Admonishing the legislature against too much
lawmaking, which advice deserves approval as
sound, tiie governor in his message suggests a
considerable number of changes in existing laws.
These recommendations, he says, are based on
experience of result from consultations held with
the representatives of various groups or organ
izations. Many of these look to the modifica
tion of existing statutes and are .of a nature that
will permit the postponement of debate with
relation to them.
- CompIete( revision of the tax laws is neces-.
. sary, the governor says, but he prudently recom
mends that it be not undertaken at the present
7 session. He asks that the tax commissioner,
' provided for by the new constitution, be clothed
with power of sufficient scope to "not only en
force the tax laws and get the maximum amount
of taxable property upon the assessment rolls,
but to gather during the present biennium the
: information that will enable, a thoroughly wis
j -and complete revision of tax laws at the next
j general session of the legislature." The wisdom
i of this recommendation will be found in the :
; latter clause. This will be appreciated when.
read in connection with the following paragraph
"j of the message, which deals with the taxation
j of intangibles.
ji Changes in the law governing paroles sug
. gested by thej governor would exclude from
parolable. offenses all crimes against the person.
! Parole should be denied to all except first
! offenders. Judges should be given discretion
between determinate and indeterminate sen
tences, and the consent of the trial judge and
f prosecuting attorney should be given in writing
L before an application for parole can be con
sidered by the board. Hearings should be in
i public, and a record kept. These provisions will,
iwe think, da away with much of the clamor that
! has been raised against the existing law on
; account of the practices that have grown up
. under it. The governor goes pretty far, how
Jicver, in suggesting that it be made a felony to
approach a member or an employe of the board
with reference to a pardon or parole, save at a
1 public meeting of the board. Communications
of this kind may be perfectly legitimate, and
:,such should not be forbidden; the members of
. the board should know how to protect them
selves from the other kind. So, too, is the added
' suggestion that a heavy penalty be prescribed
;;for any newspaper publishing a "misleading
S statement regarding the acts of public officials in
I the administration of this law." Nebraska's
" libel Taws at ' present afford ample protection,
'and the official action finally speaks for itseif.
Nor docs the wisdom of the governor shine
the brightest in his proposal that the .remaining
?- public school lands of the state be sold and the
i 'proceeds put into a fund from which to loan
:' soldiers money to build' homes. If Nebraska is
.'.to make any provision for the benefit of the
j service men, it shoult not be at the expense of
f. the public school endowment. Many recoirt
:l mendations for changes in ,the law to benefit the
?'. allied agricultural interests of the state are made,
;j ?nd these will certainly get the attention of the
fi lawmakers. ;
ji Governor McKelvie also very properly asks
?-that the "blue sky" law be overhauled in some
V regards, to give it better effect. ' In relation to
. the primary law, he recommends adoptionf a
preprimary! convention, with a free-for-all,

s voted on at the nomination primary. Either of
f these, he feels, will do away with much of the
l present complaint, and will preserve parry organ
ization and responsibility from the attacks now
' being made by the minority groups. "It is no
longer wise to follow the politically expedient
. course of avoiding this issue," he says, and pcr

Japan, no one on this side is very apt to become
greatly perturbed over what happens there.
Also, the baroness will find Americans
prone to overlook notices. They are accustomed
to hearing predictions from able prophets closer

well as warnings, i When the little brown
brothers begin to blockade the port of New
York and to pull,. -down what some irreverent

Out of the mists if Sparticism, bolshevism
.militarism and other fog-breeding isms that,
hover over tterlrn, rises the commanding torm ot
a sccress. Baroness ,Irma von Boburg, who nd
mits that she is successor to Madame de Thebes,
late of Paris and now of the hereafter, has been
seeing things, some of which affect America.
She sees the Statue of Liberty surrounded by
brown men, with a great rope stretched across
t,hc harbor. This she is inclined to interpret as
a lorecast ot a Japanese invasion, sne also sees
a lot of secret societies meeting, and has a vision
of a council somewhere in Japan, the outcome
of which is very disconcerting for its central
figure. He Is cut off suddenly by the blow of
a sword. These portents are gven us free of
charge, along with a caution" to look out.
Of course, all America will be grateful to
the dear baroness, and will proceed accordingly.
It might be suggested that her vision of brown
tnen around the Statue-of Liberty can be ob
served almost any day. She has probably
glimpsed a view of guard mount or dress parade
on Governor's Island, or maybe has seen a flock
of stevedores going by on some of the big freight
Sarw s. SX s to the picture of the convocation in
t Warriors for Peace.
In a speech to 1,000 prominent men and
women at the $l,000-a-plate dinner of the Euro-pea-!
Relief Council at the Hotel Commodore,
last week, Gen. Pershing said amid great ap
plause: As we contemplate the causes of the World
War and realize its horrors, every right think
ing man and woman must feel like demanding
that, some steps be taken to prevent its recur
rence. An important step would be to curtail
expenditure's for the maintenance of navies and
armies. ' "
Disarmament and pacifism, twin theories that
some claimed were utterly destroyed by the
world war, ard today finding strange advocates,
la. those ante-bellum days, women's clubs, col
lege professors, 'ministers, and all those Jrankly
admitting themselves to he idealists, were hard
at work for world peace, but today it is those
who lay claim to hard-headed practicality that
have taken up the cause. ,
Here is a British naval expert arfd member of
Parliament, Lieut. Commander J. M. Kenworthy,
vho issues this New Year message:
The best thing that could possibly happen
to the world is this: At a Certain hour on a
certain day. and a certain month, to be ar
ranged, every 'SHip of War belonging to every
nation should be taken into deep, water and
sunk with a pre-arranged ceremony, ' officers
of the navies of all nations being liberally
pensioned, iheir pensions' depending on their
not agitating for more warships.
No American in public life has gone so far
in his recommendations, although a resolution
now before the senate looks toward a gradual
scaling down of arrftament. Wha$ the British ,
naval officer has proposed at sea is paralleled by
the proposal, recently made by Gen. Tasker H?
Bliss in an address at Philadelphia in which he
explained why, as a professional soldier, he dis
liked war, and dwelt on the wastage of life and
property due to militarism. He would have the
United States say to the League of Nations:
We will agree with you that each -nation
that so desires shall keep and build whatever
frontier and coast fortifications it wishes. Forti
fications cannot stride across the earth devas- ,
tating fields and destroying cities.
We will agree with you that each nation
may mainain its navy. No navy without an
army can conquer anq hold foreign territory.
We will agree with you on a date when we
sfiall simultaneously abolish any military
system whieh is solely necessary for inter
national war. -
We will agree with you on a date, as re
mote as the existing conditions make abso
lutely necessary, when we shall begin the
gradual reduction of our armed forces until
they are at the limit necessary for the main
tenance of internal order. In comings to an
agreement about this we will accept any
reasonably just principle of proportion, pro
vided it results in a reasonable and material
reduction, but admitting in advance that re
duced armaments can no more be equalized
than excessive ones. We will, trust to the
ultimate good sense of the common peoples
of the nations, who suffer most from exces
sive armaments, to see to it that when the
movement has once begun it is pushed as
rapidly as may be to its proper limit.
We will agree with you on the proper
amounts of material to be kept on'l&id for
the reduced forces. And we will further agree
with you to cease the manufacture of material
until the amounts now on hand are reduced to
what we agree upon as necessary for the re
duced force. - "
War, says this veteran, cannot be regulated
by any tribunal, and in "the late conflict prac
tically every rule of civilized warfare was broken
by both sides. He believes also that the use of
force between nations cinnot be abolished or.
materially postponed while armaments continue
to pile up.
Those who are surprised to hear a military
leader argue against the institution of war might
recall the words of General Sherman and then
listen to the genuine sentiment expressed by
many soldiers who served bravely overseas.
Hardheaded international business men, soldiers,
sailots and statesmen show signs of uniting in
this' movement for the reduction of armament,
both on the Count of expense and danger, and
the idea may gain in favor until it far out
shadows the question of the League of Nations,
which relies on force for its operation and has
as yet made no advance toward lightening the
burden of armament.

highest and newest manifestations, is not acces

Banks Doing Their Share.
Statements of the Omaha banks showing con
dition at the close of business on December 29
afford conclusive proof that money is not so
tight as some would think. The totals show
a decrease of $32,000,000 in deposits and only
16,000,000 itrloans as compared with the same 1
day in lpl9. This is encouraging from the bor
rower's side, but the proportion between loans
and deposits is even more significant. In 1919
the total deposits were $127,330,224 and total
loans $107,571,931; in 1920 the totals Svere
$95,692,123 and $91,637,546 respectively. This
shows that while the banks held almost $20,000,
000 more of deposits tha loans on December
29, 1919, a year later tire spread was but $4,000,
000. Reduction of idle money by 80 per cent in
the year surely does, not indicate a disposition
on part of the banks to restrict borrowers un-;
necessarily. On the other hand, the falling off
in deposits does suggest a reason why some ac
commodation may have been declined. With
$32,000,000 less on hand, it hardly is to be ex
pected that the banks would greatly increase the
loans carried. It is likely that never in the his
tory of Omaha banks has so great a proportion
of their deposits been actually employed. Money
is at work, and credit is getting stronger all the
time, but "cats and dogs" do not get much
attention. .

Sir: Up In Wisconsin there was a skunk farm
adjoining the railroad right of way, where thou
sands of the' pretty little creatures were raised
for their skins. On this particular night a larse
number of them, escaping through a break In
the enclosure, started on a moonlight pilgrim
age down the railroad track. When, a short time
later, the express bore down on them, they
bravely stood their ground, and, although many
were killed, registered a unanimous and vlgeabus
protest. It being summer time, the car windows
were all open, and the awakened passengers
emerged from their berths gasping for breath.
At the next stop, a division point, even the car
Inspectors fled precipitately, and had to be
coerced into performing their duties; and at each
station thereafter, "-every one In sight suddenly
had business elsewhere the minute the train
arrived. - OLD TIMER. .

towns to drive the goat around to

and hitcnes it onto the goat and in this way no
middle man enters Into the deal. Milking ma

Until yesterday t had never heard
that when you see a person the
whites of whoso ieyps have a dis
tinctly bluish cast you may expect
his bones to break under slight
provocation. Today I know that I am
Just 80 years behind the times. The
condition wus first described by
Amnion in 1841.
I have noticed that teeth with a
bluish cast, a kind of bluish porcelain
white, are very brittle, and chip off
very easily: on the other hand, that
nuts could be cracked safely by
the Jaws of persons having yel
lowish teeth.
But how many blue scleortic peo-1
pie I have overlooked I will never
know. In the language of Amelle
Rives, who had Herod exclaim
relative to Marianne "I have missed
one 'kiss for all eternity."
, After Ammon wrote about this in
L1S41 not much about it was added
to the sum total or information until
1900, when Eddowes wote about a
girl with blue eye whites who had 10
bony fractures in two years. Her
father had 'the same kind of eyes,
and likewise had brittle bones.
Here were three links inheritance,-
blue eye whites, and brittle
bones. Soon Rostock and Hartman
reported a famUy in which they
traced the combination for five gen
erations. They examined 55 mem
bers of this family, and found 31
of them had the combination. They
say that in a family where this
combination is running it affects 82
per cent of th females and 44 per
cent of the males.
Somewhere along ln that period
somebody added a fourth charac
teristic to-wit. shortness of stature.
Then came Bronson, and added a
fifth otosclerosis, causing deafness,
which develops at about 30 years
of age.
Bronson studied the condition In
several families, one of which was
his own. In one family he studied
84 persons belonging to four genera
tions. Twenty-one had gray-blue
eye whites (scleras). 20 suffered
from brittle bones, seven had
otosclerosis and deafness.. The deaf
ness does not come on until 30
years of age and after.
In a study made by two Holland
ers they found one family of blue
sclerotic people, of whom 11 were
deaf and 10 had brittle' bonea. In
a second family they found three
deaf members.
To this combination some" one has
added a sixth, but less Important
quality, to-wit tendency to develop,
under slight provocation. The con-

Oxford, Neb., Jan. 8.--To the Ed
itor of The Bee: It would seem that
with our many national troubles con
gressmen - could employ' all their
statesmanship and energy in safe
guarding and Improving the Interests
of our own country rather than in
termeddling with the business and
social troubles of Great Britain.
Farmers who borrowed money for
seed and equipment when prices
were at the peak are confronted
with bankruptcy from paralysed
markets. Some of our returned sol
diers are caught with this class,
hilo others find foreigners who
evaded service filling Jobs that by
moral right should be theirs. Our
immigration laws need immediate
revision. A wave of crime is upon
us that bids fair to destroy the con-
liOTw been
dltion seems so well
that its eugenic laws
worked out. The condition is in
herited only through the affected
members. Unaffected members of an
unaffected family ,do not transmit
It. Male dilldren of unaffected
females do not develop the combina
tion. Bateson characterizes this
typo of Inheritance as Knight's move,
which term chess player will under
stand, t '
' Some one has said that blue
sclerotlcs is the best of positive
signs because the deafness does not
develop until 80 years, and, though
the bones may be brittle, they may
not have broken.
Boys, look out for the blue
sclerotic girls!
There is Danger. ,
Mrs.' L. S. writes: "ife it dangerous

There is always some danger In
