Perhaps the number of men now
employed, might be decreased. If
such should be the case, the labor
would be absorbed la other indus
trial channels. With Columbia coun
ty figuring on a continuance ot their
road program, there will be work for
several hundred men. During the
past year, all road districts were
seriously handicapped by a lack ot
labor and the best results could not
be accomplished. The state highway
coiutnicsion also hrts a lan for much
road work during the coming year
and hundreds of men will be needed,
so those who do not find work in the
shipyards, can easily obtain employ
ment on the roads.
Another factor anould be taken In
to consideration. On account of the
call tor soldiers, n majority of the
farms could not secure needed help.
Men were called from the fields end
dairies to the army. When they come
back, they will return to those pur
suits which they left. There Is room
for all and will be work tor all.
There is no reason to be alarmed,
tut on the other hand, there is every
reason to feel encouraged, for war
time prosperity will give way to
peace-time prosperity. Matters will
be established on a normal basis, !

The council Is now wrangling ovei
mention of their being the question of allowing a five-foot
walkway on the lot recently leased to
the creamery, so there can be access
to the waterfront. It access to the
waterfront Is necessary, the council
should have thought of this before
leasing the only piece of property
the city owns which is at or near the
ton destruction of property, bombing
of Red Cros3 hospitals and every
other outrage which can be thought
of? They are sorry, but for what?
Because they v.-ere defeated, for
there is no
sorry or the thousands of crimes
committed. Never a word has been
spoken or printed by the German
people which would show them not
to be in perfect accord with the bar
barous methods of the war time
This being the case, upon what
ground can we base an opinion that
the German people are not now un
der instructions of their war lords,
those who caused the death of ten
millions of people, world-wide suf
fering and indescribable horrors.
The American people should not
be hoodwinked. The German plea
for mercy is only a part of the Ger
man propaganda which will soou
flood this country, flood it even more
than In pre-war tines.
From now on, the pro-hun in
America will be shedding tears ana
enlisting sympathy and help for a
democratic Germany, a contrite Ger
many, but the people of the United
States will not be fooled, the peace
terms will be carried out by those
who know the Germans and know
whp.t tratment is best for them.
The people have a right to be indig
nant at both the phone company
and the postmaster general.

proud. The county's quota on the Charter No. 10992
