Russia's New Ruler
Communism is dead in Russia and in its
place is found greed and avarice.
So writes a correspondent who has just re
turned to London after a study of conditions in
that country. The greed that holds the hearts
of the communist leaders is responsible for con
ditions much worse than those ever imposed by
a czar. They know, writes this investigator,
that communism is opposed by the majority of
the people, and in the last days of the soviet
regime the leaders are plundering the public
treasury and are holding power as a strongly
entrenched governing body.
' This is not a surprise to many, and may ex
plain many recent events in that land of starva
tion and deprivation. Back of the cruelty of
m.st tyrants of history has been the motive of
gaining wealth by stealing it from the people.
duplicating today what the robber barons and
tyrants did in the past centuries.
All the high officials of Russia, says the cor
respondent, are obtaining concessions to exploit
various enterprises. The head of one department
boasts of a valuable fishing concession. One de
partment holds exclusive sway over certain
products, which it buys at small cost, and retails
to other departments of the government and to
the people at a tremendous profit.
Wherever this correspondent went he found
high and low officials bent only on making
money at the expense of the people whose af
fairs they are mismanaging. All offices are part
of a highlyi developed bureaucracy, which is rob
bing right and left.
In the face of reports coming out of Russia,
our country is maintaining a correct diplomatic
attitude in refusing to recognize the soviet. The
state department has acted wisely in sticking
closely to its original principle of action regard
ing the recognition of Russia.
If the American government had taken the
slightest cognizance of the present government
of Russia it might have found itself in an em
barrassing position sooner 'or later. Our very
aloofness is the element of strength in reference
to any action that may be taken when that coun
try returns to a normal basis, while our open
handed willingness to save the starving people
of that country is the basis upon which we have
built a good will that will solidify any relation

One of the traits most common among successful men is that of
adjustability the knack of knowing Just how to fit In. If misfortune
comes along, the big man immediately fits in he bucks up and digs
in. If good fortune shows its smiling face and finally comes to stay
all right, he quickly shakes hands, and fits in.
Fit in right where you are.
Fit In now the best way you can.
And if you somehow can't fit in, the best possible move for you
is to get out get out quickly from where you are and find some place
where you can fit in.
A mi&fit man or woman is a tragedy. A good worker In a poor
place is exactly as bad as a poor worker in a good place. There is
only one right condition, and that is a good worker in a good place,
the right place, where he or she can fit
For you must fit in.
Many a one allows himself to think that he is a misfit when, in
reality, if he would but carefully think the whole thing out he would
come tQ realize his folly and change his thinking and become a real
fit, perhaps the very man for the Job.
If happenings appear to be against you, fit In somehow. If cir
cumstances crowd you, just insist upon fitting in anyway. If you are
thrown among those of a different race, or temperament, or ideals, or
customs, or whatnot, make this a rule fit in. For the time being, at
Suppose the weather does spoil your plans! Most plans can be
easier changed than you think. Just plan to fit in!

IN 1921 EQUAL TO
4 TRIPS TO MOON
By Associated Press)
CHICAGO, III.. June 17. The Pull
man car mileage in 1021 averaged four
and a half round trips daily to tie
moon, which is 238,840 miles from the
earth, according to a statistician of
the Pullman company. The mileags
averaged eight and a half trips to
the sun, which is 92,900,000 miles dist
ant, according to the statement.
The mileage reported for the year
was 709,527,465 miles, which was de-
clared equivalent to encircling the
earth at the equator eighty-eight times
each day, or once every sixteen min
utes and twenty-two seconds. Each
car was said to have averaged a year
ly run of 118.37G miles, or approxi
mately five trips around the globe.
"Pullman passengers," the company
reported, "rode 11.294,229,406 miles in
1921, or a car ride of 107 miles for
every man, woman and child in tb.e
United States. If a new-born babe
started this trip and traveled at the
rate of 30 miles an hour without
stopping he would be 42.997 years old
when the porter brushed him off.
"The average daily mileage waa
2,190,609 miles, or 91,275 miles an
hour and 1,520 miles per minute, i
"Pullman cars carried 31.204.992
passengers, an average of 85,500 a
day. It would take 106 hotels with
500 rooms each to furnish nightly the
