i which isSiere involved. If no way
out of this muddle is to be found then
it can be classed as a successful at
tack on the free public school sys
tem, for which this republic Is sup
posed to stand. Every school board
director who voted with Loeb had a
hand in it. If Chicago wants to see
its whole public school system,
wrecked and thrown to politicians,
grafters and business Interests, let
Chicago go right along and say yes
to the board action of last week.
GREASER HEARST. Nearly
every day now Hearst, the Mexican
ranch owner who prints American
newspapers, puts over a scoop. None
of the regular American newspapers
seem to know as mucl about what
the de facto government of Mexico
is doing these days as Hearst, the
Mexican rancher. Our tip to news
papers who wish to be not scooped
by Hearst on news of the de facto
government of Mexico is to buy a
1,016,000-acre Mexican ranch.
FREE PUBLIC SCHOOLS. "Free
public schools" has been one of the
battle cries of the American repub
lic. If this nation stands for any
thing among the nations of the
world, it is for the right of children
to have an education and to get that
education inside the walls of schools
free from the dictation of business,
politics or religion. In the present
situation where the Loeb majority of
the school board has discharged 41
teachers whose records are efficient
for the sole reason that they are
members of the Teachers' Federa
tion, Chicago is watching the dirty
hand of business, the dirty hand of
politics and a dirty manipulation of
the religious issue in an attack on
the public schools. The interest of
the teachers is small and amounts to
nothing compared with the inter
ests of the school children and the
making of our future citizenship
PEARLS FROM ENGLISH PRESS
"It is a reasonable conclusion from
these facts that the attack supposing
that it should actually have taken
place has already been made."
The Disturbing Asquith
"Outside Dublin the country is
tranquil. Mr. Asquith and ' three
minor cases of disturbance are re
ported." Evening News.
Pity the Poor Dog of War!
"Two ladies obliged to remain in
furnished house, Bournemouth, till
let, offer free weekly accommoda
tion to middle-aged, healthy lady and
dog in difficulties through war."
The Common Cause.
"I was at the big general stores in
Market street the other day," said'
Slimfingered Joe, "when the whole
electric-light apparatus went wrong
and all the different departments
were as black at pitch."
"My word, what a bit o' luck!"
