CRIME IS UNCOMMON. - Because JenningsHenry took the life of a young lady his name is known in every nook and corner of the Inland Empire. Had this same Henry gone about his profession, served his em- ployer well and tried to raise his fam- ily correctly, his name would be un- known outside of his immediate asso- ciates. Too many are inclined to take such cases as Henry's and hold them up as a sample of the trend of American be- havior. Henry broke into the lime- light by dolng the unusual and not because he did the usual thing. P2 murder was usual and correct con- duct unusual, then the man who lives correctly would be most heralded. Most people behave properly, conse- quently most people are never men- tloned in the dailies. The dailies print the startling occurrences. They re- cord the actions that will giye readers a thrill. The common or usual hap7 penin~ they do not conslaer as news. For lnsta~nce, if we had picked up our Sunday paper and read the following article we would have thrown it down in disgust: "James Henry, a workman in town, took ~ais wife and went to church twice last Sunday. Henry lsa good citizen, he obeys all the laws and en- raise his family correctly ~' Such an article would not be news for a daily. It would be too couta~on. too usual. Too Tunny men follow that line of action. If the Palouse correspondent would send in a letter recording every ~ay happen~lngs, such as: "Smith the banker gave Mr. Jone~ an extens!cn on his note yesterday. It was really against the rules of the bank, ,but SmiVh felt that Jones ought to have chance," his letter would be thrown into the waste basket. These stories would not get to first base in the edi- torial rooms of our dailies. On the other hand, if the correspon- dent sent in an account of one ot these men committing an impropriety it would be printed and the chances are that the editor of the daily would write him a letter asking for a col- umn or two of the detailw and perhaps a special reporter would be sent out to get all the disgusting details of the occurrence. If the daily press undertook to re- cord all the good that is done in the community it would take an army to put it into print. They only attempt to record the unusual happenings. It is tha mission of the small town paper to refie~ t~he hopes and aspirations of the ordinary people of the com- munity. We should not become mo- rose because we read of crime in the dailies. The daily only records the unusual and when we read of a vrime being committed we should consider that it Is recorded because ft is un- usual. Thousands and thousands of China demands, on the ground that it it is entitled to the return of the leased territory because of its entry into the world war. The American delegation held its first session last week, effected a per- manent organization, made a general survey of data gathered for its guid- .race and discussed questions of policy. The stage has been set for the most important session of the kind in ~nodern times, and the actors are con- sidering the parts they are to play. the world,, watching these prepara- tions, is most concerned --with the moot question: What wilt have been accompl|shed toward peace and dis- armament by the time the curtain falls ?

Forest Reserve Money to Be Sepnt on Highways. If there ]s no change in certain fea- tures of the federal aid bill now in conference committee in Congress the measur will of of tren~en'dous assist- ance to the good roads movement of this state The fact that the bill would" make $1.083.000 available in support of the interstate highways of Washington is well .known.

It is only when| spokesman of the buncn declared. RELIEVING UNEMPLOYMENT. Those who are lou~Ay demanding dmt the government "do something" ~bout the unemploymen~ situation are not making a new demand. There nave always been people who turn to the government in any crisis in a fond ~ope that it will solve the problem at hand in seine paternadstlc manner or other. The chief difference in the past and today lies iu the fact that more peo- ple are taking stock ,n this theor) that the government must see that they have a Job. A few years ago ,most people held that they had to get ~ut and rustle for themselves if they ~xpected to get a job and hold it. A lot of people are finding ollt today, or are going to find out, that by depend- ing on others to get them work they are leaning on a mighty wobbly sup- port It will be noticed taa~ the famed "Mr. Zero." who has been auctioneer- ing the unemployed off the block in Boston, has been deserted by most of his followers. "We wafft work, not publicity,'7-a one of us missteps that our name ap- pears in the city papers. Dailies make a specialty of crime, sorrow and shame. It is the country paper that tells about Tom Brown's son making good or Perry Keller building a new house or Jack Storm marvestlng a good crop or that Mary Warlord sang a pretty solo at church. They have to record such instances because week after week would go by with. nothing to write about if they specialized in crime. Sometimes it is hard for the big tinily to find crime sufficient for a headliner. Crime Is not common, it "We are tired of having our pictures taken; tired of following 'Mr. Zero' around when no jobs are in prospect. We are now going out on our own to get jobs." Others might le~,rn something from the experience of these men. Success in life rarely comes to an mdividuaI from the efforts of others. That may sound bromidic, but after all there have been few new theories discov- ered that will take the pzace of the 01d-fashioned brand of common se~/se. In spite of the loud howls of the agltatm;s, we are slowly getting back is uncommon., otherwise it would not be published. glDDLE OF BIG CONFERENCES. France has completed its delegation the disarmament conference. It Will he headed by Premier Briand. with whom will be associated Former Premier Viviani, Senator Albert Sar- raut and M. Jusserand, ambassador to the United l%tates. Still there is a possibllity, accord- to the London press, that Premier George will head the British delegation. Much depends, in this connection, on t,he fate of the new ~/ Irish conference. Meantime, with the sha.dow of the , big seulons flung over the diplomatic on that basis. One of the obstacles In the path of our return is the refusal of many to use common sense and their adherence to theories that place the responsibility of their success or failure on other shoulders "than their own. The most effectua~ way In which the government can really aid in get- ting the unemployed jobs is by re- moving obstacles from the path of in- dustry, by removing itself from busi- ness as far as possible so that busl- nesff management can go ahead safely in its own well-tried path.--Wash. ington State WeekLy.

Necklem PALOUSE, WASHINGTON th'at piece of road unusually heavy construction costs were involved anti under the old law the govermnent having helped out on the grade could not spend any more money on paving. On the east side a good example of the handicap in limiting federal aid is af- forded on' the Yakfma'canyon route. As 'it stands the bill provides fed- eral id can only be extended to 7 per cent of the roads within a state and 70 per cent of the money advanced must be spent on interstate roads. This suits Washington, for this state has 40.000 miles of road, but only 3000 miles or 7 per cent are in the state highway system as laid out by .the legislature. Moot of the roads in the highway system can be interpret- ed to be parts of the interstate high- ways. so neither the.7 per cent nor the 70 per cent limitation is embar- rassing.
