MARCH 19, 1918.
Seizing Holland's ships is a serious matter, it is
fürt applied to a neutral nation. It is the Jirst act
of the sort thut the allies have committed. Uut It
should be thoroughly iimbu stood that there is morl
and U üal justiiication.
The so-called Anariun law, a recognized part of
international j!iriirudence. i-erinitn the seizure of
neutral property y a l'dlierent for puldic uso in
rner'ency. Germany availed hers..-" of that riht la
the Kranco-Prus.-ian war, seizing British ships and
uin them in tier peratins auaint Fraiue.

The VC Is ar wanted primarily to carry food.
They will bo u--'d y th I'nited States in her reat
ta.k of provisioning I.'urope, the neutrals as well a
th allies. It is, in fact. Germany's persistent inter
ference with food shipments from America tu her
neutral rui-hburs that constit iits the stronfcest Justi-Ju-ation.
Sliip after ship has l.e-n iink. even when arryin;
r.-lian r h-f carcn-s, an J vh'n carefully avoiding
ontliit uith thf arrotrant blockade laus laid down by

xrain for Su itz rland. She was enKa(.; d in iicjn-war
traile to a neutral nation. Sh was enroute to a port
to which (iiriuany had prcinis.d saf passace. She
was i)Utsnl- the jirohil'ited zone. The U-hoat com
mander had examined her papers, and knew ab
solutely the nature and destination of her cargo. And
he deliberately destroyed her.
This flagrant ot'fenve is nerely another illustration
of a lawless program upon which Germany has evi
dently determined. Her l'-boat depredations are
actuated by two principles. First, she wants to keep
food and military supplies from her enemies. Second,
she wants to destroy all the shipping afloat. hr

It will be much easier to ;et people to inest tlielr

it would be to p't thm to be altruistic after doing

I puny. Anything previously done of this nature is at a
i tri.'le compared with the dne sonn to b made, and
by th" i;o eminent, fr.r our third Liberty loan.
It Is to be a psychological drive, carefully planne. 1 to
mak th stronifet possible appeal to the nation's-
heart through th.e metlium of the e e. It's primarily
a. poster campaign. NVer In history have posters play
ed so bi- a part In any undertaking, and there's lit
tle chance (Jf any citizen escaping thm. Some 3.O0C.
000 bi' postern are alreatly beinj; distributed. They
will be idastered f er every city and hamlet in the J
United States. In addition. :here will be 5.000,000 win
dow sticker?. 50,000, 000 poster stamps and 1C.000.
000 badges ready for the c penlns day of the cam
paign. The pictures have been made hy the het-t artistü
in the country. There la said to be no question of their
pullinq power. There'8 so mach variety In them that it
will be. hard for any man. n j matter what his particu
lar class or Interest, to dode their appeal.
There's one poster, for example, depicting a reat
battleship, yin beside a wharf bustling with war ac
tivity, with airplanes Hying overhead, and the motto,
"Provide the sinews of war buy Liberty bonds!'
Another represent Ahraham Lincoln, with the flttin?
words inscribed: "So that government by the people, of
the people and for the people shall not perish from th
earth." 1
There is one for iural sections, depicting a farmer
boy in khaki blading farewell to his father, and pay
ing: "C'ood-by, dad' I'm off to fight for Old Glory
You buy government bonds."
And there is a picture of Independence hall, with
the old Liherty hell in one corner, and the injunctior.:
"Ring it auain; buy war bonds."
Yes. it's going to he a great campaign. And there's
no doubt that the response will be worthy of the effort.
We'll surprise ourselves by th- number of billion? we
roll up to finance the distant and difficult but absolutely
certain ictory. St. Joseph county will do her share,
and phe'll do it, too immediately following the "war
chest" drive, from -.vhich all investment features of a
monetarv nature are eliminated, yet contributing to the
Liberty loan's cause. We need to get it out of ojr
heads, somewhat, here in South Pond, that this move
ment or that, to help win the war, has any right of way
anywhere except that of Uie fellows who shoulder
the "muskets."
"Come Take Pot Luck Wifh Us
Ily James J. Montague.
Close the ginmills; can the bars, the bay of brink has fled:
For yonder at the capitol the bemon Kum lies dead!
Hereafter people in New York who still red liquor use
Will hae to get their friends in Maine to forward them their booze!
Stand by to bid John Parleyeorn a hist and fond goodbye,
Farewell to old King Alcohol the state is goimr dry!
Fill the mugs! bring forth the steins! decant ihe foaming Jlaon
Send out a sturdy messen-er to Hag the water wagon!
The Demon Kum is wide awake, and in a fresh attack
lias driven out the drys and turned young Prohibition back!
And, as of old, intoxicants in every form shall flow
In every town throughout the state, from Quo-pie to Puffalo!
Take the towel from the bar; hang up crape instead;
Once again within a week the Demon Kum is dead!
The tilt, the totter and the tide, the jag and souse and bun;
Shall vanish swiftly from our midst; their evil day is done!
Farewell the soak; farewell the tank; farewell the staggering stew!
They'll be interned if not interred; John Parleycorn is through!
Tip the tipple: rush the can; set 'em up once more!
The late lamented Demon Kum has risen from the floor!
And with a bottle in each hand and fury on his face
Is standing, flushed with vic tory in his accustomed place.
Once more corn liquor circulates among all drinking men,
Put cheer the Demon while you may he'll soon be dead again!

the war ends, she herself will have a chance for
supremacy in ocean trade. This criminal purpose must
be f ru t rated.
So far as Holland is concerned, it appears that that
country will not really resent the seizure. Holland
his long been between the devil and the deep sea.
She micht show a benevolent friendship for the allies,
but doesn't dare because she fears Germany. It is
German threats that have induced Holland to keep her
ships .;o Ion;,- inactive in American ports. She protest"!
formally now. n- a matter of course, but it seeret!y
relieved at th out' ome.
If her ships are : unk now. it is the United States
that will be the loser. F.very ship will be fully paM j
for. and those that remain will be returned when tlw
emergency is past. Anil Holland herself will now have
a better guarantee of a s'lfla ieiit food supply.
Attention of the cepartment of agriculture having
been called to occasional hih prices that are be
ing charged for seed corn in certain localities, has
determined, if possible, to rtop it. The departmeu.
recognizes that the seed corn shortage would have
an adverse effect upon the production of corn in
1U1S, .and that the price of seed corn has an important
bearing on the maintenance of acreage. Fmphasij
has been plated on the conservation ,f an ample
supply of seed regardless of expense and effort to ob
tain It. It is not the intention of the department to
indicate as unreasonable, juices that are necessary to
provide a fair return for ?11 efforts that have been
made to conserve seed. A fair price should be de
termined by the actual service performed in obtain
ing and conserving such se.'d.
Certain sections of the country, particularly east
and south of the main corn belt, were more favored
than the other.- by the fall conditions of 1917. The
territory including Ohio. Indiana, Illinois, northern
Missouri, northern Kansas, and all the states north
of these suffered most severely. Other sections of the
countrv apparently can provide for their own re
quirements without j-rect ditticulty, and therefore,
relatively lower prices in those sections should prevail.
The food administration has announced its inten
tion to take such action as may be necessary to prevert
speculation or profiteering on the part of seedsmen.
Upon recepit of specific information of extortionate
prices being charged for seeds, such cases will be in
vestigated and recommendation made for such action
as the conditio. s require. The department appears to
mean business.

Lieut. M. J. Maioney of New Haven, Conn., serving
his country in France, was blue because his friends

he'd like "a gootl, long letter from home."
He will soot; net that letter. It will be ;t good one,

concerning a proposed new calendar
by which the year would have :1CC
days, divided into 12 months, six of
which would have 30 days and the
other six 31 days-each. The w eeks
would consist of six days, including
live "working days" and one "rest
ing day." Thus there would be 61
weeks in this new calendar year.
My opinion is that Jullu.i Caesar
whose greatest achievement was
not laying the foundation of impe
rial Pome, but putting chaos out of
the calendar would turn in his
grave at the suggestion of an at
tempt to thrust :!G' days into a
space of time that cannot contain
even the utJ5 l-l days that lie as
signed to it without overcrowding.
When nature set the earth spin
ning on its axis and at the same time
speeding around the sun. she saw no
necessity for making the two mo
tions chronologically commensurate
i. e.( she took no pains to have an
even number of axial turns con
tained in a single revolutional cir
cuit or in even number of days in a
year. To have done so would have
been somewhat like requiring an
athlete, in running a mile, to take
exactly 1.7'0 steps each three feet
long. Although such an arrange
ment would unquestionably be a
great convenience for almanac mak
ers, as well as for race track time
keepers, the things are not done that

Germany has plawct the master card of brutalisrt.
.luin Serbia, bleeding Delgium, wounded France
and denuded Kusia, all have felt the crunching cct
of militarism's iron 1 eel; all have been seered to the
heart with the burning barbarism of the Hun. Uut
Kultur only now has achieved the pinnacle of in
humanitv. Armenia, helple.-s, has been handed over to
the ravishing Turk.
Of all the lust-laden demands which Germany
placed before peuce-seeking Kussia, here was the
most hendisli. Kvoi I'tlgium's martyrdom is surpassed.
Armenia's story it; the rrea;est tragedy of vvor.d
history. Massacres of a, bygone day have been re
enacted. Christians have endured death and the har
rowing suffering of most inhuman tortures at the han 1
of the infidel.
Uut until now Turkey has controlled only a part
of rmeniu. Its evil larlarism has been limited to the
unfortunate provinces which were left behind when

and the plants. When Caesar estab
lished the "Julian year he gave the
world its first scientific calendar, al
though he got the fundamental idea
from the old Kgyptians.
The problem was. and always will
be. to keep the calendar ch'tes as
close as possible in accord with the
natural point of beginning of the
year, cfor the northern hemisphere,
which is the populous half of the
globe) that pednt being the vernal
equinox, when the sun crosses the
equator coming northward after its
winter excursion into the southern
sky. To start with we might have;
the vernal equinox fall in any month
we chose, and on any dav of that
month, but on' e fixed it ought to
remain constant. Thus, as now ar
ranged the equinox falls on March
21. and all our almanac dates are
set on that frame. If the equinox
drifted forward or baokwaid in the
calendar, agricultural, as well as
all other pfTairs. would be upset.
Caesar broocht his new calendar
into accord with the vernd equinox.
and undertook to keep it in accord !
crepancy between the equinox and
the almanac is too troublesome they
can easily correct it.
