BE JOYFUL Of course, San
Francisco has a right to feel proud
of the fact that it closed its exposi
tion with a balance of over $2,000,
000 on the credit side of the ledger.
Not only may San Francisco con
gratulate itself, but all America
should be jubilant, for there's a great
deal more cause for felicitation than
merely a big cash balance for San
The success of the big show was'
largely due to the fact that thou
sands of wealthy American "saw"
their country for the first time. In
1914 $300,000,000 was spent by
Americans "seeing Europe first." In
1915 practically nothing was so
spent, for which praise the war lords.
For many years the press of this
country has waged a campaign urg
ing our rich classes to see America
first, yet it took a war to get them
to do it Now, however, that they
have done so and have learned to
their astonishment that their own
country has more to offer than Eu
rope, we may look for a decided
dropping off in foreign travel, even
after peace is declared.

JUST A LITTLE CASE. We have
said something before about the Dal
las Free Legal Aid bureau. Here's
another example of how it works.
A certain dealer in cows sold a cow
to a poor woman under a guarantee
that it would give three gallons of
milk. It gave one. After protesting
to the dealer, who laughed at her, in
desperation she went to the city free
legal aid bureau.
Investigation was made as con
scientiously as if there were a big
cash fee involved. Numerous victims
of the sharper, who, it was disclosed,
made a business of misrepresenting
cows, were unearthed. The city bu
reau took all their cases. The first
step was to advise the newspapers
and they warned the public and re
fused the fraud advertisements.,
The cow dealer is anxious now to
make good his victims' losses and
keep good himself, if the free legal
aid bureau lets up on him.
A little thing in itself, that free le
gal aid bureau, but it will in the long
run accomplish more toward the
weeding out of the harpies who prey
upon the poor and unsophisticated
than a dozen police forces.
