Separate Them
(From Courier-Journal)
The Senate Committee on Agriculture yesterday reported
unanimously resolution for submitting Constitutional amend
ment for the abolition of the Klectoral College and the election
of President and Vice President by direct popular vote. The
amendment would aliio make the term of President begin on
the third Monday in January instead of the 4th of March, and
would fix the beginning of the first regular session of Congress
on the first Monday in January instead of thirteen months after
its election, an at present.
The criticism against this resolution is that it should be two
resolutions instead of one. It would provide for two very dif
ferent reforms. Changing the beginning of the terms of the
President and of Congress and changing the method of electing
the President are proposals that should not be complicated with
each other. Each should stand on its own legs, neither leaning
on the other.
If they be separated, as they should be, it is unlikely that
there will be much objection to an amendment changing the
dates for the beginning of Presidential and Congressional terms.
This change is generally favored and would have been made Ionic
ago if the necessary action had been token to effect it. There
ia no probability that a resolution fur the amendment would
meet any serious obstruction in gctt'ng thru Congress or that
the amendment would not be readily ratified by the States.
By all means let the advocates of the change see to it that
the separation of the two proposals be made.
The Associated Press pronounces this favorable report by the
Senate Committee the first legislative victory of the new Pro
gressive bloc in Congress. The Associated Press ia not often so
wide of the mark. Thj proponed reform is not a party or bloc
measure. It is advocated by the new Progressive bloc, as it is
advocated by nearly everybody else, in or out of blocs. The
unanimity of the Senate Agricultural Committee in reporting the
resolution favorably was a reflection of non-partisan, bi-partisan
and all psrti. an M-ntimcnt. That committee, composed of Repub
licans and Democrat, is not a bloc committee, tho some of its
members do approve some of the objects of the "Progressive bloc,"
The fact that this Sioc may take the lead in pushing the res
olution thru CongTess should not weaken it among other blocs or
among non-bloc Democrats and KcpuMicar.s, any more than the
fuct that other blocs, or Democrats or Republicans, might take
the lead should weaken it with the Progressive bloc. The strength
of the movement is in the practically universal recognition of its
merits, which is another forcible reason why it should stand on
its merits, uncomplicated with any other movement.
There's a happy place I love so well
Far down under sunny southern skies,
And my heart leaps out to that little dell
As my hope goes out to paradise.
There's never a day but I long to go
To that little home that I used to know
Where the old corn mill turns out its grist,
And the night birds fly thru tho river mist,
And mossy bunks are forever kissed
Uy the waves of the Congaree.
The cotton field stretch far away
Where the black folka live in happy throng,
And the mocking bird sings all the day
And the wood thrush chants his evening song.
Each day there is a day of joy
That thrills the heart of a barefoot boy,
Where the old corn mill turns out its grist.
And the night birds fly thru the river mist.
And mossy banks are forever kissed
By the waves of the Congaree.
There's an old churchyard by the greenwood side
And stone that stands as sentinel
By a simple grave that's deep and wide
Where the forms of two fair spirits dwell.
And a pair of eyes and a baby's face
Cast a spell o'er that sacred place
Where the old corn mill turns out its grist,
And the night birds fly thru the river mist,
And mossy banks are forever kissed
By the waves of the Congaree.
0 take me back to the old home land
And let me drink at the spring again,
And build a wall on the sparkling sand
That's washed so clean by the summer rain.
1 love to dream of the days I knew
When I played so free by the waters blue
Where the old corn mill turns out its grist,
And the night birds fiy thru the river mist,
And mossy bunks are forever kissed
By the waes of the Congaree.

The following letter from the pos
tal authorities in reference to the
change of mail schedule was received
by Postmaster L. C. Adams for tho
information of the public:
My dear sir:
I am in receipt of a numerously-
signed petition addressed to Pst
Office Department D. C, under date
of November 2d, 1922, bearing your
Indorsement, In which request Is
made for tna restoration of mail
service in train 33.
Under the new time card train 33
departs from Cincinnati 7:00 at. m.,
while train 35 leaves this point at
8:3.r a. m. With the earlier depart
ure of train 33 that train would fail
to receive seven of the most impor
tant connections at Cincinnati, rend
ering service therein of less value
than in train 35. It was deemed ad
visable, therefore, to transfer the
mail service from train 33 to train
35 In oder to obtain the maximum
results from a service standpoint
The only mails that train 33 would
accumulating in the Cincinnati post-
office from 8:00 p. m. to 7:00 a. m.
The important mall trains arriving at
Cincinnati in the morning and carry
ing mania originating at points in the
North and East would not connect
train 33 and would necessarily be de
layed one business day.
I believe that you can realize the
importance of having mail service in
train 35 rather than in train 33 and
will explain the situation to patrons
of your office.
Should the L. & N. R. R. Co.
change the leaving time of train 33
so as to permit all connections be
received from morning trains center
ing received from morning trains
centering tthis point, consideration
will be given to transferring the mail
service to train 33.

A rich, rare treat awaits Berea
next Monday night at 7:30 in the
College Chapel, when Edwin M. Whit
ney will appear in the first lyceum
number for the season. Mr. Whitney
is probably in the forefront rank
among the great readers and dra
matic interpreters. Ifis genius con
sists in an unequalled ability to make
the great characters of literature live
before his audience to bring his
hearers into a personal acquaintance,
as it were, with the towering figures
of modern drama. Altogether, his
work is most wholesome and charm
ing. Ifis subject Monday night will be
"The Tailor Made Man," where hu
art finds adequate expression. It is
the story of the success of John Paul
Bart, the tailor's helper, a young
man who feels that in order to bet
ter himself in the way of mental
equipment he must take advantage
of every opportunity when it comes
as it does to every man. Bart
seizes his opportunities, and they are
many and varied, and of course wins
his great dream. Just how ca-not
be told here. Suffice to say, the play
is complete with delicious humor
which occasionally borders on hi
larity. The message Is powerfully
convincing, and of particular and
timely value to young people.
The admission is 15 cents to all
