In The Hall of Fame A pavagrapher in The Nation points out that Walt Whitman has finally won elevation to the Hall of Fame of New York University—lias won it, so lo speak, by the skin of. hi* teeth, without a single vote to spare. The news makes one wonder just what ijiwlilica- tions a poet must have to win a really enthusiastic admission to Unit classic shrine. All of which, of course, is just by way of re-marking on the prcvcrsencss of the public in rt'Kiinl to Whitman. The man was the voicu of Democracy, if ever there was one—yet Democracy ignores him. By the vast majority of • Americans he is as unread today as he was 50 years ago, when no proper gentleman would have a copy of "Leaves of Grass" in his house. Probably half of the people who have read any of his works know him only as the author of stuff that is rather bold and outspoken. The number of Americans who really know him is comparatively small. Yet he is probably the greatest poet America has produced! Seeding the Same Goal Friendship is Hi strange sort uT thing. It appears, sometimes, where you would least expect it, and flourish;s in spots where you would suppose that it could find nothing whatever to feed on. So it is with the friendship between Clarence- Uarrow and Dr. dun nee True Wilsoii»**ii*wns revealed at Houston recently that these two men, who are in public bifter foes on almost any question one can call to mind, are in private extremely warm friends. The wet -agnostic and the dry fundamentalist have, debased with each oilier a great deal and have traveled together a great deal; and somewhsrc they have found a common ground, where mutual admiration and esteem can grow unchecked. Dr. Wilson's discussion of the growth of this friendship is very much worth reading. It increases, somehow, one's respect for both men. He says: "The fact is, if anybody can be a Christian without knowing it, I think it would bo Clarence Darrow, for if you make a list of the Christian qualities which a Christian ought lo have, such as living according lo the. Golden Rule, OUT OUR WAY loving everybody, • taking up for^lhe' ones who need it.most, standing against privilege and in-favor of the under-privileged, he lives what we teach as the best standards of life." .That, coining from a devout churchman to n man who mounts lecture platforms to denounce religion, coming ligni a militant dry to one of the nation'^ most outspoken wets, is n remarkable tribute. It points to .something that is of considerable' import- .ancc; namely that men can lrav:l toward the same goal by the most diverse roads, and that they can make ; I lie going smoother for themselves and others if they aiia broad enough to realize thai there are, in tho old phrase, many paths to salvation. Banks and .Communities There Is much being'said of lute about bunk failures. Several thoughts came la our niiiul «hcn we henr ot another bank closing Us doors. One thought Is Hint llicrc Is u com- inunlly which fulled before Its bank did. When people borrow the bank's money and don't pay It back It means thai' Just thai much loss Is sustained by thai bank. The more there Is ol llils kind ol delinquencies the quicker the tank will close. In most o( the cases where we arc acquainted with conditions. v:c believe Dial the closed bank was In belief condition Ihc day it closed (linn (ho community w;is. If the comiminily liad paid up the bank would not have closed. Hunks are not ordinary business concerns. A merchant, manufacturer or farmer can handle his business as he pleases (or It's his own capital lie Is JuiiEllng. A banker handles other people's money, so ho must handle things dllfercntly. Banks should not have friends or enemies. A good bank K not In the helping 01- hurling business. It is properly an exchange sliop and the gocd should not bo exchanged' for (he worthless, else double will alraddtc your neck pretty soon. Banks which help friends or pun- Ish enemies nrc too apt to mako bad loans and far loo apl to drive aw^iy desirable business. —C. C. WnUon In Lake City Sun-Times.

Until he was about 22 Haupt- nann vaccilated between fanning, paintliva and sculptoring. His Jn- cilncls were, however, always ar- isttc. So. when he was obliged lo icltirn (o licrlln from his travels because of illness, -lie decided lo try his hand at writing. When he was 27 he began the series cf dramas which set him at ft bound at the head of the Cieinmn dramatic writers of bis lime. The first of his plays appeared at a time -when cultivated Germans read nothing but works of Scandinavian, French and Hussion writers. It was Hauptmann who forced German attention back to its native writers. Hauptmann established the naturalist movement in his country with a series of dramas depicting life of the working classes or poverty-stricken middle classes. His Die Weber, a social drama of the rise, outbreak, development and failure of a miniature revolution, Is perhaps his greatest! works, lie was awarded the Nobel prize for literature In 1912 and Is still living. 1'imcmic conditions by a policy of '^ (lie administration.

The others were "tip overs," in which the bar and fixtures were wrecked. In announcing me figures, John P. Smith, deputy police commissioner, explained police bad to break the law to enforce it. Besides the speakeasy raids, police smashed 415 stills, 51 breweries and 10 cutting plants, Smith said. No arrests were made in the speakeasy raids with the exception of the 53, where "buys" had been made.
