A reflective British observer is led by the reports from the Near East to observe: "The great war established not only poison gas, but also defama tion, especially in the form of the pro pagandist imputation of fantastic atro cities, as a regular, recognized instru ment of scientific warfare." This is a depressing conclusion, but there is only too much reason to fear that it is correct. The question has nejcr even been raised, so far as we know, in thj league of nations, yet it" is of vital im portance to that body as an agency for peace. If small wars cannot always be pre vented, then the next beat thing is to keep them from spreading tilt they heconi? great wars. But, among the for ces that fan end spread the flames of war, one of the most dangerous , is prcciiwly such a systematic propagan defamation as is described.

They may not die vio lent deaths, as the New Jersey pair died, and they may even live on for years and years, with the public not knowing of their sin, but their char ACter and spirituality arc being under mined and the way is being paved for a fall.

A BAD RECORD Iri conversation with a Statesville newspaper man, the Record was told that Catawba stands next to Alexan der in the number of liquor cases in federal , court there this week, a dis tlnction .that is not enviable. But so long as apparently good citizens buy the stuff and others show little inter est in law enforcement, mean liquor ynll be made. If public opinion in Catawba county stood for murder and other crimes, these would soon show an increasel The question, after all, is whether the good people of Catawba county are willing to submit to the moonshiner. . Th.wrjter of. this paragraph, who will he in Raleigh for the game, makes the prediction that Carolina will win from State College by two touchdowns, or ten points.

Wo are told that chemists have pro duced gases incomparably deadlier than any used in the 'great war, and presumably this progress will go on. Hut if it is .true that lies are hence forth to be a "regular, recognized in strument of scientific warfare," must we not reckon on tho probability that they like gas will be developed to a far greater efficiency? In. the great war ail. records for falsehood vero beaten by what came to be humorous ly called the "lie factories," but the art had for the most part to be learn ed. Next time it will be different. Whether or not the league of nations can do anything to restrain the use ox poison gas in war, it is freely admitted that efforts to curb this menace to civilization are within the scope of the league's' program. Why should it not, hen,,Jie within,; that program ,tov: do all that can be done"; to' prevent "in flammatory calumny from becoming established as a "regular, recognized Instrument of scientific warfare?" i"What nation would oppose such an effort? What nation cares to go on record as declaring that it holds itself ""I free to use falsehood as a weapon? If the issue were sturdily raised, either it would have to bc.pigeon-holed amid embarrassing silence, or every nation would have to profess, if only for the saving of face, that it loved truth above all things. But could the league do anything to hold signatory nations to their pledge? Why not? One of the most hopeful features of , the league's work for peace is the plan for delaying war until there ha3 been time for discus sion and investigation. Such an inves tigation should certainly include the probing of all the allegations on which a war is based. When a new war is being prepared, propaganda of defam ation does not wait until the ultimatum is sent. Both to make war certain and to insure . proper support for it, the prospective enemy is pictured as wick ed and malignant. " " ; At this point the. league might in tervene with good effect by using the months of grace stipulated for prob ing all these charges and publishing its findings. Perhaps some of the mu tual recriminations would be found to be well based, but even so they might to a great extent cancel out, leaving neither party in a position to hold up hands of horror at the iniquity of the other. And of the falsehood and mis understanding that surround the open? ing, of a war a great' part might be disposed of by a dispassionate inqui sition by neutrals. But even if war should, despite all break out, the league might still be able, so long as neutrals had an im portant part in it, to check its spread by meeting propoganda of the kind described by an impressive show of truth. When fighting begins men eas ily see red, and a well-timed lie may be as effective as the truth in startinc a hot clamor for war. Unorganized,' neucrais cannot protect themselves from propaganda of this, kind; in the league ot nations, when that ls.fairlv established, they would have a' power ful instrument . for the restraint of unscrupulous falsehoods by which one or another belligerent might seek to enlarge the area of the war. At best was is an atrocious thinor- but it would bo made even worse. if falsehoods in tended to inflame men's minds tn the highest pitch of hatred and loathing should bo developed to 100 ner cent, pf. ficiertcy as a ."regular, recognized in strument of scientific warfare."
