"Over the pages of British History tor
the past three ycfiis have been written two
words." recently declared Herbert Hoover,
and those words air, "Too Late".
Their is lint too much truth in that
Statement, for ttl that indictment ean he seen
the asnse of the JsfsaJ of armies In (lain
olli, mid the first expedition in Mesopot
amia. Likewise because "too late" did tbej
recognise the Importance of Immediate and
adequate action, there resulted the failure in
the HalUans which permitted the destnic
tion of Serbia and Boumania. "Too Late"
everv where in going to the assistance of
tlnir allies the British Annies carl.v in the
war suffered enormous losses. Thousands
i j thousands of hrave British Tommies
now rest in unknown graves, 'somewhere in
Prance," somewhere in the Balkans, " i
where in afcaopotania"
The British public would not aeknowl
adgt tliat old fool ball axiom that, "the lust
drfense is a mighty H I offense". The man
who can hit hardest is the man who yets hurt
the least, especially if he hits first. John Bull
W.lltcd ten lolly, he sell! troops 'Moo late" to
the support of (lejieral Townsend and made
the capture of Kut-el Asian possible, and
with it SPl bsefc tin campaign J ear hesides

Hpint of procrastinalioii.
Por three yean tin people of the Tnited

The damnable shame this count rj will
suite'- if the Liberty Loan in not mberibed
should bring disgrace to those who in then
oi.oleiice could have made it a success. All
the slackers are not to be found among thn
who avoided registration. The man who litis

lacker than he who fml.s to register
Have those wealthy citizens who have
not done their full share ever .-topped to
think that the government which can son
script men can also conscript property Is
it not more reasonable that propert) be sm
Bseated than men conscripted 1 Human life
is mora sacred than mere money.
If the rich men of this nation do not
perform their duty and dedicate their wealth
to the service of the nation instead of, as
some are doing, complaining of the low in
terest rate, thev may find such a revolution
of public opinion against them that it will
not bf hard for congress to take a step to
ward eommandeering the wealth of the na

money to do their dut.v . If the rich men fail,
that failure just helps make socialist- ami
Fortunately, however, most of the men

They gel the greater benefit therefrom.
There, is too, another reason why flu
wealthy citiens of this section particularly
should had the movement for the Lihertv
Loan. The wealth they have accumulated
in the past three v cars is in a large sense
dyed in blood of millions of victims of tin
awful German war. Our prosperity Iss war
