IN POLITICS Copy for change of ad must be hand ed in by Wednesday to insure change FRIDAY, JUNE 1, 1923 WATCH AND SEE. Word çomes from Boise that U. S. Senator William E. Borah will soon return to that city from the national capital to spend the summer in Idaho and there will no doubt be a lively skirmish during the next few months between the republican machine of the state and our senior senator. Already the "bought and paid fori' press of the state has begun hurling ver bal bombs in the senator's direc tion in an attempt to discredit him in the eyes of the public and belittle his efforts at the national capital. We predict the machine has a real job on its hands this time. Senator Borah is too big a man to lose the es teem of the voters of Idaho over night. He has been a national figure in the senate for years, known throughout the land for his ability as an orator and a thinker and for his stamina as a man who would not truckle to the behests of "big interests." Had he so desired he could no doubt have been drawing down an enormous salary from some of the large corporations of the country for many years past, but he could not be bought nor con trolled, hence the effort of the "machine" to do away with Idaho's primary law t*wo years ago and hand it to the senator at the next elation. And why this sudden change? The win ter can well remember some eight or ten years ago when the republican party rested its sole campaign argument on the one issue of "returning Senator Borah to office." But times change, and friendships with it. Senator Borah is now in bad grace with the republican machine, both state and nation, and is slated to take the side track. However, the machine does not control the free vote of the citizens of Idaho and Mr. Borah will be returned again to office, whether his name graces the republican ticket or some other. Watch and see. WOMAN STARTED SOME THING. The Virgania woman who pinned a note to a potato she had raised, reading; "I got 24 cents a bushel. What did you give?" started something, because the man who noticed the potato paid $1.20 a bushel, and the facts leaked out. Trust a woman to find an ingenious way to bring oppx'ession to public notice. Also, happily, trust the American man to change conditions when they assail the welfare of our woman hood. One of these days we will bring into being a real commis sion of inquiry, one with vision, one with practical business sense, one with sound economic knowledge and finally one with out self-interest and free from pull. An impossible combina tion? No, some day it will be found, and then a happier condi tion will arise as rapidly as the bloodsuckers who live on the labor of their fellows fall by the wayside.

Recently there was an article which had to do with the "silent rear gnard" that remains where the crosses are. There are something more than thirty thousand who have been left over there to keep this watch. A paragraph or two made ref erence to the arrivel at this bivouac of a little old man: "He was not well dressed, he had no overcoat, and he shivered a bit as he looked around him, uncertain what to do. The chap lain saw him first, and, going out, asked what he could do for him. The old man, in a tremu lous voice, said, T came—I came—my boy—can I see where he is buried?" "The chaplain removed the heavy army overcoat that he was wearing and, wrapping it about the little old man, went with him up the hill. I looked up there later, and saw the two kneeling in the wet grass by the side of the grave. The old father had brought a little silk flag with him, and this he placed by the cress. Then he trudged back down the hill. "He ha'd been saving his money for four years to make this trip. When he returned home he was comforted to some extent. The next day the little silk Hag was wet with the rain, and the colors had run into each other, but yet it was a precious thing as it fluttered in the wind among; the crosses." It is a simple story, simply told. And yet it reminds us of a part of; what Memorial day means.—Lewiston Tribune. Dr. S. B. L. Penrose, president of Whitman college at Walla Walla, has accepted a challenge issued by Rev. Bert A. Powell, secretary of the local Ku- Klux Klan to debate on the question of the klan's Americanism and will make public his arguments through the press, stating in part: "I accept your challenge but to defend my statement, not to attack the Ku Klux Klan. I am eager to help the people distin guish true Americanism from false and as I have already ad dressed the people of Spokane, Seattle and Walla Walla on the subject I wish to defend my fx> sition before them all. The arguments of Dr. Penrose will be read with interest by the public generally and we opine many will have reason to revise their opinion of what constitutes real Americanism by the time the debate closes. Henry Ford, like all men of wealth, has been accused of many things, both good and bad, but the limit has about been reached when the Jews assail him with charges of being the financial backer of the Ku Klux Klan.
