STRONG ARMY. PM
Outlook for Peace Is
EUROPE NOW MENACED
National Civic Federation Itec-
ommends Co-operation With
Ijeague of Xations.
-NEW YORK, Nov. 11. Mainte
nance of a strong army and navy is
the only means of assuring the
safety of the United States under
present troubled world conditions,
was urged in resolutions adopted
today at the closing session of the
National Civic federation confer
ence of international affairs.
" "The outlook after four years of
peace is dark Indeed," said a dec
laration drawn up as preamble to
the various resolutions adopted.
""With one accord we turn our at
tention to the problem of how
civilization can be saved from im
"The fourth anniversary of the
armistice is a significant time for
the holding of a conference to con
sider the question of America's in
ternational relations and America's
military policy. America took a
leading part in the great struggle
and must bear her share of the re
sponsibility for the settlement that
Dissension Menaces Europe.
' "That settlement has not brought
peace and the states of Europe and
the near east, so far from compos
ing their difficulties and recon
structing their community life, are
trembling on the edge of the abyss,
threatened with bankruptcy, mu
tually suspicious and torn by enmi
ties and dissensions.
. "The conference recognizes that
the United States must play the part
in the world to which eminence its
cultural, political and material de
velopments entitle it."
- The resolution dealing with the
army commended the present na
tional' defense act, but urged that
the standing army be increased to
150,000 enlisted men and 13,000 offi-.
cers as advocated by Secretary of
-The navy, said another resolution,
sliould be maintained in every way
on a basis of equality with that of
Great Britain and five-thirds the
strength of that of Japan.
'The conference also advocated
Adoption of a consistent American
policy in international relations,
divorced from partisan politics and
bringing to bear upon the other na
tion's the influence of agreement for
justice and peace.
Work With League -Urged.
CWhile warning against attempts
to; secure world peace by artificial
organization, "susceptible to polit
ical intrigue," th'e conference rec
ommended: "Co-operation with the
league of nations 'in all lines of
humanitarian endeavor.' "
, "The conference," it was declared,
"holds the Monroe doctrine to be an
outstanding feature of sagacious
American policy and believes that
this country should accept and ful
fill the obligations and responsibili
ties as well as the rights involved
It was recommended that the
president of the National Civic fed
eration appoint a committee of 100
or more men and women from the
delegates "to secure, organize and
furnish to the membership of these
various bodies accurate and unbiased
information on important interna
tional relations and movements,
such information to serve 'as au
thentic material for study groups
and aid in the dispensation of sane
and just American opinion on our
national duties and our personal re-
sponsiDinues toward foreign n
Samuel Gompers, president of the
American Federation of Labor, who
presided, declared that America's
entrance into the league of nations
would have prevented Turkey front
trying to assume the role she has
taken in European affairs.
: Bishop James J. Cannon Jr. of the
Methodist Episcopal church of Nash
. vllle. Tenn., delivered a militant ad
dress in which he declared that the
duty of the United States was" to
oppose with armed force the Turk

nity. After the marriage the young

enough for Mr. McDonald to com
plete a school year at isew xorK
I university, after which they will
live in Portland, where Mr. McDon

the University of Oregon school of
Miss Saunders and Mr. McDonald
met about two years ago at Elk
Lake. Or., whither she had been sent
by The Oregonian -to "cover" the
meeting of the Oregon Sportsmen's
league, and to which Carl Shoe
maker, fish and game commissioner,
had summoned Mr. McDonald, who
at the time was district warden for
central Oregon. Being the only girl
at the gathering, Miss Saunders was
showered "with courtesies and fa
vors, and from the large number of
men there her fancy fell upon the
district warden, who is a typical
man of the west. Before she re
turned to Portland and on the eve
of departing for South America, she
had plighted faith with him.
Miss Saunders left Portland in
1920and for more than a year did
newspaper work in South America,
where her experiences as night edi
tor for the United Press for South
America at Rio de Janeiro brought
her into many novel situations. She
is recognized as the pioneer of
women newspaper writers from the
United States to that field, and
many ex-residents of South America
now seek her out in New York. Six
months ago she was brought to the
New York office of the United Press
and recently resigned to join the

Acceptance of House Figures for
fl 1923 Expected.
-WASHINGTON, D. C, Nov. 11.
A prediction that the 1923 navy
budget will provide for an enlisted
personnel of 86.000, the total fixed
by the present law, was made today
by Chairman Kelley of the house
aub-committee which has the appro
priation under consideration. Navy
department officials are understood
to have favored a larger figure.
.'"We made a thorough examina
tion a year ago as to the number of
men we believed necessary to oper-
- ate the navy up to the arms con
ference ratio, and went into it thor
oughly," Bald Mr. Kelley. "But the
house took a different view and put
tnrough an enlisted strength of
86,00 as suggested by President
:- Without speaking for the com
mittee. I believe that since the ques
tion was settled so recently and
after such thorough consideration
by the house, the judgment of the
house ought to be accepted as final.
Certainly nothing has developed, ii
my opinion, to make a change in th
naval strength necessary."
LONDON, Nov. 11. "Cissie" Lof
tus, for more than 20 years a well
known actress on the stages of both
Great Britain and the United States,
was arraigned Friday in police court
and charged with being an unau
thorized person in possession of
morphine and atrophine. She ap
peared to be ill. Through her counsel
she pleaded not guilty.
The magistrate admitted the ac
tress to ball and' adjourned the case
for a week.
NEW YORK, Nov. 11. London dis

Cecile (Cissie) Loftus for the alleged
illegal possession of drugs brought
to the United States the first news

Born in England, she showed at
an early age an aptitude at mimicry.
London audiences hailed her as s
child prod'igy for her Imitations of
Sarah Bernhardt and other celebri

Finally she left vaudeville for

CHICAGO, Nov. 11. Dr. A. H. Wa
terman, second husband of "Cissie"
Loftus, said today he hadno in
formation regarding her arrest in
London or her recent movements.
Dr. Waterman and Miss Loftu
were divorced about ten years ago.
The marriage of Dr. Waterman
and Miss Loftus was the result of a
childhood romance of the days when
both were beginners on the stage.
Dr. Waterman deserted the foot
lights in 1902 to study medicine here.
The wedding followed a three
minute courtship, Dr. Waterman giv
ing "Cissie" that time to say "yea"
to his telephoned proposal.
