Page Two THE MONROE MONITOR -- Monroe, i Washington Friday, February 25, 1927 I THE MONROE MONITOR Consolidated with MONROE INDEPENDENT By J. J. REARDON & SON PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY Entered as second-class matter'at post-office at Monroe, Washing- ton, under the act of March 3, 1879. WHERE FOOLS RUSH IN It used to be the custom of Jour- realism that with men who served their colmtry and loved their kind to a remearkable degree, when the pall had fallen over such heroes, their names and fame were forever maled beyond even an attempt to assail them. Some little while ago, from across the Atlantic, has come the sensational news that the name and fame of Gladstone had been as- sailed by an old muckraker. A man, premier of his country for years. ]passed over the bourne from which there is no return years ago. This flzows the pretty pass that Journal- from has come to, to thus seek the de- aired notoriety, even to the cannon' mouth, and the author thereof has been compelled to retractivn and ignominious retreat and the memory of the great Premier lives unassailed. A more glaring effort of this in- excusable and damnable kind of Journalism has come to light right tere at home, in our University of Washington, students of its school of Journalism. This piece of'"intel- lectual high-binding" came out in a recent number of "Columns," the monthly classic of the Students of the University. In this number a couple of young men undertook to rite a new genesis of America's greatest -- Abraham Lincoln--and berate him into an insignificance, astounding in its audacity and damn- able in it., purpose. Dead sixty-two years, almost, with all that is hallow-. ed offered to his memory because of the wonderful record he has made in the comparatively.short life "he lived the insult which Columns offered is sufficient to have it forever banned from the confines of the campus that bears the name of Washington-- Father of Our Country and where hi own bust meets you at its main portal; and are not Washington and Lincoln in inseparable union in American annals. One the Father the other the Saviour and Emanci- Imtor of his country. To have a couple of editorial cads take on such unbridled license with a publication of such pretentions and responsibil- ity is amazing in its proportions and shows what u/abridle privileges, misguided stars of reportorial and editorial pens, kids essaying even the thought of assailing such a name is preposterous and then when we consider such fellows fed and fatten- ed at public expense and all they 1have to give in return is vomit such as this---have we not come upon dan- gerous days? It is not a very good testimonial to the school of Journal- ism of our University to have such libel as lhis committed right under jte very eye and evidently without the restraint of censorship it is sup- poseet to observe. The college is really more to blame than the guilty students who evidently lacked dis- cretion and were given latitude the' did not deserve. It is one of the most deplorable events in Journalism coming out of a University supported at public expense, that has come to public notice. Had it come from a .private school what would people say ? There is a good deal wrong with our present day journalism, much that is extremely regrettable, and that even our classic schools of such culture do not seek to use much fine discrettion and control. It is nice to know that self-made ffournalism has 1not to ask excuse for such an on- Blaught on the imperishable and it im quite evident that the untamed smart ones whose privilege it is to be highly trained--at least that is the outlook--should fall down so miser- ably in the matter of discipline anti real culture in one of the most ex- alted of professions. Such things show a deplorable abandonment to the spirit of ego, which very unfortunately has come to possess too many of those whose privilege it is to'be permitted to the forms of the great in the way of educational privileges and so prosti- tute such privilege. Our esteemed, brilliant but eratic Qenatorial friend, Thos. Heflin, is . deeply concerned over an impending war with Mexico and America, which in all likelihood, is one of the things that will never happen. Thinking of a nation like Uncle Sam's smashing in upon such a broken and defense- ls people i too preposterous to admit of any credlence. A great many are coming to the conclusion that it will be rather hard to "Keep Keel-with Kat" with all the hullaballo of war,'in Mexico, Nieara- gua and in the land of "the Chink. COUNSELS WELL In the Hearst publication of Tues- dhy, February 22, is carried' one of the finest columns from the Bris- bane pen that has appeared in many a day. It is a most timely and ex- tremely plain hint at what the coun- try is needing at this time, to the end that the public peace of mind will be preserved and the safety of the nation assured. The inordinate desire for money piling. Mr. Bris- bane points out, is at the bottom of all this and that something must be done to balance up the estrangemen that is arising with more and more evidence year by year as between capital and labor. Where the con- tinually trending situation will lead to, Mr. Brisbane indicates, when he speaks of the soviet, the bolshevist and the Russian red and what they are doing for civilization. Let's hope that our people, rich and, poor will not feed too copiously upon the seeming incongruity in the social and business relation. NO JOKER HERE Will Rogers dropped into the of- fice the other day, same old Will, wearing the same old brown suit in which he interviewed all the rulers of Europe. Will may be making money, but there is no theatrical flashiness about him, none of the! lingo of the Hollywooc[ crowd. The reason for this is, of course, that he is not a theatrical man. He is sim- ply Will Rogers. Typing his "Self- Appointed Ambassador" stuff on the train--he uses one finger of each hand to run his typewriter--sitting in private and offhand about: anything at all, or doing his two- hour stunt on the stage, he is pre- cisely the same in voice, thought, speech, gesture--siTnply andJ only Will Rogers. Somebody who knows how to do it slould classify Will with our times as the ancient satirists were classified in theirs. I saw the other day a book review in which John Jay Chapman says that Peter Finley Dunne (you know--the Dooley man) was the modern prototype of Lucian. Well, I think Will Rogers will stack as high ii not higher. Neithe," Dunne-Dooley nor Rogers is a clown. Take Ring Lardner, for example, or some other of the Sunday weekly humorists; they are forever clown- ing. But Will Rogers is serious. Did you ever see him tackle a sub- ject 'for comment that was not ser- ious. And did you ever feel that hc had failed to get at the very heart and hub of the matter and split it open with a laugh? The answer is twice i.n the negative. The fact is, Will Rogers is a philosopher; so .much of a philosopher that he has left the mechanics of lphilosophy far behind and has graduated into the higher region of humor. The so- called philosophers of our univer- Inside Information. Cooking does not destroy the valu- able mineral salts found in many fresh vetetables, but some of the minerals are dissolved in the water in which the vegetables ar cooked. This liquid should therefore be served or utilized in some way. It may be saved for soup or used in gravies or sauces. Cooing a meringue in too hot an oven makes it tough and watery. Use a slow oven with meringues. Then they will set all the way through, brown delicately on top, and remain puffy after they are taken from the oven.

Calcium is found in dried beans, cauliflower, Swiss chard, peas, turnips, carrots, parsnips, oranges and certain other fruits and vegetables. Milk used in cooking any of these foods or served with them increases the amount of calcium. Iron is supplied by fruics in general and by the green-leaf vegetables, such as lettuce and diandelion greens, and particularly by spinach. As a source of iron, spinach is in a class by itself. Egg yol k is another good source of iron. Even at ordinary temperatures gives off a very explosive vapor, he vapor from a single pint rendering the air in an ordinary- sized room explosive. Whenever it is used inducers for cleaning, it is im- portant that there be no fire in the r'oom and that the doors and windows be open so the vapor may escape, Often some cleaning agent that will not take fire can be used as satisfac- torily as gasoline When proportions are gi'ven in terms of sweet milk and baking pew- (tier, an equal quantity of sour milk may be substituted an enough soda used approximately to neutralize the acid, or a scant half teaspoon for each cup of sour milk. In the case of thin batters the soda and sour milk generally furnish enough leav- eni'ng but for thick batters or doughs baking powder is usually needed in addition. When sweet milk is to be used in place of sour, baking powder is substituted for all of the soda in the proportion of 4 teaspoons of bakiaag powder for 1 teaspoon of soda if no other acid ingredients such as molasses is used. If such an acid in- gredient is used, as in gingerbread, some soda is required. INFLUENZA Influenza has been epidemic in Eu- rope for the past month. The epi- demic is reported as severe, and pneumonia is a frequent complication The spread of influenza dependh upon two principal conditions - the presence of the infective agent and .the susceptibility of individuals. The rate of transmission dependls on the proximiCy of communities and the in- timacy of contact between individuals Influenza is, undoubtedly, spread through the secretions and discharges from the nose and mouth of persons i suffering from influenza, which gain entrance to the respiratory tract or other individuals.

Nolan, at her home there at 1:15 a. m., on the ,above given date. , Words eoulc not paint a picture that would be beautiful enough to depict the years of this life just closed. That the good aml noble acts she has done will live long in the community where she lived and died, there can be no doubt. The pang that is caused by her pass- mg is a real sincere grief to those she left and loved, but is somewhat assuaged by the full knowledge that she is gathered home to the God whom she served with an ardent zeal all the days of her life.

C--Jepan has ac- cepted the Coolidge proposal for a i supplementar Geneva conference to !negotiate a five-power treaty limiting cruisers, destroyers and submarines. The note, made public by the state department, asked that the conference approach the subject of ratios with an open mind. The president had sug- gested as a basis of negotiation a 5-5.-2 ratio between the United States, i Great Britai and Japan, similar to i the capital ship ratio of the Washing- i ton treaty. Japan's acceptance increased the hope in official quarters here that subsequent informal negotiations may lead to a three-power pact between this country, Britain and Japan. Rejection by France of the original Coolidge plan has destroyed any im- i mediate possibility of a five-power i treaty, officials believe Italy Is ex- i pected to reject the five-power plan or accept with major reservations, while Great Britain is expected to approve. In its note the Japanese government ;said *'it fully shared with the Ameri- i can government the views expressed in the (Coolidge) memorandum" and "cordially welcome the initiative tak- en 'y the American government." June 1 was suggested as the opening date of the proposed conference to permit additional Japanese delegates to arrive at Geneva from Tokio. FATE OF SHANGHAI HANGS IN BALANCE Shahghal.--The defeated troops ot Marshal Sun Chu-an-Fang, ruler of KI angsu province, and the nationalist army that forced them to retreat from the rich city of Hangchow were re- organizing to continue the struggle *.hat will determine the possession ot Shanghai, the "Paris of the orient." Forty thousand of Sun's soldiers thrust from their master's province of Chekiang, were seeking a place along the Hangchow-Shanghai railway to make a stand against 50,000 Can- tonese preparing to drive against them. Sungkiang, 28 miles from Shanghai, was believed to be the place selected by Shanghal's defenders be- cause of its strategic location on the Whangpoo river Beheading of at least 12 Chinese strike fomenters; minor disorders; stonings, and spread of the demonstra- tion to take in between 85,000 and 100,000 natives marked the second day of Shanghai's internal disturbance. "Phe strike started recently, a poli- tical movement fostered by Cantonese propagandists and aiming at the col- lapse of power of Marshal Sun Chuan- Fang, ruler of Kiangsu province, whose troops are fighting to halt the advance of Cantonese (Nationalist) armies on Shanghai. e[`1J|millMJJuun||M[D]uHCui Saturday, February 26-- * HOOT GIBSON * in "Buckaroo Kid" Comedy--" Second-Hand Excuse." |llllltlMUflfllll[]nlnllllll[]llllllll II[]lllllllllll]llllllllllll|| !
