isfied thnt Frnnre's plendinirs, with regard to war settlements,
would not be Ignored.
America cannot ami will not turn her hark upon France beratisc
of what France has done for America In two great crises. France
lent military and moral aid to America during the Revolutionary
War. Had It not l-en for 1-aFayette ami other heroic Frenchmen,
the victory of the American Colonics over the mother country,
England, would not have been so easy. Had it not been for the
bravery and sacrifice of France from the River Marne to the City
of Verdun, where that immortal slogan, "They shall not pass,"
was wined, German Imttlcships might today lie patrolling the
American Atlantic seaboard. It is for these two reasons, if for
no other, that the administration at Washington will hesitate to
make a separate peace with fb-rmany and once more jeopardize
the peace of the world. It may be that America will not enter
the League of Nations for a while, but President Harding is now
showing signs of willingness to enter into a moral agreement that
will finally precipitate a legnl agreement to guarantee the peace of
the world. Put the immediate problem at hand is to force fler
many t pay her war indemnity and to start a movement for dis
armament, and both rbe Secretary of State and the President are
showing the proper spirit toward these two momentous question.
The World Agricultural Society
A PRODUCT OF THE WAR
By Marshall E. Vaughn
The unwritten chapter in the history uf the World War dates
from the day of the Armistice on November 11, to June 29,
1919, the date on which the Treaty of Peace was signed. This
iinwritk'i chapter deals with the educational and welfare work
that was rarriisl on in the various camp renters, with the con
stantly shifting and changing personnel of soldiers. Three men
had been appointed as nliirntinnitl commissioners to represent thr'
United States under the auspices of the Y. M. C. A. I'r. Kenyon
I.. Puttetfield of Amherst, Massachusetts, lr. John Krskin of Co
lumbia University, and Ir. Fratik Spaulding, now head of the I'e
p:irt 'tunt of Education at Yale. Shortly after the Armistice the
ediu ationnl work whiih hail been laumhed by the Y. M. C. A. was
transferred V the army and with it more than three hundred men
in the educational set t ion of the Y. M. C. A. service. This new
army of eilmn'ors was known us the Army Educational "orp, and
liecame the advisors and the directors of the educational work,
while the executive and administrative powers were vested in the
regular army officers. The eduiatin:.'il work was divided into
three classes. The university or purely in .iilemir training was
under the direction of I'r. Frkire; all the vocational and prufes.
fic't nl work under the d.re. ti'Ti of Ir. liut'ei lield, and the ele
mentary m ho"! and i I.i--es for the illiterates urn!, r the super
vision of I'r. Spanieling. It l e. nine pretty generally known that
the ngricul'ural section of ti e army schools was the liveliest an I
the most interesting work in the A. 1". F. It was a rare opportu
nity for men intm st d in agriculture and country life problem,
to cond.ine courses ut .i r the leading agriculturists f American
with From h, Pelgium, and English farm study in their natural
state and tinder pr.n t al conditions. It was the grea'est op
portunity for practical demonstration and for the study of com
parative agriculture that these men ever had. Soldiers at'endel
the Ki t urea given by a number of presidents of agricultural col
leges and by a still larger number of deans of agricultural schools,
beside attending daily recitation presided over bv the graduate
of lending agricultural schools in this country. Interest in the
study of agriculture was promoted by fretpient visits to nearby
farms. Agricultural clubs were organized in every camp center,
and a central A. E. F. agricultural club was organized at lieaune,
France, where the A met n an University for soldiers was located.
The agt 'cultural work t Pi mine culminated in a greater interna
tional conference on agriculture with representatives from Eng
land, Wales, Canada, France, Pelgium and the United State.
This conference la-ted three days and the world aspect of agricul
ture was discussed. A a result of the interest manifested in th
A. E. V. agricultural club nnd the success of the international
conference on agriculture the first step were taken for the for
mation of a World Agricultural Society. A great many charter
members wi re enrolled among the soldiers and the Army Educa
tional Corpa. The World Agricultural Society is today an estab
lished fait. It is publishing a magazine, "World "Agriculture,"
nd the principle of the organization Is sound and the plan feasi
ble. "It is a fellowship of individuals Bin! organizations interest
ed in the world aspects of agriculture and country life. Its fun
damental aim is the promotion of a better understanding among
individuals and nations in matters connected with the production,
distribution nnd consumption of agricultural products. It pro
poses to gather and publish information regarding the process by
which agricultural commodities are grown, marketed and used,
believing that such knowledge is essential to the establishment of
just relationships between producers and consumers. It is in
terested in furthering all agencies designed to better the condi
tions of country life and hopes to furnish a forum whore agricul
tural policies may be considered and correlate." Societies have
already been organized In France, Itelgdum, England, Canada and
tho United States. Twenty countries have members In this so
ciety. These include Denmark, whose solution of the agricultural
problem has an economic lesson for the world; China, who is
grappling with famine; Japan, where our members are leathering;
Information as to the relation between the food a given section
consumes and that which it produces, and among other countries
who have problems peculiarly their own that should be of interest
to every producer in America. These organized societies all bound
together hy one international magazine is a long step in the right
direction and should get the support of every forward-lookin
