What's Wrong With the Country?
James Hamilton Lewis, former sen-
ator: from Illinois, makes a few re-
marks about .political parties that are
"The two old parties'"hereafter will
bear their names only," says Lewis.
"People don't vote for a party or a
man any longer. They vote against
somebody or something. Elections to-
day are merelya voice against fancied
'or real agricultural or financial or
industrial evils. ,If the farmer can't
sell his crops he votes against the ad-
ministration. If the worker can't get
a job or the cost of living won't per-
mit the saving of money he votes
against the party in power, If taxes
are high and income schedules, irk-
some the financial; or' business made
says it is time to change his politics.
There seems to be a great deal of
truth in what the former senator says.
Voters do not seem to vote for some-
thing or- somebody as much as they
vote against. In other words they are
usually asking for the destruction or
mitigation of some real or facied evil
without giving much thought as to how
'the evil is to be removed and what is
to take its: place. Destructive and
not constructive platforms seem to
catch the popular vote.,
Henry Ford, interviewed for Col-
lien's Weekly by ,Charles W. Wood,
asks three questions before he at-
tempts to divulge what he would do if
he were president:
(1) What do the people of the Un-
ited States think they want?
(2) What do they really want?
(3) Exactly what is wrong with the

would go a long way toward insuring
peace. Yes, and'Just what is wrong
with the country, anyway?

ing for the admittance 'of women to
that branch of the university in the
future. Reminding the trustees that
our womanhood has already assumed

of Women Voters asks that the bar-
riers which have long since been lift-
ed from other departments be done

Restrictions against creed, race, and
sex were all-important rules of the
"old Columbia" but have no place
there now. Women are privileged to
practice over the supreme courts of
our states, and still are denied ad-
mittance to one of the best law schools
in the country- How can such a cir-
cumstance continue if the so-called
"weaker-sex" is to be given the priv-
ileges which are rightfully hers?

THE APOCALYPSE' OF GER1IANY
(New York Times)
Truly horrible is the prophecy. of
Count Harry Kessler regarding the
fate ,awaiting Europe unless the Un-
ited'States takes the side of Germany.
He pictures the Russian hordes gal-
loping westward over the plains 'of
Europe to bring imperialist France to
judgment; nation will war against na-
tion, race against race, and there will
be an end of European civilization for
all time. This new day, like "Der
Tag" of 1014, is at hand, but it is one
demanding even more gloomy words
than those of the prophet Zephaniah
describing the Judgment of Judah:
"That day is a day of wrath, a .day ofj
trouble and distress, a day of waste-
ness and desolation, a day of darkness
and gloominess, a day of clouds and
thick darkuess, a day of the trumpet
and alarm against the fenced cities
and the high towers-" Count Harry's
! day is all this, and more for it is the
day of judgment in which France will
be sorely punished for her sins.
Nor does the count hesitate to fore-
cast' details: Germany, in fulfillment
of her oft-;epeated promise, will go
Bolshevist 'as the zero hour strikes.
Promptly, France, insane with the lust
of world dominion, and eager to create
new Alsace-Lorraines, -will occupy
the entire North of Germany. 'There-
upon, Russia, incensed beyond an
durance at French rapacity, will at-
tack Poland. The dogs of war being
thus let loose, the world will expire
crying "Havoc!" in a Slavic'tongue.
The one thing that can alone forestall
this calamity is for tife United States
to come to the rescue. The Count re-
minds us that in 1917 the United States
made the mistake, of going in on the
wrong side, and, with tender solici-
tude for our nation's future, he im-
plies that we would do well to profit,
from that error. There would, have
been, he points out, a very different
peace had we bilked the Allies-a
peace which he modestly asserts
would have lasted several genrations
at least. .
There is, something wopderfully fa-
miliar about all this. It is miuch like
the portentous warnings of German
spokesmen in 1916, who pictured
Russia breaking away from: the Allies
(as she did a yea' later) and siding
with Germany (as' she forgot to do)
and with Japan, and then, woe to the
world, for the combination would be
invincible. Then, as now, they warn-
ed us that we must force the Allies to
accept the German peace terms or else
be responsibe for the blood of Eu-
In one important respect the count
is at odds with prominent German
supporters in America who, like him-
self, viewed with alarm the Russian
horde. 'They pointed out that Ger-
many alone stood between Russia and
France, and that it therefore behoov-
ed the French to 'save Germany .so
as to preserve it as a buffer between
themselves and those awful Cossack
'horsemen- Apparently, Count Harry
is not quite so unselfish, nor. it he
quite, so solicitous for France's mil-
itary defenses. The willingness of
the Germans, however, to side with
or against the Russians is another ev-
idence of' Germany's plastic com-
plaisance. If we are to believe every-
said for her, she will do anything un-
'"r the sun that is asked of her-any-
thing, that is, except come to terms
with the French.
