REVIVING A DEAD CRY.
Clacquers for unqualified endorsement of
the peace treaty and its League of Nations con
tent are now resorting to a miserable subter
fuge in order to discredit the senators who wish
to make certain reservations. Unless the sen
ate gives assent to the treaty, with approval of
the Shantung deal, we will have war with Japan.
In fact, it is boldly asserted that the critics of
the document are looking for war. This is
quite as silly as was the "war" cry that proved
so potent in 1916, and the appeal is being made
just as it was then, in hope of catching ap
proval from the hysterical. The president
shows little faith in the success of this venture,
for he approaches the senate from another
angle. He has asked permission to name a
commissioner from the United States on the
reparations commission. For the moment the
senate is inclined to wait until it ean examine
the proposal to see just how far such action
will commit the body toward accepting the
treaty. The crisis is not far away at Wash
ington, and the several maneuvers of the ad
ministration leaders give color to the belief
they are preparing to make some concessions.
The treaty must be ratified and the league en
dorsed, but with specific reservations Tj points
vital to American interests. This result will
not be materially changed by the effort of the
democrats to blow dust in the eyes of the
Peace Terms for Austria.
Conditions for peace presented to the Aus
trian government are in the main the same as
those assented to by Germany. The exact amount
of indemnity to be required from the smaller
country will not be determined finally before
May, 1921. The peace commissioners recognize
the inability of the Austrians to pay all they
are responsible for. and will deal with them ac
cordingly. Prewar debt is to be apportioned between
the new nations that have arisen from the
wreck of the empire, on the ratio of revenue
provided. War debt is to be assumed by the
new republic; such portion of it as is held by
nationals of the new countries is to be disre
garded entirely. As an offset to this all government-owned
property of the late empire,
including public service utilities and crown
lands, goes to the new nations as reparation in
Austria's army is to be reduced to 30,000
men, and universal service abolished. Arms or
munitions may not be exported or imported,
and only one factory will be permitted to man
ufacture such materials. Others must be dis
mantled or converted. This determines the fu
ture of the great Skrupa plant. Making of war,
which has been really a fine art with the
politicians who revolved around the Hapsburg
court for many generations, will go with their
army to the discard. The shrewdest, most
unscrupulous diplomatic double-dealers the
the world ever knew no longer can menace
Other details of the treaty are carefully
worded, so that the high and mighty power
that precipitated the world war by undertaking
to crush a little neighbor is humbled to the
limit. And yet the terms are just, and have due
regard for the present and future of Austria.
Vienna will cease to be a world capital, but
may yet become the political and social center
for a happy and prosperous people.
Shoe Leather and High Prices.
The Shoe and Leather Reporter, replying to
a letter from Senator Capper, who inquired as
to the reason for the proposed great uplift in
the price of shoes now promised for the fall,
passes the buck in several different directions.
Increased consumption of leather, due to the
war, is the principal cause alleged, but advance
in prices on steers, on hides, on leather, in labor
costs, and in other ways are made to share the
blame. Finally, we are told: "It would be
conducive to a better understanding if the
American public could be informed that shoes
have been selling at $25 and $30 for many long
months in both the warring and neutral coun
tries of continental Europe." Well does the
American public know this, and what is more,
it knows that for the last five years it has been
urged by the Red Cross and other charitable
agencies to contribute of old clothes, worn
shoes and the like, that poverty-stricken mil
lions might not go naked and barefooted
through the winters in continental Europe. Are
we to be reduced to that condition? Only a
few in Europe could pay $25 and $30 a pair for
shoes, and not many in this country can stand
such prices. The Shoe and Leather Reporter
winds up its statement with the comforting con
clusion: "That there have been occasional ab
normal profits and losses in the leather indus
tries, just as there have been promotions and
casualties in the war." Ability to pay will rule
here as elsewhere.
Labor and the League of Nations.
That the American Federation of Labor
heads should send out an appeal to affiliated
bodies asking support for the League of Na- i
tions is no occasion for surprise. At the late ;
Atlantic City convention of the Federation, the
league was endorsed in principle by a vote of
29,909 for to 420 against. This was after care
ful and dispassionate discussion of the league
on the floor of the convention, it having been
privately debated among the delegates for
more than two weeks previously.
Organized labor, however, is under no de
lusions as to the nature of the proposed com
pact between the nations. It was known to the
delegates before the vote was taken that certain
cf the principles embodied in the labor "magna
charta" written into the treaty had been modi
fied by the Peace conference at the instance of
Sir Robert Borden of Canada, who was un
willing to go as far as the others. In spite of
this, the document is accepted even by those
who -have misgivings as to its entire service
ability, because it offers a reasonable solution
for the political troubles of the world, while
setting up machinery by which some of the
economic problems may be dealt with.
Organized labor of America, through its cen
tral congress, frankly accepts the proffer of the
statesmen assembled at Paris, pledging its faith
by the overwhelming vote of endorsement. It
will be well if the statesmen do not "keep the
word of promise to the ear and break it to the
hope" of these men.
New York's birth rate was driven down by
war and the marriage rate is curtailed by
economic pressure. Either cause is enough, but
both may be removed in time,
Why Not a Ford Dictionary
From the Minneapolis Tribune.
Henry Ford, who is now red-hot for pre
paredness, nevertheless still wishes the world
were in such a good humor that no part of it
would think of going to war with any other
part of it. It may seem presumptuous for what
our president calls a "pigmy mind" to make
suggestions to a man of the mental stature
of Mr. Ford, but wouldn't it be possible for the
great Detroit business man to put the world
in that kind of humor by publishing a work
entitled "Ford's Unabridged Dictionary?"
We have been struck with the definitions
given by Mr. Ford on the stand in his libel suit
against the Chicago Tribune. Judging from
the few samples disclosed at this trial, we ven
ture to say that a lexicon compiled by Mr.
Ford would be notably marked for its original
ity and for its independence of all other lexicons
with which the English-speaking race has been
blessed or cursed. We have had a plentitude
of dictionaries for the high-brows, the aristoc
racy and the bourgeoisie. We are in sad need
of one for hoi polloi, or the proletariat one
that shall be simple; one that shall look upon
words as without ancestral trees; one that shall
be conceived and executed in the new atmos
phere of a world made safe for something or
A few deadly parallels in definitions are in
Noah Webster defines an idealist as "an
adherent of a doctrine of idealism." It doesn't
get us anywhere except into deeper trouble
than we were before.
Mr. Ford says an idealist is "one who helps
make profits for others." There we have en
visaged for the mind's eye a person who does
something that we all understand.
Mr. Webster defines an anarchist as "a mal
content respecting all existing institutions, re
guarding them as essentially tyrannical, either
as aristocratic plutocratic." Very well, but
what do malcontent, institutions, tyrannical,
aristocratic and plutocratic, each and several,
mean? No response from the galleries.
Mr. Ford says an anarchist is "one who
throws bombs or seeks to overturn a govern
ment." It fills the eye and mind at once with
the bewhiskered man, the smoking, foul-smelling
thing and the object at which the man
takes a smash.
In an unabridged work we should expect
Mr. Ford to tell, of course, why is a United

Service In Siberia.
A Worried Mother No orders
have been Issued for the with
drawal of the 2 7th Infantry, now
stationed at Vladivostok. Siberia. It
is employed on guard duty there,
looking after American property
and assisting in maintaining
order. Your son. having vol
unteered, may be held for the full
period of his enlistment, unless he
was accepted only for the emer
gency. If the latter is the case, then
he will be released from the service
as soon as he can be spared after
peace has been declared, but can
not be held longer than six months.

Frightfulness in Reaction
The German finance minister's plan of
raising $22,500,000,000 by "levies on capital" is
a direct response to the reparation obligations
accepted in Germany's ratification of the peace
treaty. That document calls for the payment
of $20,000,000,000 within the next five years and
such further sums thereafter as may be decided
upon by a reparation commission.
Minister Erzberger has spoken of the tax
rates necessary to make this preliminary pay
ment as "frightful." As now submitted by him,
they are all of that. They are assessed not
against income but against property. Persons
having no more than $1,250 in total property
possessions are exempt, but above that amount
the rates start at 10 per cent and end at 65
per cent, for properties exceeding $750,000.
This means that the wealthier people of
Germany must give up to the state over one
half of all they possess. They cannot do this
all at once. That would involve a forced liqui
dation absolutely ruinous to industry and all
concerned. They will be given time to pay,
but pay they must, first or last, and pay they
must under such a levy if they flee Germany,
as many of them are doing, for they cannot
take their real property with them.
There is no precedent in all history of a
people brought under so heavy an industrial
servitude as this. The billion-dollar indemnity
imposed by Germany on. France in 1871 was
the greatest of the kind known up to that time,
but compared with this preliminary levy on
Germany it was about as 30 days in jail
to the 30 years through which the repara
tion provisions of the peace treaty are to run.
This is German military frightfulness in
reaction upon Germany. It expresses itself in
other terms on the rebound, but they are terms
which can be understood by all. New York

The Sunday Bee.
Why Bolshevism Must Fail
If one wants to know why bolshevism must
fail, all he need to do is to take note of the fact
that the bolshevists have confiscated the
churches of Russia and suppressed the Sunday
schools and prohibited all religious teachings in
public. Then he can meditate upon the fact
that since the beginning of time no govern
ment has ever been maintained that did not
have some kind of religion for a basis.
Lenine and Trotzky were shrewd in many
ways, but they were foolish in the matter of
religion. Had they been wise they would have
at least "used" the churches or encouraged
religion of some kind. It need not have been
the Christian religion; it need not have been
the Orthodox Greek church as established in
Russia, although that would have been the logi
cal thing. But to break down the churches
with one mandate and to forbid religious teach
ing that was suicide, however long it may be
until the corpse is buried.
But it would not have been bolshevism had
it not sought to destroy religion. Religion
and bolshevism are as far apart as the poles,
and they can never be made to work in har
mony which is to say that bolshevism cannot
be made to work at all. In his daily needs
man demands religion of some kind. He may
find consolation in the worship of Buddha, he
may find solace in the contemplation of the
words of Confucius, he may pray to Mahomet
or to Zoroaster, or he may commune with God
r but the fact remains that unless man worships
at some shrine, unless he takes note of some
thing besides the material things of life, neither
his home nor his government will endure nor
peace and happiness fall to his lot. Columbus

The lice Babies.
HyoJ have no right to keep me
J. a prisoner in this stuffy
hive," said Peggy Bee to Busybuzz.
"Set me free this Instant."
"You'll never be free," sniffed
Busybuzz. "Here you work and here
you die. Follow me.
There Was nothing else to do, so
Peggy reluctantly obeyed. She
made up her mind, however, that
she would seize the first chance to
escape. And if she couldn't escape
any other way she might consent to
take part in Honeydew's revolt and
become the new queen of the hive.
Busybuzz led the way to a high
wall in which were set hundreds and
hundreds of cavelike holes or cells.
Over the wall were crawling active
lady bee workers. Looking into a
cell as she passed by, Peggy saw
curled up in it a plump, white,
wormlike body with a head resem
bling a bee. In all the other cells
were other plump bodies.
"Why, they look like babies bee
babies," exclaimed Peggy.
"Of course they do and why
shouldn't they," sniffed Busybuzz.
They are bee babies, and your Job
is to 'tend them."
"My gracious, what a lot of them
there are to tend," gasped Peggy.
Busybuzz now called to an ener
getic lady bee who was bustling
around among the babies.
"Fuzzyhum, this is a new nurse
maid I've brought you. I don't know
whether she is much good, for she
is the looking around kind, but you
may get some use out of her."
"Hum! Hum: Keep her yourself

"I don't want her," declared Busy

her busy and I'm busy enough now,

Busybuzz for the clover fields.
"Hum! Hum! I guess I'm as
busy as she is," rumbled Fuzzyhum
crossly. "With all these babies to
feed I haven't time to waste on
"I'm not an Idler," declared Peg
gy indignantly. "If the babies need
feeding I'll help you feed them.
Then I'm going home."
"Hum ! Hum! Bee babies always
need feeding. You can feed 'em and
feed 'em, but they'll not stay fed,
and new babies are always coming
along by the hundreds."
Peggy didn't wait to argue that
matter further. She pitched right
in and began to feed the baby bees.
And she quickly found that she
had a real job on her hands. There
were hundreds of them, all hungry
for dinner. As she d them she
fotgot she was a prisoner and that a
plot was afoot to make her queen.
"How funny they look!" she gig
gled. "Hum! Hum! They look no fun
nier than you did when you were
a bee baby," rasped Fuzzyhum.
Peggy giggled a bee giggle for, of
course, she had never been a bee
baby. Fuzzyhuni heard her giggle
and tlew into a rage.
"Quit that laughing and get busy,"
she ordered. "We haven't time for
gigtrling or nonsense in a beehive."
Some of the babies were queen
bee babies, some were worker ba
bies and some were boy bee babies,
or drones. The queen bee babies
got the most food and the best, tha
workers came next, and the poor lit
tle drones had to take what was
left. Peggy was sorry for the
drones, and she sought to feed them
like the others.
"Don't bother with those lazy
drones," ordered Fuzzyhuni. "There
are too many In the hive now. We
don't try to raise them."
"How awful!" exclaimed Teggy.
"You bees are as bad to boy babies
as the Chinese are to girl babies."
"I don't know anything about the
Chinese, but I do know that drones
eat a lot of food they don't work for
and a hive is better off without
them," said Fuzzyhum. "We sting
'em to death or drive 'em out to
"That's cruel. I'll put a stop to It
when I'm queen," cried Peggy.
"Buzz! Buzz, Buzz! Treason!
Treason! Who are you who dares
to talk of being queen?"
Peggy whirled around to find her
self facing an irate lady bee much
larger and more Imposing looking
than the workers. And the lady
bee's eyes were flashing with anger
and her stinger was ready for ac
tion. "The queen!" rumbled Fuzzyhum.
"Now you're in for a row."

Future of Dairy Farming.
Wahoo, Neb., July 14. To the
Editor of The Bee: One of the most
prominent Saunders county farmers
yesterday, in commenting on two
articles that appeared in the last is
sue of the Country Gentleman,
namely, "Nebraska's Great Farmers'
Union," with its picture of the Farm
ers Creamery at Fremont, and the
article on "The Dairy Man's Difficul
ties," stated that, in his opinion, the
methods of farming will be revolu
tionized during the next five years.
His first prediction is that the best
land in the county will raise in price
until it reaches $500 per acre and
never drop below that price and
that, eecond, the large tracts will
give place to smaller and more In
tensively cultivated farms. He pre
dicts that in the future the Saun
ders county farmer will devote more
of his time to the producing of poul
try and dairy products, they being
more dependable as a surer income
and pin less of his hopes on grain
He believes that the paving of
roads In Douglas county through to
Fremont, Valley and Yutan, the es
tablishment of the Yutan bridge and
th? eventual hard surface roads that
will cross Saunders county, east and
west and north and south, will re
suit in the establishment of general
trucking lines that will pick up the
farmer's milk, cream and eggs at
his door and his small fruits that he
will eventually produce and take
them to the markets at Lincoln,
Omah.i and Fremont, relieving him
of the whole responsibility.
He further states that one of the
reasons why the Saunders county
farmers have not taken kindly to the
dairying products is that the fer
tility of the soil and the resulting
good grain crops have caused a dis
like on his part for dairy enterprises
because of the time required in get
ting th? products on the market, but
that if this objection is removed the
Saundes county farmers generally
will go more to dairying and small
farming. The scarcity of help and
the 6ti!l increasing cost of machin
ery, etc., is another item which he
states wilL influence the building up
of the smaller farms. .

Omaha, July 15. To the Editor of
The Bee: Man Is made of three
parts, part is energy, part is divine
and part is pleasure loving. If he
lacks one of these he is an unnatural
man. Now, God gives us seven days
in every week, six days for ourselves
and one to worship Him. We are
spending six days in work, the one
day left in pleasure seeking. Where
does God come in? As an individ
ual how can God bless us when we
steal His one day?
As the man is, so is the nation.
Are you not afraid our great United
States will crumble and fall as
others have done in the past, when
they forgot God? Now if a law is
passed, stopping all amusements on
Sunday, where is the working man
going to get his pelasure? We don't

Now, I believe I see a way out of
this trouble, if someone will only
grasp my idea and push it along.
Why cannot we, as a nation, have
Wednesday and Saturday afternoons
as holidays, and make every man,
woman and child take one of these
holidays, and have all of our games
then? I think it would be only a
short time until our churches would
be enlarged, and we would have a
quiet Sunday instead of the noisy
ones we now have. Look not with
contempt on the man that goes to a
Siinciav ball game, but rather on Mr.
Money Bags that cannot let him
have one afternoon a week, and
on our lawmakers and on our voters.
We would be Just as rich and a
great deal better, to spend a small
part of our six days Jn pleasure and
give to God the one day He asks
of us. A MOTHER.
