DEFEAT of the peace treaty by the senate has done
much to shake confidence in America abroad. No
longer is this nation exalted as world leader. Distrust and
suspicion are replacing esteem. Only in Germany is there
In the senate's view, America was not fighting to
end war, but, to help perpetrate it. America would shirk
any part of responsibility to the world. America, accord
ing to the senate's interpretation, has no interest in hu
manityonly in itself.
America, according to the vie wof the senate, as ex-,
pressed in the treaty rejection, is suspicious of its allies
and friendly to its enemy. It affronts Great Britain,
shows hostility towards Japan, advocates the abandon
ment of France and serves notice to the, struggling new
nations that America washes its hands of them. '
America expects world commerce but if America
refuses to stand with the world, the world will close ..its
doors to America. With loss of political prestige invar
iably goes loss of commercial prestige. If America can
live without the world, most assuredly the world can live
In this world we get just about what we give. Sus
picion of others, breeds suspicion of .ourselves in others.
We cannot receive, unless we give. We sow what we reap.
In rejecting the treaty the senate is sowing the seeds
of discord that America will not be long in reaping. Dis
trusting others we will in turn be distrusted. Refusing
aid to others, we will be refused aid by others. From the
most respected and loved of nations, we are on our way
to become the least respected and most hated but per
haps we can make an alliance with that other pariah
among nations Germany which is what the senate ob

N THE Literary Digest of. November 22, appears an ac
count of the policing of the steel regions Of Pennsvl-
vania. during the steel strike by Leland Olds, formerly a
professor at Amherst and afterwards a member of the
War Labor Board. It is. reprinted from a recent issue ;
of "The World Tomorrow", a radical New York weekly.
The writer presents' the Viewpoint of the strikers in sym
pathetic vein and reveals a regime of brutality and repres
sion reminiscent of darkest Russia.
, . . . Numerous incidents are given showing injustice, mis
fortune and poverty among the workers. Freedom of
press, of speech and of assemblage have . gone . by, the
board. ' Arrests are numerous and made without ccause
in the effort to break the strike by confiscating all the
workers' money. Protest over the 12-hour day is regard
ed as criminal and every effort made by the state police
to intimidate the strikers. Entire families are carted to''
jail, heads broken for appearance on the street, private
property ruthlessly destroyed, intimidation and sanction
ed lawlessness the order of the day. Riot sticks have yet to
be used in a riot, but they are daily used to' prod, to goad,
to clout and bruise, to terrorize and provoke the strikers.
Despite the provocation, the strikers have not retal
iated, realizing that rioting and violence would defeat the
strike and this despite the fact that leaders have been
jailed aid assemblage forbidden. Most of the strikers are
foreigners and speak in broken English, but they have
learned their rights, as Americans are striking for their
rights the right to be treated as freemen instead of
The steel barons refusedto arbitrate the old answer
of industrial autocracy. They imported these foreigners
to secure the cheapest labor in the world in order to swell
their profits but as the toilers became Americanized,
they rebelled at their serfdom. By sheer power.of wealth
the greatest corporation in the world is winning the strike
by starving the strikers outbut their sacrifice will not
have been in vain for it will hasten the day of real democ
racy. As it is, the steel trust is doing its utmost to fur
ther the Bolshevist cause. It's record of crime against
humanity is a long one and the Homestead massacre and
present brutality only incidents. It controls the state
of Pennsylvania as absolutely as ever feudal baron con
trolled his domains and Pennsylvania has yet to be

"Did you meet mother last night?"
I asked. ,
"No, I didn't meet any one except
an old guy with chin whiskers who
said he was the family doctor. Tnat
being the case, I wonder your father
lived as long as he did. I can't un
derstand why you didn't come with
him to meet me. You must have
known that I should expect to Bee
you." ... .
"I've learned, John, that one does
not always get what one expects. I
expected you to come to the telephone
yesterday when I askd for you."

came quickly toward me and put his
I arms around me saying In my ear:
"Girl, I don't mean to make you
unhappy. You'll have to get used to
me. I am awfully sorry for you, and
didn't I come on the next train only
to find u snoozing away too sleepy
even to wake up when I kisjedyou?"
"Dearest, I wanted awfully to go
and meet you. but I had not slept a
moment the night before on the train
and I had been with mother all day.
I think Dr .Hannaford gave me a
sleeping potion when he said he was
only giving me something to quiet my
nerves. Honestly, it was a physical im
possibility for me to keep awake."
"All right, dear, we won't quarrel
about it any more. This is a beautiful
old place you have here. Does it be
long to you mother?"
"I don't know exactly whether the
place Is mother's or not, John. But It
is surely a beautiful home, and I love
It very dearly. I was not only born
here, but my father was also, and his
forebears five generations back."
John looked about the bed ro(Tm

asked, looking Into my little sitting

mother has always' feaifr that w-hen l
married I might have, .the, furniture in

"Gee, that's fine! We'll rearrange
that entire suite of ours at the house."
Of course I couldn't expect that
John would be very much concerned
over the death of a man whom he had
never seen, but neither then nor since
could I bacome accustomed to John's
utter callousness and cold blooded in
attention to anything, either Joy or
sorrow, with which he wasn't for the
moment concerned. - 1
This characteristic -,of my husband
has hurt me more than any other
since our marriage.

The law requires you to dim your lights. You must obey the law but
if you have a good spotlight and use it right you can still see the road. The
Silver Beam Spotlight is the one you should buy. It gives a penetrating. light
that lights up your path. The exceptional feature about this light is that it
can easily be removed and used as a trouble light even to see the spare tire
at the rear of the car. It also can be removed to prevent any one taking it. A
