Pretty impressive figures TWELVE THOUSAND MILLIONS and less than one-quarter of the Income of the United States for a year. Ninety-two ships ordered built in one contract to carry soldiers each of twelve thousand tons. That and the TWELVE THOU SAND MILLION dollar army bill ought to worry the Kaiser, as much as the Spanish germ. Those ninety-two ships will carry on one trip at least three hundred thousand soldiers across the ocean nearly a million in three trips. . And when the war is oyer, they will carry the freight of the United States to and fro under the Ameri can flag owned by the American people. Many things will come out of this jwar, enough to pay for the war. 1 all but the loss of life.

If the children are not well fed, the future America will suf fer. It Is better to have a good race here in the next generation, than to have a few extra tens of mil lions left by rich men to their sons. Third, arrange when the war is over to take care of the fighting men that come back providing for needs of the wounded, so that they need never worry. And finding good jobs at good wages for those that come back able to work. Government ownership of great properties will help this. Gov ernment building of roads, canals, draining of swamps and irrigat ing of deserts will help also. This used to be a country where the Government represent ing all the people spent as it were, a few cents, while a few Individuals through monopolar piled up hun dreds of millions. From now on this will be a Government in which the ener getic few will get all that they are ENTITLED to, and the THOU SANDS OF MILLIONS will be spent by the Government for the people. Request to John D. Rockefeller, jr., who spends Eome of his fath er's millions fighting disease through the admirable Rockefeller Institute: Please send some of your scientists to study that Spanish Influenza, its causes, the possibility of fighting It, and especially of keeping it out of the United States. It Is known that John D. Rocke feller's Idea, which controls his son in the use of the Rockefeller fortune. Is to spend money FOR PREVENTION rather than for the cure of individual cases. Not to cure one or a thousand sick peo ple, but to find a way to prevent millions in future from catching disease that Is the Rockefeller idea. Investigation of this strange dis ease In Europe, sending some of the Rockefeller scientists, gather ed from all over the world, Japan, France and elsewhere, would be a step in the line of prevention. Later, having identified the germ, probably one of those little things that look like a colled spring, now circulating rapidly In the Kaiser's blood, Mr. Rockefeller might put up a small monument to It with this label, "Germ of the Spanish influenza disease, much . enlarged. This monument built Br a grateful Rockefeller, to the germ that made the Kaiser tired or irar. ALLIES GAIN ALONG CZECHS EAGER TO FORM SEPARATE U. S.

"Why ahould not America do similar honor to that lndlmltable race that has bat tled for centuries against Austrian tyranny and which today is making the most profound sacrifices in the cause for which allies are fighting?
