(Copyright, WASHINGTON, Aug. 2. It is fin-1 pressively judicative of the distance which Germany lias traveled in the five post-Locarno years that the dissolution of the Reichstag by presidential decree and the imminence of a new ffneral election leaves the world calm. Xot i thia calm much disturbed by tif current predictions that the results of the new political campaign will bring added strength to the political parties which respectively champion revolution and reaction, namely, the Cimmunists and the Fascists.

Gilbert' Warning In a word, although Germauy has accepted the Young plan .and is fulfilling her obligations under it, there still remains the more or less sublimi nal conviction that the burden is at once impossible to carry and undeserved in fact. What is required is a political administration having the votes and the will to compel the German States and people to reduce their own expenses so that they can at one time balance their own domestic budget and pay their war debts, as fixed by the Treaty of Versailles and the Young plan. In his last annual report, in winding up his administration of the reparations payments under the Dawes plan, Parker Gilbert sounded again the note of warning which has been frequently on his lips. Germany, he said, had adequate resources to run her own it- fairs and pay her obligations, but the rate at which she was upending bsd produced an unbalanced budget and would ultimately impair her capacity to pay her conquerors. But it is easy to imagine the eonse qneuces when a political government, even with a strong majority party be hind it, tells the voters, who are the taxpayers, that they must economize (Continued or 3d Pag. 2d Column F Foreign Delegates to Law Conference Come Here September 10 Will Visit Historic Shrines and Inspect Port; Sir John Simon in Party v Philadelphia will be host for a day to several hundred foreign delegates who will come to the United States next month to attend the annual conference of the International Law Asso ciation.

Most of tho older couples who went to court were widows or widowers married a second time, and who were having disputes about each other's children. Learn From Experience "It does seem," remarked a veteran court attache, "that couples who have taken time to have several romances before settling down to a one seem to be content with their final decision. Perhnps there is a psychological explanation, as well as the obvious one of experience. It may be that the experience they have gone through, a sort of 'evolution' in heart affnirs, assures them that their eventual decision must be the right one, and they make the best of it. "Certain younger couples, on the other hand, who have not lived long enough to have had much social life with any but each other, and who have not taken much time to think, may be properly mated, but find cause to dis agree with each other simply because they do not realize they are suited. "On the basis that if they had waited they might have married more con genially, a false sympathy arises for each other. The truth is, tliey may have only the uncertainty and generally selfish attitude that make their mariage more difficult than if they had waited, or even married, their 'second best' boy friends or girl friends, but with a maturity that might make for less of this unfortunate spirit." Church Ceremonial Aids Difficulties between coup'es where the woman is older are of little con sequence, it hns lieen shown. Some old er women are better matched with younger men and vice versa. It was shown that persons who have their nmrriage solemnized in the church are often a little less selfish, so that their marriages tend to be successful, regardless of age.

I Mush made from garlic ami other refuse is now lieillg used by Iwotleg-gcrs as the basis for the manufacture of moonshine whisky. This was revealed yesterday through the aiuiljsis of liquor nml alcohol by city chemists. Of all the liquors seized by the police milling squad under Inspector Jiiines Tsjlor, approximately ninety-five per cent, contain poisonous substances, the analysis also disclosed. HootleggiTs, hard -pressed to obtain alcohol, because of the stringent co operative warfare against them by the police and Federal prohibition forces in this city, have tinned to the use of astouuding methods to obtain ingredi ents with which to make liquor. A decrease in the release of alcohol that averaged 1.000.000 gallons annti ally six years ago, to an average out put of tiO.OOO gallons this year, is one of the reasons why bootleggers are forced to use what comes their way to make a mash from which alcohol is derived. The stoppage of the leak in the alcohol market was due to the activity of Colonel Samuel O. Wynne. Aided by Schofleld Woiking hand in glove with thu former prohibition enforcement chief in the eastern district of Pennsylvania, Director of Public Safety Schofield supplied the necessary assistance to see that alcohol manufactured In other sections of the country did lmt trickle into Philadelphia. So' effective has been the team work between the Federal and police agen den here, that the new Federal pro- ihibition chief, W. T.

After the usual rites he assembled t luncheon a few members of his family and guests from afar by way of a farewell gathering. The German Emperor was, of course, the guest of honor by reason of his imperial title and far more from having ever been a favorite of the dead Queen. It was a small affair at St, James's Palace. Perhaps forty were present, including a few Ambassadors and military attaihes in attendance upon sovereigns present.
