Finally we must consider that if the restaurants,
according to their own statements are still mak-
ing money with a 25 per cent increase when mate-
rials have advanced 66 per cent their'forner profits
must have been what' might at least be termed
"fancy."
CONSCIENCE STRICKEN OR JUST
" WORRIED?
Some of the landladies, we understand, squirmed
at our editorial about them and said that they were-
n't prfiteering, but if they had read the article care-
fully, they might have been able to understand that
we did not say they here profiteering, merely
warned them not to do so. Their attitude ol the
matterdnakes/ us rather suspicious and, makests
wonder if they are not profiteering. By their ac-
tions, -it seems that the slightest reference to such
a thing brings out protestations of innocence, (I-
spite the fact that they were accused of nothing.
It is this zeal to establish their innocence of a wrong
not alleged that looks bad, and makes us wonder if
the warning did not stir their conscience of a real
guilt. Some wise sage once said that an innocent
man need-not defend himself. Why then should
the landladies when they haven't even been ac-
cused ?
Examinations are coming and a lot of students
will then be going.
When the whole staff takes a vacation at the
same tine, "the sky always fills with clouds.
Only five more issues of the paper, and then
we'll take the geratest Wolverine of all.
Some of the indifferent farmers probably woukj-
n't mind the gathering war clouds, if they brought
a little rain with them.
Canadian yachtsmen are planning to build li
America's cup challenger. If Sir Thomas comes
also, maybe he will find somebody he can beat.
The allies have demanded 2,000,000 tons of coal
from ,Germany every month. Some of these coal
strikers may think the government is using its
power to break the strike in this country.
Editorial Comment
ELIMINATING THE I. W. W.'S.
Students of*the migratory labor problem have
declared that the 1. W. W. and radicalism in gen-
eral is a symptom, not a disease. The discoveries
made by Arthur M. Evans, investigating conditions
in the mid-western harvest fields for The Tribune,
lend interesting corroboration to that belief.
The farmers of ,the 'great grain fields seem to
have discovered that the stack-burning, chickn-
ste'aling, sabotage-preaching harvest hand of the
past was to a considerable extent the product of en-
vironment. This environment of dirty bunk houses,
bad food, and general discomfort was the farmer's
fault in many cases. The American Legion, ac-
cording to Mr. Evans, has pointed out the error,
relieved it to a considerable extent, and thereby cor-
rented the disease which had the wobblies as its
chief symptoms.
;the boys of the legion brought back with them
too private life an appreciation of the needs and
requisites of gregarious mankind. They knew the
value of a well conducted canteen. They knew the
essentials of its organization and maintenance.
They knew the danger.s of discomfort and loneli-
ness to the human mind. They put this knowl-
edge to practical use. In Hutchinson, Kas., for
instance, the legion opened the convention hall to
harvest hands, put in cots, writing tables, and fa-
cilities for recreation and bathing. The result was
the most contented body of harvest hands ever.
known in that district.

The I. W. W. was deprived of his chief cause of
discontent and his chief reason for preaching sedi-
tion. A better class of men was attracted. Similar
conditions obtained throughout Kansas and Ne-
braska.
If the American Legion never did another thing
to justify its existence, this accomplishment' would
be enough to gain it fame. If the farmers have
found the solution of their annual harvest troubles, ,
let us hope they will cling to the knowledge and.
imhprove . upon it. Perhaps some day the remedy
for unrest may find its way successfully into the
city.-The Chicago Tribune.
Just as the Great Lakes country is promised a
supply of coal, the -minerg stop digging it.-Detroit
Free Press.
