HARDING PRAISES ... HIS ASSOCIATES President-elect Speaks of Men .Who Have Made Themselves. PII7T,ADKLPinA, Fob. 27. The 'bulletin of the- American Hducatlonal association issued today ' carries the following message from President elect Yvtirren O. Hurtling: . "Here on my desk I am keeiiring a photograph of a group of my old friends, taken on my front porch ono day the past autumn. It has boon a reminder and an inspiration to me many time; a reminder of the unlim ited posfeibilit'es of American life, and and Inspiration to all efi'ort that thosi possibilities may be preserved and broadened. Lot me point out some of them. "Here is a man who started life as a 'rater boy on a railroad construction gang, bee:. me a telegrapher, and is now a millionaire captain of Industry -head of, a great industry which he conceived, built and controls. "Next to him is another with a Ilka beginning; a poor by who had llttlo education and no chance but what he made for himself out of this country's opportunities, lie Is one of the most important railroad executives in Ohio today. "Here Is one of the men who have mado Marlon. He was a farm boy in tliis country, didn't know what it would mean to have a dollar to spend freely. Now he is a dominating figure In one of the largest manufacturing industries in the state an Industry whose products go literally all over the world. "Down In the bottom row is a young man who came up by the same route, lie had nothing, and imagined him self well started toward success when he became a country telegraph opera tor and station agent, while yet a mere boy. He has risen step by step to be, today, gtneral manager of one of the country's great railroads. "So on through the list. No man In that group of nine started with, ap parently, an even start for success. They all knew the hard ways, the real privations. Their story tells us what America means, and why we must make it continue to mean opportunity and Inspiration, and the reward of merit. Kvery. work to that end Is to be commended and encouraged." Passengers Taken to Chicago. CHICAGO, Feb. ,27. The uninjured passengers on the New York Central train which crashed into a Michigan Central train at Porter, Ind., were brought into Chicago on a special train late tonight. John H. Golhart, of Oak Park, Ills., one of the New York Central pas sengers, gave a graphic description of the wrock as follows: "The first intimation we had of the disaster came when our train began to Jerk and Jump when the emergency brakes were suddenly applied. "The next moment the windows were shattered by bits of wreckage there was a terrific grinding as we ploughed through the other train. Women began to scream and I found myself lying alongside the track. "We crawled out of the wreckage as best we could. On all sides were peo ple lying on the ground, some dead and some injured. Many of the bod ies were badly mangled. "Every one was running around frantically, flames and clouds of steam were shooting from the engines but wreckage of the cars did not catch fire. "The trainmen quickly obtained axes from the cars and. armed with these the passengers helped in the work of recovering the bodies. "There Mas little help for the injur ed but we tried to make them com fortable until the rescue trains arriv ed." . Word received at Michigan Central offices here at midnight said that 27 bodies had been taken from the wreckage and that not manyv more were believed still hidden in the debris. More than one hundred injured, se riously and slightly had been sent to hospitals at Chesterton.

Born at 20 West Garden St. They can put in your heating plant, too. The surest way to a man's heart is through his stomach. The lady of the house knows this, so to satisfy daddy and the boys arid keep them all in good humor she gets the best of vegetables. She f.nds them at Hoyt Bros. & Co.. 103 North Palafox, and then she goes to Sprinkle's Cash Mar ket, 11 W-Romana, because there she finds the 'freshest meats on the mar ket and she knows his place iT so sanitary. Bread is the staff of life so she stops in at Pfeiffer's Bakery, 207 East Intendeneia, where she knows she can always get such nice fresh bread. Now she remembers that she is out of coffee, so she goes to J. E. Dubuisson at 234 East Intendencia, be cause she knows he always lias the best. Before returning home she stops In at the "Merit" Laundry at 15 W. Romana to see about having some dry cleaning done. Their work speaks for itself and sh likes to go there for, as she says, they merit your patronage. Talk about the high cost of living. Go to Anson's Shoe Store and for get all about high r;ces and they have such kinr. pcoa-tooking clerks. No wonder all the ladies go there. The cold weather is nut over yet and so wifey advises hubby to go to Bowers and Capers 'to get one of his splendid new overcoats at greatly reduced ' figures and he is as charmed with the attention he receives there as wifey was with Anson's clerks. Before dying we must all get sick in order to give the doctors a living. When you are sick you want only the best treatment. Go then and consult W. C. Goelz. IDs office is 329 Brent Building.

My Srother is a few doors farther down at the Pensacola Gregg School, 357 Brent Building. He is sure of a position when he finishes with Miss Ida Goelz, that's why he goes thei.e to learn shorthand. Some people allow their cars to remain Idle just because they don't understand how to fix it. Why not bring it around to the Pensacola Elec tric Garage, corner Chase and Baylen? They can remedy any kind of bat tery trouble. Or perhaps it needs a new tire. Why not telephone 223?

Women Must Be Citizens Now as Well as Reformers By Mrs. Jacob Riis FOR a good many years, women along with their struggle for MlTersal suffrage, have heen fighting for certain specific re ! forms, "welfare measures." Child labor bills, mothers pensions, mini -num. wage laws, and other similar steps toward greater pro tection for women and children in Industry and in society have had leading' traces on SO per cent of the club programs of the coun try and have been the use of a great deal ot diligent, unselfish and effective work on tb part of Individual women as well as of organizations. Those welfare measures served a double purpose. They did bene fit the groups affected by them, and of almost eaual importance, Ihey brought women up againat the whole world of social and political work. Other measures ha-re been before the country during those same years, which were probably of enal impor tance in their bearing upon the well-being of its people. But they lacked the dramatic ele ment. They were concerned, not with people directly, but with economic laws which Just as truly, but not as directly, deter mine the welfare of those same people. There was nothing in them to act as a rallying cry to an unenfranchised group only be ginning to grasp its power and responsibility in public affairs. Now then That croup is enfranchised. It must work, not only to influence legislators to vote for certain bills but to elect or defeat those legislators upon their entire records.
