Both sides of the rail strike appear to be looking
for something to come from Washington that will
bo helpful. The president, as has marked his course
from the beginning, declines to become excited. He
is quietly and patiently listening to both, watching
for the opening when it comes through which he
may lead the contestants into the way of agreement.
If he finds government not to be a simple matter,
it is because of the annoyance of petty partisans
who get childish gratification from noting the diffi
culty of the executive and who add to his perplexity
by persistently taunting him because he has not
worked a miracle. So far M. Harding has dealt
with the existing strikes on the basis that the men
engaged are reasonable and capable of compromis
ing. He is aware of the reluctance of either to yield
anything to the other, and understanding human
nature as he does, and sympathizing with it, he has
appealed to the sense of justice and fairness of all
to unite in efforts to bring disturbances to an end,
that industry and commerce, the life of the nation,
may proceed.
Demands that he give over persuasion and sub
stitute force have so far met no response from the
White House. It is the president of the United
States, not the head of a group, faction or party,
who is trying to solve a serious problem for the good,
not of one side or the other to an industrial dispute,
but for all the people, to the end that everybody will
get the square deal for which the government stands.
In this attitude he is entitled to receive and should
have the loyal support of every American, regardless
of party, creed or social position.
What will come from the conferences that are set
for todav must be left for the issue to determine.
A basis of settlement for the coal strike is looked
for at Cleveland; out of Washington may come
something that will bring the shophands' strike
nearer to its close. Speculation on these points is
It is not idle, though, to reiterate that the presi
dent's nosition all the way through has been one of
fairness, not of expediency, but in the interest of
justice. As head of the nation, and servant of all
the people, he must have regard for the general
good. Criticism born of bias or prejudice one way
or the other will not help the president. Just as it
was the patriotic obligation of every American to
stand back of Woodrow Wilson in 1917, so it is'
equally the obligation of all to give full and loyal
support to Warren G. Harding in 1922. When
Americans stand together in support of their presi
dent, the country is safe.
labored to uproot and exterminate the murder so
cieties, but it was not easy to stem the progress of
Marxism among the people.
Many times before the world war the socialists
made trouble for the government, both in and out
of parliament. Rightly or wrongly, the terrible col
lapse at Caporetto is ascribed to the propaganda of
the reds, and the resentment of tha opposition grew
with events that followed the armistice. Out of
these came the Fascisti, whose program was the ex
termination of the radicals. Many outrages have
disturbed the order of the kingdom, until now a
veritable civil war rages in Milan and Genoa, where
communists are hunted through the streets and
killed without mercy by the Fascisti.
Premier Facta has threatened to employ the army
to quell the rioting, but suspicion exists that he Is
secretly undisturbed so long as the war goes against
the opponents of the government At the best his
tenure of office is insecure and he and his patched
up cabinet may be turned out at any minute. The
world, however, looks for something better from a
power that threw its strength on the side of dem
ocracy in the greatest of all 'conflicts. Italy should
do something to make the kingdom safe for any sort
of politics short of anarchy.
Hanford MacNider's address at the Brandeis the
ater held something just a little beyond the immedi
ate issues of the day. While it is of a nature ap
plicable at all times, it takes a dip into the future,
and. foretells that which will interest Americans in
coming generations.
Mr. MacNider was referring to the possible po
litical activities of the Legionaires. In this he nat
urally included all the A. E. F. for with very few
exceptions they were American citizens, and such
as were rrot voters already are by this time. He told
of the influence the Grand Army of' the Republic
exerted onhe progress of events through its solid
arity in the north succeeding the civil war. Similar
solidarity will give to the American Legion a power
ful place in the affairs, not of a section of the United
States, but of the entire country.
However, Commander MacNider did not look on
this from the viewpoint of a partisan. He regards
the wearer of a Legion button in his true light, that
of a patriot, animated by the lofty ideals of genuine
Americanism, summed up in the terse but compre
hensive expression of a square deal. In partisan
politics the Legion will not meddle; in affairs of
America it should take a great part. ;
The young men of 1917 will be well settled men in
1930, substantial members of their several com
munities, active in business and professional life,
as many of them already are. If they are true to
the professions they now make, and we believe they
will be, the country is safe in their hands. Such an
organization is a menace only to the foes of good
One of the .reasons for the Russian stand at
Genoa and later at The Hague is disclosed in the
news from Moscow, to the effect that a bountiful
crop Is assured. So encouraging is the outlook that
orders have been sent to all foreign purchasing agen
cies of the soviet government to cease buying sugar
and flour. While this does not mean that the ex
periment of soviet government will be any more suc
cessful in the future than in the five years it has
been under way, it is an assurance that it may be
carried on with a little more of comfort.
The world can contemplate the progress of the
undertaking with more of complaisance if it is known
that babes are not dying for lack of food, that chil
dren are not starving and freezing to death, and
that workers will have something nourishing to sus
tain them as they toil for the state. The worst
phase of bolshevism is not that it destroyed
wealth, desecrated fanes and temples, looted palaces
and upset civiligation. The real crime of the cult
was against the people themselves, the unfortunates,
helpless and hopeless, who have frozen, starved, suc
cumbed to disease, by millions, all in the name of a
common brotherhood. Nothing more ghastly can be
found in all human experience than the record made
by bolshevism in Russia. -

Few American financiers or others who give at
tention to the money problems and systems of the
world question the standing of Paul M. Warburg. As
a trained and experienced financier he is strictly en
titled to speak with authority. At the Williamstown
Institute of American Politics last Wednesday, Mr.
Warburg, speaking of the financial situation in Eu
rope and what is needed over there, told the dele
gates :
Without wishing: today to discuss the ultimate
value of any of the plans suggested, Such schemes
as proposed In Senator Owen's and Senator Hitch
cock's foreign exchange banks, or Mr. Vanderllp's
international Federal Reserve, are dealing with
sauce in which the chicken is to be served before
the poor bird is hatched.
Neither Russia, nor Austria, nor Germany, nor
France, nor Italy, could be saved by the sole
remedy of substantial gold loans, or other opera
tions for the purpose of stabilizing or steadying
their exchanges, unless underlying conditions are
first straightened out. It has been well said that
to try to cure the patient by fussing with for
eign exchanges is like trying to break a fever by
blowing upon the thermometer.
Mr. Warburg did suggest that interest charges
on the loan to England be rebated, and that certain
portions of the principal be remitted to France,
Italy and Belgium. Others who discussed the prob
lem took up the phases of a readjusted basis for
reparations, of revision of the Treaty of Versailles,
and possible cancellation of debts, but none dis
agreed with Mr. Warburg's estimate of" the bank of
Kearney Hub.

cancellation be preceded by world
wide disarmament. And England,
the first to ask for release of Its hon

favors the forgiveness of England's
debt, but It is only England's debt
to the United States they want for
given, not the private debts of these
far peoples to our Pierpont Morgan
and his associate bankers.
For a century and more the
United States kept Itself free from
entangling alliances and because we
minded our own business we had the
respect of the world. We want no
more to do with the deceit, intrigue
and manipulations of the European
governments, which are standing on
the verge of bankruptcy. Why
should we finance these governments
in their further despoliation, ex

Persia, eastern Siberia, China and

build a wall of ostracism, social and

to recognize It until it pays its "hon

similar wall about England until It

A Chicago university professor, who served as a
judge in a moving picture scenario contest, noticed that
most of the writers specified that the villain wear a
black mustache. That set him thinking on why fiction
is so insistent on indicating scoundrels in this way.
"The idea that dark hair across the upper lip de
notes wickedness is an ancient one, handed down from
the northern European peoples," he announces. "Those
blond races have implanted popular beliefs and ideas in
the United States today, inheritance telling their su
perstitions to us over and over again. Their folk and
fairy tales are ours. They were always at war with
people of the southern European nations and grew to
associate the black hair and mustaches of those enemies
with general villainy and wickedness. They terrified
their children with stories, myths and legends of black
whiskered marauders and murderers."
Inasmuch as ours is a emooth-shaven age, there is
na call to rush to the defense of the black mustache.
The only pdssible service that a recognition of such
facts as these can be turned to is to suggest that there
are many other customs and prejudices that have no
firmer foundation than this. Modern man is a creature
of the past, and his opinions, manners and aspirations
are to a large extent dependent not on his own ex
perience but on that of ancestors, some of them ex
tremely remote.

On July 1 there wis a considerable
number of employes in the mechnnl
cal department of railroad who re
mnined In the service and there
were a great many volunteer from
other departments who Immediately
performed service in the mechanical
department that made it possible
for the rullroads to operate and to
serve the public. They made con
slderable sacrifice in performing
service they were not familiar with
in a department where they had not
been employed before and made
further sacrifices of their families,
all because of their loyalty to their
employer and their sense of duty
to the public. The president's plan
provided for a return to service of
every former employe who left the
service In the strike of July 1, 1SZ2
with seniority unimpaired," which
is directly at variance with the or
der of the United Slates railroad
labor board of July 3, reading as

No Children Allowed.
From the Fremont Tribune.
It is quite necessary that before
a human being can become an adult
he must previously have been a
child. It is even more essential, if
the human race la to progress, that
there be children and lots of them.
There Is nothing that will balance
domestic relations more than the
raising of children. A home barren
of young is a desolate thing to look
upon. Domestic tranquility can
hardly survive where tiny hands and
little feet and happy voices have no
Yet In our modern way, we have
placed a penalty on children. Scores
of householders and apartment own
ers thoughtlessly display the motto.
'No Children Allowed!" Where cats
and dogs can come and go, children
are barred forever.
The human child is naturally a
rather noisy specimen of the race.
he is curious, inquisitive and at
times troublesome. When things
don't go right is his young life, he
usually cries until conditions are
rectified. Before he acquires a
proper idea of property valuation.
he is liable, if not watched, to wreck
the furniture and disturb the peace
of the neighborhood.
But in spite of all this, he is
God's most wonderful creation. He
brightens every home he enters. He
is happiness personified. He makes
grownups forget their troubles, !
makes them feel young again, makes I
them want to frolic and play as
they used to do when they were
Apartment owners, of course, have
the right to speciry tne conamons
under which their property is
rented, but they are hardly Justified
in picking on the children. No nor
mal marriage should be childless.
No healthy man or woman wants to
be childless. No right-thinking
landlord will put up the sign, "No
Children Allowed!" if he thinks
twice before he acts.
