overwhelm Montenegro, while conditions in Albania are deplorable. Over
15,000 cases of typhus have been reported in Esthonia, with shortage of
food and clothing.
' "In the Ukraine, conditions are as bad as can be imagined, and the
situation growing worse daily. Pauperism becomes more intense. The
typhus victims number Into the hundreds of thousands. In Poland, there
are 250,000 cases of typhus and the greatest need is for food. In Galicia
whole districts are depopulated. In Armenia the distress and destitution
are beyond description."
Depreciated currency effectually blocks attempts to renew
commerce. These lands must pay 40 to 50 times the normal
cost for everything they buy, and they have little or nothing to
sell. They can have no hope unless they have the things from
without, which they need if they are going to produce. Neither
have they hope unless they have the means of transporting those
goods should they be received.
Mr. Davison suggests a plan to meet Europe's need
which consists of an appropriation, by congress of sum not to
exceed $500,000,000 for use in central and eastern Europe, to be
administered by a non-political commission of three Americans,
of the type of General Pershing, Herbert Hoover and ex-Secretary
Lane. This commission to make survey of conditions and
then act for the restoration of those countries under such con
ditions and upon such terms as the commission may itself de
cide, the money to be loaned on liberal terms, and the co-operation
of other countries be requested in the work.
America, which advanced ten billion dollars to her allies to
attain victory and peace, certainly ought to be able to make the
additional advance in order to realize the peace for which we
imve struggiea, conciuaes Mr. uavison "ior nothing is more
certain that until normal conditions are restored in Europe, there
can oe no peace.
Despite the fact that whatever action is taken should be
taken immediately, and that the "crisis is so acute that the sit
uation does not admit of delay," Mr. -Davison's appeal fell on
deaf ears in congress, mainly because President Wilson had made
a similar appeal. Congress, under the leadership of Lodee. re

other governments would cooperate and new life and hope ani
mate tne stricken peoples.
It would seem that the work of arousing American public
opinion to force action by congress is peculiarly the province of
tne cnurcn yet we imd no organized effort by the church to
make its influence felt. If the churches of America united for
the cause, and every pulpit echoed the demand, not even a
visionless congress would have adjourned to rjlav nolitics while
Christian civilization perished. Yet the church remains strange
ly silent and inactive in the midst of plenty as lethartric in its
'duty to humanity as congress itself.

A GLAD WORLD.
This world's so fine and dandy that life should be a grin ;
there's always sunshine handy for those who'd wade therein. As
cheerful as a colt is, I do my daily toil, there always is a poultice
for every human boil. I brood not lest disaster of life should ruin
make ; there is a mustard plaster for every "human ache. If life,
at any juncture, seems desolate and grim, and hope receives a
puncture, then run her on the rim; and laugh at Old Man Sorrow,
Don't let him come too near!
And if you poke him with a stick
He'll seize that too oh, dear!
Now, we'll admit'he swims quite well
And that he's slow ashore.
Don't ask us if he wears a shell
Until we tell you more.
Don't ask us if he's fond of fish
Nor seek to learn his age.
And kindly don't express a wish
To see him in a rage!
Don't ask us If his claws are strong
And if he has a tail.
