November 7 :
After a quarter of a century of school teaching I
have decided the sort of parent that makes the ideal
school parent, lie has emerged out of a welter of all
and sies, dispositions and characters. Here he is:
lie never comes to school unless he is in a reason
able frame of mind. If the teacher has sent home a
report or his son had made bitter complaint ajrainst
teneher be waits until he can keen his voice even
he appears in the office to discuss the matter.
lie is as quick to praise as to blame. That is a truly
distinctive characteristic, for many blame us and few
praise us. lUil the yond school parent drops Ihe teacher
a note 1ellini- her how pleased h
iji-ess and how "fateful he is to her for taki
interest in the little rascal.
He always appeal's at the school functions and iiinn-
aces to say a word of appreciation to the teacher of his
youngster and to the principal of the school, lie at
tends the parents' meetings and .offers his assistance
when workers are needed, lie helps raise the funds for
the phonograph and heads the commit ;c that asks for
additional play space and science equipment for the
school. Jlo finds time to attend to school business.
When the school is under fire he speaks for or
auainst with authority, because be has stayed close 1
the school and knows. He takes the side of the children
regardless of anything else.
lb' is among those who ask for modern methods and
equipment and understands the needs for both, although
he went as a child to a small district school when- the
water pail stood on a bench with a tin dipper hanging
above it. and where the teacher was some one who had
some schooling and was pausing 011 his step up the lad
der to make his next term's tuition.
lie can remember this and yet be willing that Ihe
children of this generation have a better chance. He
is willing even to the extent of attending meetings to
push his idea and paying taxes to support it.
He is the sort of parent who dislikes gossip and w ho
silences it by saying. "I'll step in and ask the teacher
about this on my way down 1on tomorrow morning.
1 don't believe it and I'm going to give her a chance
to speak for herself. Oh, well, of course, if you don't
want mc to I won't unless I should hear the story
He is the sort of parent who says to the leachcr.
' i 111 going to trust you and believe in you until you
make me do otherwise. You arc the teacher and you
are on the spot. 1 am the parent and I'm at a distance.
You must do with the child what you think is best. I
will support you with all my power.
"I expect you to remember that this child is mine
and that he is endowed with my characteristics and ani
mated by my ambitions. 1 know you will try to inter
pret him through what you know of me, ami that you
will ask mc for help when you need it. 1 know you
will work with me sympathetically and yet wisely, be
cause you have the training and the knowledge and the
desire to be of service. Count on me."
Oh. yes, I meet him every once in. a while.
DON'T BUTT IN
President Harding has spoken to Ihe point through Senator
Lodge when he asks the senate to strike out the provisions in the
Xaval Appropriation Dill relative to the calling of an economic con
vention and a convention further to reduce armaments. It is the
province of the President to execute the laws that congress passes
and as he is the chief executive it is not the duty of congress to out
line his administrative policies.
It is impossible for a President at all times to take the legisla
tors into his confidence, especially so in regard to international sub
jects. There are occasions when a premature announcement of plans
and purposes can work great harm hy arousinu jealousies one against
another between nations with whom diplomatic measures are being
conducted. Nations as a whole do not differ essentially from in
dividuals. When one is seeking to harmonize a situation, bring about
amicable relations between two or more individuals who are more
or less at odds he must pave the w ay by approachnicnts now to one
and again to another, lest alarm and distrust be aroused instead of!
confidence and trust being born. I
The President is the head of the administration. In him the
people have reposed a trust and he becomes the representative head'
of the nation. A senator is the representative merely of the residents '
of one political subdivision of the I'nited States. The executive is'

' Picnilo Mussolini. Italy's new Prime
Minister, who, 1111 1 il nine years at-ro
was known as a Socialist, has bemm
1 his (.-mire ol' ollice by inevorably lay
ing the ax to Hie root ol all public
'service inst iiui ions owned 01 lnaniiK
' ed by the state, such as railways,
; tclciih'ini'S, telegraphs. Idler and par
j eel posts, which show a deficit, and
even some others which are more or
h ss successfully run.
The railways in Italy are perhaps
'ihe most striking example ol the dif
ficulties and weaknesses of state tnun
j ageiuent. During 17 years of such
I control, declares Professor I'go An-
eona, an expert on financial questions,
I they have ceased to be the largest
Producers of national profit, and are 1
'today virtually owned by the railroad
I men. Hcfore the greal war the rail- j
! ways brought in from 411.(11111, nun to I
I 50.0(10,1100 lire a year, which might be
'taken as interest on the live and a
I half billion lire which had been spent
on constructing them. The deficit in
j 1!)21 was over a billion lire, alfhoug'i
the price nf tickets is now three times
' what is was. and it is said thai tin'
1 iU lic it for '.)22 will be still greater.
I In fact, says I'rol'essorAncona, the
net result of government management
is disorder on all lines, deficiency ol
material, deplorable condition of run
ning stock, service deterioaled, and
discipline entirely wrecked. The
number of employees ami their wages
have enormously increased; the aver
age rate of pay having risen from
2(100 lire a year before the war lo
over la. oiio lire today. To this should
be added I lie urea' ly increased num
ber of strikes and the fact that theit.;
on the railway, which to amount to
about 10 million lire a year, have now
risen to over one hundred million.
Five billion and a half lire were spent
in 60 years in order to constiuct the
railways; two and a half lire have
been spent during the 17 years of
state ci-ntrol merely to enlarge Iheni.
Professor Ancona says further that
these troubles are due in large meas
ure to the fact that the Italian rail
road lines run through sections of the
country each with widely differing
economic, social and climatic condi
tions, thus creating a complicated and
difficult, system impossible for 1 1n
state to manage successfully. Politic
al interests have been permit led too
much inlluence in deciding where new
lines were to be built.
Another great drawback lo the
prosperity of Italian railways Profes
sor Ancona says, is that the workers
have insisted on an eight hours day,
for all employees, even for those
whose duty consists in opening and
shutting a gate at a level crossing
once or twice a day. This eight hours
question has added 40.000 or 50,oo(l to
the number of 1 lie personnel, and
something likely 500 million lire to
the expense of operation. The only
remedy like to bring in a reign of
economy and efficiency, acocrding to
this financial expert, is the radical
one of gradually ceding to different
private companies the lines which, as
one great whole, have been such a
failure in the hands of the state.

The outsanding feature of the market for bonds during re

vestment. Notwithstanding that this d.mund has resulted in a sub
stantial advance in prices for bonds in general, the present
outlook indicates a gradual trend toward the level which pre
vailed some years ago, particularly as applied to issues of
the better grade, which still yield a liberal return.
It is doubtful if it will be possible for several years to pur
