The attitude taken by many Americans toward the
assumption of mandatory duties by the United States is
cowardly and inconsistent.
The American people went into the war with the de
clared intention of making the world safe and free for all
nations, large or small. The first step necessary was the
military defeat of the Central rowers, who were in a

An island all their own is the proud possession of
the Boy Scouts of Philadelphia. Situated in the beautiful
Delaware river, surrounded by mountainous country well
adapted to camping and trapping, it bids fair to become
the Boys' Own Paradise.

come so. as thev learn the reason for the island's name.
The week from June 6 to 14 is set aside for national
observance of Boy Scout Week, with the especial end in
view of showmjr recognition of the taithtul services ot tne
boys during wartime, and to extend the membership and
work of the boys everywhere.
The community making such a gift as Treasure
Island, shows its appreciation of the Boy Scout movement
and its understanding of boyish hearts and will profit
more than the boys will, which is saying a good deal.
Just now there are many ragged vacant lots irt Salem
and the grass and weeds in the parkings need cutting
badly in many places. If there is an ordinance by wnicn
(he clearing up of such property can be enforced the city
officials should see that it is enforced. If there is no such
ordinance, one should be enacted at once. Neatly kept
grounds enhance the value of every piece of city property.

A wife's not worth the sock she's knitting, she lacks
cil dignity and charm, who goes around the town admit
ting her husband is a false alarm. But yesterday I heard
a lady complaining of her wedded state; she sat beneath
an elm tree shady, and railed and grumbled at her fate.
She said, "Alas, when I was married I left my mascot in
the lurch; I picked a lemon when I carried my veil and
bridal wreath to church. I cuss my luck in Greek'and
Latin; I might have had a better man, who would have
knight me silk and satin, equipped mc with a fine sedan.
I kit I was young and Fate was yellow, I'd only lived thru
eighteen Junes; and so I gathered in a fellow who barely
earns enough for prunes." She grumbles as she does her
luuninin,' she grouches as she kicks the cat; it was the
husband drew the lemon her line of talk is proof of that.
The wife who's worth the rags she's wearing won't call
her hub an also ran; though he is punk, she still is swear
ing she harvested the finest man. He may be trifling as
a poet, as worthless as a can of soup; but she won't let the
neighbors know it, won't let the news leak from her coop.
She may pull out his whiskers hoary, and press hot flat
irons on his head; but ere she'd tell her friends the story,
f he'd see herself among the dead.

which American people have little interest. But some
body has got to do it, if the fruits of victory are not
thrown away. The United States can engage in such
work with better hope of success than any of the other
powers, because of the very fact that this country is dis
interested and is recognized as such by all the world.
As for the objections that Americans do not want to
mix in European affairs, it probably is well to point out
that we have already been doing that for some time now,
drawn by the resistless logic of world events, and there
is little prospect of getting back to our old isolation.
Moreover, the only new thing about "mandatories"
is the name. The United States has been acting for years
ks mandory for several Central American countries, and
has made a very good job of it.

The seventy-fifth anniversary of the founding of
Willamette University will be celebrated with a pageant
depicting the growth and development of the Oregon
country from the pioneer days in which this, the oldest
University west of the Rocky Mountains, was founded.
The occasion, marking three-fourths of a century of stir
ring history, is memorable, and the spectacle which will
depict will be pretentious, carefully arranged as to
detail and carried out with historical fidelity. "Old Wil
lamette" is in truth an old institution, as we view things
in this new country, and it has stamped its impress upon
the hearts and minds of several generations since its
door swung open to receive students, when the future
capital of Oregon was a mere outpost of civilization, and
Oregon an almost trackless widnerness. And in so early
an opening of such an institution those Methodist pioneers
;aid the foundation well and wisely upon which the Pa
cific Northwest has grown to greatness, not only in
wealth' and population, but in the intelligence and char
acter of the people who planted their homes here and
were permanent factors in that growth and development.
The history of Willamette University is rich in accom
plishment and the romance and traditions of things that
reach back to pioneer days make the celebration of its
anniversary an event of peculiar interest and appeal.
Bad manners are contagious. Carranza refused
to recognize the League of Nations, and now just when
he thought he had his government firmly established,
Mexico seems inclined not to recognize him.
