Harding's Foreign Policy.
While Mr. Harding has not been precipitate
in disclosing the details of his foreign policy,
such as he has made public appear sound and rea
sonable. His attitude towards Europe, evinced
while a, senator, has gradually developed into a
settled gonvtction, it would seem, and he has in
mind to keep America free from the internal
troubles of the Old World. However, this docs
not inclyjie any purpose to abandon obligations as
sumed through our participation in the late war.
The United States entered the war with a definite
object in view, and until that object is made se
cure our president will not be satisfied. ,., . ,
Germany must not only admit guilt but must
make reparations. Until this is done, and only limi
ted by Germany's ability to pay, the big issue in
volved in the conflict will not be settled. The
United States holds Germany responsible for the
war, and will not render futile the expenditure of
blood and treasure made by our. people through
taking part in any move to exculpate the offen
ders. While the Treaty of Versailles will not,
again be submitted to the senate for ratification,
cither with or without the covenant, the attitude
of our presfdent holds no consolation for those
who had" hoped to drive a wedge between the
United States and the Entente Allies.
Selection of Colonel George Harvey to be am
bassador to the Court of St. James, the most im
portant foreign station under our government,
had been discounted and has been extensively dis-
cussed. It means, if anything, firm adherence to
the best traditions of Americanism. Col. Harvey
is a democrat, and was originally responsible for
Woodrow Wilson, having been chiefly instru
mcntatm securing his election to the office of
governor of New Jersey and then paving the way
for his, domination at Baltimore. Wilson broke
with Harvey, just as he has with all others who
have been of great service to him and yet who
would persist in doing apportion of their own
thinking.' flie rupture was hailed as a fine piece
of poliuisal finesse at the time, as it marked the
line bei reen the conservatism of Harvey and
the radicalism of Wilson. Harvey's attitude on
' the League of Nations is quite, in harmony with
that of.the president, and his appointment may
be fairer interpreted as notice to the world that
so far a the United States is concerned the cov
enant fiamcd in Paris is dead.
Satisfaction ought to follow these disclosures
" of the Harding policy. While they do not come
with" any element of surprise, they do have the
merit of being sincerely put forth without any
ttteniot at preparatory exploration of the public
mind. Above all, they are in line with pledges
' made while the campaign was on. and so indicate
. determined fidelity by the president to a well
reasoned American policy.
Self-Determination for Hungary.
The;coup d'etat attempted by Charles, latest
and perhaps last of the Hapsburg emperors, ap
pears to have failed. It was bungled fronvthe
" very start. A peculiar ineptness seems to have
marked the plot, wherever it was conceived, and
Its failure is not a source of wonder, now that
some of the details are
by the desire and fatuously supported by the
thought, Charles left Geneva on what he im
gined would be a triumphal march to a throne
at Budapest. He returns disillusioned. Not only,
were the eager throngs, waiting to acclaim .tarn
king, missing, but a stern and capable regent
flatly informed him he could not achieve his aim
WoL than this for his future, he has brought
om the Allies an expression that is . ominous

"Cabbages and Kings" in Spain.
A few years ago the Infanta Eulalia wrote en
tertainingly for the edification of her American
.friends, under the caption of "Cabbages and
Kings," and gave us some interesting informa
tion regarding the private life of European mon-
archer and dignitaries in general. She might
add a chapter now, with her nephew as the topic,
.T and 1i actual doings more nearly related to the
title thn she could have hoped. For Alphonso
has turned to gardening, and daily the royal
hands lay down the scepter for a short time and
dally with the hoe. How long he will keep it up
we wouldn't like to guess, but he is learning some
things that are good for a king to know. A
' pathetic touch in connection with the arrest of
Alexander of Russia was his expressed wish to be
allowed to retire to his country home, there to
spend his time with his roses. His fierce captcjrs
ordained another fate for him, but the thought is
poignant with the wistful yearning of a weary
man whose burden had become too heavy for
him, and who was sore beset and knew not whom
to trust. Other tnonarchs have found surcease
from the cares of state by meeting nature in the
garden, where the mystery of life challenges al
ways the imagination and affords inspiration to
the thoughtful. Alphonso is doing well to dig
in the ground, to produce garden truck and send
it to the poor. He will be the better ruler the
more intimatey he views the wonder of growing
things. Lewis was not so far off the track when
he wrote "cabbages and kings," although he might
have intended to thus adjoin the antipodes.
Omaha's Electric Light Rates.
The announced schedule of electric light rates,
proposed by the-city council and now pending
final adoption by that body, has met most fav
orable reception from the home consumers. The
rate for the small user contemplates a substan
tial reduction in price, more than had been
hoped for, and the more acceptable because it
comes as a sequel to a long and earnest effort
on part of the company to secure permission to
increase the rate.
This reduction does not extend to the whole
sale users of current. To them the new schedule
slightly increases the charge. Naturally, these
object, but the choice is easy between 40,000
homes and some 250 big institutions. Hereto
fore the rule has been applied the other way
round, not always with justice, and generally
accompanied by much grumbling.
Along with the new rate schedule the council
has also under consideration a proposal to sub
mit a bond issue to provide funds for setting up
a small municipal lighting plant to compete with
the existing service. The need for this is not so
urgent as it might have been were the company
not disposed to accept the terms of the city. For
this reason it appears wise to allow the bond
issue to stand over; nothing will be lost to the
public by putting it on file, from whence it may
be taken at any time, nor is the right of initiative
on part of the voters affected in any way by such
If a substantial decrease in the lighting bills
paid by the homes of Omaha may be achieved,
and no right of the city jeopardized, we think it
vould serve the public better to take the lower
rates in sight. The municipal plant can well be
held in abeyance for a time.
Making Children Welcome.
No one now believes that two can live as
cheaply as one, nor can a family of four or five
or six live as cheaply as two. Disillusionment
no doubt has something to do with the fall in
the birth rate. Three men work at the same
job, for the same pay. One is footloose and free,
another has a wife, and the third has not only
a wife but a brood of children. Each man draws
the same pay, for industry is not yet run on the
plan of each according to his needs.
This penalty on parenthood is lightened in
the textile regions of northern France through
an association of manufacturers that is paying
three -francs extra a day for each child in a
worker's family under 13 years of age. In ad
dition to this, 200 francs is paid to the head of
a family on the birth of a child.
The birth rate of France has been declining
for a century. According to the magazine, "La
France," which tells of the new plan to make
children welcome, from 937.345 births in 1881 the
volume decreased to 328,466 in 1915. During the
war period the death rate far exceeded the birth
rate. In 1917 there were 613,148 deaths, exclu
sive of those in battle, and only a little more than
half as many births, 343,318. It is estimated that
births last year exceeded deaths by about 140,000,
but even this' improvement is small, and the ex
periment of higher pay for parents than for thu
unmarried or childless will be watched with in
terest and hope.
Brains on the Farm.
Sixty-seven boys and girls will be graduated
from the school of agriculture of the University
of Nebraska April 15, a reminder that farming
has become a science demanding a high type of
training. Some young people master their vo
cation as their parents did, in practical experi
ence on the farm, but at least a short course in
some, agricultural school is quite a usual method
of preparation for what is rapidly becoming a
Almost any city man feels capable of advis
ing the farmer, but no great rush from the cities
to the land is in evidence. Nor are such ama
teurs ' wanted there. The best brains of the
country are needed on the farms and the stream
of young men' and women trained in the agri
cultural colleges affords hope of the ultimate
solution of one of the greatest national prob
lems. It is not altogether a question of produc
tion, although these costs may be able to be
reduced, but the problem of marketing especially
demands trained men to design economies in dis
tribution from producer to consumer.
Political candidates may look the very best
on their campaign cards, and strew them over
the whole city, but the only pictures 'hat will
get a second glance arc those' of the -.vomen

for them, all are interested to sei what a femi

Pay for Teachers Too Low
Endowed Colleges Menaced Because
U nable to Raise Salaries .
New York. April 3. The General Education
Board has just published a study entitled,
"Teachers' Salaries in Certain Endowed Colleges
and Universities of the United States," by Trev
or Arnett, for several years auditor of the Uni
versity of Chicago, now a secretary of the Gen
eral Education Board.
This studv was undertaken to provide a basis
for the distribution of a $50,000,000 gift made by
Mr. Rockefeller in December, 1919, with the sug
gestion that, as far as practicable, it be used for
the purpose of stimulating and assisting colleges
and universities in raising additional endowment
for the increase of teachers' salaries.
. Up to the present time, $24,250,000 has been al
located to 184 institutions, which have undertaken
to raise a further sum of $55,035,000, making a
total of $79,285,000. For immediate relief, an
nual grants have been made aggregating $4,304,'
451. In order to disbuse the fund most effectively,
detailed information was sought as to college
salaries prior to the war, increases made since the
war, the relation borne by such increases of sal
ary to the increased cost of living and the plans
under way for financing further salary increases
in the near future.
Mr. Amett's study contains information con
cerning colleges of arts, science and literature,
arranged under three groups, men's and co
educational institutions, women's college's and
colleges for negroes. State universities, and one
or two large endowed institutions are not included.
Salaries paid in 1914-15 to 8,540 teachers,
ranging from instructors to full professors, in
259 institutions in all parts of the country, are
compared with salaries paid in 1919-20. Of this
number, 4.559 or 53.4 per cent, were paid in 1919
20 from $901 to $2,100 per year; 3,293 received
salaries above $2,100, but of these only 516 re
ceived more than $4,200 a year. Only 92 received
over $6,000.
These salaries include an increase of about 25
per cent between 1914 and 1919. . Meanwhile, ac
cording to the United States Commissioner of
Labor, the cost of living had increased' not less
than 80 to 90 per cent. Sixty-one per cent of the
teachers reporting were married.
To meet their increased necessities, colleges
have utilized three methods: first, the raising of
tuition and other fees; second, the procuring of
additional endowment; third, the acceptance 'of
annual gifts by which they may be tided over an
immediate crisis.
Prior to 1920: fees had been raised an average
of about 25 per cent. Further increases are being
put into effect and are contemplated, but many
institutions hesitate to increase tuition fees lest
they make it impossible tor students of limited
means to attend college at all.
Emergency gifts have been widely sought, and,
in general, trustees, alumni, and the public have
responded generously. But gifts of this nature
are inadequate in financing permanent salary in
creases. . The main requirement of endowed
institutions is increased endowment and Mr.
Rockefeller's fund is being used to stimulate
such endowment, primarily devoted to the rais
ing of salaries.
Mr. Arnett's study develops the relation be
tween teachers' salaries and other expenditures.
Such salaries form on the average only 47 per
cent of the total expenditures of the institutions
reporting. Since 1914-1915 expenses of maintain
ing and operating physical plants have increased
74 per cent, while salaries increased only 42.6
per ceryt. This shows a tendency on the part
of American institutions to put relatively larger
Sums into maintenance and upkeep as compared
with the sums devoted to teachers' salaries.
Mr. Arnett concludes:
The data above given show clearly that our
higher institutions of learning, which are
supported by endowment, are seriously mcn
aced through lack of funds to pay adequate
salaries to teachers. Business economies may
be effected by the introduction of more ef
ficient methods of conducting strictly busi
ness operations, yet there is grave dangej
that large numbers of able men may be driv
en from academic life and that young men
and women of ability may be deterred from
entering academic careers. It is incumbent
upon those who believe in the importance of
endowed colleges and universities as factors
in our educational development to co-operate
promptly and generously in assuring their

Dangerous Moral Degeneracy.
The man who now thwarts the law of his coun
try by buying whisky knows that it has been ob
tained either under false pretences or that it has
been stolen; there is no other way of obtaining
it except through the bribery of public officials.
He is deliberately encouraging the breaking of
many more laws than the Volstead law: he is
indirectly responsible for such murders as that
good citizen who is horrified when some half
idiotic creature preaches the overthrow of the
constitution. The constitution can survive the
verbal attacks of the demented. It cannot sur
vive the moral degeneration of our own citizens,
which is what open defiance of the laws made
under it would mean eventually. From the New
York Mail.'
Cowboys of 1921.
The 1921 cowboy, like the trapper, has al
most vanished from the western picturg. He
lives now chiefly in Hollywood, Ca!., or in barn
storming troupes touring the country. He is
no longer concerned with, cattle, except as the
atrical props; he is an actor, not a stockman. Ex
cept in a very few places he is gone from the
range, and in these scattered spots where he
still persists it is in reduced glory as a greatly
modified type. He is likely to be as familiar
with flivvers as with horses: he is as handy with
the innnkey wrench as with the branding iron,
and as for six-shooters, he is more likely to
carry a kodak. Chicago Journal.

Americanism. ,
The essence of Americanism is equality before

In the year 1891 the average
height of the women students was
62.4 Inches. There may have been
error in the measurements of this
crowd, because the average height of
the group in 1892 was 63.3 and the
average for the 10-year period was
b3.Z. In the next decade, 1901 to
1910, the average height was 63.5.
In the last decade, 1911 to 1920, the
average was 63.8. The tallest group

By grouping the women by de

large enough to overcome the effects
on the averages of unusual indivi

it proves that the women attending
Leland Stanford now average two-

fair to infer that the average wo

Harding and Labor
(From tho Philadelphia Public
Labor must be willing to live up
to its name, ia the opinion of Pres
ident Harding-. In brief, as he sees
it, labor must labor. This view was
expressed to a labor union president
in a recent interview at the White
House. That labor must take .on a
big share of the whole job of gen
eral reconstruction in industry seems
to be the position of the chief ex
ecutive. That position is very gen
erally shared. Tho president has
voiced the popular belief.
There is an impression that labor
is not doing its full part. This goes
back to prearmistlce days, when
labor was reported. as slowing up in
spots. These reports grew damning
in their details after the armistice
and became more marked through
1919 and into 1920. Industrial
plants all over the country claimed
that labor was "lying down on the
Job." The matter became a sort of
a national scandal. The claim was
borne out when the slump came last
summer with its reduction of work
ing forces. Smaller forces that were
retained began turning out a better
percentage of work per man, in nu
merous instances. Labor was begin
ning to get over its "nervous pros
perity. It is still convalescing.
- It was brought out in this same
Interview that the president has
found empolyers have 110 particular
desire to cut wages. v hat they do
want Is a chance to give 100 per
cent pay for 100 per cent work. If
his Information is correct and labor
Is willing to meet the employer half
way, to stand for production and for
the delivery or a run day s worK
for a full day's pay and for the re
duction of Wages in certain clearly
over-paid trades, why, then, look for
troubles? And labor will find it
hard to take any other position and
keep it long.
Maybe the time of returning san
ity is at hand on the part of both
employer and employe; that "nor
malcy" that President Harding and
the nation hopes for.

Let's go. Onward Omaha, and not be
so far behind our sister city, Denver.
I'm in favor of naming Jack Atkin
son chief of the Omaha air police on
his own terms and then we'll ho nro.

takes place. Jack'll hop off and in a

Omaha, April 2. To the Editor of
The Hee: How come? The papers
are filled nowadays with widespread
reports of the falling cost of living.
Likewise Omaha papers and the
Chamber of Commerce are crying
"Onward Omaha." Walk down the
streets of Omaha and glance at the
signs brazenly displayed in the win
dows of tho restaurants, "We take
pleasure in announcing a 20 per
cent reduction In all our prices,"
"Prices here now are 011 a prewar
basis." and other as false state
ments. Now Mr. Editor, how come that
eggs are selling at the Omaha. Chi
cago and Kansas City markets for
20 and 21 cents a dozen, and at all
of these "prewar basis hold up
joints" in Omaha, two eggs, any
style, still cost you all the way from
25 cents to 35 cents an order? Egg
sandwiches likewise, consisting of
one cold storage egg and two slices
of bread, cut with a raior blade still
attract the "peak price of the war
time period" of 15 cents. Ham and
eggs likowisc have not taken tho
toboggan despite the reductions in
market value. These are but. In
stances, isolated, of the tremendous
cuts made by the benevolent restau
rant men of Omaha.

of The Ree: I see all the time where

their "scoops" and I have also been
told that Washington, D. C is the

seems to mind the exorbitant prices
charged for admission to the thea

all of thd main playhouses for mov

I wonder if it is going to be neces

A Word for Fori!.
Omaha. March 31. To the Editor
of The Ree: Having Just read Ben
nle Flnklestoin's letters regarding
Bergdoll and his question why others
should not be prosecuted, particular
ly Henry Ford, wish to say that
others besides could also be added.
The American is a fair and good
natured being: he loves fair play. It
it not persecution but Justice that he
desires should be done. If an average
could be struck of how loyal and
patriotic any certain class of people
were during the war, I am sure some
self-praising people would not stand
so high. It came to my particular
attention a case in Indianapolis of a
man named Black who had as bad.
or worse record than Ford. Many
soldiers that happened to be In New
York city tell of a "slacker's para
dise," which had a majority ot a cer
tain class of people. Do not attack
the man but attack what he says.
You know truth cannot be denied,
suppressed, or done away with. If
Henry Ford is wrong, show us; we
are from Missouri.

Your editorial in the Monday morn

lines of the editorial which caused
my old heart to Jump and sing was
this: "The pursuit of this peculiar
fugitive should be relentless and his
punishment certain, if for no other
reason than to keep faith with the
more than 4,000,000 other young
men of the land who subjected
themselves to the operations

I volunteered. But I hold nothing
against the many who waited for the
call in the form of the draft and did
their service. For it had to be so
and all wero not footloose like I
was in those days. But I want to
see Uncle Same reach over there in
Germany and seize that young pup,
Bergdoll, by the collar and Jerk him
right back here to Leavenworth
where he belongs. And I am sure
there are millions of my buddies
who trudged their weary way over
that high hill at Montfaucon that
hold the same idea on this case as
I. Wield your pen, Mr. Editor, for

Not The Morning or The Evening Bee
- - But Both
DO YOU remember when you used to read the same news in The Evening Bee
that you had read at the breakfast table in The Morning Bee? Or maybe it wai
the other way around, and you read in The Morning Bee what you had read the day
before in The Evening Bee!
You wont find that in The Dee Morning and Evening TODAY.
The Bee is not a "warmed-over" newspaper nowadays.
The Bee doesn't have that "warmed-over" taste. ' The
news you find in The Evening Bee is distinct and different
from that you read in The Morning Bee and vice versa.
The Policies Are Different
The Morning Bee specializes in state and national news, in market and financial reports,
comment and gossip carried by Associated Press, Chicago Tribune-Omaha Bee
leased wires and special telegraph and cable from every part of the world.
The Evening Bee specializes in local news and in entertaining features.'"
The best features and the most important news are in both.
But the emphasis is different.
Not only the most important local news is in The Evening Bee, but the humor, wom
en's affairs, human interest of daily happenings in and about Omaha are there.
The Morning Bee carries important local news but places emphasis on the big newi t
from everywhere politics, trade, conventions, agriculture and the like.
The Two Are Not the Same
The difference is so marked that there is enjoyment in reading both.
