THE FAIRMOUNT NEWS 4 4 The Fairmount News Published on Mondays and Thursdays A. S . ROBERT?, Editor and Publisher. Minnie McLucas Roberts. Associate. TWENTY YEARS AGO TODAY EVENTS AND HAPPENINGS IN FAIRMOUNT A DECADE AGO AS TOLD BY THE FAIRMOUNT NEWS, AND GLEANED FROM THE FILES OF THE PAPER FOR PRESENT DAY REMINISCENT READERS. LOCAL WORKERS IN JAPAN MISSIONS Interesting Letter from Mr. and Mrs. Thomas EL Jones of Fair-mount, Now in the Orient. Do You Buy Tire Discounts Or Tire Quality M M N M H We cannot offer you a big discount on Goodyear Tires. True tire value is found only in tire performance and no tire in existence will average better mileage and lower cost per mile than a Goodyear. Goodyear tires are protected against every one of the usual tire troubles. They are made safe, strong and sturdy, never skimped. They will go farther, last longer and cost you much less :n the end Members of the 160th Indiana, Lieut. Allen Parker's old regiment, Union veterans and citizens generally, contemplate giving Lieut. Parker a hearty welcome and reception on his return from the Phillippines next July. Lieut Parker was barely out of his teens when he enlisted and has demonstrated his mettle as a soldier and officer. He has had many responsibilities in the far away islands, has been on the firing line many times. He deserves a royal welcome by the people of his home city. Burglars entered the home of Mrs. E.O.

In the letter they tell of their work and what they have accomplished in the past five years and also recount the great needs yet to be accomplished.

Entered as second-class matter at the pcstoffice at Fairmount, Ind., under the Act of Congress of March 8, 1879. The principal hitch in the ratification of the four-power Pacific pact is that in Hitchcock Sioux City Journal The same publicity agents that used the "he kept us out of war" slogan are now busy calling Congress a "do nothing" Congress. Dubuque Times -Journal. We often hear it said that the next war will be a war of the chemists, and already they seem to have found out how to make synethetic gin with considerable belligerence in it. Ohio State Journal. An illustration of contrast is the difference between what the government pays for a thing, in war-time and what it can get for it in peacetime. Pittsburg Gazette-Times. With money so cheap in some of the Old World countries, the average European will not find it hard to agree with Iago in declaring "He who steals my purse steals trash." Scran-ton Republican. Cordell Hull, the chairman of the national Democratic committee, announces with a flourish that the Republican administration has not made good. That is what he is for. If he should announce that it had made good, he'd be out of his job as soon as the committee could get together. Hartford Courant. This also should be remembered: The government is not able, as some suppose, to draw unlimited amounts of money from some mythical reservoir. What it expends, the people must pay in taxes. Its machinery is the collective will in action. Its resources are such as "we the people" furnish. Minneapolis Journal. The Senate Democrats should not feel hurt because no one of their party was placed on the foreign debt refunding commission. It was a Democratic administration that had the pleasure of loaning the money; a Republican administration will have a high old time petting it back. Springfield (Mass.) Republican. TREATIES NOT FORMULATED BY CURBSTONE POLITICIANS In all countries parties to the various treaties which have recently been made there are groups of low grade politicians such as infest all legislative bodies who, for political and personal ends, are nagging the responsible governments which have been doing the best they could for their country in making international agreements. In no country, however, has anything more mischievous been done than the demand of Senator Hitchcock that the President furnish the Senate with the "detailed discussions" which led to the agreement on the so-called four-power agreement. Senator Hitchcock well knows that no such record exists, or could exist, and that the only important thing is the agreement reached. A treaty is made exactly as all other important agreements are made, whether public or private. A couple of gentlemen probably after a good dinner sit down by a comfortable fire if it is winter light their cigars and give and take with each other in a friendly way until their minds meet on some common ground. In this case it was the heads of the delegations, probably two at a time, all having previously conferred with colleagues as to what each shall try to get if he can. In this case there were doubtless innumerable conversations of that kind- Had the details of these conversations been made public as they aceurred, distorted as they would have been by designing persons, the whole world would have been kept fighting mad. Very likely there would have been street fights in every city. Ar.d that vra net the object of the conference. - -Sa n Fra'i:.; co Clvrcnicle.

When these farmers came in to "ELECT S.PIGGOT MAYOR." Quickly a committee of prominent citizens was formed and went en masse to the office of the real mayor. jn sterling tones, ringing with fervency and loyalty, the chairman of the committee assured the mayor that the citizens would not stand for this newcomer, Spiggot, "whoever he might be," and that they were with him to the last ditch. It was some minutes before the solemn purport of the committee's visit dawned on the mayor. Then he roared with laughter and explained all about the David Butler picture company being at work in Azusa on "Bingt Bang, Boom," which will be seen at the Royal theatre Saturday, March 25. The prominent citizens appreciated, the joke on themselves and readily consented, when introduced to Fred J. Butler, the director, to take part in some of the street scenes as real, honest-to-goodness townspeople in the throes of a municipal "election.

SPRING WHEAT NOT ADAPTED TO INDIANA Spring wheat is not adapted to In- diana and work spent on putting) in such a crop could be spent to better; advantage on something else, in the opinion of Prof. F. E. Robbins of the soils and crops department, Purdue University School of Agriculture. Many farmers over Indiana have been inquiring about this crop. In a few years, where the seasons have been cool, the yield at Purdue has been high but for the last three years spring wheat has not averaged five bushels to the acre, which makes it a losing proposition.
