The way to combat monarchy is not to keep peo ple in ignorance of it, but to use the best argument at hand the success of a democratic or republican form of jrovemment to refute the claims of he monarchists.

Education is the rem edy not silly restrictions. The latest bugaboo that is worrying congress is the spread of gambling. Washington is gambling mad, some congressmen charge, and point to the fmmense number of people who bet on th fHf and the ball games.

If the new law prohibiting yiewFpapers from publishing betting 'odtU n horse races, prise fighU and other contests of speed, strength or skill, fhouM be adopted, the news paper wh'ch. violated the law would lose its second class privileges, and possibly the publisher would be fined or imprisoned but it wouldn't stop betting. The laws regulating gambling will probably never be changed to permit it openly, but gambling will always go on, in one form or another. The man who takes a homestead gambles; the man who goes into business gam bles; the fellow who engages in a law suit takes a gamble, and a big one, too; the man or woman who marries gambles; if they have children and at- tempt to rear them properly, it's a gamble whether they succeed.

WOODKOl'GH ATTACKED Following the last session of the federal court at Chadron, there were pome Alliance men who criticised the attitude of United States District Judge Woodrough, who presided, be cause of his manner of handling caes vt violators of the liquor laws. Most cf these men, having a wholesome ( fear of being charged with contempt of court, voiced their opinions only in private. The general consensus if ( opinion was that Judge Woodrough ' looked too lightly on violations of this ' kind, and the least of the complaints made was that his attitude was un-J becoming a man charged with trying eases of this nature. F. A. High, superintendent of the state anti-saloon league, is not at all ( afraid to criticise openly. In a letter addressed to Attorney General Daugh- e-rty at Washington, v. c, ne manes the charge that the federal judge is favorably to the wets, and submits proof. His letter follows: Some time ago information was fur nished you to the effect that the atti tude of Judge Woodrough of Omaha, toward enforcement of the federal pro- hibit.on law, was unfriendly. Condition have not grown anv bet jf anythmf worw We fw, juUe Woodrough has contributed largely to this undesirable fttate.

Isn't this a fact that most of your worries are either imaginary or entirely over-rated in your imagina tion? The other day we were in a Ne braska City business office waiting for a interview with the proprietor. We had just been kicking to an acquaint ance about some inconsequential mat ter, the exact purport of which, to be truthful, we have now forgotten. But it was a complaint of some sort and oup remarks were being somewhat en dorsed by the man to whom we were talking. The door opened and in came three boys, laughing, chattering and pleased over the anticipation of a treat at the Mxla fountian. It was evident that they were untouched, for the most part by the goddess whom we call Dame r ortune. I heir clothing was not tailor- made by any means. They were clean and neat and they were happy. They evidently had no worries; if they had, tliey were kept under cover. They walked to the said fountain and sat down on the stools. It was then we noticed there was ?ome difference in their manner, a groping with the hands, a feeling for support which could not be visualized. They were totally blind. Three blind boys, never again to see the glories of the outdoor world, the faces of lowing relatives or loyal friends, and yet they were happy: and we who have the full enjoyment of God-given senses and who frequently ubue them are complaining about our "luck" or kicking because the world is not better to us.

American Legion Plans to Solve Unemployment Problems of Members The task of caring for the 000,000 unemployed ex-service men of the country will be taken over by the American Iegion, it was announced this week at a special unemployment conference at legion headquarters at Indianapolis. The conference, which was called by Commander John (t. Emery, was attended by national of ficers and members of a committee which had been appointed to investi gate unemployment among members of the lejion. Data gathered by the committee and presented at the meeting showed that approximately !00,0()0 veterans were out of work two weeks ago. It was shown that 21.5 per cent of the ex-service men are unemployed, and that those employed had experienced an average cut in wages of 32.5 per cent since the war. The findings of the legion's inves tigation was said to have prompted this action. President Harding was notified of the decision and instruc tion for taking care of the jobless world war veterans were sent to 11,- (()() legion post.v The instructions to the posts asked that every effort ; be made to secure employment, "for ! our buddies, and see that they have J fo 1 and shelter.
