Both political parties are waiting
for Pershing's word as to which par
ty he will affiliate himself with. No
intimation has yet been made as to
who are the likely candidates for next
year. Both parties have good presi
dential timber, but it seems both par
ties think Pershing is the man that is
necessary for their victory next fall.
Pershing is today honored by every
American as a great soldier. Should
he ally himself with one party and
seek the presidency, his popularity as
a soldier would at once wane. He may
be elected, and yet it is doubtful if
the American people would think
more of him as president than they
do today. But should be become a
candidate and be defeated most Amer
icans would soon forget him.
The General's work In France was
worthy of all that the United States
can bestow upon him. The people
must remember that the work of di
recting an army is decidedly different
from that of directing the affairs of
a nation. Looking into the past we
find most of our soldiers that became
president were either failures or medi
ocre. It is better to be remembeied as a
great general who made a few mis
takes than as a president who made

"OCR NATIONAL EXPENDITURES
The Federal Treasury faces a deficit
of three and one-half billions of dol
lars, according to Representative
Good, chairman of the appropriations
committee. The condition of the
Treasury is so alarming, says Good,
that "we may well face calmly the
conditions that already exist before
entering upon larger projects."
The blame for the colossal expendi
tures of the national government rests
entirely upon Congress. In the years
immediately preceding the war a Con
gress that piled up billion dollar ex
penditures was censured as inefficient
and wasteful. Today we have a ten
billion dollar Congress with a three
and a half billion dollar shortage and
the country is advised to face the sit
No doubt the war has been the cause
of a great increase in expenditures, but
even the war cannot be held respon
sible for a nine billion dollar increase.
One of the biggest expenses to the
country is the upkeep of the array and
navy. Yet today there is a faction in
Congress that would scrap the League
of Nations and shackle the country
with that militarism that has become
the most hated and despised system on
earth. Snch a course would cost the
country millions of dollars yearly in
taxes. The first of the large projects
that Congress should avoid is the pass
ing of the universal training bill and
the expending of million of dollars for
But Congress can cut to the very
heart of the inefficiency and wasteful
ness of the government by providing
a budget system. A budget has been
demanded by the newspapers of the
country and by enlightened public
opinion for years. Every other large
nation has such a system. It is the
only sure cure for the evils of the
Pork Barrel and the only means of
correctly estimating the expenditures
of the country.

Columbia has an usually good Com
mercial Club. It is a live organization
with a live secretary. The club is al
ways doing something and preparing
to do something else.
The chief purpose of the club
is to make Columbia the best place in
the world to live. It is also making
the city a good place to spend your
money in. as well as a place for others
to spend their money.
The East is now seething with un
rest and dissatisfaction.! Poor men,
salaried men and professional men are
looking for a place where they can
start over again.
The advice has been given to Kan
sas City to take advantage of this un
rest and make their city so attractive
that these people from the East will
want to go there to lire.
Columbia too, should bid for this
new immigration. Columbia has many
attractions which a city the size of
Kansas City cannot offer.
This i3 just another opportunity for
the Commercial Club to do something
big for Columbia. ,
