DECATUR HERALD THURSDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 9, 1930. OECATUR HERALD H E R A L D ' S P A G E O F I N T E R P R E T A T I O N A N D O P I N I O N E d i t o r i a l s Does anybody happen to,know why It In thnt the drivers ot Perdu appeal' to have rooro Important business, ft ml to bo In a more cluspm- «t* huwy than anybody on the roiwl? All things are comparative, and one or tho mo«t enthusiastic devotees of poewoo golf speaks to u« patronizingly about our own favorite gamp M "over-atxe golf." * A CHEAPER GAS Jusl what natural ga» may mean to a city fortunate etougri to obtain this fuel Is indicated by a'lively contest BOW being waged in Columfcuj. Ohio, Columbus Itat long enjoyed the benefit* of niilural gas distribution, ihe «u being pip«l f'«n *t\\* '« southern Ohio and West Virginia. Now, the local utilities company, which owns the Colutnbut distributing tystcm, is pclitiomng for an increase in rate, and ihe people arc opposing the raise with nil their If tlie rate increase goe* into effect, the Columbus householders will be obliged to pay 55 cent! a thousand f«t fo» the giw with which they fire their fuinncfs this winter! Heretofore, they have received it for 48 cenls a thousand, 7 he increase « n lubttantia] one, atitt it is efciy enough to understand why folks who have leen getting ga; for 48 cents should feel outraged when they are nsked to pay 55. For a ctiiwn of Decatur' who pays $1.35 a thousand tcet for the small quantities of manufacture! gaj he feeh he can afford, the battle against a 55 cent wit looks like a theoretical warfare, If gas is brought into Dccwtur from Texas fields, we can hardly liqte for a rate of 55 eenK The distance it must be trrtinporled is loo great; the inveilmcnt in pipe line and pumping station! too gigantic.

Tor, since neither party in such an argument has any accepted foundation of f,»ft upon which lo base a structure of reason, talk goes around an endless circle and nobody i* ever convinced Whnt i* the nctunt effect of prohibition? "Why, there n more drinking now than there was before", declares a wet spokeiman. He hm no convincing evidence to support the claim, "The number of drinkers in this country has been iwluced froth 25.000.000 to a mere 4,000,000" ·ays n lady of the W. C. T. U. Site has no convincing fvidenee to support the statement. "Drinking ha practically disappeared", says a Decn- tur preacher: "only a handful of criminals and the smart set ever see liquor." He himself never sees any, and his conclusion n excusable, hut it id not reliable evidence. r?ro(, Irving Fi«her. ihe great statistician of ihe drys, draws an elaborate set of chnrts to show that prohibition is 75 per cent, effective. The Association Oppo«d to Prohibition produces jlnlkicnns who try to show lhat (he country is drowning m alcohol. All such claims and cdimter-claims are for a partisan purpose, which alone » enough to destroy their weight as authority, and none of them is prepared by an author who has access to alt ^he f«l». Small wonder there is so tit- il« progress townrd aoreemwn upon prohibition, when nobody yet know« jwiKyhal prohibition is. or does! Now, for the lusl lime, more appears to be a serious effort to establish a basis of fact, for the uoderitanding of this question. The inquiry 11 opt made by an enemy of prohibition, determined to maljgii it at my cost. Neither, * apparently, is it made by a partizan friend, who is anxious to support it by deceit. The authority is no other than Col. Amos W, W, Woodcock, chief of prohibition enforcement for the United States. Announcing a firm intention, not to construct an argument but to find the truth, Mr. Woodcock instructed his agents to make a careful survey and report. They examined the quantities of^mall extract made and sold, the volume of alcohol withdrawn from stores, the capacities of stilii that have been found, the press of wine grapes. They deducted the amounts known to have been used in a legal manner--and they were left with * conclusion that the people of the United States obtained last year 876,320,718 gallons of illicit liquor, or something more than seven gallons for every man. woman and child in ihe population. Here for the first time is evidence, derived from no p.irtiian source but from dispassionate Government authority. "With this baiis of ascertained fact to go upon, the debate as to the merits of prohibition may proceed, upon a higher plane than in the past. If the Brazilian;! tca.il some of the glories that comu out about the American Legion convention, it's^golng to bo harder than ever to convince them that thov ovight to Rive up revolutions, and go In for law und order, Principal difference between a Legion convention and a $rood many others probably IB that the Legionnaires dont care who knows It.

If there are no screws, and there usually are not, nails will have to do. If there are not enough nails, they may be supplemented with tacks, ono tack plus one nail that Is too long being equal In tensile strength to two nails of the proper S!M An the male ascends the ladder, convention requires that the captain and coach should warn him to be careful not to fall. Then If he does fall It may be attributed to bis own carelessness. The male now proceeds to look for a spot In the corner of tho woodwork above tho window which has not been previously staked out with nails by earlier generations of curtain hangars, 'Should such a spot be found, the nailing may begin. The hanger will discover that the projection of tho hook successfully blocks hitting the nail exactly on the head. He should remember to keep his eye on the nail and alao to follow through. This will reduce the tendency to pull or hook Itls *hot, \ Nails, aa a rule, are spineless affairs and bend under tho pressure of blows, especially when ttruek on their flanks. There is no use wauling valuable time trying to straighten them. If they refuse to penetrate to the head, they should be flattened out where they are to serve «· on example to other recalcitrant nails Meantime, the female, It the hammer has not fallen on her head, will have run the curtain rod through the hem of the curtain and will be ready to present curtain and red t* tho hanger, who will place the rod on th* hooks, The hanger now descends from the ladder and aesumea the po- sltion of "parade rest" while the female looka at the lob and decides that the curtain Is crooked.

All lessons and learning are suspended for three dayi of the week. The immense Deoatur school system that It operated at on average cost of something like $fi,000 a day will not succeed la teaching- one child to ·pell "c-s,-t" during the time it I* consuming some 115,000 of the taxpayers' money, Th* school year opened last month. The teachers returned, presumably fresh and eager to b« about their work, after a vacation of three month*. Yet we find tfiftt during one month and a. few odd days, teachers' meeting* of one sort or another have necessitated Ui* dtsmlMol of the children for a total of six day*. These meetings doubtless ore conducted for a good and necessary purpose; they are doubtless an excellent thing, promoting the professional knowledge «f the teachers. Reading a newspaper account of the Institute, we gather that th« Mtttnbled teachers heard some eminently sensible t»U» about their business. But why, we are still minded to ask, should It be necessary to conduct them at times that compel a suspension of all the real business of the schools? ( Teachers wotk upon the basis of a five-day week; they have a vacation of three months in summer for rent and professional advancement; they enjoy liberal -fey-offs for ·It holiday*. Given a regular schedule so rich In leisure, what factory manager, what merchant, what lawyer, what worker In any other business under the sun, would imagine that meetings of the trade association must also be deducted from tho limited working time? Lest there be misunderstanding, let us hasten to e*y that our queries upon this subject constitute no reflection upon the Decatur school board. The situation Is not local, but Is common to the state, and probably to many states. It cornea down to us out of the hoary post. We suspect Indeed, that its very antipathy may explain Its existence, Older generations In Illinois looked upon schools and school attendance o» a sort o fnon-essentlol luxury, A boy was sent to school only when there was no corn shucking, plowing, aeeillng, cultivating, or any otber useful task he could be put to at home, A girl went to school because ·he was not good for much of anything at any time. What were the odds If school closed down for a day, a week, or even a month? Today, wo have a notion that schools are an Institution of a good deal of Importance; of Importance enough to warrant spending- on them more than $5,000 a day dui- Ing 36 weeks of tho year, in a city the sltt of Decatur, We have) an Idea that there la a great deal the young person needs to know, in order to have B. fair chance to get along In our vastly complicated society We observe, indeed, that In spite of all the schools can do, the amount of learning too commonly proves Inadequate to the need. It seems to us altogether possible and desirable to conduct institutes and other professional meetings ot teachers during the numerous vocations, -without Interrupting the studies of thousands ot pupils and the routine of thousands of homed, Hop growers of the United State* constitute one group of farmers that stand In no need of re- Ikif. More and more hops ore being grown from year to year, but the price hoc remained eteady and nobody is telling the producers to reduce their crop. Nearly all the crop Is consumed at home, ac- fording to Government report, freeing the producers from dependence upon world markets. Since the Invention of corn sugar, and the dls- covery of an enormous market for this commodity, it Is observable that the price of corn has remained consistently more firm than that of other grains What this country needs, apparently, In th» Invention of something illegal that can be made out " of wheat When mOTt Americans were trying to represent the late Warren O Harding as a super-man, a statesman, and a heroic figure, this Colyum dissented --and brought down upon Itself the wrath of a majority not yet disillusioned. But now that dlullluHlonment la common, and even friends of Harding who eagerly accepted favors from him In life «hun Invitations to pay a. tribute at Ml grave, it »«m» necessary to supply a little corrective In the opposite dlrec- Hon. Warren G. Harding never was a fit man for the office of President, and his unfltneis ought to have been evident to reasonably well-read citizens before he was so much as ^ nominated. He made a horrible failure of the Job, not so ' much because of fault as because of utter Incompetence for the role that was thrust upon him. All that In clear enough now. What seems to be forgotten In the present disillusionment Is, that as a man he vraG extraordinarily amlablu. He was loved almost Involuntarily by all who came near him; he wa» a good friend, so loyal and trusting to all friends that friends were able to ruin him, and his reputation forever. The difficulty uncut obtaining a speaker for the dedication of the Haidlng memorial arises from the fact, that the memorial must be dedicated to a President. It' la unpleasant to be reminded of Harding In the role of President If the monument could stand solely for an American citlwn, often erring but great-hearted, loyal, playful, stand- Ing In awe of high-brows and experts, a score of million Americans might rejoice In It ytt, as a testimonial to * type peculiarly dear to their heart*. ,, SPEED --Manchester Guardian. Lord Derby, speaking at the Railway Centenary celebrations at Liverpool, referred disparagingly to the present crate for speed. And, Indeed, we may welt wonder what particular purpose Is served by just moving quickly. The modern world has been described as a place In which no one knows where he Is going but wants to go there faster and faster. To get along quickly provides at leoit the Illusion of achieving something and gives, a* well, a thrill of excitement, a sense of power and of danger which men always lov*. In the twilight of Roman civilization It is sold that people were especially fond of doge, perhaps because they are dumb and expect nothing from those who love them except food and drink, So It Is possible that In the twilight of a machine civilisation speed might hecome a sort of god because It Is slmple and Impersonal and directly within reach. And you can never go fast enough. For, however fast you go, It would be Just as true, philosophically speaking, to say that you were standing still. Even now, on A holiday, a large number of the ptople of this country climb Into vehicles and amuse themselves by Just moving. They stream along the wade, and policemen stand amongst them guiding and controlling the ·trearo, setting a. rhythm to It, tike priests. Martyrs die for speed and hearts aw broken for speed. Men who get lost In the de*ert run furiously until they drop from exhaustion. The running provides them with something to do which enables them to forget the awful fact of being test The whole universe Is la motion; dare not pause. Nor aare we.
