North Platte Rotary Wants Our . Citizens To Read This! Out of years of experience us a penitentiary warden a prominent Rotarlan wrote us especially for this educational campaign. "One. of tho most fruitful sources of crime is il literacy. Any penitentiary will reveal that not more than GO per cent of tho Inmates finished grammar school; less than two per cent enter high school and less than a fraction of one nor cent remain and graduato; while practically none go to collcgo. These facts 'ro significant. "Crime Is tho result, in uart of a lack of balance. Education gives balance. How evident it becomes that society is obligated to leavo nothing undone to fostor tho education of boys. "To guide a boy Into channols of education is to guide him OUT of tho paths that lead downward. "No boy can faco llfo without an education un less ho faces it liko a hundred yard dush man would face a test with, a ton yard handicap. Without education tho boV finds himself wondering what has happened that other boys aro selected and ho Is ov lookcd. and that ho moro readily turns to those things that result in delinquency. "Society and that moans ovorybotly has nn obligation to tho boy that It Ignores at Its nerll. The derelict In society; tho ono who hates fiercely and blindly, and tho ono whoso hand is often against cv ory other man is generally Uio uneducated.

Buy the Economy of a Dodge Brothers Four Cylinder Car You havo probably noticed in the past two years, in fact ever since Dodgo took second place in sales, that the popular thing has been, for former makers of "best" sixes, or eights or twelves to come out with a "best" Four, to compete with Dodge. It may be that somo of these cars will give good service, when thoy have been given tho experience test, buc do you want to be the "goat," to test out any factories experi ments? Buy Dependability You want dependability, and you know tho record of Dodge service everywhere.
