Ilr. Karl Muck, the learned anil cul-
tured conductor of the celebrated
Iio.ston Symphony Orchestra, refuses
to play "The Star-Spanffltd Banner"
at his concerts. Not because he's a
(iertnnn subject, of course. It's be-
cause our national anthem is so dread-
able that the whole aspect of the war
may have changed in the twinkling
of an eye; that the Allies have the
intention of making Italy the great
battleground for the defeat of Ger-
many; and it certainly seems that
their opportunities on such a battle-
ground are very much greater than
they could become for a long time In
, the northern field. Germany may
have issued the challenge, that, being
accepted, will end the war.
News. may come at any moment
confirmmg this view, or belying it.
Hut the mere possibility set forth is '•«> days ago The Ford Gar-
r rr,"' - u"" mse
lends added zest to the interest With ,ume the following persons showed
which Americans are watching the their faith in the superior universal
coming of those great armies t
clinch on the Italian plain.

Another time-honored jfraft has
been swept away by the war broom
The government has put the
Butter board out of business. A quiet
li'.tle order issued by the food admin-
inartistic. He just couldn't; istration has accomplished a reform
think for a moment of incorporating
it in a program of German music. It
would be so uttedly incongruous, don't
you know? It would be a gross in-
sult to Art and Kultur.
"The Boston Symphony Orchestra."
Or. Muck explains, is a purely artistic
organization. We stand in the public
mind for certain very definite musi-
cal attainments. The playing of
merely national or political composi-
tions is not our business. Art is great-
er than any national considerations.
Isn't it distressing? Here we've
been going along, year after year
never realizing what a pitifully medi-
ocre piece of music our "Star-Span
«led Banner" tune really is. We've
been so ignorant and unkultured
to like it. We'v* been especially ap-
preciative of rts swell and swing since
we entered the war. We like to sing
it and we like still better to hear it.
It rouses the fire in our blood, it fans
the patriotism in our souls. It may
be "a poor thing," but it's our own
Il'i American. It's us. We love it
nearly as much as we love the old
flag that it celebrates.
And now, for the first time in our
history, an orchestra leader refuses
to play it in public concerts, when
every other orchestra plays it as a
matter of course. We can't have it
because it's a "merely national or po-
litical composition," unworthy to be
played from the same platform as the
compositions of Herr Wagner and his
Isn't it too bad ? Here's thy '*ioston

and everywhere the public will expect
its national anthem—just as a Ger-
man audience would e pect "Die
Wacht am Rhein"—and won't get it,
However, if we know anything
about this same American public, be
fore Dr. Muck gets through with it
he'll swallow his musical art and play
the anthem, or have every instrument
in his orchestra broken over his head
Americans will stand no such inso
lerue fiotn alien enemies.
"It takes three or four tons of pro
jectiles and explosives to kill a sin

inson. And here at home a man's

"The Germans beckon us to the
Italiai. front," says the military cor-
espondent of the London Times
. r .th e.-y hearty good-will we
>hall oblige them."
Here is an aspect of the Teutonic
invasion of Italy that is new to most
observers, particularly in ^America
We have been looking upon the Italian
situation as offering no possible ad
vantage to the Allies—as either 4
downright disaster, or at best, a hurt-
ful blow partly parried. But the sen
tence quoted has a ringing note of op
timism. Can it be that England and
France, m rushing their troops and
guns to northern Italy in large num-
bers, have really been doing so "with
a hearty good-will."
The New York Times, whose opin-
ion on military matters carries more
weight than that of any other Ameri-
can newspaper, is disposed to accept
this view. The German drive into
Italy, says the Times, may turn from
a calamity to a blessing. The rival
armies have been practically dead-
locked on the western front Britain
and France have gained steadily, but
so slowly that a definite decision there
might be a matter of years. But in
Italy the German army driving down
the Austrian alps may be met in the
open, may be defeated and routed, op-
ening the Central Empires themselves
to invasion and conquest. And the
fighting is much better in Italy at
this season of the year.
It appears that the Allies, in then-
Paris conference, have really decided
to transfer their main field of winter
warfare from cold, muddy Flanders
and France to Italy.
Thus, says the Times, it seems prob-
that has hitherto proved too much for
legislatures and courts.
It shouldn't ever be a difficult task,
anybody would think. The New York
World gravely remarks that there
never was any Elgin Butter board. It
was a monumental bluff. But it
A few Chicago men operating in its
name have long fixed butter prices
for the whole country. They would
decide how much 100,000,000 people
ought to pay for butter the following
week, then take a train out to Elgin,
file into a little office, file out again
and put some figures on the wires
And every dealer in America set his
Those figures purported to be re-
ports of bonafide butter sales. Per-
haps there really were a few tubs of
Gutter standing around the place for
window-dressing. But those men rep-
resented a speculative and oppressive
monopoly which wielded mysterious
3ower and successfully defied the law.
Now the board is no more. And
word goes around that dealers are
"lost" without its guiding figures to
tell them what to sell their butter for.
Here's a suggestion. Suppose they
base their prices no what they paid
for their butter.

Ot R CANDY
A Washington expert says that last
year we spent for candy two-thirds as
much as we spent for butter, two-
thirds as much as we spent for our
wnole bakery"product and more than
we spent for canned and preserved
fruits and vegetables. We consumed
about 1,200,000,000 pounds of it, con-
taining nearly twice as much sugar
as Italy uses for all purposes togeth-
er. And candy's only one of the many
forms in which we eat sugar. Really,
we can cut down a little without hurt-
.ar by becoming owners of the same

AN OLD MAN'S STOMACH
As we grow older and less active,
less and less food is required to meet
the demands of our bodies. If too
much is habitually taken, the stomach
will rebel. When a man reaches the
advanced age of 85 or 90, you will find
that he is a light eater. Be as careful
as you will, however, you will occa-
sionally eat more than you should and
will feel the need of Chamberlain's
Tablets to correct the disorder. TTiese
tablets do not contain pepsin, but
strengthen the stomach and enable it
to perform its functions naturally.
They also causo a gentle movement
of the bowels. adv
ROAD CONDITION DEPLORABLE
The inactivity of the County Com-
missioners relative to the road condi-
tion in the county is disgusting to say
the least. There seems to be no con-
certed action on the part of the board
to even take proper care of the roads
that have been built at a big expense
