The world had a gUnjpse of .the despotic nature of- the governirtent that now is rulins Uussia when . = annoimcemcnt was made that Trotsky, Zin6vief and half a dozen othisrs of the most prominent inen in Kussiahad been banished to different and remote parts of the cO.untry for no other crime than that of opposing the njcasures of Stalin, tl^e man who is novr "head of the. Communist party in Kussia. These men are banishsd IiecauHc they ar.e| "opi >ositionist8". and the ' CommuniBls do not permit the existence of an opposing • party. .N'o sympathy will be felt for TrotKky and his crowd, for iwhen they held the power they f.xercised it as ruthlessly asStaliii now exercises his. But th^ incident shows the extent 16 which liberty has been banished from Russia.; : Another illustration of the same trutli comes in a letter from a group of Russian writers, sniug- • ^ gled across i the border and • published in Paris, a copy of whicli lies on our This letter asserts that every manuscript. writtcn| in Russia must be submitted to the censor. f If. he permits ^publication then proofs must also be sent him. And iif. there^ has been the slightest ; change, even Huch a change as writing a capital "0" ill-the word '- "Odd", the whole edition is ruth- -. lesHly suppressed. Nothing can be published without the ajpproval of the censor, not even te.\t bonks on chemistr>', astronomy or 7iiathemat- ' ics.. One cannot have ,a visiting card printed without making a spe: cial application will) state .stamps _ : affi .\e (l. Kvcn sudi placards as ,'"Smoking Prohibited," '"Emergency Kxit," etc.; ijsed in theatres can not l)c printed without the approval of the censor. Here are "the closing paragraplis ; of this remarkable better: • "We have trodden tlii .-i path to the-Golgotha of the nations, and %ve warn you of its perils. We 'are .perishing. The cOmIng dawn of liberation is not yel in Hi ){lit. .Many of us are no Irtiger cupable of - jiasHing on to iwsterlty the terrible fxporiences we have lived-through.

'We are sendiug this letter as front u subterranean dungeon. - At - great risk ue are writing' U; It 'will be <:arricd across the border . "SlITiTV FIJWT? When the' "Safety FIrat". campaigns were firat :8tarted by the railroads and the great industrial plantR, a good many were inclined to ridicule them as a futile gesture which could have no prac^cal results'. . But that attitude no longer prevails anywhere. There can be no qucBtion that as ai direct result of these safety campaigns hundreds of lives are saved every year and thousands, perhjaps iniilions, of dollars. One of the gi-eat industries which has Tmade a: particularly gratifying sucbess of its safety work is the Pdrtland Cement Industry. Before the campaigns were started It -was. taken for granted that numerous accidents would occur Jn the great ceinent mills and it Was not believed they could be averted. JBut the report from the Cement Association, just at .hand, shows that during 1927 ten mills operated throughout the entire year without a single lost.j time accident. One of these mills was the plant of the I«high Port- laud Cement Company here at lola. A whole year witii not a man hurt badly enough to cause hihi to lose a day's time. It is a fine-record, and It will be rewarded by the receipt of the Portland Cement Association's-safety trophy. This is an eight-ton sculptured ononument which willbe erected in front of the lola plant where it will stand as a perpetual reminder, not only of a victory won. but also of a duty owed, the duty so well expressed in the slogan, "Safest/ First."'

I Then, like our great aulhor, ;I..eo i Tolstoi, di<l of yore, you will • cry aloud :U6 the wiiole .world _ -cannot belsilent:" . f This letter was dated May 7. 1^21. The fact that only now is it made • public shows with what ctifficiilty ' 1 it was spirited out of llie "dun- I 'geon" in which it \ was whiten. It 'reads more like a: reminiscence of jthe day.s of the Inquisitioh than f . like a'connnunicaiioh from-a country calling itself civilizod ;in this .20jh centjtiry. : ; - ; The original manuscript of Con. jtabert E. Lee's i^arcwcll .address _ to the Army of Nortji.crn Virgiriia has come to light and an expert in the Library of Congress | dcclarps ~ that it lakes rank as "one of Arii- -:erica's most valuable dpcliments, .fit" to bi.' prcKcVved w-jtli Hie orip-, i- .Inal'of the Declaration [of Independence and the Constit;ution of • the United States." It is loo bad .we could not hear from somebody who-is really an enthusiasil on the Bubject of General Lee and the Lost Cause! IX THE toAYS NEWS. Dr. Charles Greeley Abbot, who has been advanced to the foremost position in natural science in the United' States, the secretary­ ship of the Smithsonian Institution, has been assistant secretary of the institution for the past ten years and has an international reputation in scientific circles. Dr. Abr hot first joined the staff of the Smithsonian Institution in 1895 and in 1907 he succeeded the late Dr. Samuel P. Langley as director of the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory at Washington. In late years he has done much to advance our knowledge o!f the sun, especially on the subject of the amount and I variability of the solar radla- lionl on which allaniinal and plant life on the earth idepends. He has conducted several expeditions to study solar eclipses and has.made frequent journe.vs, abroad to confer with foreign scientist^. Dr. Abbot is a native o^ New Hampshire. Roger Bahson: The lesson which I have learned in thirty business years is that management is the most important factor in business, and that tlie character, ability and business habits of the men in control are far.niore iiiportant than the balance ' sheets or earning statements. The 'latter show only what has taken place up to the present time; but the fori^er indicate what may be expected iu the Paul Jone.s is an old line Democrat, Clark Conkling is a "forward looking" Bcimblican. Dutch Shuitz is a standpat Republican r and all. of them will write what he pleaSe* for the Lyons Dally News during- tiic coming campaign. Which probably means that one-third of the readers ,of the News will be mad two-thinls of the time. Faced with the . alternative of n'rtminsting AI.

It is to just such pass that the violent speeches of Senator Heflin are bringing the Democratic party. Spanish Is the language of Cuba and president Coolidge doesn't speak it.

"Because be thought of the people first, of their needs, of how he could senre them most helpfully, economicaHy. honestly, and of profit last, they thought of hfm first wiien shopping was to b; done, and the business grew." The grc^wth of the Standard Oil Compar.y (Indiana) has bier, a closely parallel case. This Company has put ser>.-jce jfrsi and profits last.'

But in both cases money making repres<ints the smallest part o< the achievement Service—liaching to ail people and all places in the Middle West—the same service for all, whoever they are. wherever they live—service that . never fails from day to day alndfrom week to week and from year to year—service that is expanded to meet expanded needs, improved with improved knowledge-^that sort of ser-.-jce is the aim and the achievcmeJitoftheStandardOil Company (Indiana).
