It seems that by the time this paper goes to press a
formal declaration of war with Germany will have been
made. Whether the paper declaration be made or not,
the state of war actually exists, and no retreat from our
position can now be made. It is not to be thought that
Germany will take water. Then we are at last thorough­
ly committed as one o f the belligerents against Germany.
While perhaps comparatively few of our people have
thought the whole matter out to the conclusion that we
are now practically one of “ the allies,” and that we can
by no means carry on a little war o f our own against
Germany, without mixing into the main scrap, yet the
sooner we reach that realization the better.
Uncle Sam
must now do his part with the rest, “ without mental res­
ervation or purpose of evasion.” He can’t sit back and
simply defend himself against invasion by Germany. The
war upon which he has entered is being fought in Europe,
and he must go to Europe to take part with the rest. The
war spirit among the young men who will be called upon
to actually lay down their lives has not, so far, become
very fierce, but it is warming up rapidly, and if the Presi­
dent wants men all he will have to do will be to call for
them. There will be no such picnic spirit as prevailed
among the recruits for the Spanish war, for all realize
that this war is no picnic; but the boys will come to the
colors when they are needed.
The Herald has run up, this week, against the old
gag, “ Don’t say anything about it in the paper.” Every
small town newspaper has this to contend with, and that
is one reason who so many o f them publish so little local
news beyond the fact that “ Grandma So-and-So has cele­
brated her umptieth birth,” and items o f that sort.
small town resident seems to have a mighty fear of pub­
licity—or it might better be said, “ of truthful publicity.”
He seems willing enough that a story affecting him should
be passed from mouth to mouth, with whatever additions
and distortions the imagination o f the narrator may see
fit to add; but let the reporter of the local paper go to
him for the real facts, and the first cry is:
“ Oh, don’t
say anything about it in the paper.” And in matters af­
fecting the public interests the same request is often
made, when there is no possible rational argument for en­
deavoring to conceal the facts from the public. It was
that sort of a deal against which the Herald ran up this
week, and the matter was one in which the people of this
school district take, and should take, the livliest interest.
If there is anything that the patrons of the school are in­
terested in it is the personnel of the teachers; if there is
anything that they have a right to know it is of any ex­
tensive changes in the teaching force. Yet a formal re­
quest came to the Herald “ not to say anything about” the
election of teachers for the next year, which took place at
the last meeting of the Board. The fear was expressed
that some people would make protests and cause trouble
for the board members if they were informed of the
changes that had been made, and this seemed to be con­
sidered a good argument against the publication of the
facts. Try as we will, we can not bring ourselves to take
that view of the ethics of the matter, nor that view of
the proper way “ to run a newspaper.” Therefore the
election news is given in this issue.
