The United States stands NINTH. This th county, vuhich' we all claim to be so great, so rich, so much better than wE all others, is ninth among the nations when it comes to the education of ta its people. at The news is astounding, stupefying! And yet three years ago when we entered the war. twenty-five per cent ey of the men who went out from a single state to fight the nation's battles ipr had to be taught to sign their names. And, mind you, they were not foreign- po er--every one of these illiterate soldiers was an American born citizen. p Many more who could with difficulty write their name and read a bit were i-i so poorly educated that they could not study the common manual of drill. go Yes, education is free in our rich cities and in the well-to-do country regions. But the time has come for us to carry education-common-school fa education-into the mountains and deserts and other lonely stretches of our a land. di Ignorance is the greatest menace of any nation. We rail at Bolshevism hi in America and denounce its followers among us, but forget that it is nothing but ignorance, lack of education. And that is our fault, not theirs. WHO WILL DO THE "CONNON LABOR." At the present time there is a lot of unemployment in the country, and Congress has listened to the demands for immigration restrictions that will 01 keep foreign labor out of the United States. Aside from the question of B being "flooded" with this class of new citizens the more important issue p Is their competition with our own laboring classes. It was quite a different s] matter during the war. When there was not enough men in the country cl to to the labor of the mines and factories, there actually existed a strong 81 sentiment that was voiced in the public press, favoring more immigration. The incoming foreigners were not then considered as competitors in the field a of labor, sad therefore there was only small objection to their admission to a our shores. Today it is different. The facts go a long way towards dem- d oustrating that the industrial situation rather than Americanization senti- p meat rules the situation. This may not be right-nevertheless it is not L the Arst time that we have been reminded that "facts are stubborn things." C HONEST ADVERTISING. An honest advertising bill is likely to receive early attention in the extra Uleson of, Congress. No one has been able to positively define "honest adver tising," though it has been a subject of controversy since Gutenburg inked up the irst rollers used in printing. Congressman Rogers of Massachusetts, has an Idea that he knows a good deal about the subject, and hearings have besa held on his bill. It would apply to all commodities, the analogy of the pure food law to prevent misbranding. SSOB STUFF AND STONE HEART DO YOU OWE THE HERALD FOB SUBSCRIPTION. TWENTY YEARS AGO. In a. series of little paragraphs under the heading, "Twenty Years Age,'" we find one which reads: "Running a country newspaper was not a buslness." The paragrapher was right. But the war certainly has shows the editors and owners of country newspapers that their business is a business after all and must be run on business principles. The good old days when the editor could loaf around with a pipe ti his month and accept cord-wood on subscriptions are no more. During th war, ,the value of the paper to the community and to the country Sat large was clearly demonstr~ted. His fuall share of the burden of helpig to win the war fell on the country editor and he bore it bravely .a m d loyally. Here and there a weekly paper has "gone to the wall"; b' but largely they have met all condltions and given splendid service to " hemse and country. r And out of it all has come greet good for the paper because it has es, dee omastrated beyond any question that advertising pays. The gow , gmest has learned it in the Liberty Loan drives; the post-master has i-be N eeorineed by the demand for War Savings Stampe; the local Red C* m - a isgovered It through the responmses made to their appeals in the gaes!! the committees in charge of the varieus drive for war activities S il admit their labors were greatly lemsened by the publicity given to StheIr eampaigls in the otne papers. During all thse demands for tree publicity the editors save of their a whieh after all is their sole stock in trade. Expenses went up. St best of material and labor advanced, but the government eontinued to ~a the support of the eountry newspapers. Munition manufac --tltes, dealers in supplies for the army and navry, even laborers on gov emmeat Wekrr all paid and pald well, but the loyal home newspaper : trge on under the added load without a cry or a whine.

He must meet his bills on much shorter time than in the days before the war and he is entitled to the cash discount as well as the grocer, the druggist and any other business man. The postoffice department taught him a valuable lesson when it de manded that all unpaid subscrlptions mst be stopped. The weekly editor has been too easy-going. He has permitted himself to be imposed on too long. In order to exist today, he must do business as other men do business, and the town that wants a newspaper must treat that news paper as they do the bank or the telephone company. Yes, the paragrapher was right. "Twenty years ago running a weekly newspaper was net a business" and that was why the editor wore patches on the seat of his trousers and lived on free tickets to he mis ionary teas. It is different today and it is going to be even more so tomorrow.

DAVIS Born July 17, 18.34-Died Mar. 24, 1921 The death of James Cardinal Gib bons came peacefully to the noted prelate at the arch episcopal resi dence in Baltimore on the morning of March 24. Cardinal Gibbons was in his S7th year. Born in Balti more in 1S34, the boy who later rose to the highest post the Catholic church has to offer in America, was taken by his parents to Ireland tol be educated. He returned to Amer ica in 1853 and resided in New Or leans until 1%5, being employed in the G. Raymond grocery store on Camp street. Leaving this position as an errand boy, he began the study for briesthood, and his early labors carried him back to Baltimore, where he spent the major portion of his life, and where he was creat ed Cardinal by Pope Leo XIII, June 7, 1886. Cardinal Gibbons was a yearly vis itor to New Orleans, where he came to be with his brother. John T. Gib bons. Next to Baltimore, New Or leans came second in the heart of Cardinal Gibbons. His death is mourned throughout the country, for Cardinal Gibbons was endeared in the hearts of all classes and creeds.
