German women are not appealing to American women to supply them with shiploads of free food. ? ? Read their appeal; It is for the release of railway cars and locomotives to be sur rendered to the allied powers tinder the armistice terms. The German women argue that unless these cars and engines are left in German hands food supplies cannot be brought from German) farms to German towns and cities for distribution, in which easel starvation is likely for hundreds of thousands half-famished on that scientific war diet which we were told a while back was such a good thing for the overfed peoples of the world. The long, four-year war taught us all that you can't trust any thing that comes out of Germany. It's all camouflage. Nothing is tfue, nothing is holy, nothing has good faith. What cunning scheme is behind this appeal of the German women, an appeal sent to America, ignoring Commander-in-Chief Foch? The cars and locomotives requisitioned from Germany by the terms of the armistice are the same cars and locomotives that moved German troops from front to front and up and down the lines in be wilde ring numbers and with bewildering speed all through the war. The same cars and locomotives that carried to the millions of Ger man troops their enormous supplies of food, clothing, camp equipage, ammunition and guns. The same cars and locomotives that hauled from France and Belgium and Russia huge loads of lumber, coal and iron ore to make shells and guns and airplanes. The same that bore billions of dollars' worth of loot from invaded territories back into Germany. These cars and locomotives did not carry food from the farms to the towns for four years, and yet the populace didn't starve. Where are the cars and engines that performed that service for four years5 The allied war council that dictated the terms of the armistice also adopted a resolution to provision Germany against starvation this winter. President Wilson in his speech to Congress said that the allies and Africans are already organizing to feed Germany as they or ganized to feed Belgium. Herbert Hoover is today en route to Europe to start this hu manitarian work. He has already declared that Germany can feed herself. Enough said. Some day we may forget how tickled were the German people? women included?when the Lusitania was carried down with its precious burden of our women and babes. Some day we may lorget thi pleasurable thrills the people of Germany felt when hundreds of women and children were blown to bits in London and Paris by Zeppelins. v-. But we're not chumps enough to be taken in any more by Ger man propaganda and cunning. W e're not quite certain what s the game in this locomotive-and-car appeal, but wc know it's a trick. Service. Woman's transcendental calling is motherhood; man's supreme!' function is service. Upon his ability to serve rests man's capability to .pTovide, to meet life's material responsibilities and obligations. Extent of service, though indisputably the measure of his-value to community, country and society, unfortunately is not yet the gauge to '-noluments and recognition. spectacular, while mayhap of transient worth, by its nature an importance and prominence that overshadows the less jhoK ?-ut more intrinsic service. war's heroes of the sea and battlefield go down the ages on ?ilders of mankind.

Substantial tribute is the only adequate reward; rest for the body bended by arduous endeavor and labor's burden. Make pos sible some of life's pleasure and relaxation to those who dedicated tbeir utmost to the nation's need. We burn no flattering incense before the deservedly censured cen sorship. But we'll be highly incensed if Boche propaganda continues to reach us uncensored. N One of the attractive features of the job of feeding Germany is that it will drain American food stocks and keep up our high prices. Our enemies will cat and we will pay the bill. No wonder Prince Henry of Prussia sides with the republicans. He knows what it means to be suppressed by an autocratic brother with jealousy in his eye. Socialists in Germany no doubt feel dazed by the discovery that so many persons of title sympathize with their republican tendencies.

By EDMUND VANCE COOKE. *0, we've been looking over as we sent the boys across .-" And pride and hope have mingled with sober sense of loss, But now the road which led away becomes a homeward track And all our eyes a>e straining till the boys come back; Till the boys come bark. Till the boys come back. Surely there'll be singing when the boys come back; Every face is beaming. Every heart is dreaming; Dreaming its delight because the boys come back. Tho' we kept on smiling as we sent the boys away, Striving in our parting to be as brave as they, Many an eye has moistened as it looks across the foam, But now our eyes will brighten as the boys come home. As the boys come home, As the boys come home. Surety there's be dancing when the boys come home; Tender *yes are glancing, Happy hearts are dancing, Dancing their delight because the boys come home. (Copyright. 1IU1 J Upkeep of Best Ships Causes Deteriorating of Others. There will be a surprising lot of junk in the German navy that is be ing turned over to the allies and Americans under the armistice. This fact. It 'is explained by navy officials here, is due to the German policy which for the past two years has concentrated itself on the up- j keep of the best ships and a concen-j tration of construction on the sub marine and airplane. In both of the latter categories they fell far behind the allies and the United States. Officials say that there is no inven tory here of the ships that are to sur render to the allies. They 4,ay battleship construction, with two o three exceptions, was laid aside ana that the formidable twenty-year pro gressive program had a serious Jolt soon after the Jutland fight. The bat tle fleet. Including the battle misers. were kept in dock until they were surrendered. They anticipate, there fore. that of the seventy-four war ships spoken of in the dispatches, most of them will be out of repair. The last valuable records of Ger many's battleship and battle crut*e!J i strength showed that she had thirteen Dreadnoughts built and seven building and of ordinary bat tleships 20; four battle cruisers built and four building. Of the Dread nought* four were of ?Hly tonnage the rest 22.000 to 24.000 Of j the ships she intended to build four were of only 25.000 tons in round numbers and the others 28.500 tons each. Of the twenty so-called bat tleships they varied in tonnage from 10.974 tons to 12.991 tons Ger many's armored cruisers were nine In number varying from 10,520 to 15,500 tons burden. Lonf-Etred Owl a Hon. If you meet the Virginia long-eared owl. he Is a regular Bolshevik Hun and he will kill rabbits, squirrels, chickens, game birds, young and old. Just like any Hun. So do not give him the scout aalute, but give him a charge of bird shot instead. Treat the snowy owl in the same way. He Is a beautiful bird and makes a fine specimen to set on the bookcase, ana is a great deal more useful there than sitting on a chicken coop. There's something funny about tne. field mice too If we have too many | of them we will never have any cl?*er# | The field mice do not eat clover, but , they will destroy the bumble-bees neit and no clover can grow without bumble-bees. Moreover, the bumble bees get the honey from the clover and distribute the pollen to other, plants and fertilize them ?o that tne need will ripen. Honey bees cannot reach the honey In the red clover, consequently they leave It alone. Thus you see that the cloverU de pendent upon the bumhle-bee. th?t the bumble-he., are dependent upontha owl. and hawks; otherwise the mice would exterminate thenrv Gee this W a funny world Kverythln*ea" t^l up together.-Dan Beard.

WATCH SPREAD OF BOLSHEVISM Critics Discuss Probable Nature of New Govern ment in Germany. The spread of Bolshevism in Europe outside of Ruasia is discussed very earnestly in Washington but more es pecially with reference to the work I of the coming peace congress. Marked 1 distinctions are made, however, by officials as to various "group*" in various countries as compared with Bolshevism in Russia. The countries, they point. In which there hafl been reference to Bolshevist local agitation are Germany. Holland. Sweden. Spain and Switzerland. In these countries, it is contended, noi.e but the lowest Intellectual groups stand for anarchy and other like crimes for the mere sake of destruc tion. Oppose Junker Rale. As to Germany it is believed the So- , rtalists. not Including the most radi- j ;al of the independent Socialists, have ; the intention of creating a govern-1 nent which will be absolutely antl-1 lunker. but on the other hand, will! attract to itself the average working- j nan who knows the general good ! means his own good. The German j parties< for the present at least, In the saddle, have before them, as aj Ixed fact, that the peace congress , ivilt deal only with a government that I las a prima facie chance of stability. ! This idea, it is believed by officials J here, permeate Bavaria, the next i ureatest component of the empire to, the old kingdom of Prussia^ and that j these two former kingdoms will be ? ible to present by the time the con- i cress meets not only the substance t>ut the form of a social or demo cratic government which shall havej lubordinated the red-rag crowd. Berlin Face* Martini Law. If that be not done it seems cer tain that the allied armies would have to cross the Rhine, go as fir as Berlin and set up a military gov ernment, which would la?t under martial law until a stable govern ment had been set up by the "rep resentative German people.'* So far. however, observers here even in very high places do not regard this as a near probability. Their view is that the "working man" of Germany will be the solution of the trouble, because he is neither a Nihilist nor an anarchist by trade. A LINE 0- CHEER EACH DAY 0' THE YEAR.

MOTOR RIDES NEEDED FOR RETURNED YANKS Writer Suggests Walter Reed Men j Ought to See Washington. To the Editor of The Washington I Herald?Last evening the writer at- J tended a little social given for some of the soldiers who have returned j to their native land carrying all too plainly the marks which indi-j rate at what a cost they have de- J fended that land on foreign soil. All J waa laughter and merriment in the I little party, but the hearts of the men and * omen who were acting as ? hosts ached with the pity they could] not show as they noted how those brave young faces?those splendid j young bodies marred forever in the j rause for which they were ready I to give their lives if need be. In a casual way, the question was i asked of several of these boys?mho were all from Walter Reed Hospital ?hMT they liked Washington. The! replies were rather hesitating?every one was very kind to them, they received splendid treatment at the hospital, but when it came to ex pressing an opinion of the city itself, j they were unable to reply. Thay I simply haven't had a chance to see [ It. Washingtonlans are proud, and justly so. of the many beauty spots ' in and around the Capital, all of which are reached by smoothly paved highways, ideal for motoring. That is practically the only way In which visitors can really obtain i the proper impression of this beau tiful city. With the multitude of motor ears in Washington at the present time. It would seem a simple matter for the owners to volunteer the use of their machines for a certain desig- j nated time each week or each day. ? depending upon their own conveni ence. the hospital authorities to co operate in arranging a schedule for those of the men who are able to leave the grounds. Where a chauffeur is employed, the only consideration would be the time of day when the owner could most conveniently do without his machine In those rases where the car is driven by the owner, it would mean a sacrifice of some of his leisure time, unless he were nWe to arrange wJ:li some Tfiend or memver of his family to perforin this service. But in any r*ce. is it not more than worth the slight cost and inconvenience to the indi vidual to give these heroic lads a change from the routine hospital lifp in such an enjoyable fashion? This would help to make the recollec tion of their stay In Washington a pleasant one. instead of a memory of pain and loneliness and humdrum routine. V. 8.
