G. W. Dickinson Sees Need of
Constructive Work For
All Youngsters.
The true mlsBlon of the Michigan
State Fair, ae seen by George W.
Dickinson, secretary and manager of
tho exposition for
the past decade, Is
one of educating
tho rising genera
tion of formers In
the correct atmos
phere. So far, the Michi
gan State Fair has
been A splendid
force In tho llvos
of boys and girls
on tho farms in
this state. This
has been Indicated
Geo. W. Dickinson jn the enthusiasm
with which the youngsters have par
ticipated in the competition to win a
placo In tho DoyB State Fair School.
Speaking before the farmers' club
division of the board of commerce
ftt Detroit, recently. Mr. Dickinson
Outlined the course in manual train

who are brought to the fair.
"I believe the Michigan State Fair

to concentrate on making tho educa

ever hail been before.

Won't say how many, because the
ladles wouldn't be pleased, a doz
en of Yale's bright and popular
young ladies organized a social
club, calling it the Single Dozen.
Such good times as were had
at the regular gatherings, not one
wanting to miss a single meeting
of the Single Dozen Club. But as
time went on one took unto her
self a life-partner and thereafter
could not really be called single,
and then another dropped out, so
occasionally new members were
taken In until the marriage vows
disrupted the whole club and for
as many as fifteen years no gath
ering has been held.
The idea of a re-union was con
ceived in the minds of Mrs. Dolph
Andreac and Mrs. Clyde Adams
and the invitations to t.ne former
members received instant and al
most unanimous approval and con
sent. The place was set for the
summer home of Mrs. Andreao at
Cedarwood and the time from
Friday, July 2Sth to Sundav.
The husbands were also invit
ed and were there to a man, en
joying the outing and old-time as
sociations as greatly as their
A wonderfully appetizing chick
en dinner on Friday night started
the ball rolling, and from then on
something was doing the whole
time. Beach parties, .weenie
roasts, bon fires, boating, fishing
and bathing, to say nothing of
the grand talks of girlhood days
and Single Dozen pranks and par
ties. It was too short a time to
crowd in all one wanted to say, to
hear and to do, but parting time
came at the end of ideal weather
and perfect associations.
Out of the original twelve,
eight were present on the memor
able occasion, three were una"ble
to come, and one has passed to
another world.
Those who attended the week
end house party re-union were Mr.
and Mrs. Chas. Langworthy, Ann
Arbor; Hattie Karn, Fort Wayne,
Ind.; Mr. and Mrs. Frank Kuhn,
Detroit; Mr. and Mrs. Clyde Ad

When you work, work. Put the
whole mind and heart in it. Know
nothing else. Do everything the
very best. Distance everybody
about you. This will not be hard
for the other fellows are not try
ing much. Master details and dif
ficulties. Be always ready for the
next step tip. If a bookkeeper be
an expert. If a machinist, know
more than the boss. If an office
man surprise the employer by
model work. If in school go to the
head and stay there. All this is
easy when the habit of conquer
ing takes possession. Be yourself
the leader, not the trailer. Set the
standard as conscience dictates.
Then you will mould instead of
being moulded.

John A. Doelle, state commis
sioner of agriculture, speaking
before the delegates to the 48th
annual meeting of the Michigan
Pioneer and Historical Society at
Lansing, urged further develop
ment, of Michigan's agricultural
resources by co-operation.
He asked the visitors at the
meeting to spread the story of
the farming advantages of this
state. He also piophesied a turn
ing point that will halt the flood
of farmers' sons and daughters
to the cities and send them, and
others with them, back to the soil.
"There will be a general going
back to the farms of boys and
girls who were born in the coun
try," he said. "With this move
ment there will go ideas that will
improve the social and economi
cal life in the rural districts.
Michigan has many resources,
and development of them will
make life more worth living.'
Commissioner Doelle declared
that although Michigan i3 only a
partially develoned state, agricul
turally, it stands well up as a
fruit, poultry and dairy state. He
briefly sketched the history of
agricultural development in Mich
igan and raced the shifts in the
balance of population that make
him believe the time is coming
when more than 50 per cent of the
state's population will live on

was marred by the possibly fatal
accident of John Daugherty of the

barrow penetrated his abdomen.
The wheel of the barrow ran into
an obstacle while Daugherty was

Pocketbook and Humanity

There is no question seemingly
but that the next legislature will
es'ablish capital punishment in
Michigan in an effort to curtail
the henious crimes of the past few
years. Governor Grofesbeck U
favorable to this legislation under
certain conditions and other
state leaders arc in favor of such
a statute. Thero are far too many
murders in this Btate and capital
punishment might have a tenden
cy to stop such crimes as the mur
der of the welfare workers in
Jackson last week, or the warden
of Marquette prison. It is worth
a trial at least, for in reality it is
almost impossible to differentiate
between capital punishment and
a living death of life imprison-1
ment in one of Michigan's penal
institutions where the culprit ad
mits the crime.
