NOTICE TO READERS
The Leader again has been
experiencing trouble' in securing
prompt delivery of print paper.
Not only is print paper scarcer
than ever before in recent years
(and four times the normal
price) but the present car short
age makes it impossible to get
prompt deliveries of paper that
has been purchased. For these
reasons it has again been neces
sary to consolidate two issues of
the Leader, this issue taking th«
place of those of May 24 and
May 31, under the latter date.
We now have sufficient print
paper promised to see us through
the summer, if delivery can b«
secured. We ask the indulgence
and patience of our readers dur
ing this emergency, which we
hope to see ended soon.

It isn't the high price of poli
tics that's causing General Wood
worry. It's having the people
find out about it.
Why doesn't some medium ask the
spirits of George Washington and
Abraham Lincoln what they think
about some of our 1920 "patriots"
of the raw product at quantity
prices. And this saving is turned
back to car owners.

All the talk of various organizations
on how to "beat the Nonpartisan
league" reminds one of the fable of
the mice who decided to bell the cat.
Wouldn't be a bad idea now if
some of these fellows who have
taken to wearing overalls should
go to work.

For her gasoline tank had a thirst,
But the cupboard was bare, no money
For old Hubbard had got to it first.

HEN you buy ,a pound of
sugar with your savings
from the bank, the grocer
you closely and he
hints you'd better PLANK. When
you buy a bit of lumber to repair
your silage tank, .you've got to
have the money before you' get a
PLANK. And when candidates'
machines are taken by their cranks,
the politicians talk about what they
will do for PLANKS. The glorious
old colors are hauled around in
hanks to furnish up the platform
and decorate the PLANKS. The
Bolsheviks and furriners come in
for sev'ral spanks, for "reds" are
always good, you know, for half a
dozen PLANKS. They praise the
boys who went across, the brave,
the valiant Yanks, they like these
men because they're worth another
couple PLANKS. And when elec
tion time is past, they all depart
with thanks, and after that the
voter is the only one who PLANKS.
