' Europe and the United States.
Lloyd George expresses profound, melancholy
tegret that the United State i not preent
at Genoa. Then he proceed to outline the very
good reatont why our country hat no part in the
proceeding there. Me "compared Europe to
teething racial lava, which, like the earth'i crust,
was seeking a proper level," says the press dU
patch from Genoa. That tells the story. The
I'nited States hold aloof, not because of any
lack of interet in or sympathy for Europe, but
because the feeling over here it that Europe must
do something for itself.
Kacial differences, national a.pirations, dynas
tic ambitions, all must go into the discard, if
peace is again to come to the troubled continent.
Talk about "hungry Russia" and "angry Ger
man is all right in a political convention, but
such expressions should not be heard in a gath
ering assembled to deal with economical ques
tions on a sound basis.
Russia, one of the world's most fertile regions,
a food exporter of the first rank, is hungry, be
cause Russians are trying to enforce an absurdity
on themselves, and on the rest of the world. If
they can only be induced to resume systematic
production, their hunger will soon disappear.
Germany's anger may not be so easily relieved,
, but it will disappear if the other nations of
Europe will proceed to a definite stand, and
make it plain to Germany that anger is not the
mood in which to approach a settlement.
The muddle into which Europe has fallen is
partly due to the war, and partly due to a wrong-
l.eadedness in the course adopted since the war.
Nations professing to be guided by the altruistic
spirit have really resorted to the age-old methods
of diplomatic double-crossing one another, have
sought special advantages, and undertaken' to
fhift responsibilities as well as burdens.' The con
ference at Genoa was to take cognizance of eco
nomic questions; it has been almost completely'
occupied with matters political; " ' "
Xloyd George knows, and so do Poincaire,
Schanzer, Rathenau, Tchitcherin and all the rest,
'hat the only restoration for Europe is that which
willi come through hard work, T.h.e future of.
the (people over there was mortgaged for an'
hundred years by the 'war, and that mortgage
' will! not be lifted sooner. Another war may come,
hut It will only make the situation worse. When
th'ey get ready to help themselves, Europeans will
find Americans ready to ajd,. but Genoa so far
does not promise much in the way of permanent
torlum, and have mors, permanent iid abiding
fleet. Parent! who neglect their duty to their
children havt no right to complain if anything
goes wrong, and they can not afford to let na
ture like her course, for the Impulses of an
adolescent of either sex art not always the tafett

The question whether the decline in agricul
tural prices was induced by overproduction in
IWO U discussed in a report of the joint eon
grestional board of inquiry. The conclusion U
that it was more a cue of underconsumption
than overproduction. Throughout Europe and
In many instances in the United States there art
people who do not have enough to cat That la'

The quantity of farm production in the United
States has not kept pace with population. From
1899 to 1909 the agricultural output increased 10
per cent while population increased 21.5 per cent.
From 1909 to 1919 the aggregate volume in
creased 10.5 per cent and population 14.5 per
cent. Quantity output of other-industries, such
as mining and manufacturing, meanwhile has
outstripped its old ratio to population.
The congressional investigation reports that
meaured in terms of , purchasing power the
farmers dollar in 1920 was worth 89 cents. In
May, 1921, it was worth 77 cents. Last year it
was worth less than in any twelve months in
thirty years, it is declared.
America is not yet in any immediate danger
of a food shortage, but unless- agriculture is
placed on a more stable and prosperous basis,
production will some day be discouraged , so .that
eating will become a luxury.
Cheaper Ways to Market.
A noteworthy fact is that even among the
railroad engineers who came to Omaha for the
demonstration of river control there was a deal
ot sentiment in favor of developing navigation
on the inland waters. As one of them expressed
it, steamboat traffic on the Missouri or on the
St. Lawrence waterway would not compete with
the land lines, but would supplement them. It is
generally admitted that once business enters on
a more active phase the railroads will not be
able to handle the traffic in any adequate way.
Car shortage and freight blockades in ' the
terminals have hampered commerce before this,
and will do so increasingly unless new ways to
market are developed. If those new routes are
iound to be cheaper, then the entire nation will
benefit. The charges per ton mile for shippers
on tfie government barge line running from St.
Louis to New Orleans amounted to 3.86 mills
last year. Similar charges 1y the railroads aver
aged 12.74 mills. With such a saving to be ac
complished, it is extravagant not to use our
Heavy, slow and bulky freight is especially
adapted to water transportation. Were the rail
roads to be relieved of this load, their lines would
be cleared for better and speedier service on
other commodities.. Anything that adds to
;the wealth of the people of America benefits the
railroads as well. No doubt the financiers who
control the rail systems can not catch this vision,
but their technical staffs see it plainly.
Democrats Going Both Ways.
One proposed, report from the minority mem
bers of the house ways and -means committee
will get approval generally. It has to do with
the proposed loan to Liberia. . It would be mani
festly unfair to suggest that theMopposition is in
any sense due to the fact that Liberia is a col
ored republic, a government of, for and by ne
groes. Such a consideration would not control
a democrat in casting his vote. What is inter
esting is that the minority members have finally
discovered that the United States has some home
problems, and can not afford to carry on as
'Lady Bountiful" any longer.
Over at the other end of the Capitol, how
ever, we note Senator Simmons of North Caro
lina energetically pleading that American mar
kets be kept open to European manufacturers.
His party will pof." consent 'to 'loan'money to a
friendly government, to which ours is under
obligation, but. ii'. willing"1 to. mike the greater
contribution of sacrificing "American industries
f tfiat fht rpills and factories ?f Germany and Eng
land may continue to run full time while our own
are idle. '
; ; An Omaha merchant returned from, Germany
recently with the news that German factories
are running overtime with orders booked
eighteen months ahead. ' Do you notice anything
like that in the United States? The line from
Hamburg to New York is a busy one. A Brit-"
ish financier told us some months ago that Great
Britain could not pay us in gold, but could make
our automobiles, typewriters, sewing machines
and other things for us. What would American
workmen be doing in the meantime?
' The protective tariff measure the republicans
mean to pass is not designed to please foreign
manufacturers, nor to' pay foreign war debts.
Its principal purpose is to preserve the home
market for the home producers.
Get Down to Fundamentals.
The Bee is inclined to side with the father
who expressed, himself, at a meeting of parents
and' pupils, that it is disgusting to waste so much
time discussing enforcement of prohibition and
abolishing of unseemly dances among high school
students. Once in the history of this nation the
discussion of such questions between parents and
pupils would have been short, sharp and de
cisive. That custom ought to be revived, in
spirit it least. Girls and boys of high school age
should be, and happily most of them are, un
touched by the looseness of life that has scandal
ized the nation within the last two or three years.
It is not easy to believe that very many of these
lads and lassies are. lured, away from, study or
into wrongdoing by. the bootlegger of the dance
hall. Such as are can easily be located, and
should be disciplined promptly and properly. It
is time to get down to fundamentals. Let the
parents cut out their joint, debates' with their
children over these -subjects, go into- executive
session with the youngsters, and try to instill'
some idea of parental authority and proper be

Virginia produced Lady Astor and nowhere
could there be so much lively interest in her
present American triumph as in the Old Domin

The fate of the human race is at stake at
