MOUNT ZiON NEWS.
We are striving to make the honor
ro- at Mt. Zion mean something. Any
child whbse name appears on the roll
has something of which to be really
proud. Here is the standard he must
meure up to: His deportment muat
not be less than 90; he must have a
general average in all his studies (-f
90, with not less than 85 on any one
svbject; and his attendance must be
perfect. This ecord entitles him Lo
be classed "distinguis'Led." If his de
partment is not less than 90, his at
twdance perfe, and his general av
erage on all studies 95 with not less
tan 90 on any one subject he is
May we not ask the parents to
an the roll herewith presented. The
ldren who have attained the high
standard set for them have a right
to the congratulations and interest of
The first grade, of course, can not
be graded by percentage, but a six
year old child who comes to school
e time every day for a month is
"carrying on." There were fifteen of
them this month! Of all the people
who attend Mt. Zion or any other
school, the mostiintereiting are the
beginnerst Have you evtr stood in
a school room and heard tweoty,.-nvc
or thirty six-year olds sing? If you
'have not, you've missed something
-*orth while. There is something
rwrong with any adult whose pulses
de not quicken in such a presence.
-What may not be wrapped up in those
little bodies? A great singer, a
sculptor, a poet, a statesman, a sur
gedn in the making! Who knows ?
He who stands in the presence of lit
tle children stands in the presence
of the future.

HUMOROUS DESCRIPTiON Of
From picking the stuffing out of a
wild turkey to kicking the stuffing
out of a wild football player, Thanks

a decided change, even within the ken
of the present writer, who, at that, is
quite old enough to gain a permanent
home among the mummies at the Me

Moulton writes in the New York Eve
ning Mail. There were days away
back in Puritan times when people
had a lot to be thankful for and en
ough sense to be thankful for it. It
is still true that a portion of our
great metropolitan population find
time to render thanks in the old-fash
ioned style, but the rah-rah Thanks

years now, and it seems to be gaining
In the old days they used to leave
a platter strewn with the bones of
wild turkey, and now it is the general
custom to leave the gridiron strewn
with arms, legs, ears and other more
or less important impediments.
The history of a Thanksgiving day
used to be set down by the church
clerk, and now it is set down in jazz
by the sporting writer, all of which
goes to show that civilization is mov
ing, though we can't always decide

Those were the days of real Thanks
givings. Peleg Prouty did not have
to go to a butcher shop and barter
his soul, his house and lot and his
Ford for a turkey. He kissed his
wife, Prudence, and the kids good-by
for maybe the last time, and set forth
for a wild turkey. He carried over
his shoulder an 85-pound blunderbuss
with a sprinkler attachment on the
muzzle which would scatter shot over
a fair-sized township and would kick
Peleg for a goal when it went off.
If the Indians got a bead on him first
it was good-night turkey, and if he
got a bead on them first the sprinkler
attachment enabled him to put the

he received it quickly. A noble red
man poked his arm through the win

hard-headed Puritan, Peleg would go
on with his dinner after throwing the

catching Mr. Shinnecock just below

The afternoon was given over to

But nowadays they gather in some

EDUCATION AND WEALTH
Does education pay ?
Assuredly! It pays its votaries in
character, health, culture, preparation
for vocations, and all that goes to
make up a well-rounded life. It fits
us to become law-abiding and God
fearing citizens of the great Repubiic.
Yes; education pays.
But let us consider, apart from its
idealistic trend, whether education
pays in dolars and cents. Tlie fact is
self-evident that an educated nation
is a more productive one, commercial
ly and industrially. The money value
of an education is being emphasized
in the insistent demand for specialized
and techinal training for specific vo
cations. The more education is dif
fused, the more specialized and tech
I nical it becomes, the more its costs
increase; but the national income in
creases with greater rapidity as a re
Some general evidences that educa
tion pays are found in the facts that
in 1909 we spent, in round numbers
$401,398,000 for public education. The
national income the same year was
28.8 billion dollars. In 1919 we spent
$895,000,000, and the national income
was 66 billion dollars. The increase
of expenditures for education of 122.9
per cent was accompanied by an in
crease in national income of 129.16
per cent. Education costs consumed.
a smaller percentage of the national
income in 1919 than in 1909, and for
an increased expenditures of $495,
000,000 there was an increase in na-i
tional income of approximately 47.2
billions of dollars.
Increasedl ability to produce wealth
results from education because of.
the three factors in the production of
material wealth (natural resources,
native ability of people, and educa
tion). Education is the Qnly factor
which is widely variable c;- susceptible
of improvement. Naturial resource
may be wasted but not increasea.
Native ability is a practical constant,
changing imperceptibly from genera
tion to generation. Education may
effect striking differences in a short

3. Mr. James M. Dodge, a former
president of the American Society of
Mechanical Engineers, calculated the
financial value of different grades of
education by comparing the earning
capacities of common laborers, shop
apprentice trained men, trade-school
graduates, and technical-school grad
uates. The money value was taken
to be that sum which at 5 per cent
interest would yield an income equal
to the sum being received as a salary.
