Mainly through the efforts
of the state Republican com
mittee, the Republican party
in Oklahoma has been made
an active anil aggressive fac-
tor in state affairs. The ac
five work of the central com
mittee is causing correspond
ing activity in many parts of
the state and the result is that
we find Republican clubs lie
ing organized now for duty in
the 1!H6 campaign. Probably
tins Republican party in Okla-
homa lias not displayed such
pre-election activity since
statehood. But it is a fact that
today the party organization
is a militant political force in
the affairs of the state.
An effective organization is
possible, and there is occasion
certainly for plenty of active
work in every part of the
state. Those Republican clubs
which are being organized in
many of the counties, will un-
quest ioimnblv play no small
part in the 1916 election.
A PROBLEM FOR THE FU
The Balkans may prove a
stumbling block to the ambi-
tions of the Central powers.
Austria lias always considered
her relations with the Balkan
states ns primarily important,
and has jealousy watched all
diplomatic moves by other, na-
tions so far as the Balkans
are concerned. Russia, Aus
tria, Germany and England
have sought to dominate the
Balkans through diplomatic
Austria appropriated Bos-
nia and Herzegovina and de-
manded tho creation of Alban-
ia to offset the increased size
of Serbia, which resulted from
the Balkan wars of 1912. To
prevent any single Balkan
state becoming dangerously
powerful has been a chief aim
of Austrian diplomacy. A di-
vision of small Balkan states
was much to be preferred to
a combination of two or more.
Now that Serbia is overrun,
and part, of the territory held
by Bulgarian troops and that
part of Macedonia which Ser-
bia acquired in 15)12 now in
possession of Bulgaria, it
might be expected tlmt jeal-
ousy between Austria and
Bulgaria would begin to show
itself. If the conquest pro-
ceeds, it may produce increas-
ed friction between Sofia and
Vienna and hamper military
plans. But it is more reason-
able to surmise that whatever
latent jealousy exists at this
time will be put away until
tin1 enemy is disposed of, for
the presence of several hun-
dred thousand French and
British troops on their front
is sufficient reason for united
action. But after the war,
the Balkan question undoubt-
edly will he most difficult of
satisfactory adjustment, no
matter which side wins the
war. . „
If the proposed blockade of
Greece had gone into effect,
this country might have had
another cause of the kind that
appeals so strongly to some of
its statesmen for vigorous pro-
test. Since the war began
American exports to Greece
have jumped from .f4.0n0.0tKI
a year to $20,000,000. Unques-
tionably we would have resent-
ed bitterly any interference
with our nourishing war busi-
ness. And we would have
protested that the blockade
was unlawful because Greece
is a neutral country. Happily
that necessity has been avoid-
ed and unolher grave peril
vani>,jies from our horizon.

A Hint to Ford: Anything but
peace is likely to result from
Henry Ford’s cruise in European
waters if he does not restrain some
of tho enthusiasts who are now in
his traln.lt is all right to talk In
this country about bringing the
hoys out of the trenches by prayers,
faith and other forms of absent
treatment, hut once across the
ocean the tourists on the peace
ship who attempt in any manner
to organize a Btrike at tho front,
as one f>f his followers suggest,
are certain to get Into trouble.
Nations at war are Inclined to ho
peremptory In their attitude toward
anybody who beguiles their fighting
men. A strike on the battle-lino
undertaken for Ihe holiest of mo-
tives would end where It began
and there would he guard-houss
and perhaps firing suuuds. Wish-
ing Mr. Ford long life and con-
tinued prosperity, wo hope ho will
establish peace first and disorgan-
ize tho armies afterward.

That's what llenrj Ford Is fig-
With his son Edsel, under tho
/firm name of Henry Ford & Son,
the auto maker Is about to make
a furnt tractor that ’will lighten
the load of Mr. and Mrs. Farmer

With tho machine, Ford figures,
lnbor on tho farm will he cut in
half, and clerks and other city
farmers con do so without fear of
tho heavy manual labor that now
keeps them in tho olllces.
There will he no corporation to
make the tractor—each workman
will share In the prolits. Ford
plans to havo each workman spend
only four months In tho factory
tho other eight on tho farm. In
this way his expert mechanics will
get next to improvements that may
bo needed In the tractor from time
Profits will he distributed not
only among the men, hut also the
farmers who buy tho tractors.
While work will be started al-
most immediately on producing
the machines, they will not he
