It in only a beginning and its completion will be followed by a gradual extension of Iho system. The Germans are saying they want a republican form or government, dis armament, small armies and navies and all of the trappings lUat will glv them a place at Uie League of Na tlons Inble. That sounds all right but the Allies and the United States will miss It/' if they don't make the Teu­ tons give guarantees. Taking away their shooting Irons Is one ot th best things that can be done. The head ot the Oermau armistice delegation, Maitbin,< Krabcrgcr, ad mlts thai Ms country' did iho wrong thing in 1ST1 In taking over Alsace Lorraine, without allowing tho peo pin to take n vole on it. It would be foolish for the Allies lo grab some land, ip the same way, without consulting iho people who reside on the real islnlr. This is the best breeding place for future wars. Marsha! Koch is a good man to handle this armistice business*made an exhibition of the Allied mailed fist to the Hun armistice del on Sunday and they didn't lose any lime in signing the papers. It Is a few things like this that make the Germans understand they are really and trftly whipped. « • • • If Ole Hanson, Seattle's mayor, hap pens to get out of a job, he might easily secure a good one by trying the "situation wanted" column. A nam ber of communities are in need of a gent whose internal machinery is made up like that of Ole. AN EXCELLENT RECORD. • "In telling of the merits of the City Manager system in Wichita, the Beacon prints the following commendation of the better government since thiB system was established: • "The account of his stewardship given by City Manager Ash before the Rotary Club was gratifylsg in its showing of real progress, economy ami efficiency. "lly saving one hundred thousand dollars in the sanitary sewer project, n few thousands on park concessions, a low thousands on garbage and so on, the salary of the manager has been paid many times over. "Of course eighteen months' trial under very adverse war-time conditions does not constitute a fair test, hut even with tho handicap, Mr. Ash has made remarkably good showing. Tho scandalous conditions of the city jail have boon remedied, the municipal farm has been established, the tribe of drug addicts has been greatly decreased and some of its members have been built up physically and morally and given a new start. Gradually a more .business-like system has boon introduced—a system in which things are watched as closely as In a business corporation, "The "police deparltnent, target of abuse iu every administration, imperfect us it admittedly is, shows a greatly Improved record over that of previous 1 years. The black and white record of arrests, prosecutions, recoveries 01 • automobiles, is so good that li w... surprise those who habitually find fault. No one claims It Is anywhere near perfect. This paper has found - several occasions to point out lapses . and faults which must be remedied. But the average Is good. One slgnlfl- vcant fact is that Wichita hits been , found by war department lnveslUul- > ore to be one of the cleanest oities- in > tho United States in the matter of , social vice. Tho investigation was • roudu by officials without the knowledge or local police and the letter ot eoimueuduUon came unexpectedly % front a department head of whom Mr. • Ash hud paver heard before, "Unbiased und' unprejudiced citizens will take muob comfort In the things that have been accomplished under the manager plan. There is ovory reason to believe that the next two years will establish lis superior- i lly beyond tho shadow of doubt." A Mexican paper is praising the proposed League of Nations and declaring it will\touch the spot, It's about time Mexico was coming agross. The foreign minister of Germany has resigned, but it doesn't matter. <!• <i- Q .-$> JS< <j> <f. 3> <J, A BEAUTIFUL LETTER. '.•>.. By Ruth Cameron. • <*> " * <->«><S.<?>*'S>«>4><S>*<*.<S><s><S> A woman read me a beautiful letter the other day. By a beautiful Jet-, ter, I mean ono of those letters that aro not only full of the writer's daily life and interests but also have some of his thoughts and spiritual emotions In tbetn. This letter came from a dear friend whom she is only able lo seo occasionally, but with whom she corresponds with irregular regularity. "1 can't tell you how much that friendship means to me," she said, as she laid the letter down. '"More tWln many of the friendships with people I see day after day, and do things, and go to. places with." 1 could well understand it. For, many a time, Ihe people we see day after day never get as close to us, never talk so woll to us, never give us as vivid a sense of their interests", never open their hearts and personalities to us as this woman had done in her letter. And as I meditated afterward over which I had been given such a pretty glimpse, I fell to thinking with regret of tho fact that \there are so few in my own life. Through my mind there seemed to have flit the ghost of such friendships that might have been, If only I had not been too busy, doing Ihe immediate thing, finding my pleasures and ha-ppInesB-along tie line of least resistance, to follow them up. How many congenial people have come Into my life wakened my spirit to a fine .glow of friendship, and then passed out again just because ' cl^cumslnit^ ccs put the miles between us! I have always said I was too busy to write these long, intimate letters that would have been my sjiaro of the task and joy of keeping such friendships alive. Shame on me I I have not been too busy to sit,and talk by the hour to people whose chief chanm was that they chanced lo live neat mo. or to read books and magazines whose chief claim to attention was that I found them handy on my reading table, ] make this a personal confession becauso that Is the easiest way to put II, and because I am the only person 1 really know about, But you know how It Is with you.

If you are, I hope the ghosts'of the worthwhile friendships that might have been will come to you ae they have to me, ami haunt'you, too, into making the resolve to bring them to life once more.

Corporal George E. Thalm'an, who is iu Co. II. of the 140th Infantry, 35th Division, writes nonie "interesting things which be has seen since be has been over there. His letter follows: Mr. and Mrs. Harms and family Must drop you a few lines to let you know I'm still alive. We are located about three miles from Coiumercy in a small country village. We are now allowed to tell ^whero ye are. Of course while the war was going on we could not mention the name of any town oyer here. We have been nearly all over France. The first lime we were in the front line trenches-, we were up in. the mountains in the Alsace sector. This was in the months of July and August. We spent twenty-nine days at the front there; then wo were held iu reserve for a/bout, two weeks, and front that time on we were mostly In support and reserve until we made, the big drive. Believe me,,wo were sure enough at the front that time. When we first started over,'-we were held up by machine guns. Tho bullets were whizzing everywhere; but it wasn't Jong until wo saw a tank coming across the field. It was one of our tunica to destroy the machine gun nests. It tore the barbed wire entanglements down for us aud about that time we saw the Germans running their best. It was not long then until we were after them. We had several gus ut tacks durlug that lime, but we just put on our masks and went on through. Tho big shells were -dropping srovrtid us very close, Many of them threw the dirt all over me, but I. never was bit. / One lime we were all lylrig down behind a little rldgo of ground und a piece of Iron of a shell about four Inches long and one Inch wlde'hlt me Just below my collar bone, but It did not comu swift enough to hurt mo. Y\ started to pick ll up ana nearly burnt my fingers, It was so hot.Now, believe me, 1 Hure do think u lot ot, my helmet. Whenever wo made un advance and It got little hot for us, wo would full down; bjust felt as If I could crawl under, my helmet and then I'd.feel quito safe. 1 saw one night In the battlefield I will never forget, it akuoBt got tbo 'best of me. The lieutenant who was with us said 11 almost got the nest of bin. I snail tell you about it wboB 1 get boms.

They surely can tell many interesting things, They fought until the last minute before they gave up. 1 could sit here all day and write about my wttr experiences, but it would make my'letter too long and it would take up too much oO'our time reading my war stories.
