In his usual forceful manner Mr. Arthur Brisbane in yesterday's Hearst papers editorializes as follows: "The Attorney General is entitled to public thanks for doing a necessary job thoroughly. Slackers couldn't be expected to step up ?nd identify themselves. It was necessary to find them. "Men that won't take the trouble to carry identification cards ?nd weep because they were inconvenienced for a few hours would learn something from a good moving picture showing life in the trenches. "These are war times, not panic times. Those that object to the slacker raid are like the young English lady who wanted the war to stop because she could no longer get the right kind of dog biscuit for her poodle." If Mr. Brisbane would think as assidiously as he writes, he would go down in history as the greatest editorial writer of the times, but just now he is handing the administration a blanket approval and such a course eliminates thinking. Any one who thinks that the administration is always wrong is ? dangerous citizen, but any one who thinks that the administration is always right is just so much a fool. The Department of Justice erred considerably in ?ts wholesale slacker hunt in New York. The immediate discontinuance of the raids after they were brought to Congressional notice is a tacit ad mission of fault Attorney General Gregory in acce; ling the respon sibility is doing the right thing. The department made a mistake, but they should not be damned eternally for a mistake. Upholding the slacker raids, however, is merely a bid for applause. Mr. Brisbane evidently knows little of the actual workings of the raiders. We happened to be in New York during the raids and some of the incidents would have been ludicrous if they had not been so serious. Martial law was not declared, yet soldiers and sailors upon some authority assumed police powers. We heard one man who had been accosted ask for the soldier's authority. The soldier replied, "Mv uniform." The man asked if martial law had been declared and the soldier asked him what he meant by martial law. Another citizen, a newspaper man, on being accosted by a sol dier, showed a press card entitling him to admission to the Senate I r. ~> callery and he was allowed to go his way. These instances arc significant of thousands of others. We sincerely believe that the utmost diligence should attend the search for slackers, but a more efficient method could easily have born devised. More than a year has passed since the first registration day. Certainly during that time a police census of the entire country could have been completed and 100 per cent registration made a fact. We do not question the intentions of the department, but we do a. i-!i that more drastic means would be applied to the search for enemy aliens, lust a few days ago a young woman was arrested in a telc aph office charged with giving information from her offic? to the ? nemy. This young woman's name was so German that she never I biive been permitted to hold such office. ' epartment of Justice is doing good work, bait lauding such i'.ings as the slacker raids does not benefit the country. A man who spends a night in jail loses a good bit of patriotism and we have registered 25,000,000 men now without opposition. It ii too valuable an accomplishment to jeopardize. Despite the Attorney General's statement and Mr. Brisbane's un stinted support, we predict no more wholesale slacker raids. "A Good Front." A famous self-made man once declared that if he were out of a job and had only %x>, he'd spend the $x> for a new suit of clothes be cause he knew how important it was to make a favorable first impres sion?that is, he would put up a "good front." And that's all right. But another man?who lived a long time ago?but whose in fluence will probably be felt long after the self-made man has been forgotten, made this observation: "If I had two pence, I would buy bread with one and with the other I would buy white hyacinths for the good of my soul." The difference between the two men was that the one was con cerned chiefly about the outer man, while the other was careful about the inner man. ? Both bits of advice are valuable and both are necessary. But the old sage who advised that the inner man be built up first was the wiser of the two, for the soul of a man is of greater importance. You can't hide a starved soul by putting up a good front?it's bound to show through. And, to those who see, it makes a man look hungrier and more pitiful than he who wears a shiny coat and dines on a crust of bread. Our Women Workers. A woman's division his been established by th? War Labor Board. Many problems have arisen with which the board has had to deal con cerning women employes, who are rapidly taking the place of men workers who are going into the training camps and trenches. Joint Chairmen Walsh and Taft feel that these problems should be handled for the board by women. There are to be in the future women examiners. The work is headed by Miss Obenauer who was formerly with the U. S. Bureau of Labor Statistics ?nd who is one of the best known labor investigators in the United States. There are also to be field investigators for women workers. These investigators and field representatives are to make impar tial investigations at industrial plants where any trouble is reported. They are to discover what is the cause of the controversy, to meet with both sides, to look into health conditions and wage condiions among women workers and to report back to the War Labor Board with recommendation?. Congressmen complain because of "shortage" of airplanes and destroyers. But if airplane and boat workers recessed as often as Congress does there would be still less. Guerdon. By EDMUND VANCE COOKE. You said good-by to country, you called good-by to me; You waved good-by and sailed across the sea. You promised you would bring me some token of the war. Some guerdon which the world is fighting for. But I would ask no symbol of glory, gain or pelf; I only ask you bring me back yourself. I crave no decoration won on some dismal day, But bring me back the lad you took away. Bring me back the lad vou tcotc away. Keep him as 1 knew him, day by day. Taring him all the war-work through Wave r.nd tender, strong and true. The self-same Yankee lad you took away. You took th<? .'.mimer with you. The rose has lost its blooir It withers without yielding its perfume. You took th? autumn glory; the sun has lost its charm; It shines, but cannot keep my poor heart warm. You ???* the May-time gladness, you left December's blast Which chill? me till this wintry war be past. O, bring me back the morning, turn ferlcnc*? ?-to dav Arri bring me back the lad you took awav.

Here'? how?George laid down enough tradi tion at the outset of this country'? history to last for all time to come. Men and famillee and communities and states and the entire nation have pointed this out fror? time Imm? morial In our country, ?nd they will always continue to do so. And big men all along the line sine? that day have had a potent Influence, too, on the lighting since that time, but George most of all because he staged the litar battle for freedom. The atart wa? right?we bullded on the firmest stone upon which nations can b? erected.

Swagar Sherley deserves the croix de guerre for hl? unheard of act In making a visit to the war ?one and keeping it from everybody. Not all ot the member? of Congre?? could do this?indeed, we know of many, many of them who hav? not attempted to perform thi? ??emlngly miraculous feat. Probihl.

Bui we doubt very much if he will endeavor to commercialise hi? trip into a re-election?a? we suspi cion some of the members of hi? house will try to do. Making political capital of the car nage of Europe la not our Idea of doing the right thing by the constit uent? or the men on th? other side. Mr. Brisbane, from Chicago, writ ing for the voter? of Michigan and siring hi? difficulties for us her* In Washington, haa much to ?ay about Henry Fords dl?ta?tefulnes? to the "big Interest?." Mr. Brisbane Intimate? that those who ?re opposed to Ford'? election ?re ?Hied with all the favored group? and mercenary pest? the country pos sesses. In this he endeavor? to play unfairly, for he knows that this I? not the ease. So far as interests are concerned Mr. Ford is one ????,??G. Ho has be come one of the most stupendous spe cial Interests the worl?! ever produced and, while he has unquestionably taken a different attitude than some of the other group? have, he haa neverthele?? waxed immensely wealthy from the work of others and has made exceedingly high return? on hi? product?. His fitness for a law maker 1? based on hi? activity in the fleM in which he made auch a rapid rise?hut nothing ?how? In it to indi cate that he would ?olve any prob lem better than any other man would who had not fallen Into his fortunate position. And to counterbalance and perhaps completely overshadow any good ?pialltle? which he has there are other eccentr'.cltle? and od?lities which we may well avoid at a time like thi?. A man who would say nothing in the Senate and be absent upon every roll call would be preferable to a man who sought to upset the world at one fell Mow through suggestion of some unusual device for making alt human ity auddenly dispossessed of It? sins and ailment?. A silent, man might be less danserons to the nation than Henry Ford. To recall history of not more than a year and a half ago we ask Mr. Brisbane: "1. What would Henry Ford have done had he be- ? a member of the Senate when the armed neutrality legislation wa? pending 1 "I Would Henry Ford have voted for th? war resolution? "3. Would Henry For-1 have opposed the Obre resolution, the Senate coun terpart of the McLemore House reso lution? "4. If Henry Ford became a mem ber of the Senate would not hla ultra-pat iflsm manifest iiself to our disadvantage when the time came to make peace Would he not favor any kind of peace ln preference to continuing war until Germany la crushed to the utmost?*' "Poor Mr llav>-now It will be next to impossible for him to get date? at the White House, we fear. Certainly he will hayo to go around Secretary Tumulty and then, we suspect, he would run pell meli into Rudolph Forster or Tom Ttrahany who would have precious little more to do with him than their immediate oflVe he-id. lt appears that Secretary Tumtdty has handled the situation with some thing more than Innate cleverness. He has appealed to the sensible, substan tial Judgment of the people of th? nation and haa taken a step which will doubtless have a most profound effect on the election? thi? fall. The President, naturally, ha? not been drawn into the affair and we doubt If he will he now, from appearances. He has let his flrst lieutenant do tho work for training purposes nnd while he ha? been carrying on larger work he ha? not had to worry about fie political aspects of the country'? af fairs. Conduct of the flglit by hi? secre tary wa? In keeping with the position the President hits taken all aloni. Had he lowered himself to calling down Mr. Tiny? It would have react ed upon him ?nd his party. As It is both he and his r*rty are strengthen ed by the tilt. Senator Hardwick will be free, with in a few months, to go lo the army. He will be out of the office he now holds and will be In a position to ac cept anything that l'n'le S#m ha? In ?tore for him In the extended draft. Senator Hardwick can make amenti? by going Into the flght now with all hi? heart. He ha? not been valuable to hi? country ln his present posi tion?there are mm? cruel enough1 to contend that he ha? been valueless. In fact, to the blir thing we've had on hand for the past year and eight months. An adjournment of Conjrrc-s l? looked for about th?? tlrst of October ?'.he House members swear they'll have It. in fact then if they have lo go over and throttle the Senators and make them hold up their hands In ?lient affirmation of the decision to return home at that time. The Intention is to put through the bond legislation In a much quicker time than wag originally thought of ?If thi? program is followed. Tt seem? incredible that the Senato will have finished the big task by that time and that the wishes of the two Houses will be reconciled. On ma 't.'re reflection we think we'll agree that an adjournment I? possible when we actually here the motion for It made ln both Houses. THE OBSERVER.

"This country It facing a crini* in oil production which threaten? Un war program." Judge J. Harry Cov ington. cottr?el for the National petroleum War Service Commitw. told the Senate Committee on Fi nnncp yeeterday. "Hlxty thousand b?rrela of cr irte nit are now being drawn dally from thi? reserve that waa built up by ml producen,*' declared Judge Coving ton. "and If it had not been that a great reserve hnd been stored up. ! Ihe country would have felt the ef- I frets of a serious shortage befoio i tin-- ti me. "All proposed taxes aa affecting oil and gasoline prove burdensome and ? at this time oil and tta by-product? J should he exempt from sale nnd other taxes that would tend to decrease j production and drive oil dealera out of business. "Taxation and all other matters pertaining to the business could be cared for best by au administrative board under government supervision and with wide powers." "If you had a choice would you select a professor of Latin or Greek i of some college to regulate the oil j business?" .isked Senator I'cnrose. of' Pennsylvania. Judge Covi net on allowed the ques tion to pass, but when Pf-nator Lodge csked if the figures on oil production, consumption and reserve furnished I by the Fuel Administration ?ere cor rect.

"The miners of my state, who cannot use their automo bile? to take trips on Sunday to visit their friends and relatives, are taking Saturdays or Mondays off and thus slowing down the production of coal so necessary to the winning of the war.
