Washington, D. C.--Great Britain 1Mrs indorsed without reservation the "5-5-3" ratio proposed in the American naval plan, it was ]earned on highest authority. %Vhile accepting the plan as a whole only in principle, because of their deeire to put forward pro- pearl modification of the submariue and replacement features, the British delegation ia said to have approved the suggested relative capital ship strength for Great Britain, the United States and Japan without equivoca- tion. Adherence of the British represen- tatives to the capital ship ratio be- came known as an aftermath of the conference between Secretary Hughes, Mr. Balfour and Admiral Kate. at which the naval question was can- tossed, |n the light of Japanese reser- vationp. The American delegation stands rea4y to dispute stubhornly any ma- terial change from the ratio s~t forth in the American. pla~. That ratio. it was emphasized by highest author- ities, reflects existing proportional strength and so cannot be altered without upsetting a fundamental prln- oiple of the whole plan. In effect, the American figures would give Japan six fighting ships tO every ten owned by the United 8tales and every ten owned by Great Britain. The "Japanese have hinted, but never formally announced, that they want seven to ten. Monday the conference took up land armaments. At an open session, Pre- mier Briand presented considerations behind France's present enormous army outlay.

The manifesto also called for non- renewal of the alliance between Great Britain and Japan.

Mlnuclus Felix and other ancient writers allude to a game of scalipg oyster shells or stones on the water. If the stone emerged once it was said to be a "duck." England adol)ted the game and gave the phrase its present-day meaning. Just when it was first applled is not known. But it is well u~ed in l-[emT Peacham's book. "The Worth of a Penny," published in LOndOn in 1647: "I remember in Queen Elizabelh's time a wealthy citizen of London left his son a mighty estate in nmney, wlm, imagining he should never be able to spend It, would usually make ducks and drakes In the Thames river, with shilling pieces as boys are wont to do with titles and oyster shells. And. in the end he grew to such extreme' want that he was fain to I~g or bor- row a sixpence, having re,any times no more shoes tilan feet and some- times ha~ing more feet than shoe.s." "Running the Gauntlet." The custom ol' punishing a culprit by forcing hlm t~* "l'mi the gam]tlet" practiced in the ~venteenth century, Is said to have originated during the "Thirty Years' war" (1618-48) and to have been adopted by European armies as a mode of punishment. The culprit was stripped to the waist and then ()bilKed fo rlln repeatedly between two lines of soldiers facing one another. each of wbonl struck ar him with a sbnrt stick ,)r switch. The word "~'antlet,'" a~ here used. has not the meaning usnully giveo It--ilmt of fin Iron glove--hut ls simply a eorruptl,n of gantlope or gatlooe, and iu derived from t]~e Swedish gatiop, meaning "running down a hlne." Some etymolo- gists, however, demve the word from !be (;(,)'man gassenhlufen, which means "rn)|ning the hlne.'" and others from (he Dqtch gazlgloopen, having the same meaning.

In England. as in the United States, the subject of preserving the purity of the English language from the effects of slang, l(~ss of grammatical distinc- lions, etc., has recently attracted much attention. One of the results of the movement in England is the formation of the Society for Pure English. The society was founded in 1913, but was compelled by the war to postpone its activities. The reason for the exist- ence of the society is given as "the duty of English-speaking peoples to make their lang~mge adequate and efficient, and worthy of its increasing and world-wlde use. Its puz2aose is t~ further the best interest of the language by the promulgation of sound knowledge." It is assei'ted that the Society for Pure EngLish does not In. tend to dogmatize but to open an in- formal democratic court in which all questions may be argued on full ln. for~ation.--Columbus Dispatch Minnesota Federal Judge Is Fined.
