One Anniversary We Should Remember Komi as we ;ii-rj of cduliniiinf,' »"- liiversiirics, we let Uio 1'Hli anniversary of our rnlriiiK'C in lliu World Wai- slip hy, I he oilier day, nlniosL wHIioul noticing il. , 'Die seven men reinninin;; in Congress who voted ngninst the iletltirii- lion of war, oil that April day in 1917, issued brief sUUemcnls say ins tli;it they felt more sure than ever thnt they hail done the right limit,'The newspapers printed brief stories recalling the circiimslancus surrounding our deciiinitioii of war. Some of them retreated the loim-lost atmosphere of llial time by lellinjr whiit SOUKS, movie stars and athletic heroes were in vogue then. Hnl we let .it «o al that. No speeches, no parades, no llii^s. Here is one anniversiiry, evidently, that we don't care Id celebrate. • * *. Seventeen years is iitiile a I.OMB time—especially when they are years like the last 17, full of disillusionment ami perplexity. And it we feel that the entire war was nn unspeakably tragic mistake, a thing which consumed lives and treasure to no purpose, we only share an emotion which . seems to possess all the countries thai took part in the conflict. For it is worlh noticing that lliu one .". war anrjiyerPaiy which is celebrated in all the combatant nations is Armistice Day. The people who fought do not parade for victories or chant songs of triumph; they remember of the war only one thing worth a ceremony—the day that il ended. t * & In that fact can be read the verdict qf the world on the war. Whiit good does il do to recall ;\ll this now? We have been disillusioned about the light, to save Uio world for democracy for many years, by now; why rake over the ashes of our disillusionment again'.' Simply because we paid an enormously high price for an object lesson in the futility of force in this modern world, and We might as well make sure thai, the force of the lesson is slill sticking. The war clouds arc on the hori/.on once more, in Europe and in Asia. When the danger of a new war is Sign of Promise If there is anything to the theory that increased wages will, by boosting consumer purchasing power, create widespread business prosperity, we ought to be due for a pretty brisk revival in the immediate future. Whatever else may be happening in Hie world of industry these days, wages at least are going up. Such basic industries as steel and automobiles have granted increases to hundreds of thousands of workers in the last few weeks, and other lines have followed suit. The result is almost certain lo be a very substantial increase in (he buying of consumers' goods. Despite all that has been said, il is not yet entirely clear just how much increased consumer buying power can do 'to restore prosperity, if it can do as much as its advocates say it can, wo ought to have some pretty prosperous times ahead of us. Grandmother Is Vindicated It is exceedingly interesting lo read that Dr. Knight Dunlap, professor of .psychology at Johns .Hopkins University, heartily disapproves of the mode r ii, let-hiin-cry-it's-good-l'or-h im method ol'j rearing babies. "When a baby cried in grandmother's time," says Dr. Dunliip, "they figured something was wrong—and it, was the same way with the Indians. Aflei- all, grandmother awl the Indians knew !i great deal about babies." And he adds that the highly recommended method of leaving babies severely alone "is richly productive of social maladjustments later." I'lenty of parents will lind in this a vindication of their own private reactions. They have suspected that there was a good deal of hoouy to the modern method of caring for infants. Xow they get. corrohoralion—from an expert. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark !*t>^_ .>v-..> ma.u.i.rff.< r«»ir rm sanxf. '«;. TkeEtitw'i Utter fttx . The Profll • (To the editor:) While so mnny folks are study- Ins, reading, and some writing, all Irying to get things started back like old limes, I am wondering if I may approach this great question of employe and from ray viewpoint. employer As I approach this subject lam constantly reminded of a little Inor experience lhat came my observation, to-wit: cldent under ...,, . -- — An Intimalc associate of mine possible. I had become overcome with a very "eve there distressing delusion, Uicre appeared on the scene an advisor or counselor. This counselor's all important question, was, "Who is boss, here?" The counselor tlien proceeded to present the claim for the delusion followed by the prool of the real state of facts and again asked Ihc same question "Who is iboss here?" I will now approacn tlic ques- lon of employe and employer by sklng who Is boss? Is this the question? How much will il cost le lo - hire you or ho;v much will •ou pay me? Who is boss here? One walks out and offers his ervices to produce potatoes. 'What question Is asked? What will yon work for or what will you puy me? Who is boss in this instance? And allow me to ask which party is most essential? Can we eliminate cither and have plenty? Can we eliminate the party who plants and harvests the potatoes and have plenty? Can we eliminate the party who sits by and pays he itcs? Yes, sumption sly, every day. C'ati he live without the dog? No, it takes that dog or some other poor blood producing orea- :ure. As l see today, we do not need, and I mean by we, the human family, the accumulator, the parasite, the leach, yea tlie flea. Most every one In the world has £ome hope or conception of some future state of existence, from a happy hunting ground to a heaven with golden streets and pearly gates.

M; friend, how important Is the ques lion, "Who Is boss here?" When will we open. our eyes the understanding of the old le.s son of the dog and the flea? Car the dog live with the flea? Yes but not happily. Can he live with out the flea? Yes, but much mar happily.

I'hat sysiem must be corrected. It Is wrong, and will be corrected ivlien we yet from under the delusion. I see only one straight road lo that change and that is through the ballot. I realize that through the boycott or strike, which are synonims to me, we have a powerful and effective weapon, but they ute my second and final choice.

Eggs that meet the necessary standards are labeled "Rhode Island Special," and aUout 1.503,000 dozen, or a total of 18.000,000 eggs, have been sold to Rhode Island ot Similar services are provided for chickens, turkeys, apples and alt varieties of fruits and vegetables.
