Frank 1 Pinet, secretary of the
Kansas Teachers association and edi
tor of the Kansas Teacher, their offi
cial publication, has started a war on
the, efforts to unionize school men and
women in this state. Pinet warns the
teachers that friendship with labor
organizers at this time means the
American Federation of Labor will
direct and command the teachers pro
fession in the future.
In an editorial in the current Issue
of the Kansas Teacher. Pinet indicates
that the drive is a "subtly conducted
program for the exploitation of a pro
fession.'' He asserts that labor has
taken advantage of conditions and
ith '"iconoclasm the spirit of the
times." has "harped on fancied wrongs
by seeking to shake the confidence of
the teachers."

caption. "Tha Greater Menace." It
follows: ' ,
"There has been much talk during late
veaxa of various and sundry perils to toe
teaching; profession and to the schools of
the st:ire aud nation shortage of teacher.
Insufficient funds, inadequate, salaries, and
what am. But in all this welter of opin
ion and comment, we hare. In a large
measure, overlooked the greater menace.
.t.i..N i. tii deliberate and studied ' pro-
irraul ou the part of union labor to ;
enmesh the teaching profession on the net
of its great aud powerful, "out nevertheless,
highly selfish and essentially Individualis
tic, organisation. Kverywhere there aru
ri.t.n.-.. nf this. Paid agitators are seek-
lug seeds of dissension aud strife. Poisoned
pamphlets are being struck vlt the press,
and in a thousand and one ways the
American Federation of Labor, thru Its
cafr'-pnw. the American Feieerattan of
Tachcr. Is seeting to drive an entering
wedge between the teachrs and the public,
whole children the teachers teach. Mask
ed tho it Is with proffers of assistance for
the righting of economic wrongs, and with
protestations of sing le-henrted interest in
the institution of the public school, this,
and not something else, is the great menace
of the present hour to the teaching pro
fession. Th Only Sane Course.
Critical tho the tllme thru which we are
passing may be, there is much for the mor
row if only we can keep our poise and our
sanity, ami can keep our faith in the great
mass of tbe people., public opinion may
be slow to awaken to the needs of the
reuebiu profession, but it will awaken. In
the meantime, we in strengthen our owu
oraaniration, build better ami stronger our
own county and city teachers' association
aud our Stnte Teachers' association, and
th:u publicity and legislatiou come into
our owu.
"Our help lies within ourselves. Let as
countenance no aueinpt to break Into our
ranks, to effect a breach between superin
tendent and teacher, between city school
interests and couutry school interests, be
tween school and patron, ours is a com
mon cause, and oun be won thm loyalty
and co-operation. The wine of Bolshevism
is red and we may think Ita taste sweet,
but surely we need not drink of It merely
because a modern Circle bids up to do so.'
Here Pinet quotes from Dr. Lotus D.
Coffman. of the University of Min

teachers in relation to organized labor.
Doctor Coffman said: "They aerve
humanity as do physicians, nurses and
ministers. They recognize social and
ethical obligations which mean little or
nothing; to organized labor. Teachers

labor in the ordinary sense."
Continuing his editorial, Pinet said:

"Before easting- their lot with tbe Amer
ican Federation t Labor for better or for
woi.se. teachers will do well to recall tbe
old fable, once a favorite la many school
readers. "The Fable of the Arab and the
lam)." Sop posing- that tbe teachers join
the Amerii an Federation of Teachers,
thereby automatically affiliating- with the
American Federation, of Labor, is there
any reason to believe that labor will make
good its guarantee of autonomy? Will
not the camel, bavins succeeded in getting
his nose into tbe tent, insist upon shelter
for his head, his neck and flnallv bis en

High Prices Crippling Sale- of Consid

Overvaluation of property, even
above the already existing high mar
ket prices, is delaying the sale of a
great deal of Topeka property, ac
cording to W. A. Neiswanger, a local
real estate dealer.
Real estate transactions have al
most reached a climax of rapid trans

The period is unprecedented In the

In general. Neiswanger says, while
prices are high as compared to for
mer prices, they are in proportion to
increased costs of all other commodi

to boost the price on property they
wish to sell several thousand dollars
higher than could possibly be obtained
for it.

he wants the Job because the $150 a

Are there any bachelor in Topeka
who have despaired of Topeka girls
recognizing their desirability from a
matrimonial standpoint T They need
not despair; there ia still a chance for
them. The girls of Germany are look
ing for husbands an i have sent an ap
peal to The State Journal to call the
attention of the Topeka bachelors to
the matrimonial state of affairs tn
their country.
The appeal is contained in a letter
received from J. Stahl of Duisburg.

that the high cost of living has lust

business and that while the Teutonic
ladies do not say so in so many words,
they seem of the optnkm that Topeka
bachelors are all wealthy. They do
not say whether or not they expect to
come to America or have their pros
pective husbands go to Germany with
their wealth; that ia left for some ad
venturous Topekan to discover.
Here is the appeal: ,
"Oo account of the unhappy war. In
wbit-h more than 1.W0.00U young Germans
lost their lives, a atlll greater nomber of
young Uerinaa ladies are deprived of the
opportunity to find a husband. This ca
lamity, if I Uare call it such, is increased
by the fact that, owing to the extraor
dinary clearness nf household furniture
snd the scarcity of apartments the matri
mony has become a luxury and a privilege
of the rich in the country.
"In their distress our ynong ladies look
over to America in- the hope of finding
there the conjugal happiness, for which
reason they appeal to all American bache
lors who canaot find a match over there
and who are desirous to contract matri
mony with a well bred young German
lady, to approach them on this behalf.
The linqnistic difficulties should be no
obstacle, as our ladies are mostly acquaint

Shortly after the paper was off the
press Saturday afternoon, the tele
phone rang at the Topeka home and a
woman a voice came over the wire
sweetly inquiring about the house for
rent and saying she saw the ad in the
paper. This was news to the Topeka
woman and she informed the inquirer
that she knew of no house for rent
and the wrong number must have
been given.
The auione rang again. There it
was once more. Some one asking
about a house for rent. When the
home edition had been off the press
but thirty minutes the Topeka woman
could have rented her house, if she
had had one to rent, six times. When
the paper was but an hour old and in
the hands of a few thousand Topekans
she could have rented part of her own
home to seven different families. To
pekans had fairly wept on her shoul
der they were so frantically eager to
find a place to abide in.
Telephone callers have no inkling
that one is taking a bath. The To

to the phone that the woman began
to use the mop. Rivulets of bath wa

THOSE who understand motor cars know that the prevailing
weakness is the inability cf -the various engines to deliver
satisfactory results from gasoline. Gas has gone down and
down in grade and engines have not been redesigned to meet the
lower grade of fueL
Chalmers engineers were first to supply the answer to this
serious problem. They devised the Hot Spot and Kaur s-horn.
The raw "gas," too heavy for the carburetor to vaporize it
properly, strikes the Hot Spot, and the result is much, like a drop
of water falling on the top of a red-hot stove.
Thus the heavy "gas" is turned into a "dry cloud" and before
it has the slightest chance to revert to "mist" it is rushed via the
Ram's-horn manifold into the cylinders.
As the spark plugs touch off this finely vaporistd fuel ou
get instantaneous combustion and maximum power.
You get smoothness, the absence of vibration snd the cons?
quent saving in repair bills from burned bearings, scored cylinders,
fouled spark plugs and many troubles that are all traceable back
-to the inferior "gas" of the day.
