Uach day all the leading papers are purchased for the purpose of gleaning the current events. Miss Sender goes over the general news paragraphs carefully ad then gives her particular atten tin to the editorial pages. For here it is that she believes that the trend of events is portrayed, and the Unhiased mind can choose the mid dle road and at the same time be besefitted nlatellectually. A great deal of enjoyasmt has been procured lately by Miss Zende through read lag the political bickerings of the pestles responsible for the namerous presidentlal aspirants that have ap peared In the offering lately. The uuabbles, pro and con, as to the several choices for the highest offer iag of the public, are indicative, so Mss Sender thinks, of a grand ,sramble In the convention cities in the near future. One column In the dallies which receives the particular attention of MIe Sender is that whiteh contains SihteN eot to the editors giving per -eoal views on matters of the day. lho "Public Forum," the "Von Ppull", etc., columns are interest Sat and amusing, for they contain OWa queer arguments.

These dark-eyed Spaniards will give four dances of their native country, and will wear different costumes for each. Another act claims half of the headline honors on this bill. It is the musical revue, "Bits and Pieces," with Jack Patton and Loretta Marks as the stars. The very names of Bobbe and Nel son are enough to make the corners of one's mouth turn upward. Rare comedians, these two! Their skit is called "His Girl," and in addition to being funny, it contains some mo ments of melody. Bob Hall, known everywhere as "that extemporaneous chap,", Is coming back to make rhymes to or der. Another song-writer is making a vaudeville tour. This time it is L.

IAOC'AL INIDIAN MOTORCYCLE DEALER, PLAN NING CELEBRATION FOR WASHINGTON'S BIRTH DAY. In motorcycles throughout the country, Washington's Birthday, February 22nd. is known as INDIAN DAY and marks the opening of the new riding season. Annually since 1915 motorcyclists and their friends have chosen the birthday of the Father of our Country as the opening of the new riding sea son, and have celebrated the event by gathering at the near est INDIAN MOTORCYCLE dealer's place of business for a rousing good time. The day is one of good-fel lowship and has grown in impor tance each year since its inception in 1915. This year, the local dealer, G. N. Gonzales, whose place of business at 1430 Canal, has always been a gath ering place for motorcyclists, will celebrate INDIAN DAY with suit ableable functions. Souvenirs will be distributed, a ride will be in dulged in, and other features will make the day a pleasant one. Motor cyclists are invited, and of course, it is to be understood that the gen eral public is welcome as well, and the ladies will be especially welcome since Mr. Gonzales is of the opinion that no celebration is complete with out the presence of the fair ones.

Indian Day is a fixture on the annual calendar of motor cycle events, so much so that it is lopkes forward totob r motorcycle riders everywhere as a part of the rights gained through the ownership of a motorcycle. Mr. Gonzales an nounces that he will hold open house from sunrise to midnight. PIIBBURY GARDEN FRIDAY NIGHT. Jim Griffin, the lFrisco heavy weight, is getting the opportunity of his brief career Friday night at Pilsbury Garden, when he clashes with Captain Bob Roper in a fifteen round bout. He is being thrust head long into tlie golden chance of ac quiring a national reputation at the expense of Roper, and thus also gain ye shekels of the realm. It will be remembered a few weeks ago Griffin came to New Or leans along with Frankie Farren and Joe Coffey, anxious to show local fandom their wares. All three were matched in an all-star bout as an introductory measure, and Griffin won his bout handily. He stop ped the Russian Bear in one round, succeeding in dropping the Bear during the first thirty seconds of the round. The promoters immediate ly began angling for a real opponent for Griffin, and signed up Knockout Brown? Two days later Brown sent word that he injured his hand, and Roper was obtainod. Griffin has figured in fourteen fights in his eareer with varius heavyweights on the Pacifle eoast. He lost his first battle and won the thirteen straight following by knock outs. Among those promladat whom he stopped is Wild Bill Reed, who re cently sent Willie Meehan ito dreamland, Ralbirds believe that Griffin has an excellent chance with Roper in view of his hefty punch and ftigures to make it real Interest Ins for the eptaa.

Every metropoiltan journal has its department devoted to the subject. One gains very little from them. It does seem that the final IEsue depends upon the answer, do wo eat to live or do we live to eat? It Is venerable alternative that is de cried because the idea of eating to live is unpopular, says Ohio State Journal. Living to eat seems to be the universal habit. That, of course, pushes aside the simple diet, with its accompanying avoidance of narcotics and alcoholics. The living-to-eat advocates Ignore the fact that the truest living comes from eating to live; not only the truest liv ing, but the highest enjoyment. Men have contracted diseases and invited an early old age by eating everything they want, for when they do this, they overeat themselves. Many a noble person has made a wreck of his life by giving free play to his appetite. Many a man who scouted the idea of simple living is sleeping under the sod. In accounting for the death of a gifted man, who had gone to an early grave a friend said of him: "lHe was a great eater." Could that account for it? One sure cure for bolshevism in this country, If It were worth the time and a expense, would be an arrangement whereby those Americans who believe I In Lenine and Trotzky might be sent t over for a vacation sojourn in Russia. I Emma Goldman has had the seales knocked from her eyes, and now comes Mrs. Philip Snowden, long the leader of the Lenine lovers In England, to an nounce her complete conversion. Mrs. Snowden was a member of the British labor delegation sent to investigate soviet Russia. Lenine and Trotsky were polite and agreeable hosts, but though they did their utmost to make everything seem fair and sweet they didn't succeed In fooling Mrs. Snow den, mys Philadelphia ecord. Ras sia, she says, is a land of terrible tyr anny, Infinitely worse than ever it was under the czars. It used to be thought that there wasn't work enough to go round and that It was necessary to restrict pro duction so as to make more work. But that is an exploded theory. It has been demonstrated over and over that the world is full of opportunity. The more work done the greater the gen eral wealth of the community and the more work ther is to do. A higher level of production will keep wages from falling with other prices. It de pends on the man. If the worker who has been easing off, restricting his out put, can bring himself back to a better standard, then it will be possible to maintain the high wage scale, msay Kansas City Star. Otherwise the equal Ising process during a general decline will force a reduction In wages. Though the farmers of the country are complaining and with some show of justice, that they are receiving too small a portion of the price consum ers are paying for farm products, it seems to have been surmised by teen men of money and of business that farm lands are a pretty good thing to possess, says Seattle Post Intelllgen cer. At any rate, the prices of im proved farm lands have increased greatly since the war years, and after, mat prices skyward, and buyers have been eager to pay their money for the lands at tbhe new price.
