Song On the Warpath
The War department is getting out a book of
songs for our troops to sing in the trenches and
on the march in France. General Bell is quoted
at authority for the statement that singing short
ens the weary mileage for the footsore, burdened
infantryman. Every military camp has found
itself sooner or later a nest of singing birds. So
prone are the Italian soldiery in the Alps to "be!
canto" that often they have to be warned in the
face of the enemy that song, as well as the live
thunder of the poet's description, leapa "from
peak to peak the rattling crags among," and
wakes betraying echoes. General Bridges, of the
British commission, which came to this country,
tells how he once had hard work to set anme
iatigued British stragglers out of St. Quentin,
when an overwhelming force of Germans was ap
proaching. Finally he had the inspiration (he
was then a major), to procure a toy drum and a
whistle, and to this music he and a trumpeter

London on their way to the front are accustomed

' in his mental kit must have a swinging simplicity
of form and the sympathetic appeal of the ele
mental sentiment that makes the whole world kin.
June Crop Estimate Encouraging.
Crop estimates contained in the June report
from the Department of Agriculture are much
more optimistic in their nature than any sent out
this season. The department experts now figure
that the total wheat yield will exceed that of last
year, although it still will be behind the five-year
average. On the basis of 600,000,000 bushels for
home requirements, which is admittedly liberal,
the estimate shows 56,000,000 bushels free for
export. When the Canadian aurplus is added and
due allowance for economical food administra
tion at home is made the probabilities of meeting
the European demand are appreciably brightened.
Rye is to be considerably increased and barley
and oats likewise show great advance over last
year's crops, indicating general sowing and fa
vorable start for these cereals, all available for
food. Apples and peaches also promise to ex
ceed in yield last season's return and other food
crops are yet to be given consideration. Nothing
in this must be taken as excuse for relaxation of
effort to produce, but it does afford encourage
ment to those who have made such efforts to
meet the food emergency. Give our farmers a
chance and the world will not go hungry.
Emma Goldman a Modern Marvel.
Astonishing as it is that Emma Goldman
should be permitted to utter her covert treason,
it is even more astonishing she should have hear
ers. This disciple of and successor to Johann
Most, apostle of free love, anarchy and disorder,
has learned by experience just how far she can
go in her tirades and still keep out of jail. Her
less iadept imitators are sure to overstep the
bounds and encounter the grief that is avoided by
the crafty woman. Her doctrine leads to destruc
tion, to social and moral chaos as Surely as water
runs down hill She is typical of the whole roster
of "internationalists," or whatever they may call
themselves, who prate of "human brotherhood"
and undertake to seduce men from the path of
duty. The physical safety of these men and
women themselves depends utterly on the very
law they so ostentatiously profess to scorn. ' Even
Emma Goldman appealed to the New York police
and scolded them for not having giving her better
protection from the soldiers who interrupted her
meeting, while the most blatant of them never
fails to run to the written constitution and the
statutes of the country for his "rights" when
brought to book by an outraged community.
Emma Goldman is a modern marvel, in that
she has so long succeeded in evading even the
mild rule of the United States. In Germany she
would have been long ago suppressed as a public
nuisance. Her present dupes are either unwise
or selfish, whose hope to escape service will be
dashed. The limit of toleration for this element
of our citizenship has almost been reached.
Chinese Farmers and American Farms.
One of the proposed steps for relieving pos
sible lack of farm labor in the United States dur
ing the war period is a removal of restrictions
against the Chinese and the importation of a con
siderable number of farm hands from that coun
try. In support of this it is argued by one of the
enthusiastic advocates that the Chinese farmer is
far superior in ability to the American. This
statement rests on the fact that the agriculture of
China, fifty centuries old, is intensified to a degree
unknown in this country, and results that would
astonish our husbandmen are there commonly
achieved as 'a matter of national preservation.
So much of the argument as rests on the abil
ity of Chinese to successfully manage his agricul
ture on hid own scale will be accepted at its face
value. The trouble would come when he is asked
to adapt his methods to farm operations of the
magnitude familiar in America. The skimping of'
land, the crowding of crops, the attention given
to individual plants or even to the separate stalks
of plants, habitual with the Chinese, and possible
only because each farmer has comparatively few
growing things to care for, would be ridiculous
under the conditions that prevail here. It doubt
less is true the farmer who has nursed his seeds
and their growth so tenderly as is required in
crowded China may have in the course of an hun
dred or more generations acquired a knowledge
of plant life and habits beyond the grasp of his
American compeer. But this is not all there is to
farming, and the man who is accustomed to as
siduously tending a procession of crops on a tract
of ground the size of a hall bedroom might find
his experience and lore equally knocked askew
were he asked to project them on the scope of a
forty-acre lot, not to speak bf the wide-spreading
farms known in the west.
The Chinese farmer is entitled to great respect
for the wonders he achieves at the expense of
patience beyond Yankee ken, but it would take
him too long to adjust himself to our distances,
and the emergency would be over before his use
fulness were developed. '
Loosening Bonds on Export Trade.
One of the earliest effects pf the entrance of
the United States into the war is to loosen certain
bonds that have restricted our export trade. Much
inconvenience has been experienced by shippers
because of delays in connection with regulations
adopted by the belligerents, and which held up
shipments, whether destined for neutral ports or
otherwise. These regulations have been submit
ted to by American exporters with whatever
patience they might summon, but now it is ex
pected most if not all will be removed. In fact,
quite a few of the most onerous have already been
so modified that getting a shipment out of the
country is almost as easily achieved as before the
war. The fact that the United States is now as
much concerned in preventing communication
with the Germans as its allies will serve to guar
antee the intent at least of the shipper, and thus
relieve him of the additional supervision to which
he has been subjected, and may operate to ensure
that, barring submarine danger, goods will here
after reach their destination. At any rate, better
days are expected by those who are engaged in
the foreign trade.
At last, after a ten years' struggle with private
bankers, both .houses of the Illinois legislature
has passed a bill providing for state regulation
and supervision of all banks without national
charters. Selfish private bankers, organized and
aggressive, defied the state administration and
challenged its power to put the bill through. Leav
ing out of account a shameful record of public
robbery under the guise of banking, the open
threat of private bankers to prevent legislation
constituted a challenge to honesty that could not
be ignored. Honesty won. ' '
Railroad men are inclined to raise the ante a

The Eyes oj War
By Freuertc J. Hun.in
Washington, June 8. The Federal Bureau of
Standards, of the Department of Commerce, will
be able to supply the needs of the American army
in the matter of optical glass. This is a matter
of the very highest importance, and represents
a distinct triumph for the bureau in a technical
and scientific way. The manufacture of high
grade lenses is one of the most complex, delicate
and difficult tasks imaginable. Until the out
break of the war, the highest degree of perfec
tion in optical glass was attained only in Ger
man and Austrian factories.
It was a part of the world's system of scien
tific production before the war for each nation
to specialize along particular lines. Thus, Ameri
can instruments of precision were probably the
best made anywhere. In the field of optical in
struments, especially optical glass, Germany and
Austria led, and this leadership gave Germany
an immense advantage in the early days of the
war. But the last three years have proved that
each nation which makes war must be prepared
to supply itself with every essential of warfare.
The Bureau of Standards has brought its work
to a point where America can meet the exacting
requirements of the army for optical glass.
Nowhere is the remarkable development of
finely made glass lenses more beautifully shown
than in the aeroplane camera. These cameras are
literally the eyes of the army. Every foot of the
battle-ground and the territory behind it is photo
graphed scores of times a day. These photo
graphs are made by men flying 5,000 and 10,000
feet above the ground level at a speed of eighty
miles an hour or more, and they are as clear
and distinct as the cabinet photo of ten years ago.
Only an expert in optical instruments can ap
preciate the triumph of science represented by
the lenses of these cameras. A simple lens, which
will make a photograph of a sort has no less
than five separate and distinct factors of error,
and would snow nothing but a blur if used under
conditions much less trying than those of aero
plane photography. In order to overcome the
sources of error it is necessary to combine
glasses of different chemical composition in such
a way that each glass exactly neutralizes the
error of the others. The composition of such
glasses must be calculated to the minutest frac
tion. The glasses must be cooled, annealed,
ground and polished until they are accurate down
to the finest point that human instruments can
Some of the great military cameras in use
on the western front make pictures seventeen
inches by twenty inches. Such cameras have
lenses with what is known as thirty-six-inch focal
length that is, the lens is placed a yard distant
from the sensitive plate. This is necessary in
order that objects on the ground may stand out
as large as possible. The longer the distance
from lens to plate, the more useful are the photo
graphs from the military point of view. But in
order to combine this long focus with speed, it is
necessary for the lens to be very large, and each
increase in size of the lens increases many times
the difficulty of casting and grinding it accurately.
The lens on such a camera may be as much as
six inches in diameter. It must be so perfectly
made that this great block of glass, combined of
different elements, casts a sharp clear image of
the scene below on every part of the photo
graphic plate. ,
Most of the aeroplane cameras are smaller In
size than this, on account of the difficulty in
handling the big plates. These smaller cameras
take pictures of such a sharpness that they may
be enlarged without loss of detail. The weight is
also a factor. It is said that some of the larger
cameras weigh as much as 200 pounds. This limits
considerably the height to which the aeroplane
can rise, and exposes the observer to greater
danger from shell-fire. Specially constructed aero
planes are being used to carry these big cameras,
equipped with devices to eliminate vibration.
An army photographer may make 300 pic
tures in a single aeroplane flight, and there are
hundreds of photographers attached to the aero
plane divisions of each army. Thus thousands
of pictures are brought back daily from over the
enemy's lines. These pictures, along with what
the observer sees through his field glasses, are
the real basis for military operations.
The signal corps of the American army faces
an unusually difficut problem in war photography
in laying its plans for a possible defence of Ameri
can territory. This is due to the lack of military
maps of American soil. It is comparatively easy
for a staff officer who has a large-scale and de
tailed military map of a given region to take a
number of photographs of that region and bring
the situation up to date from day to day. Lack
ing the large-scale military map, the problem be
comes more difficult. In such a case, the map
must literally be drawrt from photographic data.
It is said that our signal corps ana engineer oi
ficers, recognizing this problem, have worked out
a most efficient system for mapping a new region
entirely from aeroplane photographs. Details of
this system are, of course, not available, but it is
said that new apparatus of great value has been
invented and constructed by American experts.
The camera is only one instrument of modern
warfare in which a highly perfected optical glass
is the essential factor. Field glasses and tele
scopic rifle-sights are other common examples.
The Germans had a great superiority in these
instruments in the beginning of the war, but the
allies quickly put themselves on an equal footing.
The remarkable performance of long-range
naval guns is based on optical instruments of
beautiful delicacy and precision. Naval range
finders are sometimes built more than thirty feet
long. Periscopes as used both on land and sea
are based on the use of high-grade glass, though
the need for great perfection in these instruments
is not so pressing.

Rifts of gayety penetrate the gloom of war

Nonunion Painter's Views.
Bellevue, Neb., June 8. To the
Editor of The Bee: An advertisement
In The Bee June 8; by. the Business
Men's association, under the caption,
"Omaha's Labor Strike; How It
Started," was read by me with a great
deal of interest, for the reason that,
though I am a nonunion mechanic, I
am one of the sufferers of the present
strike, or lockout, caused, more by the
Dezettel-Coutts propaganda than by
the working conditions in force in
Omaha and contiguous territory dur
ing the last few years. "Unionism"
doesn't necessarily spell force nor con
tract breaking, though it occurs to me
that is the way some of our crafts,
who are organized, denne it at present.
I have been a painter and paperhang
er over twenty years and during the
first few years after becoming a Jour
neyman mechanic, belonged to the
union, and only turned in my card
when I learned that the spirit of
unionism was being prostituted to the
protits of a few officials, who knew
so little of the tenets of "pure union
ism" that they would not have recog
nized It had they met it outside the
confines of their offices or away from
the polished 'mahogany, where labor's
"battles" have been fought, and not
lost but sold. I thoroughly believe in
organization, not only of business men,
but of labor, for in union is strength,
and I believe that if labor organiza
tions divorced themselves from the
Idea that subterfuge and force were
the proper weapons to use in seeking
better working conditions and pay,
and confined themselves as organiza
tions to a discussion of conditions
among themselves, Instead of being
led by auch men as Dezettel and
Coutts, who are not working in the
interests of the different crafts, that a
good working plan could be had with
the master craftsmen whereby strikes
ajid lockouts would be unnecessary
If, aa printed, It la true that the
painters in. their "working rules" de
manded "restriction of output," It is
enough to condemn them, as It is ap
parent to anyone familiar with this
particular craft, that to hold a me
chanic down below his normal work
ing speed, is to hold him below his
normal quality of work, for a me
chanic does his best work at his own
speed, unregulated by others. And to
penalize a man for working that gait,
even though more speedy than his im
mediate fellow workman is suicidal. A
pace setter ia a rare bird, but if you
control output you must have a pace
setter to hold men who are Just below
their natural speed and close to the
amount set down as right under re
striction of output rules. Restrict out
