DECEMBER 10. 1920 VALE. NON-PARTISAN LEAGUE The recent election resulted in wiping out the North Dakota Non Partisan League as a political men ace in all western stateE. Farmers are withdrawing finan cial support and refusing to pay their poFt-datcd checks and subscriptions and there are more bills than cash. Banks are refusing to take the checks and one bank in Colorado re ports holding over a hundred of the 816 obligations for dues. The Kansas City Post, a Demo cratic paper that repudiated the program of state socialism put for ward by the League says: "When the campaign of education against the league was started, many of the farmers who had given these checks made up their minds that they had made a mistake. The first thing they did was to stop pay ment upon their checks for their membership fees. "It is estimated that the league membership has been reduced by fully one-half in the last few weeks, and country bankers and merchants predict the league will be a thing of the past within another year."- - The Manufacturer. Shipwrecked Among Cannibals (New York Sun-Herald) Occasionally real life outstrips even the movies. Such is the case this w«ek at the Astor Theatre, which has gone into its summer film session with "Shipwrecked Among Cannibals." and equipped with fans and cool air ventilators ro moderate the effects of some of the scenes on the hot South Sea Islands. This picture purports to show how a couple of men. sen* by the Universal Film Company to take filniF of a few harmless volcanoes, were shipwrecked on a savage is land and ran into a cannibal tribe, which was much more exciting than any mere volcano. Of course the fact that the men were able to sal vage their movie cameras from the wreckage and take numerous clo«e ups of the fesrsome Kia Kla head hunters might suggest that some of the scenes lacked the charm of spontaneity—that the Americans did, indeed, win the confidence of the nrtives so far as to bring them close to the camera without kicking.

These figures are offered for the consideration of the persons who have talked about the coutraction of credit or who hold that credit should be granted more freely The waste of war and the era of extrava gance following, with immense amounts of money and credit involved in the buying of auto mobiles and their upkeep, may be given as the chief causes of the present financial stringency in addition to local agricultural conditions. With the balance of trade retnrniog in favor of farming communities we will see a return to prosperity. No community can be prosperous that buys more than it sells. Credit as represented by notes and other promises to pay has been overworked. A change to the solid ground of business based on present ability, although painful, is absolutely necessary. Better have a smaller but safe business. A good rule is never to borrow or owe for more than one-third of the capital involved in any transaction or enterprise.
