GLOBE PRINTING COMPANY, LTD. Editor and Business Manager GEO. A. SMITH. SEND A SENATE COMMITTEE TO EUROPE. Washington, I). C., Doc. 16.—The Republican Publicity as sociation, through its president, Hon. Jonathan Bourne, Jr., to day gave out the following statement from its Washington headquarters: It is frequently remarked, and is doubtless true, that the country places upon congress an estimate very much the same as that which congress places upon congress itself. If con gress takes its duties and responsibilities lightly, the country naturally acquires the same view, if congress abandons its own judgment to acquiesce in the judgment of some department or bureau head, the country is likely to assume that the judg ment of the administrative branch is better, notwithstanding the more reasonable conclusion that the concensus of opinion of 531 men from all parts of the country is more likely to be light. It. is a characteristic of humanity to have confidence in the man who has confidence in himself, until experience shows that his confidence is ill-founded. Probably no man ever occupied the White House who seemingly had more confidence in himself than Woodrow Wil son, and seldom with less justification. It would be difficult to find an instance of any man prominent in public life who lias been compelled so often to acknowledge the unsoundness of his views by radical change of mind. Naturally the people of the country took Mr. Wilsop very largely at his own esti mate of himself, but experience has created a wide-spread conviction that his judgment is unsafe. Substantial citizens finally found themselves unable to accept at its face value language which its author, at his convenience, twisted to mean something fiatly contradictory to its plain intent. Having lost confidence in the soundness of judgment of the president, the people last November elected a congress entertaining defferent economic views and elected them in direct opposition to tne strongest plea ever made by an executive for endorsement. There can be but one meaning to that act of the people—they desire that congress shall assume its proper place in the Ameri can scheme of government. "In spite of that expression direct from the people, the president has once more manifested his supreme confidence in himself and has gone to Europe to dictate the American view point concerning the terms of what will undoubtedly be the most important treaty ever negotiated. Moreover, he went without consulting either the people of the country or their chosen representatives. He directly repudiated that section of the constitution which says that he shall make treaties with the 'advice' of the senate. Fortunately he cannot overthrow that provision which requires ratification by a two-thirds vote of the senate. Because of this situation, unparalleled in our history, it becomes the duty of the senate to take every step which can aid it in acting advisedly upon the treaty. Four things the sen ate should bear in mind—the president's judgment is not sound, he has repeatedly admitted that it is not sound, the country has agreed that it is not sound, and the country de sires congress to exercise to the full the powers with which it is vested. "In order to inform the members fully, the senate should send to Europe at once a carefully selected committee of its ablest members, chosen equally from each of the parties, with instructions to secure all information that will be of use in deciding the course the senate should pursue when it is con fronted by the* duty of ratifying or rejecting the treaty pro forma is to set at naught the plain provisions of the constitu tion and to ignore the plain meaning of the vote of tin* people at the November elections." > 4 i i INCREASE PRODUCTION. According to a statement issued by the food administration, the food situation is more serious than ever before, and there b danger of enormous loss of life in Europe in the next few months through starvation. Economy in food is urged as a remedy. So far as it goes, economy in food is important. What is. still more important is assurance of increased production next season. In these times of high prices the amount of food wasted is relatively small, small amount of waste. For food supply, therefore, we must turn to increased production. Farmers must lie assur d that tl.ey will have an adequate supply of help next spring end sum mer, to do the planting, cultivating and harvesting. Il h citv v «go* look the help away from the farm. Those who won solve the food problem must first solve the problem of getting the labor back to the country districts. There is little hope of reducing that ! wT Tl,,,,1,1 rut,.

C( So V« j I All REFUGEES 'HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF UNFORTUNATES IN ITALY WELL CARED FOR. SCENE IN BOLOGNA STATION Alien Enemy Females Put Under the Permit Rules—Great Plans for the Further Relief of Belgians and French. Public Information.) Washington.—IIow the hundreds of thousands of unfortunates driven from their homes In the course of the Aus trian Invasions of Italy were safely piloted to their destinations Is related In a report received from an American Red Cross worker who 1ms been look ing after refugees in Bologna. "An arrival of emigrants from Eu rope would give but a faint Idea of an exodus of refugees," the report says. "Many of them are taking their first Journey on a railway. In most eases it Is Impossible to make themselves un derstood. They pour into the Bologna station, dragging behind them unwieldy packages, fiasks, Isittles, babies, sew ing machines, hens (refugees have eats. dogs, canaries, bullfinches, pig eons, turkeys—In fact, our rest home haj seen every variety of winged and four-footed live stock). There they stand, stupefied by the noise and con fusion of the arrival, utterly unable to move, while maybe their train Is about to depart. "However, we are there, looking for just such as they. The willing »oldlers who are assigned to help the Red Cross take their difficult bundles, the huge sacks and a few of the ba bies. We take the eldest child, leading the way as a sort of decoy : and away wt go, in and out of passenger trains, troop trains (no bridges or subways here), until we arrive at the train de sired, hidden away behind nil these obstacles, absolutely unattainable If not for our intervention. (From Commltte* "The train is jammed. They always Everyone on board cries to us are. there Is not another Inch of room. We pay no attention to them. Our fattest soldier enters a ear and opens a pas sage for the family. When all the mem bers and their endless belongings are squeezed In we go back and pick up another family." Seven thousand men at Kelly field, division of military neronnutlcs, last month saved articles which in other tintes would he regarded as Junk, but which brought the government $3,300. Some of this refuse was old paper, oil barrels, straw, hags, garbage, tin cans and metals. In addition, great plies of old cloth ing, tents, motorcycle parts, airplane fittings, engine parts, rubber tires and the like were saved. "Don't throw It away" Is the slogan which Is prompt ing the accumulation and sale of masses of materials at this and other camps. The fruit and milk cans that the "kitchen police" smash every day, for example, bring considerable money to' the government. They sell at $10 a ton. Kelly field ships them by the car load to copper refineries/ •where they are thrown Into flumes and serve to collect millions of molecules of copper that would otherwise he washed away. The cans are then heated, the copper separated from the tin and marketed. How to conaerve clothing and shoes, lumber mid equipment is taught the soldier, who Is not slow t»> see the ad vantage In dollars to himself as well as to the government. It Is Intended soon to open shoe repair shops and tailor shops at Kelly field to make the work of reclamation of still greater value to the government. Midnight of October 5, 1918, has been fixed by the United States attorney general as the time when regulations establishing a one-mile prohibited area around federal or state forts, camps, arsenals, aircraft stations, government or nnvnl vessels, nuvy yards, factories or workshops for the manufacture of munitions of war, etc., shall he effec tive as to German alien females.
