It ia well to pauHi' today, if only for a Lit of in
troijiection, to deride how far each of u ha ftriven
to keep alive the clear light ao tirijfhtly burning on
November 11, jyiH.
All that had been hoped for hu nut come to
l; maybe it never will come to pax, That will
be fur mankind to ilvtermine, Cloud have arisen
to obscure the beacon which guided men through
the terrible day of the war. When the main pyre
on which iviiizntirtn wa pinioned wuk muttered, it
ember flew far and wide, and they are slow to ex
pire. Hut they are dying out, and the smoke clouli
if war are thinning and disappearing, clearer skie
ai shining, and a chastened world ia emerging
from ita bath of lilood and sorrow.
Strong fuith may be required to see this, yet
tine great proof ia ai. band. Civilized people do not
make war; ambltioua ruler may be iiggreaaive, but
the common men and women abhor strife on gen
eral principles, and the people are taking their own
fairs into their own hand. Great statesmen may
prate about nationul honor, but the ennnon fodder.
of the day is demanding to be shown that national
honor call fur the sacrifice of live.
Junt a the great fabric of our civic liberty is
made up of small contribution by each individual
from hi personal liberty, ho the growth of civic
liberty and it spread throughout the world is made
possible by the contribution of each In the woy of
helpful effort. The Omnha Bee believe that even
the moat self-centered of men I giving something
to thi great cause. Jf thi I not truo, then prog
re i halted to that extent. It 1 better to find out
what you are giving rather than to complain of
what your neighbor i withholding. When you have
done all you can do to achieve the Ideal of liberty
under the law and equal jutice for all men, you
will huve added your share to the fuel that feeds
the light which shone over the world at that blessed
hour of 1 1 o'clock on the morning of the eleventh
day of the eleventh month, in the year of grace, 1918.
Thii is a day for rededicatlon, for reconsecra
tion to, in the undying words of the immortal
"highly resolve that these dead shall nnt have died
' In vain tbat thi nation, untlor Ood, shall have a
new birth of freedom and that government of the
people, for the people, nnd by the people, shall not
perish from the earth."
One impression brought away from watching
Charles Gilpin's development of the character of
Emperor Jones is that a good square meal would
have turned the course of that drama, and brought
a triumph for its hero. Jones had providently buried
a supply of food at the place he designed to enter
the forest in event of his being- forced to flee. He
improvidently neglected to so mark the place that
he could identify it again, or else, his fear, already
sprouted, so bewildered his judgment that he missed
his direction. Loss of his expected food not only
weakened him physically, but added to his mental
perturbation, until he fell at last victim to his own
Five years ago we were being told wherever the
eye turned that "Food will win the war!" Food did
win the war, and not the least of America's contri
bution was the voluntary abstention from eating to
the end that Hooverization of our daily menu might
be made complete, but even extended. It was an
inspiration then, and it is a comfort now to recall
how many deprived thenjselves of substantials and
took up substitutes that they might aid in winning
It is not inspiring, however, to reHd that in many'
parts of the country good food is going to waste,
because of the cost of getting it to market exceeds
or equnls at least the price it will sell, and produc
ers are averse to working for nothing. ,Alo, the
spectacle of starving millions in other lands, de
presses even while it encourages the exercise of our
ultimate efforts to relieve the distress.
Food not only win war, but it ia man's greatest
problem, for It is only when he has more food" than
he needs for immediate use that he can do the
other things necesfary to his advancement. Just
now the entire subject of fod is getting more in
tensive study than it ever had, and reason exists to
hope that in the not far ahead future production
and distribution will be o co-ordinated that we will
not have the spectacle of potatoes or apples left to
rot in the field while only a few mile away children
r going to bed hungry.
UKpirution was strong for domination of the Adri
atic and a measure of control in the llslkan and the
Mediterranean. Refusal of America and the allies
to allow it to occupy Kiume and the Albanian port
of Valona wa received by Italian as an Insult ami
Italy did receive Trent, Trieste and the South
Tyrol in addition to a sphere of influence in Asiu
.Minor, liut with a large surplus population it de
sired real colonial concessions. The problem of
feeding ,J congested people caused a hunger for
wide stretches of wheat land. Accordingly, at the
peace conference it put in a claim for a large share
of Asia Minor, a slice of Dalmatia and the cession
by France and Britain of a part of their North
A things now stand, Italy i still dependent on
Great Britain for most of its fuel and raw ma
terial and import also great quantities of food.
This dependence on foreign nation, together with
the attitude of superiority adopted by .France and
Fngland in leaving Italy out of their confidence In
diplomatic move about the Mediterranean, gulls
the proud and desperute spirit of the fuscisti.
Premier Mussolini accordingly ha dispatched
a bold note to it former allies, serving notice that
if there i any further division of spoils Italy in
tends to be in on it. The charge that Great Britain
i deliberately courting war with the Turks is apt
to have its repercussion in London, Furthermore,
the claim that England is plotting for private con
trol of the Dardanelles, made by an unnamed
Italian diplomat, appear as uncomfortably close
to the truth as it is undiplomatic, These new
leaders of Italy wear the black shirts of the fascisti,
and their statesmanhip I coatless.
The people of Europe do not want another war,
but it is impossible to see how the action of Italy
contributes much to the prospects of peace. This
ia open diplomacy, but it appears not to be based
on any idea of world welfare, but on the Bame
spirit of national aggrandizement that is hampering

CLOSING THE TAX EXEMPT REFUGE.
In spite of the natural hesitancy over changing
the fundamental law, two more amendments to the
constitution of the United States are in the air.
One of these proposals concerns child labor and is
rather more familiar to the general public than the
other, which concerns the elimination of tax ex
President Harding has recently come out in
favor of the adoption of a pending resolution pro
posing a constitutional amendment closing the door
to tax exemption. This is in line with his message
of last December in which he said: "I think our
tax problems, the tendency of wealth to seek non
taxable investments, and the menacing increase of
public debt federal, state and municipal all jus
tify a proposal to change the constitution so as to
end the issue of nontaxable bonds."
Notwithstanding the fact that the principle of
the income tax is now firmly established in public
favor, yet the income from billions of dollars' worth
of bonds is untouched by taxation. Prof, Edwin R. A.
Seligman, the famous American authority on taxa
tion, estimates that there are $10,000,000,000 worth
of municipal bonds of this sort outstanding, and
$20,000,000,000 in government bonds, tax exempt
to a greater or less extent. He estimates that if
the tax exemption of federal bonds alone could be
abolished, tax revenues would be increased by $300,
000,000 a year.
The advantage of these issues goes mainly to
wealthy investors. Governmental divisions are en
couraged to emit bonds for larger amounts than
they should by the fact that there is a ready mar
ket for them. It is said to be a fact that if tax free
bond issues were to increase at the present rate for
the next three years, they would absorb every cent
of new capital in the United States.
It is readily apparent how such a movement
withdraws capital from productive industry.
Charles M. Schwab has declared that he could re
tire from active business, reinvest his fortune in
tax exempt securities and treble his income. Many
men of wealth have followed this course and the
people pay the tax.
The last three secretaries of the treasury have
favored a constitutional amendment permitting tax
ation pf public securities. A committee of con
gress hna held protracted hearings on the matter,
and it indeed seems probable that thia refuge from
the income tax is to be eliminated.

Tlie Crime Problem.
Omaha. To the Kdltor of The
Omaha Bee: The publlo compalns of
being molested by criminals contin
ually, but they do not make an effort
to correct the lax law so that the
wrongdoer will face extreme penal
ties for their depredations, and that
when caught they will be fed on the
punishment which they contracted
There can be no ray of hope for the
public until dire measures are taken
whereby the prospective criminal will
realize what will be meted out to him
should he commit any of the forbid
den act against organized society.
Tho sympathetic public allow Inhu
man act to be committed against
them for no reason whatever, Instead
of protecting themselves and also
teaching these human weeds that they
can not survive in the garden of good
Mas the public ever considered that
they have not done their full duty
and exhausted every means to eradi
cate the criminal element? Would It
not be a sensible thing to do away
with the law allowing the governor or
board the power to pardon and parole
convicted criminals? Why place this
right In one or a few men which r.f
fects the comfort and ease of mind of
the public? If the governor or board
prefers to open the gates of the peni
tentiary to the convicted what Is the
necessity of confining the Inmates In
the beginning? There can be no half
way feeling about this: either a crimi
nal should be confined or he should
be allowed to roam the highway un
molested. Why should the state be
placed at the expense of catching and
jailing him? If he doe not respect
the right of freedom before he com
mits his act why make the publlo
suffer at his bands by turning him
The public pays triple for It crim
inal: First, it pays by suffering for
the criminal's lawlessness; secondly.
It pay for his being caught, tried
nnd convicted, nnd lastly, It pay pro
bation ottlcern, pardon nnd parole of
ficer and the governor to free him.
Doe the public reahm that It they
exacted severe penalties on criminal
thi would aid in diminishing their
number? Why tolerate Indeterminate
sentences where tha maximum con
finement la for nine month, or one
year? Prime should t punishable

ergy far beyond the dreams of clen
tide convictions," Dr. Aston said, In
explaining how science has discovered
the secret of chemical transmutation.
"Tho possibility of such transmuta
tion be achieved on a large scale In
the future I of the utmost Import
ance," he said.
Of course, It I possible that ome
savant will use transmutation nnd
develop a great world exploding
power, the scientist admit, but he
doesn't believe It will happen.
"If," the doctor says, "if we could
transmute four grammes of hydrogen
Into one gram of helium, three
grammes of matter would be annihila
ted, and if all the hydrogen on earth
were detonated, the earth and all of
Its Inhabitant would be dissipated
"The probability or thi catastropne,
however, 1 practlcully negligible.
I have read newspaper article
pointing out the danger of sdi-ntlUc
discovery and actually suggesting
that anything which might lead lo
the liberation of atomlo energy should
be suppressed. There I no doubt that
humanity ha misused the gift of
clence In a most deplorable nuinner
In the past and doubtles will continue
to do so In the future; but, speaking
generally, I regard such a point of
view as ridiculously pessimistic.
Lone- aiio our apelike ancestors no
doubt grumbled at the Innovation of
