Poll Tax Receipts The l.invrom'o rotinlv Democratic Ccnti'iil commitU'i', in :\ recent mcel- inu nl I'owluihm, iitlopU'd ii resolution to the effect thai IHI canilidalc sliall be cerlilk'il as a party nominee who buys blocks of poll tax receipts or contributes money for the purchase of blocks of poll tfix receipts for use of voters in Die primary. Tlie Lawrence county committee, lias taken a wise staml, and one that might properly be followed by other county committees throughout t h e .state. Wholesale purchase and distribution of poll tax receipts by or in behalf of candidates is an indirect way of buying votes. Tin- practice is bad in itself and bad because it makes county political -campaigns unnecessarily ex- It should be slopped. Stili Up in the Air S.-,y one tbiiiK for tlie nil-ship; it lit least provides military and iiviitlion experts with plenty of material for argument. Tin; Macon indulges in maneuvers with the U. S. fleet in tlie Caribbean, and is Iheorcliwilly, "destroyed" by hostile forces. Immediately otic faction announces thai the military usefulness of the airship is completely disproved—and another says with equal heat that the reverse is true, since the jliicon" disclosed .the position of the hostile fleet before beinp; destroyed. So now Ihe old argument is up again, and il probably won't, get settled for many a day. The airship is a triumph of invention anil a beautiful thing to look at—but what is it really good for? Take cither side yon like; you'll find plenty of people to differ with you, in either case. More Sex Equality Almost unnoticed amid the press of more spectacular events, a bill won the approval of Congress this spring extending still further the equality of men and women in American law. Tim bill removed all discrimination against women in the nationality laws. Heretofore an American man who was married to an alien woman, and who had children in some foreign country, could transmit his American cili/ensliip to those children; but itn American woman married to an alien could not. This hill removes that limitation, and also straightens out one or two other little kinks in the laws to put women on an equal footing with men. SiKJli changes botanic logical the moment we passed the c(|tial sullrage amendment. That it took so long to get thorn through, simply reflects the |x>\ver of inertia .in such matters, for there was never any valid objection to them. That the changes have at last been made is a victory for democracy. Frankenstein The destruction of the Nantucket lightship by the White li"«i Olympic is ti queer, back-handed testimonial to the perfect efficiency of modern mechanical means of aiding navigation. At the time of the accident the Olympic was following a radio beam sent out from the lightship—a tremendous aid to navigation in foggy weather. And in this case the beam worked all too well. The Olympic followed it with hairline accuracy—uml, finally, ran it down to its source and crushed the lightship from which it was originating. An accident of this type could never have occurred in the old days. II is a striking, if painful, bit of evidence about the accuracy of our new machinery I'm 1 keeping ocean-going ships on their cour.-'e. IDE GLANCES By George Clark The Editor's Letter Box THIS CURIOUS WORLD powilvr compucl." ynu get her ;i forsake pin or sn;t"]>y little CHURCH EXCUSE What the I'eoplc \V»nl ITo the editor:] Tlie trouble with Ihe American people lo-day is, that they think tlie old tiuiii of prosiiei ity has jmupjd off the capitalist track, and our President and Congress are trying to put it back on the track so we can speed away to ihc old system of plenty of work for the workers, and plenty of money and leisure for the shirkers. I!ul that is hot the case. What has happened Is, lhat the old train js a total wreck, and what we nave to do is to build a new train, i new system of government. Congress has appropriated a bil- lon 5 hundred million dollars as i foundation for the establishment it this new system. _ Too many of us ore still hanging on to the old system with one land and timidly reaching out the Jlhcr, groping for a hold in the lew one. The President says, "What tlw American i>eoplc want, Is what hey are going to get." How can the people !ct the President know whai. they want mless they organize? What we nust 'do is to grab hold of the :e'.v system with both hands; gut he people together in an organiz- .tion tnat can voice their wants. We are organizing tlie workers if ftfississippi County. We want all lie workers of this county to join | Ills union, so their voice may be icard, by the city council, by the utility authorities, anc 1 . perhaps in ilher parts of the state. Don't be afraid that you will .ose anything by joining this tin- on. You have nothing to lose If you ire Mkc me. Don't be afraid that your voice vill not be heard. The voice of .his union will be the voice of the MALAVS VALUE THE TEARDROPS Of= THE OUGONG, OR SEA COW, AS LOVE POT/ONS!
