The only reason the Germans

The new office of undersecretary

The Hermans continue to repeat
that in sicnir.g the peace treaty
they are yielding only to force. Cre
tainly, that is understood and ad
mitted, and although the Germans
are saying less about a further
point, it is also well understood that
their performance of the obligations
thus accepted will be for the same
In the old days when a parly of
tourists or a band of gypsies went
through town it was easy enough
for the local reporters to stop the
procession and get. the news. But
a flock of airplanes went over Kni
poria. Kansas, the other day, and
all the news hustlers could do was
to stand on the street with their
hands in their pockets and wonder
where the fliers were, going.
A long step in advance will have
been wrought ere the summer has
waned in the matter of the trans
continental travel and transporta
tion. Not that long distance tattl
ing will be done by trucks, except
in specific cases, such as the demon
stration which the government ex
pects to make during the coining
month, where they will send a
truck train from Washington. D. O.
to San Francisco. But a demonstra
tion will have been made as to the
practicability of the use of the truck
for actual business in competition
with the railways.
The organization of what was
formerly denominated 'Domestic
Service and the giving of a new
appellation, of "Assistant House
keepers." is working a wonderful
change in the matter of service for
the home. The hours are now plac
ed at eight, the tame as that of oth
er artisans, and other essentials
to the service, and what goes with
it have been arranged, such days
off. and the use of a key to the front
door, so marked had been the de
parture from the old order, that a
new manner of regulating the house

Some of the press reports say it
was a jaybird the Indiana preacher
paused in his sermon to kill, while
others say it was a sparrow. The
moral aspect of the whole controver

clicumstance. Which was it a jay
bird or a sparrow?
Where, oh. where is the old time
merchant who used to send the
children a poke of candy every time

eggs to the store to exchange for

Most small towns nowadays cater
to the country trade by parking
motor cars in the middle of the
street, leaving the curb free for the
farmers to drive up in front of the
stores. Some of them even go
farther In their efforts to leave the
gutters clear, and park their chew
ing gum wads on the sidewalks.

We see no objection to the anti
prohibitionists request that all
those who oppose prohibition In this
country wear a daisy on June 20.
The daisy is a nice flower for any
one to wear, and so far as this de

may continue to wear the daisy for
the rest of the summer, even after
prohibition goes into effect, if it
offers them any solace.
NECESSITY OF SUNDAY PAPERS.
The treaty has been made , and
with the foundation!, wrecks' upon
which to build with material, that
is as wavering as the shifting sands,
the undependable nations who con
sider a treaty a scrap of paper, and
are perhaps signing as such. Still
the flat iron building was the re
sult of the rope of sands, but rein
forced with the steel, and the ce
ment which made a lasting monu
ment, and as we look at it a perma
Five months have been put into
this treaty, 32 nations have help in
its construction, many interests
have been considered.
There has been no revenge, in
grafted in any of the terms of the
pact, but provisions for future safe
ty has dominated more than any
one thing else the contents. While
reparation has not been lost sight of
still this has not been the main
idea, for we have all got to suffer
That a guarantee of the future
peace of the world, shall be consum
mated, is the main purpose, and
still allow every nation to become
big and great, with an opportunity
for all to enjoy domestic peace and
prosperity, with a plan for ample
commerce, for all the internal busi-
ness which may be developed.
SOLDIERS KEEP '
In the discussions recently con
cerning the Sunday newspapers a
religious organization having pro
posed a resolution to oppose the Sun
day paper one of the ministers
cautioned the assembly against tak
ing radical action upon the ques
tion. "Let us be sensible about this
matter," he said. "The Sunday
newspaper is just as necessary as
the Sunday trolley, which you at
tempted to condemn years ago." He
went on to show that the necessity
of the Sunday paper had been
amply demonstrated during the war.
The one thing which many people
fail to recognize is the fact that the
Sunday newspaper is made Satur
day night and not on Sunday. There
would be more logic in opposing the
Monday morning paper than oppos
ing the Sunday morning newspaper,
if one were thinking only of pre
venting labor on the Sabbath.
But it really, makes little differ
ence about the discussions. The
Sunday newspaper has established
its place and it hasn't harmed the
churches either. It is' going to re
main in its place, too. regardless of
all discussions. It is now cham
pioned by many of the ablest as
well as many of the most religious
minds in the world, and any org
anization that opposes it is simply
fighting the elements themselves
or they nvight as well fight the ele
ments. To be deprived of the news
of the world for one day a week is
to be one-seventh ignorant. And to
fail to read the great Sunday news
papers with their additional features
besides the news is to be more than
one-seventh behind In the matter of
spirituality. Columbus Dispatch.
War Pt the government into
life insurance. It rightly assumed
the war risk to which its soldiers
exposed themselves in defense of
the country. Two million soldiers
are returning from France. More
than 90 per cent of them carry gov
ernment war life insurance, the
average- policy being about $9,000.
and the aggregate $1S, 000, 000, 000.
Unless they take some further ac
tion this insurance will lapse auto
matically. The country's obliga
tion to these men does not lapse
when they receive their discharges.
They offered all in its defense. The
account is not settled when the last
pay voucher is signed. This govern
ment life insurance is now in force.
The equipment for continuing it is
in working order. The government
ought to continue it, and will. Any
returning soldier can have, for life,
government life insurance at cost.
It is a rare opportunity for them.
No soldier can any more afford to
throw it away than he could afford
to walk over a 10-dollar bill that
he might have by simply picking it
Nearly all' these soldiers
young men in prime condition

age and condition when life insur
ance can be bought cheapest, but
when commonly it is not bought at
all because a man feels no immed
iate need of it. In the normal
course of life he will presently feel
the need of it. It will cost him
more then, and if he has let this
opportunity to get government in
surance on a strict cost basis go by
it will be gone for good. x
