THE CREENEVILLE DAILY SUN, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 18, 1919.
The Greeneville Daily Sun PUBLISHED DAILY EXCEPT SUNDAY. W. R. LYON, Editor and Proprietor. .Subecrfotion Rata I Daily Subscription By carrier, 15c a week, 60c a month. By mail outside of Greeneville, 40c a month; 76c for S months; $1.60 for 6 months; $8.00 for the year. Kntered at the postoffice at Greeneville, Tenn., as second class matter. Fancho Villa didn't stay long in Juarez; but he'll be back. Few habits are harder to break than the necktie buying habit. The liveliest boy scout we know anything about Tiger Clemenceau. As for aviation, it involves no ceaseless exhortation about "good roads." It's too bad some of these flights couldn't have been made over Berlin last fall. At this rate, airmen will soon be flying around the world in twelve hops. Kiling time is one of the great businesses; a lot of work is nothing more. Very often the men who do not get up until 9 a. m. get the $25,000 salaries. In arid countries where they boast of "eternal sun shine" the dust is a foot deep. There is lttle evdenice that anybody in Germany thinks the same as Max Harden does. Stowed away in innumerable secret places, many peo pie have the "non-refillable" bottle. If all people had to do their own cooking, a "layer cake" wouldn't be baked once in six months. Newfoundland for luncheon, Ireland for breakfast; change planes for Constantinople for dinner! When Mexico's hopes hang upon Pancho Villa, you can see how rotten the Carranza regime must be. In the distance, why does a toadstool always look like a lost golf ball? And such an all-fired distance, too! It may be a discouraging fact that the payment of the wages of sin may be postponed for years and years. Statesmen as wel as proofreaders have to read 80,000 word peace treaties. Miscellaneous arguers, go it blind. It isn't any oftener that the man grown prosperous snubs his former poor friend than that the poor friend snubs him for fear he'l be "patronized." They say France is the chief stumbling-block against granting concessions to the Huns. This is not the first time the French have blocked the Huns. The inventor of perpetual motion toils on and the man who lives in hope that a good paragraph can be made out of statistics reamins undiscouraged. Wilhelm may pay his board at Amerongen, but Count Bentinck can realibe a far greater recompense than that by three volumes, more or less, of "memoirs." New restaurants are to take the place of a good many bars afer "bonedry." Will the people eat more more than they ought to? That won't be good for 'em, either. What Is Felipe Angeles thinking of when he tries to tear down the constitution conferred upon Mexico by Link Steffens? This is worse than revolution; it is a re lapse into common sense! Notwithstanding that cream is an inch thick in the country and the strawberies are as large as walnuts and are not picked until they're ripe, the rush to the cities continues. Vers libre from the Little Rock Gazette: The other night Ye pastor started To read a "vital" novel Having to do With the Great West. It was written By some Boston young lady. Ye pastor read about The "automatic revolvers" The hero toted And the "steins" of whiskey He consumed. But when he started To play a "rubber" of poker Ye pastor quit reading. If anybody else Wants to read the book They can find it About 75 yards due south Of ye pastor's residence Unless it bounced further After hitting the ground. THE PRACTICAL WAY TO HELP. Financial and material help, rather than political ex periemntal advice, is what the nations of Europe need. The last thing they need is the interference of the United States in their affairs. They are able to govern them selves according to their own ideas, whether their pref erences are monarchial, federal or democratic. They do not need a league of nations to teach them the lesson of peace to ward off an attack by Germany, for they know Ry experience the horrors of war, and Germany is bound hand and foot. There is no danger of the collapse of nations through outside aggression, but there is great danger of collapse because of exhaustion and demorali zation. What Europe needs is not advice, interference or poli tical nostrums, but food, clothing, work animals, seed, machinery, building material, railroad materials and credit. The greatest of these is credit, for it includes everything else. The Americans of largest heart and bain are not both ering about political inventions as a means of saving civ ilization. They are concerned with the practical task of extricating imperiled nations which, if they fall, will drag the world down to deep depression and poverty, if not to the permanent fate of barbarism. The nations are linked together by fate and fact; the chain is no stronger than its weak links; and the strong unhurt peoples must lift up the others. There are practical methods whereby the United States can give its strength to Europe without endangering this country or antagonizing European peoples. The league of nations is not the right method, because it takes from America the exclusive control of America, and thus en feebles this nation in its judgment, where it should be strongest if it is to rescue the world. Americans, not foreigners, must plan and execute the tremendous effort which America must now put forth in behalf of Europe. No trafficking and intriguing council of foreigners at Geneva can properly direct the policy of the United States. America must energize European peoples and establish a nequilibrum of credit which will put the true value be hind the pound sterling, the franc, the lira and the ruble. From the beaten assassin of nations, still loaded with spoils, must come the security which will underlie thj financial operations necessary to animate the victims now suffering from syncope. These victims are perfectly healthy, and well able to earn their own living and main tain their own freedom. The German empire is about to be placed under the cor trol of a reparation commission not a tangled-up "league of nations," but a commission acting under or iers of the nations that whipped Germany. This com mission will have extraordinary powers, including the power of regulating taxation. It will have power to de termine how much indemnity Germany shal pay, and un ler what terms. No doubt this commission will require Germany to hand over a long-term bond issue of several billions, secured bv the German empire, which in turn is under bond to the commission. With this German bond issue safely deposited in the coffers of the allied govern ments, there will be ample basis for issuing allied bonds or money to persons and communities damaged by Ger many. Thus the primary credits will be restored, at least in part. America must be ready to supply the remainder of the credit required, and to supply any material needs of Europe. This can be done without drawing from any American pocket a single dollar in charity. From this time forth it would be unwise, in fact, to hand over Amer ican food or any other thing to Europeans without re quiring payment, for there are already too many Euro jeans demoralized and pauperized by charity. In Bel rium, especially, the population is debilitated by free "ood, so that it is well-night impossible to get an honest lay's work from any workman. Of course, it is a crime o require American workmen to sweat for the sake of sending the bread of idleness to Europe. American finance, properly organized, backed by the rood will and good business sense of American citizens, an easily lift Europe out of the hole. A great factoi af strength is the millions of hands in Europe eager to eturn to work and production. The workers outnumbei "he drones. Iindividually, and through corporate effort millions of tiny threads can be woven and floated across he Atlantic, which will combine and form ultimately a riant indestructible cable, sapable of bearing up the weight of the world and civilization. It is this work, this individual and collective practical help, that appeals to Americans as the true solution of Europe's problems. No political scheme is necessary oi advisable, and no entanglement of America in European politics should be tolerated. Let the hard-headed but warm-hearted Americans get busy on the job of resusci tating the European peoples, in a practical manner, and :he efforts of the war will be wiped out soon. As a fun lamental condition of American assistance, let Americans insist that there shall be no interference by the United States government in the vitally necessary task of bind ing Germany and the German people to the wheel of debt until they have ground out the blood money they owe to their victims. The nations nearly killed by Germany are now able to force her to pay her debt Let no American high or low, interfere with the working of the divine and human law which makes punishment follow crime. With out the restorative proces there can be no equilibrum. With Germany permitted to retain the spoils, Europe will perish, even though America should pour out all her wealth to fill the crater. Washington Post. Little Benny's Note Book By LEE PAPE Puds Simkins had his ixpress wag gin out yestidday, and me and him started to go up alleys with it look ing for old newspapers to sell to the junk man and we came to a little pile of grass outside of a fents proving sumbody had bin cutting their grass, and I sed, I tell you lets wat, lets put the grass in the Ixpress waggin and pertend we're hucksters. Wich we started to do, putting the grass in the bottom of the ixpress waggin and pulling it up the alley, me yelling, Ternips, spinitch, red ripe tomatoes, sparrowgrass. Cabbidges, peez, roobarb, red ripe cellery, yelled Artie. : And we kepp on going, yelling dif frent things to eat, and pritty soon 2 ladies came out of 2 back gates at the same time, one saying, Heer you are, huckster,, well, for goodniss sakes, its jest these 2 kids, and heer I came all the way f rum the 3rd floor all out of breth thinking it was a huckster. ... Being a short lady with long feet, and the other one sed, I think its a outrage, thats wat. I think it is, I was all the way up stairs dusting the 2nd story back and I herd sumboddy call ing Roobarb, and I hurried rite down and wat do I find? Nuthing but these two silly boys, I think its a out rage. Being a fat lady with a thin wrap per, and us 2 hucksters stood there looking at them and wondering wea ther to run or wat, and the long one aying, I think childern like that awt to be locked up, and me way up on the 3rd floor and haff to go back agen if my brother was a pleeceman like vours Id soon have them locked up too. Thats a good ideer, thats a good ideer, sed the fat one. Wich jest then Pud Simkins wispered, 111 beet vou to the corner. . And I wispered. 1, 2, 3, go. And we both ran like everything with the ixpress waggin bumping in back of us like enything, ind wen we got erround the corner Puds sed, Do you think her brother reely is a pleeceman? It wouldent make eny diffrents to me if he was, I sed. Me neither, sed Puds. And we undumped the grass out of the ixpress waggin and stuffed it in our blouses to make bleeve we was fatter than we reely was. I Rippling Rhymes By WALT MASON Life's road is long and dreary, howe'er we try to grin; and man grows faint and weary, before he sees the inn; the inn where ends his questing, and where his endless rest and dreamless sleep begin. All cheerily he gambols through youth's bright golden day; but soon he finds the brambles beset the stony way; and though he sings and whistles his feet are full of thistles, and they are there to stay. It seems to me a won der that mortals are so brave; while they are beaten under they sing a gladsome stave; through troubles they go prancing, on sorrow's lid they're dancing, they fox-trot to the grave. Alone, man may be gloomy, and full of fantods dire, when in his rocker roomy, before the evening fire; but when he meets his fellow he shakes the blues and yellows, and pays a gladsome lyre. The road is long and hilly, beset with gin and snare; and often life seems silly, but still we pilgrims fare with jest and laugh and sally to that inn in the val ley, and our long slumbers there. Though tired of all endeavor, we won't admit we're sore; we'd whis tle on forever, and then forever more; our own distress we're mock ing when we are roundly knocking upon the tavern door. TO-MORROW By Edgar A. Guest. Tomorrow's the day when the loafer will work, Tomorrow's the day when nobody will shirk; ' Tomorrow's the day that we'll sit down and write Those letters of friendship we think of tonight, The day we'll be kind and the day we'll be good, Tomorrow's the day when we'll live as we should. Tomorrow is the day when our debts will be paid, When by none upon earth shall an error be made, . Tomorrow's the day when the bad will repent And the merciless tyrant in pity re lent, Tomorrow's the miracle day of the year When o one will hunger for comfort or cheer. Tomorrow's the day when the miser will lend And the self-centered man becomes somebady's friend; The day when the busy man now will have time To help up another who's struggling to climb, Tomorrow's the day when the thoughtless will think, And the drunkard wil lgive up his craving for drink. ( Tomorrow's the day when the fool will be wise, When early the indolent laggard will rise, When the brute will, turn gentle, the sinner turn saint And the grumbler find never a cause for complaint, Oh the world will be gloriously happy and gay If ever tomorrow turns into today.
