Harding Telia Plana.
President Harding sought to clari
fy todayjhe bewilderment of the pub
lic over "the policy of the administra

thracite coal strikes. .
The president authorized the an
nouncement that he think it desir
able and necessary that congress, be

him to take over railtoad and mines
to meet a great national emergency,

firmly of the opinion that such legis
lation mutt voluntarily form con-
res. He will make a formal re
ueet for it.
Furthermore, the statement was
K homed at the White House, that

was emphatically stated that gov-
iment (enure of any railroad or
line would be the last thing that

The president desired the that this

mistakably clear that he authorized
Bis spokesman to say that he does

no thought at present that so serious
an emergency will develop from the
existing industrial conflict as to
make necessary an executive act
which would clash so violently with

Attorney General Challenges Promise of Democratic
Nominee for Governor to Reduce Taxes De

promise of Principle.
Polk, Xeb., Aug. 29. (Special
Telegram.) Attorner General Clar
ence A. Davis, at a meeting held
here today challenged Charle W.
Bryan, democratic candidate for gov
ernor, to cease dealing in generali
ties about the reduction of taxes and
point out so the voters will know
just how he hopes to accomplish
his promised tax reductions.
The occasion for the meeting was
the 16th anniversary of the incorpo
ration of the town of l'olk, which
was celebrated by a gala day, con
sisting of band concerts, sports of
various kinds, a merchants' parade,
a chautauciua program and two
speeches, one by Davis, and the other
In an address of more than one
hour and a quarter, Bryan told of
how through his efforts he had es
tablished muuicipal coal yards,
brought about reduction in the sell
ing price of ice, light, heat and pow
er, and also gas. He asserted that
should he be elected he could re
duce the slate taxes fully 20 per cent
as a starter. He further declared
that the code system should be en
tirely abolished and the state again
go back to the innumerable boards
Davi Analyse Dollar.
Davis made an analysis of where
each tax dollar is spent. He said
that out of each dollar paid in taxes
but 19 cents went to the state, the
balance, 81 cents, being spent by the
various local governments.
"How does Mr. Bryan houe to re
duce taxes 20 per edit?" asked Da
vis. "Six cent of the V) cents in
state taxes goes for education. Does
Mr. Bryan propose to do away with
that 6 cents, thus depriving our state
educational institutions of support?

Bryan declared that while the
liquor question may be important in
same states, it had been agreed by
the democratic candidate that it was
not important here.
Replying to this feature of Bryan's
speech, Davis said:
"How are the mighty fallen. For

to protect it from the forces of evil

They have represented the better ele

are none the let noteworthy. W
refer to the farm boys and girt'
club, embracing at the present time
membership of S'10.000, with field
of endeavor covering nearly every
part of the United States. Organized
in a small way about 10 year ago
under the auspice of the Department
of Agriculture, with the idea that
the enlistment of young life on the
farm might vitally affect farm prac
tice and create an interest in farm
problem, club work ha exceeded
the expectation of its most optimis
Farm have always teemed with
secret and the fields, kitchens, pas
tures and feeding pen have been
filled with opportunities. Two dec
ade ago these tecrrt were little
realized and the growing youth had
little or no idea of just what the
farm offered in the matter of a fu
ture life work. Hut today, through
the avenue of club work, the boy
and girl enrolled have acquired in
formation and displayed initiative
which i the marvel of their elder.
The boy and girl club worker of
today arc business men and women
in the making. They have their own
officer and at their mieting held at
regular interval thry handle thing
in a business-like way. The proper
rations for hogs and sheep and cat
tle, method of canning fruit and
vegetables, the care of baby chick,
the cost of producing corn and po
tatoesall the-se are subjects which
are thoroughly threshed out. The
boy and girl club member are econ
omists. In a census taken of 253 who at
tended the International Live Stock
exposition in 1920, it was found that
the combined wealth of these young
folks was $300,000, all of which had
been acquired through club work.
Club worker are interested in edu
cation a evidenced by the fact that
two year ago 1,800 of them entered
agricultural college for coure
which would more fully equip them
for their rural task.
Youth i ever optimist!, ever
hopeful. Somehow, when one see
these energetic young people there
is a tendency to forget the fact that
times have been dull and that the
Industrial skier have been dark.
Rather there come the thought that
the activities of these boys and girl
augur well for the future. Equipped
with facts about the farm and the
f;.rm home and problems which were
unknown to their parents, they are
going forward to be a real force
in community upbuilding. The les
sons learned in their club work
are fitting them to be virile leader

During the night, men attempting
