The president has mado a frank
appeal to the American people tn
return a democratic majority In both
brunches of congress nt the next
election. It was entirely proper for
him to do so, with a statement of
his reasons. This government la
bused on free discussion.
Nqual frankness, of course, Is
called for In considering the appeal.
As the president himself well says:
"Nil scruple of taste must In grim
times like thesf be allow. to stand
In the way of speaking the plain
truth." The Star vigorously dis
sents from Mr. Wilson's plea on be
half of the democratic party.-
The president does not charge the
republican party with lin k of pn

war. "The leaders of the minority

The American administration Is
the one conspicuous and complete
exception. Mr. Wilson was elected
president by the narrowest of mar
gins. A change of fewer than two
thousand votes In California would

the nation'a devotion and determina

that the one is eteulial to the other.
"Vote the democratic ticket" In or

Tho pcnp',0 are expected to Infer
that If they do not vote the demo

The effort In being made to make
tho people believe that if they vote
the republican ticket they are voting
against winning the war: that a re
publican Voto Is, In short, a disloyal
vote. It ia an atrocious and wholly
unwarranted Insult to every repub
lican In the t'ntted States. This is
not h party war. It Is slngnlirlv
national. Virtually all Americans
have poured their wealth, their la
bor or their blood freely into this
cause, wit never a thought of poli
ties, republicans or democrats. It
has mattered not In the least; It has
been, and Is. the uprising of a united
people for the attainment of a su
prome and essential purpose. As
It haa been with the people so It has
been with their official representa

have labored side by side faithfully,
devotedly and with one accord. The

What perverse Imp of fashion Is It
that has started the wearing of "war

What mischievous demon of bad

the Insignia that ahould be pre
aorved sacredly to the woman who
has given her man's life to her coun
try? The "war widow's veil" that's
what the girl themselves call It Is
now a familiar sight on Chicago's
streets. It "comes" mostly In dark
blues. Often, however, it Is crepe
black. Tl Is attached to the rear of
a tight little "widow bonnet" In the
most austere manner. It Is edged
with white crepe. Sometimes It car

Civilian clothes for men are being
designed along military lines. The

as closely to the regulation military
