THE APOTHEOSIS OF HYPOCI4ISY
"The government goes right on ignoring the prohibition law on sea
while making some ineffective efforts to enforce it on land," remarked
August Busch, of Anheuser-Busch, Inc., when he. arrived last. week from
Europe. Mr. Busch further stated that passengers on the George Wash
ington discussed the buying of liquor from the government on board the
ship and then inviting the government to arrest and prosecute them when
they reached shore.
It would certainly be a nice legal question as to whether the govern
ment could use money from the United States Treasury to sell liquor on
its ships att a profit and then prosecute a purchase for violation of the law.
It is true the government is in an awkward position. The Shipping
Board is spending thousands of: dollars to stimulate passenger traffic, but
much of the money is wasted because a dry ship has a hard time to win
The majority of the people of the United States may be dry but they
don't travel the ocean enough to back up an American Merchant Marine
-along lines of moral conduct.
Official dignitaries who publicly espouse prohibition have their cellars,
the private room at the public banquet is a recognized factor at all 'sue
cessful dinners." Even the offices of some of our Congrcssmen are said
to be storehouses for booze.
Summed up, the country stands today the apotheosis of hypocrisy.
The American Merchant Marine seems to rest in the balance, but
hypocrisy will sink the ships quicker than any restriction.
Let us have enforcement or repeal, one thing or the other.

WORSE THAN THE WAR
In the past eighteen months there have died in the United States
more than twice as many Americans. as a result of automobile accidents,
as were killed in the great war. Only 48,000 of our boys went west in the
big conflict, while in the last-year and a half 91,000 Americans died as ai
result of motor car accidents.
The startling feature of these figures lies in a knowledge that the
war is ended, while the motor car is with us to stay and to increase in use.
Despite the. heavy toll it takes in iunan life nothing is going.to stop
Consideration of the situationf brings its importance home to the coun
try even more than to the city because nearly sevenly per cent of the
automobiles manufactured in America are sold and used in towns of five
thousand population and under and on the farms.
This means that preventable deaths in the country as a result of au
tomohile activities is proportionately great, a situation so serious that it
cries aloud that something he done to halt this yearly naltional disaster.
One of the great sources of automobile accidents is the grade cross
ing. a problem in every small community.
In many states the law prescribes that when grade crossings are eli
minated the villages through which they pass must stand a good propor
tion of the expense. This is a heavy burden on the taxpayers.
On the other hand to order tie railroads generally to eliminate cross
ings at grade. either by an elevation or by submerging of tracks would ap
pear to be an unjust demand.
'TIhis matter of grade crossings is more than local. Indeed it is so
so national in eharacter it might he well for Washington to assist more ma
terially than it does in checking the country's most notorious death traps.

Economical use of the skim milk
for feeding calves, pigs, and chickens
is another essential to success; as is
the proper handling and conservation
of the manure produced. If these by
