no part. It was a matter purely within the functions
of the board.
Enthusiasm is that temper of the
mind in which the imagination has
got the better of the judgment.
We axe prone in mania loquendl to indulge in the
obvious. In addressing a delegation of Polish -American
citizens, (We still have, you see, the hyph
enated amons'Vis,) Secretary Colby on Thursday stated
that the "American government would support Polish
independence to the full extent of the power confided
in the executive." Certainly. We are all for that
and if there is not enough of that power, we have no
doubt the American people would add to it, the power
which is reserved to the legislative branch of the
government which directly represents the people to
whom the greater power is reserved. We want the
president in this case to exercise all the power vested
in him, but we want him to exercise no power not so
vested or regularly loaned to him, either in behalf of
the independence of Poland or in any other thin
good or bad, for that would be bad for this govern
ment in that the nicely adjusted balance of powers
would be disturbed. In a rather querulous tone, as
sumed, we suppose,- for partisan political purposes,
Mr. Colby informed the delegation that "there were
those in this country opposed, to any intervention
which calls for active effort." And he added: We
cannot go to the relief even of Poland provided "the
view prevails that we have no concern in anything
beyond our national borders. The question you see
In its larger and true aspect is a political question."
That is, Mr. Colby means it is a partisan question.
In the following language he tells the delegation, in
effect, that the independence of Poland can be made
sure and secure only by a majority of American citi
zens including those of Polish extraction, voting the
democratic ticket next November:
I call your attention to the fact that the
attitude of this government can only be the '
attitude of the people and you as American citi
. zens have the power to determine the trend and
the weight of public opinion.
Thus is Poland Injected into American politics.
Next week it may "be' Rumania, the following week
Bulgaria, again, Turkey and finally, the American
people before the presidential campaign is ended
may be called upon to settle again the Balkan mud-
!e. .We may thus find ourselves strangely em-
bairassed, with old party lines disarranged, wiped
out and forgotten amid our foreign entanglement.
The Bulgo-Americans, the Turko-Americans and the
Graeco-Americans may be flying at each others
throats and crowd away from the polls pure Ameri
cans who would like the privilege of voting on purely
American questions.
Perhaps the relations between France and Great
Britain will become so strained before our presidential
campaign is ended that the Anglo-Americans and the
Franco-Americans will dispose of the controversy at
the polls in our forty-eight states and when it is
all over, the will of the people will have been de
clared not only as to their choice of a president and
congress, but as to all the political affairs of the
But the division in this country concerning our
duty to Poland as described by Mr. Colby does not
exist. At any rate it has not been made apparent.
The country we believe is in agreement with the
stand taken in Mr. Colby's recent note to the Italian
ambassador expressing our sympathy with Poland,
cur willingness to assist. We have heard no objec
tion from any 'quarter to the suggestion that we
furnish Poland munitions and extend credit to it.
All that is within the constitutional power of the
executive. Whether or not the president could sen 4
an army to Poland or would have to apply to the
people for added power, -is not quite certain, but no
application has been made or proposed.
There is nothing to prevent the people of this
country from intervening in behalf of Poland, just
as there was nothing to prevent their intervention
in behalf of Belgium, something the same executive
declined to do. All the people of the United States
ask is continued permission to exercise their judg
ment as to the time at which or the causes for which
they may intervene. These should not be made
issues in partisan politics.
An Inexcusable Blunder
An especially gross, inexcusable and irritating
typographical blunder appeared in a headline in this
paper y esterday morning, in a part of a caption of an
article in which was give'n the record in prison and
on parole of a man who violated his parole the second
time by an attempt to commit murder.
The article was in reply to reports circulated
in the northern part of the state calculated to reflect
upon the official conduct of the governor with respect
to this case. J
It was the purpose of the article to show that
the governor was in no sense responsible for the
freedom of the convict to commit his latest crime.
The caption as it was written was "Governor Had
No Part." It appeared as "Governor Had "A" Part,"
a form violative both of the fact, and of the technique
of headline writing which forbids the use of the
articles "the" "a" or "an".
The facts set out were that the convict who had
been sentenced to the state prison for an indeter
minate period of from one to three years, earned his
parole in a road camp and was properly paroled at
the end of about a year and a half. Soon thereafter
he violated his parole by an attempt to assault a
woman and was sent back to prison. There ac
companied his re-commitment three affidavits as to
Ms crime, two of them being made by peace officers
of the county where it was committed.
The board of pardons and paroles disregarding
(Prso affidavit?, held that the evidence of violation
of the parole was insufficient and Wt him in further
enjoyment of it- In this action the governor h;id
The Subject of Passports
Noales and El Paso are complaining of the new
passport regulation, the charge for passports, the
$10 fee for having: passports vised and the delay at
tending the unwinding of red tape necessary to pro
cure a passport. There is no apparently good reason
for these embarrassing and expensive regulations,
which greatly interfere with the transaction of legiti
mate business between border towns on either side
of the line. We have seen no reason put forward
for the adoption of the new regulations. The gov
ernment may need the money but surely there are
other and better ways of getting it.
There is another class of citizens upon whom
the regulations rest more grievously but we do not
appear in their behalf. They are the thirsty Ameri
can citizens with whom the water on their side of
the line does not agree, and who are not pleased with
the achievements of American coffee cooks and tea
brewers. It is pretty hard on a man when he wants
to go out of his country for something palatable and
satisfying to drink, to have his. passport vised every
few minutes at a cost of 510 per vise.
Little choice is left him between quenching his
thirst in Mexico or submitting to the extortions of the
bootleggers on this side of the line. From a financial
point of view it is as broad as it Js long but by no
means square. .
The citizen is tempted to turn to the profiteer
Zing bootlegger rather than to his profiteering gov
ernment. He sees now why there is so much bol
ehevlsm in the world.
It's No Wonder
Up to the moment when this eloquent editorial
pencil impinges upon the pristine purity of this
limited supply of white paper which, with difficulty
we induce the job department to cut for us in
lengths of nine and a fraction inches by seven and a
fraction inches, it is observable that Old General
Apathy Is the chief figure in the campaign. That is
true not only of it in the sector of Arizona but along
the whole battle front from San "Diego to Portland,
Maine, and criss cross, from Seattle to Tampa.
The causes are not far to seek or difficult to
find. In our own theater of the war, people are
tired of seeing candidates and would welcome the
return of the bookagent, the distributor of lightning
rods, or the bubonic plague itself. They threaten
to have nothing to do with the campaign and to
convey their disapproval of the whole business by
absenting themselves from the polls.
In the national campaign there is even greater
reason why nobody should care a continental.
Neither, or should .we say, when there are so many
of them, no, candidate has been able to sound the
keynote, ring the toscin or wind the horn loud enough
to awakenthe electorate. The people are not throw
ing their hat3 into the air to be covered with the
sand which the candidates are pawing into the air.
The front windows are not filled with portraits tot
candidates. ' .7 ,
There is confusion in the mind of the average
voter as to what each candidate and each party
really stands for. And the confusion seems to -reach
all the way up and down. The most that
we can learn of the beliefs and intentions of the
candidates of either of the great parties we learn
from the other. We ha,ve nothing first hand and,
naturally, we doubt it.

The prayer which contains the petition: "Give
us this day our daily b-ad" is the prayer which be
gins with: "Our Father."
If God is our Father, we are brothers.
The fatherhood of God Involves the brother
hood of man.
And so a loaf of bread is behind the greatest of
all creeds and the best of all religions, the creed that
God is our Father, the religion that we are brothers.
Bread is tie staff of life. It deals with primitive
hunger. It meets universal need. At the very thres
hold of existence the bread question presents itse'f,
and in doing so it announces at the very threshold
of existence human brotherhood. 1
Brotherhood is not the product of evolution. It
is primeval. It is not something civilization has
wrought out. It is essential to civilization. Its recog
nition is a prerequisite to progress . God has built
kinship info our blood, and announced the oneness
of the race in our earliest hunger. Bread taught me-i
that they could not live alone, and it is still teaching
thin earliest lesson of human relations.
Hunger levels all barriers. It wipes out all Tlis
tinctions. Culture, wealth, position, power, all play
out before hunger. It is the great commoner.
We cannot get away from the bread question,
and so we cannot lay brotherhood permanently on
the shelf.
W e may ignore it for awhile, we may forget it for
a season, but the day comes when hunger brings us
to our senses, and a slice of bread says: "None of
us livoth to himself, and no man dieth to himself."
The rare is one family, and the world dec-lines to
maintain a solitude.
That pallid face ag.iinst the pane is your kins
ma n's.
That wan child on the edge of the slum belongs
to your own family.
This is what your rlaily hre.nl says ns it lifts on
the lips of hunger Die old prayer: "Our Father."

Eighty-first Trip
Grand Canyon, Ariz.,
v Aug. 17, 1920. .
Editor Camel'sback,
Chief, I bet you can't guess where I
am at. I am siting on a flat rock that
sticks out with my feet dangling around
and if a guy down on the ground be
low me wanted to tickle the souls of
my feet he would have to have a
feather on the end of a stick 2000 feet
long. So I ain't worrying much about
some smart alex waking me up by that
kind of a stunt. And another thing,
chief, if the kid was to get playful and
push mc off here, I'd sure have a
lcung time in which to tell her -what I
thought of her before 'i struck bottom.
That gives you some idear of what the
Grand Canyon is like.
The only trouble is that when they
invented the dictinery they dident fig
ger they would ever be such a thing
as the Grand Canyon and so I can't
find no words that can be put together
and describe it. All you do is to tear
your hair and get red in the face and
your eyes bulge out and and you froth
at the mouth and then you get weak
in the knees and shaky and dizzy and
you turn to your wife and say, "Gawd,
ain't it wonderful!" And for once't In
her life she agrees with you. That's
why all married ccSuples should visit
the Grand Canyon.
As I say, they ain't no words to de
scribe it. After reading the display
advts. in The Republican, my idear of
something stupendous, gigantic, mam
moth, marvelous and all such is a sale
at one of our clothing or dept. stores
Where they have a bargain sale with
10 per cent off. And if one of them is
stupendous, etc., then we ought to raise
the ante in describing the Grand Can
yon. Only the ad. writers in Phoenix
have, gone the limit in adgatives and
the Grand Canyon is out of it until
we get a new deal in adgatives. So
you can see what the world owes to the
advt. writers of Phoenix.
Now, chief, wile it is true that if I
was to fall off this rock, I would drop
2,000 feet, that is only half the story.
If I was to have any more rubber left
in my neck after looking at this canyon
for three days, and if I should aecl
dently land on .my neck, I would bounce
off . this first platowe and go down
another 2.000 feet in a narrow gorge
and land in the Colorado river, where
I would have at least half a chance to
sve myself from certain death, as I
am a pretty good swimmer, if I do
say it myself. That will give you a
little better idear of how deep down
this canyon goes. I tell you, - chief, it
sure is some drop from the brink to
the drink. It would compare very
favorable with the ruts along the car
tracks on Wash. fit.
They's many a wonderful site to 6ee
along the canyon if you got the jack
to put up. The peepul from all over
the world comes here to get their eye
ful and their pockets empty. And it
beats all what suckers the public la
and the kind of stuff they falls for ana
calls it wonderful. Frinstance. chief,
they's a bank of white rock that slopes
down from a flat table land and on
this white bank is a big figger "7" In
black rock. And when the gide points
it out all the people says, "Wonderful:
Marvelous! How wonderful nature is!"
And all such stuff. Now, chief, to my
ay of thinkirg, nature could of been
more wonderful if it had a mind to by
puting a figger "11" along side of the
"7" ana then right above them on the
table land dump two white lime stone
cubes with black dots on them. Then
you could get something out of whatl
they was driving at ana you, wouia
have some right to say it was wonder
ful. Only St just goes to show what
these suckers of tourists fall for.
Speaking or the tourists. I think the
Phnx. Chamber of C. is losing some
swell chances of advt. the town and
perhaps we could land some of these
rich suckers. For examp.: They got
a tellascope here in what they calls
a look out tower and it's free use to
the public, which uss it every hour
of the day. Way down on the Brite
Angels Trail they's a cLhmp of green
and a little house that looks as big
as your thumb. The . guide spots
the tellascope on the house and says
with a devlish grin, "See If you can
read the letters on that sign down by
the house. "And maybe a swell looking
jane will step yp and look and say
after an hour or two, "Oh, yes! It
says. Don't Forget to Visit Knobb Bros.
Studio Near the Toll Gate." Just think
of a chance like that. That's a nobby
idear of Knobb Bros., but if the Phnx.
C of C. was on the job the tourists
could Just as well read on the sign
some really fetching ad like tniS'
"Phoenix Must And Will Have a Main
Line Railroao." Kh. chief? And I
would go still further and have "ttfe
signs stuck around the hills and brush
in this canyon with other high class
advt. slogans on them. Something like
this: "Phoenix, the City of Homes;
"Come Take A Ride on the Indian
School Car; "The Bright Angel Trail
Is Tame,': etc, etc. And these here
red cliffs and rock walls would look
much better if we cfculd have them
painted with statistics on Phoenix and
Ariz. The canyon is in Ariz, and we
ought to get some benefits out of it.
Why. if it was in California, chief, they
would of build a fence aroundit and
charge admission to see it. Us Art
zonians is pikers.
The canyon is in its wild state now
and could be improved in many ways,
like I pointed out above, so as to be
a money maker for us Arizonians, in
stead of for Fred Harvey.
Well, chief, I m getting dizzy sitting
up on this reck, and one foot is gone
to sleep. Besides that I dropped a
pencil half hr. ago and I can Just
barely see it still falling. That kinda
gives me a dizzy spell and so I better
say ta-ta and pull out of here.
