We have heird about
* * ,4
A JUST peace,
** *
And a VICTORIOUS peace,
* * *
A peace of VENGEANCE,
A peace WITHOUT victory
* * *
And a peace
We are growing accustomed
To the endless VARIETY
And now Senator Gore
Has sprung a new one,
* * *
Which will be declared
If the wrangle over terms
Develop a DEADLOCK.
You see it would never do
For US to be at war
With Germany
After England and France
Are at peace with her,
For our LATE allies
And FUTURE trade-rivals
Would GRAB the German trade
And thus the REAL
Advantages of war
Would be lost
To the people who count
* * *
In that UNIMPORTANT senate!
I don't know just what
This "legal peace" is;
But I suppose it's better
Than an ILLEGAL one.
Though I never could see
Were any less NASTY
Than ILLEGAL wars.
* * *
Or that legal ROBBERIES
Stole any less MONEY
* * *
Than the OTHER kind;
In fact they even seem
To get away with MIORE
But most any kind of peace
Looks good to me
If it is QUICK
And breaks the BLOCKADE
And gives the women and babies
A chance to EAT again,
Even if it leaves
The question of POLITICS
To be settled
Sometime next CENTURY
Whenever those politicians
GET AROUND to them.
* * *
And since
The senator says so clearly
That what we are AFTER
* * *
Is just to facilitate
* * *
SJust SIMPLE like that
SNever bothering
With comlplicatledl qlestions
Why can't we steal a march
And have tlhait legal peace
Right away!
It can't be any WORSE
Than SOME of ithe peaces

and Trotsky knew they could be re
lied upon to continue to do so. Once
the fight within the fight was held
up temporarily to give the "partisan"
regiments a chance to regain a hard
battle against Generui Krasnoff, after!
eome conscripted troops had failed
to hold their line. In one instance
Trotsky went with a military force
to tame some "partisan" regiments
and arrest their commanders. The
commlnanders came to parley with
Trotsky, but field guns were pointed
at Trotsky's car during the parley.
By diplomacy and cautious shuff
ling of forces Trotsky got the men
with guns into his power.
Discipline in New Army.
They say there are moire than a
million in the new conscripted forces.
There is discipline. There is some
return to the old custom of saluting
though it is not yet universal.
The officers are a mixture of three
elements. There is a great propor
tion from the old days of the Czar.
At the price of calling soldiers "com
rade," they can get back into the
military life with soldiers that obey
and won't shoot them. Then there is
a small mixture of the dare-devil
sort similar to the American I. W
W. agitators, who have just applied
their ingenuity to learning military
arts and then settle down into the
most official and un-I. W. W. type
of officer imaginable. Thirdly, there
is a big crop of young new officers
who are heralded as "sons of work
ing men and peasants, and guardians
of the rights of the proletariat." But
officers are officers.

sent from a newspaper office to cover
a rush assignment by air. According
to the story in the Chicago Post, "the
flying reporter" rose from Grant

taxi. He expected to be set down in
front of the Joliet penitentiary within
a half hour-in order to be present
at the Rev. Elmer L. Williams hur
riedly arranged interview with Eu
gene Hartnett, concerning the Earl
Dear case. Dr. Williams left Chicago
suddenly by train and an aircraft of
fered the only means for getting a
reporter to Joliet in time for the in

Hartnett to admit that it was he who
killed Rudolph Wolfe and not Earl
Dear, who was to hang at Chicago

less at the eleventh hour his erst
while pal made a confession to justify
another stay.

to whom the Jesuits came, members
of the state university faculty and
student body went Saturday to St.

The pageant will be staged July 30
on Montana field at the state univer

rection of Mrs. Margaret Ganssle,
who is conducting a course in pag

The pageant will consist of four epi
sodes, each depicting a phase of the
life of the Indian from the time be
fore white men came to this country
until the establishing of St. Mary's
mission at Stevensville in 1841. The
cast will number 200.

on his way to the interview in the

the interview between Dr. Williams
and Hartnett.
