NO STYLE, NO CLASS,
At a time when people are stirred
up over vast, world-shaking issues,
it is somehow comforting to read
about the strike of the seamen on
the French liner Champlain.
These sturdy mariners rose up in
protest—or possibly, sat down—at Le
Havre, because their employers had
given them the wrong kind of uni-
forms. Their working clothes, they
said, were the wrong shade of blue
and did not have stars on the sleev-
es. Because this was so they held up
the vessel's scheduled sailing.
Now there have been strikes, dis-
putes, squabbles and set-tos enough,
in recent years, Heaven knows;
some of these have involved sea-
men, protesting against the sailor's
age-old lot of cnamiped quarters,
hard work and bad food. But this
is something different.
Here we get no hackneyed com-
plaint of moldy salt beef, stuffy
fo’c’sles or brutal first mates; no re-
cital of the dangers of gale, reef
and shipwreck. Instead, it is some-
thing much simpler. The sailor’s in-
alienable right to look picturesque
has been infringed. Hence: trouble.
Perhaps all of this isn’t quite as
mirthful as it may seem. For there
are plenty of callings on this earth
in which .that light to look romant-
ic and colorful is one of the princi-
Who can doubt that the cowboy
sticks to his job at least partly be-
cause of the figure which it permits
him to cut? He may discard his
flaring chaips for dingy overalls, he
many leave his six-gun to rust on
a shelf in the bunk house, he may
even give up the traditional ban-
dana at the throat; nevertheless, he
remains a person of infinite color
end appeal, and he knows it—and
that very fact has undoubtedly
saved ranch bosses many a dollar

THE GREAT SALT LAKE, IN UTAH.
GREAT SALT LAKE, because it has no outlet, loses its water
only by evaporation, which leaves the salt behind. With a 28 per
cent salt content, bathers find it impossible to sink, but so strong
is the saline solution a novice might easily swallow enough water
to cause strangulation. ^

Perhaps Robert Burns was only
partly right; -perhaps we do have a
good share of that faculty of seeing
ourselves as others see us.
We may get the picture out of
focus pretty often, tout we do re-

in other people’s eyes, and it means
a lot to us.
Persuade a man that he looks like
a fine fellow and a gay adventurer
and he will take on almost any job
and put up with almost anything.
A blue uniform and stars on the
sleeve can make up for a lot.

It acted after Barkley had report-
ed President Roosevelt opposed the
restriction. Barkley said, however,
that Mr. Roosevelt would allot no
PWA funds for utility construction
until municipalities Iliad “in good
faith’’ made a reasonable offer to
buy out existing plants.
The chamber also overrode rec
ommendations of its appropriations
committee and voted an appropria-
tion of $965,000,000 for the PWA.
While announcing the president’s
opposition to the proposed restric-
tio, Barkley tenybered it with a
statement that Mr. Rooesvelt would
not allot funds for utility construc-
tion until municipalities had made
“reasonable” offers in “good faith”
to buy existing private plants.
Restriction Voted Down
The proposed restriction was rec-
ommended by the appropriations
committee as an amendment to the
administration’s spending - lending
bill. Prior to the vote which killed
the proposal, the senajte rejected,
