After the dirigible Graf Zeppelin landed at Cuers,
France, when engine trouble Interrupted Its proposed
Voyage across the Atlantic, one who cared to observe
things European could notice a strange phenomenon.
The French and the Germans were actually saying
hice things about one another—for the first time in
nobody knows how long!
Huge crowds of French men and women visited the
hangar where the big airship was stored. French soldiers
and mechanics worked beside the German crew getting
the ship into shape. In Parisian newspapers there were
words of praise for the aerial visitors; and in Berlin the
newspapers expressed appreciation of the reception
France had given Dr. Eckener and his men.
All in all, it was an unusual affair. It won't last, of
course. In a week or so the old suspicion and hostility
will be uppermost again. But for a few days there was
an era of good feeling; and, to an irritable and over
weary world, even a few days of it are something.
It goes to prove—as if any proof were needed—that we
are. after all, ruled by our emotions.
Just as Lindbergh’s dramatic flight suddenly ended the
discord between France and the United States, and re
stored the old harmony of 1917, so the Graf Zeppelin’s
landing et Cuers wiped out, for the moment, memories
of war's wrongs and old-time hatreds and enabled two
nations to meet amicably on a common ground.
The worst of it is, however, that it works the other
bray, too.
Just as some sudden spectacular event can override old
enmities and bring harmony overnight, so a less for
tunate accident can create, equally swiftly, a wave of
hatred and indignation.
Let your memory go back 31 years if you don’t be
lieve it.
If the battleship Maine had not blown up and sunk in
Havana harbor in the early winter of 1898, It is quite
possible that the American people would never have con
sented to the war with Spain. That one event set the
nation on fire. It roused emotions that carried all
before them.
A child is always ruled by his emotions. A grown man
is at least supposed to be ruled by his Intellect. In the
mass, however, it appears that most of us are still
Today, for no reason except that a German airship
landed in France, the French and Germans are shower
ing compliments on one another.
Tomorrow, for some equally insufficient reason, they
will probably be talking about war.
This rule of the emotions is dangerous. It has good
results, sometimes; but it is too uncertain. You can’t
ever tell what it Is going to do to you.
Newspaper publishers and editors have been notified
that the daily press should give less prominence to de
tails of crime and divorce. There are those who go so
far in their criticism of journalistic practices and ethics
as to put most of the blame upon the press for the
So-called crime and divorce waves.
That newspapers ought to stop reporting crimes, since
Criminals are not stopped from committing them, is an
old idea, to be sure. But the coupling of crime and
divorce as twin evils, alike in being too terrible to
'mention, strikes one as possessing something of novelty.
' What could be more completely and essentially unlike

crime exists so copiously in spite of the law, divorce

Suggesting the same treatment for both—namely, a
pretense that they are of no consequence or do not
exist—seems rather like proposing that we shut our
eyes to everything except the pure, the good and the

It is very hard to sympathise with those senators who
are indignant because the vote on confirmation of Irvine
Lenroot as Judge of the appellate court, taken in secret

there is absolutely no excuse for the senate taking a
secret vote on anything. Every citizen has a right to

comes before them.
Nothing but cowardice or petty politics would make a
senator want to shroud his vote in secrecy; and the

Editorial Comment
(Dickinson Press)
Statistics show that the wheat acreage on North Da
kota farms will be materially reduced this year.
This is common sense from two different angles.
First, it shows an inclination on the part of farmers
to diversify and plant more land to feed and forage
crops. It also shows that the average farmer is watch
ing the market and no longer secs hope of financial
salvation or independence in wheat arising.
The unfavorable condition of the wheat market at
the present time is anything but encouraging. While
congress battles over farm relief, the price sinks. So
there seems little hope for the wheat farmer.
The farmer who turns his attention toward diversifica
tion, however, faces a brighter outlook. Livestock prices
still remain strong and there is no indication of an im
mediate decline. During the past year many Slope farm
ers have netted big returns from the sale of dairy
products, cattle, sheep and wool. They have found that
livestock instead of wheat furnishes the wherewithal to
lift mortgages and they are taking advantage of this in
a greater degree each year.
Moreover, diversification builds land instead of wast
ing its substance. Single crops are all right while the
soil is still new and vigorous but when its fertility is
sapped, farm profits diminish or disappear entirely.
It is to be hoped that out of congress at some date
in the not too distant future will come a relief measure
that will mean more than temporary relief to the agri
culturists. For if there is any class that deserves fi
nancial independence it is the farmers.

For a year Rt least, it appears that A 1 Capone, gangster
Regent is safe from "the spot." He turned over loaded
blue-barrel automatic the other day to detectives stand
ing in front of a Philadelphia motion picture theater
with a smile. He went into court and pleaded guilty
to a charge of carrying concealed weapons. A voluble
judge with an eye for publicity delivered himself of a
few sage remarks. It was quite a show from the
philosophical attitude of Capone to the lack of judicial
dignity of the presiding judge.
Then Capone talked. He wants nothing but to be let
alone. He loves his wife and his little boy and their
palatial home down at Miami. Florida. He is tired of
wearing a bullet-proof vest, riding in an automobile
equipped with bullet-proof glass and constantly being
advised that he will be put on “the spot" at the very first
opportunity. Jail to him will be heaven. Chicago is hell
and five years of racketeering have clearly shown him
the handwriting on the wail.
Society and the world little understands such men, al
though they are responsible for them. Capone has capi
talized and enlarged upon a popular disrespect, for law.
but he is afraid of "the rats of the game." There are
rats in every game in this thing called life, of course.
Mr. Capone is one of those who have cashed in the
subsidence of the national foundations. He lives and
works and profits by the oldest of all laws, that of the
tooth and claw as it is applied to human affairs. He is
a ruthless killer, yet he fears death from "the rats of
the game." t
What a wonderful thing is civilization!' How barbarous
some of its refinements! The Indian had a better and
fairer philosophy.

A day’s consideration of the supreme court's ruling in
the railway valuation case has served to show that'
hastily predicted and sensational results of it will hardly
follow. The only basis for the inference of a “twenty
billion-dollar railway victory” was assumption that the
entire valuation process must now be based on present
cost of reproduction. But the transportation act itself
directs, that property account shall receive “only that
consideration which under the law it is entitled to.”
In Monday’s decision the court declares that existing
property values are to be included only “along with all
other pertinent facts,” and expressly refuses to pass upon
“the weight to be accorded thereto.”
The leading precedent cited by the court recognizes
that “there are other matters to be regarded in estimat
ing the value of the property,” and that the final rate
adjustment should be based on the principle that “no
more be exacted” from the public “for the use of a
public highway than the services rendered are worth.”
The opinion of the scope of the decision, stated by in
dependent experts, is still more positive. One of them
points out that the idea of a sudden and sweeping
advance of rates in case of a higher valuation
overlooks the statutory requirement that the rates must
be “just and reasonable” to the public; equally evident
is the fact that competition between the railways must
i of itself favor rates that will move traffic in the largest
volume possible. This does not mean that the supreme
court’s ruling will not result In valuations higher than
might otherwise have been made, or that its effect on
“recapture” of surplus earnings may not be consider
able. Higher appraisals would increase the amount,
limited by law to 6 per cent of property valuation, which
a prosperous railway is allowed to dispose of for itself.
But even that increase would depend on the extent to
which recognition of reconstruction costs would still be
offset by the “other pertinent facts.”
The supreme court’s decision is not based on judg
ment that rates are too low or the “recapture limit”
unfair; it expresses no opinion on either question. The
court merely rules that, in rejecting present property
values as one factor in the calculation, the interstate
commission departed both from the railway law and from
judicial precedent. This conclusion is emphasized with
severity. "Many objections” were urged by the commis
sion “to the doctrine approved by us, and the superiority
of another view is stoutly asserted.”
But the commission’s duty was to execute the law as
interpreted by the court; not “to act as an arbiter in
economics.” In other words, the determination of rail
way valuer for general purposes of rate-making was a
function quite distinct from that of granting or refusing
altered rates requested on certain commodities or on
specified classes of traffic. The real significance of the
court’s decision lies in its reassertion of a precedent of
the utmost importance to all industries under public
It will be perceived that even the dissenting opinions
do not dispute the general principle thus asserted.
Judge Brandeis holds that higher reproduction cost
“does.not necessarily tend to prove a present higher
value.” Justice Stone does not find it proved that the
commission actually failed “to give appropriate weight
to evidence of present reproduction cost.” But the first
of these contentions does not traverse any essential part
of the majority decision, and the second is a matter of
opinion. The court has not required higher valuations,
but merely observance of the lawful method of ascer
taining them; its judgment that the commission had
not adequately observed the law in that regard is based
os formal by the —ff* I*** 1 *** themeClves.

That clothes—many or little—have
little relation to morals unless the
fewer clothes the better the morals,
is no new idea. But Dr. William
Montgomery McGovern of Northwest
ern University, recently returned from
a fourteen months’ exploration of the
Amazon River Basin, insists that the
utterly asked native women of that
region had morals “far stricter than
those of bebustled, long-skirted la
dies of the Victorian red plush era.”

that the smokers are perhaps more
intolerant than the non-smokers;
after all. smoke is as offensive to
some people as skunk cabbages, and
it’s a fine question to ask whether the
intolerance of those who insist upon

In curing constipation, one of the
most important points to remember
is that the patient should cultivate
the habit of going to the stool at
regular intervals each day whether
the desire to evacuate is present or
not. The best time for this is shortly
after each meal, because a kind of
peristaltic wave passes through the
entire Intestines soon after food be
gins to enter the stomach.
Many of the simpler cases of con
stipation can be entirely cured by
cultivating this habit of regulartiy
and by using larger quantities of
bulky foods. All of the non-starchy
vegetables are especially valuable.
Sometimes it is advisable to use them
in large quantities even as often as
three times a day. It is also helpful
to develop the strength of the abdo
men and back muscles.
Where one has been eating a fair
amount of bulky vegetables, the con
stipation may be produced by the
passages being too dry because the
fluids have become extracted and di
rected towards the kidneys. This
habit of the kidneys eliminating too
large a quantity of fluid may become
so firmly fixed that much time is re
quired to complete a cure. In many
people, the water used for drinking
is entirely absorbed before it reaches
the intestines and is therefore not of
much value in moistening and lubri
This is especially true of water used
immediately before, during and after
eating a meal. When, however, the
stomach and intestines are practi
cally empty of food, as occurs during
the later part of the night and early
morning, it is possible for a large
quantity of water swallowed at those
times to reach the colon before being
absorbed and this is a valuable
remedy in many cases of abnormal
Where the intestinal muscles are
weakened or where there is a prolap
sus or a kink as the cause of consti
pation. the cure is not so simple and
treatments by a doctor who under
stands manipulation and uses the
sinusoidal electrical current are usu
ally necessary. Deep massage is of
special value in loosening adhesions
and lifting prolapsed areas of the
colon, or straightening kinks. The
internal muscles may then be exer
cised by electrical sinusoidal treat
ments, a machine which contracts or
relaxes the muscles as the current is
alternately turned on and off.
Chronic cases should also begin
with a diet of several days of acid
fruit fasting and the use of enemas
which, while they do not provide a
real cure, are valuable in lessening
the inflammation and Increasing the
flow of lubricating secretions.
After your fruit fast, begin your

On May 29,1890, the judiciary com
mittee of the House of Representa
tives reported in favor of amending
the Constitution to permit woman’s
suffrage. It was one of the first
shows of interest the federal govern
ment made in the suffrage move
ment. Nothing came directly of the
report, but it moved several states
to individual action and was a mile
stone in the “Votes for Women”
At the time no state and only one
territory, Wyoming, extended full
suffrage to women. Wyoming’s law
went into effect in 1869.
The suffrage cause began in an
organized way in 1848 with a conven
tion at Seneca Falls, N. Y. It lost
momentum, however, during the tur
bulent days of the Civil War.
The constitutional amendment
which went into effect in 1920, is one
of the shortest in the document. It
says, simply:
1. The right of citizens of the
United* States to vote shall not be
denied or abridged by the United
States or by any state on account of
2. Congress shall have power, by
appropriate legislation, to enforce the
provisions of this article.

Cracking Joints
Question: M. N. P. asks: “What
causes a cracking of the joints, in
cluding the jaw bones when eating.
I might mention that I am also
troubled with ringing ears.”
Answer: A cracking of the joints
is usually caused by loose ligaments
or a lack of synovial fluid around the
joints. Sometimes, what appears to
be cracking of the jaw can be caused
by the clogging of the eustachian
tube leading to the mouth and ears,
which is stretched when the jaw is
moved and produces a cracking. The
presence of the ear noises would also
tend to indicate that this condition
might be the cause.
