Logan Payne & Cos. Advertising Offices Sew York, Boston. Payne, Burns & Smith. Inc. —“THIS IS THE YEAR”— WHY IS a cabal'lf not to control? SERGT. RUSSELL reported 200 arrests by his morals squad, but he did not say a word about that fight in a blind tiger. BUT, MR. HOWLAND, didn’t Jim Goodrich solemnly promise that when elected governor he would “take the school system out of politics? SENATOR FALL is against a humanitarian mandate for Armenia, but enthusiastic over a commercial mandate for Mexico. Consistency is not a virtue of the republican party. .And Why Not, Please? t The so-called “senatorial cabal” is in control at the Chicago gathering of the republican party and as it manipulates the preliminaries of the convention there emanates from those who are not pleased a wail of dis content. i But why shouldn’t the “senatorial cabal” control the republican con vention? Doesn’t the "senatorial cabal” control the republican party? Isn’t the “senatorial cabal” the republican party? For the last year the only part of the republican party that has been in the public eye has been the republican senate. For the months pre viously to its election the whole country was called upon to support the republican senatorial ticket for the purpose of “saving” the country. The republican party waß represented before the public by its candi dates for the senate. The republican party won the election by representing to the public that its “aristocracy of intellect” was seeking senatorial seats. Since that time the senate has shaped the policies of the party in the nation. . It opposed the league of nations and declared that in so opposing the covenant it represented the people of the United States. It passed the “peace resolution” and in so doing declared that it acted for and on behalf of the people of America. It convened with a “mandate from the people,” in the language of our own Mr. Hays. Mandates are not cast aside over night. The “senatorial cabal” appears to be taking itself and its mandate seriously. < Why, then, complain, if these chosen representatives of the republican party insist on controlling the convention of the party they represent? Isn t the leadership concerning which w e have heard so much praise recently, satisfactory to the republican party? i The Advertisers ’ Convention Indianapolis will continue to reap a benefit from the convention of the Associated Advertising Clubs of the World long after the program is over and the members have returned to their respective homes. Advertising in itself continues to exert its influence long after it fades from a visible sphere into a subconsciously recognized influence. So it will be with the advertisers’ convention. The gathering will bring to Indianapolis men of broad vision and in tense activity whose words and influence will be possible of establish ment long after they have impressed themselves on their hearers- Seldom have so many vigorous efforts been made by this community to impress itself on the minds of its visitors. As is natural among men who make a profession of advertising there has been a keen, friendly rivalry in the creation of impressions. As hosts to the advertising clubs, the local members of the association have arranged to “sell Indianapolis” to their Visitors. They are engaged in an advertising campaign having for its purpose the creation of an im pression. The visitors to Indlhnapolis will respond in a similar manner. They will “sell Indianapolis 4 ’ on the benefits of good advertising, properly done. This latter impression will live long, and it is to be hoped that Its counterpart in longevity will be a favorable impression on the visitors re garding Indianapolis. Failure of Wood Money In an editorial under the caption, “Check Book Candidates,” the New York World says: “If there is any sense of political morality left in the American people, the revelations of financial outlay to influence primary election of repub lican delegates in favor of various candidates ought to defeat that party in advance.’’ The World is right, and in this sentence has ably answered the spec ious plea that the “costly publicity campaign” on the part of Gen. Wood was necessary to "acquaint the voters with his qualifications. The real purpose of the expenditure of hundreds of thousands of dol lars in behalf of Wood was not to acquaint voters with his qualifications, but to get the delegates. ' Here in Indiana Gen. Woods had the support of the larger republican papers and the great bulk of republican papers. Assuming, for the good of the newspaper profession, that none of the Wood expenditures was made to influence these papers, It can not be denied that the general had tbe avenue through which to acquaint the voters with his qualifications, and no expenditures in Indiana were necessary for that purpose. But there were expenditures in Indiana. Dozens of headquarters were maintain and. Dozens of paid agents were employed. „ Money was spent in every conceivable way, not to acquaint the voters with Wood s qualifications, but to get delegations pledged to Wood. It Is exceedingly difficult to understand just what voters the Wood managers wished to impress with Wood’s qualifications when they offered $2.50 apiece for “testimonials” for Wood. It is difficult to see just what qualifications were sought to be im pressed on the voters when the Marion county delegation in the state convention pledged its support to certain candidates for state offices in order to obtain votes for its resolution pledging the delegates at large to Wood. Common sense tells us that the real movement in Indiana was to get she delegates and personal knowledge tells practically every resident of Indianapolis that thousands of dollars were spent in a manner that con vinced every voter of only one qualification—the ability of Wood to get money for his campaign. The World says the revelations ought to defeat the republican party in advance. They have already defeated Wood. In spite of the expenditure of hundreds of thousands of dollars in fhii state Wood got only a third of the delegates and of that third there are probably not more than four who will continue to support Wood, after the fiiet ballot at the convention. Why This Activity? The failure of the prosecutor’s office to obtain a conviction in the case of the Riverside concession owners who were conducting the old-time games of chance should by no means be interpreted as indicating difficulty in stopping such operations." The case was lost in police court through inefficient prosecution and proceedings in police court are by no means the only methods open to stop this form of petty gambling, if the authorities are really anxious to stop it The concessions at Riverside park are under thorough control. Leases may be cancelled at will and the operators of obnoxious games may be driven out whenever it is deemed advisable. Whether Riverside park is made more or less attractive by reason of ability to win kewpie dolls in games of chance ntight be a question of some debate. The police appear to have decided, for some unaccountable reason fol lowing years of trial of the kmes of chance, that they were not desirable. The authorities will novr continue their efforts to stop them or admit that-something other than aversion to them caused the first police effort KHBHg WRHR 'years. \ ♦ * . *- *■ The Right Thing at the Right Time By MARY MARSHALL 8. DUFFER. Your Hostess Sometime* the last person a- young woman thinks of when she Is visiting a girl friend of hers is her hostess, who is of course not the, girl friend, hut the Kiri’s 1 mother or whoever occupies the position of mistress of the house. Tt may be an older sister, an aunt or grandmother—but in any event the visitor should bear in mind constantly that It Is this one and not the girl friend to whom she stands in the rela lion of guest and host. No matter how careless you are about consulting your mother in your Own house you should remember that gooo breeding demands that when you are visiting you should always let the host ess know where you are going when you leave the house. I>o not ask any oDe to visit you at an other house unless you ask your host ess whether it is agreeable to her. When a visitor calls to see you whether a man or woman—always a<k your hostess whether she will meet him. tV'hen you are visiting it is extremely rude to make engagements for parties to which your hostess Is not Invited. It may happen that you will meet an old friend who will ask you to lunch ton or tea alone. Usually it is discourteous to adeept Mich an Invitation, but when you are juite sure that you could not offend your hostess By accepting you may ac cept such Invitations, but always you should consult her before accepting. When you have returned home after a visit remember that It Is to your hostess to whom you should write to acknowledge the courtesy extended t< you. No matter whether you have visited as the friend of n daughter of the family *t is the mother to whom you owe the little note of courtesy. LAST NIGHT’S DREAMS —And What They Mean— DID YOU DREAM OF TORCHES? To see In a dream many lighted torches is accounted by the mystics to be an omen of dazzling success. To dream of holding a lighted torch Is said to be a most formidable omen for young people of either sex, as it in dicates that their love affairs will turn out according to their desires. For a young man a Uieatn of bolding a lighted torch is a prophecy of victory over ene mies and of success in life. Also it signifies that bo will hold the esteem of his friends and acquaintances nnd that rich and Influential persons will act to ward him in a benevolent manner. To dream of seeing lighted torches In the hands of others is an omen that you will discover and thwart some evil design* against you, and that those w!n> try to worS you evil will lie punished In spite of their attempts to avoid the Just consequences of their acts by de ceit and'prevarication. It la not. however, considered a for tunate omen to see an extinguished torch held by others, ns that means thlit you will have to lo>k o\tt sharply to avoid iho pitfalls your enemies wotfld dig for yon. Neither Is '.t considered a favorable omen If you should dream that you your self hold In your hand an extinguished torch. With these exceptions all dreams of torches and good droams ara much to be desired. The more lighted torches you see in your dream tha greater will b your luck. Dreams of torches apply especially to young people.-Copyright, 1920. - WAR NERVES NEWEST “JAG." LONDON, June s.—Tha newest ''jag” is war nerves. And It Isn't punishable.
