The gallant deeds ot the heroes of
old stood out because such acts were
not then dally events. Bravery to
day Is a commonplace.
An Ontario aviator flew to an ene
my alrdome and, finding nobody
there to fight, proceeded to another
alrdome three miles further on,
twelve miles within the enemy terri
tory. He found seven boehe machines
with engines running. He swooped
and attacked from a height of about
than fifty feet, and when the first
machine rose to meet him he poured
in fifteen rounds and sent it to the
ground. The second got off the
ground and received thirty rounds be
fore it fell. Two machines then left
the ground and the Canadian started
upward, not to escape, but to have
more room. At 1,000 feet he attacked
one machine and sent it to the ground.
The second machine started for him;
he emptied all he had left into it and
returned to his station, being a little

his number; he then consolidated his
position and beat off two counter at

that the officers ot the company on

and he went over and took command
and beat oft another attack.
These arc a few instances of the
hazards men fearlessly undertake
daily in this war. They bring in
wounded" under fire, extinguish blazes
of camouflage over ammunition
dumps, fight on though wounded se
erely and stick to their ammunition
wagons after they are afire.
This is an era of dauntless bravery
and sacrifice. "
1UT1D LLOYD GEORGE
"He does not pause to think; he
acts. He has no fear. The bigger
the task, the better he likes it. The
higher the stakes, the more heroic
his play. He never fears to put his
fate to the touch, and will cheerfully
risk his all on a throw." With these
words does a biographer describe
David Lloyd George, premier of Great
Born and reared in a little Welsh
village between the mountains and
the sea, David Lloyd George from the
first stood out among his companions
as a born leader, one who was al
ways at the forefront ot events,
whether it was a revolt against the
catechism or' against the tyranny of
the parson who refused the dying
wish ot a Dissenter to be buried in
his child's grave. The whole charac
ter and make-up of this small but
mighty man is summed up in the one
As his biographer says, Lloyd
Georgo has the swiftest mind in poli
tics, a mind that "carries with it no.
impediments." He is the improvisor
ot politics, laying his political plans
as he runs, thinking best on his feet,
never preparing a speech until the
crisis is upon him. Notwithstanding
his impulslvo nature, he is at bottom
the most subtle, the most resolute
and the most willful force In modern
politics, with passion that is always
But the big thing that stands out in
the life of rremicr Lloyd George is
the fact that he is always "doing
things." And these are always big
things. When it came to the matt.cr
ot improving the English docks, he
did not look in books for his Informa
tion but journeyed to Antwerp and
Hamburg to see for himself. Before
he brought In his Merchant Shipping
Bill, ho took a voyage to Spain and
learned about ships.
This, in a few words, Is the man
who rose with rockct-llke speed to
the position of premier ot the greatest
empire In the world. Unconscious
of the roads and fences ot his fore
fathers, recognizing only the living
present, this man among men guides
the destinies of Great Britain in the
struggle that means a continuance of
the splendid ,power and rule of the
Empire or its defeat at the hands of
Prussianisxn. May his audacity and
ability to act correctly not fall him
In this hour of trial.
TIIE VISION' OF YOUTH
In the present conflict of peoples,
there often seems Httlo to be thank
ful for. The world is torn up by its
rootsr-strong men have gone forth
to do battle and widows and orphans
are left to mourn their dead.
Yet there still remains one ot the
most beautiful things the world has
ever known the optimistic vision of
youth. All over the land, young men
and young women have risen up,
radiant in their strength and beauty,
eager to fight the battle of freedom.
From far and near they have come,
not to promise, not to prate of their
sentiments, but to do the thing which
will bring their beautiful visions to

THE OPEN COLUMN
Editor the Missourian: In the
queer upheaval which has followed
our entrance into war, more than one
theory of living has tumbled by the
wayside, to bo replaced by one more
efficient and worked out more scien
tifically. Now the old idea that home-made
candy should be preferred for chil

Snow, supervisor of household arts in
the Chicago schools, is the person
who has fired the bomb. She will be
saved if the candy is bought rather
than made in the home kitchen.
This seems to destroy pleasant
little pictures of home-life, in which
the entire family sniffs hungrily while
mother stirs an appetizing mixture of
butter and sugar and chocolate on
the stove. But hear what Miss Snow
"Children need a certain amount
of sweets and if they try to get them
at home by making their own candy,
they will use more sugar than they
would if they bought it." M. U.

death from hunger threatens the
greater part of the population of Fin

from the United States, asserts Dr.
Kaarlo Ignatius, Commissioner of the

threat to Finland is not privation or

Concerning Finland's needs and its
causes, "Dr. Ignatius said:
"In regard to food supply, Finland
is worse off than any of the European
states whose sufferings have been
brought before the American public.
For months past, our people have
been eating bread made out of flour
mixed with pine-bark and lichens, but
even with this expedient we cannot
hold out, as the flour reserve virtual
ly is exhausted, and even our hardy
population cannot eat unmixed bark.
"The sufferings endured in the
summer were terrible, and since I left
Finland in September they have be
come much worse. Nothing can save
us except the prompt release by the
American Government of the flour
which wo have already ordered and
paid for in the United States.
"All I want is the release of enough
flour to save us from death and
