hog, a soulless, conscienceless dum-
my, an oppressor. If this be inevita
ble, God grant that I die a pauper.
Personally, I think our government is
to be rebuked for having given a lis
tening ear to capital in allowing an
overflux of population. Through im
migration capitalists hope and dream
of cheap labor through hunger and
Our institutions, hospitals and ho
tels are eyen denying the real Ameri
can the right to live by not employ
ing them and giving the work to
Europeans. It is a shame and should
be openly denounced.
This country is rapidly nearing war
with itself, because it has become a
nation divided against itself through
hunger and cold. The handwriting
is on the wall and from any angle
you may read. It has but one mean
ing: War, death, hell and destruction.

THE SCHOOL PROBLEM. Thank
heavens the taxpayers have such a
paper in existence as The Day Book,,
which helps to share their burdens.
Why under the sun is it necessary to
cut the salaries of the teachers? I
wish I was the deciding factor. There
would be no more use for squabbling
in the public schools. Just one sen
tence would be my verdict and I
think it would be the unanimous de
cision of all the taxpayers who ap
prove of the public schools. "Fire
the whole blooming outfit from Ella
Flagg Young down to the smallest
member." They have proved them
selves incompetent to handle the
schools. Do they think we are blind?
Remember we are not living in the
14th century. Have the taxpayers
not been paying taxes to keep the
schools in existence and many of
them, including myself, have been
doing without the necessities of life
to meet our taxes and then to have
the wool pulled over our eyes while
they say "raise the taxes." Let every
taxpayer resent the suggestion and
let "the junket-committee" return the
thousand and more dollars they took
from us taxpayers and help meet the
deficit. I refuse to be made the goat
any longer. I read in the Herald of
today that Jenkin Lloyd Jones sug
gests that "We get Sister Haley on
their trail." That's the main trouble,
and we all know that there are en
tirely too many "sisters" in the pub
lic schools so why appoint any more?
Our schools are a farce because they
are in the hands of Rome and they
are the avowed enemies of the sys
tem. So is it any wonder that we are
the laughing stock of the neighbors?
Put none but patriots on guard.

THE RIGHT WAY. It is a blame
good thing that we have a man at
the head of our government who has
brains, patience and good judgment
enough to ward off a calamity which
would ruin the nation, the same as
other nations have been ruined by
Spain, France and Rome were once
great What are they now? Cruel
and unjust war has diminished their
power when peace and fairness
would have kept them standing on
To the victor belong the spoils, but
the greatest builders are the ones
who build, not destroy. To them be
long the spoils, the credit and the
right. Plunder, murder and decep
tion have always been the stumbling
block to the right civilization, and the
uncivilized and greedy have always
mastered the game.
Does not the story of Jesus Christ
and others of his type prove that? No
man ever tried to talk and act for the
multitude and for the good of hu
manity but what he obtained an
abundant supply of enemies.
The right civilization is a great way
off, but it's a mighty good thing that
we have some real heads working
with all their might to advance it.
"An eye for an eye and a tooth for
a tooth" is a blamed poor doctrine to
bring about justice and it has kept
