Welcome to America, Mr. Wilson I 1 Somebody had the wrong dope on hog prices? Nothing to worry about now until the leg islature meets. Pershing has an "international" salute, but he maintains an American mind. It took a nervy thief to rob the navy recruit ing station, but Omaha furnished him. Sunday was a beautiful day in and around Omaha. For proof of this see the list of auto mobile accidents reported. "Only my dead body," says Freddie Willie Hohenzollern, who will be a lot tamer after the court gets through with him. 1 The president may note man changes around the old place, but he will find the postmaster general just where he left him. The Julia Silver has been sold "down the river," ayid the port of Omaha is again deserted. Where is our navigation commission? The R-34 landed under its own power, which entitles it to the full credit of the trip. May better luck attend its homeward voyage! Officers and crew of the R-34 were soothed and sustained by "jazz" played on a graphophone. Showing how desperate was their situation. A poor little rich girl has been condemned by a New York judge to live on $1,500 per month. Life surely is tough for some folks. , "P4" Rourke's boys will be at home tomor--'row; and will get a royal welcome from the fans, jf'erhaps' the, hill top will revive their drooping average. Eighteen thousand Omahans watched an amateur game of base ball on Sunday, indicating how the interest turns in this community. And it was worth watching, too. That cross-country run by army auto trucks will be an impressive spectacle, but the bull whacker and the mule-skinner marked the trans-t continental trail many years ago. L General Denekine is now using tanks in his campaign against the Russian "reds." He might find a supply in America, they having gone out of fashion since July 1. , Serbian peasants find tilling the soil accom panied by the uncertain joy of getting blown up by abandoned Austrian ammunition. Farming is almost as dangerous as fighting over there. Mr. Wilson is reported to have conferred with members , of his party on shipboard as to the contents of the message he is preparing for congress. Does this mean he has lost confidence in himself? , A few dozen burglars may have plied their trade and "gotten away with the loot, but three . pints of whisk were captured after a father, mother and three children had been beaten by the "morals" squad. Farming With a Difference Soldiers who are restless indoors after the life in the open will give heed to a booklet sent out by the War department from the office of Col. Arthur Woods, assistant to the secretary. - Many a man has not loved his little old job so much since he renewed his acquaintance with it. He finds it cramped and confining. Life was no picnic in France. But for all the " devilishness, he finds his thoughts straying from -the streets to the trenches, from the desk to . the dugout,- from the office to the shell-plowed - fields where the wind breathes through the grasses in benediction over the fallen. ; j Urban sophistication in the cities poked fun, before the war, at the farmer. He was sup posed to be uncouth and gullible a child of nature. He chewed a straw and pulled his beard and greased his boots and rose by lamp light, and was a man with a hoe among the herds and orchards, a man to 'Whom the great "round world was a . blank page or , a distant ..myth. ? Now that is changed. The farmer is an ap ' plied scientist, whose opinion is sought and re spected, with whose vote lies the balance of power, in whose hand, as it is busy or idle, is ; the feeding or starving of the nations. , For '. milliont during the war life has been a grim, '.unmitigated quest of food. The farm has had to yield by intensive cultivation many times-its former oroduce. and marketing in haphazard ways has had to yield to methodic and speedy transportation. Farm work andjarm life today utilize every last development of engineering. The machinery has revolutionized farm labor, and electricity and gasoline are the greatest of ..all hired hands. The motorcar, the tractor, the dairy, machinery, the telephone are common . places where once they were unknown. The demobilized fighter no longer regards , indifferently or scornfully the chance the farm '. holds out to him. If he is not aware, he can I learn from such a booklet as this before us what . prospect of healthful work at a fair wage is open to him; . The fields are clamoring for him field where the battle is for life and ot for destruction. Philadelohi Lad or.. LAW-BREAKING ANff LAWLESS POLICE Is it necessary for enforcing the liquor lawa to set at naught all other laws? Does punishment of law-breaking call for midnight invasion of people's homes, beating up the inmates and general rough-housing of common decency? Are our "booze hounds" a law unto themselves and above all other law? The high-handed methods of our Omaha moral squad as illustrated by their recent per formances seem to us wholly indefensible, just what the public has always protested against arbitrary and brutal abuse of police power. It is not a question whether. the victims are other wise reputable folks or poor devils without friends, whether they are guilty or innocent They ough to have some rights entitled to be respected even by the police. We submit that there is no good reason for dragging men and women to jail in the wee hours of the morning when they can be ar rested any time they are wanted and no danger of trying to run away. The same applies to the execution of search warrants at unreasonable hours in homes whose occupants have already gone to bed, when the search can be made just as well and just as effectively in proper time of the day and the liquor, if any is held in illegal possession, seized in the day time with no im pairment of the consequences. Why can't we have a little less lawlessness and a little more common sense in the hand ling of this business? President's Pre-War Preparations. Report made in the house by the chairman of a committee of investigation on the course pursued by the president for some months prior to our entry into the war promises some inter esting disclosures. In outline, the charge is made that the law which authorized the ap pointment of a council of national defense was perverted by the executive, and out of this grew some embarrassing situations. To its operations has been traced most of the vexatious delays that proved so costly at the start We know now what some suspected, that the mobilization of the National Guard on the Rio Grande in 1916 was not so much to overawe the Mexicans as to give Germany a notion of what force we might put into the field on short notice. Mr. Wilson had in his possession in formation of such nature as must have con vinced him of the impossibility of evading war with Germany, unless the leaders of that coun try radically changed their policy. He did not know what strength might be hastily mustered in this country. He did know that any force we could put under arms on short notice was woefully inadequate. In order to get at an exact basis the troop movement to Texas was under taken. It did not seriously impress either Hoh enzollern or Carranza, but it did show thought ful Americans how pitifully weak our nation was at the time. Authorized to name a council for defense as part of a preparedness movement, the president by a perversion of the plain intent of the law took to himself the formulation of plans for the entire campaign. That he had only the best of motives will be admitted. (That his judgment was at fault is equally plain. As a result the American people were put to enormous ex pense, while the process of getting ready was held back rtiany precious 'days. Further dis closures will be waited with interest, but enough is already shown to support the conclusion that the blunders that marked the war program were begun long before the public had any idea of what was going on. The Basis for Prosperity. "Good times" in America do not rest solely on the plenitude of money and the consequent high prices. A more substantial strata of real facts underlies the present prosperity, and en sures it continuance for an indefinite period. In -the building situation alone, and it is enough in itself to maintain industrial activity at its present pitch, we are faced with conditions never experienced. Careful estimates put the number of needed homes in the United States at 10,000,000. This makes no note of the buildings required for the expanded business of the land. Here is a pros pective expenditure of at least twenty billions. Other billions are required for housing the growing commerce and industry of America. Railroad maintenance, to say-nothing of ex tension and improvement, call for additional bil lions,' and in every phase or branch of industry similar demand for new capital is heard. The world has moved into an era of expansion greater than any it ever faced. Warnings against unwise speculation as well timed, and should be heeded, but opportunity for legitimate investment is presented on every hand. Capital may be profitably employed in so many ways the prudent investor may find some difficulty in making up his mind which to select from the multitude of inviting pros pects that surround him. The great work can not all be done at once, but must of necessity be extended over a considerable period of years, but its urgency will not diminish, and therefore it is as sure as earthly thing's can be that all our national energies may be usefully engaged for a long time to come. Restoration of wealth de stroyed by war and creation of new to meet the expanding needs of society underlie the activity of the present and guarantee the employment of all for the future. Control of Automobile Thievery. Massachusetts has a new law designed to deal with the crime of stealing automobiles. Essentially it follows the line suggested by The Bee more than two years ago, in that it places primary responsibility on dealers. Traffic in second-hand cars or parts of cars is minutely regulated, and heavy penalties prescribed for infractions. With vigilance on part of the police and ordinary prudence exercised by dealers, dis posing of stolen machines inMassachusetts ought to be attended with much difficulty, if not made impossible. In order to make his business suc cessful, the thief must have means for dispos ing of his plunder. When buyers become cau tious and dealers are all honest, the rogue1 will soon be out of business. But the country is large, the roads are filled with touring carsrand the dishonest are thus assisted in carrying on their traffic. Until regulations such as Massa chusetts has adopted are made generally, and registration is insisted upon everywhere, the thief will have the advantage of the owner. - Americans also "cleaned up" in the inter allied army athletic games, showing the versa tility of the boys who went over". You can't beat 'em -: Reindeer and the Esquimos Theodore G. Joslin in Boston Transcript. Washington Depletion of walrus, whale and other wild game threatened the-extinction of Alaska's Eskimo population a score of years ago. Today, thanks to the efforts of Dr. Shel don Jackson and five metropolitan newspapers, the Eskimos are literally living on the fat of the land, untroubled by the,, high cost of food anywhere else in the world, his transition has been made possible by the introduction of rein deer from Siberia, which have multiplied from a small herd to 140,000, and Alaska can care for 15,000,000 of these animals, thus assuring to the north a great industry and to the nation an im portant source of food supply. The Eskimo would have been content to loll around his igloo as long as the cold weather, whale oil and blubber lasted, but that was be fore the white man persisted in civilizing him, before lolling was classed as laziness, and be fore evolution of the Eskimo from a hunter and fisherman into a herder of reindeer had begun. Now, instead of idling away his time, he is preparing for the reindeer fairs, for this is the season for the meets in Arctic Alaska. , Here the Eskimo brings his handiwork for exhibi tion along with the sewing of the native women and girls of the .mission schools; here races are held, prizes won and reindeer exchanged and sold. Reports are made by delegates from the various reindeer stations; new head herders are chosen and improvements discussed for the gen eral betterment of the industry. Each year, as the fair draws near, the Eskimo may be seen busily working over long strips of leather or putting the finishing touches on a pair of reindeer mitts. Visions of the races of the reindeer barbecue which accompanies each fair, and the exhibits of sleighs, snowshoes, har nesses, halters and mittens, come to his mind, and he is glad that he has been named a dele gate. For, aside from the honor implied, the Eskimo is sociable by nature, is easily amused and thoroughly enjoys the sport which the races and various meetings afford. Herders and their deer arrive at the fair grounds 24 hours prior to the opening, each delegation floating a pennant bearing the name of the station from which they come. At Noatak the situation is ideal. Extending around a little creek bed, in the foothills, thick spruce timber forms a protecting wall about the colony of tents which the delegates pitch upon their arrival. The racing course is on a small plateau which may be easily viewed by the spectators. As one drives out to the grounds, eight miles from Noatak, he strikes one end of the race course. It is staked every 200 yards with fresh ly trimmed poles,' from the top of which flutter . red, white and blue pennants, made by the sew ing class of the Noatak Mission. For the 'day of all idays in the Arctic is at hand, the day when the Eskimo hopes to capture the blue rib bon for the fleetest deer. Patient and long have been his efforts to get his racer into proper trim. For weeks the choicest moss has been chosen and carefully guarded for the con sumption of the prize animal. Experience has taught the herder that he must feed often, but not to excess, as a fat deer, like a fat horsed is not a prize winner. The Eskimo drives on the course a few min utes before the time set forvthe race. Harnes and sled are new and shining. For the last time his mittened hands travel over the har ness to make sure that all is as it should be. The racer is tied to a post driven into the snow, for it is more than the driver can do to hold his deer in check. The rope is cut as the shot is fired, and they are off the reindeer running neck and neck, the drivers flecking the backs of the deer and enjoying the race fully as much as any Readville enthusiast. It may be a two mile or a 10-mile race. As the winner crosses the finish line the deer is decorated with a blue ribbon and the driver is awarded a gun, an ivory knife, or similar prize. The days are given over to the races, visit ing the exhibits and bartering and butchering the deer, but the evenings are reserved for the more serious business of the round-up. Reports from delegates are heard and suggestions are made for feeding and taming reindeer. Dele gates are chosen for the next year and in structed to organize local clubs. A board of head herdsmen, experienced in the business of handling the animals, is elected to supervise the work for the two ensuing years. The early history of the reindeer industry is romantic. Just at the time the Eskimo of Alaska was in danger of being wiped out be cause of the depletion of the wild game on which" he lived, Dr. Sheldon Jackson, a mission ary, together with pioneer prospectors, sug gested the introduction of reindeer from Si beria. The suggestion received little support. Instead, it brought open criticism and censure on those responsible. Not until Dr. Jackson was given the active support of the five news papers was public sympathy aroused in the un dertaking. These papers collected a fund by popular subscription, making possible the pur chase and transportation of the first reindeer from Siberia. Realizing that the country was interested, congress thereafter made appropriations. Friend of the Soldier Replies will be given in this column to questions relating to the soldier and his prob lems, in and out of the army. Names will not be printed. Ask The Bee to Answer. Record of the 23d Infantry. Joan Crane We can not give you the record of an individual unit, but the Second division, of which the 23d infantry was part had its full share of fighting. In June of last year it was sent into the front line between Montdidier and Paris, to stem the German wave. It attacked and re took the village of Bouresches, held by the best of the German guard regiments. At Belleau Wood it gave signal evidence of its superiority over the foe, and its capture of Vaux, July 1, is one of the most brilliant incidents of the war. Later it was in the thrust towards Soissons, and still later took part in the St. Mihiel and the Meuse-Argonne drives. It was in the front line twice in the lat ter. On the day the armistice was signed this division was in the line just east of Beaumont. All the regi ments in this division had plenty of opportunity to see action, and none of them missed battle. Recruiting Station. H. W.' M. We have no informa tion as to when the Second division will be sent home from Germany, where it is now stationed. There" is a recruiting station at Norfolk, where men are being enlisted for service in the United States army. Many Questions Answered. Mrs. C. G. We have no informa tion as to when the 806th pioneer infantry will sail from France. It is the purpose of the government to get all the forces home as quickly as possible. i B. M. Refrigerator Plant Com pany No. 501 still is stationed at Bor deaux, and will not be released for transfer to the United States until the homeward movement of the troops is nearer completed. Can not tell when this will be. Soldier's Friend The 410th tele graph battalion came in on the North Caroline on July 1. It was landed at New York. Do not know where it was sent for demobilization. Mother We can not tell you when the 35th service company of the signal corps will be released for re turn to this country. It Is in the service of supply and is stationed at Paris. Mary Some Individuals of the Fifth division have reached America, but the homeward movement has been delayed. It was ordered re cently to prepare for the trip.'how ever, and an announcement of its sailing date may come out from Washington at any time. Puzzled A man who had filed his declaration of intention to become an American citizen, and afterwards enlisted in the Canadian army, has forfeited his rights under that declaration, . and must begin his naturalization over again. L. M. R. Communicate with the bureau of navigation, Navy depart ment, Washington, D. C, in regard to the sailor you inquire for. You would have been notified if he were sick or disabled. Prosperity and Economics A man's personal circumstances make all the difference in the wdrld in his views of economic rights and wrongs. Give the most extreme and vociferent socialist on the town plat a job at $15,000 a year and he no longer will believe that all the money on earth ought to be divided up equally. Nd state in the union is more opposed to bol shevism in all its crack-brained and hideous tenets than, Kansas. Kansas stands like a rock, a living, speaking rock, for the recognized and just rights of property. Kansas is harvesting its wheat crop, 11,000,000 acres, 225,000,000 bush els of the golden grain, worth $450,000,000 if a cent. The only bone' Kansas has to pick with capitalism at present is that the automobile com panies are shamefully behind on their deliveries. Otherwise, the status quo is just about right. But if the government had fixed the price of wheat at 50 cents a bushel, or if the hot winds and the grasshoppers and the Hessian fly had harried and ravaged and despoiled those golden fields, Kansas, as we know by past experience, would be for bolshevism in some rural guise so earnestly, so deafeningly, so determinedly and so contagiously that all we eober-mmded. sound-money, rights-of-property citizens of Uhio and other points in the effete east would be worried to death about the control of the na tional government.

DREAMLAND ADVENTURE By DADDY. "THE WATER GOBLINS." (P'ffgy and Billy o iwlmmlng- with General Croaker and are made tiny by water nymph grass. Tfcajr find them aelve In a wonderful (oreat at the bottom of the river, and ar taken for a frolto by th water goblina.) ( The Cannibal Flab. BACK and forth through the un derwater jungle danced the merry gobline, at one moment glint ing in the sunshine and the next vanishing In gloomy shadows. Their frolic developed Into a rollicking game of hide and seek. This was jolly fun, for there was so much foliage just the color of the sunflsh that they could lay there, giggling with glee, without Peggy or Billy ever seeing them. Other fish lay in the concealing foliage, too big fish that didn't have the kindly dispositions of the sun flsh. Peggy was erfgerly searching for the hiders when she saw a glint of silvery scales behind a bunch of grass. She rushed up Joyfully to tag it, holding her hand back to give it a sound slap, when suddenly General Croaker rushed at her, knocked her back, then djved head long into a mud bank, crawling out of sight. There was a flurry in the water and away went the water gob lins racing for dear life. Peggy, puzzled by this, floated Looking Back at the Bunch of Grass, sue saw a ureat, Teeth-FlUed Mouth Open Wide in a Sleepy Yawn. about uncertainly. Looking back at the bunch of grass, she saw a great, teeth-filled mouth open wide in a sleepy yawn. In a flash she under stood the patch of silvery scales was on a monster fish which had been sound asleep In the grass and was now waking up. , "It's a pickerel!" gurgled Billy .when they were at a safe distance. "One snap and it would have been 'goodby Peggy.' " The water goblins soon recovered from the alarm, and after a time General Croaker came crawling out of the mud; Then they went at their frolio in greater glee than ever. Tir ing of hide-and-go-seek, they played f jllow-the-leader, and one of their stunts was to leap as far as they coulu out of the water. Peggy, fly ing for a moment into the air in one of these leaps, caught a glimpse of Pat Clancey, the widow's son, fish ing on the bank. "My, wouldn't he be surprised if he pulled me up at the end of the worms. The game consisted In see ing how big a chunk each one could line?" she gurgled. As she splashed back into the wa ter she found the water gobline in a new game. They -were gathered around Pat's hook, which dangled in the water, loaded with squirming ing how big a cunk each one could bite off the hook without getting -caught. Peggy . and Billy wanted to Join the sport, but didn't a bit fancy biting a worm. Poor Pat Jerked out his line and rebaited his hook, but he didn't catch one of the merry, but wary, sunflsh goblins. They were too wise for him. When this fun was at its height, there came a sudden rush as a whole school of, minnows fled by In panic. - "Look out! Look out! The can nibal fish are coming!" they gasped. With one flirt of their tails the water goblins vanished into the Jun gle. General Croaker abruptly lost himself in a mass of weeds. Huge shadows moved slowly through the water. Looking up, Peggy and Billy saw that the shad ows were made by great flsh. At the same moment the fish saw them. ' Powerful tails thrashed out and the water fairly boiled as the flnny cannibals rushed downward. Peggy and Billy fled desperately. Plunk! they hit the bottom with the cannibals coming fast. Quickly using his wits, Billy dug into the mud, throwing it up In handfuls. It roiled the water, making a concealing cloud that hid them for a momerft. Creeping along threugh the murky Six Months' Lynching Record. Tuskogee Institute, Ala., July 3. To the Editor of The Bee: I send you the following information con cerning Jynchings for the first six months of this year. I find, accord ing to the records kept by the de partment of records and research of the Tuskogee Institute, Monroe N. Work in charge, that there have been in the first six months of 1919 28 lynchings. This is seven less than the number, 35, for the first six months of 1918, and 14 more than the number, 14, for the first six months of 1917. Of those lynched 25 were negroes and three were white. Seven of those put to death were charged with the crime of rape. One woman is reported to have been lynched. The states in which lynchings oc curred and the number for each state are as follows: Alabama, 3; Arkansas, 4; Florida, 2; Georgia, 3; Louisiana, 4; Mississippi, 7; Missouri. 1; North Carolina, 2; South Carolina, 1 Texas 1. ,.' ROBERT R. MOTON, Principal. Rebukes "Sandy's" Savagery. Omaha, July 6. To the Editor of The Bee: As a chooser of pugilistic champions, Sandy Griswold proved himself as inaccurate in his hinted choice as was his description of the three heroic rounds, contaminated by his vitrolic and abusive pen. Were he describing a bull fight or a hog-killing scene in a packing house, his story would be more accurate and realistic. His egotistical opinion of his own judgment having had so hard a fall within so short notice, combined with his daily efforts at alliteration, rhetorical phrases and pomposity of expression, intoxicated his mentality to promulgate the 10c quacious article depreciating the strenuous efforts of both the fight ers. The world knows the fight was won by the aggressiveness of Demp sey and not the cowardice of Wil lard, as Sandy infers. Willard and Sandy are both old, but the public prefer optimistic youth to garrulous old age. P. C. BOWMAN. BITS FOR THE CURIOUS.
