few unemployed. We live in the best
town and the best county in the state

And still, we are not ready to admit
that all men are evil minded. Some
have no minds at all.
Enough money is spent in Califor

If this immigration stunt keeps up
much longer we Americans can just

The calamity howler who is deter

the bow-wows and that we are going
to have period of exceptionally
hard times needs to stop his growling
and look on the bright side. Finan
cial conditions look a lot better than
they did a few weeks ago and every
indication points to the fact that the
market for farm products is going to
strengthen during the next few
weeks. Staple farm products are now
telling for less than the cost of pro
duction and It is hard to realize how
A condition of this kind can continue
for long at a time.
Clovis merchants are planning a
busy period from now until Christmas
day. Shoppers should as far as pos
sible do their shopping In the fore
noon. This enables the clerks to
wait on the trade without the custo
mary rush and confusion always
found at holiday times.
The News honestly believes that
Clovis and Curry County folks are
better off than the people of any sec
tion of the United States. We have
raised good crops, and even though
the price Is low there is a feeling that
they will be better soon. We are for

All the dire prophecies as to what
would happen at the polling places if
women were allowed to vote have
failed to come to pass. The fact is,
that the women voted just as if they
had been at it all their lives. They
apparently made no more mistakes,
were no more embarrassed, than any
of the most hardened male voters.
Even in some of the most forbidden
districts in the city the casual and
matter of fact way in which women
came and voted and went away was
accepted as what was to havs been
expected. As to the courtesies of
the occasion as betwesn husband and
wife and friends and neighbors and
relatives which stepped over the
strict letter of the law, the good faith
of most was so manifest that the
justification was not questioned by
the greatest sticklers for official pro
cedure. The interest, the enthusiasm
incident to the first appearance of the
women at the polls, gave a special
xesth therefore, to an election, the re
sults of which so many had accepted
as a matter of course. It was easy
for the men, for the election officers
and for the women. And row that it
is all over, the only thing is for the
women to stick at it as constant and
persistent voters and see that the men
follow them in thus living up to their
privileges as eitisena.
It is to be no rash adventure by
some flier taking his life in his hands
for a dash to the pole. In fact there
is to be no pole hunting but rather an
exploration to determine the nature
and resources of unexplored regions.
With such an outfit it would seem
that the experiment is reasonably safe
as safety goes in Arctic work.
There will be means with which to
carry out rescue expeditions if any
flier is lost, and no flier is expected
to push on and on into unknown re
gions for a distance goal. That the
aeroplane is an ideal means for rapid
reconnaissance in unknown country
goes without saying and much is to
be expected of this British venture
into the far and frozen south.
The Idea that polar exploration can
be carried out in aeroplanes has been
under discussion ever since it became
clear that airships could be built to
eover long distances, but apparently
British explorers will be the first to
try the idea in a practical war. Com
mander John L. Cope, In charge of
the Antarctic expedition which hes
just left civilization for the south
ern seaa, is carrying with him a num
ber of aeroplanes which he expects
to employ in making an extensive sur
vey of the unexplored parts of the
Antarctic continent. The expedition
is proceeding in a ship of 7,000 tons
so that a vast supply of stores can be
carried and there are more than 200
men in the party.
