within a few weeks should be and probably will be settled with a view to practical military effect and without regard to the interests or wishes of any individual says the Sioux City Journal It seems wholly idle to go to the trouble of debating so self evident a fact Yet the ques 1 tlon of the hour as usually stated is not Shall a division be sent quickly to France The question is discusseu from day to day is Shall Roosevelt re allowedto go to France The i juestion should not be put up to the in that form If put up that form it should be answered oh general principles There Is ho doubt of the intention of thegovernment to send troops to France A great army is to be raised for that purpose and put into action as soon as It can be done effectively When this will be depends in part upon the length of time required for adequate preparation and in part upon the wishes of the allied strategy board That American troops can cut a considerable figure in the trenches within a year is recognized t everywhere That they will be doing so if the war lasts so long is equally p apparent The question under dis cussion now ia whether a sort of ad L vance guard shall be sent within a few small unit to serve as a symbol of American willingness to itHRke the blood sacrifice It should be fully understood that any advan tage to accrue1 from such an expedi tion willbe moral that in actual fighting an American detachment of 50000 or 100000 would not add in any substantial way to the force of the big push now in progress on the western front Some people seem to favor the ear ly dispatch of a small unit because it would give Roosevelt a chance to get Into the war in an active way Others seem to oppose the move for precise ly the same reason Neither argu ment is good and neithershould he given weight in deciding the qnes 1 tion If bysending a small expedi tion to France within the next few months we can help to bring the war to any earlier close than could other wise be attained the expedition should be sent If there is not reas onable promise of military advan tage through the moral effect of American physical prticipation in the fighting we should continue to de vote our energies to preparation for the time when such participation can be initiated most etfetcively In this connection it should be understood that the possible moral effect of American agressiveness will be lim ited for the most part to Germany The French morale has always been high and the British morale is now Aftt its crest The German morale ob Wlouslyis slipping Gen Joffre has given a powerful boos to the movement for an early MlAmerican expedition Gen Joffre is in charge of the fighting in Whether his plea for early American activity represented per gWsonal sentiment of the plans of the high command remains to be i2feenIf the alllel strategists want American flag in the field with Jthe least possible delay and are to accommodate their arrange to a makeshift expedition an UiifmProvaed

grains for food that now goes into the manufacture of liquors the ban will be placed upon the manufacture and sale of liquors says the Water loo Times Tribune We have hardly reached the point yet In tbo opinion of a great many people where it is necessary to turn the grain from the brewery and dis tillery into food channels but there is no assurance that it will notbe done If it be a question of things to eat or unnecessary things to drink then preference will be for use of the things that now go Into drink in the manufacture of things to eat A great deal depends upon the re port to be made by the agricultural department as to crop prospects for the year If prospects are not roseate then congress may be expected to act as unquestionably food is of first consideration just as important in this war as bullets It must not be considered a matter of prohibition or antiprohibition but a matter of food at a reasonable price If after Investigation it is found liquor is in the way of food at a
