ROOSEVELT ON THE LEAGUE.
There has been considerable speculation of late as to
what position Theodore Roosevelt would have taken with
regard to the peace treaty, and particularly the League
of Nations covenant, if he were living today.
It is impossible, naturally, for any living man to say
precisely what he would have thought of the document as
it is drawn. As to his views on the main principles in
volved, there does not seem to be any occasion for doubt.
Mr. Roosevelt had written a great deal in favor of a
world federation before the war. In October, 191-1, three
months after the war broke out, he wrote an article Cor the
New York Times which includes these passages:
' "The one permanent move for obtaining peace which
has been suggested with any reasonable chance of attain
ing1 its obiect is bv an agreement among the great powers,
in which each should pledge itself not only to abide by the
decisions of a common tribunal, but to back with force the
decision of the common tribunal."
"The nations (members of the league) should agree to
certain rights which should not be questioned, such as ter
ritorial intergity, their rights to deal with their own do
mestic affairs, and such matters as whom they should
or should not admit to residence and citizenship within
their own borders."
Recommending, as part of the League organization,
"An Amplified Hague Court," he maintained that member
nations, "should agree not only to abide, each of them, by
ihe decision of the court, but all of them to unite with their
military forces to enforce the decree of the court as
against any recalcitant member. Under these circum
stances it would be possible to agree on a limitations
which would be real and effective.
As for the results which might reasonably be expect
ed for such a League:
"It would be impossible to fay that such an agreement
would at once and permanently bring universal peace, but
it would certainly mark an important advance. It would

Sometimes things seem all disjointed, in this weary
path we tread; we are galled and disappointed, and we
wish that we were dead. And it is a foolish habit, letting
briny teardrops start: man should never le a rabbit; he
should have a lion heart. If the lion heart is lacking, he
can Ptill pretend it's there, and his burden blithely pack
ing, show no symptoms of despair. I am prone to vain
repining, when I strike a vein of grief; it's my nature to
be whining, and to paw around and beef; but by long and
earnest practice I've acquired a cheerful front, and 1 chor
tle when, the fact is, tears would seem the proper stunt.
Iet the tinhorn griefs assemble, they will think I'm not
afraid; though my rabbit heart may tremble, I'll pretend
I'm undismayed. And the bluff will work, I'll bet you ; and
'twill work as well for you; don't let worry scare or fret
you ; face the beast, and mutter "Shoo !" Nerve's a thing
that some inherit, easily all ills they've dared; but we
show a greater merit who pretend we are not scared.

7-foot strip of wood was required to make each blade.
It means much cutting, trimming and testing before a
blade is perfected which will stand the terrific rates of
Much more wood is also required in airplane con
struction. Nothing has been found to take its place, nor is
there likely to be, according to experts.
These ships are to be made by the million. They will
be used all over the world. There is sure to be a big
drain upon forest resources.
The European lumber market is scanty: large forest
areas were destroyed in the war. It is largely from the
United States that the supply will have to come. Already
the conservation cranks are excited and are demanding
a new national forest policy which will conserve our tim
ber resources. Anyway it gives premise of a large and
increasing demand for lumber and that is a condition

The trade unionist Bolsheviks are modest. They
only ask for a third interest in the railroads they are op
erating. But if this was granted, in ninety days they
would strike for another third interest and then demand
full control and ownership on pain of revolt. This is
the propaganda that is being preached in every labor
union hall the Russian form of government which turns
ihe nation, it's industries, wealth and government over to
Ihe workigman, barring all other classes from participa
tion. In this railroad proposition the leaders show their
hand for the first time in this country, except for sporadic
outbreaks like that which occurred in Seattle and several
Canadian cities. What are the rest of the people going to
do about it? Are they going to allow the revolutionarv h""0 of us eifih "" ""in gooJ ' i'"ssion that is wrong.
