Here he is: lie never comes to school unless he is in a reason able frame of mind. If the teacher has sent home a report or his son had made bitter complaint ajrainst teneher be waits until he can keen his voice even he appears in the office to discuss the matter. lie is as quick to praise as to blame. That is a truly distinctive characteristic, for many blame us and few praise us. lUil the yond school parent drops Ihe teacher a note 1ellini- her how pleased h iji-ess and how "fateful he is to her for taki interest in the little rascal. He always appeal's at the school functions and iiinn- aces to say a word of appreciation to the teacher of his youngster and to the principal of the school, lie at tends the parents' meetings and .offers his assistance when workers are needed, lie helps raise the funds for the phonograph and heads the commit ;c that asks for additional play space and science equipment for the school. Jlo finds time to attend to school business. When the school is under fire he speaks for or auainst with authority, because be has stayed close 1 the school and knows. He takes the side of the children regardless of anything else. lb' is among those who ask for modern methods and equipment and understands the needs for both, although he went as a child to a small district school when- the water pail stood on a bench with a tin dipper hanging above it. and where the teacher was some one who had some schooling and was pausing 011 his step up the lad der to make his next term's tuition. lie can remember this and yet be willing that Ihe children of this generation have a better chance. He is willing even to the extent of attending meetings to push his idea and paying taxes to support it. He is the sort of parent who dislikes gossip and w ho silences it by saying. "I'll step in and ask the teacher about this on my way down 1on tomorrow morning. 1 don't believe it and I'm going to give her a chance to speak for herself. Oh, well, of course, if you don't want mc to I won't unless I should hear the story again." He is the sort of parent who says to the leachcr. ' i 111 going to trust you and believe in you until you make me do otherwise. You arc the teacher and you are on the spot. 1 am the parent and I'm at a distance. You must do with the child what you think is best. I will support you with all my power. "I expect you to remember that this child is mine and that he is endowed with my characteristics and ani mated by my ambitions. 1 know you will try to inter pret him through what you know of me, ami that you will ask mc for help when you need it. 1 know you will work with me sympathetically and yet wisely, be cause you have the training and the knowledge and the desire to be of service. Count on me." Oh. yes, I meet him every once in. a while. Hawaii w ritleii liblrcn" taper of DON'T BUTT IN President Harding has spoken to Ihe point through Senator Lodge when he asks the senate to strike out the provisions in the Xaval Appropriation Dill relative to the calling of an economic con vention and a convention further to reduce armaments. It is the province of the President to execute the laws that congress passes and as he is the chief executive it is not the duty of congress to out line his administrative policies. It is impossible for a President at all times to take the legisla tors into his confidence, especially so in regard to international sub jects. There are occasions when a premature announcement of plans and purposes can work great harm hy arousinu jealousies one against another between nations with whom diplomatic measures are being conducted. Nations as a whole do not differ essentially from in dividuals. When one is seeking to harmonize a situation, bring about amicable relations between two or more individuals who are more or less at odds he must pave the w ay by approachnicnts now to one and again to another, lest alarm and distrust be aroused instead of! confidence and trust being born. I The President is the head of the administration. In him the people have reposed a trust and he becomes the representative head' of the nation. A senator is the representative merely of the residents ' of one political subdivision of the I'nited States. The executive is' j ROM K. (I'.y Associated Press Mail) ' Picnilo Mussolini. Italy's new Prime Minister, who, 1111 1 il nine years at-ro was known as a Socialist, has bemm 1 his (.-mire ol' ollice by inevorably lay ing the ax to Hie root ol all public 'service inst iiui ions owned 01 lnaniiK ' ed by the state, such as railways, ; tclciih'ini'S, telegraphs. Idler and par j eel posts, which show a deficit, and even some others which are more or h ss successfully run. The railways in Italy are perhaps 'ihe most striking example ol the dif ficulties and weaknesses of state tnun j ageiuent. During 17 years of such I control, declares Professor I'go An- eona, an expert on financial questions, I they have ceased to be the largest Producers of national profit, and are 1 'today virtually owned by the railroad I men. Hcfore the greal war the rail- j ! ways brought in from 411.(11111, nun to I I 50.0(10,1100 lire a year, which might be 'taken as interest on the live and a I half billion lire which had been spent on constructing them. The deficit in j 1!)21 was over a billion lire, alfhoug'i the price nf tickets is now three times ' what is was. and it is said thai tin' 1 iU lic it for '.)22 will be still greater. I In fact, says I'rol'essorAncona, the net result of government management is disorder on all lines, deficiency ol material, deplorable condition of run ning stock, service deterioaled, and discipline entirely wrecked. The number of employees ami their wages have enormously increased; the aver age rate of pay having risen from 2(100 lire a year before the war lo over la. oiio lire today. To this should be added I lie urea' ly increased num ber of strikes and the fact that theit.; on the railway, which to amount to about 10 million lire a year, have now risen to over one hundred million. Five billion and a half lire were spent in 60 years in order to constiuct the railways; two and a half lire have been spent during the 17 years of state ci-ntrol merely to enlarge Iheni. Professor Ancona says further that these troubles are due in large meas ure to the fact that the Italian rail road lines run through sections of the country each with widely differing economic, social and climatic condi tions, thus creating a complicated and difficult, system impossible for 1 1n state to manage successfully. Politic al interests have been permit led too much inlluence in deciding where new lines were to be built. Another great drawback lo the prosperity of Italian railways Profes sor Ancona says, is that the workers have insisted on an eight hours day, for all employees, even for those whose duty consists in opening and shutting a gate at a level crossing once or twice a day. This eight hours question has added 40.000 or 50,oo(l to the number of 1 lie personnel, and something likely 500 million lire to the expense of operation. The only remedy like to bring in a reign of economy and efficiency, acocrding to this financial expert, is the radical one of gradually ceding to different private companies the lines which, as one great whole, have been such a failure in the hands of the state.

Notwithstanding that this d.mund has resulted in a sub stantial advance in prices for bonds in general, the present outlook indicates a gradual trend toward the level which pre vailed some years ago, particularly as applied to issues of the better grade, which still yield a liberal return.
