Courtesy to Latin-America
From the Department of State a recommen
dation has gone to congress proposing legisla
tion which would authorize the president to in
vite each of the Latin-American nations to
send two-representatives annually, beginning in
1920, to the United States for training either
at ..West Point or Annapolis. There is every
. reasons to commend this proposal. The doors
of our general educational institutions have al
ways been wide open, of course, to students
from South and Central America, and a num
ber of candidates have availed themselves in
the past of- the opportunity so offered. Indeed,
there was graduated from the Naval academy
last week a son of Col. Aurelio Heria, formerly
secretary of war and navy for Cuba. But there
have been all too few chances given to the
young men of South America to come here for
their? training without expense to themselves,
and for ' congress to make such opportunities
available at West Point and Annapolis would
be to lead the way to frequent exchanges on
thie best basis possible.
v ,.The foundation of these national scholar
ships fof the Latin-American countries at the
two finest t)f-our government's schools would
be a gift clearly betokening the friendship of
the United sStates toward the ideal of Pan

We are just now. setting out on a great
experiment in self-restraint. Two years ago
we interposed between the world and a force
that threatened destruction of free institutions.
Triumphant from that trial, we have yet to
show the world our sincerity. It does not mat
ter that this already has been proven in other
tests; Europe is not ready to accept us at our
own Valuation yet. As we deal with the new
problems, so will the faith of older peoples in
our integrity be justified.
Independence Day, 1919, finds us strong,
virile, lusty, vigorous, our mission to the world
well defined, our purpose undimmed, and our
resolve to carry on undiminished. It is good
that we may without hypocrisy look the world
squarely in the face today.
Problem for American Leaders.
Merely telling the people that bolshevism is
mistaken in theory and practice alike will not
cure a situation that is growing no better. It
is the "man on the street" who is uneasy. He
finds himself forced to practice utmost economy,
and unable to adjust his affairs to meet rapidly
changing conditions. Wages are going up, but
not as fast assother things; incomes may be ad
vancing, but the rate is so uneven that real
hardship is being borne by .those whose oppor
tunities for adding to their revenue is limited
by interest increment. Eight months have
elapsed since the pressure of war was removed,
yet little sign of recovery is noted.
These things are at the bottom of all the
unrest, here and elsewhere. What the solu
tion will bipis not known; but it is plain that
some check to excessive profit-taking must be
applied before justifiable complaints are si
lenced. It is not easy to talk patriotism to a
man who considers himself the victim of extor
tion. Our government is not devised for the
work of regulating business transactions,
beyond seeing that unfair methods are not ap
plied, and it is perhaps well that this is so. But
in the minds of the multitude is the notion that
through the government relief may be had.
Leaders of American business men are just
how taxed with a domestic problem that far
exceeds in its acute aspects any question of
foreign relations. Wise action by them will
serve better than anything in steadying the pub
lic in this crisis.
Anna Howard Shaw.
A singular combination of mental alertness
and bodily vigor made Dr. Anna Howard Shaw
a notable figure in her day. The resolute qual
ity of her character that sent her to begin a
course in college with only $18 and her moral
courage to support her was exhibited in all her
undertakings. She obtained the educational
training she sought; and for all the days of her
life was devoted to the advancement of hu
manity in general and the conditions of her sex
in particular. As the foremost advocate of wo
man's suffrage, she attained wide celebrity dur
ing the closing years of her life, and was per
mitted to see success attend her efforts. Logi
cal as a reasoner, forceful in argument, skilled
in debate, she was a champion of champions in
the battle that ended with the passage of the
suffrage amendment by congress last May, Thus
death was kind to her, coming when her
triumph was fresh. Her services were not alone
in the interest of "votes for women," for she
took part in all the activities of life, and was
granted a distinguished service medal for her
part in connection with the Council of National
Defense. One of the really great women of
modern times, she will be sincerely mourned.
Not a Happy Comparison.
The administration champion of the League
of Nations in the senate referred to a combina
tion that existed among certain Indian tribes
in the Fifteenth century as an example of what
might be expected from the league. The com
parison is not especially happy. Readers of
American history will hardly look forward with
complacency to the prospect of projecting on a
world scale the career of the Five Nations. Its
first and most successful undertaking was to
exterminate a weaker tribe, too "numerous to be
overcome by either of the members of the allied
group, but an easy victim to the combination.
While carrying on the massacre of the Hurons,
and resisting the efforts of the French to ad
vance up the St. Lawrence, the Five Nations
found opportunity to wage war against weaker
peoples to the south and west, and made the
name a terror throughout a vast region. It was
only when the white race had completely con
quered them that these Indians showed any. of
the traits that have since ' brought to them
a vestige of respect and this mainly from those
who are not familiarly conversant with their
methods. It may be argued that they lived ac
cording to therr lights, but they merely exhibited
proof of the fact that strength is quite apt to be
used for purposes not always commendable.
Another series of protests to Mexico is now
going forward. Senor Carranza should be ad
vised that Uncle Sam has the nucleus of a per
fectly good army that is now available for any
business it may be called upon to transact.
The real test of control between Uncle Sam
and John Barleycorn is now started.
The Problem of the Stork
From the New York Times.
It scarcely needed 'the high adventures of
Bobby-Ash to tell us that a baby is the most
interesting object in nature or civilization.
Found in an ashcan five months ago, Bobby was
taken into the home of a prosperous securities
broker, cared for by a nurse, swaddled in lux
ury, and aired in an automobile. But legal
technicalities intervened, and Bobby must now
be returned to the New York Nursery and
Child's hospital. This romantic story has been
chronicled in the press together with somewhat
less romantic stories about the former crown
prince and the devious adventures of the peace
It is not without significance that Bobby
was found in an ashcan. Most modern babies
are like the hero of Oscar Wilde's farce, who
was found as an abandoned bundle in a railway
station; their origin is a terminal. At the time
of the Franco-Prussian war the population of
France and Germanv was about the same, ap
proximately 40,000,000. In 1914 Germany had
almost doubled' in population, while France had
remained virtually stationary. In the United
States the birthrate is markedly tending toward
that of France, and" also in Great Britain,
though more slowly. In all three countries the
shrinkage is largely among salaried brain work
ers the folk who are so often proclaimed as
the mainstay of the nation. Only the "prole
tariat" is still prolific.
The intelligent and well-to-do, meantime,
seem more interested than ever in babies.
Foundling homes are besieged by married folk
eager to adopt nameless infants. Some years
ago a farce was written about a woman who
tried to palm off a foundling upon her husband
as his own child. Its popularity was amazing,
here and in England. Eventually it received
what, for a farce, amounts to apotheosis: it was
made into a musical comedy. One touch of
baby made the whole world grin. But some
where and somehow, obviously, things are go
ing wrong. The world of free institutions has
defeated the German army and the German
navy, but the German baby goes marching on.
It does not help the case that his future is to be
not military but industrial. Against armed
power the world is united in a resolute and tri
umphant will, but against a swarming multitude
of hands and brains it will be powerless unless
it meet like with like.
Our shortcoming, doubtless, it attributable
to the stork.- In the distribution of his favors
among us the silly bird must be made more
general, and indeed more generous. Of old he
had no predilection for ashcans. His favorite
haunts were the houses of the bourgeoisie, on
whose chimney-tops he nested, a cartwheel be
ing perched there for his convenience. The
landlords of our apartment houses are not at
present in a very suggestible mood, but really
there should be a cartwheel on the roof for
If the landlord 'is obdurate, he should be
voted down. And he can be, for this is a mat
ter in which the newly enfranchised woman is
specially interested. A groping male once con
fided to a feminist leader certain doubts as to
the natural destiny of woman. Did it not lie
outside and above the arena of politics as the
priestess and guardian of the race, of its health
and its welfare, physical, mental and moral?
The answer had no dubious sound. "Funda
mental problems," this leader replied, "such as
race suicide, eugenics, celibacy, etc., are beside
the suffrage question. If any' one hopes to
solve them through suffrage, he is on the wrong
path. No suffragist, however uninformed, would
hold such premises." But victory brings the
calmer mood, the saner and more tolerant out
look. In Los Angeles they have ostrich farms, the
live stock of wlich yield abundant plumes for
women. Is it possible to convert these farms
into universities for the stork, and there teach
him to improve his nesting? "Not feathers but
babies 1" should be the words on their escut
cheons. The problem is a difficult one. Though,
the commercial product of the ostrich is vanity,
his nature is amenable to discipline; he stays on
the ground. Your stork, though he deals in
the commodity most essential to human hap
piness and progress, seems somehow to be a
vain and flighty creature.
Perils from the Sky
When death comes out of the .air in the
fofrn of a friendly airplane and brings silence
into homes where little children once romped
all because suitable arrangements were not
made for the landing of a flier, long expected,
it would seem that the time had come when
measures be taken to guard against like hap
penings in the future. It is a sad commentary
upon our foresightedness that such an accident
as that at Franklin field should happen.
The wonder is that it has not happened long
before. Death has come, indeed, though in an
other way. Only recently, because our air high
ways are not properly charted and marked.
Captain James, the noted British flier and win
ner of the Globe's $1,000 prize for a flight from
Atlantic City to Boston, was lost, probably at
sea. And within a few weeks a flier from
Springfield to Boston was forced to the hazard
of landing in Cambridge because the spot where
he haa planned to alight was not properly
Aviation is recognized as a sport which is
not safe for those who go up. It is quite as dan
gerous for people on the ground. The time
comes when a plane must either land or fall.
Until landing fields are properly marked so
that a man in the sky can make 90 mistake and
until they are kept clear of people, we will be in
daily danger of such a tragedy as that in Frank
lin field. Boston Globe.
Peculiarities of the Penguin.
The penguins of the Antartic region are the
most human of all the bird family, walking up
right, living in communities, quite unafraid of
man, and possessing one trait almost unknown
among any other of the so-called lower
creatures. That is, the old birds will look after
young ones that have strayed from their parents,
and tend them as carefully as their own.

In response to several recent In
quiries about Frank O. Lowden,
governor of Illinois:
"Mr. Lowden was born at Sunrise,
Minn., January 26, 1861, and in 1868
moved with his family to Iowa,
where he helped his father farm,
g-etting what schooling the frontier
life afforded. A good education was
his goal early in life. At the age
of 15 he had traveled far enough to
ward it to be able to teach' school.
Saving and studying, he managed
to enter the University of Iowa when
20 years old. His money ran out,
however, and he was compelled to
teach again until he could re-enter
college, which he did later, graduat
ing at the head of the class. Not con
tent with this achievement, he
turned his eyes toward a legal de
gree. In 1887 he was graduated
from Union College of Law, now
Northwestern, having completed the
two-year course in one year. For
the second time he was valedictorian
of hi class, receiving, at North-westil.-n,
the first prize for his ora
tion and the first prize for scholar
ship. In the same year he was examined
for the bar and outranked all who
at that time took the examination.
He practiced law successfully for
some years, and in 1900 returned to
the soil, purchasing a farm near
Oregon, 111., his permanent home.
In 1896 he devoted his great speak
ing ability to the campaign of Wil
liam McKInley. In 1903 he was de
feated by Charles S. Deneen for
nomination for the governorship of
Illinois. In the campaign following he
aided in the election of Mr. Deneen.
In 1906 he was elected to congress
and in 1908 was chosen national
committeeman for his state, serving
in that capacity for eight years. In
1916 he "Was elected governor of

JOYOUSNESS sat at the head of

and Hopeful Smiles on one side and

"I cooked this meal all myself,"
said Joyousness proudly, And as
Peggy 'and Billy feasted upon the
most delicious dishes they had ever
eaten they agreed she was a marvel
It was a happy, Jolly dinner, with
every one laughing, talking and hav
ing a good time. Indeed all were so
merry that it wasn't until Peggy
had eaten her last mouthful of straw
berry shortcake and ice cream that
she had time to think of Frowning
Phil and Wantit Myway.
"Oh, please, may I take a sand
wich to Frowning Phil and Wantit
Myway?" she asked. "They must
be very hungry after their perilous
trip down the mountain."
"Yes, but give them just one sand
wich apiece," said Joyousness. "Those
who make themselves disagreeable
when invited to my feasts must suf
fer the consequences."
Frowning Phil and Wantit Myway
were still on their heads, kicking
their heels in the air, when the oth
ers came from the dining room. They
turned over in a hurry when Peggy
gave them the sandwiches.
"Gee, these are good better than
any chicken I ever ate," exclaimed
Frowning Phil, who had missed the
whole dinner because of the fuss he
raised when he learned that chicken
was not on the bill of fare.
"Now for a show!" cried Joyous

whisked them back into the theater
where they had seen the dancers.
This time a moving picture screen
held the stage and a photoplay was
flashing its story to them. To their

story was about their own quest of

Omaha, July 3. To the Editor of
The Bee: Referring to editorial In
your issue of July 3 about the
"Child's Point" property, recently
referred to in the papers as the
"Fontenelle Forest," please permit
me, as president of the Fontenelle
Forest association, to state:
The association has always agreed,
both verbally and in our contract
with the former owners, and we
have faithfully adhered to our agree
ment to continue to call that part
of our contemplated forest and bird
preserve by Its original, so well
However, we hope to acquire con
siderable additional land of similar
kind. When we were about to ask
for a charter, under which to in
corporate, some members wanted to
adopt the name, "Child's Point For
est association," 'and if we had not
contemplated securing considerable
other property in addition, that
would have been the name adopted,
but we finally adopted the name,
"Fontenelle Forest association," as
being "broader," since our charter
covers acquisitions of property any
where in Douglas and Sarpy coun
ties. It is the newspapers rather than
any members of our association who
have recently used the designation
"Fontenelle Forest" for the Child's
Point property. Vary respectfully,

THE CALL OF THE FLAG.

It affects each Institution;
It's the call of the Flag!

this was going on, was amazed to see
all he had missed through his
"Why. that's a lot better time than
I'd have had if I had had my own
way," he admitted. "Why did I
listen to Wantit Myway?"
"That's right, blame It on me!"
retorted Wantit Myway, and with
that he threw Phil across his knee
and gave him a sound spanking.
Phil took the spanking like a sen
sible child takes bitter medicine, as
if he knew it would do him good.
Now they all had another surprise,
for the picture showed that while
they thought they were pursuing Joy
ousness, they were really only chas
ing her shadow. Joyousness herself
was rlcht on the train with them
through the whole trip, snuggling up
close to Peggy and Billy.
"I'm. always with those who try
to make themselves happy," cried
Joyousness, laughing at their puzzled
looks. "Lots of folks who seek me

Phil looked at Wantit Myway and
Wantit Myway looked scared. Sud

to spank him' vigorously.
"Zowie!" yelled Wantit Alyway,
and then he underwent a strange
transformation right before their
eyes. The roundness was spanked
out of him, he grew slender and
graceful and his ugly face became
beautifully pleasant. In less time
