Senator Lodge is right in sayin
that reduction in military or naval
expenditures by the United States is
under present conditions, perilous to
the country. His statement on this
subject coincides precisely with that
of former Secretary of the Navy Dan
iels, who, in testimony before the
Naval Committee last winter, warned
Congress that in case America re
mains outside the League of Nations,
it is ;he imperative duty of this na
tion io have the greatest navy in
the world. Senator Lodge is thus
hoisted by his own petard, compell
ed as he is now to recognize that
this madness in keeping the United
States out of the League has forced

people continuation and increase

ing from necessary military and
The Lodge polcy has made of the
United States little less than an Ish
maelite among nations. The pending
tariff bill as well as the Emergency
tariff now in effect gives the finish

that has increased the army of un
employed, cut down exports to for
eign countries and foreign imports
to this country und spread industrial
depression from coast to coast.
It is idle in Senator Lodge or any
of his associates who wrought this
work of assassination of the country's
industry and commerce to set up this
belated plea in defense of maintain
ing existing armament on the pro-
sent scale. Every one knows that so
long as the folly that he fathered
persists in the Washington govern
ment, the nation must have arma
ment in constantly increasing magnitude.
Paradoxical though jit may seem
this increased armament is slaying
the thing it feeds on. The more mon
ey required by this policy, the longer
will be continued the present de
pressed conditions, which Senator

PLAYGROUND OF THE LEGION
The plans are being materialized
for the formation in this city of a
voiture of the "Nationale La Societe
des 10 Hommes et S Chevaux,"
which has in the last few months
been gaining in popularity among
the members of the American Legion.
This organization is composed of
men who are also members of the
Americian Legion and the title is
clearly understood by the service
men who have had experience in
France or any part of Europe during
the late war.
It is the playground of the service
men and here they find the spirit of
good humor and pleasure exemplified
to its fullest. It has no dull moments
and the initatory ceremonies are
such as to creat the greatest of in
terest both for the initated and those
who are eye witnesses of the event.
It is necessary to secure fiften of
the legion men to secure the charter
and those who desire to recall mem
ories of the chemin de fer have only
to secure an application blank, fill
it out and prepare to have one of
the times of their lives.
