Entered at the Postoffice in Salem, Oregon, as second class matter.
As war's alarums recede an.l
the thought of the country is at
tracted to the arts of peace we
must beware lest the demobili
zation of troops and the conver
sion of the weapons of war into
implements 'of industry should
lead to a discontinuance of the
manifestations of patriotism. The
flag of our country is' just as glor
ious in peace as in war. It is not
a relic to be stored away and for
gotten like bayonets in their
sheaths when the guns have
ceased to roar. The sword may
rust in its scabbard, but the Stars
and Stripes should be ever pres
ent, ever new.
Men who always stood uncov
ered when the flag was carried
past by troops on their way to
rights, not human wrongs.
Not all those living in our
country, not all those born here,
are 'Americans at heart. This
condition is partly due to con
genital perverseness of mind and
largely to misdirected education.
There are associations that place
the red flag in epirk above the
Stars and Stripes; who make a
mockery of patriotism, who would
little I inspire contempt for the emblems
of government in order that gov
ernment itself might be more
easily destroyed. It is by exam
ple a3 well as precept that this
l ernicious doctrine should be con
luted. True Americans are not
ashamed of their patriotism. They
do not carry their love of per
sonal liberty to the point of ex
pressing contempt for national
unity. They regard personal ser
vice to their country alike as a
privilege and a duty. They re
move their hats when the na
tional colors go by; they stand
when the national anthem is
played and they condemn tho3e
who, for any reason, abstain from
similar manifestations of patriotism.

P.rhat would it amount to? The little sacrifice necessary for
each individual to pay his share would be as nothing.
I ! Thej real sacrifice, the really overburdened treasury, is
the treasury of the ex-soldier, who sacrificed his time, his
hioney, his job, his business, his prospects for the. future, his
bpportuhities for promotion; went into soldier camps, trained
land drilled and performed service for sixteen hours a day,
faced the terrors of the submarines in crossing, the ocean,
hvent into the fight on, the western front in a perfect hell of
Icombat,! night and day, that it is impossible for any man to
fpicture by tongue or pen, and that it is impossible for any
man to understand and appreciate who has not been there.
When they went over there," they went expecting to
bo sacrificed every one of them, to be blown into smithereens
by shot and shell, to be gathered up in shapeless masses and
dumped into common craves marked "unknown.

.ilany'of them got their jobs back; many of them did
not. A Dercentaire were found unfit by physical disabilities
caused by their wounds or the rigors of the service, to hold
their old jobs or to make their way profitably in the world.
Some of them started hi again where they left off, with
out particular handicap except a net loss dt from one to three
years out of their lives ' never to be regained, and lor wnat:

subscribed as liberally as the soldiers, according to their in-J
romes, the entire cost of the war .would have been met by
c ver-subscription of the first bond issue)
There isn't any use trying to tell of the sacrifices and
losses of these men from that service. It can't be done.
There isn't any use trying to reimburse them for those
losses- - , ; ' j -vi-.-'i --1' "

And the soldiers don't ask it and don't want it. They ask
for no reimbursement, but for a pitiably small readjustment
to help them get a start in the world. ,. v. i
The government and the people have an obligation
They owe this much to the soldiers.
The cost to. our country of one month's continuation of
the war would, have been more than the cost of this entire
bonus. -vf'i'-:. i IH'vvN ' :'.;' :K" " v5-
A1 European authorities expected this war to continue
another year. It was because the American doughboys fought
like hellions, beyond all. precedent, beyond all possibility of
expectation, that, the power of the' Kaiser was broken in No
vember, 1918, instead of in the summer of 1919.
v The money that was saved to the people of this country
arid tcf the people itif Europe by, this early peace makes the
cost of this bonuSjlook like a Chinese copper with a hole in
it. ; It: is estimated that the cost of another nine, months
war to the United States .would have been more than the en
tire cost previous to that time, yet this country would have
ptood it and several years more if neaessary, and it would
have weathered the storm. ; '
' Why . such . cant ; and piffle as , thb ' attack by Secre
tary Mellon, fostered in the Senate by the Democratic leader,
Senator Underwood? Why didn't they think of this cost!
while ,the boys were over there? Why were the boys kept
in the trenches at one dollar a day, most of which the g6v
ernment' took back, while those who remained al keme be
came profiteers4 beyond their wildest dreams?
Men whose, normal earning capacity was two dollars to
three dollars were able to earn fifteen dollars and upwards.
Little! contractors became great plutocrats. More than a
thousand millionaires were-made. More millionaires were
made by the war in the United States than existed before the
war in all the' world combined , ;v s
..And it wasn't right. ;" V
, ; It was a sin to turn the home country into, a perfect orgy
of extravagance and grrt and plunder at the expense of the
government-rat the expense of the men who had gone across,
and at a cost of thousands of lives bv decreased efficiency.
.Isn't it pitiable to hear this cry at this time? It is mere-'
ly another move to protect further the profiteers at the ex-i
pensd of the ex-service men. None of those profits went to
