SUNDAY MORNING, MARCH 17, 1918 The pleasure a man of honor en joys in the consciousness of having performed his duty is a reward he pays himself for al lhis pains. -Jean de La Bruver. How to Save Flour We offer this merely as a suggestion to the food administration for an improvement of the means of conserving wheat. While the present plan of re quiring purchase of wheat flour to be accompanied by purchases of certain cereals of equal weight, corn meal rice etc., conserves wheat flour, it encourages a waste of a great deal of the other foods. And in the cases of some people who are sufficiently wasteful and lacking in patriotism, the plan does not really conserve flour. Such people can buy more wheat flour then they need if they only buy of the other cereals in the same quantity at the same time, though the government has taken such precautions as it could against hoarding. We have made some Inquiry concerning the work ing of this plan and we find that in many households these enforced purchases have been stored away, probably never to be used. Much of the rice, coin . meal and other cereals will be destroyed by mice, weevil and other agencies; some of these foods will be fed to chickens and other, will be cooked, half eaten and thrown away. We recognize( of course, that thoroughly loyal people will not waste, but the whole population is not loyal. Another part which thinks it is loyal and is willing to make any sacrifice that seems necessary to the winning of the war, has not yet realized that the time has come for even that small sacrifice. If the money spent for these wasted foods was saved and spent for war saving stamps or bonds, the total amount would be gratifying and surprising. As it Is, the wa6te which is thus made possible by the enforced purchasing plan, is far greater in many households than it was in the old ante-bellum days when half the high cost of living was carted away by the garbage man. Now, for the suggestion which we know will not be received with joyous acclaim the card system. That has been vaguely threatened but there has seemed to be no serious intent to apply it in this country. But other countries have been forced to it. It was first employed in Germany and was afterward adopted In Great Britain. When those governments ! are confronted with the necessity of conserving some one or more kinds of food they decree that such foods can be purchased only by cards issued by the govern ment, limiting the amount and frequency of purchase. The card system is hatefu we know, but its bad effect is only psychological. As a nation we must come to disregard psychological things and be pre pared to face solid, material facts. There is not much psychology among the Germans. Beside, the card system would impose no hardship on the users of flour, the loyal, the disloyal or the merely unloyal. The loyal would not be restricted to less wheat flour than they now use. They would use as they do now in about the same proportion as is now required to be purchased with flour, the other cereals. The disloyal and the unloyal could not then by means of wasteful and extravagant purchases of the other required cereals, acquire great quantities of wheat flour. They would find themselves compelled to use, and not waste these cereals. St. Patrick's Day This is a great holiday, a national holiday, an in ternational holiday. Today will be singularly dis- tinguishedT a day peculiarly sacred to a country which is not a nation, though for some time it has been trying to be Island. Today is St. Patrick's Day, March 17. It has not always been honored as It will be today. The stores, shops and public offices all over this land will be closed. The saloons also will be closed In the states of Arizona, Kansas, Washington, Oregon, Maine and many others. There will be services in the churches of not only America but of all civilized countries. Even In such a barbaric land as Germany there will probably be some special observance of the day. Factories, except those engaged in war work will be silent today. Parks and pleasure grounds everywhere will resound with the joyful shouts of children. The. news carriers of Tho Republican have chosen this sacred day as the time for an annual picnic and will celebrate it on the desert. They will note the absence of snakes and that will recall to them that there are no snakes in Ireland, thanks to the beneficent and adverse influence of the good Saint Patrick. It is going to be a great holiday. There will not be another like it for seven or eight years by which time we hope the reptiles will also be all driven out of Germany; that that country will be as free from snakes as Ireland or the prohibiten states of this .union. Ds It Now The figures showing the thrift allotment for this county among tne various districts and precincts, printed in The Republican yesterday morning, af fords the first definite notion of the task which has been cut out for each, and it shows that so far as the reports disclose, the monthly apportionment has been met in but very few cases. Phoenix has more nearly done so by raising approximately $90,000 in three months, Its monthly allotment being $31,036.67. The quotas given in the table of yesterday are ar ranged on a basis of population. Many precincts have sent Into the county head quarters, ' enthusiastic reports of accomplishments, but when they have been sized up with the quotas they have been found to have fallen short- With the information afforded by the published quotas the workers in the various districts will know what they are expected to do and they will do it. . So far as known, there is only one district in the state that has exceeded its quota for the last three months, gone over the .top and . raided the enemy's trenches. That is Miami. Now, that the precincts of this county know where they stand, we have no doubt that they will come to the front as the community has always done in the home stretch. And'now, the home stretch is a long way off; we have completed only the first quarter. It is not necessary and it Is not well to wait until the beginning of the last three months or late in the last three months to make a burst of speed. Do it now. An Evasion of Duty The chief objection, to the legislation requested by Provost Marshal General Crowder, to amend the selective draft law is directed against the prpposed apportionment plan based on the number of men in class A of the selective draft registration, that is, the number of men in this class 'who were not taken in the first draft. The dispatches have not stated whence this objection comes or on what it is based, but cer tainly no plan could be more fair. The plan decided upon for the first draft was strikingly unfair since.it was based on populations which include many who were immune against the draft. And such persons were not evenly distributed among the states. Foreigners could not be drafted, yet they contributed to the determination of the number of drafted men from the states where they happened to be. As a result of this plan, the south ern states where the foreign population is much smaller than in the northern statesf contributed com paratively lightly to the" national army. Arizona was harder hit than any other state. It had not only a very large foreign population but a considerable Indian population, none of which could be included in the draft, though it formed a part of the basis of the quota. Beside this, the population arbitrarily fixed for Arizona was greatly in excess of the number of citizens, foreigners and Indians in the state. How this population was. arrived at has never been explained satisfactorily. In consequence of this arrangement Arizona gave to the national army a number of men much larger than any other state according to the proportion of its real population as determined by the census bu reau in 1913. It will, of course, be credited for this excess in the making of the next selection. But returning to the objection to the provost mar shal general's proposed change of the. basis for mak ing apportionments, we can only suspect that that objection is selfish and unpatriotic, inspired by the desire of congressmen to shield their own states which were unjustly favored by the former apportionment an attempted evasion of a fair share of the burden of the war. 1 IX IS Y P H Beware of Exaggeration A coast newspaper chronicling a visit to Los Angeles by Cyrus H. K. Curtis the publisher, says, "Needless to say, Mr. Curtis would not have achieved the great things to his credit were he not a typical American." That is a nice thing to say of Mr. Curtis and of Americanism, a compliment to both, but it smacks too much of the era of the Jefferson Bricks, that unfortunate period when Charles Dickens visited America and gathered material for "American Notes" which he used again in "Martin Chuzzlewit." It has been the shame of thoughtful and discerning Amer icans that they could see in this caricature of Amer ican life of that period a distinct outline of actual conditions in this country at the time of Dickens' visi an outline which has not entirely disappeared and which we confess, has not yet been greatly obscured. Mr. Curtis, it is true Is a typical American and he is a successful publisher. If there had been no successful publishers who were not Americans we would recognize some relation between these two fuels in the life of Mr. Curtis. But there have been many other successful publishers of many nations. Amons them we may mention Lord Northcliffo of Great Britian, probably the greatest publisher of his or any other generation. We are also confronted by tire disturting fact that there are a good many typical, patriof'c Amer icans, we know hundreds of them, who are not suc cessful publishers and who are not pre-eminently successful in any line of endeavor except in the art obeing good Americans. The sentiment which directed the foregoing tribute to Mr. Curtis is a worthy one as to intent but it has been a mischievous one in many ways, not only to the people of America but also to the people of other nations where it has been allowed to run riot. We believe there is not a great nation or a near-great nation on the face of the earth whose citi zens do not feel that they are superior to the people of any other nation. Americans feci tnat way, so do the Germans, so do the English and, we are told, so do the Mexicans. It is a natural sentiment and a part of it, a well-regulated part, is essential to na tionalism. But it should not be perverted or ex aggerated to 'the extent of putting us into a state of serenity and false security against a time when our patriotism, our courage, our skill and our stead fastness may be given a supreme test. It was the exaggeration of this sentiment, the belief that any one good,, natural born American, without preparation and without training could "lick" any two men of any other nation, that was largely responsible for our. unpreparedness when we went to war. We had heard that we could raise an. "army of a million men over night" and we believed it, though such a thing had never been tried. . RESULTS, NOT EXCUSES, ARE WANTED Frederick Winslow Taylor,, the father of Scien tific Management, always said in his famous lecture, printed now for the first time in the March Ameri can Magazine:- "What your employer wants is. results, not rea sons. He wants you to-get there, and he is not interested in your explanation . of w;hy you failed to get there. There is one saying which we have all used since childhood, and which has had no little part in the failure of unsuccessful men. We have all of us said: 'I have done the best that I know how; no one could expect any more of me.' Now, whenever a man fails to get the result that his employer asks for he should feel intense chagrin and disappoint ment, instead of feeling satisfied because he has done the 'best he knows how.' What we are in the world for is continually to learn to do better than we know how. And be sure that in ninety-nine out of one hundred cases your employer has very little interest in hearing that you have done the 'best you know how, when you have failed. "Andrew Carnegie came back from England one summer, and found thaht one of his superintendents had made an unusually large profit in his plant. He wrote this man a check for fifteen thousand dollars as a gift. Another of his superintendents had lost money, and when this man started to explain to Mr. Carnegie the reasons for this loss, Carnegie said: 'Oh, John, don't bother about telling me any reasons. One single reason is good enough. Just tell me that you are a fool; that'll do.' " It appears now that the original Maximalist was little Oliver Twist. Boston Herald. L SECRETARY'S VISIT Republican A. P. Leased Wire! WITH THE AMERICAN ARMY IN France. Tuesday, March 12. After weeks of rain, snow, wind and murky weather there came to the American front today its first bath of genial spring sunshine. The ssies were cloud less arid in the moderate temperature that prevailed sweaters were dis carded by the men for the first time since last summer, while in the vil lages where they are billeted and in tne cantonments in the training area, the camps were decorated with rolls of bedding being given an airing. Men and horses basked in the sunshine in the streets and on the hillsides a grateful experience after the winter ;amp chill. Everywhere one. could see equipment ung out to dry, tent laps and hut win dows . open and hospital patienU breathing the sweet spring air.

Airplanes in Flocks Unrer the sunshine nit, the still at mosphere airdromes all along tha line routed flocks of planes both or. trial nd on serious missions, and every- .ncre there was expectant readiness for an enemy offensive if it should iicyc-iop. The troODx both ,in tro frr tha training areas are cn the tiptoe of expectation for the arrival of Secretary of War Baker, th3 presence of whom in i ranee was announced in th3 Paris orning newsoaners and tor.U- the hole army by surprise. Word of the secretary's presence in France was spread rapidly by telephone' from the bases to the furthermost outposts. Of ficers in villages at outlying roints stopped the newspaper motors and SKea tor definite word when Mi- Baker would arrive. "The old man will find us ready to pass inspection," it was said.

If undisturbed it steadily increases through accretions of interest, and is al ways available in time of need. It often happens when money is needed that an in vestment can not be immediately realized upon without a material shrinkage in value. The investment .of money calls for a certain familiarity with values and conditions which can only be obtained by long and intelligent study. Tempted by the expectation of in creased income, persons too often put their savings into investments of which they can know little and which in the end prove grievous disappointments.
