BERLIN, Nov. 9.—Eleven years after the end of the war and the proclamation of the republic, the anniversary ot the German revolution today passes almost unnoticed. The Internal crisis and questions of foreign policy—flret of all, tho acceptance oC the Young plan—pfeoccupy Germany. The revolution seems to be a thing 6t the remote past. True, it Is not entirely forgotten. The discussion on tho question "republic or monarchy" never dies down completely. But the problems of present-day Germany are vastly different from those of 1918. Nothing remains of the peculiar atmosphere of those hectic- days eleven years ago. In Russia, the events of 1917 still produce an impetus which permeates the whole of public and,even private life. The inspiration of 1789 was stilt living under the Napoleonic regime. But 1918 has no such inspiration. The republican parties, those which gained power through the revolution, never refer to themselves as revolutionary parties. Instead, they boast the legitimate character of their regime. Social Democrats who, in the days of William II, could not find terms tierce enough to denounce the "state," now proudly call themselves a state-supporting party. And yet, this state is very different from the republic which leaders of the 1918 revolution conceived as future Germany. In 1918 trade unions were tho only organized power In the country. Consequently, the "directorate" which assumed the central executive power after the resignation of Wilhelm was composed entirely of socialists. The socialists themselves were not united. The majority retained the old party name of Social Democrats, while a powerful section organized under the new name of Independent Socialists. These two groups divided the seats between themselve while the bourgeoisie seemed extinct. A communist party did not exist at that time. With the socialists in control of tho •tate, the outstanding question of governmental politics was the realization of the new economic and social order. The creation of complete social justice, according to the teachings of Marx, seemed within reach. Such was the atmosphere of those days. This explains why present-day Germany has nothing in common with the Germany of 1918. Tho Socialists are still the most powerful political party, but they no longer control politics b; 1 themselves. They are obliged to cooperate with non*socialist patties. The reorganization of the social and economic system, the abolition of private property is not even mentioned. Broad perspectives, vast schemes which were characteristic or politics in the revolutionary period have vanished completely. Politics today is a game of petty compromises and intrigues. Each party is obliged to sacrifice part of its program in order to attain what is possible, and as a consequence each party is diasatls- lied. As it is understood that the parties give only temporary support to any government, the present fornj of parliamentary government seems to be a permanent crisis, interrupted by periods of half-hearted cooperation. The spirit ot the Novembers day* l» gone, ' PRINCE OF WALES HlflLL GIVE DINNER MAN FROM MOROCCO (Continued From Page 6) •I don't want the heads of a sermon from you," ho growled. "I will have you understand that I am intellectually your superior, socially your equal—" "And morally the mud under my feet," she said scornfully. For a moment she thought he would strike her. His bloated face grew nrst purple with passion, then faded to a pasty white, "Intellectually your superior and socially your equal," he muttered again. "I am superfor to your insults, Telum imbelle sine ictu!" And then came a half-mind Hamon, dragging behind him a man, at the sight of whom Joan reeled backward. It was a beggar—a grinning, fawning, toothless old man, horriWe to look upon as he came cringing into this lovely room. "Here is your husband!" almost shrieked the demented man. "Look at him I You'd sooner marry a beggar, would you, d—n youl Well, you shall marry him and you shall have the desert for your honeymoon!" She looked from the beggar to Ban- nockwaite and even In her distress she could not help thinking that she had never seen two more hideous men in her life. "Get you book, Bannockwaite 1" yelled Hamon. He was frothing at the mouth, so utterly beside himself that he seemed Inhuman. From his pocket Bannockwaite produced a a mall book and opened it, "You'll want a witness," he said, and again Hamon dashed out, return- Ing with half a dozen servants, And there, under the curious eyes of the tittering Moors, Lady Joan Carstdn was married to Abdul Aziz. Hamon muttered something In Arabic to the man and then the girl felt herself caught by the arm and pulled and led through the hall into the garden. Hamon dragged her to the open gates and flung her out with such violence that she nearly fell. "Take , your husband • back to Crelthl" he how~led. "By God, you'll be glad to come back to mel" (To Be Continued) PEACE PREVAILING •ON ARMISTICE DAY By SAMIJKT, DASHIKl.t,, Strtff, PARIS, Nov. 9.—The eleventh anniversary of the armlattce, wlilnh ended history's greatest war, finds Europe, at length launched nn a firmly established program of pence. It took scores of so-called pence conferences, reparations conference, ministerial parleys and tentative drafts and treaties, for the allies and the central powers to arrive finally at something approximating an agreement, f The outstanding peace effort was the Young plan, and Its resultant conference at The Hague, tho terms of which still are to bo ratified. There seems to be little doubt now among European statesmen that this achievement will succeed, During the last year, France ratified its American and British war debts, which the virtual adoption of the Young plan made certain. Germany acquiesced to the terms of the Young plan, through its head delegate, Dr. Schacht. By this capitulation to the allied diplomats and financiers, Germany was a substantial victory of the Rhlneland occupation ' question.- The Rhineland will be free of allied Soldiers five years before the time limit fixed by the Versailles treaty. This fa, of course, dependent on Germany's good will regarding, prompt Young plan payments, and on Germany's submission to total disarmament. Armistice day, 1920, thus will have a double significance. It will recall tho Joyous, delirious dny of ultimate victory, and it Will remind people likewise that the world cnn continue to labor in undisturbed peace. The commitments ot these last conferences will most likely he observed, except that future years will see one major problem confronting European chancellories; that is, tho union of Austria with Germany. Although France resolutely discourages any attempts toward this union, it is frequently observed throughout the press that this union is inevitable, If the central Europen.n nations are to be expected to live In any state ot solvency or happiness. With the League of Nations functioning, there is no reason why the union of Austria to Germany should he the cause of another conflict. Franco and Italy certainly will delay this event, but it seems doubtful If they can stem the tide of racial sympathy which flows between Germany and Austria. Perhaps Germany will continue to agitate against the Versailles treaty. DID ALTOONA RADIO & ELEC. CO. 1318 12th Ave. Dial 0318 Perhaps ' tho Young plun payments will be made grudgingly, but the present solidarity among.the allies, there seems to ho little likelihood ot any warlike enterprise here in Europe. Alliances and treaties, of friendship have been signed on every hand. France has thorn with Jugo-Sln.via, Poland, Rumania and others, Italy has fewer treaties of amity, but Is slowly working up diplomatic alliances which may eventually preclude any light with France. The Briand- Kellogg pact also embraces most of the Important nations, and thus the United States, although not technically Involved in European affairs, has a tremendous moral interest to uphold, in keeping peace established. The only $50 gold pieces ever minted by the U. S. government was for the Panama-Pacific exposition in 1915, More than 3,000 of those wore made. Broken Plates and Loose Plates remade like new.

LONDON, Nov. 9.—Close to 400 men, each wearing a little bronze cross on his breast, will have dinner with the Prince of Wales, this eve- Th'efr are the holders of Britain's most coveted military honor, the Victoria cross, awarded for deeds of valor on the field o£ battle. They range in rank from generals to privates and in walks in life from lords to navvies. The dinner Is the Prince of Wales' own idea. He expressed tho wish to, entertain V. C.'s from all parts of the world and chose the Armistice weekend as the most suitable time. The British Legion took up the idea and have discovered .about 400 holders of the award, who will attend, although It is believed that there are many more who will hot. Many are coming from overseas to bi present at the dinner, while In one case the British Legion is buying a milt and. paying the fare of William Kadcliffe, a Liverppol docker, who otherwise would not b« there. General Sir Reginald Hart, who won the V. C. In the.Afghan war of 1879, probably will be the oldest guest. The dinner is to be held In the royal gallery of the houses of parliament, and the menu, which is being prepared by parliamentary cooks, Is entirely British. Even the wines are exclusively empire products. The prince has expressly asked that the occasion shall ba informal and had the invitations state "lounge suits." He and Lord Jellicoe, president of the legion, will be the only non-holders of the decoration present. Both will wear lounge suits. EVERETT FARMER JOINS 400-BUSHEL POTATO OLUB EVERETT, Pa., Nov. 9.—Another member was added to the Pennsylvania 400 bushel club, when McKinley Wey" of near Everett, reported his crop for this season. Vey had a yield of 409.42 bushels on a measured acre, announcea County Farm Agent Mollenauer. The crop is especially commendable in view of the fact that the prolonged drought of the summer kept the coun ty yield low. The potatoes, which required twenty three bushels of seed, are certified RuBaet. ENGINEERS OFFERS FLAN FOR CROSSING CHANNEL LONDON, Nov. • 9.—A vast double dam across the English channel between Deal, England, and Calais, France, carrying two railway tracks, an automobile road, and providing a ship canal, has been suggested by Jules Jaeger, Swiss engineer, as a Bubtltute for the proposed underground channel tunnel. The government In a statement Wednesday denied a report that ,the proposed channel tunnel had been abandoned as impractical at the present. Jaegers scheme would cost approximately |400,000,000, while the cost of building the • tunnel has . been put at $150,000,000. "The water between the two dams would form a large canal for ships and barges connecting London—by a IB-mile-lohg canal from Deal to flernd bay—with the whole canal sys- ;em of France and Germany and with the Rhine and Danube, the two most important waterways of Europe," Jaeger said. The two dams would bo connected with the coasts by bridges high enough to afford free passage to »teamers," h« «aid. LEX'S DREAM OF XHK OLD HOME. (Written for The Mirror) There's a bootjack, there'* a sink, There's a dough-tray, and I think In the attic you may find the trundle bed, •," Where, when childhood's day -was o'er, And my feet were tired and sore I would go to sleep before All of, "Now, I lay me. down to sleep, "> was said. We had cradles, two I see; Diff'rent use of course they'd be, One had fingers and was used for cu- ting grain; But the other did enclose Curly hair, and fingers, toei, And two lips red as a rose- Twice the Reaper said they must not long remain. . In my dreams I wander back, From the hardened, beaten track, Just to 'alt within the room a little space; Where au angel held my hand, Told me of a City grand, Prayed I'd meet her in that land Tn,en ahe said "goodby" and started for the place.- If you see it as I've said, Maybe now you've bowed your head, As you bring that early pictur* into view; And should teardrops fill your eyes, They're not foolish, they are wise, They are pleadings In disguise For the old home and for what it means to you. , F. C. DODSON. i | i $ B. 4 U» II i A Sincere and Honest Statement by || the Manager of the State Theatre, Altoona, Pa. In spite of the fact that it cost a fortune to 1 ?«•: bring Rio Rita to you, I know the public will take |j£; advantage of the fact that Altoona is fortunate in securing this singing, dancing and dramatic marvel of the talking screen, and give us their support. At a private rehearsal of Rio Rita on Thursday night, I sat spell bound through it all. 1 knew I was going to see and hear an unusual attraction, but it surpassed my fondest hopes. In recording it is perfect. Bebe Daniels is certainly what they term her, The Singing Marvel. John Boles is conceded to be the greatest r , tenor of them all, Robert Woolsey and Bert Wheeler are comedians of the 0; first rank, sets and costumes are beyond any description I can give you. Beautiful girls by hundreds, dancing that thrills you. Entire second act is in technicolor. This one makes them all take a back seat, including Broadway Melody. To err is human but to miss Rio Rita is calamity. Avoid the night crowds and attend the matinees. Our usual prices prevail. After seeing this production, you will agree that I have not said half enough about it.
