MAKE THE WAR GRAFTERS
From week to week, United States
Senator Arthur Capper has a signed
editorial in his paper, Capper's Week-
ly. Topeka. Kas,. on some outstand-
ing issue of the day. The issue of
January 24th has the following,
which cannot but appeal to every
thinking man. for it is the Truth if
ever the truth was spoken:
The new year was ushered in by
banks and business houses with more
liberal bonus-giving to employes
and workers than we have ever
known in these liberal United States.
1 have wondered a little what ex-
service men who gave up their jobs
in 1917 for $1 a day and the finest
chance to get killed the world ever
saw, and 'left the fellow at home with
every opportunity to prosper and
make progress, while their own
world either stood still or abruptly
ended in a crash and darkness? What
must these men, who are just getting
back in harness, have thought of
this wonderful exhibition of prosper-
ity when the checks were being pass-
In April 1917 this country entered
into an agreement whereby certain
of us were to stay safely at home and
do what little we could, while others
were to leave home and country and
plans and opportunities, for a peril-
ous voyage overseas to offer their
lives in our behalf.
On the success of their daring' all
our lives and property depended. If
they hadn't succeeded an American
dollar would now be worth little
more than a German mark. And in
that case our present situation., can
better be imagined than realized.
Many of these boys never came
back. Others will be human wrecks
the rest of their days. Still others
will go through life handicapped by
serious and restricting disabilities.
Thousands lost their chance at an
education or a chosen career All
have had some sort of setback. Not
one has been a gsittier, all things con-
Those who did come back whole
hav given from eight months to two
years out of the most vitally import
ant period of their lives to us, to ac-
cept board and expenses and a gun
with which to kill or be killed.
While these men with the guns
drew their dollar a day and came
home poorer than they went to find
their government grant of $60 too
small to buy them a one-piece outfit
of civilian clothes—ftiose who stay
ed behind enjoyed a business pros
perity which has had no parallel;
The question now is, have the
?'iv .1 'le- re;iUv (fulfilled Our
part of the contract? Are we bound
to do nothing more for the fellows
who have all lost spinetning they
can never regain, to risk life nnd-all
for us? ,
It is a burning question, or ought
Kings, possibly, can afford to be
Ungrateful, or let us say, unapprecia
tive, but republics should not. Least
of all the greatest of republics, the
one we live in and are a part of.
1 am not sure this is not a national
matter rather than a question for
states to consider. Congress wants
to be generous. A $30 a month ser-
vice bonus would aggregate more
than a billion dollars. It ought no*
to be beyond us to fry this much tat,
or more, out of war contract frauds,
and there would he a poetic justice
in making sucn use of money, but it
is probable that the Letter plan, and
one more likely to be of permanent
benefit, would be for the government
to lend a nKicient sum on easy
terms to the ex-service ma-) with
which he could buy a farm or a home,
similar to thj plan ptoposed in the
Morgan bill, and so help him to get
a real start.
In favor of a plan that will benefit
every ex-soldier instead of a limited
number, which is the chief objection
to the Mondell and Lane measures,.
We cannot repay the man who did
so much for us. That is a debt which
cannot be settled with any amount
of money. But we should go the
limit in doing everything that may
be done for the benefit of the men
who pledged to its their all, realizing
even then that as a nation and a peo-
ple we shall always be their debtors.
Norman High School News
Helen McCoy, Senior Representative
From a start of about a dozen
members, the Parliamentary Debat-

Hobby of Ben
Owen, He Says
"I have always wanted chickens,
but could not have them until I set-
tled down here about eight years
ago." said Ben G. Owen, famous uni-
versity athletic coach and amateur
chicken raiser, while showing off his
flock of White Leghorns last week.
"I have not taken any prizes at
shows because I am always so busy
in the fall that I can't put out a win-
ning football team and a team of
prize chickens at the same time. You
see I have to get studen help, and
I haven't been lucky enough to find
a boy who understands scientific
chicken raising to take care of my
feathered team while I am away
with my other one on football trips,"
The White Leghorn strain with
which Mr. Owen started his flock
was produced from a famous prize-
winning stock that has taken fancy

Last year, however, he took up the
production of utility chickens and
believing that the best is always the
cheapest, got new blood from the
well-known Pennsylvania poultry
