They have improved highways., which are often extensions of the borough streets. They have the sumo water, electric light and telephone service, and often con- ueotion with tUo city sewerage system. The only seuso in which they differ i'rom the urban residents is tho lack o£ police protection. When tires occur the volunteer companies respond to Sires In the suburbs as they do to calls from the borough. True, they have to pay tuition for their children who are students In the borough high school, but this is not hur- donsomo nor lu it a continuing expense, terminating when their last child has completed tho course o£ instruction. Tho suburban residents havo an appreciation of these advantages which the-y cannot easily be induced to surrender. The better way would seem to prevail upon them to agree to anne-sation. Such, an arrangement would increase tUe resources of the municipality and aid In a more equitable distribution of the tax burden and entitle the- suburbanites to all the advantages tbo borough luib to give Sis residents.

By DAVIT) J A.WRKNCB (Copyright 1030 I y The CourUr.) WASHINGTON, Hii 18.--Premier Mac-Donald's plan to abolish battleships is like tho British suggestion Cor tho e x t e r m i n a t i o n of tho .submarine--it is a h r . p o rather than :ui expectation. Practically a l l t'ie outgivings from tho American dele ration at se\, from London and froiii Tokio, indicate clearly t h a t the pi-ellmlnary work ot the forthcoming boncion naval conference was very general and that no specific agreement i havo bcon entered into by any ot the nations as a result of tho Informal conversations that havo been goinj ou for several mouths, "VVhat DIP confe.-ence will try lo do, of cours*:'. Is to anompt ;ui agreement ou the uinjor questions starling with tho lavxest caterory of all, namely, the battleship arid extend! og downward to sulimar ties and auxiliary craft. It is not serlou -ily supposes! here by navAl niou Uiat the British U^verii- ment ia ready to abandon the battleship entirely, btu that Prime- Mln'.uter MaeDoaald thinKs the size may bo limited and that aorno understanding ou replacements can be effected. The American Govoi nment is quite- will- lug to consider replacements because In recent years the introduction of air combat, tofether with tho grout emphasis that been placed ou the fast and p o w e r f u l cruiser,, has diminished somcwha* the enthusiasm for tho battleship. It will always be- regarded as nu essential part of the fleet but the si/o and number of battleships is not as important today aa Jt was when tlio 1921 conference met. Tho battleship, however, Is an important talkin;: 'point and a pivotal question £or tiie other naval powers who are- not posse-iced of as many 'big ships-as tho United States and Greuf Britain. They would welcome a cut in ( h o _ battleship program and it it, believed here- that Mr. MacDonald will attempt 10 keep down the submarine and cruiser demands of Franco and Italy as well as Japan by arguing for : greater limitation on battleship building. Though th problems aro numerous and complex, tho belief Is growing in Washington t h a t some Iclnd of an agreement wll bo possible, but uot as ambitious i reduction or limitation will be deter nlned upou as had been hoped last year. There is also a suspicion that moH ot the sacrifices) will have to ie made by C3reat Britain and the United Slates in or dor to bring Franc-', Italy and Japan into accord. Tin question, of course, ol finances Is more acute- than it was 10 yeara ago and a material reduction lu iko armament budget would meet with overwi.clnilng support in all countries. This gtveb iho negotiators an easier approach than in 1U21 when nationalism was r u n n i n g high notwithstanding tho weakened financial condition ol European countries. Presideut Hoover recognizes the importance o£ having the Lomlo'.i con- t'eretu'e rea -h an agreement that will cut expensi s everywhere, but it ap- po;m' that it a reduction in al\ uate- Ijoites of -uips cannof he accont- p!ishel i t j _ q u i t e likolv that Hie conference wi l lio permitted to adjourr with aa m ten agreement aa possible on certain poiliis, and with nu tuidor- atandine that f u t u r e conferences will the problem of naval T!i«? spirit of tho A n i ^ r l CHII rir!"S;i' t)on |p r*f rrnrao, nji'i t i m ( U beni u p m r**turtton all H!OD^ t t i e PARROT DISEASE IS NOTHING NEW VT7T7 GOSH'!

In all tho discussion of a Medltar- "accord," which Is only another word for alliance, tho delegaUB from tho United States will havo to remain aloof. Great Britain v.ill dom nata the conference because- H!H takes the leading role in European politics. It some sort of politic il agreement can be reached wi li France and Italy, 1t will aid the I5rl(- iah in cutting down their fleet. Having accepted , the principle of parity with tho United Stales, the British can only got American consent b r bringing their fleet down to a si'/.e that will make it possible for tho United States actually to reduce "x- pecses. It is talcou for granted that Great Britain doea flot wish to have a fleot larger than Uiat of tho United States, but ii! European'politics compel her to maintain a certain standard for her own doteuso, then the United States would be compelled to builo upward in order to achieve parity. ,' Tho problem is really one ot British and continental politics with Uiu American delegation restrained from acting as mediators, except in an abstract and informal way and without committing the United States lo «iy ot the suggested treaties of original character that will be discussed at London, as a foundation for armament reduction.
