if WHY WE ARE YET AT WAR.
Considerable debate has been had over the
question as to why we went to-war. Opinion
on this point is crystallizing in a natural fashion.
People are generally reaching the conclusion
that it was not to set up a supergovernment,
whether it be called a "league of nations," or
by liny other name; they are also agreeing
among themselves that it was not for the "four
teen points," most of which were scrapped by
the president himself, or for any. other abstrac
tion. It was to" defend the' United :States :'of
America. Matters had come to a pass where
our people clearly understood that they had to
fight for their homes, either in Europe or on
American soil, and they preferred to fight in
What is more important just at present, how
ever is "Why are we yet at war?" On whom
rests tbe blame for the continuation,, of the
stat of war, technically, of course, for in all
but the name we are at peace with the world.
We have a "commissioner" at Berlin, business
is being carried on between Germany and Amer
ica, and contracts, "combinations, all manner of
things such as grow out of unrestricted com-
muttication between great nations are being at
tended to. Why, Vien, are we "at Mw.ar?"' .
The answer is simple. It is because Presi
dent. Wilson set his mind on having a certain
thing done in one particular way. It did not
matter to him that he was solemnly and for
mally warned beforehand that his plan would'
not j receive the necessary vote of ratification
from the senate, on which the'eonstitution lays
the'jjobligatory duty of reviewing the work of
the president and formally accepting it before
it becomes operative and effective. He believed
that his influence was such that he could induce
a sufficient number of senators to accept his
plan without demur. It has been explained that
i he (did not know exactly what he was going
about; that his limited understanding of the Con
stitution of the United States, which had been'
exhibited in many other directions Jed him into '
making pledges and accepting obligations he
could not redeem. Whether this be true or not,' .!
Mri Wilson pitted his opinion against that of
the ablest jurists of the landj statesmen of wider
experience than his, of ample; information and
unquestioned patriotism, , and , has obstinately
held, to his position in faceof advice and bppo
sition from within as well as from without his
The vjews of these men have had weight
with? the country at large. Dangers that ldrk
In the covenant to which the president has given
his Unyielding devotion have been made plain,
" its pitfalls exposed and ita' weaknesses uncov
ered. Wilfully Ignoring these things, stubbornly
demanding submission to his imperious will, and
relying on a sufficient minority in the senate,
the president encompassed the rejection of the
' . treaty he negotiated, solely because it would
notbe accepted exactly as he submitted it.
that is why we are yet at "war." .

Graft in the Army Goods.
,' Exposure of the wholesale profiteering in
, army goods will shock tut scarcely surprise
anybody. An administration with the record of
the air craft fiasco; the Muscle Shoals, Nitro,
and other extravagances, the reckless, wanton
wase of public money in every direction; co9tty
. munificence in dealing with contractors and par
simonious cheeseparing in handling the soldiers,
would not.be expected toexercise prudence in
disposing of the excessive supplies found on
hand when the war came to an end.
When there was complaint of a scarcity of
food, and theT secretary of war was asked to'
y. release the surplus, he'declined at first, because
he did not want to "disturb prices." The sad
record of mounting food costs since the arm
istice was signed two years ago shows how little
-foundation, there 'was in Mr. Baker's appre
hension in this respect. , Raw material, such as
' wool and cotton, and other things that had been
taken over in enormous quantities -by .the War
department were also withheld at a time when
their release might have brought some relief to
the people who paid for them in the first place,
and now ar paying for .them .again? ..
Think of it: Contractors paid by the gov-
, ernment at the highest prices ever known, that
"production might be stimulated," with profita
of such extent that many millionaires were
created in a short time; then goods that were
bought from; these but not used are sold to
other contractor tt'far less; than cost, and re
tailed to the consumer at even higher prices
than the government originally paid, thus net
ting the profiteers "a i second 'extortionate gam!
History can not parallel this example of in
competence. The Department of Justice has a
bigger job ahead than- did the War department
when it set about to build an army. It will be
to the everlasting shame of the American- peo
ple if these evil doers are not hunted down and
' forced to disgorge some part of their plunder.
But the campaign wilt never be .started under
the administration that permitted the crime to
go ahead. .r '

Dangers of "Home-Brew" Airplanes.
Hope, it may be -said, on authority, rises
" jtermfl in the human breast. In' that it differs

With courage as high -.as his hopes, the in
ventor announces the attempt will be repeated
in spite of the declaration of experiencd aviators
that flight would be dangerous in the extreme,
Success in this case might be equivalent to
failure, through the operation of the well known
law that what comes up must come down.

.Nebraska in the Next Congress.
' It is expected that the republicans of Ne
braska will elect six congressmen in November,
The sitting, members from the state are all can
didates' for re-election, and deserve to be sent
back dn 4heir record. Jn the First district Mr.
Reavis has the experience of several terms, and
has poved his worth to the country, justifying
the confidence of his constituents.
In .the Second Albert W. Jefferis is serving
his first term, but the work to which he has,
been called by the house shows how his ability
has been recognized there, he being looked upon
as one of the really strong men, both on the
floor and in committee. Judge Evans, who rep-
resents the Third district, is also finishing his
first term, but with such signal ditinction that
it may be said Nebraska has never had a better
man in the house. This may be said also with
regard to McLaughlin of the Fourth, who seems
assured as well of his re-election.
W. E. Andrews, now sitting for the Fifth
district, is peculiarly well qualified to dealwith
certain of the vital problems that are pressing
for solution. He has back of him not only the
experience of previous service in the house, but
the value of practical knowledge of the admin
istrative work of the government gained 'while
serving as' auditor of the 'Treasury department
This training' has "fitted him admirably to deal
with revenue and appropriation legislation, and
the benefit of his well stored mind was given the
people on several'occasions during the last ses
sion. Of his election to a second successive term
in congress there should be no doubt.
It seems hardly necessary to recommend
"Uncle Moses" Kin'kaid to the voters of the, "Big
Sixth" district. His long career in congress is
one of honorable service to his constituents and
to the' country, and it would be amazing indeed
if opposition to him should make serious head,!
In fact, Nebraska is now represented in the
house at Washington by a group of men as ca
pable as ever sat there, aid on which the citi
zens may confidently rely for service and watch
ful care of their interest. '
Omaha As -An Art Center.
' There is something more in life than making
money, and Omaha is taking a leading place
among the cities of the middle west in rec
ognizing the necessity for providing means for
culture and wholesome recreation. Just as busi
ness men who have gained success so often turn
their thoughts to other things than the acaTmula
tion of more wealth, so has the city reached a
stage of prosperity when it can take more
thought of the finer things of life.
. Thousands of persons leave the iniddle west
each yearin order to avail themselves of the
cultural advantages offered by the older, cities
of the1 east. There ought to be no real reason
for this : emigration, ' and by extending wider
opportunity in art," music and education, Omaha
will meet a great need of the whole prairie
region. By co-operatingwith the organizations
here at home, the same atmosphere of refinement
can be secured without the drain of so' many
persons of fine 'taste.
This is one of the few cities west of New' York
and Boston containing art galleries that are
worthy of discussion in travel guides. With
classes in drawing and painting opened at a low
fee, and with occasional exhibits from outside,
this city bids fair to progress artistically as
fast as industrially. . , .
Nebraska Women and Morehead., .,,
-v The revolt of the democratic women of Ne

Opposition to prohibition is clear and unmis
takable. Behind it will be jfound' a more sub
stantial reason for the disfavor of. the women
voters. Morehead's record on the suffrage issue
was no better from the woman's.. side than his
stand on prohibition. The faction of the demo

either sidethe record of the democratic gov
ernor does not afford much that is attractive to
the women voters, and they will probably make
this manifest at the coming election.

GIVING BABIES A CHANCE.
Several years ago New Zealand set
a mark in Infant welfare. Of each
1,000 babiea born in that country
only 50 die before reaching l year
.of age. The New Zealand babies are
very healthy and strong and when
they grow up they make fine soldiers
and even finer citizens.
There are sections of the world in
which one-third of the babies die be
fore reaching 1 year of age and a
considerable percentage of those
who escape with their lives are weak
ened for years by the severe illnesses
of their babyhood.
The American Child Hygiene as
sociation reports that in 1919 there
were eight American cities where
the New Zealand record was beaten.
The cities in which battleB have the
best chance, in the order or their
rank, were: Brookline, Mass., 40;
Berkeley, Cal.; Marinette, Wis.;
Aberdeen, Wash.; Everett, Mass.;
Madison, Wis.; Flqua, O., and Ala

towns, the Pacific slope has 8, Mas

It will be noticed that all of these
are email cities. With one exception
