"Why should beautiful women
and all the women I see here are
beautiful be compelled by an un
moral, un-American and inhuman
law tto cover their beautiful limbs?"
"What's the difference, I ask you,
between a woman's foot and a man's
foot? Do not the authorities of
Atlantic City yet know they cannot
make a people moral by law; that
only education can do that? Why, I
ask further, why not make men
wear stockings upon legs that are
not beautiful and put all horses in

Washington. Jury 21 The pro

three votes were recorded in favor

First Fight of Day.
The first fight of the day was
over the section giving courts the
right to put under bond a person
convicted of violating the liquor
law. This was stricken out after
Representative G a r d, democrat,
Ohio, had pointed out that it pro
vided double punishment for the
poor man, who might be sent to
jail. The vote was 83 to 66, many
prohibitionists opposing its reten
tion. When the house reached section
35 of the bill dealing with enforce
ment of constitutional prohibition
and which contained the provision
that it was not unlawful to store
liquor at home for personal use, the
scene was not unlike that on a stock
market on a high sales day.
Everybody wanted to speak of

Isn't it a Scream in This Day?
Declare Women Who
ALL DAY TO BED
With the greatest problems the
world has ever known yet unsolved,
two or three eastern newspapers
have started beauty contests in
which women, who were considered
good looking, were entered (with
and without their permission) as
eligible prize winners. In each in
stance this feature has brought- a
storm of protest from the majority
of women, who contend that since
the war has taken women away from
the "nothings and the froth of life,"
it is hampering progress to foster
such a foolish movement.
Despite this protest from think
ing women of other cities, an Oma
ha newspaper kas started a similar
contest which also has brought
forth a volley of opinions from
leading Omaha women.
Be Patient With Them.
Mrs. Draper Smith has this to
say: "The war has done great
things for women for most women
but there are a few who have
been approached from every angle
women upon whom the fairest of
eloquence has been used with a view
to interesting them in bigger things
than beauty contests and their own
personal appearance (to the exclu
sion of everything else) but to no
avail. Their interest could not be
aroused. What they pass over in
the world's great events is meat for
the progressive mind. But these
women will always be with us
these women who would rather be
in a beauty contest or at a pink tea
than to do their bit for world peace.
We should be patient with them."
Isn't It a Scream.
Another woman who stands for
things artistic, scientific and prog
ressive is Mrs. George Prinz. She
says: "Isn't it a scream? While
the greatest history the world has
ever known is in itsriaking isn't
it strange that women should have
either time or inclination to put up
their physical charm as a target of
criticism? Of course, though, most
women wouldn't consider such a
thing for a minute. Discussions are

London. July 21. (By the Asso

George replied to his critics in the
debate in the house of commons on
the second reading of the German
peace treaty and the Anglo-French
convention. His recent announce
ment that the former German em
peror would be tried before a tri
bunal in London had created much
discussion, and several members, in
cluding Lord Robert Cecil, ex
pressed doubts as to the advisability
of the trial being held in London.
The selection of. a neutral country
for this purpose, it has been con
tended, would have been better.
The premier in answer to this
"What right have we to assume
that any neutral country could de
sire to be the scene of such a trial?
The allies have sufficient confidence
in this country that whoever comes
he're for trial will receive a trial
equal to the highest, of the British
nation and there are none higher in
"If war is to be abolished it must
be treated not as an honorable

the mysterious prisoners who
