Handwriting on the Wall
Washington Foot 1
Herbert Hoover has prepared a little printed
card about food. His idea is to have it hung in
the kitchen of every American home. When the
housewife gazes upon it she is expected to ex
perience a different emotion from that which
clutched the heart of Belshazzar. when he read
the ominous letters of fire traced on the wall of
the banqueting halt. Hoover's card is to spell vic
tory and not defeat Sublimated into much
.smaller compass, he insists that it reads. "Save
the waste and win the warl"
Hoover's card is simple, concise, easy to under
stand, possible of being complied with. He con
verts the unnecessary mouthfuls into thousands
of cattle and tons of bread for the use of the
boys in the training camps and the soldiers on
the firing line. By the mere alchemy of the pro
vident hand the garbage can is robbed of better
material than can be wrested from the mines of
the Klondike. Conservation is converted into
patriotism, thrift becomes a bulwark at home as
well as a potential weapon against the foes of
freedom. The economically devised menu fights
in its courses against the enemy.
It may well be that the thousand and one tiny
savings will determine the issue of the war. Here

Master; "then happy are ye if ye do theml" The

worst of dry rot if not made a working force.
Neat little quotations from Stevenson or Brown
ing look well on the wall. But a kind word or
helpful act in the family is worth a rummage sale
of the whole outfit
Tack the little food card in its place. Read
it daily and observe its precepts. It will then
become the handwriting on the wall to the kaiser,
and we will be healthier, wealthier and wiser as
a nation than ever before.
.( ' - -
- Greece Enters the World War.
Greece has now assumed the character of an
active bellcrrent, ending the only uncertainty
prevailing as to the time of its ultimate participa
tion. That Greece, would enter the war has been
apparent for many months, and since the over
throw of King Constantine it has been sure that
the Hellenes would soon be arrayed on the side
of the Allies. In the sense that they add a large
number of soldiers to a part of the line where
such help is needed, the Greeks will be of great
assistance to the Allies. With a sure base for
operations and almost a million men available for
active" duty, the expeditionary force under Gen
eral Serrail should shortly alter the current of the
war in the Balkans. ' . '
From the diplomatic point of view the pres
ence of the Greeks may add to the complications
already difficult and in some ways delicate. Greece
li some territorial aspirations that conflict with
those of Italy and Serbia. These points, long in
dispute; will not be abandoned, although they may
be held in suspension for the time, as even diplo
mats are required to catch the hare before
Greece's move at present is of greatest impor
tance, as it makes available a quarter of .a million
of men for use where they should be of greatest
service. Our own burden is increased to the ex
tent that AmeYica will be expected to supply mu
nitions for the Greek army. The dispatch of a
commission from the government to make
arrangements in this country is already an
nounced. The Balkan campaign, already being
pushed with some vigor, must take on greater
Hats Off to Dei Moines!
The Bee freely gives space in another column
on this page to a letter from the director of the
Greater Dei Moines committee taking exception
to some of the references we have made to Des
Moines in our discussion of the location there of
the army cantonment for this district. We have
only the kindliest feeling for Des Moines and
its energetic and enterprising people and concede
that the location of the cantonment there is tfie
best possible testimonial to their alertness in seiz
ing every opportunity promising advantage.
The Bee's allusion to. Des Moines' railway
facilities, which apparently struck the discord, it
must be understood, were by comparison with
Omaha's, and the accuracy of our claim for the
superiority of Omaha is plainly conceded even
though Des Moines may insist that its railway
facilities are "more than ample to meet demands."
What we asserted, and what we still assert, is
that had Omaha had full consideration1 it would
be found to more than match the military facili
ties offered by Des Moines,' which Des Moines
feels convinced offset our superiority in railway
Be that as it may, the water has run by the
mill arid we hope Des Moines will satisfy all
expectations in taking care of the soldiers in
training, a task which we confess we are disap
pointed was not devolved upon Omaha. In truth,
if Omaha could not 'have the cantonment we do
not know of another place we would prefer to
see it located than Des Moines.
Silver in Pursuit of Wheat.
Silver, handmaid of commerce and "pale and
common drudge 'tween man aid man," is begin-,
ning to show such signs of vivacity and sprightly
ness as entitles it to front page attention. Months
ago the upturn in the price of silver was referred
to as one of the results of war conditions, but
within the last few weeks the white metal has
mounted rapidly and is now hurrying along, evl
dently bent on overtaking its old running mate
wheat. The white metal has little prospect of
attaining the eminence reached by the grain, but
the present quotations are much nearer the
"sacred ratio" than have been current in many
years. This activity is due to several causes, one
of the principal being the use of a large amount
for subsidiary coinage in the countries now at
war. Silver also is being more extensively em
ployed in arts and industry, a natural' outcome
of the extraordinary "prosperity" that has at
tended disturbed conditions. Whatever the rea
son, the advance in price of silver is welcome in
the Rocky mountain region, where many mines
are taking on new life because of the better mar
ketor their output.
Conservation on a Practical Basis.
The program of an Omaha hotel for its can
ning campaign tends to put the conservation of the
food crop on a practical as well as an efficiency
basis. Its management invites housewives who
are skilled in making preserves, jams and jellies
and other such dainties from fruits and vegetables
to enter into contracts to do the work on a whole
sale scale. The hotel will, furnish the material
and even agrees to provide the kitchen for those
who have not the facilities at home, the woman to
contribute the skill and knowledge and do. the
work The novelty of this proceeding is well bal
anced by its apparent good sense and practicality.
Co-operation of the hotel management and the
housewives will produce results in the form of a
store of comestibles for the big caravansary, will
provide profitable employment for the culinary
acquirements of the women folks who enter the
.combination and finally will make sure tha much
of the rr-sent bountiful yield of delicious fruit is
conserved for the delectation of the guests this
comi ig winter. Any way it is viewed, the plan
seems a food one. V '
Minimum Stature for the Army.
Lowering the minimum standard of stature
and weight for enlistment in the army will admit
many who have been rejected solely because of
their physical proportions. This move has not
been taken because of shortage in men, but in
recognition of the established fact that men of
small stature are not necessarily disqualified. A
healthy man of five-foot-one is just as desirable
as the giant of six-foot-two, and will make quite
as serviceable a soldier. Vigor, endurance and
mental capacity, the. principal requisites for a
modern first-class fighting man, are not at all de
pendent on bulk and sheer brute strength is less.
-than ever a determining factor in the battle line.
Xhe little man, when properly trained and duly
inured, is as capable of service as his bigger
brother. The revision of the rule downward so as
to give the midgets a chance at the "line" will
prove popular, and produce many more .good
soldiers. . -.
The illusions and emotional outbursts of suf
frage pickets is the common affliction of the one
idea class. . They appear unable to grasp the fact
that the country has 'more urgent business on
hand and no time for imaginary ills. '

By Frederic J. Haskin
Akron, O., July 15. There are two kinds of
farms in this country. The common and usual
sort is a piece of land from which some citizen is
.more or less successfully making a living. The
other kind of farming, which seems to be on the
increase, is a rich man's amusement. In it profit
is generally no object,; expenditure is almost un
limited. The farm of Ohio C. Barber, a wealthy match
manufacturer, which is located a few miles from
this city, is typical of this latter class of farm.
Mr; Barber keeps some 2,000 pigeons apparently
for the sole purpose of having the right kind of
squabs for breakfast every morning. He raises a
thousand or so pheasants a year merely for the
pleasure of looking at them, so far as an inquirer
can determine. He has the largest barn in the
world, where the most valuable cow in the world
dwells elegantly in a steam-heated and1 well venti
lated stable. He has a flock of some 20,000 white
ducks which he raises for the market, but, accord
ing to his help, he raises them so luxuriously that
each duck costs him about 25 cents more fo raise
than he gets for it.
Here is the largest, herd bf, thoroughbred
Guernsey cattle in the country a herd absolutely
free from disease and of the very best breeding.
The farmer who buys a bull from the Anna Dean
farm improves the quality of his dairy herd. Like
wise the man who buys a setting of White Leg
horn eggs from this establishment gets the right
kind of a start in the chicken business. From a
dozen different states the graduates of the agri
cultural colleges come here in the summer to
work as farm hands and see the processes of scien
tific farming applied. The whole farm U divided
into departments, and there is a trained man over
each department, each of whom strives to operate
his department in the most efficient manner
If you wish to see this model farm you will
be given a pass made out on a special form which
states that the owner will not be responsible if
you get hurt, after which you are turned loose to
find the various department heads for yourself.
Each of these will snow you ail in his charge' and
talk to you about his work as long as you will
listen. He is a specialist of the most specialized
sort. Mr. Pearson, the pigeon man, for example,
has no concern on earth but the welfare of his
2,000 pigeons, including Homers, Royal Whites,
Italian Runts (which are the largest variety
known) and Buff Empresses. Mr. Pearson will
show you with pride his system of band mating,
which, he says, is the secret of successful pigeon
raising. It appears that pigeons are very sensi
tive and temperamental birds in the matter of
domestic relations. If you turn loose a iot of
them in a loft most of them will pair off, but a
few bachelors and maids will remain unattached.
These will be a perpetual source of disturbance,
which prevents the proper raising of the young
birds. One of the unattached mates, for example,
will lure a hen pigeon away from her nest and
start an establishment of his own. The irate right
ful mate will promptly destroy it. A feud will be
started which will seriously limit the productivity
of the whole loft. The proper way, therefore, is
to have a large assortment of little colored bands.
As soon as a pair of pigeons have definitely mated
and settled down to housekeeping they are
banded with the same colors, and when all that
seem suited to the domestic life are so' mated
the odd birds are femoved from the loft.
The pigeon will not easily submit to selective
breeding. They mate according to affinity, and
when it is desired to mate certain birds in order
to propagate their good points they have to be
confined together in special "compulsory mating
cages." Even then propinquity does not always
do the work. Some of them will remain sulky
celibates until they are released again.
After leaving Mr, Pearson you will call upon
Mr. Linder; who has charga of 12,000 Whit Leg
horns and incidentally of a pack of four' Great
Dane dogs, lean and powerful as panthers, who
.guard the poultry houses at night. Mr. Linder's
brother is the gamekeeper and raises pheasants,
just as they are raised on the great estates in Eng
land. Several hundred of these birds are kept in
a strip of woodland, where they made a splendid
picture; That is about all. They are neither shot
nor sold regularly, although occasionally when
they become too numerous they are turned ove
to the state for the purpose of stocking the woods.
These Mongolian pheasants are now an abundant
game bird in several parts of the United States.
The Guernsey herd is the pride of the farm.
There are several hundred of these most aristo
cratic cattle, and it is said to be the largest herd
of pure-bred Guernseys in the world. The milk
that they produce is so rich and yellow that it
sells for several cents a quart more than any other
milk. Yellowness, the keeper of the herd explains,
is the greatest selling point in milk, although it
does not prove anything about its nutritive value.
The right way to inspect milk is to look at the
bottom of the bottle and see how rnucji dirt is
in it. But there are few housewives who ever
think of doing so.
You wilt also learn from him the points of
good dairy cattle. The most important thing is
"room for hay." An enormous belly, in other
words; ft the unlovely attribute foV which the
dairy stockmen breed. '
It takes a long day to go all over the Anna
Dean farms to inspect the rich grain fields, the
farm of twelve acres under glass, where great
bunches of grapes ripen in the winter time and
millions of flowers bloom; to see the champion
Belgian stallion, the truck gardens," the "mansion,"
which is said to contain a hundred rooms an 1 from
which the millionaire sallies forth at 5 o'clock
in the morning to inspect his premises. 1 ,
The place is not beautiful. There is not enough
woodland and water. But it gives a tremendous
impression of the reeking fatness of the earth,
of what the bounty of nature may be made by
millions. It also gives the impression of some
thing tutv American, or at least at variance with
American traditions this giant farm which is the,
home of hundreds of men and women and chil
dren who live in tenant houses, own nothing and
speak awesomely, of "the mansion."

Wythe M. Parka.
Rear Admiral Wythe M. Parks, who holds the
important post of general inspector of machinery
of the United States navy, has a record of forty
years of service, the most of it in connection with
the bureau of steam engineering of the Navy
department. Admiral Parks was born at Norfolk,
Va., in 1856 and entered the navy as an assistant
engineer in 1877. During the war with Spain he
served on the Miantonomoh. The nexfycar he was
transferred to the line as lieutenant commander. In
1901-08 he was on duty with the bureau of steam
engineering; from 1908 to 1910 he was stationed
at the New York navy yard, and during the three
years beginning in 1910 he was a member of the
naval examining board. In 1913 he was made gen
eral inspector of machinery for the navy with the
rank of rear admiral.
Rear Admiral Walter McLean. U.S.N., whose
career in the navy has been varied, by many ex
periences beyond the ordinary routine, was born
sixty-two years ago in Elizabeth, N. J. He was
appointed to the naval academy by President
Grant in 1872 and graduated four years later. In
1882, following the conclusion of a four-year tour
of duty on the Asiatic station, he made a trip
across Siberia and Russia from Nagasaki, Japan,
to Moscow. In the war with Spain he was senior
aide on the staff of Commodore Dewey. In. 1914
he was given command of a division of the At
lantic fleet and the following year he was placed
in charge of the Norfolk navy yard. As is the
custom in the United States navy. Admiral Mc
IkVan has specialized in order to bring most effec
tive service as an expert to the navy, and, in his
case, it has heen in the field of ordnance and

Des Moines and the Cantonment.
Des Moines, la., July 16. To the
Editor of The Bee: We very much
regret that in your editorial discus
sion of the location of the thirteenth
cantonment . you find it necessary to
say things derogatory to the city of
Des Moines. i
We may not have as many double
track main line railroads as Omaha,
but when it comes to railway facili
ties they are more than ample to meet
any demands that can be made
upon us. '
When It comes to military facili
ties, with two government rifle ranges
and one of the finest regimental posts
in the United States already located
in Des Moines, we are in position to
match any of our competing cities. .
In justice to ourselves it is only
proper to say that we refrained en
tirely from any attempt at using po
litical influence. We depended entirely
upon a business presentation of our
city. When, the army board visited
us we then had written options that
we could close any minute on all the
necessary land. We had every trans
portation detail worked out and backed
by tho best operating officials in this
section. We had the matter of water
supply entirely worked out and had
expert advisors to back us up on our
claims. We had the sewage matter
entirely worked out and were able to
back our showing with experts.
We are greatly pleased with our
wonderful good fortune and our abil
ity to land the camp for our city. We
regret that our good fortune has
caused some of our neighboring cities
to make statements concerning us that
are not borne out by facts. We do
regret that a newspaper of the influ
ence and standing of The Bee should
say that we are "a one-trackj-branch-line
town." RALPH BOLTON.

The attorney who asks such ques
tions is evidently tarred with the same
kind of copperheadism that was
shown by Vallandingham in the civil
war, and he and all his treason-spouting
kin should receive the same treat
ment that was given Vallandingham
when he was trust out of the country.
I am not a vindictive man, but I would
like to see the extreme penalty for
treason inflicted upon some of these
traitors infesting the country. There
are only two kinds of people in the
country now Americans or traitors.
