THERE IS A TRIED AND PROVEN FORMULA IF HE
PRESIDENT HARDING'S speech before the war college yes
terday gives the impression he is groping in the dark with
reference to the disarmament problem. He expressed the
!&pe that the burden of armament can be diminished, yet said
il is futile to think warfare may be stopped. Wars between na
tions may be stopped, if the nations wish, by the same formula
through which the individual, the family, the tribe and states
have been able to disarm in safety. These smaller units of so
ciety have found it possible to lay aside their war clubs because
tney have had the protecting hand of larger uriiti. Over 40 of
the leading countries of the earth have been willing to try the
KAme plan with reference to world affairs. The United States
i the one big nation standing out against the plan which is
Based on human experience and common' sense. If we persist in
this atitude the formula cannot be applied in thorough fashion
jind seemingly the xmly alternative will be for each country to
Ifeep its own fighting machine in shape.
; President Harding and his political colleagues have the so
lution in their own hands if they wish to use it. But if through
political prejudice they refuse to see the one highway by which
disarmament may be reached the- country will make no head
way under their leadership. If the president is going to insist
thi making disarmament impossible he may as 'well call off his

Springers and Hens
STORE CLOSED MONDAY
I T is a far cry from the battle of Syracuse, 213 B. C, to the
country arbufld Los Angeles in 1921, but the manuscript of a
Franciscan monk, dead these seven centuries, may form be
tween the two a connecting link in a power quest which would,
if successful, mean more to this section than to almost any por
tion of the globe, says the Los Angeles Times.
At the battle of Syracuse Archimedes is reported to have
burned the fleet of Marcellus to the water's edge by concen
trating the rays of the sun upon it from immense mirrors. In
the thirteenth century Roger Bacon tackled the problem of so
lar heat and carried it to sueh a point that scientists now taking
up the same idea with renewed interest, hope to find in the
translation of his recently unlocked manuscript valuable hints
on the final step to be taken. Heretofore the results of Bacon's
experiments, including boiling water and melting metals by the
heat of the sun, were known from outside sources. Now it is
Hoped to get at his carefully guarded secret as to the utilization
' ' Meanwhile, independently of Bacon, experiments in solar
power have been going on, especially since 1913, in France,
England, Canada and around Los Angeles. Within the last sev
en years important tests have been made at Pasadena, Needles,
Mesa, Ariz., on Mt. Wilson and at Meadi, Egypt. Recently the
key to Bacon's manuscript, wherein valuable solar hints are be
lieved to be,' has been discovered and its translation is in pro
gress. " " ' ' f
'' In all these attempts at "free heat," from the time of Archi
medes down to the present, the principle has been the same to
focus the rays on a given point in such a way as to vastly inten
sify its heat.
r' The advancement made has not been so much in the arrange
ment of the mirrors as in the device upon which they have been
playing, whether a "hot box" or a steam boiler. As a result of
improvement in that section of the problem, it is now possible
fo produce 14 pounds of steam per hour for each 100 square
feet of mirror surface exposed to the sun. When the experi
ments were started anew a few years ago the maximum produc
tion was 7.5 pounds for each 100 square feet.
( A sun station on the edge of the Sahara desert has been for
some time pumping water for irrigation and is said to be pay
mg for itself, though by a very narrow margin. Dr. C. G. Ab
bott, representing the Smithsonian Institution, has for several
years been making tests in the territory around Los Angeles,
and particularly on Mt. V nson. -
The whole sun-power problem, indeed,- has reached the
stage of development where scientists are feverishly interested,
bnt do not wish to make sweeping statements. Meanwhile they
are incheasing appreciably the brake horse-power production of
their apparati. That the practical point has almost been
reached is indicated in that the Smithsonian reports say that sun
rower can be used successfully in competition with coal when
that fuel costs $18.75 a ton. '
The margin, of course, is still too narrow to tempt investors,
tyut if the rate of advancement during the last seven years in ex
periments in solar power is even approximated within the pe
riod immediately ahead it in safe to predict that "Turn on the
Sttnshine" will be the slogan for a magnificent period of indus-
I'iipid under the favorable conditions existing in the arid lands
trial development. That development would be particularly
I'in I under the favorable conditions existing in the arid lands
ad ucint to this gateway to the Pacific. - .
Would it not be a strange thing if a dead hand out of the
thirteenth century should reach down Into this age and turn on
tho t-uiiihine in such a way Hi to make it drive the wheels for a
aw industrial" era ? Stranger things have happened.

Here's why: ,
He dropped a hand miror, breaking

thief stole accessories from his other
machine. Xext burglars cleaned out
