If the League of Nations were to be a league of victors such an argu
ment might have relevance, but to satisfy the ideals of its founding it
must take in neutrals whjo lost no men in the war arid enemy states
whose losses 'were on the bfher side of the scale. To succeed, the
League must face the future; Australia's 'sacrifices are a claim to
honor but not to a vote in "the federation of the world. . Its claim to
& vote springs directly from thd fact that it is a political unit.-
i Americans can sympathize 'cordially with the "republican
league',' which is now being formed, in Germany of all the elements,
democratic, centrist and socialist, which are opposed to the restora
tion of a monarchical form of government. The formation of such a
league is a testimonial to the success with which America waged war.
General Pershing's early retirement from the army seems to be
forecast in the public statement, issued la t Lincoln, Neb., that he had
bought 'a residence in that city and, "as soon as I return, as far as I

It Is Interesting to note that the
average clergyman of today does not
hold to the view of Uncle Araos. but
that the ministers, as a rule, are not
only themselves Inquiring into all
things, in search of truth, but are en
couraging the lay members of their
churches to think and to question in
order that they may advance mental
1y and spiritually.' This Is a hopeful
