THE DAIRY AND TOURIST CROPS
Senator Harry Bricfeeman of Bemidji is taking the
right view of the primary needs of this section of the
c?untr?r^rhenlie maintains that the two important
crons are dairying and tourist crops.
"The first needs and to my mind the most ompor-
tant," said Mr. Bridgeman, "are the needs of the farm-
ers. The second in importance is the development of
the tourist business." He has hit the nail on the head,
and if he exerts his efforts toward this end, he will find
cooperation at every turn of the road.
With all sections of the state pulling in thes ame di-
rection in an effort to bring people to our beautiful
summer resorts, the increase in this crop will be tre-
Perhaps no other city can boast of a more popular
summer resort than Bemidji, as beautiful BircWmont
Beach looms up head and shoulders above them all. If
we are to take care of more people it is going to become
quite necessary to build another hotel, of less preten-
tious proportions, perhaps, but one that will take care
of the overflow and those who are seeking quarters and
accomodations where the rate is less than at Birch
mont. The rate at Birchmont is extremely moderate
for the high class of service rendered, which is evi-
denced by the fact that many of the same people re-
turn here year after year. A large number of them
make their reservations for the next year, before they

room for several hotels, which, to our mind, will be
erected as rapidly as the tourist trade demands.
The dairying crop is growing. It is the all year
round backbone crop for the farmer and the business
man. Any legislation that can be enacted.to hasten the
development of this great industry will be most wel
The returns will be an hundred fold.
MERCHANTSNOT STORE KEEPERS
Bemidji is blessed with merchantsmerejstore keep-
ers are fast becoming a thing fthe past. This fact is
being recognized by visitors even more quickly than by
our own residents.
What Bemidji now seeks is not more retail business
houes, but more business for the establishments we
have and that is just what the merchants committee of
the Civic and Commerce Association is planning to ac-
complish. They are goirig about it in a manner that
should gain the confidence of not only our own people,
but those who look to Bemidji as their trading center.
The John Wamwnaker slogan"NOT HOW LITTLE
BUT HOW MUCH CAN YOU GIVE FOR THE DOL-
RAR" seems to be, what the Bemidji merchants are en-
deavoring to do. The adoption of such a policy will
bring outside business here, as well as hold that trade,
which should of right, come here and remain here.
Telling the whole truth about their merchandise in
their advertising will beget confidence and the public
will watch their announcements with interest.
The Pioneer is especially desirous that its many read-
ers peruse the advertising columns as diligently as its
news and editorial columns and will make every effort
to hold the "truth in advertising" as the most essential
A BOY WHO WILL GET ON
A freshman in the University of Michigan has asked
permission to drop the required gymnasium training
because he works eleven hours every night in a factory
to put himself through his college course, according to
a statement in the New York Herald. He goes to itihe
factory at 5:30 o'clock in the afternoon and quits at
4:30 in the morning. In the remaining thirteen hours
of the day he must find time to sleep, sit through four
hours of classroom instruction and prepare himself in
Compared with this youngster of 18 the average
tired business man is a lotus eater. If this boy doesn't
'crack under the strain he will come out of college with
his will steeled .othe undertaking hard jobs. He can
never be afraid of work becausse he will never have

WHAT DOES AMERICA NEED?
.1 December 21, 1922
.To- the Editor:
You ask us, "What America needs?". TWat is asy for a per-
son to tek, who has studied economics and the history of the pre-
vailing systems of the whole world since the dawn of civilization.
I, say .th whote worlds because the linderlying causes that produce
Bo' much "unrest in America are the same forces or system that
shakes the* whole world at the present time
That system is^The Wage and Profit Systema system that
permits a "few to benefit at the expense of the many, a system, if
you please, that always'breeds, masters and slaves a few who at-
tend to the affairs of government and speculate in human life and
the- great .mass- of workers, the backbone of every nation, who toil
daily for* a mere pittance as compared with the amount of wealth
produced by these same workers. Some of these workers Who have
seen the possibilities of a greater life for all humanity are the pres-
ent day agitators, the rebels against a system of society, that has
left' the masses in bondage.
The greatest issue before the whole world today is "the great
awakening of the toiling masses who demand more of life and on
the other hand those who have been successful in gaining control of
the great industries and natural resources of the world, who would
in many instances, grind the very life blood1
profit's for their own enrichment."
The logical outgrowth has been two classes- Intolerance prac-
ticed by one class or the other has always led to extremes, and, so
today, we find our dear America as the hotbed of industrial and
political strife. Let me suggest the remedy, "A greater education
in the intelligent use of the ballot, he world's most effective wea-
pon.*' To every person the full product of his toil, no more, no
less, and then, and only then, will, we come to the fuller realiza-
tion of what happiness and life really means.
