Think It Over.
A Bemidji business man said yes-
terday that although in many cases
he could get better service for his
money if he sent to the large cities,
lie never sent an order out of Be-
midji that could be filled here. This
man believes that it is better for
(himself as well as for the other fel-
low to accept slightly inferior service
*nd have the money stay here than
to send it away and reap merely a
"My business in certain lines does
"not amount to much, "he said, "but
that little stays here. It is the
'Littles' that count and go to make
prosperity. I want to see my neigh-
bors prosperous. It is to my advant-
age also for then they will be able to
assume some of the tax burden that
I have to carry. It seems to me if
every Bemidji business was conduct-
ed with the idea of keeping at home
every dollar possible and making it
work for a bigger and better Be-
midji, we would all gee a noticeable-
Increase in business.'4
^hat sounds reasonable.
i A College Education.
In the fall and in the spring many
people are asking what is the real
Value of a college education. They
ask why it is that a college education
is said to be good for a man or
women when college graduates are
not worth as much when they grad-
uate as many men and women of no
education at all.
Dean Vance, of the college of law
at the ni\ersity, has answered the
question ai the following words:
"All these wordy efforts tofixa
cash valuation upon college training
are equally tolish and entirely ignore
its real significance in social econo-
my. I once stood in a great steel
plant and saw an immense steel in-
got, weighing upwards of two tons
Parted away alter the long and ex-
pensive process bj which it had been
changed Horn pig iron to carbon
of little \alue to steel of great value.
"In that state it cculd not be used
for anything It was not even pret-
ty to look at and was quite too heavy
to play with. A foolish person
might say that a tackhammer was
of more value than that steel ingot
because you could make some use of
a tackhammer, but not of the ingot
but almost anyone would detect the
folly of such a remark. While that
ingot was not useful in its present
form it constituted material out of
which it as possible to make the
most valuable and useful machinery, i
"A man just graduated is not
worth anything in particular in most
cases. He is not at the moment of
graduation as useh'l as the giocei's
boy but he is splendid material trom
which can be made the most valuable
k-nds of workers tor the use and ben-
efit of society
"Every college graduate should re-
cognize that generally speaking the
increment of value due to his college
training is merely potential. He is
merely splendid material ready to be
made into something that is splendid-
ly worth while. It is as foolish for
him to expect to receive high wages
during the pi ogress of being fashion-
ed into something useful as it is for
the business man to expect him to be
something useful before life has tak-
en him and fashioned him for speci-
