Not Kidding Anybody In passing sentence of another two or more years of virtual idleness upon the huge investment which the American people have matte in the Muscle Shoals hydro-electric and nitrate plants Herbert Hoover professed to sec in the Norris plan some kind of a menace to our nation. "I hesitate to contemplate," said the •president in his veto message, "the future of our institutions, of our government, and of our country if the pro- ;qecynaljon of its officials is to be nn longer the promotion of justice and equal opportunities;. but is to be devoted to barter ,in 'markets. That is not liberalism; it is degeneration." The president is not kidding anybody. He is opposed to jeopardizing private profits by putting the government into competition with privat^ eup- ital, -amj» would rather see the public's investment at Muscle Shoals rot than to adopt the course advocated by Senator Norris. But why doesn't he Hay so, instead of talking rot about "preoccupation of officials" with the "promotion of justice and ejiuaj opportunities?" Why didn't! he/ think of that when the Hawley-Smoot tariff bill was before him? The fact of the matter is that the president of these United States is v;ry much concerned about "justice and equal opportunities" for some of the people, but is exceedingly indifferent to the fate of a whole lot of others. Manners Amwg Thieves There arc manners even among thieves, it appears. Mrs. Anna Nicho- OUT OUR WAY las, of Washington, D. C., was handed back the money and jewels which a man had tnken from her, when the man recognized her «s someone he knew. Evidently it wasn't in his code to rob people whose lives came in conlnct with his. So IOUK as he didn't know the party from whom liu was taking property lie had an impersonal attitude about it. This spirit is found in larger forms of banditry. Swindlers have been known to risk the money entrusted to them by thousands of unknown victims. The money was .something impersonal. If they had known the sacrifices and struggles hack of each fraud they might linvc been more careful. The human touch, to which moralists and teachers and preachers refer continuously, becomes a money saver, sometimes. > Now They Offer A Bribe of School Money. There can be no doubt Ihat the people of Arkansas nrc overwhelmingly opposed to legalizing race track gambling. There can be no doubt that Ihelr opposition is based on moral grounds—on severely practical moral grounds. They would therefore refuse to compromise their convictions for a money consideration paid the public schools of the slate. The advocates of race track gambling, seizing U[K)n \vhnt is general knowledge, that a "grave condition" confronts thc public schools, now hold before the eyes of the legislature and the public thc golden bait of a $100,000 race track revenue for thc schools. This amount, is not, however, guaranteed. The .race track advocates ivould be only human if they greatly overestimated the money the schools would get. I3W whatever thc amount that might be thus obtained, still more could be icallzcd by legal- i^hiij fnro aud roulette in open gambling houses, and Ihc use of such establishments to provide school revenue would be hardly less repugnant to public morals. We have been persuaded to tolerate Grctna Greens because they pay. We have b^cn made n competitor of Ucno bccausD a quick divorce industry is expected to pay. Shall we BOW legalize race trad: gambling in return for a bribe, of public school money? —Arkansas Gazeue. Then there's thc facetious dry cleaner \vlio advertised: "We're Johnny on thc spots."

A BLOODLESS VICTOKY On March 4, 1176, Ihe Americans, under Georgi Washington, occupied Dorchester Heights now South Boston, In ore of the most surprising maneuvers In the Evolutionary War. Throughout thc winter of 177570, want of artillery ami powder prevented Washington from doin? anything more than simply keeping: up the siege of Boston. However, when Genera! Knox succted- cd In dragging 50 cannon on ox- sleds from Tfconderoga to bridge, a distance of 200 Washington decided to aggressive. , He easily seized Dorchester llleighls and placed Us cannon ! into a position overlooking Bos- lon on the south. He then gave I General Howe, British commander, his choice of withdrawing his forces from the town or i having Itv battered by the cannon | Howe decided on the former alternative and ordered his nien to embark March 17 Ion Halifax. The following day Washington entered Boston in triumph The British had left it never to return. Congress voted Washington a geld medal to commemorate his bloodless victory.
