HERLIN, June 28. (By Mail.)
Recognition of Russia was coun
selled here today by Mrs. Philip
Snowden of the British Labor
Mission to Russia, as tho safest
means of heading Russia off from
development into an "Imperialis
tic, capitalistic and militaristic
nation with a Napoleon at Its head,
threatened all Europe."
Her plea was not based on pro
bolshevism, for the commission
has not come out as "pros." Bol
shevism, she declared, had failed
to live up to its own standards.
rnd as for its extension to other property of Mr. Hill's,
lands, Mrs. Snowden regarded i Will Add tSory
that as out of the question. i Mr. Hill has made plans for the

As for the condition of women
in Russia, Airs. Snowden declared
"They are on an a,80llteiy
equal footing with men. They re
ceive the same pay for the same
work, have equal suffrage, and
are everywhere treated at men's
equals. The Industrial situation
is such that all women must work.
"As for the children, I cun say
that there is a strong effort to
upbuild the growing generation.
The former nobles' estates are
converted into fresh air homes for
groups of children, and insofar as
possible, the children are given
prelerential food treatment."
Mrs. Snowden regards the pres
ent Russian system as despotism,
just as despotic as czarism
though on quite opposite lines.
But she believes, as does Dr. Guest
of the commission, that a certain
amount of capitalism wii be in

Sweet Dream of
Many Years Ago
. A farmer raised a deuce of a
row in a local grocery store the
other day when told that sugar
was selling at 25: a pound. He
ranted and roared about "small
town profiteers," claiming that
sugar was selling in Portland at
20 pounds for a dollar. j
The incredulous grocer urged!
the farmer to "prove it." j
The farmer produced a copy of;

read: "Sugar is selling in Port-!
