Everv American has thrilled with pride at the cross
ing of the Atlantic by an aircraft absolutely an American
product and handled by an all-American crew. This is
recognized as more than a personal triumph for the fliers
and builders of that craft. It is even more than a triumph
for the American navy, which organized and managed
the enterprise and gave it such helpful support as no pri
vate agency could possibly have given. It is a national
triumph, the achievement of 100,000,000 people concen
trating on something and backing it with all their re
sources of money, brains and machinery.
It is the first time that the United States government
ltas gone into any undertaking comparable with this.
And it should not be the last.
The big war has got the Americans into the habit of
working together for a common purpose. The trans
Atlantic flight shows what can be accomplished in peace
time by a similar spirit and purpose, at a cost which,
though beyond a private purse, is insignificant when com
pared with war costs. If the expense oT that expedition
19 $1,000,000, as somebody has estimated, that is about
one cent apiece for every American. Who would 'not give
another cent for another such thrill? v
The world is full of big things to' do, some of which
require big sums of money, but most of which merely re
quire brains, courage and co-operation. Let Uncle, Sam
keep on doing them.
MODIFYING ARMY SENTENCES.
If there remained any doubt as to the undue severity
of military sentences imposed on American soldiers dur
ing the war, it has been removed by the recent action of
thp Army Clemency Hoard. In two months that body has
reviewed 2,R57 cases, totally remitting punishment in 018
and making total or partial remission of 91 per cent of
all the cases considered. The average sentences were, re
duced from seven years and six months to one year and
eight monthsa reduction of nearly 80 per cent.
This record is tacit confession that about one-third 'J?" tpamBt decided t0 fciiow
of the men sentenced to terms of imprisonment by courts- trmmo
martial ought never to have been sentenced at all, and. """" .

seats, as well as from communication with the interior t
of the state. They have worked long and faithfully to
develop that region and deserve some consideration from
the people of other more fortunately situated parts of
the state. Besides this highway should cause much de
velopment in those coast counties, providing homes for
many new settlers and materially increasing the total
value of our taxable property, why we are especially
glad that Salem and Marion county has cast a good vote
for this project is because it refutes the charge that our
people are extremely narrow and self-centered and op
pose everything that costs a dollar, if the money is spent
outside or the capital city or Marion county. Our people
have in this instance shown their appreciation of the
needs of a part of the state in which they are not directly
interested and in doing so will stand higher in the es
teem of the people of Oregon.
Von Hindenburg has applied for a permit to become
a resident citizen of Switzerland. The Swiss are much
embarrassed at the proposal and hesitate to consent. They
don't quite relish having the Hindenburg line perman
ently established in their country.
The people apparently do not want a lieutenant gov
ernor, probably thinking of the experience they have had
with some governors in the past and not waning to annex
more troubles by creating a vice-governor. ' v ? :
