APRIL THIS COUNTRY'S WAR MONTH
The anthropological sharps have been discussing the
proposition that the man of the future will be without
teeth and hair.
There is no more rigid law of nature than that the

And why not the stomach, too? Predigested foods yarcis.
leave it nothing to (to.
Indeed, by a recent operation a man was surgically
relieved of a sore stomach and has since been well and
It has already been suggested, says the British Medical
Journal, that the veriform appendix should be removed
from every infant as a routine measure. Thus relief
would be gained from one troublesome organ that has
fallen into disuse.
But this is clearly not sufficient. The surgery of the
future must include far more than this. The tonsils and
turbinate bones of the nose must also be cut out because
they harbor germs.
What Arbuthnot Lane calls "the human cesspool"
that is, the large intestine must also be removed, along
with a considerable portion of the alimentary canal, be
cause it only gives trouble and won't be needed when we
are living on tabloidod foods and pills.
The readily decaying teeth are already pulled out early
in life and the germ-proof store variety inserted.
The failing human eye will be, in fact is now, antici
pated by spectacles in early youth.

All the important vars the United States has been en
gaged in began in April. With the present conditions in
Mexico it looks very much as though the list was to be
still further extended.
Just what the administration will decide to do in the
matter of chasing VUIr and answering Mexico's demand
that American troops be withdrawn no one knows, but it
hardly seems probable that troops will be recalled for
some time at least.
Then there is that dispute with Germany over the
submarine warfare. What will come of it is also for the
future to decide, though it is probably for the very near
future. It can hardly result' in war for if the two coun
tries wanted to fight, which neither does, and it is hoped
never will, they could only do so at long distance. It
seems likely though that diplomatic relations will be
severed, and this is certainly bad enough.
This afternoon at ? o'clock there took place at St.
Helens the launching of the auxilliary schooner, City of
Portland, from the yards of the St. Helens Shipbuilding
Company. She will be equipped with two Bolinger en
gines and when her canvas is not drawing, these will drive
twin screws so she will be kept moving all the time. She
will carry two million feet of lumber, and is the first of a
fleet of similar lumber carriers building at the St. Helens

When modern science gets after a thing that thing
might as well fold its wings and surrender. Recently it
was discovered that spotted fever was due to sage ticks.
This was science' first trick. Then it found the ground
squirrel was the natural home and abiding place of the
tick. Result, farmers down in Grant county where the
spotted fever has been epidemic and is still so, have be

The new army flying record was made yesterday in
Mexico, when Lieutenant Dargue of the aviation corps,
carrying Lieutenant Garrell as observer, made 1510 miles
in four hours and ten minutes, much of the flight being
made at an altitude of one mile above the ground, which
made their flight two miles above sea level. This is a
pretty good showing for aviators of whorfl it has been
repeatedly said they could not fly. Their average speed
was 75 miles an hour.
Strawberry shortcake is on the menus at the restaur

As the Salem woman with a baby and a bundle or two
in her arms glances up the stile leading to the hurricane
deck of a Salem street car she cheerfully sings: "Its a

that "the climb is steep and hard."
If that German submarine commander had time to

he certainly had time to warn its passengers to leave it,
The Oregonian says no American industry has profited
more than agriculture by the stimulation of exports and
the check on imports which are due to the war. In a sense
this is true, for ocean carrying can hardly be considered
an American industry. The latter however is the indus
try that has profited more than any other by the war.
Wheat is the greatest agricultural export, and while the
prices have been and are still high in Europe, they are
almost normal in this country for the simple reason that
the shipping industry has absorbed all the profits. Wheat
rates have gone up by jumps, and the jumps have been

It is some country for size at least, where a couple of
provinces with more than a hundred million citizens can
cut loose from the parent country and leave anything.
Yet China has done this and on top of it another province
of twenty millions has joined the revolutionists. In other
words China has lost a portion of her territory with a
larger population by twenty millions than the United
States has, and yet we think we are some nation.
