HARDING. “AS FRIEND.”
HOPED TO GO ABROAD
Planned “Neighborly” Tour of Europe
Had He Been Re-Elected to Presi
New York Times. ”* 11
The untimely death of President
Harding defeated his fixed purpose to
visit the principal nations of Europe av
the humble apostle of a “new politics”
of friendliness, according to John A.
Stewart, chairman of the Jioard of Gov
ernors of the Sulgrave Institution.
Mr. Stewart, wh® Was a confidant of
the late President, said here yesterday
that just tis Mr. Harding's journey to
Canada was the first venture of an
American President on foreign soil on
a mission of sheer friendliness, so he
had decided to cr ( oss the seas with no
other purpose than to bring good under
standing through the exemplification of
good-will. The journey, Mr. Stewart
added, was to have been undertaken
only in case Mr. Harding had been re
elected President of the United Slates.
It was in disclosing the nature of a
three-hour talk he had .with Mr. Hard
ing in Washington just before the Presi
dent started on his ill-fated journey
that Mr. Stewart pictured him ag a
peace-loving individual, conscious of his
own limitations and determined to 'per
sist in his policy of kindliness, even
though much of the nation mistook It
for amiable weakness and relegated him
to private life in Vonsequence.

. The Succession.
The death of President Harding and
drafting of Vice President Coolidge for
the vacant Executive chair, brings up
the usual discussion as to tvhat might
happen in case Mr. Coolidge should be
taken off. Who would become Presi
dent? In this instance, it would be
Secretary of State Hughes, for the Con
stitution provides that the Secretary of
State should be first in line of succession.
If Mr. Hughes should be called and
should be removed by ■ death or any
other l causes the Secretary of the Treas
ury would become President. After
him _would come the Secretary of War,
the attorney General, the Postmaster
General, and the Secretary of the Navy.
The Secretary of the Interior would ex
haust the imssibilities. The framers of
the Constitution thought that was going
far enough, and, indeed, there is small
possibility of the country ever under
going circumstances that would exjiaust
the machinery for creation of a Presi
dent. Mr. Coolidge was officially func
tioning as President of the Senate. The
vacated place is to be filled by a Presi
dent pro tem, elected by the Senate.

SAYS DIVORCE HABIT GRAVELY
MENACES OUR NATIONAL LIFE
Divorces in America Granted at Rate of
One Every Four Minute*. >
Winona Lake, Ind., Aug. 8. —Divorces
are granted in America at the rate of
ope *yery four minutes throughout the
year, and are more numerous here an
nually in proportion to total population
thon in any other country which re
cords marriage statistics. The annual
total of decrees for the 48 states is in
the neighborhood of 160,000 and is in
creasing three times ns fjst ns the popu
lation. Such are the conclusions of
Judge W. H. Thomas, of Santa Ana,
California, former associate justice of
the California District Court of Ap
peals, drawn .from a world survey of
marriage and divorce figures in prepara
tion for an American campaign for a
national code . governing marital rela
Judge Thomas’ survey included 54
countries, and the snmmary of his
study, made public here, reaches back
into the domestic relations of ancient
Rome, Greece, ‘and Babylon. In his
conclusions is the suggestion that our
national life is seriously threatened by
the, present status of our family rela
tionships. Mncli of our trouble, he be
lieves. is chargeable to the chaotic state
of our marriage laws, and his recom
mendation is a uniform law, applicable
to all American territory, based on wis
dom and experience.
"In contrast With our records, one di
vorce for every nine marriages,” Judge
Thomas said, “those of France and Ger
many, our closest competitors, dwindle
into insignificance. Wp have only one
rival, Japan. Until recently that na
tion has been grinding out divorces
faster than our own* Now. however,
the United State Census Bureau dis
closes u rapidly mounting table of di
vorce which far outstrips the ratio of
increase in population. Our rate of in
crease in divorces between 187 ft amj
lftl7, was for the entire country, exactly
4ftft per cent." In 187 ft. he said, we
had 28 divorces for every lftft.Oftft of
population: in lftlC the figure was 112
for each lftft.Oftft.
“Our country heads the list among
the nations of the world in this down
ward procession. 'ln 1890 there were
33.107 divorces: in lftlti there were
112.000. In Canada' in the whole yetfr
of 1013 there were 5!) divoiVes.”

nine of these states —Florida. Maine,
Maryland, Massachusetts. Missouri,'
Pennsylvania. Rhode Island, Tennes
see. and Vermont, the common law
ages of 12 for girls, and 14 for boys
have been formally recognized by the
courts. In 19 states there is no law
restraining feeble minded persons from
marrying, and only three states forbid
miscegentie unions, or marriages be
tween people of different races.
There are now in the United States ,
more,'than 12.(100 mairied girls under
15 years of age. Appioximntel? 100.000
girls 17 years or younger are married.
“The need of a uniform divorce law
is apparent," Judge Thomas declares.
“Disregard for the sanctity of marriage,
over-emphasis of sex. under-emphasis of
domestic responsibilities, lnek of uni
formity in the law were among the chief
contributing causes that led to the down
fall of Rome, of Greeee, of Babylon.
We eannot allow the rate of divorce in
the United State to continue at three
times the rate of population increase.
“No logical and sound-thinking per
son any longer denies that, in certain
circumstances, men anil women Who can
not live harmoniously together, should
be allowed to reconstruct their happi
ness. No ope now argues against the
necessity for marriage laws which wilf
make it impossible for the immature
[ and unfit to marry and reproduce.
“Everyone is satisfied that these laws
must be uniform. Hence the tii'lle for
action has come. And because men
have dilly-dallied about it. and because,
too, the integrity of the family is wo
man's quest, upon the women of the
country must bo ldid the business of

“But legislation will not usher in an
era of wisely planned marriages. The
real hope of the world lies in. putting
as much painstaking and progressive
thought into the great business of mat

nesses of our day, and in bringing to
bear upon marriage the advanced ideas
of science, religion and law, so that we
