measures too numerous to mention
are all now matters of bistory. In
deed, it. is because Mr. Bryan has
had pre-eminently, among all the
statesmen of his generation, the gift
of vision, and becauBo he has shown
always such a comprehensive grasp
of all the many problems he has
studied so profoundly that anything
he may now offer upon the solution
of the railroad problem in the United
States is -entitled to a great deal of
respect and consideration. For that
reason we deem it a privilege and
pleasure to be able to print elsewhere
on this page an able editorial by Mr.
Bryan which appeared in a recent
Issue of The Commoner on this vital
ly important matter of the govern
ment's ownernship and control of
railroads in this country, and we
commend a most careful reading of
this statement of Mr. Bryan to all
States in Europe, and ohf own sol
diers os tke battlefroBt will get that
much more of the food of which they
are in need.

high spirits, because I am sure they
would all like to feel that they are
in fact fighting in France by joining
the home garden army."
In his letter, which follows, the
President approves the design of
Secretary Lane to arouse the school
children of the United States to "as
real and patriotic an effort as the
building of ships or the firing of
"Washington, Feb. 25. My dear
Mr. Secretary: I sincerely hope that
you may be successful through the
bureau of education in arousing the
interest of teachers and children in
the schools of the United States in
the cultivation of home gardens.
Every boy and girl who really sees
what the home garden may mean
will, I am sure, enter Into the pur
pose with high spirits, because I am
sure they would all like to feel that
they are in fact fighting in France
by joining the home garden army.
They know that America has un
dertaken to send meat and flour and
wheat and other foods 'for the sup
port of the soldiers who are doing
the fighting, for the men and women
who are making the munitions, and
for the boys and girls of western
Europe, and that we must also feed
ourselves while we are carrying on
this war. The movement to estab
lish gardens, therefore, and to have
the children work in them is just as
real and patriotic an effort as the
building of ships or the firing of
cannon. I hope that this spring
every school will have a regiment in
the Volunteer War Garden Army.
"Cordially and sincerely yours,
(Signed) "WOODROW WILSON."
Hon. Franklin K. Lane,
Secretary of the Interior.
It is Secretary Lane's idea, that Is
