With its mind on what it has achieved for peace at The Hague, Geneva and in Premier Ramsay MacDonald's visit to Washington, the government, has ordered that the ceremony at the cenotaph in Whitehall shall be of a more civilian character. No more will the scarlet tunics of the guards, the contrasting- blues of the navy and air force, and the glittering accoutrements of other regiments lend color to the imposing scene. Today that street where beats. ,the hea.rt of the empire was a drab . mass of every-day suits, which the white surplices of the clergy and khaki uniforms of the representative, detachments served by contrast .to make even more, somber.

Ills views itKsiimn unusual Impor- InMCC. In view of hlx commiitidlnt? position In (he soimto of the forthcoming arms conferi-nce In London. The article follows: Uy SENATOR WILLIAM K. UOltAlI, (Written for United Press.) (Copyright, 1921), by United Press.) WASHINGTON, D. C., Nov. 11.—Tho soldiers are leaving the Rhine; debts ind reparations have been adjusted; i pact has been signed by all nations renouncing war as an arbiter in in- ..ernatlonai controversies. These are jroal movements In the direction of world peace. They give Homo assurance that nations are approaching the Lime when they shall have respect for law. Armistice day in the year 1920 is rich In assurance, therefore, of [)ea.ce. But the real test Is soon to come. Will we put away some of these vast armaments which are not for peace jut for war? In view of all of our :>rotestatlotiM for peace, are we not willing to seal our faith with our deeds ind reduce the stupendous machines fit for nothing on earth except to do .hat which we profess we are not gong to do? An armed world Is a Ightlng world. And peace pacts, whatever may be their terms' or how universal their applieatl >n, will not make t otherwise. If the nations are not willing to reduce drastically their Implements of war, we cannot hope to realize what tho peace pacts imply. It is often said that war between Great Britain and the'United States s "unthinkable." That is lllmsy and Jaded rhetoric. We give plenty of proof that war between the United States and Great Britain Is thinkable [ind that we are thinking about It constantly while building and maintaining ami continuing to increase the most formidable navies in the world. Armistice, therefore, should be a day for renewed efforts In the cause of peace, ns well as a day for rejoicing over achievements already recorded. The world has no need of the stupendous armaments now burdening the people of every nation under tho sun. And the people of the world- should organize and direct public opinion to the end that these armaments be reduced. That would not only be evidence of our faith, but an incalculable blessing to humanity. DEMAND FOR PLAN TO PUT END TO WAR (Continued from Pago 1.) of world peace and Insurance against war. The phrase, "a. war to end war", revived by tho cynical In the years Immediately following tho armistice, as squabbles aroso between nations and the larger powers wnro too enfeebled to compel tranquillity by tho use ot either moral or economic 1 force. But successive steps for war prevention havo been taken ever .since the discard o£ tho Isolationist policies which wero thought to bo America's purpose in rejecting league covenant. Relatively little Is heard about the league, but a great deal about "international cooperation", so much so that this phrase may bo regarded as lha embodiment of American policy. Tho activity of tho American government in tho councils of tho world hits given Europe particularly renewed hopo that a concert of powers can In reality function as a preventive of war. Tho Hoover-MacUonald understanding Included two powers—Great Britain and the United States. It looks toward tho solution of problems In the Atlantic. It Is not always remembered but them is a four-power agreement with reference to problems In the Pacific. It was adopted in 1022 as an accompaniment of tho treaty limiting naval armament. The four powers France, Great Britain, Japan and the United States. These four nations act- Ing In concert can maintain tho peaco of tho world by moral force. IF. thh London conference shall develop into a live-power agreement in- eluding Italy In the treaty, as seems likely if tho naval questions can be settled, then tho world will have witnessed the formation of what might in a sense bo regarded as another International organization for peace, work- Ing along with the league of Nations and Its covenant and treaties and adding to the strength of the Kellogg. Brland treaties as well. For the movement toward the prevention of war by all practical means that nations can devlso is stronger today than it wan eleven years ago, and each year of memory of the sacrifices made In the great war is adding pressure to the urgu for permanent peace.

TEN PER CENT OFF ALL -MEN'S AND BOYS' SUITS AND COATS THIS DAY ONLY. MARCH'S, 122-1 lllli Ave., Altoona. (By United Press.); CAMDEN, N. J., Nov. 11.—Miss Hadys May Parks, a 35-year-old ianist, faced another questioning to- ay In connection with the deaths.and ecret burial of two children committed o her care. Detectives were frank in saying they oubted the story of the woman who urrendercd in Newark yesterday and ubsequently was brought here and put n jail on a charge of murder. The odles of 4-year-old Dorothy Roger! and her brother, Timothy, aged 2, have jeen recovered, the boy's skeleton hav-| ng been found yesterday by state roopers near Absecon after Miss 'arks had given them minute direc- ions as to its location. The woman denied killing Timothy, and Insisted he died from a fall down- talrs. Dorothy, she said, died after being slapped. Questioning- in Newark ind later by police here failed to shake ifiss Parks in her story. She gave ah emotionless recital of the developments since Allen N. Rogers, an insurance igent of -Woodbury, gave her the children to care for after his wife died ast April. Is Cousin to Mother. Miss Parks is a cousin' oE Mrs. Rogers. Two other persons—Anthony Baker, dlss Parks' common-law husband, and Seorge W. Parks, her father—are be- ng held here as material witnesses. Detective Sergeant Louis Shaw indicated that today's questioning would- eek to determine whether charges of attempted blackmail against Miss s ark« could be substantiated'. "Four well known Philadelphia .men and three from Atlantic City have told is of her game," Shaw said. "We, will not reveal their names because the nen need not be mixed up in this af- air. She used these children (Tim>thy and Dorothy) >and others to con- 'ront the men she was trying to blackmail. She would tell them the children were theirs." Unmoved In Her Story. Miss Parks was unmoved In descrlb- ng the death and burial of the children. She said she was afraid she would bo charged with murder if she told police about what she apparently considered the accidental deaths of Timothy and Dorothy. According to Miss Parks confession, she had been trying for some time to discipline Dorolhy and slapped her frequently. On Aug, 7 she had occasion to slap Dorothy. Miss Parks said the girl fell to the floor, but thinking Dorothy was shamming she left the •oom. Returning later and finding the child still on the floor, she tried to 'evive her by using rubbing alcohol. It was then, Miss Parks said, that she realized Dorothy was dead. Shortly after that Miss Parks moved, carrying Dorothy's body from her old lomo to ono on Burns street in a suitcase. At the Burns street'house she found tho concrete flooring broken in several places, so she said she dug a lole and placed the girl's body under :he floor. On Aug. 26 she dug up the body, wrapped it in a sheet and took t to National park, pouring quicklime on it and hiding it under some leaves whero It was found recently .by two children.

Kerlin's Going Out of Business Sale that it was utterly impossible to wait on everybody, even with the large extra salesforce. It is rather hard for an extra salesman to come Into a strange store and give the same service to the customer that ono of the regular men can, and we would ask you to be a little patient with them. Everything advertised is In stock for sale at the lime the advertisements are written but you will have lo remember that an advertisement must be prepared two days before you see it, it must be in the hands' of the' newspaper twenty-four hours before tho paper goes to press, so you see in Uvo days many items advertised may be sold by the time the paper reaches you. Play the safe way, come In and look around, every thing is in plain prices, ijo your own salesman, if you soe something you like make a note of it, and as soon as a salesman i.s not busy he will be glad to wait on you. Don't pass by the greatest op- poriunity you have ever had to save money, "the most outstanding sale W£ I'vi-r attended" said hundreds of customers thut huvo visited this sale. Remember everything in this three story building must go regardless, of prici! or cost. Think of your future needs, are you going to need new car. pets or linoleum in the spring? If go why not save now. What about yoijr Christmas needs, spinet desks, cedar clu-sls, smokers, lamps, pictures, en4 tables, boud-olr lamps, novelties, etc. Remember this greatest of all galea lasts until the walls and floors are bare. The address, you know, is 800 Eighth avenue. HARRY J. KERLIN. ..i,»j» fr ., .__ Adv.
