The daylight saving plan for Wis
consin Rapids will largely be deter
mined by the petition now being cir
culated in the city by committees of
the local Chamber of Commerce. It is
proposed that the city adopt the plan
on midnight of April 10 and keep it
until midnight of October Ist. It will
mean that the clocks will be set ahead
exactly one hour during that period.
Visit Industries.
Many of the local industries will be
or have been visited by representa
; tives of the Chamber of Commerce
who are securing signatures on the
petitions. Local industries are also
taking a hold of the situation as for
example the Consolidated which start
|e and a questionnaire among its em
ployees to determine their will about
the saving plan. The men are asked to
vote yes or no on the proposition. The
local houses will also be visited on the
plan to determine the will of the busi
ness district. It is expected that the
local people will favor the plan.
Has Many Advantages.
There are many advantages to the
plan of saving daylight, chief among
them being the privilege of enjoying
daylight for a longer part of the day,
the evenings especially when people
want to work in their gardens, on
their lawns, take outings and motor
trips. The clocks being set ahead will
not mean earlier opening of stores or
earlier time to report for work as far
as the hour basis is concerned. Eight
1 o’clock new time will be eight o’clock
but it will come one hour earlier by
the sun.
Some objections are raised, the main
one being, inconvenience to the out
side people w r ho come here. It is
thought that the advantages will out
weigh the objections.—Daily Tribune.
We personally believe the change
will revert to the majority of our peo
ple and therefore we favor it.
People who are annoyed by gossip
are generally the ones who listen to it.
“Life is getting slow again,” re
marked a leading citizen as he laid
aside his morning paper.
Perhaps it is. Yet in the last twen
ty-four hours he has traveled two
million miles. Some jaunt, that, even
for one who is accustomed to hitting
the pace.
But of course, he traveled along
with the earth, and never gave a
thought to the speed at which he was
tearing through space. We seldom
more than half think when we do any
thinking at all.
The Chicago river interferes with
the growth and beauty of the Windy

to the job. No, there is no wind in
this item, even if there is plenty of
it in Chicago.

The wife of a Red Cross worker
has brought suit for divorce against
him. While overseas this misrepre
sentative of a noble band married a
demure French lassie, unmindful of
the fact that he had left a wife in the
states. Later there was a child.
Wife No. 1 preferred her freedom to
being linked up to a brute, even
though he wore the emblem of the
Red Cross.
The respectable brute creation,
how’ever, will probably object to hav
ing this animal classed as one of them.
The red terror is gripping Germany,
iust as the German terror tried to
grip France and England, and would
have done had not the American foot

The German terror, devoid of teeth,
orobably knows now how it feels to
have another terror gripping it.
And yet we can not help a feeling
that the German terror of war days
consisted of the kaiser, the aristocacy,
and the militaristic class. The com
mon people were simply herded up
and driven to the slaughter.
Terrors are terrifying, no matter
which side they grip.
In Washington they are working on

pennies, while that of rich men and
corporations will be clipped off by the
hundreds of thousands.
That is the gist of the press dis

in error. We prefer to feel that
President Harding, at least, is an ad
vocate of the square deal.

The purpose is to develop a closer
and a very intimate relation with the
Senate and House Committee on
Postoffice and Post Roads; to endeavor
to have these committees jointly oc
cupy a position as nearly as possible
anala;: ous to that of the Board of
Directors in any large business; to
have them advising continually as to
the methods of improvement and oper
ation and to take an active, continuing
and increasing interest in the service.
In addition it is proposed to make
the “Joint Commission on Postal Ser
vice,, occupy a position analagous to
the executive committee of any board
of directors in any large business,
giving still more attention to the busi
ness of the Department and very de
finitely participating in the largest
way in the effort to improve and main
tain the service.
This Joint Commission on Postal
Service was created last year by Act
of Congress and consists of the Chair
man and five members of the Senate
and five members of the House Com
mittees on Postoffice and Post Roads,
and a postaf expert appointed by the
Postmaster General, together with an
Advisory Council provided for in the
Act to serve without pay, consisting
of seven persons experienced in busi
ness and commercial transactions to
aid in its work.
We wish to thank the many friends
of our son and brother for their kind
ness and sympathy shown during his
sickness and death.

WEEK 11-17
By A. E. Frederick,
State Humane Officer
“Think on these things.”—St. Paul.
In the hurry of life we often do not
take time to think. Especially is this
true with regard to our relations to
ward dumb animals. Much neglect
and cruelty is often caused by
This being true, humane workers of
the country have set aside one week in
the year to stimulate activity along
humane lines, and to turn the thoughts
of the nation to the great fundamental
principles of kindness and mercy.
Humane Week, April 11th to 17th,
may be observed in many different
ways. Apropriate humane exercises,
programs, stories, essays, and contests
in the schools on Friday afternoon of
this week, and the discussion of a
humane subject in the pulpits on Sun
day, April 17th, will form effective
means of reaching both young and
old with a message. Then, in the
homes this lesson may also be taught.
Let not only the teacher and the
preacher but also the parent teach and
foster the humane spirit.
Wisconsin, ever at the front in all
great movements, must not fail in
this. There is no greater thought
than that of mercy, no greater ser
mon than that on kindness, and no
greater religion than these virtues
Let us all observe Humane Week,
April 11th tu 17th! Let us stop and
think, that we may learn to be kind!

Our National Postman is certainly
making good. Promptly upon his as
sumption of office he committed him
self with charactertistic directness and
frankness to the achievement of those
reforms of the Department, both sub
jective and objective, of which the
last few years have disclosed so press
ing a need. It was a striking incident
for Mr. Hayes to visit the New York
Postoffice and personally make a
heart-to-heart address to the assembl
ed employees, and to do the same at
Washington, Chicago, and elsewffiere.
No other Postmaster-General in all
our history, we believe, ever did such
a thing. But still more striking was
the occasion of his so doing.
For it is one thing to make fine
promises during a campaign, before
election, and it is a very different
thing to make specific pledges after
election and the assumption of office.
In doing that, Mr. Hays is acting in
accord with President .Harding him
self; who, having made some notable
and specific campaign promises of
radical reforms in the conduct of the
Administration, delighted his friends
and quite flabbergasted his critics by
scrupulously fulfilling them in the
most matter-of-course way. In an
Administration which thus honors its
advance obligations it is perfectly fit
ting and consistent to have other obli
gations incurred after election; and
to have them also loyally fulfilled, as
we have no question these will be.
So far as the subjective interests of
the Postoffice Department are con
cerned, Mr. Hays’s policy is expressed
in a single phrase. He purposes to
humanize it. That intent was mani
fested in his going before the em
ployees as he did, man to man. The
demand of Labor throughout the land
has long been that workmen shall be
regarded by their employers not as
machines or as chattels but as fellow
men. The Postmaster-General is the
head of the greatest industrial estab
lishment in the world, with 300,000
employees on its payrolls. He pledges
himself to regard their labor in com
mon with his own, “not as a mere

ager of the Nekoosa-Edwards Paper
Cos., attended a meeting of the State
Board of Health at Madison the past
week and addressed the meeting on
the general subject of “What the work
of the Industrial Nurse means to In
dustry.” Mr. Rosebush in the course
of his address explained the work ac
complished at the Port Edwards mills
and the work undertaken in the town
itself. He also offered suggestions as
to the future relations of the industri
al nurse and the public welfare.
Health in communities was also ex
plained by Mr. Rosebush, who recom
mended certain higher standards for
the care of children.
The meeting was held under the
supervision of Mrs. Mary Morgan, di
rector of Child Welfare of the State
Board of Health. Miss Lemmon of
the Consolidated Cos. in this city and
Miss Bea, of Riverview Hospital, also
attended the meeting.
