BY RODNEY DUTCI1KR NEA Senkt Writer WASHINGTON, Great horfles of voters and an unprecedented number ol political leaders arc crossing over _party lines in Tuesday's cl^c- tirn, making It one of the most unusual contests' in history. Wet Republican voters will vote for wet Democratic candidate In large numbers. Many dry Democrats will vote for dry Republicans. | Republican progressive senators! are helping Democratic progre.wtve candidates. Republican bosses in such rock- ribbed states as Pennsylvania and Illinois have turned against, their party's candidates to support. Democrats. And no OIK knows how many dissatisfied voters will cast their balots for Democrats as a protest against business depression. Pennsylvania presents I h c strangest spectacle of scrambled politics ever seen. The bolting there centers mound one man, Gilford Pinchot, the dry, crusading progressive who has a passion for regulating public utilities and who won the Republican nomination for governor. Pennsylvania Is normally Republican by huge majorities, but so many Important leaders nnd groups have turned against the former governor as to make the election of John M. Hemphill, wet Democrat, a clodd- ed possibility. Wet Republicans Join Democratic Nominee A large group of Republicans who think more of their wsl sentiments than they do of their liavty regularity led the march into the Hemphill camp by forming the "Liberal Party" and making Hcmnhlll its candidate. Public utilities Interests lined up against PInchOl. Leaders of the powerful G. O. P. rnf.chine in Philadelphia Began to announce for Hemphill until now predictions are made lhat he will lose Philadelphia by from 100,000 to 200,000 votes. Republican National Committeeman, W. W. Atterbury. head of the Pennsylvania railroad, resigned his political job and gave up hop.? of reaching the 'U. S. Senate so that he might openly oppose Pinchot Contervatlve .business who UOHKItT ].

Parent-Teacher Association Interests and Activities THK PERMANENT PLATFORM OP THE NATIONAL CONGRESS OF PARENTS AND TEACHERS • 'flic Congress has adopted as Its jerinonent platform the seven objectives of education, (he simple s nlemcnt of which Is helping parents throughout the nation to understand belter the needs of boys and girls. These objectives have been arranged In different ways by various writers. Each Is Important nnd It Is hot easy, to say that one 1 s more, essential than the olhijr. The chronological or'der is Hie easiest to IIM. It Is so simple Hint almost anyone con remember it the first lime. Hfallli itnd Safety — When the child comes Into the world the first Mastery of Tools, Technics and Spirit of l.rarnlnc— At about tno nge of five Die child enters school where lit! teglns systematically to master the tools and technics cf Jcarnhig and where skilled teachers seek to build up the spirit of learning. Tlic modern school is America's greatest contribution, to the advance of civilization. Faithful Citizenship— Within the ixliool the child becomes conscious of. his participation In tlie larger groups. He learns to be fair with his fellows and to do his share to keep the schoolroom in oriler, to subordinate his impulses to the needs of others. These are the first essential lessons of . faithful citizenship. Vocational and Economic Effec- ethical character. In a sen?e it is the keystone of the arch. Each of these objectives to nil the others and it is po^.sibb to consider any one of them out of its setting in the total life of the child and of the community. This chronological order helps one to remember the objectives easily. Not until they arc thoroughly mastered do they become really effective to guide one's thlnklgg on educational values. They should be as familiar to every teacher, parent, and learner as the Lord's Prayer. Anyone may build Ills growth around these sever great centers with assurance that his life will be well rounded, rich in its interest, and secure In the highest success and happiness.

In the recognition and affection of these first expressions of volcd Republican all their lives branded the nominee as "a menace to business," Pinchot has a strange assortment of support. The drys and the pri'sress!v,35 are generally for him. So are many standpat Republicans such as the Mellons and Senalor Jce Ghmdy,; who has even been campaigning for him. Some labor leaders are trying to give him the "laor vole" while olhers try to de- liver'it to Hemphill. The Pills- burgh G. O. p. machine promised to stand by Pinchot. Pinchot. G. O. P. Dry, Gets Democnttb Aid Prominent Pennsylvania Democrats, -including Vance McCormldc nnd former Secretary of Labor William B. Wilson, have declared for Pinchot. Judge Eugene C. Bonniwell went on tlw stump for him and all the Democratic ticket except Hemphill, Insisting that half the Democrats of Pennsylvania would vote, for Pinchot. In other words, virtually every Important element, group or political party In Pennsylvania ha; split on Pinchot's candidacy except the extreme wets and ex trsme drys. Mrs. Ruth Hanna McCormick Republican candidate for the Sen ate in Illinois, is faced by three major bolts. First it was obvious that man; wet Republicans would vole for ih Democratic nominee, J, Hamiltor Lewis. Then Mrs. McCormick sa'.i she would vote\ wet or dry in ac cordance with the result of the 111 inols referendum. That caused th Anti-Saloon League to desert he and put an independent dry cand : date in the field who expects to de prlve her cf many dry Republtca votes. Finally Mayor William Ha Thompson of Chicago, who sup ported Ruth in the senatorial pr mary, got out 100.000 circulars urg Ing the negrces of the state to vo' against her.
