If the entire world was governed
by one country there would be no
other to declare war against. We
would then, perhaps, pick a scrap

that there might be fights between

war is as terrible as that of nation
If one nation is to rule the world
we naturally want it to be the one
that will .hand out the most justice.
Forget your nationality and deal with
The world contains several com
panies of nations. France is-a com
pany of nations with her some 20
possessions. Germany has about 10.
Portugal about a dozen. England is
the largest company of nations, hav
ing some 65 possessions. It is not
strange that by far the largest com
pany of nations is also the one that
hands out the most justice, with the
possible exception of the U. S.?
If one nation ruled the entire world
I think our dream of an international
arbitration board would materialize.
We could then have a world's con
gress with representatives from all
over the world under one leader.
I think the U. S. is only a sample
of what the whole world will be some
day. A world's congress without a
leader would be about as useless

WILLIE, THE HOIST. Have you
seen the fine editorial in the Chicago
AWAmerican of Aug. 27.
lW TY!,n -cnn hlamn "WHlte tho TTntst"
for awarding the prize (?) to a writer
who can puff him up as this writer
This editorial is entitled, "The Rap
id Growth of Hearst's Magazine" and
goes on to tell that a prize of $100
was offered to the readers of the
magazine for the best letter explain
ing the success of Hearst's Magazine.
The letter that won the prize is print
ed and the principal features of the
letter are as follows: "The name it
self Inspires confidence and interest"
"The public will follow a publication
to which the greatest publisher in,
America gives his name." "The form
of the publication, making possible
the printing of large and beautiful
pictures, is another causes of success.
For this is the day ofe picture and
of the eye." Can anyJone deny Hearst
the privilege of thinking that the pic
tures are his greatest asset? As was
truly stated in The Day Book a few
days ago Hearst's papers would be
read by very few people if it were not
for his cartoonists.
Farther on we read: "The name of
Hearst is of itself a source of energy."
"Its success has been due to the fact
that the interest, the pleasure, the
profit of the reader have been consid
ered, and not the profit of the individ
uaL" Can you imagine Hearst, Gary
t ai in a business and not consider
ing the profit?'
The letter is finished with the fol
lowing paragraph: "And if I should
win by any chance the prize which
you have offered let me prove the
sincerity of my admiration for
Hearst's Magazine and the other
Hearst achievements by asking you
to give the money to some worthy
charitable cause and not to me.
(Signed) An Editor."
The writer then furnishes the fol
lowing P. S.: "You will not print my
name, of course. The publishing
concern by which I am employed
would not exactly appreciate this let
ter." In conclusion I would like to ask:
Is it not considered "shady" for a
newspaper to use its- editorial col
umns to advertise any commodity?
And is this not an advertisement?
I might add that Collier's some
years ago accused Hearst of using
