WILSON EMPHASIZES THE DUTY
President Wilson, in his message to
the Jackson Day dinner here last
night, said the "clear and single way"
to determine the will of the American
people on the league of nations is to
make it an issue at the next election.
The president's message said noth nothing
ing nothing whatever about a third term for
himself, neither did he say even by
'implication or intimation that he will
not be a candidate, as has been widely
The greater part of the message
was devoted to expression of his argu argument
ment argument that he considered it the duty
of the United States to join the
league of nations covenant, and to
telling why he considered the war not
really won until it did.
Another attempt to crush the new
nations of Europe would be made, the
president said, if the United States
Wm. J. Bryan split openly with
President Wilson at the Jackson Day
dinner on whether the democratic
party should make the league of na nations
tions nations an issue of the next election.
The president advocated submitting
the question, while Bryan conceded
the right of) the republican majority
in the Senate to dictate the Senate's
course, and declared the democrats
must face the situation and either ac accept
cept accept "such compromises as may be
possible" or make it an issue in the
election, which he objected to as
meaning 14 months' delay and then
success only if the democrats get two-
thirds of the seats in the Senate.
Reviewing the past and suggesting
a program for the future, Bryan said
he ventured to suggest "three new
propositions." They were:
A national system of roads extend

as the national "Peace Way," both as

states together in commerce and in intercourse

Initiative and referendum, which he
declared the democratic party might
well adopt as its "next great reform."

Bryan's prepared speech contained
nothing bearing on his ambitions to toward

before reading it he said he had noth nothing

should not listen to him with the

tion. proposition. We don't know how it will be
disguised; it is obviously illegal for
the state to make a contract to pay
any person ten months' wages for less
than ten months' time. It's true that
a considerable number of our public
officials do no more work in a year
than an energetic man could do in a
month or a week but they have to
be around to punch the clock on pay payday,
day, payday, anyhow. Mr. Hathaway's plan,
however, presupposes that the teacher
be paid ten months' salary for any old
time, even if the teacher be holding
down another job or' out of the state
half of the year.
How fair such an arrangement
would be to the people can be seen by
taking Marion county for an example.
The people of this county are as well
abel to pay as those of any county -in
the state. But the school board has
gieat difficulty in paying its teachers
now. A large number of our smaller
schools are taught five or six months
in the year. The remainder of the
year, the teachers of such schools
support themselves by other work. It
would be much nicer for the teachers
to have ten months' salary, of course
but are the people able to pay it?
That is something Mr. Hathaway and
other advocates of excessive education
never take thought of.
It is likely that Mr. Hathaway in
his proposition did not think of many
country teachers,, who have their
homes and other means, and teach
half the year to make extra money;
nor of the thousands of colored
schools taught by men and women
who are glad to get, and are well paid
with, forty or fifty dollars a month.
These people hardly exist for him or
the other highbrows, tho' they out outnumber
number outnumber them two or three to one. But
the people of Marion may mark it
down in their memorandums that a
law that will compel them to pay the
principal and teachers in the Ocala
school ten months' salary for eight
months' work will also compel them
to pay the negro teacher who for five
months in the year presides over
some colored school way out in the
woods ten months' salary for five
months', work. If such a system is
adopted, the full ten-mill tax won't
meet it. Linked up with the present
compulsory education law, it would
compel thousands of people to aban abandon
don abandon their country homes and move
into the towns. And it would be the
most rotten piece of class legislation
We can't understand why teachers
continually mourn about their wages
and try to cozen or compel the state
to say them wages as large as those
drawn by people in more lucrative
callings. If they can't make a living
at teaching, why don't they go to
work at something else? That's what
the rest of us have to do. 1

vision provision that no paper shall attack or
criticize a candidate without giving
him equal space to reply in. The Star
has always done that, without any
law, and it doesn't believe the law
can be eniorced anyhow, isut some
candidates have a way of sending in
a two-column article in reply to a two
inch criticism. So to be perfectly fair
all around, if we criticise any candi
date during the coming campaign, he
shall have equal space, line for line,
foi any reply he wants to make. But
if he cannot say all he wants to say
in the same space the editor uses, he
can have as much more space as he
wants at his own expense. Frinstance,
if we make a ten-line criticism of Mr.
, he can have a hundred lines to
reply in provided he pays for the
last ninety lines. If that isn't fair,
we should like to know what is.

Ocala for weeks has been facing a
milk famine ..and in our humble opin opinion
ion opinion our citizens should rally to the
cause and establish a municipal dairy
farm. A few hundreds or perhaps
thousand acres of suitable land on
which the right kind of milk cows
could be kept, and the whole carried
on by the best of dairy managers,
would, we think, prove a real boon to
the people of this city. However
large the margin left to be 'filled by
private dairies, this public resource
would ensure an unfailing supply of
the very best milk for the tender
childhood of Ocala, at least, and would
be a check on the raising of prices to
the prohibitive limit. The idea ought
to be acceptable to the masses of our
citizens in this time of high milk
prices; and of soaring public owner ownership
ship ownership sentiments. (Let's not we have
as much municipal trouble on- our

An imaginary army, conceived by a
handful of American junior officers,
was "thrown Into the field" overnight,
and for' days five crack German divi divisions
sions divisions just east of Verdun, in the
Etain region, were kept on their toes,
momentarily expecting an attack
which never came.
At a dinner table in a Coblenz cafe
overlooking the Rhine an American in intelligence
telligence intelligence officer recently told the
story of the creation of the mythical
"X army," as it was called. It ap appears

any time, and the Americans knew It;
but at that stage of the game the First
American army was devoting its ener energies
gies energies to driving the enemy out of the
Argonne forest and the hill country on
either side. So the mythical army was
created, in preference to a real diver diversion,
sion, diversion, requiring many men, to convince
the German commander that It would
not be wise to weaken the Etaln front
for the benefit of the Meuse-Argonne
Commanded by Captain.
Five fresh divisions had been placed
by the Germans on the Etain line.
These constituted, their last and finest
reservoir of available divisions. The
Americans realized that the minute

a danger point any or all of the five
divisions could be withdrawn, re re-.

divisions" coming from the battle
fronts, and that the appearance of the
fresh troops in the line west of the
Meuse would have a tremendous effect
on the American offensive.
The "X army" was. assigned to a
front from Bezonvaux to Fresnes.
From the morning of October 22 until
just before the armistice this army
"functioned." Capt. Charles H.Matz
of Hubbard Woods, 111., was command commander
er commander in chief; Capt. William II. Dear Dear-den

was chief of "troop movements ;" Capt.
O. W. Neidert was In charge of G-l,
or administration, and Lieut. H. T.
Griswold of Old Lynn, Conn., was
chief of artillery. The staff of the "X
army" were all members of the intelligence-section
of the First army,
and, of course, before beginning oper operations,
ations, operations, had obtained the consent of
their chief, Col. Willey Howell.
The wireless and the telephone were
freely used to convince the Germans
that the Americans were prepared for
an attack in the Etain sector. To
make sure that the Germans would
be able to "break into" the code used,
the Americans furnished them with a

One wireless station of the X

woods near Verdun and was called
"headquarters of the X army." This
station functioned until the end of the
game, all "orders" for the army going
out from this place by wireless. Soon
