Congressmen Interested in conser
vation are making au urgent effort
to Blido their measures in ahead of
tho national defense program. They
are not necessarily indifferent to tho
need of armament, but are actuated
by the conviction that, when the de
fense debate Ia once launched, con
servation will have no show.
There ls nothing particularly new
In the measures, with the exception
of tho rural credits bill now being
whipped Into shape. Tho homeetoad
and water power bills and the lcaBlng
bill for coal, oil and gas lands, are
substantially thu same as thoso pre
sented In 1913. The water power act
ls almost identical with tho ono that
passed the' house last spring.
These measures, and others allied
with them, are part of the program
outlined repeatedly by Secretary
Lane, and aro of vital Interest to the
w?st. The whole country will prob
ably support. the effort to 'J-'vs the?j
through congress as speedily as pos
They do not conflict with the pre
paredness program In any respect ex
cept that thoy will distract a little
intceet from lt until they are out of
thc.way. They do not require a money
outlay large enough to intcrfero se
riously with adequate armament. And
as Secretary Lane baa pointed out,
.they really harmonize wltb a broad
system of. defense, bbcauso they will
help to develop and render available
tho natural resources which, niter
the people themselves, aro the nn
tl?b's. greatest bulwark. '
THE PEACE.TRIP AN!? THE PRESS
i Tho .bent thing we've seen? emanat

Is tho "confession ot faith" drawn up
at^Christianla by tho American news
paper correspondents who went along.

but a world-wide education."
Tho Verdens Gang (thc Way ot thc
World) put the same idea moro blunt
"Ford ls helpless as a child in at
tempting an expedition of this sort,
on account of his lack of knowledge
of the conditions in Europe."
Nobody herc or ubroad has serious
ly questioned Mr. Ford'o good inten
tions. But it hno hceu obvious from
the first that lie was not cut out to
lead a peace movement in a world
war of such vastness and complexity.
Even If tho moment had been auspic
ious for peace-and it wasn't-the
Detroit manufacturer was hardly thc
mau to "put lt over."
"I am a' mechanic who happens to
have made money," Mr. Ford once
?hld modestly in a newspaper Inter
view. A mechanic of warm heart,
liberal hand and high ideals, but still
a mechanic. And if ever a situation
culled for a great diplomat, familiar
with ail the history of Europe, the
personalities of its rulers, tho preju

of his conversation went like this":
"Wo wont up to, a house the oili

two E.ulgarian comitndjis. 'i i . .

sc one of us threw a bomb, just like
this one-(holding out an iron t$x
'..'.io size of a cake ot soap-"and
blew up the place. It killed twenty
eight and woundci the rest." An
other part of his conversation rap:
'. "Did you read ^Tolstoy's predic
tion of this great war? He pulled
a soiled clipping from his pocket ar?d
read what Tolstoy ' ad written tb
1912-thero would bo a great war gjt
