THE TWIN-CITY-INDUSTRIAL PLAN
The ideas of cooperation between Bismarck and Man
dan which John F. Sullivan proposed at last week s
Kiwanis luncheon here may germinate if allowed to lie
dormant, but why put off for tomorrow what can be done
today?
Almost any day situations may arise concerning the
interests of the two cities wherein the existence of a
bicity committee to adjust them in conformity with he
mutual and individual interests of the two communities
would be highly desirable. A committee. not only to
disentangle conflicting interests, but a committee that
from time to time might discover occasions initiating
joint activities toward some desirable objective promising
betterments for both cities.
Such a committee could put into action at once some
of the cooperative ideas expressed by Mr. Sullivan. It
could lay the groundwork of others. By drawing the
commercial forces of the two cities together in under
standing and imbuing them with common ideals for the
business and industrial future of the twin communities,
a great stride forward to meet and grasp the opportuni
ties in time to come to North Dakota, when industry will
knock at its doors, will have been gained. The time is
here to consider that future now.
As Mr. Sullivan pointed out, the location of the two
cities is strategic for utilizing both rail and water trans
portation. They have the advantage of two railroad sys
tems. The direction of shipments, in the nature of the
markets, would be southward, and, If made by the river,
the load would move with the current, a saving of me
chanical energy. This possibility involves no great
stretch of the imagination. Already moves are under way
in congress to re-establish this w'ater transportation
once so thriving in the old days as to promise a me
tropolis here. Senator Lynn J. Frazier has introduced
a bill for linkinng up the Mississippi and Missouri rivers,
leaving the problem of channels and other improvements
which navigability might require to a board of 12 engi
neers.
It was a striking idea which Mr. Sullivan put forth for
Inducing industry to locate in North Dakota. Basing his
proposal on what North Dakota has to offer for manu
fadturing, he suggested that industries be encouraged to
come in which would process and fabricate the raw ma
terials that the state can furnish for manufacturing pur
poses—such as its lignite and its incomparable 6weet
com. It was such manufacturing investments that he
suggested the state might well spare from income taxa
tion in order to persuade them to locate in North Dakota.
Those industries which would have to bring in the
products of other states might be left to pay taxation as
at present imposed.
While that was something that necessarily would have
to wait for the convening of another legislature, it is an
idea worth considering now. The proposed joint com
mittee representing the commercial organizations might
even take it up and undertake to sell it to the other com
munities of the state, so that, two years hence, intelligent
action could be got under way on it by the. state, law
makers. North Dakota has all to gain and nothing to
lose, at least, from getting under way this much of a
program for developing industry along with the splendid
policy of encouraging diversified farming which various
organizations are backing and the state encouraging.
FOR THIS MUCH, THANKS
In England the popular sport still seems to be diag
nosing American prosperity and industrial progress. It
is the chief theme of British editorializing.
Once in a while an Englishman has a word of praise for
the American order of things. Tor instance, there was
the prominent member of parliament who announced
that he liked Hollywood films and none other, even
though the American motion picture industry was keep
ing the British industry on the verge of bankruptcy.
And then there was the London writer on trade and
engineering who had this to say lately about the secret
of American getting-along:
“The evidence seems to indicate that the American
workman works harder, though for a shorter time, than
his British confrere. He has the advantage of far more
machinery and the output per man is greater than here,
but the chief difference in the conditions is that there is
no limit to hours that may be worked in time of stress;
there is no limit to the money that a man may earn,
and there are very few restrictions on what a man may
do."
Apparently American jibes at the “tired business man"
go unnoticed abroad. For the British writer observes
that the average American executive works harder than
is customary in his land and devotes a great deal more
time out of office hours to obtaining business knowledge.
ON A NEW TRACK
The old-time farmer who planted his corn in the “new
of the moon" and his potatoes when Luna was in hiding;
who depended upon the zodiac signs for guidance in cut
ting weeds and weaning pigs, scoffed at the idea of con
sulting “city fellers" concerning planting, harvesting or
marketing his crops.
How different from his predecessor is the modern
farmer! He sends his sons to agricultural schools and
consults experts as faithfully as the imaginary invalid
consults her family doctor. Moreover, be subscribes to
and eagvly reads all the city-edited farm journals.
Nor does the farmer’s dependence on the city man
end there. Congress is predominantly urban, and yet
the fanners have put their trust in the national legis
lature. They seriously believe congress will prescribe the
long-sought panacea for the agricultural ills of the na
tion. And last fall they were divided between Hoover
and Smith, both city men, as the man who could lead
them back to prosperity.
A. tow yean ago the dyed-in-the-wool tiller of the
•oil fanteit even the insinuation that agriculture could
learn anything Horn the city. He held the college of
agricultura l* utter contempt, and scoffed at the idea
that government bureaus and agents could give him
valuable advice. Perhaps one of the reasons Industry has
progressed and prospered more than agriculture is that
it was not above learning all it could from the “country
fellow.-’
THE ROMANCE OF DANGER
Due to some queer quirk in human nature, it is hard
for us to consider any trade or calling interesting unless
it has a fair element of danger in it.
Disaster and sudden death are great stimulants to the
imagination. A good half of the average man s interest
in the sea, for instance, is undoubtedly due to the fact
that ships occasionally leave port and are seen no more.
Take away all trace of danger from any trade and you
make of it something prosaic.
There was a striking example of this just the other day,
when a destructive gale ravaged shipping on the great
lakes.
A passenger steamer, disabled by a cracked steam pres
sure chest, drifted for two days close to a lee shore, with
135 people aboard.
A 500-foot steel freight steamer, loaded deep with iron
ore from the Lake Superior mines, went ashore in Lake
Erie and was hammered by the waves for days before her
crew could be rescued.
In Lake Huron a smaller steamer, coming down from
Georgian bay with pulpwood. was strained by the storm
so that her seams opened. She foundered a short time
after the coast guard, by heroic exertions, had managed
to take off her officers and men.
This sort of thing, for some reason, puts a tinge of
romance into the ordinarily unexciting business of great
lakes shipping.
The men who are engaged in it erase to be ordinary
workmen, following an ordinary trade, and become men
whom it is possible to invest with the aura of daring and
adventure.
All of us like to read about the old days of Mississippi
river steamers. The old-tune packet boats are the color
ful furniture of a bygone day. Any novel whose action
is laid in that scene is sure of an audience.
This is partly due to the natural tendency to roman
ticize anything that is of the past. But a good deal of it.
certainly, must be due to the fact that the old river boats
were rather risky affairs. They boilers had a tendency
to blow up; and the picturesque men and women who
traveled on them could never be quite certain that they
were not going to be blown sky-high in the middle of the
night.
It is tht same way with everything. Nothing is really
attractive unless it gives a man at least an outside chance
of losing his life.
This makes one look to the future with melancholy.
Every day things are being made safer and safer. Even
aviation, some day. will be safe and sane. The sea is
getting safer yearly. The risks of railroading arc di-
minishing rapidly.
What will our grandchildren do for thrills?
Editorial Comment
PATRIOTISM AND PLUNDER
(St. Paul Daily News)
Of course the Mexican revolution was a protest against
tyranny, a move to free downtrodden people and all that,
but the boys appear to have gathered up quite a bit of
loot as they went along, and not only the boys in charge
but some of those who stayed so far behind that they
never came within speaking distance of the rear guard.
It is not surprising, therefore, to discover two of the
gang trying to make Europe via New York with three
quarters of a million in a little black bag, or to learn
that one of them held a gambling concession under a
great patriot leader, while the other was content to act
as his secretary.
It can hardly be denied that there are hearts in Mexico,
as well as some other places, which bleed with uplift and
reform, but somehow the blood seems to flow much freer
when plunder is in sight.
THE CATTLE COUNTRY
(St. Paul Dispatch)
Fifty head of fancy Hereford yearlings from Glen
Ullin, North Dakota, opened the cattle market at South
St. Paul on Monday with the record price of $14.50 a
hundredweight. Swift Brothers, the North Dakota pro
ducers, received approximately $5,500 for the lot.
Glen Ullin is in the heart of the range where the cow
boys reigned for many years. It is not far from where
the late Theodore Roosevelt “rode herd’’ on cattle and on
cattle rustlers when he was deputy sheriff. In his day,
Morton county, for judicial purposes, ran from the Mis
souri river to the Montana line. So great was the faith
in the area as a profitable cow country that the Marquis
de Mores, who came to Dakota in 1883, built a packing
plant to convert the longhorns into meat. The tall
smokestack and some of the buildings are still to be seen
from trains passing through Medora.
The Marquis had visions but he was a half century
ahead of his time. The old longhorn even when fat with
the best buffalo grass was a tough customer. It needed
corn or grain as a finish. That is what has happened to
the old cow country. Herefords and other purebred an
imals have replaced the racing roaming tough steer. The
new breed is carefully conditioned on grain raised on the
range, with the result that when the old cow country
enters the market its products take the top price. Roose
velt and de Mores were right. It is the cow country for
the right kind of cows.
HOOVER AND THE SENATE
(New York Times)
In the final vote in the senate on the debenture
amendment to the farm relief bill, 47 to 44, there was
displayed a surprising readiness to override the president.
He was wounded in the house of his friends. Here he is,
only a little more than two months after inauguration,
after having been elected by an Immense majority, with
a formidable party revolt flaring up in the senate. It
is as if Mr. Hoover deliberately chose his battleground,
and senators moved with alacrity to meet him on it.* It
was not a case of rumors or second-hand information
about the president’s opposition to the debenture plan.
He openly and boldly attacked it, giving reason after rea
son why it should not be added to the farm bill passed
by the house of representatives. Some are saying now
that if he had only threatened to veto the bill, with the
debenture amendment attached to it. enough wavering
senators would have been found to stand by him. But
this is. foolish. He could not sign the bill, denatured and
debentured, without stultifying himself. His plain-spoken
letter to Senator McNary was as definite a commitment
to a veto as if he had gone before a notary and made
oath that he would not sign the bill. The senate knew
this perfectly well. Yet, by an alliance between short
sighted Democrats and rebellious Republicans, it chose to
go on record as defying the president and threatening to
do its best to thwart him in the great purpose which he
had in calling the special session of congress.
One of the senators now opposed to him on this meas
ure, as previously opposed to Mr. Hoover’s attitude to
ward the World court, is Mr. Borah. His case excites
special wonder. This is not because he is “agin the gov
ernment.’’ That has long been his customary position.
But so sudden and complete a break with Mr. Hoover is
amazing. For Senator Borah was the chief campaigner
for Mr. Hoover last year. He certified the candidate to
the country in every way. Besides all that, it was he who
induced Mr. Hoover to promise to call congress in extra
ordinary session to enact the bill for farm relief. Con
gress has met, the president has indicated the kind of
bill he wants, and Senator Borah is against it! If that
wonderful friendship and political backing were so soon
to be done for, people will be asking whatever they were
begun for.
More than personal clashes or party differences are in
volved. In this early blow at the president by the sen
ate the fate of his administration is clearly at hazard.
The president’s authority has been directly challenged.
He will have to fight for it. or imperil his own prestige
and even his official life. A rupture like this cannot be
cured by sticking-plaster. Vigorous measures are neces
sary. The indications have been that the president would
seek to rally the house of representatives to his support,
and thus endeavor, with public opinion on his side, to
overawe the senate. That will be a terribly difficult
thing to do but something pf the kind must be attempted
unless the president Is willing to see his administration
fatally weakened at its very beginning.
SUMMER.
Rosie Stanley was 16 and a gypsy,
and Rosies father, William Stanley,
got $2,700 for Rosie as a bride. Not a
fortune, but high as brides go, and
if Rosie had not been quite so comely
as she was. her father would have had
to be content with a smaller sale
price.
Chief Gregory John of the Phila
delphia John tribe of gypsies paid
the $2700 for his 17-year-old son,
Frank John, who wanted Rosie for
his bride.
It was a great wedding down on the
banks of the Ohio river in Louisville,
Ky., the other day. There was a sim
ple, colorless legal ceremony to satisfy
the laws of the state. Then the real
ceremony began with all the gorgeous
pageantry of gypsy custom, with sing
ing and music and ropes of wild flow
ers.
RELUCTANT BRIDE
The traditional reluctance of the
bride to be won and the aggressive
ness of the groom was symbolized by
the bride tarrying in her tent until
“reluctantly” dragged forth by the
groom and his parents to his own
tent.
Traditions are powerful things.
In a social age with more females
than men, with marriage no longer
as essential to either set as it once
was, but with it perhaps more of an
asset to women today than men, we
continue to carry out the old idea
that the maiden is wooed reluctantly,
and gypsy Rosies aren't the only ones
who must be dragged, even if only in
pretense.
* * *
LONG MAY THEY REIGN
More power to the color of gypsy
weddings. Here's hoping that our
great national passion for standard
ization won't cause authorities to
stop being content with their legal
ceremony, and Insist that that be the
only one. Somebody or other has
tried outlawing European gypsies,
forcing them to wear shoes, live in
houses, stop roaming, and do even as
all the rest of us.

A NEW COMPLAINT
(By Alice Judson Peale)
It used to be the fashion to com
plain that children had too much of
a will of their own; that they were
headstrong in their impulses apd
shockingly persistent in getting what
they wanted.
Now we have a new complaint. The
modern nursery school teacher, who
sees many children each year, asserts
that she finds them entirely too plas
tic, too easily persuaded, too readily
diverted from their genuine interests.
She feels it to be one of her chief
duties to protect the young child's
embryonic personality from the en
croachments of dominating grownups
and older children.
A parent, an older playmate, may
readily play a devastating part in the
life of a small child. Adult approval
and disapproval place values gn types
of response which are not important
to the child’s own development.
In trying to please his superiors he
follows paths which are not the ones
of real growth for him. Especially
does the influence of personalities
tend to take the child away from his
attack on his immediate physical en
vironment and make him play upon
the theme of sociability and personal
response.
The child needs a background of se
curity in his parents’ love and inter
est, but he needs to be free, to weave
his patterns of self initiated activities,
and to register his own individual
responses.
The nursery school is able to
achieve with relative ease what we
at home will find great difficulty in
doing. We can, however, resolve to
let our youngster find things from in
truding our personalities, our stand
ards, when he is engrossed in his own
pursuits.
A good share of his day We can
leave him alone with plenty of good
play materials. We* can protect him
from the presence of overwhelming
older children while we seek for him
companions of his own age.

SOME PINEAPPLE RECIPES
The pineapple is a multiple fruit,
as all of the little sections are really
fruits growing out of a central core.
When the pineapple is small, it is
covered with many purplish-blue
flowers, one in each eye. As it ma
tures, the flowers drop off, and the
closely packed individual berries be
come consolidated into one juicy solid
fruit.
It is difficult to obtain good fresh
pineapple ixi this country because it
must be picked green for shipment.
The best fruit reaches us in canned
form, as it may be allowed to com
pletely ripen and develop its full
flavoring upon the plant before being
canned. If you use the fresh fruit,
select on that has yellow around the
little circles. If you cannot get the
pineapple fully ripe, you should set
it aside for a few days to allow it to
become mellow.
The pineapple prepared without
sugar makes a very good fruit to use.
while fasting, and may be used as a
change from the orange to other
fruits.
Unsweetened pineapple juice can be
obtained in most stores and some of
the better class restaurants serve this
in the same manner as orange juice
before breakfast.
The pineapple is especially suitable
as a dessert with a protein meal, as its
combination of fruit acids and other
elements stimulates the gastric juices
and makes the pineapple really a
medicinal fruit especially for dyspep
tics. It also combines well with the
nonstarchy vegetables, but not well
with the starches.
Ripe pineapple contains about 85
per cent water, one-half of 1 per cent
protein, 13 per cent sugar and some
mineral matter, in which potassium,
calcium and magnesium are most
abundant.
Here are a few pineapple recipes:
Pineapple Cream Gelatin
Soak two tablespoonfuls of gelatin
in a small amount of water. Add one
half cup of strained hot pineapple
juice. As this mixture becomes cool,
but not yet solid, fold in a half cup
of whipped cream, a half cup of
crushed pineapple, and a half cup of
cleaned raisins. Place in molds and
allow to harden on ice.
Frosen Canned Pineapple
Do not open the can of pineapple,
but remove the label, placing the en
tire can in a bucket and entirely sur
round it with a mixture of chopped
ice and ice cream salt. This will
freeze in about a half hour, after
which the can may be opened, the
frozen pineapple sliced and served;
or, if you have one of the new elec
trical refrigerators, you can place
the can of pineapple in the freezing
compartment for about a half to
three-quarters of an hour.
Crushed Pineapple Dessert
Plain crushed pineapple served in
individual cups makes a splendid des
sert for a protein meal. If desired,
the pineapple may be garnished with
whipped cream and water-cress or
mint leaves.

LEWIS AND CLARK
The first stage of the most remark
able exploration in American history
began at St. Louis 125 years ago to
day, when Lewis and Clark started the
assent of the Missouri river to ex
plore the vast northwest wilderness
acquired by the United States in the
Louisiana Purchase.
The two explorers were close per
sonal friends and their exploits to
gether have made them the Damon
and Pythias of American history.
Lewis was originally commissioned by
congress to lead the expeditionary
party alone, but with President Jef
ferson’s consent, he chose his army
“buddy”, Clark, as joint leader.
They were accompanied along var
ious stages of the journey by various
numbers of men, never, however, ex
ceeding 50. Of those who accompan
ied Lewis and Clark on the entire ex
pedition, only one died and one de
serted.
The expedition was the first in his
tory to cross the American continent
north of Mexico. Many Tnfl%n
tribes were encountered, which up to
that time were unknown to whites.
More than 7,000 miles—to the Pacific
and back again—were explored thor
oughly before the party returned to
St. Louis in September, 1806.
