their attitude by blaming the allied
powers for taking too much for grant granted

They say that he did not represent
the United States. Obviously he did
not represent the majority opinion in
Congress. As a party man he is in
the minority. The point is that he
did not attend the Paris conference
as the leader of the democratic party
in the United States. He attended as
the- representative of all the people of
the United States, of every American
citizen. Indeed, the president at
times seemed to feel he represented
more than the American nation, that
he represented humanity and civiliza civilization
tion civilization itself. Senators made no formal
protest when it was announced that
the president intended violating an
unwritten part of the United States
constitution to the effect that no pres president
ident president should set foot on foreign soil
in his term of office. Nobody arose to
warn Europe in advance that the ac accredited
credited accredited representative of the United
States was merely the mouthpiece of
a faction. '
What would have been thought by
the American people if Lloyd George
or Clemenceau, with a shrewder idea
of American politics than that pos possessed
sessed possessed by the president himself, per
ceived that Mr. Wilson was speaking
only for a minority and had declined
to accept him as the representative of
the nation? There would have been a
terrible outburst of indignation on the
part of the United States. Every
American, regardless of politics, would
have felt that he had been, personally
insulted. It would have been almost
a casus belli. It would have been suf sufficient
ficient sufficient to make the United States cut
every tie connecting it with the Al
lies and form a separate agreement
with Germany. In short, it would
have been an incredible outrage. fo

mighty good plows for a certain type of farmer.
rrhe plow had been invented by John's grandfather, who supplied his near neighbors, manufac manufac-turing
turing manufac-turing the implement in a crude, homely way.
Uohn's father had put up a little more modern factory and from it turned out plows enough .to
supply?the farmers of several counties in the immediate vicinity.
When the business came into his hands, John determined that it should be a monument'to father
and grandfather and something he could hand down to his children with pride.
Things went well for a time, but after a while the farmers of the part of the country in whi ch
Jones' plows had been sold were forced to change their methods and grow other crops than those
in cultivating which these implements were useful.
lAt first John was pretty badly discouraged by this turn in his affairs, but he soon made up his mind
there was a way out and wrote to the publisher of his favorite farm paper for advice. The reply
advised Jones to go to see the Brown and Smith Advertising Agency, in a not far-distant city.
John Jones never had advertised and knew nothing of advertising agencies, but he went to sec the
Brown and Smith people. They found out farming conditions still were favorable to the use of
Jones' plows, helped John to get dealer agents in that territory and prepared advertisements for
the farm journals and newspapers which covered it.
.That was only a few years ago, but now John Jones is making and selling more plows in a week
than his father did in a month or his grandfather in a year. And advertising has so reddced his
selling costs that even in times of high-priced materials and labor he has been able to lower-prices
without cutting down his legitimate manufacturing profit.
