A convincing presentation of the need of the west side
for a grade school building was made to the board of educa
tion. This section of the city has grown rapidly and new
houses are building every season; there is no school serving
large section of the city, and it is too much to require
little children to tramp a mile to school. All but one of the
school buildings now are crowded, because of the rapid
growth ot the city. The need of the West side existed, how
ever, before this growth affected all schools. The Will school
was unfortunately located, being almost in the business sec
tion, and may have to be abandoned in a few years.
Cost of the school system is high, the taxes levied have
not met running expenses, and there is a real demand for
economy. It would be poor economy, however, for Bismarck |
to spend several hundred thousand dollars paving her streets, i
planning a park system and generally building up the city, j
and at the same time deny the right of good schools. The
Richholt school was built during a period of high costs, yet
forward-looking citizens will find pride in the fact that al-!
though it was believed this school would meet the need of
future years the growth of the city has been so rapid that
it is now hardly adequate to serve the needs of the east side
Bismarck is rightly proud of her school system, and can
not afford to have it anything but the best in the state, j
There may be debate upon the wisdom of expenditure of
money upon some-phases of the present school curriculum, I
but there can be none upon the proposition that the city '
ought to provide that every child may be well grounded in ;
the fundamentals of education.
Iron used to be made illicitly and sold “on the quiet,”
same as moonshine liquor is bootlegged today.
Before our country won its independence, England made
it a crime to manufacture iron in her colonies. The idea,
of course, was to protect the iron-makers in England.
This didn’t stop the Americans of that period who had
the boptlegging germ in their blood. They found a sheltered
place in the forest, difficult,to approach, and set up their
blast furnaces. '
Tiie remains of one of the furnaces still exist near
Youngstown, 0., says Prof. Herbert M. Boylston of Case
School of Applied Science, in Cleveland.
Human nature seems to hate prohibition of any kind.
Maybe you experience a craving to touch a painted surface
which a sign warns you is fresh and wet. Or you may feel
a hot metal wave of resentment at the sign: “Private
Keep Out. This Means You.”
Many a grown man can recall how as a boy he got his
tongue stuck fast to the cold iron pump handle, during win
ter—all because he had been indelibly cautioned not to do it.
Tell the nation that instantaneous death would result
from pulling the lobe of the left ear four times in rapid suc
cession, and the undertakers would do a big business. Thou
sands could not resist.
All this explains why it is so difficult to enforce prohibi
tion. As soon as a thing is prohibited, a crop of law-breakers
springs up, ready to take a chance at violating the law for
profit. This was true of the “iron bootlegger” prior to 1776.
It is true of the liquor bootlegger today.
The greatest law-breaker, ethically, is the customer wTio
provides the profit—the incentive.
On top of all this is the peculiar psychological fact that,
as soon as a thing is prohibited, people who never thought
of committing the prohibited act suddenly develop a mis
chievous craving to try it at least once.
Radium, most mysterious substance in the universe,
drops to the lowest price ever. Seventy thousand dollars
buys as much radium as $120,000 bought six months ago.
Important news for the hundreds of thousands with
It is disheartening that even radium, the marvel healer,
is subject to the same law of supply and demand as every
day necessities. The price is down because supply exceeds
buying—though the total supply of pure radium in the world
is not much more than five ounces.
Federal courts in the New York district are swamped
with untried cases. Piled up behind the three district judges
are'about 23,000 cases waiting to be heard. Many of these
will-be tyo or three years “coming to bat.”’
Hut the situation merely reflects on a large scale the
condition of most American courts most of the time. We
need a referee system to examine all cases before putting
the® to judge and jury, and throw out foolish disputes, also
ones that could be settled by compromsie. T[oo many laws.

M. Stalin, commissar of minori
ties, in a report to the All-Russian
Soviet Congress, urges the unifica
tion of Rumia and the resoration
of the old boundaries. To hack up
his recommendations M. Stalin de-
I ( lores that small autonomous re
; -publics cannot exist without Rus
sia proper, while Russia cannot
satisfactorily re-establish her na
tional life without their cordial
support. Needless to say, the con
gress heartily commended the
stand taken by the commissar.
It is true that a multiplicity of
small states, each with its govern
ment to support and an army to
maintain, involves a considerable
tax upon the people and that union
would he not only more economical
hut more effective, provided always
that there was a homogeneous
population in the group, each al
lied with the -others by a common
language, a common race and
common interest. —Taconva Ledger.

The first detachments of French
engineers have already moved into
the Ruhr, but the exact nature of
M. Poincare’s program of seizures
is still an official secret. The
most important point about the
program yet to be established is
the part which the military is to
play. This is obviously a vital
point. A certain military escort
ipust of course he provided for the
engineers and civil administrators
who are to take over the mines,
forests .industries and other pro
ductive agencies, but the fact that
every soldier and every expense
adds to the total German bill indi
cates the possibility of a vicious
circle which might have most dan
gerous consequences. One of the
heaviest burdens which the pres
ent German budget carries is the
cost of the existing limited occu
pation—a former German Minister
of State has testified that the item
is even now four-fifths of the-whole
ordinary budget. Any unnecessary
expense to which France puts her
self in the new occupation, there
fore, will plunge Germany deeper
into debt, prolong the occupation,
and so set in motion an endless
process with only one possible
culmination. The economical con
duct of the occupation is accord
ingly one of the test 3 of French
good faith.
The wisdom of the French policy
will be judged by its efficacy in
producing the reparations money
without smashing Germany. The
penalities to/ be imposed . cannot
fail to disturb German industry
and to retard the recovery of world
commerce, but M. Poincare will
have justified his polity if he can
collect his claims without having
worked permanent injury to the
German capital establishment.
This way of going about the collec
tion is reminiscent of the 'boy who
drank alcohol acid to see if his
system could stand it, but since
France refuses to entertain more
constructive programs, such as
that proposed by Secretary Hughe's,
she must be permitted to make the
experiment. If the program fails
to produce the reparations, or if in
the process of collection Germany
is ruthlessly destroyed, the strong
suspicion, perhaps unjustified, will
he that France went in with puni
tive or aggressive, rather than
fiscal, ideas. j .
Though It is our conviction that
the French program involves un
necessary risks, both to present
world stability and future peace,
we sincerely hope for its success.
By “success” we of course mean
the collection of. reparations in
cash and material without tha
economic ruin-of Germany.' In the

Bismarck, the capital city of North
Dakota, is situated “by a bend in
the Missouri,*’ where : t seems to
command the terr tory far to the
East and West of the river. While
Bismarck is a very up-to-date city,
there are many things yet lacking,
or which may be improved upon let
Us, then, devote some time to these.
Firstly: Our people are ncreas
ing, and iijcreas ng rapidly. We need
more/ schools to accomodate the
younger generation. One or two
grade schools should be built and
ar. addition to the high school should
also be built.
Secondly: A clean, neat, beautiful
city appeals to those who are look
ing for a new home. Our populat on
will grow tremendously if we beau
t l*y our city. A general clean up of
the city is commendable. Vacant lots
should not be left to nature’s care.
Citizen's must do their part by keep
ing a clean yard. The eapitol grounds
should be preserved. Turk boards

horrors of insomnia. He is now
sleeping like a normal person should.
But he told me something more won
derful than that. His spectacles had
irritated the skin back of one of his

ger and ever more painful. Doctors
in South Africa told him it was some
strang fibrous growth and advised
him to consult surgeons in England.
He isn’t going to, because he tells
me that since he has been here in

its former size and is still decreasing.
He believes it will go away entirely.

Dusty Coat, the fairy sandman,

“You don t say so,” repled M ke
with admiration. “Would you mind
letting me hear a jihgle or two?”
“Not in the least,” said Philip ob

He’s got a voice like a rubber-boot.
He sings no better than old gum
And he’s always yelling out, ‘who
who, who?' ”
“Tee heel’ sniggered Mike Mole.
“That’s fine! When did you think
of it?”
“I’ve always thought of it,” de
clared Philip with a wave of h s
hand. “Only I couldn’t say it be
cause I was afraid he’d hear me.
