R In another column, Hon. Ro->
B bert Crain offers an opportunity
to our farmers to improve their
m cattle through breeding to regis-
H tered short hom bulls. Mr.
E Crain has Upon his farms in
1 Charles county the finest herd of
H cattle to be found in the State.
I It is easy for him to dispose of
I every bull upon his farm at more
I than three times the price he is
I offering them to the farmers of
I Charles and St. Mary’s counties.
I But his inate desire to aid South-
I ern Maryland prevails, and he
I makes his offer from a public-
I spirited rather than a financial
I motive. In these days of low
■ priced tobacco, our farmers need
I to turn their attention to stock
I and other lines of agriculture.
I It costs no more to raise a short
I hom beef than it does to raise a
I scrub. ‘ The former doubles the
I latter in weight, and accordingly
in profit. Any wise farmer will
I avail himself of the opportunity
offered by Mr. Crain. We regret
he has but twenty bulls to offer,
but this number will tend to start
a few of our farmers along right
lines, and others will profit by
I ' their example.
State Reorganization
Governor Ritchie’s plan to re
organize, reconstruct and consoli
date the various executive and
administrative departments of
the State Government has now
assumed definite shape. The sur
vey of the State departments as
now constituted has been com
pleted and with it there has been
submitted a tentative plan of re
construction, whereby the eighty
five agencies or units that now
comprise the State organization
1 will be consolidated into twelve
departments, each of which will
have supervision over one or
more bureaus, the latter covering
the entire field of State activity.
Undoubtedly many abuses and
(much waste of money and energy
have accompanied the tendency
in recent years to create commis
sions, many of them composed of
three members, when it is a well
recognized principle that the best
results are obtained under a
single administrative or executive
head. Quoting from the report
on the present system; “The
multitude of executive agencies
in the State not only tends to re
sult in duplication of effort and
to involve the State in too great
an administrative or overhead ex
s pense. but also makes it exceed
ingly difficult for the public and
the General Assembly to compre
hend the present structure. Citi
zens desiring to take up matters
with the State Government are
bewildered. An organization
made up of eighty- five units en
gaged in administering the ex
ecutive functions of the State can
not only lay no claim to simplicity
but cannot be properly controled.
Adequate supervision of the ac
tivities of all of these agencies
by a single individual, the Gover
nor, is a physical impossibility.”
Governor Ritchie’s next step
will be to submit the plan of re
organization to a carefully select
ed commission of representative
Maryland men. who will study it
carefully and then recommend to
him the plan that, in their judg
ment, is most suitable for sub
mission to the General Assembly
of 1922.
On this commission every coun
ty in the State is represented by
its ablest men. When one reads
the list of those whom the Gov
ernor has selected—big men for
a big job—he is at once impress
ed with the Governor’s sense of
the importance of the work in
hand and of his determination to
trust it to none but the best minds
of the State.
For St. Mary’s he has selected
Dr. F. F. Greenwell and Hon.
Joseph A. Coad, and upon their
selection he and the State at large
are to be congratulated. Both
are possessed of the requisite
ability, are staunch advocates of
the application of business princi
ples to State affairs, and each of
them may be relied upon for
frrnk and fearless expression of
his opinion of the details of the
new plan.
| HOW DO YOU SAY IT?
By C.N. Lurie
|| Common Errors in English and
• H How to Avoid Them
I , TO EXPECT AND TO THINK.
5 pvO NOT use the word "expect” In
I U the sense of suppose, believe or
think. For example, the use of the
Word "expect” In the following sen
tence Is Incorrect! "I expect that your
11 . lessons are done.” The verb “ex-
L pect" means “to look forward to ns
| probable or certain; to await, to feel
| assured of something before It occurs;
| to anticipatens, "I expect to bo to
| church next Sunday, If the weather la
■ fine.” Usually we use “expect" when
| w# look forward to an event with In-
I ‘ tereat or desire. “One should not say,
B, „ T expect It Is,’ still less, ‘I expect It
Et was.’ We cannot expect the present
* or t* l * P® Bl ’" one authority.

AHU THE JAPANESE
REALLY EFFICIENT?
Not If You Judge Them By
Their Telephones, Says
Julian Street
Although the Western World has be
gun to take for granted that the Jap
anese have reached an enviable posi
tion In the world because of an alleged
efficiency In all matters, a close Inspec
tion of actual facts shows up the Jap
as almost childish. Writing tOr Mc-
Clure's Magazine in an arUcle entitled,
“Are the Japanese Efflclentr 1 Julian
Street, noted traveler and writer, gives
many Instances of stupid Japanese in
efficiency, particularly at to tele
graphs, telephones and transportation.
“Tokyo, with a transportation prob
lem which ought easily to be solved,
has utterly Inadequate street car serv
ice," says Mr. Street. "The rush hour
there la only saved from being at ter
rible as the rush hour In New York by
the lack of subterranean features.
“But It Is In all matters having to
do with communications that Japanese
Inefficiency 1 most strikingly brought
to the notice of strangers. The postal
service Is poor, the cable service Is ex
pensive and absurdly slow (when I
was in Japan It took about ten days
to cable to America and get an answer
back), and the telephone service Is un
believably awful. All these, like the
railroads, are owned and operated by
ths Government
“It is like opera bouffe. Though the
demand for new telephones far exceeds
the supply, the government makes no
appreciable effort to remedy the situa
tion. Every year an absurdly smell
number of lines Is added to the exist
ing system. These are assigned by lot
among those who have applied for
them. Thus, If a man be lucky In the
draw, be may get a telephone within
two or three years. But I know one
gentleman In Tokyo who was not lucky
In the draw. At the ripe age ot sixty
seven he applied to the government
for an addition office telephone. The
Instrument was Installed shortly after
he had celebrated hfs eightieth birth
day. Long may be live to use It!
“It one be In a burry to have a
telephone put In, one does not apply
to the authorities, but attacks the prob
lem In a manner more direct—either
through a telephone broker or through
advertising. Thus one can get la con
tact with a person wishing to sell an
Installation and a number. The num
ber must, however, be In the exchange
serving the district In which the tele
phone is to be placed,
"Though th* Is a very expensive
method, It Is the one usually employed
in Tokyo and other large cities. A lelo
phone for the business district of the
capital may cost as ranch as twelve
hundred dollars, but in a residence dis
trict It will be considerably
five hundred dollars or less.
"A curious detail of this business la
that low numbers bring the highest
price in the open market. This, I was
Informed, Is because green operators.
In process of being broken In, sit at
that end of the central switchboard at
which the high numbers Invariably oc
cur, thus guaranteeing the owners of
high numbers a grade of service cal
culated to drive them to the mad
house.”-
