flat It Coolidge, or
^ 47f She's Proud of It.
** An Puritan President.
^By ARTHUR BRISBANE^
President Coolidge, according to
news agencies, defeats Hiram John
son 2 to 1 in Michigan’s primaries.
It is impossible just to say to what
extent Coolidge heat Johnson, and
to what extent Henry Ford beat
Johnson by his recent endorsement
of Coolidge. Ford is the most in
fluential man in Michigan, and
without taking him into account,
you can’t judge the result of the
Mary Garden, once a Scotch im
migrant girl, decides to become an
American citizens. She says she is
47 years old and proud of it.
That’s the right spirit. No mat
ter how many years you have gone
through. How many good years
have you ahead, what do you
amount to now?
Ninon Del Enclos, who made a
specialty of being charming, main
tained her specialty until she died.
Young men fell in love with her
when she was past 70. She left
her best books to V'oltaire, who
was brought to see her when he
was a little boy, thus proving her
Penelope couldn’t have been very
young when Ulysses came back
fa>m all his travels, yet he found
►^ns house crowded with suitors that
wanted to marry her.
Trees die at the top. While the
top is all right, the rest is all right.
I,et w’omen remember that, and
worry more about the inside of the
head, less about the hat or the out
side of it.
Religious gentlemen, gathered at
Troy, praise Mr. Coolidge a.s “our
Puritan president,” calling on him
to cleanse our internal affairs.
Those gentlemen mean well, hut
they ought to look up the name
The United States doesn’t want
a Puritan president, or a free and
easy “wide open” president, or a
Mohammedan, Baptist, Catholic or
Christian Scientist president. It
wants a good average American,
that will attend to national affairs
and let Americans settle their re
ligious and other ideas, from Puri
tanism to bobbed hair, for them
The state of New York struggles
to secure a bill forbidding the em
ployment of children and women
more than 48 hours a week.
Two disgraceful facts are there.
First, that women and children are
allowed and compelled to work
more than 48 hours a week.
Second, that women and chil
dren should be compelled to work
_ Children should be protected
educated in their youth. Wo
Jhien should not be called upon for
ar.y work other than producing and
caring for children.
Labor, that uses its political In
fluence to shut out ambitious im
migrants from Europe that this
country needs, could protect itself
better through some just method
to do away with the competition of
women and children that reduces
wages—at the same time encourag
ing the coming of needed immi
grants of the right class.
The Russian budget is in good
shape, taxes coming in regularly,
more money taken in than Russia
needs-real money, at that. Rus
sians intend to show their world
activity by planting the red flag at
the north pole by the first of Sep
tember. Ten scientists will go
along with the fliers.
The world may yet see in Russia
and the United States the two chief
competing nations of the world.
There is nothing like revolution to
stir up energy and ability, as you
learn from the history of France.
The Methodists propose to pub
lish a daily newspaper. Catholics
not long since had a similar idea.
It would be an interesting experi
ment, welcomed and watched by all
editors. A religious newspaper
might develop ideas to use in the
church, of which the great problem
is to make church services interest
Henry Ward Beecher knew it
when he sold a slave girl at auc
tion from his pulpit.
Young girls in a public high
^Ij-hool were branded, and painfully
iifltfigured in a stupid hazing per
formance connected with a secret
school society called the Delta
Kappa Gamma sorority.
Such nonsense should he barred,
from public schools, at least. A
secret society, whatever its nature,
has no place in the public school,
which is intended to make the chil
dren members of the one great
fraternal society known as the
United States of America.
Henry Ford will buy a trolley line
connecting Muscle Shoals with the
Gulf of Mobile, according to re
port. He might utilize the gas en
gine trolley car that he once showed
this writer in his Dearborn labora
tory. Light in build, his car could
cross the continent ut the rate of
fit) miles an hour without taking on
fuel, and at less than half the pres
ent cost of transportation. That
ought to interest railroad men now.
If it doesn't, the kind of competi
tion it will give them will interest
them later—and too late.
Forty thousand bottles of boot
