We would say that it ought not to be, but that as long as we have a gov- ernmsnt that pretends to bu responsible for the prosperity of its people it is a responsibility of that government to see that nobody starves to death as a result of conditions that in part tit least are thz result of governmental interference with the normal course of business. In other words, a government that taxes a part of the peopls for the benefit of another part, through a tariff, also owes relief, when nesded, to farmers, unemployed, or any other group. However that may be, it in certain that honesty of purpose is the least that ought to be demanded. If the federal government's policy is to extend relief, as we are given to understand, then it should extend relief, not just pretend to. Expenditure of ?11G,- 000,000 on public works, as is proposed in the administration unemployment relief bill, ;sotinds like something, but it is not. It will help, of course, but it will help so little tnat most of the victims of the present state of affairs will not know^anythinjj has happened. Prisons and Shrines. S'dhie''*¥fasliingtbn officfffl ! recently proposed- that a federal penitentiary be built on the site of Fort Mcltenry, fa- ' mous as the birthplace of the Star- Spangled Banner) and the proposal has drawn a hot retort from Paul C. Wolman, commander-in-ehief of the Veterans of Foreign Wars. "The mere suggestion that Fort JIc- Henry be torn down and a penal institution be erected in its place," says the commander, "is particularly repugnant to every patriotic American." This is quite trua; and the fact merely emphasizes how far our penitentiaries fall short of what they should be. If a prison were really a place where human derelicts could ba reclaimed and turned •'into honorable and useful cili- OUT OUR WAY zens—us, some day, all prisons will be —we would think it quite appropriate that one be built on a historic shrine. But as things arc; well, we must agree with Commander Wolman. Wheat for the Chinese? The cm-rent Magazine of Wall Strcat, pointing out that the federal farm board may well have a tremendous carryover of wheat at the end of the year, and fearing that such a carryover would have an extremely depressing influence, makes this suggestion; "Why not give it away? Four hundred million underfed Chinamen would devour it without loosening their belts. At tho sight of a pile of wheat being distributed by the government the Communists would fade away faster than they over will before machine guns, The wheat might be given to our people, but home relief can better be handled by cash, and without clanger of making -matters worse by upsetting the flour and baking trades. "Giving"wheat to starving Chinamen who aren't buying and can't buy will upset nothing—and may set up an era of peace and reconstruction in China. And China is one of the things that is the matter with this disturbed world." Claims of publishers notwithstanding, the most popular book for Chrtslmne is dad's check book.

States leak pccscsslon of the Louis-' lana territory after purchasing a' from Prance for tl« price of $15-j GCO.OOO. This was tlic most remarkable event in the administration of President Jefferson. : The territory comprised the ,;n-1 tire regicn between the Mississippi! river and the Rocky Moumalns.and extended from the north of Texas to the southern boundary of British America. Napoleon willingly sold it at such a cheap price because he sa«- that iic was likely to have war with Gnat Britain and knew thnt the British fleet could easily keep French forces away from the Mississippi river. The Louisiana purchase had theiv? hnporlant results: | It tecured the entire control of! the Mississippi and more than! doubled the area of the United j States, it strengthened the bond cf j union in the southwest and it gave new force to arguments for "inter-1 nal improvements"— the building | of roads and canals to connect the j cost and west.
