Politicians are still talking about competitive armaments. Many

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
? 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.

I Declares Iceland Does Not Suffer
from Lack of Food.
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
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
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
"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."

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.

ganizing this band and the presence

Ships and the Average Man
The Man Who Made Our War Emergency
Fleet Prescribes Its Use in Time of Peace
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
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
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
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
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
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 .

Be Signed Before Jan. 10.

of cleavage between the National Suf
frage Association supporters and tha
pioketera. and that not even victory
will wipe out the difference over meth
? ods on which the two groups split.
