Give the Firemen More Pay.
The increase in pay having been given the police, it is now in
lorocr for Congress to quickly recognize the needs of the firemen.
"The bill providing for the increase for the firemen should be passed
?nefore the House adjourns. The firemen have been unobtrusive in
their demands. They have quietly produced evidence of their need
for more pay. It is a business proposition and Congress ought to
treat it as such.
The capital group at the Industrial Conference holds that the
establishment should be the unit of mutual interest for collective
bargaining. What difference will it make if the establishment em
ployes take orders from a national organization?
The laborer sells a specified number of hours to his employer.

?Only commodity he has to sell.
Back in the stone age, before men learned to talk, there were no
?Statesmen.
"Americans?All."
Kojpy man but one, either of foreign birth or foreign parentage?
and every man now an American. Representatives of fourteen na
tionalities have in truth become "Americans?All." The melting pot
has melted.
That is descriptive of the "Americans???" detachment of the
United States army which has been touring the principal cities of the
country after thrilling the people of New York for many weeks by
a scries of drills. Thousands attended the exhibitions given by
these soldiers who, until a few months ago, were just plain illiterates
???including the one native American.
Since last May they have been under the instruction of the re
cruit educational center, at Camp Upton, New York. While they
were undergoing training in the duties of the soldier, they also were
taught the rudiments of an English education. Today 'every man is
able to read and write, to sustain ordinary conversations on almost
every variety of topic, is able to read and understand military orders
in English. And from the army viewpoint, not the least of the ac
complishment is the remarkable proficiency of the men in military
?Irills.
' But standing out so far and so prominently that the recruit educa
tional center and army officers do not need to point to it, because
everyone who sees the detachment recognizes it at sight, is the
thorough Americanization of these sons of fourteen foreign nations.
That is the one feature which commands the admiration of every
genuine American as it undoubtedly has that of every soldier of the
?"Americans?All" detachment. It is a perfect example of what can
be accomplished in even a few months by a well directed system of
?trainfiBT m Americanization.
The Department of Agriculture informs us that the world's supply
of food animals is about the same as before the war. Publication of

The exxmrry child still has his dog or her pet lamb.
Time was when nearly every town boy had his pup, and the
sight of a dozen tumbling children cascading over a great benevo

iojojf to school chaperoned by a Newfoundland was as common as

for his own a* a bey 'emembers tfce dog with as sincere devotion

fcts fondled and reared baby chicks has early been sanctified in the

Rrtne, loyalty and high-bred patience, such a horse was almost as
euch an aid to Christian character as grandmother, with her Dutch
ralbes, and spicy cookies, and a vast understanding of the needs of
fce juvenile stomach.
And the spindle-legged calves, and the woolly colts, and the
tigs that learned to follow yoa about the place like poppies, and the
nake-believe, fierce old gander and the tame pigeons, and the
coofly-wttted fat sheep, all these 'dumb ones under the benevolent
lominion of the farm family were loyal vassals, whose virtues re
sected in the tenderness and patience and kind-heartedness of all
riio lived with them.
Man needs animals just as he needs children. He requires the

"In fact." Senator McNary said.
??sugar may go to almost any price

"The fact is. however, that even

To remove possible opposition In
the Senate and expedite Congres
sional action on his bill extending
the life of the sugar equalisation
board through 1920 Senator McNary
is redrafting the measure? eliminat

"*I hope that In Its new form I can

PRESIDENT'S ACTION
NEEDED BY BOARD
The United States Sugar Corpora
tion is a stock company, all the
stock of which is held by the Presi
dent, who must vote authority to
the Sugar Equalization Board for
all purchase a
Karl y In August an agreement had
been reached by Cuban producers,
and the 1920 crop offered the Equal
isation Board at a price approxi
mately 1 cent per pound over that
paid last year?5.086 cents. '
The Equallzat-on Board requested
authority from the President tn en
ter into the contract, but failed to
receive .t.
In the meantime. European buy
ers appeared in Cuba and began
bidding up prices. As a result th?"
Cuban offer was withdrawn nn Sep
tember 25 and to date about one
third of Cuba's next crop has been
contracted for elsewhere.
There is hope that if Congress
acts quickly extending the life of
the sugar board and specifically re
questing tbe President to vote It
authority to make the purchase
that the major part of the remain
ing two-thirds may yet be obtained
for this country
Even if it is ?nd we get all that
Is now sold elsewhere we can hope
for no greater sugar supplies In
1920 than In 1919 and with the per
capita demand for sugar In the
United States Increased from t*0 to
92 pounds per year, as ft has since
the advent of prohibition, the sugar
problem is one that will remain
with us for at least another twelve
months.
And unless the government has
control of the supply And can re
strain prices there Is no telling to
what level prices will go.
