the reporters and finally springs her

grace a week-end house party.
It Is a clever idea and the wife Is re
warded best when it turns out that not
only her husband, but her young broth
er and her brother-in-law and her for
mer suitor are all old flames of the
sympathetic widow.
The husband is taught his lesson rap-

worth of his wife and the "sauce for

tending to revive and encourage an af
fection from her old swain.
The reformation is brought about
naturally and so sincerely that It takes
on an added value in the wife's eyes.
It is a big role, that of the all-wise,
all-seeing, forgiving and forgetting

That' China faces tho disruption of
her nationality, the 'almost certain ag
gresslons of foreign powers, as the re
suit of the European war. Is the op In
ion of Dr. Kenneth Scott Latourette, of
Reed College, as expressed In a lecture
at the Church of Our Father last night
on "China and the Present World
Many of the provinces of China may
face similar fates to those of Poland
and Finland, he said. If the powers
have their way at the conclusion of
the war. China's hope may lay In the
possible crippling of the nations in
volved beyond desire for aggression,
he declared.
In opening his talk, the speaker first
sketched the wonderful history of
China and the causes which led up to
the recent revolution. He pointed out
the marvelous culture that gave China
high rank in literary composition, in
vention, architecture, painting, eta.
and to its former contempt of the out
side world that resulted In a lack of
stimulus to new Ideas and new ideals
of civilization. It is only within the
last few years that China has realized
the need of a strong centralized gov
ernment to prevent foreign powers
from partitioning her, he said, and It
Is this which has led to tho rapid
events of the past few years. China
faces a tremendous task and the out
look Is black for her. said the speaker.
China is in danger of failure in de
velopment through lack ' of money. If
the money markets of the world are
tied up by the war, was a point em
phasized by Dr. Latourette, who pic
tured disastrous counter revolutions,
if power cannot be maintained by the
party now In the seat of government.
Another thing, he said was that in the
event of a German triumph, the cause
of civilization would be set back 15
years In China for the reason that
English Is the commercial language
taught and. spoken there now.
Most Important of all. the speaker
said, that even if Japan gave up Klau
Chau. as she has declared she would.
she would demand other compensation
in- the way of commercial grants, and
If Germany won out, this Nation would
demand compensation for the viola
tion of neutrality In China by the Jap
anese. To preserve the balance of
power In China- other nations would
demand portions of territory and China
would soon be without hope of a cen
tralized national government.
