Dangerous Playthings I'laying children usually, risk all kinds of more or serious accidents. Because of thti .special providence that seems lo look after chikh'en, most of them go unscalh«l, except fur scraped knees and .sprained wris/.s; but a recent radio address by David Hi-snick, of the National Association for the Prevention, of iBIimlncss, indicates some of the more serious hazards the youngsters run. "Among the games of boyhood," he points out, "important causes of eye accidents are the realistic cowboy, Indian and racketeer games which make necessary the use of air rifles, blank pistols or bows and arrows . . . Apparently there are many parents who do not realize! the obvious mistake in trusting children witli such dangerous loys and weapons as these." The responsibility js always the par*- cuts'. Toys such as Mr. Ri-snick has mentioned are too dangerous for boys to use* without adult supervision. Every parent should bear the.fuel in mind. Candidates Weil Chosen There can be little disagreement with the choice of tho four famous Americans \vho-u busts were unveiled in New York University's Hall of Fame the other day. These four—as you probably know- were I'residunl James Monroe; James A. McNcill Whistler, the artist; Matthew Fontaine Maury, the oa-nn- ographer, and Walt Whitman, the poet. Whitman and Maury belong there beyond any question; Whitman as one of the greatest of all poets, and .Maury as an extremely useful scientist whose work has been invaluable to sailors for gciif-'ralions. Whistler, while not among the greatest of artists, left work that will ciuiuru for many years; and Monroe, at the very least, will be remembered as long as the Monroe Doctrine lasts. The name-; of these four will live for a long lime. Their inclusion in the Hall of Fame was very fitting. TUESDAY, JUNK 2, 193iB The Faith In Force. the the i Taxing The Million-Heirs The whole 'question of how taxes shall be spent and how they shall Lc raised comes up as the government contemplates a Jnigc delieit and listens to criticisms about the 1 vast expenditure of money by the army and navy. Regardless of sincere attempts to economize, it is evidcjpM.J]at the cost of government will increase as the years go on. quite apparent, then, that the major problem is detcrminiilg new sources of revenue. Many men, including Senator Coux- cns, believe that the rich men should be taxed more. That might handicap capitalists; .using their fortunes lo develop industry and give men jobs. It is a question for debate. But one source of wcajth seems a logical source for increased taxation. Inheritance taxes on millions left by persons who diq could bo larger—perhaps as much as 50, per cent. Such taxes would swell revenues markedly. And after all, is there any ireason why heirs of millionaires, should never be forced to labor? Jlost .of us arc compelled to start at; scratch. Sir Roger Keyes, admiral of British fleet and commander of Portsmouth Naval Station, declares that reduction of the British navy as a step towards peace is nothing but "blind folly." Sir Roger explains that treaties, pacts and leagues are all very well in their way, but that they must be backed by powerful armaments or they mean nothing. Trusting in such methods without a force behind them, he adds, would bo like trusting in laws without a police force lo Hack them. Probably it would be asking too much to expect admirals to give up their old faith in force as a means of settling human disagreements. But the rest of us, at least, need not listen. If the World Win- proved anything, it proved the utter futility of relying on force in, international affairs. If the admirals cannot perceive that lesson the ordinary citizen ought to lie able to.

SIDE GLANCES By George Clark TODAY IS A ARMY OFFICEK OKIUCK On June 2, 1017, migadier General Henry P. McCain, adjutant general ot the army, Issued a stale- ncnt revealing plans for (he traln- ng of officers for the drafted forces. His loiter said In part: "To provide officers for the draflcd forces of the national army, the War Department has adopted Use policy of commissioning new officers of Hie line (Infantry, cavalry, field ami coast guard arllllery) purely on tlv; basis of demcnslraicd ability, utter three months' observation and training In the officers' training camps.

It Is proposed to officer further increments raised under the draft by promotion from the ranks of the regular army, the National Gimrd. ami drafted forces previously In service." On this day General Von Htn- dcnburg announced that the Frenuh and British offensive had come to a definite conclusion. The French Wnr Office reported tho capture of 52,000 prisoners.

(UP)— Virtually every state and territory conlrib- utcd last year lo amass almosl S7,- 300.COD for expenditures on state foreslry, fire control, extension and reforestation, the Fcrcst Service of the Agriculture Department hfre announced recently after completing a summary of state ano territorial expenditures last year. State forest work has shown i total gain of $-'.,000.000 in the last two years. Forest Service officials pointed out, and has been successful in extending fire proteclion and reforeslation to several million acres of foresl lands. In the past year over 82.500,000 was spent by the states for flrc protection and upwards of $1,000.000 for reforestation projects. During the same time $2,300,000 was sp3nt for additional purchases and maintenance. among the chemists, engineers, clerks, guards, mes£?ugcrs and other employes. The same authority reports' that Zachcry Taylor, James K. Polk, Andrew Johnson and Woodrow Wilson are aho lo be found in thq local lelephoi!3 directory. HII'-rOCKET OMELET BKLL1NG11AM.

Congress has always given veterans what they wanlcd, sooner or lalov. The principal dampening factor will be the huge treasury deficit. No one expects forgiveness by the nexl Coi^ress, which, however, is likely to pass a widow's pension bill. If and when veterans' iontis arc forgiven the total of them probably will have exceeded $1,500,000,000.
