As someone wrote: "He did not know where he was going, he did not know where he was when he ar rived, and he did not know where U/, U/wJ kflfln u’lapn Vip onf Hark.” He believed that he had found the eastern coast of Asia. Instead, he had found a new world, undreamed of by all but a few adventurous dreamers like himself. To finance his voyage, Columbus appealed to the Queen, of Spain :n the name of her religion. Isablla was not interested in exploration, but she was interested in the salva tion of human souls. To spread the Gospel of Christ among the heathen she sold her jewels and aid ed Columbus to venture forth from Palos on his perilous quest. And the first act of the discoverer on landing was to raise the Cross upon the island sands and kneel with hi? whole company in prayer. The hordes of adventurers that followed Columbus to the Ness World thought more of gold anc silver than of religion. Yet, hcr< and there, as centuries went on, lit tle groups of men and women whos< first care was for their souls rachei than for material things, settled or the shores of the land Columbu had found. And it is from thos? little groups that our nation derives That, it seems to us,* is the im portant thing to remember on Oct ober 12, Columbus Day. It wa liberty which Woodrow Wilsoi termed a spiritual conception. Tha they found, also, material wealtl far beyond that of the peoples o any other land, was a pleasing bu accidental result of their migration This, it seems to us, is good tim to ponder whether we have so fa departed from the spirit of ou forebears that we are willing to sac rifice liberty for material wealth that we place economic security ahead of spiritual freedom. WHAT COUNTS IN EDUCATION President James A. Garfield, i graduate of Williams College, onci said of Mark Hopkins, the most fa mous head of that institution o: which President Garfield’s own sor later became president: "All that is needed to make : college is Mark Hopkins on on< end of a log and a boy on th< other.” All the fine buildings in th< [world never made an education in situation. What counts is the teach ers and their ability to inspire the young folk who come to learn. The people of Brown County, Nebraska, are alive to that truth. Unable to send their children to a town high school, several miles a way; unable to finance the const ac tion of a modern high , school build ing; they have built with their own hands a sod house of the an cient prairie type to make a place where teachers and Student can meet, taxing themselves for the i • r i 1 salaries ui gwu. lcahius. Even so did the ancient teachers and founders of some of the world’s great universities meet the demand of eager youth for learning. The very word "acadmeny” comes from the grove of Academe where Plato taught his disciples in the woods. Abelard, founder of the University of Paris, began in a rude hut, around which students pitched their tents. There is hope for America so long as such devotion to education finds expression in spite of material difficulties. And we venture that the boys and girls who attend school in this Nebraska sod house will cherish the memory of that Alma Mater and remember what they learned there longer than many whose schooling takes place in Gothic temples. WHAT THE RAILROADS MEAN TO YOU What the railroads mean to the American people was well express ed in a recent statement by A. J. County of the Pennsylvania sys tem. The financial condition of the lines affects the financial status of about 5 0 per cent of the population, who either own rail road securities themselves or own them indirectily through insurance, banking, educational and similiar institutions which are heavy in vestors in railroad stocks and I bonds. | The railroads give employment |to about 1,000,000 people, whose' I jobs are imperiled when the lines Ioperate at a loss. Millions of other workers, in/mines, factories and all types of industry are dependent on railroad purchases for their liveli hood. In normal times, railroads are the greatest single purchaser o( supplies in the nation. Government itself—local, coun ty, state and national—is depend ent on the lines for much of its tax revenue. Railroad money paves roads, builds buildings, car ries on all kinds of government ac tivities, and educates thousands of our children. Every person benefits when rail roads prosper—every person feels the ill effects when they are de pressed. It is an excellent sign that thousands of industrialists, re Hi* r i picacuuug an ililts ui uusiiicss, aic behind the movement to give the rails a fair deal. ' TODAY AND TOMORROW —BY— Frank Parker Stockbridge ’ BOOKS ... The New Deal People are not buying so many books, these days; but good book* • are selling more than they did > There was a period of several year; : in which any book would sell if ii - were only nasty enough, and ; great number of prurient-mindec would-be authors, who never hac : mastered even the rudiments oi " writing, broke into print with vol : umes which irresponsible publish . ers put out and which seemed tc /Air m-irlrnt That sort of "literature” is fad r ing from the scene. In its place are serious discussions of important and vital questions, which peopie who are eager to know what all the economic troubles are about, are rushing to buy. i To my desk come many books. > In the past ten days I have received not less than six books discussing . the New Deal from different angles all of them worth reading, al 1 though l don’t agree with all of the authors. :? * -r WALLACE ... an honest view I have long maintained that the most perfectly-functioning brain in the Roosevelt Administration is that of Henry Wallace, Secretary IT IS a real pleasure to hear of ; st St st PERSON WHO looks on the i’e * MATERIAL SIDE of life with sucl * * «• INNOCENCE.

And the public ® is fast returning to laxatives in liquid form. Do you know the reasons? The dose of a liquid laxative can be measured. The action can thus be regulated to suit individual need.
