Good Idea Push It Along.
The Bee's thanks to our amiable democratic
r ntemporary, the World-Herald, for Its kindly
tnough probably unintentional boost for our
plan to show the Nebrsska voters "how to write
In" the name of Charles E. Hughes on tbelr
presidential primary ballot. The World-Herald
picture man suggests that republicans, who
lavor Woodrow Wilson, should "write In" that
r.tnie and we heartily concur for we do not be
lieve there are many republicans, here or else
where, who want to keep a democratic presi
dent In the White House.
By the same reasoning, however, the World
Herald Is In duty bound to call upon democrats,
who do not wsnt Woodrow Wilson for presi
ding to "write in" some other name on the
blank line provided for that purpose on the
dcmorrstlc primary bsllot, notwithstanding the
fr.rt that tbe name of Woodrow Wilson Is the
only one printed there. We have not the slight
est doubt that there are in Nebraska hundreds
of democrats who prefer Hughes rather than
Wilson to every republican who prefers Wilson
rrtber thsn Hughes.
All The Bee wsnts Is that our voters, re
ffirdless of psrty, shsll express tbelr real
preference for president according to tbe Intent
and purpose of the primary law. If tbey will
do that, rt will only be a question of bow big a
majority will be piled tip for Charles E, Hughes.
Leii Winter Wheat for United States.
The preliminary forecast of the winter wheat
Ci op for the I'lilled States, by the Department
of Agriculture, places tbe total prospective
yield st 455,000,000 bushels, or 200,000,000
ttishcls less than the estimated yield for last
yisr. This change Is due to the abandonment
i f acreage by the farmer, for the sesson Is
gcnerslly favorable. What It pressgeg for the
country st Urge will be the subject of a great
ttesl of speculation. Even with the acreage
and yield of spring whest up to Isst snason's
tecord breaking total, It will mean a serious
shortage In wheat. Tbe billion bushel crop of
191$ left only about a quarter of a billion
bt'shels for ssle abroad, tbe bslsnre being re
fltilred for home consumption. With a prom
ised reduction of 200,000,000 bushels in tbe
t"tal st this time, snd olber conditions tbe
sums, the fsrmers will send to market about
enough wheat to provide for the home rsqulre
iufnts. fleveral ressons might be assigned for
the change; the difficulty In getting the wheat
to market, caused by the dlsturbsnce In ship
ping Incident lo the war; the general level of
prices, which wss fsr below tbe expected figure;
the certainty of a big Increase In the sell
ing price of binding twine; the sisrclty of farm
labor and Its effect on the harvest, all enter
If to the problem, These, hspplly, are not fixed
conditions, snd In time will be sdjusted, but
II o public will feel the shortage In whest yield,
snd the farmer must shoulder his share.
Preparedness and Politics.
Democrats In congress are now seeking to
turn the movement for natlonat defense to psr
llsan advantage. None need he especially sur
prised at this, for It was too much to expect
that tbe leaders of the administration party
would remain more true to their professions
on this point that they have on others. Just
now Secretary Josephua Daniels Is the chief of
fender. H concluded a three-dy sitting be
fore the house committee on naval affairg with
an exhibition of partisan bias that Is almost
Incredible In a cabinet officer. In pretend'ng to
explain and defend his own course, he took oc
casion to criticise the acts of former adminis
trations, and especially to call Into question the
record of Secretary Meyer, whose progrsm was
cut to bits by a democratic congress under pre
tense of economy. This same congress wss
responsible for the biggest total of appropria
tions ever made for carrying on the govern
ment, only exceeded by Its successor, domi
nated by the southern brlgndlets, which went
even farther In spending public money, and did
even less for the navy of the t'nlted Slates.
Six months ago President Wilson pleaded
for patriotic and not partisan consideration of
the country's needs, a plea that was met by the
republicans with perfect frankneHs and pledges
of support. The time since then ttss been frit
tered away In desultory debate, while the ma
jority party In congresa has been laying plans
to make Itself appear as the country's savior.
If the record so far made Is to bo taken as a
basis for Judgment, the democrats are opposed
to preparedness for national defense, and are
afraid to take the responsibility of refusing to
carry out a reasonable progrsm, Secretary
Daniels, In giving his rcattons for modifying the
plana of the general naval board, said the close
of the war would find the nations ready to agree
to a limitation of armament!
The army bills now going through will leave
us Just about where we were In the matter of
land forces, while the navy hill promises to be
come a compromise between the recommenda
tions of the gettersl board and the plans of
Josepbus Daniels and the view of the demo
cratic majority on the natal affairs committee,
a most encouraging outlook for those who aerl
oualy consider the country s unprepared con

Talking of Hughes
Attempt llerkle Mr. Hash.
iloiton Transcript: When the people first begss
to expreas their preference for Mr. Hughe, rapubllctt
and demorratlo politicians forthwith feigned tha belief
that he would decline the nomination for tha prl
dency If It ware offnred him. As the evldancas of his
popularity Increase and his willingness to a-cpt Iho
nomination Is coming everywhere to be taken for
granted, the polltinlans havs entered upon a poll y ol
heckling Mr. Hughea as to whare he stands upon the
Issues of the day. The purpoae of their trl k is plain,
They know they cannot compel him to resign from
ths bench snd enlar tha arena of active candidates
They hops, hnwevar, either to provoke him Into de
clining the nomination In sdvanra er to ralaa In th
mlnda of ths people a reasonable doubt ss to his
It Is tha prlvllrga ef anyone lo oppoce Mr. Hugh
on tha ground that he d' not know his views Tnsl
Is no reason, however, why Mr. Hughe nhould resig;
from tha heneh In order to be free lo announce Ins
views, Ware he an opportunist whose words snd deeds
of todsy contradict his words snd deed of yeatardsy,
he would not be the favorlta for lha presidency th' t
he is. Happily, howsvar, his whole rerord Ift private
and publls life shows him lo he a t-ltlsen whoae Ameri
canism needs neither to b defined nor defended. No
will the hypocritical doubts of the polltklsn who am
opposing his nomlnstlon mlslasd the people Inte dis
trusting their own personsl preference for his lesder
ship. Thsrs is no ground for doubling thst Mr. Hughea
will srrept If nomlnsied, snd there Is no ground fo'
doubting thst he will stsnd firmly upon s plaiforn
embodying tha principles whhh Mr, Uids snd All
Root snd Mr, llorsb have so ,-lsrly snd reuregeou :ly
enunclsled In the senate during the Isst three years
If Mr. Hughes csnnot swept the plstfoim of his party
hs tsn be counted upon to decline Its nomlnsllon. If
the politicians whe sr trying to prsvent his nomina
tion really believe thst Mr. Hughes Is sgstnat prsnsr
edna.s, why do thsy not dsvots their efforts to ths
formulation of a platform declaring for s prngrsm ol
sde.junte natlonsi dafenae ss ths sureat wsy of heed
ing off ths nomlnstlon of ths msn they so fsr?
Tha rl! of Mr. Hughes comes up from tha psopi.
It Is not mssufscturad by the polltlclsns. Hanr than

damsnd for the nomination of s mn they csnnot
Haahea' Pmltloa an Peeaeat laaaea.
Hi. louls (Jlobs-Imoctst: In ths discussions of
th svsllsblllty of Justice Hughea es a republican csn
dldaie for president, much has been ssld ef the iscli
of knowledge of his position on ths political questions
now st lean. Justice Hughes has been s msmber of
th supreme court since 1910 snd during this tlms h
hss bean dahsrtsd by ths trsdlllons of his high offlc
from public utterances upon polltlcsl, snd psrtlculsrt
prtln, auhjecta. Nor hs tha pranant considsratioci
of his imrne In connection wllh th presidency drawn
from him any statement of hla views, publicly or prt.
vstely, But lb records of his polltlcsl srtlvlty during
the yes is In which he wss free, and In duty bound,
lo dlscuns such subjects, rsvesl his stiHud toward
current Issues ss clearly ss If h were speaking now
How does Hughe stsnd on preperedness? Is nstu
rally th fltst nueatlon sskrd, It being uppermost In
lha mind of th peopl. H snssered thst quetion
In ths csmpslgn of IMS whan he ssld: "It Is our con
tant slm lo live In friendship with all nations snd to
reellx th slms of it free government, securs from th
Interruptions of strlf snd ths wsstes of wsr. it is
ntlrely conitnt with these sims, snd It Is our rtuly
to mske sdaut provision for our defense snd to
mslnlsln lbs efficiency of our srmy snd nsvy. And
(his I favor." In lha light of that lime he could
hardly have said mora. Thai, with this attitude In
1!k. h could now be for anything less thsn a full
snd sltoiethcr sufficient prepsrstlon for events thst
later developments hsvs msd possible, Is unhellev.
abl. Justice Hughes' mind Is not of tha weather
cock type. On the contrary, such criticism ss hs
been voiced, Its been sgainst his firmness snU
lensclty of opinion.
Justlrs Hughes Is strongly In fsvor ef proton ion
"A protective tariff," be ssld In ICS), "Is essntisl lo
the Interests of our wage earners," and hs urged st
thst tlms the eppolntment of a tariff commission, "in
order to effect whstever resdjustment may be naces
sary to make the tariff schedules conslstont with th
principles underlying the protective policy." In th
seme campaign, referring to foreign sffslrs, h said.
"Ths republican psrty has maintained tha national
honor, and under Its direction American dlplomscy
has sttalned th highest levels ef honorable purpose
snd distinguished eohlvment."
From urh utterances a these, when governor of
New York, It Is not difficult to discern the present
views of ths Justlr of tha supreme court.

LINCOLN, Neb., April 8-To the Editor
of Th n: My sttentlon hss been

OMAHA, April .-To Iho KdHor of
Th Mm: My eltentlon hss lecantly besn
eslled to th fact that a few 0f tho
residents of Rami Park district arc
objecting to th playground for children
In Ilemls Psrk. Thla plaj ground was
established st th request of th JJml
I'srk District , Improvement club at s
meeting sltended by Mr. Hummel, There
was not a dlsntlng vol. JCvaryone
we pleaad when Mr. Huminal, after
th vot wss taken, promid to estab

been greatly enjoyed by th children
of thst sctlon, vme paopl cannot n
Joy themselves and srs not content to
see others hav a good tlm. This play
ground hss been a great Joy to the
youngsters surrounding th park. The
moat of th people objecting, do not tak
lntret enough In th neighborhood tu
even attend the meeting of th Im
provement olub. I have heard some
of th little folk ssy; "Are wn not
going to hsvs any plsyground this sum
mer? We hope they won't take It away."
it would he a shame to dnr1v thess
llttl folks of tha playground. Thisr Is
no doubt In my mind but that th ob

THE FINISH IS
Endurance is as important in
a typewriter as in an athlete.
Many a runner starts out looking fit, but
after a lap or two, falls behind and is "all in" at
the finish of the race.
So it is with typewriters. Some of them
do good work at the start, but under the strain
of continued use lose the close adjustments
necessary to produce neat, clean cut typewriting.
They fail before they reach the home stretch.
The L. C. Smith 8C Bros, typewriter
will run the ordinary course, come in strong
at the finishand be ready for another race.
One of the reasons for this is the ball bearings
found in all much used parts. Constant use can
only make them run smoother and ''sweeter."
The L. C. Smith 8C Bros, typewriter is
as good at the finish as at start.
