Can Gorgas Do It?
The proposal of the Rockefeller Foundation
to send General (lorgas to stem the scourse of
typhus fever, now devastating Serbia, and clean
tip the country in a sanitary way, comprehends
the mightier! task ever net for man. It Is an en
terprise compared to which the job of ridding
the Canal Kone of yellow fever and similar
dlsesses was a holiday.
On the Isthmus General Gorgas had the a'
tlve assistance and hearty co-operation of a
highly organized military force, sod an intelli
gent civil government. In Serbia he would have
neither. However willing the authorities may
be to assist him, or anyone else in the under
taking, It is impossible at present. The Serblau
military authorities have all they can attend to
with the armies 1n (he field, while the civil gov
ernment does not exist, so far as it might be
useful in such a huge enterprise as ridding the
country of the plague.
Conditions in Serbia are most appalling, and
are growing worse; adjacent territory Is Ihrea'
ened, and will undoubtedly be Invaded by tlie
scourge, unless checked. Science can check the
spread of typhus or similar fevers, but to do so
must have assistance. If this can be had, Oor
gas is the man for the undertaking. His genius
for organization, his fearlessness and bis fa
miliarity with sanitary work make him mot
available for the succor of Serbia.
Again has cultured Europe turned to
America to a work for humanity, which can not
be done by the civilized nations of that conti

has just put Into a nook of shelter over which
waves the Stars and Stripes, and will probably
remain there till after the war is over. It will

taken similar refuge. Uncle Sam has plenty of
room la his harbors for all the navies of the
world, and will gladly give them all anchorage,
if they will only come In and behave.
Incidentally, there's a further touch of Ger
man humor In the story of the Kronprlns Wil

ammunition, th Germans transferred Us most
effective artillery to their own ship, mounted

Among the really good measures enacted by

the acquisition pf a workfarm and the erection
of a workhouse In Douglas county.

wants something Tha Bee haa beeu advocating

piles and occasional road work for our petty of

prisoners have had no more unpleasant pros

cure In the county jail.
Idleness for Jail prisoners is contrary to i
every accepted doctrine of prison policy, to say
nothing ot Its costliness, and the Invitation It
offers to professionals to make this community
take care of them. A workhouse should no;
only reduce the cost to tho taxpayers of main
taining prisoners, but should cut down the num
ber of those to be cared for by serving notice t j
outsiders that police court conviction in Oman
means enforced labor rather than a loafing Jon.
Our county authorities and civic organiza
tions should , get together without delay on a
workhouse program aa a project of practical
philanthropy and business economy combined.

"A pessimist Is one of the greatest evils
that ever annoyed the community, but

So will an Idiot. 'Tie said that fools

naturally have peculiar misgivings re

a disinclination to exert energy. Ho who
deliberately closes his eye te conditions

to live simply for his own comfort. Slums,
