two years, officials believe. Germany Now Seeking After War Diplomats (By United Press.) BERLIN, April 15. (By Mail.) Finding men who can satisfy the en tente capito'.s as ambassadors is a problem perpxeling the German for eign office. The Germans are enxious to get men who will get as favorable standing ai possible with the entente nations. The question is to find Ger mans who are not compromised in foreign eyes, especially for England the Foreignand America. According to inside rumors from theforeign office, Count BernstorfT is to name his successor at Washington. There is no one in diplomatic circles who is considered entirely satisfac , tory. The radical elements are boost ing for Maximilian Harden, but Har den ,has not the confidence of the for eign office, who say he is too blunt. Prince Lichnowski is not a possi bility, according to both the foreign office and the Prince, too, who says he might go back to England, but cannot go so far as America where he would be out ol touch with his business interests. Theodor Wolff, newspaper owner, is talked, of for Paris. BernstorfT will probably be sent to Italy, according to rumors, since Rome is the only capital tftat would tolerate him, it is felt in Berlin.

Bachelor Girl Reflections By HELEN ROWLAND f ! ! ! ! i ! l 4 I A man seldom breaks a woman's heart by some big, cruel act, but just gradually wears it out by a lot of little foolish ones. Most men appear to choose a wife for the great force of character and brilliant mental qualities which she acks. A man always winds the alarm clock and sets it for the finish of whatever he contemplates, from a morning nap to love's young dream. His idea of "luck in love" consists in getting out of a flirtation before he gets too far in it. In olden times, sacrifices were made at the altar. Perhaps that's why every bridegroom feels morally certain that he is a lamb being led to slaughter. The fashion in hats and hosiery may change and the styles in man ner and morals may be new from year to year, but a man's Ideal wo man is the 1830 Model, today, yes terday and forever. When love dies a woman closes the door of her heart and locks it in, but a man closes the door of his heart and locks it OUT. A frank man may be the noblest work of heaven, but he is as much de trop in feminine society as a woman on a fishing trip.
