FAILURE, AND A REASON
Lest some reactionary herald the discovery
with a blare of trumpets, we hasten to note that
the co-operative packing plant at La Crosse,
Wis., has closed its doors.
"The concern," say press dispatches, "was un
able to raise enough capital to run the business
A knockout by the Ueef Trust?
Yes, but only a featherweight was knocked
The La Crosse effort was too small to COM with
the mighty packing monopoly, which used every
devious method known to big business to make
certain that the effort should never grow large
enough to endmiger Beef Trust profits.
Co-operation on a bigger scale is being tried
by the organized farmers of North Dakota,
When they get their packing plant going,
watch out for a real scrap 1
If the beef trust can put the 810 co-operative
packing plant out of business, then will be the
lime for reactionaries to chortle over the col
lapse of co-operation.

Prevention of disease Is now the first law in medicine.
The best prescription for preventive medicine is made up
of sunshine, fresh air, wholesome food, personal cleanliness

It ls important in prevention or all diseases to build up the
body and mind together. Overstudy and overwork tend to
weaken the resistance of the body and are Just as injurious as
any other form of excess.

AN UNDESIRABLE CITIZEN
A man who can build a home and "raise" a fam
ily and put some money into the hank betide**—when
he's earning only 90 a day—is an undesirable citizen.
For what kind of a CITIZEN can such a man be! And
what kind of a FATHER! What can life mean to him. And
to those for whom he is responsible, when he stints and scrapes
and sacrifices, no matter what his economy may cost in ths
terms of narrowed life?
Americans have been charged with the sin of extrava
gance. Perhaps we're guilty of It. HUT YOU NEVER SAW A
RICHER, FREER, MORE WHOLESOME PHOPLE ANYWHERE
ON EARTH THAN YOU'LL FIND IN THESE UNITE!) STATES.
Bankers, social workers, economists, teachers and preach
ers—all have been telling us that the poor ought to "save as
much as possible!"
But one gets eternally tired of the constant effort to save,
gave, save—for what? There are any number of way* in which
money may be spent foolishly, but the spending of money for
the purpoae of enriching life equip* one to earn more money.
Money spent In this way Isn't wasted. It's a lot better to
get a bigger outlook on life through travel, and study, and
music, and reading, and going out to see things, than it ls to
■tack away your coin and go through life with your eyes and
heart and mind closed to those things which really constitute
If a knowledge and appreciation of these things make you
more of a man, your money has been well invested, even if
you never succeeded in putting a penny into the bank.
Anyway, suppose all of us were to follow the advice of
our friends the economists and save all that we possibly could
What would be the result?

It's a fine thing to build a home. It's still better to raise
a family. But you can't build the home AND raise the family
on a measly $2 a day—and do It RMOHT. Especially If you
put part of your $2 Into a savings bank.
Better put your money Into books and papers and concerts
and lectures and movies and better food so that you'll be broader
and bigger every day that you live, '-fills Is even a better in

WHY 18 YOUR I U1IM) FRIENDLY?
"About this time, Margie, I had a 'terrible jolt,' as Emma would
say," Paula continued.
"You see, I had never looked upon myself as being any different
than I was before I went on the stage, but I found that my friends
looked upon me as belonging to Bohemia.
"By the way, Margie, I have often wondered what Bohemia
means to different people. Certainly, its boundaries are most elastic,
for they can be stretchod 'way out to where the most limitless im
aginations can carry them.
"However, what gave me a shock was the fact that to some of
my old time friends I was supposed to be living within the purlieus
of that delectable land which is only reached by primrose paths. For
Instance, I received, one day, from Charlie Montgomery a note ask
ing me to lunch with him at the Heaux Arts »fhe next day. The note
ended with this foolish little rhyme:
" 'Oh, promise me that some day you and I
Will lunch together somewhere on the sly;
That you'll forget just for one day
The path that's called the straight and narrow way.
The dalliance path of primrose we will tread
And talk rare nonsense while we eat French bread.
We'll drink from bottles cold of bubbles free.
Oh, promise me, oh, promise me.'
"At the time I was very much insulted, but I afterward had to
parry so much worse innuendos, that today I look upon poor old In
ebriated Charlie as quits innocuous.
"He thought his little rhyme was smart instead of naughty.
However, I wrote him I would lunch with him In the respectability
Of Sherry's, provided he would bring my cousins Gertrude and Ger
uldine with him.
"I thought that would mean refusal, of course, for 1 did not
dream either of my cousins would want to lunch with me. Much to
my surprise, the next day another note came from Charlie Montgom
ery saying tlie girls would be glad to como and he was delighted to
think I held no grudge against him for all the notoriety he had
" 'I was just plain drunk, Paula," he wrote me, 'and you know
today would lie the proudest moment In my life if you would consent
to marry me, for with all my nonsense, I honor jour grit and deter
mination more than anything I have ever known. I have never known
a man who would pull through as you have done, let alone a woman.
" 'Why, I saw that girl Emma at the College Inn the other day
and she told me some of the things you were up against, and it made
me feel like the skunk that I am. I am glad that I'm forgiven and
ever after I'll be good.'
"1 have found since, Margte, that you can make real friends of
the men who sometimes want you for something else."

Portraits of the
Women of 1917!
THE COLLEGE GIRL
When wo-i-tan was finally admitted to higher education the first
discovery she made was that the world Is full of a number of iuterest
hiu Uiings beside in in!
BY WINONA WILCOX.
Woman remains as she came from the Garden of
Eden except for the development of her mind. Con
cerning this, man's chief dread has been that she
might grow too wise.
When he could no longer delay her higher educa
tion, when at last woman was admitted to college, the
first discovery she made was exactly what man
feared: the world is full of a Bomber of interesting
things besides Himself!
This knowledge puts the college girl in a class by
herself. It rather limits her influence with the other
sex, and with a vast number of her own sex to whom
all wisdom is superfluous except that which begins
and ends with Man.
The college girl, In fact, delglhts In being able to stand alone
beside man, not supported by him. Spinsterhood ls no humiliation to
her. She does not lose (j_ste if she fails to marry. This is the chief
distinction between her and other women.
Thus she Is the only really free woman; she does not
fall in love because she is expected to do so; nor from mere
idleness; nor as a passing amusement. If love conies her
wuy, she reasons about It as well as feels. She will discuss
family limitations or trial marriage with her betrothed as
iinpta■sonall) as if the subject were the cost of a refrigera
And she will put the most disillusioning tests to herself. For
example, is she willing to pledge herself to sit opposite one man, and
no other, at all of her meals for all the rest of her life? She realizes
that the conventions exact this, and she decides whether the man is
worth the price BEFORE she accepts him.
This habit of thinking BEFORE SHE ACTS makes her a bit try
ing to the average lover. By his inheritance from all .time, man pre
fers an impulsive woman who will assume all regrets, If her Impulses
To the reasoning college woman be must bring credentials, and
he knows that she is well qualified to detect forgeries.
But If she expects honesty in man, the college girl also returns
it. She Is very apt to despise the rouge stick, mock jewels, affected
manners, extravagant dress, social and Intellectual snobbery. And she
entirely upsets old notions about the sloth of the educated woman.
No lazy woman could ever acquire a college degree.
Her choicest characteristics, in short, are Just those
which one would put into an advertisement for a callable
maltl —"must be honewt, intelligent and not afraid to work."
The college girl is very proud of her "reference." She ls the
only true democrat among women. After all .though the poet meant
it in quite a different sense, "Julia O'Grady and the colonel' lady
are the same down under their skins." The college girl is still Eve's
daughter with all her charms and graces plus "honesty, intelligence
and willingness to work."
