Played War Game Safe
Spa, Belgium. The former head
quarters of the Kaiser and his gen
eral staff Is disclosing some extraor
dinarily queer facts these days about
the men who engineered the world
war. Take, for one, Hlndenburg,
Germany's super-man, around whom
reams of poetry have been written
disclosing him as a fearless Napo
leon leading his troops to victory.
As a matter of fact he spent a great
deal of time In a wonderfully con
structed "funk-hole' or dugout mi
derneath the grounds of his vilia
here. The kaiser, too, had a simi
lar hiding place at Neubols, near a
comic opera trench system about
which he is said to have paraded for
the benefit of motion pictures. .

NEW IDEAS THROUGH READING
Important to Select Good Books, but
Practically Anything Is Better
ifhan Nothing. ' , .
A teacher who bad the real Interest
of ber pupils at, heart, and who took
a genuine Interest. In them and theft"
activities after at. well as during school
hours, was trying ber best to reach a
particularly trying boy of about" thir
teen years,. He did not seem at all In
terested In his work or studies, and
she was attempting to discover Just
what he was Interested In and how be
spent bis leisure time. , Dpon Inquiry
be found be was fond of taking long
and solitary walks, although he dis
claimed any Interest In the beautiful
or scientific In nature.
, "But what do you do with yourself?"
the teacher Insisted. "What do yon
think about? You don't read very
much, do you?" .
. 'hfl boy denied that be read, and as
serted that when be was off alone that
way he liked to think his own
I wonder what kind of thoughts that
poor boy occupied himself with? He
never read, and he was apparently Im
pervious to new Ideas of any sort He
was Just content with his own empty
thoughts they must have been poor
and stale and empty, for be never
opened bis mind to new ones.,
The best and most efficient way to
get Ideas Is by reading and It makes
such a difference, therefore,1 what we
read.' But It Is decidedly better to read
almost anything that comes to band
than nothing at all. For If one has
nothing In the mind at all, such pe
culiar things are bound to creep In.
Isn't It better to re-thlnk the thoughts
of fine men than to think your own

Many have i refused to believe the

their shouts and the horns blown bv

PRESENTS ARGUMENT8 IN. SUP
PORT OF PLAN FOR FIVE-
, YEAR TEST PERIOD.
Washington. Direor General Me
Adoo, testifying before the senate
Interstate commerce committee at
the opening of the hearings on the
future policy towards railroads, wa
subjected to a fire of questions by
Senator Cummins of Iowa and Sen
ator Kellogg of Minnesota, Republi
cans, intended to develop why Mr.
McAdoo believes It advisable to turn
back the roads to private manage
ment as soon as possible, if congresa
does not extend the period of fed
eral control for Ave years.
Both senators argued by implica
tion for retention by the government
of the railroads for the full 21 months
after the declaration of peace author
ized by the existing law and legisla
tlon meanwhile by congress to pro
vide a permanent solution of the rail
Mr. McAdoo gave three reasons
why he does not believe m retaining
control of the railroads for i
That raljroad companies already
are challenging the authority i of thfl
railroad administration to require
them to purchase certain equipment
and otherwise are not giving a full
measure of co-operation.
, That some state railroad commis
sions threaten to dispute the right of
the federal management to dictate
interstate ratos in , normal peace
times, and .
Thnt the uncertaiftty of the future
would cause a ferment within rail
road organizations particularly de
structive to morale of employes anj
To Senator Cummins' comment that
he thought It "little less than a crim-3
to turn back the roads at an early
date with the standards of wages,
material costs and rails as they ara"
and that unless the roads are given
more time to prepare, "It will cm
little short of disastrous," Mr. Mc
"I can not foresee such a situation
at all unless the state commissions
and the interstate commerce commis
sion, Ignoring the necessity for main
taining wages and the rights of Jnsc
oompeflsatlon. would reduce the rates
unjustly. My Idea on this railroad
problem is to stabilize conditions for
five years, to play safe, and try out
unified . management for that.' long.
Then we will know" better how to
deal with the railroad question."
vMr. McAdoo declared that his 'In
-cllnatlons "had always been against
public ownership and in favor of
some sort of private ownership with
strong unified control," and that ho
was not in a posit:on o say whether
government operation, private opera
tion by railroads merged into region
al monopolies, or diversified operation
by eich road under government su
pervision would be preferable

Cheerfulness Is hard work when It
