The decision of Judge Mayer of

the Eusitania and the American pas

fired by agents of the German Gov
ernment: that no munitions were
carried aboard the ship, to afford
the slightest color of justification for
a defiance of international law.
Seeing that the Lusitania crime
more than any other single act fore
ed the United States into the war.
Judge Mayer travels pretty safo
ground in his conclusions. His
view that the injured American liti
gants should find their remedy at
Berlin is. we believe, in strict con

and hi fact certain proceedings with
a view to make possible the speed-

The country is to have a wartime
Christmas this year. Beyond doubt
there will be a hearty response to
the appeal of the Council of Na
tional Defence that the holiday shall
not be allowed to interfere with the
winning of the war. The people
are asked to give only useful things.
to make their purchases and ship
ments weeks or even months ahead,
to carry home, so far as practicable.
all their packages.
In this way it is hoped that there
may be an appreciable saving in la
bor, in 'material and in transporta
tion. The manufacturers and retail
ers are co-operating loyally with the
movement. Many ot" the stores have
agreed not to increase their work
ing forces during the holiday sea
son and to do their utmost to spread
the purchases over several months.
Fortunately there is no request for
the curtailment of simple toys, for

are no longer made in Germany
but by our own manufacturers.
The wonderful response of the
people throughout the land to the
plet for Sunday gasoline conserva;
tion fore-shadows their attitude tc
this new request. We may be sure
that this year there will be nc
eleventh hour crush in the stores,
no clogging of the parcel post and
express, no exchange of useless gifts.
We hear much about the public. It
is seldom praised; often it is berat
ed. The public will stand for any
thing, we are told. The public like-
to be duped, said P. T. P.arnum
years ago in explanation of hi?
success as a showman. The public
be damned, said a corporation head
a generation ago. Society never ad
vances, declare the philosopher Em
erson. The public is a huge beast,
someone else has said.
Almost anybody who talks alxjtit
the public or matters pertaining to
the public will reiterate such opin
ions today. And no offense is tak
en; no indignation meetings ' are
held and no resolutions drawn up
in condemnation of such insulting
language. Apparently nobody feelf

our search.
But is not the public anybody but
you and me. or anybody except the
persons talking about it There
fore, the public can never be found,
though one should inquire all his
days. Always the thing is farther
on. like the rainbow's end.
So, there is little use relying on
the public to do anything. , to take
the initiative, to start something, to
rise up in rebellion against wrong,
oppression, outrage, injustice.
There has been much talk about
rebellions, revolutions, when pub
lic indignation has reached the
boiling point; but there never wa?
and likely never will be a public up-
rising of any kind without a lead
er, without some individual work
ing alone or in co-operation with a
very few other individuals to organ
ize "public sent?ment," to give it
form and substance, "a local habita
tion and a name."
Therefore, all the abuse that has
ever been heaped upon the public
might be gathered into one mass and
once more hurled at the thing's head
and nothing would ever be heard of
it and nobody hurt.
What recourse can be had, then
when the people suffer, when a com
munity, a selfish and soulless cor
porations or what not? None at all
by damning the public.
It all comes back to you and me
who started the discussion. You are
a vital part cf the public; I am. You
owe it to yourself and the cause of
justice, as do I, to wait not a m
ment in doing something, in going

own individual responsibility and
not exhaust our indignation on an

A War Savings Stamp Is as Secure
as a National Bank Note
Both are backed by the United States
Government. About the only difference is that
the stamps pay you 4 per cent interest com
pounded quarterly on January 1st, 1923.
If you are pressed for money at any
time, you can cash a War Savings Stamp for
ita current value at any money order postoffice
on ten day's notice.
War Savings Stamps are convenient and
easy investments, no "red tape" and are backed
by the entire resources of the people of the
United States.
Every Stamp you buy helps to keep the
Germans out of your own home. Every Stamp
you buy brings you nearer to financial freedom.
