EFFICIENT POLICE ADMINISTRATION.
Signafiziftg ;kmg over the lapervtitoa of
Omahj'i police department, Commiiiioner
Ringer bai laid down as excellent program of
administration," which, however, like all pro
grams, mutt depend on the degree of efficiency
with which it is carried out P.unning the police
department, so far as general policies are con
cerned, ought to be eaiy tnitead of difficult, as
commonly supposed, AH that is needed is strict
discipline in 'the force and an honeit effort to
enforce the laws and ordinances without fear or
favor. If everyone in the same position, is treated
alike, no one has a right to complain, but if
making exceptioni is once begun, to take care
of friends or putt'uh enemies, or placate powerful
influences, there is no (topping point and no way
to avoid trouble. And playing favorites cannot
be tolerated by heads any more than by subordi
nates If we are to have efficient police service.
At the same time, catching bootleggers, sup
pressing itreet walkers, keeping motor traffic
uninterrupted, preserving order in public places,
are not the whole of a police department1! work.
Crimes of violence or cunning are bound to be
perpetrated from time to time and it is necessary
to apprehend and punish the criminals. It takes
experienced police officera to cope with profes
sional crooks, and in this direction it must be
conceded the Omaha police force has already
made an enviable record, which record mutt be

Child Labor Law Held Invalid.
The supreme court of the United ', ate hai
by a divided vote upheld the decision of the dis
trict court of North Carolina, declaring invalid
the Keating child labor law. Two principal points
raised by the opposition to the law were that
It Interfered with the right to contract and with
the control of the parent over the child. The
question of Interstate commerce was brought up
incidentally. It was held by the district court
that congress could not abrogate the right of the
parent to contract for the labor of the child, and
that to exclude from Interstate commerce prod
ucts lito which child labor entered wasi beyond
the lower of congress. All who have watched
the course of labor legislation are familiar with
the ruling of the higher court on these points.
Only a bare announcement of the court'a decision
has so far been published, but the text will be
carefully atudied, as well as the dissenting views
of four judges who were in the minority. It
is not probable that the agencies who have so
long devoted themselves to securing the passage
of this law, which was sent through congress
over the full Influence of the reactionary demo
crats from the eouthern states, will content
themselves with the defeat The effort to secure
protection for the children of the country may
be forced to go over until after the war, but it
will not be abandoned.

One Year of Food Control l r
Demonstration oj, Nation's Loyalty and Volunteer Spirit
Along the allied battleront and tbrough-j
out the allied nations American food is now
being distributed in greater quantities than
ever before. But for the. food this battle-j
front and these nations would not have the
strength to stand op and fight Ffty per
cent of the food for the allies must now be
sent from North America.
In an office at Washington, as plain with
its beaver board wall covering as that of the
superintendent of some third-class mining
camp, there sits from 8:30 a. m. to 7:30 p. m.
daily the man who is chiefly responsible for
this flow of food to the allies. He has, in a
true sense, become food administrator for
the allies as well is food administrator of
the United States, though Herbert Hoover
would be the first to disclaim that distinction;
but In support of it might be cited the fact
that with nim the needs of the allies come
first, as due them for what they have borne
and are bearing; next come the food needs
of the United States. Both must be satis
fied. How have they been satisfied? What has
been accomplished? Every 'American has
contributed to the results, though what these
are has been subordinated to the campaign
for food saving. -It is a fitting time to ask
the question, for it is just a vear since Mr.
Hoover took charge of food conservation,
though the law creating him food adminis
trator was not passed until later.
Take wheat: Owing to the ahortage of
last year's crop we had scarcely 20,000,000
bushels above our normal consumption and
seed requirements. Practically all this had
been shipped by Christmas. Then, in Jan
uary, came the British food commissioner's
urgent call for 75,000,000 bushels before the
new crop, if the allies were to have food
enough to carry on the war. In response to
that call the American people saved 50,000,
000 bushels out of their normal consumption;
it was shipped to Europe, and the war goes
For the last four weeks wheat consump
tion in this country has been 40 per cent be
jow normal. Whole communities have
"sworn off" from wheat, for the pressure of
the allies' needs is now at its highest. In
the list are many churches and lodges; at
the top is an entire state Texas. From
July 1, 1917, to March 31, 1918, America has
exported to its allies 80,000,000 bushels of
wheat and flour, or 124 per cent of the
amount available for export on July 1, while
a year ago, during the same period, we ex
ported to the allies only 51 per cent of the
amount available for export
There is another side in what has been
accomplished in wheat price stabilization.
In the face of the wheat shortage this is
what has been brought about: In May of
last year the difference between what the
farmer got for hia wheat and the wholesale
price of flour was equivalent to $5.68 a bar
rel; in early May of this year the difference
amounted to64 cents. In May, 1917, the
wholesale price of flour at Minneapolis was
$16.75; it was predicted that it would go to
$!0 a barrel, and Higher; in early way oi
this year the price ot flour was $9.80 a bar
rel, a decrease of 41 per cent
Exports of rye and rye flour from the
beginning of the fiscal year, July 1, 1917,
tlirouoh March. 1918. were 32 per cent
larger than last year; of barley 55 per cent
larger and of oats and oatmeal 34 per cent

porting to the allies 50,000,000 pounds of
pork a month. There was even at that time
the menace of a hog shortage. When we
entered the war the high prices offered by
the allies, had increased our exports of pork
to 125,000,000 pounds a month. A severe
cut in our reserve" suppliest, was the result
In 1917, a month before the conservation
program went into effect the export of pork
had fallen to 70,000,000 pounds a month. . In
March of this year the amount of pork ex
ported to the allies amounted to 308,000,000
pounds, more than six times the normal and
50 per cent greater than any previous month
in the last seven years. There is in addition
1,100,000,000 pounds of pork and pork prod
ucts in storage. This is what , "porkless
days" have done.. , '
Our average monthly production of hog
products is 7o0,000,000 pounds. - ,
Before the war our average monthly ex
ports of beef to the countries of the allies
were less than 1,000,000 pounds. During
the last two years we have averaged about
22,000,000 pounds a month In January the
allies called on us for 70,000,000 pounds a
month for the next three months. In March
we shipped 86,000,000 pounds of beef and
beef products to the allies. This was 20 per
cent larger than any previous month in seven
years and more than twice as "great as the
highest amount exported in any month in
the four years before 1915. Our cattle have
not increased since the war, and these in
creased drafts to the allies have been pro
vided by reducing our own .consumption. It
is a result of meatless days.
The production of beef in the United
States is about 650,000,000 pounds a month.
Our annual saving on sugar is expected to
foot up 400,000 tons. A year ago the whole
sale price of refined sugar was 8.33 cents a
pound; in April, 1918, with sugar much more
scarce, it was 7.3 cents a pound, a decrease
of 12 per cent In the same period the mar
gin between the price of raw and refined
sugar was reduced 'from- 2.12 cents a pound
to 1.3 cents. A reduction of 1 cent a pound
means a saving to the people of the United
States of $16,000,000, measured by annual
consumption. As to general price changes
since the food administration has been in
charge, the index number of producers'
prices for March, 191 shows an increase of
27 per cent over August, 1917, while the in
dex number of consumers' prices decreased
13 per cent. Wheat is the only commodity
the ,price of which the food administration
has authority to fix. For other commodities
the prices may be reached indirectly only
through regulation of profits. By far the
greater part of the reductions have been
through volunteer agreements about 90 per
cent, it is estimated.
That, briefly, shows what has been done in
food conservation. ,
Mr. Hoover took a chance on his faith in
the American people. That is the uncertain
quantity he undertook to 'deal with, on a
hazard that a mere Prussian materialist
would have regarded as inexcusably reckless;
the response of the American people to the
appeal for voluntary conservation is the one
part of the food saving that cannot be ex
plained; it is too deep for that; they did not
have to something utterly unintelligible to
the Prussian materialist, but it is sufficient
to say that Mr. Hoover's faith was justified.
It is assured that the allies' needs will be
provided for until the next harvest, and there
is food enough for the American people.

No legislation enacted by the present
congress has had more of the "human" ele
ment In it than the vocational rehabilitation
act, providing1 for the return to civil employ
ment of disabled persons discharged from
the military or naval forces, passed by the
senate without a dissenting vote.
The bill confers power on the existing
federal board for vocational education to
furnish suitable courses of vocational train
ing to disabled persons entitled, after dis
charge from military or naval forces, to
compensation under the bureau of. war risk
insurance, who, in the opinion of the board,
are unable to resume their former occupa
tions. Two million dollars is appropriated
to carry out this purpose.
During the period of training every per
son electing to follow the course will receive
Monthly compensation equal to the amount
of his last monthly pay in active service, and
bis family will receive compulsory allotment
and family allowance as if he were an en
listed man. However, if a person "willfully
refuses to follow the course he has elected,
the bureau of war risk insurance may with
hold part or all of bis compensation.
The significance of the passage of the bill
and of the testimony presented at the hear
ings before the committee of labor and edu
cation, which had it in charge, lies in the fact
that the American public has come to realize
that the ''physical' cripple is not necessarily
an "economic" or "social cripple. "Cripples
testify unanimously that the atitude of pub
lic opinion is a greater handicap than the
luss of a limb, a Red Cross official said re
cently. "There has always been a traditional
prejudice against the cripple. As a result
the expression of maudlin sympathy through
social entertainment has led in the past to
the demoralization of many other than sol
diers. Unquestionably, one of the greatest
dreads of the war has been the thought of
having our boys returned home disabled.
Much of this dread has come about because
of the point of view we have always taken
toward the cripple, and right here the Amer
ican public needs tt be Educated before our
maimed soldiers return. The cripple is not
helpless, but quite capabt of beic$ restored
to complete independence if trained and
placed m the right kind of work. The gov
ernment has now made provision for this.
and it is up to the community to encourage
him to accept training for useful work, to
employ him intelligently on a basis of compe
tency and to avoid any 'encouragement to
"It is the business of the War department
to fight, not to give agricultural, commercial
and trade education for civilian occupations,"
said Dr. C. A. Prosser, director of the federal
board for vocational education.- "When this
man goes back into industry he must act on
his own initiative. He must make his own
way. He must meet the changing conditions
of life as every citizen of a democracy does."
From the experience of other countries
in this war, America must anticipate re
education for 10,000 men a year out of every
1,000.000 men sent to the battlefield. Dr.
Prosser said. On a basis of 5,000,000 men
overseas, 50,000 a year would be subjects for
vocational rehabilitation. Of each 10,000
only 50 per cent are likely to need surgical
treatment, the other 50 per cent being sub
jects for. medical care alone tuberculosis,
heart trouble, etc Of the 5,000 surgical
cases 500 will likely have lost an arm or leg.
Based on the experience of Canada, few
cases of blindness will appear, that country
having had, only 27 blind men out of a total
of 4t,000 men returned.
"Bucking up" the men is the first stage in
rehabilitation, according to Dr. Prosser.
"They must know they are not destined for
the waste pile." And this process begins
while they are yet in the hospital convalesc
ing and under control of the War and Navy
departments. The board of vocational
training, according to the bill inst passed.
will advise with the surgeon general, in order
that the occupations and curative work given
to occupy the men's time and for their func
tional rehabilitation (restoration of proper
use of nerves and muscles) mar. so far as
possible, have a definite bearing on the prob-
aoie training ana employment ,atter , ais-charce.
The federal board for vocational educa
tion consists of the secretary of agriculture,
the secretary of commerce, the secretary" of
laoor, tne commissioner of education and
tnree civilians, one taken as an exnerf in
manufacturing andcofcmerce, one as an. ex
pert in agriculture and one as the represents
tfve of labor men who have had large ex
perience in these problem and who give
weir mure rune to tne wort.

McAdoo and the Managers.
Omaha, May Jl. To the Editor of
The Bee: 1 notice that the editor of
on of your Iqcal Contemporaries is
still engaged in his favorite indoor
iport damning th railroads. One
would think his common sense would
tell him to let up, inasmuch aa events
now transpiring completely vindicate
the railroad managers aad prove con
clusively, that their statement as to
funds needed was the truth.
On sentence in th report ot the
wage commission reads: "It Is hardly
realized that th railroads have in
19 IS and IS 17 increased their em
ployes' wages $350,003,000 a year."
Look at this sum and then remember
that it is only one of many burdens
the roads hae had to carry. No
doubt Mr. McAdoo and th railroad
administration have a very great re
spect for the railroad managers, now
that they see what conditions they
have had to labor under the public
complaining, 48 state commissions
hindering them and the Interstate
Commerce commission refusing any
relief. J. W. STONE.
Revise the Garbage Contract.
Omaha, June 4. To the Editor of
The Bee: It is with some concern I
read of the act of a re taurant keeper
who threw garbage into the street,
that he might attract attention from
the authorities. Perhaps no problem
of modern community life has been so
mishandled in Omaha as has this one
of the collection and disposal ot
household refuse. It it were new or
novel in any of its aspects one might
feel like excusing the late city com
missioners, but it has been acutely be
fore us for the last twenty-flve years,
or longer. Therefore some of the
blame for Its not having been solved
must rest on the citizens themselves.
Housewives, hotel and restaurant
keepers, and all classes who have
refuse to dispose of, have at one time
or another ' felt the effect of the
butiglesome way in which the matter
is handled, and have made futile and
fleeting protest. Many times in the

SALVATION DOUGHNUTS IN
Whea war waged Its wide desolation,
Among th young ladle I kissed
On leaving eur glorious aatloa.

Some girls I forgot as I kissed them;
Some lingered a week maybe two;
But, Elale, I sever missed them
Th way that Tv hankered tor yos.

And. sticking to truth, aa my duty.
Ton never had mack ef a bean.

I yearned for th doughnuts you'd fried m
