In the Department of Latsir the Demo cratic administration established a wom an s bureau, which a Republican Congress destroyed by withholding appropriations Labor Is not a commodity; It Is hu man Those who labor have rights and the national security and safety deiend upon a Just recognition of tboe rights aud the conservation of tbe strength of the workers and tbelr families In the in terest of sound hearted and sound beaded men, women and children.

It long continued, disaster The whole people, therefore, have a right to Insist that Justice tball be done to those who work, and. In turn, that those whose labor creates tbe necessities upon which tbe life of the Na tion depends must recognize tbe reciprocal siMlgatlon between tbe worker and tbe state They should participate In tbe for mulation of sound laws and regulations governing the conditions under which la bor is performed, recognized and obey the laws so formulated and seek their amend ment when necessary by the processes or dinarily addressed to tbe laws and regula tions affecting the other relations of life Labor, as well as capital, la entitled to adequate compensation.

In private Industrial disputes, we are opposed to compulsory arbitration as a method plausible In theory but a failure In tact.

Both planks agree in favoring col lective bargaining and in opposing strikes and lockouts, though the Re publican plank speaks on this point in stronger terms. They agree in op posing compulsory arbitration but they disagree on the question of strikes by government employes. The Republican plank is definitely against them and the Democratic one is sil- The chief difference between the two planks Is that the Republican plank is addressed to the rights of the public and the Democratic plank if addressed to the rights of labor. vision Vision is the warp on which the tapestry of civilization is woven. The woof is made up of deeds held togeth er in a pattern by the warp-threads, the visions. A vision seen by one man, one group, or one nation, is another thread added to the warp. It permits the weaving of a greater, sometimes a more complicated, pattern a great er tapestry. Tenuous visions are the flimsy threads which break under the THE weight of tbe woof-threads of deeds as they are woven in. Tbe weaving Is snarled until the faulty warp-thread of Tlsion and the fouled woof-thread of deeds is raveled out. The visions that break cause the lost labor of man kind. They break the weavers hearts. ' Distorted visions are the woof threads which distort and make ugly the pattern that is, if the weavers do not reject the thread. Once the threads of deeds have been twisted under and oter the distorted vision warp-thread, the beauty of the tapes, try is lessened. Only good visions, rightly caught Into the woof of fu ture deeds, can atone for the lapse from beauty. Strong visions, conceived entire or made full by straight thinking, when added to the warp of old visions, In ite careful, painstaking work bj the weavers . They select the best deeds for the woof-thread. The weavers, knowing that their work is good, that It shall never be raveled, work to the pattern, now and then adding to its beauty. Without -.isions the weavers are idle. No woof-thread is used . What is already made is snarled and quick ly mildews to rottenness. Tbe tapes try of civilization swings in the winds of the years unfinished with its raw edge whipping out the threads, both of warp and woof. GIe us then, strong visions. Give in them that the weaving of the work ers ma never be revealed, that the beauty of the pattern may be as sym metrical as the curved masses of a cloud in a summer sky, that the wea vers may be happy in their work the tapestry of civilization which is to tang against tbe wall of the world for all time as they have woven iL CITY AND CAMPUS Mr. and Mrs. John X.
