TAKING LUMPS OF WEATHER
Have a lump of sugar in your coffee or your tea
Take a lump of weather as you go along with me.
Just the way you'll have it,
Zephyr light or tempest strong
But always somewhere something
Like the sweetness of a song.
Taking lumps of weather as it changes day by day
Is learning to be seasoned for the spirit of the fray.
Not for us the choosing,
But for us to say and sing
If it's winter, then it's winter ;
If it's spring, hooray for spring!
The savor's in the substance of our feeling for the life,
Contented with its beauty and resigned to meet its strife
Have a lump of weather,
In your heart and trudge along . .
Just so, in balm or blizzard,
You've the sweetness of the song!

AN APPEAL TO COMMON SENSE
San Francisco Bulletin
Will Irwin, a San Francisco writer, who earned the title of "Ace
of Correspondents" for his services in France, has written a remark
able book, "The Next War: An Appeal to Common Sense," in which
he sounds a warning to America and the world in general. It is not
known whether President Harding has read this little volume, but
if he has, the fact might well account for his change of attitude in
regard to the Borah resolution, requesting him to open negotiations
with Great Britain and Japan for an agreement to curtail naval con
struction. It is a book of facts and figures, so presented that they speak for
themselves and tell the whole story. By means of comparisons and
contrasts, Irwin puts the breath of life into statistics and converts
them from inanimate figures into moving pictures. .
For instance, he prints a picture of a proposed aircraft carrier,
estimated to cost $26,000,000 and writes underneath:
The amount of money two such ships cost would provide an increase
of $800 a year for five years in the salaries of 13,(XX) school teachers.
It is possible we shall have to do without propertly paid teachers in
order to prepare adequately for the next war.
Another picture is that of a clock illustrating the cost of the
World war during its last year. The total cost a day for all countries
was $240,000,000 that is, the direct cost, and not the destruction of
civil property. Underneath is written :
The money the World war cost for a single hour during the last
year would build ten schools costing $1,000,000 each.
The money it cost for a single day would build in each of the forty
eight states two hospitals costing $500,000 each; two $1,000,000 high
schools in each state; 300 recreation centers, with gymnasiums and
swimming pools, costing $300,000 each ; and there would be left $6,000,
000 to promote industrial education.
The Revolutionary war, the war of 1812, the Mexican war, Civil
war and Spanish-American war cost altogether only $5,842,000,000,
as against $22,625,000,000 for our part in the late war. The actual
expenditures of the United States for the fiscal year 1919-20 (ex
elusive of loans to European governments) were : Pensions, interest
and other expenses arising from past wars, $2,890,000,000; army and
navy (preparations lor luture wars;, i,.i4.iKMj.u(.M; primary gov
ernment functions, $220,000,000; public works, $85,000,000 ; research,
education, public health, and development, $59,000,000.
The cost of all wars, from 179:J to 1910, was $23,000,000.000 : the
cost of the World war was $186,000,000,000. If there is to be a next
war, and the cost is to be proportionately progressive, universal
bankruptcy will be inevitable.
But all this takes no account of the fact that in the last war
nearly 10,000,000 soldiers died in battle, and from 2,000,000 to 3,000,
000 were permanently disabled.
Some thought bestowed upon such facts and figures as these
may have determined the course of President Harding in withdraw
ing his opposition to the Borah resolution, that is now almost certain
to be adopted. It does not call upon America or any other nation to
begin disarming, but it seeks to provide the machinery whereby the
nations can call a halt to the policy of increasing armaments that are
sure to result in another war.
Senator Borah was an irreconcilable opponent of the peace treaty
and the League of Nations, but he is doing his best to live down the
evil reputation of having sacrificed the national interests and the in
terests of all humanity in order to play a political game at the last
elections. The purpose of his fight was achieved when Woodrow
AVilson was deprived of the honor of placing America at the head
of the nations in a plan for the preservation of world peace, but that
position is still open to America, and the Borah resloution is a prac
tical step in that direction.
Incidentally, it may be noted that the turn of events in regard
to the limitation of armaments bears out the prediction made by
Mark Sullivan in the Bulletin in the early part of last week. Sulli
van then said: "There is hardly a man in congress who doesn't be
lieve that within a measurable distance ahead of us there is going to
be some kind of an association of nations for the prevention of future
A conference of America,' Great Britain and Japan on the limita
tion of naval building paves the way for that association, and Presi
dent Harding's virtual acceptance of the Borah resolution, though
seemingly a change of front, is consistent with his action in appoint
ing a representative to the Supreme Council. Both steps are equiv
alent to a repudiation of the Knox resolution, regarded as a sufficient
method of making peace.

Each in his place does his bit, day by day, and the sura total is
the world's work
If you fall down on your job, the job falls down too. The work
depends on the workman.
You may think you bulk so small on the landscape that it makes
no difference whether you stand or fall. But as one thinks and does,
the millions think and do.
By every act or failure to act wc affect our eompanj our city,"
our nation, our eartn, in our own time ana even to remote posterity.
But we oughn't to let that thought scare us. All that each of us
can do is to "carry on," in the spot where his duty has set him down,
to the best of his ability. . . , .
