Singular Admission Said to Have Been
Made by the Members of a
Graduating Class. '
It has long been the fashion at col
leges and schools to take a census of
graduating classes to determine ssch
vital facts as these:
What is your favorite flower? How
tall are you? Do you smoke? Are
you a prohibitionist?
At a girls' seminary a recent Inquiry
was more sweeping. To the Interroga
tlon: "Dp you swear?" 200 of the 215
girls answered yes.
But admitting that they swear Is
not proof that these feminine lips do
utter oaths. So at least says the law
in New York state,' writes "Griant" in
the Philadelphia Press.
"Four or five people" must hear you
swear, not for a second or two, but
"for about five minutes" that's the
law In North Carolina.
Down In Alabama they don't expect
a' man to swear from the housetops,
but the law says that if three or four
persons hear you just once, good
night I
In Tennessee it is not necessary to
repeat the offensive words when a 1
culprit is Indicted for swearing.
I saw on the veranda of a country
club seventeen women of whom twelve
were drinking an Intoxicating liquor
and seven were smoking cigarettes.
But if that census at the girls' semi
nary is an index, more women swear
than dally with John Barleycorn or
Lady Nicotine.
Query: Why do women insist on
being so much like men?
How Commanders During the Great
War Got Information of
Vital Importance.
The old-fashioned stereoscope
played an Important part in the
world war. It supplied an angle to
photographs, snapped from airplanes,
that could not be obtained from the
ordinary camera lens. Before its use
the pictures all seemed flat, but the
stereoscope added height, and thus
steep slopes, that appeared in pic
tures like flat ground, were shown In
their true characteristics, and the
lives of men who would have to cover
the ground in attack were saved.
The airplane camera looks directly
down on the spot to be photographed,
making a picture as a one-eyed man
would see It. A stereoscopic camera,
in which the lenses are two and
three-quarters Inches apart, would not
produce the stereoscopic effect. Pho
tographers decided to take pictures
100 yards apart to give a view, Just
as a giant, with eyes 100 yards apart,
would see It. These pictures were
put on cardboard, and viewed through
the stereoscope. At first a cottage
looked like a tower, a bucket like a
well, a trench like a canyon, etc. Th
officers soon learned to translate these
eccentricities, and the problem was
solved. True pictures, giving Just the
exact information desired, were then,
obtained by the airplane photogra
phers. The "Biblers."
The Czecho-Slovaks, having attain
ed national independence, attain also
the privilege of reading the Bible in
the national tongue, so the British Bi
ble society is planning to print Czech
Bibles purchasable for 60 cents each.
Austrians and Italians have long
called the Czecho-Slovaks "Biblers."
The Czech Bible was first printed in
1475, but when the Czechs came under
Austria the printing and reading; of
the Bible in their own language was
forbidden. Copies of the Czech Bible
were printed in other lands and smug
gled in, but were burned if discovered.
Religious persecution, dating back to
the time of John Huss, the Bohemian
reformer of the fifteenth century, com
bined with political persecution to
make the Czech Bible rare, but all the
more highly valued. Although, in mod
ern days, the Austrian government
permitted the circulation of the
Czech Bible in the army, it continued
to prohibit the circulation among the
Czechs at borne.

States in the war.
"Does anyone believe,'' asked the
Senator, "that the other nations would
accept the Shantung amendment?" He
pointed out that Great Britain has al
ready ratified the treaty and Is under
pledge to Japan with reference to
Shantung; that Franco in soon to ritf
Ify the treuty and is under the same
pledge to Japan.
"Does anyone suppose that Japan
herself would submit to such a humili
ation before the eyrs of the world?"
asked Hitchcock. "The answer is sim
ple' he asserted. We would find our
selves out in the cold, Isolated from
the rest of the world.
"What, then, will the United States
do? What will those American states
men propose who stand for this method
of killing the treaty? Some of thein
will say that Congress can pass a Joint
resolution declaring a state of peace
with Germany. Others say the United
States can negotiate a separate and in
dependent treaty of peace with Ger
many. Those who talk this way evi
dently have no conception of the enor
mous benefits and advantages which
the United States derives from this
treaty which we wrung from Germany
at the cannon's motUi. Neither have
they any conception of the difficulties
Involved in negotifll?K a new treatj'
wUh Germany to atoblish the tenua
of peace and Settle -the controversies
of the war.
"To my mind it would be suicidal
for the United States to throw away
the advantages and benefits provided
In this treaty. It would be disastrous
commercially and financially. It would
put us at an enonsnous disadvantage
In our international relations not only
with Germany but with those nations
which we would thus desert They
would remain bound together by ties
of mutual interest. They would enjoy
the benefits of the treaty and would
not be slow to tak very advantage of
them. They would resent our deser
tion. "Up to this point 1 have discussed
the possible defeat of the treaty by
means of proposed amendments to it.
That is the real program and hope of
the majority of the committee on for
eign relations. It is for that purpose
that the treaty has been locked up In
cold storaee for so many weeks. The
enemies of the League of Nations In
the Senate are not many compared to
its friends, but they control the com
mittee. They hve felt Justified in ro
tainine the treaty in the committee,
holding useless hearings and making
killing amendments with the fnfl
knowledge that amendments would
beat the treaty Just as effeclvely as a
refusal to ratify.
" "A. ftw, a very few, Senators have
dclnred that they would vote against
the treaty because of the League of
Nations, but it has remained for tne
Senator from I'enosslvaitfa Uirjimox
