Md.. u *eeand c]«»*mail matter. Saturday Morning, February 27, 1932 GEORGE WASHINGTON No other commanding personage in modern history has withstood tha blight of time and the voices and pens of would-be detractors as has George "Washington, whose 200th birthday anniversary was observed last Monday and will continue to be celebrated during 1032. Napoleon, who came into the picture of "super men" after Washington had completed his greal missions, perhaps is passing from the affectionate memory of other than his own country and the lustre of his military glory is fading until the worlci is changing its appraisal of the man soldier and ruler. Washington has been the target foi assaults hurled by unkind pens tlmt are unable to make a dent in the glory that has been his almost a century und a half. The authors excuse their as saults on the ground that they have sought to show him as a man subjected to the short-comings of others, iiy this they have endeavored to prove, they declared, that Washington was a man of flesh and blood; neither better nor worse than his fellows. Such attacks have achieved no real pui- pose. Washington remains as the greatest American and the outstanding commanding figure of the world in his day, and he will ever remain fragrant in the memory of all Americana as the "Father" of our country, who first won it from Great Britain and raised the fruit of his conquest into the greatest nation in the world. He built it from foundation to apex, organized the government and showed the world how a republic functions. In those early days we enjoyed the greatest government efficiency that has ever been ours and from which we have taken much light. Indeed the precepts of President Washington still stand as lighthouses to administrations even up to the present one, and his addresses and decisions, his warnings and declarations still stand as the best guidance for our country. As a youth, an engineer, and as a combatant, Washington fins. excelled by none of his compatriots. As a commander of an army, and head of the fight for liberty and again as a statesman, as a planter, a friend, that the tree of real government mny be seen again. It means that the public's money should be conserved and not thrown away. The public realizes the tremendous problems now confronting government, and sympathizes with the difficulties in the way of solving them. But it will not long continue to countenance waste, extravagance and inefficiency, which find their reflection in the tax bill. ROTARIANS TO DISCUSS TEACE IN THE PACIFIC* Members of the Rotary clubs from practically all nations touching the Pacific Ocean, including Japan and China, are expected to attend the fourth Pacific Rotary Conference at Honolulu, June 12-16, and the twenty- third convention of Rotary International at Seattle, the week following, it is announced in the February "Rotarian." Problems of developing better economic relations in the Orient, and through them the restoration of peace, will be discussed by delegates. The Rotary movement, which started in Chicago twenty-seven years ago this month, has now more than 160,000 members and 3,500 clubs, many of them in Europe, Asia and Australia, as well as the Americas. DID YOU EVER STOP TO THINK? Happy indeed would be the government that could carry on its business without the collection of taxes at all. Its popularity would be unboundec and we venture to think that its sins in other respects would be very largely overlooked. However, that Alice- in-Wonderland-like possibility coulc be hardly worth consideration. Let us say, instead, that happy in deed, would be the government thai was able to levy taxes without the taxpayer being unduly aware of the fact. Unfortunately, although other painful operations have responded in great measure to the advances of science tha anaesthetic has not yet been discovered which can make painless «the withdrawal of any part of a person's ncome for taxes. market have ceased. Foreign nations in retaliation of the Hawley-Snioot Act have added to the tariff walls they began to build following the passage of the Fordney Act in 1922. American foreign trade has suffered a loss of more than 60 per cent, and in the opinion of many experts much of it has been lost permanently unless there can be an international understanding, which is neither likely, if it is possible, under the tariff policy of tlie party to which Mr. Hoover belongs. AH an international economist he lias failed tlie people in tlie greatest economic crisis in history. Do the people living in nn historic age realize the significance and importance of that age? Historical and political writers both Kay they do not. Yet if any era realized its own importance it might be this third decade of the twentieth century, because so many writers and lecturer.-! arc emphasizing (often over-emphasizing) years lazily around $1,200,000,000. In 1919 that debt shot up to $25,400,000,000. In speaking of the deficit of 1931-32 Charles Merz in the New York Times declares, "This was not only the largest peace-time deficit in the country's history, it was a larger deficit in pro- pal tion to income than that of any important government of the world. The deficit of the British Government was six-tenths of one per cent; the deficit of the German Government was O'jier cent; the deficit of our own government was 27 per cent." "The courageous and right thing for the government to do is to stop borrowing and balance the budget and live within its income," states Ogden Mills, new Secretary of the Treasury. "But a man studying his income and expenses or a housekeeper examining her budget would not only stop borrowing, they would spend with more care and they would also immediately ask: What expenditures could be les- Twenty~Five Years Ago Taktn From The Journal of 26 Yaart Atro Thli Week.

There are no names in the annals of America's great men and minds that have approached in excellence and versatility that of Washington, who will ever be recalled by his compatriots for bringing into life free government, and for showing to the world the functioning of a nation for the people and by the people. The lessons to be derived from the bi-ccntennial observances, stories of the Greatest American, should be carefully pondered, especially these days when we are seeking to keep our ship of state in safe and wise channels. TRADE COCKPIT OF THE WORLD HAS SHIFTED TO PACIFIC Developments in Manchuria and at Shanghai confirm a prophecy made by Captain Robert Dollar, eighty-eight year old shipping magnate, before a group of New York's big financiers more than twenty years ago. He declared that the center of the world's commerce would soon shift from the Atlantic to the Pacific. "It caused a great laugh," he reminisces in the current issue of "The Rotarian" magazine, "and when they had finished laughing I said, 'Gentlemen, there is an old saying that "He who laughs last laughs best.' " " 'And do you expect to laugh last?"' asked a certain Mr. Ring. " 'I do,' " I said. "Recently I attended another meeting in New York of the same type of men. And the gentleman who had jollied me two decades before got to his feet and said, 'Men, twenty years ago Mr. Dollar said that the center of the world's commerce was going to be transferred to the Pacific. Mr. Dollar told us he was going to have a laugh. He hasn't laughed yet, but I want to tell you he has a big snicker!' " "Doubtless, the Panama Canal," Mr. Dollar adds, "has accelerated the movement of trade from the West to the East and will continue to do so at an increased speed. The immense populations, the huge supply of labor, the vast undeveloped natural resources--these are considered by factors anyone eye to the equilibrium merce of the future." must be has any of the coin- that who THE TAX CRISIS WD have heard much, in the last year, of the industrial 1 crisis and of the obligations business owes to its employees, its investors and the general public. Business is doing its best to bring light out of darkness, and to live up completely to those obligations. It is now time for government to do what it can to prevent another kind of crisis --that of confiscatory taxation. \ This does not mean that the opera- In 1921, when Herbert Hoover was Secretary of Commerce, and when economic and industrial conditions in this country and abroad were more or less chaotic due to lack of European recovery from tho war and to the refusal of a Republican Congress elected in 1918 to adopt the comprehensive reconstruction program submitted by 'resident Wilson in the spring of 1919, Hoover made a notable address at the National Shoe and Leather Exposition, in which he stated some vital ruths about foreign trade. The following extract illustrates his economic philosophy at the time: I may say in passing that our whole standard of living greatly depends upon our imports and that our experts are the great balance wheel for our productions. Exports are vital to the stabilization of our industries, of price levels, of wages, and of employment. While many of the causes of the present depression lie within our own borders, yet there may be no recovery from these hard times for many years to come if we neglect our economic relations abroad. Here was a plain statement of undeniable economic verities. In face of the conditions then existing and in defiance of the utterances of the Cabinet officer who had been put in charge of the Department of Commerce, one function of which was lo look after and conserve the foreign commerce of the United States, a Republican Congress passed,' and a Republican President with no knowledge of the tariff except the false shibboleths of his party, signed the Fordney- McCumber Tariff bill of 1922. This Act imposed enormous tariff burdens upon consumers and restricted imports to an extent that included even articles that did not enter into serious competition with American products. This was the beginning of the world tariff war which has raged with such intensity since the passage of the Hawley-Smoot bill in 1930 that the foreign commerce of this country, fostered by liberal loans abroad, has now been cut in half, involving a loss of more than five billions dollars. The Hawley-Smoot Act contained 890 increases in rates which affected two- thirds of our dutiable imports under the previous Fordney Act. In the meantime what had become of the economic philosophy of Mr. Hoover, uttered in 1921? As late as 1928 when he was a candidate for President he said in a speech at Boston: To insure continuous employment and maintain our wages we must find a profitable market for our surpluses. The Great War brought into bold relief the utter dependence of nations upon foreign trade. Our total volume of exports translates itself into employment for 2,400,000 families, while its increase in the last seven years las interpreted itself into livelihood for 600,000 additional families in the United States. He did not explain, however, that sure the world that the Disarmament Conference now meeting there murks an epoch and that it is one of the great world events, they state only explicit truth. This is the first Disarmament Conference in the history of the world. Divers and divers judgments arc already being cast upon its meetings. It is useless, futile and must fail say some; it must succeed, say many, or the end of our civilization is at hand. But the great fact stands out: a Disarmament Conference is being held. And if this first conference does not achieve all that is hoped from it others will follow. The first step is definitely taken. Delegates from sixty-four nations are meeting in Geneva. Before each delegate is placed n book on the cover of which is written in big letters Disarmament. Within tlie covers are the subjects for consideration which were decided upon by the Preparatory Commission which held six sessions to consider these topics, the first convening in 1920 and the last closing in December 1930. The chief topics it outlined for consideration are: Limitation of air efTcctives, Limitation of war material, Trained reserves (should they be included in peace-time strength?), Should limitation be direct or budgetary? Use of poison gas, Use of disease germs. The early discussions will take up many topics besides these, but when committees arc- appointed and settle down to work discussions will be along these lines. Tho United States delegation to Geneva has five members: Secretary of State Stimson (who has not yet gone over on account of pressing af- ! fairs here), Senator Swanson, Hugh Gibson, Norman Davis, Dr. Mary Woolley. The story of their trip across the Atlantic on the President Harding has already been much written up. The farewells, the flowers speeches and music; the bringing of last messages by Ruth Nichols Greetings from the Sky, it was headlined; and then from Dr. William Hull, well-known historian and journalist, who is sending special information to then crossing, with the military party mittee comes a word as to the mect- ngs held on board by Senator Swanson and Dr. Woolley, the delegates :he crossing, with the military party (private) and with the representatives of eight peace societies sending representatives over, and these meetings were held in the white light of pub- icity. Then come cables as to the irst meetings of the Conference, and of the ceremony of presenting formally the many signatures and telegrams asking that everything be done to make this conference a success. The number of signatures presented is estimated as being over 5,000,000. Of these 2,000,000 come from Great Britain, 1,000,000 from France, while in the telegrams one from Japan in favor of disarmament aontained 173,000 names. Another of the first steps was the presentation by the delegates of the requests of their governments. Hugh Gibson, in the absence of Secretary Stimson, presented those of the United States. They are: Acceptance of tho Draft Convention prepared for tha consideration oi the conference. Prolongation of the naval agreements concluded nt Washington and London. Further reduction of naval armaments. Total abolition of submarines. Effective measures to protect civilization from bombing from the air. Total abolition of lethal gases and bacteriological warfare. Limitation of armed forces on the States nnd with the rates of proposed increased taxation now being made public (on income, checks and drafts, telephone, telegraph and radio messages; amusement, sales taxes, and many other items) the question now comes, why not.cut off some expenditures as wet) as raise taxes and impose new ones?" The table given may furnish a clue as to points in which cuts might be made. Also it must be rememberet that the Disarmament Conference now meeting furnishes an excellent focus for national and world consideration of the question--that main question-How can we release not only the United States but all countries from this awful burden of armaments resting upon it and, so doing, avoid the possibility of any such bankruptcy from staggering debts in the future? Three interesting points of the Disarmament Conference are not directly concerned with the real work. These are. the new building in which the sessions will be held, which was given for the purpose by the city and canton of Geneva; the new stamp issues and the silver hammer presented as gavel to Sir Arthur Henderson, chairman. The new building was begun in May and formally opened in January. It adjoins the Secretariat with doors leading from one to another. Its two large rooms face the lake and will be used, together with the well- known Glass-room, for the three major committees of land, sea and air. Other committee rooms open from the great vestibule. The press room, one side of which is entirely of glass, gives on the plane trees, and forty-four telephone booths are provided. The Swiss are said to have a liking for new stamp issues to commemorate great events and consequently the Conference is signal for a whole new set. While bronze medals have been struck for the delegates, with a symbol of peace on one side and Calvin's flaming sun, the emblem of Geneva, on the other. Calvin's motto was "Post Tenebres Lux." It is to be hoped that this long awaited conference may indeed bring light after darkness and imprisonment within it. Then Sir Arthur Henderson has been given a hammer of silver to use as gavel with which to rap the table and call the Conference to business. The first two weeks of the Disarmament Conference have brought out Mr. T. Pliny Fisher has been spending several days with Washington friends. Miss Edna Roe has been taken to a Baltimore hospital where she will receive treatment for appendicitis. Mr. J. H.

Japan said that in spite of the present situation Japan was "eager for disarmament." While Hugh Gibson, speaker for the United States, brought out six important points. Child Health and Protection will be forwarded by a nation-wide campaign started in Washington, February 16th. This is intended to follow up the White House conference, and conferences will be held in each state to map out definite child care programs, including recommendations for state legia- laton, appropriations and the setting up of permanent organizations in those states which now lack machinery. A great nunibtr of requests for supervisory help are being received at the White House. by the people.
