of money, hut I'd rather leave uiy
money hi my hoy than to hliu."

Since the German fleet will not
come out, wc nre inclined to ogree
with Winston Churchill that it'
about time for the vastly suicrior
allied fleet to go in.
Since nothing seems to have been
done about it. it may U well to
proclaim again that Can-am has
offered to mediate.
While there have Iwn time in
the past when we thought that Old
Man Oregon showed signs of ossifi
cation, he ha now atoned for ev

the Red I'rasn.
Whenever the Kainer ami the
down Prince get rcatly to demon
strate personally that the German
empire is worth dying for, the
world will applaud the (sacrifice.
However uncouth and crude,
these line from the Hulltlogger are
not without significance: "Some
gave little, some gave much; and
others gave to beat the Dutch."
With duo resect to the numerous
prophets who fear that the war has
only begun, our own prediction is
that Uncle Sam will just about get
his musket loaded in time to be in
at the death.
With Germany's new crop retri

The I-cader is in receipt of the
first number of Oregon Kxehangea.

published by the School of Journal
ism at the Tnivemity of Oregon.
It is attractively gotten up. ami is
of interest to the fraternity from
cover to cover. Hie doings of news
paper men - of considerable import
ance to themselves are faithfully
chronicled in this publication, which
will keep the press boys informed
as to each other's whereabout and
activities. However, wc are not so
enthusiastic over the first number
as we would have been had it con
tained a boost for Kernel Wood and
a knock for Kernel loyd. Herein
is subject matter of vital import
ance that its young editors should
not neglect.
Other nations ot war have al
ready raised ami sient sixty-six
billions of dollars, so that Uncle
Sam's two billions make almut as
much real noise as a copier cent
in a church plate.
American troops ore landing in
France and we trust they will wk.ii

Oregon wool Is selling as high as
721 cents, and we find ourselves ex

Republican Russia asserts that
she is wililng to fight, but what
her allies want is a practical dem
onstration. German lunatics are said to have
been enlisted in Hindenburg's army,
but resulU proved that unlike their
compatriots they haven't been crazy
enough to fight for a wrong cause.
Henry Ford having subscribed for
five million dollars' worth of Lib
erty bonds, wc want to Bay right
now that if we ever invest in a car
it will be a "tin Lizzie."
General Brussiloff would clinch
his hold on fame by breaking sim
ultaneously into the German lines
and the press dispatches.
Iron crosses have become almost
as common in Germany as tobacco
tags, but possess the disadvantage
of being indigestible.

Washington dispatches, will be giv
