A TASK TO IX
A task to do ana a bite to eat,
A coat o wear and a bed at night,
1 hcse four make up this life complete.
All else la sham If you view It right,
A task to do and a home to keep,
A wife to amlle and a child to love,
A place to play and a place to sleep
What more shall be In the Heaven
One task la all that a man can do,
fine, coatrla all that a man can wear
ftt who haa eaten a dinner through
Could eat no more of the costliest
Gold cannot sweeten a baby's smile.
Fume cannot better a good wife's
Sleep doesn't come to the couch of
, So rest content as you think of this.
Work is the father of appetite
Better the dinner that's truly earned
Than the silvered table that glows at
"Where little la eaten and much is
Better he sleeps at the close of day
Who weary comes to his humble
Than the man who putteth no care
Better he wakes when the night Is
The humble home and the castle wall
Shelter men's happiness, your's and
"And God has given the same to all
And strengthened them by His love
A task to do and a bite to eat.
A coat to wear anda bed at night.
These four make up this life complete.
All else is sham if you view It right.

WE SHOULD HAVE FIXED IT WHILE THE FIXING
WAS GOOD . ,.
'HEREjmay be more truth than poetry in the followimr view
oi England and Japan as expressed in an editorial in the
Today England haa divided feelings about "the United States, just as it had
during the civil war.
The aristocracy doesn't like tis because we have no titles and no king, and
yet have succeeded In life. We are a bad example to their lower and middle
cisrses.. roor aristocrats marry rich American, women, but that is only be

nnft mey will work at politics, war, sports, but not for bread and butter.
They think It is more, honorable to marry for money than to work for it.
Fundamentally they dislike our style. To the British upper classes all
, Americans are middle class. lower middle class, or lower class.
These British aristocrats are typified in Lord Curxon, the minister for for
"Sen affair. He is tying to renew the treaty of alll.we between Great Br t
Kin and Japan. He knows that there is friction, which may develop into war.
between America and Japan. He is anxious to line up Great Britain with
It would probably be the policy of the Tory class In case of s' h a war for
ireat Britain not to shoot guns .at us. She would simply "hold the ring" and
Vtserve a benevolent neutrality in faAr of her ally. She would prevent an
effective blockade of Japan..
A man like Curzon, who was viceroy of India, and had 3nrt.fl9O.OOO Indians
prostrate before him, has more sympathy with a militarist empire than with
a democratic republic,
A good long war between us and the Japanese would weaken us both. At
the same time Great Britain would be selling her goods to both sides and
vould regain her place as first world power.
Just now we? are the first world power and England knows it.
The middle and labor classes in England are more sympathetic with us.
They don't want to see a yellow imperial power beat a White republic. They
nren t i-eally a bit enthusiastic about their lords and masters and often wish
that, like us, they were well rid of thm. ,
It is working with them that we An get anywhere. And where we want
to get Is to get Britain away from Japan.
If those views are correct, and some of them are, it is most
unfortunate we did not fix things up while the fixing was good
to wit, last year. At the Versailles peace conference we had
tr.ings our way with reference to Japan, all except Shantung,
and had the peace treaty been adopted by the United States
there was a method of correcting the Shantung affair. Japan
.. asked for racial equality at Versailles and did not get it because
President Wilson opposed. The leacue covenant if arlnntori
fcy Lncle, Sam, would have automatically settledthe Japanese
iiiimirration problem according to our own wishes and Japan
would havfe been helpless to protest.
But the senate treaty foes played politics at a time when
politics should have been taboo and here we are. President
Harding is striving earnestly to recover in part at least the
ground we lost. But it is going to be a hard fjght He has far
to fo and even if he should wish to go there is a question wheth
er the senate will follow. How much better it.

WHAT OTHERS SAY
lJ-SSOX OF ltl'SSIA IMIKIl
(From the Chicago Tribune )
The curtain of official concealment
which has hid Uie Russian scene so
long is now thrust aside and a picture
tragic and terrible is given to the eyes
of pitying Christendom. Famine and
plague, wild horses of a new apocal
ypse, harry the Russian countryside
and make desolation in towns and cit
ie. There is disaster on a scale which
r.iodein Europe has pot known.
To the Russian appeal for help
tin re can be and there will be only
one answer. It Is well that our gov
ernment has made conditions for t'.ie
release of Americans' held by the fa
natic -powers at JIoscow; but these be

proved by reason, for there should be
lasting friendship between our nations.
Russia has been passing through a
stage of fanatic control, but she will
emerge from it, and once her feet are
011 the road of real republican pro
gress there should be strong bonds of
friendly understanding and coopera
tion b twen us.
Meanwhile Russia's plight holds n
lesson which 110 democratic nation is

uy concessions made to lha peasant's
demand for his own land, which
cracked the communist system from

Russian farmer was kept In constant
fear of the loss of his produce under
uie communist system, maintained by
ihe central jiower of the proletarian
dictatorship that ho refused to pro

the needs of the town proletariat. He
raised only enough for his own imme

him. Therefore there was no reserve

The bolshevik, with his book the

reasoned in a vucuum and has created

His elaborate mechanism left out the
mainspring of humuif effort, the mo
