XXX JULY 20, 1922 No. 11 GOVERNMENT A DANGEROUS BUZZ SAW. Perhaps the strongest bulwark of the political boss is the almost univer sal belief that principles are greater than men. Scarcely a village, town, county or state that has not slipped over undesirable candidates as against ( decent men because of this conviction, so frequently in fact that it is time we turned the microscope on this very vital assumption. Morals are largely geographical and always subject to the times. The theory of right today may be wrong tomorrow. In the early days principles in government may have been more vital than men. Indeed this may be true today, but it is certain that today the character of the men we choose to serve us is more vital than ever before in history, for In matters of government we are compelled to put blind faith in the men we choose to serve us. Government has become so highly technical, so amazingly complex, that it is quite beyond the under standing of the average individual. The subtleties of civic finance, the in tricacies of export trade, the complexities of transportation problems by land and sea, the technique of tariff, the bewildering, contradictory elements C entering into scientific taxation, not to speak of the dazing problems of for eign relations, have removed government so far from the ken of the average a citizen that he has lost all touch with It; he feels it is something with which F he has grave concern, but in which he dares not to express an opinion. His happiness, his welfare, depend on the skill with which these technical prob lems are confronted, yet they can be man-handled to his complete undoing without his even sen.iing the folly of his representative. Summed up, gov- . ornment has gone completely from the hands of the people; it seems to have s outgrown the people. 'he people have not kept up with the procession. The press has been insufficient as an educational force, not for lack of desire, but because the press must exist and the people demand as the price of support the publication of trivialities. The great city newspapers have come to be a t mixture of Diamond Dick, Sherlock Holmes and Laura Jean Libbey, stripped of personality, often devoid of principle, pandering to the intellect of the flapper and assuming a "mis-leadership" based on bluff and bluster which N rests on the inability of the people to tear away the mask of mock heroics and bi disclose a half-baked understanding of our national vitamines. It seems as 01 If we must turn back the clock and take more careful measure of integrity lin sad ability in those we must trust to do for us the things we are unable 22 ourselves to understand. If not this, then we need some new system of ed- B, ucatioa in the land.

WI sic Most everything's a promise that we ruq acrost today; there's promises of better things, and promise to pay. . . The seed-time holds a promise Mi of the harves tthats' to come, and autumn brings its promise of the winter, leu cold and dumb. . . The promise of allegiance to our country binds as all -when the traitor breaks his promise, he is doomed beyond recall. .We hng the glitterln' prospecks when they promise a reward,-and base our o hopes eternal on the promise of the Lord. S We love the lad that promises a rich expanse of life, and crown the ate ttle aqueen that holds the promise of a wife. .. We seldom greet a omise with the shadder of a doubt-and the things that promise nothin' we are wise in kickin' out. . We smile at the clouds of promise, when Chi the crops is needin' rain, and we recollect the promise when the rainbow ton shlim again.-O, there's nothin' else but promise that can soothe the weary Ho' soul, while the only thing that's certain is the thing we can't control! And so, with helpful promises, bestowed on every hand, I wonder, after all, if 8 this could be the Promised Land? cra Taour Own, ing Hot ton, "WORKING HARD" To Serve Youa Well Witht Electricity SO Cnve.nit a Cheap NOW WRUNG AND AWUANCES ON MONTa.Y 1lUMS South New Orlesas Light & Traction Co.

Archeology has, in our day, become one of the most vividly interesting and thoroughly alive of pursuits, contin ually opening up new avenues of in quiry, and giving light and inspiration to the whole field of art. Archeolog ecal discoveries of the last fifty years have shown that the golden age of Greek art was more than two thou sand years in the making. It is strange enough to think that pre viously it was regarded as a spon taneous growth, with origins veiled in lmpenetrable mystery. Now, the ad venturer into the great regions of knowledge, where the story of Greek civilization enfolds Itself, may become possessed of at least the main facts of prehistoric epochs leg before Greek art became GreekL-criner's Maga rais HAMBONE'S MEDITATIONS AM TOL' KUNL 808 ANH JES' THIRTY-FO' YEAH OLE , BUT HE LOw DEY CAIN' NO NIGGUH IN DE WORL" EVUH GIT EZ r UGLY E AN IS IN DAT 1 SJHAWT A TME!! - /"" srUWl 851 h MClum NS.uI,,b- . .' dJ Stick to Our Standards and you'll not get "stuck" when you buy Mill Work for your new Home.
