The story of "Devil Dan" Daly proves that this truth applies to individuals, as well as to whole armies. One of the fightingest marines ever, Dan Daly won glory in several wars. In the Boxer rebellion rebellion he held a bastion single-handed against a horde of yellow men; in Haiti he routed a detachment detachment of Cacos; in one of the hottest engagements engagements of the World War, single handed, he captured captured a machine gun nest and 14 of the enemy. All this valor won him a hatful of medals—but when he returned to private life he had a hard time getting a job, finally landed one as bank nightwatchman and, whtn he died of heart disease disease the other day, was practically penniless. If Americans will study the story of 'Devil Dan' and luarn how poorly glory pays, it may be still easier for us to keep mit of the next war."

Not many papers can stanii up under such attacks. The vaunted "freciiom of the press" is more or less mythical. Newspapermen like to make themselves themselves believe they can be independent, but they cannot. Another development which has come on the heels of the New Deal is reflected in what happened happened to The Literary Digest. Before election The Digest, which had ill the past predicted, remarkably remarkably close, what the results in the election would be-, came out in pre-election days and, by a set of figures gotten, it claimed from a canvass canvass of the United States, Roosevelt was to be annihilated. annihilated. It alarmed the Democrats and a concerted concerted attack was started against Thu Digest— there were, too, intimations a prosecution under seme New Deal statute was to be started.
