Feared By Italian
Prominent Railroad Authority Fears
Europe CannotSliakc It Off Amer
ica Can And Will Rest Govern
ment Is Least "
Rome, Juno 30 (Correspondent or
Tin- Associated Press) Dr. MalToo
Piintiileoni, who is considered nn au
thority on systems of governments,
sees great danger for Kuropoan na
tions in the war time tendency to
ward government control of railways,
lie says that after the war the United
States will shake off such "parasitic
ideas." In an interview with The As
sociated Press, Dr. Pantaleoni said:
('overnment ownership of railways
is only one of the many a mictions
sure to bo imposed upon this poor
old Europe after tho war. With the
war the government has become al
mighty with us. The government
now does everything and after the
war its encroachments will be nppall-
ing and bring us near to ruin."
"The United States is run on dif
ferent linos, it was founded on other
principles, and while it may lie har
assed after the war by the bogies of
government control, it will shake
them off. The country is too young
and strong. Parasitic government
control ideas attacking it will be no
more than lice on a big. healthy dog.
"If I had never before been con
vinced of t ho futility of government
centre this war would certainly have
convinced me. I am now sure Hint
tho less government a nation has the
better it is for the prosperity of its
nconlo. A government is always
robbed, always too late in what it j
does, is always betrayed by its em
ployes. "The war waste in Italy lias noon
about eight billion lire. It is a well
known fact that, privately owned
German railways have always paid (
greater dividends than those owned i
by the government there. In France :
the Western railway, as controlled j
by the government, is a miserable
and costly failure.
''One of the arguments advanced
in favor of government ownership is
that thereby a nation gets a steady
class of employes who pay debts, raise
families, live modestly, and do their
work for relatively small pay. This
is a fallacy, too. The whole world is
ruled by chance. The greatest wealth j
of the world, its crops, depend on the
weather. If vou give a class of peo
ple in a nation a sure thing, remove
their chances ot money loss, jou u",
eo at the exnense of the other poo-
rile, of tho farmers, for instance, who
must take great chances. In other
words, you increase me risivs m
majority for the benefit of the minor
ity." "Besides, this class of people with
the sure thine on small pay wind up
bv not earning what they are paid. It
is not their individual fault but that i
of the system.
"I repeat, and with the experience
of many years of Europe behind me, :
that everything a government aoes
must be' badly done, and the degree
of badness depends on the average
capacity of the nation doing it. The
post-otrice and government telegraph
and telephone systems of Europe are
monuments to inefficiency and waste.
"The prosperity and welfare of the
whole world in the near future do
" ponds upon the fight which honest
and intelligent people make against
the follies of government control."
BRITISH WOMEN MAKE
GOOD AS BANK CLERKS
London, May 27 (Correspondence
of The Associated Press) War ex
perience in the employment of women
as bank clerks has convinced British
bankers that women are able to keep
business secrets quite as well as men.
When women were first admitted to
emrdovment in banks the British di-
rectors and managers feared that
some of their customers might with
draw their business believing their
financial affairs might become the
subject, of gossip. "It is gratifying
to think." says the Banker's Mag

A GREAT IDEAL

Of the twenty seven books which

irft. Paul. Most of his epistles were
written to congregations which had
come into existence as the result of
i his evangelistic, efforts. Some few
were written to individuals with
whom lie had become associated
' while pursuing lit.: missionary labors.
I Those are among the shortest of his
epistles. But one of his shortest
epistles is that winch ho wrote to the
Church at Philippi. It was written
while ho was a prisoner at Rome,
awaiting the decision of his case by
Cesar to whom he bad, as a Roman
citizen, appealed against the ijlogal
t reat ment which he had received at
Philippi, and at Jerusalem. While

Before he closes the epistle, he
gives expression to two great ideas
(1) tho supreme aim. and end of life,
and (2) how it is to be attained. Here
are his words: "Not as though I had
already attained, either were already
perfect: but I follow after, if that I
may apprehend that for winch I am
apprehended of Christ Jesus. Brethren
I count not myself to have apprehend'
ed: but this one thing I do, forgetting
the thitrvs which are behind, and
reaching forth unto those which are
before, I press toward the mark, for
tho prize of the high calling of God
in Christ Jesus. In those words we
have the grandest and noblest ideal
that any human soul can set before
it. To attain to that ideal we need,
s St. Paul tells us, (1) unity of pur
pose in life, and, (2) the faith and
fellowship which Christ alone can
give us. We have a saying that some
men are gifted with so much versatil
ity that they are: "Jack of all trades,
and master of none." Such men may
bo useful men, and generally are, but
they seldom, as we say, "get any
where," because they lack in unity of
purpose. They belong to that class
of men we call "drifters." Few in
deed are tho men who in their better
moments do not give some thought
to the ideal which St. Paul sets be
fore us. But in far too many cases
there is not that -unity of purpose
which is the essential of the faith
that makes it the very goal of life;
the one thing above all others to be
sought and striven after. Too many
people make the mistake of confus
ing ideas with ideals. Ideas are good,
that is if they are good ideas. But
