"It Can't Be Done!"
When our boys started for the
German lines they met the most ter
rific hell fire the world has ever
These boys went through that fire
and captured the lines, one after an
other. They did it by doing "the
things that can't be done."
When the transportation problem
of getting our troops to Europe faced
the combined councils of P,ritain,
France and the United States, it was
an apparently impossible task.
But that job was putthrough by
the men in the army, the mei'cvhant
marine and the transportation service
doing "the things that can't be done."
The prompt and effective housing
and supplying of our soldiers, in
France,- the construction of depots
and transportation lines, the equip
ments of ports for quick handling of
ships, presented to the American lead
ers a program which for the size and
the speed demanded had never been
known or attempted in the history of
That program was carried through
successfully, because our engineers
and workmen did "the things that
can't be done."
The American shipbuilding plants
under the presure of war's demands

things that can't be done."

Facing the problems of peace, the

order to uphold their position in the

Like Mr. McAdoo, he has made
success of his job ond he retires with

job to take the helm of this publica

tor, manager, ad-man, superintend

and ash-man after the retirement of
Wallace H. Gilpin. He deserves all
the praise he can get and if he

We Won't Go to the Dogs!
The peace conference is sitting in
Paris. The world is waiting, for we
know it is goingJ.0 be a different
world when the session is over.
It may take a long time for the
settlement of the questions under dis
cussion on the other hand plans for

weeks ago. The sittings may end so
suddenly that the end of the war was
a long drawn out affair in compari
However it ends there will be a lot
of folks dissatisfied.
If they had been sitting in Wilson's
place they could have done better.
You bete her!

place, teeing that many of the ends
gained fell short of what they ex

They will bp positive the war is lost
and the world is going to the dogs.
But neve mind how the peace con
ference ends, the world is not going
to the dogs.
We must prepare ourselves now to
look at the peace as settled in a big,
broad, far-dghted way.
After every election there are cer

The end of the world won't come

half of them.
Let' begin now to look at the out

Let's prepare ourselves to admit that
even what has been accomplished has
been better- than nothing at all.
Let's at least be appreciative of the
fact that the war was won by us,
That' j something!
Let's admit that we have already
come closer to the Parliament of

come out thus far as it has and trust
that if the Almighy has steered
things for us to this point, there's no
especial reason to expect that all at
once He's going to go off now and
leave us to the Bolsheviki.
No, the world won't go to the
dogs. Never mind who wins or who
loses at the Peace Conference, we'll
get a better world for the furnace of
suffering through ' which we have
gone. The Peace Conference will be

So let's keep cool and be frrntcful
for small favors. The Germans
didn't get us at any rate. The time
for real pessimism was last March
