THE REVELATION OF MUSSOLINI AND OUR "SENATE I vThe in.o!ence of the outlaw methods of Mussolini, the petty Caesar of the Black Shirt, and the rallying cry of the enemies of constitution, an treaties, has outraged the American people almost unanimously, if it.d ta ar not etharwiaa arad HfeTflay Judge ffofinhe Unanimity hrharsbserverJTtr papar and alaa laeal news pub i i i i i ir in ana we nae it on good authority that he was aghast when he found that we are opposed to imtenahstic strong arm, rough house methods. Why waj Mussol ni He hat given the answer in an authorized interview with the Associated Press, in which Tie expresses ms Inability comprehend our present hotihly fo the old pre Ieague methods of international diplomacy and pol tics on the ground that we had shown ourselves to be the League of Nations. Get the significance of that statement! It means two things: One that the junkers and' the jingoes, the strong arm men, the militarists, the imperialists, the whole bloody crime caked crew of international brigands that has been slaughtering boys on reedless battlefields for centuries all interpreted our senate attitude toward the league, and the people's attitude toward the senate's position as meaning our opposition to international organizations for the prevention of wars; as to meaning our hostility to the substitution of international law for the lnch Uw of the war lords. Tt means, too, that if Mussolini had known thai we did not hold these iews and were, in reality, in sjmpalhy with the purposes of the league, he would never have seized the islands of a little' nation nor have shelled undefended places, nor have slaughtered Armenian orphans. In other words, Mussolini's reversion to the meanest! bloodiest methods of medievalism was due to the absence of the United States from the League of Nations for that is precisely what he says.

Thus the treaty wreckers of the senate have been considered toul mates by the Mussolinis. of Cotfu. and the D'Annunzios. of Fiume. "Vhat a splendid reputation.

II Commenting on tic fact that the council of ambassadors, with the records of, the council oc the league before it, made the proposals which have prevented a war and that the enemies' of the league will point to this ancient instrumentality, and the Washington conference, and the world court as evidence that no league is needed, the New York Evening Post furnishes the definitive answer: Let us admit, for the take of argument, that all these agencies and programs are better than the league. It only remains then to explain the more or less sudden interest and faith now being displayed in ambassadorial conferences, international courts of justice, Washington conferences codifications of international larv, outlawry of war and Hague tribunals. The ansn'er simple. The League of Nations has forced these alternatives to the front. If there were no league we doubt whether we should now have all these highly recommended substitutes for the.leaghe.

If there were no league we wonder whether R'tub lican leaders would have gone in so hard for the world court If there were no league we wonder whether Senator Borah Would have recognized so quickly the need for putting a stop to naval competition If there were no league we whether k'md words would now he 1 xoneeftHng theHague tribunaLJflhcte. nn irneuc wt bonder whether there would be so much stress laid on the codification of international law and the outlawing of war imiilt jWe had been no League of Nations No assembly at Geneva with representatives of practically every nation of the earth No pretest from the league against the methods of Mussolini No protest to the league by Greece No pasionate protest against the bullying of a small nation by a great one from all the small nations of the world Then would Mussolini have proceeded in the good old way to crush Greece, seize her islands for keeps, plunge the Balkans in another war that would have spread, beyond a doubt, until it embraced the greater part of the old world and involved the new. The very existence of the League of Nations has forced Mussolini from his high horse with the promise to withdraw from Corfu. What Does Italy's King Think? would be lnteretlg to know what the king of Italy, who has always 1m pressed the world as a very high class monarch, and one to be depended upon, thinks ot the miserable manner la which the politicians ot his realm. In recent yeara, who We been staining the honor ot bis nstlon A nation, like an Individ ual, cannot afford the reputation of being untrustworthy A man who is In the habit ot making contracts only to treat, them will soon a rather shady nsme It hss not been so long ago since the world stood by, In some ameiementj listening to the bargaining and the bartering to determine on which side Italy would fight In the World war She had a contract 6be had a signed sgreemenL While pos stole thst she had been tricked or be trayed into Jolnlngv the triple alliance she was In It, and hen the time" came tor her to Join her allies she held back.

We who were, on the other side In that struggle could have defended her course on the ground that she did not feel It possible, In honor to battle sgatnst democracy But It ss hot lost upon the world that she received, weighed, con sldered propositions from both the allies snd the central powers. The sine's agreed to give her this, and the central concealed from us, whereby Italy was to get Certain territory Then the pecu liar actions ot Orlando Lansing friend in the pesce conference but In the end Italy signed another contract a contract to live up to the provisions of the covenant ot the League of Nations Meanwhile came Mussolini, the tiny Caesar, to spit on democracy to shske his sword at liberty, to shoot holes In the constitution, to trample with his cavalry on representative government And then with, the Greek crisis we havs Jtaly again announcing with apparent levity, and with an almost delicious disregard ot th sanctity of a signed document, that Italy under his regime Is not bound by treaties, but stands on her powers ss a military nation And through all ot this the Italian king has been silent It Is true that he Is ppwerlesa, but It Is hard to beUeve that he contemplates With much complacency the manner In which Italian politicians are playing with the honor ot hla nation Harvey and Hays Hobnob. The other day, after a prolonged absence In this country, sn absence so prolonged as to almost persuade the country that the nation might be facing eO other calamity In the losing of the services ot the delectable Colonel Harvey, powers countered by offering her that i lhat worthy sailed for Englsnd. No one snd she let It be known thst she considering both this and that The vihole proceeding looked like material barter with Wo principle Involved Natu rally we tried to close our eyes to the ugly scene Then came the armistice snd the discovery by President Wilson tbst Italy and other nations had entered Into a secret treaty, which was carefully knows yet why be wss able to absent himself from a tremendoualy Important post for months at a time. It wss hinted by some of his friends thst the living In London.

What a rival he would make for BUI Hart For haa not the "Colonel distinguished MmfH Tiy fhn trace" and pass With which he haa ridden In paradea while fighting and bleedmg for his country as a 'colonel" on two governors' staffs perhaps the colonel has a copyright on his cartoon of the Immaculate Conception, and the cartoons ridl cullng the physical condition of Wilson, and maybe lie moving pictures want these for the screen Less subtle souls will put It down to politics When George Harvey and Will 'Hays sojourn together under the same root for weeks at a time many v. Ill suspect that Brest denttal polities Is figuring a bit In the conversations. And what conversations! Nothing like it quite since old Dr. John eon, with Boswell at his elbowj conversed with Edmund Burke on the phll osopby of government, with Garrlck on the art ot the stsge with Goldsmith on beauty Unhappily we shall bare to wait In time we shall know something of the conversations in the London em basay How foolish it seems tbst the thoughtless world should be Interesting Itself with the conversations between Potneare and Streaemann, between Mus sollnl and Greece, when Colonel Harvey la pouring forth Uls wealth ot wisdom for the delectation and delight ot our fellow Hoosler Taking the Family Along The family car haa become almost an American Institution It la a nn and generous thing that father contrives the means to purchase It and further con trlves for operation and upkeep Mother and the children the whole family, and now and then the family a friends have the constant pleasure oflt Father drlrea and it la with a sens of doing well, with a thrill of satisfaction he reflects upon the power he ha given himself to 1m psrt so much variety such a trsln ot enjoyment to dally life.
