Properly answered the National Council for the prevention of War has made a protest against the plans of the United states government for National defense Day to be held in september and president Coolidge has answered it in a letter to the head of the organization. The president in his letter used a conclusive argument when he said Quot i wish that crime might be abolished but i would not therefore abolish courts and police Protection. I wish War might be made impossible but i would not leave my country the protest of this pacifist organization comes at a rather Inopportune time. An american vice Consul has just been murdered on the streets of Teheran the persian capital. Has wife has since then been openly insulted and it is by no Means certain that further trouble will be averted. The United states in making a Strong protest to Persia and that country will be sharply advised that it must protect the lives of american citizens residing there in the interests of duty or business. A lot of effect however such a protest to a Semi barbarous Oriental country would have if the United states were not known to have the Power to Back up its protests in Case they Are disregarded. If this country had no army or Navy a condition to which Many pacifists would like to see it reduced we would be in a Fine Pickle every time some insignificant but truculent Power wished to Quot insult Quot us by murdering a few of our citizens. Although it uses every honorable Means to keep Clear of foreign entanglements the United states is a great world Power. The president therefore will have the Hearty support of a vast majority of our people regardless of their political allegiance in the stand he has just taken on this important question. A Public spirited move words abused in a newspaper office was the theme of a recent discussion and Quot Public spirited Quot was one placed very near the top of the list. However that there Are men in Bakersfield to whom the adjective applies is attested every now and then. Activity in connection with establishment of a Public Camp ground on Frazier Mountain is one instance As persons pushing the project will have nothing for their pains but satisfaction at seeing the tired business Man Given an Ideal Camp site. Made restful by a Cool Breeze through Gigantic Pines the Frazier plateau outdoes Quot sleepy hollow Quot itself As a place for relaxation. In assisting nature by piping water to the plateau Bakersfield people will take advantage of a latent recreation resource Long it to a vat top 15 def bake Rafoeld morning Echo. July 27 the Quot greater movie season Quot opens throughout the West this week and the California theatre is going to present a series of the most marvelous films Ever shown on the Silver d. Stetson assistant manager of West coast theatres inc needed. Deer and a lonely Lookout Bob Evans Are now the Only inhabitants of the Region. Picnickers who invade the almost Virgin privacy of the plateau declare it the most Beautiful within reasonable reach of local people. The Caliper of Coolidge two states in the Union Massachusetts and californian have real statutes protecting women and children in limited hours of labor. The Massachusetts Law was signed by Calvin Coolidge As governor Over the protests of the powerful manufacturers. In his address before the bar association in san Francisco in 1922 Coolidge declared he would rather be known As the governor who signed the 48-hour Bill than As the governor during the Boston police strike. By that statement Calvin Coolidge showed the real Caliper of the Man who is asking the people of the United states to re elect him to the highest office in the state. Water storage District tax payers meet obligation before delinquency j water District taxpayers lined up in i a Rush yesterday to pay assessments j due the Kern River water storage j District to treasurer Jerry Shields be-1 fore becoming delinquent. Shields j stated that he will have hundreds of letters to open from taxpayers sending remittances by mail. This will keep him Busy checking up the receipts All Day monday. He will also receive payments at the office on monday As an accommodation to payers who have been delayed. The treasurer stated last evening that he would be unable to Complete his tabulation so As to give data As to delinquencies until monday. All through the Day yesterday a steady Stream of taxpayers up keeping treasurer Shields and his assistants Busy. As High As 15 and 20 persons were in line at a time. The line extended out into the corridors of the courthouse nearly All Forenoon. The would be presidents Davis Lafollette and the lesser Fry Are making a great Deal of noise these Days and Are being very frequently Quot mentioned in but the quiet efficient Man in the White House is going about the nation s business saying Little but doing a very great Deal. Or. Frank Crane s daily editorial significance of backs by or. Frank Crane thelk has Lieen entirely too much attention paid to Hie face. After All the face is a Small portion of the human Charm. And there is no reason Why one who Lappens to be detective in this one Little respect and abound in other beauties such for instance As Trilby feet or a Katisha shoulder Blade should be out of the running. And so to the truth As Talleyrand or somebody else said thai words were used to conceal thoughts we might with equal Justice add that faces Are Iraq Vuht in hypocrisy. Most of us Linic entire control of our facial features. We can smile when we wish to snarl. We can look modestly Down when we Are full of Pride and women have been known to weep for a purpose. But you cannot do that sort of thing with your Back. Backs is backs. The character of people is quite often determined by their resemblance to lower animals. And herein it is our Hacks that betray us. This truth has even entered into our language. We speak of a gentleman having his Back up by which we mean he resembles an angry cat. Independence courage and All such Militancy is much better indicated by stiffening one s Back than by any sort of motion than can be made with the Mouth or the nose. And the most eloquent gesture of humility is the bending of the Back. When we wish to do homage to the Duchess we curve our spines and kiss her linger tips. When we approach his majesty we Bend our backs. If humility is the crowning virtue of the Wise then surely the Back which Best expresses this is a most glorious instrument. It is the Back that is really the class Symbol. For is it not the Burden bearer of the world alias the proletariat whose backs Are Bent by the fat and pampered bourgeoi8e who sit upon them and. Then there is another thing. Have you not often had a Back View of a woman walking along the Street and almost fallen in love with her Only to have your dream shattered when she turned around and we ask is this fair to the woman Texas election worker is killed it was a Happy thought that sent five Hundred american lawyers now in England to visit Sulgrave Manor the ancestral Home of the Washington. Such pilgrimages do much to tighten the ties that bind the two great branches of the English speaking race.ripphngrhiiiitqs1 Irwi Stetha copyright 1924 George Matthew Adams spoiling a kindness i called on Charles h.
