I believe in the United States of America as a govern.
ment of the people, by the people, for the people, whose
; ftul powers art derived from the consent of the governed;
a democracy in a republic, r. sovereign Nation of many
' sovereign States; a perfect Union, one and inseparable,
\ established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice,
and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed
their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty
to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to
'obey its laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against
all enemies.
WHAT do you think of the brain power of a man
who can extend the wheat belt 100 miles northJ
ward toward the everlasting snows? That is the accomplishment
of Professor W. F. Thompson, of Saskatchewan j
' University. Not long since farmers jeered at the idea of !
;. science invading agriculture. Thompson is a scientist. ;
And his discovery will revolutionize wheat growing in
? western Canada.
As you travel north toward the Yukon, the summer
. season grows shorter. Beyond a certain point, wheat
i. cannot be grown, for it does not have time to ripen before !
the first frost. Red Fife for years was the standard wheat
grown in Canada. Then a government scientist developed
Marquis wheat, which ripens a week sooner than Red Fife.
' The wheat belt moved 100 miles further north.
| A. year ago a wheat wizard brought out Red_ Bobs, a
wneat that ripens a week earlier than Marquis. 1 he wheat
belt advanced another hundred miles toward the North
Pole. Now comes Professor Thompson with still another
improved wheat. It ripens a week sooner than Red Bobs.
Again the wheat belt knocks down the fences of climate
and pushes northward. Professor Thompson's discoveries
will bring under cultivation millions of acres of land west
of Hudson Bay that until now have been supposedly too
far north for wheat growing.
Amazing is man's conquest of climate and weather. Consider
the debt we owe to the inventor of the hothouse. It
enables us to grow fresh vegetables under glass while blizzards
rage a few feet overhead. City dwellers would rarely
eat fresh meat were it not for Tellier. His invention gave
us refrigerator cars and cold storage plants. He died of
When winter is at its worst, the furnace invention enables
you to live in summer temperature. You can change
die atmosphere of your house to spring or autumn by merely
touching a little magic box called thermostat. One scienJj

WHERE is the person who says America is a horrid
place, beset with evils and a mociery of justice?
Lead him around the world and he'll come home in sack
cloth and ashes and hungry under his belt.
Abuses in America? Yes. Many of them. Profiteers,
liars, four-flushers and some bad laws and some paleozoic
employers and some crazy people. We've probably got
the biggest trusts in the world, just as we've got the tallest
buildings and the most acres and the queerest legislators.
But there isn't a wrong thing in America that Americans
can't fix whenever they want to badly enough. There isn't
a wrong thing that isn't subject to the control of machinery
that Americans either have ready to use or have the power
to make. No honest person can have a grouch about a
land that contains wrong things as long as that land offers
the machinery for making things right.
In Europe they are just fighting their way up to a speaking
acquaintance with what we've had for a long time.
They are just getting their wages up to our levels; they are
trying to get their standard of living up to somewhere near
ours; they are trying to devise labor and capital machinery
that will keep things right side up so they can live as well
as we do. But we are still a lap and a half ahead on
every count?and we're due to stay that way.
British workmen went through the war on wages far
below the American average. In France, still lower. And
profiteers? Arthur Giles, secretary of the Grocers' Federation
of England, told that association that British grocers
made nine millions sterling, largely by dumping obsolete
goods on the poor people under food control. High prices?
England and France have them, with a population less than
ours to pay the bills. Paris will charge you $1.50 for a
half-dollar breakfast.
The workman who says "they've better conditions over
there" has been listening to fairy stories. It will be some
time before war-torn Europe can build conditions for her
population that will even approximate our own. Good
things car.not be made out of thin air. Nor can their
foundations rest upon ashes and shell holes.
America is like a big man?a 260-pounder?strong,
healthy, fearless, capable. And plenty of food in sight.
Whoever saw a big man go crazy, or get despondent, or
foolish? Europe is like a slim, hungry man. That man
of Europe has got to build up and get meat around
the waist and across the chest. And in those places
where food isn't likely to be got for a long time the thin
man may do some foolish things just becmausc there's nothing
else to do and because he isn't normal.
Furniture, food, clothes, steel, lumber, machines, tools,
seeds?all these and a thousand other things, America must
make for the world. America must be the world's great
hive of industry, and so it must be the world's home of
Last week, according to the trade reports, the steel
mills devoted to structural shapes were on 85 per cent
capacity and the orders ahead Indicate that they will
increase that as fast as possible. The other branches
of the steel trade also report increased operation. The
trend of the market is Indicated by the fact that prices
have begun to advance. Director General Hines, whose
effort to beat down prices held up the whole industrial
resumption for a number of weeks, may yet regret that
he did not buy at the price agreed upon by the Industrial
The R-34 was a bit late, but she landed at the spot
picked out for her long in advance and adhered to practically
all other particulars to the program, thus proving
that aerial navigation has settled down to a point where
it can be dealt with in a practical way.
Senator Borah is on sounder ground in his statement
attacking the treaty with France than he was when he
started out to defeat the League of Nations, but even
in this he is not going to make much of an impression
because the public suspects that the principle trouble
with Borah is that he is a man who does not have any
In Italy the situation is becoming alarming, and it is
particuarly bad in Florence. But. rioting and mob rule
is no new thing in that town. When one remembers
some ot the things Florence has survived any tendency
to pessimism over the conditions o? the present is apl
to vanish.
Following Marshal von Hindenburg's statement that
he and he alone is responsible for the conduct of the
war after 1916 comes a statement from the four youngest
sons of the former emperor in which they ask the
Allies to take them instead of their father when the
time comes to put Wilhelm on trial at London. It It
all very interesting and in a certain sense pathetic, but
the trial and punishment of the former kaiser is justifled
by his own logic. He Is to be tried *or the crimet
of the German people, but for years he told those people
that his will must be the determining factor in their life,

Th' Bard found this in one of his
old scrap books last night. The name
of the author had not been included
in the clipping, so no credit other
than this explanation can be given:
"No man can learn what he
has not preparation for learning,
however near to his eyes Is the
object. A chemist may tell his
most precious secrets to a carpenter,
and he shall be never the
wiser?the secrets he would not
utter to a chemist for an estate.
