. We are nearing the fulfillment of the predic
tion made by Jan Smuts, when iakiiig utrewcll
of . England, that whatever form of government
the Russians set up for themselves, the world
would have, to accept. It is not enough to tell
ourselves fhat' bolshevism is dying of its own
weight. If the world is to be made really safe
for democracy and orderly processes of gov
ernment are to endure, the onward sweep of
Leninism must be met by something more et
fective than merely withholding recognition.' It
will be far better to give -him and the soviuts
such credit as is apparent, and then meet un
reason with reason. Unless some such steps are
taken, the "yellow peril," so often referred to
may become a reality.

;; International War Debts.
The storm stirred up by Senator Reed over
the loans made by the United States to the Al
lies during the war period, and since, may serve
to bring about a definite understanding as to the
eventual settlement of those debts. Mr. Austin
Chamberlain, chancellor of the exchequecjn the
British imperial; cabinet, is credited with having
made a proposal for the cancellation of interna
tional obligations growing out of the war. While
, Secretary Houston declines to name the nation
that made the approach to the United States on
i the point, Mr. Chamberlain, in a public address
last week, admitted it was at his motion. . He
explained that the burden Would fall on Great
Britain heavier than on the United States, a?
the British loans to other countries engaged in
the war are far in excess of ours, His purpose
is to relieve as far as possible the distress prev
alent m the smaller countries. ' .
When this matter was first brought forward,
some two years ago, it was rejected by the Brit
ish and French alike, and did not, get serious at
tention in this country. Nor has it yet been dis
cussed on it's merits. For the United States it
would mean that an "asset amounting to almost
' nine and a quarter billions on its face, with accu
mulated interest at the rate of $450,000,000 a year,
' would be cancelled. Yet the asset is of such
doubtful value, worth nothing at present save
as a book item, that some advantage may be
seen in its being charged off and added to the
net cost of the war.
Great Britain bwes us' $4,000,000,000, but": a
considerable portion of this was borrowed only
to be loaned again to France, Italy and Greece.
Czechoslovakia was financed directly from
Washington, and a respectable sum was invested
in the Kerensky government in an effort to
keep Russia on the front line. Other similar
loans are included in the general sum. , It is
highly improbable that anything will be realized
from these debts in a long timet if ever, and this
is why the British chancellor of the exchequer
has suggested a general wiping of the slates, in
order that a great load will be lifted from the
backs of the little nations.
Such a contribution to charity, for that is what
it amounts' to. would be, magnificent, but it is
not likely to be made. One of the best pre
ventives of war, not always safe but efficacious
to a degree',"is to require payments of debt con
tracted during "war. Xo disposition is manifest
in any-quarter to forgive Germany the indemnity
charge, and' no i less reason exists for pursuing
that course than for charging off the debts be-

.many. ; .';s " . 7 ' '. .
.'.'It is riot a matter of sentiment at all. The
United fJlates loaned its credit to its associates
in the war as a means for winning. To expect
payment now is quite as much a matter ' of
routine business as it -was for the A. E. F. to
pay cash for whatever supplies it secured in
France. . '.h '
Let's Get This Straight.
Not the least deplorable aspect of the fight
for House Roll No. 1 is the deception persisted
in with regard to the "extension of an existing
plant." The inference naturally is that,, the
Metropolitan Water District of Omaha is in pos
session of a plant susceptible of being expanded
into one that will serve to light the streets and
supply the electric current needed for commun
ity uses. Nothing could be more unfair to the
public. - ' - ..
It is true the water district does 'own a
"plant," located at Minne Lusa, capable of de
veloping around 75-horsepower, and the utmost
capacity of which is employed in lighting the
pumping station and grounds. . Thomas ,'tle
Quincy or Jules Verne might project the pic
ture of that tiny machine to-such, proportions
as will supplant the enormous engines required
to generate the power actually -furnished '? to
Omaha by the Nebraska Power company, . bub
the practical mind must be sensible only to 'its
absurdity. .;.?, , ..'-?;'''
Nor. is the impression that the steam plant'
at Minne Lusa is to be supplemented by a water
power, vaguely located "somewhere on the Platte
river," less unfair. Engineers of standing who
have studied the question are familiar with the
difficulties in the way of generating extensive
power from the Platte or other Nebraska streams
of like character, and it would be doing the gen
eral manager of the water district little credit
to evert hint that he is not thoroughly posted on
the whole situation in this regardV 1
House Roll No. 1, if it means anything
beyond clothing the Water board with addi
tional power, looks to the establishment of an
other costly steam power plant for the geneia-.
tion of electric current to, serve the city. State-s
ments or insinuations to the contrary are made
to deceive. "
Millionaires and Suicide.
1 Thirty-three millionaires committed suicide
'last year, and thus flickers out the illusion that
; all people need to make them happy is wealth.,
. .There is, it is true, a great deal of guff about
lire blessings of poverty and the curse of riches
tliut probably ha3 no other aim than to make
the poor man less dissatisfied, but, the general
fact is that one who' does not find more happi
ness than sorrow in 'one condition of life would
not find it iuany other. ' '
; ' The statistics of the Sarc-a-Lifc league,
which tell of the self-destruction of 6,171 persons
in 1920, do not tell what reasons the departing
millionaires found for their deed. It may be
that their income tax appeared too high, or their
excess profits tax gave them unrestrainable
sorrow. Parhaps some of them had quarreled
with their wives, or despairing of obtaining any
heat from the janitor, jumped from the window
, of their apartment. Maybe illness, or excesses
had weakened the will power, or it is possible
that they had been disappointed in love. The
same human tribulations that meet us all were
theirs with the single exception of lack of money.
There may be suspected a tendency on their
part to fancy that their fortune put them above
these considerations and would get them what
ever they wanted, and the result shows itself in
the weakened ability to withstand and conquer
trouble that ended in death. ,

Where Russia Looms Large.
' Bciore the house naval affairs committee Sir
Philip Gibbs, the well established British news
paper correspondent, gave an excellent reason
for paying some attention to Russia. Gibbs is
not only an experienced dbserver but an acute
analyst as we'ltr and his opinion on international
questions is always worth having. When he
rays that no conference on armament is worth
while holding, unless Russia be represented,
then the authorities, may well ponder the situa
tion from the angle he presents.
i The "red" army Is truly the only real mili
tary menace today, and tt is a very real one.
While the wall erected to preserve western
Europe from bolshevism holds for the present,
and may grow stouter as days pass, it is not at

Best to Buy at Home.
The revelation, that some well-to-do families
in Omaha have been buying groceries and other
goods in the east instead of trading at home
shows that the mail order habit is not peculiar
to tones who live m tne country. it acmon
strates also the pertinacity of the idea that some
where off , there in the distance the fields are
greener, prices cheaper and products better.
Experience teaches time and again that this is
untrue, and that mercantile concerns which feci
no personal connection between them and their
customers do not give the service and satisfac
tion that comes from trading at home.'
A community rises or falls together. If the
residents send . their, money abroad for goods,
that money disappears from local circulation.
Business houses that pay taxes to the upbuild-"
ing of the vicinity, then pay less, and enterprises
that would add to the opportunities at home is
discouraged. ., V '
Wives of bankers, wholesalers, grain dealers
and insurance men' are singled out for (accusa
tion in . Omaha. , Similar indictments can be
brought against many merv of the prosperous
classes. Men of high position m the business
world are sometimes found who boast of buying
their clothes in New York Salesmen of com
panies that pay no tajtes here and that con
tribute nothing to the support or advancement
of the city bring their sample trunks to Omaha
and go from office to office displaying their
goods. Lawyers, doctors, real estate men and
bankers who draw their living from the com
munity spend more freely than they ought in
such ways as this.
Even were the prices lower than those of
local dealers, which, they are not, this would
be poor economy; The reason then, is only to
be found in the vague ; feeling that one can do
better by going afar off. ' , :
How Many Trees Has Omaha?
This may scent a trivial question, yet it docs
have some bearing on the present as well as
the future prosperity of the city.' Milwaukee
has but recently completed a tree census, arid
has discovered some interesting facts in connec
tion with the parks and shafted avenues and
lawns of the city. In other important communi
ties similar work Ras been done, and in some
efforts have been made to guide and direct the
planting of trees to the end that ultimate, benefit
other than mere shade or ornamentation may be
derived. When Dr. Miller was a member of the
Omaha Park board, many years ago, he sought
to bring about something of system in the se
lection of trees to be planted in the public parks
and along the boulevards, and he could ask no
happier monument than is presented by Miller
park, where his "forest of hoc handles", has
burgeoned into as pretty a bit of woodland as'
ever delighted the eye. . Similarly, the honey
locusts that border the southwest boulevard are
a tribute to the foresight of the man who had
them planted. Omaha tree-planters have been
partial to the varieties of quickest growth,
beauty and usefulness following in order. . Per
haps a survey of the forest growth in the city
might bring out some suggestions that would
be beneficial to the present and of immense vajue
to the future citizens. . 4',';

In placing his long distance call he says:
"I want to talk to No. 648 at Brownsville." ,
Do you know why he places the call this way
instead of saying, "I want to talk to Mrs. Bill Jones
at Brownsville?" ; ;
Because by indicating that he is willing to talk
to anyone at the telephone called he receives a lower
long distance rate than if he had asked for a
particular person. .
A "Station to Station" call is used when the
person placing the call will talk to anyone who may '
answer at the distant telephone. The rate for a
"Station to Station'.' call Is lower than for a
"Person to Person" call because it costs less to
provide "Station to Station" service.
