The senate was made up of older and more .distinguished looking men, of which .our senator Jonathan P. Oolliver was perhaps the leading member both in'appearance r,ncl brains. But of lute years it seems that the National capital has degenerated and became a city of sin. The burea'u of vital statistics revealed a few days ago that one out of every twelve births in the capital city is listed as illegitimate. It was also discovered that the per capita consumption of'hard liquor exceeds by three to one that of any other city in the nation, but that has been a record of some years standing. It was only a few years ago that Washington and the nation voted absolute prohibition on the nation, taking advantage of the fact that a food share of the younger men were in Europe and therefore disenfranchised 'at the time. It seems that the more we campaign against liquor the more the people demand and get their booze. It is indeed a queer world. Editorial By J. W. Haggard 'Return of the Prodigal Our one time hero, Col. Chas. -Lindbergh, is again appearing in the news occasionally, and -it is understood that he has admitted that he was all , wrong in his isolationism that he so strongly ad-- vocated before Pearl Harbor. The boyish "Col- Onel took it upon himself to lecture the country before Japan attacked us, which he hacl'said -was Impossible. The bloody attack at Pearl Harbor came shortly after he had reassured us and told us that Hitler's victory in the war was certain and that we should stay out of it. He told us that the war was no concern of ours and that we should let England fight her own battles. It was at that time openly charged that "Lincly" wanted the Germans to win. Hitler had presented him with a medal of honor for 'his airplane crossing of the Atlantic, and on the other hand it was said that the big men of England had rather slighted him when he visited London. Before the United States entered the war the Colonel was openly rated pro- German by rtiany. After Pearl Harbor his name disappeared from the news and few knew what had become of him. Lately a group of republican congressmen met with "Lindy" for exactly what purpose is not known but it was suspected that they were considering him for leadership and advice. After his admission that he was all wrong on every question before the war, it would seem to a man on the sidelines that his place as an advisor of any parly is slightly out o[ place at this time. His flight across the Atlantic denoted bravery but not necessarily statesmanship, and if the republican party have no better statesman to put forward than the noted flyer they are hard up for political material. We all remember .that "Wrong Way Corrigan" also flew the Atlantic in an old crate and should also be recognized. Patriotic Union Labor To the returning soldiers, many of whom have spent most of their time for years in the bloody fox holes and battle fields of Europe and. the Pa- .cific, after risking their lives for a.mei'e pittance to find the fat and well fed steel and automobile workers hundreds of thousand of whom are now greedily asking for a bigger wage, must seem . very unpatriotic. The boys remaining .safely at home receiving the largest w-ages ever paid in iri>- dustry, have been protected and have not needed ti: risk their lives for fifty dollars a month, while the home workers were forcing their wages up to unheard of pay by strikes and anything to gel more money out of their employers. Certainly union labor nnd its millionaire bosses may reasonably expect to be looked upon by the.returning soldiers with some contempt At latest reports nearly a million union labor men are on strike. I! is indeed a sad spectacle for our fighting men and the boys may conclude that Ihey have fought the war in vain. It will take a long time lor the hig'hly paid workers who took the opportuniy of, war to fatten on the country while the patriotic young men of the country have risked their liven to protect the stay-at-homes, to regain the respect of the soldier boys. David Lawrence, one of-the arm'chair-column- ist-strategists in Washington, declares "We are left to guess which nation we are arming against." Same day, General Marshall told the U. S. that we were tearing down our greatest military force in history at such a rate that in a year we will have comparatively little left. Is Mr. .Lawrence unaware of this? And is he unaware of the fact that what is left is not for "arming against" but occupation forces and a token force for defense.
