S !,.-»<> A YK.AH THE OLD AND THE NEW "It is very interesting to me to observe how from every quarter, from every sort of inintl, from every concert of counsel, there comes the suggestion that there must now be, not a balance of power, not one powerfvil group of nations set up against another, but a single, overwhelming, powerful group of nations who shall be the trustee of the peace of the world." In this sentence, spoken by President Wilson in London the other day during the course of an address in which he referred hopefully to agreement between the United St. tes and England on the policies to be determined at the coming peace conference, we see the distinction be tween teh old order of things in the world which crashed to pieces in the great war recently ended, and the new order which is to be established. "Back of us," he declared, in referring to the leaders of the nations which shall establish the new order, "is that imperative yearning of the world to have all disturbing questions quieted, to have all threats against peace silenced, to have just men everywhere come together for a common object." No truer statement was ever made —the war will be won or lost, no matter if a military victory has already been conceded, if the peace conference fails in such an achievement. This is "the final enterprise of humanity," the "incomparable great object" which induced him to "turn away even from the imperative tasks at home to lend such counsel and aid as I could," President Wilson con cluded. And in his words, his championship of these aims, the people of the world see the fruition of their hopes, and they back him up solidly. England and France and Italy as well as our own country, may block its development or force a compromise; but it will not be because the people of the world do not want it. A membership of seven thousand or more in the American Red Cross in this country, as the result of a campaign conducted a month and a half after the conclusion of hostilities, when enthusiasm has ebbed somewhat —* that is the record of which every resident of Thurston county may be proud. By enrolling ourselves on the lists of this great organization of humanity and mercy at the time when the need of our own boys over there is lessening and the call for service among the ruined peoples of the world is paramount—when it is not our own but the other fellow who needs our help—we have shown ourselves responsive to the world's greater call. We have demonstrated most strikingly that what we sought in this war and what we still seek is the development of the world's affairs upon the basis of true justice, true humanity. THE RECONSTRUCTION CONGRESS Of supreme importance to the state and every resident of it, to see that it is launched in the right channels, is the reconstruction congress that is to be held in Tacoma next week. We may very easily get off on the wrong tangent, not intentionally, perhaps, or designedly; or we may wake up a few days or weeks later and find out some group of men has "hung something" on us. We need, therefore, to be eternally awake ano also sincerely and closely interested in what is done. For our part we have not the remotest idea that it is the design of any one or group of persons to "slip something over" at that congress. On the other hand we have been particularly gratified to note the breadth and vision and real earnestness and desire to be of service during a critical stage In the state'B history, that has been displayed by the men who are leading that movement and the other endeavors to handle the issues of the after-the-war period. We believe they are sincerely striving for a pro gram that will be of benefit to all. Our only thought is that all of us should co-operate with them in attending to that end, and should be ever watchful in its interests. It is only a short time now until the biennial session of the state legis lature convenes. Chief among the questions it will have before it will be the reconstruction problems, the general policy the state shall pursue as well as the details of it. One of these and one that probably will reach high prominence as well as importance, is the state road policy for the next few years. There are individuals and influences at work now seeking to harmonize the different proposals to the end that a definite, satisfactory plan may be presented. Let us hope, even though we do so somewhat forlornly, that they succeed. Official announcement was made by the officer in charge, in a talk to the Illinois draft boards this week, that the government proposes to keep on searching out the draft evaders and slackers until each is located and punished. No other course would be right or fair or just, not from the standpoint of law enforcement only, but chiefly from the standpoint 01 the two million men who were "over there," the two million who were under arms herew and the millions more who were ready to answer their country's call when needed. It is greatly to the shame of Thurston county, in the face of the won derful generosity of the most of its citizens in all the war work "drives" and Liberty Loan campaigns, and the great unselfishness of its women in their Red Crosß work —it is greatly to the shame of the county that it has to stand the accusation of having one or two such reprobates on its rolls. WORK FOR A LEAGUE OF NATIONS The New York World directs attention the fact that for many weeks representatives of the United States and the Allies have been engaged in forming a league of nations. They have not called it a league of nations and little attention has been paid to it, but they are working out the details of the most gigantic International associaion that has ever been under taken. * This new league of nations is seeking to control food, to control raw materials and to control shipping, not in the selfish interest of any particu lar country or any small group of countries but in the general Interest of everyone. The underlying principle is that food must be equitably distrib uted, to the end that nobody starves, and no nation be permitted to go into the open market and bid up the price to the general disadvantage of every body else. The procedure is to be applied to raw materials, and ship ping is to be so apportioned that a condition of economic stability can be established at a time when economic stability is essential to the very life of free government. It Is reported from Paris that as a result of these discussions the final decision may be left to the Peace Conference in relation to such a league of nations as the president has in mind, and that it is possible that the foundations of the league may be laid in the co-operative arrangements that are now dictated by economic necessity. This might easily come about, just as the next practical step In the work of a league of nations may be found in the need for a responsible organization to appoint administrators for many of the territorial by products of the war.

The several churches in this place made a very creditable display of presents for the Sabbath school chil dren as well as some for adults on Christmas Eve and evening.

Beeides these public distri butions, we learn there have been several private trees, among which was one devised by Miss Stella Galli her and the Misses Clark of Steila coom.
