A Life Of Service THIS is a day in which the attainment of wealth, power, and position is our measure of success. Dun and Bradstreet are the jrreat biographers of the day. The sizes ot the estates lileri for probate arc the yardsticks for examining whether the individual has "made jjood." With the sordid values which are placed on life achievements today, it is inspiring to contemplate the career of Dr. JIarv Blakelidpe SauthofT who has just died after giving: 20 years in the service of humanity. We are living life in a fast and complicated tempo. The thing which we call civilization in its modern phase is making the old simple life a thing of the past. Todav we must be up - to - date. We must keep up with the machine. We must keep up with the complicated social and business codes of the day. Thousand? break under 1 he strain. The present tempo of society is throwing thousands of wrecks on the scrap heap pitiful figures who have become lost and confused in the present day whirl. To these unfortunates. Mrs. Sauthoff and her husband, Dr. August Sauthoff. have devoted their lives. Since 1908 they have been on the staff at the hospital over at Jfei.cic.ia ministering to the needs of those poor souls who are - no longer able to care for themselves. Some - day the literature of success will be turned toward careers like those of Dr. and Mrs. Sauthoff and service to humanity will become the real measure of a useful and successful life. Today every jchonl child knows the names Rockefeller, Morgan, Wrigley, and Ford. Ton few know 'the stories of those obscure and silent benefactors who have bent over microscopes and toiled in their laboratories to the end that the ills that effect the human race might be ameliorated. How many school children know the name of the Canadian scientist who has saved thousands of lives in the discovery of a serum .for diabetes'.' How many know of Pasteur who discovered the germ and revolutionized our whole approach to human disease? How many know of Gorgas who wiped out yellow fever and typhoid '.' How many know the story of Father Dutton who has given his life to the leper colony in Hawaii? Less distinguished, perhaps, but not less devoted. Dr. Mary Sauthoff belonged to that great company of men and women who hold service to humanity to be the great objective in life. Aside from her professional work, Mrs. Sauthoff was a charming woman. Her death has come at a time that is all too early. There is need as never before lor women of heV social outlook today. Thousands will regret to hear of her untimely death and will hasten to express their condolences to the bereaved family. Adam Smith Saw Monopoly Crushing Everything BACK IN 1776, Adam Smith, the founder of political economy, wrote in his "Wealth of Nations" some sentiments which are. worthy of consideration today because 'they so graphically portray a present day picture. Smith was a powerful i'oe of monopoly. He fought the monopoly interests which sought to entrench themselves by obtaining powerful special privileges from the government. In his "Wealth of Nations," Smith said: "The monopolists have become formidable to the government, and upon many occasions intimidate the legislature. The member of parliament who supports every . proposal for - trengthening this monopoly is sure to acquire not enly the reputation of understanding trade, but r popularity md influence - witn an cryvr ot ::,,. .v.:y.c::i ip.z renatr inj pi fteali Making Liirht By ERNEST Grumble Scat Papers tf The Record of a Journey to Canada and New York VIII OLD WOMEN WITH DOGS tT WAS HOT In New York, and I spent many ol I my hours in the park. One thing I liked about the park was that young couples could sit on ihe benches and hold hands and kiss unabashed and unmolested. Cupid is not a furtive creature in New York: he docs not have to resort to back stairs or parked autos. In the Midwest, especially in the smaller cities, ll a man spoons on a park bench he will discover, that all the world shoves a lover, But not in New York. The parks, t' - .c benches on Riverside Drive and the scats of the open - top buses are crowded with couple. - obviously feclms Blep.ru Glynish. The patrolmen and conductors do not interfere, and no outraged Grundy summons the sheriff. The public isn't, interested. The anonymity of the individual in the metropolis is at once terrify inc and beautiful. Though he counts no more than a dust - mote, which does not fiattrr his ego. he is not. harried by peepers and gossips, and this" is excellent. He can be himself because he doesn't exist. Not that. New York isn't as gossipy as Middle burgh or Madison. It is. But the New Yorker plays with "grander" characters. He can be excited by a - rX:, - ( - .:z:re okvybay, a Broad blue - blood.

Besides the lovers and the children and the unemployed in the park in Harlem, tnere were always with dogs, I had never Known trciuie manv lorn women and ugly dogs in the world.

You do not often sec old women with children and grandchildren walking In the PROnlv old women with dogs. They walk the maze of paths and do not. speak to each other. One dame .its on a bench and carries on.a long conversation with her doc. 'You had a hot day today, didn t you Prince?" Yes. I know. ' I can tell by the way your little tongue hangs out that this weather is bad on my little man. Never you mind. Prince, you U have some cool milk before you go to bed."

It was his keen insight that saved the state this, notwithstanding the' fact that this act had gone hrcnigh both the senate and assembly and then reached the aY lor the editor's remark that Mr. Lcvitan's life "holds no promise, for the future - " is it not refreshing to have a state official who is devoting hs energies to making his present office as efficient, if ,., . s manv in the state, Instead of laying his plans 'for holding bigger offices. They have his told that powerful manufacturers who employ thousands of men are the real builders of the state and that they are entitled to special favors in the shape of tax immunities and governmental exemptions. - Men who contend that there can only be general prosperity when the burdens of government are fairly and equitably distributed and when the farm - er. the laboring man, and the small business man are justly treated, are held up to contempt and ridicule by the organs of monopoly. They are branded as irresponsible, as ne'er - do - wells, in precisely the same manner as outlined by Adam Smith. ' TIE AD the above statement by Adam Smith again and then recall what Robert M.

This condescension upon the part of those born to the purple should be gratifying to the people of the state and probably will be received with acclaim and rejoicing. Such thnuBhtfiilnCss for the rights of the other 70 counties in Wisconsin shows a magnanimous disposition upon the part of the Progressives that ought to attract the love and admiration of the common people for them. It Is one of their most kindly and magnificent, gestures. Those inclined to belittle their motives may think that light is beginning to penetrate, but that is probably a mistaken notion. . Light is not strong enough. Green Bay Press Gazelle. ' ' The congressional search for Communists among public school children is treated with the derisioi it dcicrves by Pres. Glenn Frank of the University of Wisconsin. Dr. Frank asserts that those' who profess to see the menace of communism In our public schools are "seeing thing under the bed at night," and points out soundly that national safety will be far more effectually promoted through the expenditure of time and energy in the development of Americanism rather than in a sacred defense of Americanism. Even if American youth were In danger of becoming inculcated with a communistic philosophy, it is difficult to see how the situation would be improved through the spectacle of a congressional committee making an investigation. The creation of this congressional committee, which is now sitting in Chicago Ltnd listening to such drivel as the attack of a representative of the American Intelligence Vigilantes upon a former University of Wisconsin student, is without doubt one of the best breaks the professional agitators have had in years. We venture the guess that whoever gets credit in Moscow with having inspired the investigation will be in line for some sort of accolade. Milwaukee Philip La Follctle's campaign for governor is complicated by the double - crossing of Alvin C. Rcis by the Madison organ of the Progressive Republican faction. The sincerity of the Progressive leaders is in question. Will the La: Foliett.es and Blaine accept this politician's play , for offices, or will they stand up for the man who has made a record as a Progressive? . Philip La Follette might have gone along without expressing an opinion between Reis and Reynolds, if Mr. Evjue's political organ had not shown Its hand by ditching Rcis for political expediency. But the Madison paper has been so closely identified as the mouthpiece of the La.

He has carried the load; he is the kind of man the reactionaries really fear.

Mr. La Follette has been chosen as the candidate of his faction for that honor. Is it. now the plan to go farther still and sidetrack Rcis for Atty. Gen.

It was under his capable administration that the Milwaukee archdiocese had its greatest development both in the church and parochial school activities and property. The intense interest the archbishop took in current affairs was evidenced many times by his public statements on issues of national import, The deep affection and regard in which he was held by all who .knew him was reflected by the testimonial dinner given him upon the observance of his golden anniversary by over 60(1 Milwaukccans of all creeds. His death marks the passing of one of the. ablest and most prominent church dignitaries of his faith in this country.

The endorsement of Attorney General John Reynolds by The Capital Times instead of adoption of a; neutral attitude as between Reynolds and Alvin Reis is but one of a number of open breaches in Progressive ranks, and there are others not. so open but still recognizable. In the Ninth congressional district, in which Langlade county is included. Mayor W. C. Sullivan of Kaukauna has come out in opposition to Rep. George Schneider. As a Blaine man he will draw no. votes from the conservatives, who are expected to pu'. their own candidate into thIield. now that the opposition is divided. The bitterness that has been aroused between Progressives in the Sixth district by Harry Schlcrf, private secretary of the late Cong. Lampcrt. taking the field against Philip Lcnher, choice of a Pro, - grcsslvc conference, is indicated by the fact that ' Thomas P. Hayden, chairman of the - conference, charges that the Schlcrf candidacy was sponsored and financed by the conservatives. The rejoinder of Mr. Schlcrf, when it comes, wiU fan the flames of dissension still more. Antlgo Journal. The Antigo Journal Is one of the Money Ring's faithful spellbinders In Wisconsin. It docs about as much groveling and kow - towing at the shrine of wealth as its neighbor over at Merrill the Daily Herald. The Antigo Journal, too, has been beating the editorial tom - toms endeavoring to create dissension, within the Progressive ranks. The picking isn't so good this year with the solidarity back of the candidacy of Phil and the fact that the Kohlci' campaign doesn't seem to be clicking. The attempt of the Antigo Journal to write the obituary of the Progressive movement isn't very convincing. Ict's see, didn't these old faithful stalwart papers write the death knell of the Progressive movement when L Follette supported Lenroot for governor years ago and Lenroot was defeated? .
