Using another color, perhaps. The fool is about the only person on earth who doesn't try to keep others from thinking he is one. j Woman is born to sacrifice. She brings man into the world only to give him away to some other woman. AS THE EDITOR SEES IT And now Associate Justice Clark of the United States Supreme Court , solemnly assures us that we should cancel the eleven biMions of debts the allied governments owe to us. j That would he generous indeed. ! . m 1 I tsut we suggest to tne leamca justice ar J o.her advocates of cancellation that they combine and buy up these r ligations, paying for thvm from tl eir own private funds, and then surrc:iuci them to our foreign debtors or touch a match to them. Tlis: would t-e even more generou. And for once we ordinary tax payers would not object. A fev days ago a daily paper contained a picture of a number of women, garbed only in scanty bathing coi-turn. a game of baseball n the beach at Atlantic City, N. J., on New Year's day ir. zero weather. Under normal conditions a bathing suit vould attract no undue attention wr.atc r. Flaying baseball is good exerciic, even in freezing weather. But though liberal in our views, we yet can conceive of no excuse for such a radical departure from the conventions of good breeding and womanly modesty, unless ii be an inordinate craving for the vulgar exposure of legs and more through the medium of the illustrated sections of the public press. As a fitting finale, we suggest to such women a parade through populous streets, c!ad only in the garb nature provided them, mounted upon jackasses, and with a battery rf camera men ready to portray every step. Perhacs then the men would be sufficiently disgusted to pay r.o more attention to them than to any other animal unadorned. on a A thouehtless man stands street comer as an attractive lady is parLlnf ' , . . .

Officers ;f the National Retail Shce association have sprung a bomb upon the country. They assert that the feet of our charming women are gradually growing in size, and that as a consequence much larger shoes are in demand. Scandalous! We never dreamed that an American man could be so ungallant! Even if have said it were true, they should "larger shoes are more in demand, owing; to the superlative wis. dom of our enlightened and emanci- rated womanhood in declining to longer torture themselves by cramp-1 mg tneir eei in snoes a size iw small for them." x As long as a dollar bill is circulat- . ing around here it is worth a dollar to the community. When sent awav it begins to enrich oMier people in other places. It sel - dom ever returns. Keep the dollars at home as long as cossible. Others are not tearing their hair in an effort to hand them to us. The Field Museum in Chicago has ' an exhibition of food which, according to President Stanley Field, is the greatest in the west. It contains i everything in the way of edibles j that belongs to the vegetable king- j dom. The department of botany alone lists more than 250,000 items. Gold was discovered in California only eight miles from the present j Lincoln highway, at Placerville, in 1S48. INDIANA WANTS NEW IN SENATE FRIENDS OF SENATOR DO FAVOR HIS REMOVAL TO CABINET POSITION' NOT A His Record in the Upper Branch of Congress Such as to Entitle Him to a Re-election and Campaign Organization for. Him Being Perfected in the State. ! Senator Harry S. New, of Indiana, j has been urged by a number of his J political friends in the Senate to con- sider an appointment to the Cabinet j of President Harding as successor to Will H. Hayes, of Indiana, present I Postmaster General, who is to retire March 4. The Senator has indicated to these friends that he desires especially to be returned as Senator from Indiana. His friends in the State are insisting that he remain in the Senate, believ-iinar that he will be of more use and value to Indiana as a Senator than as 1 Postmaster General. j Senator New would not discuss the I Cabinet position because no formal j official tender of the appointment had ; come to him. It is recalled that ru- I mor placed Senator New in the original Harding Cabinet, and ic was understood generally that Senator j New could have had one of these posi- I tions had he desired to leave the Sen- ate. His relations with President Hardine are as intimate now as thev were then. Eben Walcott, of the State Savintrs , - .. , . , , T ,. .
