Bread and Its Makers.
A while ugo tho Commissioner of

rush to Mr. If Aiim.AN'R flattering no

"The suggestloii by Mr. Hartioan Is
Impractical, aa the average housewife
would never, under any circumstances,
admit that her loaf was not better than

fuel and has no overhead expanses, una
Is bound to come to the conclusion that
Iiome baking In her opinion, at least
In. after all, the more economical way.
Mr. Hartman no doubt means welt, but
his plan of 'showing tho ladles' would

Tlie successful party did not appeal

merely to their feminine aversion to

war" was manufactured for Ihelr espe
cial benefit, and Willi the twin slogan
"He protected me and mine" was chanted
by the women voters throughout the

that Wilsoo had kept the country out
of war, they refused even to consider

what democratic communities can do
when the supreme hour comes. But
j vice, from which militarism In the
' Prussian sense must be carefully dis
tliiRiil-hed, there are several practical
' problems to be discussed.
j Kirst. Is the scheme of voluntary
trulnlng really national, adequate to

Pn0uKh to carry the nation through a
war with the minimum expenditure of
men and money? Undoubtedly the

T,mt t fa h- dmy Qf eyery c,t,Mn
make hlinself edlclent Is an Idea strongly
held by on Increasing number. But
how Is this efficiency to be acquired?
The application of compulsory mili
tary service upon all able bodied men
is something that only supreme neces
sity would make popular, as It did
during the civil war, and until that
j supreme necessity comes the question
. of compulsory service will ho shirked
by wavering and tentative politicians.

the American spirit as a republican
and democratic spirit. To ask all cltl-

that some system of national service
would be for the good of the country,
