Some time ago the pupils of district

shown a cotton plant which had been
sent to the Princeton normal depart
ment. Lyla Stanbohr, Esther Salberg,
Isaac Salberg, Walter Stangohr, Wil

creditable,compositions on the subject
of cotton, illustrated them with free
hand drawings, and presented their
booklets to the Princeton normal de

On Saturday morning the northern
section of the Sherburne County
Teachers' Reading circle held its sec
ond meeting at the Princeton high
school. Princeton is a convenient
meeting place for the neighboring
Control of Business.
There is much food for thought in
the statement of Senator Davis Elkins,
of West Virginia, attacking paternal
ism and government interference in
private business. It is a subject which
has drawn forth pointed comments
from the best brains of the country,
and it may now be accepted as a fact
that business men generally are op
posed to the government interfering
any more than is necessary with busi
ness affairs.
That there must be regulatory laws
in the public interest is conceded as,
for* instance, the Sherman anti-trust
law. Without that statute it would
have been impossible for the govern
ment to put a stop to the orgy of com
bination and price-fixing which held
full'sway a few years ago until the
Northern Securities decision brought
it td a close. There are other regula
tory acts which serve to prevent big
business from imposing upon the pub
Btit the tendency is now to go to the
other extreme and authorize the gov
ernment to practically take over cer
tain lines of business, and it Is against
.this tendency that the West Virginia
semttor inveighs when he says:
"One of the undoubted causes for
thettoters of the country turning en
masse to the republican party last
November, was that they were hearti-
'*f r ^T ^^^f^-^^^^^^^^i^pr^
ly/sick and tired ot the intrusion of
tiie government into private business.
-The government had tried its hand
along these lines with resulting dife
astrous failure."
Duringthe war .circumstances com
pelled the government to intrude into
private business, and representatives
and senators readily voted for the op
eration and control of the railroads,
for the Lever act, for^the establish
ment of the food and fuel administra
tions and for similar acts as war
measures. Then it was a question of
necessity. The government had to
have transportation and supplies to
the fullest measure. There was no
question of economic policy involved.
But the congressmen who support
ed these bills as war measurefsowill by
no means give
to perma
nent laws oxf thse same character. The
waro emergency has passed and there
ln S
_*.-.. government intrusion in private busi
ness which was justified two years
ago. Furthermore, the government's
incursions into the realms of business
have not been marked by conspicuous
success. "From virtual ownership of
railroads to running war workers' ho
tels in Washington," says Senator El
kins, "the result was the samedislo
cation of business, stupendous waste
and economic chaos."
There are now pending before con
gress a number of measures the pur
pose of which is to extend over cer
tain lines of business the regulatory
authority of the government to an ex
tent which practically means control.
These bills are conceived of a desire
to protect the public interest. They
should be drawn with extreme care,
and their full consequences should be
well understood. Congress should not
make the cure worse than the disease.
The interests of the American peo
ple must be conserved, but in doing
this all possible freedom should be
left to private business when it does
not encroach upon the rights of the
public.Washington Post.
Those Pesky Leans.
We had a hard time sneaking a man
into the training camp of the leans
but we finally succeeded and he
brought back a weird tale of what the
lean tribe is cooking up for their fat
brethren. The leans have gone into
training behind closed gates, as they
realize that they must outwit the fats
in the coming battle and accomplish
with their brains what they couldn't
do with their brawn.
Head Chief Odegard's wonderful
home-brew compound, which, when
rubbed onto the athletes, makes them
semi-invisible and therefore hard for
the fats to follow in their movements
up and down the floor, works all right
when he gets just the right mixture.
The other night he got it a little too
stout and his whole bunch looked so
thin from the overdose that they
sneaked right by the big chief unbe
known to him and went off to moon
light party instead of putting in their
regular practice hours under the
watchful eyes of the head medicine
The leans have been racking their
brains for the last two weeks to con
coct something to make the defeat of
the fats absolutely sure. Fred Keith,
being of an inventive turn of mind,
has rigged up a folding stepladder
which he packs on his back. His idea
is to get the ball close to the fats' bas
ket, unfold his ladder, climb up and
drop the ball through the net, making
it a sure goal. Fred has it down so
pat now that he thinks he can pull it
off without the referee knowing what
is going on.
W. J. Thomas is another m-ui who
will bear watching when he gets into
action against the fats. He is an old
experienced ployer and has done ev
erything from chasing caribou in the
wilds of northern Maine to raising
bumper crops of potatoes on the sand
dunes south of Princeton. If he can
juggle the ball the way he can the
murphies he will be a hard man for

the fats to guard.
Another little stunt they have
worked out is this: They figure that
they can just about hold the fats even
until the last few minutes of play and
then, about the time the superior
weight and brawn of the big fellows
begin to count, they plan on slipping
Jim Hartman into the melee, garbed
in a woman's bathing suit and a wan
smile. Jim's role is to spring a few of
his good stories on his fat opponents
and while they are rolling on the floor
in spasms of laughter at Jim's funny
ones the loans will put over the coup
de grace.
The leans had planned on using
Henry Milbrath for thir center, but
as he is playing on the regular legion
team the fats have protested him, and
so there is a merry little scrap going
on about this, all of which adds* to the
gaiety of the occasion and will just
pile up a few more grudges for the
tribes to even up on each other that
night. We wish to announce ourselves
as neutral in Henry's case, but in pass
ing we would like to remark that, if
it's real slimjims they are looking for,
Henry sure fits the bill, and if they
had smokestack inspectors in this
state he sure would get the appoint
ment for head stack inspector. Possi
bly when Hank gets back from Milaca,
after the legion tackles the Milaca
cubs, he won't be in shape to play any
thing and this may settle the dispute
without further argument.
Another big surprise the leans
figure on pulling is to inject Sliver
Pratt of Zimmerman into the game.
While Harry is not living in Princeton
now he is regarded as one of the old
timers, and the leans claim they have
a perfectly good constitutional right
to use him in this battle. Harry has
the reputatibn of winning every game
that he has anything to do with,
whether it be baseball or poker, or
whether he is participating as a play
er, substitute or official. The leans
figure that if all the rest of the dope
goes wrong on them they still have
Sliver to play as their last trump card
and, judging the future by the past,
this means a sure win for Odegard's
There are various other players of
more or less (principally less) renown
who will take part in this game on one
side or the other, but limited space for
bids that we go into further detail.
Suffice to say that it will be the real,
big social and athletic event of the
season and, for the love of Mike, don't
miss it.
The women folks are also working
up some good stunts for the game in
the nature of yells and songs to cheer
their respective favorites on to victory.
While we might be foxy enough to spy
out what the crude men folks have
mapped out, we frankly admit that we
had no success in getting at the real
truth of what the fair sex is going to
hand out the night of the game, and
if you want to know you will have to
go and find out for yourself.
Owing to the conflict of some other
dates it is impossible to announce the
date of this fiasco at this time. Watch
for the circulars which will be spread
broadcast over the village in time to
let you know. A Fat.

indefinite period another reduction or change in design is entirely
out of the question and not at all contemplated.
"We believe the public will be fair enough to fully appreciate
the frankness of the above when they consider the extent of our re-
cent price cut which was in fact equivalant to several reductions
one, in our desire to contribute toward satisfying their demands
for lower living costs notwithstanding our sacrifice in marketing
our cars at a loss until are able to materially reduce present
costs through lower material prices and greater manufacturing
efficiency. While we have of course made some progress in bring-
ing down operating costs, we still have along way to go before
any thought can be given to further reductions in present car
prices, so we have no hesitancy in making these open statements
to acquaint you with the true situation.
"You can therefore give assurance to prospective purchasers
of Ford cars that now is their real pportunity to buy below cost
and obtain delivery. Every one is familiar with the heavy demand
for Ford cars in the Spring and this year will be no exception, as
in spite of conditions, business is already accumulating, so that
many who.desire Ford cars will be obliged to wait perhaps until
mid-summer for delivery, causing considerable inconvenience and
perhaps financial loss, particularly to commerciul customers."
