KEIODEL THE 8HLF!
The all-too-handy national top
shelf yclept the Vice-Presidency
should be remodeled. The plan put
forward recently by Senator Edg

Of this number one was Impeached,

Theodore Rooserelt, was re-eleced
for two terms as Preaileitt. Eauh

John Tyler, who became president

Is significant when measured against
the status the "Chairman of the Sen

Washington. The duties of the office
are negligible. While nominally the
Vice-President has charge of the Sen

the Cabinet In reality he matters not
at all In official Washington. He has
no say In the appointing of Senate
communities, or In determining the
ipolicy of that body.
It he is anything more than an or

America cannot afford to pension

CITY AND CAMPUS
Our trade .with Argentina, Brazil,
Chile, Peru, Uruguay and Colombia
Increased only 13 per cent during the
first nine months of the fiscal year,
July 1, 1919. to March 3L 1920, over
the corresponding time of the pre
ceding year. Our imports from these
countries during this time Increased
about 48 per cent. The result Is that
a trade balance adverse to us was
created to the amount of 8:91000,000
during that time. ,
The United States is neglecting her
trade with the countries of the south
In her rush for European trade. The
trade of these countries Is ours by
all geographical and political advan
tages. The depreciation of the Atnerl
can dollar which causes the Ameri
can goods to seem cheap on the mar
ket, gives the live manufacturer an
opportunity to go after the trade of
these countries ftth more of a chance
of success than he would have in
keeping too close, as he often does.
