PRESIDENT On April 23 after the
WILSON AND Peace Conference had
ITALY in vain endeavored to
reach an agreement on ltaiy s ciauu
to Fiume, President Wilson who op
posed the Italian claim, published a
liner to ItalV as a
friend to abandon her claim, in con
seauence the Italian members of the
-pe9 oe Conference including Premier
Orlando and Foreign Minister Sonnino
have returned to Rome where they
have been received with strong ac
claim as the guardians of Italy's rights.
As a further result it is reported that
the Italians have sent 200,000 men to
occupy the disputed city.
There are two questions involved in
President Wilson's statment.
The first is as to whether or not
Italy was just in her claim. Certainly
in Mr. Wilson's view Italy was wrong,
but we must remember that Mr. Wilson
is judging by a standard he himself
The second question is whether or not
Mr. Wilson acted wisely in publishing
his statement, speaking as Premier
Orlando said in protest, over the heads
of the Italian Government to the Ital
ian people. Information is hard to get,
the news from Paris on this subject is
very unsatisfactory and apparently
censored, but with the light before us,
I believe that it would have been much
better for President Wilson to have
said nothing and to have continued to
try to reach a compromise. Now Italy
is mad, and the peace of the world is
again endangered, we hope, only In a

The Old Oaken Bucket
is Full of Bugs
Listen to what Dr. Harry E. Barnard, chief chem
ist of the Indiana State Board of Health and head
of the food and drug division, had to-say before the
Indiana Sanitary and Water Supply Association.
"We lustily sing "The old Oaken Bucket," a mass
of twaddle, sentimental and nothing more, which if
the facts could be set down in cold figures would be
proven to be responsible for hundreds of cases of
TYPHOID annually. City folks, accustomed to
drawing water out of faucets, love to think of the
days of their childhood. Moss-covered buckets,
stone-walled wells, the cool temperature of the water
drawn therefrom, have an appeal which breaks down
the wall of caution which surrounds their life, and
it so happens that many cases of typhoid follow ex
cursions into the country, the place where pure
water is supposed to be obtainable everywhere, but
is, in fact, the place where the thirsty traveler takes
his life in his own hands while he draws water out
of a polluted well."
Why take any chances, when pure, sterillized
water is obtainable at so small a cost as H20, 50
cents a bottle, delivered any where in this city, Re
member, not a mineral water, nor yet a medicine
water, but 100 pure water.
