Rebuff For "Cpnscob
When patriotic fervor was at its height, and
thousands upon thousands of Americans were
gladly giving their services in the cause of
world freedom, there appeared a certain num
ber of individuals in many communities who
claimed exemption on the ground' that they
were conscientious objectors which in most
cases meant that they were either cowardly or
disloyal. , . '
But now it develops that, with surprising
impudenc and effrontery, several hundreds of
these "objectors" who disgraced Massachusetts
have made application for the $100 bonus given
by that commonwealth for the "sacrifice and
service" of Massachusetts men who served in
the army or navy during the world war. Thus
these "conscientious objectors" reveal them
ielves in their true character as "unconscienti
ous cowards," afraid to fight for their country,
but bold enough to claim the fighter's reward.
Fortunately, in the person of Charles L. Bur
rill, Massachusetts has a state treasurer who is
true to the trust reposed in him as a patriotic
and capable official. To him is due, as the re
sult of his quiet investigation the exposure of
the cowards who now seek reward for their
cowardice, and it is due to him that these claims
hare been "turned down."
v The action of State Treasurer Burrill is in
striking and agreeable contrast to the action of
the War department officials in not only liberat
ing the "conscientious objectors" and other
flagrant offenders- at Fort Leavenworth, but, in
addition, giving back pay to those who had dis
graced the . American uniform. Pittsburgh
Failure of passage of the so-called Johnson
amendment to the text of the covenant of the
League .of Nations imbedded in the Treaty of
Versailles eleara the way for tha consideration
by the senate of the reservations proposed by
the senate committee on foreign relations. Sev
eral of these have been formally presented to
the senate, so that discussion and voting may
commence at once. Others have been con
sidered by the committee, but their phraseology
is not yet definitely fixed.
Senator McCumber has presented a com
promise set, and it is reported that his are ac
ceptable to the democrats who are ready to vote
for reservations. The "mild" group has also
been put down as willing to give its support to
the McCumber text. These are not all in ac
cord with the views of the majority of the com-
mince, mougn, ana may oe rejected. -Especially
is this true with the one dealing
with the effect of Article X. In the Lodge reso
lution it is provided that America shall be free
until congress acts from, a declaration of war
under the tenth or "any other article" of the
covenant. The McCumber reservation deals
with Article X only, and omits the three im
portant words found in the Lodge amendment.
As war may be declared under at least two
other articles the importance of the omission
will be noted. , , '
Similarly, objection may be laid against the
McCumber and Taft reservations that will per
mit the council of the league to thrust the
United States into an economic war, which dif
fers only in degree from and almost certainly
will lead to an armed war. If the safety of the
country and the perpetuity of American rights
are to be safeguarded at all from the wide
control of the league's council, the provisions
should be carefully worded.
No sign is yet giVen from the White House
as to whether reservations will be accepted at
all by the president, although it is again made
clear, by the vote on the Johnson amendment
that the opponents of the treaty have strength
to 'defeat its ratification without the provisions
deemed necessary for the protection of our
home affairs.
Willie Hoppe' as an Example.
It is recorded that Herbert Spencer once
said: "Moderate proficiency at the game of
billiards is part of a liberal education, but ex
traordinary skill at it is an evidence of a mis
spent youth." If this were to be applied to
Willie Hoppe, the result would be disheartenT
ing. However, this ypung man, for .he still is
young, although familiar to the public for many
years, is entitled to consideration and distinc
tion on the authority of another eminent phil-.
osopher. Emerson, wasn't it, who advised his
followers to do one thing well? Willie
Hoppe does one thing well. Billiard play
ing is his vocation, and he has devoted himself
to ..the game with such assiduity that he has
finally reached an eminence attained by no
other in the history of the game. Thus he af
fords an example aud an inspiration to every
young man starting in life. He chose his life
work, and has followed it single-minded. Bil
liard playing requires cool judgment, absolute
control of nerve and muscle, perfect vision,
imagination and daring. These are the result
of well ordered life. Dissipation in any form
quickly destroys the aelicate touch, and sets the
top-notcher back among the second-raters. It
is not possible for every young man to become
a champion billiard player, but it will hurt none
of them if they take Willie Hoppe as an exam
ple to encourage them in perseverance along
whatever line they have selected for building up
a place in the world,
Tragedy of the Lost Airmen,
Something inexpressibly sad surrounds the
fate of the two young American airmen, who
were murdered by Mexicans after they had suf
fered starvation ,for nineteen days. Messages
scrawled on thc-surface of the airplane they
left behind tell something of their , feelings
when they felt death was near. Such of these
as are given out are manly, tender farewells to
jmother and father, sisters and brothers, with
no sign of fear or dread of death. No record
is leff of what thev thonerht wlipn rliscnvprrl
)y the men who afterwards slew them. We
"may .scarcely imagine the feelings, of these
brave youngsters when then joy of rescue was
turned to despair by the heartless savagery of
their captors. It will be easy to believe they
lost nonej of , their courage, though.. Within a
short distance of safety they were "slain, just
as many another American has been by the
lawless Mexicans, for the value of the few
possessions they had. yTheir lives have been
added to the long account laid up against the
uncivilized subjects of the incompetent govern
ment that has made Mexico a hell instead of .
the, paradise it might well become.
Vote for the School Bonds.
If any opposition to the proposed school
bond issue exists, it has, not yet come out into
the open. This, however, should not serve to
lull the "advocates of the measure into a sense
of false security. .Unless a larger share of the
voters come out than were present and counted
when the big road bond proposal was voted on
some weeks ago, a resolute minority of the
total vote can easily defeat the plans of the
school board. Necessity for the buildings pro
ject is admitted; arguments made by the rep-i.
resentatives of the board have been conclusive
on this point. The only danger that appears is
in too much confidence on part of the sup
porters of the measure, who should make every
effort to get out a full vote, in order that no
doubt may be cast on the result. Patrons of
the schools are interested in this matter, which
vitally concerns them, and all should take time
to go to the polls next Tuesday to give the good
cause a boost. No harm will result if the ma
jority for the bonds is several times greater
than the vote against

Raymond Hitchcock on the
European Situation .
KarlR.Wtchinin"NW.w !.
"Poor bankrupt Europe," sighed Raymond
Hitchcock. "Poor bankrupt Europe. A room
at the Piccadilly is three pounds ten, a dinner
for two in any coxy corner at the Ritz at least
five quid and a suit of clothes 10 times that
figure. That's London. by two or
three and you have Paris. Yet there is a wait
ing list a block long at every London hotel.
.You can't get a table at the Rit unless you
know the head waiter personally and even if
you were wearing a barrej it would be . three
months before any Bond street tailor would
deliver you a pair of trousers. , ,
"Poor bankrupt Europe!" the comedian
sighed again. "You can't buy a seat in any
playhouse except for weeks in advance. The
jewelers and silversmiths are running three
shifts and a lot of aristocrats don't know where
their next Rolls-Royce is coming from. Yet
we Americans are told that we must help bank
rupt Europe. I've chipped in o three different
collections today for indigent Europeans. It
was so funny I couldn't resist
"The truth of the situation is that those who
are at work abroad do not want to leave their
positions because they are making so much
money, and those who are not at work have no
intention of resuming it. These latter have
taken the stand that they ought to be sup
ported and as their governments encourage
them in it by paying them for not working it's
impossible to do anything' with them.
"When I was In London I went to my old
tailor and ordered a suit of clothes. Fifty
pounds,' he asked me, and said he couldn't de
liver it for three months. And he explained
the delay by the fact that his coatmakers only
worked when they felt like it. I encountered
the same situation when I tried to have a mo
tor car repaired. I was told that a few of the
mechanics might work a half day the following
week. Even the offer of a bonus had no effect.
I have never received any of my laundry from
the Paris hotel where I stopped. Old residents
of the French capital told me that laundry was
often returned nine months after, being sent
out. And yet "we Americans over there are
asked to loan money to those people, to give
money to them, and to make their lot easier,
j "There's only one way to deal with this sit
uation. When we have a lot of indigent rela
tives who won't work there's only one thing
to do. I know from experience. I used to
have a lot of them. They used to loaf month
in and month out and write me for money.
And, like a big boob, I used to give it to them.
But one dayfI got to thinking how foolish it
was for me to work the year around while they
loafed. So without warning I cut them all
off. For a year I didrj't give a nickel to an
iiAdigent relative, no matter how pitifully they
pleaded. And what was the result? At the
end of the vear I didn't have a single indigent
relative. Did they die? I should say not.
They all went to work and waxed exceedingly
fat, as the good book says.' It was the best,
thing that ever happened to them;
"And that's just what we should do for our
indigent European friends. I Cut them off with
out a nickel. They'll soon go to work if we
stop feeding them. And they'll be better off
for it.
"I hada peek at Belgium where this cho
mage. as they call it. is flourishing. The work
men hav-j been getting IS francs a day to do
nothing, 'naturally they won't go to work for
20 francs, as they figure it is only 5 francs
more for their day's work. I met a few aris
tocrats who were anxious to earn a little money.
One Roumanian prince begged me to take him
as a chorus man. But I found it impossible to
get any workmen to do anything. When I ,
sueeested to the burgomaster of Brussels that
it might be a good idea to close the schools and 1
teach the children to go to work he said; We
depend upon the generosity of your great coun
try. America!' ' ,
"It would be interesting to see how much
we could collect over there for some of our I-Won't-Works.
I don't believe we could col
lect a nickel except among ourselves. We
have told them so many times how much we
enjoyed giving that they're convinced.
"Needless to say I'm glad to be home again
and if the Statue of Liberty ever sees me again
she'll have to turn her head around to Broad
way and Forty-second street. If I hadn't been
a married man I would have knelt, down to
the dear lady and begged her to be my w-ife
and the mother of my children I was so glad
to get back to America."
i Which Shall IttBe?
"Go ahead and move!" shouted the landlord
over the telephone unexpectedly when his
renter threatened to get out if the flat wasn't
fixed up. " .'''.'
It looks as if the administration in Wash
ington were in the plight of the renter' with ref
erence (to Mexico. The executive department
sent a note to the Carrnza government about
two months ago saying that the United States
government might be forced to adopt a radical
change of policy toward that country if "the
lives of American citizens continue to remain
unsafe and these murderers (of American citi
zens) continue by reason of the unwillingness or
inability of the Mexican government to afford
adequate protection." The reply of the Carranza
government was that it "had made every possi
ble effort and would continue to make such ef
fort to safeguard American lives and property
on Me xican soil, but that it was unreasonable
to expect of the Mexican authorities that they
could prevent all cases of murderous banditry
and capture all criminals.
So far as we recall or are aware the formal
correspondence on the subject ceased at this
point. A senate committee, however, is investi
gating Mexican a'ffairs and Mexican offenses
against citizens of this country with a view to
settling upon a. policy to pursue. The appoint
ment of this committee does not invalidate the
warning note of the State department. In the
face of that note an American consular 'agent
in Mexico has been seized by bandits and held
for $150,000 ransom, if advices from Puebla be
Washington has been informed about 'the
case. What is the State department going to do
about it? If the ransom is not paid the pre
sumption is the captive will be put to death.
He happens to be an official representative of
the American government itself. We can't go
on indefinitely paying the ransom monies de
manded. We can't wait indefinitely on Mexico,
to "afford adequate protection" and still make
good on- the warning note as American opinion
interprets that note. Are we to "come across"
by goingacross to stay until the job is finished,
or are we going to back up as we did in the
Vera Cruz affair, in the Villa chase, and more
recently in the pursuit of the scoundrels paid to
release two American aviators who had been
captured and held for ransome? It seems to be
up to Uncle Sam to "go ahead and move," as
per promise, or to back away again and brand
himself a quitter. . 1

Rural School Consolidation.
Syracuse, Neb., Oct 15 To the
Editor of Tha Bee: Consolidated
schools. I claim, ara aa Injustice to
the children of fie rural schools,
where they are so large that trucks
will have to be employed to trans
port the children to and from
school. One consolidated school Is
using hog trucks to haul the chil
dren to school. The condition of
our roads In winter and spring at
times, is almost Impassible for a
team of horses. The farmers are
not in favor of a six or eight-mile
ride every morning for their chil
dren in cold months. They catch
cold fast enough aa it Is. Some will
have to stand on the corner and
wait for the truck as the trucks do
not come to all of the homes.
Just think of small children wait
ing on the corner for a truck. May
be the truck has gone. The children
will wait and maybe freeze in the
winter time. Any one having
driven a truck knows that they do
not have full control of them on
slippery rods. They are liable to
be ditched, almost any time.
Our county redistrictlng commit
tee must not have understood the
law, as their new districts were 25
square miles or more, not more or
less.. The farmers think this con
solidation law is a little premature.
The majority of the farmers will tell
you they are in favor of rural school
consolidation, but until cross roads
are paved or the aeroplane industry
is more highly developed it will be
best to limit the size of consolidated
districts to less than' half of the
proposed districts.
Three years ago two districts in
our country consolidated. No.'s to
and 98, and now the new proposed
districts cut this district in the cen
ter, doing away with it altogether.
The s6hool house costing 15,000
would be an. almost complete loss,
as it would cost about as much as it
is worth to move it to either of the
new proposed locations.

For Boys to Make
A Rack For Mother's Pie Tint.
, The boy who likes to make things
can always keep his tools busy by
looking about the kithchen to dis
cover little things to devise to make
mother's work easier.
Did you ever notice how pie tins
and pot covers are always getting
hidden beneath other utensils on the
shelves and how she has to search
for them when she needs them
most? Why not make her a wall
rack to hold them? Here is a sim
ple pattern:
Search through the wood-boxes
in t he basement or on the kindling
pile for some clear, straight-grain
pieces of pine that is not split or
blemished. You will need three
strips, two inches wide, one strip
three inches wide, and another
about four inches wide all about 25
inches long, For uprights you will
need three pieces, seven-eights
inches thick, about four inches wide,
and 11 inches long. Of course you
might get the material at a lumber
yard, but you will probably find it
in the kindling pile. If the tools
are sharp and you are expert with
them, you might work it up out of
oak, birch or other hard wood.
The three uprights should be cut
out according to the pattern shown
in the drawing. The three-inch
strip forms the bottom; the four
inch strip forms the lower part of
the back; and the three two-inch
strips are nailed on as shown. Use
shingle nails with pine; screws with
oak. Bore two half-inch holes
through the upper strip, before it
is fastened on, so that the rack may
be hung on two nails.
When the carpenter work is com
plete, trim up all the joints, sand
paper it thoroughly, and gave jt
two coats of white "outside" paint
As tins and covers are usually be
tween nine and 10 inches in i dia
meate, each compartment will hold
several of them. . It is perfectly
possible, however, to add other com
partment, allowing 11 inches be
tween the uprights.

Making Merry on Hallowe'en.
Your barn, the garage, or a clean,
dry cellar will be a splendid place
for the party, making candlesticks
from potatoes, and if pumpkins are
scarce, empty boxes may be covered
with orange ootored paper and have
faces cut in the covers through
which the candle light gleams.
If you are able to get some phos
phorscent paint, sketch a witch, a
cat and an owl on the walls. They
will show in a ghostly way when
the lights are put out. Two or three
new brooms will alco serve for dec

black crepe paper and attach to
them as if the bats were hiding in
the brooms.
Games to Play.
- Hide a good many nuts in piles
of straw or heaps of leaves. If you
are giving the' party in the house,
the nuts may be hidden in baskets
of sawdust. The guests hunt for
them, and the game is won by the
player who finds the most in a cer
