Oregonian Has Wonderful Expo
sition of Wilson's Trip Abroad
READ IT AND WITH CARE
Article Stands as Premier Posi
tion on American President
In a recent editorial the Oregon
inn covered the ground anient the
President's trip abroad in a man
lier that leaves nothing unsaid.
Lvery man, woman and child
should rend this editorial, for it
brt ii I in s the proper spirit. The
world politics are now the center
of attraction, and nowhere yet
has the Argus found an article so
lucid setting forth the argument
sustaining Mr. Wilson's trip lo
France. The editorial in ipiestion
was published Nov. 20, under the
caption, "President's Journey to
Europe," mid reads ns follows:
"The intention of President
W ilson to attend the meeting of
the Peace Congress at Versailles
will no i t with the approval of
Americans. The Pence Congress
will decide the future of almost
all nations of I-'uropc and of
some in Asia and Africa, ami
will, in effect, draw up a new
constitution for the world. It
will be ntteiideil by the Premiers
of all the allied countries, with
whom the President will rnilk.
Mr. Wilson's presence is need
ed becaiiM- of the high position
he holds in the councils of the
allies, nml of the implicit confi
dence which all the allied peo
ples repose in him. He has de
fined the war aims of this and the
allied nations in terms which
have won acceptance among
them, and, finally, by our ene
mies. He is best (pialitied to in
terpret nud explain his fourteen
principles and to bring them into
complete harmony with the views
of the French, Itritish nud Italian
Premiers. He ran render valua
ble service by est.-ibli-.hing sym
pathetic personal relations with
Ihe allied statesmen.
There is no force in the possi
ble objection that no - former
President has left the territory of
the I'nitt d Slates during his term
of olliee. This is a time when
new precedents are being made
in wnr, diplomacy, statesmanship
and every other iitjd. Never he
fore was there such good occa
sion for the President to go
abroad. Nor will the President's
absence from the country serious
ly obstruct performance of his
functions, lie will not, as would
have been the case before steam
power and tel.-igraphy came into
use, be cut otT for weeks from
eommiinicatioii with his subordi
nates. The voyage will occupy a
week at most, and he will
throughout be in wireless com
munication with both America
and F.urope. He will be able to
send instruct ions to Ids" cabinet
or messages to Congress by cable
or wireless. If an important bill
should need his signature, it
coultj be sent to Versailles and be
back in Washington in two
weeks. A journey to France will
place him no more out of touch
with Washington than would a
journey to Oregon.
Of the nature of Mr. Wilson's
reception in Lin-ope there can bo
no doubt. He will be received ns
the head of a Nation which came
to the aid of democracy in the
hour of its greatest peril. His
speeches since the United States
declared war have been an inspi
ration to all free peoples and to
all peoples struggling to win
freedom to continue the fight.
He, more than any other man,
defined the issue as one between
despotism and democracy. His
utterances led to the disintegra
tion of the Hapsburg monarchy,
and they did much to break the
morale of the German army and
people.. His visit to Paris and
the other allied capitals will be a
