NATIONAL A N K I L.TO M. OHIO Truths Pondered While "Then gently scan your brother man"— -By Mr. Modestus- Labor is quite inclined to empha size the importance of its functions. More arrogantly, the owners of capital, and managers of industry assert what some of them have open ly called their "divine right." Employers of labor have insisted on dealing with "one man" at a time, in hiring labor. Politicians and publicists have played up "individualism." And the laws of property have recognized the property rights of an "individual." Even a municipality, engaging in business, becomes a "corporation." It is said to be acting in its "pri vate and individual capacity." A corporation is endowed by law with the qualities of "a person." But these are only like the various limbs of the same body. Underneath all these fractional sections is the unifying entity Containing all classes, like cells in a body, is the social unit. Relating all individuals to each other, is the central source and con trol. Directing all functions, is a neces sity deeper than any one life or class. Surviving all changes, outriding all revolutions, is the community of life. SAND-GRAVEL-CENENT The Hamilton Gravel Co. Phoni 3708 Schwenn Coal Company W H. STEPHAN, Prop.

Individuals are like cells—some of which have inordinate growth, then die. There are classes, but they are sub sidiary to the elemental body. Individuals can be enumerated here but only because they are parts of a whole. A nobility thinks it is "ruling" so ciety, and rides in a saddle. But unless it controls for the com mon welfare, it is unseated. A moneyed aristocracy boasts of its wisdom, and prates of its wealth Actually, it is only secreting sur plus wealth, like a gland. When the function of a class has been performed, it passes. The common life, the social func tioning process, continues. There may be—there are, class wars. But these could never be, were it not for the underlying life of society There is much talk about class antagonisms, and a struggle for sur vival. The essential, continuing fact, is that of a society whose members co operate. Take out this daily co-operation, the associated action— And the "rugged individual" would have no field for his ruggedness. It is this associated effort which furnishes the social surplus. It is from this social product that the individual abstracts his "fortune." "Making money" is just the tap ping of this social reservoir. Politics may be "rotten"— But if it promotes the social process, it goes on.

When it no longer performs, a so cially needed function—it atrophies. That happened to royalty-—and royal politics. It is happening now to the politics of Wall street and the banks. The issues of our American politics have no reference to the facts of life. The solution of our problems will not depend upon the election of a cer tain political party. The fall of a civilization—if it comes—will be from anaemia of the social body. It will not come from the failure of any certain social class.

Trade groups form local representativ bodies in the same way. In cities large enough there are label trades councils, made up of delegates from all local unions in occupations using a union label. Similarly, there are printing trades councils, building trades councils ,and n^etal trades councils. At least two trades, car penters and painters, often have dis trict councils. All of these are dele gate bodies whose authority goes back to local unions, but which may not transgress authority vested national and international unions.

For many years the Ojlbway Indians of the Garden River preserve, along side the city of Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., have been presenting a riverside stage version of'Longfellow's poem, "Hia watha," in their own language. The first performance was put on at the Canadian Soo in honor of a visit from Longfellow's daughter. The poem Is a glorification of the Soo area and Lake Superior. The River Kwasind was the St. Mary's on which the Soo is built and the rapids mentioned in the poem are the Soo rapids. The city's old Indian name, Pawitlng, appears In the poem. It was the Ojibways who in spired the poem and it is their leg ends and stories which are told in it. The Soo Indians presented the play in several American cities years ago and once they appeared in London, England. Every character In the piece Is taken by an OJibway, and the whole play Is given in the Indian language. The action of the play is explained to the audience through a loud speaker. Long List of "Nevers" Not Hard to Complete The story of an American back woodsman who had never seen a horse or heard of prohibition has no monop oly on "Nevers." Great Britain has lots of "Nevers." The late Lord Ox ford never used a telephone. He was probably the only public man of these days who could say the same. People brought to Scotland from St. Kilda had never seen a train, a motor car, or a horse. This is not nearly so strange as the fact that, three years ago, a pretty Lincolnshire girl of sev enteen, who had lived all her life In a village in the Wolds, took her first Journey by train to Cleethorpes. Also she had never ridden In a mo tor car. An old lady of Longford near Nuneaton, who died not long ago at the age of one hundred, had never seen the sea, and never been more than twenty-flve miles from her home. A girl of twenty, who lives twenty miles from Plymouth, has never visit ed that town or any place on the coast—London Mall. "The Baroque Florence" The city of Lecce In Apulia has do* servedly been called "the Baroque Florence" by Gregorovius, for certain ly that style of architecture and sculptural decoration is on Its churches and its large and small pal aces, although Romanesque is the prevalent style of art In Apulia. The white soft Lecce stone is finely adapt ed to the petrified embroidery and lace which the chisel has engraved upon It. Among the most notable examples Is the church of St. Croce, the semi nary and Its well, the Palazzo deJla Prefettura and the Churches of St Chlara and Caterlna. But when at Lecce the visitor should not fall to take the trip to Galllpoli to see its Greek fountain, the cathedral of St Agata, by Genulnl and Its famous can vases. Horned Owl Fearedl Among Indians the horned owl was considered a personification of the evil one. They feared its influence and regarded its visits to dwellings as portentous of disaster or death. Today the great horned owl is con sidered the least desirable of all the owls, because it competes with man in its search for food. The United States biological survey classifies the great horned owl as a "restraining influence in the wilderness, both on game and the enemies of game, for It destroys both, and thus does not destroy the balance of nature." On a farm or game preserve it becomes a menace, and there it cannot be tolerated. Tribute to the Dog "The intelligence of the dog,'" says Albert Payson Terliune, "is so uncan ny at certain times that it takes pre cedence over anything possessed by man. Dogs feel states of mind, atti tudes, emotions which must be exhibit ed in clumsy words to men. Long, long ago, their first ancestors made their compact of friendiihip and af fection with men. That friendship has grown Into an intelligent bond as well as an emotional one. And the brains of the dogs have commingled with the brains of mtn. In many Instances, the dog's brains have not been inferior." Setting the Tim* Mrs. Ayres—Do come and spend tlie evening with us.

SHORT WEEK Is Made Main Issue By British Labor London.(ILNS)—Determination to resist the accumulating pressure of reactionary interests was the keynote of the Newcastle Trades Union Con gress from September 5 to 10, under the chairmanship of John Bromley. Outstanding features of the con gress were the discussions on the shorter working week, a matter of urgent importance to the whole trade union movement throughout the world the fiscal policy report the report on the public control and reg ulation of industry, and disarmament. At its very first meeting congress got to grips with the work-and-wage situation by its emphatic support of the cotton operatives in their struggle against the particularly slashing wage-cutting attacks of the employ ers. The proposal of the general council to open a fund to support the operatives was whole-heartedly ap proved. On unemployment the congress ex pressed its grave concern at the in crease in the number of unemployed in this country, and at the suffering and hardship caused. It was also of opinion that the government's policy in reducing wages and social services aggravated the problem, and it called upon the government to abolish war debts and reparations, and to develop public works, such as housing schemes, slum clearance, etc., which will provide long term employment and improve purchasing power for persons now unemployed.
