'much to look at, either," and when
some good woman In tho crowd ex
claims that she wishes Mrs. Wilson
had come along again displays a
ready wit in tho reply, "I wish so,
too; she's much better looking."
Such meetings of the chief execu
tive nnd tho pooplo of the nation
nover lose tholr charm, especially tn
tho south, whero folks are just as
cordial and courteous to a republican
president as a democrat. On such
occasions, north or south, party lines
cut no figure, because It Is more tho

that Is honored, although tho vital
touch of tho personnel is what thrills,
Presfdent Wilson seems to have
enjoyed It quite as much as tho oth
ors and evidently felt himself per
fectly at homo among his own people
of the south, although his southern
nativity was more or loss occidental.
Am to his accomplishments In rear

anxiety, for if such service needs to
be rendered by his administration ho

Protecting Women Immigrants,
Tho nbwly projected policy of re
fusing to admit a woman immigrant,
unattended, with tho residence of a
man, even though a rotative, as, her
destination until satisfactory Inquiry
Is made Is a commendable otfort on
tho part of tho government to protect
these forolgn-born womon from pit
falls and thwart tho designs of so
callod whlto slarors. It Is primarily
an attempt to strengthen tho Mann
act, but should have even a further
reaching moral effect.
At best, many ot theso strangers,
both men and women, who como to
our shores with the best of inten
tions, find It difficult to avoid dan
gers lying very near the ports ot
entry. It has always been a harsh
commentary upon our attitude to
Ward the immigrant that upon land
ing he or- she should be beset and
surrounded with strange but alluring
temptations not known at home. It
must make a peculiar impression on
the stranger's mind to discover such'
things at tho very threshold of a
country making so much of lis high
ideals and its mission of molding tho
concrete world citizen.
But to all these things we are at
last awakening. Steps aro steadily
being taken, both by tho government
and prlvato agonolos of benefaction,
to amellorata tho conditions and sur
roundings ot tho immigrant. Just
what proportion ot our immigrant
women come thus unattended and
destined to homes of men is not
definitely given, but It is evidently
large enough to call for this vigilance
on the part of the immigration au
thorities, which, backed by the
proper zeal, should prove highly sue

"If you think too much about be

tion incorporated by President Wil
son In his Philadelphia speech, which
reminds us ot the stery t the two
travelers whose discussion of mind
reading culminated as follows
"I'll bet I can tell you what you're
thinking about," said the one.
"I'll bot you can do nothing of the
kind," said tho other..

When President Wilson suggests
that a president who think "too
much about being re-elected may not
be worth re-electing" he tn effect
proclaims hls'bellet that the best way
to secure ro-electlon Is to convince
the people that he does not care much
about being re-elected. Dy natural
inference, it Is not so much a ques
tion ot desire as a question of method
ot attaining the desire.

Wahoo Wasp: The recnt action of the
state board tn dismissing Dr. Thomas
from the State Normal at Kearney Is on
par with the action toward Crabtree.
No cause Is given in either tsase and tt
seems that at tho present time It would
be the proper thing for tho friends of Dr.
A. O. Thomas to Insist that he be a can
didate for the office of state superinten
dent next year.
North Platte Tribune: No charges were
preferred against Dr. Thomas, the only
orcuse offered by the board being that
It was "for the best results of the nor
mal schools of Nebraska." This Is a
lame excuse, Inasmuch as Dr. Thomas
has proven a most successful head of the
Kearney Hub: In lis "More or Less Per
sonal Column." which Is neither per
sona nor Impersonal, and without per
son or gender, tho. Lincoln Journal sug
gests that President Thomas' "activity
outside of the real sphere. of an edu
cator" convinced the board that a change
would be desirable. Theoretically, there
fore, an educator Is neither a man nor a
monkey, but just a deaf and dumb peda
gogue. We rather like thnt.
Friend Telograph: If tho schoolmasters
of Nebraska deslro to make a scape-goat
of Prof. Thomas we dd not suppose that
any ono need to object, but the time Is
coming In the politics ot Nebraska when
even the schoolraastors who are aiding In
the Increaso ot thi burdens placed upon
tho tax payers of the stute will be com
celled to btand from In under.
West Point Republican: It remained for
a state normal board, dominated by Tom
Majors, to turn the trick. Frlonds of
Dr. Thomas over the state, and they are
numbered by the thousands, will resent
this action, and soma day, will call that
board to a strict accounting.
Cenral City Nonpareil: The fine- hand ot
the latest member of tho board appears
In this lust move. Hon T. J. Majors, ot
our home- town, Peru, has been mixed
up In so many deals In connection with
the stato schools that his work Is easily
spotted. "Tom" doesn't have much r
gard for ho qualifications ot a teacher
when his peanut politics enter Into the
consideration of the case. And Governor
Morehead knew about what Tom Majors
would do when he made the appointment,
too, because they are from neighboring
counties and the Majors' record Is an
open book In that part ot the stato. We
Imagine T. X Is not alone tn this last
bit of rough work.
FTSmont Tribune: The incident Is bound
to be disturbing to tho equanimity of the
school, but It cannot be assumed there Is
no reason for the board's action. Neither
is tt to be taken for granted a iatlstac
tory successor to Mr. Thomas is not to
be had. Usually we are able to go on
from good to better sad eventually to
the superlative degree.

Inner Circle IoIIUcs.
OMAHA1, Oct. . To ttie Kditor of The
Bee: H Is not quite fair to the members
of the Schoolmasters' club to charge them
with being responsible for the dismissal
of President Thomas. While It Is true
that his chief enemies are In that otganl
tatlon, the majority of the club are his
friends and admirers. The present nnd
past representatives of the Glnn Book
company, the present owners of the Ne
braska Teacher and the University Pub.
Ilehlng company, tho city superintendents
from Fremont, Beatrice, Lincoln and
l'alrbury; the state superintendent, all ot
whom are members of tho Schoolmasters'
club, together with a few others, form a
sort of mutual admiration society. For
tho last five years they have named all
tr.ombera and officers of the club, they
have slated In advance all officers ot the
association, they have gone before the
governor each year to urge the appoint
ment of some favorite on the normal
board. The)' are all bosom friends of J.
V. Crabtrce and unfriendly to Presi
dent Thomas. They have caused the
name of Thomas to be presented a. num
ber ot times and black-balled for mem
bership In tho club. Mr. Cavlnesn was a
candidate for tho superintendence of the
Kearney schools eomo tlmt since, and
failed to secure the place. He charge
Thomas with his defeat. Thomas Is about
the only prominent school man In the
state who has cared to oppose this ring
and as a result he has Incurred their bit
ter enmity. It is generally talked In edU
catlonal circles that the members of this
group profit by the teachers bureau, con
ducted by tho proprietors of the Unlver
slty Publishing company. Thomas has
boldly opposed them and finally has been
defeated. It Is not fair, however, to the
Schoolmasters' club to be charged with
his dismissal. The majority of the club
regard his dismissal aa a blunder on the'
part of the board and a misfortune to
the Kearney Normal.

Wire I'nlllng for CoaTentloas.
OMAHA, Oct. M.-To tho Editor of The
Bee: I read with complete satisfaction the
letter written to The Bee by A. E. Shel
don of Lincoln, proposing that the Stato
Teachers' association hold Its conven
tions In various cities ot the state, such
as Grand Island, Fremont, Kearney,
Hastings arid Beatrice, and he might have
mentioned Norfolk and others. He pro
posed that the conventions be not con
fined to Omaha or to Lincoln, or both
alternating; that nasty politics and busi
ness chicanery be cut out as methods for
landing these conventions. lie's right. It
Is disgraceful to any city to employ some
of tho methods that have been employed
though not downright dishonest In se
curing thcae conventions. Aside from the
fairness of tho thing In letting them be
held In different places over the state
that might Invite them, tt would be far
more In keeping with what ought to bo
the dominant spirit of the association and
all other educational organizations of the
stale. Yet. tn view of tho long gamo of
rotten politics- played In oertaln circles,
culminating In the outrageous dismissal
ot Dr. Thpmaa from tho Kearney Nonkal,
I think It rather1 a travesty to spek ot
ethics' Instead of politics actuating .some
of our educational affairs. But as an
Omnha man. I think It should be suffi
cient that we Invito the teachers as &
means ot getting thtm to meet here In

Sioux City Tribune: Corporations seek
Ing to evade the anti-trust laws should I
employ students ot the Omaha High
school. Students are being required to
sign u statement that they do not be
long to a high school fraternity and to

about evading It by subterfuge. They
need some training on the moralities, as

to b taught that every citizen surrenders
some "natural rights" to government for
the advantages thst government confer

press are almost brutal In their criticism
of the Omaha Ak-Sar-Ben dance. With
out having any personal knowledge of
what Is known as the tango dance we
ar constrained to the belter that there

tha society ot most other cities, the good
predominates. If It was the manner ot
dancing It that made U objectionable,
then tt Is probable that the entire com
pany on the occasion of the Ak-8ar-Ben
ball Is suffering humiliation and morti
fication for the acts ot sn Indiscreet
few. There Is more opportunity for
practicing the virtue of charity In run
ning a newspaper than tn uy other oc
cupation or profession.
