Entered as second-class matter at the postoffice, Eugene, Oregon.
And so the war was finished and the nations made peace.
Germany was thoroughly beaten, Japan nearly wiped out.
And in order that there might be no future wars the Great Pow
ers remaining established an International Police Force and
combined their ships into an International Navy and set up a
really efficient, ironclad, rockbottomed League for the ever
lasting perpetuation of World Peace.
Put the remakers of the world failed to take into account
human selfishness, greed, and jealousies, of which they them
selves possessed the lion’s share among the countries of the
world. And so it was that after a while difficulties arose. The
Russians, with a small fleet had comparatively weak voice in di
recting the International Navy, and demanded a correspondingly
larger vote in the affairs of the AVorld Police. Britain and the
United States denied this to her. Argentina, now a first-class
power, led several of the South American states in a demand
for greater influence in all three organizations.
China had been sold down the river at the peace table, being
exhausted and in no condition to protest, as well as belonging to
the “inferior” yellow race. As a consequence, she joined Russia
in demanding a fuller share in determining world policy. The
Balkan peoples, as dissatisfied with the boundaries arbitrarily
fixed for them by the Great Powers as ever, began to fight
among themselves again.

When the World Peace League met to settle these Balkan
quarrels, China, Russia, and what was left of Japan formed an
Asiatic bloc and demanded more power in the organization.
[When the Western Powers refused (Europe and America
possessed the superior races, the superior civilization!), the
Eastern group broke away and declared a real “Asia for Asiatics.”
India, whom the West had decided should remain clamped tight
under British rule, promptly expelled its masters and joined its

The British demanded action, and the International Army
was ordered by the League grand council to invade India. The
Russians and Chinese withdrew their troops from the Army, and
declared their intention of defending the Indians. Whereupon
the world went to war once more.
Led by Argentina, the Latin American nations, tired of
,Yankee economic domination, saw a chance to break free. Event
ually all of them except Brazil declared war on the U. S.

When the ten years’ struggle was over, the combined
peoples of Asia and South America (over 1,300,000,000) had
completely conquered the peoples of Europe and North America
(about 500,000,000). The victors thereupon proceeded to wipe out
the greater part of the white race. A solid, unshakeable dictator
ship was set up by the consolidated peoples of Asia over the
outlying races, who were far too few ever to hope to oppose the
teeming Asiatics. And thus permanent AVorld Peace was at last
obtained and prosperity and unity were assured. N. Y.

Early in the wintertime, when
icy winds begin to pile up snow in
the Pepsodent mountains, you may
be lucky enough to glimpse that
rare wodland creature, the Blue
eyed Fooblefooz lurking in some
nook or cranny of whatever.
As Dr. P. Terwiliger Botts says
in his dissertations on the animal:
“The Blue-eyed Foblefooz is cer
tainly not an elephant.” With this
profound statement all nature lov
ers are bound to agree.
Later in the year the skies turn
purple with green polkadots, and
then the Blue-eyed Fooblefooz can
be seen sitting on the edge of a
mountain stream brushing his
2,368 teeth with snow from the
Pepsodent mountains, which has a
high irium content.
Or as one naturalist said when
he saw a Blue-eyed Fooblefooz
which had escaped from a zoo in
his bedroom one morning: “Pass
