Mcdonnell of slut Nokia appointed state prohibition director for Pei Mulvania. His enemies say his record As a wet is not in Harmony Wlsh his new dry Job. It re which time works out its problems despite the plan Ting of statesmen and the will of Strong Peoples it tells us quietly that we May barricade our selves behind Sandy Hook and lock the Golden Gate but that americans cannot guarantee them selves immunity from consequences flowing out of the struggle Between serbs and turks on the Field of the blackbirds centuries before Persh ing set sail for France. The life ambition of Illiam Howard Taft was realized last week when the Senate confirmed his appointment by president Harding As chief Justice of the United states supreme court. Or. Taft who is 64 years of age and in robust health is the first Man in history to be chosen for the highest office in both the executive and judicial branches of the government. During the War he was one of the few republicans who refused to enter into the movement to hamper the president and his Square stand for patriotism and for the league of nations was a consistent one which had a steadying influence on the nation during the War although he sup ported his party ticket in the late presidential election. Singularly enough the fight for his confirmation in the Senate against Republican opposition was led by the democrats and on one Democrat Watson of Georgia voted against him. Or. Taft possesses the perfect judicial Tei Perment and he is splendidly qualified to Render the country he so devoutly loves Grea service in the position of chief Justice.

Borah plan for a reduction of armament demanded a big army and Navy Gen rally endorsed everything Republican has fac d squarely about and is now demanding that extravagant appropriations be Cut. In its Issue of Une 20 it says the new York Herald would like to see the combined billion Dollar appropriations for army and Navy Cut in half. In the present world out ook we should be willing that the government Gamble to this extent and we Are satisfied that we would not be taking Long chances at that. Government expenditures Are intolerable and some big dents have got to be made in them. The Only solution is the we Don t think any of you would like to see us so heavily loaded with credit accounts that we would not be Able to meet our obligations but that is just what we Are coming to under our present system of credit. It May seem a Small matter that any one per son owes but in the aggregate it amounts to a sum that would Surprise you.
