f THE N EXT GREAT WAR
The more the agreement between Germany and Russia la considered, the more
serious Its possibilities appear. That Turkey la planning to Join the new alliance
Is the latest report The Ottomans were allies of Germany in tho world war and
would doubtless welcome an opportunity to strike a deadly blow at the type of
civilization represented by the allied nations. It is hinted, too, that under cer
tain circumstances Japan might sign up with tho new group.
There we have the probable lineup for the next world war. If there Is to be
another. Germany, Russia. Turkey and Japan on one side; Great Britain. Erance,
' Italy,. Jugo-Slavla and Ciecho-Slovakia on the other. America? Well, there Is
no doubt which side America would be on, If she should enter such a war. I*rob
\
ably she would enter, to seso tho world from being dominated by the four powers
I ?n the other sole. If for no otlier reason.
The combination of Germany. Russia. Turkey and Japan may never be formed,
although present Indications point to It rather strongly. If it should be. the
? basis will be composed of hate, resentment, and thwarted ambitions. The situa
j tion Is one that demands Immediate recognition and action by the allies. By a
1 wise and decisive course now, they can probably prevent the consummation ot'
j such a sinister union. If they delay until Germany, Russia and Turkey aro again
powerful, It will be too latq.
It Is not hard to visualize tho horrors of a conflict such as that outlined above.
, There would be tremendous forces on each side, on both land and sea. All the
developments of the last war would be available at the very beginning, together j
with the Improvements made during tho Intervening time.
This Is Just a llttie look behind the curtain of the future. Of course, there
may be world developments to make such a combination Impossible or powerless.
China Is * great world possibility. So is India. Of one thing we may rest J
assured. That Is. that the world cannot settle down comfortably in tho assurance !
of stable International conditions for an indefinite time. Statesmen of the allied
nations In particular mud be alert and far seeing In America we must not drop
too far behind In preparedness, especially on the sea and in the air.

INTERESTING IMMIGRATION
FACTS
Immigration figures for the first year
i nf the new restriction act reveal twrao |
Interesting facts. For the entire period, j
admissions of male Immigrants were
ff.OOO fewer than departures of male !
I
aliens during the same time. Tho j
figures show that 93,000 male tmml-1
grants were admitted and 100.000 do- |
parted for their nallvo lands. But when j
the women are cons.dered, there Is a |
tTerent story. While 100.000 were ad- j
ifTftifrd. only 37,000 departed.
This Is not alarming. In fact, we j
need not worry about It at all.. The I
United States has almost 2.000,000 more
i
men than women, so the admittance of j
ii'ime 69.000 additional women still '
leaves a considerable surplus of m<m
So long as they are of the right type,
there wfll be no eound objection.
Several causes have contributed to
i
the departure of male aliens. Trlnclpal
among them Is the fact that many na- j
. I
lives of the new republics of Furope
?re going home to take part In their
Dew freedom and In the building tip of
their own nations Unemployment here !

WEEK'S CAMPAIGN FOR

JPoetmaster W. W. Irrtn 'JiVm Mow

The most helpful and essential wee*
among the large number that the pee
ple <?f this country are observing tfteee
days will be "Postal Improvement
V.'eek." which k!1 Ibe observed the week
beginning May 1, and It !? hoped by the
postoffice department that the public
will keep In mind the purpose of the
week throughout the entire yoer.
Cooeration between poetal employes
and the public will be the keynote of
"Postal Improvement Week."
"Mall early" la the slogan which the
public should keep In mind. "Hundreds
of clerks from the business house# of
this city make a habit of coming to the
poutofflce around 5 o'clock every day."
eald Postmaster Irwin, "which piles the
mall up In the rhaln room and cauaes
an uneomprehenslbie last minute fush
and It Is with the greatest difficulty
that we are able to get mall out In the
proper tlmo.
"I am sure." Mr. Irwin continued,
"that if the managers of the business
bouses In this city only stopped to con
sider the added work that the postoffice
is compelled to do, they would send
in their mall as early as possible there
by alleviating the rush to a great ex
tent.
"It is the greatest .inh dn the world
to have the postofTl^o function properly
when suc.h a *?t'go quantity of mall IS
brought In so late in the day, and I
Fincerely hope that the public of this
city will keep the purpose of the Postal
Improvement Week In mind throughout
the entire year." ^

My feet get wet and fever comes, and to my bed I go. and lie and gnash my tooth
less gums for long days, In my woe. Hut when I pass the churchyard wall I
shiver and exclaim, "May ]t be long before I fall for yonder sexton's game!"
