FOR DEFENSE (By The Federated Press) New York. — "So long as they (the great powers) openly or secretly fight What Four Words Did DOWN IN GEORGIA there is a man of great talent. He is a lecturer; has been lecturing for many years and had a burning desire to write. He knew that he could talk, but was doubtful of his ability to write. He had a message, he knew, but almost resigned himself to a small audience of a few hundred, until— One day he chanced to get hold of a copy of Napoleon Hill's Magazine and sprinkled through it were the words, "You Can Do It." He read it from cover to cover. He became inspired as he read, and the page-breakers, "You Can Do It" made him halt as he scan ned the pages. "Do what," he asked himself. The answer came back positively, "Why, you can write the message and Nepo leon Hill's Magazine wilj carry it for you." He composed a splendid letter and sent it off to Napoleon Hill. It proved that this gentleman had intimately known the editor ten years ago, when each dropped from the ken of the oth er as if the earth had covered them. The letter was published. It looked good to him and he said: "I can write; this letter is good. I'll try again." He did, and the result was a short true story of how a boy had made good when the responsibility of caring for a widowed mother and sister was thrown upon him by the accidental death of the father. The thing that made the boy prove a man and shoulder loads, was a slo gan used by this magazine, "It pays to render more and better service than you are paid for." This delightful story will be in the issue of Napoleon Hill's Magazine for June. It will help others because it is a true story. The thought comes to us that if the gentleman, who is grooming himself to become a great writer, received his in spiration through the pages of this mag azine, there must be others who like wise should be uplifted, and will be, if they read the pages with any degree of care. The June issue will carry the story of a remarkable man by the name of Nat I. Brown, who has had a wonder ful experience in the moving picture world.

Woman's Problem and Integral Co-operation Take any large city at quitting time | in the evening, and its streets travers és by trolley lines are perfectly swarm, ing with women, young and old. From girls in their teens up to matronly look ing, gray-haifed women. One wonders where all these women come from, what they are engaged in and what their fu ture is to be. The olden time with its individual home, and the wife and mo ther as a home-maker is rapidly getting to be a thing of the past. No longer are th e earnings of a workingman suf ficient for the support of a family, and when he does marry his wife is com pelled to eke out his scant earnings by going to work or keeping at work as she did before. And many millions of women in ev ery so-called civilized land are con demned to lifelong maidenhood be cause of the millions of young men in th e prime of life slain in the fratricidal world war to make the world a dead cinch for plutocracy. The world is changing and we have to change with the transformation go ing on in our environment or suffer the consequences. Th e mental hori zon of too many women is circumscrib ed to such narrow limits that they fail to take cognizance of these irrefrag able conditions and they make demands upon their husbands, if married, or up on relatives or business associates that it is impossible to comply with. At present the people in America are involved in a transition period. No one is in a position to foretell what the morrow may bring forth because of the willful perversity of dominating inter ests and the woeful ignorance of the great mass of the people. We who hav e gathered from far and near here at Newllano came to this Colony because of the co-operative principle on which it is founded. We came here that we might own our jobs, secure the fruits of our labor and to acquire a safe tenure on our future maintenance. Co-operation means to do everything together whereby the greatest products or results can be achieved with the minimum of labor. Co-operation not only in the workshops and on the farm but also in housekeep ing. The aim of the Colony manage ment is to have everything possible done on a large scale by united ef fort, instead of throwing it upon the individual. Two eatshops have been ^ established, one at the hotel and the other at the Cafeteria, so that th e -col onists can have their choice, and it is the intention to provide the greatest variety of food so that every special diet requirement can be provided for. The laundry is established to do the washing for all the colonists, the sewing dept., to sew for everybody. In fact, the object is to practically do away with all private housework, so that there is no necessity or excuse for inlividual housekeeping. Of course, at present the houses are somewhat scat tered and to make beds and sweep the rooms is left to the families and single persons; but bachelors, husbands, and wives, and children ought to be able to do that little amount of work to gether after their eight hours stint of work for the Colony has been done. Economic determinism is in many respects a very ambiguous expression. Of course, it is true everyone is econ omically determined ; but if it were the only impulse that dominates humanity, it would not carry us very far. Peo ple who have no other object in life except to make their own support a certainty never have done anything that would hazard their chances for their bread and butter. Some other emotion certainly inspires and sustains such men as Eugene Debs, Job Harriman and countless others too numerous to mention, when they devote their whole life to efforts to enlighten their fellow men to a better way of carrying on the ! productive and distributive activities of the land. "No one can solve the problems of I life until he knows himself," says Dr. E. J. S<4iellhous; "for in him, and no where else, are the factors of that so lution. Mankind has ever been look ing for the factor of the solution of life's problems outsid e of man. They have not been found, because they are in th e individual—a force destined to advance him beyond the conception of mortals. Whenever we look within and study and comprehend the force within us, we will be able, when it is understood, to advanc e in our moral and spiritual well-being; and when we realize • the cause of human conflicts, of antagonistic interests, of struggles for individual supremacy, resulting in evils from which mankind suffer, then and then only will we change the base of our operations; for in us is the per sistent and irrepressible desire to live, to enjoy, to be happy; and when we clearly comprehend the fact that our happiness depends on the supremacy of the moral and spiritual forces, that consideration will afford the all-suffi cient incentive to move in that direc tion." It was the moral and spiritual in Je sus of Nazareth that moved him to tell bis disciples, "Bear ye one another's burdens!" Co-operate together, help each other, take an interest and be concerned with on e another's well-be ing; provide for each other's comfort and happiness. If people who profess to be followers of the carpenter of Naz areth were sincere in their statertients there would be no billionaire and no pauper among them. Efficient, inte gral co-operation is the very essence of the good news, the gospel of Jesus, and he asserted that love manifested in good deeds to our fellow men was the only proof of lov e of God. Woman's- problem seemed to be the chief theme at the last psychological meeting, June 22 at Newllano Colony. Women appear to be too shy to get on the floor and express themselves freely on topics being discussed. It may be necessary to organize a special meeting for them, where they can talk to their hearts' content. The Colony is the home of all the men, women and children here, and we want them to realize that fact and to make it as attractive and pleasant a home as it is humanly possible to make it. The Colony is and will be what we make it. We can get out of it only what we put into it. Our labor, our good will, our pleasant word and sincere regard for each other's well being will all add to make the Colony a home par excellence. WE CAN DO IT! WISE WORKING GUYS ELECT THEIR ENEMIES (By The Federated Press) Seattle. — Although the labor move ment of the city in th e recent school board election threw its support behind one candidate, the building trades coun cil decided to support another nominee. Their choice, with the aid of other elements, won on the platform of no wage cuts. Three weeks after h e took office, the building trades choice cut teachers' wages $150 with a cut in janitors' wages expected next. The public is just Ruskin; a great baby.

PUSSYFOOT GOMPERS IS QUEERING POLITICALS' RELEASE (By The federated Press) Washington. — A protest against the report of the executive council of the A, F. of L. on political prisoners has been made in a letter addressed to Samuel Gompers at Cincinnati by th e American Civil Liberties union. "The executive council is in error," the letter says, "in stating that 'nearly all of the political prisoners have been re leased' when as a matter of fact there are still 96 in prison, all convicted in free' speech cases during the war." Protest is made against discontinu ing the A. F. of L.'s work for amnesty last January, on the ground that "a full measure of success has been achieved. Attention is called to the fact that thfe president on last Christ mas released only 19 prisoners, includ ing Eugene V. Debs, leaving 123 pris oners still in "at the time. Exception is taken in the letter to the executive' council's charge that "the few remaining in prison would have been released had not their false friends made earlier action by the government difficult." It is well known in Wash ington, the Civil Liberties union states, that the opposition of the American Le gion to Debs' release made further ac tion politically unwise in the eyes of the administration.
