IP SCHOOLMASTERS' CLUBWASJN POLITICS Organization Might Be Made Very Efficient in Any Sort of Campaign. MEMBERSHIP WELL LOCxg&I) Strategic Positions Occupied by the Society Admirable SOME INTERESTING RECORDS Coinoidenoes that Show What Might Possibly Happen. MEMBER ALWAYS . SUCCEEDS Every Time One Runs for Office the Outsider is Left Far Behind In tlir Count vof Votes. (From a Staff Correspondent) LINCOLN, Neb., Oct. 2.-Speclal. Tho Schoolmasters' Club of Nebraska is not In politics, If lamp post Interviews with "prominent members" of tho club living In Lincoln as set forth In a Lin coln paper Is to bo believed, but the whole agitation over the removal of Dr. Thomas from the Kearney normal Is due to the "agitation of certain Omaha papers, who aro prone to look Upon the Schoolmastors' club as a sort of Lincoln organization." , In an endeavor to show that the t (Schoolmasters' olub Is not a Lincoln or ganization and that It Is not In politics Lincoln members of the club are quoted as saying that because so many of the club live In Lincoln is because of 'the geographical situation and the state university. How They Arc Located, Tho records of tho Schoolmasters' olub show that of the 100 members, tnirty-nve live In the capital city and Its suburbs. The' other members aro scattered over the state, and so scattered that were It tho days of the railroads In politics? and the old convention system It would look suspiciously suspicious. Strangely, the Schoolmasters' club has representatives in all of the thickly set tled counties and most of tho larger towns. Thoy aro so situated that if the club wanlW to cut a figure In politics it could do so very successfully because of the geographical location of Its mem bership. Is there any political organiza tion of tho state or any politician who would not be In his political glory If he had a working representative in the fol lowing counties, which have all the way from one to four representatives of the Schoolmasters' cluti: Adams, Box Butte, Butlor, Buffalo, Burt. cass. coirax, ciay. custer. Dodge. Douglas, Dawes, plxonOage, Hall, Ham. oils, rtemana, uioe, l iaiie, .rneips; una Willow, Rlctaardson, Satihder, Ssward, Ratine, Wanton, Washington, Wayne, York and with headquarters in Lancas ter couhty with a working force of thirty- five memoirs. Effects on Primary, in 1903, the first year that state of ficers were nominated at a primary, tho Schoolmasters' club was represented by four out of the five candidates for state superintendent. Orte republican outsldo of the club had the sand to buck up against ,tho stone wall and has not been heard from since. EL C. Bishop, a mem ber .of the club, 'landed the republican nomination and was elected. In his se lection of a deputy ho picked a member of tho club, or at least his name now appears on tho roster. In '1910, of the four candidates, Frank 8. Perduo was the only man who bucked against the line and he, too, went down to dofeat. This waa the year that the club 'got behind J. W. Crabtreo after he had boen deposed by the normal soliool board, and on a "sob" platform he wa elected and a member of the Bohool masters' club was kept as a deputy. In 1918 it was a direct fight between members of the Schoolmasters' club and the outsiders on the republican side, J. B, Delzell represented he club with G. W. Whltehorn opposing him. On the demo oratlp ticket E. E, Monroe tried conclu sions with two members of the club. It V, Clark and John Qpeedle. In each case the anti-club candidato was badly distanced, but somehow the successful candidate did not remember his .unsuccessful com petitor In the primary when he waa elected, and appoint him to a good office as had been done In former years, But he was not a member of the Schoolmas ters' club, and that might be the reason. Why it la Limited. A Lincoln member of the club says that one reason why the club Is limited to 100 members, Is because If it was "not so it would be too much like the State Teach er's' association. In other words, a club of 100 members can be more easily handled than one with an unlimited number and the-little club of the aelact could manipulate matters as they wanted It anyhow. To show how successfully the club has worked In the teaohers' or ganization, every president of that or ganization elected in the past halt a dozen years Is a memebr of the School masters' club, and stilt the club Is not In politics.

APPEAL TO EPISCOPAL BISHOPS Request IUnchra House of Deputies nnd President Baya "Why Don't They Leave Things AlnnnT" NEW YOniC, Oct 26.-The convention of the World's Woman's Christian Tarn perance union' adopted a resolution yes terday requesting the house of bishops of the Protestant Episcopal church to "consider the propriety" of using un fermented wine at tho communion In plaoe of fermented wine, "which contains tho narcotlo poleon alcohol." The resolution was a substitute for one originally offered setting forth that fer mented wine "could not truly represent ths blood of Christ" This phrase was objected to by EngUsh delegates, who argued that It would an tagonize th Church of England. The English delegates also objected to an amendment declaring that "Jesus., com manded unfermented wine In the holy communion." The resolution came too late to be given attention by the house of bishops beforo adjournment. The objections were voiced by Miss Agnes E. Stack, honorary secretary of the organization, who said that ths bishop of Lincoln told her the Church of England could not offer the sacra ment In unfermented wine and that the archbishop of Canterbury told her: "If you pass such a resolution I shall use my Influence to see that no member of ths Anglican church Joins our organi zation," The request of the Woman's Chrlstlsn Temperance union reached the Episcopal convention Informally two hours before the time set for adjournment. Rr. Dr. Alexander, chairman of the house of deputies, threw up his hands In a ges- turo of dismay when he was told of the request." "The good ladtfs might Juit as well not have Wasted their efforts," he ex claimed. "Why don't they leave these things aloneT Of course we shall not act on It It Is too late now.

A Question of, Intelligence There have boen a great many things nald and written about the comparative superiority ol masculine and feminine minds. This is u profound question on which we do not wish to take aides, but there la one point we would like to make and that Is that no mind, masculine or feminine, Is truly Intelligent that is not thoroughly up with the times. And what does being up with) the times imply? It Implies being conversant with all the various trendo of human thought and action; In ventions and discoveries, poli tical, religious and social movements, literary and artis tic productions and many others too numerous to mention. To these must be added one phase of human activity that is sometimes overlooked by thoughtless persons much to their own disadvantage, and that Is the wonderful manu facturing and commercial de velopment of the present day, The news of these fields of ac tivity Is found most concretely in the advertising columns of The Bee and other good news papers. No person can be really Intelligent today without keeping himself or herself In formed by diligent reading of newspaper advertisements. THROUGH V.
