Why Gov. Small Was Indicted
Gov. Small of Illinois was indicted on a
charge of illegally converting to his own use in
terest earned on state money while he was treas
urer of the state. Or in other words, he made
money for himself with funds whose earning
power belonged to Illinois.
Many persons have had the idea that ths
charges against him, and his opposition to arrest
on the theory that "the king can do no wrong,
vere features of a political brawl between his
friends and opponents.
Under our form of government Gov. Small is
innocent until proved guilty, but Illinois rightly
feels humiliated over his claim of immunity to
arrest because he is the chief executive of th
Circuit .Tudge Smith paid little attention to
Gov. Small's argument and ruled that he is sub
ject to arrest, just as is any other violator of the
law. In his opinion, the judge ruled that .there
is no such thing as the "divine right" of kings
and that the king has no counterpart in Illinois
:He also held that it is beyond the scope of the
governor's power to call state troops to shield
him from arrest.
One is tempted to question the common sense
of a governor who advances the puerile argu
ments of Gov. Small to avoid arrest. The people
of Illinois have enough respect for their state,
we believe, to feel that the rights of Gov. Small
have nothing to fear from the judicial processes
of the commonwealth, and that if he is innocent,
a jury of his peers will vindicate his probity in
office. His course prior to the decision of Judge
"Smith was a foolish one for an innocent man to
The question of whether he embezzled public
money is a simple one for a jury to answer. The
accused will have the advantage of every rule
established for the protection of a defendant,
and if the charges are unfounded, it will not take
the jury long to find out.
church in a sermon before the New Jersey camp
meeting last Sunday.
When a bishop of the largest denomination in
the United States makes a sweeping statement
like this one, most of us sit up to take notice.
Bishop Berry is in a position to have first-hand
knowledge of the facts.
"What is wanted," he said, "is not more
churches. It is a mistake to think so, and a
greater mistake to say so in public The one
real need of the time is not a greater number of
churches, but more Christians and more Chris
tianity. Many churches would be improved if
their membership were reduced by 50 per cent.
That would eliminate the non-Christians and give
Christianity a better chance to serve. There are
plenty of churches sometimes I feel convinced
there may be too many. But there is a shortage
of Christians and a scarcity of genuine Christian
ity. Give us more Christians and we can get
along beautifully with the churches we have."
If Bishops Berry is right in his observation
that half of the members of the Christian
churches are only nominally disciples of Christ,
the truth will come as a shock to many who are
deploring the alleged paucity of churches and
their membership.
If drives to get new members have increased
the number of worshipers without making them
believers, Bishop Berry has brought a strong in
dictment against the church. The average man
would hesitate to make such a sweeping asser
tion. Bishop Berry has had opportunity to ob
serve and to study the make-up of congregations
all over the country, and perhaps he is right. His
judgment was declared openly. If he misstated
facts and drew wrong conclusions, better in
formed churchmen should take up the challenge.

Why a Boss?
Because efficient and satisfactory work
seems impossible without his presence. The per
centage of workers who need bosses is surpris
ingly large, say production managers. Millions
of dollars are spent for the supervision of negli
gent and careless workers. If they were 10,0 per
cent perfect, the boss would cease to exist.
"We all aspire to progress," says a writer in
Forbes Magazine, "or at least we ought to. Well,
we are little likely ever to reach the position of a
boss until we first cease to need a boss. If you
demonstrate to your " employer and keep on
demonstrating, if need be, for a very long time
that he doesn't have to employ anyone to keep
you up to the scratch, he is likely to conclude
some fine day that you don't need supervision
and are capable of supervising others."
When inefficiency was at its height in the
United States one large automobile concern had
to hire one boss to every three to five men.
Through the elimination of inefficient and lazy
workers, the same firm today has one boss to
every 20 men.

Two Minutes of Optimism
What is the relation between education and money making?
A rather impertinent question, some professors may think, and iust as
illogical; since education is not intended to be a tool or a means to make
Primarily, education widens a man's sympathies, broadens hi3 interests,
forever reveals life's new enjoyments and bestows the pleasures derived
from the many things of beauty and culture which to the untutored are a
closed book.
But authoritative facts and figures show that in addition education is
a dominating element of success.
If uneducated, the average man has only one chance out of 150,000 to '
make good. . !
With a common school education he has four chances.
With a high-school education he has thirty-four chances.
And with a college education, Thomas A. Edison's views to the con
trary notwithstanding, he has 800 chances.
Education, therefore, is not a luxury; it is In every sense of the word a
compelling necessity; it is an investment which pays dividends as long as
a man lives.
A century or even fifty years ago the three R's sufficed.
To be successful, men did not need more because competitors did not
know more.
But Just as success has been graduated from the general store In a one
horse town to International organizations and chain establishments with
links in every city of our land, as railroads and automobiles have supplanted
the stage coach and the horse car, as efficiency has done away with slip
shod, slovenly management and science has ousted superstition, so educa
tion has displaced ignorance.
This does not mean that a college degree or any degree of learning guar
antees a meal ticket there are many A. B.'s and M. A's with ASS written
all over them.
But as a general rule, the chap who has gone to the trouble and expense
of acquiring an education has the enthusiasm and the energy to work, and
because of his training and kiowledge he will work better and more pro
ductively than he otherwise would or could.

"Without the rich heart," says Emerson, "wealth is an ugiy
In what other way would anyone want to be rich, anyway? And
yet, sad as it seems, this sort of wealth goes a-begging every day.
There are not many men, of great money wealth, in whose pres
ence I am any too happy. There seems too much an atmosphere of
apology there, of uncomfortableness. But in the presence of a per
son whose total and greatest wealth lies in richness of heart, you feel
melted Into all that he is. You want to be near him and quite near
at that.

You can make your presence a real benediction in this world.
You can make people glad that you are alive. All you have to do
is to plant the garden of your soul with the right seeds.
I have a friend in whose presence I always delight. He rarely
has a nickel to his name. He isn't any too particular about his man
ner of dress. But he has a mind that climbs! And so I like to be
with him. His presence is always welcomed. Sometimes he comes
into my office when I am exceedingly busy. But I just stop everything
and tell him to take a chair and make himself at home and then I go
right on about my work happier that he came.
