Chicago. Detroit. ECanaaa City. Atlanta WEDNESDAY MORNING, MAY 14, 1919 . GOVERNMENT INDORSES ADVERTISING Ihe volume of advertising: in the last few months, through the United States as a whole, has been unprecedented. Statistics collected from a number of sources show that greater use of advertising is being made than ever before. Thd information and education service of the Department of Labor commends heartily the present use of advertising as a most patriotic public service. During the war the department and other government agencies were compelled to ask people not to buy anything not actually essential, because the war had to go on; but now, when it is of the greatest importance that the wheels of industry start running smoothly, ad vertising and buying are the processes most nec essary to start them. By advertising extensively the seller informs his market what goods can be bought to advan tage. By careful reading of the advertisements the purchaser is enabled to choose discriminat , ingly, in order that his own need3 may be best ' met and in order that his money may be utilized to best purposes. ,The information service is doing what it can to co-operate with newspapers, advertisers, and the consuming public, in order, that the interests of all three may be served through the stimula tion of advertising. It is the view of department officials that the effect of the advertising al ready published has been marked in aiding the restoration of business to normal, and that through the consistent use of advertising much -. can be..done to achieve national prosperity. INHARMONIOUS DISTRIBUTION. A great American architect was in the habit , of using this expression to his clients and stu dents: - "The inharmonious distribution of expendi ture!" When asked for his meaning he explained that he once stopped in a hotel with a white marble "grand" stairway, the posts and ballusters 5f which were elaborately carved. To one side this stairway was the cheapest type of passenger elevator , that most of the time did not run by reason of its being out of order. The architect went on to explain that it would have been a more harmonious distribution of ex penditure to have spent less on elaborate mar ble carving and more on the elevator. X here is going to be a lot of home building within the next few years, and this principle of . inharmonious distribution of expenditure will apply to the frame dwelling quite as well as the commercial structure. In our home building of the past we have sac rificed much m the way of comfort and conven ience for mere bigness and useless elaboration But we are learning, for instance, that a chick en will cook just as well with the kitchen table or sink along side and next to the range rather than on the other side of a 16-foot room. ' The modern kitchen i3 small, very much in the nature of a laboratory, and is being designed to save steps and motions as in the case of the mod ern factory. We are learning that it is better to expend the cost of towers, dormers, elaborate gable fronts and beveled glass windows in more and better plumbing, heating and the general utilities of a dwelling, that it is the more harmonious dis tribution of expenditure. LESS DAYLIGHT, BIGGER DIVIDENDS. After years of agitation, the people of this ; country have won the fight for an "extra hour of daylight an hour in which city people who work in stuffy places can play outdoors, work their gardens, visit the parks, go swimming, take picnics in their flivvers, or visit with their neigh bors before the night shades fall. This was accomplished by the national "day light saving" bill, by which the clocks were ad vanced an hour in summer and put back an hour in winter. In some sections further daylight saving was accomplished by moving the limits of the national time zone a hundred miles or so westward, setting some cities that formerly used central time in the eastern time zone, some that used Mountain time in the central time zone, and so on. :- " . Now, suddenly, there has arisen throughout the nation an agitation to set the clocks back again- to abolish the hour or more of daylight that we now have in the evening and go back to the old discarded "sun time" that was unsatis factory even to our grandfathers. Why T Whence comes this cry for a return to "sun time?" Who is putting Up the money for all this agitation? In whose interest is the cam paign being undertaken? , The agitation springs from interests which are losing money through this law which is for the benefit of the people. They don't want people to spend these extra daylight hours in the country or in the parks or on the beaches or in their gardens in God's great out-of-doors, gathering health for the fu ture and strength for the morrow, breathing fresh air and basking in the evening sunshine. POLITICAL ECONOMY. Political economy, or social economy just as we have in mind to call it is very simple. Political economy Is nothing but business. And business is nothing but supplying ope another's wants. . When the druggist of a town wants food, he goes to the grocer. When the grocer wants medicine, he goes to the druggist. There is a system of counters known as mon ey and used to facilitate the bookkeeping of these transactions. A century ago, when this country was first settled, everyone did their own shoemaking and blacksmithing. Finally one man in a settlement evidenced more skill than his neighbors as a shoemaker, or as a blacksmith, and the neighbors found it good economy to allow this one to do their shoemak ing or blacksmithing while they pursued the gen eral arts of farming. Now, enlarge the process until tho country shoeshop becomes a vast shoe factory, or until the country blacksmith becomes a vast metal trade industry, with stores, railroads and banks to facilitate the distribution, transportation and exchange, and the simple principle of business, supplying one another's wants, remains quite the same. The science of political economy, or business, becomes confusing only when viewed in its ex tensions, specialties and refinements, but it is very easily understood, and all its ramifications are easily traced if the simple fundamental prin ciple is seen and borne clearly in mind. VOX POPULI. The Hiflh School At Gonaale. The Vocational High School at Gon zales la one of the state institutions that should receive more attention than it la probably getting. This la an institution of which the people ot West Florida may well be proud. The rural peoples in particular should know and appreciate the sc.i:cl so well and beautifully located at Gon zales. ', - . The federal government cooperates wh th ntnto in maklnff the school a great community institution designed to benefit the whol country side by supplying every need in the way or practical and industrial education. When a dormitory is erected, which will be done this fail, it will be able to reach and benefit a much larger number of people. The school lia-3 a splendid faculty with Professor John Diamond as president. He ranks high In educational circles a graduate of the University of Florida and a member h of the board of control of the state's educational institutions. Since the influenza epidemic of a few months ago, subsided, the school has done excellent work. The great crowd that pressed Into and overflowed the auditorium at commencement exercises last week indicated already creating a strong community spirit between old settlers and new comers. People with divergent views and customs Are brought into fellowship and comjradship through the fusing influence of the one institution upon which are all agreed and feel the same way. The school is young, in fact in ifs infancy, yet graduated three students at commencement, namely, Mis ses Bag gett and Theima Tisdell and Mr. Joseph Jennings all of whom acquitted them selves with honor. The address was delivered by Dr. Cox, dean of the Uni versity of Florida. It was a great speech. Alain I would say that the people of the western part of the state should awake to a realization .of the value of aninstitution likethe Vo cational Training School at Gonzales. It's Easy to Pee!

Calkins, and the speaker of the house. George H. Wilder, stood waiting to re ceive them. To the Public: According to a statement appearing in the Times Union of the 9th inst., it is made to appear that I have approv ed of the Fish bill, now being consid ered before a Joint committee of the senate and house of representatives. I saw the bill and heard it read just as its drafting was completed, but I have done for this bill as I did in the matter of the other fish bills that have come up since I have been com missioner; I have simply let it alone.
