Efery Friday by
The failure of a Pittsburgh. Pa., bank with deposits aggregating more
ti an $11,000,000. is evidence that conditions in the United States are not
v. hat they should be. According to official financial reports, business is more
stagnant in the Ka.-t than it is in the Middle West and the West.
Business conditions are most cramped in those districts which for the past
.-ixfcen months have been manufacturing munitions of war. Banks in this
section of the country have more cash on hand than they have had for many
y rs. This condition prevails from the Mississippi to the western coast.
The shortage of money in the United States today is limited to the New
Fng!and state.-, where great industries are working night and day to produce
war material. Ordinarily, it would be as profitable to manufacture shells as it
would be clothing, but when the output of big factories is shipped to foreign
lands and sold on credit, it usually produces a strained financial condition.
The money shortage in the cast today is due to the fact that the money
is going out, but none coming in. England, who buys ninety per cent of all
Ike munitions of war the plants in the United States have to sell, is bank
t.ipt. She i.- out of cash and s getting war material over here in exchange
for I. 0. U's.
While the war lasts. Great Britain's financial condition will not improve,
.- rid consequently, her credit over here will increase with every order that the
American plants fill. Someone must carry this load for England, and upon
whom does the burden rest?
The big banks of the Ka.-t are lending money to the munition plants to
;.ay salaries and the bills for material. But how long can they continue to
',:y these bills.' Ci rtainly not forever. And when they become unable to
any the burden any longer, the banks collapse and who loses? The de
positors, and in the collapse of the Pittsburgh bank, 41,000 school children lost
what they had on deposit.
An embargo on arms would les.ven the danger of future financial dis
; -teis. and it would end the turmoil among the people who make up the teem
ing millions in this country. Legally, it was right to sell arms to the belli
g rents, because in times of peace all of the warring nations approved this
t'-aiT:e. But our shipmt nt of instruments of slaughter have not brought the
i':tiict to a c'o.-o. and .n the other hand, it may be only prolonging it.
Whi n the revolution broke out in Mi xico, the United States permitted
i he skipiivnt of war material to the various factions, believing that am
it unition would end the chaos. When it did not, the United States placed an
air tight embargo on the shipment of every instrument of slaughter, in the
interest of humanity.
The Unitid States government has. since the beginning of hostilities in
Europe, placed the interest of humanity above everything else. Humanity
i: being outraged every hour in Europe. The victorious nations will be
1 esivy losers if the war should end today-, but the sooner it ends, the sooner
wilt come a blessing to all mankind.
By supplying ammunition to one faction, the United States has not
.d-Miieed the interests of humanity, and it has not brought peace within the
; rasp of Europe. If the ruling heads of this government are anxious to
assist humanity, why not place an embargo on arms, even if only temporaril
iy? An! if cash is plated above humanity, England's I. O. U.'s. ought to
g-.i to protest.

The best part of Christmas is Santa Claus. To the child. Kris Krinkle
c.'.iks above kings, emperors or presidents, and girl or boy who has faith in
obi man with the reindeers, never quite outgrows it. Take Santa from
hristmas and its most attractive feature is gone, and childhood is robbed of
.- character which is as essential to youth as short dresses and knee pants.
No one gets too old to think .sentimentally of the days when he or she
1. me; a stocking by the old tin- place to be filled by the mysterious stranger,
who entered through the flue and vanished with the winds.
Was there ever a wider or more loving conspiracy than that which keeps
t'ie venerable figure of Santa Claus from slipping away, with all the other old
ti-ise myths, into the forsaken wonderland of the past? Of all the person
;.; s whose marvelous doings once tilled the minds of men he alone survives.
He ha.- outlived all the great gods, and all the impressive and poetic con-.-ption.-;
which once flitted between heaven and earth these have gone but
.Santa Claus remains by virtue of a common understanding that childhood
i hall not be despoiled of oiv f its most cherished beliefs, either by the my- j
t o!o;rist, with his sun myth theory, or the scientist, with his heartless diatribe
: gidnst superstition.
There is a good deal more to be said on this subject if this were the place
say it. Kven siqiorstition has its uses and sometimes its sound heart of
t "ut.ii. He who does not see in the legend of Santa Claus a beautiful faith on
::'e side and the na ve embodiment of a divine fact on the other is not fit to
1- ive a place at the Christmas board.
For him there should lo neither care! nor holly nor mistletoe. They
only shall keep the feast to whom all these things are but the outward and
visible signs of an inward and spiritual grace.
Like the sun and moon, Santa Claus looks th ,-anie wherever he is seen.
If5 smiles as sweetly in Cape Girardeau as he does in Hong Kong, and if the
li'tle boys ami girls in every land had their way. Santa Claus would be king
of the world.
