Ceroun reliance linn comn to bo placed In mero
organization. I'coplo havo come to rely on
organization for benvtllB that only Individual
effort can procure. Hot your mind Btralfiht on
that early In this now year. Your future hup
plnc.vi and pronperlty the happliiens and pro
portly of the world depends on that.
ThU In u Hplundld occnnlon for tho American
union man to have an executlvo nertslnn with
hlmnolf, touching not iilono hlit opportunities,
but also hla olillciitlonn. Thero h an Impre.n
Bton abroad In tho land that American socloty Is
oror organized. Whnthor or not It l doponds
on thn viewpoint 'of thoso hnldlnft membership
In tho organizations.
Organization la a Mplomtld thing, for the pur
potio of raising tho standards of character, tho
nrtlntry of the members, and broadening tho
community of Interent. Hut organization Is a
deadly thing If It seeks to thwart thn Immutablo
laws of nature
Life does not exist as an organization. It! Is
Individual. Ko Its death. And every major
problem of life ylulds only to Individual effort
and application. Civilization Ii.ih advanced,
from tho fimt day nf rectirdud history, in ohmll
.unco to Uio commands of Individual effort. Op
portunity has never responded to mass activity;
It has never failed to open wldo Its arms to every
RHsault of Individual enterprise driven on by
Industry, thrift and frugality.
And In every Instance, from time's first re
corded event to tho present moment, each op
portunity embraced In such manner has created
other opportunities for other men, The wi'mIkih
wilderness afforded meager opportunity for the
pioneer; and niich opportunity nr did exist was
fraught with hardships and suifwrlng. Hut
tills opportunity did exist for nil citizens of the
republic. The few who dared embrace It,
whether railroad builders, miners, or agricul
turists, opened an empire. They prospered, of
course. They and their decendants. In many
Instances, aro our woulihy cltutens today. Hut
llie sturdy old pioneer stock, In accepting those
early opportunities, created unnumbered oppor
tunities for wc men nnd woman of today.
Tho man or woman who relleti on an orgnnl-'
zatlon to secure his or her full dostinty Is Hln
nlng before Almlght Cod. The organization that
iceku to hold Its adherens to a deal level of In
ferlprlty; that In pniPtli'c shackles the divine
flro of lntelectual superiority; that In practice
does not permit excellence to earn Its Just ro
ward, but payH a honu to lnoffluloney and
Blothfulness, Is doomed, It may prosper and
thrlvo for a time, it' simply annual endure.
Ours Is a nation of Individuality. Here tho
citizen Is king In his own right. 11 a can, prop
erly. Bocure no additional rights by organisa
tion. Oportunlty Is his for tho more acceptance.
Kalvatlon Is his for tho mere acceptance.
Hucccss Is his only through personal effort.
Organization cannot build him a home, sup
ply him a wlfo, give him posterity or discharge
his duties as a citizen.
You Bland at this moment nn American free
man, icgnrdless of your avocation, the ctiu.il In
ail these respects of tho greatest that ever
walked tho earth. If you do u necrsiary work
and excel to the full of your nbttlty, then you

What man would willingly Irmlo such a heri

If wn could have one wish renll.ed twlay,

When the treaty of poare was laid before
llm United Hlalnn senate July 10, tho nountry
was advised that the adherence of this country
was a condition precedent to the establishment
of pence. That meant wo must endorse tho
Aiirk nf Ibe Versailles eonfrenee, covenant and
all, before tho war could be officially ended.
When,-on November 19, thn sonata rejected
the treaty without reservations Amrlninlslng II,
and the president rtjseted II with eunh reser
vation, wo were lolil Unit we had mnd peace
ImpOHolhlo; that It would not be possible for
ibe oilier countries signatory to Hie pact to
enforce Its terms. And when the Herman dele
gation refii'ed to sign thn protocol at this
time, gentlemen on both sides of the water
declared that thn senate hail revived tho lr
iiimii ilt It nml that Ibe war mint bu fought
Tho covenanters of both Ilnglnnd nnd
Fnriro were downcast; they could not under
stand how the president's signature could ho
dishonored; Ihey trembled before the possibili
ties of America changing her decision.
This utis temporary.
Ift to themselves, nnd at last reconciled to
tho fact, tho purlins directly Interested In tho
matter Knglnnd, Krnnre and flermany begun
to discuss their troubles free from the Inter
ference of an otitsldii parly with a hobby. They
made progtrs. Tho thing that wits utterly Im
possible December 1, Is nn accomplished fact
January 1. Tho (lermans havo signed tho pro
tocol, nnd the other nations, not only left free
lo work out their own nulvntlon hut forced by
the exIgrnrlOH of lha enso to do so, find It pos
sible to ngren that thn peace treaty shall be
come effectlvo January 8.
There Is n wonderful lesson here for all con
cerned, It Is that those directly affected by a
nuiirrcl aro brvit utile to determine the settlo
mont. Tim rule Is not new. To men of practical
affairs It linn long been known.
There Is not (he slightest doubt In the mind
of any practical man of affairs but that thn
peace treaty would havo been signed and pre
war conditions re-esliibllshod by March 1, 1919,
had the nations directly affected been loft frco
to follow their natural bent.
It Is equally true, too, that penco would havo
been officially declared and tho covornnt prob
ably accepted, by tho middle of the Hummer, had
the cnmpleto work nf the conference beon ac
cepted by the president on his roturn to France
In March, For the treaty wan ready for the
(lermans nt that time, Its very provision unani
mously ngreed to by tho representatives of all
nations, Including tho United .Hlntcs. The cove
nant of tho league was then n separate docu
ment Hut the determination of the prosldcnt was
to force something down the throat of the sen
nto. And In thnt determination Is rooted all the
delay In the re-establishment of peace.
What Knglnnd and Franco nnd (lormany havo
discovered Is that It Is possible for them to work
together better by ourselves than under tho
tutelage of an outsider. Nor Is this strange
They aro neighbors. They are, after all, kindred
III many things to which the outsider Is a rank
Htranger. Fconomlcally and politically, they
arn mora closely nnd naturally allied, than
either enn possibly bo to the outsider.
Anil no mutter what too outsider might wish,
the things nil nro striving for, peucn nnd good
will, Is utterly outside of (he question until a
perfect neighborly understanding exists between
the three of them.
Thn deninnd for tho ncccplaneo of tho cove
nant by tho United States Is diminishing In Lon
don nnd l'arls and Horllu. Hecauso It Is ap
parent to tho stnlesmnn of all these capitals
that If the United States does glvo Its nproval,
It will bo on terms that wll safeguard tho In
terests or the United Ktalei In Us traditional
And that Is what tho statesmen of neither
of them desired.
As tho year 1920 dawns thero Is In most of
the capitals of the world general recognition
that tho covenant Is not to be. And thero Is a
cheerful acquiescence that suggests n conviction
nloinst as general that this, nfter all, H best.
Why should Washington aluno hesitate? Thn
reason Is clear. It is nut because of statecraft,
but because of politics. All this talk of coin
promising IMues that should bn beyond com
promise; that should never have been created
In the first place If they wero appropriate sub
jects for compromise springs from nn unwill
ingness to let this Issiu go Into the campaign.
Tho light of reason Is clear nnd Illuminating

tion. Under that resolution this country bo

Mr. Lloyd George's new proposal for Irish
home rule is ns liberal nnd broad as It could bo
made. Tho Independence of Ireland Is Impos
sible. It Is scarcely for Americans, remembering
thn civil war, to object to the Hrltlsh and North
of Ireland pisslon for the union of Ireland with
tho United Kingdom. It may be doubted If tho
mnjorlty of tho Irish people oven outside of tho
northern counties desire separation. Tho ten

cold to tho Sinn Fein "republic." New York
It was tho rally of this "foreign" element,
never very strongly nml unphyphenatedly
American, that gave Herger the election; and
tho lesson of the return of this unrepentant

him, Is that you cannot set up u non-Kngllsh-spenktng
group In this country without the In
evitable result of having largo numbers think
In the terms of tho country of their origin nnd
not In those In the country of their adoption.
