Senate Now Complains d te House
as Extravagant.
Washington. The g-.ivc raiment,
through its authorized representatives,
has expressed the hope Out every
soldier and sailor will receive n Christ
mas parcel. For that reason prelim
inary steps have been taken to secure
for each of the soldiers and sailors
something from home at C--:?;mv.s. In
order that everybody may be served,
the precaution has been taken ihnt
only one parcel of a standard size and
weight shall be sent. For the army the
size is "! by 4 by 0 inches, nor. to ex
ceed three pounds in weight, while
sailors may be sent boxes 7re!shi:.-r .Iff
pounds or less. Only one pdfefige of
that character can be received fcv each
soldier and sailor, and t-o It Is impor
tant that the friends of each id- to It
that no attempt is made at duplication,
but rather that men who might not
get anything shall be cared for.
We are all very proud of our soldiers
and sailors who ore fighting across the
water and it is expected that their
relatives in this country will take c:uc
of thin in the matter of a Christina?
box.' It is to be feared that some ol
these fighting men will be neglected,
but in all probability there will be
many duplicate packages sent and It
may be that the authorities will take
it upon themselves to see that neg
lected men are supplied out of the sur
plus. There is not the least doubt in
the world that these Christmas boxes
w ill !e highly appreciated by our .sol
diers and sailors.
Additional information concerning
the shipment of such packages can be
obtained sit any post office in the country-Turning
the clock ahead seems tc
have worked very satisfactorily, foi
there is not the slightest opposition tr
making the Calder law a permanent
fixture, or at least until after the close
I 01 tne war. ine iaiuer law as 11
stands now provides that during the
sunnnT months, or until October 27
thxdock should be set ahead fine hour.
Now come the men who are dealing
with war industries, and particularl.v
the conservation of everything that
will help win the war, and say that the
law should be continued in order tc
save daylight in the winter as well nf
in the summer. Senator Calder has
not been long in the senate, but he
seems to have gained quite a wide rep
utation by introducing the bill and
pushing it through, which has made
this vital change in the affairs of the
The time was when the senate wn?
called the extravagant body, and there
were bitter complaints in the bouse ol
representatives over the manner in
which appropriations were increased
That policy seems to have been re
versed, particularly upon anything like
an agricultural appropriation bill. Sen
ator Kenyon of Iowa was one of the
conferees upon the emergency appro
priation bill, but he would not sign the
conference report because the house
w ould not agree to .have a number ol
items left out of the bill. On this sub
ject Senator Kenyon "said : "The first
provision, where the item of $105,00C
for production of beef cattle was
stricken out, has come back in the bill
and where these few economies crept - J
in the senate and some of us had hoped
that we might hold them in confer
ence, practically all are eliminated, and
the appropriations come back, cottage
cheese and all, which item was re
stored after many tears shed by the
conferees over the cottage cheese situ
ation. It simply illustrates that it is
impossible to cut dow n appropriations."
Naturally considerable Indignation
was aroused on the part of Minnesota
and North Dakota men when Congress
man Stafford of Wisconsin asserted
that the Red River of the North was
not a navigable stream. They were in
sulted, for the navigation of that
stream, which runs north and finally
through various channels reaches the
Arctic sea, is bound up in the history
of the Northwest and Its development.
For many years steamboat navigation
on the Red River of the North was the
only rival of the famous Red river
enrts in the way of transportation fa
cilities between the headwaters of the
Mississippi and Hudson bay. It 13 not
surprising that Stafford should occa
sionally make mistakes, for be Is so
frequently in evidence during the pro
ceedings iu the house.
The several flare-ups iu regard to
the condition of our airplanes subsided
as do all such things, while those in
charge have corrected the mistakes of
the past and are doing great work In
makiug the air service a success along
with other war achievements. The pre
diction is now made that America will
soon be first in aviation. If that hap-'
pens nobody will care very much what j
the Hughes report wiU bring forth or
what the senate reported Bom aU
weeks ago.

Cooperation is the Keynote.
The seven different, organizations
now united in this one campaign,
all of which are under the direc

have been working together in har
mony and complete cooperation since
their organization and approval by
the War and Navy Departments.
In those camps or cunt on men Is
where the Young Men's Christian
Association huts were the first to
be erected, these huts have been
opened for the other organizations
to use as necessity arose. In many
of the Y. M. C. A. huts masses were
held by Catholic priests from the
churches of neighboring cities or by
the chaplains connected with var
ious regiments as soon as the build
ings were opened and ready for use.
In the same way these same huts
have been used by the Jewish Wel
fare workers aTd services have been
conducted by the rabbi's of the neigh
boring cities on Fridays, or at any
time when request has been made.
Similarly the American Library
Association has made use of the
buildings of both the Young Men's
Christian Association and the
Knights of Columbus, placing there
the books which had been donated
to the Library Association for cir
