Wednesday, July 28, 1920. BRITISH "OFFICIAL SECRETS ACT" AND THE NEW SPIRIT OF RULERS AN INEVITABLE canseqwnce of the dictatorial habits which took possession of government daring the war u the growing disposition to control and censor the conduct of citizens in many new ways. This disposition has always been strong in the armies, bat civilians, fa the governments or oat, hive resisted the extension of censorship- and espionage. During the war, civuuss outran the army in taking up the ways of the czar's bureaucracy. It must have been sweet to them to possess and wield soeh powers, for they are seeking everywhere to write them into the permancrt laws of their countries. Attempts at censorship by the army in time of peace, attempts at suppression or distortion of information by courts or judicial authorities or executive employes, these things are contrary to the fundamental principles of the republic and must be everywhere and at all times exposed and resisted. Bnt to build up a spy system, as part of the government, a spy system conducted by the executive and indiaal departments and the army, seems to be resolved upon by a strong group in every conntry. France, as everybody knows, is plagued with govern ment spies. The united States has at least ns scare 01 them. England is going dangerously far toward destroying many of-the guaranties that have been won through cen times of devastating civil war and political revolution. A very large part of ail the censorships, suppressions, and official lies of war times were foolish and wrong, ignorant and often dangerous through the effect on public feeling and opinion; bat they were tolerated because the majority of the people were bamboozled into accepting the official declaration that they were necessary. Bnt there is no reason why the people should tolerate a continuance or extension of such methods sow that the war is over. Free speech and a free press must be unhin dered, unless they clearly and imminently threaten the public safety. It is right that the state should protect itself from destruction, and the preaching, teaching, and printing of anarchistic doctrine whose end is the destruc tion of the state should be discouraged by pubHc sentiment, restricted, and if need be suppressed by force. But even in connection with such propaganda, it is often true that the best way to meet it is to let ft alone, on the principle of the safety valve. It is rarely good, public poKcyto suppress by force the expresstos of opinion unaccompanied by overt preparations to commit crime against persons, property, or the state. To illustrate what is already happening in England, it is worth while to refer to the pending "Official secrets act" which is designed to take its place permanently on the statute books re Hen of the "Defence of the realm" act which was enacted for war time. The "Official secrets act" has infinite possibilities for harm. It has passed the house of lord and ft is expected that the house of commons will accept it since it is a gov ernment measure. A British newspaper gives the following summary of some of its provisions and their effects: If for any purpose prejudicial to the Interests of th stpu fand that, as the war time acts taaa-ht us. includes .in' opposition or criticism that cabinet ministers may dislike) tou make "any false statement or any omission whMnT knowingly or not you are liable to two years' 1 ai d labor. If you keep any official document yea oaa-ht to return to the authorities say an income tax form two years. If ou msil or associate with, or have the address of anlKdv who has cer been employed by a foreign power to commit an act against the interests of the United Kinsrdom 'a terra which includes every German alive. n ost Russians, to say nothing of all sorts of other for Ltgnerpj two years. If your foreign friend Is only rcaiorably suspected" two years. If mu know anybody who has done any of these ter r b.e ihinps and you edon't tell the police, or Sir Basil Thompson ;, spies, all about It two years. '" f-ial for any of these "offences may, atth. re i i -t of the government, be held in complete secret. And so on. If this amaxing biU presumably the Sroduct of Sir Basil Thompson's fertile brain becomes lw, there is not a newspaper man, not a trade union official, not a man or woman engaged in public affairs at all. but may be elapptd Into jail at any moment for some preposterous "crime against the "security of the state." Since the United States in many ways is following the lead of Great Britain in its governmental, political, and economic evolution, it is to be expected that some such measure, adapted somewhat to the limits of American tol erance, will be urged by a certain group in this country. It is well for citizens to be forewarned, and to be constantly on their guard against every attempt on the part of a gov erning clique to enact broadly worded laws that may give warrant to unscrcpnloss officials to attempt grave injus tices against those who differ with them. We have bureaucracy enough in this country now. It is time to be gin breaking it down and getting back to something ap proximating a real representative and responsible government. A Modern Excelsior SCHOOL DAYS Copyright 1920. by McClure Newspaper Syndicate. ByDWIG iiliEI Arms And Decollete LED by J. W. Weatherford, one of their prominent towns men, the citizens of Flagstaff, Ariz, have decided they are going to have a road built to the top of the San Fran cisco mountains if the state corporation commission will give its consent. And knowing the progressive spirit of Arizona no one seriously believes the commission will deny the authority to construct the highway. The San Francisco mountains tower high above the deserts of Arizona and the highest peaks poke their noses into the eternal snows. From these elevations six states of this union and a part of old Mexico are visible. The people in the vicinity of the mountains could neither ask nor have a better summer playground than these mountains afford. In a few hours, with a good road bmlt above the heat lice, the tired and perspiring resident could find a place of rest and rejuvenation in these hills. The southwest is learning to use its hilltops as places of refuge from the sordid daily grind. It was no mere figure of speech when the singer of old said: "I win lift up mine eyes unto the hills whence cometh help." o How that we have been told that the secret of long life is to take life easy will someene please rise and tell us now.

Bedtime Stories For The Little Ones L UNCLE WIGGILY AHD THE BABBEE. By HOWARD B. CARLS. 0 NCB upon a time, not ss many years ago. there lived la Wood land, near the Orange Ice moem talns a nice eld pig gentleman, who kept; a barber shop. He was a very fat. sleepy sort of pig. and sometimes when he was lathering the whiskers of Mr. StubtaU, the bear gentleman, or trimming the beard of Uncle But ter, the goat gentleman, this pig bar ber would fallsleep. And some times, when heofd this, soapy lather from the brush would get in Mr. Stub tail's or TJncle Butter's mouth. "I declarer said Mr. StubtaU to Uncle Wiggily one day. after the pig barber had gotten soap in the bear gentleman's mouth twice; "I declare tf there was another barber la town, I'd go to him to get shaved." "Yea, Mr. Wuff Wnff Is not a very lively barber." agreed Uncle Wlgglly. The pig gentleman's name was Mr. Wuff Wuff. as I might have told you before if I had thought of it One day when Grandpa Goosey Gan der went in the pig barber shop to nave some or nis tail leetaers tnnuneo. Mr. Wuff Wuff did halt of them and then he fell asleep, knocking over a bottle of bayrum. so that a few drops of it splashed In Grandpa Goosey's eye. This is too muens- quackea urana i Goosey. "Wake up, Mr. Wuff Wuff! Why do you sleep so much?" "Ob. ho! Yum: Yum! rum!" grunted the pig barber "I guess if s because I don't have customers enough to keep me busy," he went on. "If X had something to do every minute of the day, I could keep awake. But you nai gentlemen only come in once in a while to have a shampoo, hair cut or shave, and I get In the habit of falling: asleep between times." Til tell Uncle Wiggily about it said Grandpa Goosey. "Maybe he can think up a way to make you keep busy so yov won't slumber so much." And when Uncle Wiggily was told I what the pig barber had said, the bunny gentleman knew at once wnat to do. "That pig barber should advertise," said the bunny ancle. "He wants to have his shop better known. Why. all the stylish shops have a red. white and blue striped pole out In front, so It can be seen tar up and down -the street. Than when anybody wants a haircut or a shave, they look for a red, white and blue pole. like my rheumatism crutch, and they know where to go. If you had something like that, Mr. Wuff Wuff. you would be so busy you'd have no time to go to sleep." "Do yoa think so?" asked the pig gentleman barber, holding the lather brush up la front of his face so the bunny would not see him yawn. Tra sare of it" said Uncle Wig gily.
