Why Germans
Must Be Fed
A Delightful Ride
Herbert Hoover. From Eight View-
points. Argues America's
<By Henry Wales)
PARIS, March 22.—Herbert
Hoover has given out a statement
on "Why ave we feeding Ger-
"From the point of view of my
Western upbringing, because we
don't kick a man in the stomach
after we have licked him," he says
in answering the question.
"As a governor I would say it
was because famine breeds an-
archy and anarchy is infectious.
Infection from such a ccsspool
would jeopardize France, Great
Britain and thus involve the
United States.
"As a peace negotiator I would
say it was because we must main-
tain order and a stable government
in Germany if we would have some
one with whom to sign peace.
"As an economist. I would say
that it was because the German
people must have food in order to
maintain a stable government and
get back to production. Other-
wise, there is no hope of their pay-
ing the damages they owe to the
"As a business man. I would say
it was because we need these dam-
ages more than any other form of
"As a humanitarian, I would say
it was because we have not been
fighting women and children, and
we are not beginning now.
"As Secretary of War, I would
say it was because we desire to re-
turn the American soldiers home,
and it is a good bargain to give
food for passenger steamers on'
which our boys may arrive home
many months earlier than would i
otherwise be the case.
"As the American treasurer. IJ
would say it was because it saves
the United States enormous ex-'
penditures in Europe in support of
idle men and allows those soldiers
to return to productivity in the
United States.
"As a negotiator of the armis-j
tice, I would say it was because
we are honor bound to fulfill the
implied terms of the armistice
that Germany shall have food.
"Let us not befog our minds
with the idea that «t ll we have
done for German is to lift the
blockade sufficient to allow her to
imporj a limited amount of food
from any market she desires.
"Our face is turned forward, not
backward. We and our children
must live in the world with these
70 million Germans No matter
how bitterly we may feel, our vis-
ion must stretch over the next one
hundred years and we must write
now into history such acts a? will
stand creditably in the minds of
our grandchildren that we may not
ourselfes have fostered growth i of
cancer in the vitals of civilization." .
The Transcript can testify to the
truth of Mr. L. J. Edward's re-
marks in yesterday's Transcript
on the Scenic Route," for, as
guests of Mr. and Mrs. M. M.
Furray, in their "Senaca." the
writer and his better-half were
given a delightful ride on Sunday
over that Scenic route.
The first thing noticeable, how-
ever, was the need of road drag-
ging on all the roads leading to
the river, and across the river in
the bottom. The county commis-
sioners have greatly improved the
road from the I. G. Short corner
to the bridge, claying it so thor-
oughly as to make an almost
"hard-surfaced" road, but it needs
dragging to be kept in first class
condition. All roads leading from
Norman to the Short corner need
dragging, in places being in a
pretty bad condition. The bridge,
too, needs the steel work tighten-
ed up and a number of boards put
in on the floor, for in places it
seems shaky; not dangerous, but
sort 'o teetering.
The road in the bottom across
the river needs considerable work
/in the way of dragging to make
comfortable riding, there being
numerous deep ruts in it.
But when you strike the bottom
of Adkin's hill and begin to go up
it you certainly strike a fine road,
and from there to the Big Pasture
the ride is delightful. As far as
you can see is spread out a glor-
ious view of one of the best coun-
tries on earth, every acre of it
tillable and covered with wheat,
oats and alfalfa fields, with plow-
ing progressing for corn and cot-
ton. The wheat, oats and alfalfa
all look fine and promise a most
abundant yield, and, with the big
price for wheat, the farmers over
harvest. That locality is certainly
j the river will certainly reap a rich
I '.he garden spot of the world,
j And then we were given a ride
] on the Cleveland side, and found
the wheat and oats and alfalfa ful-
! ly as good, promising abundantly.
From the Ten Mile Flat comes re-
- ports of one of the best prospects
this county has ever had.. Es-
pecially is the large acreage of
wheat looking fine, and thousands
of bushels will be raised.

When o'er the fair fame of friend

The shadow of disgrace shall
fall, instead
Of words of blame or proof of
thus and so,
Let something good be said.
Forget not that no fellow being
May fall so low but love may lift
his head;
Even the cheek of shame with
tears is wet
If something good be said.
No generous heart maj^ vainly
turn aside
In ways of sympathy; no soul so
But may awaken strong and glori-
If something good be said.
And so I charge you by the thorny
And by the cross on which the
Savior bled
And by your own soul's hope of
fair renown,
Let something good be said.
