V Helping Farm and City.
". The loan of $50,000,000 of government funds
tofrmers is recommended by Secretary of the
Treasury Mellon. This proposal, coming from
banker whose associations have been, not with
agriculture, but with the steel and oil interests
of ''hit native Pittsburgh, can not be criticised
s Viasei and unfair as it might have been had
it been urged only by the farm organizations.
''If aid ever was needed, it is needed now,"
he" told congress, whereupon a representative
from an eastern district inquired if it would not
be advisable for the government to lend money
to people in cities for the construction of houses.
Mr.' Mellon, city bred though he is, dismissed
this with a negative reply. Evidence may be
found in the question, however, of a feeling
among urban inhabitants that more attention is
being snown the farmer than any other class.
In every city there are many out of work, and
talk of soup houses is heard, but with this sit
uation the government has not attempted to deal.
Secretary Mellon takes the view that if that
half of the population living in rural .communities
can be put on its feet, its demand as consumers,
. together with its output as producers, will revive
business and employment all along the line.
:The operations of the Federal Land bank were
shut off by a suit at a crucial time, and only in
the last few months has it again got under way.
A first issue of $40,000,000 in bonds secured by
real estate mortgages has just been sold. Of
this amount the farmers of the district centering
at Omaha and including Nebraska, Iowa,
Wyoming and South Dakota, have had put at
their disposal only $4,000,000, which, if rationed
out exactly, would mean only $10,000 in loans to
each county in the district. This sum, distinctly
insufficient to meet the needs of the Omaha ter
ritory, yet has been instrumental in improving
the. financial position of many country com
munities. The bill urged by the secretary of the
treasury would more than double the efficiency
of the land bank system, and wuld relieve a
stringency of credit that reaches from the farm
to the city. .In only the narrowest sense is it
class legislation, and one who objects to it as a
subsidy would be capable of cutting off his nose
to spite his face.
The Race Track's Attraction.
j-After all, who wants, a "sure thing?"
' " Thousands of Omaha people have gone to the
Ak-Sar-Ben running races the last week. If
they should tell why, most would say they went
because they liked to see "a good race." In
other words, they like a contest. The thing
which interests is the uncertain. If the favorite
horse won every race, the grandstand would be
empty. What every race fan is watching for is
the "dark horse," the unexpected winner. That
gives the thrill.
lis so in every game. The big crowd never
attends the game which is "a "cinch." What's
the use? It doesn't arouse the sporting instinct,
which is' nothing more or less than the joy of
uncertainty. Some folks like to "know it all,"
but they aren't the people who make up the
bulk of sporting crowds. The sport fans may
talk as though each and everyone knows all about
it, but down in their hearts they don't; that's
why they are there.
. Toward Lasting Peace.
' General Pershing has spoken against the mad
race for armament before this, and his words
to the convention of the Nebraska League of
Women Voters arc not open to the accusation
tnat he was merely telling them what he knew
they would like to hear. His statement that
President Harding has already gone far through
diplomatic channels to interest other nations in
proposals for limiting warlike preparations ought .
to set at rest the nervous .feeling that not all
that might be done is being done.
'"There is no doubt that public opinion is, as
General Pershing says, behind the president in
this " cause. - The fact that disarmament and
pacifism are looming so large in the public mind
nas7 however, encouraged 'a number of politicians
tevseize upon the issue as the one sure route to
continuance in office. The subject of disarma
ment is not one suitable for hysterical or senti
mental handling, nor is it a party issue. Every
real American hopes for the day when the waste
and menace of swollen armaments, will be done
away with. There is no need for propaganda or
excitement, or any pacifistic posing on the part of
statesmen. The national administration, as Gen
eral Pershing states, is going ahead calmly and
surely with arrangements for an international
agreement, and meanwhile, the oest service the
propagandists could do is in discouraging na-
fjttuu hatreds, preventing international exploita
tion, and the maintenance of a calm patriotism in
which jingoism has no part' :'
Chicago's . New Methodist "Cathedral."
"" John and Charles Wesley, did most of their
preaching- out of doors, or in humble "meeting
houses," and they aroused a spirit that never
has been quenched. We doubt, however, if that
pirit will be intensified by the peculiar combi
nation of church and business proposed for a
downtown congregation in Chicago. It owns a
aluable site, and proposes to get the benefit,
from it by Meeting a twenry-three-itory build-Ing-,
to bg jTgtgd to the cmbjnej uses ot busi-
ness offices and a cathedral Old-time Methodism
did not have much use for either, and especially
was it not favorable to cathedrals.. An episode
that occurred at Jerusalem in the very early
years of the present era might be cited, also, as
indicating how the presence in the temple of
money-changers and those who buy and sell may
be regarded even at this day. The proposed
building is all right as a novelty, but it does not
appeal as a religious or business proposition.
Republican Party and the South.
( The reform of the system of representation in
republican national conventions cuts the party
power of five southern states, increases that of
three and leaves that of North Carolina and Ala
bama unchanged. The influence of Nebraska and
other states in which heavy republican majori
ties have been given has been increased by two
votes each. This is a better balance than for
merly existed, and those who remember the
inevitable charges of corruption and jugglery
that met contesting delegations from such states
as Georgia and Louisiana will realize the neces
sity for clearing up this nest of trouble.
If Mississippi, South Carolina or Texas wish
larger representation in the republican national
convention, it is up to party leaders there to
get out the vote, since it is on this basis that
delegates are apportioned. There has been at
times more than a suspicion that some republican
field marshals in the south have not exerted
themselves to the full to elect the candidates of
the party for congress and other offices. The
temptation to remain sole dispenser of patronage
has been great. If there should have been a
republican member of congress from one of these
states, from his position in Washington he might
have had better access to the ear of the man'
naming postmasters and other officials than the
party leader at home.
In every respect the readjustment of seats in
the party councils is a good one, doing justice
to the states in which the party is strongest and
doing no wrong to those in which it has been
The Veterans' School at Bellevue!
Leasing of Bellevue college by the federal
government as a rehabilitation school is part
of a general scheme for aiding wounded ex-
soldiers of the great war. Much of this, work
should have been done .rtionths ago; govern
mental red tape has proved a sore disappoint
ment to many men who lost the full vigor of
their physique in battle or in camp. But on the
other hand the crfanged economic conditions un
doubtedly have made many willing to begin the
slow process of re-education who would have
scoffed at the opportunity a year or two ago,
when jobs were easy and pay good.
In the long run, some of these young men
may feel thankful that they were jarred out of
"easy money." Many of them found jobs which
they could do, in their crippled or semi-crippled
state, but which led nowhere. They might have
continued dn such routine work for life. Hard
times came, They lost the jobs. Now they are
willing to learn a trade or a business in which
advancement may be steady and continuous
through the years they devote to it.
Many wounded men looked to the future from
the start. For them, the government has moved
too slow. The thing all hope for is that the
preparations finally made will be adequate'for
all and will give all premanent benefit
Care in Freeing Convicts.
At periodical . intervals recently Nebraska
newspaper hove published lists of state peni
tentiary inmates who have applied for pardon,
parole or commutation of sentence, generally
outlining in each case briefly the crime for
which each was sentenced, the time served and
the particular reason urged for release. Natur
ally there are two reactions upon the minds of
newspaper readers. Some imagine that most of
Nebraska's prison population is seeking freedom;
others lament that men who may have reformed
should undergo such humiliation in their prog
ress toward reward. V.
The fact is that new legislation forbids con
tinuance of former practices whereby men were
released without publicity. There is no more
clemency than before and probably no mpre re
quests for it. .The activity is apparent simply
because the public knows now about what is
going on. It may be humiliating to reformed
criminals that their misdeeds should be pub
lished to the world once more, after years of
salving silence. But after all that is merely a
part of their punishment, less severe than con
tinued imprisonment. :
The fact is that for various reasons, many
people some of criminal tendencies as well as
men who believed in upholding the law had
come to feel that penal servitude in Nebraska
did not mean what the dictionary indicates, that
the sentence of the judge, instead of ending the
case, was but the-beginning of a new campaign
for relief from punishment, conducted this time
in private rather than in public. That feeling
is pretty well disabused. The new constitution,
the legislature and the state pardon board have
made that certain.
With publicity assured the public has itself
to blame if its servants exercise the pardon
power more freely than it would have them use
it. Publicity sometimes hurts individuals; ' it
rarely harms that union of individuals known as
the public. The five murderers who now ask
freedom may be entitled to it. Present public
hearing of such cases means, however, that their
release will be considered carefully and in the
light of its .effect on public respect for the law
and the officers ,who administer it. . ,
The railroad companies' offer to' transport re
lief supplies to Pueblo without charge has been
matched by the contribution of $2,000 for the
flood sufferers by the Union Pacific Family
league, and thus is brought to public attention
that a common spirit of human kindness exists,
high and low, in an industry that just now is
facing a lot of criticism.
Newberry's brother-in-law, who claims to be
too weak to stand examination in the senate in
quiry, will have the benefit of medical advice
from two heart specialists employed by the gov
ernment, but it is to be feared that nothing less
than a dismissal of the charges will ever restore
him to full health.
Amateur or professional, the crime that ended
in the death of Mrs. Hyland is a direct challenge
to the police, who should not rest till the mur
derer is on his way to proper punishment

Worry About the Worlm
Public Morality Ha Broken Down
According to Prophets of Gloom
(From E. W. Howe's Monthly.)
Sixteen of the most eminent men in England
have signed and widely distributed a remarkable
document. "No lover of mankind or of prog
ress," it reads, "no student of morals, of
economics, can regard the present trend of af
fairs without feelings of great anxiety. Civiliza
tion itself seems to be on the wane, and every
thing that makes life really worth living in proc
ess of extinction. Never was greater need of all
those qualities which make the race human, and
never did they appear to be less manifest. It is
becoming increasingly evident that the world has
taken a wrong turn, which, if persisted in, may
lead to the destruction of civilization. Right
thinking men and women of all classes are filled
with anxiety, not only because of existing con
ditions, but on account of the still more distress
ing situation likely to develop in the early future
a situation which they feel so powerless to pre
vent. A renewed sense of right is needed. In
these circumstances we appeal to the right think
ing of all nations and classses, and invite their
co-operation in the work of applying the true
Elsewhere in the document it is stated that
"private morality" has broken down. This isn't
true; it is public morality that has broken down;
and public morality has broken down not be
cause the people are less worthy and cautious
than they have been, but because propagandists
soldiers, preachers, politicians, secretaries of
commercial clubs, editors and literary men gen
erallyhave gone crazy. For nany years irre
sponsible boomers have engaged in booming,
their conventions. The war has given them op
portunity to put their doctrine into effect. That
is the trouble: the real people are as worthy, as
conservative, as moral as they ever were: Ameri
icans demonstrated that they were at the last
national election.
The enormous majority for Mr. Harding im
presses me as a very creditable performance; it
indicated so profundly that the people are all
right. It happened that every foe we have rea
son to fear combined in supporting Mr. Wil
son's policy, and the unanimity with which , the
voters condemned it will always remain an im
pressive performance to me:, I know no other
thing in American history equally creditable. It
is the best evidence I know that the people are
all right. I do not say this because I am a
republican, or Mr, Cox a democrat. It happened
that Mr. Cox's party represented the booming,
the sentimentality, the extravagance, which had
become dangerous, and that the republican can
didate represented conservatism- and old-fashioned
common sense. Mr. Cox in effect lost
almost every creditable community; in this state
ment I do not include the southern states, which
have a race problem, and an old. tradition of
being humiliated by the republicans.
Outside of these every state lined up for con
servatism, old-fashioned common sense and right.
The verdict was more than a verdict against the
League of Nations; it was a slap in the face for
every dangerous disturber, whether the mis
chievous disposition came from whisky, big talk,
big writing, idleness, propaganda, war or ex
travagance. It is true. Mr. Harding and His as
sociates are not acting in full measure, on the in-,
structions given them plainly and almost unani-"
mously, but it was a referendum, and the answer
was extremely creditable.
I am'not alone in the opinion that "everything
that makes life really worth living is in process
oi extinction; sixteen ot the most prominent
men of England think so, and have said so in a
public statement. And if this lamentable state
of affairs comes about in the United States, it
will be in plain defiance of a very decided pop
ular opinion. The old principles of right are
still strong. If we wreck the country with false
notions; with extravagance, idealism, senti
mentahsm, propaganda, it will be because the
people do not assert the common sense they be-,
heve in. The. boomers have made liberty more
dangerous than a full measure of it can possibly
help us: we have engaged in extravagance-more
cpstly than dishonesty; we have ruined the value
of honest money with fiat money; we have over
loaded Christianity, progress, democracy, pa
triotism, sentiment, education; and all these,
worthy though they be within reason, have com
bined to curse us.
Golf Can't Be Explained
The most difficult thing to acquire in golf is
co-ordination of mind, muscle and club. One day
a player may be complete master with the wood
and a dub. with the irons, while on another the
situation is reversed. On still another occasion
he will sink his putts with machine-like accuracy,
only to; be off with irons or wood.
Each player has his favorite club, and it is
one of the perplexing things about the ancient
and honorable game that the day is sure to come
when this jct club proves to be the worst stick
in the bagl Instances of fine scores made with
borrowed clubs are many, but there have been
few cases comparable with the experience of
Hunter, the new English amateur champion, who
got distance and accuracy and won a champion
ship with the aid of a brassie from the tee, his
driver having been broken early in the competi
tion. Yet this is only one illustration of the
idiosyncrasies of this fine game, which presents
new aspects constantly.
Some of the best golfers when they , find
themselves ynlucky with a particular club, put it
aside for a time. A renewal of associations finds
it with its old qualities apparently restored. It
is difficult to explain this. It is a part of the
peculiar psychology of the game, which holds its
fascination as long as a player has power to
tramp over the greensward and make the little
sphere of gutta percha ride the air as though it
had wings and was vibrant with life. New York
Overestimating Estates
Seldom, does the estate left by a man equal
that which he was believed to have. It is a
habit to magnify a man's wealth. Sometimes he
may,-encourage people to think he has greater
riches than he has, but if a man li-es well, ap
pears prosperous and meets his debts on time,
the world will be pretty apt to set him down first
as 'well-to-do," and from that bv easy stages
he gets the repute of being "rich," then "im
mensely rich," and perhaps then "a millionaire,"
and if he lives as a millionaire is thought to live
he is apt to be spoken of as one who is "many
times a millionaire." It seems prettv easy for a
man who accumulates $,50,000 or $100,000 to be
popularly classed as a millionaire.
It is true that many large and moderate es
tates had suffered great actual shrinkage in the
past two years because of the depreciation in se
curities. But we have all observed that a pros
perous, man is generally far richer while he lives
than when the estate is measured by his ex
ecutors or administrators. In the matter of the
yast estate left by Henry C. Frick one of his
executors has given its face market value, real
and personal, wherever situated, as $92,883,706.
His wealth was once listed at $143,000,000, and
was believed to be much greater. However, even
in its shunken state, it is an immense estate and
the bequests to charities or to agencies for the
help of humanity needing help are magnificent

question. If a republican is appointed the

Relation of Relativity to the World.
Omaha, June 8. To the Editor of
The Bee: After a careful and, I be
lieve, an impartial investigation, I
am still an agnostic on the Einstein
theory of relativity, the new theory
of the universe formulated and an
nounced by Prof. Albert Einstein. I
believe the theory has aome strong
and also many weak, points In it
But whatever we may think of It. we
must admit that this unique theory,
even with all its complications and
apparent paradoxes is greatly stir
ring many of the thoughtful people
of every land. A Urge per cent of
the scientists do, however, not yet
believe in it.
The vital questions concerning it
are: (1) Is it true, (2) can it be
learned by ordinary effort, and (S)
can we make practical use of It In
our daily life?
To the first, we may answer that
the advocates of the Einstein theory
claim that it has been confirmed by
three independent tests, as I have
explained by the illustrations. By
the slow shifting of the oval orbit of
the planet Mercury. By the deflec
tion of the light rays during the total
eclipse of the sun of May 29, 1919.
And by the shifting of spectral lines
toward the red end of the spectrum.
But all these tests are of such an
extremely delicate nature that the
operators may be mistaken in their
calculations and minute Measure
ments. Tractically all its other
principles and claims are still un
verified. Is it sufficiently simple so that it
can generally be learned with ordi
nary efforts? This seems doubtful
to me. Some time ago Einstein said
himself that perhaps not more than
a dozen persons in the world under
stood his theory. That is, indeed, a
very weak point.
The following are some of Ein
stein's claims. He says parallel lines
may meet. No action can exceed
the velocity of light. No absolute
time and space. Yardsticks may
vary according to how we hold them.
The weight of a body may depend
on its velocity. A straight line may
not be the shortest distance between
two points, etc. Can they be learned?
Finally, is the Einstein theory
practical? Can we apply it to our
daily life? Einstein in one of his
articles says:
""The new theory of gravitation
diverges widely from that of New
ton with respect to its basal princi
ple. But in practical application the
two agree so closely that it has been
difficult to find cases in which the
actual differences could be subjected
to observation."
Perhaps practically ail knowledge
and experience is worth knowing,
but only the nractical nart is worth
learning. Differential calculus may
all be true, and can with much time
and effort be mastered by most any
one. But for the average man and
woman is it worth the price of learn
ing it? So it seems to me it is with
the Einstein theory of relativity.
I am, however, willing to concede
that I have already derived certain
intellectual benefits from the study
or tne Einstein theory. I may eay
mat ror tne last 40 years I have been
a keen and open-minded student of
nature, and this Einstein investiga
tion has made me even more so, so
that I can truthfully say that on ths
parucuiar point nas tne Einstem
theory already benefited me in a
practical as well as in a theoretical
way. - I am now living in a slightly
different and also a slightly better
mental world than I was before I
investigated Einstein's theory of
relativity, and perhaps every other
siuaent can eay the same.
But would we not receive even
much greater benefits from the same
amount of study along the lines o
tne more practical problems of daily
life? How to cope best with the
struggle , for existence; how to
eliminate war, poverty, famine, dis
ease, superstition, unemployment,
profiteering, etc.
So it may not be possible, as some
believe, that the Einstein theory
when fully developed and understood
will harmoniously combine gravita
tion, electricity, light, heat, energy,
electro-magnetism, etc., into one
grand, unified system of nature, with
a promise of incalculable benefits to
humanity? Who can tell?

When yearly announcement ; Is
made of the winners in the city con
tests for the lowest baby death rates
it is found Minneapolis always holds
an enviable place. Some attribute
this to the large Scandinavian popu
lation; some to the cool summers,
and some to the work done in baby
care. The likelihood is that ' all
three factors contribute. One of the
things they do unusually well is to
keep the mothers breast feeding.
This is their method. An infant
welfare society, co-operating with
the health department, the universi
ty and the Public Health association,
sees that every mother hears some
thing about the advantages of breast
feeding. As soon as a birth is re
corded at the health department the
name and address of the mother is
sent to the society. The society
sends out the following letter:
"Dear Madam Summer will soon
be here. It is especially important
now for your baby to be kept upon
the breast. There is mueh more
danger for the bottle fed baby when
the weather is hot. We wish to
make sure that you have no diffi

be prevented. We are therefore
taking the liberty of sending you an

following questions and return it to

"Is your baby still breast-fed?
"How often do you feed it?
"Are you having any difficulty

that there is difficulty in nursing the

Dr. J. P. Sedgewick, who is an
enthusiast on the subject of saving
babies by persuading mothers to
breast feed, says that 90 to 95 per
cent of mothers could breast feed If
we could apply the information and
knowledge we already have. Free
dom from worry, regular hours of
sleep, plenty of sleep are important
factors in promoting a good supply
of milk. .
Some women have too little milk
because they eat too little, but more
because they eat too much. Regu
lar hours for nursing and proper
emptying of the breasts are impor
tant factors. ' ,
It may be advisable to express the
milk and feed it to the baby with a
tube or from a bottle or spoon. This
is advisable if the baby Is premature
or weak or the nipples are sore or
are inverted. There is an art in re
moving the milk from the breast.
If properly done the production is
stimulated and the quantity in
creases. The milk gland should
never be pressed. The' fingers should
grasp the outer edge of the brown
area and the pressure beginning
there should pull on the nipple ex
actly as the milk maids pull on the
teat of a cow. This physiologic
method is effective, does not hurt,
and causes an Increase in the pro
duction of - milk.
In Minneapolis 96 per cent of the
mothers registered were breast
feeding when their bsbles were 3
months old. When the babies were
9 months old the percentage was 7a,

An indirect cost you should figure
HiatunamraraTKiusu ,
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
than either. '
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
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.
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
Gasoline and you will start cutting down
motoring costs.
