The boat Way to promote bolshevism in Germany and make Way for the Russo germanic Alliance of communism la to restore the blockade a Blockhead idea from Tho Start. The allies May be Abl to police Germany even though they failed in Russia but it would be both costly and unwise. Better permit Germany to maintain a competent police Force without making it an excuse for grabbing More German territory. Germany is not dangerous today and As work is gradually resume she will become less and less a menace. She can be made a menace in Tbs future by a policy calculated to promote teutonic Alliance with soviet Russia. A a a Japan tights hard to hold it own in Eastern Siberia.

Pretty Good Cotton Belt stuff wot watch Denim Price Clear the bar a a new Altitude and listen to King Cotton the one unde throned chuckle. Raw Cotton is 43 today and the South is holding acres of Bales for a Rise to 11.00. An Overall fad might put it Over i the top.

The arrest of Many strike leaders under the lever act seems a doubtful expedient it May serve to give Backbone to the outlaws. Denial of the Radical Leaden that the i. W. W. Is Back of the strike with revolutionary designs is hardly sustained in View of speeches delivered by professed Quot Reb j Sis Quot and cheered by the men. In which violence was openly advocated. A a a a Chicago Mother wife of a promo i pent lawyer seized a Moron who Hadj molested her 10-year-old daughter in the movie theater in which lie had seated himself by the child dragged Bim Over the laps of others in the audience chucked him into her car and took him to the police station spartan motherhood of this sort commends itself.
