EDWARD 8. VAN DYKE

A. G. Churchwood, temporary
night policeman In Grants Pass, and
secretary of the Josephine county
democratic central committee, is
somewhat peeved over the fact that
the Courier did not publish in full
Wilson's partisan appeal to the vot
ers to return a democratic congress.
As a consequence, Mr. Churchwood
has issued circulars containing the
appeal and has had them distributed.
The Courier Is not at present car
rying the full Associated Press ser
vice, hence the full statement of
Wilson was not published, although
the true substance of the president's
appeal to the voters was printed.
Temporary Policeman Churchwood
"The Rogue River Courier pub
lished such garbled portion of the
president's appeal as the publisher
thinks his readers should have."
Such a statement from the demo
cratic secretary was purposely twist
ed, or else it displays ignorance to
a marked degree on his part, as the
Courier printed the news as sent out
by the Associated Press the Courier
having absolutely nothing to do
with constructing the article in
question. Mr. Churchwood is not a
subscriber to the Courier, but the
fact that he closely reads the paper
is deeply appreciated.

THE "FLU" SITUATION
The order from the surgeon gen
eral of the United States that all
schools be closed and remain closed
until the present epidemic of Influ
enza is stamped out is no doubt
looked upon by some, as foolish. But
the order was no doubt sanctioned
by the administration end the war
department, and is mandatory.
Those in charge of the public health
are supposed to know more about
the influenza menace than does the
average citizen, therefore their
course is no doubt the proper one to
take, regardless of the fact that
Christian Scientists declare that
"the right attitude of the mind wards
off influenza," and who now ask
"has the world gone mad?"
The opinions expressed by For
eign Secretary Zimmerman to Am
bassador Morgenthau at the begin
ning of 1917 are interesting in the
light of present events, says the
Oregonian. They show that Germany
was encouraged to make war by the
devotion of Americans, particularly
of President Wilson, to pacifism
hence that a reputation for loving
peace aggravates danger of war. If
the United States had had a presi
dent who showed more zeal to mal
tain American rights than to keep
peace, the world might have remain
ed at peace.
