Action Is Needed The \vi\y woninn sulTrsitJc o|>enilcs in the Shmvticc school district, where lius- baiulq vote twice to save their wives Hie trouble, no doubt seeim un excdl- lent solution of an annoying problem to some of us \vho huve suffered from the habit many wives have of splitting the family vole. While acknowledging the (ulvanlages of Mich » system, however, we ought to remember Ihul the practice under our present laws is just another reflection of the loose : mcthods followed in the conduct of miiny of our elections— methods which destroy con- fidenec in thq ballot box iiml OIICD the \vuy to actual fraud. So bad has the situation become Unit it ^s .in-obaUlo careful investigation would reveal irregularities in llic conduct of elections at most of the polling places in Mississippi county. Election officers, all too often, feel little of the high responsibility that is placed upon them, and careful enforcement of the legal requirements for nualilicd electors is all too rare, In most eases we believe our elections arc honestly if carelessly conducted. When we say that iiregulurilics could be found at'iiiosl boxes we do not mean that conscious wrong doing on the part of either election officers or. voters is u common thing. But carelessness and lack of thorough attention to the • requirements of the law create an opportunity .for those who would steal elections, and there arc indications that efforts along that line have been made a number of times in this county. Saturday night two members of the county! board of education, rosjionsiblu men who would not peddle idle gossip, made the public statement that there were at least six instances of apparent duplicate voting in the; recent school election. Well known citizens of the comity were listed in the poll books as voting both all their home boxes, Shawnee, Pecan Point and Nodena, and at Wilson. They have denied voting in Wilson, and they are men and women whose word is to be accepted. It inevitably follows that ballots were marked by other persons, and false names entered in the poll books.- The board of education was in doubt Saturday as to its authority to go into OUT OUR WAY the matter without the filing of u formal contest by one of the Candida tew. All voters and lli<> public at large, as well as the candidates, have an interest in such a matter, and it is unfortunate if the board cannot act. Whatever the powers of the .board may be, however, Information enough has been obtained to indicate cause for further Investigation by the prosecutor and the grand jury. s •. We need more cure in the conduct of our elections, and we need criminal action against any who would taltc advantage of cari'lL'ssncJis and loose methods, to practice fraud.

He has held consistently that ail that made it lu:k big after the war, when handicapped b^ the Fordney- McCumber tariff, was the gre^l t automobile export, trade and the fact tiiai we \i'?rc iencliiig 15 billion dollars abroad which we were paid for with onr own gocds.

The logic of ils fact Is easily understood. Sometimes parents want a child replace an Infant that lias been jst, In which case they endeavor i duplicate the physical and siip- rflclnl characteristics without Ting sufficient attention to the iciUali'.y and the heredity.

It Is in:j:ort£mt to remember rom the p:;nt of view of heredity hat the child is not only the di- ect descendant of its parents but lie suiti of all of the ancestry of oth for hundreds of years liack. Moreover, mlure has oxtraordin- ry ways in t'nat it suddenly pro- ccls a black shrc[> into n thor- luglily good family, and raises great statesmen, multimillionaires and inlcllectiiil giants out of mud leaps.
