So the appeal of the special committee selected to devise ways and means to meet the situation and shortage in finances should meet wUh the approval and support of all of the patrons of the schools. The committee is not u:v HARDING REPUDIATED IN PENNSYLVANIA PRIMARY, j The defeat of the Old Guard in Pennsylvania, following the defeat of the Old Guard in Indiana, helps to confirm the fact that the Old Guard organization is breaking up in the states under the weight of the Old Guard administration at Washington. Alter was defeated for the nomina tion for Governor of Pennsylvania because he represents the same ele ment in the party and stands for the same policies tihat Harding stands for in the nation. Alter's defeat is a further confirmation of the fact ltnown to most political observers that the people at Targe have had all they will stand of reactionism, ineffi ciency, incompetency and alliance with special privilege which is so fla grant and notorious that even an Old Guard stand-pat Republican state like Pennsylvania will not longer en dure it. The vote for Gifford Pinchot, as in the case of Beveridge of Indiana, was not a vote for any affirmative set of policies, but a vote of protest against the Republican national administra tion, and, incidentally, a protest against theT Harrisburg Contractors' ring in Pennsylvania. The Pinchot vote does not mean that all the men and women who voted for Mr. Pin chot in the primaries are going to vote for him at the polls. Thousands of them voted for him because they bad no other means at this time of reistering their protest against eco nomic conditions brought on by the befuddled national administration. This element will be found behind the candidacy of John A. McSparren, the genuinely progressive Democratic nominee for Governor, when they cast their vote3 in November. They realize that Mr. Pinchot can only be elected by the support of the Old Guard, and that his election, brought about in such a way, would simply mean that he would be powerless to carry out most of the progressive policies that he may have. They realize also that John A. McSparren woud be free from any such alliances and entanglements, and would owe his election only to the progressive citizenship of Pennsylvania, without regard to party. ' There is no hope that the Republi can party of Pennsylvania as a whole ever will or can become a progress ive party. If Pennsylvania is to take her' place in the list of progressive states, it must be under a Democratic state administration. The net result of the Pennsylvania primaries is a repudiation of and a warning to a reactionary element now in control of the Republican par ty. It is notice that the days of blundering, four-flushing normalcy are at an end, and that the grip of the reactionaries upon their party organ ization is broken. It is fair warn ing to the reactionaries also that the worst is yet to come. already on foot to list those who de cline to meet the suggestions made by the committee and bring whatever influence possible to bear on them to assist in the financing scheme by paying a small weekly tuition.

THE FARMERS' GHEATEST FRIEND. The county agents of Florida are doing more right now, probably, than ever before for the farmer. At least that is the opinion of E. W. Jenkins, of the agricultural extension division, University of Florida, who has su pervision over the work of county agents in the counties of south Flor- da except those on the east coast. , According to Mr. Jenkins the prob lems worked on by these agents are too numerous to mention, but . he says the four most important are: The control of insects and diseases of farm, truck and grove crops; fertili zer problems, purchase, preparation and use; marketing, both buying and selling, and dairying. . From time to time the county agents hold farm schools. On these occasions specialists are secured from the state's college of agriculture. The specialists go right into the field, grove or truck patch with the farmers and together they study the problems to be found there. Schools for the control of insects and diseases on citrus and truck crops have been especially popular. Because of unsettled business con ditions and of the high prices that, until recently, prevailed for fertili zers, the agents have had a busy time advising farmers in the correct uses of different fertilizers. And their advice has been much in de mand. Co-operative marketing has been stressed and emphasized by the agents in all the counties for the last few years, especially since the prob lems, of production became secondary to those of marketing. In nearly ev ery county there are co-operative marketing organizations' which are buying the farmers' supplies and sell ing their products, doing both co-op eratively and saving money in doing 30. In Alachua county, Mr. Jenkins states, there are seven communities organized and functioning along these lines. Dairying has become a major proj ect in but a few counties. In the short time it has been emphasized in Marion county a co-operative cream ery has been established and is plac ing over a thousand dollars every week into the pockets of the farm ers. In Hernando county the . busi ness men say they could and would not do without the dairy industry. Sanford Herald. Ft r if t ! IW uMMN1fc'Mfr-"dWf '': Ml :-.

Passage of the compulsory attendance law placed such a sudden burden on the school financing system that it broke down completely, many schools were forc ed to close down 'after a few months and others raised money, as did Pa Jatka, by public subscription. The effects of the law, however, might not have been so disastrous had it not come at a time when sala ries were at the peak, costs of books and school supplies at the very maxi mum and with . providing of new structures almost entirely out of the question, necessitating rental of ad ditional quarters at considerable One should call a spade a spade, but under stress of spading the gar den he may be permitted to add a few qualifying adjectives.

A lurge Texas steer turned Paddy's market, a couple of blocks west of Times square, Into ft topsy tuny scene of frightened shop pers' and peddlers, overturned push carts and damaged vegetable stocks. The steer used a young woman's red parasol as an excuse for abruptly quit ting a herd on the way to an abattoir. The young woman even more promptly dropped her parasol and escaped. When the steer plunged through Paddy's market the air was tilled with oranges, fish, shoe strings, cups and saucers, neckties, lettuce, potatoes, shoes, bannmis, newspapers and Mrs. Mary Smith. She was hurled upward when a pushcart hit her.
