A GLORIOUS RECORD
Probably the prize knitter of the
North American continent Is a little
old lady of Goderlch, Ontario. She Is
83 years old and totally blind. From
February 1, 1915, to Juno 30, 1918 she
knitted 720 pairs Of socks for Canad
This patriotic old woman lost her
sight only four years ago. Judging
by the record of her achievement in
the knitting line since that time, she
wasted no days in repining or despair.
We do not know whether she had
been knitting before she lost her
sight, but her record shows that she
has never been Idle since. There are
many record months. Last April she
complced 25 pairs of socks. There
were 17 pairs in May and 20 pairs In
June. Her proud neighbors report
that she is still knitting ahead as
busily as ever.
No one has to assist this woman at
any stage of the knitting. She turns
heels as perfectly and as readily as
many a younger woman with two
Let no person say carelessly "Well,
what of It? Probably she can't do
much of anything else." There nre
too many people In the world today
who are not doing tho one job they
can do best of all as thoroughly or
as cheerfully as they might. Tho op
portunity to help win tho war Is lim
ited by the will to servo, not by tho
physical condition or position In life.
The little, old woman sets a good ex
ample. KEEP AWAY FROM WASHINGTON
It is said that tho city of Washing
ton may put up a "Keep Out" sign
before long. It it docs, tho nation
need, not take It as a gratuitous pleco
of insolence. Americans may have a
traditional right to visit their capi
tal "whenover they feel llko it, and see
the governmental wheels going round
but this Is no tlmo to stand on techni
cal rights. It Is a serious condition
that confronts tho capltol city.
Never has thoro boon a parallel In
America to tho congestion from
which Washington is now suffering.
Xs tho center of ull our normal gov
ernment activities, plus all our ab
normal war activities, Including a
large part of tho important business
, operations of tho United States,
Washington Is an oxtroraoly busy
place,, requiring tho prosonco of a
hugo army of ofllco workers und be
sieged I continually by an Invading
army of business man. For this nec
essary steady and transient popula
tion, Washington homes and hotels
do not nearly sulllce. Congress has
voted $10,000,000 for new houses, and
it Is doubtful whother that will oaso
tho sit tuition sulllclently.
Added to alt tho necessary jam of
humanity there Is an army of people
who go tliero on business errands
that could bo done as woll by wire
or mall, and of curious or fashionable
persons seeking diversion. They use
necessary living space und bother
bnsy otllclals at their work. It Is this
army whoso presence Washington
most keenly resents, und which It
seeks to bur.
Congress may tako action In tho
matter. Or tho prcsldont himself may
act. The situation might be met by
an executive order similar to that
which bars alien enemies from water
fronts and war factory neighborhoods.
Every arrival will then bo hold up
and forced tq show legitimate reason
for his presence. It would probably
arouse a lot of criticism, but it would
bo a good thing.
Looking over tho rucks of maga
zines at a newsdealer's an observer
noted five periodicals devoted to avi
ation. Doubtless still others are pub
lished. The five wero there because
,the dealer confidently expected tho
public to buy them. Ono might be an
accident, or even two. Flvo denoted
a definite demand.
The latest word about' airplane pro
duction comes from W. J. Workman
of tho Handley-Paigne Co., who says
we. can make enough airplanes by
April 1, 1919, to defeat the Oermans
within 30 to 60 days, it we start now.
Every one can be delivered to France
under its own power, carrying tho full
military load of men, guns and
bombs, No shipping space would be
needed for any part of them. Capronl,
Italian expert, expects to see the suc
cessful trans-Atlantic flights begin
within three months. This seems ov
er sanguine because of weather con
ditions thrco months from now. No
one doubts that within another year
the trans-Atlantic flying will be suc
A few days ago, Major C. A. Rhine
hard in the Jolly Roger mado a rec
ord crosscountry flight of 124 miles
In 63 minutes'.
Eighteen airplanes built In tho
United States, equipped with Liberty
motors, are reported by Pershing to
have made their first reconnaissance
behind tho German lines and return
ed without loss.
These things aro but beginnings
nnd promises, but they add to tho be
ginnings in Flanders, Plcardy and at
the Marne. They add to the groping
beginnings of order in Russia,
Our fledglings show up well In their
first flights, however. Tho sky of
Germany will yet be darkened with
their fast-flying, effective flocks.
THE FISHERMAN'S FIGHT
The announcement of the govern
ment that it intends to protect our
Ashing boats off the New England
coast emphasizes tho seriousness of
tho submarine menace. It also brings
to mind tho bravo work dono by small
Ashing craft In British waters. The
U-boat did its best to drlvo English
fishermen from the sea. That it could
not succeed in Its campaign of fright
fulness with "the little ships" Is just
ono more detail In England's glorious
The small, slow-going fishing
smacks have piled their business not
only "as usual," but better than us
ual, so that In the dark days the peo
ple of tho British Isles could eke out
their scanty meat ration with an
abundant supply of Ash.
Many tale3 aro told though few In
proportion to the whole record of
these little boats encountering sub
marines, putting up a plucky fight
against them, and frequently worst
ing tho hugo wolves of the sea. An
official report of a naval officer de
scribes one such "fisherman's light."
The llttlo group of six attached trawl
ers fought courageously until the
leading one had only 10 rounds of am
munition. The signal to "rum" was
ready as a last resort, when three di
rect hits ut vital spots on tho subma
rine won tho light.
Tho naval officer who reported the
engagement concluded his official
statement with these words:
"This was a fisherman's fight, and
without doubt they put up a right
stout ono. I deem it an honor to have
been In command of them."
Such arc tho British fishermen. Wo
liavo faith that our own llshormon
possess tho samo spirit. They, too,
lovo tho sea and will uphold its tra
ditions of honor and freedom.
WILL SPAIN BE NEXT?
Spain Is on the ragged edgo with
Gormany. It has delivered an ulti
matum stating that for ovory ship of
hers sunk by a German submarlno,
she will selzo u German ship interned
in hor ports.
This looks like business. Moreov
er, it tho Germans play their usual
gamo o? Irritating their former
friends iustoad o' pacifying them, It
will not bo long before Spain joins
tho lengthening list of allies.
Spain has been thoroughly soaked
In Gorman propaganda for u long
tlmo. But tho difficulty with falso
propaganda Is that sooner or later It
clashes with known facts. Tho facts
stand, and tho propaganda goes to
The sooner Spain finds out tho
truth about Germany, tho hotter.
When onco sho roallzos how sho has
been duped, tho rost will follow In
Come on In, lilspanla! Tho wator's
And your oxhlblts would add so
much to tho plcturusquonoss of that
triumphal procession through the
streets of Borl'n.
BUILD A FOOD RESERVE
America elects to sit at tho com
mon table, as it shares in tho common
dufenso of doinocracy. Tho American
pooplo, as a whole, aro henceforth ex
pected to udopt an honor ration of two
pounds of sugar per person pur
month. Even now they are moro for
tunato than somo of our allies.
England, whoso shipping Is proving
tho salvation of civilization, is on a
similar allowance, but it is not a vol
untary ono. Franco and Italy are
each limited to one pound per poison
per mouth, and even that pound is
hard to como by. Tho world's sugar
crop is short.
No sugar Is coming from central
Europe whero, for decades, the sugar
beet crop has beon of major Import
ance. None la bolng shipped from
Java, becauso tho tonnago usually In
that trado can be employed to more
advantage elsewhere. The supply
from Hawaii and from the West In
dies 1b reduced for similar reason.
The Fronch sugar beet territory Is
largely in Gorman hands.
The burden of maintaining tho al
lied supply falls increasingly upon
America. This country must save
sugar, as well as meat and wheat.
Tho food controllers for tho United
States, Great Britain, France and
Italy cannot administer tho food prob
lem on tho .basis of a ono year's war.
If victory is to bo assured they must
look years ahead.
The people of tho United States
can render their sons and brothers at
the front, and their allies, no greater
service than by building up In this
country a food reservo as Insurance
against posslblo crop failures else
where Before tho war this country
supplied but 10 per cent of tho food
doficlt In the nations now allied. Last
year the United States and Canada
supplied approximately 60 per cent
of tho deficit, and the 1918 crops
must provide a still larger proportion
of the amount required.
The agricultural laborers of the
land aro going by hundreds of thou
sands to tho trenches and the muni
tion plants. This year, in all proba
bility, America reaches the zenith of
Its food production. There Is Impera
tive need to save, and to continue
Food, after all, mu3t win the war.
