Viviani's Mission to America.
The coming of Rene Viviani, former premier
of France and acknowledged leader of European
thought, who is about to pay a visit to President
Harding, is awaited with much pardonable
curiosity by Americans. Advance notices have
generally been to the effect that he will discuss
with the president certain details of the Treaty
of Versailles and the covenant of the League of
Nations contained therein, seeking for points of
agreement. Statesmen no longer make a secret
of the fact that France and England are ready
to forego Article X and submit to material
modifications of other provisions, if by doing so
they can secure American adherence to the cov
enant. However, Mr. Harding has said very
plainly he will have none' of it.
This leads directly to a more interesting ob
ject of the Viviani quest. Depending on the
Treaty of Versailles was another convention not
submitted to the senate by Mr. Wilson, enfold
ing the tripartite agreement by which the secur
ity of France is insured against German invasion.
For the mbment this is of far more value to
France than anything contained in the League of
Nations, or the Treaty of Versailles", for that
matter. Assured agairist encroachment, with
peace guaranteed by the defensive presence of
the world's greatest powers, the French people
could set about the reconstruction of their na
tional life with greater zest. Even the reparar
tion features of the treaty are secondary to this.
Therefore it does not seem unreasonable to ex
pect that M. Viviani will give some of his effort
to inducing President Harding to consider
France w being just a little more than a good
friend of the United States.
Relying on the public utterances of the presi
dent, we are inclined to believe that Mr. Harding
will move cautiously with regard to any form
of external alliance. However his sympathies
may be enlisted, he will very likely be governed
in this hjr his habit of considering America first.
Mr. Wilson acted at a time when he was unduly
exalted in spirit at least, and felt the impulse to
give the French, both moral and material en
couragement. No reason for withdrawal of
either tppean, yet the situation has been ap
preciably changed and second thought will
That the British statesmen are ready to ac
cept a modified covenant is made very plain.
Such a position was signified to Washington as.
long ago as November, 1919, when it was ad
mitted in London that Mr. Wilson had failed to
note the constitutional limitations, that bound,
him. It was the president and not Lloyd George
who refused to give, sanction to the Lodge
amendments, The. attention given the Colby
note on Mesopotamia is a fair indication of the
attitude of Great Britain.
Surface signs point to an early and complete
understanding between the Harding administra-,
tion and the rest of the world. The president
is moving slowly, but with more of possible suc
cess in sight than came to the impulsive effort of
his predecessor to set up a standard, of idealized
internationalism. , The United States will not'
again forfeit its leading place to champion a
dream, no matter how attractive.
Harding's Trust in Women.
Among the remarks seldom heard any more
is the ancient one concerning the inability of a
woman to keep a secret. In countless business .
offices the trusted private secretary is a woman.
Violations of business confidence are few and
far between. Although their work may be most
interesting and exacting, the girls seem to dis
miss it from , their minds upon leaving their
desks and to live as it were a double life, one of
business and the other the pleasant social one
that used to be thought of as the normal role of
woman. . .
President Harding is a man who firmly be
lieve that women can ktep secrets state
secrets as well as any other kind- Although it
has been the custom to employ men stenogra
phers at the White House, two young women
nOtake the president's, dictation. ' Some of the
most important matters of administration go
through their hands.
. No one who has worked in an office with thjs
class of cool, competent typists will feel that the
president has made any mistake. Women are as
safe in confidential capacities as men, and in
some cases, it may be said, are less subject to
temptation to discuss the affairs which they
handle. . "
Where Taxes Go.
It seems that down in Washington there is
what is, called the United States Bureau of
Efficiency, with Herbert D. Brown as its chief.
Just what are the duties of this office is not clear.
It is probable it has nothing to do with the ex
penditure of money, but at least it claims to know
where public funds g. Here is its statement
on thevway each dollar of taxation will he spent:
For past wars (pensions, interest on public
debt,.etc., including expense of federal control
of railroads) 68 cents.
For present defense (army and navy) 20
For salaries of the president, vice president,
congressmen, judges and all other federal office,
holders, cost of harbor improvements, good
roads, education and all other peacetime activi
ties 12 cents. , '
Certain melancholy facjts become apparent by
contemplation of this estimate. For one thing,
63 per cent of our national income is mortgaged
by the past, with no means of curtailment ex
cept in the natural expiration of pensions. Twenty
per cent of the income goes for the maintenance
and increase of armament, making a total of 88
per cent devoted to this rather unproductive but
still necessary function. All internal improve
ments and all federal salaries amount only to 12
per cent. '
Any national program of economy which
aims only at reducing from the 12 per
cent item does not offer a great deal of relief.
Even were the impossible accomplished and this
12 per cent cut in half, the saving wouW ap
proximate $250,000,000, and this would be far
from bringing down expenditures to the level of
before the war. The 20 per cent represented by
armament is the only other opportunity. If public
opinion backs military and naval retrenchment,
or if the great nations are able to agree on a
plan for limitation of arniament, some further
hope is possible, but still most of the people's
money is already spent for the wars of the past.
Settling the Electric Light Question.
When the expected again happened, and the
city council declined to grant the Nebraska
Power company an increase in rates, another
step was taken towards the settlement of a
much-vexed question. An ordinance offered by
Commissioner Ure proposed the submission of a
bond issue to the voters and, if they approve,
the devotion of the proceeds to the establish
ment of a municipal lighting plant under control
of the Metropolitan Water district.
By this step, the advocates of municipal com
petition in the electric lighting business under
take at last to proceed in an orderly fashion;
For years the city commission has had the power
to submit the question to the people and the
people have had the power to initiate action if
the commission did not follow popular opinion.
That power has not ,been exercised. Instead,
advocates of municipal ownership have claimed
it insufficient and, for reasons not always clear,
have sought new legislation.
It now develops, as The Bee contended in
the legislative fight over House Roll No. 1, that
there is a way to bring the question to a head
under existing law. The surest way to settle it,
once and for all tinfe, is to' submit it to the
voters, jit is their right to decide whether or
not they want two competing electric light'
plants, specifically in this case whether they
want to start a midget municipal plant to wage
guerilla warfare on the existing private plant.
Three years ago the ownership of the gas
plant was involved in the city campaign, at least
incidentally, because the question was brought'
before the voters at that time and candidates
for city office declared their position on the
issue. It is a matter of conjecture as to whether
or not the primary purpose of the present action
is to raise a similar issue for political purpose
in the forthcoming election. But, be that as it
may, the fact is that the people have a right to
decide questions of major importance in the con
duct of their own business. It will be well to
learn their temper 'on this vital matter of the
electric lighting plant.
Children and Parents and Rules. -
An interesting and in many ways illuminating
discussion, is going on between the parents and
tutors of the city schools in regard to the in
dividual duties and, responsibilities, rights,
privileges and mutual relations devolving or ex
isting between the parents, the tutors and the
children. This has taken a wide scope, and, while
as yet no definite conclusion has been reached as
to any of the points involved, considerable head
way may be noted; One point on which ap
proach is nearest to agreement has to do with
the division of time between work and play.
Parents as well as tutors are finding out that
laying down hard and fast rules for Ihe govern
ment of children, especially those who have
reached high school age, is not easy. A sugges
tion from the superintendent that parents must
be circumspect is timely, but the intimation that
the grownups should not keep late hours be
cause this is forbidden 4he youngsters is not so
well taken. In this, as in many other details of
the relationship, there should be two rules, one
for the adult, the other for the immature. Beyond
this lies confusion. Parents are, happily, coming
to realize once more that they are primarily re
sponsible for their children, and .most cheerfully
accept that condition. Some may go extremes
one way, some the other, being over-indulgent or
strict beyond reason, but this does not alter, the
case. Many things are not only permissible but
propeV for. the parent that are forbidden ( the
child. This notion should be instilled into' the
growing mind, to the end that trouble can be
avoided when an emergency arises, as it surely
will. . '
The problem of the hobledehoy is always a
fresh one, its solution depending on individual
treatment, testing. the sapience- as well as the
patience of the parent, but always better left to J
home handling. N

board in action.
American opposition to Japanese mandatories
in the Far East is not confined to the island of
Yap but, as indicated on February 21, 1921, in
the note of former Secretary of State Colby to
the League of Nations, to all of the islands in
the Faci'lic ocean north of the equator which for
merly belonged to Germany. These "gems of
the oriental seas," of which Yap is one, ag
gregate 127 and ate comprised in four groups,
namely the Carolines with 62, the Marshall with
32, the Marianne (or Ladrone) with 25, and the
Pelew with eight. They form a kind of strategic
seim-circle around the Philippines.
While chief interest in the discussions of the
Allied Communications conference, which began
in Washington on October 8. 1920, to determine
the allocation of these islands, has centered in
Yap by reason of its importance as a cable sta
tion, the problem of Yap is overshadowed by
the larger international aspect of the control of
all the 127 islands. The contention of the United
States Department oC State has been that Yap
should be "internationalized." The Allied Com
munications conference, attended by representa
tives of the five allied powers, becoming dead
locked in February. 1921, the questions were
referred to the foreign relations committee of
the United States senate. Date of the resump
tion of the conference has not been announced.
Opposition to Japan's mandate over Yap, ex
pressed by Mr. Colby to the president and mem
bers of the council of the League of Nations, in
cluded he declaration that Yap "constituted an
indispensable part of any scheme or practical
arrangement of cable communication in the
Pacific and that its free and unhampered use
should not be hampered or controlled by any
one power." Under the mandatory, agreed to
by France and England, '"full power of adminis
tration and legislation" over Yap was vested in
the Tokio government and Yap was to be con
sidered "an integral part of the empire of Japan."
Another objection by the United States is that
it sees in the Yap situation the possibility of a
foreign nation exercising a censorship over its
communications to Europe and Asia.
The fact that the former German operated
u e "m Shanghai, China, which passes
through Yap, was taken over bv Japan and its
oriental terminus removed to Tokio, was an
other occasion for tli Amwirm nrAi.ct
trol over Yap by japan was granted by the Paris
peace conference on May 7, 1919, when it was
decided that fhe mandate for the Pacific islands
north of the equator formerly belonging to Ger
many should be awarded to the Tokio govern
ment and the mandate for those south of the
equator to Australia and New Zealand.
It is not generally known that the island of
lap was originally called Gua'p or Wap, a
cognomen given by Spanish navigators, who dis
covered it m ,the 16th century. Until 1885 Yap,
like all the other of the Carolines, was owned
by Spam. Germany at this time cast covetous
eyes upon Yap, realizing that it was-well sit

Philippines, the Dutch East Indies and New

Too Negative Youth
An extraordinary amoflht of "concern," in the
yuaker sense, seems to'be felt just now about
the younger generation. Its literary and artistic
standards, its moral and social views, its political
opinions are endlessly discussed. The last num
ber of The Bookman, for example, has several
articles on the young enthusiasts, the young in.
tellectuals and so on. And the point stressed is
that youth is in revolt. Everything that the
elders approves it rejects. It doesn't like their
novels, their poetry, their criticism,: their painting,
their morals, their politics. The characteristic
attitude of the young is thus represented as a
There is no great novelty in this. Frosty
Conservatives today cannot forget that they were

Mark Pattison used to say that Oxford students
always revolted against their teachers, with the
result that opinion in the university completely
changed every thirty, yearsthe rebel undir
graduates coming back to be professors only in
their turn to be rebelled against. Youth is'lways
iconoclastic, but would appear to be more ab
sorbingly so today than before, if we are tp be

women are trying to make a jolly smash of what
has been established. They don't seem to be
building much of anything on the' ruins they
would make. !

a veteran English critic, for greatly daring boys

what they likel We know to surfeit what they
don't like. The sensation would be to find out
what suits them. If they are satisfied with poems
on a battered tin can on a garbage heap, or on
a dead fish floating in the gutter, let them make
that important fact known. Grant that the old is
repulsive; show us the attractive new. The rising
generation ought to be able to rise to the height
of the great modern canon of criticism: "I know
what I like." Then it could tell others what that

DISLOCATION OF JOINTS
When we speak of bones belnif
knocked out or Joint we mean th.it
the head of one bone hns been defi
nitely displaced from the socket In
which It works. When one bone
normally sliding over another lias
slid too far the term generally used
is Bupluxatlon. The bones that -set
out of their sockets most frequently
are those of the upper leg and upper
arm and the lower Jawbone.
The sockets from which they es
rape are the hip joint, the shoulder
Joint, and the Jaw Joint. The first
two of these are deep round sockets
in which the head of the limb fits
snugly. The head of the bone is held
by a strong ligament which runs
from the center of the head to the
center of tbe socket. Around the
socket is a capsule which helps to
hold the bones in position. Also act
ing as a binder are the nets of strone
muscles anU their ligaments. The
pressure of the air is another force
which operates to hold the bones
where they belong.
As a piece of mechanism the Joint
is nearly perfect. Nevertheless, force
can pull the head out of the socket,
stretch or, break the' ligament of the
Joint, tear the capsule, displace the
muscles and ligament, find land the
head of the bone outside the socket
lying on the nearby hone and caught
under some bony ridge or heavy
tendon or muscle.
A skillful surgeon, knowing: the
location of every structure in the
neighborhood, will pry the displaced
head from its new location and by
twist of the wrist without using
much force will land it back in its
proper place. The subject fels such
instantaneous relief that he will have
a tendency to forget that dislocation
is necessarily attended by breaking
or overstretching of the ligament,
tearing of the capsule, and displace
ment of tendons.
Not Infrequently the hurtling head
or the force which caused it to hurtle
Injures nerve trunks, and occasional
ly tears blood vessels. When a dis
location has been reduced the Joint
must be nursed until the injury ,tq
the Joint and its neighbors has been
repaired. It sometimes happens that
neglected joints are lamed for
months or years after the damaging
experience of a dislocation.
The lower jaw fits into a shallow
tars. The. socket la a shallow onvl
and the ligaments which hold it in
place are not strong. In consequence
not much force is reaulred to dislo
cate this Joint. In fact, there are
people who can throw their jaws
out of Joint by a strenuous yawn.
A joint which slips out easily gener
ally slips in easily also. Dislocation
of the Jaw joint is easily reduced and
after reduction it is found that there
has not been much tearing or over

The disposition of his editorial
brethren is to be. light and frolic
some with Colonel George Brinton
MoClellan Harvey, reputed to be the
residuary legatee of ,the embassy to
the court of St. James. As "kidding"
goes in this country, it has been deli
cately, "and inoffensively done.
Nevertheless, Colo"nel Harvey has
been extensively "kidded." He has
even been "Joshed," which is the
lowest and most elemental form of
the verb to "kid." Somf Openly pro
fess to believe the impending ap
pointment a bad one. Nobody has
had the temerity or the franknese to
say exactly what, if anything, is
wrong with Colonel Harvey. Sedu-.
lous attempt has been madb to create
the impression that President Hard
ing is sending a welter against a.
heavyweight; but that is as far aa
Colonel Harvey's detractors have
gone with it.
Probably the real objection to
Colonel Harvey is that he is an edi
tor. Editors stand none too well at
best. To those whose opinions
clashed with his own Colonel Harvey
has been a particularly offensive
member of the fraternity. A master
in the art of weaving the stinging
phrase and a past professor at the
trick of swinging .the written sopo
rific, Colonel Harvey has consistently
punched a wicked and voluble type
writer. He probably has the finest
private collection of epidermis in the
world. It includes samples, cut in
person by Colonel Harvey, from the
exterior of nearly every publio
servant who has exposed himself
during the period of Colonel Harvey's
trusteeship. Wherever Colonel Har
vey has gone politically, and he has
been a great traveler, he has left be
hind htm a long list of minor casual
ties, consisting of cuts, abrasions, su
perficial contusions and stinging
wales. The rule in this country is
that one cannot lambast a popular
hero without paying for it In a simi
lar issue of coin. '
Nevertheless and notwithstanding,
Colonel Harvey . Is sitting on the
world. He Is about to taste blood.
The rim of the cup is poised upon his
lips. When President Wilson kicked
the colonel downstairs and out into
the street he did not fall upon the
jagged stones which marked the gut
ter line. He maintained his equilib
rium, if not his dignity.
And who shall say Colonel Harvey
will not make a great ambassador?
He Is to the manner born.. He is the
intellectual type. He can pick the
proper utensil from the array of
silverware, and he will not wear a
top hat coincidental with- a sack
coat. Certainly, he strove hard and
earnestly for Mr. Harding, which is
more than can be said for those who
are now "kiddinef" him. And this
is President Harding's party. An
earnest, careful, thoughtful, man, it is
extremely unlikely that he will dele
gate authority to anyone likely to
spill the refreshments.

sequence. And yet the hands of

the heads of the bones to enlarge and
the fingers to become permanently

TO A TADPOLE.
Little tadpole eploshin' round
In the waters of the globe.
Don't you know the time has come
To put on your official coat? .
Scoffers say you're but a fish,
Tho' you're spotted anil bo-tailed,
And no scales possess: that you
Tried to be a frog but failed.
Meadowlarks sre in tbe flild,
Bluebirds carol sweet and clear,
And the cardinal from a tree
Jublilates that spring; la here;
Rohtn from the teeming earth
Pulls the worm, "like epaghst' "
And It's now high time that you
Prove you are a frog, my pet.
Now the dictionary tells I
All about your pedigree:
Noah Webster knew by heart
The record of your ancestry:
But you'll have ti do your part
If you're not a fish please prove it
If that tnil of yours misleads.
Do as frogs have done remove it.
Little tadpole, are we dense?
And are you wise like'O. K. C ?
Caring not one small two-pence
What dull critics think of thee; '
Satisfied to make a stir
In the watera ot the glebe
Till our patience stretches out
To the length of that of Job?
Round the green mnse in the globe
Blithely do I hear you swish;
Take time, dear, keep your legs
In your pockets, if you wish;
Well I know the time will come
When you'll prove you're not a Joke,
When you'll ewallow skin and tall
And announoe It with a croak.

Bringing Up Father
Of course, no Omaha house-
wife uses the same tactics as
Maggie in dealing with father, but
you exert a splendid influence for
good over him, nevertheless
One thing that you can suggest
will be a fine thing, not only for
father and yourself, but for all the
family, and that is that he open a .
savings account for you in the
Savings Department of the First.
You will keep it growing by reg
ular weekly deposits out of your ,
allowance, and soon it will grow
up and be a most useful assistant
in meeting financial needs.
