Wisconsin Rapids Daily Tribune (Newspaper) - October 11, 1923, Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin TRIBUNE TENTH 3140. WISCONSIN RAPIDS, WIS., THURSDAY. OCTOBER 11, 1923. Today Some; Minus Signs. V Cryntesthesia Saves Woman, War Does Not Pay. Why Noi Join? By Arthur (Copyright, 1923, by Star Company) THE STOCK MARKET had a. mi- nus attack yesterday, minus signs scattered all along. Something is frightening the. gentlemen that live by speculation, but what is it? Con- sult specialists in mail order business and you will learn that apart from diamonds and a. few other lux- uries, the people are buying better than ever. Nothing'to worry about for the present at .least. Professor Richet of the French Aca- demy of Medicine says woman pos- sesses a faculty, called "Cryptaesthe- sia." That's scientific name for in- tuition, woman's strange power to judge character at a glance, her abil- ity instantly to tell truth from false- hood. "Cryptaesthesia" is older than the French Academy of Medicine, older than the pyi-amid.% women practiced that faculty a hundred thousand years ago, when their husbands came wandering in late from the cave across the valley. It's their one safe- guard. PRICE THREE CENTS RUTH'S HOMERS WIN FOR YANKS Once more the "solution of the Ruhr situation" starts, with all ap- plauding. Big financiers that con- trol the German Govei-nment have arranged to get whatever they want. They think that they and Germany they coming first-will be able to sa- tisfy France and Belgium. Thgse two countries will take a great deal of satisfying. Meanwhile yesterday you could buy a billion- marks for less than a dollar. In other words, the American dollar in Ger- man money is worth two hundred and fifty million times what it was before the war. War doesn't pay. Professor Irving Fisher, of Yale thinks this country ought to join the League of Nations, and asks why we hesitate, when fifty-four other coun- tries have entered the League? Sup- pose fifty-four individuals bankrupt or half bankrupt, entered a Bankrupt- cy Club, and asked John D. Rockefel- ler. "Why don't you come in, we are all in." Rockefeller's answer to that club'would be the answer that the United States gives to the League of Nations. "Why did the fifty-four nations join the asked Professor Fisher. They joined because in addi- tion to being bankrupt or nearly they were afraid of each other, afraid of themselves. Their attitude was some- thing like that of the man goes to the police and asks to be locked up be- cause he thinks he is going crazy. This country isn't going crazy, and prefers to stay at large. Mr. Emmons who' is president of the Electric Railway Association, says public ownership means Socialist Government and an end of "a pros- perous sane nation." Mr. Emmons is unnecessarily wor- ried. What about the postoffice? That's government ownership, and quite suc- cessful. Nobody imagines that any private company would carry a let- ter from Miami to Seattle for two cents. What about the Panama Canal? That's government ownership and government construction also. Quite successful after private effort failed. It may be that Americans don't elect officials honest or capable enough to manage publicly owned monopolies. But they may do it some day. Private capacity and monopoly is a greater menace to national prosperity and saftity than government owner- ship. English schools are teaching a new kind of handwriting to the children. And so are some schools in the United States. The new style of wri- ting is something like Greek writing, each letter standing by itself, not fastened to the next letter. Tt may be BETTER, but it isn't as easy. It is better to write out "cat" in one sim- Continucd from page 2 THE WEATHER Cloudy tonight Friday, wers southeast portion tonight.

Few people of the thousands who make this community their home fully realize what Beauties they m'ay behold on' the Wisconsin Driver north of this city and north of village of Biron. A party of local were on Tuesday afternoon of Wil- bur F. Herschleb .aboard his new launch, have all united Mn the verdict that the river and the x-lakes caused by the darning of the river at both this city and Biron composes one of the real beauty spots of the state and offers great opportunity for the de- velopment of this community as a summer resort region. Few Taking Advantage Outside of a comparative few, noj one is taking advantage of the oppor- tunities offered by this wondrous beauty spot. On the east bank of the river near the Crooked Rift Rod Reel Club, who by the way -were the pioneers in that region among the citv folk, are a number of attractive cot- (tages and lodges. Gradually this sec- jtion has been sold off and the new owners have improved their property. Except for this small number, people generally have not taken real ad- vantage of the river nor do many re- alize what is offered. Beautiful Shore Lines The trip up the river revealed to the party a vast expanse of water available for pleasure boating, for fishing 'and hunting and for other ac- quatic pleasures. Compared to any of the northern lakes where people sought the wild and untarnished en- vironments and have thickly settled shores of these bodies of water with cottages and have put boats of :ul de- scriptions on the waters, Lake'Roche- leau (the name handed down for sev- eral years to the pond above the Biron dam) offers more in scenic beauty than many of the popular resorts up state. The shore lines are wooded densely in many ;places with luxurious growth, trees gracefully dipping their branch- es into the water, wooded sections ideal for cottages, islands resplendent with wild growth of all kinds affording privacy to the cottager in surround- ings, which many people travel hun- dreds of miles to seek. Truly this vast lake, for it must be regarded as a lake and not a river, because of its depth and its wide expanses, offer the tourist from the Illinois prairies and the people of this community who like the out-of-doors, n better summer re- Gives Harding Policy Credit For Progress (By Associated Press) Denver, Col., Oct. en- dorsement of President Coolidge's continuance of Harding's policies was given last night by John T. Adams, republican n a t i o n al committeeman here today in conference with the re- publican leaders and statesmen from six Rocky mountain states. Mr. Adams said, "The farmer and the laborer and the merchant know the distance they have travelled from 16-cent corn, unemployed, and the gloomy outlook of two years ago. "This improvement has taken place since the republican administration, and because of he continued, "the federal taxes have been reduced in the last two years. The six states represented in this confer- ence pay more than less this year then under the democratic tax law." Clouts Two Home Runs port than many of the inland lakes in the northern part, of this state. Long .Motor Trip The local party, thanks to the hos- pitality of Mr. Herschleb, enjoyed a long motor launch ride of fifteen miles up stream in Lake Rocheleau and that trip was not the extent of the distance which the launch might with safety travel. Limited by time the party could not go as far as was possible, for Mr. Herschleb states it is easy to navi- gate the stream within one-half mile of the Whiting-Plover dam. The ride upstream was indeed an eye-opener to members of the party who little conceived what beauties were in store for them. It likewise revealed to them the magnitude of Lake Rocheleau with all its possibilities as a summer re- sort site. A Fine Craft Mr. Herschleb's boat is a fine craft built by himselT and brother. It is a 25-foot craft with cabin and deck cap- able of seating fifteen people com- fortably and when fully FARMERS' NEED IS NOT POLITICAL SAYS 1EHROOT SENATOR FAVORS REGULATION OF.COAL INDUSTRY: URGES FARMERS COOPERATIVE OR- GANIZATIONS. (By Special Correspondent) cure for the ills of agriculture is not through political ac- tion but through ..well founded and seriously managed cooperative effort, Senator Irvine L. Lenroot declared in a speech at Marshfield before a packed house at the Adler Theater last eve- ning. "Agriculture has not had the same degree of prosperity as other forms of business, however it is less acute in Wisconsin than in any other state because of the large amount of dairying in this' state. The chief trou- ble today in agriculture is because there is no'level between the prices of the things the farmer buys and the prices he gets for his the senator' said. In addition to describ- ing the means by which fanners can get relief, Mr. Lenroot took occasion to talk upon the coal situation, in which he branded the increased prices for anthracite coal as unneceSsai'y and said that he intended to support the recommendations of the congressional commission investigating the industry to make the operators assume the ad- Great Babe Stars With Two Circuit Blows In 4-2 Win Pennock Outpitches McQuillan and Bentley; Yanks Play Snappy Ball AH Through Encounter and Led by the Brilliant Babe They Deserved Hard Earned Victory Giants Yankees....... 1 2 4 5 6 7 S 9 R H E ........0 1 0 00 1 0 0 0 2 92 ........0 1 0 2 1 0 0 0 0 4 10 0 THE LINEUPS cf; Dugan, 3b; Ruth, rf; R.

Herb .Pennock-sent his south paw slants over the side of the Giant boat and they took water in every inning but the second and sixth. The account of the ganie by.innings tells how the world series was evened. Bambino smashed out two homers in the second game of the series and was the big factor inHhe Yanks 4-2 win over the Giants. As Babe groes so goes the Yanks is the claim of experts and the game today bears out this statement. ribuneCandidates Should Act Promptly In Prize Race NO TIME TO LOSE FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO SHARE IN AWARDS While changing trains at the Union There are fifteen valuable awards in this list.

S. statesmen with a two weeks sight- seeing experience in Soviet Russia for the recognition of the Red government. Not for Political Action Mr. Lenroot said that certain con- gressmen were advocating political ac- tion to help the wheat farmers in par- ticular and agriculture in gen- eral by calling a special session of congress to subsidize the wheat far- mers by guaranty of a set price. He explained the folly of such action by saying that when the government guaranteed a definite price for wheat every farmer who could raise wheat during the next two years under that guaranty would produce an over of the product and after two years, the government loaded with wheat, would have to dump it on the i market at a huge loss to the govern- will have many conveniences passengers. The motor is a four cyl- inder, ifi horsepower Roberts niarine motor and averages a speed equal to 12 miles per hour. Although a large craft it does not draw much water even when loaded and makes possible the navigation of Lake Rocheleau at any time of year. The owner is one of Wisconsin Rapids' leading sports- men, who has diversified interests in the out-of-doors and his most recent hobby is, in the belief of many, the pioneer movement in about a. decided interest in the river with of its fine qualities for healthful recreation as well as contributing largely to the well developed boom now on for establishing both Lake Rocheleau and Lake Biron as a great summer resort site as proposed re- cently by T. A. Taylor of this city. I V> It 1 W.TO ll_ I illy completed ment niu] of hay. ag b.u, icnccs for the' condition there is now, the wheat farmers would have a far worse con- dition. Over supply of wheat is the underlying cause of the present finan- cial difficulties of the wheat farmers today, he said, and predicted that two years hence the government would be loaded up far greater than the mar- ket is today. This great supply would come, 'he declared; because .'of the guaranty or subsidy by the govern- ment to the wheat farmers. and there could be no discrimination between the one crop wheat favmfer and any other farmer who was entitled to the same consideration should he grow wheat.
