steadily because of world demand
for our foodstuffs.

You may have noted the density of silence
maintained by W. J. B. these days.
"Joe" Bailey has been secured to make a

French are to have cheaper food because the

"Independent" Germans are reported to be

laurels from Noah Webster or Sam Johnson as
a lexicographer.
. The chief of police can not work up any in

You can mail a letter to Berlin now for 2

". Why not tell the truth about it? The senate
laughed when the head fugleman for the treaty
said China had ample protection under Article
'X, which was violated in advance to give Japan
the Shantung peninsula and 36,000,000 Chinese.

the British people want more beer and better

Vaudeville In the Churches
It is to be said for the ministerial censor
who is exposing the wickedness of New York
that he is making a thorough job of it. Hav
ing duly castigated society for indecent danc
ing and other sins and excoriated the stage for
its decadence, he now indicts the Protestant
churches for "a shamejess surrender to the
worst tendencies of the times." They turn the
city over to the devil in summer, they "shut
tlecock the service of Almighty God" to please
golfers and motorists and adopt jazz-band de
vices. What is the next stage to be?
More vaudeville features tigflit-rope-
walking across the heads of the congrega
tion from the gallery to the choir loft?
' Consecrated clog-dancing and the religious
' ballet between the preacher's "stunts"?
' Everything is rotten. But is there not a
suggestion in this sort of pulpit rhetoric -of
the very things complained of a similitude of
consecrated clog-dancing in the name of re-
, form? Ministers rush in wher,e laymen fear to
tread in exposing the admitted shortcomings
of the churches. Much of course might be
said in their defense. But the theme would
not be "popular." ' It would not tickle the ears
of the groundlings, and indeed probably would
not be heard outside of the sacred edifice. It
is more dramatic to accuse. And vaudeville in
the pulpit no doubt is equally efficacious with
vaudeville in the choir in filling the pews.
Ntw York World. ' ,
The president is following one precedent, in
spite of his record for doing things his own
way, and that is in calling in. to private confer
ence members of the senate. Strictly speaking
he is within his rights, and is exhibiting the
same form of political acumen that character
ized most of his distinguished predecessors,
who did not disdain to consult with leaders
of the senate, regardless-of party. It is the
one way for the executive and legislative, branch
to' keep the close and intimate touch necessary
for team work in looking after the business of
the country. Mr. Wilson's greatest venture,
that of the League of Nations, migh have pros
pered better had he shown a disposition so to
take counsel a little earlier. Most of his diffi
culties have arisen from his self-sufficiency.
A list of fifty names has been prepared, it is
stated, of senators who will be invited to the
White House for consultation. Until the presi
dent himself gives out the list, its names will
not be known, save 'as the selected ones call
and retire. Nor will the nature of the conver
sations be made 'public. It may be surmised,
though, that some time an effort will be made
to accommodate the .difference in viewpoints
between the executive and the majority of the
body whose assent is needed to give force to
the treaty.
That compromise will come out of this may
be expected. , The president showed at Paris
that he can compound with his opponents, no
matter what his aversion. He will find out that
the senate's leaders are quite as determined to
make certain definite reservations as he is to
have the treaty adopted as a whole. When
these divergent points are laid side by side
and smoothed down to where they match, and
such an outcome is far from being impossible of
attainment, the vote may be taken.
The little meetings at the White House are
not the least important of the many incidents
in connection with the making of peace.
"Credit" for the Coming Peace.
How can republicans gain some recogni
tion of their fight against the League of Na
tions, and at the same time allow the peace
pact to go through containing that memor
able document? Washington Special to the
There you have it, jn a nut-shell, only the
query should be reversed. It really is, How can
the democrats go before the country and con
vince the voters that the president and his ad
herents alone are responsible for victory, and
that through their unaided efforts mankind has
been preserved from destruction?
From , the summer of 1916, when the
clacquers were shouting, "Thank God for Wil
son 1 He kept us out of war," down to this mo
ment they have steadily sought to set up in the
minds of the people the idea that it was the
democratic party alone that strove to save us
from the calamity of war, and when it was
forced upon the country, it was the undiluted
patriotism and transcendant wisdom of that
aggregation of political incompetents that pre
pared the way to triumph for America.
The public has a short memory, but it would
be remarkable if it already had forgotten how
the democrats in congress hampered the presi
dent by their opposition to his war plans; how
it was the republican leaders who came to his
aid, and forced the reluctant administration
party to speed up. v
Secretary'Baker excused the dilatory tactics
of the War department by saying the "war is
3,000 miles away." Dent of Alabama, a
democrat, chairman of the house committee on
military affairs, refused to report the selective
draft bill. Kahn of California, a republican,
brought in that measure and fought it through
the house against the opposition of democrats.
Speaker Champ Clark took the floor and de
nounced the law, saying he could "see no dif
ference between a conscript and a convict."
Finally, Senator Hitchcock of Nebraska, smart
ing under snubs, led the movement to take the
management of the war out of the hands of the
president and vest it in a board controlled by
he senate.
The republicans are not seeking "credit" in
connection with the peace treaty. What they
are trying to find out is whether it will bring
peace without disgrace to America. No ques
tion ever was raised as to the patriotism of
the republican party. The same can not be said
of its hoary and decrepit adversary.
Bonus for Wheat Excludes Imports.
President Wilson's proclamation fixing the
price of wheat at $2.30 per bushel at New Or
leans and Galveston also may put a quietus on
a hope for cheaper bread. The older specifically
provides that no wheat or wheat products may
be imported, except in accordance with limita
tions laid down by Director Barnes of the
wheat administration. Primarily this is ex
pected to prevent any sale of Canadian wheat
on this side at the bonus price. It presents
another possibility, though, and one that de
serves close attention. Under the application
of the rule the American 'consumer may be re
quired to pay such price for his flour as will
save the government whole on whatever of
the wheat crop is consumed at home. Thus,
so far as the cost of food is concerned, Ameri
cans would derive no benefit whatever from
the bumper crop, because of prices being held
up to the government figure. In Europe, espe
cially in Great Britain, relief in the form of
lower cost of bread is expected with the com
ing to market of the current year's crop. The
United States will have for export more wheat
than ever, almost the total prewar requirement
of the food-importing countries of Europe.
Normally this great surplus would give some
advantage to home users, but unless the ad
ministrator has a thought for the eaters rather
than for the obligation of the government,, to
the raisers, we may be compelled to continue
paying war prices for bread as a result of the
order just promulgated.
Extreme dry advocates in congress have
been warned that they may go too far, and the
warning does not come from the wets. How
ever, you might as well get accustomed to
thinking of the long drouth ahead.
The Deutschland is to be made a permanent
war museum feature in London. This is a
better destiny than the unknown fate of its sis
ter, the Bremen.
John Finnerty's famous epigram, "Invinci
ble in peace and invisible in war," applies to a
lot of folks who are filling the news columns
British Empire and League
Premier Hughes of Australia and Sir Jos
eph Cook, chairman of the navat committee,
were guests of honor at a dinner given by the
British Empire league in London recently.
The following is a portion of their remarks as
published in the London Times, tnd gives a
good notion of how conservative British opin
ion regards the peace treaty and the league of
nations., Premier Hughes said:
Although the empire is, perhaps, the great
est factor in the world's life, we have no im
perial policy. It is true, as we have just seen
and know, that it grew with little if any aid
from governments; but is its future to be left
to chance, to endure or to pass away as may
be? Or are we to formulate a policy of em
pire. which will tend to ensure its permanence
and safety and develop its resources? The
problem before us today is how we are going
to readjust the circumstances of that confed
eration of nations and peoples which we call
the British empire to the new conditions which
the war and the treaty of peace have created.
First we must remember that, apart from
the ties of race and tradition, the two material
bonds that held the various parts of the em
pire to Britain were defense and trade. The
growth of the self-governing dominions, the
development of their institutions of free gov
ernment, as well as their rapidly increasing
wealth, were due to the fact that the mighty
British navy had protected them from all dan
ger, had kept predatory hands from being
stretched out to clutch these fertile and rich
portions of the earth. They still need protec
tion. They have shown that they can raise
great armies. Australia has even a small but
quite useful navy. But against a first-class
power we feel some further defense is called
for. To whom are we to look? 'You say to
the British navy? Good. But will the British
navy be in the future the supreme naval pow
er? And will it be entirely under the control
of Britain? Has the old order of things passed
away with the coming of the league of nations?
Let me put the position shortly. I welcome
the league of nations. I believe the idea of
settling disputes by appeal to reason and
right, rather than by brute force, is the civil
ized and proper method. But the end of war
is not yet. These last five or six months,
while men in Paris have been talking over the
league of nations, war has been raging in near
ly every quarter of the world, and strife and
unrest manifest themselves everywhere. Hu
man nature is not to be bottled up by formu
las or ambition and desire repressed by pious
words. I am not satisfied that the league of
nations will work quite as its advocates believe.
If we in Australia are attacked, to whom shall
we call the league of nations or the British
empire? Unless there is an imperial system
of defense, unless every part of the empire
knows that between them and danger is the
British navy, this empire is the1 fabric of a
The British navy under the league of na
tions is no longer a British navy under thar
control of Britain. It is part and parcel of
that heterogeneous force that is to police the
world and guarantee its peace. We are to call
on the league of nations. But who is this
league of nations? Will it contain our pres
ent deadly enemy? No man can say but in
all human probability it will. If we are at
tacked, does any man think that the league of
nations will come to our aid with that swift
eagle swoop that will mark the flight of the
aggressor? Does any man think that a nation,
having made up its mind to take the plunge,
will spend its time in dallying, in giving notice
of its intention to plunge a dagger into our
hearts? No. The first notice of that nation
will cornel in the roar of cannon, in the actual
noise of conflict.
We know now in this matter where we
stand. We must not leave the firm ground
for the treacherous quicksand. Let us make
up our minds, while there is yet time, .come
what may, we will not abandon the substance
for the shadow. We will not abandon that
sure shield behind which we have lain so safely
for that other thing which h,as yet to win its
spurs. (Cheers.)
Sir Joseph Cook, in responding, said that
during his visit he had been greatly struck
with the spirit of the empire as it displayed it-"
self in the heart of the empire. He thought
they could have dispensed with a great deal of
the criticism of the peace conference they had
got for many weeks past. A good deal of
criticism was not at all justified.
They had been engaged in the most colos
sal task in the history of the world. The task
was not yet complete. Much uncertainty and
disquiet prevailed all over the world, and in
finite patience and labor would be needed yet
to put things right. The whole world had
been sent reeling; victor and vanquished were
more or less dislocated and xbeggered in the
result. In these circumstances, it was not too
mucfi to ask that the people should be a little
patient while their representatives were trying
to make a peace which would last and be worthy
of the war. There were lots of things one
could say before leaving, but the feeling , in
one's mind was that while they had so much
trouble of their own still on their hands, and
needing all their energies "and wisdom to con
trol and to Solve, it would be better to leave
the people in the mother country to face their
own in their own way, while they unravelled
and straightened out theirs in the dominions.
Some things the war had not changed. One
was the conviction of the dominions that their
future destiiy must be within the empire and
not outside it. There were many common du
ties attaching to this common realization. They
went out to their own countries to develop
the empire's resources there, while the people
of the mother country developed them here at
home. They would try to make it secure out
there, while the people here made it secure at
home. They would carry with them the same
outlook and ideals and try to live on the same
high plane of civilization which had made the
empire so widely respected in the world. They
would recognize their growing power as a
trusteeship as the empire had done in all the
past days. It was his hope as it was his firm
belief that the best days ,of the empire were
yet to be. (Cheers.)

Head of American Peace Commls-
Frank Lyon Polk will sail for
Paris' on Monday, the 21st, to be
come head of the American peace
commission. Within a few years he
has made a brilliant record as
diplomatic and legal adviser of the
United States government. Recently
he became uder secretary or tne
State department, a new position
created by act of congress. Mr.
Polk is of an old Tennessee family.
One of his grandfathers was
Protestant Episcopal bishop,
Leonidas Polk, who won fame as a
leader In the confederate army. Mr,
Polk is a Tale A. B. and a Columbia
LL. B. He began to practice law
in New York City in 1897. and with
in seven years had been made
member of .the state civil service
commission. For a year, 1914-16
he was corporation counsel of the
city of New York, and it was while
he was In this position that Presi
dent Wilson picked him out and
summoned him to Washington to
succeed Robert Lansing as counselor
of the State department.

Of his years of study abroad and
his recognition there even before
he "gained standing as an artist at
home. He made his first formal
appearance before a critical EiV
ropean audience In Paris in 1905.
His American debut came three
years later. He has since toured
very thoroughly both Europe and
the United States. He composes as
well as renders musical composi
tions. While the United States was
at war he was generous with his
time and talent in serving the com
mittee on entertainment of the sol
diers. Later Mr. Spalding decided
to do his own "bit" as a soldier and
joined the military forces of the
United States.
M. P. The question you ask can
not be answered at present. It is
wholly a matter of speculation.

Cornell university, specializing in
classical philalogy and Greek litera

(Peggy and Billy, turn Into honey bees
when Humble Bee Buzz gives them a
wish. They teas Jndge Owl and he sen
tences them to be eaten bj King Bird.)
King Bird's Circus Stunts.
JUDGE OWL in his wise old way
had turned the tables on Peg
gy Bee and Billy Bee when he sen
tenced them to be eaten by King
Bird. Of course, he did not know
that they were Peggy and Billy; he
thought they were only a couple of
bothersome wild honey bees. And
King Bird didn't know who they
were. All he knew was -that after
a long fast from honey bees he had
been told to gobble these two up,
and he went at his job very eagerly.
He was Just like a boy who hadn't
eaten any pie all during the war
and who suddenly had a big, Juicy
pie piacea Deiore him and was told
to go to it.
Now, Peggy and Billy, who had
been dodging around Judge Owl's
ears as a Joke, dodged for a very
different reason. They dodged to
save themselves from King Bird's
sharp beak. They knew that if he
got them it would be the end of
Peggy and Billy, being, small,
could turn quickly, 'but they found
that King Bird was a dodger, too.
They would Jump to one side, and
he would come piling around In a
short circle. They would dodge
downward, and he would turn a
somersault in the air to 'keep on
their trails.
It was like a circus performance.
or like two little airplanes battling
with a big airplane that was chasing
them. The birds gathered around
and watched it eagerly. It was a
regular show for them, atjd they
twittered and twittered in high glee
as King Bird almost got 'em and
then Just missed.
Kingfisher, sitting on the limb of
a dead tree, rattled and gurgled in
his merriment, opening his mouth
wide. Peggy dropped to the ground
all tired out. King Bird was after
Billy and he didn't notice Peggy,
nor did the other birds. Billy was
getting tired, too, and King Bird
noticed it. He made one final swift
dash, and it looked as if Billy would
be finished right there and then.
But Billy had a refuge in sight.
He dodged King Bird's dash and,
quick as the flash of an eye, he pop
ped into the open beak of King
The birds saw him vanish, but
they didn't have the slightest idea
where ho had gone. Neither did
Kingfisher. He closed his beak, but
the inside was like a small cavern
to a honey bee, Billy instead of being
crushed, had plenty of room.
Peggy saw that Billy was safe
from King Bird, and she crept
under a leaf. Bumble Bee Bum
hid himself in the honeysuckle vine.
"Chee, chee, chee! They got
away from you," laughed the birds,
in high glee over King Bird's hun
gry disappointment
"Hoot: Hoot! Hoot! I'm Just
as glad." said Judge Owl, who had
got back his usual good humor
while watching the show. "I guess
they were Just mischevious and not
bad after all.
" Ru7.-z-z-J!-z! You'd better be
glad," hummed Bumble Bee Buzz,
flying out of the honeysuckle vine,
for the honey bees are Princess
Peggy and Billy Belgium, In dis
guise themselves.
"Princess Peggy and Billy!"
.shrieked all the birds. "Where are
they now?"
"And to think I sentenced them
to be gobbled up!" groaned Judge
Owl. "King Bird are you sure you
didn't swallow them?"
"I'm am sure said King Bird,
beginning to Mook scared. "But
maybe I did give them a hard nip."
But now Kingfisher began to act
very pecularly. He coughed, he
choked, he gagged and all of a sud
den hf began to laugh violently and
tumble about as if some one were
tickling him.
"Oh. oh. something is wrong with
me inside," he rattled. "I'm but
zins like an airplane."
As he opened his mouth to say
this, out flew Billy, safe and sound.
He had hummed in Kingfisher's big
bill, and this what made the bird
feel so queer.
"Buzz-z-z-z! It's Billy Bee," said
Bumble Bee Buzz.
"Chee! Chee! We're glad to see
you. Billy, but where is Princess
Peggy'" sang the birds.
"Here I am," buzzed Peggy, fly
lrg up from her hiding place. Then
then, was glad rejoicing among the
birds, and Judge Owl was so
relieved because Peggy and Billy
hadn't been gobbled up that he
danced a Jig.
In the midst of the fun Peggy
heard a humming call from the edge
of the forest:
"Busy, busy, busy bee,
Never idle, never free.
Busy, busy, busy bee."
Again this call had it's pecular
effect upon Peggy. She felt that
they must join the worker bees at
their toil. She couldn't resist the
force that was pulling her. Billy
and Bumble Bee Buzz were not
there to grab her this time, and
before she knew what was happen
