SWEETUND-REPUES TO "CITI
ZEN." "Citizen" writing in The,
Pay BoqH says: '"One supreme law
rules the universe, jiq undue Infer
ence there, that is why it moves so
elegant, quiet and precise,".
Since when did "Citizen" or any
body ele evtr observe the universe
as a whole moving in apy fashion
whatsoever? Internal movements
in one's body isn't a movement of
the person, internal movements of
the. various parts of the universe is
what "Qitigen" doubtless refers to,
but didn't mention. .But the different
parts of the universe, don't always
move with "elegance, quiet and pre
cision," They sometimes act just the
opposite, There is roughness, noise
and other bad qualities, "
- positive and negative qualities,
food-and bad3ar and peace, life and
eatb are everywhere observable. J
will presume that "Citizen," jike the
Psalmist, has observed the starry
heaven of a clear night and declared
it all perfect. Both- are mistaken.
Distance has lent enchantment- and
fooled the Psalmist as well as "Gitt
zen." if "Cltlzen,J when he attends
the theater will take a seat in the

Distance Is decsptlve, so with the
starry navanii Evoked at with th
naked eye at long distance the stars
seem to move "elegantly, quietly,
etc." but If you get closer to them,
by using a high-powered telescope,
qonfusion, disruption of planets, etc.,
is also observable; this the teach
ings of astronomy.
There is war in the heavens as well
as on earth,
"Citizen" writes; "There ig one
supreme law governing the uni
verse." Prof. karkhUu The Chicago
Examiner says there have been dis
covered over 600 laws, and there are
a good many more not discovered
What proof can "Citizen" give that
any one of these laws are supreme?
One govern in Us particular field;
none are supreme; they are demo
cratic, "Citizen" says "No undue inference,"-
when every statement be
makes in the paragraph is either an
"undue inference" or a half truth.

THE EXPRESS DRIVERS, If
any body of men is justified in strik
ing to gain'recognition of its union,
it is the express drivers. I know of
one who worked for o'ne of the large
express companies here for many
years and who was appreciated by
the company for -his industry and
faithfulness, yet he left home at 6 in
the morning (his wife getting up to
get his breakfast before he left) and
arrived home in the evening at 7
o'clock (after which he had to eat -his
supper and the dishes bad tg be,
washed by his patient wife) . '
His workday was ten hours. He
was on duty occasionally in the even
ing, and also one Sunday a month,
and for this he received $60 a month.
It is quite likely true that some pf
th& men who have not worked for
the companies long get only ?40 a
month, as stated in one of the daily
papers, What kind of a life is -that
