GREAT BASIC INDUSTRY DEMANDS
CONSIDERATION FAIRLY DUE IT
SECURITY and prosperity of the livestock farfestry are a
national, not a sectional issne. Every state in the onion
raises cattle, hogs, and steep for food purposes, and the
wool industry is almost as widely distributed. We often
think of the livestock industry si distinctly western, but
while that is true of the "open range" (now fast disappear
ing) it is not true of other phases. Some of the oldest
farming states are among the greatest producers of finished
meat nmui arid wool.
The present convention in El Paso is nationally repre
sentative of the livestock industry as a whole. Yet it be
trays the very lack of cohesion and intensive organization
that has been responsible for much of the difficulty the
industry faces today. And one of the first and meet im
portant purposes of this convention is to perfect the na
tional organisation and make it so powerful that its spokes
men at Washington must command the attention and
respect doe them by reason of the basic importance of the
livestock industry in American economy.
Wide differences of opinion prevail as to the nature- of
the difficulties now harassing the industry, and even wider
differences as to the best remedies to apply. The present
convention will have up for discussion all the wider phases
of the livestock situation, considered not only nationally
but internationally. Production, finance, transport, mar
keting, all win be thoroughly considered. Some win blow
hot and some cold, but out of the multitude of counsel
there will come wisdom.
Some producers regard the packers
others regard them as jointly interested. Some producers
are Hostile to tne banks and to the federal banking system,
having felt what they deem undne pressure; others bring
praise for what they deem effectual cooperation. The great
question of cost of production will be thrashed out, and with
it, the question of a fair price.
The ramifications of the livestock
many; they touch on land and forest
state governments; railroad rates and
farming fa numerous ways as affecting
price ot cattle teed even the pnce of
seed is of vital interest to the stockman, as is the condi
tion of the ittgar industry, beet and cane. Cost of land and
housing, handling of stock at terminals, regulation of
slaughter houses and pickeries, pure food laws, butter sub
stitutes, clothing fabrics, leather products, fertilixer, de--elopment
of underground water supplies, the cost of
fencing, shortage of competent labor one begins to realize
that the livestock industry does not stand alone, bnt that
it has a direct interest in .many other industries and in
many phases of governmental policy and practice.
Not the least of the big problems coming up for thorough
discussion at the El Paso convention is that of foreign com
petftion. When it is realised that Argentina alone has
more cattle than the United States, that cattk-in Argentina
number two to one of the population while in the United
States there are only three head of cattle to four of the
population; when it is realized that the cost of production
in Argentina is far below that in the United States, and
that shipping conditions are such that Soutb American beef
can undersell United States beef in United States markets,
it is not hard to comprehend why the cattlemen of the
United States are asking for a compensatory tariff on
dressed carcasses as well as on live animals.
There win be some who win contend that the consumer j
is entitled to buy in the cheapest market the world affords.
This ia an old story, and such "reasoning" has been proved
fallacious over and over, but it continues to be brought for
ward. If the answer to it is the ruination of any basic
American industry, as it is certain to be in tirae, this coon-1
try is the loser. It is to our national advantage to make'

the general narrative, relates experiences
oa the Meuse-Arconae battle front.
It Is sussested that readers clip these
articles each day and paste them in scrap
bosks; they wfll not be reprinted and back
nambers cannot be supplied. '
NOVEMBER, 1, 1918, the Germans
east of Verdun were still within
5 miles of the city on the line
which had not chaneed in more than
two years despite the constant pres
sure of the French; this point was the
western pivot of the Saint Mihid
movement and had not changed lo
cation then or since. On the east
side of the Meuse. north and north
west of Verdun, the German lines were
within 9 miles of the city. Between
September 26. and October 22 French
and American troops holding that see
tor east of the Mease and north of
Verdun, had made repeated attacks
and had been repulsed again and
again, but during the month the
Americans had succeeded in doing
what the French had been unable to
do, and had pushed the Germans back
4 to 5 miles and held them.
The main American attack all this
time since September 2d had been pro
ceeding in a northwesterly and north
erly direction down the Meuse, west of
the river. Between September 28 and
November 1, the American First army
on a narrow front, as has already been
described, had pushed the Germans
back a distance varying; from 6 to 12
miles at a cost of 100,000 men in battle
casualties; the area thus recovered is
mighty small on a map of France, but
the fearful cost of the recovery suf
ficiently indicates the character of the
fighting and the quality of the enemyV
resistance. Some parts of the line had
swayed back and forth, places had
been taken and retaken several times.
The French on the west of the Ameri
can First army had had great difficulty
gaining ground or holding what they
gainedT and the French line was re
peatedly hurled bade, the recession in
some parts of the line adjacent to the
American sector having been as much
aa 3 to S miles.
These facts were known to very few,
outside of the higher commanders. I
foHowed the French and American
eonununiqnes closely and traced the
lines on my map' each day, and discov
ered for myself what the communiques
never mentioned: the repeated reces
sions and losses of ground; and I had
access to the casualty reports. Mean
while the secretary of war at Wash
ington and the other authorities and
the press in America were creating an
utterly false impression of the opera
tions on the Heuse-Argonne front, that
misled the American public and did
deep injustice to the American armies I

Germans in full retreat. That was far '
from she truth; so far it had not been '
a rear guard action for the Germans on
this front, but a continuous frontal
battle on line it had been difficult to
bodge with all the American offensive,
power. It is grossly unjust to the '
American army to underrate the Ger
man resistance in this sector. The
casualties speak for themselves.
The advance of the Americans down
the west bank of the Meuse, coupled
with the failure of the divisions on the ,
east bank of the Meuse to advance ;
with them, had left the long flask of
the advancing Americans on the west
bank uncovered and exposed not only I
to artinerv fire but to rifle and ma- !

German lines east of Verdun; aad 15

p-off lme for the renewed attack
fining November 1. We did not
know or even suspect it then, but this
attack waso be pressed through with
such vigor aa to end the war 11 days
The battle from .November 1 on
would be els nod in a military sense as
a rear guard action on the part of the
Germans, but the fact remains that
they had determined to fight to the
death alonr this line with the beet
divisions they had, withdrawing them
from in front of the French and British
farther west, as it was vital to the
Germans, if they were to save any of
their armies in France, that they re
tard the American advance at this
key-point as long as possible.
The entire battle on to the end was
thus fought with desperation and reek-
was sacruiee unsurpassed auring me
war, and the American exploits from
start to finish were of a brilliance
equal to anything the war had dis
played on any front or in any army.
Owing to the official suppression of the
tacts, uie American runt army never
received anything like the credit that
was due ft for the splendid work it
did against the most powerful resis
tance the best veteran divisions of the
German army could make against it.
The American casualty lists were still
coming in and being published in
America three and four months later,
and a part of the truth finally pene
trated the comprehension of the Ameri
can people, but it remains for the
future historian to picture the battle as
it was, in all its fury, desperation, and
brilliant devotion to duty on both
sides, be it said, for none would be

the Germans as fighters, game to the

He held the sheet over the line with

that he might fasten it on the line.
But. lo and behold! No clothespins!
"Nune Jane must have forgotten

"Oh. no! you needn't trouble. You

bunny, turning around. "If you mean

"I mean your EARS!" cried the
voice. Then, turning around. Uncle
Wiggiiy saw a big. black bug, bigger,
even, than he. himself. And the bug.
standing on his hind legs, had big

"Who are your" asked Uncle Wig

answer, "and I came, to pinch your

started for the bunny.
"Wait a minute! Hold on! Will

"Just hold this sheet on the line

bunny. "Hold the sheet on the line."
"Yes. ril do that,' agreed the bug.
The bunny put tbe half fro sen, wet

stood up on his hind legs.
