Lesson In Democracy Nothing Hint has happened in this country in ypai'j more interesting insignificant than -until is going on in Chicago today. The second largest city in America has skidded into an utlcvly iisLouiuling condition.. Its income liar, been cut off, it, is upwards of §275,000,000 in debt and II cannot borrow any more, and no permanent relief is in sight. On lop of this gang warfare has flared up again as of old, and the police seem just us powerless as ever in the face of it. Thus Chicago, at last, is galhurlng the full fruits of misrule. It is paying, in a very unpleasant way, for the fun of electing officials whose <|iialifici»- tions for the jobs they sought were 'rather less than adequate. Furthermore, the remodios thnl Chicago is preparing lo apply hint nt very disturbing possibilities. •To cure her financial ills, a committee of leading business men is inepar- i.ig to lend the city money eiiounh lo keep it going—provided that they can supervise all expenditures. . To get its crime in hand, another group of business men is organizing a ' sprt of vigilance committee, in the hope that it can do what {he police cannot. 'Both of these steps nro necessary. The city government has, to a certain extent, broken down. Chicago is lucky in possessing pr' men who nrc wi. rescue. ; Yet it is not si from these two i ship by big biisin lion put ti]i with luiarchy for months —until n group of cili/ens biindud together under Mussolini, over-riding constitutional limitations, and established a dictatorship which i> still in power. Now it would l»! ab-invi lo say that Ihc same thin;; is going (o take place c in Chicago. lint it i.s not at nil absurd to sfi'y that Chicago has got dangerously near the puiiu where such a thing might liappi'iO Democracy is .--aft) (.'iiuu^'h in this country MS long us the voters slay awake and use their brains lint Chicago's plight is an example of the path that events will follow when Hi; electorate gets careless. 11 is an object lesson for everv city in the nation.

I "What's the News" When Columbus and his caravels returned from the New World, the first question shouted from the shore was, "What's the news?" That's always the question of paramount importance. Years ago folks asked it of the post rider, the soldier returned from the wars, the man who had "been down to the settlements, or the neighbor back from the general store. Today, you find the answer in your newspaper. Through the newspapers the news of the world and of the community quickly becomes public knowledge. And remember this—it takes two kinds of news to make a modern paper complete. The first tells of happenings near and far—of fires, sports, elections, accidents, marriages, deaths, great men, great events. The second tells of things you eat, wear and use— things you buy, things, being sold to your friends and neighbors. This news is advertising. It's just as important to keep up to date on the advertising in this paper as it is to read about what's doing in the world of events. Ad vert sin ff is un essc?itial news service, It is distinctly to your advantage to be f/uided by it.
