C.~Full title to "all the rights, privileges, indemnities, re- parations or advantages" specified for the United States under tile unrati- fied treaty of Versailles is reaffi,rmed in the separate treaty with Germany signed at Berlin. Both by blanket declaration and specific enumeration the treaty reeng- nizes the elahn of the American ~ov ernment to these benefits and al the same time disavows on the parl of the United States any responsibility for provisimts of the leaglle of tin- lions covenant, the Shantung settle- ment or the political realignments of Europe. There was every indication that ef- forts would be made by the adminis- tration to secure senate ratification as soon as possible after congress re- assembles late in October. Such com- mercial and supplemental treaties as may be found necessary then can be negotiated through the ordinary diplo- matic channels. Intimations were given in high of- ficial quarters that withdrawal of the Ameriean troops from the Rhine will bo seriously considered as soon as the peace treaty has been ratified by the senate and the German reichstag. r0 DISPOSE OF LIQUORS Accruing Storage Charges Cause of prohibition Commissioner's Request. Washington, D. C.--Immediate dis- position of liquors seized under the na- tional prohibition act, owing to stor- age charges, which are accruing, was ordered by prohibition Commissioner Haynes. instructions were sent to prohibition directors and revenue collectors to re~ quest the dis.trict attorneys to peti- tion the courts for disposition orders for all seized liquors, automobiles, boats or other vehicles seized. Liquor, such as "moonshine," adul- terated and low-proof liquor, having aO commercial value, should be de- stroyed, Mr. Haynes said. while the higher proof and unadulterated liquors should be diverted to commercial but non-beverage use. Incomplete reports from the various districts, Mr. Haynes said, estimated total value of good liquors hehl by the government at about $1,000.000. Legion Opposes Chinese For Hawaii. Washington, D. C.--The American Legion is opposed to permitting Hawaiian planters to bring Chinese coolies to those islands to work on their plantations, as proposed in a resolution pending before congress, Lomuel Belles, national adjutant of the legion, informed Chairman John- son of the house immigration com- mittee in a letter made public by the American Federation of Labor.

Even one of the most plausible statements, namely, that a illgh fore- head is a sign of inlelllgenee, has been definitely ~,,sapproved by the pains- taking studies of Karl Pearson. He demonstrated experimentally that the oolor of the hair, or Its straightness ,,r curliness, shows one's intelligence I~elter than does a high forebead, al- though these are not offered either as ruled indices. In other words, there hns been found no definlte relationship hctween any slngle pecullarlty of ttle shape of the head and any trait of churaeter, tlenry Foster Adams writes ill Scribner's. For many years an Italian criminol- o~ist. Lombros, o, made a study of crim- inal structural peculiarities and their relatlonship io erhne.

OWE EXPRESSION TO INDIANS To the Cuatom of "Potlatch" May Bs Traced the Term Often Heard, "indian GiverY The expression, "Indian giver," Is used in allusion to the fact that at. lndlan expecr~ an equivalent for a gift, or its return. The term "Indian giver" probably originated from the Indian custom of potlateh, an American Indian word signifying a gift, whici~ is used among the American Indians of the northwest coast. It also signi- fies a feast in which a rich person gives away the most of his goods to members of his tribe, as the evidence of his greatness, a custom among In- dians from Puget sound to south Alas- ka. Among these Indians giving Is regarded as a kind of ordeal and the recipient is expected to respond with Interest. Among the Kawakiuti he must pay it back at the rate of 100 per cent. The unit Is the blanket, and this custom is helpful to the youn~ warriors, who borrow and bestaw ! blankets on their tribe, and as the return with some tribes Is three blank~ ets to one, they are thus enabled to furnish themselves with blankets af- ter paying back the lender wlth in- terest.
