WASHINGTON. In response to the appeal of the Anglo-American society.
Sir George Watson has given tho sum of 20.000 required for the foun
dation nnd endowment of a chair In American history, literature and In
stitutions, In order to promote such
If this sum be given by a single
donor, the name of the donor will bo associated with the chair.
It Is not proposed that the chair shall be exclusively attached to one
university, but that It shall be used for the general purpose of stimulating
interest and study of America In all the Hrltlsh universities.
Neither will the chair be held permanently by one scholar of a single
nationality. The scheme provides that It shall be held, for a period of ono
to two years, alternately by an American and a British scholar or public man
thus drawing upon tho best Intellectual resources of the two countries, and
securing a variety of treatment of the subjects dealt with.
This novel kind of foundation has been selected by a special committee of
the Anglo-American society, under the chairmanship of Lord Glenconor.
Tho committee Is of opinion that ibis foundation would greatly assist
to create In Great Hrltaln a wider knowledge of America today, nnd of tho
history, literature and institutions of this great trans-Atlantic commonwealth
of English-speaking people.
Virgin Islanders Want Local Civil Government
THE 75,000 people of the ' three Virgin Islands In the West Indies, which
the United States purchased In 1017 from the Danish government for $25,
000.000, think It Is high time they should have local civil government. Up
to date they have been governed by
the United States navy department,
which Is quite willing to get rid of tho
Job. Congress seems to think that
the proposition Is worth looking into.
Anyway, the senate recently passed a
Joint resolution, which the house
m mended. It was evidently slated for
passage nnd at last accounts was as
"Kesolved, etc., That a joint com
mission to consist of three members
of the Senate and three members of
the House of Itopresontutlvos, to be nppolnted by the Vice President of the
United States, and the Speaker of the House, respectively, Is hereby created
lo visit the Virgin Islands nnd to report fully to Congress as to existing con
ditions lu the said Islands, and particularly to report and recommend action
by Congress, If need there be therefor, with reference to whether the present
novernmeiit under executive direction should lie superseded by civil government
provided by Congress ns contemplated by act of March .'1, 1017 (IIO Stat., p.
IKiii), said government being now only temporary lu character and by order
i.f the President being now vested In olllcers of the Navy; also, as to whether
'engross should at this time provide for a civil government of the Islands
by an organic act; also what, If any, legislation Is necessary pending tho
iornmtlon and adoption of an organic act, and as to the general conditions
existing in the Islands. Said report to be filed at the earliest date practicable,
and during the Sixty-sixth Congress."
The United Slates bought the Virgin Islands so that Germany should not
acquire them. They are on the way to tho Panama canal.
The people of the Islands have asked for this commission, their Idea being
that It should hold hearings und give them a chance to set forth their needs.

tion states that Professor Goddard Is at present perfecting tho reloading
mechanism of his rocket under a grant from the Institution, anil It Is hoped
that a demonstration of its practicability and value can be made soon.
"The apparatus," says the Smithsonian announcement, "designed and
tested by Professor Goddard Is a multiple-charge, high efllclency rocket of
un entirely new design. The determining factor of the elllclency of a rocket
Is the velocity of ejection of tho gases duo to the explosion of tho propelling

Carranza Needs a "Vice President" Like "Spot"
WHAT the United States could do for .Mexico has been demonstrated by
the regeneration of three American republics accomplished by virtual
protectorates established by Uncle Sum
The three republics are Haiti,
Santo Domingo, and Nicaragua. In
the case of Haiti anil Santo Domingo
the protectorate was estaullshed and
Is still maintained by force of arms.
In tho caso of Nicaragua It was es
tablished by consent, though United
States marines hnvo maintained order
In tho republic for nearly a decade.

mlulstratlon had not undertaken to

GAY AND POPULAR RESORT
Biarritz, In Southern France, Noted
as the Scene of European Fri
volity and Fashion.
One of tho gayest and mosf popu
lar watering resorts of Europe- Is Biar
ritz In Franco, about forty miles from
the Spanish border. Its nearness to
Spain has colored Its language and ar
chitecture somewhat, giving It tho plo
turesqueness of both countries. It Is
a beautiful place, with Its cream-colored,
red-roofed villas, dark pine trees,
winding walks and crescent of white
sandy beach gun-Mod at either end by
high, rocky bluffs, rising abruptly from
the sea. Before the war It was tho
scene of frivolity and fashion, rival
ing Monte Carlo lu Its gambling, danc
ing and display. It was a favorite
resort with one of England's more
playful kings In his lighter moments.
Indeed, Its main Rtreot Is called Ituo
Edouard VII lu honor of him.
The war brought a sudden change'
of mood to Hlarrltz. Its gambling ca
sinos nud hotels were turned Into hos
pitals for wounded French, and later
American soldiers. Grim convoys of
warships passed close to Its shores on
their way through the Hay of Biscay.
Numerous ships were torpedoed in
sight of the shore by tho German sub
marines lurking along the Spanish
coast. The coast was heavily mined,
and from time to time the detonation
of a mine would shako tho town.
