SecondClass Matter I J an or The reward of one duty Is the power to fulfill ELIOT ANEW ALLIANCE rpHE joint statement by President Hoover and Prime Minister MacDonald which culminated the latters visit to Washington with an announcement of hints at AngloAmerican cooperation in international af fairs from this time forthwill set diplomatic circles agog all over the world That It will be received with indignation in Paris goes without saying it will be taken there aa confirming their suspicions that an AngloAmerican entente is in the making Since en tente literally means no more than understanding that is true But in the diplomatic sense an entente is next door tb an offensiveTdefensive alliance andthat is certainly not what has beenarranged between the heads of the two governments The tripleentente of England France and Russia existing before the war included definite plans for joint military action In certain contingencies with an exchange of notes defining the circumstances under which such arrangements should come into force Cer tainly nothing like this is contemplated by Mr Hoover and Mr MacDonald Yet it is certain that the state ment wiiich clearly indicates an effort on the part of Washington and London to stand together in world affairs has much more behind it than pious plati tudes On the surface it is no more than a joint dec laration that as between themselves each nation ae cepts the fullest implications of the Kellogg treaty but It suggestion of an understanding on world af fairsin general goea much further than that If as is hinted in Washington the understanding is to be the basis of negotiations and final agreement if possible on a new code of maritime law It means much less in practice than AngloAmerican cooperation to control the seven seaawhich could pjieratloa to peace stretched to Its IT If broad it imperfectly apparent El statement sets forth the belief of the two i that the administra tions thatthe re shouldbe close teamwork in world between Washington and London It is equally 3 evident that the prime ministers visit to Washington i was meant to advertise to the world a new orienta of British world policy AH the circumstances de signed to make the visit carry Importance and sig nificance show that Mr Hoover must have known the prime ministers thingsare always thoroly discussed in advance It is obviously a ma lured turn of policy How far the French have ground for their sus picion that this bodes ill for French Interests depends upon the nature of the agreements which are to be reached under the new understanding So far the matter is so diplomatic in statement that only its broadest implications appear These are to the effect that hereafter Britain is turning her face to the United States and her back on the continent in ef fect That is important but hard to understand until incidents begin to take place But the diplomatic world very well realizes that a new alignment Is to be reckoned with hereafter EVALUATING THE SUBMARINE IpjISCLOSURES made thru the BritishAmerican ap proach to Japan on the naval conference suggests J two outstanding items One is that Great Britain and Ithe United States shall reach naval parity by The other is that the submarine shall be abolished Any reaaoningperson will accept asa fact that for i Sreat Britain and the United States to achieve naval parity by pressing a button is entirely Impossible and a period for working out the formulae will be eded Thepoint should not be controversial altho jjno doubt both American and British Jingoeswill seek Ito make capital out of It Abolition of the submarine can bo strongly de on the ground of humanity The sinking of Jthe Lusitania some thirteen years ago was a horror to great as still to live vividly in memory The sub 1 marine is the ambush of the sea It is a beast of prey in the dark Itisthe thug of Mars If it can said that in any event war ia manly the submarine jLsno part of manly warfare On the other sideof the score is the fact that the i lubmarine undoubtedly is the best and cheapest de fense of the smallmaritime nation Many defenders of j the idea that the United States while rejecting of I fenslvewarfare should be defensively equipped have the submarine and the airplane as practically that is necessary to coastal defense Probably public sentiment in allnations cxcept Ung where by propaganda will approve the an to outlaw tiie submarine It has a bad record It lendsitself to abuses It has no part in tho legitimate jjpolicing of the seas and coasts of the world la I wars knife in the boot It represents the deadly and t venomous It would seem that any movement cventu ally to outlaw war must begin by removing the In of the most barbarous phases of warfare President Hoover commenting upon the visit here IS of Premier Ramsay MacDonald observes that the of the greeting accorded the premier every where in America is far more significant than any conversations that have taken place In a way that is trui but we still believe that in the minds of the pub lic that common mannish incident of the leaders of the two countries fitting on a log and discussing vworld destiny in terms understandable in a hotel lobby or a barber shop la even more significant For that showed how farPresident Hoover and Premier MacDonald had withdrawn from all the precedent and red tape that have been employed by wily chancellories to de fend and promote war as an Institution of Interna tional relations MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE AVOIDING WORRY F YOU find yourself putting things off without

and In the resume of the caloric values you have two heaping leaspoonfuls One of these is wrong I imagine it is the two heap ing tablespoonfuls Can you give me the caloric value of avocado bran and a cup of flour MISS B Yes the two heaping tablespoonfuls is wrong Miss B This error occurred in a late printing I noticed it and have sent on a correction to my publisher None of the food laboratories have ever included in their lists the caloric value of avocados or alligator pears they are rather recently grown in the United but from the high percentage of fat in them I would reckon the caloric value as 100 calories to the two ounces or fonr rounding tablespoonfulg of the pulp Flour 1 cup unsifted weighs 4 ounces and is approximately 460 calories Sifted it weighs onehalf ounce less 4 so is
