Its influence is judged ) its lack of personality and it is deemed what it really is. a mere buncotnbing institution try ing to find a position where, after election it can seek favors from either side ahould the political irinds bear men of divergent opin ions into office. That is not a mw role in newspapers. It is the old gag of an attempt on the part of men who have not manhood enough to stand up and say what the) think to bind; tin readers of their papers in holiaveing they are t r i i iu to hpiw a high and noble purpose, Aiiah . their effoi l and see for J otimelf If it is not tine.

This record will have a practical value for future drives. Bach committee in charge of Red Cross, Liberty Loartoraome other kind if I government drive can have access to the same record. This will not only be a great conven knee to each committee, but it would also avoid doing an injustice to contributors who have been over generous. Incidentally it would exj)o.se the professional hyocrites, each of whom pretends to hnve contributed to other drives. The number of these hypo elites is considerable. Aside from the practical value there would be secondarily a historical value of a record of this kind. When our soldier bos come home the record would tell the storv to them as to who were their real friends and who were simply noisv pretenders. Such a record would be a Doomsday Book for many a stingy highbrow who aspires to political or social prominence The names of patriotic campaign work ers also should be recorded.
