But, 1-enine ami Trotsky have not proven their theories of government air correct n-eauso thev have defeated foreign invaders. Ix»nine and lrotsky deny national spirit. They say it destroys the interests of the working: clashes. But, it is to nationalism the} owe their present success. The rule of revolutions is always the same. The test comes after peace has been declared, not in the midst of hostilities. Foreign foes solidify a revolutionary move ment more than all the theories of revolutionary leaders. Kolchak, Denekin and Yudenich. tho Russians them aelves. accepted foreign subeidies. In the eyes of the Rus sian people that made them agents of other nations, seek in* to dictate Russia's course of action. So there no difficulty raising Bolshevik armies to keep alien influences out of holy Russia. The soviet government at Moscow is now the dominant power in Russia. There is no doubt of that. If the world must fight famine with Russian wheat, the Bolshevik gov ernment mav have to be recognized. But, that docsn t . mean Bolshevism will Ih> given a permanent hold on Russia. " It means scarcely more than formal assurance to tho Rus sian people that the world intends to let Russia s domestic affairs alone. _ , Then, for the first time. Russia can peacefully judge Bol shevism on its merits and demerits. I*hc Russian people have shown they will not swap horses while crossing a Stream. After the stream is crossed, it will be different. l'ou needn't ask n jnan whether he likes his job. Ob serif the quality of his work and yon will know. It was Tolstoy who told the story of the man who went to a spinner to buy some fine threads. Hut the threads the spinner showed him werf not fine enough f*r him. •The spinner said: "if these are not fine enough for you, then here are .some others that will suit you.' "And she pointed to a bare spot. The man declared he eoold not see them. ♦The spinner replied: 'The fact that you can not see them proves that they are very fine; I can't see them myself.' The fool was rejoiced, and ordered some more of the Mine thread, and paid down the money for it." The story might be a satire on the extravagance of the Meent times. Flush folks demand the finest of everything. "They scorn cotton and call fpr silk. The moderate-priced article is rejected with suspicion because it doesn't cast enough. The unnecessary things they buy are as futile in their wwilfwnnmr as the invisible threads which, very likely, the vain and foolish man attempted to spin into something equivalent to a $2O silk shirt.

He ha* his world, his workj , hia problems, as we have. % How far does his world extend? How far into his en-; Tirotiment does his power of perception penetrate? He doesn't know you are near. Your immensity is beyond his , comprehension. On the other side of the hill, a stone's throw away, is; Mother ant hill. The creature under your observation dots not know It exists. He will complete the span of his Wicf life without ever learning what is beyond the little sphere of his activities. How like the ant are humans! What wonderfully im menee things there may be in the universe of which hu cannot conceive any more than the ant can conceive tt the human sphere. There may be even a race of beings m high above man as man is above the ant. Politicians don't much care what Hoover stands for note, but they wonder how much he would stand for if iUcted. "It was not the frayed and patched little garments that Sagged from their emaciated frames that made my heart •che," Zoe Beckley, special European correspondent, cabled. She was writing pf the starved children of Central Europe, the little human beings doomed to death by starva tion unless the good people of this country give liberally of their nickels, dimes and dollars. "Nor was it the broken boots that let in no much cold, nor the blueness of their hands," Miss Beckley continued. "It was the look in their faces, the Skin stretched tight over their cheek bones, the terrible brightness of their small eyes. "I shall never forget their eyes. It was a look both of terror and of avid eagerness. No kiddie should have such eyes!" Please read that again—NO KIDDIE SHOULD HAVE SUCH EYES! Picture in your heart, and soul, and mind, the eyes of a poor, little child, starving to death for want of a crust of bread. And multiply that picture by five million, and you have the real story of the awful famine in Central Europe, the terrible want for food in lands where tiny human beings are falling like wilted flowers, sacrifices to the demon Hunger. // the British pound continues to drop in foreign ex change it might be well to rename it the ounce. "The communist revolution grows," says the Communist International. Moscow Bolshevik organ. "In France enor mous demonstrations have started; in Italy the struggle boils. In America the working class comes out on the streets." Without going into the matter of thf» French demonstra tions or the Italian boils, it is safe to admit that American workers come out on the streets. Yes, siree! Actually come out on the streets! Most of 'em come out every rjpon. All of 'em come out every after noon right after the whistle blows, and hustle for home. Then aga.n, iater on, they come out on the street and make for the movie.

Almo How ami Where? And How iMng WiU the Farmer be the Goat? BY DANA SLEETH The most important problem confronting the world today is: "When Do We Eat?" It is the most important problem confronting thin country. And it i.s a problem that in not discusaed, nor even under stood, by one city paper in a hundred. City workers continually cry out against high food prices and as continually demand shorter working hours, higher wuge.s. more luxuries. In short, the city folks imagine that the farmers are going to indefinitely continue to work sixteen hours a day for about half what city folks demand for six hours' work. J Did you ever stop to think what would happen if tht farmers struck? And do you expect farmers to continue to work long hours for love of country? Or did you imagine that the farmers were getting rich? If you did. you are iimorant indeed.
