SEEKING THE PRESIDENT'S HELP. 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 Idle. 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. FUTURE FOR THE LEGION. 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 government. RUSSIAN HARVEST OUTLOOK. 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. - If Lenine, Trotsky & Co. can carry on their buai- "BANK OF NATIONS" GETS A BLOW. 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 nations.

That means, witnout licstlnir around the bush an inch, a cancellation of Its obllgatlong by this nation. Monetary forgiveness by America ts a prime requisite to com- nlete the circle, we snouia giuay the English proposal, not from the aitrnietin nolnt of view, but merely as a common-sense, wonu-auving, proposal. Norfolk Pre. Marie Weekes: America cannot and will not consider the cancella tion of foreign debts unless such cancellation be preceded by world wide disarmament. And England, the first to ask for release of Its hon est debts, would be the. last to dis arm. True, tne money power wnicn constitutes our invisible government 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 ploitation, torture and massacre of the DeoDle of Ireland. Egypt, India, Persia, eastern Siberia, China and Korea? If the United States may build a wall of ostracism, social and economic, around Russia, refusing to recognize It until it pays its "hon est" debts, then why not build a similar wall about England until It at least furnishes an I.

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. The merry little civil war in China shows the pro gress the Celestials have made in western ways, if nothing else. If they must fight, it is just as well they fight each other. The senate has passed the wool schedule, despite the earnest opposition of the Boston manufacturers and their democratic allies. And yet the revolution has not commenced. . Some investigator may yet come across some of the records that will show a time when Woodrow Wilson was not so popular in Senator Hitchcock's office. Falls City Journal. Aaron Davidson: The allies' debts to America were made honorably and should be paid the same, as to a private concern. Cancellation to permit European powers to increase their armaments would be a trav esty. Part payments could be made In equity by ceding some of their possessions gained by military con quest; the billions in art treasures buried in European museums and galleries could also be converted into payments. Nelson Gazette. Nations, like individuals, com mand respect only Insofar as they maintain their integrity. If. there be any honor in war, the least to be expected of the participants is that they meet the resultant obliga tions. A charity that violates this principle would be a dangerous Ravenn Vews. C. B. Cnss: Tha United States government pledged Its faith to re pay to the people of America the vast sums loaned to foreign nations during the war. Likewise, the na tions who received this much-needed financial help, when their very ex istence depended upon it, pledged their faith to return the loan when peace and prosperity were restored In the debt of the allied nations to America, in the greatest debt of honor the world has ever known. It ill becomes the proud and mighty British empire, with the vast re sources of Canada, India, Australia, Ireland, Scotland, Wales and parts of Africa' behind It, to head a policy of abrogation. How the United States should proceed to collect these debts is a problem for finan ciers rather than country editors. This is not saying that 'some re sourceful oountry editor might not be equal to the task, however. Spalding Enterprise ' M, M. SulHvan: Let European nations issue long time bonds to us with a reasonable rate of interest which must be paid. English prop aganda Is responsible for sentiment favorable to cancellation of all war debts.

Maupln: Cancellation of foreign Indebtedness is a matter that demands the wisest statesman ship and the exercise of the bright est financial minds. Of course, country editors ougnt to grasp the subject and arrive at a conclusion instanter, but I happen to be one who cannot. But if there is any good reason why we should cancel the debts owing to us by foreign nations, why not go the whole route and have a grand cancellation of all debts and start over again on an even basis?

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 follows: "Whereas, in the future sub mission of disputes involving rules, wages and grievances of said classes of employes of the car riers, it will be desirable, if not a practical necessity, for the em ployes of each class on each car rier to form some sort of asso ciation or organization to func tion in the representation of. said employes before the railroad labor board, in order that the effective ness of the transportation act may be maintained. "Now, therefore, be it resolved, that it be communicated to the carriers and the employes re maining in the service and the new employes succeeding those who have left the service to take steps as soon as practicable to perfect on each carrier such or ganizations as may be deemed necessary for the purposes above mentioned, and, "Be It further resolved, that If It be assumed that the employes who leave the service of tho car rier because of their dlssatisfac- tlon with any decisions of the labor board are within their rights In so doing, it must likewise be conceded that the men who re main In the service and those who enter it anew are within their rights in accepting such employ ment, that they are not strike breakers seeking to impose the ar bitrary will of an employer on em ployes that have the moral as well as the legal right to engage In such service of the American public to avoid interruption of indispen sable railway transportation, and What Other Editors Say July 1, 1922, to the detriment of till loyal einplove who remained and those who have been hired vince, Frankly speaking, It would reward those who went out on strike, rcn der the order burned by the United Wales railroad labor board of Julv J null and void, establish striking employe In a poult Inn where they could, and would, humiliate eve.y loyal employe who remained In the service, make It seriously inron venlent and embarrassing If not en tirelv Impossible for the host of employe who stepped In the breach and rendered service to the public that can never be adequately paid for with money.

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 place. 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 kiddies. 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.
