Germany Must Pay Thiaucourt Frum? knows how to make Germany pay for the destruction she cuu.sed during the World War. and every German will be held to strict ac countability for the repair of this dam age. Premier ltayumnd I'oincuire told the assembled population of Thiau court, which gathered to dedicate a monument to soldiers of this communi ty who fell in the great struggle. The ceremony had a double meaning in that the monument was designed to honor the memory of scores ef civilians whu died as a result of occupation of Uie town by German troop.

Professor of Hitry nd Political Science Rerea College The utterances of Vice President Coolidge In the northwestern part of the country are interesting and suif irestive at this time. He went to Oregon t participate In the unveiling f a statue erected to the memory of Theodore Roosevelt, In one of the parks of Portland. In the coure of remarks he said that strikes were a siirn of prosperity, that they nevr rame when times were had, as the men then always clung; to their job. There Is some enrourairement in this, to say the least, even tho it may not he entirely true. We need to see the bright side of situation that is Irritating and jret what comfort we can from It Strikes, however, d not add to the prosperity of a country as they cause great losses which some one has to bear and generally those who least deserve it. For a long time the U. S. has been seeking to bring about some un derstanding with Germany with re lation to the manv claim which - cumulated during the war. American property In Germany was confiscated, ships with their cargo were sunk, victims of the Lusitania had their cause taken up by relatives or friends. Recently Germany has agreed to the appointment of a com mission for this purpose. It ia to be composed of three, one appointed by each nation and the other selected by them from some neutral nation. Germany has waved the latter re quirement and allows the third to be selected from the U. S. This is be ing quoted as an evidence of the great confidence reposed in American jus tice and fairness. , I j The League of Nations will meet '. in Geneva on September 4th. It is , believed that some important mat ters will come before the Assembly. It is known that Hungary expecta to ask for admission to the League. The South American states have sev eral matters to present. They will ask for the right to establish an American League at the same time that they retain their place in that of Europe. They are likely also to champion the cause of Mexico and her admission to tho League. It is not improbable that a representative may be made president of the as sembly. A good many visitors will attend this meeting to watch the pro ceedings. Among others, the Amer ican former candidate for the presi dency, Mr. Cox, will be an observer and will doubtless have impo-tant in formation to give. ! It is reported that Poland has b gun to increase her army. It is sup posed that this is due to the activity of the army of the Russian Soviet German officers are reorganizing the . Russian army as they formerly did I the Turkish. The size of the division being increased to correspond with that of the German army. Attempts are also being made to secure am munition probably in the U. S. Po land has thus far been able to hold her own in conflicts that previously took place and had to be held bacV from aggressive warfare. The great Polish musician, Paderewsky, unable to bring about harmony in his coun try, gave up the task and has re turned to his musical career. Not long ag France sent to the U. S. a representative to discuss finan cial affairs. The mission of this mar, Parmentier, by name, does not sem to have fared well, or at least, not to the satisfaction of France, and ho has returned for Instruction. It seems that France expected him to make the U. S. understand that sh could not pay her obligations until Germany paid hers. The United States understood that he came to negotiate a settlement or arrange ment of some kind. This misunder standing is responsible for the lark of accomplishments. The U. S. ra not so much concerned with imme diate pnvment a the recognition of the debt and the funding of it at whs done so satisfactorily with Eng land. j A Cartful Wife. I "An.
