But, why not? Even such material may be endowed
with special fitness in time, when usage has sanctioned
them. Surely ships were not always and everywhere
christened with champagne. New times, new customs.
There must be innovations, or the world would grow stale,
and why not use, in such matters, some product having a
distinct and demonstrable relation to the state or city
that is honored in naming of the vessel?
Grape juice unfermented, of course, might be used
for California, cider for New York state, buttermilk for
Illinois, loganberry juice for Oregon, clam juice, perhaps, L
for Massachusetts; and so on down the list with gasoline!

It is to be accomplished through the agency of the
federal census due next year. And if Senator France's
plan, already endorsed by the senate, is carried out, it
will certainly be a memorable census, painful but instruc
tive to everybody concerned.
It is to be an elaborate survey of the man-power,
woman-power and child-power of the nation, available
hereafter for the purposes of industry, public health,
military organization, etc., to a degree far beyond any
thing possible under the old census, methods. Senator
France says: , ,
''If we are to abolish illiteracy, preventable injuries
and diseases, unemployment and child labor, with all of
their attendant ills we must know their extent and the
agencies at hand for combatting them."
The census legislation therefore calls for a card cata
. logue recording the main facts about every individual's
life history his birth, education health, employment,
etc. and making provision for keping that record up-to-date.
This will be an important step in the progressive or
ganization of the American people. Its usefulness is be
yond. It should lead to greater national unity and effi
ciency and an elimination of many evils which public au
thorities have hitherto been unable to deal with adequate
ly because of lack of dependable data. It should prove
especially valuable in case of another national emergency
Kke the recent war. And big crisis calling for- prompt,
concerted action would find the nation's human resources
organized and ready for mobilzation.

The railroad brotherhood leaders in testifying be
fore the congressional committe considering the Plumb
bill for soviet control of the railroads continue to repeat
that "something must be done for the railroad man."
Well, hasn't a whole lot been done for the railroad man?
He is better paid and works shorter hours than he ever
did before, and is able to live better as well as any
self-respecting man' ought to live. " Few of the
smaller businessmen , who have capital invested,
make net returns equal to railroad, man's wage
and he has no money invested. The business
man also works longer and harder to make, his business
a success. What the bolshevik leaders of the railroads are
really asking is that the property be turned over to them
and that the public pay the bills for railroad operation no
matter how inefficient or extravagant it may be. Good
treatment seems to have turned the heads of these men
and they would overturn the government which has given
them just recognition in all respects, while the public has
uncomplainingly paid the bills that higher wages and
shorter hours entailed.
The first direct commercial dispatch from the United
States to the Germans was an offer to sell them malt bar
ley. "Who says the Yankee tradesman don't know what,
when and how to sell?" asks the Boston Transcript.
The suggestion of the London Times that two dif
ferent parliaments be given Ireland, one for Ulster and
the other for the rest of Ireland, certainly carries the
principle of self-determination to the limit.
By Walt Mason
This world is good in which we dwell; I like the
blamed thing mighty well, and I have lived here long; as
down my long life path I go I find eight joys for every
woe, nine rights for every wrong. Oh, now and then there
comes a day when everything seems grim and gay, and
badly out of plumb; but calm reflection brings me bliss
for every rotten day like this, six happy. days will come.
The optimist is one who knows that joys outnumber
human woes, when balances arc struck; and so, with sun
hhine in his heart, he labors in the busy mart, and nails
the useful buck. He dues not worry o'er the grief that
comes to him as a relief when happiness grows stale; no
man could stand unchanging bliss; a slice of grief wc
soon would miss, if there were none for sale. The pessim
ist is one who'll mark a record of each day that's dark, its
minutes and its hours; and he'll forget the cheerful days,
when all the landscape is ablaze with sunshine and with
flowers. He thinks that there are nineteen woes for every
joy a mortal knows, in which he's sadly wrong; I know the
good outweighs the ill, and knowledge should my counsels
i ill, for I have lived here long.
This price-raising, wage-raising business is simply a
competitive game. Too bad nobody can suggest a way by
which it may be called off.
When the present congress gets through investigat
ing it will probably be shown that the report that we
took any part in the war, to say nothing of winning it,
was all a false alarm.
Since the financial experts tell us that money is so
cheap, it's a pity we can't eat it.-
A proper reduction in the cost of building material
would start a needed era of house-building in Salem.
