President Harding's Leadership.
A sentence from a Washington dispatch, re
porting the proceedings in the senate on Tues
day, defervet to be carefully studied. It reads:
It also was said by White House official that
Mr. Harding felt he alone was responsible for
the conduct of an efficient administration and
that he proposed to exercise the presidential
appointive power in a manner that accorded
with his own judgment.
Along with this sentence should go the re
peated assertions from democratic sources that
Mr. Harding has "lost control" of congress, that
his leadership has fallen down, and that he has
allowed the affairs of the country to drift into
chaos because of his lack of firmness and his
vacillating policy. It is not easy to reconcile such
statements with the clamor that is now being
raised that the president is "inhuman" in his en
deavors to secure efficient government by en
forcement of the budget system, economy and
other means.
Mr. Harding has not been a leader after the
manner of Woodrow Wilson, who assumed the
pedagogic attitude immediately, and put con
gress in the class room on the day of his in
auguration. Our republican president during his
campaign, in his inaugural, and on other oc
casions, pledged himself to restore to congress
its constitutional functions. He has not dictated
nor threatened; he has not juggled patronage to
secure votes. Have Ncbraskans forgotten how
republican appointees held over, some for three
years after their terms had expired, while the
president balanced the plums between his secre
tary of state and the senior senator from Ne
braska? Mr. Harding is not a leader in that
sense, and it is well for the nation he is not.
The bonus bill well illustrates his attitude.
He resolutely withheld from interfering with
the power and duty of congress, allowing the
representatives to frame the measure, which was
finally passed with the approval of the demo
crats, one of the; most inspiring exhibitions of
representative government in action the world
has seen since 1912. Not an act of congress is
being directed from the White House, nor is it
at all likely that the uproar of disappointed demo
crats will deter the executive from the fearless,
impartial discharge of his duty.
The nation is to be congratulated that it has
a leader in the White House, not a party boss;
a constitutional executive, and not a dictator,
sending orders across the town to the Capitol, to
be carried out by a rubber-stamp congress.
Democratic politicians may pretend to discern
danger in this, but if they look close enough
they will discover that the only thing in peril is
their hope of recovering control of the govern
ment at the 1923 election.
Nebraska's Approaching Campaign.
The esteemed Nebraska State Journal,
luxuriating in the peace that pervades its sur
roundings, complacently . announces that the
coming campaign in Nebraska will be a placid
one. It sees' no great outstanding issue over
which men will get excited, no reason to stir the
passions such as have disturbed us in the past.
Only the desire to forward once more the cause
of good government will draw voters to the polls,
and these are urged to ponder deeply, consider
carefully and act with discrimination in selecting
the individuals who are to bless the state for at
least two years. Nothing partisan should sway
the calm judgment of any voter, to the end that
once at least Nebraska will have men in office
who have been chosen for their fitness and on
their merits, and noi because of party labels.
Amen I
However, it will be a shame to awaken our
contemporary until after the polls have been
closed and the count commenced. Such a dream
should not be disturbed. What, however, is to
become of the prospectus now presented, that of
having at least three full tickets in the field, each
supported by an ardent group of energetic spell
binders, who will work with fervid enthusiasm
to achieve the old-time effect of arousing the
public. No great issue, you say? If that be true,
why did some good men and women find it neces
sary to form a new party, in order that they may
get a hearing for their cause? 'Or why is it that
other parties are busy preparing for the pre
liminary contest, which will be as warm in some
regards as ever was watched, and which is but a
curtain raiser to the main event?
Nebraska might enjoy a placid year in
politics, but it will not be this year of. grace.
Maybe in 1923, when there is no election, the
campaign will be tame enough, but the outlook
this season is for a real lively spell of old-fashioned
politics in Nebraska.
From the Middle West to the Sea.
It is not the farmers alone who will be bene
fited by the development of inland waterways
such as the St. Lawrence project Manufactur
ing industry has pushed westward until nearly
40 per cent of the factory articles exported
from America originate this side of Pittsburgh,
east of the Rocky mountains and north of the
Arkansas-Tennessee line.
The producers of most other nations are
much nearer ocean outlets, and consequently
enjoy an advantage in world trade. Whereas the
maximum rail haul in England is about 100
miles sad that of western Europe cot more.
thin 500 miles, from Pittsburgh to tf coatt
is 44$ mites, while the land barrier for next
c( the midland, region i measured by th 1,000
"Accelerated development and u of inland
water ays now is the indispensable economic
pulmotor for resuscitating our Inland export
ers," Dr. Julius Klein, director of the bureau
of foreign and domestic commerce, recently At
dared before the Rivers and Harbors congress.
The Importance of tin's to the farmers was
pointed out when he said that approximately 25
per cent of our total wheat production, nearly
$0 per cent of our rye and more than half our
lard ind pork production is exported, with a
land haul of at lent 1,000 miles.
New York state is making good use of its
barge canal. The government's Mississippi river
barge tine is giving export rates 20 per cent un
der the all-rail rates to the gulf. The coal and
steel regions of Alabama are cheaply served by
tnother government line down the Black War
rior river. With the development of a new
system of retards, something may yet be done
to make the Missouri river navigable. And the
Great Lakes waterway, which would open the
harbors of Chicago and Duluth to ocean freight'
ers, would be greatest of all.
Let Nebraska Amuse Itself.
Congratulations to the citizens of. Aurora,
who have just voted to bar traveling street car
rivals. The.e tawdry exhibitions sptread disease,
vice and crintc along their trail, in addition to car-
lying away money that might betttr be kept in
the community for providing more, rational forms
tf recreation.
Nebraska towns will be wise if they set about
supplying their own amusement program. How
this will be done is up to each community. In
recent elections some indorsed Sunday baseball
while others banned it, and the problem of Sun
day shows also has been answered in both ways.
The question of weekday recreation is, however,
the main one.
Few localities have enough freaks to put on
their own street carnival, that is true. Nature
has not provided enough midget families, bearded
women, living skeletons and snake charmers to
supply each place. It is to be questioned, how
ever, if a better time all around is not to be had
by encouraging local musical and dramatic talent.
A home grown pageant picturizing, to use a
modern phrase, thcwotiders and beauties of the
prairies, recalling the life of the pioneers and
pointing the possibilities of the future will do
more for any town than would an assemblage of
cheap sideshows.
People should learn to play. It is to be re
gretted that the middle west has not developed
its habits of recreation. The defeat in Fremont,
of a public project for a swimming pool is re
grettable from this standpoint, however praise
worthy from the standpoint of avoiding a bond
Wholesome sport and honest entertainment,
given a fair field, will outstrip the degrading
diversions, for the taste of the middle west is
fundamentally sound.
Corn Eating In Europe.
Of importance to the entire corn belt is the
study of corn marketing possibilities in Europe
that is being made by an American trade com
missioner,, J. A. Le Gere. He finds that corn is
used in many foreign lands, both in baking and
brewing, but that in France and Belgium Argen
tine corn is preferred to American. The claim
is made abroad that the South American corn is
smaller and better adapted for poultry feed, and
that it is sweeter, besides containing less mois
ture, enabling it better to stand transportation
and storage. . '
Some cities and even some countries have
regulations restricting uses of corn products, but
wherever this is not the case bakers and brewers
using corn flour or corn grits are successful.
France used much corn flour during the war,
but a year or so ago use of wheat substitutes
ceased. The excessive use of substitutes in in
vaded Belgium also has caused a reaction toward
wheat. Some bakers, however, now are inter
ested in the use of corn tlour, which is, given the
same food value as wheat flour but costs only
two-thirds as much.
Corn meal sent there during the war was
generally of the undegerminated kind which can
not be kept long without spoiling. The investi
gator urges that persistent advertising be used
to push the use of corn meal made by the modern
process which removes the germ and makes the
product keep as well as wheat flour. Persistent
educational , propaganda, supplemented by
demonstrations, is recommended to remove
prejudice and introduce the higher grades of corn
products. '
The American government does well to seek
to broaden the market for our corn growers. Pos
sibly new varieties might be developed to meet
the foreign demand and compete with Argentina.
A duty also rests upon the manufacturers to
maintain the quality of their export products. It
is a fine- thing to have these facts, and more are
It's a little belated, but figures on the income
tax returns for 1919 are now announced. The
total net income reported exceeded that of the
previous year by $3,934,000,000 and the number
of returns increased 907,000. The proportion
filing returns was 5.03 per cent. The per capita
r.et income reported was $187.32, and the per
capita tax $11.98. When the figures for 1921
are made public, which may be expected in two
or three years, some interesting comparisons can
be made. Why are governments' so slow?

Is There Immortality?
FitW there is immortality, or there is not.
We know, at any rate, that this body and mind
can be cast into hell. Yet if, by following after
one we desire, one in either world, acting as. if
immortality were true, we gain more and more
abundant life, we can not lose by the proceed
ing even if we are snuffed out at death. On the
other hand, if there is a life beyond, we shall not
arrive there in a state of separation from our
friend, to remain in that state until our unbelief
can be overcome; since we shall have discovered
here that separation is not a spacial affair, that
unbelief alone separates. If our experiment works
we shall achieve in this world much of the value
of our friend. ...
If we sow sparingly we shall reap sparingly.
If we give all we shall do more than regain our
friend as he was on earth. The sense of com
munion, companionship, guidance, inspiration
will deepen at moments when wills are favorable,
and he can speak to us as if he were with us in
the flesh. And we shall develop faculties of hear
ing and seeing into that larger environment
which hitherto we. had not evolved. We shall
no longer understand and think as a child, and
speak as a child; the struggles, when we looked
through a glass, darkly, will be resolved. We
shall see face to face, and we shall know, even as
also we are known. Winston Churchill in the
April Yale Review.

ress?d in letters recommending
ydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound. These women know what they

medicinal roots and herbs, and without
drugs, to relieve the sickness women
so often have, which is indicated by
backache, weakifeelings, nervousness,
and no ambition to get anything done
or to go anywhere. It has helped
many women., Why not try it?
