The other fellow's in the way
AVhun victory has crowned the day,
With him wo do not wish to allure
The aiilendor of the spotlight's s'"r;
We'd like to have It widely Known
To iia the praise -belongs alone
Hut Vhen defeat Is onr's to t;ike.
Few have the couroire not to make
The oid excuse and place the blame
I'pon the other fellow's name.
Since first the fall of man took place.
This trait has marred the human rac
The other felbrvv drops from siRht
When everything is goinff riKht,
The plaudits and the round of cheers
Are not intended for his ears
Hut let us falter, as we may.
And lose by careless work or play.
FVw have the courage then to own
The fault belongs to them alone.
(Copyright. 1!21. by Edstnr A. Ouest.)
The test of man Is not the way
He smiles on his victorious day,
It's how he stands to pay the cost
When he has made his fight anil lost.
In failure's hour he merits fame
Who does not seek to dodcre the blame.
Oh, boy of mine, whate'er you do,
Whate'er of failure comes to yon.
Blame not the other man, but take
The censure just for manhood's sake.
THE GLORY OF A NATION
FAILURE OF U. S. NAVY TO SEIZE
U-117 IN 1918, "WHEN FOUND AT '
SEA OFF VIRGINIA, IS REVEALED
German Submarine That Sent
U. S. Vessels to Bottom Es
caped From Submarines.
ONE HUNDRED and forty-five years is a short age for a
nation. Compared with countries of the old world, a
nation whose birth was less than a century and a half
ago is a mere youngster in the great family of nations. And it
if one of the miracles of history that a government should in
Mich a short span of time develop from a little group of strug
gling frontier states into a nation of transcendent position,
power and importance.
The United States of America has just celebrated her 145th
anniversary and the occasion should tie something more than
a holiday for picnics and noise-making. It would be more to
point, particularly in these reconstruction times, if the observ
ances were -of a solemn and serious nature. We Americans
who have inherited the institutions built by the blood, toil and
wisdom of our forefathers, have come to take them too much
for granted. We appreciate their merits and virtues too little
and condemn their faults too much. We have tolerated among
us too many radicals who forever magnify the evils of our sys
tem of government and spread the seed of discontent. We
have permitted these preachers of discord to go about unchal
lenged when patriotism and self-protection demand that we
give them combat combat not with arms but with argument.
The most effective weaDon to use aeainst the mouthings of
those who would overthrow our government is the simple story
of the achievements of that very government.
It is no accident .that the United States within the short
period of her national existence has risen to the rank of a great
power and has established a moral leadership that makes her
the dominant force of the world. It is no accident that she
outrivals all other nations, even those that are age-old, in
wealth and capital, resources and opportunity. It is no acci
dent that her people are recognized as the freest on earth, that
from her earliest days she has been a haven for the oppressed,
the citadel of democracy and the shrine of liberty. It is no
af ident that the cause of human rights has progressed in tri
rmrh in this country and that we have achieved the nearest
approach to a "government of the people, by the people and
for the people" that has ever been achieved in all time. All
of these things have been because of the fundamental Tightness
of bur government, and let those whose confidence is sometimes
tr.aken by misgivings remember that truth.
The Fourth of July, the natal day of the first republic,
should be an occasion, more than any other day, to remind
ourselves of the estate our nation has reached because of the
firm foundation of principles and ideals upon which her gov
ernment is built.
A JOB FOR A WOMAN

it wise to follow in the wako of each

the submarines became quite chummy j

AN ILLINOIS woman has just been appointed "municipal
housekeeper" in her town and has entered upon her
duties. These do not consist, as might be supposed, in
seeing that the city buildings are kept clean within, but in see
ing that no accumulation of rubbish or filth is allowed to dis
figure the city streets, alleys and vacant lots. Ihis duty lor
merly devolved upon the police, but the city fathers decided
that "the touch of a woman's hand" would help matters.
Whatever may be said concerning the home as .woman's
fcphere, there can be little argument over the statement that
most women are by birth and training better housekeepers
than most men, and the application of their talent to civic
tidiness is practised too little. Cities, like houses, will not stay
clean. They must be kept so, and this is a matter of daily
atttention. With a trained feminine eye and hand at the head
of this work, a year-round "spotless town" should be the result.

but without success; she continued !
her raids, particularly upon schooners. ;
At this t.me the British navy was '
having some success with U-boats, or j
mystery ships, innocent-looking ves-
sels which were uuii-kly turned into '
armed fighting craft when attacked
by the U-boats. American naval of- j
ficers desired to outfit some of these
mystery ships, but it Is understo'.d
that Woodrow Wilson Intervened,
holding that Riich vessels were a vio
lation of International law. This was
the first bitter disappointment to
those charged with making a defense
against the submarines.
The U-117 was continually report
ed to the navy department as still act

schooners and sowing mines. The
navy was nonplussed.
