We FeariWqr-Bul That : 7s Not Enough Never has tliere been .-as much talk itbont world pesice as in Uie lust 12 months. The iipproadiing naval eonferencu at London is Ijiingiiig (his iie.-ice l;ilk to a focus. The hopes of tlie world are high again. People are beginning to realize that the slogan of tlie hist wnr—"the war to em! war"—nwy, lifter all, be brought to fruition. This in an accomplusliment. It has only been within recent years Hint people have dared to dream of a reign of ensuring peace. The lasl wnr frightened us—no question about it. It gave us a dark vision of the human race blowing its own head off, nnd (he fright born of that vision is pushing us into naval conferences, anti-war treaties and world court agreements at a rate we never would have thought possible. But the'job isn't dune yet, anil there is iio.'sensc in our being too hopeful. H. M. Tomlinson, the British war correspondent and novelist, sounds a time- • ly note of warning. The .fear that has brought us tins far on the road to peace will not, lie. says, take us all of tlie way, "It 'is no good thinking a wholesome fear of war will prevent war," he says. "That is but a negative virtue. What we want is a positive desire for p;ace so passionate if it is threatened that statesmen and diplomatists will fear the democracy rather more than they fear, the wrath of God - • • /. ^ ••. i -•. i "Let them once rcaliEu 'that war means the march 01 a populace on its own .capital to prevent an iniquity, and war-minded statesmen and officials will go the way of the plague rats and smallpox. "Let us make no mistake about it. Reduction of armaments is not good enough. It is no good talking that .way in this age of machines manned by myriads of .organized craftsmen with their standardized opinions. Airplanes and submarines to destroy homes and cut off sea-borne supplies can be made like fountain pens when required. "Let our governors know that we not only do not want war, but desire peace as we do sunlight, and let 11,07,1 understand that if we don't get it Americans OUTOU1MYAY will attend drastically to Washington and Londoners to UK; neighborhood of Whitehall—und peace will then be its natural to us as money is to bankers," That bit of advice mijfht be taken to heart by every Ainerittiti. It is, after till, the old story once more—we can have anythiHg on earth we want, provided only tintt we want il badly enough. We can have peace, from now to the end of time, if we really want it; if we want il, that ic, enough to insist, in season and out of sea-on, that we are going to iuu'c it. The London conference is iinjjorti'.nt, but what liapiKiis afterward will be more important. Our statesmen are on tbe rjtfbt p;iU). The nsl is up to us. A Jury In Three Hours In New Jersey another of I hose "sensational" munlcT iriiiJs opens; and tlie unusual feature of the first day's procedure was the fuel thai the jury was .selected and -sworn in in only three hours. Usually in a bijr murder trial it takes anywhere from a day to a week to jfcl a jury, under our archaic American court procedure. We're all familim- with the process; the endless, fatiguing (u > lay that it involves is so common, in fact, that when a jury happens to be chosEii promptly we're deeply surprised. There is no real reason, however, why three hours time wouldn't be .sufficient to select a jury in rmy criminal casa. That il so seldom is simply prove* that our court procedure is in H reat need of revision. Job had ills trials, of course, but in thos sopranos couldn't broadcast. e [lays Sometimes a briile can't take her cake and eat It, loo.

Bald-headed people are usually diplomatic £«ys a doctor. You'll have to admit they're pretty smooth. A headline says "U of Chicago Adds 423 s n- dents for Quarter." Must :,avc opened a de- paitmen! of Scoitlsh education. A mcvlc producer has been trying to find a haughty princess in casting- a new show.

The csm- niitlee studied 185 proposals. TJIO one most favored, next to th; ili- month calendar, is a 12-nmii.i lilan which equalized the rout- quarters of the year. In 1927, the league suggested to all nations selection of committees to sound public senii- jnent and report. Secretary of stacc Kellogg sanctioned unofficial r.-p. resentation from several of our yov- crnmenfdepartnients on the American committee and the chairman is George Eastman, a vigorous supporter of simplification. Our committee was the first to repart, tD the league, citing prepondcfaii 1 .opinion in favor 'of the 13-nuiiih fixed calendar but expressing tilt- belief that "the best plan waiilil emerge after discussion in an international conference. The league is now awaiting rc- ports from committees of olheV nations. Its assembly has placed the subject of'calendar reform on the agenda of the next meslln.; of the Pourih General Confere-nc'; on Communications and Trans!' In 1D31, a conference of offlcli! government delegates. Some definite international program .is Itks- ly to emerge from that, conference, although! ' it does not seem likely that^the calendar will be changoii by 1933 as many of th? simplification enthusiasts hope.

When men ftTOw old, their wants again become few—quiet corners, tnondly faces, peace. But in the years between, men and women are living and developing to the full extent of their powers. Then their wants are legion. People today are wanting and getting more things that make ior complete living than ever before To these common needs of every one of the advertise-' ments in this newspaper bring invaluable opportunities or satisfaction every day. It is the function of the advertisements to enable you not only to get what you want—but to get the very best that your money can buy. They help you to decide which automobile, which set of furniture, which radio to buy. Ihey assure you that your wants will be more than met—that they will be wisely and completely satisfied. Thc minutes you spend in reading the advertisements may bring you years of satisfaction
