Although the sheer weight of America's millions of troops will
be sufficient to crush the Hun hack of the Rhine ami batter down
upon the Kaiser’s ears the remnants of the world crown he thought
to wear, it has not been numbers, but typical American mobility,
which has saved the day for the entente thus far.
Wilhelm and the German General Staff, admitting the gigantic
resources of the United States, made the error of calculating in years
instead of weeks the time necessary for the shaping of those resources
for war purposes.
The day that we entered the war, scores of our fleet destroyers
sped east across the Atlantic. To a ship, they reported upon arrival
at Rritish naval bases, “ Ready for action."
When continued losses by submarines seemed likely to make
good the German threat to starve England. Schwab turned a hundred
shipyards loose on a shipbuilding program such as the wildest
optimist had not dreamed possible.
American railroad men built 2000 miles of track in France;
hundreds of huge warehouses were erected; mountains of food,
munitions and other supplies were landed.
When the German masses, released from all Eastern fronts,
began their ominous drive through Picardy, American troops, months
in advance even of the hurry-up American program, began to pour
through the channel gateways, and the llun was held, then driven
Thus American ability to concentrate quickly its war efforts on •
any given point on the enemy line has foiled every Hun attempt
whether by sea or land.
A really great demonstration of this American faculty will be
given in the Fourth Liberty Loan. Confronted with the necessity of
raising a war loan of twice the size of any of its epoch-making pre
decessors, we are called upon to finish the task in three weeks.
Only by the full and united effort of every man. woman and
child in the United States can this great task be completed in the
time set. It is as certain that it will be completed successfully as %■
that the grim courage of America on French battlefields will continue
to batter hack the Hun.

“ I like a nice minee pie

The foregoing was one of the favorite songs at the front in
1915. “ Hello, who’s your lady friend!” was another.
Not much abouti the war in them, is there? There wasn’t in
“ Tipperary,” either.
The boys in France don't sing songs about canning the kaiser,
dying for the flag, and so forth. They leave that to us. They are
making the extreme effort, the utmost sacrifice, and to chatter about
it is. nauseous to them. Continuous abnegation endues them with a
dignity and refinement which we who are safe in Stayton have not

The newspaper reader sometimes asks himself, and he sometimes
asks the newspaper editor—only less politely—if it isn’t possible to
print something that isn’t all about the war.
The war is to blame; not the editor. In “ Alice in Wonderland”
runs the verse:
“ The time has come,” the Walrus said
“ To talk of many things;
Of shoes, and ships, and sealing-wax.
And cabbages and kings.”
This was written a generation or two before the war. and col
lected subjects were intended to be miscellaneous, and non-eontro-
Try to pick one of them that isn’t a war-topic now. Shoes and
ships remind us sadly of war prices; sealing wax recalls a certain
Hague treaty—now a scrap of paper; while cabbages and kings have
dug themselves in on the front page.
Don’t blame the poor editor. The mailed fist hits you no harder
than it hits him.
