Come what will, we must maintain the protective policy in this coun-

commodity exactly the same degree of protec tion, we should measure up
to that standard just as uearly as we can.
The Jazz Is No Dance Music; There Is Nothing
of Grace or Beauty in Jazz
By JUDGE ARNOLD HEAP, Chicago Morals Court.
I find this woman, a professional dancer in a cabaret, guilty of im-
proper performances and fine her $200. The abdominal muscle dancei
and the ■himrayite must go.
You can do anything while listening to jaz* music. The jazz is no
dance music. There i. no grace or beauty in jazz. You do not find the
activity, the phyaical and mental exhilaration of the dance as manifested
by our fathers and mothers, where real music was produced by which to
daI1CThis case smacks of the barbarism of the jungle. The very music
was obscene. The evil genius of this place has artfully combined the poss-
neas of primitive sensuality with the gilded refinement of modern licen-
tiousness. , , ,
This cafe was open to the public, an admission fee was charged and
a city license must have been obtained to conduct it, yet we find it run-
ning for months, catering to the worst and basest of human passions
That these things happen in the fourth largest-city in the world, in
a so-called civilized community, where decency and religion are presumed

The Insects Have Now Developed Into the Most
Powerful Rival of Man
By DR. L. O. HOWARD, Am. Asa'n Advancement of Science.
The articulates have in the course of the ages been modified and per-
fected in their structure and in their biology until their many appendage,
have become perfect tools adapted in the most complete way to the needs
of the species; until their power of existing and of multiplying enormously
under the most extraordinary variety of conditions, of subsisting success-
fully upon an extraordinary variety of food, has become so perfected and
their instincts have become so developed that the culminating type the
insects, has become the most powerful rival of the culminating vertebrate
tvpe. man. , , .. .
" Now, this is not recognized to the full by people in general-it is not
realized by the biologists themselves. We appreciate the fact that agricul-
ture suffers enormously, since insects need our farm products and compel
us to share with them. We are just beginning to appreciate that directly
and indirectly insects cause a tremendous loss of human life through the
diseases that they carry.
But apart from these two generalizations we do not realize that in-

of dipping ami quarantine regulations,
and haa refused to complete the work
of tick eradication in herds, i>n premi-
um and in localities held under local
quarantine at the time the federal
quarantine was revoked In December.
Iteo. For this reason It has heen nec-
essary to requarnntlne Taylor eounty.
There la In effect In Georgia a state
regulation which provides that all cat
He going through the dipping vnt shall
he marked with paint at each dipping.
This regulation lias heen of great as
ststance In facilitating tick-eradication
work, ltange riders, whose duty It Is
to pick up any entile not marked with
paint, are employed In eaeh county
Undipped cattle are taken to the dip-
ping vnt and dipped at the expense of
the owner, or if the owner cannot be
found, they are treated as strays and
gold for the expenses Incurred In their
gathering and dipping. To this sys-
tem, the Department of Agriculture at-
tributes the satisfactory results In rid
ding the slate of ticks. In fact, it is
said there are fewer undipped cattle
in Georgia, In counties In which tlik
eradication Is being earrled on, than
In any other state.
The Importance of freeing the South
of ticks is emphasised by the Increase
in the number of markets which are
being closed to tlck.v cattle. Follow-
ing a resolution recently passed by the
Maryland state hoard of agriculture,
prohibiting the shipment of tlcky cat

ing he explained that It was to be a

only the services of all Americans In
the World war. but perpetuating the
memory of George Washington, and
carrying out the educational features
suggested In his will. The President's
solicitation of state co-operation In the
erection of this national monument has
lent a nation-wide Interest to a project
begun many years ago by the George
Washington Memorial association.
Address by President
In connection with the laying of the
cornerstone of the George Washington
Victory Memorial, as It is called, on
November 14. In the presence of high
atlves and the heads of the anuy sni
navy, President Harding s*ld: "We ar
come to pay tribute to the foresight
which first encouraged and endowed
the InstitutionJj^re established—an In-
stitution wtiicn Is to be alike a monu-
ment to those who sacrificed in a uobl
cause and a beacon to shed afar the
light of useful knowledge and grateful
understanding among iucu."
The parposte of the 'memorial wa
also announced as a gathering place
for American*, where American mind#
could meet"W fruitful exchanges. Thua,
as the President suggested, this Instls
tutlon of the national capital may b^
come, through Its varied uses, a veri-
table "university of American cltlien-
shlp." It will fill a long-felt want, for-
uuhapplly, though the city of Washing-
ton has become an International meet-
ing place, It is not yet equipped with
suitable assembly rooms.
When completed the building will
house the headquarters of national,
military and patriotic organizations,
while spacious rooms will be set apart
for the exclusive use of the states and
territories. Organizations may, upon
request and without charge, use the
auditorium nnd assembly rooms for
meetings and conventions.
The building, which originally was
known as "the George Washington
Memorial," but later also designated
as the Victory Memorial, was author-
ized by an act of ^ngress In ll 13 to
be erected by the George Washington
Memorial association, on the site of
the old Pennsylvania station In the
Mall, and tbe spot where Garfield fell.
It Is to be between Sixth and Seventh
streets, N. W., on a line with the New
National Museum hulldlng. The same
act donated the land designated and
provided that the structure be admin-
istered by the regents of the Smith-
sonian institution, who control tht
Four-Story Colonial Design.
The design of the white stone struc-
ture depicts a fine Colonial building,
with a pillared front facing the south,
and a squure ground plan. From tha
broad green Mall, which bisects Wash-
ington, long, low steps lead through
the facade of majestic columns to an
Imposing lobby, decorated with his-
torical mural paintings. The memo-
rial Is to be of four stories In height,
surmounted by a low dome which
crowns a huge central auditorium.
The main feature of the edifice will
be this national audttorlum, ample to
seat ten thousand people. The ground
floor of the hall Is In the form of a
great ellipse. Its long axis running
north and south. Here there will be
seats for six thousand people, while
above an encircling balcony will ac-
commodate several thousand more.
There will be 38.000 square feet of
space In the main floor, which will con-
tain a number of smaller halls and re-
ception rooms, a spacious stage and a
George Washington museum, besides
the assembly hnll.
Within the auditorium may be held
future Inaugural receptions, national
and international conventions, confer-
ences nnd free public concerts. Part
of the funds now being raised provide
for the purchase of a fine organ and
an endowment to pay a musician of
national reputation is planned.
Far above the mummoth assembly
hall will stretch an acoustical dome
three times the diameter of St. Peter's
58 Rooms for States.
Besides the oval balcony a large
banquet hall Is provided In the second
floor, seating six hundred nnd suitable
for dlnuers of national Importance.
There also will be rooms on the floor
for the permanent hendquarters of mil-
itary, patriotic societies and veterans'
associations. On the third floor 53
rooms are designated for the use of
states and territorial possessions. The
fourth floor is arranged for additional
offices for the use of various societies
whose objects are to promote the wel-
fare of the country or are of educa-
It Is planned thnt one room of the
building be devoted to the use of vet-
erans of the World war. It will be en-
dowed and provision will be made for
