chants get together and stick to

the dominant influence in the com

because of the lack of co-operation

common Interest and then these
groups should amalgamate into one

One of the most valuable fruits of

be greater efficiency of credit infor

Some manufacturers have undertak
en to eliminate the retailer by ex
tensive advertising and .by direct
telling methods but most of these
departures have proven abortive and
have inflicted very little injury on
the man who looks after the miscel
laneous needs of millions of consum
ers. The retailer has ms- prooiems
and harrassments, which if he should
have access to a council taTle or
others who are beset with the same
sort of troublesome details, he would
find his burden lessened and the ef
ficiency of his business promoted to
an immense extent. No retailer
should allow a mistaken self interest
or petty jealousy prevent him from
joining with his brothers in business
for their mutual advantage.

Dr. John J. Tigert, Federal Com
missioner of Education, declares that
the educational system of the Unit
ed States is almost at a breakdown
for these reasons: Only one pupil in
four completes instruction in the
elementary grades. In eighty cities
where school conditions are most fa
vorable, only half of the pupils s;o
thru these grades. In no state, he
says, are more than ii per cent oi
the enrolled pupils completing high
school course. In 37 states the per
centage is less than ten. Of all the
high school minils "more than half
get no further than the first year.'
Yet, says the New York American
In every school district increasing
difficulty is found in providing suf
ficient school buildings, equipment
and teachers .to accomodate the
growing elementary attendance. "In
none Is the teaching staff adequate
ly paid."
Dr. Tigert ..suggests no remedy,
but the American does, saying: It
is to change the method of grading
go that each pupil may advance as
rapidly as desirable and none be put
back, ito go over old ground. Only by
accelerating the rate of progress and
saving tremendous costs of needless
duplication and delays can the school
plant be made to produce a satisfac
tory product at a price the taxpay
ers can afford to pay."

Winnifred Mason Huck of Chicago,
Mrs. Marry Belle Spencer of Hill
Top, Cook county. 111., Mrs. Irene
Cleveland Buell of Ashland Neb., and
Mrs. A. K. Gault, mayor of St. Peter
Minn. The latter two are sisters.
The Philadelphia candidate seek
ing the democratic nomination., is a
great-great-granddaughter of Benja
min Franklin, who as a boy exchang
ed argumentative letters with .a
friend defending the propriety':of
educating women and theif fitness
for education. He explained in his
autobiography, however, that he took
this advanced stand "perhaps a lit
tle for dispute's sake." Though times
have changed, the present candi
dates encounter an attitude of sur
prise sometimes, Judging from re
marks of Mrs. Buell and Mrs. Huck.
"It makes me weary to have peo
ple expect me to be a freak because I
am interested in politics," says Mrs.
Buell of Nebraska, who adds, "moth
er always said I was the most do
mestic of her four daughters."
Mrs. Huck, who is the daughter of
tne late congressman William E.
Mason, in a statement to the wo
men's press, replies to a young wo
man's remark, "The nerve of her go
ing into such a big campaign." with
the comment that "to be a good con
gressman," as she means to be, will
require even more "nerve.".
Mrs. Buell. the "most domestic"- of
her mother's fonr daughters, has
been city prosecutor of Ashland since
1918, though one mayor tried vain
ly to discharge her when she per
sisted in prosecuting his brother.
Mrs. Gault. the Minnesota candi
date, is Mrs. BuelPs. sister. The two
have filed papers in accordance with
an agreement of long standing be
tween the sisters that If one ran for
congress the other should do like
wise, Mrs. Buell safs. Mrs. Bue41 set
the example. The Nebraska woman,
who classes herself as a progressive
democrat, adds that their father was
the first mayor of the municipality
of which Mrs. Gault is now mayor,
and that politics runs In the familv.
Similly, Mrs. Huck, republican,
says that common interests with her
father and determination to contin
ue his work led her to file for con
gressman at large to fill the vacancy
created by his death. She says the
fact that she is happily married and
the mother of four healthy children
influenced party leaders to desira
her candidacy.
