The first national safety exposition,

from twenty-five government bureaus
was held in Washington from Febru
ary 21 to 26. There has been a gen

cthat Uncle Sam is a safety crank,
but the scope and variety of the ex
position was a surprise to all but the
closest followers of the movement.
There was the bureau of navigation,
for instance. One of the duties of
this bureau is the' enforcement of a
law providing that every vessel carry
ing more than fifty passengers, either
on the ocean or the Great Lakes, must
be equipped with a wireless apparatus,
effective up to a hundred miles at
least. The radio inspectors reported
twenty-six vessels which le^t our ports
in 1915 to meet with disaster. They
caught on fire, they ran ashore, they
got Jammed in the ice, they collided
with each other, their cargoes shift
ed but they summoned assistance
by wireless. In twenty-five, cases the
wireless call brought such prompt
help that only two lives were lost al
together. The twenty-sixth case was
the Lusitania.
On the lakes the wireless comes in

warnings from the weather' bureau

Washington, D. C.. Feb. 27.—Few
people realize how many native and
naturalized American citizens are
fighting in the European armies. Re
liable estimates place their number itt
about ten thousand. These ten thou
sand men are giving rise to all sorts
of legal and diplomatic complications.
The question of their status in the
United States, if they get through the
war alive and return home, is bother
ing a good many of them.
Our law sets forth that any Ameri
can citizen who takes an oath of al
legiance to a foreign state has ex
patriated himself. Some of the Euro
pean armies require an oath of alleg
iance from the recruit, while others do
not. Any American who* has taken
such an oath is no longer an American
citizen, The question of his restora
tion to citizenship should he desire it,
will probably have to be settled in
American courts.
As to the duties of American Citizen
ship, the state department says in its
dignified way that it does not under
take to prescribe the duty of an indi'
vidual with regard to his citizenship,
but it is nevertheless of the opinion
that American neutrality requires
American citizens to keep out of the
actual fighting. That is just the way
The French government is not very
willing to give up its claim on men of
military age. To get a release from
liability to serve, a special permit has
to be secured from the minister of jus
tice by the ex-Frenchman who has
naturalized himself in another land.
Besides the trouble involved, such a
permit costs about

number of the fighting Americans
in Europe feel about it.
They belong to the
ized citizens who were
their native countries when the war
broke out. The home government reserve
broke out. The home government
promptly snapped them up. Pres^ted
them with nice new uniforms, rifleo
$125.
Very few Frenchmen who became
American citizens took the trouble to
arrange the formalities involved in re
moving their names from the list of
men available for active service.
Hence a good many of them are now
up to their knees in mud, shooting at
Germans along the line that runs from
Switzerland to the sea.
The British army has been getting
its share of Americans, chiefly in the
Canadian contingent. Numerous
youths from the border states have
enlisted, many of them under the age
of legal majority. The American gov
ernment has succeeded i?i arranging
for conditions of release for such re
cruits. Although they enlisted vol
untarily, some of their found that wai
is a bigger contract than they had
bargained for, and the parents of oth
ers came forward with
vehement objections. The British
government has agreed that when con
vincing proof is brought forward to
show that an American citizen was a
minor at the time of his enlistment"
in the British army, he will be dis
charged without pay wherever he may
happen to be when his discharge goes
into effect.
i-euin
In consequence, he may find himsel*
stranded without money to live on or
to pay bis passage home. Persons dis
charged from' the British service are
not allowed to wear the British uni
form thereafter, so the erstwhile sold-
widely assorted safety service of any
arm of the government. Besides such
commonplace incidents as salving
wrecked vessels, it has on its records
the prevention of suicide, return 9t
lost children to their parents, emer
gency piloting, fire fighting, and the
arrest of thieves and law breakers.'
In the way of recent history, the
coast guard records showed that on
360 days in the last year one or more
of its hranches was seeing active ser
vice. Fifteen hundred people were
rescued from immediate danger and
the vessels to which some form of as
sistance was given carried over ten
thousand souls. In many cases this
assistance prevented serious acci
dents. The service restored to life
six people dragged from the ocean
after having been under water ten to
fifteen minutes.
ier may not even have a coat to his
back. The state department has no
l'unds appropriated for the care of
cases such as these, and therefore the
department requires that a deposit big
enough to take care of the discharged
recruit and pay his passage home shall
be made by whoever is interested in
getting him out of the service, before
the case is brought to the attention of
the British government.
Numerous naturalized Americans
are fighting in the German armies. A
number of German businesses in this
country are being managed by the
women of the family, while the hus
band and father chases Russians or
argues with the English on the west
ern front. In Cincinnati, for instance,
there is a German bakery being run
by the lady of the house. Her husband
and her three sons are fighting for the
red, white and black. Incidentally it
may be noted that she is making a
success of the baking business.
There is a treaty between Germany
and the United States providing that
German subjects who have become
clt}2,eng
and trenching tools, and shipped them was warn
off to the front. Most of the com
plaints along this line are coming from
Italy. Italian law holds that natural
ization of an Italian subject in a for
eign country without consent of the
Italian government does not make hirn
less liable to military service. The
United States has no treaty with Italy
defining the status of former Italian
subjects who have become American
citizens. Thus a former Italian sub
ject who visits Italy is liable to arrest
and enforced military service if he is
between sixteen and thirty-two years
old. A good many of the Americans
on the Austro-Italian front belong to
this class.

Many Germans who returned to the

account of

by the relatives they left behind them.
Turkey and Russia take a highly
severe attitude toward such of their
subjects as see fit to transfer their
allegiance. A Russian subject

twho
naturalizes under another government
has committed an offense for which
he can be arrested and punished on
his return to Russia, unless he first
gets permission to return from the
czar's government. The United States
dissents from Russia's position in the
matter, but a. former Russian citizen
who returns to Russian soli puts him
self within the jurisdiction of Russian
law. If he conceals the fact of his
American naturalization, this govern
ment is under no obligation to protect
him while he is in his native land.
The laws of Turkey also forbid a
Turk who has naturalized in another
country to return to Turkey, under
penalty of arrest and imprisonment, or
at best, expulsion. Here, too, the
United States dissents, but in the ab
sence of a treaty with Turkey cover
ing the point, cannot guarantee to its
naturalized Turkish citizens that they
will not be arrested or expelled when
they go home.
The most Interesting angle of the
situation from the American point of
view is the future status of all these
soldier citizens on their return to the
United States. Several such cases are
already, before the courts. For in
stance, there is an American from De
troit who served in the British army.
He came back to this country on the
promise of employment, and was ar-
reated
under the alien contract labor
Taken in round numbers, a small
army of Americans have enlisted un
der various warring banners. But
compared with our whole population,
especially our total population of alien
birth, the number of these fighting
Americans is surprisingly small. Its
smallness is a striking demonstration
of the rapidity with which our immi
grants become genuine citizens in
heart as well as in name.
The coast guard service includes
both the life saving and the revenue
cutter ^branches. It is under the
treasury department.
BABY WEEK.
March 4 to 11 inclusive is "Baby
Week" in Iowa. Various organizations
are lending their efforts toward mak
ing the week one of benefit to the
state. The slogan is "Iowa's best
crop—its babies. It's time to give
them a week's thought."- Help in pro
moting baby welfare work during this
week will be given by the children's
bureau, department of labor, Wash

ment, University of Iowa by the
Iowa Federation of Women's clubs
by the ,Iowa Congress pf Mothers by

Have you seen anything that con
vinces you the millenium ia at hand
or even approaching? It looks to us
as though the world is rolling right
along in the path it has followed for
the last five or six thousand years,
during which time its history has
been war after war. From time to
time nations of pacifists have arisen
but their fate has always been the
same. What tt\e other nations did
to them was a plenty.
The retrenchment and reform com
mittee' of the state legislature met
in Des Moines Tuesday, provided an
automobile for one of the state de
partments, appropriated |3,200 for ex
tra help in the same department,
made provision for paying an extra
clerk in another department and then
adjourned: They call it the retrench
ment committee. What are the spend
ing committees doing?
According to the allies, the dead
Germans were piled up in heaps as
the result of their assaults upon Ver
dun while the losses of the defenders
were slight. According to the Teu
tons, their losses were surprisingly
small, while whole heaps of French
dead were passed over in the victor
ious charges. Somebody's fibbing.
If more people realized the willing
and efficient way in which the librar
ians at the public library meet re
quests for aid in looking up refer
ences or special topics, there would
be a voider use of the many valuable
volumes at the institution.
There is a question whether March
came in like a lion or like a lamb.
The general wintry aspect resembled
the lion but the snow and the absence
of blustery winds reminded one more
of the lamb.

a rough-looking hobo invaded the
yard one afternoon and asked where
the father kept his money.
"It's in his vest in the kitchen,"
said Percy.
A few minutes later the hobo came
through the kitchen doorway in a

"Smart kid!" he muttered. "Never

THOMPSON SPIT
STATE DAIRY INSPECTOR AS
SAILS MAYOR AT WATERLOO
FOR APPOINTMENT8.
Waterloo, March 2.—The first hot
shot of the campaign for municipal
offices was hurled against Mayor R.
C. Thompson by Dr. O. P. Thompson,
state dairy inspector, who addressed
the meeting of the Child Conserva
tion league at the Y. M. C. A. on
"Dairy Inspection." The state official,
himself a resident of Waterloo, direct-1
ly charged the present mayor with'
having appointed as milk inspector
man he declared to be totally lncomn?
tent to fill the office
"The present milk inspector admit
ted to me that he was Unacquainted
with the duties of his office, but de
clared that he wanted the salarv
whlch amount to $100 a month. I
understand that he received the ap
pointment as a reward for having aid
ed in electing the present mayor," de
clared Dr. Thompson, who further
called attention to the fact that dur
ing the present administration the
custom of publishing in the newspa
pers monthly reports of conditions in
each dairy had been discontinued, and
that milk is allowed to b£ sold as "A
grade," although it does not meet the
state tests for this grade.
Dr. Thompson, after severely criti
cising Mayor Thompson for this ap
pointment, declared that not all the
milk sold in Waterloo was of inferior
quality because some dairymen were
honest enough to place only their best
milk on the market. He further stat
ed that in his work he had failed to
get the cooperation of the present city
administration and urged the many
women present to aid in bringing
about a change at the approaching
election.
BUYS LIQUOR III
CLEANUP PROCESS
FINDS SOME FRENCH AB8INTHE,
NOW SO MUCH SOUGHT
AFTER.
Dubuque, March 2. A Dubuque
man who knows something more than
a little about liquor is telling how he
made a good purchase a few days be
fore the saloons of Dubuque were clos
ed. One night he happened, in at a
saloon where the cleanup process had
started. The proprietor and bartend
ers were engaged in hauling old bot
tles from the shelves of a cupboard
and selling them for almost any price.
Three dust covered bottles were
brought out. It was thought they con
tained some out of date cordial, but
they were so covered with dust that
the printing on the sides could not be
read. The proprietor to|d him to take
the three for 60 cents. The bottles,
full quarts, contained absinthe, the
French liquor now so much sought
after because it is no longer manufac
tured, the French government having
enacted a strict law against its manu
facture.
The purchaser claims to have been
offered |50 for a single one of the
bottles, though it originally was worth
less than $5. He has not sold and says
he will not sell until he can realize at
least ,$100 a bottle.
"BIRTH OF A NATION"
GIVES FRAT AN IDEA
Iowa City, March 2.—The call of the
Ku Klux Klan resounded shrilly ln
front of Currier hb.ll, the girl's dorm'.
tory at the university.
Two hundred girls rushed excitedly
to the windows. Below they say a
group of shrouded night riders, the
leader holding aloft q, burning cross.
Again the call sounded shrilly. Then
the party turned sharply and amid
a clatter of hoofs vanished down
Clinton street.
"The Birth of a Nation" had just
shown for a week in Iowa City and
the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity
was merely putting its freshmen
through some of the usual "stunts"
of initiation week. Nine pledges,
wearing the insignia of the Ku Klux
Klan, were chivalrously amusing the
coeds and others about the city.
The fiery steeds were only broom
sticks.
The act was one of the best de
vised this year for the amusement of
the fraternities. There have been
the usual barrel races up Clinton
street, vaudeville entertainments on
sorority house porches, and stunts of
a similar nature.
WOMEN OF PARISH
ARE MONEY MAKERS
Stone City, March 2.—That, the
women of the parish are money mak
ers was made evidept by the last an
nual report of St. Joseph's Catholic
church. The total receipts for the
year were $1,320, of which $533 was
made by the women. The little
$20,000 stone church when finished
two years ago, carried a debt of
$1
,500, only $700 of which remains
to be paid. This rapid paying off
of the debt in spite of the scattered
nature of the community and the
scarcity of work among the quarry
men in winter is due to the work of
the women.
