I . i -the price of sugar and other things
I ' f' thal lcn 0,'ars Pcr huncfrcd iumP in tnF
M ' , price of sugar is scandalous, unprecedented,
H unjustifiable and criminal. But what are you
going to do about it? Of course, if the laws in rc
H lation to profiteering were being enforced, the sugar
H companies would be handled, just as thousands of
H other manufacturers, jobers and other dealers would
H be handled. But the prosecution of these offenders
H ' is up to A. Mitchell Palmer, Attorney General of the
H United States. And Mr. Palmer is a candidate for
H the presidency to succeed Woodrow Wilson in the
H coming election, and Mr. Palmer is not going to "start
H anything" with hthe big financial interests of the coun
H try until after the election is over, or at least until
H ' ' he is sure that there is no chance of him being the
H ; standard bearer of his party in the campaign. In
H ihe shelter of this protection, human selfishness and
H , greed, which is the predominating impulse in the
H , World today, both with the laborers and with the
H """"' capitalists shoots up and grasps an opportunity of
M 1 plucking a few additional millions from the pocket
1 books of the struggling masses. And while this is
H about as flagrant an exhibition of willful profiteering
H - as has come to publiciiotice in this country, it is in
H " line with the tendencies of the times and fails to
H shock the sensibilities of the people, who have come
H ' to expect anything and everything in the matter of
M Quixotic price conditions, except a decline. Should
any dealer become so demented as to contemplate
m reducing the price of any commodity of general cor
Hj I sumption, we advise him to do so with the greatest
M r. , caution, else he is likely to have the death of many
H ' 'people with weak hearts on his soul. But raising
M I .'prices is perfectly safe, as everyone is fully accus
al ,'tomed to it.
Seriously, where and how is this high price mania
H i going to end? Will the profiteers continue their ne-
H '( farious work until the peaceful, law-abiding people
M of the country will be goaded to acts of violence as a
measure of self-protection? It is a year and a half
H t since hostilities ceased in the great war, and yet we
H I find prices still steadily ranging upwards, with no re-
1 lief in sight and the common people of the country in
H , a worse predicament today than they were during
H - the panic of 1903-4. It is a war of self-preservation
H on the part of the mases of the people, and of ex-
m tortion and get-rich-quick on the part of those who
H have a '"cinche" of any kind. The mania for profit-
M eering is not confined to the heads of big corporations
M or the large manufacturers of the country, not by any
Hj means. It is shared equally by the farmer, the me-
M chanic, the live-stock man, the small town ferchattt
M and every one else, seemingly. The only question is,
Hj how much will the traffic bear? Local farmers who
Since it is useless and foolis" to sely upon the
conscientious scruples of individuals to guide them in
determining what shall constitute a fair profit or re
turn on their money, the law should step in and give
the people protection and make it possible for work-i
ing men with families to live in this country. And if j
we have men in office who fail or refuse to give the I
protection they should in this matter of high prices
they should be turned out and men elected to office '
had large stacks of hay, and were able to hold it un
til the "pinch" period which is just passing, have
reaped neat fortunes from the commodity at $30 per
ton, and at that have been none too particular about
the kind of stuff that has gone into it, so long as it
is not too apparent, and increases the net weight and
cash returns, according to the statements of some of
They tell us that the trouble with the world is that
we haven't enough rcliyion; but we fail to sec any
difference in the dealings of the religious man and
those of the man who makes no such pretentions.
With each it is merely a question of keeping within
the law, and at the same time getting as much the
better of the other fellow as possible. There seems
to be something fundamentally wrong with our sys
tem of doing things. The conditions as they maintain
in the world today seem to be carrying us back to
the old Mosaic law of "an eye for an eye, and a tooth
for a tooth;" even back to the instinctive selfishness
exhibited by the brute creation, and away from the
"golden rule" which Christ taught.
HELP THE SOLDIER BOYS
IN the midst of all the grumbling and it must be
admitted there is a great deal of dissatisfaction
among those who served us in the war and who
feel they have not received what they believe to be
a square deal the government has for every soldier
..ill r It .1 .1
in the land a message or importance dealing witn tne
question of insurance. If you care to inquire, any
insurance man will tell you the government insurance
plan offers unusual advantages to the former soldier,
and at rates far below those obtainable from any
We would like to tell the former soldiers this
story of the government's insurance plans, but it is
impossible in these columns. We must publish our
local news, and we haven't space to devote to this
government problem. The officials of the War Risk
Insurance Bureau in Washington realize this, and they
want to reach the soldiers with their story by adver
tising in the newspapers because they have found
this is the only way they can reach these men. They
admit they have failed to reach them by mail. The
men are scattered. The official records of names and
addresses are almost useless. The man who enlisted
in Texas and whose home town was in Alaska has re-'
turned from the war, been discharged in New York
and gone into business in Thomas, Oklahoma. The
army has lost track of him, and his name is legion.
He runs into the hundreds of thousands. 'If these j
thousands of men knew what the government wanted
to say about insurance they would gladly listen. But
they don't. And they will never know unless the j
government advertises in the newspapers.'
Hundreds of thousands of dollars arc being spent
in a clerical attempt to solve this problem, but it is
as far away from solution as ever. The head of the
War Risk Insurance Bureau has nearly a hundred pri
vate secretaries at work, and a regular army of clerks.
The tremendous cost could be cut materially if our
Congressmen and Senators would grant an appropria
tion for government advertising, but they are not
used to this sort of thing and they do not act. i
It would be a good thing if all the mothers of the
former soldiers and all the wives set to work to make '
them act, if they wrote to their senators and cong-
ressmen demanding the appropriation asked for by I
the War Risk Insurance Bureau. I
This is just another phase of government adver
tising. Every man, woman and child in the nation
will benefit when the government begins to adver
tise, but the legislators will not make appropriations
until there is a distinct public demand for government j
advertising. If you want anything in these days it is
necessary to go after it. Perhaps our readers will
join with other citizens in helping to bring about a
little action. , j
SUGAR is having a hard time keeping the pub
lic disposition sweet and overalls in keeping our
' naked anger clothed.

American Library Association In
augurates Nation-wide "Books
for Everybody!" Movement.

by Teaching American Ideals
Tlio spirit of unrest that hns heen
sweeping the country Indicates thai
the foreign born, who hnve flocked to
the United States from every corner of
the gloho have not been given the
proper help and encouragement, In the
opinion of the 4,000 librarians who
make up the American Library Associ
ation and who arc now enlisted In n
"Hooks for Everybody" movement.
The effort Is a concerted movement
to carry out the Enlarged Program
which the association has adopted.
There are approximately fifteen mil
lions of foreign born In the United
.States and of this number six millions
do not read or speak the English Ian
guugu. One phase of the Enlarged
Program will be to bring the publisher
and translator together with the view
of furnishing the proper books In suf
ficient numbers to carry the message
of American Idcnlt and traditions to
this vast army of uninformed pco
pie. They have been largely dependent
upon tlie foreign press for their writ
ten niessnges. Many men who live
with their fingers on the pulse of cur
rent events aro firmly convinced that
a sound foundation In Americanism
can be easily built among the foreign
born If the proper literature Is placed
within their reach in a language they
No Drive to Be Held.
In order to carry out the Enlarged
Program two million dollars will be
required. This money will not be
'sought through the medium of a cam
paign or an Intensive drive, but will
ho obtained tlirough the Individual ef
forts of the librarians, library trustees
and friends of libraries. Tho Amer
ican Library Association will bend
every effort to bring about tho na-tlon-wido
adoption of each of the
cardinal points In tho Program, which
Includes the extension of the county li
brary sytem and the establishment of
more Industrial and business libraries.
