When Mr. Wilson was presi? dent tho administration took tin attitude thai the present generation bIiouUI pay till <>f the huge indebtedness incurred oh a it-suit of mir entry into the \V,,rld war. I nder Mr. Hnrd ing's administration it ih pro pOSetl that these debts lie liqui il.ited within a period of twen? ty live vents. In addition the allies owe iik ahout eleven bil? lions of ilolliirH which we may never hco again. The eleven billions must necessarily come from the pockclfl of Hie present generation, us it has already vanished. lint why Ibis frantic haste to liijuiilate our own debt? Why i (he insistent attempt to middle the whole burden upon those] who have done the Buffering?] Why iunke tins generation both stiller mill pay while (he next generation will have nothing to do Imi reap Hie boUUlHs! America did not enter the war l.roin choice, or through any bc-nevoloril or chivalrous desire to aid England or Franco when i lien backs were to the wnll in a losing light. the govern in.in ami congress knew that without American aid for the allies Germany would win, und tli ii (he next step of a victo? rious Teutonic army would lie to overrun this country or to drive our ships ami commerce < rum the seas. These are the facts in u few words. Ii is therefore plan to any ooe of normal intelligence ih it woftiuglil not only for our . i U es, hut (or the benefit and preservation of generations o( Americans yet to come. Win ih.-ii, should we of today us stimo all of the burdens. Why should future generations reap the benefits without any ot the hardships? Why not extend this liquidation over a period of fifty or a hundred years, and lighten to some extent the bur lii in- of taxation that are press? ing mi heavily upon the people ;>l t iduyf Why innko slaves of I he people of this generation in order that those of the next may live in ureater nflluonce? Why make a hundred million people nf today the royal goats for it. is ? of tomorrow? Pity tho spoiled child. It is not responsible for its parents. If you don't wont tobeknown as a nuisance don't run around with a grievance. Some pooplo keep a light burning in their room at night in order to be ablo to see in the dork. Beware of the stranger who !effusively offers you his baud. Ho wants you to put something in it. To he popular you should Iis. ten to the troubles of Others. They have no time to waste on yours. If our public men could write their own histories this country would be overflowing with wise ones. True, the eyes of the world are centered upon Washington, hut we suspect they are begin? ning to ache. It's easy to toll a lie, but sometimes it in mighty hard for a follow to square himself by telling another. It isn't to he wondered at that some men ore unable lo with? stand prosperity. They never have a chance. Don't allow the other fellow to vallito your own time. Mo might embnrass you by over? shooting the mark. Wise ones lull us that love conies unbidden, but those are 'tho days when a fat bunk ac? count ticcellerntes its arrival. A disastrous rail strike would have been a bad beginning for that disarmament meet So mi one must hav e thought of it just in time There's a reason why wise I people are not averse tospeok |ing of their own faults. It knocks tho props from under their critics. Reluctantly we aril coming to the conclusion that tho good old fashion housewife has about eeasod to exist. She objects to heilig termed eld fashioned. Why can't some genius pro? duce a car that will run on kerosene oil? Perhaps then the trust would produce real gas in order to put the oil man out of business No doubt the average preach er would bo quitii indignant if we were to refer to him as mi invaluable aid to tho divorce courts.
