Russian Envoy at Genoa Declared to Have Surpassed Other Dele
gates in Generosity to Servant. '
Major Baldip.ger,' Harding's Newsboy in Old Days, Is Taken Back
to Marion by President Harding During Visit.
(Copyright, 1922, by The Oregonian.)
BY R. T. S.
rASHIXGTON, D. C, July 8.
(Special.) By far the best
story that has emanated
from any of the numerous European
conferences of the last few years
has just come to town. In more than
one respect it is what the English
would call a priceless story. The
tale is going the rounds of the con
tinent and is vouched for by a trav
eler just returned.
It seems it was the last day at
Genoa and the leaders of the British,
French, Austrian and Russian dele
gations were having supper to
gether. When the. head waiter
brought the bills, Mr. Lloyd George
took a sovereign out of his waist
coat pocket and put it on the table.
The waiter bowed respectfully.
M. Barthou followed with a 50
franc note. The waiter bowed, but
not quite so respectfully.
Then Schober, the Austrian, took
out of his pocketbook a strange
document covered with signatures
and stamps.
"Is that a check?" asked the
waiter with some hauteur.
"No," replied Herr Schober, "it is
a bill of lading. A wagonload of
kroffen is at the station for you."
The waiter, in the regular order,
turned to Tchitcherin, the soviet
leader, who nonchalantly threw a
little parcel on the table. It gave a
metallic chink. "Some church jew
els, I suppose," murmured the waiter.
"Not exactly," said Tchitcherin,
"just a stereotype plate for 1000
ruble notes. Print as many as you
And with a sublime sweep of the
hand the bolshevist left the table.
President Harding's statement in
his speech at Marion that the fed
eral prohibition law must be en
forced no matter what the cost was
received in Washington with a great
deal of satisfaction by government
officials, especially those connected
with the law-enforcement branch.
It is realized that public sentiment
mirst assist if prohibition is really
to become effective, and there is no
surer method of arousing public
sentiment than through utterances
of the chief executive.
It is of no avail at this time to
discuss the wisdom or lack of wis
dom of the prohibition amendment
and the Volstead act. The fact re
mains that they are the law of the
land and when these laws are per
mitted to fall into disrespect all
laws go by the board.
This is particularly true of a fed
eral law.
Time was in this country when
the federal law and federal officers
were feared even as the anvenging
angel is feared. It was all very
well to take certain liberties with
city or state laws, but tradition
had it that once the federal author
ities got on your trail there was
nothing to it but surrender.
It was felt thre was some par
ticularly mysterious force about the
federal machinery that would reach
out and get you, no matter how
many years were required in the
process of getting. The federal
court and the federal grand jury
were regarded with respect border
ing on awe by even the most hard-
ened criminal.
Inability of the federal govern
ment to enforce the prohibition -law
in all its phases has broken down a
great, deal of the former respect for
federal law. All government offi
cials, all judges have felt it. Presi
dent Harding agrees that the gov
ernment cannot fail. It is quite
true that the task of enforcing a
law which makes a criminal of a
man who merely continues to fol
low the habits of a lifetime, a law
Each Change of Season and Each Neft Fad Brings in Its Wake
Great Variety of "Don'ts."
BERLIN, July 8. (By the Asso
ciated Press.) Berliners are
finding the familiar "verboten"
of war and pre-war days more irk
some and omnipotent than ever un
der the republican regime.
When Richard Enright, New York
city police commissioner, who is
here to study police methods and
regulations, together with the Ber
lillon system, called on the authori
ties he was shown the city's awe
inspiring list of "dont's" ranging in
categorical shades of law breaking
all the way from keeping off the
grass to assassination.
Each change of season, each new
fad, each successive rise in prices,
appears to bring in its wake a fresh
variety of offenders for addition to
the metropolitan police blotter.
The latest monthly statistics
enow that an average of more than
327 persons were arrested daily.
The last month saw 234 arrests for
kissing in parks and similar mis
demeajiors tending to lower the
standard of public morals.
Despite the high prices of alco
holic liquors there were 847 arrests
for drunkenness and there were 155
"dead beats" arrested for trying to
eneak out of bars without paying.
Dogs are being increasingly taxed
and this resulted in the throwing
of 162 ownerless dogs on the streets
during the month, while 655 fell
into the hands of the law for going
out minus their muzzles.
In all, the monthly figures show
Ministers of British Cabinet and German Leaders Being- Carefully
Guarded Against Frantic Youth of Old World.
(Copyright, 92, by The Oregonian.)
LONDON, July S. (Special cable.)
The cult of violence, the use
of pistol and bomb for pur-1
jvoses of political debate, continues
to be held in high regard by the
youth of the old world, if it is not,
indeed, gaining in favor. All the
ministers of the British cabinet, and
those nrembers of parliament who
have taken prominent parts in the
Irish controversy are now being
carefully guarded lest some frantic
young man empty his automatic into
one of them by way of an additional
"gesture" for the cause. Germany's
leaders, who had grown a little
careless, are now, after the Rath
enau and Maximilian Harden inci
dents, more closely protected than
ever before. It's a dull day in Italy,
when the wholesale grocer's son
which says that an act may be en-J
tirely legal one day and wholly
criminal the next, is the most dif
ficult ever" faced by any govern
ment a task which in the last an
alysis, reauires nrvina into nearlv
every man's home. But the task is
there. Congress placed it on the
federal government and .it is. now
up to congress to provide the gov
ernment with the necessary means
of enforcing the law.
Someone has estimated that in
order to enforce the Volstead law to
the last letter would require an
army of 300,000 prohibition agents at
an annual cost of $1,000,000,000. That
may or may not be true, but if it is
true it is up to congress to provide
the funds. A federal law should
not be allowed to become a thing of
contempt. The. prohibition officials
feel they are making steady head
way against the professional liquor
traffickers with the means at their
command, but private violations of
the law are going on apace.
Mrs. O. H. P. Belmont has been
reported as having stipulated when
she donated the money for the new
headquarters of the national wom
en's party up near the capitol,
known as the "Watch Tower on the
Hill," that-no man should be em
ployed about the place "except in a
menial capacity."
Ouch! That is getting back at the
sterner sex with a vengeance. But
the question now has arisen as to
what did the woman mean, menial?
The big dictionaries say that me
nial means servile, low, mean, sor
did, degrading, abject, cringing,
fawning, obsequious and sycophan
tic. Possibly there are some other
definitions, but these seem quite
enough. Then there is the noun
menial, meaning "one employed in
low or servile offices."
Now, then, suppose the bathroom
spring a leak in the "Watch Tower
on the Hill," must those in charge
of the headquarters wait until they
can find a woman plumber, or must
they search until they can find a
plumber willing to sign an affidavit
that a plumber is menial?
Suppose the roof needs repairing,
where, oh, where can you find in
all Washington a woman roofer?
Likewise where can you find a me
nial roofer? Anyway, when one at
tains the roof he cannot be said to
be occupying a "low office."
The only solution is that perhaps
she regards all men as menials and
maybe she's right. Who knows?
At the British embassy here they
are wondering Just what sort of
hash the average Englishman is
going to make of the new title of
Lord French, at one time commander-in-chief
of the British expedi
tionary forces in France. ' Lord
French has become the Earl of
Ypres one of the few Englishmen
to -choose a foreign geographical
location for his earldom. Lord
Beatty became Earl Beatty of the
North sea and Drooksby, because of
his participation in the famous fight
against the German high seas fleet.
Lord French was in command when,
the tfntlsh. made their gallant stand
at Ypres, a salient in the line which
was never given up. To hold this
bit of Belgium became a sentiment,
symbolic with the British and while
they lost heavily from the constant
fire of the Germans, who occupied
high ground on three sides of the
once beautiful little city, Ypres has
never surrendered.
But the pronunciation of Earl
French's title place is the rub. The
Belgian or French pronunciation is
"Eep'' or "Eep-er" or rather some
thing in between the two.
The British "Tommies" couldn't
stand for that sort of thing, how
ever, so they called it "Wipers," and
to a large share of the English pop
ulation "Wipers" it will always be

of the extreme right and the ex

and to that confession of faith, this
explanatory footnote: -- .
A war is an armed struggle- be
tween nations, between a nation and
a group of individuals, between
groups within a nation, and even
between an individual and any of
the others a comprehensive defini
tion. It is a curious fact- that the
pioneer evangelists of the cult of
the deed, those who made the
phrases now so popular in western
Europe, are on trial for their lives
in Moscow. The social revolution
aries made "war", on the czar by
killing individual members of his
government; when the bolsheviks
set up their dictatorship the S. R.'s
naturally continued their tactics,
killing Volodarskyi planning but
failing to blow up Trotzky and put
ting two poisoned bullets into , Le
nine, before their organization was
definitely smashed and their lead
ers jailed.
War Develops Blood Thtrt.
If the S. R.'s did much to popu
larize the terminology of the popu
lar and exciting game of political
murder, the war developed a gen
eration of young men whose most
impressionable years were largely
spent in listening to enthusiastic
descriptions of killing, or actually
engaging in it. A great, proportion
of the hearty young killers of Ire
land, Germany and Italy and of
other countries, no doubt, are those
who after years of anticipation
grew up to find no enemy on whom
to use their automatics.
In the "defense of nationalism, in
ternationalism, militarism, or pa
cifism," they are finding opportun
ity for self-expression. ; '

But the raking out of W. L. Stev

story. Important published letters
and the manuscript of his unpub
lished play "Monmouth" are to be

is evidently a very bad one. He

Weather, brides and air

Cloudbursts, coming so - thick and

In addition to demonstrating at
Mitchell Field how easy it is to
bomb a "pill box" from an altitude
of 2500 feet, aviators also intro
duced the publie to the delights of
bubble chasing. Chasing bubbles is
a combination of polo and trap-shooting-
done in the air and its
chief idea is to burst a small hydro
gen balloon which sails along ahead
of your plane. This is a delightful
sport, but not for the aeronaut.
One set of aviators is inclined to
think, the proposed 100-passenger
. hydroplane that can fly around the
world is a species of bubble chaser.

while the world-encircling hydro

With the summer season on the
burglars- union is having it a little
easier. For example, a leisurely co
terie of burglars entered the home
of James Morice. president of the
home-manufacturing - plant bearing
his name, just off Fifth avenue, one
afternoon this week. The Morice
family was away at their summer
home, so the burglars worked that
evening until they were tired, slept
in the Morice house and completed
their task next morning, driving off
with a wagon load of loot at noon.
To be sure, although the robbery
was reported, to the police, it was
not reported to the Morices until a
newspaper man called them up some
days later, but a policeman can't be
everywhere at once.
Meanwhile, Greenwich village is
not without its worries. "Lady" is
lost. She's a little white dog, a na

of the village for 13 years. Not so
much as a beauty-contest entrant.
Lady, nevertheless, is fair in the
eyes of her owner, who -has set the
whole village searching for a white
dog with freckles on its back. Lady
is a poodle, and . poodles are - no

dog with the freckled back is re

ASHINGTON, D. C, July 8.
(Special.) Official Washing
ton is back in- town after its
Fourth of July celebration. The re
turned sojourners include the -president
and Mrs. Harding, who, when
they went to Marion, took with them
an old Marionite in the person of
one of t)ie president's military aides,
Major Ora M. Baldinger. The major
was of that group of "newsies"
whom Mrs. Harding trained with
such special care, and many of whom
proved a tower of strength to the
Marion Star in its 'formative days.
Mrs. Harding, as you probably know,
was circulation manager of her nus
band's paper and some of the means
Bhe employed to obtain efficiency
from her carriers were strenuous

days as much in newspaper offices
as in the school room.
As a lad of 10 the soldierly aide
was promoted : tc the inside office
and served the editor of the Marion
Star as confidential messenger and
other- capacities. - When Mr.
Harding entered politics he took
young Baldinger to Columbus and
later he was appointed a page in
the Ohio senate.' From this posi
tion he took a course at the V. M. I.
and eventually entered the army and

OME, June 18. The daily life
of Pope Plus XI at the Vatican

labors from 15 to 16 hours a day,
sleeps from six tot sexen, and plays
two hours. His meals are taken
while he examines his mail or gives

much attention during the Genoa
conference were the personal work
of the holy father.
He reads and delves into the rich
collection of Vatican books assidu

in seeking just the thought he
wants that . some of the prelates
have been compelled to use a "gen

the night has crept far on. to seek
repose. His energy astonishes the
papal household.
. Health Left to God.
Recently, when it was suggested
to him that he was working far too
hard, Pius XI replied:
"You know that when one is made
pope, life Is finished. All then is in
the hands of God. I will do nothing
to preserve my life one day more,
but I will work until God says, 'It is
enough.' "
The pope rises at 6:30 o'clock
every morning and says mass in his
private chapel before breakfast,
which is at 8 o'clock. This meal con

butter. The mail is brought in
while he eats, and the pontiff di
vides it among his seven secretaries
for attention and answers.
At 9 o'clock, Cardinal Gasparri,
secretary of state, is received in the

ave ever had such a spon

British as Chief Justice Taft has just
received. The genial ex-president of
the United States captivated all
hearts during his three weeks' stay
here by his joviality, his kindliness
and his unaffected manner." The
Britons, who are accustomed to re
gard their own public men in high
places with something akin to awe,
were frankly surprised to find the
ex-head of 100,000,000 people so
modest, democratic and approach
able, and Mrs. Taft came in for a
large share of their admiration The
chief justice surpassed his own
White House record in speechmak

with his American honors, gave him
them to look after their political
fences, many of which are very
shaky indeed and apt to tumble
down at the next election.
The'speaker of the house and Mrs.
Frederick Gillett have gone to York
Harbor, Maine. Mrs. Gillett, who is
one of the best dressed women in
town, wore a striking gown of gray
and black georgette with a largo
all-over scroll design. This is made
in a straight line with cleverly ap
plied' tunic pieces at one side and
girdled with a narrow string belt
tied in a neat little bow at the back.
The sleeves are elbow length with
hanging square pieces falling away
from the arms and wrists. With this
costume Mrs. Gillett wears a laven
der hat trimmed with lavender and
gray feathers

daughter, who accompanied them to
York Harbor wore at a party lust
before their departure a pretty gown
of peach brown taffeta, made with
a- bodice and wide skirt. The skirt
Is very long and, combined with the
drooping shoulder lines, is very
quaint and becoming. At a tea re
cently Miss Hoar wore a gown of
rose canton crepe made on straight
lines with a wide girdle draped
about the hips and looped on one
side of the front. With this she.
generally wears a large hat of pin'

important society people have gone

have departed, but such is not the
case. There are really lots of peo

social leaders, for example, is here

gave dinners twice this week. In

sort; more or less informal prac

Milan style. Then follows cutlets,
or perhaps chicken. But the pope

Old rowing men are mourning over
the decline of the Henley regatta
week as a social event. In pre-war
days it rivaled the Ascot races. The
king and queen made their appear
ance In state on the course in the
royal barge, and residents of the lit
tle riverside town rented their
houses for 50 pounds and the hotels
were all sold out months in advance.
Americans arriving late this year
had no trouble in finding rooms at
any time at reasonable rates.
Henley suffers from competition
with other sports. Ascot week, the
international horse show, polo tour
nament with the Argentine stars In
action, and the tennis on the new
Wimbledon courts, all preceded It
this year, and Suzanne Lenglen in
the championship tennis matches
this week was a strong counter at
traction.' Consequently the Henley
attendance was narrowed down to
rowing enthusiasts.
The event also was marked by
rain. For the rowing men them
selves, however, the Henley regatta
becomes more interesting, as, like
polo and tennis, it assumes yearly
more of an international character.
