Failure of government agencies to
co-operate in prosecution of the war
was laid to President Wilson by Sen Senator
ator Senator Jones of Washington, in a
speech in the Senate Wednesday in
which he charged that the president
had shown no disposition to seek the
advice of Congress on the great prob problems
lems problems confronting the nation. Perhaps
Senator Jones is 'partly right. But
Mr. Wilson's idea of Congress seems
to be largely shared by the people,
and the people themselves are mostly
to blame, because they have been too
much given to electing pork slicers
rather than statesmen to Congress.
Mr. Wilson is an honest man, a
statesman of the highest degree, and
is well qualified to advise what the
nations and peoples of the world
should do. But this very greatness of
his makes him impatient of details,
consequently in the smaller affairs of
government, he is not as practical as
a -smaller man would be. This would
be all to the good if he would always
appoint practical men to look after
the lesser affairs. But in many, if not
most, of his appointments, he picks
out men of his own type.
It is reported that Lieut. Robert
Allen Burford, who has 'been serving

transferred to a destroyer. Such a
transfer would decrease his comfort,
but add to his honor and safety. Ger German

more than anything else, and service
aboard them is desired by all the men
in the navy, but they are anything in
the world but ocean liners in comfort.

Marguerite Clark at the Temple
Marguerite Clark, the famous
Paramount star will be seen at the
Temple today in "Bab's Burglar," one
of the sub-act stories by Mary Rob Roberts
erts Roberts Reinhardt in the Saturday Even Evening
ing Evening Post. This picture was directed
by J. Searle Dawley who directed
"The Seven Swans," and Richard
Barthelmess, who was the hero-prince
in The Seven Swans, is the leading
man in "Bab's Burglar."
This story was read by thousands
all over the country, and Miss Clark
is said to be the perfect embodiment
of "Bab," the most delightful of
sub-debs, as she calls herself. The
younger sister of an attractive girl of
twenty-four, and even more -romantic
than the average run of boarding boarding-school
school boarding-school girls, Bab's efforts to marry off
her older sister are screamingly fun
ny and her attempts to dignify the
species of puppy-love through which
she is passing, a farce.
Among those in the excellent cast
are Marguerite Clark, Leone Mor
gan, Richard Barthelmess, Frank
Losee, Gabriel O'Madigan, Helen
Green, .William Hinckley and Guy
