THE FEARFUL COST OF ALOOFNESS
HE question of gradual disarmament by the nations of the
world has been pigeon-holed at the meeting of the
League of Nations council. France and Japan have pri-
j vately refused to consider reductions in their armies and
uayies until the L'nited State3 agrees to similiar reductions.
Their attitude is the most natural thing in the world. No
cation is going to disarm Hnless others also disarm. There must
le unity of action and, as long as .this-country remains aloof
sach unity of action is impossible. . ."
And so" we go on pouring out our money on the agencies of
deetruction. Last year we paid over $1,000,000,000 for "array
find navy expenses and the bill this year is $8o,490,806. Be
f ause of war and the fear of war, our government is now spend
ing $92.23 out of every $100 raised for all purposes.
For the fiscal year ending June 30, the United States spent
for civil administration only $3.00 per capita and this included
the cost of executive, judicial and legislative activities, scientific,
educational, development and all public work. For the same
period our federal government spent $51.00 per capita for war
purposes. ' ' :
' Upon that basis the city of Pendleton alone was called upon
to pay $374,595 last year on the government's war bill.' That
was a sum far in excess of all our local taxation combined. Every
tidustry, every business house and every man, woman and child,
rich or poor, had to bear a part.
It was not a direct tax, else the complaints would have snaK
en the foundations of our government. It was a concealed tax,
en added cost to the things we eat, the things we wear and the

one of us in dollars and cents.
Argument and pleas for disarmament, to the end that the
colossal waste of money on armies and navies might be stopped
stnd the money diverted to constructive use, have been made for
generations, but it was not until the European holocaust had j
Known the folly of war that any progress was made toward se-i
curing an international agreement for such a boon.
The League of Nations is the instrument through which the
nations of the world hope to accomplish this purpose, and the
country which through refusal to join the league or through
ther aloofness, blocks this great human reform is accepting a
fearful responsibility before God and man.
When the subject is viewed in this light, President-elect
Harding's conferences with the "best minds" on the league issue
assumes an importance far beyond the weight that could attach
to the discussion of any mere political topic. It wil lbe a waste
of time for any set of men or any political party to talk of econ
omy or tax reductions unless something is done to reduce the one
form of taxation that has grown so heavy it seriously imperils
s THE SUPER WHEAT SHIP
FROM the standpoint of future results the arrival at Asto
ria Friday of the mammoth British steamer Orca, is
viewed by many as an incident of more significance than
the recent interstate commerce decision giving Portland a 10
per cent differential on grain shipments from the territory south
of the Snake river. Portland was given a differential of a cent
a bushel and has acclaimed the decision as a great victory. The
decision did recognize, and justly so, the distinction between a
water grade and a mountain haul.
' ! However, the feeling prevails at Seattle and Astoria that the
referential will be offset by other features. For one thing they
have in mind the tendency to the use of larger ships, of such
draft that they cannot reach Portland, and the arrival of the
Orca lends color to the theory that the day of the big ocean
carrier is at hand.
The Orca will carry away 565,000 bushels of wheat for Max
Houser and when loaded will draw so much water that she cduld
r.ot enter or leave San Francisco bay with such a cargo. No such
shin could reach Portland with that cargo, i
It is powerful testimony as to the merits of the Astoria hr. ;X
, , . . i r j l j l T ' . . !
tor ana tne story nas an interest ior me larmer aisu. rveiy
nove that reduced ocean charges works to the advantage of
those who have wheat for export. There is a natural economy
in the use of large ships just as there is in the use of long trains
on favorable grades. The sooner we see large ships calling reg
ularly at the mouth of the Columbia the sooner will charter rates
be made lower.
' With a water grade haul from the interior to her docks and
with a harbor sufficiently deep for the largest ships afloot
Astoria has advantages that are certain to count heavily in tire
future. Time may soon see Astoria rivalling or surpassing both
Seattle and Portland in wheat exports. If so the farmer will
havC' no need for worry. Two markets are better than one and
three markets will be better than two.
Crime may not be more prevalent than in the past but it is
certainly more promiscuous.
If dissatisfied or dispirited, try doing something for others;
it? a sure cure.

There is a kind of color. The Tex

colors are very gay and ralnbowy.
Orange-yellow combinations verging
from lightest to medium shades are
very good. These hues are mancd

Five Colors Utile Now Hlnnsc
"Waist makers have selected from
this chart five colors which they ars
featuring in the new blouses they are
now making. The five are Zinc, a
medium gray; Honeydevv: Porcelain,
a blue Hko the china of that name;
Rattan, a yellow-tan; and Tomato.
The blouses which are being develop
in these shades continue 4he tunic or
peplum line, and most of . them are
slip-overs. Some houses are endea
voring to push back into popularity
tho flesh "and white georgette blouses.
These are made with all the trimming
concentrated upon the front, so that
the waist ntay serve as p. gult gilet.
In' fact, this fad of bedecking Milady's
straight-front is carried out In most
of the blouses. ' Braiding, embroder
ics, soutachey tinsel, headings, or ap
pliques trail their festiv art across
that 'sartorial expanse, comminly
known as the "gravy-dripping re
gion." Another whiff from the fashion
cauldron tells us that both afternoon
and street dresses will be mainly
made of blues, sand and gray, In con
trast to the blouse realm of more
garish hue. Dresses uilll be fuller,
even a wee bouffant although the
choker collar and basque remain
"among those present.". Slashed tun

Every man I talked with made the one
big point that the officials and the more
than 350 Reynolds foremen have an inborn
knowledge of the tobacco business; that
(putting it into a North Carolina expres

In a tobacco patch"; that they know to

to manufacture and sell it I " 1
