WHY NOT REQUIREMENTS FOR CONGRESS?
Before a young man is permitted to begin the study of medicine, the I
law, the church, or in fact most of the other professions, he must pass an
examination to prove himself possessed of certain educational require
ments regarded as a necessary basis of his practice in the event of his
entering actively into the calling of his choice. This is wise, but it would
be wiser if those who seek to enter the most important, the most difficult
of all professions, the profession of government, had to have a basic knowl
edge before they were eligible to run for public office, particularly of a 4
legislative character. Every man who wants to run for Congress, for
example, should be compelled to have as a background either four years
of experience on a farm or a thorough course in some agricultural college.
The man from the city without a knowledge of farming is unfit to legislate
for the American people. The excuse offered is that he represents the
territory and the people that elect him, but as a fact he cannot represent
any section efficiently unless he knows the farmer problem. He must vote
on tariff matters, on agricultural legislation, on measures that have almost
a direct bearing on all classes of our citizenship, urban, suburban and
rural, and he does so, as matters stand, with nothing to guide his action
but a certain amount of horse sense. Horse sense is well in its way, but t
we have had too much of this horse legislation. A river cannot rise higher 1
than its source, and legislative enactments never will rise above the intel- p
ligent knowledge that lies behind their enactment. Let us have some
standard of requirement before a man is eligible to run for the state
Legislature and for Congress. 3
HOMEY PHILOSOPHY FOR 1922
When the six cylinder's only hittin' on four we're good an' sore. Up
goes the hood and the old wrench and pliers are dragged out. Soon she's I
bussing along again an' we settle back happy. If the old wagon happens
to be an eight or a twin six, we'd throw a fit if every cylinder didn't fire.
How many of our own cylinders are missing every day? Even the slowest a
of us, the low-geared boys, have quite a few not firing and they're trying L
to get the old boat up the hill under all sorts of handicaps, when a little pl
examination an' overhaulin' would shoot as up on high. D
" * Poem d
Uncle John sin
GRADUATIN' DAY mi
The graduatin' days have come, the brightest of the year. Take off
yer hat, an' smile out load, an' don't forget to cheer. It's good to see 'em
gradate, 3eV' llke their mother did back there when Dad played hookey,
like a good-fer-nothin' kid. There's nothin' else fer them to do-they've
mastered every test, they've got to step down off the stage, to make room
fer the rest. There's others comln' on the tmil--a'pushin' that away; it
keehps the old world rollin' round, in circles, as they say. It allers makes pe
me happy like--to watch 'em, as it were, an' see 'em get diplomye-never in
dreamin' what they're fer. They'll splunge into the sea of life, an' grab at
every straw, an' lots of 'em will be surprised, the worst you ever saw!
God bless these noble boys an' gals-I say it from my heart-they're startin' 6
out with smiles an' tears, each one to do their part. There ain't no better or
eargo to load on the Ship of State than a band of these here children-on
the day they graduate. The Sea of ife is deep an' wide-it's miles an'
miles to land; it ain't the same as "Jurdan's Banks," where us old fellers
stand. They've got to pierce the clouds of Fate, an' breast the murky t
wave. Lord, stick around an' watch 'em close, an' see that they behave.
