The stibjecl of vocational training in the public schools is at
tracting al the present time the attention ol a great many people and.
,n our opii ion, rightly so. We do not wish to harshly critise the old
ime school curriculm, bul at the same time in the light of modern
day thoughl there seems to have been something lacking and voca
tional training seems to be thai something. We have trained our
school children to the idea that if they would lie diligent in their
studies, that they would go oul and lie doctors, lawyers, ministers,
and maybe some day president of the United Stales. We ignored
the fact that for every one that embarked in a business or profession
and made good, ten immediately upon leaving school, embarked or
later found themselves in some form of manual labor, with little
chance of ever graduating from the ranks. A student whose head
was filled with nothing but higher mathematics was hut half equiped
lor the duties id' forge or lathe. In these days of high tension in
the business world employers have little time and less inclination to
teach boys a trade. The apprentice system does not produce satis
factorily results. The skilled operator is himself driven to the, ut
most to hold his own job and the instruction he is able to yive an ap
prentice is perfunctory at the best. The result is a generation id'
round pegs in square holes: hoys naturally bright and chuck full oi
efficiency micro! es, compelled to remain mediocre in ability and with
a relative earning power. It's all wrong- and the system of y<>ca
tional training is brought forward to meet that wrong. The driving
force of vocational training is and will he adaptability; the problem
of instructors to study the boy's natural bent and inclination and
help him to develop a Ion:; the line he is fitted for. The average boy
is naturally a human dynamo, chock full of energy and determina
tion. One Heeds but to watch him at play to discover that. Teach
him that all work is honorable and useful and that efficiency is one
of the first stepping stones to success, 1 hen train him along the line
of work he is interested in and for which he shows an aptitude, and
yon have a splendid American citizen in the making. There are a
few trade unionists, mostly of the old school, that seem to fear in
vocational training' a condition that will threaten the virility of the
organized lal or movement As fare as that goes there has never
been any innovation in industry that was nol met with wails of lam- .
entation by the Jeremiahs of the flock. The advent of the linotype
was hailed*as tin Eoredom of the typographical union. Yet the typo
graphical union was never stronger numerically nor had better work
ing conditions than it has today. We would fare rather a boy of ours
was l'iited for his life work in the public schools than to receive no
such training at all. "We would take care of the business of incul
cating the principles of union in him. We would not destroy our
present day universities because capitalistic influences had crept
into control, we would change those influences, retaining the univer
sity. Vocational training j s to be as much of a fixture in the coining
order el' things as is any of our modem machinery. Isn't it far bet
ter to te i. !• it iii the public school* which are essentially ours, than
to leave it to the trade schools established by the Otises, the Kirby's
and the Pansys?
Some of the lumber manufacturers of this state are making a
great outcry about a boycott supposed to he maintained by building
tradesnn d and contractors of San Francisco against the finished
products of Washington mills. They say they can't break into the
San Francisco markets because the horrid union men down there
won't let the contractors use their products and mutter something
about bringing the matter before the department of justice as "it is
clearly in violation of the Sherman Anti-Trust Law.'' Boiled down
the facts as we have ascertained them are about as follows. The fin
ished product plants in and around San Francisco have been thorough
ly unionized by the aggressive building tradesmen of the Golden
Gate. The product of those mills bear the union label stamped upon
ii to show that it is the product of union Labor. Building tradesmen
in and around San Francisco do not attempt to discriminate between
the products of different plants all using the union label, but they
do emphatically say that union made and labeled building material
shall be given the preferance over material made in non union or
"open" shops, There's the rub. Wshington manufacturer manu
facture entirely on the "open" shop principle, that is, an "open"
shop "closed" to union men. Show us any lumber plants in Wash
ington operated on the "open shop" plan in which there enough
union workmen to make a noise. The Washington manufacturers
prefer their "inalienable American right" to pay their workmen
$1.75 or '.' in ,i day or whatever they darn please. They do not pro
pose to I c "dictated to by a lot of union agitators and walking dele
gates." San Francisco unionists say to the .Washington manufac
turers virtually this: "we'll be glad to use your product when you
can show that it is union made; until then we'll handle our homemade
product which we KNOW is union made because we see the label on
it." There isn't a member of organized labor anywhere nor a sympa
thizer that will condemn that attitude and the Washington manufac
turers aic going the wrong way about it to stir up public sympathy
The progressive members of the legislature are standing by
their guns manfully in the Pace of shot and shrapnel! from the stand
pat ranks. Voting as a unit on all progressive measures that have
aris. r, thej have managed to put the standpatters thoroughly on rec
ord before the public. They may not be aide to dip their hands very
deep into the appropriations barrel, but if they stand true to their
pre-election pledges, as they show every evidence of doing, the peo
ple will know and will appreciate. The day of the pork-barrel poli
tician is passing.
"Big Bill"*Haywood in his Everett address, which was mainly
a tirade against trade unionism, said that the A. P. of L. adherents
bad bet i assess ng themselves $480,000 a year in dues to lower their
wages. This assertion was only a trick of words and no one knows
it ! etter than J>ill himself. Suppose organized labor had received no
increase in wages in the last derail.-, what then? Unorganized, com
mon labor such as works in our sawmills receives no more today
than it did ten years ago. Taking Bill's argument, where are the
Lawrence strikers any better off through their meagre increase
brought about by reason of their great strike: Are they not paying
a to lower their own wages 1 Of tho shorter work hours, better
sanitary nnd housing conditions, better protection to life and limb,
happier through the efforts of trade unions. Bill was strangely silent.
Mill bas the common fault of the demagogue, i. c., to magnify fjtnlts
and mimii'y virtues.
We should worry about the Federal Income Tax, now a part of
our constitution. The minimum annual income that can be taxtd by
tbe Pedi ral govi n ment is $5,000 and that lets ns out with some to
•pare. Lei John D. do it.

Gems In Verse
SILENT and full of stars, the awful
ill U Yen
ooking down on slumber.
There is not
The breathing of a solitary breeze
Upon ihc check of whiter It Is still
As when the shapeless attributes of earth
Slept in the night of chaos, and the wings
Of a ninsl heavy darkness hung upon
The unformed solitude The trees stand up
Without tin- show of motion, and the stars
And the uprising of the holy moon
Make visible the silvering of frost
Among their naked boughs Kvcn the tnll
Arnun I their trunks Is fleshing, like the
of fairy multitudes The snowy tops
Of nil the hills nre quivering with gems—
The Jewelry of winter
1 have gaged
Upon the things around me until nil
The crossness of reality IS gone.
And 1 can heii my fancy with the thought
Of a most glorious vision, I can cast
'the veil of earth SSlds and send my gaze
Into the land of fairy and look through
Groves of unearthly beauty. I can sco
riie golden pillars nnd the fretted roof
iif wizard palaces, ihc grottoes where
The elfin Spirits of ths unseen world—
The, winged nnd mysterious messengers
from tie: tar land of spirits—shake their
Aral while Wings in the moonlight. 1 can
Tli" lew led patbw* ', where a magic
Until chnnri a the dnSeemly pebble to a
The gray sand into gold.
There cannot be
A vision lovelier in the llowiry time
Of die revealing scring nor in the sun
And glory of the rummer It Is ns
The blissful paradise of Yemen's sons—
The flowery gardens id enchanted Gul.
-John Oreenleaf Whittler.
FROM "THE POET."
rpHE gods talk In tho breath of the
They talk in the shaken pine
And till the long reach of the old seashore
Willi dialogue divine.
And the poet who overhears
Borne random word t hey say
Is the fated man of men
Whom tho ages must obey.
T ATE lies the wintry sun abed,
A trosty, fiery sleepy heud;
Blinks but an hour or two ami then,
A blood red orange, sets again.
BEFORE tiie stars have left the
At morning in the dark I rise
And, shivering in my nakedness,
By ihc cold candle, bathe and dress.
pjLOflß by the jolly tire I sit
To warm my frozen bones a bit
Or, with a reindeer sled, explore
The colder countries round the door.
VVfHEN to go out my nurse doth
Me In my comforter and cap
The cold wind burns my face and
Its frosty pepper up my nose.
JJJLACK are my steps on silver
Thick blows my frosty breath
And tree and house and hill and
Are frosted liko a wedding cake.
—Robert Louis Stevenson.
T OOK up nnd not down. There Is never
In the dust and debris of the street.
The God who doth love us hath hung high
The crown that makes glory complete
TO ACS the east, not (he west. You are
x not at your best
With your eyes set on stars sinking low,
But eaclt rising star's ray, with its prom
ise of day,
Will kindle your heart to a glow.
A WAYSIDE GRAVE.
OUIt upland journey wound Its way
Past hills that wore tho green of
The dogwood starred the shad
The light breeze rocked the pine tree tops
Far off we saw the village spires
And Cutiering smoke of household fires.
Hut here of voice or tool no sound
Fell on the cloistered hush profound.
Sudden I drew my bridle rein.
Dim, shining out from moss and stain.
Alone amid a fallow field
And half by brier and weed concealed.
I law a rough stone rross that bore
(mc little dear home name; no more
Borne heart had ached, some house had
The desolate hunger for Its own
When hollowed out this narrow Brave,
They laid, whom love lm I died to save.
But could not. one whose name had been
To her own people "Jt.srphlne."

Of n pale purple blue plume

While near and far the frangrant day
Was golden glhnmerin,; with May.
AT THE DOOR.
» TIIOt'fHIT myself indeed secure,
So fast 'lie door, so firm the lock;
J Rut, 10, he toddling comes to lure
X If y parent ear with timorous knock.
My heart were stone could 1 withstand
The sweetness Of my baby's plea,
Thnt timorous, baby knocking and,
"Please let me In; it's only me."
1 threw aside the unfinished book
Kefc.'irdb ss of Us tempting charms.
And. opening wido the door, I took
My laughing darling in my armi.
Who knows but In eternity
I, like tte truant child. shall wait,
The glorh s of a life to be,
i.e.ond the Heavenly Father's gate?
And will that Heavenly Father heed
The truant's supplier ting cry
As at the outer door 1 plead,
