Herbtecht Addresses Religious Education Institute at Cresco .CRESCO, ifarcli .; 27.-- Chester church school workers · entertained the Howard county midyear Institute' for religious education Thursday with a. forenoon and afternoon program.

' Small Town Boys and Girls to Solve Crime, Claims.Judge Kenyon FORT DODGE, March 27. (£9-- America's crime problem will be solved by the boys and girls of the small town's and not by the police forces of the country, Judge William .S. Kenyon declared at a Y. M. C. A. * dinner here last night. "Country youths trained in Christian homes instead of. the jazz atmosphere of the dance hall," will be the nation's salvation, Judge Keny o a said, . . . ' . . :MUCH POWER HELD BY LEGISLATURES (Continued From F*gt 1. lowers occupy them, are rilled by those of .the faithful who are regarded as entitled to distinction of some sort, but whose abiUtiae or experience axe deemed insufficiently to Justify sending them to Albany. Tammany's theory is that the national capital is a place where, for reasons of civic pride, It is desirable . to. have . representatives with the .necessary.;qualifications to make a - At ibs state sap* . «:;ital'; it · wants gdrgetters. · . ^ ' The popular idea Is that the state t legislatures are preparatory schools i for congress. Tammany's Idea is Just the reverse. Having tried a man out in Washington and approved of him, Its. policy undoubtedly would be to promote him into the New York legislature, were it not for the fact that the chap himself probably would howl, mistaking promotion , for demotion/A Bill Vare would un. derstand, but BUI Vares are not numerous. . . . . · - · ' . /CONGRESS does..riot do as many ^- important things as one might · Imagine. It _ talk's i; about a great many but it is mighty seldom that it declares war or votes a constitutional amendment. There 'is 'too much pulling ail hauling; too many sectional arid other interests work- Ing In diverging, directions. ; State legislatures attain, more actual results. Folk like Bill Vare know this. Bill realized perfectly that he could be spared from congress for two years without making, any difference whatever, but when a matter that .concerned him was hanging fire in .Harrisburg he was conscious that it behooved him to be there and attend to it; Tammany is as alert as Bill. It can think of nothing that congress is likely to do materially to the .Tiger's prejudice or advantage. It can think of plenty that'the state legislature might dp one way or the other. · . » * * H ERE in Madison the other day the Wisconsin legislature voted an authorization to the state to engage in power production and sale whenever and wherever necessary to bring private power producers to terms' : by the competitive method. The incident illustrates the difference between Washingtonlan and state legislation. · · ' For a dozen years Senator Norris has been trying to force a similar experiment at Muscle Shoals, but either congress has turned It down or the president has Vetoed'it, as at the last session. · It takes a state legislature at last to initiate the test It should work just as well In Wisconsin as it would at Muscle Shoals. In fact, better, for It is a completer experiment. Senator Norris had to modify his to such an extent, to get a majority in its favor, that it is doubtful how conclusive it would have been. There will be no strings whatever on'Wisconsin's, · * * * ·TTHE beauty of state legislation ·* appeajrs to be that it is le^s cumbersome, because a legislature represents a compacter, more homogeneous unit than congress. . Once the time is ripe for a legislature to act, It is harder to delay indefinitely. ' Obviously that is why individuals like Bill Vare and organizations like Tammany are so everlastingly on 'their toes concerning- their state law-making bodies, whereas Washington simply is a social rallying place, for ail they care. j Rings Fancy stone rings set with sapphire, amethyst, topaz, ruby, · aquamarine and fancy rings r A with .rhinestone clusters...
