Quinn Congressman, Tenth Diet.. Thos. D. Schall General Election, Tuesday, Nov. 7. A STATESMAN SPEAKS. Senator Kellogg's keynote speech delivered at St. Cloud was the address of a statesman. It is only rarely that the people of Minnesota have the privilege of listening to so lucid and concise a discussion of the big eco nomic problems confronting this gov ernment and the steps that have been taken by congress to solve those problems. Frank B. Kellogg comes before the people of this state after having rep resented them in the United States senate for a period of six years. Those have been the most eventful six years in the history of the civilized nations. The great world war was fought and a treaty was finally made. Then fol lowed a period which has sorely tried the peoples of all the nations, especial ly those who were engaged in the conflict. As Senator Kellogg said, during the war the country was unit ed, but when the terms of peace were being made and during the period of reconstruction through which we are just passing, party and class lines have again been drawn too tightly. Never since the days of the reconstruction following the civil war has this na tion been in greater need of real leaders in the halls of congress, states men with vision and with the ability to build on firm foundations, construc tive leaders. It was Minnesota's good fortune to have had in the senate dur ing this period two of her most able citizens. One of them is a seasoned legislator who long ago won his laurels. The other is a man of such unusual ability who has so unre servedly given himself to the task at hand that his record as a senator has attracted the attention of the whole nation. Frank B. Kellogg comes before the people of this state to give an account of his stewardship during the past six years. If ever a man served his state and nation faithfully ana with all the talents that he possessed it has been Senator Kellogg. On every big public issue he has been found fighting for h"On Wheel S rGS S of this nation." The voters of Minnesota have a high privilege at this coming election. They have the privilege of casting their ballots for one of the ablest statesmen in the highest legislative body in the world, a man whose in- Another issue of the Minnesota Harpoon has strayed into the Union office. Possibly some of our readers have also received free copies of this publication. But for the information of those who have not been so favored, it might be well to state that the Harpoon is in a class by itself, much as is the Twin City Reporter. After glancing through the pages of the Harpoon we breathe a prayer of thanksgiving that we find in the publication no word of commendation for any public official or candidates to whom we have accorded our sup port, The Independent Press in commenting on President Harding's veto of the bonus bill states: "The bonus idea was wished upon the soldiers in the "first place by the politicians, now let 'them make good." We thoroughly agree with the Press. Let the poli ticians, who are talking so much about their appreciation of the service the 'boys in kahki rendered, provide some means of raising the money for pay ing the bonus or adjusted compensa tion which is due them. An expres sion of good will is not of much ma terial benefit to a man who is in need. The average country weekly is probably almost too generous with its praise of local enterprises, but on the cheer leader rests the responsibility of making enough noise to awaken the enthusiasm of the crowd. At any rate no press notices that have ap peared in the last six weeks would lead any reader to the conclusion that there was a single township or coun ty fair in this state that had not been a glorious success. The Northwestern Bell Telephone company issues a neat and attractive monthly publication, "The Northwest ern Bell." The October issue contains an account of the Annandale wreck, on August 12, and the efficient ser vice rendered by the telephone opera tors on the evening of that fearful disaster. With great presence of mind they rushed through the calls for doctors, nurses, garage men and then began sending messages to neighboring towns and cities for help. The six operators remained in the telephone office all night sending messages for passengers of the ill fated train. The office was crowded with hysterical men and women, but the girls insisted on quiet and order so that they could attend to their du ties which they performed most ef ficiently. The account of the Annan dale wreck serves to remind us of the fact that our American girls like our boys can rise to an emergency and in hours of stress and danger those whom we often hold but lightly will be found displaying great fortitude and real heroism. Do You Know That the farmer is considered our most thrifty citizen? That he is a close buyer on every thing he purchases for home, farm and personal use? That as a rule he buys the best or that which is represented to be the best? That he is a greafc reader of all merchandise offerings in newspaper and catalogue That he likes to read about the new and better things in merchandise and know the goods he buys That he feels safer in knowing that his money will be refunded promptly if he is not satisfied That over ninety-five per cent of the mail-order buying of the country is done by the farmer That the secret of the mail-order house's success is simply persistent follow-up advertising? That this persistent follow-up ad vertising is the life blood of the mail order business? That it will pay every home mer chant to study the mail-order cata logue thoroughly? That the mail-order catalogue is full of valuable pointers in regard to attractive advertising copy? That the mail-order method of fea turing leaders is one which the home merchant could easily and successful ly adopt? That the home merchant who wants to compete successfully with the mail order house must learn to advertise persistently That persistent newspaper advertis ing, together with good descriptive copy, is the only proven means of combating mail-order competition in your community By a continued use of advertising you keep up a constant acquaintance with the buying public you popular ize your store and the goods you sell and you verify the good business judg ment of persistent advertising any time you care to look at the figures in your bank book and compare them with the period in which you did not advertise. hav vp the best interests of the common peo- 7J?JiSl Remember: The mail-order houses +i,v better bargainsth thapresenhave, you I theirr share onf or be _!ew __l. ou ther i sistent advertising, as against you Jy tha pie because he i ofs ^e wont if yon dont-BemiUi SertineL knows their needss A he said ihn his address Wednesday evening: the stability and independencet of the man tegrity is not to be questioned, a man States, have been holding on to their of the people whose one object is to serve them, Frank B. Kellogg. Scrapping Suspended. Secretary Denby announced recent- no further scrapping of battleships or other naval armament. As there had been no scrapping that amounts to anything, it can hardly be said that there will, as the result of the an nouncement, be any change of policy. All powers, including the United really effective vessels, only ships that were practically obsolete having been dismantled. Even certain old ships that is, old by the navy standards, ships that are far from being up to date, such as the Connecticut and Ver montare being retained, while work on two of the most powerful ships in the navy is being rushed. Thus far, then, there has been little or no result from the conference of last winter. The American policy, as announced recently, is also the policy of the other powers. Several reasons are assigned for the decision of the secretary of the navy. It is feared that, in view of the critical situation in the Near East, Great Britain may find it necessary to with draw, for a time at least, from the conference naval agreements. Indeed it does not seem likely that any of the powers will just now, in view of the unsettled state of the world, consent or dare to weaken themselves on the ocean. Our government has also been influenced by the fact that neither France nor Italy has ratified the naval treaties. So we seem to be back pretty much where we were before the conference assembled. There will, it is said, be no scrapping by our government till other governments begin the work, and even then our government will be careful not to move in advance of the others in reducing naval strength.

"More or less connected with this subject is cheaper and better trans portation. Railroad rates are still too high and a burden on the farmer. I am confident that in the near future freight rates will, and must be, fur ther reduced. "It has been said that the Esch Cummins bill guaranteed the railroads 6 per cent on their 'watered stock.' The bill made no such guarantee what ever. It simply provided that rates should be on a basis, as near as might be, to give the railroads as a whole 5% per cent on their value. In any event the net earnings were not to exceed 6 per cent. The value was fixed by the Interstate Commerce commis sion under the LaFollette bill, in which the railroads had no voice whatever." Senator Kellogg does not pretend to be entirely satisfied with the present tariff which is of necessity, as every one realizes, a compromise measure. He fought for and voted for many lower duties than those finally fixed. In respect to this measure Senator Kellogg" said: "It is the first tariff bill ever enact ed which gives the farmer a fair share of protection on all the products which he produces, while preserving free of duty farm machinery, lumber, shin gles and many other important arti cles which he must buy. "Every single product which the farmer produces is in this bill given a reasonable protection, and we know that the emergency tariff bill had a very stimulating effect upon prices of farm products. "The most important provision in the bill is the provision for a scientific investigation of tariff duties. This is the first real progressive step toward the scientific solution of the tariff question." Senator Kellogg frankly states that the taxes on the people with the smaller incomes are altogether too high and he has consistently used his influence to reduce them. But, as he said, we are now paying for the bur dens and expenses of the war. In an other year we can look for a greater reduction in our taxes although of course each county is responsible for its local tax. In touching briefly on the St. Law rence deep waterway, Senator Kel logg stated he was strongly in favor of the project. The people of thef middle west, he said, had assisted in 'building the Panamna canal which cost millions of dollars, theny had stood tntJi trans in P himprovin Gul ex i expense in improving acilitie hndr rtatio Mexico, and now they might well ex pect to receive some attention them selves. The construction of the St. Lawrence deep waterway will bring i he ocean to Minnesota. It is esti mated it will add 6 cents a bushel to the value of grain in the northwest. In respect to the fuel situation Sen ator Kellogg stated: "There are two industries in this country wheih are absolutely essential to the life of a nation," trans portation and fuel. It is not pos sible for the people to exist if any set of men, either labor unions or op erators of transportation or coal mines, can paralyze these industries and endanger the life and health of the public. I do not generally believe in paternal legislation, but the power must exist and must be exercised to preserve the very existence of the gov ernment and the life of the people. Congress has passed a law authorizing a coal commission. I believe that a solution of these transportation and production problems will be reached." In closing his address, he said: "Six years ago I told the people that if elected I would give up my private business and devote myself ex clusively to the interests of the state and nation. I have given my undivid ed time and brought to this service all the ability I possess. I can say to the people of Minnesota that I have given six of the best years of my life to unremitting labor during one of the most difficult and trying periods of American history. I am ready to ac count to the people for the trust im posed in me and submit my record with the consciousness of having done my best. To them and to the press of the state I extend my thanks for their loyal and splendid support." An "Aristocracy of Brains." The president of Dartmouth college has probably let himself in for a great deal of angry criticism by his frank statement on educational matters the THE PRINCETON UNION: THURSDAY, OCTOBER 5, 1922 other day. Indeed, the muttering! of the storm are already Heard, and the indications are that a heated contro versy is about to begin. President Hopkins had at least the courage of his convictions when he laid it down as axiomatic that the opportunities for securing an education by way of the college course are definitely a privilege and not at all a universal right. Even that proposition is likely to be disputed, but what will really cause the descent of an avalanche of hostile comment is his declaration that facilities for obtaining a higher edu cation should be increasingly reserved to the "aristocracy of brains, com posed of the intellectually alert and eager, if democracy is to be a quality product rather than simply a quantity one and if excellence and effectiveness are to displace the mediocrity toward which democracy has such a tendency to skid."- That sentence is fairly bristling witlj challenges, and doubtless many of them will be accepted. The main contention of Dr. Hopkins, that re strictions should be placed on the num bers who seek to go to college, is theoretically correct. That is why all colleges and universities worthy of the name have fixed entrance require ment with which all applicants for ad mission must comply. That, too, is why college authorities reserve to themselves the right of removing from the rolls at any time any student not only for infraction of discipline, but also for failure to keep up to the intellectual standards set by the insti tution. But the possession of a right and the exercise of it are two different OLSON ALWAYS LEADS Cash buyer of Veal, Cream, Chickens, Eggs, Hides and Produce.

RUDD LUMBER GO. things, and-slipshod methods of deal ing with students who do not keep up to the mark are not wholly unknown even in some of the most famous homes of higher learning. Failure in this respect on the part 6f the govern ing body is the cause of much of that mediocrity of which the Dartmouth head so justly complains. One of the reasons for this laxity is the mistaken idea on the part of the public and even of some educators that the true test of the success of an educational institution is the crowded state of its classrooms and dormi tories. This* is the fallacy that leads to the fatal preference of the quan tity rather than the quality product of graduates. If the remarks of Dr. Hopkins will lead to a little retrospection on the part of the presidents and authorities of other colleges and to a determina tion to look more to the essential things in education in the future, he will have rendered a real service to the youth of America and, through them, to the whole nation.Washing ton Post.
