The Swing WdiCard Startling evidence of Ihe .sweeping change in sonlimenl townnl n:aioii;il IMohibition which Ims (;iken plat:; in the past yc-iir is fiiniisliccl by I he 1.1-M to 113 repeal vote of the iiiitumal American Legion convention yesler- dfty. A year ago, it will lie remembered, the Legion convention, by ;\ close vulj, weiit on record in favor of the legalization of beer of mild alcoholic content.' Yesterday Ijy an overwhelming vote the convention asked out right repeal _ of the national prohibition act and of the 18lh amendment. A year ago the Arkansas delegation to the American Legion convention was so dry that it cast its vote almost nn- ajiimously against even the mild heer proposal. Yesterday at I'orlland the Arkansas delegation voted 18 to I for repeal. The Legion is not alone in it; wet- ward swing. A few days ago .Maine, first American stnle to adopl prohibition, dry territory for over 80 years, and normally ono of the most solidly Republican states in the union, elected wet Democratic candidates over dry Republicans. A change is coming, ;md apparently it is coming sooner than the mo.-a sanguine anti-prohibitionist would have dared to predict twelve months ago. The Wrong Road With Htiey Long's desire to restore prnsnnriti- to the common people of America we are in hearty accord, but as regards his theory that all Dial is necessary to help the poor \ f to destroy the rich we have .serious misgiving.-;. . It appears even less likely to produce the desired result than the thoroughly discredited Hoover-Republican idea of taking care of the poor by so thoroughly loading Die rich man's table that some crumbs are bound ( 0 fall to the floor. Not confiscatory luxes, destructive of initiative and prmluclive effort, but elimination of special privileges and guarantee of participation in the rewards of productive activity by each on the basis of his contribution thereto are what are needed to achieve the desirable state of affairs Fought by the Louisiana king!L-h.

NEWS A Worthy Amendment One hit of }{o(id news Dial almost passed unnoticed in the t-rnsh of more spectacular doings was the fact I hat Texas recently added its ralilicalion to tlie lame diiclc umemlrncnl to the U. S. constitution. Tliis, of couwe, is (lie amendment which would advance iiie date of )iresi- dential inaugurali and congressional session openings from March to January, and which would, thereby, do away wilh thu c . v il ,,f ij>e "sliorl term" in which dei'eatcd cniiKi-essmen legis- liile I'or'llie c-cnintry ,-'ftci' having been rejecteil at the pulls. Fifteen stales lm\v now i-itliiie;! the amendment. Twenty-one mure must do so before the amendment goes into clfect. It is lo be hoped (bat tbe.-e 31 ratifications will lie obtained witn- ont delay dircinc the coming winkr legislative sessions. H is worth repeating, once more, that hero is an amendment which simply cannot be opposed on any ground except that of selfish parlisaii politics. There can bo no excuse for delX'aliijj; n, oY e\'en for delaying ratification.

F.rsl and Second B'.iiganan Armies was] An bon marche" . . through Advertising One of the largest department stores in Paris is named "Au Bon Marche." Translated, it means "at a bargain—cheap." Actually, "au bon marche" indicates to the French what a true bargain does to Americans—dependable merchandise at fair prices. When so many shops everywhere are full of merchandise on which the "price appeal" Is prominent, it is necessary that the wise shopper insist upon products of known value and proven merit. The clock that will not keep time is hardly a bargain at any price. Foodstuffs and drug-store supplies must contain pure ingredients and be prepared under hy- gemc conditions, lest they become not only cheap but dangerous. Wearing apparel at a mark-down is only a snare and a delusion if it lacks the quality that will result in wear. Wise shoppers, these days, are refusing substitutes, are weighing true worth against price appeal. I hey are using the advertisements in this newspaper as a shopping guide. When a merchant advertises ins wares consistently, you may be sure that he is telling the truth about them. Pie could not afford to do otherwise, even if he so desired. When a manufacturer of national scope appeals to you through these pages, you can believe and act upon his words "Au bon marche." Today advertising points the way to the only real bargains!
