It Is the Implied threat contained In t!i<> League of Nations covenant which Is keep many or tho smaller European nations from aveng- ln;; alleged injustices by going to war. The famous rlebnte on Article 10 has never ended. While pnch nation Is the judge of whether It will join in punishing a nation that violates the covenant of tho league or the Kellogg-Brlancl treaties, there • is no doubt that physical force Is the fundamental method by which the League Of Nations has hope to enforce peace. Mr. Hoover hiis opened up only a part of the whole subject. To be consistent now the United States, In its efforts to localize war, or at Icnst lo reduce Its awfulness, will not only be required to open Its food granaries to civilian populations of helli<,'iti\.'nt countries but will /Ind 11 dlfllc'ilt to permit the export of arms iml nm- munltlon of money to belligerent governments. All.efforts to got tlifl United ,'Hiiten lo agree on treaties thiit would prohibit tho export of nrms find ammunition have hitherto fulled; the American government Htlll reserves the right lo furnish the sinews of war to belligerents. All such questions as what food shall be exported and whether munitions shall be provided belligerent countries really turn upon the question of whether a nation that violates Its treaties or obligations should have nny assistance. The League of Nations feels that no help of any kind should be extended and that the knowledge of possible discomfort to civilian population lias been 'tho mosl powerful Influence In restraining governments from going to war. All these, questions are bound to be pursued as a xequel to the London naval conference, with the possible result that out of the whole dlHcuHHlon may come a compromise between the views of the Geneva league and those of President Hoovr. if out of It all comes any Inlvi-nntlonal- ngreement which can be universally adopted, 11 will mean real progress toward International cooperation. But the biggest hurdle to auvmount IK whether tho world is to rely on moral forcn or is to apply physical force to prevent conflict as well aa to punish those nation* who go to wnr in violation of their obligations under Iho Kcllogg- Brland treaties. LESS HYSTERIA OVERJEACTION (Continued from Page 1.) uattan a crucial test of the "new economics," which, along with the "new Tammany," has been an Interfl.itlng Innovation of recent years. Tho now Tammany has just been swallowed by the old ono. Ai the market wallows along on Us downward course, there Is still no record of any important failure. Whilo it li known that a number of brokers have taken tremendous losses), no wire house has succumbed, An abundance of money for market loans Is given as . ».the explanation ot this resistance to Shocks wHIch have been worse than disastrous a few yours ago. It is also observed that tho crisis came at a time when every index of business conditions ,was favorable. One Wall Street operator today gave this writer his views on tho present situation an follows : "It would bo foolish to deny that this situation is serious, but we ought to remember that the stock isn't all of. America. A largo proportion of stock speculation, so far as tho public Is concerned, IB confined to New York and Chicago and one or two other big cities. "Take all of rural America lumped together and you will llnd a mighty small section of it cither dlreclly or evon mildly inlorosled In the stock market. Crop movements, production and distribution, consumption and all the rest oflt is going on as usual, and as long as the underlying credit structure of the country is sound—and it i* —there won't be any great disaster. "We have two things to consider. First, a population of 130,000,000 persona, conditioned to a higher standard of living than any other people, past or present. Second, ample credit ro- werves to keep the wheels turning. With this foundation, tho stock market can take a lot of hammering. ^-|th- out really endangering tho prosperity of the country. Of courso, there will be * slowing up, but the psychological deflation has already taken pjnco, and now we can get down to essentials."

These will be placed In service as soon as the cleaning is completed in the upper basin. Mr. Bcal expressed himself as being pleased with tho Job. The improvements, In his opinion, will place th« sysiem on a very substantial and satisfactory basis and eliminate all possibility of danger, while at the name time they will greatly increase the storage capacity, RED CROSS DRIVE OPENS JN COUNTY (Continued from Page 1.) and Tirol aid work. A special aim will be to conduct a school of Instruction for city employes and which will bo open lo any others who desire lo take the course. There will also be other activities formulated providing sufficient funds are secured through thn membership drive. One of thorn will bu the continuation of aid to disabled soldiers and to be better prepared to meet calamity that might be visited upon the community. City Treasurer John R. Martin Is chairman of tho drive In the city and D. Emmert Brumbaugh of Claysburg in chairman for the county area.

The numerous teams will also make a. canvass. It Is especially urged, that those who happen to be missed by a membership campaigner enclose .their membership fee and ma.ll -tho same to the Red Cross headquarters in tho Commerce building. KAISER'S SISTER DIES INJERMANY (Continued from Page 1.) Prussia, Victoria Inherited 6. firm belief In love. As a. young girl she foil In love with Prince Ferdinand of Battenberg, later prince of the Bulgars, but for political reasons thn two lovers were separated.

Later Victoria married Prince Adolf if Schaumburg-Llppe, who died In 916, leaving her a castle at Bonn Into vhlch she had moved furnishings and >riceless heirlooms handed down to ler by liqr mother. As a Hohenzollern princess, her pres- Ige fell with that of the kaiser, but till she 'managed to reign almost as a. queen among her circle at Bonn. Then at a soiree she met a dashing roung man named Zoubkoff, a tranger In town, who wore flannel rouHRi-B, trifle too short for his long egs, but who told stories of the sea ml of mighty hardships endured. He could have told her, If he did ml, that he was born in a little Rus- lan town not far from Moscow of a Dvorlnnln" family—the lowest of lusfllan nobility—and that he was orco.d to flee from Russia in the revo- itloii of 1917 when he was a fresh- nan at Moscow university. Me could .have told of his attempts o earn a living In Esthonia, and then s nn orrtlnai-y sailor out of Finland nd Norway, He willingly admitted to veryone else, and probably to the en- apt Victoria, that he then became a ramp in Berlin, visiting free lunch ounters and sleeping In railway sta- on.i, and finally washing dishes and ppearlng in "mob" scenes for the 1ms, A desire to make a "touch" of a Istant relative brought him to Bonn nd fnlo Victoria's life. Teas, tennis matches 'and other entertainments irew the two together.

But In, November, 3027, the two were . marrlL'U—the princess, 62 years old, oubkoff, 28. She promptly touched 1m on the head with a sabre belong- ng to her august brother and knighted 1m as "Baron" Koubkoff. Then trouble began. "Baron" Zoub- oll saw no need of working when Vic- orla. hud money. His visits away rom the castle becamo more frequent nd longer. He beat a page boy in Berlin night club find was fined. "Come back and I'll forgive," said he princess, believing it was only ormal for H. young man to indulge an occasional fancy. But the prince fell off a motorcycle while intoxicated. Germany found him .n undesirable foreigner and barred ilm. So did France and Belgium. He ook refuge in Luxembourg. His creditors presented their bills to he princess. The former kaiser was ilghly angered by the whole affair. Swallowing her pride, the princess tarted an auction of her castle fur- ilshings Oct. 15 to pay off her hus- land'a debts. She raised ium, but not enough.

PITTSBURGH'S TAX LEVY TO BE RAISED NEXT YEAR PITTSBURGH, Nov. 13.—It was thought today that the tax levy of the city of Pittsburgh probably would be raised 1% mills in 1930 in order to take care of the proposed boost In pay for all city police and firemen. The pay raise was voted at the primary, Sept. 17, and is expected to be voted upon favorably by city council. The present millage 1 is 25 mills on land and 12% mills on buildings and the hew rate would be 26% mills on land and 13% mills on buildings. Robert Garland, chairman of the councilmanic finance committee, declared yesterday that the tax boost Is virtually certain, W. Y. English supplemented this forecast and set the probable increase at a mill and a half. English said: "An increased tax levy is bound to come if the police and firemen's wages are to be increased. It would certainly be foolish for council not to raise their wages after the people voted for it."

NEW YORK, Nov. 13.—All jumbled up with ideas for Christmas and for Thanksgiving, are thrilling plans for a wardrobe to be worn where it is always -June—or something of that tind. Rather naturally one yearns to <now what the best .color promises o be for everybody knows there is always a ''Palm B«ach color." A new flower tone has been In- roduced for this season, 'a spicy resh pink which is aptly enough ermed carnation. Rose pink, carnation pinks, geran- um rose—these colors are in t|he iscendant of spring silk fashions, and are attracting more interest than has )een bestowed on this color family or many seasons. The tas^e for hem aeems to be a natural development, for the colors are' appearing n all classes of silk fabrics for sports, ayttme and evening.. Even prints are showing some, partiality for pink and rose shades, the rather strong geranium rose (a light rose-re'd) being presented by some French fabric reators as a. ground color for sports and evening" prints. The lighter hades are very frequent in. printed latterns on dark crepes, especially on ilack and bro\yn. When used on ilack it is usually combined-with pale ky blue to good effect. ^Pink shades with a little yellow n them, similar to the color asso- iate3 with Vionnet, but often a little deeper in intensity, are at the top of the list, and are* expected to. be most popular in plain crepes for peotator or active sportwear land n chiffons and heavy georgettes for ivening wear. This cast 3s considered ispecially becoming to sun , tanned xploitation, since it is equally wear- Lble by those who are tanned only Ightly or quite heavily. It is amusing to note that the trend oward these colors is reflected in Tint designs also, nearly every col- ection of chiffon prints and many if crepe patterns containing at least me design based on the small pink IF carnation.
