ELSNER ARTHUR FRAME For Road Commissioner— GUST JOHNSON WHY HE WANTS A CHANGE Now and then we hear from cer tain "independent” voices, journalis tic or individual, that there is no real differences between the major parties and the country would be equally well off under a Republican or a Democratic administration. If that be so, it would be gracious and appropriate service to the public if your “independent,” who is uniform ly impartial and judicial in word, and always partisan in deed, would sup port the Republican ticket. He nev er does. He discovers the absence of all distinction between the parties only on those occasions when he is on the loser's side, or fears that he will be. Then he is filled with a great and holy zeal to suppress all Figns of partisan spirit in the oppos ition. Indeed, in the lexicon of the "independent" when it is Republican it is partisan; when it is Democratic it is non-partisan. The whole theory and scheme of Democratic partisan ship is to persuade any other kind of partisan that he should not sup port the principles nor the can didates of the Republican party. Let the professional independents and spurious non-partisans go down south and preach their doctrine there* Let them begin by helping to break up the Solid South and thus reduce the two parties to equal terms, so that the tremendous handicap to free party action of ten or eleven states devoted always to stark partisanship may be removed. Let it not be al ways clear that the rise of non-parti sanship in one section of the country may not only serve the aims of par tisanship elsewhere. it is a significant fact that in the south there are nine or more states which in fifty or sixty years have voted one way only in presidential years (except under coercion during the “carpet-bag” era); and it is an equally significant fact that there is only a single state north of (he Mas on and Dixon line which in a half century has an unbroken record of voting for one party. This means that the Republican party stands for growth, progress, freedom of opin ion and discussion, new ideas, new leaders, new light; it means that the Democratic, party is too much wedded to old issues, old habits, old thoughts —all of which spell stagnation and reaction. The president of the United States said once in a public address that the Republican party had not had a new idea in fifty years. This shows the length to which egotism, intoler ance and pride will go. It was not true. It was probably not expected that it would be accepted as literal truth. It would be interesting to know just What new idea the Demo cratic party has fostered, in the last half century, that had not first had its origin elsewhere and had not been sponsored by some element within the Republican party. This is not to say that it had always been adopted by the Republican party. Too often it has not been, and at times the failure of the Republican party to act has been the opportunity of its enemy. A split among the Re publicans in 1912, for example, led to election of President Wilson. A catch phrase elected him in 1916. But no Republican division exists in 1920, and the inventors of Demo cratic slogans have been singularly unfertile, and everybody knows what is going to happen in November. Why is it that the people are so 'heartily and unreservedly renewing their confidence in the Republican party? Is it because of the League of Nations—the league. A league or no league? It is not. Is it because : of the “senate oligarchy” or belief I in its non-existence? It is not. Is ! it because of prohibition? It is not. 1 Is it because of progressivism and its promises or of reactionism and its menaces? It 4e not. Is it because of the tariff? It is not. Is it because of high taxes and the cost of living? It is not, wholly. What then is the reason. I The reason the country faces an impending change, and that a vast majority of voters m their present humor propose to make it, is their complete loss of confidence in the present national administration and the Democratic party. Whether or not four years of Cox means four more years of Wilson—as Cox prom ises—the electorate will take no chan ces. If it means the end of Wilson ism, and merely the beginning of Cox j ism, again the voters intend to take no chances. They have had enough of the Democratic party for the pres ent and enough of Wilson for all time, and they are looking for no i legatees or crown princes of Wilson | ism to put in his place. The citizen may indeed have this or that parti cular reason for voting against Cox and for Harding, but behind it all is his dissatisfaction with the present I regime, his desire for a change, and his belief that the Republican party is better qualified to meet the great problems which confront the country.

Because of habit, we all do work that could be done as weil and as cheaply by others. Many woman have their washing done at home because of habit the old tradition that it can be done better and more cheaply than in a modern laundry. But facts are not in accord with this old belief. The scientific manner in which clothes are now washed and sterilized in a mod ern laundry such as ours, not only produces superior work, but actually saves you money when time, material and fuel are con sidered. Every week, more women are deciding that "Sending it to Jones” is the efficient way—breaking away from the old habit of home washing, with its attendant backaches, worry and slush, and now devoting this time to reading, walking, shopping or sew ing.
