Public Health Bureau
If the members of the American Medical
association will but get together and agree on
a uniform policy with regard to the pressing
need of a federal department of health, there
is little doubt that congress will come to their
relief and establish such a department.
It is not only the experience of the country
with the influenza and infantile paralysis epi
demics that brings home to every layman as
well as professional men the need of absolute
co-ordination and standardization of public
medicine and of all preventive and quarantine
methods that must be set up from time to time,
but the experience of the medical profession in
the war hat confirmed everything that civil, life
has revealed as to the gross stupidity that has
for years prevented a federal department of
health from being set up.
At the same time, this situation cannot be
blamed wholly on the ignorance of the laity in
congress, since, as all medical men know, the
failure to secure a federal department of health
has been due in part to what is known as "med
ical politics." But surely when, as Dr. Charles
H. Mayo pointed out to the convention in At
lantic City in advocating that a department of
health be established, with a member of the
cabinet, it is a fact that as many as 18 bureaus
and departments at Washington take a hand
in some phase of the public health problem, it
is time that the profession got together and
acted as a unit in demanding that an end be
put to this fatuous procedure.
As it is, congress had better be memorialized
to establish such a department, in connection
with the request that it appropriate $1,500,000,
for an investigation of influenza. For, under
existing conditions, to ask large sums with
jnt securing absolute co-ordination in their ex
penditure for experimentation looking to the
.improvement of the public health is not the
a-jsest procedure. Everything that has hap
pened within the last two years cries out for a
properly centralized federal department of
health, and the public, as well as the medical
men, should insist that, this very necessary de-
fartment be established at once. Philadelphia
DRAFT CONVENTION DELEGATES.
It is time for the people of Omaha and
Douglas county to wake up to the importance
of the coming constitutional convention for
which delegates will have to be filed next month.
Under the apportionment we will send
twelve from Douglas county and these twelve
ought to be the most representative men in the
community. If they are to be chosen under the
nonpartisan plan as provided for, they must be
of both political parties and regardless of their
party affiliation they should be men of standing
and men who stand for something men whom
we want to send rather than mere self-seekers
who want to go.
The kind of men we ought to have represent
ing this county containing the great metropolis
of the state with its varied and important inter
ests, are just those who will not push them
selves forward as candidates, but must be made
to go as a matter of public duty.
Not by way of excluding anyone or institut
ing invidious comparisons, we ought in our
judgment to have lawyers like Norris Brown,
John L. Kennedy, John J. Sullivan, Howard H.
Baldrige, George W. Magney, Benjamin S.
Baker; business men like Robert Cowell,
Thomas C. Byrne, C. M. Wilhelm, John W.
Gamble, John W. Towl; some one for the live
stock interests like James G. Martin or Gene
Melady; ex-soldiers back from overseas duty
like Capt. Allan Tukey, Capt. C. F. McLaugh
lin, or doctors like Major Stokes and Major
Henry; some one from outside the city like J.
C. Robinson, of Waterloo; some of our natural
ized citizens like Harry Wolf or Vaclav Buresh,
and possibly a preacher like Rev. Titus Lowe,
Dr. E. H. Jenks or Dr. Frank Smith. Of course
there should be one or more delegates repre
senting the wage working classes, men who are
identified with the labor movement, who have
the confidence of the conservative, sober-minded
These suggestions are not intended to com
mit The Bee or any one else to these particular
men, but to direct attention to the character of
the men who should be summoned to help draft
our new constitution. The Bee would like to
have its readers propose other names for con
sideration, for in this way only will we be able
finally to secure a really representtive delega
tion which is so greatly to be desired.
. j What Ails Omaha?
Fewer than one in seven of the voters of
Omaha took the trouble to express their ap
proval or dissent to a $3,000,000 road bond issue.
The city commissioners by a vote of 5 to 2
condoned, and whitewashed detectives accused
of the most outrageous conduct ever charged
against public officials in this community.
The representatives of a certain phase of
public activity, when asked why they did, not
abandon an obsolete and misleading practice,
answered that, although The Bee had shown
them the blunder, they thought they would go
on as they were doing.
Here are three instances symptomatic of the
situation. Civic indifference, lethargy of the
public conscience, whatever term may be ap
plied to it, apparently controls. Only the people
themselves are to blame.
It is no pleasure to expose wrong-doing or
to criticize public servants, nor is it of great
avail, when warning and admonition alike en
counter only inattention. Blowing bubbles
and chasing rainbows will not better the local
situation. If Omaha Is td- improve and go
ahead as it ought, a more lively concern in
public affairs than is now manifest must be
Getting Back on the Job.
The decision of the Central Labor union not
to call a general walkout in Omaha was well
taken. Loud talk and vehement assertions on
either side will not help in adjusting any of the
difference's between workers and employers.
These only can be settled in conference wh,ere
calm counsel prevails and wisdom directs the
outcome. In the present strike, limited as it
was, fair employers were made to suffer be
cause some were deemed unfair. The injustice
of this does not require argument. A general
tie-up would have increased this imposition and
would have punished the fair employers more
than it would have affected those who decline
to deal with the unions. It is encouraging to
note that the leaders of labor in Omaha are at
last cognizant of this fact. Reasonably satis
factory conditions of labor seldom if ever flow
from violence. Settlements that come through
direct bargaining are the only basis for the co
operation that must be had if industry is to
thrive. The sooner the union men who have
been out on sympathy strike get back to work
for the employers who are willing to treat them
fairly, and by their faithful attention to business
show the sincerity of their purpose, the easier it
will be to make a bargain for the others.
Work of the War Labor Board.
The War Labor board is winding up busi
ness, preparatory to its dissolution. No agency
of the government performed a more needed
work in a more efficient way than this. Called
into existence as an emergency organization, it
was charged with the delicate and perplexing
task of stabilizing as far as possible industrial
conditions. This required that complex nego
tiations be carried on, searching, though hasty,
inquiries be made, and a full and sympathetic
as well as patriotic understanding of the difficult
problems be reached, in order that adjustments
might be made and the wheels kept turning at
high speed while the war was on. Its activity
gave vitality to the practice of settling labor
disputes by conciliation or arbitration, fixed the
principle of collective bargaining, and brought
relations between the employers and employed
to a better standing than ever prevailed. That
the board did not finally solve all the difficulties
in the way of industrial peace is not its fault.
Here and there a group on one side or the other
declined to accept the ruling made, and under
took to enforce its own views, but in the main
labor and capital found room to stand on the
ground prepared by the War Labor board. Its
existence has been fully justified by the results
It is Dr. Pershing now, by virtue of Oxford
university's having made him doctor of civil
law. He earned this degree by services in
France, but his bachelor degree in law he won
by hard study at the University of Nebraska,
and that is the one that counts.
If the torrid weather could only be induced
to operate on a six-day schedule, then the
mayor's plan to do away with Sunday delivery
of ice would be perfectly feasible. .
When New York Takes a Bath
From the New York Post.
There were enough baths to go around Sat
urday, for a wonder. Saturday was the hottest
day this summer each Saturday always is, you
know. The Pate.llo baby in Jones Street almost
didn't get any, through the conductor on the
trains falling foul of the salt bath that Patsy
Patello was bringing home to her from Coney
in a milk bottle. For a few minutes it was quite
a question as to whom was going to get the bath
and where. Patsy won out, however, and was
able to deliver the bath to the baby in person
on the fire escape later in the evening.
Yes, baths were certainly in order and in
evidence. The town was determined on baths.
They pushed and shoved and used fists and
had words and about ten thousand went through
the municipal bathhouses at Coney Island,
which is a verysmall proportion compared with
those who were of a size that could conveniently
make shift behind mother's umbrella.
And the trails to all the beach resorts were
clogged with the various forms of that mysteri
ous bundle known to contain the bathihg suit,
but still mysterious by reason of its powers of
compression and the diversity of its manifesta
tions. Sometimes it is a knitting bag, sometimes
a corset box, often merely a fat shopping bag,
just once it was a lawyer's brief case. Some
men think they can conceal it in a collar box;
and how.it swells and forces it uncouth identity
on the pretty girl sitting next on the trip home.
No one need bother again this summer about
getting the right trains for the beach. Just fol
low the bags.
In town the line formed early for tub baths
at the public bath houses,' which were worked
to capacity. Up to noon they poured in by the
family, and great was the noise and splash in
those neighborhoods. Children, an average of
four to a mother, disappeared, without the usual
protest, into the cubicles, while mothers and at
tendants enjoyed all the results of a Turkish
bath. After noon the grownups had things to
themselves, and at 11 o'clock Saturday night one
attendant, mopping up the floor for the hun
dredth time, declared it to have been the most
useful day of her life.
But those are all the more or less conven
tional baths. Ladies of a Victorian delicacy,
finding themselves off the beaten track, must
have thought they were being punished for this
indiscretion ty a Kiplingesque "sending," this
time of small, naked boys. Every East Side
street, from Brooklyn Bridge up, emptied a t.-rt
of its population into the river, while policemen,
headachy from counting and recounting each
group, and weighed down by responsibilities and
clothes, whistled vainly from the bank.
In the park lakes there were nooks that only
half concealed the almost nude bathers and the
policemen that slept peacefully while they
waited for someone to drown himself. At the
little "Round Pond," where model little girls
and boys sail model little boats, one bold, bad,
red headed adventurer was seen up to the neck
among the goldfish, while a group of more
conservative sympathizers took care of his
clothes and watched for the cop.
The street sprinklers helped some, too, but
the real treat of the day was when the white
wings" came along, about 10 at night and turned
on the water plugs, whether to clean the streets
and cool them or to do the same for the left
over bathless ones is immaterial, for both prof
ited. East Side and West Side were, in the main,
ready and dressed for it. By that time most of
the babies were in something resembling the
scorned one-piece bathing suit and, uncensored,
they raced to the corners where the older chil
dren were already casting off anything that mat
tered in the way of shirts and conventions.
Those who were in bed fose and went, some "as
is, others showing a fine regard for the proprie
ties in mother's old sweater or an old coat of

Council Bluffs: It Is reported
that the prince of Wales may visit
here In August.
Some day the hatred and bitterness of this
war will have 1 passed away and humanity will
be reconciled. How soon that day will come is
a matter on which there are different opinions;
Grand Admiral von Tirpitz and Enver Pasha,
with a vision of the gallows blocking off the
future, would like to see it dawn tomorrow;
the mothers of Belgian children, the fathers of
deported French girls, the surviving Armenians,
may feel that this would be somewhat prema
ture. A group of French writers, the best
known of whom is the variously eminent Bar
busse, think that the time is already at hand;
they have issued an appeal to intellectuals of all
lands to "scorn hatred of all kinds and join
hands for the task of tomorrow."
For some unexplained reason no German re
sponse has yet been made public; but intellectu
als of Austria hastened to clasp the outstretched
hand, and another answer has now come from a
group of American authors describing them

These lyrical ladies and gentlemen tell "the
intellectual fighters of Paris and Vienna" that
"we in America have heard and understand;"
that "for all nations there can be but one hu

Among the lovers of the dear home land of
Emerson, Whitman and Lincoln who have
signed this fraternal greeting are Dr. Edmund
von Mach, Dr. William Bayard Hale, Professor
Thomas C. HalU Frederick Franklin Schrader,
Frank Harris, and Padraic Colum. Along with
these representatives of intellectual entities, run
ning all the way from the Irish Republic to the
Fort Oglethorpe internment camp, there are
a dozen or so authentic Americans. One may
wonder how the signatures of some of them,
who knew what tae war was about not more
than a year ago, have been obtained to this
remarkable document; conceivably they didn't
know what other names would appear beside
theirs when the appeal for the forgiveness of

We made it clear, did we not, that
there has been denial of the en
gagement of Princess Mary, only
daughter of England's king and
queen, to the earl of Dalkeith, in
spite of which rumor persists. The
earl is a lieutenant in the Grenadier
Guards, the Prince of Wales' regi
ment. Serving on the personal staff
of the sovereign as he did, he came
in close touch with the royal circle.
He is a scion of one of the oldest
and most famous of noble Scotch
families. The family! mot is "Amo"
"I love." Twenty-five years old,
tall, clean-shaven and good looking,
he is the eldest of three brothers.
He is of the house of the "bold
Buccleuchs." The first head of the
family was Sir Walter Scott (not the
novelist). The Scotts fought with
the Douglases against the king of
Scotland, and in the process founded
the vast estate, which today
amounts to some 460,000 acres.
Many are the honors and high the
titles which will descend up on the
earl of Dalkeith.

if not excelled Mark Twain in de
lineation of the psychology of boy
hood and youth.
Newton Booth Tarkington was

29, 1869. His family was one of

He is a native of Kentucky and was
appointed to the naval academy

the Yantic and went to sea. Later
he devoted many years to coast sur

to be with Admiral Dewey in the
Philippines and to be the agent
through whom Spain surrendered its
forts on Corregidor island. In the
latter part of 1917 he was appointed
to duty with the British grand fleet,
and when the United States entered
the war in the following April he
was given command of the United
States battleships operating in the
war zone. Last September Admiral
