Church and Good Citizenship.
I'icii!rnt Harding' remark to the Bible
chol chit of a Washington church will take
dctft hold tu rriuu American. The man who
t choen by hit countrymen to aume the re-
tpnnMblc of lice of pretident of this greatest of all
republic, is brought face to face with the big
; ToMcm of national life a no other man can be.
Jle must liandle all perplexing questions of a
complex rocial and industrial condition, with
laiiucv and jiMice to all, and to the permanent
advancement of 'the common interest. That he
turn to the Mot High ior guidance is not to b;
wondered at. but is a natural thing. When War
ten i. Harding call on the church to aid in re-
adjtit-ling society, to overcome the frivolous
tendency oi the people, he docs so because he
believes that through the influence of the church
in no other way, the public mind will be tran
(tuilied and public restlessness quieted.'
Union of church and state is not involved in
this, and the president has no thought of sur-
tendcring the political existence of the land into
control of the ecclesiastical. His own words
make clear his intent:
In spite of our complete divorcement of
church and slate, quite in harmony with our
religious freedom, there is an important rela
tionship between church and nation, because
no nation can prosper, no nation can sur
vive, if it ever forgets almighty God. I have
believed that religious reverence has played
.a very influential and helpful part in the
matchless American achievements, and I
w ish it ever to abide. . (
The church rose magnificently to its oppor
tunity and met nobly its obligations .while the
war was on. Some regret is felt that it has not
""so entirely answered the call made upon it since.
Perhaps this is due to a reaction that involved
all, yet now the church should arouse and make
itself felt. '
Omaha has lately had one or two good ex
amples of how the church may properly exercise
its great power and. exert its tremendous energy
lor the common weal. Inculcation of the doc
trine of good citizenship, which includes rever
ence for law and order, is as essential as are the
dogmatic tenets of religion. Sound morals nec
essarily include those qualities that make for
stability in the state. If the church can aid in
restoring the simpler life, as the president sug
gests, to the republic, it will have justified itielf
in peace as it did in war. And when the Amer
ican people will accept its religion with less of
frivolity and more of sobriety, the world will be
benefited, for it is yet true that "righteousness
isaltcth a nation." ,
An attorney, pleading before the supreme
court of Nebraska, in the course of his address
referred to the American Legionnaires as "ex
aggerated patriots." His exuberance may have
exceeded his judgment.
A little less than five years ago those "ex
aggerated patriots" were glorified plowboys, ex
alted bookkeepers, sanctified street car conduc
tors, humble but necessary plumbers, students
at the university, and otherwise employed in the
pursuits of peace. The government reached out
and put them into a great army, the mightiest
that ever waked by its tread the echoes of
Four years ago, they were in France, at
Chateau Thierry, Bellcau Wood, St MihieL in the
Argonne Wood. Some of them are there yet.
Those who came back never want that ex
perience repeated. But they know that when
they marched away they left behind some who
did not want them to go, or to come back; some
who hoped and prayed and did all they dared to
undo the great object this country set out to ac
complish. Remembering this, those boys have
pledged themselves to a program they think is
needed to insure that if this country ever has
to defend itself again, it will not be divided.
They may be wrong in their method, but
there is nothing askew in their patriotism, even
i it be of a little "different character than is ex
pressed in the lives of some who did not feel the
breath of war so closely as did the American
Finding Homes for Children.
"There is no substitute for a father and
This is a simple expression of the belief upon
which the Nebraska Children's Home society has
built a work so magnificent that a Nebraska
ranch owner has bequeathed $35,000 for the en
dowment of its work.
The' Home society has no home; it finds
homes. It does not try to take care of homeless
children by placing them in a dormitory main
tained by charity; it undertakes to find foster
parents who will adopt them into homes that
are homes in every sense of the word. In its
28 years it has aided 7,000 boys and girls; it has
tound permanent homes for over 2,000. Today
it is taking little children, outfitting them with
clothes, boarding them for the short period until
a home is found for them, finding them, homes
and supervising their care in these homes until
they are 21 years old all at an average expense
Influence in the World.
The world after all is nothing more or te
than the people who live in it. It grain and it
ores, it machines, it gold and silver are worth
nothing at all until they are energized and put
into use by the human beings whose heads and
hearts direct it all.
Two men on an Omaha street corner were
heard the other day debating the identity of
Omaha' most influential citizen. One mentioned
a certain banker, scheduling the wealth at hi
command. The other named a man of ordinary
wealth and said: fy man represents people.
He represents them because he knows them and-
ihey know him; he spedks for thchi and they fol
low him. Your man may win once by might of
his wealth: in the long run my man is bound
to win because people always win eventually
over any material thing."
The last man was right. He who controls
people through his service and example controls
more than wealth, for wealth is effective only as
people use it and no man yet has gained posses
sion of so much wealth that its power alone out
weighs the will of everybody else.
Another Sign of Improvement.
An Omaha business man called attention to
the bank statements, published during the week,
as an evidence of improvement. Increased de
posits, amounting to something like $15,000,000
over the total of a year ago, he accepts as proof
that money is coming out of hiding and going
to work again. The end is not yet, nor is it rea
sonable to expect it ever will be reached. Many
people distrust banks or any institution for the
safe keeping of money, and prefer to conceal
their possessions, after their own fashion. Timid
ity among owners of money usually manifests
itself when a period of depression sets in, and,
unwittingly, these contribute to the stringency
by withdrawing from circulation all the money
they control. Cash kept in a safe deposit box,
in an old sock, or a tin can, may be secure from
theft, but it is not doing its share of the world's
work. However, with a renewal of confidence
this comes out of hiding and gets back into har
ness. . That is what is taking place right! now.
Dollars that have been in concealment for
months are showing their faces in public again,
and business is better all around as a result.'

The Welcome to the West.
The' city commission's appropriation of
$10,000 for a comfort station at Elmwood park
is tardy recognition of a courtesy long due au
tomobile tourists passing through Omaha.
Although thousands of cars traverse the va
rious cross-country highways through Omaha
every year, they are lost in the volume of traffic
incident to a great city. That is why the needs
of the tourists have not been impressed upon
Omaha as they have upon many of the smaller
cities along the way, which have established
comfortable camping grounds with the various
conveniences of water, fuel aud light. Yet such
conveniences are needed even more in a big city
than in the smaller town, for here the tourist
does not feci free to knock at the door of a
stranger's house and ask for water or other serv
ice, as is frequently done in the country.
The Elmwood park ground will simply repre
sent in a modern way the same spirit of hospi
tality which used to be extended by every settler
to the ox caravans of pioneer days.

Holdrege Progress. v
Any serious compensation measure based on
an equalized taxation will meet with popular ap
proval. The bill passed by the house Thursday
seems to carry no provision to this end and will
probably result in great confusion. It remains to
be seen whether or not the service men will
accept it. '
Blooming ton Advocate.
H. M. Crane The people of this vicinity gen
erally approve of the bonus bill as passed by the
house. The only feature remaining is the financ

on the people in the way of taxation. If the
profiteers could be reached or the foreign debt
made to pay the bill there would be no hardships.

J. H. Walsh In an interview with bankers,
American Legion men and business men as re
gards the bonus bill passed Thursday by the
house, the sentiment is strong against the bill.
All are opposed to the certificate plan and view
with alarm the throwing onto the small banker,
in this agricultural community, these frozen
securities. In the small towns where competition
is extreme it becomes mandatory on the small
banker to put out money in a 4 1-2 per cent in
vestment, while business firms would be handi
capped for further loans.
