The King's speech read recently
at the opening of parliament in
Great Britain was notable for its
conservatism considering that it
was the first public expression of
the new labor government, which
is supposedly liberal. The evacu-
ation of the Rhineland by all Brit-
ish troops was said to be contem-
plated. This will leave France in
the rather embarrassing position
of being the only nation left that
maintains a belligerent attitude to-
ward Germany.
For the rest, foreign policy was
left rather bleakly in the shadow.
The reparations report from, Paris
was said to be "under considera-
tion"; and disarmament was dis-
missed with a few sentences to the
effect that "conversations have
commenced." What all this means
is that the Labor administration
is proceeding much more slowly
and cautiously; than was anticipat-
ed. It is giving the impression of
a Democratic machine that sud-
denly finds itself in power and im-
mediately becomes conservative.
National questions were given
more attention in the speech, how-
ever. An extensive program for
unemployment was outlined includ-
ing "improvement of transport,
stimulation of the depressed ex-
port trade, and economic develop-'
ment of overseas industries." A
commission for the investigation of
legislation relating to the sale and
supply of intoxicating liquor was

N summer, the heat of an ordinary oven
makes the kitchen almost unbearable. Eec-
tric ovens are liberally insulated, and the in-
crease in kitchen temperature when the oven
is in use is hardly noticeable. The heat is kept
inside where it is needed -one of the several
reasons why electric cooking is efficient.
You can enjoy electric cooking in your kitchen now. Con-
venient time payments and a liberal allowance for your
present cooking equipment make it unusually easy for
you to own a modern electric range. Come in
and inspect the many attractive models.
