Elect By Direct Vote When Alfred E. Smith, in the new magazine which he edits, apponls for abolition of the antiquated electoral college and the election of presidents by a direct popular vote, he is simply calling for a qlinngc in our political system which is long overdue. The electoral college, 'it must be ro- mtmbered, was put into the C'onslitu- tion in the ;fivst place in order to take the election of 'a president ns far away from, the people as was possible in a democracy. The.electors were to deliberate ami vote as freely as the •U. S. senate; even today, legally, they could go directly counter to the wishes ;of the people who elected them. That function of the electoral college, however, has long since been forgotten. It is a rubber stamp and it serves no good purpose. Why not abolish .it and elect our presidents by a direct popular vote? It is hard to find a valid argument against it. Will History Repeat Itself , The big need of the world today seems to be the introduction into industry and commerce of some force ns far-reaching and profound in its effects as wns steam power when it was first brought into general.use. j No one who surveys the state of the world can fail to see the striking parallel which exists between these times and the distressed period that followed the close of the Napoleonic •wars. Then, as now, all of the world's leading nations were trying to recover from a prolonged and expensive war. Man-power had been cut down at an appalling rate; government debts had soared almost to astronomical figures; trade was stagnant and every land had hordes of jobless men; British mobs surged through London streets, exactly as they have been doing this fall, breaking windows and fighting with the police. There seemed tq be no way out. A thoughtful- Englishman of those days could have been excused for believing that the collapse of civilization was at hand. But it wasn't. The age of steam power was just dawning. An entirely new force was projected into 'industry and trade. Factory production was OUT OUR WAY enormously increased, new markets were found, new trade routes were opened—and presently, a sick and discouraged world found that business was better than ever before, that the debts which had seemed so alarming could be paid easily, that the hordes of unemployed could be put to work at higher wages than ever before. The world situation today is strikingly like that of the post-war era following Napoleon's exile to St. Helena; so much like it that if you read a description of those days by a contemporary writer you will find it hard to r believe that you arc not reading something written in 1932. Hut what new force can we look to for salvation? Arc we on the verge of introducing into our economy something as upsetting and revitalising as steam power proved to be a century ago? Any genius who can inject such a factor into the tangled world cqim- tion today can expect to receive the ardent thanks of every nation on earth. , —Bruce Catton. "Dixie Most southerners believe that tlie name "Dixie" was Inspired by the sons. The southern section of the United stales derived Us nickname us most nicknames are Cushioned, by chance. When the word "Dixie" is mentioned we think of that part of Die country made famous by- sentimental traditions, where hot blood courses through the veins of "southern gentlemen," where the skies aic blue, and life Is casual. But none of these things Inspired ihc nickname. Money gave the South ita nickname. Ten dollar bank notes were the principal bills issued by a bank In New Orleans before the war. Tliey v/ere engraved la English on one side and French an the other. On one side was printed "Dlx," which menus ten In French. Southerners were not familiar with the pronunciation so they called them "Dixies" and Louisiana became to be known ns the "Land of Dixies" or "Dixie Land." This inspired Dan Einmett to compose n sons entitled ."Dixie Laud" for a minstrel. Since that time the Mississippi valley tins been known as "Dixie Land" or "Dixie." —Pine Bluff Commercial.
