LEAGUE DEADLOCK TIGHTENS.
SENATOR LODGE has informed the democratic sen
ators who have been seeking a compromise with the
republicans upon peace treaty reservations to secure a
sneedv ratification, that no change in the reservations af-
' fecting Article 10 of the League of Nations covenant will
f 1 A 1 1 i 1 1?

I The original treaty text
Original Tctt Ixxlgc Reservation
Article 10 The members of the The United States assumes no ohli
League undertake to respect and pre- g(ltion to preserve the territorial in
gorve as against Internal aggression, tegrlty or political Independence of
th.i territorial li.territy and existing any olher country or to Interfere with
political Independence of 11 members controversies between Nations wheth
of the League. In case of any such ag- er niemb -rs of the League or not un
gresslon, the council shall advise up- ter provision of Article 10, or to em
ail the means by which this obligation piov the military or naval forces of
shall be fulfilled. the United States under any article of
the treaty for any purpose, unless in
any particular case tin congress,
which under the constitution has sole
power to declare war or authorize the
employment of the military or naval
forces of the United States shall by
act-or Joint resolution so provide.
This reservation effectually kills participation in the
League of Nations as far as the United States is concern
ed, for joint responsibility to maintain peace and preserve
the integrity of the liberated nations is evaded. Briefly,
the senate wanted the United States to share in the ben
efits of the league but not in the responsibilities. The lat
ter part of the reservation is superfluous for no treaty
can change the constitutional right of congress to declare
A league of nations to preserve world peace in which
the members of the league decline to interfere with con
troversies between nations to prevent conflict and enforce
peace becomes a farce. This reservation destroys the prin
ciple upon which the league was organized, and hence
would not be acceptable to the president who has asserted
that he will only accept reservations which do not destroy
the spirit of the instrument.
Lodge's object from the first, expressed in his "round
robin" of a year ago, was to kill a league of nations. We
have in consequence a European league, which lacking the
American leaven of democracy, means the perpetuation of
the old principle of national
at the expense of the wear.
ica secures peace but not an
to secure world peace.
If ihe deadlock continues, as seems probable, it is
likely that the League of Nations will become the issue of
the presidential campaign, with some league opponent
like Lodge as the candidate of one party and some league
advocate, like Hoover, the candidate of the other.

THE lilTTTjE BKAK PETER
One day late in the summer Cuffy
u.. t,iar.viuii-vin?. And on his
,,, hi. dnnnat at the deep pool
where the hornets had chasted him.
He Btayed there tor a little wnne to
watch the speckled trout as tneir
bright sides flashed out of the depths
of the clear water. As Cuffy stood
on the big boulder and looked down,
h eoniit ai himself auite plainly, re
flected in the still surface of the water.
He waved a paw. And the little bear
in the brook waved his paw too. Of
course Cuffy knew that it was himself
he saw. But he pretended for a time
that it was some other little bear who
was playing with him. And he was
having lots of fun.
You see, Mr. Bear s family was im
only bear family for miles and miles
around. And Cuffy often wished he
had other little boy-bears to play with.
To be sure, he had his sister, Silkie.
But she was a girl, and younger than,
he was, besides. . '
Well! Cuffy danced a jig on the top
of the big boulder. And the little bear
down below danced ft Jig. too. And Cuf
fy waved his paw again at the little
bear In the water. And once more the
little bear in the water waved a paw at
him. It was great sport. And then.
Cuffy happened to look up.
Tapping Al The Door.
As if to contradict her, there came
a tapping at the door and it slowly
opened to admit one of the other
nurses, her arms laden with boxes
and baskets. Ii know my eyes bright
ened, for I thought: "John has i'e
membered that I am well enough now
to enjoy some of 1 the great out-of-doors."
Lying in my. bed I forgot that
it was winter mid that my flowers
must be hothouse flowers.
This morning the offering were
great dewy Malmaison roses, dozens
and dozens of them. Their spicy,
slightly musky fragrance was almost
"You must get my pink bed coat
and I'd like my hair tied with a pink
ribbon," I said joyously as the nurse
brought hie an envelope which I was
sure contained a little note from John.
I was glad she hud left the bed when
1 opened It for the flowers were not
from John at ull. Instead In Alice's
sprawiy fashionable hand were the
words: "Karl Shepard called me ,up
lute last night and said 'Alice iluir, 1
am afraid those violets are sightly
withered by this time. My favorite
flower is Malmuison rose. Someway
it reminds me of Kutherlne. f!o over
to Blank's and buy all that he has.'
I have done so. They're lovely, aren't
they? I'll be over soon to help you
enjoy them. Alice."
The letter was Just like her. and.
oh, how It appealed to me! Letter
writing is truly an art. If people
would just write down themselves and
their own thoughts without formality
receiving and writing letters would be
so much more enjoyable. As it was,
Alice's note almost took away the
sting of John's failure to send me any

"Alice sent them to me." I said, and
then immediately I was conscience
stricken. I felt I should have told him
that Alice sent them at the request of
Karl Shepard. But I did not want a
repetition of his surliness of yester

Tomorrow My Nurse's Story)
ARTHUR SCOTT BAILEY,
To his great surprise, there stood a
little bear on the other bank of tnj
'brook. rir,ht opposite. Cuffy was as
ItonisheJ. The other little bear and
the little bear In the brook looked as
much alike as two peas. Cuffy had
never known that he could see a pic
ture of nimself by looking anywhere
! except into water. It was very strange
'he thought. He waved a paw. And
the little bear on the other bank waved
his paw. Cuffy kicked up one of his
hind legs. And the other little bear
kicked up, too.
Cuffy was puzzled. Was it really
himself he was looking at? lie nodded
I his head. And the other little bear
! nodded his head.
I Then Cuffy tried something else. He
(stared very hard at the little bear op
posite him and called "Hello!"
i "Hello, yerself !" the other little bear
said. And then Cuffy knew that it was
!a real, live boy-bear over there, and
not just a reflection of himself. Cuffy
was so tteiighted that he jumped down
off the boulder and splashed through
the brook, he was in such a hurry to
get over there where the strange bear
"What's yer name?" the strange

"They all calls me Peto." He stuffed
his front paws into the pockets of his
ragged trousers. "Suy Cuff what was

"Playing!" Cuffy told him.
Pet gave a grunt. "That's no wai

way to tho bank. And sitting down, he

The most arbitrary city boss In tht

Armenia, to judge from an official re
port recently made by Major Stephen
Trowbridge, under Gen. Edmund H. H.
He I? a Turk named Beslm Bey, Until
tho Knar East Relief agents stopped

Armenians gucli forms of super-graft
as uiiKlit well make every other cor

other heiu'tlcss rulers, from Nero
down, seem sweet and gentle char

us all dishonest oflice-hoklers know,
It isn't tha Job that matters, but the
sugar-plums that go with It. Beslm
Bey plucked sugar-plums with both
hands, night and day.
Even Inspired city bosses have their
day. Beslm Bey'i came when the
Near East Relief agents found that no
thorough Armenian relief work could
be done In that city while such condi

DEATH RATE DROPS
WHEN RELIEF ARRIVES
Lives of thousands of Armenian
children already have been saved by
the Near East Relief taking over the
Armenian orphanages, according to de
tailed reports, which have just reached
the headquarters of that organization.
These Institutions had been run by the
Armenians since the beginning of the
war to care for the children whose
parents had been murdered by the
Turks. Because of lack of food,
clothing and medicine, the death rate
among the children In these Institu
tions averaged as high as twentj or
thirty a day in some cases. .
When Armenian funds became In-"
adequate the Near East Relief took
charge of the orphanage. Since that
time the death rate has been greatly
reduced. Given good food and care
the children are quickly returning to
normal physical and mental condition. 1
It is estimated by persons who have
made a survey of Armenia that 120,000
chlldrenwlll die during the next yenr
unless they are given food and care.
Near Enst Relief Is the only organi
zation now operating In Western Asia
and It Is making an appeal to save
these Christian children,
