TO AMERICAN TRADE
Conditions Have Changed Since
Washington' Advice About
Whether the League of Nations
will ever InTlte America to send an
army to Flume or somewhere else
and help to eject Italians, or Jugo
Slavs or Homebody else, this we
know not. And, recognlilug that we
don't know, lot us be mindful that
there are many other kinks about the
league whose twists are a little be
wildering to us.
Peace is supremely desirable. Any
kind of a league that makes any kind
of a stab at preserving peace In any
kind of honorable way deserves our
whole-hearted endorsement. But don't
let us fool ourselves. Santa Clans
will not come every day. We must
not promise ourselves that everything
we want will happen automatically
after a few delegates have signed
their names. Half the nations of
Europe seem to want war rather than
peace Just now. They are likely to
nurse these bellicose enthusiasms for
some time. If they are all members
of the same league as ourselves, and
i hey tell us to get In on a few of their
wars because we are brother peace
leaguers, we may find the final differ
ent from the overture. But peace Is
like every good thing; it is worth all
the effort spent In the attainment.
Hhetorlctans are constantly remind
ing us of what George Washington
said about entangling alliances. He
urged this country to keep aloof from
the problems with which European
politics were interwoven. He said
It many years ago, when few towns In
America were as large as Burns.
As a rule we associate Washington
with Fourth of July celebration
iili commencement exercises, and
mellifluous oratory. We think of
brass bands and streaming banners.
At the mention of his name we visual
ize marble statues perpetuating bis
image, ami oil paintings preserving
his features and the cut ofhls uni
form. We rarely conceive him as being
Intensely human, and abundantly en
dowed with horse sense. We have
hung so many frills upon him that In
these encumbering vestments !i"
!"5ras to voice pontifical utterance,
So that his remark about eiilaiiglini;
elllances has established a religion,
very much as certain texts in the
Epistles have established the tenets
of conflicting denominations.
Washington was no hlerarch. H
was a supremely practical American,
uud took things as he found thern. A
voyag to Europe took many weeks,
and his country was In no way de
pendent on foreign trade. European
contemporary history was a series of
dynastic wars, and America had noth
ing to gain and everything to lose by
lose association with the Old World.
Washington's precepts were uttered
for the guidance of the newly born
republic, Just as the Mosaic Law ap
plied to Israel of the Old Covenant.
Today these conditions are revers
ed. Europe Is distant only a five
days trip. European wars today are
cat Avnaatte; they are largely con-
ernsd with arguments between class
es laborers, artificers, bourgeoisie,
If Europe becomes a dangerous
place for Americaus it becomes a dau-
sroaa place for American goods
raw materials and manufactures. We
shall be restricted to market on tit It,

The Flow of Meat
Two-thirds of the live stock in the
United States has to be raised in
One-half of the consumers of meat
live in the East.
In other words, most of the live
stock is one or two thousand miles
distant from most of the people who
need it in the form of food.
Fifty years ago, when live stock was
raised close to every consuming cen
ter, the country butcher could handle
the job after a fashion.
But the job got too big.
Now millions of animals have to be
moved hundreds of miles to millions of
people. Somewhere on the way they
have to be turned into meat.
The packers solved the problem.
They set up plants where the "live
haul" and the "meat haul" were in
the right balance. They built up
distributing systems refrigerator cars,
refrigerating plants, branch houses.
They saved time, money and meat
everywhere. The stockraiser bene
fited in better markets and higher
prices; the consumer, in better meat
and lower prices.
As the country prew, the packers
h?.d to grow, or break down. Because
