STRIKE SITUATION MORE 8ERI0US Washington Angered at Plaa Reject- tiea The newa from New York on Aug ust 1, of the refusal of ths Railway Eexecutiv Board to accept President Harding's peace proposal in its en tirety put firs in ths attituds of soms official quarters- in Washington. On spokesman for ths government said "The Government plan will have to bo accepted," said this high of ficial, who is in closs contact with the strike situation. "The seniority issue is a false ons. Unless tho strlks is settled within thirty days 10,000, 000 men will be out of work." A brief summary of ths Presi dent's compromise proposal ia at f ol io wa: "First Railway managers and workmen are to agree to recognize the vslidity of all decision of the Railroad Labor Board and to faith fully carry out such decisions as con templated by the law. . . "Second The carrier will with draw all law suits growing out of the strike and Railroad Labor Board decisions which have been involved in tho atrike may be taken, in the ex ercise of recognized rights by either! party, to the Railroad Labor Board for re-hearing; "Third All employes now on strike to be returned to work and to their former positions with seniority snd other rights unimpaired. The representatives of the carriers and ths representatives of the orgsniza- tiona especially agree thst there will be no discriminetion by either party against the employes who did not strike." It wss suggested by some govern ment officials thst legislstion would be enacted giving the railroad wage board power to enforce its rulings, snd thst ths wsgs seals should vary according to cost of living in diff erent sections. Accordng to newspsper reports from various part of ths country the strike situation is taking on a mors serious aspect day by day. It has been estimated thst' thre will be 10,000,000 workers idle if the strike continues for another month.

Rebertooa, Profsaaar of History and Political Science Berea College The Greeks are reusing a srood desl of anxiety by their persistent war against ths Turks by an attack ot Smyrna which was recently consign edto the Turks and by a demand on ths allies to enter Constantinople. Such a course upsets the arrange ment which was made and apparent ly agreed upon not long ago. Greece objects to the Turkish occupation of Constantinople and argues for the plan of neutralization, which was at one time considered. There is much truth in the chsrges brought sgainst the Turks for cruel trestment of sub ject populstions, and for the crusade for Mohammedism that they are mak ing. Greece, however, has been giv en clearly to understand by England that any occupation by her of Con stantinople will be resisted by force, and England is msking ready to car ry her threat into 'execution. Lloyd George has recently affirmed hi loyalty to the League of Nations as the best means of bringing about peace and order among the nations of Europe. This conclusion msy have been forced upon him by the outcome of the conferences at Genoa and the Hague. The League has the reputa tion of accomplishing important things and has a more efficient work ing organization than anything else. It la evident that the English prime minister withes to use the League to prevent trouble which ho sees brew ing In the Balkans. It is hit belief, also, thst Germany must be admitted to the League in order to prevent her closer alliance with Russia. It is probable that such a move will bo made at the coming meeting of the Assembly. Not only is Germany perplexed by her financial conditions, and by the danger of a monarchist revolution, but there is discord "among the mem bers of the Federal Republic. Ba varia, perhaps the strongest state in Germany, next to Prussia, has be come incensed at the government's order pertaining to the safety of the Republic. She considers it unconsti tutional and charges features that interfere with Bavaria's rights. Un der the old constitution this stste hsd some special privileges, and she is somewhat jealous of her unique posi tion. President Ebert, however, hss shown his firmness by refusing to grant Bavaria's claim and showing how detrimental it would be to the welfare of the Republic, and in this he is right. General Obregon, the efficient President of Mexico, hss been some whst critically sick at his cspital. lis was exposed to a rain and has suf fered from the bronchitis, followed by pneumonia. Not much has been said about the matter, and affairs in Mex ico have gone on as usual. The finance minister who recently cams to tho U. S. for a conference with bankers in connection with adjust ment of Mexico's financial obligations wss esgerly received, and it is be lieved some arrangement can bo made that will placo Mexico on a sound financial basis. Such is President Obregon's hope and purpose. Rec ognition of the government by the I'. S. is believed to be near at hand. Reports from Russia indicate that Lenin ia improved in health and thai matters ars going along with litt'o change. It was believed for a time that Russia was to make a now and more favorable proposition to the Hsgue Conference, but hopes were disappointed. A recent request of the American Relief Association to allow the U S. to help the intellec tual claas in Ruasia was refused on the ground that the Soviet ment must itself determine to whom help shsll be given, snd no outsider can decide that The Intellectual class are groat sufferers in Russia today, and many are glad to get tho smsllest opportunity to earn enough to get food for a living. Their abil ity and genius is thus going to waste and Russia does not teem to care.
