FRIDAY EVENING, JANUARY 14, 1927 LAST EDITION An article In one of the current magazines says the reason so many men today use cosmetics is that I cave-men have no appeal for the modern woman. I Nor do the fops appeal to woman. Too much o" the false in the make-up of a man, or woman, does not make for admiration. 1 Today, as long ago, the most 'popular man. as well as the mosi popular woman, must be possessed of common sense which avoids ex- tremes in dress or manners. i I Speaking before the New York club, William Allen White of Kansas, declared If ad- vertising should stop, slow decay would follow and ultimately the '.world of business would collapse. When one is made aware that half a billion dollars of patent med- icines alone are sold every year by Advertising, the truth of Mr. White's I statement is confirmed. The Americans are the greatest advertisers in the world, and that is one reason why they are lead- ing. It also explains the envy, and i ;calousy directed at Americans. News and Views is requested to sive tho number of Utah men en- listed in tho World war. Utah sent men into thft army, navy and marine corps. The lowest number of troops was from Nevada, 5412. and the highest frojxi .New York, Pennsylvania iwas second The total iwa's Of ..that total about two million the'ocean, but only Iwero killed-in action.

Not less than a million." men would be necessary to make an ag- rgreesive move. The national guard :has and the regular army approximately But there will be no war with -.Mexico. Although the Mexicans delight in bluff, they have suffi- cient good sense not to provoke the i-'United States to action. A. university professor has in- I verted a device, consisting of ten ;thih bismuth plates protected by !a coating of sulphur, which is ex- ipected to take the place of bat- Aeries and ..vacuum tubes in radio The bismuth plates, it is claimed, generate enough energy to 'operate the radio, and serve as de- lector and amplifier. -One of-the large radio supply houses expressed doubt that the bismuth plates will generate the required current. The will of the late Charles S. 1'ase, oil man in Tulsa, Okla., leaves the entire estate of to charity, What would happen if all our 1 wealthy men were to leave their es- j tates to charity? I Our industrial organizations constantly would be upset by the distribution. Charity, only to a limited ex- tent, can serve any good. Pure charity gives without demanding i services, and is an exhausting of capital investment. f H. G. Wells, the great English author, is writing a series of articles to prove that the human life-cycle is changing visibly. Human life, he says, is different from what it has ever been before, and it is rapidly becoming more different. "The ways and expediences of our i children's children promise to be profoundly different from the life we lead at the present time." Wells quotes from Dr. Norman Haire to show that since 1900 the I average length o2 human life has I been increased 12 years, which' I means that the hope of survival for I every infant born has been in- creased in 25 years by about a third. The time is coming when nearly every child born' into a civilized community will live to maturity. Today there are in every thou- sand modern Atlantic population 20 infants under one year of age. In oriental cities in which medieval conditions still prevail, something like 50 out of a thou- sand population are infants. That was true before the- day of our great-great-grandmothers. But in those days, and now in the orient, 30 or more of the 50 'ase doomed to die in childhood. Fewer children are being brought into the world, but more children are livinc on to maturity and even old asrj.i Wells expects mari t6 marry much later, have a smaller family, and instead ot breaking down at on Page ITwoj., Woman, Age 122, Is Dead T In Lalijomia POMONA, Cal., Jan.
