COL. HOUSE A MENACE. -
That' there are grave lnc nslsten
io in cpcaiHnnt Wilson's procedure,
and In fact danger threatens United
States Interests through Irresponsible
' representatives to the worm council
Is apparent, and of one glaring mis
take the Oregonlaa of Monday has
this to say: i.
In view of the appointment of
Colonel B. M. House as one of the
American delegates to the peace con
ference, the fact Is of deep interest
that he originated and proposed to
Germany In 1916 a novel idu'ctrine of
fraorifim of sens, adontlon of which by
the United States and the allies
would have lifted the Diocnoae, ieii
Germany free to import munitions
and food without Hindrance ana to
eend splos and destructive agents
' throughout the world. It would
Kiloubtless have destroyed the naval
supremacy of the allies and would
have rendered their great fleets of no
value In overcoming the enemy of
democracy and civilization.
This Is revealed In "The Real Colo
nel House," by Arthur D. Howden
Smith, who' in a note announces a
. long acquaintance and friendship
with the Colonel and who, says of
hints-. i -.. ,'. .:- ' f .... . ,
He holds a power never wielded
. before -in this country l)y any man
out of office, a power greater than
that of any political boss or Cabinet
. member. He occupies a place in con
nection with the Administration
rwhlch is anamalous, 'because no such
place ever existed before Woodvow
Wilson became President or the Unit
ed States. . .i ; There is ample excuse
for assigning him credit as chief ad
viser In the formulation of, all the
President's Important decisions. ' i
In, this capaolty-."a super-Ambassador"
Mr. Smith calls him, though
ho had received no lawful appoint
ment and hnd not, boon confirmed by
the Senate he paid a visit to Berlin
In) IDI'6 and made a "freedom of the
seas" .proposition, of which Mr, Smith
eays:
No previous-mention of it has been
found. It met with prompt response.
Colonel House meant . .-. literal, un
limited freedom of the bods, which
would Imply the safoty of merchant
men in the enemy ports on- the de
claration of war;- the safety not only
of food cargoes, but cargoes of actual
contraband; the uninterrupted-, pro
gress of the world's oooan-toorne oom
niorco In the mldBt of the most wide
ly dispersed' war.
' - A vista opened before the eyes of
the leaden) nt Berlin. , . Perhaps they
thought only of the nullification Of
the (preponderating naval power of
Great Britain and the abolition of the
hlookade which was cutting off Ger
many from her sources of raw ma
terial. ; .- 'The Immediate effect of his
suggestion of the doctrine nt Berlin
was to obtain the prompt and enthu
siatlc assent of Germany.
Here, Indeed, was a friend In need.
Thoro was no chance of winning ac
ceptance of the Dernburg doctrine,
which would have forbidden trans
port, of troops and munitions over
seas, Dut mere was the unoniciai
. agent of the most powerful neutral
offering support of a dootrine which
wouM throw open to Germany tho
resources of the neutral world. If
the allies rejected the new doctrine
and continued the blockade, justifi
cation would exist for German law
lesBnoss'at sea, and the Unttod Slates
would become a virtual ally of Ger
many. The Is grave dnngor to the safoty
of the United States In the prosenco :
as this Nation's representative at the
.peace conference of a man who en
tertains such opinions, and In his
: position as the intlmato counselor of
the President. Notwithstanding the
President's denunciation of secret dl-

ENIEYJ.U
With the changing program for the
United States army overseas and the
return of thousands of troops to this
country, the Imperative need for Y.
M. C. A. workers In Prance has been
diminished to such an extent that
scores of men who have had their ap
plications favorably considered are
now recoiving word, that their serv
ices will not bo required. All recruit
ing by the National War Work Coun
cil of the Y. M. C..A. has Deen aban
doned with the exception of men of
distinctive educational organization
ability, such as heads of colleges and
universities or principals of high
schools. A very limited number of
outstanding religious leaders with
exceptional organizing ability will be
sent across while a small number of
business men who have had experi
ence in Y. M. C, A. work and possess
ing ability to organize effectively
may poslbly be needed. The entire
program of the Y. M. C. A. overseas
has 'been readjusted to meet the
change in military conditions and 'it
Is expected that a large number of
Y. M. C. A. secretaries overseas will
he returnedl on the transports with
the home bound troops.
WITH SAGE TEA
Mixed with Sulphur
, Darkens bo Naturally
Nobody can Tell.
It
i
Tho old-tlma mixture of Sage Tea and
Sulphur for darkening gray streaked
and filled lialr is grandmother's recipe,
and folks are again using tt to keep their
bair a good, even color, which is quite
enBlblc, as we are. living in an age when
a youthful appearance fa of the greatest
advantage. '
Nowadays, though, we don't have the
troublesome task of iratherinir the satro
,and tho mussv mixing at homo. All
drug stores sell the roady-touse product,
improved by the addition of otlior ingred
ientB, called "Wycth'B Sage and Sulphur
Compound" for about GO oonta a bottle.
It 1b very popular becaxise nobody can
discover it has been applied. Simply
molitcn your eomb or a soft brush with
it and draw tliis through your hair, tak
ing one small strand at a llmoj by morn
ing the gray hair disappears, but what
delights tho ladies with Wyoth's Sage
and Sulphur Compound, is that, besides
beautifully darkening the hair after a
few applications, It also produces that
bo ft lustro and appearance of abundance
which Is bo attractive. This roady-to-use
J 'reparation is a delightful toilet requisite
or those who desire a more youthful ap
pearance. It 1b not intended for the cure,
mitigation or proven tlon of disease, g)
It Is a natural feeling
for a man to feel
dreasod up, when he
has a NEW NKCKTIE.
The now Jananose silks
are really wondorful.
