OUR DEAD IN FRANCE.
The French government strongly opposes removal of
' American soldier dead to this country for a period of at
least three year
No resentment should be felt because of this attitude.
The disinterment and transportation of a large num
ber of bodies might easily be a source oi serious epidemic
. of disease in France, something which that country is in
no condition to face.
Transportation facilities are hopelessly insufficient
for the needs of the living; their further congestion
vvnuld work creat hardship.
Tha French people have forgone having the bodies
of rhpir own dead returned because it is felt that the sad
dening effect upon the people would be unbearable. They
M e a nation in deepest mourning as n is.
Great Britain will not remove her dead.
American "Fields of Honor" already are being es
tablished in France. To these bodies of our soldiers are
being taken, and the graves will be tended and recorded
in everv instance with the utmost care.
The personal sacrifice may be great: but if the great
er good demands that,, for a time at least, no bodies be
brought back to America, undoubtedly the sacrifice will

At present there are no roofs in New York big enough
for airplane use. This would provide landings for the
air traffic of many years in the future.
It would cost $100,000,000, says Dr. Thomson. It
would be worth much more than that. Air facilities, '

would far more than repay the cost of building the new

Fiction writers used to dwell upon the idea of sinking
New York into the sea by some Hunnish plot or Martian
accident. 15ut it is no iiction writer, no ureamy visionary,
who has.the latest idea of building Manhattan island two
more miles into the sea. It is Dr. T. Kennard Thomson,
a famous consulting engineer and an authority on pneu
matic caissons, who wants to do this.
The picture of Dr. Thomson's plan is in the July Pop
ular Science Monthly. It shows an extension built on to
The film reformers are rejoicing because two movie
stars have decided to write and act their own film plays.
The pictures are to contain a "moral as well as a story."'
The first one is now being produced, and deals with
divorce and its effects upon the children of the couple
It is believed by people who 1 have deprecated the
class of moving pictures generally produced that this
marks the beginning of better things in the screen world.
But does it, after all?
There is great need of clean, wholesome, interesting
moving pictures just as there is need of such books and
such plays. But people who think the way to reform the
screen is by presenting so unsavory and complex a prob
lem as divorce are as far removed from the light as are
The Way to counteract the evil is by the positive
methodmaking the things that are good attractive and
interesting, so that people will become absorbed in them
and have no time for evil.
After all possible care has been exercised, the real
crux of the matter is in the attitude of the" onlooker. And
reforming the attitude of the onlooker must begin, like
charity, at home.
About three hundred and fifty editors will visit Salem
tomorrow evening. They are on their way to Crater
Lake, the greatest scenic wonder on the Western Contin
ent, and since they are from all parts of the United States,
will spread the fame of Oregon's beauty and resources
rnrougnout an tne land.

New York burglars rifled three office safes and
only got $:50. Why waste their time on the hoardings
of American business men when, if reports are true, they
could get $1000 apiece from the emigrants going back to
the old country? !
Portland as usual was a little slow and San Francisco,
Seattle and Tacoma gobbled all the bacon and principal
army supplies sold at Camp Lewis. Portland, however,
is promised some canned tomatoes.

1 You Are Indeed Fortunate
If you have found it unnecessary to wear glasses
but very unfortunate if you have neglected to do so
when it is really urgent.
By correcting a slight error in your sight today,
you will save a troublesome vision later on.
O.ur desire to win your satisfaction is our spur,
to be minutely thorough in all that we do for you.
Let us examine your eyes and make your glasses.
We can better satisfy you because our work is
performed under one system and one roof.

HUNTING A HUSBAND
BY MAY DOUGLAS
A NEW FEIEND
An insurance company has to pay $0000 to the owner
of 20 "educated fleas" that were burned to death in Cal
ifornia. Which seems to show the value of education.
The high cost of living will be augmented by the ex
pense of investigating it.

you'll walk with kings, or be a wealthy poet. 1 used tu
tide a mangy steed, and herd a bunch of cattle, while
thinking I was born to lead the mighty hosts in battle.
Such work to me was an offense; the ground was rough
and rutty, the pony hadn't any sense, the cattle all wee
. nutty. 1 herded, though, the best I knew, and chased the
hivtH'd litifvis, while through my sorrel sideboards blew
&11 kinds of wintry zephyrs. And when I uit the foreman
cried, urbanely and politely, "You seemed to take an hon-
