IGNORANCE ABOUT EUROPEAN WAR
Society folks of the northwest, says a St. Paul dis
patch, are not now using the names of all their discarded
husbands. So it seems the hyphenated social leader is to
go out of style too. It is pleasing to note, however, that
the ladies are wearing their names shorter, and this will
be appreciated by the society editors. Mrs. Reginald
Woodruf fe Worthington has cut out Woodruffe and is
just R. G. Worthington. Mrs. Roger Marmaduke-Han-drom-Wessington
no longer uses the names of all the hus
bands she has annexed,, wearing them as a string of
matrimonial pearls, or scalps won in legal battles, but
just uses the Wessington until she acquires another and
puts Wessington with the other scalp locks.
Minority Leader Mann seems rightly named. He man
fully remarks that the country's interests should always
be regarded as greater than any partisan consideration,
and then proceeds to make good his words by voting that

students at the various colleges, where certain questions! Ple of the United States ask no conciliatory measures
as to the war were asked, and only about GO per cent of
the answers were correct. Our big contemporary blames
the college faculties for this, saying they have the stu
dents delving in ancient history to the exclusion of the
world-stirring events that are now making history. This
may be true as to the college youngsters, but how about
the great mass of the people? How many business men
could answer those same questions?
How many ot the lawyers or doctors in Oregon could
tell the name of the sultan of Turkey or where the battle
of the Marne was fought? How many of them could tell
whom that decisive battle was fought by or what its im
mediate results were? How many could name the presi
dent of France, the capital of Bulgaria, the situation of
Riga, the ruler of Bulgaria and his title, or any of a
hundred questions of that kind?
Yet these business and professional men are not delv
ing in ancient or any other history. They along with most
other American citizens read the daily papers and the
news of the war. They do not, however, undertake to fol
low the news intelligently by looking up the location of
the battlefields or by using their maps getting an intel
ligent idea of the war zones.
They and other Americans have about as indistinct an
idea about the whole affair as the citizens of the east used
to have about the west. All they knew was that it was out
toward the Pacific coast somewhere, and that everybody
there wore chaps and carried deadly revolvers. Mon
tana and Arizona were side by side so far as they knew,
or cared; and there are many yet who still have these

knowledge of the war history and geography as compared
with the average citizen.

Postal Savings System is designed to
promote thrift and economy. Al
though everyone has easy access to
it, it is utilized for ihc most part by
the wage earners. Mr. Alexander M.
Dockery, Third Assistant I'n--.tmav
Jer-icneral, is authority for the state
ment that 59 per cent of all the de
positors at the close of the last fiscal
year were born outside of the United
States and owned 7J per cent of all
the money on deposit. The statistics
show that the Kussians outstrip other
foreign-bom depositors, with JO. 7
per cent of ail the deposits to their
credit. The Italians are next wiiliit .c
cent. Natives of Great
Britain and her colonics rank third,
with 88 per cciu. Austrian come
next with 8.7 per cent. These arc
followed by Hungarians with 4.3 per
cent; Germans, with 4.1 per cent;
Swedes with 2.1 per cent; and Greeks
with 1.8 per cent. There are a mini-'
her of other nationalities that own
7 per cent of the deposits. New York

Minnesota and Missouri have nearly
that amount ; Oregon, Wisconsin and'

The popularity of the Postal Sav-i
ings System and the rapidity of its
growth may be seen from the faetl
that during the six months of the
fiscal year 1911 when the system was'
first in operation, the deposits were
if()77.145. At the close ot the fiscal
vear, Tunc 30, 1915, the deposits were
