AN INTRICATE PROBLEM.
One of the most important things in the public mind
just now is the so-called "Russian dtuation." Properly
speaking there is no such thing. It is so varied, so com
plicated, widely separated that it can only be spoken
of in the plural. There is one situation at Archangel; an
other at Vladivostok; another at Petrograd and still an
other at Omsk. In the Caucasus is another, and still an
other in Ukraine, while along the Alanchurian border a
revolution separate from all the resi. is in progress. The
bolsheviki, so-called, government has its seat on board
a German warship fat Kronstadt, and throughout Russia
and Siberia are still other local governments of more or
less authority. It is with this multiplicity of factions that
the allies have to deal, and the problem is such that none
inow how safely to approach it. The Germans had their
chance to retain power in Russia proper at least, but
their insufferable arrogance has forever destroyed that
chance. No matter how much they may differ among
themselves as to what they should do to work out the sal
vation of their country, there is but little difference
among them in their enmity of the kniser and his minions.
.The Russian people enslaved for centuries, ignorant most
of them, suddenly given their freedom knew no more what
to do with it, or how to govern themselves than did the
black slaves freed in the south during the Civil war. They
have not yet learned, but amcuig the masses is an earnest
desire for liWrty, for the right to live at peace with the
world, for the ownership of the land they have so long
tilled for others, and an uninterrupted dream of a Kussian
nation strong and free, such as they have pictured the
United States to be. It is this desire for national unity
and strength deeply inrooted in the Russian mind that
makes the masses turn hone fully and trustingly us they
can, after their abuse by the Germans, toward the Unit
ed States. It is for this reason this country more than any
other should take the lead in trying to bring order out
of the chaos into which the great nation has been plunged.
Whatever policy pr policies may m adopted, the United
States is making no mistake in relying on kindness and
good treatment to weld the Russian people solidly.to them
and to the allies. To extend the helping hand, to provide
food and assist the wretched peasants in getting once
more on their feet is the task at present being under
taken. It is a huge undertaking, but it will bring results.
We have the problem of a people of nearly two hundred
millions, without a government, without leaders, no
guides, no lights for their path as they struggle through
the difficulties with which they are surrounded. If the
masses were educated, they could be dealt with much
more easily, but then if they weiv educated they would
not have found themselves in this condition. As it is the
Russian situations are probably better known to the pre
sident than to any other American, ;md he, if anyone, can
find the way to solve the intricate problem. lie may make
a mistake, for dealing with so many factions it is not pos
sible that all will be pleased, but this country can well place
iU reliance o tithe good sense and calm judgment of Pre
There are enough evergreen blackberries going to
waste west of the Cascade mountain? in this state to sup
ply half the United States if they could be gathered, The
trouble with this especially good berry is that it wears
a coat of bristling spikes that makes the picker feel the
need of a coat of mail to tickle it. If Luther Ilurbank
con do for the evergreens what he did for the cactus, he
"will make the picking of them more of a pleasure and less
of a punishment. He will also make available a magnifi
cent berry that under its present armament is rattier
: For an army that resorted to liquid fire and poison
ous gasses, and to bombing hospitals and torpedoing hos
pital and relief ships, the horror of Uie Germans at the
Americans using the sawed off shotgun as a weajmn
seems a trifle far-fetched.
Those, congressmen quibbling over the drafting of
young men of 18 and 19 are raising an unimportant issue.
The department has announced that the younger men
would not be used until the other ages had been exhaust
ed. As to those of 19 they-will be 20 and subject to draft
under the present law by the time they -will be wanted
to go to France, if they are so wanted. If they are draft
ed they will be drilled and prepared when the call is made,
that is alL Apparently the principal object of those op
posed to the drafting of the younger men is to cause de
lay. That is apparently one thing that many congress
men consider an integral portion of every bill passed.
However both houses are speeding up in a race to see
which can get the bill passed first, and the hurry to do
this will perhaps cause the passing of the amendment
cutting out the younger men. The majority of congress
men realize the necessity of haste, of the sending of an
overwhelming army to France so that with the opening of
another season the Americans will le able to bear down
all opposition simply by the preponderance of numbers.
Jt will cost more money than a slowt : plan might perhaps,
but the toll of lives will be less, and after all that is the
one overshadowing desiredatum. Money does not count
with the lives of our boys in the other scale.
The weather clerk deserves the thanks of all Oregon-
lans for the splendid variety of atmosphere furnished the
Old Boys in Blue. They have enjoyed' themselves the
more because they were not oppressed with heat, the
warmest thing they have run against on their trip being
the hospitality of the Portland people who have done
themselves proud and the state at large an honor. The
balance of us take off our hats to the citizens of the met
ropolis for rising to meet the occasion in every possible
way. They have made the visit of our guests one they
will remember always, and have given the state a warm
corner in the heart of every veteran.

Peaches command a high price and yet the markets
seem to be abundantly supplied wi them. Anyway just
now the display at the stores is such as is seldom seen in
Oregon, and never outside of it. California never grew
such magnificent specimens as are in the local market
now. Besides they can be eaten without overstepping
that two pounds a month sugar supply, for they furnish
their own sweetness.
, ' Ludendorff insists German soldiers 'be careful of
their lives. He does not want them killed now, because
he may need them for cannon fodder later. He wants
them saved for future slaughter in order to keep the mil
itarists in power that much the longer.

ii Rippling Rhymes
by Watt Mason
I hope this country of the free will never know effi
ciency, as Germans understand it; for it has made its
sponsors' name a thing of hissing and of shame twas
surely Jonah planned it. Efficiency that doesn't heed the
treaty or the written deed, the solemn pledge and promise,
may be a great and useful thing as viewed by oil anoint
ed king, but I'm a doubting Thomas. And this efficiency
that made of f rightfulness a ghastly trade, and rioted in
fury, may be a stately thing and wise as viewed by Kron
prinz Friedrich's eyes, but I am from Missouri. Efficien
cy that's built on lies that tries to blind a people's eyes
with cooked up fact and fable, may suit the bonehead
Teuton race, but as for me, you'll have to place the blue
prints on the table. Efficiency that boasts of power and
falls down at the 'leventh hour in every big endeavor,
may please old Hindenburg and those who hypnotize our
foolish foes, but it would suit me never. Efficiency that
has no soul has put the Prussian in the hole, has made
him banned and hated, until; we hear the cry of men.
