not do much good unless it Is actu

he can take care of more land and
raise more and better crops in a sea

j THE PRESIDENT
5 There is naturally a great deal of
concern about the condition of Presi-!
i dent Wilson. The health of a man
I occupying so great a position is,
I quite aside from alt personal inter-
l est, of Importance to the whole na-
; tion In a thousand ways. At this
time, too, because of the internation-
i al position the president has occu-
pied, it is of unusual importance to
ail the rest of the world.
! There is probably more concern
j than there need be about the matter
because of the mystery that has been
j made of it. The motives of the
president's physicians and of his
family and close associates are
doubtless of the best. They do not
want to cause any undue alarm; and
. so, while hoping for the best, they
say as little as 'possible, lest it be
misconstrued. But the trouble 'is that
their silence has been misconstrued.
There is little to gain by suppres
. el on .of the full facts. If there is s
good prospect of the president re
. "covering and resuming his duties
nrlthin any reasonable length of time,
the public ought to know It for the
reassuring effect It will have on pol
itics, business and other activities.
If the ailment Is of such a nature as

capacity for the rest of his term of
office, then particularly the tact
should be announced, in order that
proper measures may be taken to
carry on the heavy and responsible
work of the executive department.
Such practical considerations; 'i
need hardly be added, are not at at!
incompatible with te sincere sym
pathy felt with the president anl
his family hy the whola nation.
