Northampton, Nov. 22. NEARLY every day the current news 'reports some item that indicates how great this country is and how great are its resources. We are sometimes criticized for put -V 'a t) Xi ting too much emphasis on size. It is true that quality is often more important than quantity.

But greatness in nearly every direction indicates power, and power is capacity for making progress and doing good. Recently it was announced that the banks were about to pay $632,000,000 to the Christmas clubs which make regular saving deposits dur ing the year in order to provide funds for the needs of the holiday season. This great sum is more impressive because it is so representative of the earnings and savings of the people. It would pay many times over the national debt at the end of the revolutionary war. The beneficial effect that will be secured from putting a large proportion of this money into circulation is important.

It will be used for cash purchases. If its owners will buy merchandise currently produced which in the future will require replacement the present needs of business and of. the unemployed will be best served. The reserve power of the people, of which this is a good example, always helps to relieve any situation. CALVIN COOLIDGE.

Although extensive plans had been laid for a fight on his candidacy, not voice raised against him when the nominations were started. The minority group, which had hoped to halt his ambitions, tossed their plan aside and Jumped on the. majority band-wagon, riding with it throughout the caucus. Picks Elective Slate. In addition to the agreement on Swenson, the caucus also picked a slate of elective employes, headed by John I.

Scene Indicates Killer and Assailant Battled Up Five Flights of Stairs. Baffled at every turn, police Saturday night continued the seemingly hopeless tank of finding the murderer of John watchman slain the night before In the old Ford plant, Fifth avenue north and Fifth street.

They questioned many person andi-- searcherd every Inch of the plant, ut nothing was uncovered to give them a starting point In the hunt. The few tiling that were learned served only to add to the mystery. Discover No Motive, Mont puzzling of all was the apparent lack of motive for the killing. The possibility of robltery was quickly when they discovered that Sivaid's money still w-as In his pocket, But even that discovery complicated the affair when It as leai-nrd that the watchman's keys were missing- From the first day of concerted effort by the homicide squad, augmented by several detect He a aligned to the case, police built up two possible clue both of them admittedly weak, and advanced only because of the lack of anything better, The first of these was that in snaking hi rounds, Sivald had run across a prowler, and that he had been niufdeicd In the ensuing fight. Broom C'aat Aside, The theory that Sivald was surprised by a prowler or by someone lyinn in wait for him was strengthened by the discovery of his broom, apparently hurriedly thrown to the floor.

By nature an orderly man, who knew him well said that under normal cireumtancs he would carefully -t the broom the wall. I In tne dual the investigators found the tiace of an expensive shoe, such a no ordinary t-i a would 1-e likely to wear. When the footprint wm m.c'e. however, could not be d-tuinimd. A they weighed the possibility thnt he murder had teen committed by a prowler, pii- admitted that It waa mitigated by the obvious fact that the building, unused for several yearn, contained little of value that could be carried away.

Little ause For Uglil. They likewise pointed out that there would be little cause for a fight to the death should the watchman have encountered a prowler who entered the building without knowing that thievery would scarcely be profitable. The second theory waa that might have been slain by someone who had a grudge against him. Thai possibility likewise diminished a police questioned friends and neighbors. All who knew him described SI-vaid as a mild-mannered man, who almost invariably stayed at home on Bights when he was not working.

His wife was equally at a loss to ascribe a reason for the killing of, her 66-year old husband. During his life in the United States, since corning from Hungary In 1903, she said, she was certain he had done nothing to incur enmity. Before that he had been a policeman In Budapest, she said, and in Gunman' Breaks Up Last Badger Rally; Gophers Lose, 14 to 0 sinking in the Atlantic, about 1,100 miles off the Ambrose lightship at noon, November 19.

A swarthy, quick-shooting bandit, with a livid scar on his cheek, set out on a carnival of crime in Minneapolis Saturday night. A theater employe blundered into his attempt to raid the box Office of the New Southern theater, near Sev en Corners, early in the evening and was killed for his temerity. The bandit faded hastily after that, forgetting his loot, and eluded police after a gun-battle among a maze of alleys aong Washington avenue.

Holds I Two More Places. But not a whit alarmed over the hue and cry raised by the murder at the theater, he held up two other places in the loop, a grocery store at Thirteenth and Hennepin, and the St. James hotel at Second and Hen nepln, At each he collected $50, The victim of his gun, engineer at the theater, 1122 Washington avenue south, is. Peter Hofmann, 19-0 Irving avenue north. He died In General hospital early Sunday with out regaining consciousness.

Stepping through a door from the theater lobby at about 8:30 p. the bandit pressed a gun against M. J. Mozis, 2010 Second street south, ticket collector, and ordered him to open the door to the cashier's booth. As the gunman shoved him behind a short partition hiding the door to the cashier's booth, Mozis pro.

tested that he did not have the key. The gunman pounded against the door. At that Instant Hofmann appeared around the other end of the partition. Ilres At Intruder. "What are you doing he demanded of the bandit.

Wheeling around, the gunman fired a shot into Hofinann's ab ri est door he had to pass the wounded man lying on the floor. The first door was locked. With scarcely a pause, the gunman ran the the next door, and out on Washington avenue. The sound of the shot attracted th? manager, J. Tunstall, wh had been on the second floor, and Mrs.

Tunstall, the cashier, who until then was unaware of what was transpiring on the other side of the door just behind her back. Fires at At the same time many of the 300 persons in the theater, rushed out. In a few minutes the wounded man, was in an ambulance on his way to the hospital, and most of the spectators re-entered the theater. As soon as she saw what had happened, Mrs. Tunsitall called police, Tw0 motorcycle officers, Walter Swenson and Robert Bullock, arrived In time to see a man turn to the right on Fourteenth avenue south and run toward Second street, As they swung in on Fourteenth avenue, a half block behind the fleeing man he turned, and fired two shots.

liOse Track of Man. As the shots whistled past their i heads the officers jumped from their machines and started in pur- suit. Firing as they ran, the officer chased the fugitive to Second street south, into an alley, and down the short alley back toward Washington avenue. In the middle of tha block the short alley joins another, running the length of the block between Fourteenth and Cedar avenues, and parallel to Washington avenue. In the darkness of the alleys, the officers lost their man.

They expressed tlie opinion that after leaping over a gate separating the short alley from the long one, he turned left and made his way safely to Cedar avenue. Aided by several detectives, tha officers searched the length of the alley and a number of buildings in the block, but found no trace of tho gunman. Grocery Store Robbed. A few hours later, while pollc were still hunting along Washington avenue, ha turned up at th grocery of Richard Hipp at 1328 Hennepin avenue, taking $50 front the cash register. This time with two guns, the bandit entered and asked for a bot tie of pop.

After drinking It, he confronted Hipp and a customer, Jim Sea lien, 11 Spruce place, with the two guns. Herding them toward tMe rear of the store, the bandit noticed tho safe. He ordered Hipp to open It. Hipp said he did not know tho combination, whereupon the bandit tried to turn the combination, carefully covering the dial knob with handkerchief. Being unable to open the safe, ho espied the cash register, from which he quickly scooped $50 In cash nl fled.

Robs Hotel, Shortly before 1 a. m. the same man walked Into the lobby of th.0 St. James hotel, 12 Second street north, He stepped up to the desk and asked the clerk, Alfred Peter son, if "Harry Smith" was registered. Peterson thumbed the liok and told him no.

Ha, not another redskin, but two whole football squads bit the dust. The crowd, to be sure, lingered for some rather bewildered obsequies but gunpowder had done Its lethal work. Wisconsin, which was no particular beneficiary by this violence won 14 to 0. Not Even An Arrest.

Moreover, though the slaying was, done in the open before some 37,000 eyewitnesses, almost the whole police force of Madison, not an arrest ws made. In fact, only a few clues were followed in a desultory way. The crowd seemed too surprised to raise jbe hue and cry. But, as some of the best sleuths re-constructed the capital crime, It hap pened something like this: The afternoon was nearlng Its official close, the sun's rays were trained on that part of the field where was soon to mark the spot. Wisconsin, already leading by two touchdowns, had stopped a Minnesota rally and gained possession of the ball.

It had some waggish notion of pushing over one more score by way of good measure. Minnesota was doggedly opposed, Kehlinlz Makes Gain, Russell Rebholz broke away for a 17-yard run to the Gophers' 10-yard line.

Besides the Inability to establish a motive, the police were faced with two more mysterious circumstances.

One of these was the disappearance of the black, felt hat with most of the rim cut away that Slvald was accustomed to wear while at work. When M. G. Bleed, watchman who came to relieve Slvald at midnight, discovered the dead man In an elevator on the fifth floor the hat was lylnir nearby. The top waa slashed as though with a hatchet.

Bleed said. When police went to pick up the hat, however, It had vanished. Not far from the placj where the hatwas supposed to be they found an old, tattered cap. Another puzzle was presented by the manner in which body was lying in the elevator. 'er pitching" the watchman into the shaft on the tenth floor, the killer apparently had come down, entered the elevator, through the roof which the body had crashed, and laid it out on the floor with the hnnds folded over the chest.

Signs Of a Fight. Although his duties ordinarily would not take him to the tenth floor, signs of acuffllng and a trail of blood proved that it was there that Sivald'a head had been crushed before he waa hurled down the ahaft to the elevator on the fifth floor.
