’Twas a foolish man who tried to
“get” the Tiger of France. A sneak
ing assassin could never do what
brave men have essayed and failed,
o o o
President Wilson perhaps knew
better than anyone lese that his re
quest that no public discussion of the
League of Nations plan be held in the
senate until his arrival and explana
tion of the plan would be in vain. A
senator can no more keep from talk- ^
ing than a razorback can be kept out
of a cornfield by a rail fence. The
more momentous the subject and the
more delicate the situation, the surer
it is that it will be flaunted to the
four winds with all the loose and vi- j
cious statements of a backfence gos
siping tournament. Somebody ought
t' induce Mr. Maxim to constiuct one
of his famous silencers for the hu
man mug, and then make it one of the
well-known “perquisite* of |
of the United State*.”
