They have never exercised the dominant influence in the com munity, to which they are entitled because of the lack of co-operation among them. The various distinctive groups should combine for their common Interest and then these groups should amalgamate into one general, organization of retailers. One of the most valuable fruits of thia co-operation has been found to be greater efficiency of credit infor mation.

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. :o: the exception bf one, and in these states the rule is that the children must attend school a fixed period of time each year until they are six teen. But in many states, for exam ple, Mississippi, the compulsory sys tem has been in operation but a short while. The law is not yet pro ducing the results which the matur-j ing effect of time should exact of it. Manifestly such a condition as de scribed by Dr. Tigert could not ex ist in a country where all, or prac tically all , children, ilad long been required to 'attend "School annually until they were sixteen.

I A. J- Si SCHAFER. 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." 1 There is a compulsory school at tendance law in every state, . with NOTICE TO CREDITORS The State of Nebraska, Cass coun ty, ss.

March 26. A great meeting in the interest of the Grant highway was held recently at the Cherry county court house in this city under the auspices of the valen tine good roads and community club Malcolm MacKinnon, secretary of the Grant highway association, who is on his- way from Chicago to Port land, and who had just made an in spection of the road between Stuart and Valentine, by way- of Cams, Springview. Nordon and Sparks, was present and outlined the progress be ing made in the development of a direct route for tourist travel from the third city in the world to the Pacific coast by way of Yellowstone park, the Snake river valley in Idaho, the old Oregon trail and the Colum bia river highway in Oregon. Cherry "county is the largest coun ty in Nebraska, being about the size of the state of Connecticut and re ceives the largest amount of state and federal aid under the Nebraska law. At the first Grant highway meet ing held here in 1919, no road had beeu built. Since that time twenty five miles of state federal road has been constructed, all of it on the Grant highway and a project is un der way for the construction of an other line of the Grant road between this city and.Crookston. ' Altogether about S400,000 will have been expended in' these im provements by the end of the present Chicago,' March 27. The follow ing women are among those running for congress this year: Mrs. Ellen Duance Davis of Philadelphia, 'Mrs. 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. Fordson tractors reduced to $395.
