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
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 ,
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

NEW YORK. April 2S. Irvin ?
Cobb returns from the war a sartorial
Bolshevik. He is conducting all by
himself a crusade against moderr
masculine attire. 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
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.

NEW TORK, April 28. 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.

The Administration's intention to

matter jal enacting enforcing previ
sions for national prohibition was
seen topay in a statement by At

Discussing the. prohibition amend

"the proper method of enforcement
of that amendment is a matter which

This means, according to "wets"

national' law during the war, if the
peace conference adopts proposals
placed before it at Paris today.
Furthermore, all secrets of. the
German war office must be bared to
permit the allies to discover those re

ex-Kaiser have been pushed by the
French delegates throughout the
conference In face of reported oppo

apathy from some others.
