The Normal School Jrllxup. Tho avowed purpose of placing the control of Nebraska's normal schools' In tho bands. ' df iho . govorrior-ap-polntcd board waa to keep theso' edu cational Institutions out ot politics. Instead of accomplishing that object, howovcr, tho result has been to keep thorn almost continuously In tho tur moirof politics or embroiled in per sonal contention. It seems .to, us-tho reason Is not hard to find, being tho porslstent loading down of tho board with pro fessional politicians and pcrsons.wlth pets to promote or grievances to pur buo. It Is sometimes urged that we get men of higher caliber In such places by appointment than we do by election, but wo regret to hnvo to say that our experience with tho state educational board constituted by ap pointment by tho governor docs not bear out that view, compared, for ex ample with the elective regents In charge of tho stato university. llnflnr- nmh.irlf H cn nxtenslrfllv In normal tralnlrig-w'e do not Know ot another stato of our population that maintains ns many normal schools as Nebraska does now It behooves uu to mako suro they nro run on an economic nnd businesslike basin,, ThU can bo brought about only by having mon In charge not pnly equal to tho task, but oilso unselfishly animated by a mind slnglo to tholr best inter ests. Elections' in' Mexico. How can Mexico holdan election whoso outcomo will bo rocognlzcd and accepted by oven a niajority of its people? Tho answer to that quoatlon might help present condi tions very much. It is doubtful It" sucti an election was over held In Mexico. It cortalnly is not possible now with tho land Btlll Vent wltlr wnr and, ono man, having' dissolved the legislature In defianco of tho constitution, exorcising tho powers of a, dictator. It, evidently was not posBlblo oven under tho more fnv orablh conditions surrounding, tho election of Madaro,' when with a' pretense of pcaco over tho country, out ot n total population of 15,000, 000, less than 10,000 votes were polled all told. Yet that waa hailed na a "popular election," In contrust to those gouo bofore, and perhaps In that roapoct It approached popu larity, t)Ut such results are not very significant of representative gov ernment. Tho ratio in tho llnitod States is about ono vote to six parsons of the population, and according to this ratio in Mexico the total voto would be more than 2,000,000, in stead ot lee than 10,000. While it' la neither fall nor reasonable to sup pose so large a ratio there as here, Mexico ought to poll at least one-tenth, as many votes, or not less than 200,000. With tho Mexican election Bet for Octobor 26, such, a cursory glance at conditions might serve to suggest something ot . tho problem, confronting civilization In our -neighboring ropubllc, and give us an idea of Just how far to go In accoptlng high-flown theories of how readily tho whole Mexlcon situ ation is going to bo worked out.' Commercializing Festivals. Quotations on turkeys at this sea son reminds us of tlio tendency to commorclalUo our feast days. Thanksgiving, whoso simply origin Is air but lost in the ostentation ot its modern celebration, 1b used aa a lover to pry up the prices ot fowls and Ilka table delicacies, bo much so us to nuke the turkey, linked traditionally with Its observance, prohibitive to most successors of the early pilgrims. So, alee and upon an even mora elaborate scale Is this .true ot Christ mas and Easter, to the religious the most sacred of our holidays. Tho bonodlctlonpf Christmas giving may become 'the burden ot oppression, robbing the day of much of the Joy bora of this spirit of giving. Easter, with Jts glorleB of new life, ot vic tory and triumph, conspires to put fictitious prices on hata.and gowns, vain pride Into gentle fomlnlnlty. and querulous moods into masculine minds, puzzled. to know where tho monoy is coming from. Then for the Fourth of July, to such extravagant lengths have we gone, to the oxtent ot Imperiling life with our reckless fireworks, as finally to arouse, a national appre hension sufficiently earnest to sound the alarm and call a halt. As the lesson of patriotism Buffers under the modern conception of the Fourth, ot July, so also doubtless does the real meaning of tho oher festivals go misapprehended. Yet, we must have our turkeys, Christmas gifts, Easter hat and gowns. "Vanity ot vanities, all Is vanity.' No, there la grim business In it, too. Not much Interest Is manifested in the fast approaching presidential election In Mexico. Those Mexicans have yet to learn how to work up a pitch of excitement by preliminary spectacular conventions, followed by campaigns on behalf of the opposing candidates, timed to reach a climax at a psychological moment. Tho president and secretary of state aro annoyed because the British minister to Mexico presented hU credentials the day after Huerta as sumed his dictatorship.

Ho was convicted by the court .of Impeachment not for what he had refused to do, but for what ho had done. It Is a Just verdict. Philadelphia Bulletin: Public opinion will lack little of unanlrgUy In its ap proval of the verdict as Just. There will bo a little sympathy for Sulzer; there will bo much denunciation ot Tammany; but the removal of such a man frtfrn high office Is for tho good of the public not only ot his state but of the entire nation.

OMAHA, Oct 21,-To the Editor of Tho Bee: On Sunday evening, October 19. the Jewish Young Pebple's society of Omaha met In the vestry rooms of Temple Israel. It was moved by Jeronie Heyn, and unanimously carried, that a letter of appreciation be sent to The Bc for Its noble appeal to the public for Interest and sympathy Inregard to tho Russian blood accusation through an editorial which recently appeared tn the publication. ERNA L. HADRA, Secretary, Worries nt a Wife. SARGENT, Neb., Ocli 20.-To the Editor of Tlie Bco:,I read with Interest "Ills Mother," by Virginia Terhune Van, Der Water on your home magazine page. No doubt such sad cases as she refers to tin John's and' Tom's family exist, but is It not the exception Instead of the rule as she Implies? My observation has been that men are 'moro earlly weaned from "home t and mother" than are their sisters. Many: a wife deplores tho thoughtlessness her husband shows his mother and father, too, for I believe fathers feel neglect, as well as mothers. How many times have I heard Ed's wlfo ask him to write his parents and not put it off another day, then perhaps write them in good long letter herself and tell them ail about Ed and his girls and mall It secretly lest Ed should think wife's letter released him from writing? Perhaps Virginia knew this same mother and felt sure wlfey was plotting to prevent Ed writing home often. Then I recall BUI, who lived on a farm near the town where his old father lived. Now farmer Bill went to town perhaps three or four times a week and nearly always saw his father on the street. By way of suggestion his wlfo often asked htm It he drove up to tho house today to see mother. The answer was almost Invariably "no," Occasionally Bill suggested going down home to spend the. day Sunday. Greet ings and short chat, then Bill read county paper while wife assisted mother about getting dinner. By the time all was ready Bill must be roused from his nap on the sofa. Dinner over the women visit while dishwashing. Bill leisurely wal)$a out of the back door toward the barn and nothing more Is seen of him until he comes In the front door and remarks It la about chore tlmd and sits with his hat on while wife donj her wraps, ' This Is what the man calls a visit Mother Is glad he 'seemed tp enjoy the good'dlnner she was so' careful to prepare to his liking. Bhe learned from wife about her boy's .lame back, his crop pros pects, amount of his .tax receipts, etc Virginia says "A son's a son till he gets htm a wife." I would add,- "He then often shifts his filial duties to wife's ahoulders." ESTHER a C.
