George Pattulli, a magazine writer who has been with General Pershing’s army in France, has paid a tribute to the American fighting men that is wor thy of reproduction in every county in the United States. Says Mr. Pattulli: “The American soldier is about the finest human specimen on top of the earth —rough and ready, grumbling, never giving up; always able to laugh, even at his own plight; a holy terror in a fight; ruthless to an ene&y capa ble of resistance; generous to a fault to a beaten foe; hating nobody, fearing none; with backbone enough to storm hell, and the gentleness to win a child.” France knows this, England knows it, even Germany has a hazy idea that a Yankee doughboy is a combination of an angel from heaven and a devil from hell. Isn’t it about time for Americans to realize the worth of their fighting sons? —Exchange. Nothing Escapes.

EASY TO CURE “NAUGHTINESS” Common-Sense Methods of Dealing With Children Will Always Be Found Effective. A morbid exaggeration and perver sion of the natural desire which all children feel for notice by their eld ers, is held by Thomson to be the cause of abnormal naughtiness in children. These cases are of essen tially the same nature as those of “moral imbecility” in children who are in some degree mentally defective. The proper lines of treatment are clear enough, and when carried out consistently and thoroughly are rap idly and completely successful. They may be summarized as follows: (1) All severe corporal punishment must be stopped—it never does any good. (2) Nobody must ever appear shocked, amused or even surprised at anything a child does. (3) His misdeeds are never to be alluded to, much less de scribed, in his presence; and, lastly, he should be noticed and encouraged in every way when he is good and al together ignored when he is naughty. —British Journal of Children’s Dis eases.

Time was when men engaged in the same line of a. business discussed prices with bated breath, fearful lest someone within range of an ordinary conversational tone of voice objection, which would pass along to the department of / x( \ justice. At the capitol, however, steel producers not only argued a fixed mini noiai^y-“'S mum price list for a period of months, &OARO ’ W i t h the public in full cognizance of Vi what was forward, but minimum prices \ for steel were agreed upon with the a knowledge, even with the connivance, of government representatives. By iliis virtual repeal of the Sherman anti trust law, accomplished through the agreement between the industrial board of the department of commerce and the steel manufacturers fixing the price of steel products for the remainder ot the current year, the government lias served notice upon general industry that it has adopted a broad and con structive policy in the matter of business conservation, and that the narrow, repressive attitude it had assumed toward enterprise for more than a genera tion has been finally abandoned. Nobody at Home in the Nation’s Capital City HOW is the United States government run these days? It looks os if Uncle Sam or Columbia must be running things. Anyway, there was a cabinet meeting the other day at which but two regulars, one understudy and a recess appointee not yet confirmed by the senate were present. Mr. Wilson L * ' and Secretary of State Lansing were in v I* Paris. Secretary of the Navy Daniels - was en route for Europe. Secretary of War Baker was on the Pacific coast. PS? Secretary of Commerce Redfield was sfc'r SI Jt touring the country. Secretary of the jtlti wa* wy Interior Lane was taking a two-day va cation in Virginia. Vice President l • Marshall was not in Washington. Con- —l^-* gress was not in session. The cabinet meetings held during the president’s first absence were first-quality functions. With the president’s second departure for France the cabinet meetings began to dwindle. Daniels started to follow his chief. Baker began a nation wide tour of Inspection. Redfield went out to preach the league of nations doctrine in the byways and hedges. At this particular cabinet meeting Postmaster General Burleson arrived at 2:20, ten minutes ahead of time, driving up the front roadway in the brougham which he steadfastly refuses to trade for an automobile. He was followed by Secretary of the Treasury Glass, also In a brougham. He was on time. Palmer, the new attorney general, just got in under the wire by speeding his automobile. Polk, acting secretary of state, walked. Working of the Franking .Privilege in Congress IN THE last hours of the Sixty-fifth congress Representative Alvan T. Fuller 'of Massachusetts freed Ills mind on the “shameful abuse of the franking privilege by members of congress.” He said, among other things, according to the Congressional Record: , f “Firstly, there is franked out of odrlt 0 M the fi° use office building daily from 20 CONGRESSMEN to 30 tons of mail matter, and about election time this quantity is increased rrnLKE TO STOP ) to 30 or 40 tons. One congressman a jf* sent out 750,000 parcels of literature c and one political party at one elec- tion sent out 55,000,000 speeches. The superintendent stated that at times V J there were from 500 to 600 clerks em ployed doing nothing but packing free literature into free envelopes to be sent through the mails free of expense for congressmen. I asked how many parcels a congressman could have, and he said as many as he liked. “Well,” I said, ‘not a million apiece,’ and he said, ‘Yes.’ And then I inquired how many envelopes, and he said as many as a congressman wanted. I asked him how about the printing, and he said, ‘No charge to a congressman.’ And I asked him about the franking privilege, and he said these things were all franked out. “I find it is quite the custom when a congressman is running for election to flood his district or state with all kinds of free literature. For example, one of our congressmen, a while ago desired to have his name considered in connection with the governorship of his state, with the result that he con ceived the idea of sending out a nice collection of books to the voters of his state. He sent out 640,000 parcels of books in one day; the postage would have been to ordinary mortals 45 cents each per parcel. It is a simple matter in arithmetic to see that 640,000 parcels at 45 cents apiece cost Uncle Sam over $300,000 for postage. Of course, the cost of the books them selves would be greatly in excess of this amount.” With the American Camouflage Section in France I THE demands of the American expeditionary forces frequently affected the peoples of far-off regions in the most extraordinary fashion. Last sum mer, for example, there was some danger of the women of Madagascar having to go naked because their only article of clothing was purchased in such ex- AA A a a ,/T traordinary quantities by the American r|UV'U~ (TJi) . ,((V camouflage corps, according to state- ments made on the floor of the house \ in debate. The costume of a Mala- )I l gasy woman consists of nothing more ' ® than a three-yard length of native woven, earth-colored matting. It was discovered that this matting, when laid y upon the ground, imitated a path, such as would be made by the feet of sol- diers, to perfection. So, in order to bewilder and deceive the German airmen, a veritable network of imitation paths was laid down behind the American lines, 10,000 miles of women’s dress goods being imported for the purpose from Madagascar. The American camouflage section used more than four and one-quarter million square yards of burlap every month. There were burlaps dyed and “slashed” to imitate plowed fields, green fields, roads, lawns, quarries, water, rocks, and spring, summer, autumn, and winter foliage; in short, every phase of nature as found in eastern France. By far the most important work of the camouflage section was the con struction of “false contours” for the concealment of troops, gun positions, am munition dumps, and the like. One of the “false contours” erected by the camouflage corps was so clever ly executed that a peasant’s cow, grazing on the hillside, strayed out onto the burlap surface, broke through, and was extricated only with considerable difficulty. Austrians Think Wilson Is Rudolph of Austria OFFICIAL Washington is amused over copies of the Vienna Bulletin, an Austrian propaganda organ with headquarters at Rotterdam, containing n queer story to the effect; that inhabitants of lovfer Austria believe that President Woodrow Wilson is none t other than Crown Prince Rudolph of \ piidolpH - J^iustria * who Wft s assassinated near ng LOOKS Baden in 1889. Following is the story: \ m<.r LIKE “Ever since the war there 3s a /C tri c growing belief among the rural people <S 'sVlHiflocLr " that the crown prince, who, as will be \ ~— remembered, was addicted to scientific \\/ # researches, is identical with Prof. _ Woodrow Wilson, president of the A;— United States of America. It may not be surprising if at the coining election for the national assembly President Wilson will be nominated by the country people of lower Austria and Styria as principal candidate and land as the first president of the German Austrian republic.” Rudolph, archduke and crown prince of Austria, only son of Francis Joseph I, is the hero of an historical romance that will not die. He was a man of parts —a talented writer, something of a scientist, and an enthusiastic big-game hunter and travel r r. He was, however, a wild blade. His death in 1889 in his shooting lodge t Meyerling, near Baden, created a world-wide sen sation. It was involved in a mystery that was never publicly cleared up. it may have been suicide. It may have been murder. By thousands it is believed that the body in the shooting lodge was nob that of Rudolph and that he had fl&d t o America because of a love affair.
