HARDING'S PEACE PLAN
WINS FIRST VICTORY Maximilian Harden, Germany's Foremost Pu blicist, Sees Practical Results in Russia's Pledges and Plea for Recognition. BY MVXIMIIJAN HARDEN', GermnnyV PurraiMt Publicist, By Radio to Ihv .Star. BERLIN, November G.?Prc-sldcnt Harding;'* plan for world peace has won its first victory. Disappointed at Paris, the people asked whether Mr. Harding's hope of solving the Pacific problem by pro tecting China against her monopo listic neighbor and by emphasizing the moral and economic advantage to the world in reducing land and ?sea armament would result merely in amiable words behind which ugly selfishness awaited again a favorable moment How could it be otherwise "when Russia no longer exists in the balanct cu* powers? Even the great est of optimists would have prophe sied c program for the Washington confer-:?ce something like this: En> '1 would swear that she had only t?? mo&t peaceful intentions. Japan ould prove that she was be ing impoverished and that being twenty days away from America she could not and would not think of war. while France through the eloquence of Br.anus and Vivian is. would swear that she did not wish to ke? p a sin gle cannon or single man more than necessary on account of the proximity of sixty million-embittered Germans. After the festive speeches and the protocols, the old game of intrigue between the chief powers would con tinue. nellevri. -In Gen hi* of l*. S. I. myself, have never shared the fear that such a program would be per-, mitted to develop, because I believe in the genius of the United States, which will not let a great moment pass without speaking the word need ed to heal a sick world. American idealism probably regards the renova tion of the human mind in the world today as its duty and calling, and America's healthy realism has prob ably not forgotten how to reckon thirfgs. The tax burdens of today, the stagnation of markets, the in creasing costs" of armies and navies, all tell America that, this cannot go on. Therefore, it seems to me that un less1 some arrangement is made abou international debts and the world ' swept clean of delusive paper and th was opened to intelligent industr and wealth, civilized nations will b completely rtftned by involuntar of goods, caused "bv the ne? ess^rny. cheap mass production.

Russia begs f ? iCe. She asks for recognition. II *m of government will allow tl "dom of economic initiative. In h ess Russia calls for an inte ? UU.T conference. That Foreig VT -?ister Tchitcherin chooses this m tlf o uttipr.'such a cry shows h te be heard by those now gati r at "Washington. This is a problem of culture an economics such as has never bee !?? a&u in the history of mankind. It i so great that the whole world mus V held by it. It is so fertile that i i S ttfeffice for the endeavors of real vsr-well as idealists. The Wash : gton conference will instantly hav fil-m footing *urer than any rhetor! vr dof'mnetitsslf the Russian problen - pforefront of its de ^ation^, conference could the ? ove that "the good-will of the chief u rope*a-r2cnd Asiatic powders does a??t consisftdn reality of hollow decla rations.

If only-^ trrdifferent help and the charity of ooHHjaercial credit is afforded, cen tuivnt will pass before Russia is capaftte of doing her bit for humanity. The proposal which tlie writer out lined during the summer is now pos sible of realization. It is this. Mobili zation of the international army of labor to reconstruct Russia. Ten to twenty producing nations, whose sons were.?.not intimidated by mines or poison gas could easily accomplish as much as the armies did in constant :*?r?l of death.

The mobilization should not take longer than that of a war army. No country should recruit more men than it can readily spare and each should supply the good it has in tx cess The United States has an al mosr unlimited supply of com modities. England has ships and coal. Germany can supply chemicals, potash, agricultural and technical ex perts and machines and be a repair hp*" ? and laboratory.

Number Bitten Less Since Canines Go Unmuzzled. In the flrst three weeks that the dogs of Washington hare been al lowed to go unmuzzled they have proved worthy of the trust placed in them by the Commissioners. When the city heads adopted the order permitting dogs to go with out leash or muzzle from October 9 to July 9, there were some win feared such action would result In many more children being bitten. Health department records show, however, that since October 9 only thirteen persons have been attacked by dogs, whereas twenty-two were bitten during the same period of last year, when muzzles were required.
