The only project we Vnow of which approaches It In futil-ty la a request to keep an airplane Movllle is achieving fame. She starved out the chain store-after two years it closed its doors and 'took its departure with it' to Kings-ley to see how the 'pickings' might be there. Moville has taken the Big-4 fair away from Sioux City. It is Mo-ville's home-owning merchants and farmers that did it. Ten thousand migratory chain clerks could never have turned the trick. Last spring, Mrs. Mamie R. Greenfield, representing the Institute of Social and Religiotjs Research, selected several Iowa towns, and spent a week in - each one to study the life and spirit of the town. She has selected Moville as the best example of what a town ought to be. She reports regarding the towns she studied: "Each one has some distinction, and all have some good features; but Moville has the most unified community spirit and the most definite attitude as to what the small town can be. "I was in one other town that is situated much like Moville and I found little but jealousy and complaint of the big town. Nearly everybody criticised and laid blame upon everybody else. They' need a mayor and an editor and a preacher or two such us Moville has, to say nothing of some women who will quilt together pleasantly instead of gossiping about some other group." Now Moville. is not a big town. And she is not wasting her breath "boosting" for population statistics. She is spending her time doing the work that lies at her door. If Moville had twenty times her present population, and they were transient hired men-chain store clerks-she would never be picked as a town worthy of mention. Migratory hired men never build towns or cities of distinction-they merely fleece the town for their absentee boss. And Moville isn't perfect-we have been on her streets enough to know. She has her jealousies and her rivalries. But she has, never theless, a spirit that shines like the aun at noonday. We have defined that spirit like this- ' - Her citizens love their town more than they hate each other. Now you may think that a sort of 'left-handed' compliment. But let � it stand that way. When you find- a town that can meet that test, you may be sure it is u town worth knowing-a town of distinction and power. When you find a town of that sort, the chain store simply cannot exist in it. We mean, a town where the citizens love their town more than they hato each other-a town where the town folks and the farm folks have that spirit toward ouch other. If the town folks live to fleece the farm folks instead of to serve them, then the farm folks may support the chain store or the mail order house. And no town can live off itself. So just put this down-Moville'i distinction lies in the fact that her people, farm folks and town folks, love their town more than they hate each other. When we - get independent merchants who ,'love their cause more than they hate each other, we shull have the chain systems on the run Where you find independent merchants who would rather see the chain store get the business than to see their independent rival get it- who hate each other more than they love their independence-the chain store will flourish and will put them all out of business. When we get a Labor Movement in which the members within each craft union, and the craft unions in their attitude toward other craft unions, love their common cause of justice and humanity more than they hate each other, we Hhall have a Labor Movement that will change the 'face of society. When we get Farm Oroganlza-tions in which members within each organization, and the organizations in their attitude toward one another, love equality for agriculture more than, they hate each other, we shall achieve equality for agriculture. So you may just put this down: In the town or city or orguniia tion whose members have some love and loyalty together that is greater than their hate toward each other, there you will find distinction and power. There will be competitions and rivalries, of course; but they will be of the generous, sportsmanlike sort. Where the people of a country love their national ideal-the spirit of the flag-more than they hate each other, that country is safe accident out of the paper. And be- Those people will not accept things lieve it or not. we have been the re- as they are. They will love things cipient of such requests. However, as they ought to be, and battle for there waa a man who appropriated them together. That is patriotism a windmill in Pawnee county sever- It is the power of these loves al years ago. and hid it.-Lamed and loyalties that saves men from (Kan.) Tiller and Toller. being migratory hirelings, chain Thomas E. RAy% called at The Mail office Monday "with a line of novelties for sale, f Before stating his business Mr. Ray told us he had heard his father and mother speak Moville and Schaller when he was a boy nt home in Bozeman, Mont. In the course of conversation we learned that his father is Ed Ray, who was a blacksmith here in the early days and led the Moville band. We told him we knew Ed Ray well and that we played cornet with him. Knowing that Mrs. Ray is n sister of Charlie Hodges, we told the young man that his uncle lives here. This brought about a meeting for the first time, as the former was born after the family left here. Mr. and Mrs. Ray left Moville in March, 1891, three months before the flood, for Bozeman, Mont., and there they still reside. Mrs. Ray suffered a stroke of paralysis last May. The Rays came to Moville from Schaller, where Ed's father was the first mayor. YORK COLLEGE TRIO GIVES FINE CONCERT A high class musical program was given in the U.
