Politicians are still talking about competitive armaments. Many ,of'thcm do not see that the formation of a league of nations is brought nearer every day. There are good reasons why other nations will not want to go ^iitto a free-for-all navy building or any other kind of armament com petition with Uncle Sam. Thfre are facts about man power, wealth, tional incomes?all comprising potential military and naval power !?!.Jjat the long headed abroad as well as here must take into con sideration. A conservative estimate of our total wealth is $.250,000,000,000. A conservative estimate of our total annual income is $50,000,000,000. [The fact is, though, that this last figure should be nearer $60,000, [joco.ooo. On the dollar score the United States is far and away the great Vat- nation in the world. The British Empire comes next, but with -wrnch less than half our income?between $20,000,000,000 and $22, Jabq,o<x> 3'2 ? And dollars in this connection mean something more than a big TlanV account, to sit back and brag about. They mean power?power to build ships, to transport and equip fighting men, to be ready for ""anything! -"*'^In population?effective population?we are also ahead. We "Save well over 100,000,000. In military terms, this means that we 1iave over 20,000,000 men of what is called "militia age" with millions a?0IP>ng on every year. ..Here again the British Empire comes second. Her total of ef fective population is only abont 70,000,000. France has less than 40, -000,000 souls, and she is about on a par with other European nations. ^In man power Japan is next effective to England, with 50,000,000 or ,,l?0rc. With submarines and airplanes and three-day mystery ships cross jpg the Atlantic, with Mcxico on one side, Canada on the other, and ?xfapan just across the Pacific Uncle Sam has learned that, failing Adequate guarantees of peace, he cannot live alone without a gun in the house. B,i. Uncle Sam, speaking in the voice of Woodrow Wilson across rite pcace table at Versailles, has just this to say: "I don't want to go in for expensive armaments. I'd rather pay part for a first-class police force?a league of nations that will not only have the inclina tion. but will have the power, to keep the peace. But, if you fellows ??Won't play that way, all right; I will go in for the armaments?a navy and all the rest of it?and I guess I can set the pace if I have ' to." It's a safe bet that, getting right down to cases that way, the greatest nation of them all will be listened to. Does Dr. Saleeby Want to Deprive Us of Mother's Pie? An attack is being made on mother's pie! far There have been other attacks. Lots of them. By boys, hungry 9ttlc scamps? By men home for a holiday visit to mother. And by foodsavers. ? But this is another kind of an attack. Dr. C. W. Saleeby, of London^ England, is backing a scheme which would make it next to impossible for us to get any more of mother's pie! Saleeby hails the "national kitchen," which was a great success in England during the war. Yyu know about them. They were cooking places run by the government. / # Saleeby says they saved labor, and coal, and food and money for everybody and made housework easier for the women who got from them ready-cooked meals for their families. And they put the cook problem on tlie skids, too. One cook for a whole neighbor hood or village, you know. The rest of the cooks could get angry and quit cooking and go to war for all the housewives cared. Maybe Salcebv is right. Maybe we ought to have public kitchens everywhere. And maybe we will have them, just as we have these jfrab-eats-for-yourselt counters in cities now. But there won't be any more mother's pie when that day comes. ^"Xo, sir! Xobodv can make that kind of pie but mother! Hard Knocks Sometimes Are Caresses. Some of our hardest knocks are really fortune's tenderest caresses. Nature must rnn the gamut of all emotions to become balanced. Hence all kinds of experiences must be endured and enjoyed. Grief is necessary to emphasize the value of delight; the same is so of the relation depression bears to elation; bitterness to sweet; hard ship to ease; failure, success; luxury, privation. Comparison estab lishes standards for us. Suffering awakens consideration for others. What we regard as direct tragedy may be rarest blessing?in the end. Well, what d'ye know! Here's another Christmas gone by, and I the Kaiser didn't eat dinner in Paris! ^ Yale law school is opened to women. Perhaps a married pro cessor has discovered woman's capacity for argument. '? To normal minds this is a world of change, but to the mind of Potsdam Bill it's one ot'-chains, with the jangle growing nearer.

To Editor of The Washington Herald; An editorial in "The Washington Herald" for today paints a very dark and gloomy picture of Iceland and of present and past conditions there. The picture Is, however, not a little overdrawn. It is true, that Iceland has suffered a great deal on account of the ravages of the Spanish infiu en*a Just as Europe and America and Iiylia and the rest of the world has suffered from the same plague. But the commercial representative of the government of Iceland, Mr. Gunnar Kg it son. desires through thia department to say. that the people of Iceland do not suffer from lack of food. It is also incorrect, when your edi torial says of Iceland that "only a few years back famine stalked. Peo ple made flour of the hark of trees. They ate moss." There has been no famine in Ice land in modern times, and the Ice landers never made flour of the bark of trees for the simple reason that Iceland practically is a treeless coun try. Further on in the same editorial you say. that the people of Iceland have to face and fight "volcanoes, bitter frost, wild storms, lava land, short seasons," and you ask: "Why do people cling to such undesirable spots of earth?" You will find this question answered in an editorial in "The New York Sun" for December 2. which says in part: "We know that Iceland is not all ice; that it has some fertile, produc tive land intensively cultivated, and that the Gulf current gives the South ern coast a part of the year a mild and agreeable climate. Travelers tell us of picturesque scenery, of vol canic mountains, glaciers and fjords." ROGER NIELSEN. Press Department Danish Legation.

It's about time we ,had a few re marks about the Bureau Band. Or ganised October 14. 1918. for the pur pose of creating a feeling of good fellowship among the employes of the bureau and serving them when ever possible, this band has made wonderful progress and bids fair to exceed anything of its kind in Wash ington. in the very near future. The nucleus for this splendid organization was found in the band the Plate Printers' Union organized just prior to the war. but which was compelled to disband on account of the rush of work and the assignment of the men to various shifts. Realizing the possibility of reor ganizing this band and the presence of talented musicians In other divi sions of the bureau, the committee on patriotic exercises. of which Maurice ("alker is chairman, proceeded to gather the names of prospective mu sicians and called a meeting, which resulted in the organization of the Bureau Band. This band Is repre sented by every division in the bu reau and is composed, at present, of about thirty talented musicians, while the beginners will swell the tota! to sixty bjr summertime. Its services are subject to the director's call first. then the Secretary of the Treasury and the various organizations in the bureau, without compensation.

"SCHOOL DAYS" By DW1G Wfaydt-3 coi-nctj Ships and the Average Man The Man Who Made Our War Emergency Fleet Prescribes Its Use in Time of Peace By CHARLES M. SCHWAB Former Head of the Emergency Fleet Corporation. The real problem of the boslness man is still before us. It is an ex ceedingly difficult one. I shall state some of the problems of a general character that we must face, and work out. The first thing is a great change in the social structure of this country, a change ultimately for the better, for the happiness of mankind and the development of human na ture. a change by which the aristocrat of the future will be the man who has done something for his fellow men. We have been called a materialistic nation?a great manufacturing nation, a great nation of merchants and i business men. It was the custom In old-time Europe and in other coun-1 tries so to think of uh. . I have always been proud of the fact that I am a citizen of a nation that can be so called. The indus trial people are the backbone of the nation: they are the people who will make our nation what it ought to be. The work I have had before me for the past nine or ten months in the building of ships with the Emergency Fleet has been exceedingly interesting. This work was an engineering prob lem. not engineering of construction or of a machine, but wha. I call an 1 engineering of the hum?n mind and of the human body. When I undertook wlti. my asso ciates. who have been so loyal and so able, the construction of a merchant marine for the United States, I real ized that there was just one possi- J bility for success, and that success was not to come about by reason of the shipyards or the engine works, or the boiler works, or anything else that we might construct, because that would require time and years of de velopment. It could be brought about in an emergency quickly only by ap pealing to the best energies and the patriotic endeavor of the citizenship represented by the workmen of the I i United States. ! That we succeeded in this undertak ing I am happy to say has been be yond doubt. You will perhaps be In terested to know briefly about it. Before this year the maximum out put of ships in the United States in | any one year was something less than 400.000 tons. During the month of October there were placed in commis sion in the United States 416,000 tons of shipping. In the month of No vember. for which we have not re ceived the exact figures, I anticipate that we shall have placed In commls j slon something over 500.000 tons of ships. We may construct 100,000.000 tons of j ships, but they will have no value to this great nation of ours unless we I do what is more important than the construction of ships, and that ia to devise the ways and means for their operation. A great merchant marine! is essential to the United States for OPHELIA'S SLATE. G(TS Trt ARE GO its ultimate success. Its successful operation is not for the benefit of any one man or class of men. or any one branch of business, but it is for the good of every individual citiren of the United States. I do not care what plan, in the opinion of our great legislators at Washington, may be best for the op eration of these ships, so long as they \ are operated economically and so long ] as the expense of operation is not borne by any one or few. but by the whole people No American ship building can be profitable or success ful or enlist private capital today, as shipping is now operated. The people who constitute the chambers of com merce. the manufacturers of the United State, must raise their voices I for the successful operation of our , mercantile marine. Do not let the cry that only a few may profit by , subsidies or otherwise deter you in | the least. I do not care in what form, the peo- 1 pie pay the bill. If the government' operates the ships themselves and op- j erates them at a loss, the people pay the bill. If the ships are operated by j private concerns and a loss accrues I that is made up in some forin of : subsidy, the people themselves pay the | bill. So that whatever form may be adopted, we must find some way of j doing it. I do not hesitate to say, however? I not as a politic n, because in that II have never had any part?that the ] real develoment of any great enter-' prise depends on the individual initia- ! tive of the American business man. I ! do not believe that we will ever get ! the full economical development of any irreat branch of American indus- \ try that is not developed under pri- I vate enterprise and by private capital, j What part has this in this great transition? I will tell you. It is well I illustrated by'the steel industry. Dur-: ing this year the steel industry will I have made approximately 45.COO.OCO' tops of steel. Before the war twenty- I five to thirty million was considered; a big output. This great development has been brought about by needs of the war. In my opinion it Is higher on the average than the amount whit# this country needs at this time. This country will rapidly develop to. the full need of it. but at this moment ? it is more than we need for domestic wants. Our great outlet for all our manufactures must be foreign mar kets. HAw are we going: to get Into I the foreign markets? The ship yards of the United States during the vear 1919 are capable of producing with ease, and economically. between | S,000,000 tnd 30,000,000 tons of ocean shipping. The total ocean tonnage which the [ United States will possess at the end of that period, will, if properly and economically operated, furnish a mer chant marine that should make our industries secure In this transition period. There is one other question of great and timely importance, to cover which no one can lay down general rules. That is the labor question. I am one of the men who believe; In the fairness of American labor. The only foundation upon which any of these things can permanently rest is the economic use of everything, whether it be labor, material, or what not. Any foundation of organized la bor or capital that Is on a false basis must fall. ?et n?wr to the Wnrkf ngmnn. We started in some twenty years ago on a series of exploitations that I many people called "trusts." There were many such concerns organized that htfd as their prime motive the artificial idea of either restricting pro duction or increasing the selling price Tou have seen them, one after the other, fall and fade away. They were on a wrong basis. Our Congress, our legislature in Washington, realized it and rightly and Justly took steps to correct it. What has been true of capital will be equally true of labor, an^ therefore the education of the American labor ing man must be to have him realize I that hie happiness and success, and the success of the nation, will depend upon labor conditions and capital con ditions that at-e founded first of all. on economic principles. You know, T have had my hand in this matter of the organisation of capital. I know something about It; Iknow what I am talking about. I am not opposed to organized la bor. 1 believe that labor should or ganize in individual plants or amongst themselves for the better negotiation of labor and the protection of their own rights; but the organization and I control of labor in individual plants and manufactories, to my mind, ought to be made representative of the peo ple in those plants who know condi tions; that they ought not to be con trolled by somebody from Kamchatka who knows nothing about what their conditions are. In years gone by. I questioned many times if labor has received its fair share of the prosperity of this coun try. We. as manufacturers, have got to open our eyes to a wider vision of the present and the future with refer ence to our workmen. We have got , to devise ways and means by which i capital and labor shall share equally, not only in theory, but in practice. That is one of the lessons this great war has taught us?true democracy. The thing we have to do is to teach, not patronize, to educate and have the ; American laborer feel that he can ' stand with his head in the air and j say with pride, , "I am an American j citizen." Matters will adjust themselves In dustrially in this country sooner or ( later by the natural course of events, but what we want to prevent is that | sudden slip of the cog which will I give up a social jolt that may be dan- ! gerous to our industries for years to I come. We must be patient. We must | go along with small or no profits, if j necessary. We must get closer to- i gether with our working people. We ' must listen with patience to their side of the story, and we must Induce them I to listen with patience to our side of . the story. My work in Philadelphia and In Washington in connection with the! fleet has been exceedingly interesting, i It is exceedingly interesting now. It j is very important now. I telegraphed. 1 however, a few days ago to the Pres ident of the United States that. Im portant as this work at Washington ( was. I felt that having 170.000 em- j ploves of my own and a payroll of1 twenty-five million dolars a month, I could be of greater service to this na- ! tion and this country by retiring from ( ihe work 1 had in Philadelphia to the: study of important questions that | would arise in connection with this transition period In the various in dustries of the United States, and I begged to be relieved from one im portant duty to take up what I be lieved to be a still more important duty. I am an optimist. I am not a pes-l simist. During my career in bust- j ness life. I have never lost confidence ; in the United States or in its manu facturing and industrial position. Pe riods of retraction and recession and ?repression have come, but the grand ctSrve and the general tend Is always upward and onward.
