Senator Kirby of Arkansas, made senator by (ho political domination of n few members of a stale central com nilttee. an extreme junior in Hip ranks of hip men, opposes Ihe policies of President W'ils n. the cabinet and the senate and conflres His answer to pr tests from the pen pie of Arkansas, particularly in ref eronce to tbe conscription bill, is that the bill is “i'nfair, unjust, indetno oratle, un-American and unnecessary " Tbe answer does not answer i.et us see Kirby says it is unfair The volun leer system is unfair by compare on. Instead of c‘ ascription since the pa triolic mail is eri to tbe full burden President Wilson wants eonserptlon (l Hull the farmer boy. or the yonne man already helpful to bis country In other lines, may lie leli at home, and the indolent non-producer of the city may be made to serve, it is n t unfair. Kirby says it is unjust. That which protects the citizen of patriotic m pulses from carrying the rail burden or the slacker and the unworthy ci zen. is justice within itself to a citizen most entitled to such pr tertlon. Kirby says it is undemocratic. Ii is democratic because it makes th< distinction as to who shall go a loin; different lines. The id e rich will be c nscrlpted along with tho idle pour II banishes autocracy because it has the authority at hand to do so. And ties ides, Kirby, whose democratic nomination was handed him on a silver platter without the democrats of he state having been given the privilege lo choose their own standard bearer, should be the last to emphasize deni' cracy and .its purposes. Kirby says it is un-American. Presi dent Wilson is American The people at the helm of national affairs are American. And * nly have we heard un-American expressions applied to our public men when the names of "(Inm Shoe” Hil| Stone, Vardanian and Kirby have been discussed Kirby says it is unnecessary Kirby can not know the necessity <* the situation, because lie can not enj< y the confidences of the men at the helm The president would not lay his full inf rotation before such a man fta Kirby, who differing from him. might in his pig-heudedness use that information publicly and ignorantly and , inexcusably, injure a situate u that is being handled along tiler lines. Kirby can not he taken as the au thority on necessity, at least until lie has been in Washington long entfwth to know that his judgment is not unove that of all ethers and Kirtiy vnhl m l stay long ti Wn-him ton. ROOT AND RUSSIA Win'll we observe that l*re«iiIonl Wilson is sending Kliliu Hoot to Russia with a message, we Know how big Hiis man Wils n really is. There is no other living man so qualified 10 go to Russia at this critical period as is Wool. Mr Root is a repuhliean. dyed in the wool. He is n partisian of the strii-test type. Rut he is an American first, a big American, and where he is needed he will go. President Wi • son. when a messenger was to be •sent to Russia, east about for the best •lualif.cd man. and he f uud him in Elihu Root, and he sent Root. All of •which proves that Wilson and Root and Taft and Roosevelt and such men are genuinely big men. WHAT THE NAVY OFFERS? Vow that we are getting down to the practical business of prepared ness, It is well that the young men Inform themselves of whai course they prefer to take, being offered the preference w hen they essay to be help rul to the government.

The navy offers a great field of education to lhi* hoy who has not had that <pportunlly It offer mental and physical training, and a period ill the navy yvil help every hoy wlv takes it. Cermnn eIT its to corrupt Russia show the extreme cleverness of tho enemy, but do not increase hs moral prestige so that you could notice it This country is "stupefied with overconfidence," says Senat< r hewis, and he is right A little reading of the history i the war of 1S12 would help America may now enjoy the thrill of knowing that its navy is already in war service and that in a few weeks an Ante-ban army is likely to he '‘somew here in France " Singularly enough, most of those supposedly high-minded critics who i tilt see tv thing hut evil In America';', pnrticlph'lon In the war have a habit of writing anonymous otters. Armies move u their stomachs, as I old, but they must also have shoes that fit their feet, being in this re ;poet unlike civilians, the majority of whom require their feet to fit their shoes. While- a Justified prejudice attaches lo the boast that “now we arty rich and increased in p ods,’’ we may without win plan the best ways of us ing our national wealth for helping the cause of humanity, freedom and progress. MANY COS'TINt Kl> Fit DM PAOTO ONE. MONTHS OF FIGHTING! prjviston they meet make for main taining the fighting strength of an army at the front. The terrible toll in dead, untainted trad prisoners com puted on figures, including Russia's enormous los es in captured, amounts to 10 per cent a month of troops at the trim . Half o' these are perriM nerily out of action, and were it nA for the constant stream of recruits go ing to. ward every day an army of a million men »< on would fade away.

KAHIUAilSIIICK IS NOW WIIKN TO PIECES Even Peace Within a Short Time Would Not Alter the Need for These Things, as the People Have Been so Long Away From Production the Scarcity Is Felt Everywhere. Washington, April 27 - The French "nr commission has informed the American government things France needs most from the I'nited States are money, f d, ferti izers, coal, steel, ' il and transportation equipment, espec ally ships lo carry goods lo l he old world. One I the loremo-l purposes of the French mission revealed late today aiithoriatively for the first time is to impress upon the American govern ment and people the serious food sit uation in Europe. Members of the economic section of ihe mission be lieve there is serf us danger of a world famine. wmr.- jeaiures ci me war will DC carefu ly canvassed, however, during the slay of the mission in "Washing ton. One of the members said today that, since their arrival the visitors had broadened greatly the outlined scope of their discussions. At first, he said, they expected to devote them selves principally to a visit of cour tesy, but n w they were prepared to go into the practical problems of the war very fully and work out delayed plans of eo-eperation. The economic section of the mis sion is prepared to submit evidence that all the world is seriously threat ened with famine because of the with drawal of men front agriculture, the lack of fertilizers and the derange ment of transportation facilities. Roll ng stock of railroads in Europe rapidly is being worn out through the lack of lubricants, it is declared, and more railway supplies are urgently needed. The growing scarcity < f transportation facilities on the seas make it imperative, the Erenchmen believe, that the United States carry cut quickly its pan for a large fleet of wooden ships to assist in the striw gle against Germany. The mission believes it a fallacy to assume that even peace would greatly alter food conditions, for those now on the. verge of starvation will need great quantities of fo< d before they can produce it themselves. It is felt that the seriousness of the situaU n is increased by the almost universal crop failure. It is said that the Germans recently have made extraordinary efforts to send to the bottom vessels carrying grain to the a lies. Second choice for sinking is said to be b ats carrying steel, and alter them the Germans have tried to sink coal-laden ships. SUCCESS OF SUBMARINES CONTINTRI) FltOM I'AOE ONE. to transfer to foreign trade as many as practicable of the coastwise and Croat Lakes steamers, and more energetic steps than ever in that d rection are looked for. Rarfy action on food c nirol egislntion is f. recast, and there probably will be more urgent appeals for the farmers to develop agricultural resources to their tit most. What the navy will do directly to combat the submarine menace lias not been fully developed, but it is ktv wn that Secretary Daniels is planning further conferences with shipbuilders to speed up the e nstruction of de stroyers, the type of naval vessels generally regarded as most effective against undersea craft. -—o For KODAKS and KODAK FINISH INC go to Sorrells Drug Co. tf Ixtgan Berry Ice Cream.
