OCTOBER 25, 1921 "In all the world there is nothing so remarkable as a great man, noth ing so rare, nothing which so well repays study." . Theodore Parker. Thinking for Oneself Under the caption "College Courses In Socialism" the Arizona Star refers to a lecture by Miss M. Carey Thompson, president of Bryn Mawr, to the young women of Holyoke, In which she bemoaned the fact that the instructors "are being required to teach not how to make things as they should be, but that things as they exist are right; that the United States con stitution, as written 134 years ago, is perfect; that our highly unsatisfactory government must not be criticized; that the United States flag, which, as we ail know, flies over many cruel injustices which we hope to set right, must be reverenced as a sacred symbol of unchanging social order, of political death in life." In the course of her address Miss Thompson took up Wells' "Outline of .History." which she said was ""lapped up" by "disinterested students" as famished kittens lap up new milk, and thereupon they became International socialists. They were thus, in the opin ion of Miss Thompson, taught "to think, for them selves." We do not know of a more dangerous proceeding than. for one untrained to think, to be allowed to thinkX for himself in matters concerning which he knows nothing; or, when he Is unable to trace the relation of one circumstance to another. All human wisdow and knowledge rest on human experience. No entirely new thing has ever been dis covered. Every discovery in science has borne some relation, near or remote, to some fact that hadbeen previously observed. There has never been a scien tific revolution. Progress has been evolutionary. Th tendency of teachers to try new paths without Inquiry as to where they may lead is not a new one, for many teachers are notoriously impractical. De prived themselves of experience, they cut away from the experiences of others. They hav in mind some Ideal and set out across abysses and morasses toward It. Socialism Is a beautiful ideal. Anarchy Is still 1 ... ', f . . 1 A mi V, .r .tata rt anlctv in t wkich everyone wisely governs himself; In which no ! restraint is put upon any member of society because hei does not need it. In such circumstances there would be no need of laws; we could afford to be lawless. But there have never been such circum-stances. The war developed some curious things in our higher educational system. There was much more of socialism than any of us suspected, and some bolshe ! vism There was widespread internationalism. Long previous to that there had been complaint i that certain great Institutions of learning were too much under the thumb of capitalism, when, as a mat- ' ter of fact, hard-headed trustees, men of practical ex- perience, had only put a check'upon the wild flights of dreamers. A considerable furore was created a 1 few years ago when Dr. Scott Nearing, a member of the faculty of an eastern university, was displaced be cause of his teachings. He was regarded as a victim rt capitalism. But, once freed of restraint, he turned out under surveillance as a suspected enemy of the gov ernment. A few years ago almost every college or university student who had given special attention to political economy emerged, on graduation, a free-trader. The text books dealt with ideal conditions, prevailing throughout the world, the same conditions existing in all countries with respect to prdouction and raw materials. It was, moreover, regarded as a sign of scholarship to be a free-trader. In those days, at least, the professors had no other knowledge of com merce and industry than they gathered from the text books, and the writers of the text books had "thought for themselves." They had taken account only of ideal but nonexistent conditions such conditions as we would all welcome, but which could come about only in an ideal state of society involving the entire abolition df selfishness and the revamping of human nature. Prohibition and Automobiles We do not think any of our readers can question The Republican's position with respect to prohibition or the sincerity of its desire to see prohibition en- ' forced. The abolition of the saloon was the longest forward step the country- has taken since the aboli- tion of slavery. It is no less important that alcoholic liquors should be placed beyond the reach of all. The mere wiping out of the saloons has not accom plished that, but in time we feel sure that it will be done. It may take years; maybe a generation. We favor the employment of whatever means by which prohibition may be enforced, which may con- " tribute to the enforcement. But we seriously ques tion whether the plan adopted by the state corpora tion commission of removing from automobile deal ers the protection which securities companies give them against loss by the confiscation of cars against which the dealers have claims and which may be Wkn in the hands of bootleggers. Very few car3 lfave been so taken. Cars are usu ally sold on time to persons whom the dealers have reason to believe are respectable and responsible citi tns. Most dealers have therefore had no experience with bootleggers, and the securities companies have suffered only inconsequential losses. But the securities companies have derived con siderable revenue from insuring the dealers against u'.l losses from possible confiscation, though in not one case in a hundred is there really any risk as sumed. j It they are. deprived of the ritdit so to insure cars (, threaten to withdraw fiom the slate, so that the dealers must either be prepared to handle all the paper they take on cars sold on time, or sell for cash. Very few purchasers of cars are prepared to pay cash. No agency could survive if its business were rut on a cash basis. And it is stated that there are less than a half dozen agencies in Arizona that could handle their own paper on a credit basis. We will grant that now and then a car sold by an automobile agency will be used by the purchaser in the violation of the prohibition law, though perhaps a majority of such cars are either stolen cars or cars on which an agency has no claim. But should the automobile agencies of Arizona be destroyed on the mere chance of throwing an obstacle in the way of a bootlegger? The Telegraphers and the Strike Speaking further of the vote of the railway tel egraphers to join the country-wide railway strike, now that we come to think of it, that was about the most useless action of which we can conceive. If the trains can not be stopped by the withdrawal of engineers, firemen, conductors, brakemen and switch men from the service, they could not be stopped by the desertion by the telegraphers of their keys. And if the trains could be stopped there would be nothing for the telegraphers to do. In some ways the action of the telegraphers re minds us of the comprehensively sighted farmer who cut a big hole and a little one in the door of his barn so that both the little dog and the big dog could have ingress and egress. We can see how a revolt of the telegraphers might further complicate and embarrass a disorganized railway service, but a strike that cannot accomplish more than a disorganization and partial paralysis of a service is already doomed to failure. If a "tieup" is not complete it is not a tieup at all. The Larger House Submitted to him as an abstract proposition, that of enlarging the membership of the house of repre sentatives, the average citizen will declare that the house membership is already too large; that the busi ness of the nation would be transacted more promptly and equally as well if there were not so many fingers in the pie The members already In congress have no personal Interest in increasing the membership. The fewer there are of them, the greater will be the shares of honor of each. So it would seem that there is little chance of enlarging the membership, since neither the existing members want it and their individual constituents do not want it But the constituent as an individual and the constituent in the mass are two very different persons, though both may be wear ing the same hat. The former objects to the expense of a more nu merous membership as well as the unwieldiness of a house to the point of inefficiency. But the con stituent in the mass wants the state in which he re sides to have as many members of the house as pos sible. Every congressional district would rather be two districts than one. p But perhaps the individual constituent would not actively concern himself about the matter if left to himself. But he Is stirred up by the politician and place-hunter, and to the place-hunter elysium is that state of society in which there is an infinity of places with good salaries. A bigger house is a further ap proach to elysium. The better plan would be to stick to the constitu tion, to that part of it which provides for proportional representation. As a matter of fact, not one citizen in a thousand or ten thousand could say offhand six months after reapportionment which states gained and which lorr representation in the process. Moreover, one first clas representative can bring more prestige to a state than a dozen mediocre members. If any change at all is to be made in the size of the house of representatives it should be to reduce the number of the members. The houuse is too big as it is. It sprawls all over itself and is unnecessarily costly to the taxpayers for mere physical mainte .nance. And when it comes to supporting the house of representatives, every living person, every man, woman and child in the country is a taxpayer regard less of ownership of property. It is said that an additional expense of a half mil lion dollars a year would be entailed by the proposed Increase of 25 members. Why even consider this use less expense when the watchword of the nation is economy? WANTED A PEACE-MAKER Mr. Chesterton has served notice that he will not visit the United States again until it has freed itself of prohibition. Adieu. A last long and happy fare well to Mr. Chesterton, though he become a competi tor of Methusilah. We' w-ere reminded yesterday of the procession and succession of the seasons. Summer cannot last always even in the Salt River valley. A fashion note says that by next midsummer half of the men will be wearing knee pants. If so, the other half will be standing on the corner guying them. How long will the entente allow Charles to sit on the Hungarian throne if he should secure it? President Harding has tried to make it clear to those who expect things to be done in the twinkling of an eye that the accomplishments in the disarma ment conference may fall short of heated imagination. Admission to Moscow theaters, it is said, is paid with vegetables. We have heard of American theater goers carrying decayed vegetables, even antiquated eggs, past the box office. "MRS. LADY" A woman who said "Call me plain Mrs. Lady" drove up to a sehoolhou.se in New York city and dis tributed an auto load of apples to 2000 children. This unusual performance halted traffic for 10 minutes, the traffic cops gleefully assisting. Farmers, instead of letting food rot because selling price doesn't pay for the trouble of marketing, would get much happiness if they hauled food into poor districts of cities and distributed it to the job less. The satisfaction of being a "Mrs. Lady" beats wheat at $3.50 a bushel. JOKE A great joker was Hugh Brennan, 32 years old, of Lynn, Mass. His favorite prank on fellow-motor-men, when he was off duty, was to run into the street and fall down in front of a street car. That upset the nerves ot the electric driver and Hugh got many a laugh. The other morning he tried his trick before a car driven by motorman Pat Connolly. The brakes didn't work. P-rennan has a fractured skull. Every prac tical joker eventually causes a serious accident. Un fortunately, it is not always to himself - ' i i T WOMEN IN POLITICS BY DR. FRANK CRANE (Copyright, 1921, by Frank Crane) WHY PRICES STAY HIGH By Frederic J. Haskin WASHINGTON, Oct. 20 "Why," demands an editor out in the corn belt, "does the retailer charge from 35 to 40 cents a pound for pork chops when hogs cost him only 6 or 7 cents?" He is one of a chorus singing dif ferent words to the same tune. A man down in Oklahoma wants to know why he cannot tote enough hides across the street on his back to buy a pair of shoes. A man in Geor gia wants to know why cotton enough to make a tent won't buy an undershirt. And a farmer in Mary land asks why apples, such as he fed to his hogs because it would not pay to haul them to market, sell for 5 cents each on the fruit stands. All of these questions have been asked many times. They have also been loudly answered with the asser tion that retail prices are too high, which is of course merely begging the question. Sometimes it is added that the retailer is a profiteer, which is generally not true and certainly sheds no light on the situation. When the editor's query was laid before certain marketing experts in the government service, it waslearned that the question is a good deal more complicated than those who blame the retailer and let it go at that, ever imagined. The department of agri culture is making a study of the re tail prices of farm products in all of the principal American cities. It is going to find out just why these prices are so inordinately high and why the farmer gets such a small share of the large price that the con sumer pays. The government men do not care to be quoted, nor to make any extensive comment, until this investigation has been completed. But in the meantime they throw out a few hints. In the first place, they say, don't be too quick to blame the retailer. Retail prices, probably are too high, but they are not as much too high as you think. The retailer has been facing a dull market for a long time now. His great need is to turn over his stock. It is extremely probable that he would reduce prices if he could afford to do so, in order to stimulate trade. In many cases, of course, he has done so. The papers are full ot oargain eaie auvcruw ments. Yet the average of retail prices remains high. Cost of Railing High This, say the experts, is partly be cause the cost of retailing, as a busi ness operation, is high. Out of the 35 cents that you pay for pork chops, the retailer must pay, not only the price of the pork at wholesale, but also the rent of his store, the cost of the ice on which he kept the pork, the wages of the man who cut it and sold it to you, the paper in which it was wrapped, and the upkeep of the vehicle in which it was delivered. The experts do not seem to know exactly what percentage of the cost of those pork chops is represented by each of these elements in its transfer. That is probably one of the things their investigation will re veal. But they think that the price paid for the pork is less than half of the total cost of getting it from wholesaler to consumer. And all of these factors in the operation have risen in cost. Rent, wages, ice. pa per, gasoline no one needs to be told that all of these things are from 10 to 100 per cent higher than they were in 1913. Remember, too, that with many persons out of work and money tight the retailer is doing a smaller than normal business. But he still pays the same rent and ho probably has to maintain about the same staff, uu reduction in expenses, in a word, is not in proportion to his reduction in holiness. That means tnai me cost each sale is higher than it would be if he wero doing a big business. If the butcher only sold one pound of pork chops in a day he would have to get $10 or 15 for it in order to break even. As a matter of fact the profiteer ing retailer is probably a raru bird lust now. A few of them are perhaps making large profits by sticking to war time prices, but many more of them are only hoping to make ex penses until better times come along. The difficulty, explains the expert, lies in the fact that retail prices and wages and farmers' earnings are all on different levels. In order that our clumsy industrial system may work at all, they must te on the same level. . . . P.rmer Felt Drop First w-hen nr.ccs began to drop drop fell on the farmer fust. .u of.wk-B of footstuffs on the buvers refused to give him a i,(h r, tor what he raised. J.ut ii.fc. , , ,,,,,,, sell. i?o iic saler and retailer r fus d wages remained high, and any co operation and storage, both of which the farmer lacked, they were able to keep up their prices to a great extent. But the farmers form about 40 per cent of the buying public. Having very little money, this large section of the buying public nought very lit tle. Manufacturers of farm imple ments immediately felt the pinch. Their sales in many cases fell off more than half. Other manufacturing lines also felt it. As a result factory employees were thrown out of work. Unemployment set in. It affected millions. So the buying public was still further reduced, demand declin ed still more, the cost of every re taiing operation rose and the retailer with his high prices was less than ever in a position to reduce them. It is a" statement which is easy to understand, but hard to remedy. If a bushel of potatoes would buy a pair of shoes in 1913, but it takes two bushels of potatoes to buy a pair of shoes now. then the potato growers can only buy half as many shoes now as in 1913. One result is that employees of shoe factories will be thrown out of jobs. Then they can't buy any shoes, either. Really, the farmer, if at all intelli gent, is in an enviable position. He at least can eat. It is only the farm er who raises nothing but one money crop who now suffers the man who raises only tobacco, or cotton, for ex ample. The farmer who produces hogs and chickens and keeps dairy cattle and raises potatoes and beans and other vegetables, need go to market for very little of his food. He is vast ly better off than that ex-shoe fac tory employee, for example. Business will never pick up until the farmer once more is able to buy a pair of shoes with a bushel of po tatoes. That can be accomplished either by giving the farmer more or the shoemaker less. The diagnosis is easy, but tne only remedy seems to be a slow process of readjustment. o 1 Questions And Answers (Any reader can get the answer to any question by writing The Repub lican Information Bureau.

Another woman has been elected to the House of Commons and will now be the playmate of Lady Astor. She is Mrs. Thomas Wintringham, widow and a Member for Louth. She has been elected as a Liberal and succeeds her husband, who died in the House of Commons Library. Other women have in recent years taken their ace in National Councils. We have had women in the National Legislature of the United States. A woman delegate has sat in the meeting of the League of Na tions at Geneva. These two women are now Members of the House of Commons in England. Other women have been chosen for elective and appointive positions in other States. They are but drops before the coming shower. There is little doubt that more and more women will take their place in public life, for the reason that that is where they naturally belong. And that is the position for which their peculiar temperament and qualities fit them. Government is a woman s business not a man s. It is in the nature of housekeeping. The man's busi ness is to produce, to work, and to adventure. The natural sphere of a woman is to conserve what ne gams. And that is all government ought to be merely a taking care of the results which man has attained. Some people look upon the entrance of women into politics as threatening the home, and they are sad. Others look upon the same thing and are gleeiul, . because thev do not believe in the home. Both of these are wrong. Woman will never lose her place in the home. That is where she naturally belongs, and so long as there are homes women wall rule them, and so long as there are children women will bring them up. But the point is that woman is an individual, bne is engaged in the home business, which is the conserv ing business, just as man is engaged witn tne outsiae world, which is the producing business. And there is no reason why the home-maKer ana conservator should not have her place in the affairs of State as well as the outside adventurer. i Indeed, a mind trained to the care of children and the affairs of a home is better qualified to run affairs of State than a mind that has been .trained in a lawyer's office or a dry goods store. - Little by little we are coming to see the folly of the idea of government leadership. It is not the busi ness of a government to lead. Leadership is the prov ince of the individual life and voluntary organizations. The sole business of government is to preserve the peace and maintain the mutual rights of individuals and voluntary organizations. In other words, government ought to govern and not to rule. Government should follow and not lead. Government is preservative and not constructive. In proportion as we1 get hold of this idea we shall see that government is peculiarly woman's place. Let us hope that the time is not far off when all mayors, governors, presidents, councillors, and legis lators, or at least the majority of them, are feminine. This will release a lot of husky men who had better be out making a living and doing something con structive. . "War does not pay," so declares Pierre S. 1'u Pont, chairman of the 1C. I.

Coockroft, hydrographer for the Edison Electric company, arrivea Saturday from Lee's Ferry, where the company has made application te the federal power commission and the water commissioner ot Arizona for a power site. It Is now engaged in preliminary work to save time in the event of the granting of the permit. This work consists ot the survey of the highline and measurements of the river, flow in the latter, the United States geological survey co operating. Tee weather bureau alse has established an evaporation sta tion at that point. There are five parties in the field along the Colo rado, the Green and the San Juan rivers. The surveying is nearly fin ished but the gathering of the resl of the data will run over Into next year. It is estimated that this work will furnish power equal to one-fourth of all the water rower now In use In the United States; that it will hold enough wat r to irrigate 1,225,000 acres. The dam will have a height of betwen 400 and 500 feet and will back up the water in Green river for 200 miles, making all the stretch navigah'.e. It is believed that the lake thus created together with the roads that will be built in consequence of con struction, will open to the world th'f beautiful, interest ng but hitherto al most unknown region.
