great deal more of the aame sort will
f , . , ,
be done as month, pass snd the ramifi
eationi" and importance of tbeae effort
will more definitely appear. Indeed
after-flic war enterprises ta adminietra-
ill. .i i i
tlou and in legislation are already dim-
ly flg'.iring in national polities. They :
are nol selfish enterprises, either from
tLe Individual or nntional atandpoint,
lyond a recognition of conditions that,
la a few months or a few years (when
; ever peace comes) will generally apply.
There are at linnd two concrete illus- ;
t rat ions. The more forcible one is the I
aha i eg of preliminary plans for huge
undertakings by the government in the
far western states in reclaiming arid
buiiix. This fits in with recently an-
nounced plans of the government re
garding public lnnds in Hawaii. Quite
flfteci years nuo the interior depart-
ment. by congressional authority, em
Larked upon projects for "putting wa
ter r.Kn desert land,, ' mnking this laud
tillable and attractive to settlers, to
whom it was sold on easy installments.
The government now has twenty five
Or thirty of these projects scattered
over n dozen states on the Pacific Coast
ml in the Rockv Mountain section. !
Thu policy has vindicated itself
thro:,'h years of more or less tribula-
tion. "Theoretically the government is
reimbursed for all its vast expenditures, i
and, in spite of temporary discourage-I
ment. theory is working out tolerably
well in actual practice. Certain of the i
projects for government reclamation (
were noi inorougniy prepared ana sate ,
guarded and when this became plain
a few vears ago, it gave the reclama
tion service a black eye temporarily,
but that is now in the past. Recently
$100,000 has been voted Viy congress for
snrveys of drainage basins and reser
Voir rites and all that. The depart
Inputs of the interior and of agriculture
Including the geological aurvey, are

Of physical data such as stream mean

to having all this ready for undertak
lag after the war an enormous con
Struction program. A bill to appropri
ate 1,000,000,000 for this work has j
been introduced in both houses of con
Kress.
Homes for Soldiers.
, The basic idea is that when the mil
lions of American soldiers return from
service in Prance they will want alike
work and homes. Homesteads have al
'. ways been in brisk demand after every
' American war and they must be low
priced. In earlier days these were giv
en, without cost, to ex soldiers out of
the public domain. Hut the enormous
areas of public lands, available for
farms, no longer exist and the govern- long after the war is over. The Hog
ment must invade the arid wastes, Island yard, along, near Philadelphia,
which, when properly watered, make with its fifty modern ways now corn

, . Thousands upon thousands of sol
1 dicrs, now in France or about to go
there, will, on their r-turn, have op-
. portnuity as luborers, clerks, foremen
and engineers to reclaim a vast acre
ge in the West on plans the govern
ment will have ready, and, sutmequent-
1 W, to settle upon these new farms.
The hundreds of millions of dollars
'that the government will put out in
these enterprises will be paid buck into I
' the treasury in the course of fifteen or1
twenty years.

reconstruction must be in a harbinger
of peace before many months in that
eternal procedure by which so much
that is carefully throughout and exe

but the subject is being pursued at
Washington in no such spirit.

I'ossibly stronger even than this seuti
ment is the determination to proscribe
Germany. It will be long before (ler
many can gain any resjiect upon the
sea. Great fleets of American mer
chant ships will cross the Atlantic
400 ships a vear. Germany's trans
Atlantic carrying trade is gone and
neither the huge British merchant
fleets nor the huge American merchant
fleets will allow the restoration of thU
German carrying trade to tie male

docks and piers at New York of two
powerful German ship concerns the
other day stands as an indication of
what is to be.

MERE BOY IS KING OF AIR,
KEEPS HUN OUT OF CLOUDS
t.ONMwiN, June 30 Orentest of all
living aviators, in the estimation of
aviaiors themselves, is Capt. James
V, ford McCudden, the twenty-two
ye.ir old hoy who wns recently awarded
he Victoria Cress.
McCudden Una brought down more
enemy planes than snch famous fivers

rcconis are, Dilt Allied flyers are
careful not to try to detract from the
glory of the enemy champion.
McCuddea has accounted for fifty
four enemy planes, and forty-two of
these have been definitely destroyed,
lie destroyed four planes in ninety
mini. tea. Nineteen of the destroyed
planes fell on the British side of the
li ne.
How V. C. Was Won
No wonder that, in recounting the
feats of the young British champion,
even the writers of the sober Official
Gazette are inspired to use the lan
gniie,e of enthusiastic admiration. They
tell us that 8ec.-l.ieut. (temporary
captain) James Byford McCudden,
I). S. O., M. C, M. M., Roynl Flying
Cor s, has now received the V. C. "for
conspicuous bravery, exceptional per
severance, keenness and very high
devotion to duty on various occasions
during December, 1917, and Janunry
nnd February of the present year."
Capt. McCudden also has the Pis
tinnuished Hervice Order, the Military
Cross and the Military Medal. More-
over, he has added a bar to both his could not comfortably make room for

i.mlce. It was a fortnluh! ago when
h.. va-:( home on leave an l was being
"lionized" at a faehlhnabl. West Knd
house. A woman of title was cross
examining him about the decorations
on his tunic, asking him what each
iibb'iu meant ami how he irt it. The
young hero escaped with a smothered
cjoan or reiier.

McCudden was in the armv before
w8r whi,h found him a private
j the Roynl Kngineers Then he
transferred to the balloon section of
,),,, nOVb! Flving Corps and went to
the front as an air mechanic, lie rose
to the rank of flight sergeant, took his
pi lot's certificate in 1916. and got his
commission last year. His elder
brother, who waa afterwards killed
whi'e flying, is said to have remarked
to their mother, "You "ill see Jim

were attacked between twq-thirty and

lines. On the morning of the same

of these he shot two dowr.
"On January .10, 1918, he, single-

On this occasion he only returned home

"If I lose one arm ovef there I'll
