Asked foi iu's opinion on Llm 'outcome of European negotiations, Seiin- toi Boiah said: "Gci many will do as she pleases mid the ,lilies will submit to it. The Versailles lieatv will be scrapped and that will bo ,1 good thing." That foiecast sounds accurate. Germany obviously is doing as she pleases Only a war will stop her, and the allies cleaily do not care to pay that pi ite And so J'or the treaty—its de- lects aie ho apparent, by this time, that few Americans will quarrel with the senatoi's verdict on it.

United Fight on Dope Evtrv state legislature could profitably give heed to President Roosevelt's appeal for a system of.uniform slate laws to abolish the illegal Irall'ic in narcotic drugs. Ab the picsidcnf points out, the fed- OUT OUR WAY eral government alone cannot wholly check this traffic. It must have full cooperation from local law enforcement units. But the great diversity of existing state laws on narcotic drugs makes such co-operation very hard to obtain. No part of the current campaign against crime is more important than the drive against the drug evil. Passage of uniform slate legislation along the lines'suggested by the federal authorities will help us to attack the crime problem in a most vital '/.one. Ireland Mel ihe Problem Sixly Years Ago The movement In Congress to incut (lie Growing land tenantry In this country recalls < cfforls (lull huvc been made In countries of the old world along this line. Of course it Is quite naumil for us here in America to tlilnk Ilinl we have done nboiit everything, s«ca about, cvcryllilnR and accomplished about everything of any worth to anybody. The (ruth remains, . however, tlml lew nations In (he world have taken .so little heed of their natural resources, .• have done so little, planned so remotely the use of those Rreat resources as has America. The problem of land tenantry luis been rushing at us for llircc-qiiartors of a century; we've (lone loUs of walling about It; we've viewed with alarm and waxed high ID our warning, but never a .step has been taken Ui a real constructive sense until the present Congress when, spurred on by the headlines from Arkansas, a measure was whipped together to at least announce a national policy nloii!,', this line for America. The condition of tlio land tenant til) years "f!0 In Ireland was probably the worst In the entire civilized world. Indeed, Hie Irish land tenant was compared unfavorably with slaves In the oriental countries. Sir Horace PlunkcU look this matter In hiinil and through a svs- li'iii of subsidy, Die lirciikhis; up of landed es- , tales mill, better yet, a thorough sy.slem of education mill supervision, lie brought Ireland back from n country nliuost wholly run by absentee landlords to a people largely owning Ibelr own homes on Ibelr own farms. Similar action was taken in Inter years In Germany, Hungary and llnly. Only, in England has ttie tenant •system followed, but even there tcnanls have protective lawn, which place them almost, on a p;v with Ihose owning Ynrir own lai\d. Only in America, with Hie greatest Umd- ed resources in (lie world, have we seen tit to do nothing. As we have said many, many limes in these, columns and we still say it—no country, no -slate, no county, no community ever can become wealthy or powerful by exploiting the inany for Hie fciv. Take any purl, of the world r-you" wish to look'nnd you will find the soundest s m05t progressive and tbc happiest people where (hero is some semblance of ownership in the home they occupy ami the land they work. —Arkansas Fanner. i U'hc mode industry must not only be, willing, but ready and able, to respond lo 1 the voice of of public, opinion.
