HE poem of Rudolph Ruste came to

us in a letter from a subscriber of The Outlook, a lecturer on rural education in South Dakota. In the letter he wrote:

The other day, in my ramblings, I ran into a small school away out on the prairies that was taught by the son of a pioneer Norwegian minister. The teacher is a product of this environment, and is remarkably well educated. He told me he wrote poetry, and I made him show me some of it. As a result of this inspection "The Last of the Virgin Sod” was promptly forwarded to The Outlook, and as promptly accepted.

Mitchell's Conviction


N undisciplined army is a contra

diction in terms. It is not an

army; it is a mob. And where there is no discipline there is no freedom. Mobs are notoriously tyrannical, arbitrary, cruel. The greatest foes of liberty to-day in America are those who would turn the home into a boarding-house without even the obligation of payment of board, the school into a play resort, and the army into a mob.

Maintenance of discipline is therefore a service to liberty.

The question that arises at the close of the Mitchell trial is not whether Colonel Mitchell should have been tried, or even whether his conviction was according to evidence. The great majority of thoughtful and informed people are convinced that the maintenance of elementary order in the Army required his trial and conviction. The question is whether his sentence serves the end of discipline.

On that point there is a great divergence of opinion. Technically less severe than dismissal would have been, suspension without pay for five years is really severer. His status is that of an unpaid private soldier subject to army discipline at all times. He has received the Distinguished Service Medal and the Distinguished Service Cross of the United States, the Croix de Guerre and the rank of Commander in the Legion of Honor from the French Republic, and decora- (C) Harris & Ewing tions from the British and Italian Gov
