Editor Mt. Scott Herald:
I saw a statement in the press
of a man who claims that when he
votes next Tuesday he has voted
for 14 presidents. Now 1 will go
him two better. When I vote Tues­
day it will make me 16 presidents.
I voted for Preaident Lincoln in
1860 the first time he ran for
f»resident. I have voted the repub-
iean ticket ever since and vot«l
it straight.
I claim the longevity
of my life is largely prolonged by
being a republican and would ad­
vise all democrats to come into
the republican ranks. They will live
longer and die happier.
While I have pawed my 81st
milestone I. am juat a kid yet. I

Room for Much Better Understanding
Between Americans and British.
By ROBERT A. GARDNER. Chicago. Amateur Golfer.
The uppermost subject in my mind since my
return is the need of a much better understanding
hetween the majority of the people in the two coun­
tries. No, I won’t say that. Rather I will say a bet
ter understanding in each country of the other coun­
try. The British and Americans must stand close t<>
one another and 1 firmly believe that they will. I know
that there is a certain class over there that is anti-
AtneYican, just as we have an anti-British class over
here. But from what 1 saw over there that class
is not composed of the thinking ]>eople in any sense of
the word, uor do 1 think thiil they are in control. From the very moment
that we set foot on their soil they did everything in their power to make
us feel that we were the guests of the nation. Everywhere we went we
were entertained and made to feel at home—at M airfield, St Andrews
and Loudon.
The thing that made the strongest impression on me was their
sportsmanship. It is apparent in their every act. Not only on the field
of play but in their home life, and they even carry it to their business.
The spirit of merciless competition that is everywhere on this side of the
Atlantic is totally lacking over there. No matter what it cost.« them they
always play fair. Nut just for the sake of playing fair, but because
it never seems to occur to them to act otherwise.
All the way through I met with the utmost cordiality and sporta-
manaliip. And it occurred to me that this summers invasion of our
different athletes was doing a whole lot to clear up misconceptions between
the two nations. They have created a country-wide interest in both the
games and the Americans. 1 want to say again that I grew to have a
very sincere feeling for the Englishman as I «aw him in his own country.
If I may be permitted, I will fall back on a bit of American slang, and
say that I surely found them “regular guys.”

September proved to be a ban­
ner month for the birth of girl ba­
bies in Portland, for in this month
the birta of girls exceeded that of
boys for the first time during any
month in the year. A total of 221
girls were delivered by King Stork
in September and 205 boys, accord­
ing to the records of Ma Nyus-
baum, registrar of births of
city health bureau.
In April, 1920, an equal number
of girls and boys were bom in Port­
land, 227 of each sex, but in every
other month of the year the birth
of boys has been greater than that
of girls.
