Moving to Disarmament.
Another distinct and definite .step was 'taken
in the direction of disarmament when the Borah
resolution was 'adopted by the senate without a
dissenting vote. -4 Under the terms of this amend
ment to the naval appropriation bil, the president
is authorized and requested to invite the gov
ernments of Great Britain and Japan to send
representatives to a conference which shall be
charged with promptly entering into an under-
standing or agreement by which the naval ex
penditure's and building programs of each gov
ernment, the United. States, Great Britain and
Japan, shall be substantially reduced annually
during the next five years, to such an extent
and on such terms as may be agreed upon,
which understanding or agreement is to be re
ported to the respective governments for ap
proval. , 1 ,
The main effect of this will be to open the
approach to that .way all have sought. It is air
evidence of the good faith of the United States
in its professions, and as such will be accepted I
generally.- How it will be received abroad may
be conjectured from the fact that all nations are
weary of war, groaning under the burdens in
llieted as a result of combat, and eager for a
cessation of strife. Certain conditions that may
be considered menacing , will present serious
problems for the Conference, but even these may
be resolved without detriment to the whole.
Only Great Britain and Japan are included in
the invitation, because they arc the only other na
tions capable at the time oi carrying on any ex
tensive naval construction program. Great
Britain at least has shown its disposition,
through the proposal for a naval holiday, made
years ago, and which failed because Germany
could not accept the suggestion. Japan ts surely"
in a Responsive mood, because it is least able to
bear the cost of . extensive armament, and Jet
feels, impelled to maintain large establishments,
that its dignity as a first-class power may not bo
impaired.' ' - - .
'V Aside from the material reasons to be. ad
vanced in favor of the plan, its humanitarian
aspect appeals "with even greater force. As na
tion comfcs to meet nation, "just as man meets
man, and to discuss openly and frankly differ
ences that . may arise, adjusting disputes on a
basis of reason and not of force, - establishing
justice as the foundation for all international re
lations and communications, war will be thrust
farther and farther into the background, and we
reach that' day ,v.
"When the war drums throb no longer, and the
battle' flags are. furled,'
even though we do not then attain to the "Par
liament of the World." The Borah amendment
is an encouraging start.
with the parks for the last thirty-two years, as
superintendent, and who has assisted in making
beauty spots out of what were bare expanses
when he took hold, some evidence of apprecia
tion should be his, not only by right, but that
he may understand through years to come that
his work was understood and that the citizens
do set some value on it. Mr. Adams is only
one of a number of men and women who have
stuck to Omaha's, housekeeping work, and who
are coming to a time when they can no longer
discharge the duties that have rested on them so
.Under the charter we have neither civil serv
ice protection nor retirement provision for these
faithful servants. Omaha ought to be as big in
this matter as the great corporations who take
care of those who put in a lifetime looking after
the work set for them to do. The public is not
ungrateful, but it is very thoughtless sometimes.
Freedom of the Press Restored.
-. In granting- second-class mailing privileges to
a New York radical publication, Postmaster Gen
eral Hays briefly debates the principles involved
in the censorship exercised by the Postoffice de
partment. He expresses views of utmost liberal
ity, practically guaranteeing to any publisher use
of the mails for any matter that is mailable at
all. This is all well enough, but it docs not re
lieve the authorities entirely from the duty of
scrutinizing matter that is sent through the post
office. In the case of the paper that has just
been granted the second-class mailing; privilege,,
a real abuse has been practiced by Mr. Burleson.
He agreed that. the paper was mailable, but com
pelled it to pay the additional postage prescribed
under the third-class rate.' The wrong in this is
too obvious to require debate. If the publication
was entitled to go through the mails at all, it
was certainly entitled to the same treatment as is
accorded other newspapers pr periodicals.
When the postmaster general undertakes to
arbitrarily discriminate in the matter of rate of
postage to be charged, he is inflicting injustice
on the publisher. Mr. Burleson went too far in
his application of the law while in office. Re
pression is not the remedy for radicalism. Un
reason 'can only be successfully met and corn
batted' by reason. Mr. Hays understands this,
and proposes to conduct his department along
such lines. The rest will take care of itself. If
this country is headed for a revolution,' no
amount of suppression of publication will save it.
Happily, no such danger exists, and the best pos
sible antidote for the virus of bolshevism and
anarchy is to bring it out into the sunlight of
Pensions for City Employes.
When a man has given thirty-two years of
faithful service to a private employer, he seldom
is set afloat in his old age. Provision of one
kind or another is made for him, usually these
days in the shape of a retirement pension. The
federal government has at last adopted a form
of retirement pension for its superannuated em
ployes, and gives the faithful and efficient some
assurance that he will not be cast off when worn
cut in the service. Underlying this practice is a
Omaha has some forms of pension for school
teachers, firemen and policemen, and retirement
age comes to the members of these forces with
little or no terror. Other departments of the
city are not so organized, ' and when dismissal
comes, no matter what length of service may be
noted, the departing employe simply steps down
and out, his connection with the city's public
service ended by his dismissal. There should
be a better way than this.
In fce case of V.R. Adams, who has served
Veterans Jealous of Their Country.
Resolutions adopted by the Grand Army of
the Republic at Hastings deserve thoughtful con
sideration by all. Sentiments therein expressed
do not flow from minds that dwell in the past,,
but are the thoughts of patriotic men, who sin
cerely love the land for whose preservation they
fought m their young manhood, and to whose
future greatness they turn their dimming eyes
with reverent devotion.
America owes much to the Grand Army men,
more than ever will be paid, but an installment
on the debt may be discharged by giving respect
ful heed when they speak. It will not do for the
thoughtless to call' them reactionary, because
they do not indorse all the innovations and ex
periments that are being used to test the strength
of the fabric of our institutions. These men
went through the dreadful experience of civil
war, four , years of bloody . strife, to establish
definitely the principle of human liberty under
Old Glory. If they advise the nation to cling
fast to the safe anchorage afforded by the Con
stitution, ind to beware of false lights, it is
because they have a transcendant right to be
jealous of their country's safety.
Some of the things they deprecate in their
resolution arc experimental as yet, and may ulti
mately work out for good. If these things,
among which may be listed the direct primary
and the initiative and referendum, do not finally'
produce the benefit advertised for them, they
will be discarded. A progressive people can not
afford to have its onward march hampered by
the incubus of exploded ideas. Invasion of per
sonal rights can-proceed no farther than the'
majority is willing to permit. Persistent minori
ties may, and do, make headway, penetrating the
social fabric with their limited ideas, but sooner
or later they encounter an impenetrable stratum
of antagonistic public opinion, and there the
Human liberty, purchased by the blood of
many martyrs, is the priceless possession of all
Americans, and is safe in their keeping. The
Grand Army of the Republic is moving to its
physical extinction, but its spirit will never die.
The boys of '61 are handingr on .their sacred
commission to the Boys of J98 and the boys of
'17," and these will see that the light on the altar
is not dimmed.
. So long as American. eyes light up and. Amer
ican hearts beat faster when the flag goes by, so
long will our country be safe. And the splendid
men who so courageously voiced the faith that
is in them, not only at Hastings, but atf the way
from Shiloh to Appomattox, and in the years
that intervene, may answer "taps," assured that
they have left their' work in hands, that will
carry it on and keep the trust as hey have done.
. Between Townley and Langer.
Exhibitions such as that given at Deshlcr
Wednesday afternoon are not calculated to help
the farmer solve his problem. Messrs. Townley
and Langer are both well qualified to discuss on
their merits the questions involved in the issue
raised by -the Nonpartisan League. Instead of
doing this, however, each called the other a liar
and a rascal, and exchanged many other like
comments of a personal nature. Such proceed
ings may amuse, but certainly do not edify. As
sertions should be supported by proof, and made
effective by argument, and the bandying of
epithets docs not constitute the necessary process
for reaching the reason of the farmers. We as
sume that the farmers who are approaching the
Townley program with open minds are relying
on reason to enable them to- reach a conclusion
on the point. If this is so, the performance at
Deshlcr did not help either side. So long ,a3
the contestants devote their efforts to calling
names, their appeal will be to passion only, and
the farmers will find that is a poor guide.

Eight Years of Menocal
Progress Made in Cuba Under
President Honest and Courageous
(From the New York Tiraos.)
After eight years of Menocal in Cuba there
are, to be four years of Zayas, if the former
liberal leader can maintain order and manage
the politicians of the coalition that elected him
president. On May 20, when Dr. Zayas took
the oath of office at the national palace in
Havana, General Menocal sailed away tor a well
earned vacation in Europe. He had been a re
markable Spanish-American president. . He sta
bilized the country, literally made two blades of
grass grow where one was before, raised new
revenue, put admirable laws upon the statute
book, checked, if he did not stamp out, corrup
tion, and gave Cuba a standing it had never en
joyed before. His influence, determined the part
the republic should play in the world war. On
April 7, 1917, he signed the, resolution declar
ing that a state of war existed between Cuba and
the imperial German government. Many Cubans
served overseas. A special hospital corps was
sent to France. Vigilant surveillance defeated
German intrigue. In short, the conduct of gov
ernment and people was exemplary. Mario
Menocal was the inspiration; his was the guid
ing hand. In the rjbellion of 1895-8 against
Spain he had risen from a private in the ranks
to major general, and there could be no doubt
w here he would stand when the United States
entered the conflict for the preservation of liberty
When General Menocal became president of
Cuba in 1913 the failure of his administration was
generally predicted. He owed his election to the
bolt of General Asbert from the liberal party,
which was controlled by Jose Miguel Gomez, an
ambitious and - selfish1 politician, who . was not
troubled with scruples. Soon after the inaugura
tion it became the duty of 'President; Menocal
to see that General Asbert and a senator and
representative were prosecuted for their com
plicity in the murder of General Armando Siva,
chief of the national police. Siva, shot on the
Prado, was the victim of a political feud. Los
ing the support of partisans of General Asbert
in congress, the new president found he had so
slender a majority that all his policies were
blocked. The chambers were often without a
quorum. Constructive' legislation had to be
deferred. Cnaracter and resolution did prevail in
the end, but it was uphill work. A corrupt presi
dent would have found some ways to placate his
opponents, to turn enemies into friends, but the
man' who had been educated at Cornell and who
became a captain of industry in' Cuba through
sheer ability refused to compromise or to- give
. While congress was coming to its senses
President Menocal put 'down-banditry in the
island, and deported troublesome anarchists to
Spain, Mexico and Argentina. He reorganized
the army and extended the school system. He
began many public improvements. Graft he
faced fearlessly. The notorious ports improve
ment concession was canceled. He kept the civil
administration decent and the department of jus
tice clean. The tcafurv balance was increased
from $6,540,766 to $13,905,324.
The sugar estates seemed to be on the side
of Menocal. There were bountiful crops in
1914, 1915 and 1916. He encouraged business of
ever kind and the merchants had faith in him.
So Cuba prospered. In his second term he in
vited General Enoch H. Crowder 'to frame a
much needed new election law. Only the wis-!
dom and resolution of President Menocal had
saved Cuba from intervention early in 1917,
when Ithe Miguelists took to the manigua to
overturn the government. Hit steadiness again
averted intervention when General Gomez chal
lenged the election pf Dr. Zasas last year.
Mario ' Menocal should go down to, history as
Cuba's first progressive and capable president.
He has blazed the way for his, successor, who
takes over the government strengthened and
purified by the application of the same demo
cratic principles that insure the general welfare
in the United States. .
The Least Possible Work
Governor Allen, of Kansas discovers a new
menace in the closed shop. "It has introduced
into this country," he says, "the un-American
principle of putting as little as possible into life
and taking as much as possible out of life."
As to why this should be characterized as an
un-American principle is not clear. To some
persons it may seem oniy an application to.
human effort and energy of the Yankee princi
ple of driving a bargain to get the most possi
ble for the money. It is a game employer and
employe have played at, and if labor has "over
played" it, as. Governor Allen says, it , is only
natural that it should make the most ofj its turn
at bat. But why must the blame be charged
solely against the closed shop? If the factory
operative who works forty-four hours a week
is putting as little into life as possible to get as
much as possible out of it, the Wall Street
banker who closes his desk Thursday night for
a week-end of golf is doing no less. The princi
ple is the same and just as much or as little un
American in either case. .
What is happening is that everybody who can
is doing as little Work as is compatible with get
ting results. ' The public generally is taking life
more easily than its forefathers took it. Whether
the change involves an economic loss is a ques
tion for argument. But at any rate, labor, so
called, is acting no worse than the rest of so
ciety. All arc tarred with the same stick, and
if the indictment holds for one it holds for the
other. New York World.
All Don't Want to Be "Scuttled."
A few days ago Aguinaldo, who understands
and appreciates the. United States and what it has
done for the Philippines, spoke some words of
cold comfort to those of his countrymen who are
shouting for early, ' complete separation from
the United States. The sense of his remarks
was that the Philippine islanders "will be wise
to let well enough alone for the present. More
recently, too, some representatives of the na
tive business and commercial interests have
taken substantially the same position, and have
expressed their confidence in the judgment and
fairness of General Wood and former Governor
Just how significant this is of the basic sen
timent in the archipelago it is of course impossi
ble to say, but these expressions are interesting
because they provide evidence of the existence
of a phase of Filipino sentiment which is not
represented by the insular delegates in Wash
ington, and which goes unrecognised by the ora
tors in the Filipino congress. They indicate
the existence of real public opinion as distinct
from the clamor of professional politicians, and
they give ground for hope that the American
commissioners may be able to get some honest
and -intelligent native help in their work of in
vestigation. Detroit Free Press.

CURING PYLORIC STENOSIS.

Another group says there are two
acts of cases, one termed congenital
pyloric stenosis. In which the stric
ture is present at birth, and another,
Infantile pylorospasm, in which it
comes on ufter birth. The fact that
the first symptom is not. noted un
til the baby is 10 days old in most
cases and not until he Is 4 weeks
old In some eases makes it difficult
to understand how it could be pres
ent ftt birth. In one instance the
condition has been noted In a -months'

During- the first week the child gets

Broup of symptoms. What can be
done about it?
About one-third of the cases are
cured by medical treatment as dis
tinguished from surgery. Some
cases are treated by the use of small
doses of atropin. I know one
mother who has a good healthy 2-ycar-old
now in spite of n pyloric
stenosis which almost ended him at
one month. She attributes her good
fortune to the skillful use of small
doses of tropin. Some cases are
cured, or at least get well, while
stomach washing is being used.
Dr. L. vs . Sauer saw 11 out of 12
cases get well under the use of
thick cereal. The formula used was
skimmed milk, 9 ounces; water, 12
ounces; farina, 8 tablespoonfuls.
dextrlmaltose, 3 tablespoonfuls. Boil
for one hour in " a thick double
boiler. I presume any other com
bination of cereals made into gruel
of about the same thickness would'
More important than the com
bination used was the patience and
care in the using of it. The theory
was that the soft mucilagenous
mass would irritate the stomach
less than milk would. More than
an hour was used In feeding- a few

ona thing certain he would have
chosen a good title if he had left the
first word off. The article Is plain
evidence that Uncle Walt hasn't been
to church since the year of the great
grasshopper raid. We take it that
wheri Sunday morning comes he goes
out on the front porch in his sock-,
feet and sits in a cane-bottom
rocker while he reads the Sunday
paper, and listens to the church bells.
. Mr. Mason (same as Uncle Walt) j
says one of the res?on he doesn't I
go to church is becuse every town j
Of 10.000 inhabitants has about-18
churches. To maka up this number
h certainly must have counted the I
"jumpers" and "the House of David."
As a matter of fact,' we doubt tf
there are ' many towns in Kansas
which have more churches than are
needed to serve properly the various
Another reason he has for not
going to church Is that the sermons
deal only with "things thousands of
years old. when the world Is aching
with today's sickness and weari
ness." Truth, charity and brother
hood are thousands of years old and
the churches of today are applying
those eternal, healing principles to
the problems of the day. If Uncle
Walt will interview the nearest
preacher he will find a man who
knows more about social conditions
in his community and in the world,
more about the relation of industry
to human welfare, more about ef-
"flcient methods of charity and relief
than any other man in the com
The young preacher who applies
for admission into a Methodist con
ference, and we presume that other
churches have . similar standards,
must not only pass a satisfactory
examination on modem affairs, but
must undertake a four-years' course
of study in sociology, political econo
my and moral literature. As a re
sult the church builds the schools.
Practically every Institution of higher
learning Is founded upon the church
except a few state schools which are
comparatively . modern. "In Kan
sas only two of the .19 colleges are
not church institutions." says the
Christian Advocate. The church
founds the hospitals, organizes re
lief. Interposes the principles of
Christ between capital and labor,"es
liblishes orphrtnages and hon.es for
the aged and discusses in its pulpits
modern problems of justice and
Some d:iy we hope that Uncle
Walt will, knock his pipe across the
banister, slip it in his pocket and
mosey along to church and Sunday
A great many people have been
tryirwr recently. Uncle Walt, to make
you think that the preachers wanted
to- suppress everything, require peo
ple to go to church by law and other
wise pull great gobs of gloom down
over the universe. It Is not true,
and it never will be true. The sland
erers of the preachers are busy
simply because the churches of this
nation Joined hands with the busi
ness men of the country in saying
that the saloon had to go. The.
preachers are not trying to pour a
bucket of water on piur pipe orto
pet the "cop" after Vu for not com
ing to pr-jyer meeting. They are
men of education, of wide human
sympathies and we venture the
opinion that if you talk things over
with them you will find that in DO

An indirect cost you should figure
Lubricating oil is one of the smallest items of
cost, when you balance it against fuel or tires.
But its indirect cost may easily be higher
Engine wear-and-tear, frequent overhauling,
repairs and the replacement of broken parts
practically all this expense should be charged
against the cost of lubricating oil.
So lubricating oil of highest quality and proper
body is a big money-saver. It protects engag
ing parts against wear, prevents bearings
burning out, keeps compression tight and as- 1
sures maximum power and mileage from every
gallon of gasoline.
Polarine makes these economies not only
possible but certain. Its stability under high
engine heat insures a fuel-tight and gas-tight
seal in the cylinders, and a film on bearings
and moving parts that prevents wear. c
. Polarine is made in four grades light, medi
um heavy, heavy and extra heavy but only
one quality. Get the proper grade for your
car next time you buy clean-burning Red Crown
