ne greatest war in history, and the Peace Treaty, and its Itant tremendous social, economic and other changes, have tically turned the whole world upside down. They have wiped our former maps-altered the face of continents, changed status of territories everywhere-upset the entire world ation.

you know what has been added to our geographical knowledge of the world by the explorations of Stefansson, Stuck, and McMillan in the Arctic, of Smuts in Africa, of Rondo in Brazil? Do you know how commerce has opened new routes of communication, built great new railroads in Alaska, Australia, Africa, Asia, South America?
Do you know how many new industrial cities have sprung up in the United States?
Do you know the new Europe that has come out of the warwith all the changes in boundaries, the new nations that have been born, the internationalized cities, the territories that are under plebiscites?
And now, through a wonderful New Kind of Atlas has come to you the opportunity to keep pace with the world's changes.

O you know the old fable of the
grasshopper and the ant? Mr. J.
eorge Frederick tells the story of a asshopper of the business world who t only gets more than his share of the y of life, but who also excites the envy many wise ants by his success. We cepted this article because we hapned to know just one such grasshoprin real life. Perhaps some grassppers point morals as well as ants.
HE Cover of this issue of The Outlook, two articles and an editorial, comise The Outlook's tribute to the emory of "our greatest companion ". on this the anniversary of his birth. Richard Welling, a classmate of heodore Roosevelt at Harvard and a ew York business man whose interts extend far beyond those of the unting-house, draws a graphic picture Theodore Roosevelt as an underaduate.
In a letter from the late William gnew Paton to Mrs. Douglas Robinn, the poetess and sister of Theodore posevelt, readers of The Outlook are ven a most illuminating picture of e home life of the beloved poet of rovence, Frédéric Mistral, and of the vid impression which the career and rsonality of Theodore Roosevelt made on this distinguished Frenchman. istral was the foremost, perhaps, of at group of southern French literary en that devoted itself to the celebraon and preservation of the literature, guage, and traditions of Provence, uch as in our day a group of younger ets is celebrating the Gaelic literare of Ireland. Mistral was not only poet, but his "Mémcires et Récits Temories and Stories) is one of the ost delightful bits of autobiography in odern literature. He died in 1914.
HE third and last of The Outlook's questionnaires, "For Whom Will ou Vote and Why?" was directed leaders in business, finance, and dustry. The men of affairs who have swered are representative of the dest fields of human activity. On the Le hand we find men, like Samuel ompers, the veteran labor chieftain, d T. V. O'Connor, President of the ongshoremen's Association, and on the her a great engineer like John Hays ammond and a manufacturer and ader in public life like Charles Sumr Bird, of Massachusetts.
NY readers of The Outlook who have the bad habit of skipping articles the back of the paper will miss a aracteristic letter from George Ade they apply this nefarious practice to e present issue. Mr. Ade wanted to gister his vote in our poll of leading thors, but something or other delayed answer to our questions. We are ad that he has made "Better late an never" his motto..

It is a sort of paradox that the very ulk and vastness of this industrial war may bring it to a speedy end. At least he opinion is rather freely expressed a England that neither the public nor he strikers can long endure the conseequence of this stoppage of the counTy's industry. The leaders of the miners hemselves have admitted that the war sa desperate measure, and that they have not back of them sufficient funds o give out strike pay to the miners for any length of time.
The decision that put the strike into being was made by a final referendum to the local unions. The ballot resulted n a vote of 635,098 against acceptance of the recent proposals made by the English Prime Minister as against 181,428 in favor of acceptance-a majority against acceptance of 453,670. This was a surprising majority in view of the facts that the public had regarded Mr. Lloyd George's proposal as reasonable, and that not a few of the labor leaders, including Mr. Robert Smillie, who is at the head of the Miners' Union, have admitted that the idea proposed was reasonable. That plan was that the advance in wages demanded by the miners should be based on the amount of production, advancing from a fixed basis taken so as to insure some immediate advance with a reasonable amount of coal production and a continuing advance with increasing production. The actual issue between the miners and their employers has practically been reduced to the sole question of wages, and the advance demanded is about fifty cents for each shift of work, a shift meaning sometimes, but not always, a full day's work. The feeling has been strong in England that back of the demand for wages was a movement for nationalization of the coal industry, but in the earlier referendum to the rank and file of the

miners the disposition to put any such issue as this into the background was evident. It is more likely now that out of the contest will come a demand for such control by the Government as shall, not involve ownership but shall make it possible for the Government to forbid and prevent such devastating and

Mr. Lloyd George met the miners' challenge to battle with courage and challenge to battle with courage and calmness. He declared that the Government had done everything possible to avert the calamity and that the nation would resist with all its strength strength an attempt by force to drive it to surrender, and that there could be no doubt as to the issue. He pointed out that not only did the miners by their vote reject the proposal outlined above, but that they rejected also the Govern-. ment's proposal to submit the miners' claim for an increase in wages to an impartial tribunal, all parties to abide by the result. He added: "No one need underrate the damage which this strike will do, but no one will be dismayed. We have been through much more difficult times. With steady purpose and determination to do justice the nation. will overcome all its difficulties."
It was through coincidence and not as a matter of cause and effect that the beginning of the strike was immediately followed by a labor demonstration in London which resulted in something like a pitched battle between the
LENINE STRIKES THREE SNAGS IKOLAI LENINE is having his difficulties. True, he has established in Russia the reign of terror and menace to civilization known as Bolshevism. But he wants to establish it throughout the world, directing it everywhere against the stability of governments; he wants to create a world revolution.
The progress of this propaganda, however, has just struck three snags. The first is in France. The Socialists there have now, we are glad to say, acquiesced in President Millerand's policy in refusing to deal with Bolshevik Russia.
The second snag is in Italy. Surely there, if anywhere, seemed to be the opportunity for Bolshevism. Thousands of workers seized hundreds of factories, and will continue to operate some of them with more or less success as long as raw material holds out.
At the moment of the seizure Lenine issued a ukase directing his "Italian comrades at once to begin the revolution against their Government. The order had the opposite effect to that expected. The strikers were Italians. first, last, and all the time. They resented the foreigner's interference. The resulting vote showed a defeat for the Bolshevist-inclined workmen. Whereupon Lenine issued another ukase, declaring that the "Italian proletariat had been betrayed" and adding that certain Socialists "are guilty of sabotage against the revolution in Italy at the moment when it begins to ripen !" With respect to this the well-informed "Giornale d'Italia," of Rome, emphasizes an influence not sufficiently recognized:
Lenine and Bolshevism are serving
