THE LADY AND THE ICE CREAM
It was red hot in Washington
on May 19'h. Mrs. John Hays
Hammond, wife of our special
embassador to the coronation,
thought it would be nice to send
ice cream to 1295 sweltering
young women at work in the cen
svs bureau.
When the teams backed up to
the building with the cooling
stuff, the census girls gave three
cheers to the richwomen who had
remembered them, did’nt they?
No. not exactly. They made a
loud noise but no one confounded
it with cheering. They refused
the donation with emphatic in
digdation and their spokeswoman
said:
“It is ridiculous for a rich
women to send ice cream to us,
who are earning from SS(JU to
SIBOO a year. It is on a par with
the wile ot a former presidential
candidate who said we ought to
wear uniforms to distinguish us
from ladies. We won’t stand for
such nonsense. We can buy our
own Ice Cream. Though we
work for a living many of us come
Irorn better families than some of
these new-rich people.”
Are you ashamed of these cen
sus girls or are you proud of them?
It was pretty rough on Mrs. Ham
mond, who was moved by the in
stinct of pity, and yet no thought
ful American will tail to under
stand why ice Cream was rejected,
nor fait to app'aud the young
women of the census bureau.
They sounded one of the deep
■ acial notes of the time. The
people who are working for a
living In America will not ac
knowlodge their inferiority to
rich society women whose hus
bands, in some cases, “made"
their millions by grabbing the re
sources of the earth and exploit
ing the necessities of the people.
They will not accept the remotest
shadow of beggary like some ot
the “lower classes” in others lands.
They want equality and justice,
notfree ice cream.
Good Mrs. Hammod has dis
covered that the social themom
eter is away up above 100 these
days. And still rising! ! ! —Ouray
Herald.
UNIVERSITY? NO! NOT THAT!
Mrs. E. H. Harriman threatens
to use her late husband’s millions
to found a new university as a
monument to his memory. Oh,
Mrs. Harriman, please don’t! We
have so many universities, so
many monuments! Of course we
must do something with those
millions. You can never spend
them, nor even the income they
are earning days, nights, Sundays
and nolidays. You can’t tike them
with you any more than your able
husband could take them with
him. They must fall from your
pulseless hands at the grave. It is
fine of you to want to get rid of
them while you are alive, and
finer still to want to get rid ot
them to benefit somebody, and ol
course it is natural and loyal ter
you to want to use tnem in away
to perpetuate the name of Harri
man, one of the remarkable and
creative geniuses of his time.
But—
We don’t need any more uni
versities endowed with the money
Of the rich! There are a lot of
things we need however.
We need a humane solution of
the problem of labor and capital
which will bring sweetness and
light into the lives of those who
toil, while still paying a reason
able sum upon the money in
vested. I’ut a million dollars into
each of 25 factories in 25 industri
al centers throughout the JJnited
States. I’ay capital 4 or 5 per
cent and let all the rest of the pro
fits go to make higher wages,
shorter hours and lower prices.
Give us the Harriman factory sys
tern! The rest of the world will
come to it. or the Harriman fac
tory system wnl do all the bus
iness.
We need comfort and beauty in
tn_ homes of the workers. Build
fine houses in town and garden
cities in the suburbs and rent or
sell then, on a basis that shall re
turn a modest profit, yet put such
homes within reach of all, Give
us the Harriman home building
system! In a tew years private and
public capital will follow where
you led.
We need a colonization policy
that shall open the lan.! not only
to those who have monev, but to
those who have not. New Zeal
and and Australia can tell you
how to do it. But no one in the
United States is doing it now.
Give us the Harriman colonies!
The nation will soon walk in your
footsteps.
By all means, Mrs. Harriman
should build a monument to her
husband instead of piling her su
perfluous and prepo.tr ou. fortune
higher and then leaving it to those
who have no possible use for it,
but let it be a monnment that
shall speak forever in the elo
quent voice of love ralher than in
the cold accents of pride!
Ah, Mrs. Harriman, what an op
portumty!—Ourav Herald.
“See Colorado” is
Slogan of Billy Paget
Prominent Hotel man heads
move fur bureau that will interest
tourists in the state.
“See Colorado First” is a motto
that is being exemplified in a most
effective manner by William Pag
et, manager of the Albany hotel
in Denver, and formerly proprie
tor of the Columbian hotel in
this city. This prime booster is
taking the initiative in a move to
establish a bureau of information
concerning Colorado, tor the ben
efit of fourists. The name of the
organization has not been selec
ted but its purpose will be to co
operate with the Hotel Men's As
sociation and the commercial or
ganizations of the country in in
ducing the tourists to see all of
Colorado while they are in the
district.
“Far too many ot our visitors,’
said Mr. Paget recently, “make
only a flying visit to Denver and
they leave for Salt Lake City or
some other point out of the s.ate.
For their own pleasure and profit
as well, they should be furnished
with more detailed information
concerning the Centennial state ”
Mr. Pager rcscntly delivered an
address along this line to the
members of the Chamber al Com
mcrce at Fort Collins. How
many of these present," he said,
have heard of Steamboat Springs?
Instantly every hand was raised
“Now how hor many present can
tell of some of the attractions that
Steamboat Springs has for the
pleasure seeker, or the investor?"
No hands were raised. ■ How many
here," Pabet contin, "have heard
of the prettis natural resort in
Colorado, the Stonewall valley ?"
Only a few present had even heard
ot Las Animas country's scenic
resort. In this manner, Paget is
emphasizing the need of instruct
ing the visitor about all of Col
orado. The plan has met the
eaily approval of the hotel men,
the commercial bodies and the
real estate men of the state, and
its scope is likely to be extended
so eastern points. A secretary of
the organization may be located in
Chicago, Not only the Albany
hotel, but all of Denver and the
entire state would profit by such a
method of publicity and education.
Poget is the broad gauge variety
of boosters, who believes in help
ing the other fellow's game as
well as his own.— : The Chronicle-
