500,000 Lives How Valu able? Italy's Scrap of Paper. We Break the Bad News. About Time to Come Home. By ARTHUR BRISBANE. (Copyright 1119.) Do you know a man able to bay bonds that has not bought any, or too few? Be sure of your facts, then send his 'name to the loan committee of your neighborhood. After the drive is over, those that have thought the war and the saving of so many lives NOT worth paying for will have a chance to explain. Thjs is the last public loan, the last chance to take an interest in the country! problem. When the work is over, it will be only fair to give credit to those that DO and those that do NOT buy the bonds. These Government securities are sold to pay the expense of wind ing up die war. It was done ex Sensively, extravagantly; It had to e done in that way. m The quick action, hurried sand ing of troops, food, ships, ammu nitionf caused the war to end at least a year sooner than it would have done otherwise. When it ended oux men were being pushed up against tie machine guns very rapidly. Every opportunity was given them to make up for lost time by getting shot If jthe war -had lasted another year it would have cost the lives of at least five hundred thousand more young men. Whoever buys these last Govern ment securities expresses in cash the importance he attaches to half a million American lives. The man to whom such a saving of life niakes no difference buys no bonds. His name should be known, and will be known after the drive ends. There will Be some Interesting pages about these times in future histories. The United States not only takes part In European affairs, but runs those affairs, and makes itself the International umpire of the world. France, England, and Italy had a solemn, secret agreement. France and England needed Italy's help td beat Germany. To Italy the; French and English promised, after victory, to give certain territory, then Austrian. The territory included the Adriatic port of Flume. That agreemeat was as solemnly executed as any treaty ever exist ing. It was asr solemn as the treaty between Germany and Bel glum which Germany violated, when she went through Belgian , territory. fcWj upon a statement signed by nhcrt-PrestaBR?5rtheI?nltpd sumjbb, me .r renuu-cajsiuiu-.iui,uiui secret treaty js Drusneaasiae. Italy is told she cannot have what was promised her, because condi tions are changed; little nations are born, they have rights, they need a port on the Adriatic, and Flume is to be, not Italian, as promised, but Jugo-Slavonic. The United States has broken no treaty, for it was not a party to the secret treaty of London be tween Italy and her allies. But it is the President of the United States, who Is chosen to break the bad news to Italy: "You cannot have what your allies promised you." Clemenceau writes a letter to Italy through former Premier Luz zatti, saying, "French policy is not a scrap of paper." Thus France repudiates responsibility for break ing faith -with Italy. England has probably cleared her skirts pri vately of the bad faith charge, and Americans whose President signed the statement repudiating the treaty incur the dislike. There comes another complica tion in the statement that Admiral Andrews is in the Adriatic with orders to use the United States fleet to preserve order. The Adri atic is far from our responsibili ties as they existed before the war. A fleet told to keep other nations from disorder is apt to have its hands full. You read that Japan is express ing great sympathy for Italy on the breaking of her agreement, and that has its meaning. Japan is angry because Paris did not bap tize her people snow white, or something "equally good." The dis satisfied get together. Germany and Austria, facins: a dose of peace medicine seventy-five thousand words long, are "much encouraged" by the row among al lies that starts the peace concert. With Japan and Italy sympathiz ing, Russia ready to make trouble anywhere, and able to finance it, Germany and Austria delighted to see some ''scraps of paper" float ing about Paris, the vision of eternal peace seems vague. This country would do well if it could arrange some kind of fare well "God bless you all" state ment and come home to attend to business. There is work to do risht here, for Mexico officially declares that she does not recognize any Mon roe doctrine and objects to its be ing put into the peace covenant Mexico knows well that ordinar ily her troublings and objections could be quickly smoothed out A few regiments, armed motors, nnl flying machines from this country would make of Mexico a very good boy. , The Mexican restlessness may indicate that she has had recently more promises of U.

Having worn th comfortable army uniform for nearlr two years, Mr. Cobb's soul is filled with repugnance at the sight of "Ion pants." He yearns for a return to the knee breeches of our forefathers He would make de rlgeur for men generally the roomy knickerbockers of the golf course, and he moves to amend the fashionable evening co tumc by striking out the trousers a the knee, and substituting iherefur silk stockings and silver buckles. Mr. Cobb believes that ae ha launched his crueade at the psycho logical moment. He points out thai esveral million sensible young Amen cans, who have for two years been en joying the comfort of short trousers, will prove ready converts to his new style. TODAY leidoscope. You cannot tell how the pattern will be arranged on the next whirl. A few more whirls such as this country has been giving Europe lately might give us a- problem more difficult and .engrossing than the mere settling with fine phrases of the affairs of other nations. This country sent two million men and ten thousand millions of dollars to Europe, ate imitation bread, built fleets of ships, turned itself inside out to help nations fighting each other three thousand miles away. And at this moment this nation is as well hated by na tions that it helped with men. money, and food, as by nations that it helped to conquer. Moral: Stay home and mind your own business, or, if you can't do that, COME home and mind your own business as soon as possible.

Samuel Gompers, president of the American Federation of Labor, is suffering from a fractured twelfth rib. Asido from this, he sustained no ill effects from the collision between a taxi cab in which he was riding yester day and a street car. A bulletin issued today by his physician said: "Mr. Gompers passed a comfortable night; pulse and temnerature normal; conditions favorable in every way." lr. C. R. Hancock, attending the la bor leader, said there was nothing alarming in Gompers' condition.. He sat up in bed and joked with doctors and nurses. He also ate a hearty breakfast. Dr. Hancock said he must have absolute quiet for several days. Mrs. Samuel Gompers, seriously, ill at her home here. Is not to be told of the serious accident which befell her husband In New York yesterday. Mrs. Gompers recently suffered a second stroke of paralysis, and, ac cording to Secretary Frank Morrison, of the unions' federation Iire. today, "is In such a nervous state that she would unduly worry about Mr. Gom pers' condition. All newspapers are being kept from her." Morrison believes Gompers' accident is not very serious, and expects him to have recovered 'in time to attend the meeting of the executive council of the federation here May 9.
