No better advice could be given to the
army of boys and girls who are now fin
ishing their school year than the short,
simple plea, "Stay in school." That
ought to be the motto of the entire school
population of the United States from the
kindergarten up to the senior year in
It is the way of material success. Sta
tistics show that the grammar school
graduate multiplies his chances by about
five if he goes on through the high school,
and that the high school graduate doubles
his chances if he goes on through the col
lege or technical school.
It is the way of spiritual success. Ed
ucation opens the mind to the acquisi
tion of Tiches that canngt be taken away.
It brings appreciation of the finest things
of life. Its discipline, if it is the right
kind of education, makes the mind a
keen-edged sword that can cut through
error and make its own way iu the realm
of- thought. It provides equipment for
making the best and most serviceable
Many young people, perhaps most,
leave school because that seems the eas
iest way. They find school work hard
or monotonous. Mental work IS hard.
It is harder than physical "work, to
the average person, though the hand
worker seldom recognizes that fact. Ask
any high school student .or college stu
dent who stands well in his studies. Ask
.any man who has forced his way to
scholastic or literary or scientific suc
cess. He knows the strain of the long
hours, day and night, year after year.
Hut he also knows that it pays, and that
when real values are considered, it is
the easiest way after all, because it
gives more for the effort than other work
Stay in school. Finish the grammar
school, at whatever cost. Go on to the
high school, however hard the effort, and
get the best it has to offer. Go to col-
lego if possible; and once in, finish the
course, however hard the studies and
however difficult the financial problem.
Work for education, with brain and
soul and hands. Get more of it than
your parents and grandparents had.
You will need it more than they did, for
the standard has risen, and there is go
ing to be keener competition than ever
Utah nas a new anti-tobacco law. The
results observed so far are surely not
what its author contemplated. It is a
punishable offense to give away cigar
ettes or to smoke tobacco in any form in
public places, yet there is said to be more
smoking than ever. -Says one observer,
"The first effect has been to incite open
violation by orderly citizens. People who
never smoked a cigarette In their lives
are now smoking them." And arrests
are not being made.
Such a situation is had for law and bad
for morals. Tobacco may be a filthy,
poisonous and generally objectionable
drug, but it is better to have it smoked
openly and . honestly, under a regime of
complete tolerence, than to have it
fmoked either flauntingly or secretly in
violation of law. '
The same reasoning applies, in some
ways, to the liquor traffic, but the sit
uation is really very different. Alcoholic
'-s-ijc have been outlawed because public
sentiment is against them. Evasion of
the liquor laws is the practice of a small
minority. Local prohibition had been
voted in the greater part of the country
before the prohibition amendment was
adopted, and so well is the public atti
tude known that there is, hardly a state
One People, One Flog
in i
ui :
Little Benny's
Note Book
where opponents of prohibition still dare
to suggest a popular vote on the subject.
But it is not on record that any state
or any city has voted againxt tobacco,
and anti-tobacco laws will he of no avail
until public sentiment has reached a
stage that makes that possible.
Crusades against tobacco are legiti
mate, but the crusaders should start as
the prohibitionists did, with local option.
Every man, woman and child in the
nation, whether riding or walking, has
his share in the responsibility for traffic
accidents. If these casualties are to be
reduced instead of increased, every per
son, old or young, must do his share to
ward their prevention. To bring this
home to the people of the United States,
the National Automobile Chamber of
Commerce has instituted a prize essay
competition to which every grammar
school pupil in the country will be elig
ible. The subject of the composition is
How Can I Make Hoad Travel Safer?
The essays are- to be handed in late in
the fall. National and state prizes await
the winners.
When school opens in September the
plans r the contest will be explained
fully everywhere, but summer, when mo
toring is at its height, is the best possi
ble time for working out the problem.
The prizes are attractive, but the ob
servation and study of traffic conditions
which must precede them is far more im
portant. When fathers and mothers and
children unite in noting how accidents
occur and in devising way to avoid
them, traffic education is on the up-grade.
Today's Events
Following an oil-stove fire at Barre
ast Tuesday, the fire chief of that city
gives some good advice regarding oil
burning stoves which is worth noting by
anyoneusing them. He says "If you use
oil stoves keep them clean, keep the burn
ers well trimmed ami do not leave the
house while they are in use. A box of
sand should always be kept near at hand
to throw on the flames in case of fire."
Even the most well behaved oil stove has
a way of "drawing up" when left to its
own devices and may become in a few mo
ments a dangerous thing.
Former Governor Stearns and his
town of Johnson seem to have been ig
nored by the state board of education in
the assignment of teacher training

sideration from his enemies.

always told the truth whether it is al

Now he must come home and be told it is
not always wise to tell the truth when
away from home.
