If the summariza tion by the New Statesman of condi tions under Bolshevik rule :'s correct, the Holsheviki will enter the Prinres' Island p.irley witli an impressive roc - j ord of accomplishment. xne ew statesman js a radical hut highly respectable orsan comparable to the 'Nation and the Xew Republic in America. It says: "Order in Russia is more thorough ly established than at any time since the fall of the czardom, and food dis tribution is better organized than at any time during the whole war. Fac tories are restarting work so far as raw materials can be obtained. The management of factories by commit tees of employes failed and manage ment by the Soviets (with consulta tive employes' committees for certain purposes,) has been substituted. "The Bolsheviks are, although they have been hampered by undesirable tools, cleaning the country of bribery and corruption. The terror has ceased and has been exaggerated. Had he nine not been in bed with his wound there would have been no terror it any rate, in Moscow. Xo execution has taken place in Moscow for two months. During the terror 400 executions took place there, of which over CO per c?nt were of corrupt Soviet officials. Cor ruption is almost stamped out. In efficiency is being remedied by re cruitment among the educated classes. "The Red army has become a dis ciplined force. Its numbers are not less than 600,000. It has rifles, ma chine guns, and cartridges in plenty, but not much artillery ammunition. "Many of the professional and petty bourgeoise have gone over to the Bol sheviks. In the large towns the work men are generally supporters of the Soviets. The peasants were for a 'ong time hostile. But the formation of the 'poverty committees' which admin ister the affairs of every large village in the interests of the peasants has changed that," WEATHER DAILY CALENDAR Compiled for the Journal by the Weather Bureau Office.)

A severe cold is often followed by a rough cough for which Chamberlain's Cough Remedy has proven especially valuable. Mrs. F. W. Olsen. Marys ville, Mo., writes: "About two years ago my little boy Jean caught a severe cold and coughed dreadfully for days. I tried a number of cough medicines but nothing did any good until I gave him Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. It relieved his covigh right away and be fore he had finished taking one bottle he was cured.

Meat forms uric acid which excites and overworks the kidneys in their ef forts to filter it from the system. Regular eaters of meat must flush the kidneys occasionally.

After-the-War Problems Affect Telephone Service While the nation was under the stress incident to win ning the war, we asked our subscribers and the public to be patient with the telephone service and to limit its use as much as practicable in order that we might handle the urgent busi ness of the nation efficiently. Now that the armistice has been signed and hostilities have ceased, we are confronted with problems of the recon struction period, which are equally as serious and which will require time and patience for solution. The policy of frankness which wTe have practiced prompts us to make it clear that the difficulties under which we are now operating are such that it will be many months before we can bring the service back to the standard of efficiency pre vailing prior to the European war. These difficulties are the same as those confronting other business enterprises. We outline them briefly so that you may understand why your service has not become normal overnight. More than 850 of our most skilled, trained, technical men volunteered for service in the army and a large majority of them are still in Europe. Very few of them returned, and we cannot expect the balance to return soon. Few men of this type have been available and those we are training by no means equal our demand. This shortage of experienced technical men hampers our plans for extensions to plant and in turn delays installations. Lacking the men we are also lacking the material needed to enlarge and extend our plants. True the government's de mands have practically ceased, but equipment must first be en gineered, then ordered and then manufactured before it can be installed. This involves time and if prompt delivery could be made many months would elapse before we could receive equipment for imperative needs. This is a situation confront ing all telephone companies and one over which we have ab solutely no control. The abnormal increase in the volume of telephone calls due to war activities created a need for a greater number of operators and wTe have been diligently building up an enlarged operating force. Other industries were seeking girl and wo men workers and the inflated wages offered for emergency work attracted some of our operators and made it increasingly difficult to secure the required number of young women. When this situation was very well in hand last fall the In fluenza epidemic played havoc with our forces and our losses from illness and death are still alarming. As a result of this combination of circumstances, the percentage of new and in experienced operators is large and there is now a serious short age although our training schools are graduating large classes every month. Although our service has suffered from these causes the pubile has been considerate and we have been able to handle a heavier traffic than seemed humanly possible and have in stalled promptly and operated efficiently the telephone plants required by the government at army camps and other similar institutions. The situation confronting our service is more serious than it was when fighting was in progress. The public has relaxed from its tension and is inclined to expect our service to at once assume its pre-war efficiency. We deem it our duty to make this frank statement and urge you to continue the con servation of the service which proved so helpful during the time of our nation's greatest need. We are operating the telephone system as agents for the federal government under the supervision of the Postmaster General, and our loyal organization is making a patriotic ef fort to perfect the service. Your continued co-operation and encouragement will be appreciated. J. T. PEELE, District Ma narer. SOUTHERN BELL TELEPHONE AND TELEGRAPH COMPAN
