When Nicholas Longworth first
came to Washington, says the Na
tional Republic, he was one of the
social lions of the day and it was
inevitable that he should meet Alice
Roosevelt, dashing daughter of the
strenuous President. Most of the
young men in the social, political
and diplomatic set of that time paid
their court to Princess Alice, but
the Taft trip to the Orient completed
the conquest and Nicholas Longworth
became the son-in-law of Theodore
This distinction was not entirely
an asset, for there were those who
looked upon him in the light of a
social curosity and even today, most
of the visitors of the House, ask to
be shown Alice Longworth's husband.
But Longworth lived down what
ever handicap there was in his dis
tinguished matrimonial alliance. He
dug into his work and finally . the
House came to know him as a man
of unusual intelligence.
He served on the Ways and Means
Committee and finally emerged as
the floor leader of the House, a prize
given only to men who have proved
themselves in one of the severest
testing plants ever devised.
In politics Longworth always was
a conservative. He admired his father-in-law,
but his sympathies and his
convictions were along the line of
conservatism which made him "re
gular" although he has never been
ultra conservative.
"In Alice Longworth he found u
rarely accomplished political assis
tant, one who has been frequently de
scribed as the "best man in the
Roosevelt family," and whose influ
ence in public life, exerted through
sheer political common sense is not
less than that of any woman who
has ever lived in the capital.
Ludovic Naudau, writing in L'lllus
tration (Paris weekly) of the Locar
no conference, gives the United
credit for bringing the pressure to
bear which made the Locarno secttr
ity pact possible. He says: "Why
did the Germans propose last Feb
ruary this Rhineland pact, which has
just been signed at Lacarno? First
of all, because they wanted to bor
row the American and English cap
ital indispensable for their economic
revival. Although they possess an
immense industrial plant and inex
haustible natural resources, the Ger
mans are in acute need of liquid
funds. They are threatened with a
great business crisis. But the Uni
teed States refuses to loan large
sums of money to a Europe threat
ened with new wars. Oh, irony of
human destiny! The imperious nec
essity of eating that made the Ger
mans of yesterday a predatory na
tion makes them today converts to
pacifism. It was absolutely neces
sary, therefore, for the German peo
ple to escape from their distressing
isolation. They must restore the
world's confidence in themselves be
fore they could recover the place in
the world they occupied before tha
war. America, sitting tight on her
strong-box and eager to pacify the
universe, said to the French: 'Dis
arm!' The French answered: 'Im
possible! The wicked Germans would
destroy us.' America thereupon said
to the Germans: 'Give these French
men unquestionable proof that your
intentions are pacific. Make peace
with them, or you get no more mon
ey from me.' That is the history of
the Locarno."
ly or any very definite health work
attempted, taking as a basis of judg
ment the number of superintendents
answering a questionaire sent to
2,500, concerning health activities in
rural schools. Of these communities,
according to data collected by the
Interior Department, Bureau of Ed
ucation, and embodied in School
Health Study No. 10, Progress and
Prospect in School Health Work,
about seventy-five per cent have
some form of medical inspection and
fifty per cent have dental inspection.
Physical education is carried on in
about seventy-five per cent of these
schools. Gynmasiums were reported
in forty per cent, playgrounds in
thirty per cent, and swimming in
one per cent. A noon lunch is ser
ved in forty per cent of the schools

cause of the "warble fly," according
to tho United States department of
agriculture educational film "The Ox
Warblo A Fifty-Million Dollar
Tune." The warble as an adult is an
innocent appearing fly which alights
on the logs of cattle and lays Us
i':,'gs. The microscopic grubs that
hatch from the eggs burrow through
the hide and work their way to the
animal's gullet and thence to the
back, where they become full sized.
They perforate the hide and drop to
the ground to go through certain
changes of form, then emrgo as
J: mlult flioa and begin the cycle all
over again. Often as many as ?00
prub holes will be found in a single
hide, and the total damage to hides
alone is tremendous. The presence
of the grubs also causes the animals
to lose weight and keeps down milk
production. Actual photography and
animated drawings trace the life his
tory of the insect, and methods of
controlling tho pest are emphasized
in the department of ngrlculure film,
In only about 30 per cent of the
rural communities of the United
States is health wrjrk taken serious
The once despised "wood pussy" is
coming to be recognized as an asset
to the communities it habits. Though
a chance encounter with one may
still be a source of banter, the skunk
as a fur bearer has real dignity in
this country, ranking second only to
muskrats in importance. Thirty
four .states now have laws protecting
skunks, with open season of lVss to
(5 months. There are still 14 states
that give no protection what ever to
skunks, and one which protects them
in only a few counties. The biologic
al survey recommends a closed sea
son of at least nine months, but
would always reserve the right of
farmers to destroy predatory skunks.
The skins of skunks are prime from
about the middle of October tj the
middle of February.
The American communist press be
trays its knowledge of the hidden
movement in the Orient to bring
about a coalition of Japanese and so
viet forces for the joint domination
of China, Manchuria and the island
of Sakhalin. The American public
is getting a very incomplete picture
of the br forces behind the manipu
lation of Chinese military chieftains,
but the full significance of these
maneuvers will startle the world
when fully comprehended. Japanese
collaboration with soviet Russia will
perhaps ultimately result in the
downfall of the Japanese as well as
the Chinese government, and the
crushing of both peoples under the
heels of a "red" military despotism.
The World War taught us many
new health lessons, and not the least
was the emphatic demonstration of
the ill effects that can be produced
by neglect of the human body. In
the last analysis war is a survival
of the fittest and only the truly
physically fit can endure the long
continued physical and mental strain
to which military men are frequent
ly subjected.

be present at the recital.

The teacher In a South Boston

learn of her progress after she was
promoted to a higher grade and asked
her new teacher, concerning her.
"There Is no such child In my room,"
answered the one so questioned.
"No Marie Levenskll Whyl I know
that tee was sent to your room, for I
asked about It at the time."
"There Is no Marie Levenskl in my

"But I have seen her go In the door,
and there she Is now," darting as she
spoke toward a small girl approaching
from the opposite direction. "Isnt
your name Marie Levenskl?" she de
manded. "It used to be, but now It la Mary
Jones," was the calm reply.
"Mary Jones I How can that be?"
"Why, father buys and sells old
