THE FOREIGN VIEWPOINT
There couM hardly be anything more interesting to
un itbiu American man the views entertained by tin
peoples of other lands ooneerning American ideas and
What they think of ns and our Institution! just now i
of more than ordinary Importance In view of the promi
nence which our nation ban assumed since the signing ol
the armistice, and the fact that President Wilson's now
famous "Fourteen Points." have been generally accepted
as the starting point from which negotiations' shall pro-
eeed in th. conversations preliminary to the actual Rlg1l
iiig of the peace treat . The President's authorship ol
this program has heightened the tuition's prestige and it
lias made him the conurrandine, figure in the world today.
In this latter connection, the great publications, as in
dicated by the current pi views of European magasines and
newspapers believe that all Europe is vicing with the Pres
ident 's most ardent admirers here at home in according
first place among the world's grcal men. The people of
Europe arc entirely at a loss in attempting to understand
the objections that have been raised on this side of the va
ter to the President's trip to Euros.
According to the European writers President Wilson
is the summation of all civic rtrtuas. The English journ
alists can not find smonf their prominently active men, one
with whom to class him. According to them be is more
conversant with the growth of Miitish dinlom.it r hfnftnrv
than is Balfour himself. They declare that he is more
profound than Lloyd George and more eloquent than is
Asquith. In fact they find that of all British statesmen.

GETTING STARTED RIGHT.
It is very evident from the facts brot out at the meet
ing of Nyssa and Ontario citizens at the ( 'ommericial elub
Tuesday evening, that there is a great deal of work to be
done here at home before the Owyhee Project can be ad
equately presented for consideration by the Reclamation
It is to be regretted that then was not a big delcgatiol
and the results justified the gathering, for it proved again
that, "two heads are better than our." for discussion in
which all phases ,(' the question were considered served h
dispell a number of illusions and bring the matter down ti
a practical working basis.
It is to he regretted that there was not a big deligatioi
for Vale present at the meeting, tor the Owyhee project li
of supreme importance to all the north end of the county,
and it is deserving of the united support of all the emu
mttnities in the county. However assurance was given b
Mr. (i. II. Cumy of Vale that the county seat town would
give its aid in Furthering the project, and that will be appreciated.
The work for the Owyhee project affords an excellent
opportunity to demonstrate the ability of the people of the
county to unite tor the advancement of all, and to relegate
sectional interests, tor trul that which licnel its an v sect ion
of this valley does actually benefit all the valley.
The promotion pf the Owyhee Project could serve no
better purpose for the advancement pf the county, aside
t coin the material aspect, than in tlntr. hrinc,inu the com
munities together. The start has been made, It remains
for the committee named, the papers, the Commercial or
ganisations and ;dl affected to keep up the interest and
enthusiasm needed to put the project over for tin
mate benefits of all concerned.

The fact that could not but be marked, in all of the ed
itorial statements, in all of the expressions of grief l po
litical friend and foes, uu the untimely death of Theodore
Roosevelt, was the recurring of the word, 'great "
That was the measure of Roosevelt. There could be
no agnostic on the subject of Teddy. One had cither to
accept ins positions on public quotations o diametrically
oppose them. Teddy never occupied a middle ground.
There was never any doubt concerning what meant uh. n
