Telephone Ratei and Deflation.
Neither state officials or the public should
discount the request of the Northwestern Bell
Telephone company for a continuance of present
telephone rates on the theory that it is merely
maintenance of existing: charges and not an in
crease. Technically that is so; in fact, the issue
is a question of increase.
The 10 per cent surcharge on all telephone
rentals, now at issue, was allowed by the state
railway commission last November. It was
designated an emergency" rate, effective only
until June 30. The purpose of making it tem
porary was two-fold: First, to permit a study
of actual effect upon the company's revenue, and
second, to ascertain whether or not operating
costs would not decline.
The"' company asks now that the .temporary
rate be made permanent and in addition that a
IS per cent increase be made on "person to per
son" long distance calls. This raises the issue
of both the new and the old increases on
their merits, which has not been fully tested out
heretofore. ' ' " '
In support of its plea, the company recites
that its net earnings for the first four' months of
1921 were only $218,775, less than 5 per cent on
its investment.- This is not in itself conclusive.
Many industries ordinarily prosperous are now in
a period of depression, yet all are "carrying on"
as best they may until the day, gradually but
surely approaching, when normal times return.
As The Bee suggested in connection with the
street car fare case, this is a time for searching
inquiry into costs of operation. The days of
''easy money" have passed. That means he
day of easy expenditure as well as easy income,
The motto today is not "How much can we get?"
but "How much do we have to have?"
"Fighting Colonel" F. W. Galbraith is no more.
He was a successful business man, and he de
served that success. When the specter of foreign
aggression cast its menacing shad?w over the
great republic that gave him the opportunities he
so ably improved, he was among the first to ac
cept the challenge.
He was looked upon as a man by the greatest
company of proven men the world hag ever
known. He was chosen as the leader of an
organization whose members stand in powerful
opposition to those things which would weaken
and destroy the institutions of Americanism they
glorified on the field of battle.
We bow our heads in sorrow at the untimely
end of the civilian commander of a body of men
whose deeds placed them among the front ranks
Of staunch and noble, Americans. We mourn the
loss of a great patriot, a high-minded gentleman,
a fearless soldier.
Benefits of Planning Together.
i A promising movement .that is spreading
throughout Nebraska is" that of the community
club, bringing people of all varying interests into
. ...1.1 X-A.4l.AM V.i.n..a
politics animates groupings of this sort, but the
sole aim is the achievement of a new and happier
community existence. The news dispatches tell
of a meeting of the Wymore Community cluh at
which $300 was appropriated to the support of
a base ball team and at which the proposal for a.
spur track connecting the Union Pacific and
Burlington lines was, indorsed. In the first of
these actions is seen the interest in recreation
and sports that is part of the function ot a com
munity organization; in the other is registered
the assumption of the task of analyzing the needs,
present or future, of the town, and of pressing
toward more satisfactory arrangements.
Aurora is another Nebraska town having com
Hiodious community club rooms and an active
organisation, and ttfere are many others. In
many cases families living on farms for miles
about the towns, but who have nevertheless
strong ties to their market place, are joining the
. T .1 J.
community associations, in some, i
jjewara, me oratnortjiai uuu i w.iu. -rA
Public health, welfare, education and all
the most human problems that rise wherever a
town exists, are watched and aided by such
means, ine Ming is IO gainer a kiuui u' v.v-
xens, whose only intention is to further the in
terests of their community. That community
eouiooed with such an instrument may well oe
expected to be in the lead of those others which
continue without any organized pian.
, When Comparisons Are Odious:
In discussing raiload wages, the attorney
for a southern railroad has made the point that
a certain locomotive engineer receives $371 more
year than the governor of Tennessee: a yard
master more than most ministers and high school
principals and a railroad blacksmith more than
high school teachers. One comparison that he
did not make was between his own salary and
those of the public officials, college presidents
and other educators whom -he mentioned. The
governor of Tennessee i paid $4,000 a year;
how many times this amount does the attorney
for the Nashville, Chattanooga & St Louis rail
road receives for his services? And are they
any more important than that of the chief ex
ecutive of the state? .
As far as the public, which is expeeted to
meet the costs of railway operation, is concerned,
jhere is no more sanctity surrounding the stipend
of railway managers and other officials than
there is about the wage of labor. In appealing
for wage reductions there should be no distinc
tion between the railroad employe in a swivel
chair and the one in the cab or caboose. In the
readjustment to lower levels it will not do to ex
amine only the rate of pay of the switchman
or other laboring man without going on up the
line and considering what savings can be made
in the head offices.
Japan's Own Ireland.
The experience of a young woman from
Omaha in Korea reveals something of the pre
carious hold Japan maintains over this alien race
of 20,000,000 people bent on self-determination.
Merely a case of a forgotten passport, and yet
her railway journey to Seoul had to be inter
rupted until the missing paper was secured. The
Japanese authorities, sorely harassed by revolu
tionary movements, were courteous as could be,
yet something of the tension that exists there can
be read in the experience. California papers,
bent on stirring up animosity toward Japan, made
much of this incident, but after all, it is no more
than would happen in most of the countries of
Europe; suspicion and misgiving cover the world.
According to Japanese official statistics, since
the outbreak of 1919 in Korea, 10,592 political
prisoners have been flogged, 631 have met death,
5,156 have t)een imprisoned, and 11,831 are still
awaiting trial. Korean figures 6n the number
killed and executed reach 7,000. The struggle of
this race to obtain the political freedom that has
come to so many subject nationalities since the
world conflict may appear hopeless, but its cour
age is raised by contemplation of the delays and
discouragements finally overcome by the Poles,
the Czechs, the Slovenes and those other of west
ern Europe.
A returned missionary from the Orient de
clares that America must turn its eyes to the far
east, and criticises Japan. Yet that nation is
only doing what has been done throughout his
tory. It has come into conflict, however, with'
a new spirit of independence, a fiercer longing
for self-government, whose power can not be cal
culated, and which, resting on the highest ideals
of humanity, may prove stronger than any mili
tary force.
Competition of a New Kind. .
Word from business men is that a new period
of brisk competition is on the way. Once the
shortage of production, which resulted from war
conditions, is remedied the consumer will resume
full power. Such is the outlook for the future
as sketched by a speaker at the convention of
the National Association of Retail Grocers, and
the same view is being expressed by merchants
in many lines.
"Competition is going to be more active than
for many years past," says L. L. Schmal, an
officer of the grocers' organization. "At present,
and- for many years to come, exists what is
known in trade parlance as the 'buyers' market.'
This simply means that the buyer will be sought
by the man who has something to sell rather,
than a source of supply sought by the purchaser."
All this is te the benefit of humanity as con
sumers, and will make also for greater efficiency
in production and distribution. Successful con
duct of business will be more difficult, but the
prizes will still be attainable. Instead of looking.
to high prices for profits, the attention will be
directed toward gaining by increasing the volume
of business through lower prices. ' While co
operation between men in similar, branches of
trade may be encouraged, it will most probably
take such forms as lowering the costs of produc
tion and handling by elimination of wasteful
practices. The decision of Omaha merchants to
do away with the duplicating delivery systems
and unite in using the parcel post system of the
Postoffice department is a clear indication of
new tendency. Cohipetition as to prices remains,
butxrivalry that heightens instead of lowers costs
fades. The buyers' market may be a cause of
terror to incompetent commercial concerns, but
in the long run it will prove itself the. greatest
good for the greatest number.: '
Not to Be Passed By.
The City Jrfission, which is appealing for
funds with which to carry on its work, occupies
a niche all its own in the charity of Omaha.
Unlike those organizations which supply a par
ticular want of all destitute people of the com
munity, be it the necessity of physical comfort,
nursing care in time of sickness or what, the City
Mission attempts to be a place of refuge for the
people of a certain section, that one of the less
happy and prosperous parts .of the icty. ;
. If. they want food, or fuel, they come to the
mission.' If they want medical care, they come
to the mission. If they need spiritual inspiration
to "carry on" through dark and tiresome days,
they come to the mission. It is their 'sanctuary,
in some respects more their home than the
place where they eat and sleep. The City Mis
sion should not be passed by.
Boston boasts a bath tub for every' 4.4 in
habitants, quite an improvement from conditions
in 1880, when there was one tub to each 40 per
sons, but doubtless there are some who, remem
bering the Romans washed their strength away
in the baths, will still find something to .worry
about here. ' ' -'

The Revolt of Youth
Polite Literature Belongs to An
Older Day, When Facte Were Hid.
Elisabeth Sheplsy Sargeant, in The Bookman.
That there is a sharp line of cleavage be
tween the young and the old since the war, in
England and America at least, is an open se
cret. Books like "Potterism" and "Limbo" in
England, books like "The Narrow House" and
"This Side of Paradise" in America, reveal the
line as almost steely in its hard, clear bright
ness. And I can well imagine the- shock a
Harvard overseer of the fine old type would
receive in the neighborhood of his solar plexus
if he read ' One Man's Initiation, 1917," by a
recent Harvard graduate of great promise,
John Dos Passos. Nothing could be less like
the accepted Harvard view of the feelings of a
heroic young soldier. Yet some of us who saw
the war in. France find that book a true and
indeed a beautiful, portrayal of the actions and
reactions of one type of sophisticated and sensi
tive American. It is the kind of frank yet
subtly shaded human document which French
man have always produced. I count it a great
advance that young America has emerged from
our burst of idealist unanimity not only more
self-conscious but with the determination to
which a love of France may well have con
tributed to face objective facts, whether or not
they are pleasant.
-It is probable that for a time the unpleasant
will be overstressed in American literature, and
the pleasant denied or ignored. This is natural,
necessary perhaps, in the leveling of scales
weighed heavily in the Pollyanna direction. It
was William Archer, I think, who told, after
Howell's death, a story of how he wis once
walking in a back street in Boston with that
genial novelist who expressed a wish that he
might know what was going on behind the
drawn shades of a certain blank-looking house.
Archer grimly propounded certain possibilities
from which his companion recoiled with an ex
clamation of horror and dismay. There you have
suggested the difference between the old Ameri
can realism of Howells and the "genteel tradi
tion," and the new American realism of Evelyn
Scott or Zona Gale. I doubt if either of these
writers wilt ever give birth to as great a book
as "The Rise of Silas Lapham." .But I think
someone as yet unborn may write a far greater
because "Miss Lulu Bett" and "The Narrow
House" came into being.
The final test of the younger generation, the
thing that will eventually prove its cOnrbution
to American life and literature to be a deep or a
meager draft on this great and largely unex
ploited fund, will be its disinterestedness. I pre
fer this term to Mr. Sherman's moral idealism
but I admit that there is some resemblance be
tween the two. If the younger generation have
the failing of the younger generation in England
as represented in "Potterism" the tendency to
work for what it gets out of things (for money,
for success, for popular acclaim) instead of what
it puts into things, then its members will not be
the equals of the best of those who have pre
ceded them even by 10 years or so of Willa
Lather and Sherwood Anderson, for instance.
One may not expect a young person of the
present to say at the end of a busy wfck as her
grandmother did, "What have I done to make
others happy?"; but her "What have I done that
was amusing and exciting?" leads one straight
to Bertrand Russell's definition of the acquisi
tive as distinguished from the creative temper.
The creative art certainly does not consist in
Squeezing into one's glass dozens and dozens of
delicious oranges, though "objectivity" seems
sometimes to point that way. It consists in
turning oneself into the orange, in squeezing one
self, forcing out one's very last drop of juice.
We are learning, in spite of the guardians of
Puritanism, to create for the joy of creating,
and to cultivate our native roots in all their
variety to graft New England stock with
Semitic branches, and fertilize the prairie with
seed from Scandinavia. But let the soil be
never so rich and abundant, we shall not have a
great art and literature until we are willing, as
the pioneers, were, to pour our blood and tears
into the furrows.
Possibly t'he best way for the young revoltes
to carry through their revolt is to see very clear
ly the line of cleavage from their elders see it
and glory in it, as Amy Lowell lias deliberately
done with' the new poetry. And yet not long
ago I heard a poet, who ranks high among the
new but draws all his originality from traditional
New England roots, say that it was not neces
sary for a man to quarrel, with his father in
order to be free, in order. to "take his place." He
must "find his direction," find it and stick to it
but that done in youth, he could wait 20 years,
if need be. for success. So speaking, in the midst
of a reading of his farm poems, Robert Frost,
with his timeless profile, his mop of tossed gray
hair, his voice with its subtle hint of dialect, con
veyed a direct sense of the creative spirit in
Amerea. And an ordinary, unilluminated New
York audience found itself suddenly sharing his
faith and patience, his life that had been lived
for immaterial rewards," his mpst beautiful in
dividual vision and expression of our national
genius. '
A vision, an expression utterly unlike Edgar
Lee Masters'. Yet is one more American than
the other? Let us be grateful for a nationality
that includes them both.
Power of India Fakirs
From the Detroit News.
The fakirs of India, according to stories com
ing from that country, have a peculiar faculty
for throwing themselves into a trance, suspend
ing all the activities of life, and remaining for
many weeks not only without food, but also with
out water and with a very scanty supply of air.
They begin their performances by taking a
dose of bhang, a powerfully stupefying drug.
Then they are lowered into a tomb, where they
remain in a profound trance for from six to eight
weeks. When resurrected, they are wan, hag
gard, weak and wasted. .
; No explanation of this extraordinary power
is forthcoming. Investigations prove that the
pulse can not be felt and there is no evidence
that the heart continues to beat. The performer
of . the apparent miracle does not appear to
breathe, and makes no movement whatever.
The power resembles that of hibernating ani
mals. A marmot can live six months without
food or water, and the story is told of a wonder
ful Egyptian snail - which was brought from
Egypt apparently dead, in 1845, and placed in
the British museum. Five years later a growth
was noticed in its mouth, and on being taken
from the card to which it was gummed and
placed in water it. soon became active and ate
cabbage leaves. ,
Ape Murderers Now. . ' '
One of the most interesting sights pf Gibral
tar until recently was a famous colony of mon
keys, which live in their native state of freedom.
These "Barbary apes," however, have de
clined so that it is believed only eight of them
survive. A strange outbreak of crime is respon
sible for the reduction of the, famous colony.
The oldest male monkey on the Rock recently
developed a passion for murdering the females
of his race. ' -
When the decrease in their numbers was
traced to this simian Landru (the name of a man
charged with murdering a score of Parisian
women) he was captured and all his teeth taken
out. It was hoped that this would make hira
harmless, but an irresistible craving for slaughter
led him to use guile. Employing all the powers
and attractions which old age and villainy still
left him, he proceeded to lure the female mon
keys to the highest point of the Rock, where,
suddenly seizing them, he would hurl them over
the cliff, at the foot of which the mangled bodies
ai Lba con fid inn creatures afterward were found.
America and the World.
Omaha, June 9. To the Editor of
Tha Bee: I . was surely interested
in reading the editorial entitled "Dis
armament Plans Not Lacking;" also
the speech of Senator G. M. Hitch
cock at Trinity collere. Durham.
Conn. Xow, the editor of The Bee
struck the nail on the head when he
stated, "Disarmament cannot be
achieved by any off-hand process.
The president of the United States
Is pledged to the policy of disarma
ment; he awaits authority from con
gress to issue the call." I heartily
agree with The Bee on that issue.
Now, how about Senator Hitch
cock's views on that importnat ques
tion? He seems to maintain the
same attitude of a year ago. He
clings to that hobby, the league of
nations and the covenant, and ex
President Wilson as the second
Moses. Has not Europe got a league
of nations? Surely it has; and yet,
France has a standing army of a
million men, reacting towards mili
tarism and desire of conquest, not
only against Germany, her ancient
foe, but in the far east, in Asia and
Africa as well. She now has and pro
poses to maintain the largest army
in the world. These are the words of
Senator Hitchcock in his speech in
the World-Herald. France, England,
Poland, Greece, all members of the
league are still in the struggle for
conquest. Will Senator Hitchcock
tell us what would have been the
consequences if the United States
had been a member of the Jeague
of nations? The billions that
France England, Poland an other
small countries owe the United States
are used to maintain the military
system that the United States
crushed In 1918. A counterplot is
going on in Paris now against the
soviet government of Russia. There
is a great danger of a war between
England, and France, wihch will
be caused through colonial Jeal
ousy. Let the United States main
tain her army and navy to a high
standard for the next two years at
least. If there be any disarmament,
let France, England and Japan dis
arm. .
Mr. Hitchcock does not under
stand European diplomacy or he
would not shed tears over that
vampire 'called the league of na
tions. America has done her share
in crushing military autocracy in
Germany but like a tapeworm it
comes together again. Let Uncle
Sam tell France and England to
come across wfth some mazuma so
we can brng relief to our overseas
men that are now denied the privi
lege to earn an honest living. So
let Europe talk about disarmament,
but let Uncle Sam keep his vigilant
e,ye across the big pond and see how
the league of nations works.
Rear Admiral Sims.
Omaha, June 9. To the Editor
of The Bee: I wish to bring out a
few facts regarding B.ear Admiral
Sims that I think very few people
know. Military men know that all
countries have an intelligence de
partment in conjunction with the
war department. According to the
United States military rules, it is en
tirely proper to try to ascertain the
otheV countries' strength, plans, etc.
In time of war it is entirely proper
to sow discord In the enemies' side.
Thus, in the last war. President Wil
son was very sympathetic to the
aims of the Bohemians. Poles and
other nationalities of the enemies
fold. What is fair to one should be
fair to all. All is fair in love and
war, especially, war,
, Apparently Germany tried to sow
revolution In Ireland and : failed.
When Rear Admiral Sims states
that the Irish were unpatriotic he
is simply rebuking himself because
the facts are the Irish have been
patriotic and always will be.
This is a land of, for and by the
people; the majority, not minority
rule.. If the people err it is their
own bed they must lie in. It is a
land of idealistic people, "God's
country." the returning soldiers
called it. Rear Admiral Sims was
correct when he said their votes
are many; one of their votes is as
good as his. If Rear Admiral Sims
loves England so well he should
stay there.
As a high naval officer. Rear Ad
miral Sims should know these facts
and should uphold the honor of the
American navy. Instead, by his un
dlsciplinary acts and words, he is
hringing discredit upon it and the
American people. . '
Rear Admiral Sims does not
speak as a representative American
President Harding is president of
all the people. I call upon the fair
minded, Jusyce-loving people to ap
peal to the president and congress
that Rear Admiral Sims be rebuked
or recalled. A BOHEMIAN.

"It Must Not Be
(From the St. Xouls Globe-Democrat.)
What of the future? Colonel
Harvey, in announcing that Ameri
ca would not recognize, speak to, or
listen to, the league of nations, "di
rectly or indirectly, openly or fur
tively," held out no promise for the
peace of the world save the hand
clasp of Great Britain. That hand
clasp is needed, to be sure, but he is
an idealist indeed who imagines It
it to be the answer to the world's
desire. , "I find a hundred thousand
sorrows touching my heart," said
President Harding, "and there is
ringing in my ears like an admoni
tion eternal, an insistent call it
must not be again! It must not be
again!" It is to the ears of the presi
dent of the United States that this
admonition comes, the man who cap.
do more than any other on the face
of the earth to make it reasonably
sure that it will not be again. And
that admonition comes from more
than a hundred thousand sorrows.
It is the voice of millions, millions
who live and millions who are dead,
sacrificed In "the war to end war,"
as many of them verily believed it
to be, and as an' anguished world
devoutly hoped and still devoutly
hopes. .If that war did not end war
we must look forward to another,
greater and more terrible, and our
children or our children's children
will be called sacrifice anew
to the Moloch of mankind. It must
not be again! But how can It be
prevented? By handclasps? By
pleasant words? By interchange of
notes? No. There is but one way,
and that is by agreement among the
nations to stand together as one in
opposition to war, to establish con
tractual relations of peace, and so to
develop international rights and na
tional independence that Justice
may be always attainable by peace
ful processes. If the effort to estab
lish such relations and such pro
cesses fai, the United States will be
held, and rightly held, responsible
for tlie failure, and it is well that
the president hears, and heeds, the
insistent admonition, "It must not
be again!"
Ludendorff Should Know.
General Ludendorff, who tells
Germany that she cannot hope for
success in fighting the French, is in
a position to speak from -experience.
Boston Transcript,
The simplest form of diarrhoea in
babies is known as indigestion. As a
rule all it calls for is a moderate
change in the baby's milk. In most
cases the baby has been overeating
or the food has been too rich.
Less food or food that is less rich
is indicated in most cases. In some
the trouble is ,that the milk ts of
poor quality, unclean, or it has been
kept too warm. Many cases of in
digestion cure themselves, if the
mother is wise enough to give' the
fretful baby water instead of milk
to quiet him.
Other and more serious diar
rhoeas, according to De Sanctis and
Parder, who write in the archives of
pediatrics, are the fermentative,
putrefactive, recurrent, and infec
tious cases of diarrhoea. They pass
frequent greenish watery stools con
taining some mucus and maybe a
little blood. There are from Ave to
20 stools, a day. These stools are
acid and they burn, irritate, and red
den the buttocks and surrounding
parts. There is gas in the bowels.
The fever is not very high as fevers
in babies go. The child is irritable,
restless, cross. There may be vomit
ing. Some weight is lost. This pic
ture most parents can match out of
their experience.
The plan of treatment which the
above named doctors have found
effective in this type of diarrhoea is
as follows:
1. A dose of castor oil.
2. If there are no signs of acidosis
the baby Is given no food for 12 to
24 hours. It has water frequently,
but no milk or other food.
3. At the end of the period of
starvation feeding with casein cal
cium milk is begun. Two-thirds of
an ounce of casein calcium is mixed
with four minces of cold milk. Bring
twelve ounces of the milk to a
boil. Add to the boiling milk the
four ounces of cold milk containing
the casein calcium. Boil the mix
ture for five to 10 minutes, stirring
constantly. Strain. Add 18 ounces
of boiled water. Cool. Use.
If the sick baby is less than 4
months old they use a mixture of
one-third milk and two-thirds water
instead of half and half. To this the
casein calcium is added in the same
way. No sugar is added.
No drugs are used except soda,
and that is given or not, according
to whether there are any indications
of acidosis.
At the end of eight days, as a rule,
the diarrhoea will have stopped and
the child can go back on ordinary
The danger in making use of this
treatment is that acidosis may not
ba recognized and the diarrhoea
may be of some other type. The
general rule in treating baby diar
rhoeas is to give a dose of castor oil
and to stop all food. This is a good
rule, but if the case happens to be
one of; acidosis following the rule
may do more harm than good.
xnererore, it is advisable when a
