SILENCE THE HYMN OF HATE
On his way home from negotiating the peace treaty at
Versailles, President Wilson uttered the following words, which
prove that his clear vision foresaw the shadow that was falling
across his life and the bitter disappointment in store for the
world: . ' -.
It is to America that the whole world turns today, not only with its
wrongs, but with its hopes and grievances. The hungry expect us to
feed them, the roofless look to us for shelter, the sick of heart and body
depend upon us for cure. All of these expectations have In them the quality
df terrible urgency. There must be no delay.
It has been so always. People will endure their tyrants for years, but
they tear their deliverers to pieces If a millennium is not created immedi
ately. Yet you know and I know, that these ancient wrongs, these present
unhappinesses, are not to be remedied in a day or with a wave of the hand.
What I seem to see with all my heart I hope that I am wrong is a
tragedy of disappointment.
It would seem now that President Wilson's work is virtually
done, now that he is no lontrer a factor in nolitics, that some of
! the respect due his position should be shown by his political
opponents, and that the ferocious personal and political attacks
upon him should cease. For almost a year he has been fighting
for life, stricken and helpless on a bed of pain and throughout
his illness, his enemies -have chanted the hymn of hate and
treated him with unexampled brutality yet he has borne his
suffering without complaint.
Mr. Wilson is a casualty of the great war. He lost his health
in fighting the battle for an enduring peace. He is one of the
great figures of the world, as Candidate Harding, boasting of his
own mediocrity, sneenngly terms, a "superman," but a lonelv
tragic figure, and a sense of decency demands he be given fair
play during the remainder of his term as chief magistrate.

Elizabeth Moreland just looked at
me and said nothing .as she got out
of the car.
I walked into the lobby with my
neaa nign. it was first blood for me
in this battle which I had determined
to wage for my own. I would use all
of Elizabeth Moreland's tactics that
she had been using with me. I would
put her in the wrong with John. I
knew that I had done so in this mat
ter of the hotel, for with woman's in-J
tution I knew in the telegram which!
John had sent her, he had told her
that I was coming home and that

and scenting a battle between two
women, had run away.

Tomorrow Flirting with John -
ter intended to urge him once more
to cut his way through the wood
and to freedom.
Soon Buster had his chance. Again
he crowded close to the glass door of
the Carpenter's cage. And then John
nie Green's sharp eyes spied him.
"There's one!" said Johnnie Green
to one of the twins. And at that the
eager youngster pounced quickly on
Buster, picked him up gingerly, and
popped him quickly into a prison ex
actly like ' the one that held the
"He didn't sting me!" cried Bus
ter's captor proudly, while Johnnie
Green stared at him In astonishment

some disappointment, too.
vw .Tnhnnie knew a good many
things about the field and forest folk
nu..n vnilev. He knew that
.h nnrnenter (or Whitefaces,
tv,i culled him) couldn't sting
anybody. But he had always sup
posed that all bumblebees stung
fiercely. And that was where he
was mistaken. It was true that Bus
ter's mother, the Queen, could sting
when she wanted to. And all those
hot-tempered workers who lived with
her had stings Just as hot as their
tempers. But Buster and his brothers
(for he had brothers) were not armed
with such weapons.
Naturally, the other twin was now
more eager than ever to capture a
bumblebee of his own. And since
Johnnie did not want to disappoint a
guest he soon suggested that they go
over to the clover patch.
"There's a lot. of bumblebees over
there alwavs." said Johnnie Green
So Buster had a free ride to the
clover field; for his twin Insisted on
taking his new pet right along with
"Besides, I may want to catch
some more like him," he explained.
Looking" out through the glass sides
of his prison, which his captor held
tightly in one hand, Buster Bumble
bee saw many of his mother's work
ers hovering about the clover-tops,
gathering nectar for the honey-comb
The twins saw the workers, too.
They were delighted. And so was

moment Buster was hurrying away
across the clover field.
When he was stung by the worker

dropped the honey box. And it had
fallen squarely upon a rock and
broken. ", '
If Buster had not been In such
haste to escape he would have heard
still another shout. For the news

next day that Johnnie Green remem

Subsequent roll calls up to the
ninth showed few changes. Then came
the first big break when New York
swung 90 votes from Harmon to
Clark. On this ballot, the tenth, Clark
reached the high water mark of Bo 6
a clear majority, but 170 votes
short of the necessary two thirds to
nominate. On 13 ballots the follow
ing day, Wilson gained 51 and Clark
lost 90. When the convention ad
journed over Sunday, the Wilson
forces were confident and the Clark
forces were particularly bitter against
Bryan for his anti-Clark posture. j
At the end of the forty second bal
lot O nthe following Monday, the con
vention was still dead locked, with
494 for Wilson and 430 for Clark. On
the forty third ballot, Illinois and
West Virginia swung to Wilson. T.i
the forty fourth,- Colorado followed
suit. Before the'forty sixth ballot was
under way, Senator Bankhead of Al
abama took the platform and PBfeas
ed the Underwood delegates, with the
result that Alabama, wjilch had start
ed every roll call with 24 votes for
Underwood, changed to Wilson. Sen
ator Stone of Missouri took the stage
and released all delegates who had
been pledged to Clark. State after
state then followed Alabama's exam
ple, and Governor Wilson was nomi
nated with 990 votes to 84 for Clark
and 12 for Harmon.
A tired but finally- united conven
tion quickly completed the ticket by
nominating Governor Marshall of In

of North Carolina) for vice president
