Slowly anel without ostentation the “dry” aide has made its impression on Calvin CooUdge so that law enforce ment may be expected henceforth with all the vigor that the govern ment can command. Mr. Coolidge, In his early days in politics, was counted as not altogether “dry” but whatever lie might have been be fore. lie stands today as the only pres dent In the last five years w'ho has won the absolute confidence of the ‘‘drys.” Here is a significant an nouncement by the board of temper ance of the Method! t Episcopal :h’.r "h: ''The vigorous and intelligent action of Attorney General Stone in New Terser, together with the quite evi .■1011' personal interest of the presi ient of the United States in the problem of law enforcement clcarlj heralds the dawn of a new day. Tto erennt official ? will be ‘put down.' Faithful .nen will be elevated. Crim inal rebellion will be crushed. 'The prohibition law wil be enforced.” “Dry” Jubilant For several weeks there have been whisperings that Mr. Coolidge had taken the prohibition problem into his own hands and was watching en forcement very closely. The “drys" have been Jubilant. They claim to have been harrassed and obstructed it every turn by subordinate officials ind that the president’s recognition of the situation is a moral victory for the cause of enforcement. Mr. Coolidge lias had relatively little to say about prohibition since he took office. He is represented, however, as viewing the matter from the viewpoint of law and order. An amendment forbidding the manu | faeture and sale of intoxicants is a part of the constitution; a law has been passed providing penalties for violation and there is nothing for an honest and sincere public official to In but to enforce the law. Rome of the felling expressed by I he “drys” (hat they have not been given co-operation by the government Is dve to tlie presence in high ad ministration quarters of pronounced f ‘wets.’’ The secretary of the treas ury, Andrew Mellon, is called a "wet.” having had large interests In a distill ery before prohibition, lie is much | too busy with the financial side of the government to give personal at tention to the work of one of his duties—that of internal revenue which inclu l?s the prohibition unit—and while no one has ever proved that he ever interfered with prohibition enforcement, the “drys” have nevei been satisfied and there is pending in congren a bill to reorganize the pro hibition unit by removing it from tht authority of the commissioner of Internal revenue. The “drys” have been besieging every president since the Eighteenth amendment was adopted. President Wilson was not in sympathy with the Volstead act. in fact he vetoed it on a technicality but plainly didn't like the measure anyhow. Air. Harding never served liquor at the White House tide but took a drink regularly after his gulf game until someone reminded him that his act in carrying any liquor from his own rooms in the White House to the golf club was a violation of the Volstead law unless he obtained a permit. After that Air. Harding refrained and toward the end of his career, became a teetotaler and made at Denver, a plea for law enforcement which entirely satis-ied the “drys.” Measures Pending There are various measures pend ing in congress relating to law en forcement. Most of them.look toward the strengthening rather than the | weakening of the Volstead act. The Stalker bill, for instance, would pro vide Jail sentences for first offenders. The Johnson bill provides for de portation of aliens convicted of vi olating the Volstead law. It once passed the House hut failed to be voted on in the Senate and Is now up again before the House. In addition to the foregoing, the "drys” are trying to get legislation which shall place all beverages, al choeollc liquors, under control of gov ernment agencies for sale and dis tribution and that particularly the government should acquire all liquor now In government bonded ware houses. The purpose of this is said to be legitimate distribution. This is not all, however, for the “drys” are urging too. that “event ually congress should place under the provisions of the prohibition act all intoxicating liquors made and pos sessed before the passage of the Eighteenth amendement; at present | wealfhy owners of ‘cellars’ provided they can establish the fact or fiction that their liquors were obtained be fore prohibition being undisturbed by the prohibition law.” Vassar Asks Girls Their Opinions of Smoking Baa Poughkeepsie, N.

And oh! my heart was gay! But suddenly, I tripped and fell, And when I raised my head, And reached my hand for help, both Love And Happiness had fled. Then lay I in the dust of earth, And wept, and prayed to die, While clouds of storm and darkness Obscured the once clear sky. Then Duty came, with stern demand, “Arise! You must go on; You must not fail because your friends Of fairer days are gone.” And so I rose, and gave my hand To Duly, while the storm Released its gathered fury on Dy bowed and shrinking form. At times I scarce could see. but e’er Felt Duty’s strong, strong clasp, I stumbled oft, but aye was kept From falling, by his grasp. And presently I, too, grew strong, strong that I could tread ■ilje dark way bravely, and could face The storm with lifted head. The storm ceased, and on Duty's face Which had seemed harsh to me. There glowed a light that never shone On land, or on the sea. And love and Happiness came back, Forgiveness to implore, To ask that they might go with me, To serve me evermore. —Clara Aiken Speer, in tKe Kan sas C’.ty Star. Untroubled by Trifles. From the Philadelphia Public Ledger. At the luncheon table someone, Esked "Shy certain men never seem! to break down, even under the sever est strain. The name of a man, known to everyone, was mentioned. 1 “He understands the relative im portance of things,” said a gentleman at the table. This was accepted as (rue explanation of the publla man's ability to do a thousand tasks without killing himself. To those who have studied the life of Benjamin Franklin, it is a con stant source of amazement that this Philadelphian could do so much. John Adams once unwittingly revealed the source of Franklin's strength. This was his refusal to got excited over little things. I Adams, in anger, said that while1 he (Adams) was “active and alert In every branch of business, both in the House and on committees, con stantly proposing measures, support ing some and opposing others, dis cussing and arguing on every ques-: lion,” Franklin was to be seen “from! day to day, sitting in silence, a great part of his time fast asleep in his, chair.” “Vet,” said the biographer, “Frank-' lln was appointed on every import^ ant committee, and Adams on few;, and the sage, could he but have read his brother congressman's comparl-, son, might have fairly retorted, wlthl the wisdom of Poor Richard, ‘He1 that speaks much is much mistaken,*, or ‘The worst wheel in the cart; makes the most noise'.” I George Washington was 4. fair companion of Franklin in his abij-j 11 y to distinguish between the im-| portant and the unimportant, and to sleep at opportune moments.

Howe, in The Designer. The young are nearly always somewhat bolshevistic because they have not yet had their chance; the old nearly always are bolshevistic because they have had their chance and not taken full advantage of it. The most sensible people are those between the ages of 30 and 45. I speak of men only; w omen .rarely have any real sense. From the cradle to the grave they are fed on non sense, and few entirely get rid of It. Men campaigning among women are much like candidates campaigning among voters with their hand-shak ing, smiles, bows and compliments. Women should never believe a man unless they have other evidence than his gallantry, his compliments, or his word of honor. In his intercourse with other men. a man’s word is frequently as good as his bond; It never Is with women. Here, from youth up, he is taught to hide his wolf fangs with sheep teeth. Reliable Witness.
