SUBSCRIPTION Br Carrier la Chicago.
30 cents a Month. By Mall, United
States and Canada. 3.60 a Tear.
Entered as second-class matter April
Jl. 1814, at the postorriee at Chicago,
111, under the Act of March 2, 1871.
EASILY SETTLED. No -sense in
that court-martial at San Francisco
getting stuck over the question as to
whether or not Commander Cowan
of the aviation school is a flyer and
deserving of the extra pay. The mat
ter, can be easily decided.
Let Cowan fly!
Let him go up as high as Lieut.
Hollis Muller did. Or let him try the
looping as Lieut Taliaferro did. Mul
ler got the record for height and got
dem&ted. Taliaferro got Mlled. But
the head of a school ought to be able
to do better than his pupils.
No less than eight lieutenants have
been killed at that San Diego school
within the past 30 months, six of
them under Cowan's "schooling." If
the head of that school deserves
$113.63 extra per month as an ex
traordinary flyer, let's see him fly!
CHILDREN'S RIGHTS. Mother's
clubs discuss what to do with the
child's "idle" hours," forgetting that
the normal child never has an idle
hour. Ambitious parents crowd
books, games and occupations into
young lives which should be merely
empty and free.
Thus they rob the child of his ini
tiative and originality.
The "neglected child" often be
comes the big man of his community
because he was not over-amused, and
not over-supervised,, as a baby. He
had liberty to choose what he would
do, and time to plan how he would
Every human youngster has some
little rights of his own, chief of which
is the right to shift for himself part
of the time.
HOW THEY ELECT IN ASHTA
BULA. Looks as if Ashtabula, O.,
has slipped one over on some of the
so-called progressive cities.
Ashtabula has just held an election,
which resulted in the choice of a
council composed of members of
each political party in the proportion
of their strength In the electorate.
Each voter marks his first, second,
third choice, etc., on up to seven. Any
man who gets one-seventh of the
votes is elected. In other words, if
one-seventh of the voters agree on a
candidate for alderman, he is elected,
regardless of ward boundaries.
Doesn't this beat the ward system
In this case only one man was
elected on first choice, so they count
ed the combined first and second
choices and elected a couple more;
then the combined first, second and
third, and so on.
It took all night and part of the
next morning to decide on all seven
councilmen but this delay could be
nded by use of an adding machine.
The United States has announced
it will not jc;in in any Interference
with the internal matters of China.
Let 'em eat chop suey if they want to.
Dr. Brady in his "Health Talks"
says coffee is a healthful beverage.
Carry the news to Battle Creek.
Two New Jersey girls have written
to the mayor of St. Paul to find them
husbands. That's what the men of
New .Jersey get for turning down
their women at the polls.
A California university student has
established a new record for holding
of breath. It is to be noted the stu
dent is a man.
