THE first fruits of Senator Lodge's action in blocking
the peace treaty is seen in Germany's refusal to sign
the protocal providing for the carrying out of the peace
terms as accepted, which may force allied armies to in
vade Germany to compe1 that nation to live up to its agree
ment. Germany only respects force and is entirely lack
ing in sense of morality.: - :- ' -Y. .. Y- -
- The refusal of America to ratify peace has awaken
ed hopes in Germany of a revival of militarism. Hinden-
burg is showered; with flowers and predict j eventual Ger-'

to the senate deadlock. '
Noske, German minister of defense operfly advocates
a renewal of -warfare and declares that if the United
States does not come into the Jpague. Germany will not,
and hopes for an al'iance of , Germany with America
against our alliesand there are many of our senators
who favor the same program.
Prompt ratification of the peace treaty by the senate
is the only hope for averting another war in the immed

Europe, the only method whereby foreign trade can be
paced upon a substantial br sis. Only by the union of her
enemies can Germany be made to fulfill agreements, onlv

V The diversion of humrn energy from the supplv of
the things- mankind needs to pure destruction compelled
a resort to borrowing, to paper money and to high tax
ation, and. this, coupled with a low production and the
necessary increased demand which goes with an unsettled
state of society, has altered and upset all values. Hence
umxersrl unrest. Worst of all, this upsetting of values im
pedes resort to the only remedy for the after-effects of
warnamely, increased production. We cannot get pro
perly to work largely because our standard of values has
so greatly altered. Men do not know how they stand or
where they are economically. Therefore they fear to en
gage in that speeuiation,that looking to .the' trade of the
future, which is as essential to plenty and prosperity as is
peace. - -
. Now that high wages and high prices have been es
tablished, it is very doubtful whether we shall be any bet
ter off for another violent reduction of prices, even
though that would theoretically be a change for the bet
ter. It may be laid down indeed that almost any system
or almost any standard of prices is a good one as long as
we can maintain it and let things adjust themselves to it.
The danger is not so much in the high figures as in the
fluctuations which make looking ahead in business impos
sible, or at the very best a violent gamble. Steadiness in
values is what we need as the.pathway to that-increased
production which alone can remedy the material evils of
