Doing Our Damnedest1
St. LaoU Ctlvba-Dcmaerat'
It is not a pretty word. We would not use
it in aesthetie verse, even in that of the free and
unlimited coinage now so unhappily prevalent. It
is not current in polite society, although at timet
- it breaks its way into the conversation of the so
cially elect It has no place in the literature of
refinement nor in the rhetoric of the chautauquas.
But nonetheless it is a word of force and virility,
expressing a meaning of vigorous thoroughness
no other Word in the language will convey so
fully and satisfactorily. - One of the high lights
of the literary world, one of the masters in the;,
fine art of English diction, particularly distin-
guished for his nice discrimination in the use of
words, hat just used it in the public print used
it although an Englishman, in reference to us
and used it in a Way that we appreciate.
"The United States," says Arnold Bennett, in
the London Daily Newt, "will do its damnedest
in this war" . What other superlative, in or out
of the dictionary, could have expressed so much?
What other word could have conveyed so com
pletely and forcibly the s;nse of giving all that
it within us . of men,, of money, of brains, of
strength, of spirit and of enthusiasm, in the pros
ecution of 'the war to a successful termination?
We have but one fault to find in Mr. Bennett's
use of the adjective and that is its application in
the future tense. The distinguished author is de
prived, by the remoteness of his residence, of the
tacts which are now living flesh and blood to us.
He is seeing us with the eyes of faith and under
standing which yet lack the knowledge of tremen
dous events. He is expressing a profound reli
ance upon our potentiality and does not yet know
that it is already unloosed and actively potent He
does not realize that we are "doing our damned
est" now, right now. It will take some time for
the world to realize the full meaning of all that
it being done in the United States at this mo
ment Evert we who are m the midst of it and
who are individually and collectively bending our
utmost endeavors toward the triumphant con
summation of a common purpose do not fully
comprehend the vastness of our labor. But we
do know that we are "doing our damnedest" this
minute and the coming days will reveal the ful
fillment of the faith Mr. Bennett has so vigorously
Bread Saving and Bread Prices.
Admonitions to American householders tq save
bread are Well in point but, if full response is to
be had, something more far-reaching is expected
of the food administrator. Breld prices in this
country are higher than ever before and while
bakers have been saying from time to time that a
reduction is coming, nothing has been done to re
lieve the consumer.
In London, by official order, a four-pound
loaf of bread sells for 9 pence, or 18 cents in our
money, and a one-pound loaf for 2yi pence or 5
cents. Here in Omaha, for example, the loaf of
bread Is sold at the rate of fourteen ouhces for
10 cents or a little more than double the London
price. In London the price of flour is fixed at 50
shillings or $12 for a sack of 280 pounds is
against the same price here for 196 pounds or
eighty-four pounds less. The government price
for the wheat out of which the flour is made is
practically the same per bushel in both countries.
Further the British bread loaf must be not less
than twenty-four hours old and full weight when
sold; in insisting on buying "fresh" bread, Ameri
cans are paying for quantities of excess moisture
that is Neither healthful nor economical.
The bread problem confronting our food ad
ministrator is plainly riot confined to inducing
people to abstain from eating the bread after it
is put upon the table.
Punishment for Willful Slackers.
Eighteen young men have been indicted by
a federal grand jury at Omaha for failure to re
spond under the call of the selective draft law
and how stand in imminent danger of the severe
penalties provided by that law. Most, if not all,
of these are victims of bad advice, having lis
tened to the gabble of sapheaded agitators whose
ideas of government are indefinably hazy. Pun
ishment Will be inflicted on them because of then
defiance of the law, but the men who persuaded
them into peril do not stand in the dock beside
them. These will escape the penalty of the law,
but they deserve to be dealt with in some way
that will sensibly impress them with a notion of
their responsibility. The tendency to insist on
private privilege taking precedence over public
need and failure to recognize the right of the
nation oyer the individual, both in person and
property, is, bringing many close to the prison
doors. Slackers, no matter what their station or
rank, are to (be dealt with as public enemies.
Bavaria and Prussia,
The act of the Bavarian king in ' tending a
separate antwef to the pOpe't peace note may have
no especial significance, but it it open to the in
terpretation placed on it by some, who hold that
it shows the progress of the German Catholic
coalition. Aside from the fact that Bavaria has
Stood aloof from Prussia on some important po
litical matters, the difference in religion still it a
potent factor the relations between the two
kingdoms. The terms ot the king's reply to the
pope an not yet liven out put the fact that it
was sent at all is of moment although it may be
in general tenor identical with that tent from Ber
lin. Months ago speculation coupled Austria, Ba
varia and Wurtemburg in connection with a
scheme for the establishment of a Catholic state
in central Europe, gossip to which recent events
give strong color of probability. Little doubt ex
ists that the pope's deep concern in the war is
heightened by his interest in the church in these
states, an, interest that will not be lessened by
the course of King Ott6 n this matter. The his
toric jealousy between' the north and south Ger
mane hat been revived and intensified by the
progress bf the war and the readjustment yet to
come is certain to be In tome way affected by thjs
feeling. It is not probable ttje actual fighting will
be in any way modified by the internal politics
of the empire, but the present course of events' is
such as to invite studjous attention. .
Confirm In); git Historical Incident
ThcQdAre ftobtevelt, speaking at Chicago, re
lated the story of his personal, part in one of
the encitlnt epilodes of recent American history,
the neir appr6acH to war with Germany over
Venezuela, German aggression at that time was
ndtorleus, effort it commercial conquest in South
America having for the time given, an impulse
tq a determination to colonize there if possible.
Feelings toward the United States on part of the
kaiser still had some tincture of the Samoan and
Philippine Incidents and had not been especially
softened by reason of certain differences over
tariff and other commercial policies. The kaiser
found, h6wever, the United States as firmly de
voted to the Monroe doctrine as did England
a few years before, when President Cleveland in
terposed and saved Venezuela from attack.
Latin American countries are coming to nore
fully realize the great services we have performed
for them in the last ninety years. Originally in
tended at aft answer to the policy of the Holy
Alliance, the Monroe doctrine has not only pre
served free government in America, but hat re
sulted in the overthrow of the last vestige of
monarchy or despotism in the New, World. While
the United States declined at the outset to enter
into ' combinations or alliances for offense am)
defense, it has steadily stood as a strong and
staunch 'protector of the weaker nations of the
wettern world in their efforts to establish gov
ernment of the people on firm footing. The only
interference in their internal affairs on our part
has been in the interest of order and to protect
the people from irresponsible dictators, such, as
Castro, At the same time w? have accepted a
charge that hat continually exposed us to war as
a result of 6ur devotion to the doctrine, a. fact
which is nOt fully recognisable by the nations so
benefited. ' , j
Self-government among these nations has fol
lowed under our influence, with splendid growth
and prosperity, a tribute to the spirit and policy
of Americanism, to characteristically exemplified
by Roosevelt's course with Germany in 1903.
The kaiser in replying to the papal peace
note asserts that his "principal and most sacred
task is to Secure and maintain peace." Violating
treaties, making a charnel house of Belgium,
bombing Of hospitals and slaughtering women
and children on unarmed ships, illuminate the
character of hia peaceful intentions. '
From the commonplace to heights of aristo
cracy spans the leap of the railroad pass. The
dignity it has, reached in a few years amazes
former admirers, and draws from the state rail

culated to increase the pain of wrecked friendship.

The Dwindling Skirt
' ByFre eric J. Has ii
Washington, Sept. 26. The skirt Is passing.
Already economic necessity has reduced it to half
its former size. Flounces, ruffles and pleats, so
dear to the hearts of our grandmothers, are not
permitted by the war fabric censors. And now
industrial safety forbids the skirt.
A large American accident insurance company
recentlyissued a warning to women employed in
factories not to wear skirts and frills. These, it
assured the women, were the best answer to the
question, "Why are women victims of so many
more industrial accidents than men?"
"Just consider the difference in dress between
the male and female worker," suggested a rep
resentative of the company. "Men wear the
snugly-fitting overall and jumper, which reduce
to a minimum the chance of injury due to clothing
being caught in moving machinery. Women, on
the other hand, usually wear full skirts and be
frilled shirtwaists and in addition they often wear
their hair so that strands of it fly about."
At least this was true of the million or more
women employed in manufacturing industries in
this country up to the time of the war. But the
war has changed this. It has changed women.
They have become more serious-minded, more in
dependent. In Europe thousands of women have
left lives of frivolous inactivity to enter muni
tions factories and turn the wheels of war. And
in doing so they have also left their skirts. The
war was about one month old when the women
of Europe went into trousers. -
It was about one 'year old when American
women factory workers started discarding their
skirts in favor of overalls. 'Some employers in
sisted upon it as a safety measure and encoun
tered a storm of shocked opposition. Others
were petitioned to permit the change. In most
Cases new employes, encouraged by the picture
of trousered European women in the movies and
Sunday supplements, wore trousers or overalls
as a matter of course.
The passing of the skirt, however, cannot be
laid entirely at the door of war. Before the war
women were beginning io feel its limitations. It
was all very well for borne use, but a frightful
nuisance when doing anything strenuous, and
women started being strenuous at the beginning
of the twentieth century.' The first reform the
divided riding skirt was not introduced without
a storm of protest Denunciations from the pulpit
Were vociferous; attempts were piade to pass laws
preventing its appearance and moralists fought it
like a plague. But the divided skirt remained,
partly due to the quiet determination of its wear
ers and partly to the influence of medical men,
who deplored the side saddle.
That, of course, was some years ago. Today
the divided skirt has given way to riding breeches
of the most masculine cut and trousers have be
come the standard apparel for women's sports.
At the beaches where the local authorities permit
the skirt has dwindled and disappeared. Wherever
Women have taken up the pursuits of men they
have taken up their clothes. Thus the law of ex
pediency makes and remakes custom.
What primitive man was like can best be de
termined By a study of the primitive tribes which
now populate the earth. From such a study and
from the evidence gleaned from ancient records
it is apparent that the first clothing was not in
vented from any sense of innate modesty in man,
Eopular opinion to the contrary notwithstanding,
lothing was invented for two reasons as a
means of protection against the climate and as a
means of attraction between the sexes. Ani in
tracing its direct origin the first reason was less
important than the last
The Atab$, for inttance, who live in a hot
country, wear a great deal of clothing, while the
Indians of that bleak, icy strip of land known as
Tierra del Fueg wear but the skin of some furry
animal about their shoulders. Clothing for cli
mate, therefore, seems to be a development of
drets rather than its origin.
The impulse to adorn himself, however, must
have been born in man the first time he ever be
held a woman an vice, versa. At any rate, in
primitive tribes all over the world may be found
Various forms of personal adornment for the pur
pose of mutual attraction between the sexes. In
the very early days, before man learned to weave
or sew animal skins, the only means of adorn
ment was shaping the body, Eskimo women
plugged their lips; many tribes tatooed their bod
ies; others wore painted scenes on their chests and
backs and still others raised huge scars to en
hance their beauty. While the average Anglo
Saxon has abandoned these primitive customs,
they still exist Scars are still esteemed by Ger
man students, tatoos by the orientals and women
Of all countries stilt cling to the use of paint
As man grew more talented with the use of
raw materials he began to make and wear neck
laces, wristlets, nose and ear ornaments, toe rings,
head dresses and girdles. Of these the girdles
were the most important, from the modern point
of view, tor from them sprarfg the lines around
the neck and waist The girdle, in fact, is stilt
with us. Skirts and trousers still fasten at the
waist. At civilization progressed and the sub
jugation of woman was made complete she was
compelled to leave her life in the open and re
main in the home. Here the skirt was no handi
cap. Men, however, who led more strenuous
lives, adopted the trousers.
This is largely the situation today, or was
until just recently. But economic conditions,
which have forced women into mines and facto
ries, are also forcing her into trousers. Wherever
women have had to engage in strenuous occupa
tions the skirt has proven inadequate. So for
years the women working in the mines of Bel
gium have worn trousers, as have also the cattle
tenders of Switzerland. Now the world is wit
nessing the greatest Change in the status of
women that has ever occurred in history. The
war has opened up the way of escape from the
household drudgery of the home and women are
taking their places side by aide with men. .
With the change, moreover, has come about a
chante in ideals. The eternal, feminine and the
clinging vine are disappearing even from roman
tic literature. In their place has come a strong,
athletic, independent type of 'woman who is ca
pable of maintaining her hold upon the male even
though she wears trousers. -
Helping Our 'Friends
' St Louit Cloba-Dcmoarat
Food Administrator Hoover makes an appeal
to the people of this country to reduce by one
third their consumption of sugar. In France the
quantity of sugar available is now so small that
the entire population is put on such a small ra
tion that the per capita consumption of sugar is
limited to twenty-one pounds in the course of a
year, while our per capita consumption is and
has long been ninety pounds in a year. What the
food commissioner is asking is that each of us
shall reduce to sixty pounds a year in order to
aid our allies in getting more than twenty-one
pounds, v ., ..- ' ' '
The high value of sugar as food is one of the
Uncontested facta in dietetics. ,. Almost everything
else has been challenged,' but nobody has as yet
arisen to deny the efficacies of sugar in building
flesh and strength and assisting in necessary elimi
nations. But it can he said of sugar, as of every
thing else in the way of foods, that it may be
rssible to get too much of it and that seven and
half pounds of sugar in the course of every
month, if we take our statistics literally, is cer
tainly more than is needed by one person and may
be enough to work injury. Besides, there is the
praiseworthiness of helping our friends who have
far less than enough ot this most necessary arti
cle of diet so much needed to conserve their
strength in fighting an enemy who is now our
enemy aa well as theirs.
s. We have no sugar surplus.' Our supply is not
more than adequate to meet Our normal demand
between now and the new year, if the demand is
kept up. The food commissioner writes: "If our
people will reduce by one-third their purchases
and consumption of candy and sugar for other
uses than preserving fruit which we do not wish
to interfere with, wc can save the French situa
fon."' " "r' ' -:' "4 " ' - '
