WHAT'S THE USE of being mayor if you can't keep your friends on
the police force, anyhow?
A CERTAIN DEPARTMENT STORE is advertising “government jams.”
Seems to us we have had too many government jams already.
WONDER If Ed. Shubert can't get a job in the garage that was sen
ator Harding’s campaign headquarters in the last primary.
STRANGE isn’t it, that Senator Eisner should resent kindness of
Gov. Goodrich in having the legislators’ bills all ready for them to pass?
ORGANIZED LABOR appears to be chary of owned coal mine
for fear convicts will operate it- Labor tolerated convict labor on the
Goodrich mine in Pike county long enough to learn what it means.
yT GOES without saying that the bill to abolish the public sen ice . om
mission was not on the governor's program. If it became effective how
would the Washington Light, Hdat and Power Company ever become profit
able to Goodrfch and other stockholders?
Remember the Legion
Whatever differences of opinion there may be as to the advisability
of passing the bill for a soldiers’ memorial which was prepared in advance
of this legislative session, there certainly can be no question of the pro
priety of the state of Indiana doing all within its power to retain the na
tional headquarters of the American legion.
The headquarters were obtained for this state on the representation
to the veterans of the world’s war that Indiana was in hearty accord
with their purposes and their organization.
Indiana should not, now, forget the obligation to the legion that was
entered into without a doubt of general favorable sentiment.
There is g- mnd for honest difference as to the advisability of accept
ing the memorial plans as proposed in the bill now before the legislature.
There is no justification for allowing this difference to keep Indiana
from showing its appreciation of the fountain head of the great work
being done by the American legion.
Time Will Tell
How time does shift the regard with xrtiich we view the Goodrich
tax law!
Earlv last spring, before the May installment of taxes fell due Ed.
Wasmuth’s state committee hired Carl Mote to write a pamphlet which it
caused to be printed in large quantities and circulated as an official pub
lication vouched for by the committee.
In this pamphlet Carl referred to the Goodrich tax law as “the great
est achievement of the republican party In Indiana since the Civil war"
and declared that the law was “the best law possible under our con
Now comes the Muncie Press, whose adherence to the state commmit
tee’s viewpoint can not be questioned, and in an editorial discussion of this
same tax law says:
“One of tie most serious aspects of the situation is the effect the loss
of all this great amount In taxes —a sum that will amount to at least three
quarters of a million dollars—will have upon the schools. At the very best
the money raised for the continuance of the public school system next year
scarcely is adequate and if much of this be cut off it will mean the aban
donment of many schools in Indiana, and a reduction In the efficiency of
many others.’*
Reformation Begins at Home
Whatever hope or fear may have existed in the mind of the
partisan for a division of either of the great political parties this year has
been eliminated by the successful conclusion of the two national conven
There will be no third party worthy of the name In this campaign.
This is due probably to the fact that there Is no individual
possessed of sufficient personality to lead a third party who has not al
ready aligned himself with one or the other of the two old parties for
the campaign. Johnson might have been this personality, or Bryan might
have proved a successful standard bearer. It is sufficient say t.iat
neither has so elected.
Therefore, there remains to the national electorate, as usual, merely
the choice between the republican and the democratic fold. Neither is more
consistent than the other. *
In neither convention were results obtained that are reassuring to
those voters who hoped for consistency In the appeal to the electorate.
Mr. Harding has been asked to define his stand on the question of
prohibition and Mr. Cox will be expected to do the same. The country
will attach more weight to the personal expressions of these two candi
dates than to the party written platforms on which both will pretend to
stand in the acceptance of their nominations.
Thus will the platforms of both political parties be relegated to the
oblivion in which the politicians have believed for many years that all plat
forms belong.
Dr. Burris Jenkins, Kansas editor, declares that progresslvism can
expect nothing from either party as a result of this campaign.
He is probably correct
There is nothing on the horizon to indicate reformation, either repub
lican or democratic, and reformation is never produced without a cloud of
popular menace within the vision of political leaders.
All of which bears home to the voter a feeling of hopelessness in re
gard to national progress for the next four years.
Progressive reformation has Its inception In the local community. It
begins at home. No movement of nation-wide possibility ever won na
tion-wide attention until It had first overcome the opposition in the smaller
divisions of this country.
We believe no one will contradict the assertion that there Is much to
be desired in the government and politics of this great country. Few will
deny that these desires must first be expressed and accomplished in the
several units that go to make up the country’s national political body.
And this line of logic brings us to the consideration of our problems
in the body politic of Indiana and Marion county.
The citizen who would have more satisfactory national politics must
demonstrate his desires by creating more satisfactory local and state
Passing over the condition of Indiana state politics with all its unde
sirability and even corruption, one finds a sufficient task Inviting the best
reform effort in the political affairs of Marion county.
Certainly no county in Indiana and undoubtably few counties In the
United States are more in need of a political housecleaning than the coun
ty of Marion.
During the last three years and a half the taxpayers of Marlon county
have seen their money squandered scandalously If not corruptly.
They have seen their primaries corrupted, their political choices nullF
fled by crooks and near-crooks clothed in the protection of those who were
sworn to uphold the law of the state and have forgotten the oath In their
They have seen the machinery erected to guard the honest citizen
against the depredations of the dishonest converted to the personal use
and advantage of a select few who have profited either in dollars or politi
cal power at the expense of the honest citizen whose right and fallacy it
was to look to them for protection.
They have seen a prosecutor wax fat and sleek off the fees mulcted
from law violators who were covertly invited to continue their law viola
tions and fee paying while the county treasurer paid to a special prosecutor
more of the taxpayers’ money to make possible th© representation of the
state of Indiana in the criminal court
Reformation begins at home.
When those of us who are not fully satisfied with the national politics
of this country, have demonstrated sufficient ability to wipe off the leeches
who feed upon our body politic in onr own home county it will he time
enough to talk of national reform.
Again, reformation begins at home—or neverl

Q. What proportion of the poultry

clusively to that purpose? E. T.
A. Less than 10 per cent of the poul

The Right Thing

You may have read the other day of
a clergyman who sent a bride home

women of his parish that ho would have
them refused admittance to church if
they came clad in the extreme of fash
Whether the styles of dress that these
priests referred to actually were Immod
est doubtless depends on the point of view.
But that they were inappropriate to
church is unquestionable.
To be dressed always in good taste
does not necessalrly mean that you must
never indulge in the more extreme forms
of the fashion, but that you should wear

itles perfectly customary for women
young and old to wear low neck and
short sleeves at evening entertainments.
In fact in this country young unmarried
girls habitually wear lower evening
gowns than their mothers —though
among well-bred French women unmar

Now since this is customary it Is

The same thing holds true in regard
to bathing costumes. Had wotjjen worn
the sort of bathing suits that they do
now ten or twenty years ago, they
would have been hooted off the beaches.
But times have changed and our bath
ing costumes have changed most em
It does not mean that we have grown
more lax. Doubtless the tightly laced, ex
aggerated figure of two decades ago
would give more, offense to the modern
taste than the rather abbreviated bath

accustomed to.—Copyright, 1920.

You remember in the last story I
promised to tell you what Old Mother
Hubbard's dog said to Puss Junior. Well,
the first thing he did was to Invite Puss
to take a look at the old lady's cub
"Perhaps you can find something to
eat there,” he said. And the old dog
laughed' and wagged Ills tail, and then
he covered up the bone which he had
placed in a hole in the ground and told
Pqss to follow him, and by and by they
came to Old Mother Hubbard's cottage.
And after they had gone In they looked
around, but the old lady was nowhere
to be seen; but in a few minutes they
heard her coming up the garden walk.
''l'm going to make believe I'm starved,
said the naughty old dog, and he rolled
over on the floor and lay very still.
“Oh, dear; oh, dear,” cried Old Mother
“Here I've gone to the baker to get
him some bread.
And when I get back my poor dog Is

this time she hadn't seen Puss, for her
eyes were full of tears and she kept wip

after that she went out again and closed
the door.
“How can you be so deceitful?” asked
“I never thought she'd suppose I'd die
as easily as all that,” said the old dog,
and he looked ashamed of himself, and
I think he should have, for It wasn’t very
nice to fool an old lady, for It wasn’t her
fault that her cupboard was bare, for she
was dreadfully poor, you know.
By and by she returned, and when she
saw her sitting up aud laughing with
Puss Junior, she said:
“Here I've gone out to buy him a coffin.
