THE HiaH SCHOOL "PRATS"
There seems naqucstion but that
there, nre undcsiraWo features about
the secret societies of Washington's
high schools. The president of the
iioara oi -Education nas siaiea puu
Hcly that "there arc certain evils
connected with the societies" that
must be eradicated if they are to bo
Tho fraternities and sororities
hare beetr a storm center in high
school life for years. They must
put up a strong case if they aro to
justify their existence in tho face of
tho trouble they have caused. The
burden of proof rests with the socie
ties to show that whatever good is
claimed for them is enough to coun
teract the charges brought against
them by parents, teachers, and
Other cities have found the so
cieties undemocratic and have elim
inated them. Colleges have found
the high school fraternity lacking,
and have tried to suppress them by
refusing admission in college socle
tics to pupils belonging to the high
Opponents of the societies charge
that they haye played politics,
drawn religious'and racial lines, sup
ported club houses in direct viola
tion of school rules, and committed
'other infractions of school regula
tions and good taste.
On Tuesday these charges will bo
.aired before a committee of the
Board of Education, and friends and
foes of fraternities alike hope that
their future will be settled once for
all. Their bad features have been
enhanced many fold by their anoma
lous position for tho past few years.
THE 50MAIE MUST DECIDE IT
"The war will be won in tho Bal
kans," declare the German military
commentators. "The decision must
bo reached in the campaign that has
started on the Somme line," insist
the allied authorities. Perhaps each
ido is committing itself to a par
ticular program as part of that
strategy which in war makes it al
ways desirable to mislead tho enemy.
But the expressions have the ring
It is not difficult to understand
why each side takes the view it does.
Germany wants to win in the Bal
kfins, because she knows, now, that
to win in tho west is impossible.
France is too strong to be crushed.
The vision of Antwerp ns the great
Gorman port, looking out on a Brit
ain waiting to be conquered, is dis
sipated. France and England, to
gether with Belgium, have now
builded up n power on the west of
Europe which for generations to
come will insure against German
expansion into the overawcing
western power. They have hurled
the Prussian back from the Atlantic
seaboard, and compelled him to turn
southeastward in the hope of get
ting that opportunity for expansion
which was the aim of the war. Ger
many already sees that she must di
rect her enterprises less to tho west,
more to the east Beaten from the
Mamc back to the Rhine, she would
yet have the chance to come out a
gainer if he could consolidate iqto
a great Teuton federation everything
from Baltic to Black, and hold
the window looking out on Asia
Minor. To this latter enterprise sho
brings the advantage of having rail
communication, continuousness of
territory, and complete domination
of her allies. Constantinople would
not servo ns well as Antwerp; but
it would serve. It would menace
Suez, instead of London. It is not
surprising that Berlin begins to ad
mit that its prime aspiration is east
ward rather than westward.
The allies intend to strike the de
cisive blow in the west, but they
intend that it shall be decisive also
In the oast. They purpose yet to
settle tho issues of Belgium, and
France, and the Balkans, and Asia
Minor, of Africa and Australasia by
a grand coup in tho west. Berlin
has said from the beginnings that
the fate of colonlesf would be settled,
as always in the past, on tho battle
fields of Europe. The allies are tak
ing Germany at its word; they pro
pose to settle the wholo series of war
Issues on tho field of northern
France. Tho course of events may
yet bring the decision in another
field; but it is evidently the inten
tion of the allies to make it here.
A WOMAN'S FLIOHT RECORD
A woman who had never before
undertaken a long- distance flight,
guided a small biplane from Chicago
to Hornell, N. Y., BDO miles, without
once descending. She captures the
American continuous flight record,
and does it in circumstances that
mako thr achievement the niorc rc-
that sho would have reached New
York without descent but for en
countering a strong head wind that
drew on her supply of gasolone in
combating it, so that sho had to
como down for a new store.
Miss Law'B distanco record is
about 100 miles bettor than that
made by Aviator Ca'rlstrom a few
days ago, when ho made a now rec
ord. There is no doubt that tho Chicago-New
York, flight of. 1,000 miles
will' presently bo made without interruption.-
Beyond that, tho prom
ise of flight across the Atlantic need
not be accounted b'y any means im
possible, or long to do deferred.
Some' of tho big dirigibles now in ex
istence would doubtless accomplish
this without great difficulty, pro
vided always that reasonably favor
able weather conditions were en
countered. But trans-ocean flight
will not bo an attractive perform
ance until thero is reasonable assur
ance against necessity of stopping
awhile in mid-Atlantic. It is an in
hospitable and very damp p)ace for
rest 'and refreshment, and gasolene
supplies, if needed, arc not abund
ant. THE RAILROAD INQUIRY
There will be a wide divergence of
opinion as to whether the sweeping
Congressional investigation of rail
road problems which begins1 today
will be more or less useful, by rea
son of including an inquiry into Gov
ernment ownership. Tho language
which adds this to the number of
phases to be examined, was added
after tho original draft of the reso
lution had been made. If the pub
lic shall be led away from full con
sideration of other matters that may
be developed, because of the notion
that this investigation is the real
beginning toward formulating a
Government ownership program,
then it will be unfortunate. Like
wise, if the railroad and financial au
thorities get into, .tho mind of pre
senting their case with a view mere
ly tto making it combat any senti
ment in favor of public ownership,
that will bo a mistake. There is
need for the utmost candor in this
examination. The public is more im
pressed now than ever before, with
the immensity of this transportation
question; there is more intelligent,
understanding, sincere misgiving
about public ownership even among
people who have leaned toward it.
The inevitable involvement of all na
tional finance, industry, commerce,
and development; of wages, salaries,
regulation of service conditions and
rates, with the solution of the rail
roads' problems is understood more
clearly than it has been in the past.
Thero is no longer any worth-while
element that would light-heartedly
plunge' into Government ownership
because it is something different,
If Government ownership is com
ing, it is yet n long way off. The
present problems of the railroads
are to get new capital, to insure it
fair returns, to execute necessary
works of expansion in the face of
the unprecedentedly high prices of
materials and labor, and to adjust
their wage and working relations
with employes. It is impossible that
Government shall wield the power
over rates, without assuming large
responsibility also for revenues. It
is unthinkable that Government shall
assume to fix wages, as it does by
the Adamson act, without consid
ering whence shall come the money
to pay them.
These are all problems that would
be eternally before tho Government
if it owned the railroads. They seem
to be very definitely before the pub
lic anyhow. To cope with them is
not so very different under private
ownership than it would bo under
public, save in one regard. It is now
commonly realized that "public own
ership" would mean merely a sub
stitution of Government securities,
in the public's hands, for corporate
securities that the public now holds:
the same public would really own the
property in tho last analysis.
One large advantage would be
gained through public ownership.
The forty-nine different varieties of
regulation could be done away with.
But that could quite as well bo ac
complished with a continuonco of
private ownership nnd management.
If it looks like a huge task to amend
the Constitution and abolish State
interference with transportation, tho
answer is that it would be yet a
greater task to take over the roads
and run them from Washington.
PUTTINO SERBIA BAQK ON THB
The provisional government of
Serbia, it is announced, will at once
be established at Monastir, which
has fallen beforo tho drivo of tho
Serbians' rehabilitated army, and
their allies. Monastir was acquired
by Serbia in that glorious war In
which the federated little states of
Balkania almost pushed the Turk out
of Europe. Bulgaria turned traitor
to the alliance, and attempted to as
sassinate her coadjutors. Instead,
Bulgaria was roundly trounced in
the war of 101?. Then the Bulgars
dickered with the Teuton powers for
means to get revenge. A "Sofia gov
ernment dominated by a German
King made alliance with tho central
empires, but made it in secret, so
-'-.. , Mjr vran nj,j0 0
carry on along series of negotia
tions with the allies whllo tho Por-
mans wero making all ready for tho
'drive against Serbia in 1015. Al a
result, the nllios wero not ready ef
fectively to aid Serbia, and that gaW
lant little country was literally
wiped off tho map. Tho remnants of
, its crushed army wow taken under
tho allies' naval wing, given a
refuge, re-equipped, and brought
back to aid the Saloniki army.
Now tho tide has turned, and tho
Serbs are in tho van of a northern
movement which menaces Bulgaria
and gives hope of relieving Rou
manta, sadly in need of assistance.
Serbia sees prospect of winning its
way back to the Balkan 'map, whilo
Bulgaria faces tho danger of being
treated as tho Serbians wero served
so lately. The campaign that took
Monastir has been one of the most
brilliant of tho war. It has demon
strated, what the allies so much
needed to prove in the Near East,
that on occasion tho entente forces
can make a move in that area with
out necessarily blundering. Per
haps therein lies tho greatest signifi
cance of Monastir's fall and tho be
ginning of Serbian rehabilitation.

can Federation of Labor has finished
tho business of being entertained and
louay the real business of the con
Most' of the Federation's work
Ilea before it, to bo completed by
next Saturday, That means that a
majority of tho 100 resolutlonse In
troduced must be reported upon by
committees: that tho Important ones
must undergo lengthy and perhaps
heated discussions ltnnn tllA j-i,,h.
klon floor, nnd that the Federation
musi commit or reruse to commit it
self upon the principles the resolu
tions propose, all in six days.
The resolutions committee, headed
by James Duncan, first vice presi
dent of the Federation, Is ready to
report favorably a resolution offered
by delegates representing the Inter
national unions of printers, pressmen
and their assistants, stcreotypera and
electrotype, photo engravers and
bookbinders, proposing tho longest
step yet taken by labor organizations
to end the situation caused by the
high- cost of white paper.
Would Invoke Criminal I.nrr.
To tho extent that it advocates
Immediate Federal grand Jury" In
quiries In the larger cities with the
idea of imposing penitentiary sent
ences upon those responsible for the
white paper fnmlnlne, the resolution
resembles In principle the stand taken
by Max Hayes, leader of tho "Reds"
In the convention, upon the resolu
tion proposing a Federal Investiga
tion of the high cost of living.
It declares In effect that there has
been enough Investigating and thaT
the tlmo has como for Invoking the
That principle was repudiated
When the federation adopted last
week the proposal for a Federal high
cost of living commission. The same
principle will probably bo accepted
by the adoption of the white paper
The resolution declares that the
facts obtained b the Federal Trades
Commission show that the price of
news print paper has advanced be
yond all reason, considering tho cost
of manufacture, "thereby Indicating
the existence nf an Illegal conspiracy
to control prices and to cxtnrt Illegiti
mate profits for Jobbers and manufac
turers." Call for Artlon.
It also points out that the lack of
criminal prosecutions has been duo to
tho fact that "newspaper publishers
and commercial pi Inters are reluctant
to volunteer evidence."
It Instructs the executive council
of the federation to take tho neces
sary steps "to obtuln action by tho
I ederal Trades Commission and the
Department of Justice."
A resolution Indorsed by the I It I
mils State Fcdcintlnn sees danger In
conditions In woirlng countries where
trades hitherto supplied by men are
being niled with underpaid women;
"unorganized nnd -voteless."
"We foresee at the close of the
war." says the resolution, "when men
return asking bnck their Jobs, grave
danger that these explnlted women
will be used to lower (ho wages of
men as well, permanently and every
where, thus causing the hard-won re
sults of previous years nf organiza
tion to be lost to the workers."
Tho federation also will be asked
to recotd Its opposition to, Govern

Sferr Totk Cnr Men Ilegln Fight.
With the arrival of W. B. Fitzger
ald, who led the New Tork street car
men In the fight for union recognition,
It is being noised among the delegates
that the opposition to Secretarv
Frank Morrison's ie-clectton la basid
upon the way the street railway
strike was handled in New York.
It appears to havo been the old
question as to what extent a trader
union shall stand alone, and when it
shall subject Itself to the dictation of
the whole Federation.
In the Now York car strike all the
talk of a general walkout of 700,000
workers came to naught because somo
of the unions refused to be bound by
the General Labor Conference. Tho
conference Is said to have been back
ed up In Ita general strike order by
Secretary Morrison, and Ills' opponents
to re-election are the men who believe
the federation has not the right to
compe.1 one affiliated body to abrogate
Its contracts with employers simply
to help another affiliated body win a
Strength In Bargains.
They claim that In tho ability of a
trades union to make a "collective
bargain" with an employer lies the
real strength of trades unionism, and
they hold against Secretary Morrison
tho charge that he permitted Hugh
Fraync, general organizer of the fed
eration In New York, to threaten to
abrogate all "collective bargains" be
tween New York unions and employ
ers merely because a "collective bar
gain" could not be mado on behalf of
tho car men."
Whllo It Is said that Morrison's op
ponents will not raise this Issue In the
open. It Is likely to be raised nnd
fought out when a resolution Is con
sldeied urging affiliated unions nijt to
enter into agreements with employers
that will bar them fioni a systematic
strike. This was Introduced by dele

"No girl should deal lightly with a
