Now Touches Life and Inter
est o£ Every Citizen,
He Says
l*itlsburgh, Feb. 13. United
States Senator P. C. Knox, who with
Will H. Ways, chairman ot the Re
publican national committee, was a
speaker at the banjuet of the
Americus Republic Club, here last
night, made a pica for a new for
eign policy of the American govern
ment, because, he said, questions of
foreign policy now touch the life
and interests of every citizen. The
banquet marked the beginning of
Senator Knox's Presidential boom,
started by the members of the
Americus ClutS.
"in March, TJI3." Servitor Knox
said. "American diplomacy was a
diplomacy of realism guided by high
ideals in its practical care for na
tional interests. Since March 4.
I§l3, American foreign policy has
been turgid, opportunistic and va
cillating; the diplomacy of this ad
ministration lias been a diplomacy
of transcendental aqd visionary
idealism, reluctant to be guided by
facts and lukewarm in its care for
national interests.
, "It is a gra\e matter that even
the pressing home problems of re
construction due directly to the war
are being delayed and quite inade
quately dealt with, while the ener
gies of the administration is pursu
ing far off ideals. If there ever
was an occasion when the Ameri
can government should have had a
highly paternalistic policy, that oc
casion was now, for facilitating our
return to peace Conditions and espe
cially for the care cf the demobiliz
ing fighting men and the systematic
provision of opportunities for them
to return to civil employment. In
all this side of the plain, unglamor
ous home work of 'reconstruction
we have seen, instead, the adminis
tration virtually burying its head in
the sand in sudden return to the
easy negligence of laissez faire. The
practical administration of domes
tic affairs is allowed to drift by
neglect while the practical admin
istration of foreign affairs is hamp
ered by vague idealism.
"The solution of our national
problems needs the untrammeled
national thought of the finely
American south. I earnestly hope
that the time is at hand when po
litical action upon our common na
tional problems will no longer fol
low lines of latitude which political
thought have in fact obliterated."
Chairman Hays devoted much of
his address to the lives of Lincoln
and Roosevelt associating both in
many events of the country's his
tory. ,

public today by four Cutholio bish

j committee of the National Catholic
I War Council.
While favoring, in the interests of
health and morality, prohibition of
I child labor and reduction to the
] smallest practical limits of the ern

| committee urged equal pay for wo
' men doing equal work with men. It
; declared also lor insurance of work

enough to tide over such periods,
fof abolition of monopolies, for con

incomes and excess profits, for co
operative merchandising in necessi
ties to reduce the cost of living and
for government-assisted colonization
of unoccupied farm lands by* de
mobilized soldiers and sailors.
Capital vs. Labor
As a measure outside its present
reconstruction program but of value
i in solving the problems of capital
: and labor the committee urged grad

represent the Catholic hierarchy of
America in general direction of war
work In this country and overseas.
Unrest a Menace
Declaring that "the deep unrest
so emphatically and widely voiepd
throughout the world is a most se
rious menace," the bishops held up
"social justice and a contented peo
ple" as the only safeguard of peace.
The authors of the report dis
claimed any attempt to formulate a
comprehensive scheme of recon
struction. Their recommendations,
it was stated, were confined to "re
forms that seemed to be desirable
and also obtainable within a reas

principles which should serve as a
guide for more distant develop

the military forces, the report in
dorsed the "suggestion of Secretary
of the Intermr Lang that discharged
men should be given an opportu

be assisted by government loans to
establish themselves as farmers. It
