Society of Friends Voice Sentiments
in Letter Addressed to the President-Elect
The Religious Society of Friends
of the -United States have addressed
a letter to the president-elect in
which they have set forth their veiws
on the subject of increased naval
armament .and have given to the
press a copy of the letter which is as
Philadelphia. Pa., Jan. 4. 1921.
Warren G. Harding, .
The people of the United States
are vitally interested in the amount
of taxes they will be called upon to
pay during the years that lie im
mediately ahead. The items that
enter into the national budget are
therefore of more absorbing interest
no wthan perhaps ever before.
Nearly 68 per cent of the budget as
it stood shortly before the end of
the last fiscal year was devoted to
the payment of charges incurred in
the conduct of recent and previous
wars, and nearly 25 per cent to the
expenses of the war and navy de
partments. In all, therefore, a to
tal of nearly 93 per cent was devot
ed to past war and preparation for
possible future war. We cannot
shake off our liability for obligations
incurred in the past, but we can
resolve not to assume the intolerable
burden of armament competition in
; preparation for another conflict.
There has already been striking evi-
dence that the common people are
increasingly demanding relief from
the appalling cost of modern war
fare. The great conflict left no more ur
gent problem than that of making,
future wars impossible. The col
ossal destruction of life and proper
ty, the vast sum of human suffering
involved in war, the danger that an
other conflict may destroy our very
civilization itself, have all turned
men's minds as never before, toward
the goal of international peace and
good will. Statesmen and leaders
are striving to attain it. The mas
ses of people everywhere long for its
realization. The most practical first
step in the direction of peace and
good will is the reduction of na
Major General Tasker H. Bliss in
a remarkable address recently deliv
ered in Philadelphia, referred to the
doctrine of increasing armaments,
heretofore adopted by other nations.
"The application of this doctrine,"
he said, "seems to have a tendency
it is true, to reduce the frequency
of wars. But the ultimate result
is inevitable. The pent-upn dynamic
forces of the nations reach a point
tension at which resistence ceases
and then comes an explosion which
rocks the world to its base." Those
are mistaken, he states, "who may
think there can be an enduring and
effective association of the nations
for the maintenance of peace so long
as those nations are armed to the
teeth solely against each other. And
those are mistaken who think that,
so long as the present military sys
tem exists, there can be any peaceful
international court of arbitration."
We are convinced that these state
ments are profoundly true, and
therefore heartily endorse anel urge
upon the favorable attention of the
executive and legislative branches of
our government, the two proposals
that have been put forward looking
toward the reduction of armaments:
First: That this country shall
enter into an agreement with other
nations for a so-called naval holi
ray and refrain from new naval con
struction for a period of years.
Second: The even more funda
mental and important proopsal so
convincingly presented by General
Bliss, that this country shall take
the lead in a movement looking to
ward a world-wide reduction of ar
mies. Financial considerations alone are
sufficient to Justify these proposals.
Bht far more fundamental is the
avoidance of future war. May the
United States embrace to the full,
the wonderful and Christian consid
erations, and upon which the con
tinuation of our civilization may de
pend. On behalf of Philadelphia Yearly
Meeting of the Religious .Society of
WM. B. HARNEY, Scc'y.

MAY PAVE ROAD.
The matter of paving the high
way from the end of the pavement
in South Omaha to Fort Crook, is a
matter in which the residents of this
county who have automobiles will
be greatly interested and it bids fair
to he carried out. if the present plans
rroposed are accepted. J. H. Mc
Donald, chief of the bureau of pub
lic roads, at Washington, has taken
the matter up and as it is a military
highway, has suggested that it be
paved under the federal aid act.
The improving of the road has been
taken up by Congressman Jefferis in
whose district it is located and will
be brought to the attention of the

Schwartz, American socialist of Sat
Francisco, recently released fron
four months imprisonment in Mos
iow, declared today. With hi
wife, known twenty years in Amer
ica as a socialist worker under the
name of Jessie M. Molle, he went t
Russia last June and attended th
second congress of the third interna
The couple were thrown into pris
on August 6. because they failed U
approve conditions in Russia. The
were released December 3, after Mrs
Schwartz went on a hunger strike
Met By Brass Bands.
Mrs. Schwartz died at Reval De
comber 20. from the effects of hei
long solitary confinement and hun
ger, and her husband is returning
to America to give even worse pic
tures of conditions in Russia thar
many Italian. British and Germar
delegates to the congress of the thiro
Internationale have painted.
Describing the early part of hi;
visit, he said: "Everywhere ho went
we were met by brass bands am'
crowds waving red flags shoutinp
for the soviet government. But w(
weren't fooled. From the momen
we landed in Petrograd we saw mis
ery, dilapidation and squalor. We
suspected something was wrong,
which could not be explained merely
"I began talking to persons of al'
cb'.sses and broke away from our
bclshevist conductors. I soon found
that the shouting crowds had to
shout or their food ration would br
reduced or taken away. I never
talked with a single person outside
of officials, who had a good word tc
say for the soviet government.
Thrown Into New Prison.
"We asked for our baggage and
money and papers. We were told
we would be given them at the sta
tion. We carried more than ?M,00C
of American gold into Russia, which
had been taken from us, and we re
fused to move without it and were
thrown back into another prison
where my wife was the only woman
in a cell twenty feet square with
myself and thirty other men.
Finally the situation became so
desperate that she said she would
go on a hurfger strike and advertise
to fellow workers in America our
wrongs through her death rather
than continue to suffer.
"Five days later we were sent to
Reval, penniless. There the Ameri
can Y. M. C. A. gave us shelter, but
my wife had suffered too much. I
buried her there, assisted by the
American consul and Y. M. C. A.
workers and 1 am carrying a pic
ture of her grave back to our chil
dren and to the American workers
wh-. know how devoted she had been
to their cavse."
