In the enforced absence of Presi
dent Wilson, it fell to Secretary of
Labor Wilson to make the keynote
address to the national labor confer
ence which met at Washington on
jMonaay. ine secretary stood on
sound ground in advocating increar,
ed production and more direct dis
tribution as the means to a restora
tion of a reasonable cost of living,
and In that, regardless of detailed
issues of the relations of capital and
labor, he should have the support
of every delegate- to the conference
Secretary Wilson said:
"The more productive we are, the
sooner we will replace the wastage
of war, return to normal price levels
and abolish the opportunity for profi
teering. It is only where the pro
duction is not sufficient for the needs
of the people, or when sufficient.
where artificial obstructions impede
proper distribution, that there Is any
possiDinty 01 pronieering.
The proposition is so simple that
one wonders how meii can debate it.
If only 10 per cent of all the people
rroduce anything famine is certain.
If only half or three-fourths of them
work there is less produce available
for consumption than when all work,
scarcity develops, some must do
without and the cost to all increases
That is what has been going ou
during the war. Millions of men
Lave been engaged in destroying in
stead of producing. The wastage
Las- been immense.
By the same simple reasoning, if
tbose who work are willing to work
ci'ly two hours a day the world
would starve. Or if, while working
eight or ten or twelve hours a day.
they accomplish only one-fourth of
a fair day's work, jthe result will be
tLc same. And as the hours or the
efficiency of labor diminish toward
this extreme the inevitable result
obtains in increasing proportion.
No one advocates today a genei 1
twelve-hour day in industry. Expe
rience has proved that, with labor
saving machinery, the workers of
the world can produce enough for
a'! in less time than that. On the
other hand, no sane man contends
for a four-hour day, for the simple
reason that the world's industry
cannot produce enough food, enough
clothing, enough fuel in that short
time to maintain life throughout
the twenty-four hours of the day.
Somewhere between the extremes
there is a point where labor will
produce enough to maintain all, and
no more. What that point is no one
can tell with certainty; it can be
approached only roughly, by trial
and experiment.
Bui today the world's under-sun-
ply of essential commodities is not
open to question. There is a scarcity
of food particularly, of other articles
in only slightly less degree." The
immediate problem is a restoration
of a normal degree. That can be
achieved only by increased produc
tion. It need not be forced produc
tion, entailing the hardship of the
sweatshop on any individual. But
it should be an honest day's work,
for at least eight hours, by all labor.
Anything less constitutes not only a
wrong upon the unproductive in
cluding women, children, the sick
and aged but upon labor itself.

The New York Evening Post finds
that the reservation to Article 10
prepared by the foreign relations
committee is not only offensively
worded but is ambiguous in its real
meaning. The debate as to the sig-
nificanceof the reservation is be
coming as tense as over the mean
ing or Article 10 itself. A reserva
tion must therefore be appended to
this reservation in case it is passed,
to save the nation from serious con
sequences in the future; or perhaps
it wodld be well to write on the
margin of the covenant a statement
as to what the United States under
stands the document it is signing
to mean.
While the men who are fighting
for ratification without qualifications
object naturally enough to all of reservations the general, public
sees no particular harm in them. If
a majority of the senators believe
any part of the covenant to be dan
gerously ambiguous they can write
their interpretation on the margin
without endangering the treaty or
preventing a start being made to

The weak spot in the American
line is her municipal politics. If a
