Wilson Says Schools
Should Be Used More
Often for Meetings
SEA GIRT. N. J.. Aug. .-Neighbor,
hood consultation and a more extensive
use of school houses for gatherings
where public opinion might be conserved
were things Governor WHn advocated
today In hie speech at the Monmouth
County fair at Red Bank, N. J.,
After a series of conferences the gover
nor motored to Red Bank In the early
afternoon and was cheered aa he entered
the fair grounds.
"There is one thing that I have been
very Interested in in recent years in this
country," he said. "You' know, I used
to be a schoolmaster and the interesting
thing about the schools of the United
States is that the United States makes so
limited a use of them. They are public
buildings. They belong to the community.
They furnish ideal pjaces in which to
assemble and discuss public affairs.
"There is a certain class of politicians
that dreads nothing as much as that the
neighbors should get together and talk
things over because the minute you begin
to talk things over you begin to make that
most powerful instrument that exists in
any free country, I mean public opin
ion, ' It you. once gather public opinion
into, nuclei, Into heads, into centers, then
something is going to happen with regard
to politics Itself. ' . ,
"I used to think when I waa 4 boy that
you could tell an honest man by looking
in his eyes, -but I find you cannot I have
looked in some eyes that ' seemed very
honest and they turned out to be the eyes
of a rogue and you repeat that experience
a little while until you get to be about
say ES years old, and then you don't allow
appearances to Impose on you. Tou want
to know a man's table of contents. Tou
want to know what is in him and then
When you have found what is in him you
want to discuss it with the neighbors."

of Ethics Described
SEATTLE, Wash., Aug. JL-The lum
bermen's code of ethics as expressed in
the reciprocity Agreement between the
retailers aad the manufacturers was. the
subject of, Inquiry in today's hearing ot
the government end-trust suit against
the Northwestern Lumbermen's associa
tion. Victor H. Bookman, formerly sec
retary of the Pacific Coast - Lumber
Manufactur rs' association, testified his
association had signed the agreement
when it 'was adopted by the trade, but
that it was never observed by the manu
facturers. Correspondence between Mr, Beckman
and the secretaries of the retail asocia
tion, introduced in evidence, showed the
manufacturers complained the agreement
was a one-sided affair and worked to the
benefit of the retailers without being
of any service to the manufacturers.
Among the new provisions of the reci
procity agreement was one which said:
"Manufacturers jhouM not sell to par
tics who advertise to furnish lumber to
consumers at large or who solicit mail
oi ler business." .
Other sections dealt with similar regu
lations, the closing paragraph reading:
"It is considered contrary to the ethics
of the trade to sell to a firm or cor
poration, whose members or stockholders
are an aggregratlon of consumers, whose'
efforts are to produce lumber for con
sumers at wholesale."
