A Monkey House League. Selfishness, a Power. Arthur Brisbane---- In big cities hundreds of thou- sands went for their holiday in auto- mobiles. A philosopher said "Most of the cars are not paid for. In thou- sands of cases they represent money that would have meant independence in old age." The automobiles represent money spent for health, pleasure and time saving NOW. Not one in ten is really independent in old age, nor j was he before automobiles came. Better buy a car, enjoy it, and use the added health and time saved to GETS TANKFUL OF GAS RE- work for independence. No car, wise- FUSES TO PAY: ATTENDANT ly used, ever made a man poor.

We have lots of money. Big men say brokers' loans must drop more to make things safe, which is childish. In proportion to total values, brokers' loans-are not high. They are lower, proportionately, than in any other line of business. The so-called big men are really little men, as you realize when you meet any of them, and they can't get used to the bigger figures that came after the war. P. you are short of which is always foolish, look out fo a large, red bull that may cross you path. He's not far away. The League for Sexual Reform gathered in Copenhagen, says it wil "free human beings from the feeling o2 sin and crime in the field of thei deepest emotions." In this part o: the world many are doing well in that direction without help from any league, It has taken human beings a mil- lion years to acquire elementary ideas of decency and, unfortxinately, no league is needed to put them back whore they were. Such a league should meet in the monkey house, with object lessons close at hand. Bolshevism gave peasants the land, taking it from worthless nobles. That suited the peasants. Then bolshevism told the peasants how much they might charge foi their crops, how much they must brins; to the cities, etc. That did NOT suit the peasants. They cut down wheat acreage, causing dan- gerous shortage, and Russia is look- ing everywhere for cash wheat, with immediate delivery, and ships to carry it. You can not safely intei-fere with man's most important mainspring, which is SELFISHNESS. a farmer about eight miles from Janesville on state Highway 20. The abandoned car was a Chevrolet coupe. With only a meager description of the driver of the car, a large force of deputies, under the person- al command of Sheriff H. B. Mose- ly of Rock county, were scouring the county in an attempt to appre- hend the driver. Woman Saw Driver The driver was seen by a Chicago woman who had stopped her car at the filling station at the time May- lord began his strange and futile ride. This woman, after reporting the occurrence to Clinton officials, left without giving her name. She said she drove into the filling station about o'clock Tuesday night and saw Maylord pumping gasoline into a new Chevrolet coupe which was occupied by a young man. As Maylord screwed the cap on the gasoline tank, the driver sud- denly started the engine and com- menced to drive away. Here, you haven't paid Maylord shouted, running after the nachine. No, and I don't intend she said she heard the driver shout >ack. Striving to repay some of the hospi- tality of the state where he is va- cationing, President Coolidge invit- ed Governor Fred R. Zimmerman of Wisconsin to be his guest today and tonight at the summer White House. Instructions had been left by Mr. Coolidge for one of the White House cars to be sent to Superior to take the rovernor to Cedar Island lodge. To avail himself of the invitation the latter had re- mained overnight in where he had come to attend the Fourth of July celebrations. Telegrams Pour In Governor Zimmerman was among the hundreds who Wednesday con- veyed their greetings to the chief executive on the occasion of his fifty ixth birthday. Telegrams reached the White House by the score from all parts of the world, but Mr. Coolidge at the time paid little at- tention to them, preferring to pass birthday long enough to invite newspapermen and press photo- graphers to the lodge. He shared his great birthday cake with them and took them along on a short fishing expedition. In this way his guests saw_ him catch five fish in tLe course of about half an hour, and witnessed ACTS, BASEBALL GAMES, AND FIREWORKS ATTRACT PEO PLE FROM ALL OVER CEN TRAL WISCONSIN his triumph when he drew two of these on the same line. President Coolidge led his guests up the river from the lodge into a quiet pool with thick overhanging forest to the edge. He sat upright in the of his canoe with Eob Roy, his favorite collie, at his back, and John Larock, his Indian guide, paddling the shell from the stern. Deliberate Fisherman The surface of the lake was peri- odically studdied with the splash of jumping trout. Larock led the chief executive under one of the banks where the rings appeared oftener and thicker. With quiet deliberate castings, Mr. Coolidge flung his flies as close as possible to the center of the disturbance. Little-luck came at first. Dressed a red striped mackinaw, khaki his anniversary in the quietest man- ner of any year since he became chief executive. President Coolidge, however, abandoned his determination of hav- ing no special celebration on his trousers and high laced boots and wearing a western ten gallon hat, Mr. Coolidge began perspiring no- ticeably. Still he persevered. He was soon rewarded. While drawing his first catch, a second trout snapped at the black gnat fly More than people attended one of the most successful Fourth of July celebrations ever staged in this city at the Lincoln athletic fiek yesterday. _ Exactly 4400 adult admission tickets were sold at the gates anc it is estimated that all the children under 12 years of age will make the total attendance very nearly 7000. No definite check-up has been completed by the committee at this time, but the men in charge feel cer- tain that with all the funds that have been pledged and received the celebration will be financially suc- cessful. Committee Pleased "The committee is very well pleased with the manner in which the crowds turned was the statement of W. J. Taylor, general chairman of the committee, this morning. The musical and acrobatic acts were well arranged and presented a variety which is very seldomly found in outdoor attractions of this nature.

With great jubilation Mr. Coolidge waved his two victims at his observers. Three more catches followed in rapid succession. At each Mr. Cool- idge's spirits' heightened and Larock grinned wider. Finally Mr. Coolidge gave the word to turn back. 'Missus" Admires Catch Mrs. Coolidge, dressed as usual in TION t Hope springs eternal. And, foi tunately for human beings, a majoi ity of us "listen with credulity the whispers of fancy, and pursu with eagerness the phantoms o: hope; expect that age will perform the promises of youth, and that the deficiencies of the piesent day wil be supplied by the morrow." In Reno, Cornelius Vanderbilt jr., recently divorced, married a charm- ing lady, divorced the clay before. Instead of slackening speed, the Iriver continued to pull away, and he car shot down the street, carry- ng the shouting Maylord on his erch in the rear, she said. Today bloodhounds were brought from Mauston, Wis., in hope -that they might scent a clew. Checking Up on Car Rock county officials are attempt- ing to establish ownership of the abandoned car. A check with the as- sembling plant at Janesville showed that the Chevrolet had been as- sembled at the St. Louis plant. The car had a spare tire cover bearing the name of a Rockford, III, deal- bright red .-.ports coat, met the re- turning party.

Sheriff Mosely checked this clew, but the dealer denied having sold the car, after learning the serial number. Lynn Whaley, Rock county coron- er, is expected to impanel a coron- er's jury this morning and take it to view the body, the abandoned car and the place where Maylord was found dead. An inquest may be held later today, he said. The slain man lived with a daugh- ter and was employed by his son-in- law, Bert Day. The bloodhounds, which belong to E. P. Senogles, Vlauston, probably will be taken to :he scene of the abandonment of the car, Sheriff Mosely indicated The license plates on the car had 3een taken, but identification was nade through the serial number. ing a fifty cent nightly fee for the use of the Wisconsin Rapids tourist camp was voiced by Alderman Fred Whitrock at the monthly meeting of the city council, held Tuesday eve- ning in the council chambers at the city hall. He declared that he has received many complaints on the pay camp, both from tourists and local merchants, who feel that the prac- tice is driving motorists away from the city and spoiling their transient trade. Defends Camp _ His remarks included a declara- tion that the local camp is not equip- ped nor patroled in such a way that a fee can be honestly levied. Alder- man H. C. Demitz, member of the park board which has charge of the camp, refuted Mr. Whitrock's state- ments and asserted that he had nev- er heard a single complaint regis- miration. The fish were weighed and the largest proved to be a three and one half pound rainbow trout. For a remembrance of the occa- sion Mr. Coolidge was finally photo- graphed with his guests about him. No other visitors came to Cedar Island lodge during the day. tered. He also stated that a survey was made before it was decided to make the local tourist haven a pay camp, and that per cent of the people motoring through Wisconsin Rapids voted as favoring the pay- ment of a small fee, inasmuch as they felt they were receiving better protection because of it.

The baseball game between Wau- sau and Wisconsin Rapids was easi- ly the feature of the afternoon as was the Seneca-Arpin game in the morning. The Rapids team evened things up with Wausau for the de- feat handed them last Sunday at the latter city by winning a shut- out game, 4 to 0. The evening crowd was much larger than the one attending in the afternoon. More than 1SOO cars were parked in the school ground parking space and in the vicinity of the field streets were lined on both sides with automobiles. The traffic situation was well handled by the police department under the direc- tion of Chief of Police R. S. Payne. "It was one of the largest crowds handled by the local force and I don't believe that even a fender was was the chief's comment on the traffic situation.

Late in the afternoon word was received that the senator was speak- ing at a klan rally in Jackson, Mich., and obviously would not be able to address the Long Island meeting. The klansmen, who had spent the day in various ceremonies then disbanded. he said, was to keep out the "tin can tourists" and undesirables, who will not stop to camp where they must pay for the privilege. A heated debate resulted, with Al- derman Demitz defending the pres- ent method of conducting the camp and Alderman Whitrock continuing in his assertions that it is not de- sirable to charge for the use of the camp.
