Scrubbing Floors at the
Peace Conference Not a
Soldiers Idea of What the
Americans Fought For.
By RICHARD SEElLYE .ONES
Paris.- Pursuing my back stairs
studlit's of the peace conference last
night. I sneaked into the alley en
trance of the Hotel ('rillon, which is
headquarters of the iAmerican peace
delegation, and turning a dark cor
ner in the kitchen section of the
great hostelry, was about to climb
into a dumb waiter in which I could
eolude the plain clothes forces and get
to the third floor garbage chute.
where they empty the waste basket
from( Colonel House's oftice. In this
way I would have acquired inaterial
wit ti which to ihrill many readers -
hnt just as all seemed to be going
well with my plan I stumbled over
the half-prostrate form of a soldier.

of these &I' nii ideas about disarma

America -i have a standing army

backer i lk home and everybody

said that \tlerica must be able to
mobilict nIo trained aviators with
live batlet ph lies for each of them in
24 hours, so we would always have
command of the air. And in the
same paper was something about the
naval appropriation bill. which looks
a good deal like a new Liberty loan.
Out of all these ideas the notion
finally struck me that nerhans the
reason so many soldiers don't like to
ie in an army, and so many states
men want big armies, is stutied up
in the fact that hero's of Chateau
Thierry and the Argonne are today
scrubbing the back stairs of the
peace conference in Paris. It is
summed up in the lines of Mr. Kip
"It's Tommy this. and 'T'ommy that
And Tommy what you may:
But it's 'Howdy. Mr. Atkins,'
When the hand begins to play.''
The hand has quit playing, and
soldiering in peace times is some
thing else again.
Soldier ;till a Hig Fictor
The matter of soldiers and soldier
ing is quite an important feature of
the peace conference just now. It is
involved in almost every one of Ihe
national and international question:
which are being thtished out from
day to day. It even creeps into the
league of nations plans. If the league
becomes a fact, with some of us in
it and some not especially Germany
and Russia--those that are in must
have enough soldiers to keep the
peace with and bet weetn those that
Then again there are all sorts of
nations in more or less trouble these
days, and all of them have got to
have soldiers to get them out.
Either that or the holsheviks will use
wooden clubs and run things to suit
themselves. Spain is constantly on
the edge of trouble. Italy and the
*Jugo-Slavs have severed speaking
relations, Germany is disturbed in
ternally, the Poles are disturbed on
all sides. and goodness knows what
shape the Lithutnianti and Ruthen
inus and t'krainiins may be in to
morrow. These and other people
just. naturally can't see their way
clear to get along witlhonI soldiers.
And if one country has an army the
next must have one. So on ad in
uinitum. Even a peace conference has
to have a lot of soldiers.
I'm afraid my efforts to get. at col
onel House's waste basket didn't
help much in furnishing you with
news about peace, but. I til still on
the joi, trying hard, and will hope
not to get thrown off the track next
time by any unhappy incident like
encountering victorious heroes on the
