The Compensating Pendulum.
tine of the best friends the allies have made in this
?ar is a German military victory. It it now proven
almost with mathematical certainty that s German
military victory winds np in an abysmal, blasting Ger
man diplomatic defeat?the sort of thing that has re
cently be-en illustrated at Brest-Litovsk.
The Ormans have been so pitifully anxious to
"cash in" on the might of their sword that the world
has locked on and marveled at such naive brainless-'
new. Their armies have won a monotonous train of
successe?. Both the soldiers and the civilian population
of Germany rmtst be sunk in the depths of boredom
Mr the victories that come with such regularity! In
'act, t''*ry vn-.-st be beginning to fear, them now as the
?.recursor of bad news?for it has never failed to pass
?bat a Gernvin mili:ary triumph ends in a frightful
"bone" play whe_ the Kaiser and his ring essay the
"Ol'-w-throttr-h" in that larger field of international
?ratto ?here nation? fence with their wits instead
ef with their shrapnel.
The coefficient of German blundering?the ratio
existing between victory in on* phase of the war and
failure in the other?would be amusing if it could be
expressed mathematically. To gain the right to drown
men, t?-omen and children on the high seas without
any res'rrimt of law, morals, or human feeling, Ger
many was willing to draw the United States into the
war. How would you express thst sort of thing
algebraically? Count Czernin was winding the Bolshe
viki around his finger-joints when the Kaiser's agents
executed their celebrated squeeze play by flaunting
Article 2 of the peace agreement in their faces?a de
mand on Russia for the Baltic provinces and a few
other odds and ends of territory lying around loose.
So the Russians broke up the party and went home.
Put that thing in calculus or physics and you have
more unknown quantities than the most intricate
equation could untangle.
The steady swing of this politico-military pendulum
must he about as devitalizing to German nerves as the
unending ticks of the watch were to the murderer in
Toe's short story clinic. Every victory is paid for at
? usurious rate of interest in the field of diplomacy.
When the flags flrtter from the housetops along Unter
?'en Linden in celebration of the latest coup of Teuton
arm? the bar of black in them must be growing larger
and tarier to the a-tigmatic Teuton eye?the orb
which has been made to see things at all manner of
angles of distortion at the bidding of the ruling military
fliquc. .
Military \ictories represent the same measure of
progress towards a "German peace" as a treadmill does
to its victim. While the United States is preparing,
let the treadmift turn without hindrance. When we
pre ready, the allied nations will relieve Germany df
much of the deadly boredom of victory by force of
arms?and the allies possess sufficient political, moral
and rlinlomatic lialla-t to make their victories count for
something.
"?sood Morning, Billy!"
"Billy" Sunday greeted the people of Washing
ton yesterday at the Tabernacle in the Union Sta
tion Plaza. l'or the eight weeks he will deliver
twn addresses each day, except on Monday, which is
Billy Sunday's day of rest. 1
The Washington Herald believes in "Billy" Sun
day? whole-heartedly and without reserve, and for that
reason it welcomes him to the Capital of the Nation.
For another and better reason he is welcomed. He
is a force for good?a man who inspires men and
???omen to better living, toward higher ideals?a man
who in spreading the gospel of brotherly love shocks
only those who do not know its meaning.
If yen dislike "Billy" Sunday there must be a
reason. It is up to you now to analyze your feelings
toward bit--to sift the truth from the untruths told
about him, to Bet the proper perspective on a man
who is serving humanity. You must be fair to yotir
W??Mb being fair to this spectacular evangelist who
is accustT.ied to doing things his own way. You
may n"t approve of his methods?but you ought to
look bevr;?.-! :\,t to the ultimate good he actually ac
ciirrrpli-'-is. ''^i*_H
We 'k---ow the people of Washington will give to
Mr. Sunday a sympathetic hearing, and because they
will do thi? much lasting good will be accomplished
and the devil will be the only mourner.
Boost the Amendment!
We say to President Wilson that his crusade for
world-wide democracy would fail.
To Secretaries Baker'and Daniels that th? men of
the army and navy would lack inspiration and determi
nation.
To Secretary McAdoo that his efforts to sell bil
lions tno-e of bonds would be futile.
To Congress that onr war with German autocracy
would he at a standstill?
Without the full indorsement and practical aid
of the women of America.
; Any vision of human liberty which excludes free
dom of women is indecently camouflaged Any war
pol cy which demands of women their all, and denies
them equal partnership is inconsistent, tyrannical and
vicious, anything but democratic. Our democracy
comes into the court of the Almighty with unclean
hands; the best part of our democracy is not free and

'Hie administration at Washington hesitates, neg
lects to use its full influence on Congress for the pas
sage of that equal suffrage amendment, which is set
for a v. te un January ?a It did not hesitate when
it war.tnl .?-. larati. ? [or a war which would make
widow? and childless m< thers of American women. It
did not hesitate when it wanted power to take the
husbands and ?one of American ?/omen. It did not
hesitate when it wanted authority to control the food,
fuel, house affairs of American women. It was mighty
thorough .md earnest for measures under which Amer
ican wom.n would fura.?., fighters, do the mourning,
sacrificing and saving, the eating of corn in?l<ad of
wheat. \rVhv shonid it be backward in the matter o|
r-wing A-rtrican wotr.cn a ?liane? te t_ fgq j_,_ e/itf^
in promoting and establishing national measures?
The administration has proclaimed that it believes
in equal rights. It ii a matter of human liberty. Let
the administration pull off its coat, and hew to the
mark, regardless of where the chips fall! Better be
right than play the game in accord with the rules of
politic?
Has Favorable Feature?.
The crux of the Russian matter, today, is that the
Bolsheviki thought they were dealing with Germany
and found themselves dealing with the German autoc
racy. That's all, and it was to have been expected.
Prussian militarism, naturally, demanded Poland,
Lithuania, Courland, etc., as "buffer" territory and,
naturally, was determined to hold and fortify Libau,
Riga and other ports as guarantee. Knowing itself
well, German autocracy isn't trusting, without security,
so simple and irresponsible an element as the Bolshe
viki, and the latter could not furnish the security with
out fatal risk of their own necks.
The break in the Brest-Litovsk negotiations ought
to have some effects favorable to the entente interests.
The Socialists of Germany can now see that autocracy's
talk about no annexations and no indemnities was all
fiosh. All Russia ought to be able to see that, if Russia
is to save vast parts of her territory, Russia must
fight, or at least, put up such a bluff st it that Germany
cannot strip the Eastern front of her warriors. And
pacifists all over the world must admit that, if Russia
cannot make a separate peace, her attempts at general
peace are mere vaudeville.
The Brest-Litovsk affair, in its present status, is a
good thing, in that it once again, more clearly than
ever, demonstrates the fact that the world's business is
strictly the extermination of German autocracy.
Helping the Suffering.
There are thousands of persons in Washington
suffering because of lack of fuel. No one knows how
long this condition will last. Must we continue as we
are?or will Mr. Weaver act and act quickly.
Big concerns have their bunkers filled with coal
because they were sufficiently thoughtful of their own
interests. The Herald believes that a survey of the
coal supply would show that there is an available
source, the diminishing of which would work no hard
ship on any one
The situation is serious. It is not alone discom
fort the people are facing, but in many cases poor
people are in danger of death. At such a time every
person should make it his personal business to see
how much of his coal supply he could spare until the
crisis is passed.
Mr. McLean, of the Washington Post, is doing
his level best to help, and his generosity and thought
fulness of others will not be soon forgotten. There are
others who could help and The Herald appeals to
them to remember the little children and the un
fortunate who are suffering.
Anyhow-, we've got two submarines that can collide,,
deep down, without any suspicions of Germans about it.
tome soo years B. C, Confucius said: "He who|
will not economize will have to agonize." Save for
war savings stamps.
Our naval man power is about six times what it
was when Germany proclaimed ruthless submarine
warfare. That proclamation surely woke up the world.
Certainly "bread and boots" are essentials of a cor
rect revolution. Anyhow, you couldn't expect patriotism
to keep warm, barefoot and on an empty stomach in a
Russian winter.
Investigation shows that our Ordnance and
Quartermaster departments contain some nice old
gentlemen who might do well at golf, or something
else not too exciting.
A Westerner has got up a new soft drink from
alfalfa. You boil the alfalfa in water, pound the water
with a club, drink what's left and then don't csre
whether your town is dry o- moi?t.
After all Connie Mack is the greateit ot the whole
liascball bunch. He has just sold a number of
players for thousands of dollars and nobody supposed
he had any that could be given aia?.
If your gas stove "back fires" and will not
burn, try closing or covering the air intake on the
front of the burner, but removing it when the
flame starts to burn yellow again.
.Senator Kenyon, of Iowa, has introduced a hill
reducing the pay of Senators ami Representatives
$?,500 a year. We mention it at this time so you'll
know about it. Don't forget it, for you'll never hear
of it again.
Dr. Bishop, Cleveland's health commissioner, warns
little br.ys not to spit on their hands when playing ball
:n 1918. And the first little hoy who aacftt a ball

doctor's personal attendance.
Ohio war board says a good meal can be made from

The Song of a Slacker.
'Twas on the Hudson's muddy bank
(Where early fa's the dew),
That in the eve I met a man,
Looking extremely blue,
And, as he sighed, and almost cried,
It was quite plain to see
That something was the matter, but
Whatever could it be?
"Come hither, hither, thou lonely man,
Why dost thou mourn thy lot?
Maybe, that like myself thou'rt broke?"
He answered: "I am not!"
"Hadst thou in contemplation then
A suicidal view?"
He answered, "What in thunder, pray,
Has that to do with you?"
"Maybe, you have been crossed in love,
And so would fain expire?"
He smiled. "The man who told you that
Was an egregious liar!
Your thirst for knowledge of my mood
Is certainly ill-bred ;
I've half a mind, my curious boy,
To punch your silly head I ,
To tell the truth, my prying youth,
If you can get a backer,
You may with safety bet your life
The cause is?I'm a 'Slacker'1
I do not see why I should fight,
Nor wish to be a hero ;
And, when I think of bloody war,
My spirits fall to zero!
My only object in this life
Has been, and will be, sonny,
To make?for I was educated thus??
A quantity of money !
But, look! There coming thr.>ugh the field
Is the recruiting*man I _
Goodbye! Look out, or he'll catch you I"
And off the coward ran.

The cry to Sociali?m I? a r?r on?
?impossible, or couree?but there ar? .
?cverai things advocated by lliem
which ure today at our doors, or In ?
our very mitist.
The activity of the general K"v-|
eminent thus ?tarted, it may be put
down, will ni ver be altered to the |
extent of coing hnck to tho old forma ?
of llvin.-?. We bade goodbye to these
in 1917?and during th. eomin?. yr?r I
will welcome more of these unusual '
thing? to our domain.
However much w? may Reclaim j
the Populista or the Socialists, or any ?
other of Iho minority partie? ?? the j
author.- of ?om? of these steps,
though, th? fact remains that a cum- J
hination of Democratic end Repub-j
lican forces put thrm through dur- j
Ing a I>emocratic administration. The '
honor will go to the latter party in J
largest measure, perhftp?, but eer-j
tainly much honor belon-s to th'?
TtcpuMi ans for their wholesome, un- j
?tinting work In the War CaSatreaat.
The great big principle of Social- ?
lam?the ono of community and gov- !
emmental ownership of all property? j
Is the bar to acceptance of Social
lam ?s a real power. That prevents]
the parly from prospering, and It'
will keep it from becoming a dom
inant r'-ty I? thl? country. The
principles that are worth while in
the 8ocinlt?tlc camp will be taken
over by one or the other of the dom
inating parties, just a? they hnve
been taken over, with modification?,
during the past few month?
Socialism, tempered with reason,
could prevail, perhaps. The fact that
other partie? temper ?II doctrine with
reason allows them to take the dom
j Inating poi.er that Socialism might
have if it* doctrine? ver? not ?o
radical.
The poaiiion of Socialists on the war
ha? not been such aa to make them
firm among patriots. The Socialistic
doctrines a? preached by aomc of the
"made in Germany" Socialists are
wholly out of sympathy with the
aplrlt of democracy. For that reason
th? advent of much Socialistic doc
trine in this country will be accom
panied, as it already haa been, with
a aererai weakening of .the Socialis
tic cause Itself. Meanwhile some of
the worthy principles go marching on,
in the hands of other parties.
The Populfat party waa born and
lived for a time as a Aery power. Hut
it dl?d ?ventually. never to rise again
with the old name. Hut many causea
which th? populist? espoused with all
ardor wer? taken up and enacted into ]
law by other parties. Such may be |
the fate of the Socialist?, although the |
one principle which Is fundamental ?
with th? number may be sufflcient to 1
use aa the nucleu? for a party that !
will alway? he In existence but never I
??verely threatening the existence of
either of the major partie?.
The first amendment to th? draft !
law, so it appears now?and it may be
th? only amendment made for ?ome
time?will be to make it possible for
all those who have attained the age
of 21 since June 6, 1917, to become sub
ject to the legislation.
Gen. Crowder has not consulted
more than casually with members of
the military affairs committee of
?ither House over the matter, but it
la known that no other ?uggestiona
are likely to come from him for some
time. If thia amendment can be at
tended to In th? not far distant fu
ture.
The suggestion that men over the
maximum of the late draft be In
eluded In tbe law haa always had the
opposition of Gen. Crowder. it la aald.
He say? that if all men of that ace
were lilted the number of exemption?
would be very high on account of the
largo percent??*? of them who arc
married or In ?teady occupation?. Also
much time would be lost In aifting
out the fact? with recard to their
condition?. And, in many cases,
where they would be taken a greater
hardship would be worked upon a
larfer number of people.

Hungarian and Austrian
Armies to Be Separate
Zurich. Jan. C.?The newspaper
Tester Lloyd, of Budapest, a copy of
which has been received here, alate?
that the question of a separate iden
tity of the Austrian and the Hun?
.garlan armies now has been MS?
tied. The joint ministry of the w?r
will be abolished and the Hungar
ian military administration will be
placed under a Honved Ministry,
while the Austrian force? will be
under a ministry of national de
fense.
Independent Austrian ?nd Hun
garian army organisation? will be
?retted, but the training and equip
ment of both will be absolutely uni
form. The language u?ed in the
army service and the high com
mand of th? Hungarisn ?rmy will
be Manar.
