In Review
Hoover Goes Fishin’
Mayor Hits Cigarettes
May Day Hectic Affair
Fishing is a groat si,ort for
young and old alike. Children
undergo great physical punishment
at the hands of their parents to go
fishin liven the grown-ups will
often neglect their business to get
out on the banks for a little ‘ catch, ’j
Even President Hoover is an euer-|
getir, fisherman, lie does not dote
in the sport because ‘Silent Cal’
was a true fisherman and ‘Silent
Cal’ did not wade the streams in
high boots to be doing something
unioue for a president. They do j
it because it is truly satisfying to
their sportive desires.
Lust week-end President Hoover
Stole down to his special preserve
at Catoc.tin Furnace, Maryland, and.,
according to the more optimistic
dispatches, put in a rather success
ful day. Perhaps he didn’t catch
’nary a fish and wanted to have
his admirers believe he did; per
haps he caught more than the law
allowed him and wanted to conceal
the fact. Such action is only human
nature—even for an executive of the
nation. However, front page stories
should include an exact statement
of the ‘catch’ so the Izaak Walton
league of Pennsylvania could balance
the books on the President to pre
vent him catching all the 1,000
speckled trout they put in the pools
for him. Then, too, people in gen
eral will wonder whether their
president is a true fisherman or just
a type who always has a ‘fisher
man’s luck’ story that is thorough
ly convincing.
11FE, for a president of a na
J tion such as the United States,
is truly glorious. During the hectic
and more successful moments of his
administration the president lives
through all the infernos and Polly
anas that literary artists have been
able to create. It all requires a
great mental and physical strain j
and tin- man who thinks enough j
of the steady progression of national ;
affairs, which can only be assured
by a physically fit president, is to
be congratulated on his little xveek
end fishing jaunts which are so j
soothing to a heavily burdened
mind. Recreation from mental!
strain is necessary, for “Thinking,”
says Henry Ford, “is the hardest
work there is, which is the. probable
reason why so few engage in it.”
Turirfng to the more serious side
of national affairs one will see that 1
important matters are being pushed
through the legislative hopper with
unusual rapidity. The main topic of
discussion is the farm bill. Run
ning counter to the farm program
are other more temperamental
things such as Senator Hefliir’s
uproar in the Senate asking con
demnation of the recent attack up-j
on him of Brockton, Massachusetts,,
after he had delivered a Ku Klux j
Kin ii speech, President Hoover's
attempt to discover the ‘ wishbone’ i
of the prohibition situation, and
certain little squabbles about the
justice of allowing Secretary Mel
lon to remain at the head of the
treasury department because of his j
monetary interests in large com- !
panics. |
MAYOR Ralph S. Hauer of Rynn,
Massacnusetts, has ordered all
‘blatant advertising of cigarette
smoking girls' in his city abolished.
IK' said, “Get a ladder and either
paste paper over the posters, or
paint out the objectionable features
.They are an affront to
public deeoucx and have a tendency
to lower the moral standards and
destroy the charm of young girl
hood for modestx and good breed
ing, and ire a public insult to the
general conception of the sweetness
and high morality of our girls."
There seems to be widespread op
position against oxerstepping the
mark of decency by trying to cre
ate a youth demand for narcotics.

In The Golden Book for May, Mrs.
Carrie Chapman Catt, suffragette,
tells 1500 women at a meeting that
lipsticks still enslave their sex:
“You are still the great exploiter!
sex, as you will realize if you study
the advertisements which are wholly
based on appeals to your vanity.”
The question of such advertising
continues to be irritating and pre
dictions are life that some action,
such.as that* of Mayor Bauer’s, will
eventually go to the JSupieme Court
for an interpretation as to legality.
BILK one news story tells us
» » that Mrs. Minnie Kennedy is
facing a $50,000 breach of promise
suit in Seattle a nuttier one reminds
us that Miss Helen \Vills, whose
skill has won her the world’s best
recognition on the tennis courts, will
be presented at court at Bucking
ham I’alace May 9. Miss Wills will
appear before Queen Mary along
with 15 other American debutantes
and should feel highly honored for
the recognition.
The world seems to admire a sin
cere sportsman . or sportswoman or
a fighter of any kind and people
of this nature are being received
in the courts of the world with the
same gusto of a knight-errant of
old. Ability, however obtained,
goes a long way and the old ideas
of inherited and inborn traits do
not play such a role in recognition
of the modern hero. Miss Wills cer
tainly deserves the highest praise
for she is playing a commendable
part as a good will ambassador
during her European tour. May
there he more such Americans spend
the summer in Europe.
AY day lias passed again, and
•h’A how! The merry song of the
‘Internationale’ vibrated in prac
tically every sizable city in Europe
on May 1 as socialists, communists
and working men’s organizations
generally observed what they would
like to have made a gala event. In
the United (States May day is a
true festival without the usual cas
ualties that characterize European
celebrations of the event. Eight
people were killed, 7s seriously in
jured, and 600 arrested in Berlin,
several dead and many hurt in
Ko.yno, a mo,li was dispersed from
American embassy in Mexico City,
more than 020(1 arrested in Paris,
and general uprisings in Moscow
characterized the seriousness with
which Europe celebrated the 1920
May day.
MEXICO will now be a quiet and
peaceful place until another
Escobar or Aguirre are stirred to
lead rebellious hosts against the
military depardations of the stand
ing army. On May 2 the last of the
Aguirre brothers was captured. The

news dispatch says, ‘‘Scions ot a
family famous in the turbulent his
tory of Mexico, the three brothers
played leading parts in the insur
gent military operations of the lat

"captured in early days of the revo
lution. were immediately executed.
Such is the hectic manner of set
tling controversies in the cycle of
political life in Mexico. Late years,
however, have shown'some tendency j
toward more civilized and peaceful ;
methods. Peaceful arbitration of i
such things as the introduction of I

Economic penetration of conn- ,
tries by surplus capital of rich na- i
Uuns and the seeking of foreign j

this penetration will result in a
common understanding of peoples j
of the world and tend to promote j
world peace; they say that lack of
understanding and isolation tends to
create fear, suspicion, and under- :

Pipe Smoker
Has a “Kick”
All His Own
St. Paul, Minn.
Larus & Bro. Cc. June 1927
Richmond, Va.
About five years ago, after trying
out many different styles of pipes
j from the Missouri meerschaum to the
genuine meerschaum, including the
upside-down style made popular by
Vice-President Dawes, and experi
menting with just about all the to
baccos then on the market except
Edgeworth, I finally decided that pipe
smoking was ncft for me.
For the last year or so I noticed the
boys around the office here using i
Edgeworth to the exclusion of all j
other tobaccos and evidently getting
real pleasure from their pipes.
In April of this year I was in Canada
on a business trip and decided to take
another whirl at pipe-smoking. So I j
invested a good share of my savings j
in a pipe and a few cents additional '
for a can of Edgeworth.
From then on I have been figura
tively kicking myself around the block
| about once each day when I think of
i the five lean years I put in trying to
j get along without a pipe. However, I
! am trying to make up for lost time
j and' am succeeding quite well. Why
I failed to try Edgeworth long ago will
have to go down in history as an
unsolved question. But now that I
| have found it, the years ahead look
rosy to me.
Very truly yours,
Ben Bayer j
