What niiiitt-rs is thai the roll-will on this bill oiijjht to end, tor goon, the straddling iu , which so many ton- trcssmen have been iii;!iil},'iir t ; where tho wel-tlry question is concerned. Congress, unfortunately, includes a certain number ol" cowards in its membership. They are the repre. ; ciH;Uives who hate a live, controversial issue more than they liate anything else on earth. They are always willing to take a decisive stand on any issue if they are sure that the.y know \Vliich way '.iwst of their co.MstiliiiMits feel iilxnil it.

But a lot of them h;ive never liceu able to satisfy themselves just how the people back homo vcsilly feel about prohibition. So they have .stradillccl. They have let the wets believe Hint li:t;y iire only wiiiting for a favorable thiiiii'i! lo co'mc out ojii'iily ngtiinsl prohibition; they have let tile drys believe that they are heart and soul for (he prohibition cause. 'Ilie vole on the iieck-l.inUiiaim bill is ijoing lo be tho most piiinfiil ililnis that has happened- lo slraddlcr.i in many years. For the lirsl lime since the prohiiiilion law went, into eli'eci, they will have lo declare themselves deliinlc'ly. They will have to come out in the open and say, once and for all, whether they are wel or dry. This may cause them pain, but it is a k'ood tiling for the nation as a whole. The straildler is u contemptible creature, and the nation suffers bec.in-c there arc so many of him, II is pleasant to watch him being forced to K (; t down off ll.lic fence—no mailer on which side he descends. —Hruce Cation.

I've, been reading a lot the last few years abc.ut "Back to the Farm Movement." and, also have heard a lot atoi^ the churches losing ground. So.

All cue hears may cr may not. be Hue. and. I suppose if it. is costing more nov. 1 then in limes gone by. it's because people' are demanding that their religion be given liiem in a. more expensive v;ay.
