VO. XXX SEPTEMBER 14, 1922 No. 19 m
PUBLIC RECOGNIZED AT LAST. 7
Even the most severe critics of the Interstate Commerce Commission the
will approve its recent ruling that ensures a law rate for the shipment of 1ev
surplus war materials destined to build good roads. Good roads are the
arteries through which the nation's wealth must travel.
The Issue was raised by the shipment of material by the Bureau of ito
Public Roads, in the United States Department of Agriculture, to State at
The material was shipped as ,'constractor's" equipment, thereby giving
it the advantage of a low rate. The railroads objected. They wanted the d
States to pay "less-than-carload rates" on various items in such shipments NQr
even when the aggregate filled a car.
The donteltion af lhe nuru theAve
The contention of the Bureau was that since none of the material is
new, and that as it is all intended for use in road construction it should A
have the low rate allowed for contractor's equipment.
The Commission upheld this contention and the result is that on one ing
shipment alone from Schenectady, N. Y., to Boise, Idaho, $720 was saved ber
to the State and consequently to the taxpayers.at
It would seem this is not a partlcularly happy time for the railroads two
to make a fight against public interest. There is no reason why the lower a tl
rate should not prevail and every reason why it should. plac
True, improved roads and the development of the auto truck mean
a reduction in the railroad short haul, but that is a natural development, TI
and the time has gone by when it is considered wise to smash machinery first
because it speeds up production. man
PROHIBITION THE MAIN ISSUE. to tl
Prohibition will be a dominant issue in not fewer than thirty States f
this fall, and results will be watched with more than usual Interest.
The wets contend they are certain of victory, while the drys openly
state that if no other force kills the hope for "light wines and mild beers"
It will die at the hands of the bootleggers who are making too much
money under their present system to permit the traffic to become legalized.
New York and New Jersey are all "het up" over the issue, which also
will be paramount in all of the New England States, and In Missouri.
Pennsylvania will face the question, as will Maryland, Delaware, West
Virglania, Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Colorado, Ohio, Wisconsin, Wash.
$nston, Nebraska, Michigan, California, Oregon, Utah, Louisiana, Texas,
Oklahoma, and Florida.
Ssmrasylvanta wets pretend to believe they are sure of victory, but Mr
recent sweep of the Progressive Pinchot points the other way. Inter
It would be difficult to predict the outcome in many of the States, pany,
but it is to be hoped that whatever be the verdict it will result in an ton a
obedience to law.
A decided dry victory will most emphatically express the will of the Hebei
people, and unless the bedrock of American government is to be dynamited LeBow
the sooner the expressed will of the people is obeyed the better. rence
And it will not hurt if Uncle Sam himself leads the way on the one or
two of the seven seas he is now managing to navigate.
RICHARD LLOYD JONES SAY8 RADIO WILL FILL TENTS AND HALLS. ateri
In most towns by this time the annual Chautaaqua is over or soon

thee are the big get-together festivals of the American people.
I talked recently with a radio expert and enthusiast who enumerated ntere
at length the inestimable benefits, both recreational and educational, of ae
this marvelous little mechanism. Rather boastfully he said, "Radio will sier.

He predicted that the itinerant musician will stay in his studio and Home

wll need only to open up their receivers and a perpetual Chautanuqua is
theirs at their firesides.
In answer to all this, I said, "Well, we are still golng to have our fains."
S "Yes," he said, "that's because the fair is a thing to 8EE, not to hear."
"That I replied, "is why the Chautaaqua is as secure uas the fair. The
eye is a greater educator than the ear."
We learn more by msing than by hearing. The concert violinist puts

Oratory is still sood when reduced to type and put in a book. But
oratory that sways with inspiration and convinces most has the
