HARDING. “AS FRIEND.” HOPED TO GO ABROAD Planned “Neighborly” Tour of Europe Had He Been Re-Elected to Presi dency. ... 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.

Charlotte Observer. 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. CHICKEN FEED, COW FEED, HOG FEED.

C I 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 tions. 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.” Judge Thomas capie here recently to present his findings to officers of the National Reform Association at the Or ganization's International Conference on Christian Citizenship. Seventeen states in the Union fix no marriage age, he pointed out in *oom- Builders Hardware SERVICE? Yes, we can give you service and with it experience.

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 ■bringing about reform. “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 ting as we do into the other big busi nesses of our day, and in bringing to bear upon marriage the advanced ideas of science, religion and law, so that we shall he able to offer to young men and women a sensible presentation of the subject that will convince them of the necessity of permanent family rela tions and assure them of the happiness to he found in a wholesome, family life. “Unification of marriage' and divorce ELKS NOTICE.

No other make of car ever built, by anyone, at any price, represents so great a dollar-for-dollar value as the Light-Six Touring Car. The sav ings resulting from large volume, complete manufacture and the fact that Studebaker’s overhead is shared by three distinct models make pos sible its low price and high value. The Light-Six upholds Stude baker’s 71-year reputation for honest value. PAGE THREE
