STRIKES SHOULD BE AVOIDED.
In these troublesome times strikes
should not occur. I t is had for both
employer and employe in times of
peace, but now, while our country is at
war, there should be no strikes. They
can be avoided only to the extent of
loyalty of the employer and employe.
The employer who holds the wage scale
down to its lowest ebb in order to make
big profits is as unprtriotic as the
striking employe.
With the number of places that are
now open to employment we see no
reason for a strike of labor. There is
no reason why a man at a job where
the wages are not satisfactory cannot
leave and get a position where the
wages and conditions suit him better.
There is no place on the program for a
strike.
SOAK 'EM LOUIE.
Members of congress are complaining
because Washington hotels and cafes
are robbing them. They charge that
they are required to pay $5.00 for a meal
that can be purchased in London for
$1.60. It hits them hardest where it
counts the most—in the pochetbook.
Bully! Soak ’em Louie! Pile it on

howl, to literally double up and shriek

HYSTERIA NOT PATRIOTISM.
There are those who would have us
believe that because the people of this
country are not ablaze with enthusiasm
and shouting their patriotism from the
housetops they are necessarily not in
sympathy with the war program. But
no gJeater mistake in judgment was
ever made.
The American people as a mass have
regretted the necessity for going to war.
We had hoped against hope that it could
be avoided. Even at this day there is
an undercurrent of hope that in some
way, consistent with honor, the dire
consequences of war as felt by the
European nations may be avoided.
But while this hope ii in the national
heart, there is also in that heart a grim,
deadly determination that certain ob
jects must tie attained, even though onr
sacrifice equal or exceed that of the
others.
Our people are slow to arouse, even
yet are only partially awake, but in the
great heart of the nation there is steadily
awakening that inherent loyalty to our
great ideals that has carried us
triumphantly through every crisis that
has ever confronted us. This feeling is
not built upon froth. It is not the re­
sult of hysteria. It is torn and bred in
us, and is as much a part of us as our
®yery life blood.
The attitude of the American people
today is that of facing a duty—a very
disagreable duty—but one of which
there can not be the faintest thought of
our evading or shirking. We are com­
ing to see before us a gigantic task, but
a task upon the accomplishment of
which depends all we have hoped for
