Second Class Matter Death is free from the restraint of fortune the 1 earth takes everything which it has brot forth WHY THE LIE rpHE Spanisli frovernment it would seem owes the world some explanation of the false report given out officially that the aviators who are now lost made a safe landing in the Azores at the end of their first days flight That was a piece of official foolishness to say the least It may also be partly to blame for a tragedy If the airmen are not the hope that they will be dwindled loss may very well be due to the delay in starting the search which was caused by the false report of their safety which was announced in Madrid Vessels along their line of flight which would otherwise have been alert to watch for them may have passed close by without noticing The naval vessels which started out 24 hours late to comb the sea between Europe and the Azores would have started sooner were it not for that bragging false hood of the de Rivera government And even five hours in the case of a plane forced down on the Atlantic may spell the difference be tween life and death A flimsy airplane is quickly battered to pieces by the sea but it will float its hu man cargo for a few hours Help in time will save hours late it might as well never be attempted PEACE IN INDUSTRY OOME of the most vital changes in the new world in which we are living are changes which we little notice For example the newspapers used to have much to print about strikes and other unhappy de velopments in industry We rarely hear of strikes now in the United States When the more intelligent employers came to their senses and realized that high wages and reasonable hours meant contented men and women with money and a more widely distributed prosperity It took generations for em pyera to arrive at this iA large clothing manufacturing concern many years ago let its employes have 7500000 worth of stpck at a reduced figure Recently on their fiftieth anniversary the principal owners of this concern gave their employes the chance to buy more stock at one third the market price This amounted to a gift of The day of slavery Is long past This is an indus trial age of coworkers IT MUST BE CONSTRUCTIVE CJOME preachers who pride themselves that they do not preach an outworn theology and beliefs that are fading out of mind have not succeeded In build ing up a philosophy of life that is sufficiently appeal ing or constructive to appeal to young people in this changed world in which we live An attack on old beliefs a declaration in favor of modern opinions In mere generalities or a weak nega tive preaching are worse than useless in this day when boys and girls ask more questions than their fathers and mothers did The oldfashioned Sunday school lesson and the old fashioned preaching do not meet todays problems and todays needs But neither does negative preachlngor the expression of trite generalities Itis the principal business of the pulpittoday to show that Christianity is not a dogma or a system of religion but a way of life DWIGHT MORROW AGAIN TT IS said that Dwight Morrow American ambassa dor played a large part in smoothing out the dif ferences and

flow Like many of the acts of this pro fesslonal reformer it smacks of fanaticism And thi case of prohibition should not rest on fanaticism That near beer is used for purposes Is not to he accepted aa a reason for banishing it This Is true of other soft drinks Even water has been used for this purpose Any fairminded person knows that the eighteenth amendment was not designed to re strict the use of clearly nonintoxicating beverages To take the position that it doesand act accordingly Is to bring into tlie prohibition enforcement field an element of unreasonableness that cannot but redound to the detriment of the eighteenth amendment and the principle for which it stands INVESTIGATING CANCER A RESOLUTION recently introduced in the U S senate calls for the appointment of a committee to make an

Automobila manufacturers are interested in UIB possibilities of the front wheel drive a method of applying the power to the forward wheels of the car In stead of the rear ones as has been the practica to date This may be the next development in motor car building and its strongest claim Ja said to be greater handling at high USIBMB It has taught the indepen dent merchants that they mus adopt business methods in buying as wen wen tthc independent merchant neen that he docs not buy He is supporting an army of travel ing men from 1 dozen wholesale houses who duplicate each others work It has been proved that the cost of getting goods from the job bers who support a fleet of sales men or drummers which is n more appropriate name for them Is greater than the retailer gets for selling his wares to the public A number of organizations have rown up within the last year or two and have completed organiza tions and plans by which n part of Tha front wheel drive may be compared In a degree to the air plane The plane is not pushed but pulled by the propeller The screw in a ships stern pushes the vessel and the rear wheels of the modern motor car act the same way In the front wheel drlva the entire car is pulled along the road nnd because of this centralization of the power unit in front certain difficulties ara safd to have been overcome The pulling of an airplane Into the air pressure gives it steadiness in control A propeller at the stern a piano would tend to disturb balance in handling The front wheel drive wouldact largely to in crease steadiness A falling objects heavier end comes down first and the direction therefore is more con sistent To make the front end of a motor car the heavier one with ths power applied there would give t greater steadiness Side sway of the rear such as is now found in ft good many cars would be absent m the front wheel drive according engineers 1 DOING THE BIGHT THING Cednr Falls Record Some of the wot newspapers do not seem to
