While the United States Senate
hails the KelloggBriand treaty for
the renunciation of all war; while
the League of Nations council
solemnly sits in Geneva; while the
Pan - American representatives
confer at Washington; while ev-
eryone shouts for peace and be-
lieves it almost achieved, little
Bolivia and smaller Paraguay
seem to be staging a first rate
minor war all unaware of any
peace proposals whatsoever. The
League offers arbitration; the
Paris pact offers hope; the Pan-
American delegates remonstrate
and Paraguay ships 30,000 troops
to the border= as the Bolivians at-
tack forts.
It is very odd indeed, this tiny
war, with the presumption-so gen-
eral that the public opinion. of no
nation will stand for warfare.
Bolivia and Paraguay, of course,
could both be rather thoroughly
wiped out without harming the

. progress of mankind to any mate-
rial extent (they total 4,000,000
persons between them) but the
point which is really vital in .the
situation is quite different, and one
which is rather hard to face.
We are told that all the nations
of the world want peace; and we

the public press and by the powder
manufacturers of the U n i t e d
States Senate, could be induced to
,believeagain that all Germaps are
bloodthirsty barbarians and all
persons murdered in war heroes.
Our historians, to be sure, might
conclude again ten years after the
conflict that Germany was not
even responsible for the war; but
that would only make to seem
mord worthy the expenditure of
millions of lives in testing the fact.
Given some good advertising
slogan like "Make the world Safe
for Democracy," a generous dose
of perverted propoganda, anQi a
few demagogues in the national
government and it is extremely
likely that any nation in the world
will go to war. in 1937 precisely as
she went to war in 1917. There is
no such thing as universal peace,
even in name, until the people of
the world come to the conclusion,
if they ever will, that it is really
rather foolish to kill persons or get
killed just because the steel manu-
facturers can make a fortune out
of it. Kellogg pacts, arbritration
treaties, League of Nations, etc.,
are all rather worthless until this
enlightened state of the public
conscience becomes a reality; and
judging from the actions of our
far southern neighbors that en-
lightenment still does not exist in
at least two nation of this hem-
The House committee on the
census has reported "a bill for the
apportionment of Representatives
in Congress," constituting the first
step in the direction of Congres-
sional obedience to the constitu-
tional provision which it hlas been
violating for the past eight years
and will continue to violate until
this or some similar bill becomes
a law.
Oddly enough, but not without
reason, the question of reappor-
tionment has become closely linked
with that of prohibition enforce-
ment. Supporters of the Volstead
act have consistently opposed re-
apportionment for fear that it
would mean an increase in the
wet representation in Congress.'
From the standpoint of the stu-
dent of government, the situation
is a most interesting one. From
the viewpoint of practical politics
and government, it is a most de-
plorable one. In either light, the
spectacle is that of two bitter op-
ponents, each resorting to nullifi-
cation. In the one case, the wet
group have virtually nullified the
prohibition laws by appropriating
insufficient funds for its enforce-
ment; in the other, the dry group
has been practicing nullification in
the case of reapportionment.
Reapportionment, in any event,
is far too important a subject to
be allowed to pass unheeded, sim-
ply because of the opposition of
I nullificationist forces. Among the
states which have suffered be-
cause of the failure to reapportion
House seats, Michigan has been
probably the heaviest loser. Of the
Michigan representatives, Con-
gressman McLeo has taken a def-
inite leadership in the fight. His
work is to be commended and
should be remembered by the state.

time both for the balance of the
time until the taking of the 1930
census, and for the ten years fol-
lowing. In the face of previous op-

position, it hardly seems likely that
any action will be taken affecting '
the 1929 Congress. There is little
reason, however, why the present
Congress should not pass an act!
