Before next winter's snow flies, this country will experience the greatest period of prosperity in its history, in the opinion of Louis F. Post Assistant Secretary of Labor. First however, we must weather a period of readjustment that ] will test the fiber of the people to the utmost "That period may bring suffering; it may bring empty stomachs," said Post "but once it is tided over, an era of prosperity will follow " that will exceed any the United States ever had. "There are two reasons for my prediction. "First historical precedent After the civil war, from 1867 to 1873. this country saw boom times, the North especially. Prosperity finally led to speculation, and speculation increased to such an extent that prosperity finally collapsed. Booming times naturally create the ' impression they will last forever; that is one error we must avoid after this war. "My second reason is economic, and based on the fact that all the soldiers who are coming back into industry were taken out of industry r? the first place. Why shouldn't there be places for every one of them when they return? "Before the war our net immigration was 800,000 a year. It has fallen off to nothing. This lack has been partly offset by the advent of women in industry, but not entirely offset Congress is dealing with legislation to further restrict immigration in the interests of American labor. "The demand for labor, if it doesn't become greater than it was before the war, will at least absorb all the supply. Unless our de mand for production has permanently fallen off, we shall have a de mand for more labor than we ever had before?unless immigration * increases in the next few years. The needs of Europe in reconstruct ing herself will prevent that. "We face a period of dislocation in industry due to the change from a war to a peace basis. That period was unavoidable. "How long this period will last I cannot say. It may be two months, or three or four, but I think the country will have readjusted "itself before next winter. "Unquestionably the labor surplus is slowly increasing. I have here the figures for the first three weeks in February, gathered from 6,928 concerns in 122 different cities. On February 1 these 6,928 firms employed 3,479,875 men; on February 8 they employed 3,412,944 men, and on February 15 the number had fallen to 3,386,090. From ' the ist to the 15th they laid off a total of 93.785 men." "I think prices will largely remain stationary. They stayed up ?fter the civil war for a number of years. ."After all, what difference does it make if the cost of living re mains high, so long as wages also remain high?' The monetary .standard is merely nominal; a dollar is only a dollar so long as you call it a dollar. If we called a dozen eggs a dollar, they'd be a dollar. "The real problem is for each man to be able to get the equiva lent of full value for the work he gives. "Business men and employers are overlooking the fact that the real employer of labor is the consumer?the laboring man himself! "Every man who is put to work, whether it be building a house, constructing a road or digtring a ditch, is employing other men; men who sell him food and clothes, and these in turn employ others who manufacture the food and clothes. "That's why the Labor Department is urging persistently the open ing up of public construction and road building to take up the present slack in the labor market. These buildings and roads may not be needed now, and the cost of building them may be abnormally high, but they will give employment to thousands of men who in turn will give employment to thousands of others, and thus the country will be saved from hunger next summer." The Ominous Silence of Our Board of Education. The public school teachers of Washington have been fighting a winning fight for increased salaries. They have not been fighting tinglehandcd, yet they have been without what could be their main gupport. While the cause of the teachers has been championed by all citi zens' associations, by labor organizations, by business men and Wash ington in general, the Board of Education has remained silent. It is a silence which teachers cannot understand, which the public does not understand. The Washington Herald has made inquiry and hai not been able to find a satisfactory explanation. The Board of Education need not be told that our public school system faces a serious crisis. This board knows that after years of preparation and personal sacrifices, teachers receive a salary less than one-half of an inexperienced government clerk. The Board of Edu cation knows that unless decent salaries are obtained for our teachers present wholesale resignations will be accentuated and our educa tional institutions, upon which is dependent the upbringing of our youth, will be demoralized. We do not believe that this is a time for our Board of Education to maintain its customary dignity. By maintaining silence on an issue so vital as is the obtaining of a living wage lor teachers, the Board of Education breeds an tagonism among the ranks of the teachers who it controls which can not help but counteract in the future with disastrous effects. ? As a matter of fact, German diplomats will probably regard any thing less than the worst possible punishment as a victory for Ger many. Future legislation to control disease germs should provide some proper treatment for the genus that invents new machines for use in the game of organized murder. The treasury of the new republic of Hunland will have its bur dens, but there will always be enough cash on hand to put federal buildings in cross-roads towns and dredge isolated brooks. Bingen on the Rhine. (By Lieut Grantland Rice, Third Army, A. E. F.) Wien I was still a tow-head kid across an ancient spell. And had to do as I was bid or catch all ballycl; I still recall with maudlin curse the day I had to rise And kick in with some foolish verse with terror in my eyes; "Beneath the Spreading Chestnut Tree"?"The Ride of Paul Revere"? "Upon a Stern and Rock-bound Coast"?and others just as sere; Bat from the list which stands accurst where nightmares still entwine. The one that I recited first was "Bingen on the Rhine." Ach Gott! The morning I arose upon the schoolhouse stand. With pallid cheek and snaking toes and tremors of the hand; lly heart went up to meet my mouth, my bulging eyes grew dim, My tongue was drier than a drouth along Sahara's rim; "A soldier of the legion lay"?and then with starting tears, I stopped without a word to say, for I forgot Algiers. And that's why heart and soul still burn and cold chills soak the spine, Aarh time my morbid thoughts return to Bingen on the Rhine. "And now against the Hun's abode with steady tramp along. The old Third army hits the road, two hundred thousand strong; As dim dawns from th?? eastward creep the vanguards down the plain TTiey hold their sector of the sweep that started from Lorraine. \ don't know yet where Bingen stands upon the bally map, Jsor yet which allied army lands upon its waiting lap: But while for war and all its hell I can't say that I pine, I'd like to drop at least one shell in Bingen on the Rhine. New York. March 1?A p?-K* from the d*ary of a modern Samuel Pepys: Up, and came Mr. ?Putting, my school fetlow, wtth a tierce of claret against the coming of July and I gave it to the hand-maiden not wanting it about the place, albeit I gave him warm thanks. Dean Corn well, the artist, comes from his Jersey heath and brings word that R. Long, the editor, haul been stricken with the plague but bis fears are quieted and he will re?cover. For a walk through the town where I met my wife, poor wretch, and to Fotsom's gallery to see some brave prints, one In especial of a flu ter playing the flute being very excellent. This day I hear that Mistress Ann, wife of Tom Stanton, is brought to bed by a boy and I sent six tulips and Lord the price* A great dark sky and a shower of rain at noon kept me down-town and I lunched with Mr. Knowles on a fine meat pasty and a large beaker of iced coffee, he pay ing the reckoning. At the boot-maker* I met the come Mest and most becoming maid that I have seen in a Ions time but when a fellow clerk Jostled tn passing I sbe cursed him like a costermonger acd I was abashed. In the afternoon for a walk and to a home to drink a China drink called tea and there came R. Goldberg, the comick limner, lately returned from sketching in France. Mistress Gtfd berg, Mr. Williams, from Indianapo lis. Mr. Briggs, Mr. Ireland, the Co lumbus sketcher, and Mistress Brink erhoff sang some erwet ayres, very pretty. In the evening to a cinema play, which I thought inept, and thence to Morlaxzo's for a large helping of spaghetti and meat sauce and livers with onions and then home and to bed. Will the coffee house supplant the saloon? Two are getting ready to open on Broadway. The old cof fee haunta of England proved an Inspiration for some of our best literature. Returning travelers from Porto Rico report that since the island "went dry" fifty per cent more coffee Is used, and the restau rants are chargin ten cents a cup. There are a number of Greek coffee house.- on Second avenue ani the Bowery. They are mostly cheap hang-outs for gangsters and stuns players. Tea rooms are, of course, a fixture, and are doing a great business, but some believe the coi fee houee will be the most popular | of all the new types of drinking places. The White Way has been flooded recently by street urchins who beg money from military men coming out of restaurant.?, hotels ami theaters. The Infantile panhandler-? never approach a civilian, but seem to think a story of hunger here .is quite as appealing as If told on the fringes of battlefields In Belgium and France. The scheme has worked. Many of the soldiers have undergone great deprivations and they cannot refuse to lend a helping hand. Of course, the char ity is misdirected, but the police have been unable to stop it. He wore a fur-trimmed overcoat, a pointed pair of patent leathers, with mulatto tops, and the fus siest shirt that ever escaped be ing an awnlnt?. He was drinking a rainbow looking cocktail in an afternoon dansant and from tim_? to time he extracted from a dia mond studded cigarette case a monogrammed cigarette and puffed at it through a holder at leayt a foot long. Some one in ray party bowed to him in recognition. The rest got to guessing about what be did for a living. One suggested he was a retired street sprinkler of Venice. Another opined he was a hammock demonstrator. All were wrong. You can never tell in New York. He was the vice-president of a large shipping concern. Fur thermore, he is a self-made man and gives heavily to charities. D.

BUREAU OF ENGRAVING ID PRINTING NEWS A handsome picture of the Bureau Band was printed In the second sec tion of The Sunday Herald. Aa an item in thi... column stated, the band picture had been crowded out, and scores of members and their friends failed to find the picture yesterday. However, it is well worth saving, and may be had by securing a copy of The Sunday Herald at the office. The stnmp perforating division had a big celebration Saturday, when the eirls from the night force- which has been In operation for mor? than a year and has just been discontinued, were welcomed back on day work. Great things are expected from this division in the future. Mrs. J T*ashhorn. of the wetting division, has recently undergone an operation in a local hospital.

Platt and Mrs. Nellie Chase, expert "hello'' girls of the bureau, are some pie eaters. When they finished, there was nothing left for Otto. It is a fact that Miss E. Fitzger ald worked every day last month. Hope her foot don't slip. The night force of the stampi gumming room is no more, having1 been discontinued Friday night.

The secret is out now, how ever, and Mr. and Mrs. Ragean are going to housekeeping in the near future ata the Raymond in Twenty second street.
