Plan Expansion of Industry After the
War to Pay Off Stagger
New York, Nov. 15. The most im
Iortant action taken by any of the
belligerents for recovery from the ex
hausting destructiveness of the war is
the American tour of an industrial
commission from France, which will
study ways for increasing French
productivity when peace is declared.
France is thus preparing in advance
to offset the financial burdens of the
war. There is only one way for the
belligerent nations to overcome the
dead weight of indebtedness which
the war is causing. A nation pays its
debts by its products. If, when the
war is ended, the European countries
are able largely to increase their pro
ductivity, they can provide without
difficulty for the proper liquidation of
the liabilities they are now contract
ing. This is what saved Europe after
the Napoleonic wars. An era of in
vention of labor saving machinery
caused an immense industrial expan
sion throughout Europe and the largo
increase in productivity was much
more than sufficient to wipe off Eu
rope's long years of financial losses.
During the century which has fol
lowed the United States has made
greater strides in industrial efficiency
than any of the European countries.
American workers are from two to
five times more productive per mat
than are European workers. France
has recognized this fact and has sent
a commission to the United States to
learn American methods. The indus
trial center of France is in the north
ern departments now held by devas
tated area. Here is the opportunity
to catch up with the financial -waste
of the war.
If the new factories are equipped
with American machinery and if the
American regard for efficiency is ap
preciated and followed, France can re
cover from the exhaustion of the war
and can increase in wealth and pros
perity at the same time. The samt
principle is open to all the other bel
ligerents and they must adopt it, or
future generations will be enthralled
by the staggering debts of the war.
American industrial methods alone
can save Europe from almost intoler
able taxation after the war is ended.
NAME TAKEN OFF
Washington, Nov. 16. Associate
Justice Charles E. Hughes of the
United States supreme court is taking
iiuiet steps to have withdrawn the
nominating petition filed by some of
his admirers in Nebraska, who have
named him for the presidency. Ne
braskans in Washington do not believe
that the justice will be forced to the
embarrassing course of appealing to
the courts of Nebraska to keep his
name from the Nebraska ballot.
Those familiar with the Nebraska
law say that Mr. Hughes' simple re
quest will probably be enough to ef
fect the withdrawal of the petition,
though a ruling by the attorney gen
eral of Nebraska may be necessary.
But it is said on good authority that
even if judicial -action should prove
to be needed Mr. Hughes will not
hesitate to go even that far.
Mr. Hughes feels that the least sus
picion of political activity -on the su
preme bench weakens the prestige and
assails the dignity of the highest court
in the country.

MRS. ZUCKER ENTER
Yesterday afternoon Mrs. V.
Zucker entertained the ladies of the
Kensington club at her cozy home and
the occasion was one of the most
pleasant that the ladies have enjoyed
this season and the gracious hospital
ity will be long very pleasantly re
membered. The occasion was one
tinged with regret, however, as the
event was in the nature of a farewell,
as the hostess is to withdraw from
the club and the members will miss
very much the pleasant association
they have enjoyed in the past. The
afternoon was spent in the making of
dainty articles of needlework, as well
as pleasant social conversation and
several pleasing instrumental selec
tions by Miss Dorothy Zucker served
to add to the pleasures of the after
noon. At a suitable hour a most de
lectable four-course luncheon was
served, that added very much to the
pleasures of the event. The dining
room was arranged most artistically
with streamers of red and green drap
ed from the chandelier to the center of
the table, where a centerpiece of fruit
and smilax made a beautiful touch
to the general decorative scheme, tiny
baskets in red were placed as favors
of the afternoon. Mrs. Zucker was
assisted in serving by Mesdames W. D.
Smith and Chas. Mehering. As guests
of the club on this occasion there were
present Mesdames W. E. and Clayton
Rosencrants, Joseph Droege, John
Bauer, sr., M. E. Manspeaker, C. F.
Vallery and F. G. Egenberger.

that in many cases croup can be pre
vented. Mrs. H. M. Johns, Elida,

croup. During the past winter I kept
a bottle of Chamberlain's Cough Rem
edy in the house, and when he began
having that croupy cough I would give
him one or two doses of it and it
would break the attack. I like it bet
ter for children than any other cough
medicine, because children take it wil
lingly, and it is safe and reliable."

AUDIENCE LAST NIGHT
The Empress vaudeville at the Par

greater part of the audience with their
different acts, which were purely in
the nature of a program of laughter
and mirth, and there was not a dull
moment from the start to the finish
and everyone was given their fullest
opportunity of enjoying a good laugh
at the different acts presented. De
Voe and Dayton, the eccentric dancer?,
were one of the pleasing features of
the program, as well as Creighton,
Belmont and Creighton, the Mudtown
minstrels, added their part in the ban
ishment of sorrow with their novel
and interesting burlesque on the reg
