Has anybody seen, outside of the
campaigfn literature speeches, any
si&n of enthusiasm over aay presi
dential candidate ol any party? Is
there anywhere in Nebraska, for in
stance, any great spontaneous Inter
est in any presidential candidate in
any party?
Mark Sullivan has lately toured
the middle west studying the presi
dential situation. He finds every
where the public indifference which
seems so pronounced in Nebraska.
The presidential candidates are not

great furore of campaigning a large
vote was got out in South Dakota,
but the voters showed no positive,
trend even there. They divided al
most eveuly among the three leading
candidates. , . , . ,
Mr. Sullivan has an 'explanation
of this apparent public apathy, and
It is significant If true. The people
are not interested In the presidential
campaigns of the old type politicians,
he says, because they have lost hope
or faith in the old parties, or rather
in the ways of their politicians. They
consider congress and the politicians
behind the times. They do not deal
in the matters which the people have
at heart. They continue dealing in
political spoils when the people have
nothing but disgust for the spoils sys
tem. " They continue to run -politics
for pontics' sake, whereas the people
are anxious for a politics capable
of solving the social problems under
which they are bowed.
What positive form does this pub
lic attitude take? A disposition, ac
cording to Mr. Sullivan, to. grade a
presidential candidate up about in
proportion as the party politicians
grade him down. If" General Wood
has any advantage over Governor
Lowden, It Is because Wood has been
less identified with the old party pol'
itics. The real beneficiary of this
attitude of the middle western pub
lic, says Mr.' Sullivan, is Herbert
Hoover. Hoover has been no poli
tician at all. He ran the food ad
ministration without taint of poli
tics. He picked as his assistants
men of notable ability, disregarding
politics. Maybe a man so divorced
from the politics-for-politicians uabli
might do something to-set up a poli
tics for the public system. Every
where he went, says Sullivan, he
found this point of view strongly
The apathy which Mr. Sullivan dis
covers is self evident. . The existeace
of a widespread, spontaneous Hoover
sentiment in both parties Is equally
obvious. The relation between thi
two, as Mr, Sullivan sees it, is an
explanation of what hitherto has
been something of a mystery.
It is with devout satisfaction we
arrive this year at the final day of
March. There have been March
months which made us feel like apol
ogizlng for 'the bad name we give the
windy month. This has not been one
of the number. March has lived
down to Its reputation this year and
then some. It is impossible to imag
Ine any one being sorry to see it go
Here in Nebraeka the wind must
have traveled close to a million miles
this month. A great pendulum has
kept swinging north and south, an
alternation of bloirs. One day we
swallow South pakota dust; the next
we sample Kansas. The winds have
trimmed the trees and wherever was
a weak telephone pole, there has
- downfall The roaring ol
BLVU c . -
he wind has been so Ineessant we
have ceased to hear it-
Maybe March afforded one sweet
spring day and maybe two. B
surely not more. At least once it
na. with a zero chill. At no
LUUuv" "
time was it safe, o trust a bright
morning to lead ter a pleasant day.
After January and February had been
quiet and kind, it was truly disap
pointing to find March doing the
lion act the whole month through.
We have no special, complaint here
in Nebraska. We seem, Indeed, to
have been an isle of comparative
calm and mildness with raging
oceans of worse wind and blizzard to
the north, east, south and west.
Nevertheless, even our sort of March
was plenty. Begone, madcap month
and return no more till capable of
i better conduct.
Americans without regard to oth
er division of opinion will join with
President Wilson in demanding that
the Turk be ousted from Europe and
deprived of- any dominion over Chris
tian peoples.. The character of the
note to the allies with regard to the
treaty of peace now being formulated
for the Turk Is clear, emphatic and
resolutely American in its tone.
Along with it must go a perfect un
derstanding of what it involves. The
French government expresses perfect
concurrence in the spirit and pur
pose of the note, but asks "how these
ends can be achieved without the
force necessary to deal with the trou
ble certain to result among the Mus
sulman population."
Mustapha Kemal, - leader or the
Turkish 'nationalist faction, is busy
striving to arouse- Mohammedans to
a holy war, asserting that the occu-
pancy of Constantinople is an insult
to the Moslem world. He has de
clared the sultan no longer caliph of
Islam, an act of rebellion, but one
that must certainly appeal to the fa
naticism he is cultivating. Yet, in
the face of this, the United States
has a right to demand that the pow
ers of Europe deal firmly with the
Turkish situation, to the end that
the presence of this enemy of civiliza
tion in Europe will no longer irritate
and disturb the peace.
The proposal that Russia he given
a voice at such time as a stable gov
ernment is set up there, with a right
to review any action now taken at
Paris, is also sound. Russia's con
cern in the Bosporus and Dardanelles
exceeds that of any other European
nation. Only jealousy of Russia and
a desire to shut off Odessa from easy
communication with the outer world
by leaving the sultan supreme over
the straits connecting the Caspian
with the Mediterranean, has held the
situation as it has been for so many
When the Turk has been expelled
from Europe, and the important wa
terway he has so long straddled has
been internationalized, a potent bond
for permanent peace will have been
given the world. Omaha Bee.
Efficiency in the home is quite as
necessary as it is in the factory. The
home is, in fact, a happiness factory
for the family when its. mistress
gives intelligent attention to her du
ties. It Is,' of course, a moral obli
gation that the husband, In his .wis
dom, should aid to the extent of his
ability in making the home all it
should be, but alas! How often are
his well meant efforts spurned.
Take the case of William Economo
of Detroit, for instance. William is
a methodical man, a believer in time
schedules, who would have his wife
improve not only each shining hour.
but every precious minute. Know
ing that success is not attained by
haphazard methods, he devised a time
table for his new "wife. It required
her to rise at 5:45. At 5:57 she was
to be dressed. At 5:59 her hands
and face were to be washed.
6:19 breakfast was "to ibq ready and
eaten. ; ' : ' '..
William , went to-work then, but
the time table provided for sweepin
and other household work during his
absence. It was an admirable ar
rangement, in that it developed speed
in the performance of. home tasks.
One day William, discovered that 20
minutes of, his wife's time were un
occupied, whereupon he revised the
time table and suddenly found his
domestic accommodation train side'
tracked in the divorce court station
The Judge, acting as train dispatcher
ordered it run to Alimony, where the
brakes were set and the engine taken
to the round house.
What encouragement is there any
more for husbands to make them
selves useful about the house? Here
was a loving mate who might have
made wife a standardized model
of domestic efficiency. But she was
not clock-broke. She would't work
on a time schodule. Now she gets
up when she wants to, does as she
pleases, and her husband lias to pay
her J 10 a week after trying to run
her like an automobile faetory.
It is discouraging for husbands
isn't it?
