Whither, Whence, and Why?
B Some folks are fortunate enough, for their own peace of mind, I
to be born "put"
That is, they start out by being' a Democrat or a Repoblican, a j
radical or a conservative, and they never change.
They buttress their soul each year with new belief in the infal-j
libility of their faith, and regard all outside their camp as crooks,
enemies, forsaken aliens, and without hope of a hereafter. Such
minds miss a lot of exercise, and alsq much confusion.
Your true conservative clings to the feet of his ancient idols,
Bnd never loosens his grasp of faith, no matter what storms sweep
?SJver him. Your born radical keeps agitating, regardless of argu
ment, or proof of the error of his theories.
V Most of ns are whipped about by the contending tides; we ebb|
with the safe and sane crowd, and surge with the insurgents.
One day we regard the plea of the suffering wage serf and find|
our heart melting in pity at his sad plight, and the next we get^
mixed up in some riotous strike, called without caase by some fiery
agitator, and as the brickbats rattle from our beans, we feel the tides j
of reform ebbing away and leaving us stranded, gasping on the shoals
of hide-bound standpatism.
Somewhere between the outposts of these two contending camps I
is the line of truth, bat the mass of the people surge and sway back
and forth over this thin line, are pushed by the Bolshevik one day
and by the imperialist the next, until about all the line is good for is
to be an imaginary mark for our souls to shoot at.
Most of the world wants to do the right thing; more so today
than ever, but most of the world has a terrible lot of trouble making
up its mind what is the right.
Neither the communism of riotous Russia nor the high-handed
regime of the Hohenzollerns appeal a? a haven of refnge for a won
dering world; and we find communistic Russia a bit tired of its free
dom and republican Germany bending a more attentive ear to the
pleas of the deposed imperialism.
The chief menace to civilization erervwhere is the fact that no
body feels responsible for what is going to happen.
The worst has happened. Statesmen are beginning to say that
high prices are due to psychological factors.
America on a Spending Spree.
As long as the people will pay, that long will prices continue to
skyrocket. That prices have been advanced beyond all reason is un
questioned. The people have continued to hand out their money
with little or no protest or concern. The producer, manufacturer,
middleman and retailer have taken it. The producer demanded higher
prices because he could get them, and so it has gone all along the
omas E. Wilson unquestionably is a good butcher, and the suc
f his packing business stamps him as a good financier. But
>t of his packing business we wish to speak. It is of his knowl
f present conditions. He says:
?ashington, as is the world at large, is on a grar.d big holiday.
here and everywhere are spending money like drunken sailors,
nus: stop spending lavishly and begin producing if they would
down the high cost of living and bring conditions back to
? hit the nail squarely on the head. Lavish spending, without
?>or.ding lavishness in production, begets abnormal conditions,
e people show better judgment in buying. Merchants would
:n a larger volume of business if the people bought wisely. And
ople would get more for their money.
?endthrift- disrupt trade for the retailer and manufacturer. The
bears the burden.

3 the right and to the left
...irope wants our material, but she also wants our material pros
perity. And the quickest way to get it is to sell us something.

few more parlor economists who can pose in exchange for victuals.

A number of us are not going

These statements were made dur-'
ing a running debate between Sen-]

ator Pittman. Democrat, in which j
the latter took the position that the
Senate after ratifying the treaty
might adopt a resolution explaining
the conditions upon which it was
ratified. Senator Kellogg insisted !
that this would not do. that the!
reservations must be made part of
the resolution of ratification. He
declared the Senate should make a
binding declaration to form part of
the ratifying resolution, and added
"I cajinot believe that any other
power will object to these reserva

a moment, permit the council of the '
