FIVE WAYS IN WHICH DELCO LIGHT INCREASES FARM EFFICIENCY 1. Work which was formerly accom plished by hand can now be done electrically with current supplied by Delco-Light. Time and labor are therefore saved. - 2. Delco-Light brings to the farm all of the modern benefits which formerly attracted the boys and girls to the city. 3. Delco-Light solves the "retired farmer" problem, by bringing to the country home all of the conveniences of the city. 4. Delco-Light makes the home better and more enjoyable clace in which to live. Therefore, everyone becomes cheerful and contented. 5. By correcting fundamental liv ing conditions on the farm, hired labor is attracted to the farm rather than to the city. Delco-Light Saves Time and Labor Increases Farm Efficiency, And Pays For Itself. RAY C. HALL, Dealer Ellis, - - - - - .Kansas. Subscribe for the World only $1.50 Jimmie and a German Boy Clash ' Must Do Three Things to Save Country.' It was a warm " evening, so TJncle Dan went out to a lawn seat under the spreading branches of the great tree that suggested the farm's name of Oak HilL Billle and Jimmie had been lay ing for him, so Uncle Dan was cap tured by the boys on short order. "Say, TJncle Dan," Billie' began. "We had a red-hot argument at school yes terday with Carl Newman, Carl said that German schools were miles ahead of our schools and that no one could come up to the educated German. Well, Jimmie got hot under the collar and handed it back to him good and plenty. Jimmie said if their education taught them to torpedo Lusitanias, sink hos pital ships, murder hundreds of wom en and children, make slaves of the Belgians, poison wells, destroy fruit trees and commit all sorts of crimes, then we did not want that kind of education here. What do you think about It, TJncle Dan? I told Jimmie you spent a lot of time In Europe and knew all about schools, so give us your opinion." 'IWeU," replied TJncle Dan, deliber ately, "the German schools are very thorough ; they furnish exceedingly val uable and practical instruction. The industrial training given there is prob ably the best to be found. The schools as a whole, however, ia my opinion, appeal to the head only, and never to the heart. The aim and trend is to make the Individual blindly submis sive to the Prussian plan of world do minion ; they teach that It is the des- tiny of Germany to rule the world, and that to the glory and advance of Ger many, In this plan, all things must give way; tha the kaiser as head of the state, can do no wrong If he carries forward the plan of world control. Some of the greatest teachers 'and preachers even defend and Justify her heartless crushing of Belgians and the many other atrocious crimes she has committed In this war. Thank God, our American education reaches both the head and the heart. It Is an edu cation with a soul, and" we must main tain the high ideals we have fixed. In a word, in Germany, the people are taught that they exist for the govern ment, while here the government ex ists' to serve the people." "Just wait a minute," Interrupted Billie. Say that over again slowly, so I can write It down." i Uncle Dan, smilingly, compiled. Billie exclaimed : "Now, we will hand that nut out for Carl to crack. Carl, you know," continued Billie, "has a very smart father who keeps him posted on the German arguments. Carl said our government was only an experiment anyway; that it would not last twenty years, and that it might burst up any old time. Jimmie asked him if Germany was so mighty good, why they did not go back there to live." "Our government will go on forever, won't It, Uncle Dan?" "Now," said Uncle Dan, "you are raising a big question, and one that has troubled me for years. Our gov ernment is still In the experimental stage; In fact. It Is the greatest ex periment ever undertaken, and If pop ular government Is to be successful, a few things must be done, otherwise, to paraphrase the great Lincoln, the gov ernment of the people, by the people and for the people, -will perish. It Is my firm conviction," said Uncle Dan, in a very impressive manner, "that If our country Is to go on, as we hope and pray, we must very quickly do at least three things, I and I will name them In the eder of importance as It appears to me: "First, adopt compulsory universal military training of all young men physically fit before they reach the age of twenty years. "Next, require that every foreigner who comes here to livejnust, within a reasonable time, say a year, declare his intention of becoming an American citizen and take the necessary steps to do. so, thereby, from tlmt moment, as suming all the obligations of citizen ship of our country, and that means he must defend our flag upon equol terms with our natjve born, and if he is not willing to do this, he should be sent back from whence he came." "That's the stuff," exclaimed Billie. "And, finally, enact such legislation as will make voting compulsory. Pop ular government is based upon the .participation of all and the rule of the majority, and democracy cannot continue and be successful unless we live up "to the spirit of the Institu tion. ? ' . - The'first step, however. Is the pass ing of the -Chamberlain bill for univer sal military training. If you will get -the leading citizen, and especially the editor, of your paper, to write personal letters to your congressman and both senators, urging their support, it will help enormously. "I see by the morning papers." said Uncle Dan, "that the Kotary clubs of the entire country, the II vest, most effi cient organization to be found, have unanimously decided to get back of theChamberlain bill and give It loyal and enthusiastic support. They win work with the Universal Military Training league to accomplish this im portant piece of legislation, which will do more than anything else to make us a real nation with . a common view point, bring us back to sane living, and teach us the patriotism of service.'
