Perhaps no oi-ganization has ever existed without rebels within its own ranks, thosc^ who cleave to member, Khip because they support the" pur- ipcses for which the organization is -^•idos'igncd. but who continually find ifault with the manner in which it ' is being run or the personnel of ' those in charge. Church members find fault-with the pastor, lodge members think their dues are not being spent right, chamber of cpm- " me^ce members wonder why the of- llcers don't bring industrii -i to town, farm bureau members accase the agent- of everything from laziness to favoritism, club members razz the progrjm committee, in^nine cases out of tun. the rebel might better find fault with himself tlian any- (;nc cL'^l', but he't need to: there i.s alway.-j an officer, board of - dlrcctorii, or cpmmittee iiixjn whlclt lie can conveniently lay the blame. But what arc the rebels going to the lola Communly club that mtets to elect officers and form Its • membership roll next Monday night? Ujion wliom are they going to lay the blame for the things that don't suit them? ' There is rip board of directors, there are no standing committees, and practically the only l)o\ver the officers have is to. caU meetings of the membership. No business can be ti'ansacted except by • Vote of the membership. If things are not being "run" to suit any / member, whom can he blame? ; The ' "rtinning" can be done only by the members themselves in a meeting at which eacli has an eaual vote ~and an equal opportimity to express his opinion. Is it actually possible that a form of organization has iseeh conceiyed which ''cannot develop dissenters within the ranks? If that is true, the lola Commim- iiy club; is getting off to the most" frlicitous start any orgaiiization could hope for. Its pirogress sliould. ~' be watched with the keenest interest because'if it succeeds, if it actually fimctiohs and does things, it will be ,•1 Vindication of the most radical de- jiarture from the ordinary form of u civic cJiib .set-up that has ever come to the attention o'f this paper. It goes without saying that The nogister hopes it succeeds and tliat ; it heartily recommends a member- Kiiip to cverj' busitiess maii in lola. No one can be too poor to afford the dues of $1 a year and no one can be loo 10 afford the two hours or .so a month that active participation _ in ihe club's activities will require. It should not be forgotten that now is tlic time above all others wlien a, civic club should be func- j. lioning busily and actively.. Three ' years ago it was npt half so, important; almost anybody could make a go of lus business then. It is now that evfry conceivable opportunity must b4 grasped if tlie ^p is to be kept afloat. tariff. In this country, for example, Uie price of sugar could be raised to 25 cents a poimd over night if the gpfvermment l^iketbe tariff jyiat much. If Apierj^n famiKs want<$6 raise the j>.iice of wh^t^^b^ is lOQly oi way in the world they can do it and that is to produce, or at least offw for sale, less wheat thfin 1febe ;Cflunr try consumes. The price immeiuate- ly Advances the full-extent of the 42-,cent tariff; it can't do anything else. The fanner i.s in a technlwri ppsi- tion that few if. any manufacturers enjoy. People don't, have to buy automobiles, but thoy do have to eat. If the automobile mannfac- turer decides to force up the price of automobiles by withholding them from the market, he sjraply goes broke. No conceiyable shortage of automobiles could' force peppJe into paying twice what they are now paying ifpr automobiles, put the price of wheat could be .trebled or quadr rupled if the supply were sufficiettbljj restricted and buyers would fall over each other trying to get it. j i Frqm a theoretical standpoint, the Hoh^ay idea is sound as a school text on economics. Prom a prftctical standpoint, its great'weakness, of cquise. lies in the necessity of enlisting almost ,100 per cent coroperation.,before the plan could be made effective. It is of no avail-to restrict the .whpat offerings of Nebraska if Kansas fanmers pw- tinue to flood the mariwts ,with ev ery bushel they can produce. It jdoesn't help Kansas to ;cut d^iry production if Wisconsin continues tP feed and milk every cow in the state. If farmers want a miracle to XMre the depression, let^t^m.,wpi;k t^e^r own miracle; let Uxem ALLJoand together under some such plan as this and actiialiy carry it put. It waiUd be litUe shprt of a miraple—for six million farmers all to agree to the same idea-^ut it .>5rpUld work. CONVEBPMONESBS. A type of B,abbit tl^at the erudite take great delight in poking fun at is the.Conventioneer, the lad who never misses a convention of any .organization he belongs to if he can possibly help It, who is always wandering around in some strange town with a fez or a cane or a hat band or a badge. A few such may well be razzed— or pitied. Victhiis of the well known jiiiferiority complex, they embrace this gentle vice for the satisfaction pf Being Somebody mice ,1 n a while away from home to compensate for being nobody at all at home. But most Conventioneers qare wiser than the cynics who scorn them. They attend conventions for the one simple reason that at each one there are a few friendships to be "feept in repah-." friends far too precious to lose but to far away to visit, friends that would not be -seen frpm pne year's end to the next if it w.eren't for the opportunity afforded by a convention. •Reduced to its simplest tenns, life, after all, is little more than fqpd and friendships. The taan who keeps his friendshiiis in repair is no fool.

Fr»m Other Papers THE FARMERS HOLID.^Y ASSOCIATION. . The theory upon which the Farmers Holiday association is built'can riot bp questioned in it& soundness. It is simply tliis: let all farmers in [ the \counlry band together in an agreemi'.nt not t^ sell their products at the present disastrous prices but hold them on their farms and off the'market imtil that price is forced • u]] to a. level that is at least above ' the cast of production. This is the only "price fixing" .scheme for farm products that could ever possibly work. The gojvemmeht , can't dp it, but the farmers can. French farmers right now,are getting about S1.75 a bushel for their wheat for the simple reason that ~ they raise less wheat thin IPrance consumes. Since Jwheat must b^ imported, it is the simplest thing in the wcirld for I the government to "fix" tlie price at any level It chooses >l.Qd «enUzing Couijities.

Travel conditions in tlu^se days de- terminejd the size of counties. Hlesi- dents of these areas simjdy *re supplied with more government than they need. It is one pf the preseht- dax burdeiisome surpluses. The'con­ solidation of counties aoi^ is not an easy matter and is being attempted only here and there. But helpful savings can be made by tl;^ consolidation of officers and other agencJeis to serve two or more cotmties. That is the purpoise of t>yo bills now introduced in the Ifai^ajj legis- latiu'e by Senator Rees' 0:f Lyon county.
