For the first time in my life I told
my mother a lie.

you weren't home Someway I had a
feeling that our income was about
six hundred dollars a month. I don't
know why I have this impression be
cause your father never discussed it
with me but he never failed to give
me the allowance the first day of
every month except this month when
he was so ill.
"He seemed rather worried at times,
lately," mother continued, "and I
think I should have asked him about
things, but my dear, he was always

FROM 110 class of workers is so much demanded as from
school teachers. They are in fact the foster parents
of the children. Into theirhands are committed the minds
and bodies of the little ones in the formative years of their
lives, and upon them depend to a large extent the future
of the nation.
Teachers watch over and care for children as though
they were their own. They drill and train them for busi
ness and for citizenship, instruct them in manners and
morals and do for them things the parents have not time
to do. They perform their work willingly, conseientiouusly
and unselfishly. -
What do we do for teachers in return? We pay
them less than unskilled laborless than any class of
labor. Other workers are well paid. Other classes have
prospered. But the guardians of American childhood are
paid less than the janitors of the buildings they serve the

Cost of living has advanced over 100 per cent in the

- By Hugh llaillio
Washington, Dec. 4. The attitude
of the administration today with re
gard to the peace treaty is that of
Believing that a great popular de
mand for ratification will come from
the country within a few weeks, Pres-t
ident Wilson is keeping "hands off"
the present situation, waiting for this
urge to materialize, according to num
The president' refrained from di
rectly mentioning the treaty in, his
message to congress, it is believed,
with ihe idea that further argumenf
was useless. '
Need to be Kvldont
The need for it, friends of the ad
ministration predict, will steadily be
come more apparent. They are look
ing for events to convince the people
that the treaty is desirable and that
no other means of brining about of
ficial peace will do. The president's
silence, they assert, does not mean
that he has given up the fight or that
he s any less interested in ratifica
tion than when he toured the coun
try appealing for it. That-he is "wrap
ped up in the treaty" was the expres
sion used by some of his advisers In
describing the situation.
Third Term Cheers
Kecommendation of Wilson for B
third term by the state convention at j
Pierre, S. I)., was interpreted by the
president's supporters as endorsement
of the treaty and as an answer to the
arguments of those who claim the
pact is so dead the democrats will
not want to exhume it and meke ,it
an issue in . 192 0.
Opponents of the trenty openly
scoff at the idea that the nation will
demand ratification. They said that
if any wave of popular sentiment for
it were forthcoming it would have
been apparent early in October, just
after Wilson's tour. Many congress
men returning to Washington after
talking to their constituents say there
is practically no interest in the treaty
and that the people are rapidly for
getting it in devoting their attention
to the coal shortage and other press
ing domestic problems.
