Dealing with Unemployment.
The Welfare board and the city council have
Jointly tackled -the unemployment question, at
least to the extent of elaborately dlscuaslng con
ditions and suggeat'ng local palliatives. Plans
for providing employment during the winter to
those who would otherwise be out of work, and,
therefore, dependent on public charity, may be
put Into force. It Is quite possible to do a great
deal of work in the winter that Is ordinarily left
over for summer. Borne of this work can easily
be undertaken at this time and a great deal of
good be accomplished In the way of removing
the condition of unemployment. Popular belief
to the contrary, not a great many men prefer to
be supported in Idleness. The great majority
of them are not only willing, but eager to work
at anything that will give them living wages.
The fact that work is to precede charity will
inevitably operate to drive away the professional
The plan Is not new apd has been success
fully tried by other communities. If tbe city
commissioners or the county commissioners
have ready any program that will provide em
ployment for any number of men, they should
not hesitate to act the work going. This applies
equally to private enterprises. Well remuner
ated work is far more desirable than tbe most
generous of giving.
Why He Worriei.
The home editor of the senator's personal
organ Is greatly exercised over the harmony that
prevailed at the meeting of the republican na
tional committee at Washington. He would
have been wonderfully well pleased if that meet
ing had been attended by serious dissension, or
hsd expressed any doubt as to the outcome of
the campaign next year. The confidence with
which each member of the committee views the
prospect, and the certainty that the disorganized
democrats will face a reunited and militant re
publican party,' affords little consolation, and
no hope to those whose political fortunes are
bound np with the present administration. The
senator himself, who but a few months ago was
In opposition to the president and defiant to the
caucus, and who felt the chastening rod of party
discipline, is now both amenable and compliant
and can see only good coming out of the White
House. His continuance in bis seat at Washing
ton turns entirely on his ability to maintain him
self In the good graces of those whose bands dis
pense the favors at Washington. It is, there
fore, very necessary that the senator's home
editor rail at the republicans and pretend to dis
cover much that Is "contemptible" In all they
do. Behind his front of assumed nonchalance
he wears a worried look. The reunion of re
publicans promises very little for democratlo
- Preparing1 for Preparedness.
The earnest opponents of a general program
for national defense have almost reached their
isst ditch in their retreat before the facts that
confront the country. They sow admit tbe pos
sibility of the United States being called upon to
defend Its people, or maybe Us territory, against
aggression from some foreign power. This need,
they hold, readily can be met through means
now at hand. Herein lies tbe ultimate weak
ness of their proposition. It is no longer a
question of willingness, but of ability to fight.
The call for volunteers undoubtedly would real-
e Mr. Bryan's prophecy of "a million men leap
ing to arms between sunrise and sunset," and
these million men and the other millions who
would follow them would be comparatively help
less, even with guns In their hands, because of
the lack of that training which distinguishes a
soldier from a citizen.
In every war the United States has engaged
in thousands of lives have been needlessly sac
rificed because of the Ignorance of men and offi
cers alike of military practice. It is not alone
the discipline and training that moulds. the. mob
into the efficient machine, and unifies Its action
so that Us strength la multiplied many times be
cause of the co-ordination of Individual mem
bers, but It !s the subordinate, though tremend
ously Important, knowledge of camp life requi
site to health and the preservation of proper con
ditions that must be Instilled before the volun
teers are fit for the service as soldiers.
These elemental facts have been stated and
restated, yet for some reason the pacifists refuse
to recognize them. If we are going to have an
army for defense, no matter how It Is to be made
up, we must not neglect tbe lesions of experi
ence. The United 8tatee cannot afford to again
face the disgrace that overtook lta army in 1S98.
Gratefully Appreciated
Omaha has finally done something that
meets the approval of an outsider. Harry M.
Bushnell comments In his Trade Review of
Iincoln in commendatory fashion on the manner
in which traffic la handled on the crowded
rtreets of this city and concludes his article with
the following graceful paragraph:
Thi re may be a good many thlnga to crlttclae In
Omaha and there la alwaya a tendency generally to
criticise luxtty In observing laws, but compared with
any other city In thla territory, there la no critlcUm
to be made regarding Omaha and the way It Uvea
up to the stats automobile law and the traffic regu
lations for the safety and comfort of pedeatrlana In
the business center of that city.
At thla time, when most of our friends of
the country press find only occasion for stric
ture and censure In referring to Omaha, these
words from Brother Buahnell shine, as Shakes
peare has it, "like a good deed in a naughty
world." It la so rare a thing. The Bee finds much
Measure In reproducing this complimentary al
lusion and feels Justified In expressing on be
half of tha city end its citizens grsteful appre
ciation. Maybe If some of the critics were to
come to Omaha oftener, they would find more
ti. praise and leas to blame In our ways of doing
President Ernst gave the Improvers' com
mittees some good advice, a hen he suggested they wait until the School board has nsnjed

Women Doctors and War
'Jmraal of America Madloal Aaa'a.
r-n HH prewnt war. In draining tha belligerent coun
X trtee of the1r male population, has naturally
.thrown unwonted reenonaibllltlea on women. In
various calllng..poal1lona from which women had pre
vlounly been rigorously excluded, or to which thy had
been admitted only under proteat, are now being
thrown open, and women are eagerly Invited to enter,
in tha medical profession especially tha demands of
the military service have produced a deficiency In tha
supply of civilian practltlonera which can be remedied
only hy utilising the aervlea of women phyalclana.
The l-ondon correspondent of Tha Journal of tha
American Medical Asaociatton reports that the medical
Joiimala In Great Britain are full of advertlaementa
offering posts to women, and that tha eltuatlon haa
become so acute that a large hospital sent an applica
tion to the secretary of the London Hchool of Medt
clne for Women, "Send ua any women at any aalary."
A dally newspaper alao states, on the authority of the
Ixmdon School of Medicine for Women, that an tn
flrmsry poet In the Whltechapet district, previously
held only by a man at a aalary of H a year anJ
emoluments, la now advertised to open to a woman at
t1,an1 and emoluments.
Thla extreme demand for women, of course, cannot
continue Indefinitely after the close of the war. Ptlll,
for many yeara after the cessation of hostilities. It
wilt probably be literally Impossible to fill all medical
posts with men as exclusively aa heretofore. Not only
will tha medical staffa of the armies In the field re
turn from the front with ranks thinned by the hatarJa
and hardships of war, but also tha younger genoratlon
of men phyalclana will be greatly depleted for a time
by the fact that tha men who ahould now be ao
qulrlng a medical education are aervlng under the flag.
This prospect of a continuance of the demand for
women physicians at least for some yeara. haa caused
a marked Increase In the number of women medical
students. The registration In the Ixndon School of
Medicine for Women haa doubled. Other British medi
cal schools and hospitals are said to be considering
tha admission of women, and one (Charing Cross hos
pital). It la reported, haa already. opened its doors to
women students.
In Germany, according to prese reports. In spite ef
tha absence of the customary numbers of Amerioan.
Russian, English and Swiss women students, the en
rollment of women medical students haa risen from
S74 to tlMl and the entry of German women In the
medical course haa been greatly facilitated by a recent
measure recognising tha diplomas of girls' schools aa
adequate entrance credentials throughout tha empire.
While at the cloae of the war men will tend to
displace women phyalclana again to a greater or less
extent. It may be taken for granted that the old order
will never be reestablished In Its entirety. If there ar
fields of medical work for which women are entirely
unfitted, the fact will have been demonstrated anl
they will be replaced aa speedily as possible; hut If
there are posta which a competent woman may fill aa
well aa a competent man (It la said, by the way, that
even In tha organisation and administration of Red
Cross units women have dona excellent aervlce), it
will b Impossible for conservatism any longer to deny
all opportunity to women. If there Is any department
of medicine to which women are especially adapted,
that fact also will probably have been demonstrated
on a larger scale than haa hitherto been possible. After
the war. In short, there will be a readjustment accom
panied by more or leas friction; but European womeu
phyalclana may undoubtedly look forward In the and to
a fair field, from which old prejudices have been to a
considerable degree eliminated by the pressure of
neeeesslty. It wilt be Interesting to sea what use they
make ef their enlarged - opportunities.

Representative Bartholdt of Missouri tells tha
story of aa old man with a soft, daft look, who aat

Not long ago a man was charged at a country
court with trespassing, and alao with shooting some
pigeons belonging to a farmer.
In giving his evidence the farmer waa exceedingly
careful, even nervoue.- and the lawyer for the defense
endeavored to frighten him.
"Now," ho remarked sternly, remember you're on

CREIOHTON. Neb.. Dec. K.-To the
FMItor of The Pee: Not long ago It was
tha pleasure of the writer to hear an
evangelist of world-wide fame tell tha
"old story." He left no atone unturned
to gain points of vantage which would
break down the ramparts of sin and de
lusion aa It appeared to htm. In the
course of Ms remarks he aald the best
waa none too good for tha Lord. His
arguments were strongly In favor of fine
places of worship. A forgetting of self
wheaj the collection plate was passed was
strongly urged. That this argument was
effective waa evidenced by the fact that
a generous public contributed more than
MOO per day recently to keep the "gospel
ball" rolling. Commendable, Indeed, on
the part of the public and clever of the
evangelist to show what can be done for
the Lord or anybody If we get buay.
Strong arguments ere now being brought
forth to strengthen our army and navy,
the reason for the aamo being patent to
all. There la a great diversity of opinion
here because of expense Involved, with
greet economic questions part of the con
aideratlon. The sum total for "prepared
ness " runs so high In multiplied millions
that It la a serious task for some of us
democrats to figure where we are at In
dollars and cents. ' A southern senator la
quoted as saying that it is treason to talk
agalnut preparedness. Take It for granted
he la right, are we going to barter away
rights of unborn generations, with a
mortgage on their souls, with' a war tax
to aupply present-day demands of thoae
who control armor plate and factories of
munitions, of death-dealing machinery, all
for the sake ef honor, peace, home and
native land? It la said that a man once
died for the etn of the world; Ilia blood

Fine churches may be - right, great

machinery of nations should be sunk

Nebraska Dee. l.-To the Editor of The
Bee: The controversery now going on
between Tumulty, who la presumed to
represent the administration, and certain
officials ef the Catholic church, relative
to the treatment of the church by Car
ranxa, who haa been -recognized by our
government - as the de facto leader In
Mexico, emptiaalsea tha weakneaa of the
administration's Mexican policy; a weak
neaa which has characterized tha policy
from the beginning until the preaent time.
Our nation haa been made the laugh
ing stock of the dignified and civilized
nations of the world because of a con
stant disposition to interfere with- mat
ters entirely domestic in their nature.
It Insisted upon establishing a land re
form In the slater republio and now the
quarrel Is over church reforms; whether
or not one church or another ahall domi
nate and control In Mexico; whether or
not the soldiers of Mexico are treating
the membera of certain churchea and cer
tain religious aects with duo and careful
consideration; whether or not the new
government, which la established by Car
re nia. If he can, ahall guarantee rellglaua
liberty within the borders of Mexico. All
of these questions are entirely doroeaUo
In their nature and without the Pale
of consideration by a sister republio.
Had the administration confined lta ne
gotiations from the start to purely na
tional and International questions; recog
nized that leader who waa able to bring
order out of the chaoa of Mexico and
establish law and order within lta boun
dries; and left the settlement of purely
domestic questions to the Mexican people
themselves, the whole Mexican policy
would not have been the huge Joke that
It now is. PLAN1STA.

OMAHA, Deo. 11. -To the Editor of The
Bee: I was much Interested in Mr.
Scars' article. In which he advocates ex
tending and broadening the mothers' pen
alon, by making a temporary loan to
worthy mothera - without Interest, to bo
paid later on. thereby helping the mother
and child to help tbemselveo.
My husband, because of drink, tost po
sition after position, and aeven yeara ago
deserted me with alx children, the eldest
then IS yeara of age. Necessity com
pelled this boy to leave high school, from
which he would have been graduated in
a couple of months. Both myself and
children worked to save from foreclosure
our modest little home, also another
property on- which my husband had no
claim. He would not alga his name to
borrow or aell unless given half of the
aale price. I waa not entitled to the
mothera' pension because of this p'P
erty, on which I could neither borro nor
sell, although It took every effort to Ineot
payments on same. By getting a dllorce
I would cancel a life maurance whli ha
thought had long since lapsed. AfUr six
yeara of hard struggle and many disap
pointments, and by working each boy a
year after he had finished grade school,
sometimes borrowing money during the
winter, which we paid during the sum
mer, we succeeded In sending four
through hljrh school. The eldest entered
college two yeara ago, and by working
hla way he la doing splendid work.
During the last year aicknea came In a
shocking form, compelling me to send
four of the family to the hospital, two
of which were aerioua operations. I
would have been glad to have been able
to borrow as a temporary relief; also, to
have had means to educate my bqs-s, two
of whom would now have flnlithed col
lege, and would now be In position to pay
dollar for dollar received. ,
I agree with Mr. Sears. Wo do Indeed
need a more liberal and a deeper and
broader way of pensioning the mother
and child, with a lot of common sense
thrown In. Surely, If the mother la wor
thy and entitled to a pension, she should
have more than the small pittance of
only enough to keep body and aoul to
gether and barely relieve temporary dis
tress at most. A mothera pension Is
needed which will build a permanent and
firm foundation for an education, raising
to a higher plane and giving a self-confidence
which will make the child feci
the equal of his fellowmen, thereby mak
ing better boys and girls, better men and
women, and, most of all, aiding and bet
tering humanity.
