Americans V 1 : 1 1 1 ill) Well to take u
war inventory of liolll Hides, a ci-n-fUs
of the war elements, iui-oiiii-1
and material, methods and results,
uii -to-date.
Only liy looking facts in tin- fare
can we make effertive use of the lull
resources of the I'nited Hiate in the
fourth year of the war just beni.
The Enemy Powers.
The enemy powers, not. eoiinfiriL"
subject peoples, comprise over one
hundred and titty millions enntinvu
Oilrt population, stretching like an
iron band without break across the
heart of Kutope and well on toward
the heart of Asia. This vast popula
tion occupies an interior position that
cleaves the allied populations in
wain and enjoys railroads (carefully
(instructed in advance) for conceit-'
'alius their forces on one front or
' e other and for ipiickly transferrin!;
em. The facility with which these
; ansfers have heen made constitute
:ie of the marvels of military his-'
try. i
The allied powers whose popula
ions have appeared on the front, not
ncltidintc Asiatic Russia, or subject
leoples, count in population in the
ratio of citht. io live. The physical
harriers make it practically impossible
to transfer allied troops from one
front, to the other. The enemy pop
illations have maintained a united
front from the start.
Germany's Man Power.
The birth rate in Ihe enemy Towers
is very la rue. An examination orj
casually lists shows that the enemy J
has carefully husbanded his man-!
iiowcr. The young men reac'iing mil
t;ir y ase since Die war bean almost
if not completely, make up for ihei
soldiers killed in battle. 1
From the standpoint of personnel
in numbers anil morale tlu enemy
armies have not yet readied their
maximum of Hlrcngth.
In the matter of material tin1 situ
ation is similar, The enemy lands
comprise law bodies of the richest
and best cultivated agricultural lands
in the world. Since the war the ene
my has taken over cast wheat fields
in Uoumania ami western Russia, ric'i
fanning land in Itelgiimi and France.
Thruout' the enemy litis assembled
and husbanded his supplies with a
thoroughness that, compels the admir
ation of the world.
The enemys territory embraces
,)mo of the greatest coal fields and
Iron deposits in all Europe. Since
the war the enemy has taken over the
mines and industries of lielglum,
about the mines and Industries of
France, a goodly part of the mines
and industries of Russia, the oil fields
f Itoiiinani.i and copper mines scat
tered in the flallians. The rigid block
aye of the allies has imposed diilicui
cities upon the enemy industries, hut
the success of enemy science In de
vising substitutions is almost incred
ible. We must admit that the enemy
powers have successfully me! the
war problems of maintaining for pop
ulation at home ami soldiers' at ilie
front lood supplies, equipment, ma
chines, motive power, artillery, arms
and munitions. ,
Glorious France.
For siisi ained lihiinu
France in Ibis way has set
water mark for all nation.-
the hinh
for all
lime. The liatilc of the Maine, where
(lie French forces compared to the
Hermans about as tic to eight, will
stand out in history not only as the
most momentous of all worlds hadles
but as the most brilliant victory ever
won by an inferior force over tt su
perior force. The one blot upon that
faterul battle was the failure of the
liritish coal indent, composed of the
bravest, soldiers badly diteiied, to do
its alloleed part ami e'nwu'e Von
K Inks forces as they advanced south
of the Marne.
America's Duty.
The clement.! of our true war pol
icy arc plain. The armies in reserve
in F.njdand, Italy iind .Japan should
take the responsibility for the west
crn front, while America takes the re
F.poiisibility of the eastern front.
We should lake over the task hy
ltibiiiarine offensives blocking the
F-bouts )if their buses; wo should
proceed to naln supremacy in the air;
we should proieed to build merchant
vessels unil war ships for :narilinie
supremacy; iih our armies ate formed
and prepared, we should send them
to Russia; we should send a conimis-
Hion and a host of Instructors lo help I
organize and drill the armies of China,
bearing the expense of instructors our
selves; wo should organize and assem
ble Chinese, Russian and American
armies and fleets to cut Russia's way
.to the Mcditerunean, so Ihn three
. great democracies can join hands
: around the world. America should
. brliiK together In solid compact ihe
great, sober democracies of the world,
whose peoples only usk for safety and
pence, for liberty and Justice, for op
eration of the whole brotherhood of
man under the common fatherhood

Los Angeles, Cal. Accompanied by
an armed escort, the priceless concave
mirror for the hundred inch retleetor
telescope was successfully transported
from Pasadena to the Mount Wilson
observatory. The mirror, which weluhs
live tons, was taken up the tortuous
mountain read on a specially construct
ed cradle on a truck geared to run two
miles an hour.
Ihi uu.se of a report that an effort
would lie made to wreck the mirror on
the steep mountain road special pre
ea ut ions were taken to guard it. I'cp
uty SIcriiT P. II. Haydeu ami lieputy
Constable 10. I.. l!oil.;ers, the one riding
ahead and the other behind the truck
and e.'u li of them armed, composed the
guard. The convoy Included about 15ii;
persons in thirty motorcars.
The truck with the mirror left the ob
servatory shops in Pasadena at 7 a. m.
and arrived ut Ihe top of the mountain
at 1 p. in. The arrival of the mirror
and those who actvmpanlcd It was cel
ebrated by a llag ceremony at the ob
servatory. An immense I'lilted States
tla'-T was draped over the door of the
dome which Is to be the home of the
mirror. When the trticli passed nisi,!-,
the buildlm.' the llag was unfurled
across the doorway ami the crowd of
'Jim pi'rsous applauded.
The glass disk, which is the object o'
inteiHe Interest In the sdenl ille world,
is lui inches lii diameter and thirteen
Inches thick ami weighs lo.omi poinuR
It was cast In Franco ami brought to
Pasadena eight years ago, since which
time it has been subjected to a slow
and careful grinding ami polishing
process. This was under the supervi
sion of Professor !. W. Uit' hey.
The framework of the telescope has
been boil! and Is ready for the Installa
tion of the large mirror and the sm iller
mirrors which will be used with it.
The great apparatus will be. ready for
use in about three mouths. It will be
Ihe largest telescope lu the world, and
astronomers declare it will be lmpo-.se
hie to make a larger one successfully
since the drawbacks increase rapidly
as tho size and light gathering capacity
of the mirrors increase.
The telescope is of the reflecting type,
with no light passing through the gliis,
as In the case of the old style refract
lug telescopes. The Immense concaved
mirror, silvered on the lower side, Will
repose at the bottom of a tube, where
It Will reflect the image of the heavens
to suialler mirrors set diagonally at the
upper end of (hp tube. The observer
will get the image from the small mir
rors and not the large one. P.ecuuse of
the size and lower of the glass It is be
lieved It will open up vast undiscov
ered areas In the heavens. The enter
prise of building the new telescope was
Itiiiugiiratril by Mr. Ccorgo K. Hale, di
rector of the observatory.
