SAVING WHEAT SUBSIDY.
Trio orHfiVinl stimulation of wheat production foi
the present year may turn after all to have been a wise
policy. The nation nas Deen reconciieu to iwmg auuui, a
v.;m riniiaro nc n vpsnlt, nf the wheat guarantee to Amen-
can farmers. This has been accepted philosophically as
a war expense which could not be ioreseen. isut accru
ing to the statements made by Herbert Hoover, interna
tional food administrator, the government may not lose
anything on the wheat crop. For instead of a great
world surplus of wheat this year he foresees a possible
deficit again. ; , ,
The close of the war has not immediately increased
production. Several countries which naturally export
wheat, among them Russia, Bulgaria, India, Roumama and
Serbia, will have to import grain this year. Thus, if there
is freedom in the world market the price will rise. Ameri
can wheat, therefore, may actually be worth $2.26 a
bushel, or even more than that, in the open market.
It is too early yet to make more than a rough guess.
But from the present outlook, even if the planting of
spring wheatis as heavy as has been expected, and the
American crop beats all records, it will still be needed and
readily absorbed. - ; , ;
The net results to the farmers and consumers in this
country may be pretty nearly the same as if the price
were kept up by a big subsidy to farmers. Even so, the
public will find considerable satisfaction in the outlook,
because it will have a billion dollars less taxes to pay, and
will have the comfortable feeling that it is getting the
worth of its bread money. ;
Speaking in defense of the filibuster which marked
the closing days of congress, Senator Sherman remarked
that speech is not free in this country. In this case he was
emphatically correct, for speech -which accomplishes noth
' ing but to postpone legislation immediately necessary to
the welfare of a great country is not free. It is the most
costly thing we have, says the La Grande Observer.
. If the principle of self-determination were applied to
Ireland, it would be a safe prediction that Gabriel's horn
will blow before the question is finally settled.

The U. S. senate committee appointed to investigate
Bolshevik propaganda in this country has had placed be
fore it. a great mass of "literature" gathered by agents
of the department of justice. It ranges from well-bound
volumes purporting to be legitimate works of history, or
economics or politics down to cheap and crude pamphlets
and leaflets whose objectionable nature is apparent at a
The collection is described as "documentary evidence
of the indisputable spread of Bolshevik propaganda in
the United States by well-paid emissaries of Lenine and
Most of this reading matter is obtainable at so-called
socialist book stores in New York, Chicago and other
large cities. "It is evident that it is being scattered
broadcast over the country," says the government repre

ing sown among the credulous, the uninformed and the
Certainly the United States cannot afford to permit
.this sort of thing.
. Censorship is always dangerous and difficult busi
ness. The United States has always prided itself on its
"free press bv that term meaning freedom of publica
tion for pamphlets and books as well as newspapers and
magazines. . Any attempt to limit this treeaom must oe
made cautiously and wisely, lest stupid or over-zealous
officials do more harm than good. But some limitation
there must be. ' " . !s -
In normal times we might properly permit the free
circulation of any sort of reading matter, except the mor
allv indecent, as we did before the war. But in view of the
present world-wide danger from Bolshevism, this sort of
poison oecomes intolerable, especially wnen it is circulated
with deliberate purpose by alien interests-
Prompt steps should be taken against it by congress
and the department of justice. A certain amount of con
trol can be exercised through the postoffice. Beyond
that it may be necessary to place bookstores under super
vision, until such time as the peril shall have passed.
Joseph W. Bailey, who quit the United States senate
by request because his connection with the Standard Oil
payroll was exposed, has just renounced the democratic
party. His reasons are that the modern followers of
Thomas Jefferson are too prone to flirt vHth woman suf
frage and prohibition. Just where Joseph will land now
he does not state, but it is safe to say that none of the
existing political parties is preparing a warm welcome
into its ranks for him. His reputation is anything but

THE CALLING VOICE.
"Somewhere a voice is calling," I hear the plaintive
lay, when evening 'shades are falling, and dusk is dim
and gray; it's sung by youth and maiden, who lightly bear
their years, who are not heavy laden, and worn by toil
and tears. I see my daughter dolling herself ,in costly
frills; somewhere a voice is calling on me to pay the bills;
somewhere a voice is saying, "Your stand-offs gone to
seed; come hither and be paying the money that we need."
My folks are always falling for rugs and drug-gets nice;
somewhere a voice is calling on me to raise the price. I
sit and brood and ponder beneath my fig and vine, and long
to be up yonder where all the planets shine. For life is
sad and bitter, a long and weary road, and one who's not
a quitter must always bear a load. There is no tune for
stalling, no pause for rest or fun; somewhere a voice is
calling for mon and still more mon. The good sport bears
his burden, and hopes that when he dies he will receive rs
guerdon a free pass to the' skies. Where silver streams
are brawling by Eden's verdant hills, he'll hear no voices
calling on him to pay the bills.
