Reduced Crops—Answer to Haitis Government figures show that the farmers in the winter wheat areas have reduced their wheat acreage by 12,000,000 acres. P.resent acrage is about 3,000,000 less than that, of 1915. We have here the silent ans wer of the neglected producer to un favorable conditions. This answer also meets the stories about great farm prosperity effectively. If the farmers had done well with winter wheat last year and had the mans now they would plant a larger rather than a smaller acreage. Huj there is no way by which the farmer Allowing 10 bushels Lo the acre, we Khali be short 120,000,000 bushels of winter wheat next year. Denckinv oixl Kolehal Foiakcii Decision ol the allied council to abandon aid io Deuekine and Kol chiik is announced in the press. Whe ther the airtight blockade will also be lifted is not stated. There is little probabiliy that thai it will, for the decision to stop direct aid is not prompted by desire to make peace with Russia but by the belief that aid to the factions fighting in the field is like sticking money into the ground, and none of the allies can afford this. Shortly after the petering out of the attack of I'ctrograd came the smashing defeat of Kolchak, and now Denekine is retroating with seven league boot's. Me is also attacked in the rear by revolting peasants in the Caucasus. And England alone lias spent $470,000,000 to date on Kol chak, Deneltine and the north Rus sian li la sco. Perhaps the widespread protest by American business men against re fusal to allow them to send goods to Russia for cash, wiill have an impor tant effect on the blockade. The lack of balance between city and agricul tural production caused by the block ade is probably the worst problem Soviet Russia lias to face. .Many allied statesmen and writers expected this to break Soviet rule long ago. Standardized Flour Our government grain corporation ask« public support for a method that really reduces the margin between producer and consumer. Few will question that our marketing costs have mounted, because we have got ten away from bulk goods and have been "educated" by advertisers tq special brands and expensive pack ages. The consumer pays for the advertising and the other frills. Why not standardize our necessaries and cut out this expensive nonsense? The grain corporation offers wli.it -it says Is a good flour much cheaper than the producers of "brands" can sell It for that is, it will retail for about 75 cents per one-sinteent.h of a barrel, as opposed to the 89 cents ot more asked by the dealers with fancy labels and big advertising bills. This government flour, purchased on de tailed specifications from the millers, is marked "United States Grain Cor poration Standard Pure Wheat Flour.' The milling combine may be able to put a crimp into this flour-market ing reform. Time will tell. But it is certainly in the right direction If -the government would guarantee the «rtlalty of the bulk goods in the im portant lines And it the people could u'mebin their "education" on brands, ntaVketitig coete could be considerably reduced.

"Seditious" Funeral Raiding a funeral may appear to be strange and atrocious affair, but United States—in Braddock, Pa., to be exact. In that state the striking steel workers are forbidden the con stitutional right of assemblage and free speech because if allowed to as semble the strikers would be hearten ed by the number turning out. State police or Cossacks as they are called, are on hand to see that none stop to homes or halls. One of the strikers there had died and all the strikers turned out to fol low the body to the cemetery. Nat urally such a turnout would bolster up the morale of the strikers and that is why the funeral had to be raided, not withstanding our Constitution and statutory law.

INVOLUTIONS The term revolution in its proper sense implies marked change in poll tics or social conditions and not mere ly domestic violence, as so many ap pear to think. About the only certain thing in the world is that all things are constantly changing. When social change comes rapidly, either with or without force, we call it revolution or •overturning". Also in looking back on a period in which a marked change has come slnvrty, like the change from feudalism to industrial-. Ism,- historians speak of it as revolu tion. Again the press writers almost al ways try to give the imm-emion that revolution Is something starting from the bottom by wicked workng-ctass "agitators". Whereas history shows two exampee of revolution by tha upper classes to one like the French revolution, originating with the com mon people. The Roman republic is overthrown by upper-class politicians and submerged by Julius Caesar. Na poleon I sets aside the political effect of the French revolution. Napoleon III. overthrows the French republic. Pan-Oerman imperialists capture con trbl of Germany.
