AFTER every great effort there follows a period of re
action. We are now passing through' such a period,
following the effort and sacrifices of the war. The high
ideals which animated the nation a year ago, the causes
for which we fought, the liberation of peoples, the free
dom of humanity, the abolition of war, have apparently,
been forgotten, smothered under the senate's blanket of
America has had such reactions after all of her su
preme effortsepochs that brought to the surface all that
was little and contemptible in human nature. Small

statesmen seen 10 niae ineir iauure to measure up 10
greatness in the hour of national peril by envious attacks
upon those who did hence the abuse of Wilson, of Per
shing, of Hoover, of Daniels, of all those who helped win
the war by the Johnsons, the Reeds, the Shermans and the
Borahs who didn't.
After the revolutionary war, the reactionary ele
ments had their inning and the colonies came near disin
tegrating. After the adoption of the constitution, Wash
ington was the center of a campaign of villification only
equalled by that later showered upon Lincoln and in our
own day upon Wilson. But these natural periods of reac
tion have in all cases been followed by a return to normal,
because the people are at heart wholesome and true to
national ideals, if the self-seekers who misrepresent them
are not. -' "
The war will have been in vain if effort is not made
to fulfill the aims for which the nation fought. A square
deal to small peoples calls for a League of Nations now
as a part of a treaty of peace worthy of our effort. We
fought to carry the principles of the Declaration of Inde
pendence to all nations. We won the battle. Are we go
ing now to desert the cause for which we struggled? Is
America to betray the trust that brought hope to Europe?
America was not misrepresented at the fighting front
nor at the peace conference. But she is misrepresented
by the narrow visioned United States senate, where pro
vincial partisanship and peanut politics have supplanted
patriotism and would make the nation a slacker in her
duty to humanity. "
There are signs that this dark day of reaction is near
ing an end and that a healthy public opinion will enforce
itself, compelling acceptance of the peace treaty and
silencing the braying asses of our national temple of dis
cord. : ".
HUNTING A HUSBAND
By Mary Douglas
A LETTER IS WRITTEN
It seems too wonderful. Last night
George Arnold stayed with me ull even
ing. He neglected Margot and even
Mia. Ashby. He uid to nie, "You are
that rare thing, a modern girl with deli
It has made me happy ever since. That
ho should say that. He, a man among
men. A man with the sure way that
comes only from handling big things,
and men. And J interested him, when
I had given up all hope. Because I was
myself was modest, '
But my little triumph has alloy. It
runs through it all. The problem of
Beunic. He says ho loves me; and he
thinks it, too. And I must do something
to make him forget.
At last 1 have hit on a plan. By my
advice, he would study at the Art
League this winter. But it is" secondary
a time-filler. While Bennie 's whole
heart is set on going to war.
I shall write to Bunnie's mother, mv
great-aunt, whom I see seldom. I shall
tell her Bonnie loves me. Is bent on
marrying me. Swears he will do wild
things if I will not marry him. And
says many foolish things. Foolish, but
they worry me. ...
I shall tell her I am six yoors older
than Bcnnie. But I am very fond of
Bennie. Love him, in fact. But I shall
tell her it is in a big-sisterly way. 1
shall write her too, that Bennie 's one
aim is to go to yar. If she will let him
do that, it will save him. But. otherwise
I do not know where his madness may
J lead him. Nor where' mv tiitv shall
make me follow.
The letter is written. I feel relieved.
It would be .such a splendid way out. i!
will make a man of Bennie. And though
he is only nineteen, ho is not too youn
to -serve his country.
The die is cast. I can only hope snt
will gee it as I do.
George. Arnold is coming again to
night. -And Judge Ashby. I cannot but
wonder what he is.
A while ago I went to Mrs. Ashby 'a
room. She lay on her couch. The glar
ing morning sun streamed over her. I
could not but notice the sallowness of
her skin. And the deep linos cut In
her face. They are ewsed under a deli
But I almost felt as if she were wor
ried, frightened.. As if hc would tell
something. But had laid a restraining
finger oji her lips. .
With all her charm and fascination,
can she not hold her husband f Or is
ho jealous of the attention she attracts!
Or is it something else?
I am curious I admit to see the
husband of the bewitching Mrs. Ashby.
But not as curious as I am happy.
For George Arnold is coming tonight.
(Monday Judge Ashby comes.)
SALEM is losing population daily because of the ack
of housing facilities.
V New and growing industries assure payrolls and per
manent tenantsyet no effort is being made to house
One thing is certain the city is filled to overflowing
and there-is no place for the prospective resident tcrmake
his home. Salem cannot grow and expand unless more
houses are provided. - - ,
i Property owners and builders who have held back
expecting a reduction in building costs, are working a
serious injury to the city's future for there is not going
to be much of a reduction for some years and in all prob
ability building costs will never descend to their old level.
, The builder will, as formerly, figure upon a fair re
turn upon his investment and the property will yield it
for if building costs have increased, so have rents, and the
increased earning power of renter makes it easier to col
lect. Community welfare demands an effort upon the part
of the city's monied men to solve the housing problem at
once. If individuals will not build, the example of other
cities should be followed and a building corporation form
ed, its stock subscribed by the public, and operations un
dertaken upon a large scale. The houses so constructed
would be sold before completion, or rented in advance for
long periods at a rate that would insure profits to the
4 Prominent Calif ornians have wired Senator Hiram
Johnson requesting him to cease his opposition to the
peace treaty on the ground that he is misrepresenting the
people of California. Johnson who is now, as always, a
self seeker, does, not care what4he people of California
want. He will ignore the request and continue his shame
less campaign for the presidency by appealing to the Bol
