THE MAN YOU ARB
H ian*t the man that you might have been
Mad the chance been yours again,
Nor the prise you wanted but didn’t win
That weighs in the measure of men.
No futile *if” or poltroon “because”
Can rowel your stock to par.
The worid cares naught for what never was—
It judges by what you are.
It isn’t the man that you hope to be,
If fortune and fate are kind,
That the chill, keen eyes of the world will see
In weighing your will and minA
The years ahead are a chartless sea,
And to-morrow’s a world away;
It Lin’t the man that you’d like to be,
But the man that you are to-day.
There’s little worth in the phantom praise
Of a time that may never dawn,
And less in a vain regret for days
And deeds long buried and gone.
There’s little time on this busy earth
To argue the why and how.
The game is yours if you prove your worth.
And prove it here and now!

Women In Public Life
The conviction of Miss Beatrice Cobb
that women have no right to political of
fice other than on the basis of ability is
a most sensible attitude. For a short time
after w'omen were granted the suffrage
there was some tendency to give office
to a few women for sentimental reasons,
but in recent times the women who .have
been elevated to public office are those
who have shown themselves capable of
holding down the job.
It is interesting to note a list of the
women who are holding high positions.
Hattie W. Caraway of Arkansas is the
only woman member of the Se.iate. There
are seven women members of the House of
Representatives: Isabella Greenw’ay, Dem
ocrat, of Arizona: Florence P. Kahn, Re
publican, 0 f California; Virginia E,
Jencks, Democrat, of Indiana; Kathryn 0.
McCarthy, Democrat, of Kansas: Edith
N. Rogers, Republican, of Massachusetts;
Mary T. Norton, Democrat, of New Jer
sey, and Marian Clarke, Republican, of
New York. Other women holding high
positions in the government are; Frances
Perkins, (Mrs. Paul Wilson), New York,
secretary of labor; Ruth Bryan Owens,
’ Florida, minister to Denmark, and Nellie
T. Ross, Wyoming, director of the mint.
No candidate for the legislature who
makes either a blanket or specific pledge
to reduce taxes without offering a sub-
^itute plan to raise money for carrying
on the business of the state government is
entitled to any special consideration of the
votera of either party.
It is always popular to be in favor of
economy. It is easy to be “agin” the sales
“agin” the high cost of automobile
licenses plates, “agin” just anything, but
it is more difficult to say just where one
proposes to find the money to take the
]^a% of revenue that has been eliminated.
Mmbers of th legislature should be
aUe to study the situation as it appears

equitable system of taxation. There will
always be differences of opinion as to,
whttt constitutes an equitable system. It

A year ago thousands of private bosi-.

Industry hadn’t seen fit to clean ite own

paying exhorbitant salaries to those high

were still cutting each other’s throats.
Men were starving for lack of employ
ment and the employed were getting
scarcely enough wages to provide the bare
necessities of life.
Industry must learn, either through its
own iniatitive or through government
interference, that it must operate for the
common good and not for entirely selfish
reasons. The big business man of the fu
ture must be an executive who sees his
enteiprise serving the laborer and in
vestor alike, rather than a man who looks
only toward the large salary he is to re
ceive. This view is based upon the present
All of the restrictions placed on busi

industry had its chance and revealed its
weakness in organizing to prevent cut

Sunday School Lesson
By REV. CHARLES E. DUNN
THE CHILD AND THE KINGDOM
Lesson for April 8th. Matt. 18:1-14; 19:13-15.
Golden Text: Matthew 19:14.
Why did Jesus insist that the kingdom of
heaven is composed of those who manifest a
child-lik“ spirit? First of all, the child is the in
carnation of reverence. The child’s -eyes are full
of wonder. In Goethe’s great masterpiece. “Wil
helm M'^ister’s Travels,” the chief of three wise
men says to Wilhelm, “There is one thing which
no child brings into the world with him, and
without which all other things are of no use.”
"And what is that?” asks iVilhelra. “It is Rev
erence!” answers the chief.
Now reverence means respect. As Carlyle says,
it involves "honour done to those who are great
er and better than ourselves.” The child instinct
ively manifests such deference. And reverence
also means the hush of the human spirit in the
presence of the Eternal. It is. to quote again
from Carlyl**, “the soul of all religion that has
ever been among men, or ever will be.” Here
again the child is our best exemplar. God is. very
real to him.
Getting Grange Convention

Booeevelt Not Worried
The best evidence that Presi
dent Roosevelt Is not worrying
about plans to put the skids und
er him and replace him with a
real dictator is that he went on a
week’s fishing trip while the sub
ject was a red-hot topic of dis
cussion. William Wirt, the super
intendent of schools of Gary, In
diana. wrote a letter to James
Rand. Jr., big industrialist and
head of the Committee for the
Nation, and Rand read it before
a committee of Congress. Profes
sor Wirt—who is not given to
loose talk—wrote to his friend
Rand that several of the young
men of the “brain trust” had told
him that their effort was to so
influence affairs in Washington
that there could be no real recov
ery. This would bring about such
a condition of revolt, they
thought, that the people would
rise and follow a new communist
leader and establish a Russian
system in America. The Presi
dent, they told Mr. Wirt, was in
the middle of a powerful current
and could not get to either shore.
He was merely Kerensky of the
revolution; the veal Lenin would

The New Labor Lineup
"The outstanding noveUy about
the labor situation In the anto-
mobile and other industries, is
not that there should be dis
agreement about the method of
carrying out the law regarding
collective bargaining, but that
the Federation of Labor should
have accepted the old 1. W. W.
idea of “vertical” unions, taking
In everybody employed In a given
industry, instead of the old
"craft” unions on which the Fed
eration .has been based.
The' “one big union” idea ie
what the "Wobblies” were fight
ing for, .before the war, while
the Federation Insisted that
there should be as many unions
as there were trades; if a shop
employed blacksmiths, plumbers,
carpenters, steamfitters and
bricklayers, then there should be
a separate union for each trade.
Now they are trying to organize
all automobile workers in a sin
gle un;on, and so on. Some ob
servers see the seeds of Com
munism in that, since that is the
way the Russian workers were
organized for their revolution.
Agrlculfore and Business
Evidence increases of dissatis

results of the Agricultural Ad-
ijiistment Administration thus

that they have discovered that it
is not high treason to criticize.
One result of that Is the plan
of providing capital funds out of
credits that are under Federal
control. The outlook now Is that
these will not be direct Govern
ment loans to industry, but loans
by the Federal Reserve Banks,
which will be authorized to in
vest their surpluses in long-term
