Col. Wade H. Harris Tells of the
Trials of Former Newspaper Days
“There is never a sorrow in wbicji
I do not share; never a happiness'
in which 1 do not rejoice,” Col.
Wade H. Harris told the several
hundred people at the Chamber of
Commerce Monday night, in response
to their tributes of love and ejtteen
on the occasion of his reaching he
aOth anniversary of hfe editorial
He recounted the improvements in
the printing art during bis half -yen
tur.v of connection with it, the shift
from the political, sectional and
personal editorial policy of the past
to the saner and more constructive
policy of developing a community add
a iieople a'ong all elevating lines.

Washington, Nov. 16.—Just one key
' position, in the -Washington of the
1 originnl L’Enfant design, remains for
’ a monument of the very first class,
and a row is on as to whom or
what it shall t>e erected to.
Os these five key sites of Major
L'Eufant’a plan the first, at the een
-1 ter, is occupied by the Washington
' monument. On the second, to the
northeastward of the monument,
stands the capitol. To the southeast
ward. on the third, is the Lincoln
memorial. To the northwestward,
fourth, is the White House. The
fifth, to t'iie southeastward, down by
the Potomac, is vacant.
It’s been granted, however, by a
; congressional joint resolution adopt
ed February 12, 1025, for a Roosevelt
memorial. Now the cry goes up
that this resolution was irnssed in too
much of a hurry—that Col. Rooseveit
was all rig'it but not necessarily the
only man the country ever produced
worthy to class with Washington and
* « *
Admirers of the late President Wil
son are particularly emphatic i« dis
puting the colonel’s claim to be re
garded as cne of the nation's three
greatest men. Woqdrow Wilson takes
precedence of him,' they say.-
Others think the site should be oc
cupied by a memorial or monument to
no single individual; that it should
repsesent some idejfl instead.
A third group believes no monu
ment should be erected in the capita
to any cne who has been less than
fifty years dead.
The McMillan commission, appoint
ed in 1001 to see that L’Enfant’s
planSyWere adhered to as Washington
grew, favored a memorial to the
founders of the constitution^
At any rate, an effort is sure to be
made to have the Roosevelt resolu
tion rescinded when Congress meets.
It is equally sur£ to be hard fought.
