There have been many who
ritieised the Pood Ailministr.i-

It should always be borne in

Mr. Hoover has never asked the
Vmeriean people to make a sac
rifice that was not necessary.
On the other hand, as quickly
is conililious ot supply aim
ransport.ition would permit, the
restrictions have been removed.
The glorious success of our ar

The history of the world holds
no reeonl winch even faintly ue-

formed in ihe past six months.
It has been a source of wonder
mil gratification and hope to our
Hies, and a swiftly growing eer
niuty of despair and defeat to
tin kaiser and his Junkers.
Maybe it is not proper to say
that "the Yanks did it" so far as
the lighting is concerned (though
